And so it ends.

Congratulations to...
Spoiler for Hiden:
me, for staying awake all the way through!  :P ;D
I'll probably comment more tomorrow.  :)

I'm not watching it after all :-[
At the same it's the final of BBC Young Dancer 2019, and I'm afraid to say it's much better...
Hah. No worries.  ;D
I'm not that into the contest either to be honest (though I always appreciate a good show). Watching it is just a very long tradition.

I appreciate the reminder. I have no interest in Eurovision, even though most Icelanders are obsessed with it. I am SO indifferent to it that a few years in a row I called mom in the middle of it simply because  I'd forgotten it was on.

Now I call her every year on purpose, as tradition. She doesn't appreciate it much.  :)
I think most mothers appreciate their sons calling them... even if their sons do it in jest.  ;)

It has begun...

I guess it's time to leave behind the 1001 posts "milestone". It was... fun?... while it lasted.  ??? ;D

@ArcaneArtsVelho, @Lady Ty, are you watching? ;D
Yes. I did watch the first semifinal and will most likely watch the second semi and the final too. So, I'll be here for the final to see if anyone else is watching.  :)

...and good luck to both your countries.  ;D
Weeeelllll... There will always be next year.  ;D
Good luck to you with the election. Better luck, even.  ;)

Sorry to hear about your father, Jmack.  :(

Guess who just booked their Summer hol?
Took me a good minute to decipher what that strange word meant, I kid you not. I'm even slower than usual this morning.  ::)

Also, this is my 1000th post.
Yay?  ???
 ;D

"Tea" without any actual tea in it is not tea, Bea. It's an infusion.  ;)   Fight me!  8) :P

I can't seem to handle not being in control...
Not being in control is one of the few things I really hate in this world because the fear of it has, at times, affected my life very negatively (and still does, tbh).

What can I do?
ATTENTION! Probably really poor advice incoming...  :-\

I think that when things get out of your control, you can (1) accept that you are not in control, (2) try to steer yourself away from the effects of the things that are out of your control, and(/or?) (3) not think about the things that are out of your control.

So what does that mean? Well, your fridge not working and the repairman's schedule are out of your control. That is just how it is, and you can't really do anything about it. What you can do is to try to re-schedule and change your own plans to best accommodate the uncertain things (for example: making your plans for evenings when the repairman is unlikely to work, limit your need for a fridge by eating outside or staying at your friend's place if possible, etc.): Find ways to limit the negative effects.

As for the not thinking about it part... well, that's not always easy. But doing something you really like usually helps at least a bit. For me, nowadays, that would be either exercising or listening to music. For you? Reading, maybe? Or going for a walk/jog? And if breathing exercises help with the stress, then definitely do them too.



Heart beating quickly, feeling on the cusp of crying, a rage boiling inside.
This isn't normal, is it?
Well, based solely on my personal experience, I'd say that seems pretty normal.

But then again... what is normal anyway?  ::) ;)



What I'm trying to say is...
Spoiler for Hiden:
Hugs!  :-*

Happy and peaceful Yuletide, everyone!  :)

...I'm looking at you ArcaneArtsVelho...
Oi! I can't manage to read more than one book a year.  ;) ;D

I haven't got a book to read for this year yet, so I may end up breaking my streak.  :-[
