Dry November: Day 14

November 14, 2018

After fourteen days dry, I’m feeling suspiciously fantastic. It would be churlish not to give credit to my sobriety, though my diet and exercise have also been above average. I’ve been sleeping well and in a positive mood most days. As I’m not working, I’m also not subject to the physical constraints and psychological violence inflicted by certain offices. That’s not to say I haven’t been busy. Besides writing I have been applying for jobs, applying myself to figuring out what I’m doing next. It’s an awkward time to look for jobs in London as I’ll be leaving for California for Christmas, though I suppose it‘s not exactly prime hiring time anywhere. Even interviews seem not to have dampened my spirits, strangely enough. Maybe it takes two weeks dry to feel great, and I rarely got this far previously.
