the last four days of absolute mad behaviour has caught up with me. My hand in was on monday yet I still decided to go to my mothers to help her out with a co-housing weekend she was running. I then thought it wise to drive 2.5 hours south to go to an afternoon picnic with my cousin… get drunk, sleep for four hours, then get up to drive home (possibly somewhat unsafely!). It was on this drive home that I got stuck in traffic for 2.5 hours, making the whole trip 4 hours long. I then had to stay up till 5am, power on through with energy drinks to finish all my lead up work. I had three hours sleep and got up at 8.30 to install said work, having picked it up from the frames. Got drunk THAT night as well… and agreed to work a shift the next day even though I haven’t for five months and possibly should/could have said no in order to enjoy my freedom having FINISHED FOR THE YEAR….!!!
What next? oh yes, so woke up the next day definitely too early definitely hungover. Realised I had henna on my arm from the weekend so had to go into town and buy a long-sleeved shirt - making napping impossible.
Worked 5-11 feeling somewhat high on exhaustion.
And then today. Today I set my alarm for 8.30am thinking it would be nice to get some stuff done. Maybe do some baking, clean the house, paint a painting for an EXHIBITION I’ve agreed to tomorrow. Have I gone MAD?
So I guess that is my main stress. The art group are at start the bus now installing and I am in bed like a sick little bunny. I had no plan to do that show until like sunday or something.
FRIDAY. I am meant to drive to Plymouth again to go WORK at a festival.
I am literally dying right now.
and I have no money.
