It’s Project Club Time!

Well, back to the grind. Having my surgery and vacation one right after the other really screwed up the routine I had going, so my project this week is to get back on track with writing and working out every day. And I still need to go grocery shopping.

    My projects this week are to apply to at least one new job daily and to complete my citizenship application. Ugh I’ve really been slacking…

    There’s a bunch of stuff I want to get done before I go to Toronto and oops now I only have three days to do it! Mostly I want to finish at least one of the songs I promised as rewards for people who donated to me and also I want to clean my apartment. I’ll have a few days when I get back before my surgery but I don’t want to leave all the preparations until the last minute (though knowing me I probably will).

    Crumbs, I need to go grocery shopping too. You guys, there are these good yogurt pops called Yasso. Have you seen them? Check your ice cream aisle. They are 100 calories, which is a bonus if (like me) you are trying to become fit without doing any exercise, and they are tasty. They come in flavors. Cookie Dough is the best so far.

    It’s cooling down which means that running might become more appealing, so I am going to go for a run tonight, Saturday, and Sunday. My friends have finally settled on a date (early October) for our annual mix CD drop party, which I host, but I also organize the CDs and put the songs in order, so I need to give that some more attention. We’ve got two mixes this year–regular songs and showtuuuuuuuunes!

    The next couple of weeks are going to be very busy – usual day to day projects, family in from out of town, work – and right now, the Xanax is no match for my anxiety, so of course, I’ve been sick to my stomach. So my only goal is to try and calm myself down and not feel sick.

    It’s hard enough to have an anxiety disorder, but when it causes physical side effects, I have a much more difficult time dealing with it. I’m grateful for the good things in my life, but today is one of those days where I feel kind of hopeless and frustrated. Especially because I was feeling a little more confident about pushing myself out of my comfort zone. The whole “one step forward, two steps back” seems pretty on point right now.

    Since this rant was kind of a downer, here’s a happy gif to counter that:

      One of our students spoke yesterday about her experience with anxiety, and it was so amazing, if only because she was so upfront about her struggles in front of the faculty and staff of the college and all of her peers. So thank you, too, for being open about your anxiety with us! We’ve got your back, even if we’re far away!

        Thanks!! When I was in an outpatient program a couple of years ago, it made me so sad that people did not have a support system or were embarrassed about their disorders. I’m lucky to have family, coworkers, and friends (both IRL and internet) that I can talk to.

        It’s a constant struggle, but for some reason, I’m totally fine with opening up about it. I wish I didn’t have to deal with it, but I’m definitely not ashamed or embarrassed about it.

        I appreciate the support 🙂

    Hi everyone! I’m in LA visiting my sis and my Packy! Woohoo!! We’re going to the Magic Castle tomorrow night because we’re nerds. And we have tickets to Hamilton Sunday night!

    My temp job ends tomorrow, which is a relief. The job was available to apply for on a permanent basis, but it’s both too boring and too stressful for what it pays. There are also a few aspects to it that I know would drive me crazy if I worked here long-term, especially how badly the workstation is set up. Holy carpal tunnel syndrome!

    I’m also really looking forward to getting back into my personal projects which have been languishing for several weeks. Although I did manage to make plum wine from the plums from my tree, and I mostly kept up on regular chores.

    My first two things on the agenda are to finally upholster that stupid chair and also apply for the several thousand dollars of insurance money the state of California is holding for me. It’s ridiculous how complicated retrieving the money is. Apparently I have to send in copies of my parents’ death certificates, and it’s like, clearly the government knows they’re dead if it’s holding a life insurance payment for me.
