Hello I'm alive

... but only just. The past two weeks have involved 5.30am alarms (damn surgical ward rounds), combined with the failure to get myself into my bed earlier at night, so I'm living a kind of zombie existence right now. I've had a bad few days - you know the ones when you're feeling confused and incompetent about everything, and your brain is mush, and you know you could do better but can't be motivated to try? Yeah. I'm ready for my mid year break, but since I have to wait another couple of weeks for that I gave myself an undeserved night off yesterday.





After a hot chocolate and a bit of reading, a double rainbow (which I'm sure all Sydneysiders saw twenty times on their Facebook feeds), a disgusting (in a good way) burger and fries with cider, and popping in to see YY's Honours exhibition, I'm feeling slightly less undead. I will continue trying to resurrect myself so that I can maintain some sort of semblance to a regular posting schedule here.

  1. I know too well what it feels like to run around like a zombie. It has happened to me as well this week and therefore I took today and tomorrow off to get back into balance. Hope you will feel better soon as well!

  8. Ah man, it's a vicious circle right? Working so hard that you want some time to yourself resulting in less time for sleep... hope you manage to get back to a more normal routine soon. On another note, that mug/cup in your first snap! And how're you finding The Luminaries? x

    1. It's my second reading and I'm enjoying it more than the first! It's hard to get into so kind of knowing what will happen actually makes it better.

    1. Reading is my #1 choice of relaxation! It's a book set during the Hokitika (New Zealand) gold rush in the 19th century, it's a bit of a murder mystery and has a really intricate plot.

  15. Glad to hear that you were able to refresh but I hope that you get a longer extended amount of time to rest and not be so busy soon! Lovely post, and that book looks super interesting - clearly I am just going off the cover here (As a designer I am guilty of judging books by their covers lol) but I might just have to read it.

    1. It's a murder mystery set in Victoria-era New Zealand, during the gold rush! It's really good, but hard to get into at first.

  17. Second reading of The Luminaries? I imagine the story really lends itself to more than one reading - super intricate! x

  18. Omg hahah I swear I saw that picture of the rainbow and the double rainbow on facebook a million times so i guess i don't mind seeing it one more time ;D
    That burger looks like the ones from Coco Cubano - not a real fan of those though :S
    Glad to know that you're alive.. and had a (kind of) eventful night :))

  22. I'm about to start The Luminaries! Wow, I don't envy your 5.30am starts at all. I bet you're glad to be done with those for the time being..! Enjoy catching up on sleep :) xx

  23. ha, yeah i know that feeling all too well. but at least it's only temporary and sometimes feeling like a zombie is necessary to make you appreciate how much better you feel when you are getting enough sleep. at least that's what i tell myself!
