I'm here, hunched over my books, so tired of studying that I don't know what to do. Even though it feels to me like I'm hiding my complete stressed-out-madness from the world, I have been told that this is not the case. So now I'll be hiding from the world until Tuesday. Wish me luck flist. I really need it!

There is a lot of good stuff happening in my life right now. So much, in fact, that I can't seem to have enough time to savor it. I'm really happy that I took a year off from studies because I love my job, my boss, my patients, my free treatments and the KunTao that I train in the back of the clinic. At the same time, that leaves little room for anything else in my life right now. I get there before 9 in the morning, and usually don't leave until after eight. So much for my relaxing year off, right? But at least I'm getting healthy.

I missed two birthday parties I really wanted to go to because I was so busy moving I forgot to check which week it was. This should tell you something about how much is going on. On the plus side, this resulted in me fully moving out of Sinsenterrassen (I washed my room on Sunday and when I turned off the light and closed the door I almost cried), but it still means that I didn't get to hang out with a bunch of people I really wanted to meet again. I'll miss casa Hasle-Svanevik with everything it entails of parties and quiet evenings with tv-shows, but I'm very happy that I'm here in my new apartment. It's kinda scary to be sharing a room with someone though. Then again, the boyfriend manages to sit quietly next to me while I blog without interfering or talking too much (*hearts him*).

I went to work today. In hindsight it might have been a bad idea since I'm still feverish and I probably infected everyone at the office, but it was really nice. [livejournal.com profile] sjokoladepiken was there too and we smuggled coffee into the back room and drank it in the slow moments(my boss has a crazy idea that the smell of coffee might give patients headaches or something). I ended up staying too long though, and when I got home at 3.30 I was completely beat. And I'm still beat. My head is splitting and I just got out of bed. I'm wearing pajamas and trying to muster the energy to get my stuff out of the basement so I can pack for this larp I'm going to tomorrow morning while watching tv and trying to help [livejournal.com profile] sjokoladepiken fix today's till. So far I've been on the phone with her for 22 minutes and we still haven't figured out why the stupid system doesn't want to let us change the tiny tiny little fucking mistake that we pinpointed. Gah! So annoying.

I think I'm going to make dinner before I start packing. Pancakes with soy milk. It could be a good idea, right? (hoping desperately that pancakes without milk will be good) Only 12 hours to go before the larp...

I'm getting a cold. Or, to be more precise, I've been getting a cold for more than a week now. I'm fighting it in the old-fashioned way of the Svanevikian clan; by ignoring it and going to work of course. And it's been working out pretty good. I'm dead tired, my throat is sore and I have headaches and dizzy spells all the time, but I'm not completely dead yet. But I'm not completely recovered either, and now, there's only a few days left before the larp I've been looking forward to for ages and I really don't wanna be sick while I'm there.

So what should I do?

I'm a strong believer in the helpfulness of working in stressful working environments so I'm going to continue doing that, but I need more good tips. Right now, the only thing my body seems to be telling me is that I would get massively better if I eat an enormous amount of chocolate and wasabi peas. I kid you not, I have an intense craving for dark chocolate and wasabi coated green peas. Preferably together. And I cannot shake it. Should I listen to my body? Is it telling me the truth, or is this some sort of sick joke where I eat everything it tells me to and I still get sick? It seems like something my body would do... Do you guys have other good tips on how to shake a cold that does not include resting ('cause I really don't have time for that guys)?

*fingers crossed*

This is it.

I've done everything I could possibly justify doing instead of writing my project-thingie and now I'm here: 4 hours to finish it and not a single coherent thought running through my brain except "I want a cigarette". Goddamnit!

Someone help me? Either get me a plane ticket away from this city to some exciting new place, give me something to help me focus (except cigarettes, I'm not giving up quitting just yet) or just come entertain me. I either need to get this done by some magical mystical power of focus, or I need someone to distract me. Who wants to be my distraction?

You know the saying "drowning in work"? Well, I wouldn't say that my head is completely below water yet, but I'm up to my nose in it. And though I like to say that I'm a person who loves stress and having lots to do, this is a little too much for me, sad to say.

I'm just telling you guys this in case I completely stop answering phone calls the next few weeks. It's not 'cause I don't love you, I'm just swamped.

I'm losing my concentration, and realizing at the same time that I read too slowly. I need to start skimming the newspapers, but so far, I haven't been able to. This means that I'm both unfocused and behind schedule, which is a bad situation. On the other hand, I had a 2 hours lunch break so I should be good to go now. Here's to hoping!

(Comments would be nice though, I mean, here I am, alone in a quiet room filled with stranger, constantly pressing F5 in the hope that someone will say something to me, and nobody does. It makes a girl sad...)

Also, I wish newspapers today had these headlines: "I denne skjebnesvangre tid er solidaritet og samhold en bydende plikt for arbeiderklassen" (In these dark times solidarity and togetherness must be a duty for the entire working class). Doesn't it make you all warm inside?

I'm going insane here. I was supposed to get my ass down to the National Library today to get some actual paid work done, but instead I decided to stay home and do other stuff. Again. How do I motivate myself to actually get started on my work? I'm a week behind already.

Also, I'm panicking due to the fact that I called the first meeting of the Knutepunkt 09 committee, and nobody can actually show. I know it's probably just a coincidence, but it feels like making this conference is suddenly up to me, and I can't actually do it. Not while working 200%, making a larp and doing other stuff. It's just not going to happen. I don't think this is a problem my amazing list making skillz can help me with, so I'm asking you guys. How do I get out of this arrangement?
