The Me Project: Day 15

Still sleeping weird patterns. Still haven’t cleaned out the fridge, so still haven’t bought groceries, and still haven’t stopped buying the fast and easy junk food.

Doesn’t help that I’m feeling the omgihavetogetajobreallyreallyREALLYsoon panic building — and panic makes me eat. EI is taking the full 28 days to make a decision about restarting my previous claim. I have no idea why. It’s not complicated, but they did the same thing last time. I have to call them tomorrow morning (Monday). My request to get a lump sum transfer value of my unlocked-in pension is also straggling — turns out that, despite my having mailed it in 3 months ago, it never actually hit someone’s desk until my call lit a fire under someone’s butt; and it also turns out that they were waiting for a copy of my birth certificate. I have to call them later on this week to see what else they’re waiting for. Once they have everything from my old HR department, Superannuation has up to 45 days to issue the payment. (If they’re anything like EI, they’ll make sure they take the full 45 days — after all, why make it easy for the punter.) *sigh*

I may not have been doing a lot of weight-loss related stuff over the last couple of days, but I have been doing a lot of thinking (in between the O’Henry chocolate bars). I’m a little bit closer to knowing what I want to do, where I want to go, so it hasn’t been a completely unproductive weekend. I’m going to go try to get some normal sleep and then start my December by (a) getting at least my kitchen cleaned and (b) getting stuck back into some contract work I’d let slide while I was working (they may have given up on me).

Musique de la fin de semaine:

Pink's Funhouse album coverPink‘s Funhouse

She’s hands down one of my favourite musical artists. She writes or co-writes very powerful lyrics with a catchy sound, and has a truly unique voice. If you’ve ever seen her interviewed, you know she’s just an all-around cool character in general.


The week ahead, from Jonathan Cainer: Strange though this may sound, Some people are somewhat envious of you. They can’t see the world through your eyes. They don’t know what you are going through or how demanding it is. All they can see is what you seem to be accomplishing. They like the look of your luck and rather wish they could be in a similar position. Even if you were to stop to explain things from your point of view, they would not listen. Jealousy doesn’t respond to reason. Nor does prejudice. Both these ‘monsters’ are somewhere in your vicinity. Don’t fight or challenge them, pity them. Or better still, ignore them. Persevere. Your enemies, this week, can yet become your friends. for Sunday, November 30: Although your proverbial ducks are all lining up, they appear to be doing it in the distance. This means that you may still have to wait for success, but at least you now realize that it’s on the way. As much as you want the rewards you believe you have earned, don’t lose sight of the non-material perks, too.
