I know. I'm so excited. :D

1.) I'm less happy about the friend of a friend who asked for a second date, seemed very keen in conversation, and then ignored the subsequent messages in which I tried to confirm a day and time. If you are not interested any longer, just say. I will not be offended. I will be more offended by being ignored. It isn't a pleasant feeling.
2.) The auxiliary cat is here. He is ensconced in the bathroom. He hisses and flattens his ears when I go near. That is a bit offputting when you're trying to use the loo. My existing cat is quite relaxed. I'm not sure she's realised there is another animal here, as she is not famous for her great powers of thought. Earlier on she heard the newcomer using his litter tray, so she dashed off to her own tray, as if to check there were no intruders there.
3.) My attempts not to bite off more than I can chew were successful for all of three months. Once again I'm swamped with things. Still, three months is a better break than anything I've managed before.
4.) I started seeing a therapist this week. She frustrated me by expressing surprise that someone with autism would work in this field. I always feel as if I need to justify myself or demonstrate my skills when people say that. Then again, I have come to therapy partly to help me challenge my feelings of inadequacy, so by telling her that I felt she was casting doubt on my capabilities I did get to the heart of the issue. Perhaps it will help.
5.) I need to be up ridiculously early tomorrow and I'm not in the mood.

1. Despite my best efforts to start the year with clarity, peace and stability, life had other plans for me. Although not as terrible as last year, I found myself feeling quite sad and I couldn't identify why when generally most things in my life had been going well.

2. The one thing that did come to mind was my unstable and uncertain relationship which after 4 years of ups and downs still seems to be growing in the same direction. No matter what I do or how hard I try to manage this, things just keep happening making the situation/problems worse. I wouldn't mind so much if some things were resolved at the same time but this is not the case. My choices are to either take full control regardless of the impact this may have or to continue 'go with the flow' which has really been getting on my nerves! I just want a simple life...

3. I'm also investing more time in to thinking about buying a house, looking around and arranging some viewings in the near future. This is of course a distraction but a useful one.

4. I am not sleeping very well. I am waking up 2-3 times a night for no reason. I am hoping going back to the gym this week will resolve this issue.

5. *sigh*

1. The waiting regarding DClin is making me feel on edge already.
2. Feeling in a stronger position this year in terms of my application... so we will see!
3. I have plan B :mrgreen:
4. Is it normal to want to eat beans on toast this much!? :lol:
5. The radiators in this office are on so high I feel like I'm abroad... I'm not complaining though!
