Since I don’t have any vanilla essence, I’m burning an incense stick inside the fridge. It stinks in there. The kitchen had a foul odor for which the incense stick was in the kitchen to begin with. The second stick saw the fridge, as I had the idea after it had been burning for some time. I hope it works.
The new bluetooth speaker broke my old one, after I attempted to connect them both via a built in option on my phone, dual audio (connecting two bluetooth speakers at once). The bluetooth speaker is louder, as it has two speakers instead of one from the now broken speaker. This speaker produces a fuller sound, as you might expect.
My desk is too narrow to work at comfortably. It’s wide enough but from the front to the back, there’s no room to shift anything forward. I looked at my old desk, at mum’s, and found that I could dismantle it, and bring it here. The only issue I have is that my desk doesn’t have any drawers, while this one does. I’m not sure where I’d put everything from the drawers in the desk.
I’m still reading ‘Telling True Stories’, by Matthew Ricketson. I’m looking forward to finishing it, as I have a pile of books to get through, it, and another one, are both library books so I’m attempting to finish reading them before they’re due back. I have ‘Painted Words 2017’ which is a compilation of TAFE’s Writing and Editing course students work. I need to read that one, too. I’ve put learning Arabic on hold while I have so much reading material. I think I should set aside a little time each week toward learning Arabic.
I had a pretty good Christmas with my immediate family. It was a nice occasion although fraught with the challenges of moving house. Mum was working today so I left her house last night to come home. I was tired and almost immediately went to bed once I got home. I had some difficulty getting to sleep; however, once I was asleep I slept through till about 9 this morning, or at least I was up by 9:30. I suppose I wasted about 15 minutes trying to get back to sleep but the room is too lit by that hour, although I could have used a bit more sleep.
I’m refraining from smoking (smoking as little as possible), in light of the new year approaching, I’d like to be off the ciggies by Jan, 1st. I’m almost there, wish me luck. I have avoided alcohol during this year’s festive season – only drinking about half a glass of wine at mum’s last night. I’m glad to be off the piss. Charles drinks as often as he can and although I’ve drank with him on a couple of occasions, I didn’t get drunk. I started to get a little tipsy, at one point throwing up from feeling queasy.
I’ve been struggling with my diet, as well, eating far too little for a longer time than I care to remember right now. I’m not sure whether I’ve developed an eating disorder but I’m finding that I’ve removed myself from eating anything substantial in one sitting. This is leading me to have issues in the toilet, such as feeling like I need to poo often but there being little to nothing there. I wonder how this will catch up with me, and so I’d better see a doctor. I’m afraid I may have thrown up my stomach acid some time ago. My appetite is non-existent. I’m happy that I’m losing weight, though.
