None – I read no non-fiction books. Instead I read academic journals for my dissertation and no poor sod wants those recapped.

February Media Round-up

I think I'm just about striking a balance between work and play - I am currently undecided about participating in 40 fandoms in case that sends everything off-kilter. Will decide at the weekend I think...

January's Media

Last year - with the pressures of university and jobs, both of which are well documented - the amount of time I dedicated to hobbies/past-times was greatly diminished. I estimate that for about 6 months I didn't read a single fiction book. For three months I did not play any video games. Since I have been engaged in both of those leisure activities since I was about two years old, this is a pretty good indicator of how stress and work/study focused I got. So - since there's no way I can keep up with my completion list for video games I decided to merge it into a general "look, here's various forms of media that I have looked at/played!". Hence the post.

I got the invitation for the AO3 account this morning so I will try to sort out the various posting issues re: 12days. I haven't really looked at it yet, more just a case of "right - for the to-do list". My day went spectacularly badly because I woke up to find that Turn-it in (our submission system for essays) had not correctly uploaded my essay for some reason (there was some e-mail later about why but to be honest the details were not that important to me at the time), so I tried and tried to submit my essay again. Had to use my TOIL and push back starting work for an hour so I could get the damn essay submitted. Then it turned out JJ had taken my house keys to work with her...cue the hunt for the spare sets of keys which couldn't possibly be in a logical place for keys.

I have been in a fairly unregulated place for the majority of Christmas as I found out just before Christmas that my contract will not be renewed - not because I'm bad or anything - but essentially because young people with disabilities are not considered a priority so all the frontline services related to SEND are not being renewed. So - no job come May. My lecturer has found a position as a Research Assistant for me to apply for working on a 2 year project about technology and how it can help people with disabilities - which sounds really good but is obviously not even close to a guarantee. I also need to get the application in by tomorrow...

I have had a very hard time balancing everything I am doing and feel like I am struggling to keep everything going. So unsurprisingly all the stress of this morning culminated in me having a quite spectacular meltdown when two police cars went past our house with the sirens going. I can tolerate sirens when I am regulated. When I'm not...it's awful. I feel very ashamed and embarassed about how such a stupid final sensory input can send me into a state of sensory overload - people seem to understand it more if you're a kid. Not so much when you're an adult.

I'm back to a state of relative self-regulation now - although it will take me a few days to be completely back to baseline - so that's a good thing at least. I also have the entertainment of JJ playing the new Binding of Isaac expansion pack and telling me about all the new things in it. There aren't many games where you would hear the phrase "This new pick-up looks like a scary demon vagina", so at least I can also rely on interesting conversation to keep me going...
