Had a number of setbacks this week, in pretty much every aspect of my life. I am going to be very busy over the next couple of months, mostly doing stuff that doesn't have a direct reward for me.  However:

- this weekend I'm presenting data on a panel at one of NZ's biggest festivals*, that demonstrates the efficacy of pill testing in changing usage intent for drugs.  I am still gobsmacked that nobody's done this before, but it makes me happy to be able to do this.
- I booked myself in for a massage.  Being nice to myself OMG
- I am very happy with my body right now.  It has the usual middle aged niggles but I'm fitter and stronger than I've ever been and for once I feel like I also look good.

So it's not all bad.  I am barely keeping my head above water, but as long as I'm moving forward things will keep changing, yes?

* Feeling vaguely weirded out by the prospect of an event at which you can buy stuff.  But - coffee!  Eee!

Ugh, sorry to hear that you're having to do so much at once :( Especially when it's not really benefiting you! But yay for presenting data! Good on you. And good to hear about your body, too. I hear you on the strength. I really need to build mine up. I've recently restarted my core exercises, because I'm feeling really floppy in the middle and I'm sure it's not helping my back (which is also not helped by the fact that I'm doing a lot of sitting at the moment).

Hang in there.

Sorry to hear you are being busy! Well busy is good when you need to earn money :-)...
*- I booked myself in for a massage. Being nice to myself OMG Good for you! I need to get better at this myself... I definitely would benefit from a massage or two!
