It’s been awhile since we chatted, so let’s catch up on some stuff.
I started school, joined a coworking/networking space to maybe make some friends (virtual for now, but someday in real life), bought a new car, I’m job hunting, making more of an effort to plan things (like projects and study time), and spending less time doom-scrolling on social media. That part is a little easier for me now that there’s a new administration, but shit is still pretty fucked. There was also plenty of doom in the run up to this inauguration, but I got very in my feelings about that as it was happening and since it does exactly nothing for my mental health, I try to keep it to a minimum. Oh, and I’m actively working on therapy and methods for coping with stress.
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year, partly because I’m already actively doing the things I’d resolve to do (writing every day, changing my eating habits, working on finishing my degree), and partly because I’m usually just lying to myself (I know I’m never going to go to the gym every damn day, I don’t know why I even try). For now I’m happy with the changes I’ve made and actually stuck with.
So… how are you?
