I started back at university again this month. Not that I needed more on my plate right now, but I went for it anyways. Even though I often cursed my decision for going back to school last year, I am really happy I did. being able to put last years course on my CV is just plain showing off at this point and I love it. I assume the same will happen again this year: Sure I will be tired and cranky a lot, but in the long run I will forget I was ever tired and appreciate the extra ECTs points and diplomas.
Overall, I'm very happy.
Tired, but happy!
I do my "trampy toes" thing even more than usual. I'm not sure I can explain why, but having dramatic and colourful toenails makes me very happy. It has a good effort vs. effect ratio and it makes me happy every time I notice it. Maybe because my "seen" aesthetic is so natural and muted, it feels good to have a hidden, colourful secret that only Mr Igor and I see in person.
I even started going to the gym in December last year. It seemed like a good idea since my job is so sedentary. I didn't think I would enjoy it, but now I go with Mr Igor, Engineer Friend and Sociologist Friend at least once a week! It's actually been quite fun and I enjoy going as a group like that.
So, the only thing missing in my life right now?
My sleep is still lagging.I just don't get enough sleep, period. And when do I try to sleep, it isn't easy to fall asleep and it doesn't feel very satisfying once I wake up. I guess I can blame my genes for this one?
I purchased and will experiment with some sleep aids. Maybe I can find something that will help. At least I guess it won't hurt? It's probably not easy to tell for sure if something helps or not.
Also... I love the utter nerdiness of this packaging!
