Cool stuff!

  • So not having any focus tends to bring me down a lot and I get lazy
  • I didn’t know what I wanted be dissertation subject to be, I didn’t have anything planned, I felt no compulsion at all to do anything productive. It’s okay right we all have phases like that
  • We all have phases like that
  • Yesterday, my friend rang me to announce she’s taking me hiking in Wales next week for four days
  • This new fella who seems to be having some effect on me has announced he’s coming to England two weeks early which means he will be here in two weeks, like damn, I need to get my butt into gear
  • And to top it all off, I was talking to Dad last night and he has made me realise my dissertation focus (women in advertising from the Suffragettes through the 20th century including wars/feminist movement blah blah blah)
  • So I woke up this morning and felt compelled to run. I’ve decided that although my physical fitness is good enough to do a half an hour run non-stop, my shins are still fragile and I need to ease in, so I’ve started with the Couch to 5k from Week 3, but just, I keep on running for as long as I feel like, y’know. I then came back and went in my back garden on the lawn and yoga’d out for half an hour
  • I feel totally grounded and it actually made me feel pretty great so I put on a nice bra and bought a new armband for my iPhone
  • Rock on
  • I also need a new book to read? An Abundance of Katherines? Crack into Games of Thrones finally? Reread Le Guin’s stuff bc she’s amazing? I don’t know whaT TO DO
