day 16: had a job interview -- fingers crossed!! πŸ˜₯

day 15: I have to refrain from saying nothing happened

πŸ˜… bad habit for me and I end up blaming myself for being unproductive

I went to a workshop and had a celebratory meal with my supervisor

day 14: I'm the worst at updating this

- yoga && I got accepted to my second dream school

day 13: late update but yesterday was not exactly a non-zero day. idk the laze is getting me down but stagnation was expected

I did yoga at least πŸ˜₯

day 12: watched my partner's soccer match ⚽

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 10: who the fiddlesticks cares what I did today I got my first acceptance from a graduate program!!!!!!!!!!!!!

πŸ˜‚ 🀣 πŸ˜†

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
🀞

day 8: had a very productive and cool discussion with another prospective supervisor!

Also got to leave the house to see loved ones, and that was a highlight.

day 7: I decided that my home should not be the only thing to undergo a transformative purge. So today, for the first time in 2 years, I got a haircut.

day 6: had an excellent interview with another prospective supervisor πŸ¦‰

day 5: an industrious day of laundering 🧐

ok it was like 7 loads; it's hard to do laundry when you're a sad kid

day 3: another Skype call with a wonderful prospective supervisor, and something that isn't quite "cleaning" but more so "rearranging things so if I need to pee in the middle of the night I can do so without needing a plough"

oh no, it's only halfway through day 3 and I already want a reward day

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 whereas I'm content sitting in the kiddie pool.

...I'm looking at you, exercise to-do list. πŸ˜‘

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;

β˜• got coffee with a friend;

πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ 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.

...Definitely fatter.

😊

day 1: I graduated from a box to a storage room! Today I began the great 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!

🌢️ Sorry for the super spicy visual content

day 0: ugh... my house is a mess and ever since I graduated there's really no excuse anymore

today I picked a box out of the storage closet and separated the contents of the box into what to throw away and what to keep

🍻
