A challenge ends, and another begins.
I’ve really enjoyed participating in Blog Everyday in May, (BEDM!) I think I managed to post 27 out of 31 days, (although I did post twice one of the days to make up.) I’m not sure how many days I posted on my linkblog. However, I got to 37
posts, which is better than I’ve done in any month over the past year! This one was pretty hard for me, as I’ve been dealing with a lack of sleep. It isn’t my first blogging challenge though, and it definitely won’t be my last! I did a blog365 in 2011, and I have it on my 101 things in 1001 days list, (which I was supposed to start tomorrow, but is still in the process of being created!) to do it again next year.
May was a pretty busy month for me. I had to deal with the fallout from an incident that created a lot of drama here, (seriously the floor drama just wouldn’t go away!) that was left over from the end of March. Not only that, but when I finally could talk some sense into my mother, so that she would finally come to an agreeable position that me moving wasn’t going to cause her to have panic attacks and need antianxiety meds, I took the initial steps of preparing to move, (which, when you deal with federal and state agencies, includes doctors filling out forms incorrectly, so a whole lot of waiting is still going on!)
I think it was around the middle to the end of last month, (and the beginning of this one,) when my sleeping problems started to get worse. Of course, when I went to urgent care, well… she said taper off the antidepressants until I see my doctor on the 10th. It’s really hard to write much of anything coherently when you’ve stayed up for 3 nights straight, on the other hand, I’m glad to know I can still stay up for 3 nights straight!
I’ve also been working on Linkday, which is my 24 hour linkblogging challenge taking place on July 25th! This was initially something I thought of last year just for myself, to keep the summer tradition of staying up for 24 hours alive, and to challenge myself, to actually see if I could post 100 links in 24 hours. I’ve actually decided to open the challenge up to others who want to participate, (if anyone actually thinks they can do it!) Lol, I’m not actually sure I can get there yet, but if how many times I tweeted during tonight’s patriot act debates are any indication, I think I have a pretty good chance of making it!
Tomorrow I’ll start my challenges next month! I’m going to be participating in Audiomo, which is a month-long challenge in which you publish audio every day. I’m actually going to be doing this by using Meerkat and Katch, and uploading files to SndUP if they’ll take long files like that. If they won’t take the files, (because they might be too big,) I’ll upload them here, (which I plan on doing anyway for archival purposes.)I’m also going to be doing 30 in 30 30 days of excersise in 30 minutes. I have a treadmill here, and I haven’t used it much this past year. I had an extremely bad spell of headaches in January, and I took a fall down the stairs of the building shortly after that. I’m pretty sure I saw 30 in 30 on someone’s 101 in 1001 somewhere. I’m not sure where, but if you’re looking for 101 in 1001 inspiration, check out DayZeroProject I can’t exactly use the site to creat lists, that part is completely inaccessible. I’m going to be using Listography, to store my list, (and I’ll make a page and entries here as well.
