it’s funny that yeah, people like me can literally get stressed over being prepared and well planned. Trying to manage one friend group I’m in, with a couple of people like me and a couple of super planners/spreadsheet lovers is a tricky thing

this is in theory the longest planning of all. ‘lifelong’

In the short term, I’ve spent this year with my birthday (in 5 days…) as the date which I’m going to commit properly to getting healther, shaking the pandemic habits etc.

Beyond that, only vague ideas of what I’d like to achieve in the next year… though with one of those things potentially being a kid I guess you’d consider that a longer term thing.

Edit: not sure if you ‘achieve’ a kid but you know

Now until November: trying to navigate the archaic processes of buying a flat and then arranging to move into it
November: moving, going back to the office
December: Christmas
After that: ???

There’s good money in contracting. May be the sensible option
