Room Renovation: Phase One

I am currently in the process of renovating my bedroom and giving it a fresh new look. My goal is to have everything finished before University starts again in November.

Phase one has been taking out all the furniture and sanding the floor. For some strange reason the last time that I updated the look of my bedroom I decided to paint the floor white. Not only that I decided to paint the floor very thick. That was okay, until it came time to actually sanding it and the amount of time and effort that is involved in removing it.  :x

Mental Health Plan

I have created a Mental Health Plan so that I am able to make a commitment to monitor and improve my mental health.

Creating a mental health plan has been on my 30 Before 30 since July 2014 and I am glad that I have finally taken the time to create it. If you suffer from mental illness having a plan is a really good document to have. It can be used to monitor your current condition, provide information to professionals (if you want to share it) and allow you to list goals and activities that enable you to help yourself.

I created a custom document that is appropriate to me and could be used by other people who might want something to help them (it can be downloaded at the bottom of the entry). I have broken it into sections that focus on different areas. Such as personal information, carer or emergency contact, health care providers, medical information, current medications, triggers, personal goals, my commitment (where you can list activities you will do that can help you) and a declaration to sign and date.

Ring Obsession

I have a slight obsession with rings. Especially silver rings that are either in unique shapes or look like animals…

I recently went on a little bender with jewellery and purchased a number of items from Equip and eBay. Most of these items are rings, but I had to include a few necklaces and earrings to make it interesting. :P Prices ranged from $1 to $6 (AUD) after scouring the sale bin on Equip and finding bargains on eBay.

Let the ring magic begin (very image heavy).

Dear Internet

Dear Internet,

While you had not been working properly for the past twenty days it had been a challenge. I do apologise that I swore at you, called you names and generally fired some hate in your direction. However, it has been difficult as I realised how much I have become dependent on you (study, entertainment, social, creative, all the things). So, here are some of the changes I have had to make and things I have been doing to amuse myself without you.

Simplify

I made the decision that I wanted to simplify many of the online projects that I am running.

With my first week of Uni under my belt, I realised that I need to be able to dedicate as much time as I can to study. It doesn’t mean that I want to close every website I run, it just means a little shuffling and asking for help.

Giraffe Host
Giraffe Host has now been moved to a hosting page on my blog. The application form is closed at the moment, but I have no intention to stop hosting anyone.

Cup MB
Cup MB is still up and active and I have no intention to close it. I am just looking for 1/2 people that might be interested to help out as administrators, so that the load of running a message board can be shared.

blogmatter-300 Blog Matter
Although Blog Matter is not acting as I originally intended (comment exchange) it is a community for bloggers and I hope that one day I can turn it into the comment exchange that I had planned. Because a community can take a lot of work, both in moderating, promoting and fresh content, I would also like to find 1/2 people that might be interested to help out. Particularly in the area of sharing new content and blog posts.

If you are interested to help out at Cup or Blog Matter, contact me and let me know.

I also recently discovered that my contact form does not seem to have been sending messages. So if you did try and contact me recently via the contact form on my site, I did not receive it. :(
