In Which I Received an Award

One Lovely Blog

I have, apparently, won this award. The deal is, in accepting this award, I have to award this to 15 other blogs. I don't follow 15 other blogs, so I'm stuck. This is kind of like a chain letter, I guess, and yes, I am breaking the chain. It's a nice thought though!

Thanks to Anna Walls for the award. You can check out her blog right here:

Anna is a fellow aspirant who has self-published one title, King by Right and Blood. I reviewed it a little while back. It's a great read for young adults.

My mood has increased dramatically since Wednesday, which was the lowest of lows that I had been in since High School. I figured there must be something missing from my diet, so I bought some zinc and vitamin B complex. It has helped. Also, the reappearance of sunlight gave me my vitamin D, and that is a known mood enhancer. Also, I get to sleep in tomorrow, which is a known mood enhancer also.

I think I was just burnt out. Too much editing. Too much training (I've been off it for three weeks, and jumping straight in to a four-night training spree was difficult on me. I must be getting older!). Too many demands on my time by too many people. You know, all the stuff that makes you want to curl into a ball under blankets and hide until it's all over.

However, I am better now, and that's what counts!

Today is, of course, French Friday. Which means I'll be continuing on with my French lessons. However, there is some important work of a secret nature which must be done beforehand. Thus, I will be late with my French.

Alright, I must go do this secret work. I bid you all a very fond farewell. I shall blog again Monday. Onward!

Now that you mention it, it is kinda like a chain letter. You can meet some really nice people and discover some really interesting blogs though - sometimes. Just another way of weaving a web of connections. Glad you're feeling a little better. My boss told me that many people in the more northern latitudes don't get enough sun and are therefore lacking in vitamin D. I take Centrum. I used to take them only in the summer for a little extra energy and then sleep all winter, unless I'm writing of course. Maybe I'll take them all year now. I know I'm getting older.

Thanks Anna. I did suffer from S.A.D. (Seasonal Affect Disorder) when I first moved here. I'm careful about my vitamin D intake... I've also upped my Zinc and vitamin B.

Hopefully something will work!

We need to Skype. Unfortunately, the flatmate has run off with the laptop, so it won't be until Friday night or later.
