This valuable lesson, of course, is to be a hell of a lot more patient with myself than I have been. Being reduced to being stuck on my phone without the comfort of my Sony VAIO really bugged me. There's only so much you can do on a smartphone, and while I've become far more resourceful - going as far as to compose two quick Ultimate Random posts from said phone - it's still not always easy. Mobile devices and many websites don't get along, but through all my frustration I made a lot of things that shouldn't have worked work due to my persistence.
Therefore, I am retracting my previous promise not to write during these next three months. There just won't be any consistency to it. As I've previously noted, missing pages happen. Things get lost and forgotten. There are more important things at the moment than making sure I publish every single day. But for my mental health I do have to vent once in awhile. As a writer, you know when you have to write, so I'm just letting it flow when it does and not forcing like I often will, especially with series like Your MLB Top 8. I was getting stressed finding the 7th and 8th articles on a couple of the days that I did do it. It's something I plan to continue when I'm better, but for now, it's just too much extra stress. I still need to conserve my energy when and wherever I can.
So yeah, you probably won't ever see a "Page 6" per se. But I will be sure to chroncile my first return trip to Beth Israel at some point, so you'll get plenty of insight then. Just right now I'm too close to it to really give an accurate picture of what happened. I made it sound like I was simply a rat in a cage - which to some degree I was - but really I'm a celebrity on that Oncology floor. I think just too many people want a piece of me, and while it was flattering at first, goddamn it give me some alone time with Lyn! But hell, it's the Harvard teaching hospital. I'm just not feeling anymore interviews right now, not until I can feel a bit more composed and less frustrated with my inability to perform at the high level that I expect of my self. I just need to learn some more patience, and these past few days my mental state was not healthy. Fortunately, I seem to be bouncing back fairly quickly, so perhaps you'll hear a bit more from me in the near future.
