Hurricane Ivan hit New York today. At 8 in the morning Danica and I were awoken by the sounds of lightning and thunder which seemed to be coming from right outside our ground-level apartment’s window.
It’s nighttime now but the whole day has been this dark. I’ve wanted to do laundry or write more or fiddle with my computer in some productive capacity but haven’t been able to do any of that. Instead, I’ve been in bed catching up on news feeds and wathching reruns of Law and Order and the Indiana Jones movies. Now it’s nearly 10 and I have a headache.
Oh well. I guess it’s not all that bad. I did a lot of reading and that was educational. Perhaps Ivan put a damper on my mood.
In an effort to enact something concrete (as opposed to something theoretical like all the day’s reading and movie watching) I’m putting together a publishing schedule which I hope to stick to concretely. This is obviously a good idea for any publication, formal or not, but it’s an especially good idea for me. That is to say, being bipolar, this sort of published schedule will help me actually stick to writing here, and writing here will motivate me to better the site, etc.
For the time being, here is the current working draft of my publishing schedule:
- Monday: main postings and writings directly related to Bipolar Disorder.
- Saturdays and/or Sundays – Geeky things and other hugely off-topic musings.
- Special Considerations given to postings regarding Site Updates.
In addition to the expected posts above, I’m also considering writing up a little about external resoures and other sites both personal and professional related to Bipolar Disorder. This should help keep me up to date with what’s going with BPD these days and over time would create a pretty good compilation of resources about Bipolar Disorder.
And in an effort to end on a positive note, the Kellog’s Frosted Mini-Wheats tagline made me laugh: “mmmmmm, fiber.” ;)
