2. Good session today, although it got pretty heavy with about 5 minutes left, which seems to happen more and more. As far as my anxiety issues go, I'm in the roughest part of the process, which is basically calling for exposure exposure exposure.
3. This might sound a little wierd, but there's been some wierd serendipity/synchronicity with me and my therapy lately. At my last session, my doc gave me a bit of homework where I have to take an extended walk and monitor my anxiety levels throughout. As it happens, that very day was the same day as the gigantic steam pipe explosion, and so I was FORCED to take an extended walk - for the next 3 days, actually. Anyway, after today's session, I happened to run into an old friend of mine from a summer camp I used to go to, and we've agreed to meet up for lunch/drinks in the near future. I don't necessarily want to read into these sorts of coincidences too much, but, I mean, when life gives you these sorts of opportunities, you sorta have to take 'em.
4. And speaking of which, this weekend is Lollapalooza in Chicago. That's about 1000x more anxiety exposure than I'm prepared for, but that's sorta the whole point - I have to stop being so "prepared" all the time.
5. Hot Fuzz on DVD today. There was a question as to whether I should buy it today, and if so, which format (regular / HD ), and if I were to go next-gen, what to do about a player (specifically, this or this). But you know what? I'm already neck-deep in debt because of the TV - I'm through spending gobs of money I don't have on this sort of shit. And I'm also through buying DVDs on their release date. We're getting "Zodiac" via Netflix today, which is a movie we both want to see, anyway - we can wait until tomorrow for Hot Fuzz, or even until next week.
P.S. - look for me on goodreads!
