Life update.


Mental health has been deteriorating the past week or so. Have been on the verge of tears a few times today, for no apparent reason.

I sleep a lot, can't get up in the morning, and I'm struggling to do more than maintenance-level housework. Not to mention all the work that I need to do outdoors.

Have also been playing SMAC a lot lately. Cuts into my productivity, I'm sure. I'm playing on Transcend level now, and it's a bit tough - I'm the third strongest faction in this game. Abusing chronomancy to some degree. Holding my own, but not really progressing in my wars. Roze is about to overtake me in tech progress. She has way more bases than I do, and both The Theory of Everything and The Supercollider. Yeah, well I have the Cloudbase Academy, the Cyborg Factory, Virtual World and Telepathic Matrix.

I went a while without doing any knitting, but at last I cast on the ironwork socks and moved into the initially confusing charts and it's all working out, but it's a lot of work. I'd really prefer a more mindless knit right now, so I cast on another pair of Jaywalkers, which will hopefully turn into a giftmas present.

Mom is here for her autumn vacation. It's great to be able to spend some time with her. Yesterday we went to Brekke. It was fun.

Today, I only left the house once, to check my mail. Got up around 3:30 PM. -_-

Looks like the Wii price drop has finally hit Norway too. I'm buying one now, even if the only TV available to me is horrible. I haven't turned it on for months now. If it's still as bad as I remember it, I might just bring my Wii down to the farm and play on my grandparents' TV.

    Today wasn't bad. I got up at noon, not bad considering I laid awake until around three or four last night. I haven't really made much progress…

  • Another low content day.

    Again, did not go out of the house today. Stayed up far too late last night, and laid awake until five or six in the morning, and consequently…

  • woe.

    Another passive day. Still haven't received the letter. It's quite cold at night now, and I guess gastropod season is over.. I didn't get any…
