On the fluidity of Time

It's strange how human perception messes with time. I know this is common knowledge, but it has struck me recently just how strong the effect can be in extreme circumstances.

While I am functioning fairly well at the moment, the depression still has odd effects on me; making me more impulsive and impairing my judgment and, of course, the reason I came to write this post. As well as throwing my sleep patterns completely out (at the moment my waking hours are between approximately 11am-1pm and 3am-7am) I am finding that hours can seem to disappear somewhere without me doing anything to fill them. Like the 'time flies when you're having fun' effect, except that it occurs unpredictably whether I'm busy occupying my time or not.

Unsurprisingly, this can get rather frustrating at times. On occasion, however, it has proved to be a boon; making otherwise interminable periods of waiting flash past barely noticeable. It can be very handy in a waiting room of any description, for example. Which only goes to show that if you look hard enough, every cloud really does have a silver lining.

First gem I've mined from the Blogosphere

So, waiting for sleep to finally find me, I have been wandering the net aimlessly (as is my wont). In this case, I have been clicking on the 'Next Blog' button at the top of this page repeatedly. One would think that the results would be restricted to blogs in the same language as the previous one, but this is not so. After three or four indecipherable offerings in foreign languages, I came across this incredibly lucky find:


Some stunning artwork, and an obvious appreciation of a good book. While this is a good general blog, I am including the link for one of my friends in particular, who I am sure will appreciate the similar interests of the author.

Webmaster Woes

Running a website involves a lot of work behind the scenes that the users will never even notice. I've spent at least half an hour today (well, yesterday; it's now about 3:20 in the morning) just on copying and pasting html code to replicate the navigation menu. The past few hours have been spent finding and setting up a suitable mailing list service so I can let interested people know when new content is added to the site.

A lot of the work is simple but boring and time-consuming. Strangely enough this isn't always a bad thing, as it lets me achieve something constructive even in these wee insomniac hours of the morning when my brain has become sludge but still refuses to turn off...
