1. Related, I don’t know for sure, but suspecting there is a faint chance I might get paid for the article I completed yesterday. I only thought of this yesterday when I was almost done. Would help lots.

     
  2. I want to go to New York for a week or so, with nothing at all on my schedule and a bank account that is bursting at the seams.

    I mean, Paris would do, but really craving NYC at the moment. Which reminds me, my passport expires this month… even if I won the lottery tomorrow - and I can’t remember when I last bought a ticket -, it’s not going to happen soon.

    In other news, it was payday yesterday. I think that if I meet all the deadlines and get paid for the extra stuff as promised, and nothing unexpected and expensive happens, this might be the month when I make it out of the red. Fingers crossed.

    Read boyf his horoscope from a magazine on the phone yesterday, because it was overwhelmingly positive, promising buckets of money, appreciation and success in all areas of life in October (he’s a Virgo). We must send in a complaint if it all fails to materialize.

  6. Finding it slightly worrying how happy and content I feel today. Also, although I made good progress with, idk, 12 or so hours of work yesterday (nothing makes me focus like despair, I guess), the article is not finished and I have to pull another day like that if I hope to get it done by tomorrow.

     
  7. IMPORTANT PRO TIP: forget tiny, overpriced spot treatments from skincare brands, just get a tube of Bepanthen Plus from a pharmacy.

     
  8. Working and panicking and working, gaaah.

    I am making progress, but it isn’t easy.

  10. Currently set to hand this bloody article in by Wednesday’s deadline; at the same time fully expecting the editors to roll their eyes over this superficial crap.

    Ehh. I am telling myself this is just PMS talking. Looks like another 3-weekish cycle, grrrrr. I had a nice afternoon out with boyf, visiting the Japanese garden just as the leaves are starting to turn, then catching the exhibition of a classic local painter on its last day (I knoooow, I get in for free and the museum is 10 minutes from where I live and I still cannot be bothered to go anywhere near often enough). And then gave in to the hormonal urge to go get comfort food on a credit card. OTL Not proud. And seriously, my budget cannot cope with uncontrollable ice cream cravings every third week. It does not accept substitutes either, I mean, it kind of does under false pretences, meaning I will eat all the substitutes and then STILL eat ice cream anyway.
