Getting Out of a Funk

I have started writing and deleted every post I've tried to write for tomorrow five times now. It's just another symptom of the funk that I have been in for a couple weeks now, I described it to one of my friends as "I feel like my excitement button is broken". I have gotten to … Continue reading Getting Out of a Funk

Living Alone Diaries: Being Prepared

If you regularly read this blog, then you will know that I have recently had a cold, the first time I've been sick since 2019.

Preparing for a Bleak Mid-Winter

Last winter was rough. I had never thought that I experienced seasonal affective disorder (SAD), but that was definitely exactly what I experienced, along with insane loneliness in lockdown after lockdown while living alone in a new town where I hadn't really made any friends yet, thanks to the lockdowns and work-from-home. It was the … Continue reading Preparing for a Bleak Mid-Winter

It's so funny how much difference a week can make in your mood, or even a day, I was nearly skipping home from the gym. It is great (although I am currently sobbing watching The Princess Diaries), so take from that what you will. And Happy New Taylor Swift day to all who observe. Social … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 10/21/22
