Anxiety lifting

Friday, August 27, 2010

When I arrived at work yesterday my adrenline was up over my eyebrows and I felt desperate when I realised I hardly knew how to start the editing coputer that I am supposed to use for layout... went to the chied editor and told him that I just could not do this alone and he assigned a woman to help me get started.
She worked with me throughout the day - I could do some things once I got the hang of it and at the end of the day I had twelve pages started and some of them even finished... I love working in Indesign and I am slowly starting to grasp the mysteries of Newspilot. I still have a long way to go but after those first really bad moments I had fun, I do love to learn stuff and I do love to creat a paper by arranging tet and photos in a good-enough layout. I have no ambitions to make the best paper ever... this time, I am happy if I jus finish it. It will require me working all weekend but I donĀ“t mind, just as long as it gets finishe until thursday morning when it will be printed. That deadline cannot be stretched!

Food worked - I had lunch in a box and had a grilled chicken when I got home and as I even had time to leave my car at the repairshop and get it back some hours later I even got some exercise since I brought the bike and biked back to work after leaving the car.

Today I will spend all day editing again - I am exited because it is really fun. True, it would be funnier if I knew more but it will come. Practice makes - not perfect but good enough!

    You're doing great! Learning about yourself. I'm learning that when I get stressed, I feel more grounded after eatign brown rice with leafy greens such as steamed kale or bok choy. Funny but it seems to help me calm down.

    Best wishses for a great week!

    I get those "before" jitters / anxiety, too... but once started on a task, they seem to calm down.

    You're doing great! Hang in.
