Dear Diary

January 15, 2014

All alone together.


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. ♦

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, totally gave me the push to post an essay on anxiety that I’ve been putting off on my blog. I’m trying to take a walk and call a friend as much as I can, since we are kind of secluded out here in the country.

    Caitlin always does such beautiful work. As a “word” person when it comes to expressing myself, it’s so cool to see someone else do it so differently

    To be honest, I don’t read the diaries very often. But you are all truly developing as people and i am happy for you all. I really think I should start a diary, but like most things, it’s hard to know where to start.
