And now 8th June is a general election, and I have no time to campaign, and have to fight the guilt gremlins that think I should surely be able to carve some time out magically, somehow, and funnily enough being even more stressed does not increase my productivity, or help me sleep. This has not been the best week!
I've now logged out of Twitter and Facebook on my phone, so I can't take the stress with me everywhere. I've devoted the weekend to resting and sorting out money (thus removing some other stress). I'm behind on everything, but Facebook reminded me that I wrote this time last year about being behind on everything. While I'm still perpetually running too close to my limits, those limits have expanded in the last year. I'm routinely working a 5-day rather than a 4-day week, I'm studying at a higher level, and my fitness has improved a little.
So I'm going to trust that if I take care of myself, I can get through this. At least by 9th June some of my stressors are guaranteed to be gone.
Danese Cooper swung through London as she periodically does, so we met for breakfast at Gail's and I got a pancake. Grumbles about how people are a problem, bragging about children and (step-)grandchildren.
Still trudging through the book-shaped albatross. Looked at the site on Danese's phone and went "FUCK," it looks like a web page for ants. So I'll be installing a WordPress on that today then. Yet again doing the thing I tell everyone else not to, i.e. self-hosting WordPress. Bah.
The cover is the big blocker right now. I know what I want now, big block "business book" lettering and a coupla Sergio Aragones style silhouettes. Main blocker is my complete lack of artistic talent.
Also, I posted a rough draft of the Bitfinex section to Reddit /r/buttcoin and ... Mark Karpelès of Mt. Gox bought me Reddit Gold. :-O
