It feels like a drop in the ocean, but ...

... one day I made a bargain with my inner child, Ingenua. She didn't see the point of doing ... well ... anything. It wasn't fun any more, and there were too many scary thoughts going around. So I said, "How about, for every little thing we do that is good for me, we'll give five cents to charity:water? How does that sound?"

And she smiled.

Today wasn't one of the good days.

After staying up horribly late last night, I was so tired this morning that I wasn't motivated to get anything done.  I procrastinated over going out, because I wanted to find a card to send with a letter, and I had no idea where the card might be in amongst my clutter.  In the end I decided I would just go out to the newsagent and buy another card, but I never did that.  Instead, I had a rather unpleasant phone call, that rather ruined the rest of my day.

Here's today's tally:
Tuesday, 15th June 2010
Got out of bed before midday. 5c.
Made the bed. 5c.
Got dressed.  5c.
Swished the toilet: 5c.
Had something substantial for breakfast - just.  5c.
Made dinner: 5c.
Cleaned up the kitchen after cooking: 5c.
Cleared the plates after dinner: 5c.
Had a shower: 5c.
Scrubbed the shower: 5c.

Yup, there wasn't really anything of value between breakfast and dinner.  Didn't get anything done that I intended to do, didn't do anything fun.  Just mooched about on the internet all day.

Oh well ... That's 50c earned, at least.  If I count writing my blog and shining my sink, and go to bed before midnight, I'll have earned my puzzle book.

Time to double-check the totals ...

29th May: 35c
30th May: 45c (I counted wrong in my post.)
31st May: 65c
1st June: 55c
2nd June: 55c
3rd June: 30c
6th June: 25c
7th June: 20c
12th June: 40c
13th June: $1.00
14th June: $1.00
Missing days: $1.35
15th June, early morning: 30c
15h June, rest of the day: 50c

Total so far: $7.85.  Well, I'm closer than I thought ... But still a little way to go.


  1. Hey Angel!

    Didn't realise you had a new blog. I've been reading through it and it looks like you've been suffering a fair bit with depression, amotivation, anhedonia, etc.

    I hope you're keeping on top of it - it's highly debilitating and general understanding amongst non-sufferers I find to be appalling.

    Keep up the writing!

    (I wish I could say the same for my blog - it got spammed so much I just stopped)


  2. Hi Cam!

    Thanks for the comment! Been a bit busy to reply lately (Yeah, I'm unreliable) but it's great to hear from you again :) Thanks for the good wishes. Depression has been keeping me under for nearly a year now, but I'm starting to come out of it. And hopefully I'll be able to write something useful about it, sometime ...

    I miss your blog. But I'm hoping you have better things to occupy your time!
