Playing it loud helps.
I've also made some incredibly life changing decisions in the last few weeks which will start coming into effect after New Year is out of way. With Dragonmeet in (now under) two weeks and then the Christmas rush at work nothing is going to change before then in anycase.
I'm also intending to possibly go on a very big bender the weekend after Dragonmeet and also see if I can spend most of the week socialising. I've been in too much and a number of people have commented that I seem tense and need to destress. I am tending to agree with them, too many balls in the air at the moment.
Actually I might not last until the weekend after Dragonmeet. Depending how shattered I am I might join everyone at a pub that evening (although on past experience I'll be shattered, tired and wanting a shower, a comfy chair and just wanting a hug).
