Working from home.
My client had to cancel again today. Checking with my boss to see if maybe video sessions would be beneficial for her Instead of meeting in person.
Ive been watching lectures this morning, and lightly cleaning/organizing the house. My friends want to have a Halloween party, i might offer to have it here and host.
Later im going to a birthday party, then just one more day til the weekend
bibliothèque for 2day! such a lovely one- it was between this and accord oud back when i was deciding which byredo full size id get... (i got accord oud! it's one of my top three perfumes ever🖤)
I have no interest in outer space. I couldn’t begin to explain a lightyear. today, I read saturn’s rings are disappearing and couldn’t hold the tears back. every year, another layer of banded dust thins under the sun’s hot breath. even in my ambivalence, even though the planet’s shape is unlikely to change much in the years I’ll live to watch it—however slow nature’s exit, I’ll still ask for one more kiss goodbye.
Today was a weird day, and I am writing this in the evening which is something I almost never do. This morning I was super productive, I worked so much, and I managed to complete all the tasks I had planned for the day (and actually this week I went beyond my weekly goals, so that's really good). Since I was kinda tired, and had a headache and backpain thanks to sitting in front of my laptop for so much lately I decided to take the afternoon off. I will work a bit tomorrow morning but this afternoon I decided to detox from all digital things, I put on an audiobook and worked on my crochet carding, which is slowly coming together. I finished all the small squares that will make it up and I started attaching them together. I don't care if it will turn out a little messy in the end, but I am so happy I am finally making something for me to wear all by my self. It's something I always wished I could do but I never thought I would ever be capable of. We'll wee how it will turn out.
Productive things I did today:
fixed the bibliography of my thesis according to the indications the professor gave me
added a small section in the first chapter of my thesis
reread and did some final edits in the second and third chapters of the thesis
sent all of this stuff to the professor
started putting together the title page of the thesis
planned the next couple of things I'll need to do for finishing this thesis
did a little drawing for inktober (I am not sure I'll manage to keep up with it but I decided to try and make is as low effort as possible, by doing a small doodle on my bullet journal for each day, I really hope I'll keep it up because drawing has always been a big part of my life and in these past years I've had a huge block with it, and I really miss this hobby and how good it made me feel)
practiced Irish on duolingo
almost finished the audiobook of The Green Mile by Stephen King
Finished the crochet squares I need to make my cardigan and begun attaching them (I have put together the two sleeve panels and one of the front panels)
Self care things I did today:
read first thing in the morning
took the afternoon off although I hadn't originally planned it, but I definitely needed it both mentally and physically
spent the afternoon listening to the audiobook while crocheting and drinking tea (basically how I hope to spend the witer months, it was perfect)
Away from home for a while with only 4 fountain pens to keep me company, and I already see my ink levels dropping lower, and lower, and lower, and lower… 😭
I have $178 to my name, but I won't have access to it, till Monday because of bank holds!! Can I have some money so I can eat this weekend...I haven't eaten in 27 hours at this point 😞🤘
