Geeking by in May & June

As you can tell from how amazingly late this is, my May didn’t really go to plan. Well, the first half did. I’d planned for this to be just a single month update like normal, however, once I got started I ended up talking about most of June as well. Including the last two weeks, which is the first two weeks of June, also helps me catch up a bit too and is one less thing I need to schedule this month. A Blogging I Will Go As explained in last months Geeking by By, I was launching a new blog schedule this month andRead More →

Geeking by in April

Last month disappeared in a whirlwind and April crept by so slowly! It wasn’t an easy month in many ways and a lot of work got done behind the scenes rather than on the front of the blog. I did work out some awesome things that I am happy to finally share with you!   New Blog Schedule Thingie! Totally technical term there, however, it is an accurate one because I am using ‘schedule’ in a lose way. I need something flexible so that I don’t get overly flustered or bury myself in work or guilt for not getting work done. I am hoping toRead More →

Just Geeking by in March

Umm…. where the hell did March go?! It feels like I just finished February’s geeking by post, and I almost didn’t realise this one was due out. Woops! It really doesn’t feel like I did much at all for most of this month and then bam, The Sci Fi Weekender convention (22nd – 25th) was suddenly upon us. Since I’m dedicating a whole post to that experience that might mean this monthly update is a bit on the wee side of things.1   All Clear Let’s start with what has been the elephant in the room for me for a while now; my chest x-rayRead More →

January Update

My life very rarely goes according to plan (this January especially), and the past year has been a lesson in accepting that. In doing so I realised that I’d completely shied away from posting personal blog posts, hiding what was happening in my life and especially anything related to my health. I’d comment about it, usually to apologise for a late post, and that would be it. That doesn’t jive with the whole point of this blog, nor with my way of living and I realised that I’ve fallen into a pattern of shame and anxiety about what other people think. In trying to cultivateRead More →

Blog Hiatus

It’s been months since my last blog post, and it’s taken me until now to find the strength and energy to actually say ‘hey, I’m on hiatus!’ officially. I’m doing ok, the blog is here to stay, but the more I learn about my life now with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), I am realising that everything is different. Everything has to be done differently. That means I need to take some time to get back on my feet, and what was supposed to be a month’s break has now become three months thanks to an ongoing viral infection that seems to love me just aRead More →
