Back in October I said that I would be writing “soon” about the new direction that my education is taking me. “Soon” turned out to be nearly eight months, but I am back. 2020 was a hell of a year. I lost five friends of more than 20 years, three family members (two on the… Read More #613 – Is It Soon Yet?
I have written you only once since January 2019, and that was back in March of this year to discuss academic changes that I was in the process of making. There have been a LOT of other changes since post #610. This is going to be a hastily thrown together post that’s essentially a collection… Read More #612 – New Website, New Me
I haven’t written in some time, not because I didn’t want to, but because I couldn’t. The subject of this blog post was something I needed to tell family first before putting it out publicly, and now that certain people know, I can write. Regular readers of this blog know that for the past two… Read More #611 – Crash & Burn/Phoenix
Usually around this time of night I feel isolated and alone. Tonight it’s a little worse. I feel like I’ve been burning bridges left and right and that I’m isolated because of my own actions, so I feel like I can’t reach out to anyone because there’s no one left to reach out to. My… Read More #610 – Burnt Bridges
This one is going to be short, but emotional. First off, let me say that due to circumstances beyond my control I wasn’t able to get a head start on the things I wrote about yesterday, although I did manage to get other things that were more pressing done. So there’s not that much to… Read More #609 – Slow Start, Heavy Heart
I haven’t written in my blog for almost 14 months. Life has been just busy enough to sustain me over that time, but as I’m getting closer to applying to my degree program I’m finding myself with more and more free time as the things I can do in preparation become fewer and fewer, and… Read More #608 – Relapse
Regular readers of my blog – well, the ones I had before I took most of last year off – know that I use my blog as a coping mechanism whenever my mental illnesses get rough. I’d guess that most of my posts here for the first year and change I was writing were very… Read More #607 – Reaching Out
First off, hi there, I’m Steven, and this is my blog. I haven’t written in it for most of 2018. I’ve been busy with school and life, and honestly, my therapeutic need for writing on a regular basis is mostly in remission. When I started this blog I was pretty much house-bound because of anxiety.… Read More #606 – The Embarrassing Epiphany
Once again, I find myself in the unfortunate position of catching you up on a couple months’ worth of activities instead of writing a little bit as I go through the days and weeks. This entry will be shorter than my last one, since there’s really not that much to report on, outside of school.… Read More #605 – I Survived
So hey there, how are you doing? Been a while, hasn’t it? I have over two months to catch you up on, and that has been a hectic time. My apologies for disappearing, but there have been reasons. The last time I wrote to you, I was just getting ready to start the spring semester… Read More #604 – Been a While, Hasn’t It?
