Whatever you do, don’t look down….

The thing about heights? Just don’t look down. That’s how it is with me, anyway.

That’s also what most of my nightmares are made of – falling from a great height, while clinging to some very, VERY high AND shaky structure (sometimes a building, sometimes a tree, sometimes a pole of sorts – but always, they are horribly high and they are terribly shaky).

I still have these dreams, but not as often.

Strangely enough, I’m always tempted to jump whenever I look out the window of a high-rise building.

Once again – so much work, so little time.

I’ve to keep reminding myself to stay focused and prioritise or I’ll surely go into a full-blown panic attack. All the more pity because I know I CAN do this job, and do it well.

But it wouldn’t matter either way in more than a week’s time. Strange how the job lead came about. I thought it was a little bird that told. Or maybe the universe heard my rants, after an incident which made me reassess if I wanted to waste my newfound skills on less…. ‘worthy’ (???) pursuits.

Fingers crossed. (Not eyes, for sure.)
