Brief Update: Bad News (for me)/Good News (for people who like my blog)
Proper update later, but here’s a very rare personal post. Some of you may have noticed the lack of posting recently. It’s been because I’ve been working very hard for months, putting in a substantial amount of overtime, and I’ve also been feeling unwell for quite some time.
On Tuesday I went to the doctor and was told I have high blood pressure. Not “you’re going to have a heart attack tomorrow” blood pressure, but “you need to work *at most* three days a week for the next month and not do anything stressful, and that way you won’t wake up screaming at 2AM thinking your head will explode” high blood pressure. While normally I’m a workaholic, I’m also a workaholic who wants to live to see forty, so I’m following the doctor’s advice.
Since I find writing about the most relaxing thing there is to do, and since I’ve got an enforced break from work, you can expect a *lot* of blog posts over the next few weeks – once I feel better enough that I can look at a screen for long periods of time, anyway…
