The possible happiness continues

As Bakerypenguin pointed out, I am now having normal reactions.  When things are good, I am able to feel good.

Trivia is going well.  I hope to get more people out and establish myself as a good place for trivia, and I think that will happen once people catch on.  At the moment the first two nights have been won by the owner of the bar and some of his friends. I wondered briefly if he just wants to have his own trivia night where he and his friends can carry on all they like.

I am currently in Adelaide, in the office of the Minister for Sport.  He will be joining me tomorrow as I have another go at doing 12 hours of pushups.  His office has been helpful with the media and I've done three interviews already, and more live interviews on radio have been lined up for tomorrow.  The Lord Mayor's office has allocated a place for me in Rundle Mall and the whole town seems pretty supportive.  I'm actually going to be sleeping on the minister's sofa tonight, and he send his ministerial car to pick me up from the airport and to take me around town.

Work? Nothing has changed really. Plenty of leads but no actual work.  It may be difficult to get something before the end of the financial year in the public service, but I've also applied for a full time permanent job doing research for a public affairs firm.  No response yet, but it sounds like a good prospect and I took care to put together a good application.  It would be a very different job to most of the others I've looked at.  It would not be a contract, and it would not come with the public service culture.

For now, my job is trading, trivia, and occasionally doing training sessions.  That's fine for me.  I'm getting used to the three "T"s.  Not sure what the prognosis is long term.

I traded some shares in VMG for some options in VMG which will give me a lot more exposure to the potential upside if the price goes up.  I also piled some money into capital raisings for AKK and ALK, and I am willing to cash in some of my stocks if the situation suits.  I've also been picking up DTE on the drops with an eye to unloading it on rebounds.

Feeling good - and realising that it's happening more and more - is such an amazing feeling, isn't it?

We're coming to trivia again ths coming Monday, along with a few of J's workmates.

Good luck with the push ups - I'll be watching Facebook and the Twitter feed! xox

Trivia this week has been moved to 7:00pm now that the clocks have changed, so make sure you notify everyone.

Even the bad things don't bother me like they used to. It is good.

Really excited about your round of push-ups! Us Stateside folk are rooting for you!

It is really great to hear that you are settling into the new lifestyle and that you're feeling better overall. It will always be an uphill battle, but every little step is a major victory.

I got some good coverage and plenty of encouragement.

As for the lifestyle, it's a learning process, specifically learning to be ok with things.
