I now have so much on, I can't decide if it's more stressful to be in continual motion or to take some time out knowing that I'm inevitably falling behind.

The projects and missed deadlines are piling up. But last night, instead of sleeping or exercising or doing laundry, or actually addressing some of the things I have to do, I went out to my flatmate's birthday karaoke, got drunker than I have in years (thanks Lynn, for the killer third 600ml of sake) and wound up with a hangover for most of today. This only served to exacerbate menstrual symptoms measuring an astounding 7.2 on my personal richter scale.

Suxville. Really.

Some of you have managed to provide much appreciated responses to my insomnia (solved for the most part by sleeping separately from the BF), so if any of you have any tips for keeping on top of myriad projects and a job while holding onto one's sanity and personal relationships, now is the time to divulge.

And yeah - avoiding blind-drunk karaoke is already on the list.

Time poor is the term Lyn. You're impoverished. It's a sign that you're not in control of your life. Reel it in sister! Get that control back. Stop being a victim of your bullying schedule .. stop unconsciously seeking out stress .. it's probably a way of avoiding yourself, you know. And you're lovely company, so learn to enjoy it like the rest of us. Learn to take it easy. Maybe that can be your project for this Summer?
