Learning to Live

I apologize for not sticking to my usual post schedule. I'm in a very strange mental/emotional place. I'm thinking a lot about my future; about where I want to go and what I need to do to get there, which path would be right for me. I know it's necessary, but it's still overwhelming to … Continue reading Learning to Live

I’m angry.

Something happened after church on Sunday night that made me incredibly angry. And, I don't mean I was irritated or annoyed; I mean I was seething. I contemplated calling Matt and asking if I could crash on his couch so I could not have to sleep at home but could still get to class on … Continue reading I’m angry.

What would it be? One-third life crisis?

It's not a food post, but whatever. I'm having a lot of feelings right now and it's my blog and I'll do what I want! I'm writing this for queue at just after 5:30 on Thursday. So, when I say "today" I really mean "yesterday," but that feels really weird to write, right now. Today, … Continue reading What would it be? One-third life crisis?

Mercury Retrograde and Social Depression

I’m chalking the negative feelings I’m having towards some friends up to Mercury Retrograde and the fuckery it’s conducting with communication. I don’t usually “feel” Mercury Retrograde, because communication and decision making is always a nightmare for me (thanks, anxiety), but I’m feeling this one, I think. I’m just really sick of some of the … Continue reading Mercury Retrograde and Social Depression

Google Maps Can Rot in Hell

I'm trying really hard not to let stress get me down. With school, that can be tough, because my biology class is so labor intensive. I hardly have time to breathe, let alone do anything else. Spring Break is coming up, though. Just three more weeks of classes and then one glorious week off. I'm … Continue reading Google Maps Can Rot in Hell

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

If missing my biology class didn't count as two absences today (the lecture and the lab), I wouldn't be leaving the apartment at all. As it stands, I intend to skip the lab. I just don't feel up to it, today (and not just because I think I'm coming down with a cold). I wish … Continue reading Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Overwhelmed

On Wednesday, I went to a Galentine's party with a girl I met at church, Alex. I forced myself to go because I'm trying very hard to meet new people and step out of my comfort zone. It was definitely out of my comfort zone. That's not to say it wasn't fun, it just wasn't … Continue reading Overwhelmed

Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

I'm really glad I started attending church. I've met so many nice people--everyone is always coming up and introducing themselves to me. I've even made a new friend! A lovely girl I'll be referring to as "Alex" on this blog (remember, I don't use people's real names). Alex invited me to a "Galentine's Day" party … Continue reading Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

Short and Sweet Mental Health Update

Last week was pretty good to me, in terms of my depression and anxiety not being total a-holes. Part of that, I think, is that school has kept me busy. I haven't really had time to dwell on the negative stuff. So, that's good! Yay! Except for one notable exception on Friday and Saturday. My … Continue reading Short and Sweet Mental Health Update
