All That Was Lost, Will Be Found

The Lost SymbolI like this simple photo because it could be understood as a symbol for closure. How is that for a lovely start to a new blog entry. 😛 Symbol For Closure, all inspired by Dan Browns not so new novel The Lost Symbol which I just finished about 15 minutes ago. A highly enjoyable read. You can get totally lost in it, which is a plus, there are so many conspiracy theories in it that your brain cant stop thinking “what if” and “really” and “if thats true”… It didnt even bother me that much that its practically a 1:1 copy of The Da Vinci Code in its structure and various other elements. All that is left to be said without giving anything away is: its brilliant. If you liked The Da Vinci Code you will love this one as well. I give it 5 stars out of 5. Now what to read next…

wood for heatingAs every year, we got a truckload, to be understood quite literally, full of wood. We heat with wood only so this is not even that much. Its a lot of work to put away, but that is what brothers are for… he is on it right now.

This week has been quite uneventful but not stress-less, unfortunately. I just dragged myself through the week and Friday I can honestly say was pure hell. At a point of exhaustion you turn on auto pilot and hope it gets you through the day safe and sound. I am so overloaded, everything is too much. I need so much time to rest, not even funny. We are repainting our entrance room by my friends schedule not by mine, she really means well but it was way too much. I need to learn to say NO for my own good, really. Rehab would probably be really good for me to shut off and let others take care of me. My head is so full, its really taking its toll. And on that note: Uni is starting tomorrow and I still have a paper left to write. 👿 But Uni will still be good for me. It will nurture the intellectual me and keep my precious brain cells alive… hopefully. The post office is not a place for people who think and who are smarter than a pile of poop. 😕

I had my first guitar lesson of the year on Friday. Our goal this year is the big and final concert to finally finish the music school that I am attending since the age of 8. It will be big. You need to play infront of a commission first, only when you pass that you are eligible to play the concert. The goal should be to practice about 3-4 hours a day, but we both agreed that with my schedule that is completely insane, so we settled on 1.5 hours. Its going to be a heck of a time. Preparing for that concert will require nothing less but pure discipline, will power, meds 🙂 and all of the energy I can spare. The pieces need to be practically killed in order to perform them on the highest level I am able to. I am not worried. I want this. And everyone that knows me knows that I have a very strong head and a lot of will power to achieve everything I set my heart and head on. Having said that I am sure I will have multiple nervous break downs along the way and whine your ears off. 🙄 But isnt that part of it all.

Here are two of the three Baby Bunnies now 4 months old and still doing excellent:

On Tuesday I am going back to the outpatient skin clinic. I am pretty sure that I have a super-infection, which is an infection in the infection and its not nice. Skin is getting worse (probably because of it) which has me worried because it really shouldnt on these kind of meds.

Have a great week everyone, enjoy autumn and the season of Halloween! group hug

    Oh, good luck with skin…Bunnies look adorable.

    Can’t wait to read Lost Symbol…in 2 weeks when it comes out in cheap paperbook here.

    I hope someday soon the brain & soul-sucking P.O. is but a distant memory.
