Haunted Dreams

Ah, you there, my Type-A friend. I'm glad you came today. Come in. What would you like? We've got coffees, teas, or clear still water perhaps? No juices at the moment, I'm afraid, I'm not having carbohydrates and it'd be fiddling with the devil to buy juice and then attempt not to drink it. The coffee is good, though, yes?

One moment. I'd like to light the fireplace. Maybe it's technically Spring, but this "Spring" in West Germany is chilly and cold and damp and grey, right down into the bones. But pardon me, I'm near veering into complaint, which is the exact opposite of the place I want to go. I'd much rather pull up by the warm fire's glow with non-carbohydrate beverage-of-choice and muse a little about philosophy and psychology with you -- and maybe it'll even be productive for us?

Ah, the warmth is nice.

Notes from the Convergence of Events of 26th July 2013

Navigating yourself when in a down state is one of the most valuable possible skills. And, extremely difficult.

One of the things that leads to snakebitten days is a convergence of negative events. Most people who develop healthy work habits and lifestyles can shrug off one or two things wrong. But when a mix of successes, accidents, and failures hits at the same time, you can lose time to the snakebitten day.

Navigating those days into being successful is really key.

Here's what happened yesterday:

*Wake up at 4:30AM (normal) after going to bed at 6:50PM (slightly early, 9.5 hours sleep).
