Ok no I’m just straight up ill. My throat is sore and my head is swimming, just feeling about as wretched as can be. Work is gonna be, interesting tomorrow like this, but I’ll make it work. I’m not sure what I will do to get past this other than try to write earlier tomorrow and hope that helps abate this a bit, but if that doesn’t work – as I expect it won’t – I guess there’s a sick day in my near future. I’m going to try and not burn myself out, but as I have volunteering in the evening too I am going to be pushing it batteries wise.

My progress in TEL is still strong, but I am also looking forwards to this being done. 1K isn’t going to necessarily get ‘easier’ past 4Y1K, but moving away for now from Main Story Focus will allow me a bit more freedom to throw together just any words when I’m having a rough day. I still don’t know how I’ll find that, or even if I’ll be able to as it might leave me feeling deflated, but I don’t think there’s too much danger given I will have plenty of essay practice to do. Or maybe I’ll end up doing a bit of story every day anyway. I guess we’ll see.
