I’m baaaack! For real this time! There have been…a number of developments, over the past month or so.
The main one is that I dropped out of uni. Yes, really. I realised that I don’t think the career I was working toward was going to make me happy. And as it stands, I don’t think any career is going to make me truly happy. What’s wrong with just being satisfied with where you are in life? I work to live, not the other way around; and my current job is just fine…most of the time.
I actually started this post over a week ago, and can’t even remember what I was going to write. Oops! My reading mojo still hasn’t kicked back in, but I’m reading sporadically. I’ve even managed to finish a couple of books, woo! 😆
One thing I’ve been following within the community is the whole cockygate thing. What a mess! If you’ve not heard about it, here is a post by Tymber Dalton that is a general summary (with links to further information), and the vibe of it reflects my reaction. Just. WTF?! One good thing to come out of it is that I’ve discovered more authors to support (and a few to avoid).
I managed to hurt my back a couple of months ago (I’m turning into an old lady!) I was bending over to pick up a t-shirt to hang on the clothesline and when I straightened up my back was all ‘lol HI LET ME GIVE YOU PAIN FOR NO REASON!’ My physio said my muscles were stuck ‘on’ and it’s not quite 100% better but I’m almost there. Between this and the time I pulled a quad muscle when going to kneel on the floor, I do wonder if my body is just falling apart!
Oh. I got a new tattoo! My first in over 10 years (and my 7th overall). I’m too lazy to resize and embed a photo, but here’s an instagram link, just after it was done so it looks a bit swollen. It’s all healed now, and as it turns out – it’s hard to take photos of your own upper arm.
As for blog related stuff. I’ve changed hosts to Flywheel. It took me a while, but I realised I like managed wordpress a lot more than doing it all myself; but I also like having the freedom to add my own plugins and stuff. It’s much easier to manage my site (and harder for me to break things haha). They made it really easy for me to transfer to https too, I did have a couple of hiccoughs; but I could figure them out this time. Sorry, I sound like an advertisement. I’m not, I just like them a lot!
And that’s me done. I’m going to go catch up on some blogs!
Edit: Crap. The previous provider of my blog post emails sent this one out. I’m so sorry guys. That contact list is being deleted right now! I thought I’d disabled it, apparently not 🙁 ugh.
