It's been a while since my last real update, and for most of the time I've felt that life has been very shitty. Life hasn't been very shitty, but it's felt that way to me, which is why I haven't been posting.
The main problem is that my brain feels very fractured, and I'm unable to concentrate on more than one thing. Since there's at least half a dozen things I want to deal with, I haven't been getting much done as a result. My apologies to the people I'm supposed to be working with on those things.
Physically I'm stuck in a rut. I'm having serious difficulty getting out of bed in the morning, I've slid a bit off my diet, and I seem to lack the willpower to get back on to it again and as a result I feel I've gotten fatter again. Part of that problem is that I have actually put on a lot of muscle across the shoulders and chest, and as a result a lot of the clothing I have doesn't fit all that well any more, and I'm going to have to go up a size in shirts.
Another problem is that this winter is effecting (is that the right spelling?) me a hell of a lot more than previous winters. It's not as cold as it was last year (and for that I'm thankful) but it feels colder.
I'll get over it, I always do, but I just feel really crappy at the moment.
However, the most important thing at the moment is how this changes my plans.
I am not going down to Melbourne for my birthday. Much as I would like to, I had to change my mind. With the move to Melbourne only about 8 months away, I really need to save my money, so I'm going to stay at home instead. The weekend I was going to be having my birthday dinner here in Brisbane, I will instead be spending the weekend up with my parents and brother who'll be visiting for his birthday. So, I've moved my birthday dinner to the actual night of my birthday, the 26th.
So, you're all invited to dinner at Hogs Breath Cafe at Indooroopilly on Saturday the 26th of August. I want to make the booking the week before, so can people let me know if they want to come by the 20th.
Now I'll just pretend I'm working again. I'd love to just take a week off and recover from life, but at the moment I can't afford to.
