Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hello! You are awesome and lovely and I am so excited.

General feelings and preferences )

Specific requests )

Once again, thank you so much for writing for me. I'm so excited to read what you come up with!

I just cleaned the shelf above my desk! Which is very nice, and now I just need to shove some money into my "storage solutions" fund so I can buy some decent boxes next month.

I think the next job is to clean out my rubbish bins.

I've still got a whole load of stuff in carrier bags (and black sacks) - some of which need to go straight up to the attic, others of which still need to be sorted through and culled, etc. But I'm slowly starting to get better control over my belongings, which is quite nice.

Planning is a bit difficult, or so it seems to me, but I'm working on it one step at a time. And I'm actually getting washing done regularly which is really nice for my mental state, it turns out.

So, yes. Slow progress. But progress!
randomling: Nine and Rose hold hands on their way back to the TARDIS (TARDIS is home)
So I will just have to start dealing with things.

It appears to be three tiny things time )

* Inbox zero!!!! Has been a long time coming, so: FINALLY.

* Does anyone have any (online, preferably) shop recommendations for storage solutions for paper/stationery/etc? Ikea have some lovely things, but their delivery charge is exorbitant and I most certainly don't have the spoons for a trip to Croydon any time soon.

* Night Vale live next month EEEEEE.

* Work is going well! Have resolved some slightly snarly client stuff and am getting things done. Last couple of weeks have been really rough but I'm working my way back to where I want to be.

* I am not getting much (any) writing done and I'm slightly panicking about that 'cause it's Exchange Season and i have no idea what I want to nominate for Yuletide.

* I'm also not reading much, but this is an Ongoing Pattern and has been for at least a year. I have zero attention span.

* I think that's it for now!
randomling: Emma Swann (Once Upon A Time) looks sad. (sad)
Because this really helps, apparently.

On and on! )

And not doing it.

I suppose this is because I feel a bit like my life is essentially quite boring. I'm currently freelancing, and trying to work my way up into at least decent part-time hours without falling over, which is proving challenging because I fall over at the least little bit of stress.

(And I mean last week was almost a complete bust because of this and this week is all about the recovery.)

I'm still learning German. I think I'm getting a bit more fluent. I'm trying to get a handle on what kind of future I might have. That's a bit difficult, because depressed-brain is still a bit prone to saying "NONE LOL" and predicting that my health issues will kill me in a few years so what's the point. So some days even looking at the future without cringing away in fear is really hard, and most days, let's be honest, I don't really bother.

Money stuff is going a bit better since I got new budgeting software about six months ago. It's really making it much eaiser to plan ahead and figure out what I need to do with my money. It also helps that I'm earning some. Not a huge amount yet, but more than I was on JSA.

I'm RPing a lot, and thinking a lot about my characters without actually doing much writing on the novel or anything else (despite mostly making it to writing dates each week). The problem is there's so much I want to make a priority, and having limited energy and limited time and all the rest of it (really the energy is more of a problem than anything else), it gets really hard to prioritise and decide what I actually want to focus on.

Not sure what else to talk about. I'm keeping up with Doctor Who, though I'm really ragey at Moffat for various reasons. I'm occasionally reading fic and being a bit anxious about Yuletide nominations. I'm still not really reading printed books very much, though I'm reading a lot of articles in Pocket instead. Not sure why I'm finding books so hard but that's been ongoing for... a couple of years?

I am trying to diversify a bit socially, but coming up against the same old demons of "you've had depression for the past six years and you managed to nuke 90% of your social circle". Which makes me feel guilty about trying to renew old friendships and anxiousa about trying to start new ones. It's awesome.

I think that might be about it for now!

These are quite useful it turns out! (Cut because I would imagine mostly dull.)

Three tiny things forever )
randomling: River Song (of Doctor Who). The text "expect fireworks" is displayed. (expect fireworks)
Three tiny things. Then three more tiny things. And on we go with our day.

Three tiny things )

NB: Cutting Nine Worlds content for comfort of people who read me. If it's more comfortable to unsub while I'm talking about it, amnesty is granted - actually usub amnesty is permanet, but I'm pointing it out in this case. (Also, if asked I will happily inform individual people who ask when I am done writing about the con.)

So, Nine Worlds )

randomling: Dana Scully (The X-Files) (scully)
Instead of sitting around going "oh woe is me, I never see anyone and have no social life", I actually reached out to someone I want to hang out with.

Result: having dinner with said someone + new people on Friday night.

Outcome: victory over my brain! Take that, depression!
