day 16: had a job interview -- fingers crossed!! 😥
day 14: I'm the worst at updating this
- yoga && I got accepted to my second dream school
day 11: me - I'm going to make my life aesthetic look like a Pinterest mood board
also me - *watches the good wife all day*
day 9: I've already been in this for 10 days (I started counting from 0)??? wow I feel slightly less couch potatoish
I walked around a bunch today and submitted my C.V. to about 10 places in person and 10 more online
let's hope something sticks!! more to come tomorrow
I also halved my wardrobe and purged a bunch of clothes and I feel so zen about it tbh
I would like to make a list of things I ought to not feel bad about anymore, but I feel like that could get real self-hatey real quick and methinks that's a little more of a #MajorTestOfStrength whereas I'm content sitting in the #MildTestOfStrength kiddie pool.
...I'm looking at you, exercise to-do list. 😑
day 2: no cleaning today but I would say it was still successful
🧐 Skyped a prospective supervisor for the first time;
🐌 left my house for the first time in weeks;
☕ got coffee with a friend;
🚶♀️ and forgot where I parked the car, BUT ended up getting a bunch of steps in from the 12 blocks I trudged through in the snow
🤬 successful... but the parking ticket was probably not worth the jaunt
I would also like to add that an extra motivating factor is that I keep finding old flash drives, external drives, and even paper-filled binders with old memories. I even found some video messages to my future self!
Crazy to think about where I was then and where I am now.
day 1: I graduated from a box to a storage room! Today I began the great #purge by starting to throw away a lifetime's worth of useless junk.
I piled it all into my living room and then started sorting all the different types of trash for me to toss or recycle.
It is slow and painful, and it is probably going to get worse before it gets better, but if that ain't a metaphor for something I don't know what is!
