It's almost one in the morning, but I napped (crashed, hard) when I got home from school around 6pm today, so I'm pretty damn awake at the moment. That's unfortunate because there's not a whole lot to be done this late at night that won't disturb my mother or downstairs neighbor. 3/16 Weeks of the … Continue reading College Witchery: Week Three!
Yesterday, I wrote the rough draft of my first essay for my English class. I printed out two hard copies and stuck them in my folder so I would be prepared for our peer review discussion in class. I was done. I was ready. I was proud of myself. Today, I crawled out of bed … Continue reading Sorry, I Can’t Come in Today. My Brain has the Flu.

Communicating … Continue reading Diary: Yesterday I Started School and Broke a Therapist

I have a list of things I wanted to get done today written in my planner, but I don’t think that’s happening. Instead, I’m eating popcorn … Continue reading Little Mental Illness Pick-Me-Ups
I've been doing things, which is very weird for me. They aren't big, life-changing things, but they are things all the same. I am expending energy where previously I lay in bed thinking about expending energy, then went to get another bowl of ice cream. I bought some tools to finish a project I've been … Continue reading Diary: Perfection is Boring, Anyway
I usually hate summer. The heat and all the kids being out of school, crowding the stores and parks and beaches. Seasonal depression (seasonal affective disorder) is this form of depression related to changes in the seasons. Usually, it happens in the fall and winter, so I've always joked that I have the opposite; I … Continue reading Diary: Summer Excitement
