Long Week

It has been a long work week. The last couple of days have been especially trying. I just got out of a very long bath - more than three hours long. I wanted to wash away the residue of the week.

I didn't get nearly as much done as I had hoped but that's just how it goes. Hopefully next week will be more productive.

I've got a lot on my mind these days and I guess it's making it even more difficult for me to concentrate. It's not the easiest thing in the world for me to begin with, so I don't need any more confusion.

I just read something recently that said people who take Ritalin - even those with normal brain function - have higher IQ scores. I will have to check the veracity of that, but I remember thinking it was a reputable source I was reading at the time. I've never taken Ritalin, although it - or something like it - has been suggested to me on more than one occasion. I'm just not a fan of messing with my brain chemistry unless absolutely necessary. Things like that have effects we cannot foresee and I'd just as soon not be sucking down stimulants - amphetamines - potentially addictive drugs.

Taking something that alters my brain chemistry is far too risky for me at this point. However, there are times I wish I could focus a bit more easily.

Well, I have some writing to do that needs to be sent to various spots, so I'd best get to it. If only I could figure out how to get paid for writing my blog.
