So I attended the VIATeC Awards last night, and though the awards part was a bit lengthy, the DDP afterwards made up for it in spades! I ran into tons of friends I hadn’t seen in ages, and being outside dancing in the streets in summer is far more fun than going to some after party in a club. What a stellar way to integrate an expensive formal event with Victoria’s younger demographic (who are a lot if our future tech innovators). They even coordinated with the police so a bunch of streets were blocked off for us. Bravo.
Super mega bonus highlight of the night: boyfriend getting off work to join in time, and being completely dumbfounded that the most attractive man I have ever seen was already mine! It may have been because we haven’t seen eachother all week, and I had my fair share of CRTL Malt DEL with dinner, but damn.
Because you will get to the point where all you can do is order Pizza Hut from your computer at work so you can pick it up on your way home, bring said pizza straight to bed, and marathon watch internet tv until you fall asleep…and then do it again with the leftovers the next night, except that your computer freezes and you give up instead of getting up to fix it because that would necessitate leaving the warm bed.
I sound like a sad middle aged single man, but really it’s the only way I can cope when working this much on deadline and when my boyfriend is on opposite work hours! Then I can at least lean on him to feed me and cuddle me and make sure I actually sleep enough.
I can’t wait for tomorrow to be over so I can get back to normal again.
Some days you have to face your fears and get REALLY uncomfortable. The part a lot of people don’t mention about facing your fears is that it puts you into that awful cold but sweaty fight or flight response. I hate it.
Some days nothing goes right.
Some days no matter what you do, people find ways to attack you, you find new ways to doubt yourself, and you are so over it.
Some days you are just so over all of it. And you’re ready to say “fuck this” and run away and hide.
…and then? Some days end with someone stopping to say, “Hey, you’re great. Thanks.” And then it changes your outlook on EVERYTHING and you think to yourself “Really? Oh. Okay then. I guess everything is okay” and then you feel fine.
