Ups and Downs

Went to 27Dinner last night ... you know, this week is turning out to be as busy as my last one, with only tonight off! Sheesh, I swear it was practically empty like a minute ago.

Anyway, back to last night. I arrived thinking it was awfully naive of them to schedule a 120-person event in Parkhurst (you know, the place with no discernible parking so everyone just takes over all the dead-end side roads), but the venue was fabulous. I absolutely adore what the Vitamin Water pop-up store has done! We started the evening with Vitamin Water cocktails (awesome!) and some very very yummy food and settled in on bean-bags "networking" (haha!). I did meet some new people and get to know some colleagues a little better last night tho, so I suppose it actually was networking :)

I must say that after last night's speaker, I am now super keen to get to the Tech4Africa conference! Although it seems unlikely a) because of cost and b) because I'll hopefully be in Peru when it's on :)

So yeah, was lovely to see / meet @saulkza, @Jenty, @Exmi, @Christian_Simba, @mach1prodigy and @shahil.

In other news I am in a very weird place emotionally / mentally. I'm more than disconnected from my family right now, I don't quite know how it happened but I went from speaking to my Mom at least every 2nd day to now barely speaking once a week. I don't know how to fix it, even when we do talk it feels empty :( And my brain is on a serious wear down my self-esteem mission :P Everything about life just seems a little overwhelming at the moment altho, somehow, at the same time everything also seems a little mundane :P Contradictory, much? Spot the single girl at the hormone party :P Sigh, I need something sparkly to pop into my life and make for some excitement. Some excitement that last longer than 40seconds. Sigh. Even planning Peru is not the pick-me-up I was hoping for. So yeah. I'm crazy, I know :P
