Getting this thread back on topic, I really need to start avoiding Twitter. Every time I log in I just get reminded of how much awful, terrible, miserable, infuriating, tedious, nasty, and depressing stuff keeps happening in the world every day.

Twitter gets paid on you scrolling through despair. Worst site. My life got immeasurable better when I cut down on my time there. I also suggest not reading replies...

Don't know how I ended up looking at this forum again but it has been a major trip down memory lane!

I changed by name recently but was originally _meehan_ and this was the place I spent most of my time

Ending up here could probably inadvertently be an aaarghhh; I have been staying up all hours reading boards instead of sleeping since my workplace closed over this virus! What adult stays in bed until 2pm.

Me. I'm the adult.

We're all adults now!

I can't concentrate on ANYTHING. My attention span is like a gnat right now

Arghhh for the day: I put out my yoga mat, wore workout gear, but never managed to carry out the workout

I was in the middle of my exams when covid really kicked off. I had 3 done and then 2 of them got cancelled until the summer, which really sucks

I'm in the last 24 days of my masters and I am flat out looking out the window. I haven't been this distracted since my leaving cert. And I have so much to do!

On top of this, my job is getting a major kicking by this sudden recession.

But again. Just looking out the window.

Haven't seen my boyfriend in weeks. And now our plans to live together are potentially on hold because this recession might affect my job prospects moving west.

My brain is full. I am anxiety.

I'm finding it so hard to get stuff done even though I'm finished college in 4 weeks time. Like the fact I'm working from home has just sent procrastination levels through the roof

I got invited a few days ago to read some of my poems at an online poetry event tonight. It will potentially be the largest audience I've ever read to. I was nervous already (being new to this kind of performance) and listening to the other poets who have read so far is making me feel worse. >_<

I should really have more confidence in myself and my writing by now.

It was my turn tonight to be quiz-master for the weekly online table quiz. I tried to make it a little bit challenging. The top two ended up scoring just over 50%, but the dude in third place seems to be pissed off about how hard it was. Bleh.

Pub quiz fact! No one actually wants to be challenged at a pub quiz, they want the illusion of challenge!

Spent €25 on a football from Amazon last month. It's flat in my sitting room now due to lack of use. >_<
