My ridiculously awesome (straight) housemate and his new girlfriend came out with us and got on so well with my friends.
I loved the people and world I was surrounded by.
Today has been gloomier. I spent the entire day just trying to turn off the computer. That was my goal for the day, to get enough jobs done (that all seem to need the computer) that I was able to get turn it off. I didn't really manage it. Then I just got think it and it turns into this massive "I don't really like my life right now... I'm not enjoying my degree... I'm not enjoying a lot of the things I spend oodles of my time on...". I hate being this busy. Busy is not my default. Busy is not how I thrive. Tomorrow will be better.
Ciara posted her top 5 things she won't miss now that she no longer runs Paper Trail distro on her blog. It was an interesting read, and one that I couldn't really relate to (partly because I don't get some of those annoyances and partly because I still genuinely love the dull/tedious stuff about running a distro). It got me thinking though that perhaps I need to be a little more selective with zines that I agree to stock. I take maybe 90% I receive for considerations. That's high. Admittedly I do try to filter by email before people send them to me... but I do often find myself stocking zines I don't LOVE. That's not really doing me any favours. I need to be more assertive and just say "not this time" more often.
