Our Lives Matter

I’ve been very quiet regarding last week’s news about Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. What is there I can say that countless others are not already screaming from the tops of their lungs with incredible desperation? Of course, everyone knows that healthcare, and mental…

Mercury Retrograde and Social Depression

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…

Overwhelmed

On Wednesday, I went to a Galentine’s party with a girl I met at church, Alex. I forced myself to go because I’m trying very hard to meet new people and step out of my comfort zone. It was definitely out of my comfort…

Short and Sweet Mental Health Update

Last week was pretty good to me, in terms of my depression and anxiety not being total a-holes. Part of that, I think, is that school has kept me busy. I haven’t really had time to dwell on the negative stuff. So, that’s good!…

Just stupid little depression things.

Contrary to popular belief, I am trying very hard to be optimistic. In general, I’ve been doing okay. My sleep schedule is semi-on-track, which is good. I’m excited to start school next week (okay, “excited” is a strong word; I’m ready to start school…

Excuse me for a moment while I rant. Whenever someone finds out I have depression, suddenly it’s like they become a medical expert.

Mental Health Update

Happy New Year! Again. It’s the start of a new year, and it’s Monday, and even though I have non-resolutions instead of resolutions, one of my overall goals is to update this blog on a more concise schedule. Something like Blog-tober, but not daily…

Mental Health Update

Sorry, witches. This one’s kind of gloomy. Heed the content warning. Emotions behind the cut.

Diary: Tonight

Tonight is a night of anxious energy. That feeling of too much and not enough all at once wraps around me. I can feel it coil all the way down my spine, from the base of my head down to the tip of my…

Personal Collage Project (aka nightmare personal exposé presentation)

On Tuesday, I presented my “Personal Collage Project” for my communications class. It went as well as could be expected. I got the full fifty points, so I guess I nailed it. My voice shook a lot from nerves, but I think everyone thought…
