Archives for Month: November 2011

It’s been a while since I’ve been so free of worry, but I definitely feel that way now. My doctors told me that I won’t notice the antidepressants having any effect until three weeks into taking them, but it’s been a week and I feel pretty good. My sleep is still being interrupted, and my mouth is constantly feeling dry, but they are things I can deal with. Oh, and I’ve lost weight… but no […]

Put simply, a lucid dream is a dream in which you are aware that you’re dreaming. There are two types of lucid dreaming.

DILD – dream-initiated lucid dream: a normal dream in which the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream.
WILD – wake-initiated lucid dream: dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness.

I’m very sure that most people have had a DILD […]

So, it’s day three of my effexor/venlafaxine medication for depression and it’s… it’s okay. Last time I wrote a blog post I was so tired I could barely open my eyes. I’ve had a couple of episodes like that – at work no less – and it’s not been very pleasant. One of the side effects is yawning but the past two days I’ve been yawning so much that my jaw hurts. The first night, […]

Yesterday I went to the Brain Dynamics Centre to take part in a depression study. My depression was found to be significant enough to warrant medical attention. I have previously gone to a psychologist and talked to people and found that my self harming tendencies had ceased. I have, however, always been moody, irritable, short-tempered and easily annoyed.

Taking part in this study was my own personal choice even though I was very nervous […]

At the dinner table, I was silent.

I daydream a lot.

If someone were to ask me, “Do you have a vivid imagination?” the answer would be yes. Yes I do. If I try hard enough; if something means a lot to me – I can imagine it. Which is why, two days ago, I shut my eyes, I turned my music up loud, and I pictured myself at the Jebediah show. I was […]

Well, I didn’t go. My mum thought it would be nice to just “ban” (whatever word you want to put here, really) me from going to Jebediah’s show, so I didn’t go. Yeah, it’s ludicrous alright. Yeah, I got really upset and angry. Yes, I tried talking to her. Yes, I tried everything, besides, it’s too late now. I would be there right now if I had gone. I would have had a good time. […]

Earlier today I realised I didn’t have much credit left on my phone. Ever since 2002, I have had the same phone number; been with the same provider; been on the same plan. Today I decided to make the change and go with a plan that suits me a bit better – that has better bonuses. I’m with Vodafone, and maybe someone will make me change my views later down the track, but Vodafone are […]

I have often cried from happiness, which I understand that not many people can do, or have experienced. I’ve had a couple of people find it strange and wonder how it feels, and I find it exceptionally hard to describe. I’m sure most people know what it’s like when you cry of sadness, so here is my attempt at writing about it in comparison.

It feels so, so overwhelming. I’ve never been drunk, but […]

And it actually has a band in it! …no? Lame joke not accepted? Just got hit by a tomato… oh… yes.

Since my last post I’ve been busying myself with quite a few things, the first of which is my 101 in 1001 list. For those who aren’t familiar with the idea, it’s basically a project where you write 101 specific goals and attempt to complete them in 1001 days. You can find out […]

Yesterday I had my last class for my Bachelor degree and I am rather thrilled. I keep checking my enrolment and seeing “Potentially Complete”, which is definitely a nice thing to see. Soon I’ll be able to fully enrol into my Graduate Diploma program for 2012. I can hardly wait. I am really looking forward to next year.

I bought ingredients for fridgecake yesterday, and James and I went through the self-serve checkout because […]
