This is not a brag
i’m 8 yrs out of hospital and for 2 months i will only have 15 days each month away from public organised activity completely.
i will be attending evening classes on play reading and discussion every other week. two different performance workshops - an evening and a morning. Travelling an hour for psychotherapy. and going away camping with my husband and also going to readings of my playwriting work.
for 2 weeks before the autumn term starts i want to do 2 weeks of workshops 3 sessions one week 5 the next
- all the workshops are based around theatre and performance skills
only one of these is for socially excluded / disability / addicts etc
i exercise or i like to … i don’t know how to do things by halfs but i’m a lot lazier than i want to be usually
I really am worried this term will be too much for me and i don’t want to back out of any of it.
i think with all this i might find myself sleeping on the couch the majority of my time off… or too wired and stressed to sleep
my mum doesn’t think she could keep it up herself ever - she says - i am sure she could have at my age
i cook for my husband and shop and do the laundry - i don’t do a lot of housework
earlier in the year i was doing occasional eve classes - once every 3 weeks
one performance group for disability and one therapy session an hour away (only for 6 weeks - i’m now going into long term therapy) i was going out on cycle rides 2 x a week with a friend from the group.
this was the kind of level i felt comfortable with
maybe i should drop the second performance group before i start it - it’s 10 weeks every week 7.15 - 9.15 lead by a guy i did a shiatsu course with as another student and feel quite intimidated by him
but i should get to know him next week or the week after in 6 of the workshops
i have done intensive things before - but not just before launching into a 4 day week.
it will be
mon every other week evening 2 h
tue every week evening 2h
thurs every week mornings 10 - 1
that is a lot isn’t it?
could you do that ?
do you do a lot more than that on a regular basis?
please let me know what you are doing nowadays?
