In the last few years I always needed to lie down for a bit several times a day, which is obviously bad for productivity. Today I wasn't exhausted once and I managed to get a satisfying amount of stuff done! Hopfully this will last.

I was so far behind on the Heroes rewatch that I've given up on it now. I just don't have the time. :o/

A rewatch for which I do have a bit of time is Sherlock. I'm even well on the way to finishing it by the time the new season starts! (I'll let you know if I just jinxed it.)

Why do I always put so many things on my to-do list?! Watching the Fantastic Beasts movie with my mom and sister is set for Monday. I really wanted to finish rereading the script (and with that my review of it) before I go see the movie. Probably not gonna happen *sigh*.

Yay, Rogue One situation is sorted, though not the way I intended. More later.

And speaking of Star Wars: Carrie Fisher! ;___;
I don't know if I can watch Episode VIII in cinema now - maybe you remember how uncomfortable I am with crying in public.

To me loyalty used to be only a good thing, I didn't consider that something could be bad about it. But then Trump won the election and started picking people for his cabinet just because they had stuck with him. So now that I connect it with cronyism, loyalty has turned into a dirty word.

In closely related news, I encountered a beautiful word today: Kakistocracy - a state or country run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.

And speaking of politics: I'm so fucking glad that Austrians didn't choose the Neonazi as their next president! It's a tiny ray of hope shining through the clouds of the far right taking over all over the place.

My mom and I were skyping with my sister yesterday and she told us she's coming home for Christmas! She'll even stay long enough to celebrate her 30th birthday.

I'm so dissatisfied with the icons I made for the latest [livejournal.com profile] dwstills challenge that I'm improving them. I need to remember to upload the updated ones before I post them on my icon journal. I want to overwrite the old ones, so I can't upload them right now, because voting is already underway.

After my icon post was posted to the DW comm, it became the non-Cyrillic top daily post for an hour (I got a notification that my entry was referenced in a post). Just shows how abandoned LJ has became that a post of mine could be a top post.

Bed times haven't improved. I went to bed at night and slept, but only woke up shortly after 7pm. Felt the sort of dizzy that means I'm not really awake and went to bed again at 10pm or so. Didn't manage more than a nap and got up again at 5am. After being productive, I went to bed around 9am. Was awoken at noon and went to my mom, we continuined working a big project which we'll hopefully manage to finish soon, because it's supposed to be a Christmas present. Went to bed at 1:30am and woke up 2 hours later.

Since I couldn't sleep anyway, I finally continued reading the Fantastic Beasts screenplay.

Went back to sleep before it got light. Finally woke up at 18:somthing pm. *frustrated sigh*

The night before last I made icons for [livejournal.com profile] dwstills under time pressure. Gah, they were so terribly uncreative. Quality-wise they turned out fine, but the lack of creativity frustrates me.

Speaking of icons: The icon post I submitted to [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho nearly a month ago was finally posted!

Speaking of last month: Back then I had pretty great, normal bed times, but they were ruined when I watched the results of the US election all night. They got more and more out of hand. Yesterday I once again went to bed at 8am. When I woke up in the late afternoon, I decided to sleep as long as possible. Woke up shortly before 1am. Let's see if this helps me get back to better bed times.

Two days ago the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay arrived. Let's see if I like it. I haven't read far enough to determine it yet.

I just gave her salmon and she comes and eats from the tuna I want to make into a salad!
