Let the sunshine in

Taking care of myself. Easing into this day and this week. Giving myself more time to sleep: I got to bed earlier last night and had the alarm set for 6:00, later than I used to set it. (I woke up on my own at 5:40.) Breathing. Thinking. Opening the shades, because Portland has cloud breaks this morning.

I can use some sun.

I'm working on how I'll tackle the job hunt. I indeed got my hair cut yesterday. (Somehow my head seems bigger when my hair is shorter.)

Not Mel-Gibson-as-Riggs amounts of it, but a lot of it. And someday there will again be a lot of it, but for now it's worth being more clean-cut.

More cleaning will also happen; my apartment needs it. My former employer's "official driver" card and "this employee better not be on drugs" card are now in the trash. Other stuff will get thrown away. Always needing less stuff around me.

I'm still borrowing books; it's easier to dip into those and avoid being completely wrapped up in them.

As I've been saying, I'm still here. (As if I need to remind myself? Maybe, but that doesn't hurt.) And as I've said in the past, what's next is what's next. Heck, when I started this blog, I was looking for work. I've handled this before...

  • Trying to end blog constipation! Also, feelings, ugh.

    Yeah. That was a week of me not blogging. Whatever blogging I might have done during that time would probably have been really repetitive. I haven't…

  • I can do stuff while feeling low

    After posting the earlier entry, I did a walk. And an errand. A combination walk-errand. I needed to return a library book, Beverly Cleary's…

  • Some days are low days.

    I've been sad today. It has been easy to think of sad things, and I've been thinking of them while not doing much else. Trying to think of happy…
