So, the last half month has been super hectic and stressful, particularly in terms of work. I was in a flunk for a while, which always results in me being withdrawn online and offline for the most part. I’m happy to report things have gotten better though. I finally got through a pile of difficult work that was sitting on my desk for a while, thanks to finally getting some written instructions at work. Recap, we’re all still adjusting to our new library system with ExLibris Alma which has been....an adventure to say the very least in a positive way.

So yeah, now that work is bearable...dare I say even enjoyable... life has improved. We’re all in the swing of Christmas spirit both at work and at home. John and I didn’t bother with a full size tree since a) no space and b) we’re both going to our own families for Christmas but we did put up a Charlie Brown Christmas tree and we made a wreath for our door:


Anyway, sorry for not being around much the last two weeks. Hoping that now that work is better I’ll be able to be on more and catch up. If I’ve missed anything major I do apologize for not commenting. It’s not for lack of caring, it’s just that I’ve been caught up in my own flunk the last little while. I do think about my friends list and I’m hoping you’re all well.
thenerdygirl: (What would Dorothy do?)
Writing about feeling down yesterday was pretty helpful and I think acknowledging it in a semi-public manner was the kick in the pants I needed. Why is it always easier to write here how I’m feeling then it is to tell people in my day-to-day life? I suspect it has to do with the fact that my friendslist shares so much that it makes me feel more comfortable doing so. That and I feel like there’s less expectations, if that makes any sense. Anyway, last night I made a point of trying to get back into writing in my paper journal (yep, I keep both an online & offline one) which always helps me figure out what’s wrong and what I need...when I keep up with writing in it.

One problem I noticed was my increased smart phone usage the last few months. I’ve developed a bit of a bad habit of mindlessly scrolling through my phone, especially before bed and when I get up. The new plan is to replace that with more paper journal writing and reading, which will hopefully help me feel more productive. There will be a bunch of other small changes too but I won’t bore you with the details....especially since I want to share these images instead:




These origami pieces are part of Cristian Marianciuc Origami journal series which I first saw on mymodernmet.com. I love this series! I’m nowhere near as good as this artist but it has me itching to break out my origami papers again.
