Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I’m no longer doing blog award posts, but I wanted to say a big thank you to Gwen at Beauty of imperfection: the kintsukuroi life. Check out her post for her great list of wisdoms to live by.
- Mama woodpecker stopped by one morning to briefly peck at my bbq. This was the first woodpecker sighting in a while.
- It’s been a week of doing not much of anything at all, which was a good thing.
- The weird thoughts have stopped, which is nice. The intrusive thoughts about killing the guinea pigs were particularly disturbing, and it’s nice to be able to cuddle with them again. This week I’ve been quite slow both mentally and physically. Psychomotor slowing is a symptom I’ve always been very aware of when it’s happening, so it feels odd when I have to be out in public because I can tell how much slower I’m moving than everyone else. I don’t actually care what other people think, but I know when I’m like this it’s overtly apparent to others that I am impaired. If feels awkward, but oh well, par for the course.
- The Startup, a publication on Medium, contacted me wanting to include my post Do Thoughts Vibrate in their publication. Sure, why not. A while later I got a pingback from another site that had copied and pasted the post on The Startup. They didn’t credit/link to me or The Startup. The pingback was unintentional, and happened because of an internal link to my site that I’d included within the post. A little more digging and I found out that this site harvests all of The Startup’s posts without crediting them. I’ve said this before, but seriously, what is wrong with people?
- This morning I was exploring my little hometown, which I haven’t been to for years, on Google Maps street view. I was a bit surprised by how familiar it looked, although I probably shouldn’t be surprised; after all, I lived in the same house for 18 years.
How has your week been?
