A lot of things have happened that I don’t want to write about here. It would either seem strangely insincere or take too long to talk about. All I feel comfortable with saying is that, surprisingly, things that make me feel good about being me and existing in general are happening, despite the overall situation (that is, my mom being in the hospital and me not being able to stay at my house). I’ve made plans with people I love but never see, and just the fact that I have that to look forward to makes me overwhelmingly happy. I talk to more and more people each day, trying to absorb as much as possible. I’m finding ways to beat the stagnation of my life, and for now, I’m just trying to focus on that.
