Calmer – The Climb #360

Tuesday 16th January 2018 I’m definitely feeling a lot better today.  I’ve been feeling a lot calmer and my anxiety has died down a lot. It’s left me feeling exhausted.  Having felt like I’ve drunk too many energy drinks the last few days, I now feel like I want to sleep.  Given that I’ve not [...]

Blue Monday – The Climb #359

Monday 15th January 2018 Today is supposed to be Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year.  For me, that’s certainly partly true as my anxiety has been spiking all over the place.  It’s been caused by a number of things and has just seemed to have come to a head. However, I took [...]

Dealing With Negative People – The Climb #354

Wednesday 10th January 2018 I went into the office today.  For my day job I work from home a lot but I do sometimes go into the office. I tend to keep my private life and work life very separate.  I don’t really talk about the day job here, and I don’t talk much about [...]

A Day Of Unexpected Editing – The Climb #353

Tuesday 9th January 2018 I’ve been feeling pretty invisible today.  I’m waiting on an email and a friend who’s currently without a mobile and said there was a 50/50 chance they’d come round, didn’t.  I’ve also been monitoring how much stress the day job gives me, and have watched my levels rise in the last [...]

The Dresden Reread – The Climb #349

Friday 5th January 2018 One of the things I really wasn’t happy about last year was how little I read.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to read – I bought a ton of books.  I just never found the time in between edits and tournaments to really sit down days in succession and read. [...]

Getting Organised for 2018 – The Climb #347

Wednesday 3rd January 2018 My main aim for this week is to get my ToDo list up to date. I have been a long time user of ToDoist and have processes for tracking and progressing tasks.  It’s pretty effective and has allowed me to be super-productive in recent years.  I don’t just use it for [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]

The Danger Of Doing What Is Expected – The Climb #343

Saturday 30th December 2017 I didn’t feel too bad this morning considering how much I’d had to drink at the party, but I was glad when some of the others who’d stayed over decided that we’d go to a greasy spoon.  I’m not sure whether it was just the hangover, but I think that was [...]

Friday 22nd December 2017 And suddenly, it was Xmas. It seems like Christmas has just suddenly arrived.  I've been busy doing loads of things and telling myself that I really need to do a few things for xmas, only to suddenly find I've run out of time.  It seemed like only yesterday that it was [...]

Burn Out – The Climb #332

Tuesday 19th December 2017 I’ve started feeling a bit better the last couple of days.  Sunday’s low day just made me realise just how run down I was. Looking back I can see just how swamped with tasks I’ve been since the end of August.  I found myself getting stressed out in September when it [...]
