Dungeons and Dragons Part 19

Posted in Culture, Friends, Me, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 31/01/2012 by arabrhizome

Not much to say about this week’s Dungeons and Dragons. It was basically an extended encounter that spilled over from last week. Basically we faced the rat ogres and it was rough, I almost died on a few occasions. Basically the rat ogres were after the Phoenix and got very confused to find two of them there. The battle was very tough, but we eventually defeated most of them except for one who escaped carrying a dying phoenix (not our mage but the phoenix from that time). We all decided that we were going to go after them in the tunnels they dug up and hope to get the phoenix back. It would be a disaster if the ogres control the phoenix. Anyway, that’s really all I can say about it. I’m not going to give you a blow by blow account, as it was an encounter that basically lasted over two sessions. As always, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.


Emotional Odyssey

My day today was very appropriately described by someone as an emotional odyssey. I don’t want to go into the details of it but let’s just say that at some point I felt like my whole world was crumbling around me. Eventually it got sorted out, which is good, but it was touch and go for a while. I am now feeling a lot better and I’m actually feeling slightly energised. Everything will hopefully get sorted out and I’ll be okay. I’m going to be spending my day tomorrow doing work and getting things done. Enough procrastination and enough close calls. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

So I’m very anxious. Work isn’t going well, my visa application is taking forever. I’m disturbed and anxious. I just want to write and get the thesis over with but I can’t seem to focus. I need to stop all the displacement activities. I’ve even thought about not writing here anymore, but then this isn’t a displacement activity as I only write for about five minutes before I go to bed. It’s not really stopping me from working. Anyway, speaking of that, I’m going to try and get some work done before I sleep. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Back to Weird Sleep

So my weird sleeping pattern is back. I’m now unable to sleep or wake up at normal hours. I need to get this fixed. Maybe I’ll just stay up all night and all day tomorrow. I’ll see how that goes. I need to do a lot of work. I’m almost done with this chapter and it would be nice to finish it tomorrow or Monday. That way I can get started on the next one. I think the next one will not take very long to finish, at least I hope so. Anyway, I must go now. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Trouble With The Internet

Posted in Uncategorized on 27/01/2012 by arabrhizome

I’m having some trouble with my Internet at the moment. So I’m writing this blog from my phone. I don’t know why but my Internet isn’t working as well as it should. The signal keeps going away and I’m not able to do basic stuff. I’m doing some work and also filling my visa extension application. It’s slightly scary as a process but it’s necessary. Will submit it this week hopefully. Anyway, that’s all from me for now. I’ll hopefully be able to blog more when my Internet is back to normal. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Feeling Better

I’m feeling a lot better. I had a few dodgy days but I’m feeling a lot better now. I spent the day doing a lot of cleaning. My flat was an absolute mess. It’s still not over. I’m doing more tomorrow, including some laundry. I’m going to be working throughout the weekend and hopefully get the chapter finished by Sunday or Monday. In other news, not much has been going on. I made myself a nice dinner of vegetable stew with some quinoa, it was delicious. I am so happy to be back on a vegan diet. I feel so much better now. Anyway, I’m off for now. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Man Period

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized with tags , , on 25/01/2012 by arabrhizome

I think I had a bit of a man period yesterday. Before you all think I’m being sexist, it is a well established fact that men, just like women, have hormonal cycles. Those cycles can lead to hormonal imbalances or shifts in hormonal production. This in turn leads to different behaviours. Yesterday, I must admit I was in an awful mood. I could feel my hormones playing with me but felt completely helpless. I was sad, angry, but also confused. I kept having mood swings. It was really bad. I just couldn’t do anything about it. Thank goodness I had a friend around to skype with who really made it easier. It’s weird also because I had mentioned this on Monday, that men do have cycles that somehow mirror the menstrual cycles of women, and then bam the next day I find myself in the situation I was describing. Anyway, I woke up today and was feeling a lot better. Although not completely normal. The light made it easier to deal with. Anyway, I must go now. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.
