Therapy went well yesterday, which was good. I scheduled another appointment for the start of the week when I’ll be giving the big presentation. I’m just kind of thinking with as freaked out as I’m starting to get that I might need a session with T-bone to help get myself centered again. There’s just something so amazing about having a therapist that not only doesn’t flinch when you say “fuck” but will also use it in conversation with you.
At any rate, I did a run through last night with Mom and Josh and it went alright, just way too short. I’ve got 50 minutes for the presentation and questions and even with my fumbling and being flustered it only took me 20. Not cool. But they said if I could stop talking a million words a minute that would probably help. Duly noted. And Rosa went through the slides and gave me some good feedback, which helped as well. The run through with the squirrels is at 1 this afternoon and then I’m off to see shrinky-poo.
I’m not anticipating any big changes or anything, this is more just a routine check to make sure that everything is predominantly smooth sailing right now. And I have to say, for the most part it is. Josh is mostly better, I’m sleeping mostly well, work is mostly not too ridiculous, and my partner for school mostly sent me his part of the project. Mostly, yes.
Anywhoo… I’m hoping the rest of the day is good and the rest of the week is tolerable. I don’t feel like I’m quite firing on all 6 cylinders right now, but this late in the semester that’s really to be expected. And I may just have to beat the hell out of Josh, but that kind of remains to be seen.
