thirtyfive: monday came too soon

Ideas never run out

On about Thursday last week my throat started to hurt. I just thought I had over done it and I’d be fine. Well by Saturday my throat was still hurting and I was beginning to feel like a cold was climbing into my body. Yesterday I spent most of the day in bed in the hope that the sleep along with cold remedy and just relaxing rather than trying to soldier on would help. Well it did to a certain point but then at 11:50 when I turned out the light to sleep – the sleep wouldn’t come. So 40 minutes later I picked up my phone to start blogging.

Why is it sometimes that the time you try and be good and have a decent level of sleep you’ve either ingested too much caffeine or your brain kicks in with all those awesome ideas as you try to go to sleep. Yesterday it was all about having too much sleep during the day. Clearly I’m suppose to soldier on a bit more before surrendering to my bed lol.

I got thinking at one point about what I would do job wise if anything was an option. Writing was the thing that came up but I don’t know how to make that a reality. I love the idea of doing research as part of my job. Researching information and collating data would be right up my street but how do I turn that into a job to pay the bills…….ideas please?!?

    Don’t know if it’s your sort of thing, either this or maybe something similar. One of my best friends worked as an assistant to an MP for several years, which involved a lot of research into issues raised by constituents’ correspondence, things his boss had to give a talk on, local issues etc. Upsides of the job were (a) getting to do research on all kinds of different topics; (b) having a “government” email address that made him look well important; (c) getting to go to the Houses of Parliament regularly and meet famous politicians; (d) sometimes actually feeling as though you had helped local people. Downsides were: (a) you were “not forced but strongly encouraged” to be a party member, attend conference and various party functions, go canvassing at election time; (b) keeping your job depends on your boss keeping his seat in Parliament, as constituency staff do not transfer to a new MP in the way that central government civil servants do.
