#LifeUnderThe Doom, Day 11: The Joy Of A Job


I passed the 10 day mark! It’s not very impressive, given how long the academic year is… but it’s something! The Oath is doing its job; I have been to every class so far, and I even managed to be on time (or well, be there before the lecture started) for most of them. Knowing that I tend to be late to everything and anything, that is nothing short of impressive.

Speaking of jobs… I gave my first private Dutch class this week, and immediately got booked for another 4 sessions the coming weeks, paid in advance. Can you believe it? I can hardly believe it myself. I know that millions of people earn money doing stuff every day, but I still find it incredible that I now have a job, and some form of income… (I make about 50 euros for 7.5 hours of work per month, which may not be much, but added to my monthly allowance it makes for a slightly more comfortable life.) If this month goes well, I might expand this little venture…

Also, I bought my tickets for FACTS, so next week saturday I’ll be rocking my Hysteria Alice costume at Flanders Expo! *excited* More on that in another post…

As for my symptoms… I am managing. Making to-do lists actually helps a lot to keep me on track: even when I don’t have the presence of mind to do something important, there will be some minor, random task on the list that I can do to keep myself from zoning off or crawling up in bed. No matter how mindless the activity, doing something is always better than doing nothing at all. I’m feeling the exhaustion though… There is no amount of coffee that stops me from feeling completely mentally knackered halfway the day. I am hoping that it will go away as I get used to the no-nonsense-allowed lifestyle.

That’s it for now! Hopefully I will still be on the right track by the time I post again…

Forever Doomed,

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
