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
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
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)

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!
I'm better at social interaction than I would have guessed. As I mentioned previously, both of my classes are heavy on discussions, speaking, and interaction. This gives me more than a little bit of anxiety (I have chronic social anxiety, for those unaware). But, you probably wouldn't have guessed yesterday. I talked in class. I asked questions … Continue reading College Witchery: Yesterday was a Good Day
So, yesterday was my first day of on campus classes. Apparently, this is the semester of social interaction. The two classes I'm taking this semester are English (Critical Thinking & Intermediate Composition) and Communications (Interpersonal Communication). Now, of course, I expected there would be some social interaction in the communications course. I mean, it's communications. Communicating … Continue reading Diary: Yesterday I Started School and Broke a Therapist
