Just in case some people were wondering if I was still around on the interwebs.
Short answer is yes, I’ve been playing about on Twitter with a lot of stalking on Facebook.
Longer answer is that I’ve been battling fatigue, massive anxiety (hello hormones I have not missed you what the hell), and general burnout.
The good thing about my current job is that the mention of burnout and fatigue didn’t result in my team leads making me feel like I’m a useless drain on company resources. It actually resulted in a fruitful conversation with actual action taken to minimise the effects. I can still contribute. In fact, the stuff that I absorbed while I was on the road to burning out is actually being redirected into other media and forms of expression. So I’m not writing super long form or detailed articles that require hours of research now; I’m regurgitating what I know into video scripts, website improvements and helping my new colleagues wrap their heads around our services (total waste management in Australia).
My hair is officially past my shoulders. I’m hoping that when June comes, I can lop it all off in a glorious ponytail. The ponytail is going to Locks of Hope to be turned into wigs for cancer patients. June is also my birthday month, and I may do another round of donation requests for The Seed Foundation.
The first quarter of the year is almost over. Hello Spring, it is nice to see you. Winter I think drives my itchy butt. I feel the need/desire for new pastures. Once I’m passed it, I tend to be… ok? In any case, I’m looking forward to April. My bond with my current company ends then. No, I’m not thinking of leaving but I don’t like having the bond over my head. This is a reminder to myself not to do this again next time.
So how was the first three months of 2018 for you?
