2 weeks down.
50 to go.
All is well-ish with the world.
Bet you thought I bailed…and by ‘you’, I mean the 2 people actually reading this. Well, I didn’t. I’m still here—-and fast approaching the 2 week mark. And you know what 2 weeks means: only 50 weeks left in 2 days!
Here are some highlights from the past 5 days:
I saved a good $50 - $100.
spent a good $300 - $500 on things I don’t really need.
And by things I mean nail art and eyelash extensions. And vintage clothes. And under eye cream…and a new watch band. And a vintage purse.
I spent way more than I should’ve on a lot of things really needed.
I was sober on a weekend dinner & drinks night. And while I still can’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that nothing good happens after 2am, I can confirm that pretty much nothing happens before 11pm.
I got up before 9am on Saturday and Sunday: 10 million productivity points
I went to the Apple Genius bar on Sunday: 100 million productivity points
I spent my entire Genius bar appt wondering if the Genius that helped me had a girlfriend: minus 1 productivity point
But I paid attention to everything he said: +1billion productivity points
Then I wondered if he didn’t have a girlfriend and he asked me out if I’d say yes: minus 1billion productivity points
Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus.
And on the 7th day…
Sleep: never sounder
Productivity: never higher
Goals: to turn my gained productivity and new found rest into more interesting posts
Laughter is day, and sobriety is night; a smile is the twilight that hovers gently between both, more bewitching than either.
—Henry Ward Beecher

When you stop drinking, you have to deal with this marvellous personality that started you drinking in the first place.
