Hanging out with people more frequently means getting outside of my head and focusing on other people’s concerns, and realizing that “we’re all in this together” is true, and escaping the UGH of Big Life Questions (all good things), but it also increases my anxiety a million times over, and when the Big Life Questions come back (as they always do) they hit me extra hard. School is about to start again. I think my strategy this semester is to aim for Cs and to finish all my work. I don’t think I’ve ever finished all my school work since like 2010, and I think I can do it this year if I just aim low. ♦
