Tuesday Feb 18th

Fucked up by not posting yesterday. Moving forward. I had an appointment with Kate this morning which went about as well as I could've hoped. She helped me identify some opportunities for me to shift my mindset when I start down a path of self degradation that will lead nowhere. I'm going to circle back to the blog post idea I had previously after I met with her today. It's something I'm committing to. I feel optimistic about the things I've picked up and am working hard to internalize them. I think the strategies we talked about can help me avoid...

Man I'm fucking tired. It's 8PM and I feel like I'm just now sitting down to relax after being out for about 7 hours today and still doing my morning gym routine. Came home, cooked dinner, cleaned up a bit. Now here I am. I finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep in the car while waiting for Melissa and one of the kids at Value Village. Excellent book. I'm going to read Elevation by Stephen King next. Looking forward to it. I want to try to get at least 1 more fiction book completed by the end of the...

I'm very pleased and excited and most...

Got back to the gym this morning and felt awful about it for a while, but then eventually felt better about it. My new plan is to listen to a full album on the treadmill, and that will determine my timing. I took in Every Time I Die - Gutter Phenomenon which was pleasant. It's almost 10AM and I'm once again stuck anxious and waiting wondering how to best pass the day since I'm a bit light on focus while waiting. This is a shitty place to reside in. I really just hope for an answer of any kind, but I...

So here we are, back at home. Unfortunately, still uncertain of my intern future. But that's ok. I'm trying to be less shitty to myself, and accepting uncertainty without diving into my own head to consider every negative aspect of myself and potential failing I've had along the way is a good thing to be mindful of. The last few days in Ottawa were great. Got to hang out with some friends, learn some cool ass shit, and continue my drive towards my goals. No ragrets. Oh, actually, my fucking footwear choice is a regret. My regular shoes are basically...
