It's been hotter and more humid than hell the last few days. I just heard the first rumbles of thunder, and I'm looking forward to listening to the rain hit the roof. This week so far has been much better. I'm still not 100%, but I'm a lot better than I was last week. Now… Continue reading I do so love a good thunderstorm
I feel a lot better today. More focused, more driven, more... normal. I got up at a decent time this morning (to be fair, at some point over night I moved from the bed to the couch that I have no recollection of doing), hung out with Mike for a little bit, went to the… Continue reading Back in the saddle again
How is it the end of August all ready? I don't have a lot to talk about from last week. Our first concert of the season (rescheduled from last year), was last week. It was great to get out again for live music and get back in the scene. We've got another one in a… Continue reading Week in Review – 08.22.2021
I realized today after I ran errands, went to the gym, picked up groceries, etc. that I hadn't eaten anything all day. No wonder I felt like garbage at the gym. So of course, without meaning to, I took a three hour nap after I ate dinner. Which means that I probably won't sleep much… Continue reading I accidentally took a three hour nap. Crap.
I've been texting my tattoo artist all morning about finishing up my half sleeve and a small one we're doing on my foot next week. I'm actually ditching my therapy session next week to do this. We've had this appointment scheduled since April, and it would be impossible to reschedule, so I'm skipping therapy. This… Continue reading Chase the sky into the ocean
I started feeling a little more like myself today. Once I recognized the weight of the little bit of depression I was experiencing around my neck, I really started to feel it. But today the fog has lifted, somewhat, and I'm feeling a little more normal. I just need to keep pushing, but also taking… Continue reading A quick update
Minor depression edition. I seem to be battling some minor depression right now. I swear, it's the same time every year. It last for a few weeks and then it just goes away. I'm tired all of the time, I have no motivation, I hate my job, I don't want to look for a job,… Continue reading Week in review – 08.15.2021
It seems to only make sense that I just talked about success that now we talk about failure. I was listening to Chris Hardwick's ID10T podcast thee other day, and John Cena was on. They talked about how you measure failure, and it kind of resonated with me, especially after just having talked about its… Continue reading Failure
I had an interesting discussion with my therapist this week: what is success? Success is as much a societal construct as it is personal. When you think of successful people, what do you think of? Money? Power? Fame? Respect? There seems to be a general consensus that success is all of those things. We assume… Continue reading What is success?
There was an issue this weekend that essentially amounted to employee theft. Needless to say it was immediate termination once it came to light. I always feel bad when it comes down to these things, even when they do it to themselves. It sucks. But unfortunately it's part of the job. Mike gave me a… Continue reading Sometimes doing my job sucks
