- Dragged myself out of vicious post-show-low
Yes, after 7 years clean I fell back into student drama this term. It's a long story, and for better or worse it's done now. But for a little Weill I was in the Threepenny Opera, and got to sing and shout about how shitty capitalism is with a group of earnest teenagers. Not such a bad way to spend a term, actually.
- Started brainstorming alternative dissertation projects
Another long story: my mentor died last month, I have to give a presentation on Wednesday, and I've been avoiding it because grief and did I mention I had a show to do?
- Booked my first driving lesson in 14 years
I had to stop learning before because Massive Anxiety, but now future career options are starting to depend on learning.. not to mention the fact that I'm a drummer and a powerlifter and neither hobby is really amenable to public transportation!
- Planned & booked a combination conference-and-weekend-away
Because £20 for a full-day conference on the self & reflective practice in clinical psychology is a) a steal and b) exactly what I need. And following it up with a chance to bimble around Bristol for a couple of days is exactly what I want, and that's important too.
- Asked for help with a difficult letter I've been putting off writing for months
I know I've not been the greatest at posting to the Mx Chronicles recently, but I found a bank which will record my title as 'Mx' and my gender as non-binary! Which rather gives a lie to my previous bank's claims that I had to be recorded as 'Ms' and 'F' because fraud or HMRC requirements or something.
- Did not leave the house all day
For the first time in 2017. I had a bath and then got straight back into pyjamas. Blissful.
