This is me exhibiting can-do spirit.
I am in the land of the living! It's just that this land of the living over here has been insanely busy with several design projects, my last few shoe store shifts, trying madly to wrangle the 2011 Canadian Weblog Awards into some kind of submission, writing for Aiming Low, working on a Hipstamatic-related side project, getting ready for my road trip through the southern United States at the beginning of December, and remembering to eat. I've lost five pounds over the last couple of weeks while I pushed pixels around and alternated between vats of coffee and doses of Rescue Remedy.
I wish I had more to report, but I'm happily swinging around the pushing pixels → coffee → writing → pushing pixels → Canadian Weblog Awards → coffee → sleeping → eating, for God's sake → pushing pixels loop. And I do mean happily. I'm quite enjoying myself in between bouts of self-doubt and righteous indignation that anyone could disagree with my choice of blue.
At any rate, thank you for your concern. I pulled myself up after that entry twelve days ago, picked the kitchen floor lint off my face, and gave myself permission to sleep when necessary, cry when I felt like it, and stop long enough to enjoy myself. Noses on grindstones don't last very long. Of course, mine's still on the grindstone, but less continually than before.
So, what about you? Are you still on the floor? Or are you in the process of dusting yourself off?
