It most definitely has been a journey. Proud of how far I've come, and how hard I've worked to get here. But I'm not done! Join me -

Run, done! 

3 miles done! Met the run group and we did a 2 min run / 1 min walk ratio. Felt ok. Lungs and heart are working hard. I'll get back into shape though. Coffee time now!

I did a #Twitch stream attempting to explain Mastodon, how it's different from twitter, and my musings on the future of social media! Come check out of the recording here:

Cities in the UK have a much higher density of Greggs per area than rural areas - shown using the {biscale} #rstats package in this map for the "Two Colours" theme!

Slept in! Holy crap! Latest I've slept in, in so long...guess I needed it.

Run done! Now to have a coffee, warm up and then go get the bird on the smoker!

Meta, twitter 

Wil Wheaton was famously chased out of here four years ago. Curious if he would be allowed back today.

And I be like, "Don't make fun of my insomnia :("

OMG the #ThickTrunkTuesday hashtag is very wholesome I need to get my mind out of the gutter

me...journaling...mental health 

And then I beat myself up, and spiral...fear, skip, self hate...and on and on.

I have plenty of time to get back to running, but the window is beginning to close. I need to get back out there. I need to face these fears head on, and quiet the self hate.

I know what I need to do, I just need to get going. Hence the yelling at me post earlier.

me...journaling...mental health 

Have been journaling a lot lately, to try and work out what's going on with me mentally.

I've been depressed for the last year maybe, mainly because of work. Running is my outlet; with the hamstring injury and the pinched nerve thing, I haven't been able to run. Now that I can, I am terrified- of getting injured again, of falling, and of failing. I've been so scared I skip runs or make excuses to skip. When I have gone, I haven't streamed either.

Daily reminder that you're not a burden, your friends love and adore you, you matter, and your code isn't as bad as you think it is.

Going to yell at myself...
