Unda pressure

Most of the way through february and it's been interesting. With less free time my stress level has gone up, and so has the amount of time that I spend procestinating. What would it take to stop this from happening? Should I just be letting the caffiene and adrenaline flow? Prpcrastination has been relationship focused, maybe finding ways to mix work and relationships when this happens.

Stress kicking in

I'm realizing that my February is almost entirely booked, and it's breaking me out of my nice relaxed cycle. I need to find a way to take things as they come and wait until March, until then I feel like I don't have much control. Maybe I just need to accept that too?

Meeting day

Cold is almost gone. Spent most of today in meetings, and wound up a little more stressed than in the past. Interesting. Maybe it's the feeling of committing to things/worrying about what I can commit to/feeling accountable? I should think about how to get energized by and balance meetings. 

Another full day of meetings tomorrow, so I'll get a chance to see.


Leisurly blogs in the morning, some bizgov work, some reading, a lot of helping people with problem sets and writing an Ops post. Got a little distracted with chatting in the night but I'm mostly ok with that. Taking it easy while I heal,, but am aware that I need to calmly pick up some pace.

Sore throat

*cough* *cough* Still, I'm strumming right along. Despite a morning yesterday wasted reading Girl Genius (double-whammy of wasting time and burning the computer candle) I kept a sense of flow throughout the day, getting a bunch of stuff done, calmly gliding in and out of meetings and generally keeping a fast typing speed when composing things. I've been puting more reading notes up on Schooled Green, and I wonder if that's too much of a luxury.
