happy

(no subject)

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!
