Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I was honoured to receive a Kuchee Award for a brilliant mind! And even better: ““Kuched Is Donating $25 Per Winner To The Daily Bread Food Bank To Start My Klove 2020 Fundraising Campaign.” Thank you Michael, both for the award and for the awesome donation!
- Thanks so much to Maja of Lampelina and Mark of Overcoming OCD for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award! I greatly appreciate it!
- Christmas Eve and Christmas were hard – especially Christmas, as I woke up ridiculously early and it made for a very long day. Oh well, at least they’re over and done with now.
- My guinea pig Cookie has been up and down with her health this week.
- I made a decision to be vulnerable in a situation and it bit me in the ass.
- I’ve gotten more writing done this week than in the last few weeks, so that’s been good.
- I don’t spend that much time on social media in general, but I’m feeling particularly unmotivated lately. Except Pinterest; it’s always a pleasant distraction.
- Only a few days left to go in my 2019 bullet journal and then it’ll be time to switch over to the new 2020 journal, which is kind of fun.
- I did a guest post on Renard’s World about the dark side of psychiatry in the 20th century. He added me as a contributor to his blog, which meant I was getting notifications from WordPress as if I was a new blogger, e.g. displaying a badge that I’d received 5 likes, and had my most likes ever in one day. I started blogging two years ago but I still remember very clearly how exciting it was to get those first few likes, so it was a fun reminder. It was also quite interesting researching background info for that post and an upcoming related post. Supposedly we mentally ill folk are crazy, but the “treatment” we’ve received over the past several centuries has been far, far crazier.
How has your week been?
