Meeting tomorrow and...

Hah. Look. My avatar is dressed like "me" again, black hair and all. I've spent the past few days pondering the fact that graduate school is meant to break you as much as it possibly can (perhaps a sorting process, wheat from chaff), and that graduate school doesn't suffer fools. Wish I were a bit less of one -- part of my character is to play the holy fool, and my yappy mouth has often gotten me into trouble.

All that aside, I'm wearing powerful clothing. Black and gold, mystery and power and wealth. Do you believe that you can manifest what you want in life, if you talk about it often enough? I'd like to believe that this is true...

Once upon a time I wasn't a mom, wasn't playing Second Life, wasn't a graduate student. I felt lazy, happy, and unfulfilled. I'd much rather be at this point in my life, where I'm teetering on the verge of despair because all of these things compete for time in a rather dramatic way. It's okay to be unhappy sometimes, no joke. I'm not reaching for the prozac! Unhappiness is sometimes a sign that you're hard at work.

Someday I'll figure out the magic balance. Until then, I'd just like to say that I love my Luth handbag AO.

Here, have a hardworking hug <3

/me hugs

Good to see you back to 'normal' :D

Hugs and good luck from your fellow postgrad in far away Germany!

Btw, Prozac doesn't make you "happy". I had to take it once for half a year and it just kept me from getting seriously depressed, but it never worked as a "happy pill"....

Niv - thanks for that, and yep, back to black <3

alyx -- good call, you're right.

actually they just released a study (somewhere) that prozac has no more anti-depressant effect than the placebo...
thank you Harper's (it's the opposite of the index...near the back of the mag)
