September 15th, 2022 – 1,450

Ah the awkward calm before the ILL. I am 1,000% about to get ill, but I am going to do everything I can to avert it. Working from home tomorrow to minimise exertion, focusing on small and low intensity tasks – as I have a build up anyway – and then basically sleeping through the weekend in its almost entirety. And then boom, am student, which is weird, but also cool. I just hope I am not ill by then. And on the Monday I hope I’m well enough to enjoy Return to Monkey Island.

I was too out of it to say so yesterday, but TEL is now over 90K. Surreal. Writing the last thousand of the final chapter before the epilogue tomorrow, and then, well after that, I did it. A whole series. One that needs a lot of TLC and relies on people wanting to read something that starts in 2011 and ends in 2023. Just like my build up to this uni attempt, funnily enough.
