This morning I went food shopping and did a fridge clear out. This afternoon I went and saw Coraline 3D which was gorgeous. I'm not quite convinced that 3D is worth the money, or the effort that went into producing it, but I appreciated the advance in tech that means you don't have to wear red/green glasses.

This evening I was suffering mild going-to-work-tomorrow anxiety, which nosedived into a sulk when I realised a perfect job was closing tomorrow that I'd only just found out about.

Pah, says [personal profile] samvara, you've written hundreds of those! Hand in a crap one! which inspired me enough to open and word document and start hacking and pasting. So now I have a mostly complete (crappy) three page selection criteria and a filled out vacancy form attached to an email to my work-self which reads 'call them an hassle them about submitting via email'.

Which has been a rather awesome exercise in 'anxiety that makes me freeze, or fret uselessly' versus 'using controlled adrenaline to get things done'. Take note, self.

Also, notes to self about the last few days: )

I've been having a stressful time of it at work, almost all of it due to 'I avoided it until it stopped going away, which it then blew up in my face' sort of issues. I'm still in the thick of it, and I'm not sure what happens next.

Either way, whatever is going to happen, and whatever I can make happen, regardless; the world goes on, I'll still be here, my friends and beloveds and home will still be here. This is just a blip of a couple of weeks on the radar.

Things that have helped me keep perspective over the last week, and reminded me that the world is an okay place:

My housemate [profile] black_samvara for being unbelievably supportive, and amazing, and *flaps wordlessly* along with [personal profile] prk, [personal profile] transcendancing especially. I don't know what I did in a previous life to deserve you guys, but I'm glad I did it.

Fand by Laney Cairo. Magic and calm and peace.

On a similar note: This Australian Story, about a man who has fathered six kids for five mothers.

The songs of Lisa Mitchell.

The songs of Josh Pyke
Thursday 15th Jan: blood test for hormones, which is (afaik) unrelated to also getting three moles removed for biopsy/general removal.

Via Making Light. A 15 minute TED (think: lexicographer!) talk about free time, TV, the internet, participation and community. And a lot of me going, "oh, hell yes" and being transfixed. Critical thought later, maybe.

For the first time, society forced onto an enormous number of its citizens the requirement to manage something they had never had to manage before--free time...
