    The Countdown Thread

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by flawed personality, Jun 6, 2019.

    I figured it might be nice to have a thread specifically for anyone who is counting down to something. It can be anything from a job interview, publishing date, anniversary, holiday, birthday, due date, wedding etc. Whatever you're counting down towards. Preferably happy things, but maybe the occasional 'I can't wait till it's over' thing too. :)

    I will start with:

    My 15 months of therapy (DBT). That starts in 12 days.

    I also have my next trip to AZ, which is in 201 days. :D

    I'm counting down the days until I can return to Colombia. (Or should that be leave the UK). The Latin American culture/lifestyle stole my soul a few years back.

    I'm kinda counting the days until I'm free to return to the UK. I'm in DBT for the next 15 months first though.

    I don't want to hijack your nice new thread with what is essentially a chat but where are you now and from originally?

    I'm a Londoner originally. Been living in Ireland since early 2016.

    I've got a new short story coming out this fall in one of the oldest literary journals. I don't have an exact publication date, but I am looking forward to it and having a little more money in my pocket.

    Counting today, in 4 days, I'm handing in my short film! :D (It's a school project thing. First year: completed)! I've already edited and color graded my movie and today's shootings where merely some supplementally shots. Some more computer stuff and it's ready to go! I spat blood to make this happen on time (I was the screenwriter, the director, the director of photography, the cameraman, the director's assistant, the casting manager, location, lights, editor... the jack of all crews actually). Nonetheless, it was an awesome experience and I've taken valuable lessons out of it. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was a mess, it was bliss. For the first time I really know that this is what I want to keep on doing. Maybe I'm not being objective upon the outcome I've produced, but I have to admit that I like it and this is quite ground-breaking for me, because I've never liked so much anything I've made. I believe that my next movie is going to be so much better with all the things that I've learned. I feel soooo relieved and pumped up. Soon, I will rest... and maybe go for a swim as well. :D

    Are you going to tube it? Can we see it?

    I'm counting days/weeks/whatevers to see Malisky's film.

    28 weeks until I fly to AZ! :cheerleader:
    I can not wait to get on the plane. I'm not a big fan of flying, but when the prize is so great, how could I not look forward to it? :love:

    Have you had any form of CBT before?

    I'm not sure. I did attend a group therapy when I was in England years ago, but I'm not sure what that was classed as. I've seen psychotherapists a couple of times too.

    Well, you have nothing to worry about. One of the core concepts of DBT is the counsellor/patient relationship and ensuring that the sessions are conducted with an ‘ally’ mentality.

    (Vanilla CBT I’m not personally on board with in the slightest but that’s for another thread)

    All the best for your sessions!
