Thoughtful. Sad. Nostalgic.

Given the eclecticness of my life at the moment I feel rather centred and content. As a 19 year old I could be doing so much more. I ought to be doing so much more.

Interesting to be involved in change and creation. I need to start up with theatre and production again, or at least paid writing. I can’t not be creating.

positivity, but not euphoria, is infiltrating my headspace in most aspects of my life. starting to be convinced of my own value which is a real frickin’ special feeling.

"… I didn’t actually know that I was depressed. I thought the dark staticky corners were part of who I was. It was the same way I felt before I put on my first pair of glasses at age 14 and suddenly realized that trees weren’t green blobs but intricate filigrees of thousands of individual leaves; I hadn’t known, before, that I couldn’t see the leaves, because I didn’t realize that seeing leaves was a possibility at all. And it wasn’t until I started using tools to counterbalance my depression that I even realized there was depression there to need counterbalancing. I had no idea that not everyone felt the gravitational pull of nothingness, the ongoing, slow-as-molasses feeling of melting down into a lump of clay."

Read it over.

Again.

Let those words resonate in your mind."

Kits & massive jumpers and bed and a working computer and a huge amount of chores ticked off? It’s been a good day.
