College & depression

Ah, yes. College. That time in our lives that's full of education, drinking with new friends, & overall excitement. When freshly graduated 18-year-olds venture out into the real world with Mom & Dad proudly looking on. What a time, right? Yeah, not for me. I know I've mentioned this at some point before but my …

B+s, not A+s

One of the greatest pieces of advice I've heard lately has stayed with me for almost a month now. But first, a little background: Being a recovering perfectionist, I've known to struggle with doing everything & doing it all by myself with no errors. Asking for help was viewed as weakness & my high & …

August Goals

I think I'm gonna do these monthly goals until I hit one year. Good little motivator, right? – A snapshot – PHYSICAL: 5 → 6 FINANCIAL: 6 → 7 – The details – PHYSICAL: 5 I would say I'm pretty much maintaining at this point. I've been absolutely exhausted for the past few weeks (because …

Common sense

I'm not sure what I want to talk to you about today so I'm just gonna get whatever's on my mind at the moment out. Don't get me wrong - I have a list on my desk of various topics I need to tell you & work through. But, as you know, everything's been a …

Coasting

I'm currently sitting on my bed. I went to Temple, ran to Target, & came home. I changed my clothes, put on soothing music, & sat down. And the whole time, I'm trying to not cry. "What's going on?" My heart hurts. I'm not ready to open everything up & give you all the details. …

Logical & emotional

Last time I met with Dr. G, she was telling me to work on thinking with both my logical side & my emotional side. When I'm all logical, I'm cold to what my emotions are trying to teach me. When I'm all emotional, I can't see the truth due to the fog. "Ideally, you want …

Girl, bye

Well, this sucks. Remember yesterday how I was honest & direct with what I need? Friend #1 & #2 have been damn near silent all day. Like maybe one or two lines of text. That's it. But that's nothing compared to Friend #3. I talked to them briefly on the phone & they sound happy. …

July Goals

Ten days in & I'm just now doing this. Whoops. – A snapshot – PHYSICAL: 5 → 6 FINANCIAL: 6 → 7 – The details – PHYSICAL: 5 I've recently had a wakeup call about my physical health. Dr. G pretty much confirmed it for me as well. Being all or nothing, I've dived in …
