Weekly review: Week ending August 14, 2015

My birthday was last week. I had fun reviewing the past year. So much has happened, and I’ve learned a lot: new skills, deeper interests, and so on. Yay!

I’ve been dealing with a lot of bleahs. W- has taken over cooking and has been wonderfully supportive. With any luck, I should be out of this phase soon.

Still have a hard time with focused thinking, but fortunately, the programming I do for my consulting clients isn’t blocked like that. When I find it difficult to write, I fill my mind with reading instead. I’ve been going through a lot of nonfiction books and science fiction novels from the library, and I’ve started picking up Latin again.

I’ve been playing around with doodling a bit more. It’s fun sketching a few random curves and seeing where my imagination goes, or gradually shaping a drawing into something that resonates with me.

W- and I finished True Vault Hunter Mode (TVHM) in Borderlands 2, hooray! Now we’re going through side missions and occasionally farming loot. I often join him for a few hours of gaming in the evening. Good for in-jokes and shared experiences.

Next week: small steps…
