play that funky music

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Want to get out of this funk. I thought I was out of it when I increased my vitamin D a couple of weeks ago, but it only lasted a week. Just gotta keep destructive thoughts out of my head, occupy my head with constructive thoughts. Make it habit.

On a similar note, I signed up for classes at coursera. I thought it I occupied my brain with interesting learning things, well, that's fun. All the classes I like started in the spring...or so I thought. It appears that one class started weeks ago, I had no idea. Now I have missed quizzes and I am way behind. I think I'm going to have to drop the class. Between the overtime, and trying to exercise at the health club, and another 2 weeks of diving classes, then Hawaii, I don't think I'm going to be able to catch up. This concerns me not so much for this class I signed up for, but because I want so much to learn web design. I finally have everything I wanted in order to take a class, but I'm not sure it's realistic for me to actually take one without getting overly stressed out.

Been a zombie at work, just pushing through the tired to get the bare minimum done. Yesterday leftover food from a baby shower called to me. I swallowed whole giant cupcakes! Was tasty, but I didn't really enjoy any of it because I was already full.

    I think meditation is also a very good suggestion, too, thank you. I am going to chill out. Just because it seems like other people can do more than me doesn't mean I have to do any more than what's right for me.

    I took a nap and put the heating pad on all my aching muscles. Felt 100 times better after that. Didn't have to go into work early, so I made some chicken masala in the crock pot and rode my bike into work, which always makes things better. Had a meeting today- and realized how alienated I've been feeling, not having anyone around I can relate too, more on that later.

    As one who fighting to 'stay busy busy busy' in order to cope with some stuff I need some time and distance from - I agree with DS. There is a certain point where you're just so active your running in circles and forcing things that should be fun to be fun - and we all know that forcing stuff never works out right in the end. Perhaps some meditation or nature walking is in order - something that helps you find your center so you can bring balance back into your life. Maybe take your teddy bear out for a photo shoot. Show her the sites...

    Soooo.... i am just going out on a limb here and point out that you are over scheduled and probably should stop trying to force fun into your life until after you stop working stupid amounts of overtime. Cause it really sounds like you are spending all your energy on work and don't have any left for "fun" things. Or more precisely, the lack of energy is making things that would otherwise be fun, stressful instead. Just me being bossy and lovin ya!! HUGS!!!!!
