Still Here

Posted 2010.07.05 9.16 in Life On Drugs, Pointless Blather by Stephanie

Well Canada Day came and went, as did the I’m-not-working-today-Friday, and then the weekend. Four-day weekends are nice. Very nice. Too nice. I could get used to that. No, I am used to that.

A huge thank-you to my friends and family who came to visit on Canada Day, and who helped out with so much stuff and in so many ways. I get to feeling like everyone else does all the work, all I do is provide a venue and a few snacks and things while everyone else makes it happen. Makes me feel guilty. Next year, either I wanna be healthy and energetic enough to actually throw the party, or I don’t want to do it at all.

Speaking of health… I ran out of cryptospam on Canada Day and took till yesterday to get my new perscription filled. I still haven’t taken it though, so going on four days since suddenly not having the anti-depressants in me.

At first it felt ok, there was a little boost of energy and my mood wasn’t too bad. Then the dizziness started, and the mood-swings, and now I’m just feeling listless and cruddy. Though I’m also at work, which may play a small part in that.

Sigh. I guess I’d better start taking it again, just in case.

Still no progress on the ‘Darkest Post’ stuff, just procrastination and denial.

Tax Time

That time once again. It seems like it comes around every year like this. Income tax. Bleargh.

I try not to procrastinate, I try to be good. Well when I say try, what I mean is that I think about it. I start thinking about doing my taxes in February. It’s a chore though and seems tiring, so thinking about it makes me sleepy.

Then March comes around, and I think about it some more. By March, all the various forms and receipts have usually arrived in the mail. I know I ought to sit down and do it. It’s not too bad if I space it out over two weekends – a couple hours the first weekend to sort & add up my receipts, then a couple hours the next weekend to fill in all the forms and do the maths and figuring.

Then April comes in and I realize I really have to get serious and set aside some time for it. Maybe just one weekend instead of two. If I spread it out over Saturday and Sunday, then it’s not so bad, two smaller chores instead of one big one. Still, it’s no fun, and all the maths and numbers make my head hurt. Then the headache makes me sleepy.

And ultimately, I find myself with about 30 hours to the deadline, sitting up at 2:00am with a calculator, notepad, and a zillion slips of paper, trying to get through it without falling asleep.

Next time, I’ll be good. I won’t procrastinate.

Come to think of it, I’ve got like 30 hours or so left, I might just go to bed and finish this stuff later.

Credit Card Fraud!

So I’m going through my accounting stuff today. It’s a whole bunch of no-fun so I tend to procrastinate it as long as I can. And believe me, I can procrastinate like the pros. In fact, I majored in procrastination. My thesis on procrastination was awesome. Or at least, it will be, when I finish it. And I will. Eventually. Ok I didn’t actually major in procrastination – I mean, I meant to go to university but something came up. Possibly something shiney, or with blinking lights… But I digress.
