Bailing the Leaky Liferaft…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: House

Pretty much nothing exciting, more desperate. I’m exploring a financial option that may, just may keep me going for while longer.

Interesting Weekend’s research into some of the finer points of photography, and some board gaming.

Pick up Sticks…

Bit of a yard clean up as I have another yard load of branches down from trees with the wild winds we’ve been regularly having.

I’ve devoted today to writing, online store maintenance and gaming. Movie Night tonight with Jamie. We’re having a “B Grade” horror night watching “Harbinger Down” followed by “B Grade” Science Fiction effort “Ice Pirates”.

Livestock by the Catload…

It seems to be Lizard, Centipede, Moth and Mouse Season again. Between the two furbags I’m ending up with all sort’s of presents.

Certification…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Photography, Tech

I’ve had to renew all my web server certificates for at least two of my domains and install them. It’s been and all morning effort. Seems to be problem free. I wouldn’t say it was cash free unfortunately! Also had some preliminary discussions with my Accountant about a possible option to stretch out how long […]

More youtube, I’m enjoying a bunch of Boardgames reviews & gameplay videos.

Research Day…

Today was mostly Photography research and some writing. Supplemented with much “youtube”.

Brainstorming…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Goals, Health, House, Work

A day to gather my resources I guess. Brainstorming survival options.

Boardgames played at Andrew’s today. Pandemic Star Wars Rebellion. Dead of winter. Zombie Dice An excellent day had by all I believe. PC repairs were swift & successful. Star Wars Rebellion ended up with Rebel Scum being allowed to live to fight another day, the world was consumed by 2 Pandemics, and a couple of […]

I have a Boardgaming session at Andrew’s today. Boardgames to hopefully be played today: Pandemic Star Wars Rebellion. Dead of winter. Zombie Dice Some of these will hurt like hell I think. I cut my finger (pinky) while making breakfast this morning and it’s stuffing my typing right up. I keep ending up hitting the […]

I woke up around 04:00 and it seems Chemoux has been keeping guard of me overnight so at least I’ve been in good paws. Heading out to a friend’s house tonight, fixing up his PC and board gaming tomorrow before heading home. Hoping this will improve my mood. On the positive side of life though […]

Managed a walk for couple of hours outside as brisk as it was; an apparent temperature of 2°. I did manage some meditation and tried brainstorming some stuff to sell. It’s 17:00 and I’m heading to bed. Just can’t be bothered with anything more today.

All I can say is “Doona Therapy” today.

Flying Altitude – Low…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Health

I’m quite depressed today, so I rescheduled an appointment I had in town today. Nothing to be achieved by it in my current frame of mind.

It seems that more & more the only aspects of Commonality between all the members of Australian Communities come down to living in the same place and a shared fear of unemployment. It’s hard to feel part of a community with which my values are so disparate. A Community which values people so little, and […]

Leaking Lifeboat…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Health, House, Humour, Work

Well any quick reprieve from this continuing downward trend in my capacity to stay emotionally afloat has been swiftly shot down with the email this morning advising that I was unsuccessful with the interview from last week. As I said to a couple of friends, I gave up trying to anticipate any interview results some […]

Weather Report…

All I can say is I loved the rain. Rain does at least offer me some solace.

By the Campfire…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Health, Work

I feel my level of Depression increasing daily at the moment. It’s not so much the lack of job prospects, it’s simply the Jackals “just outside the range of firelight”, and the Vultures circling above; financially I mean of course. I get daily calls for which I have no option at this stage to deal […]

Slowly Sliding…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Dreams, Health, Work

There’s really nothing to highlight today, I’m feeling the Depression closing in as the “unknown number” calls keep increasing and there’s only one potential job on the horizon. As I said, I felt the interview went well so I can only wait until next week to find out how it will pan out.

It’s been a fairly disheartening day. I watched my tax return of a bit over two thousand evaporate into paying bills that have been building up. It took less than five minutes to vanish and produce nothing except reaching ground zero from underneath. It seems the only advance we’ve made from the Eighteenth Century is […]

As best as I can tell the interview went well, but I’ve learned that I’m clearly not the best judge of such things these days, as you really can’t tell what’s going on behind the scenes. Often we are applying for jobs that are already decided for some internal candidate, and the business is just […]

Regrouping Tactics…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, General, Goals, Health, Work

Bit of a weird day so far, I slept in and that’s always a bit disconcerting for me these days. I realise now that I can’t afford my sleep pattern to be messed up for more than a day or so. I have decided to stay on the Anti-Depressants for another three to six months […]

Kicking up the Dust…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: General, Goals, House, Tech

It’s turned out to be still a bit too windy today for more Macro shooting, so I’ve been working on a Spring Clean. It’s amazing how much I still have in boxes that I could get rid of and not notice. Apparently I’m a bit of a hoarder. Unfortunately I can’t see any of it […]

Play It Safe…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Games, General, Relationships

Today I decided to heed the weather warnings and stayed close to home. I went around the corner to Chris’ house and we played Mansions of Madness Version 2. That was very entertaining, funny even, very enjoyable overall. The new mechanic of working with an application as the “Keeper” seems to work very well. Chris […]
