Bits and bobs

1. I went to Denmark for the day yesterday. Nice trip - perhaps the nicest Denmark-daytrip in a while. The past few such trips have been so exhausting, and I've practically felt like I needed extra sleep for a week afterwards, but yesterday it was quite okay. I wasn't even that tired during the day, except for being tired early in the morning - which I usually am, so that's normal enough.

2. I have a new handbag! It's quite small, but still with two main compartments, plus two small pockets. It also has a clip-on shoulder strap. This is one of my main requirements for a handbag, because it means that I can also wear it around my waist, as it will clip easily on and off as needed.. My plan is to use this as my main everyday handbag - as in, that thing I need for carrying money, keys, phone and perhaps some other small items when I go out to do random stuff. I have a couple of bigger handbags that I also like, but they're less practical for everyday use, really.

3. My desk needs tidying. I have all sorts of papers and magazines and random junk lying about right now, but I'm not sure I feel like sorting through it all today. Might have to, though. Soon.

4. There are lots of news and pics about Johannes, even though it's summer and he's been missing a couple of training camps due to illness. I want to make a picspam/fanpost about everything, though, so I won't ramble that much here. I don't know when I can do that, though - it feels like I'm online much less than I would prefer these days. I don't always know why that happens, though.

5. Also, related to the point above: Ola Klæbo liked a couple of my comments on IG, and even replied to me once, a few days ago! I'm probably more excited about this than I should be. It's just very nice and cool, okay?

6. I started a large-ish project to sort through all my digital photos. Back in the old iPhoto days, I had some kind of system where I would sort photos by event/category every time I imported new ones, but when iPhoto became Photos, I sort of hated it and therefore fell out of the habit of keeping things organized. Time to make a proper try now. Also, I used to save only own photos in this/these apps, but with the amount of screencaps and pic saves I make from the mobile phone nowadays, I guess it makes sense to make some categories for these as well.

7. Yes, I caved in: There is now a "personal:fangirling" tag. Next project: add old posts that belong there to it. I have a feeling that it's going to be a huge job.

I have a feeling that there were more things on my mind when I started writing this post, but it has escaped me by now. Therefore, I'll stop here. Have a nice evening, okay?

Denmark trip

I went to Denmark for the day yesterday. The trip was mostly nice, and I also managed to buy a bag/backpack (well, it has straps for carrying on your back, at least) for the Portugal trip. Now I just need to see that I can fit everything I need in there, but I think that should be okay.

Today has been significantly less nice, though. I woke up hurting absolutely all over - headache, nausea, cramps, dizziness, you name it... It feels like I spent most of today either sleeping or moaning about being in too much pain to even do anything useful. Even trying to eat has been difficult, and I only managed to eat properly after sleeping for another hour just half an hour ago or so.

Right now I feel a bit better. I'm still tired, but not hurting or feeling like I'm about to throw up anymore. I guess I will still go to bed very early tonight, though. (Perhaps there is still something not quite right if I'm sitting by the computer at 6:30pm thinking of "going to bed early"?)

On a nicer note: I rediscovered some old writings on my Google Docs account - including some half-written fics that I had more or less forgotten about. I don't think these are fics I'm going to finish anymore, but it's still interesting to see them again.

I hate stress and lack of time so much.

Today I had almost no online time, and I have a thousand things to do here. I have a fic to finish - and it's missing a minimal amount of text before it's done, so I really want to work on it - and I also have some icons I'd like to make and some other things I'd like to write.

Half an hour of online time in the morning, and another twenty minutes now feels almost like mockery, because neither block of time is enough to truly "get into" any of the things I'd like to do.

Yes, I know I'm a computer/internet addict, and that I might have the wrong priorities sometimes, but this is still important to me, so... yes, I get annoyed if I don't have enough time here.

On a more positive note - I have a Passion Planner now, and it's absolutely gorgeous!

A few notes

* I've realised that I've been going over a year without writing any fic at all. The last fic I wrote is from December of 2015, and that was a birthday fic. The last one I wrote based on my own ideas (as in, not a request/prompt/gift/otherwise tailor-made to someone or something outside of my own mind) is from September of 2015. Thanks to a conversation with [personal profile] gobtastic, I suddenly want to write again. I even have a couple of ideas, but shaping them into something decent might still take quite a bit of time. At least the desire to write is back, which is a good thing, I guess.

* I've been playing Aardwolf again for a few days. It's such a great MUD. Somehow I tend to go through phases of playing it or not playing it, though. How about, you know, playing consistently a little bit regularly, not for hours on end, then not at all for weeks?

* I haven't mentioned it here yet, but I ordered a Passion Planner, and I can't wait for it to arrive. I'm so excited about this! Maybe I need to calm down with the planner mania and using too many of those things/always switching between different ones, but I just couldn't resist. This one seems so beautiful.

* Finally, you might know that driving is... let's just say it's not something I like to do. Even though I've had my driving license for years, I hate driving and avoid it to the best of my ability. I wish I could get over that feeling, though... and the only way to do it is probably to drive more? So, I'm trying... and I went driving around town for a bit today. Gah, I hate streets with cars parked on both sides, narrow spaces where the roadworks are, too many cars around me... and just generally the feeling of being the person in the driving seat. I wish I could just magically feel at least reasonably confident doing this, but... nah, not likely.
