Statistics and Analysis


@aussieninja's Activity Notes:

I've always used exercise as a means to sleep. Buried deep within my brain is the fear that if I don't @exhaust myself, I'll lie awake all night tormented by all the thoughts. As a general rule, this has pretty much worked for me... but I'm finding that using exercise to curb anxiety is working really well for me too.

Had a super stressful day yesterday... it was payday which is always exciting, and so I logged into my bank to find that my account was totally in the negatives - which is super crazy given that I had just been paid and put in the insurance cheque last week. It turns out the bank had rejected the cheque because it hadn't been endorsed by another bank, and now it's lost in the snail mail wilderness, and my account has been frozen, and, well, all the funs.

Add onto that, I pretty much had my most stressful day at work in a while... a mini project I've been chasing another team for ages, finally got their act together... in the very last moment... and now I've got to implement a ton of stuff over the weekend because it all has to be done by Monday... if they had delayed a fraction longer or a fraction less, it wouldn't now be a total rush.

Add onto that and that... looks like I've got that job... but I can't seem to get an interview at the US embassy to change my visa over. Canada is being rough, their first available dates are in September, Bahamas is July and Barbados is the 24th of May... which wouldn't get me processed and back in time for the start date they wanted... so basically I just keep refreshing the Canada interview page hoping that someone cancels or reschedules their appointment in the exact moment I'm looking.

All this means that going out for a run was amazing. I was tired, sore and emotionally exhausted, and so just took it totally easy... and it was delightful.

Thank you @dizzyapple, I really appreciate both your comment and your recommendation... that's really nice of you! Thank you!

It truly is too birds with one stone, I immediately felt better and could think more clearly... time away from my computer, and burning away that excess energy were so good. I haven't resolved any of my problems yet, but I can attack them with a more clear head.
