... is a new job, to reduce my stress and my drive. I'm not asking for more money or power or anything. Just somewhere that someone appreciates that I'm there doing my best every day. Somewhere I'm not afraid that every person who comes near me Is going to attack my position, or the cost of my position.
Somewhere that I'm treated like a person, not just a statistic on a piece of paper.
That's not asking too much is it?

I'm afraid for my sanity. Seriously.

In other words NaNoWriMo has begun.
So far, I'm making a valiant effort. Without a real plan in mind I have managed to almost make my word count yesterday, and write enough bonus words today to balance it out so that I'm actually on track. Be it on an entirely different plan of attack than Saturday. *Sigh* This is what I get for not being a planner. I like to write by the seat of my pants. And honestly, starting on Saturday, I thought I had an idea, and then it just didn't really work for me. So I started again. And I'm not sure that's really anything either, but there might be a niggling of an idea in there somewhere that might actually allow me to write nearly 2,000 words a day for the next month.
I'm determined to win again. Hopefully that counts for something. I'll let you know in December.

I have decided that I need a way to look after myself; my brain, my spirit, my self. So I have started learning to meditate. There's a great book that I found for beginners, that teaches you to meditate 8 minutes a day. I started on Sunday, so I'm not sure how well I'm doing but the book stresses that it's the practice of meditation, so just doing it is accomplishing something.
Anyway, it's new, and maybe I can learn to be more calm, centered, and maybe more myself than I've been most recently.

The jist of that statement is that Nick Carter and Jordan Knight are touring together, and I saw them last night. It was exceptionally fun. They both seemed to be enjoying themselves, and the crowd was actually really good, despite it's general admission-ness. Ran into an old friend, which was nice, and went with my oldest friend so all in all it was a super night.

I feel like I'm drowning. Every time I think I may be able to take a deep breath, fill my lungs, something drags me back under. I don't know what to do.
There are supportive hands and voices out there, but the most heard thing is "What are you going to do to change it?" If I knew that, wouldn't I already be doing it?
And so I continue to tread water, with as much strength as I can, waiting for the tide to change, to give me a chance to save myself. I cam only rely on that.
I don't really have an opinion on whether or not "Better Together" is right, but I can understand how a country can be upset at their representation in government when they are an actual separate country, but not have their own government or even equal representation.

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a big reader, but I'm having a lot of trouble with this concept. Not that anyone nominated me for the challenge, but it got me thinking anyway. The problem may be that I read too much, and I generally find something worth taking out of everything I read. Not necessarily on purpose, but some piece of something always sticks.

For most people, it's not really the start of anything new. It's not a new year, unless you're a kid going back for the start of a new school year.
I'm taking the opportunity, though I'm not really starting a new year - to call New Year. It's a fresh start. I'm going to start eating better, begin a new exercise habit, and try to keep a neater house. I didn't get everything accomplished yesterday that I wanted to start this way, but maybe it's part of the process to get myself to that place. I need to re-organize a few things, and get rid of some junk food that it's the house, but I'm starting with a different mind-set and that's important.
I don't have explicit goals to put down here - I just want to improve. I want to make myself better, which in turn might make my life better. Control what I can in a way, since I have no control over certain other aspects of my life. If I make myself feel more in control of what I can control, I'll probably be happier. And maybe I'll feel less like I have no direction.

Overall, definitely pleased with the book to movie transition on this one.

Hopefully I can keep myself motivated to actually go to these classes, and keep the intimidation factor as low as possible.
