I’m Not Just A Shy Introvert, I Have Social Anxiety

Fields in India

I’m not just shy, I have social anxiety.

I’m not an introvert, I have social anxiety.

If you know me you think of me as “introverted”, “shy”, “quiet”. It’s just my personality, right? And you like me anyway. The truth is, I live with a constant inner struggle. I’m not just naturally shy and quiet. It’s a fricking battle inside me. Continue reading “I’m Not Just A Shy Introvert, I Have Social Anxiety”

Weekly Small Pleasures #103

I would say it was a pretty good week. No issues. None that I remember at least, except for a couple nights of bad sleep and annoying mosquitoes.

It’s already mid-October, the month is going fast. Here are some things that made me happy this week: Continue reading “Weekly Small Pleasures #103”

Weekly Small Pleasures #102

I think this was a pretty good week. Probably the best one since we moved here over a month ago, because it’s been rough. I was in pain often (hip problems), something’s always gotta be going on, but here are a few things that made my week good: Continue reading “Weekly Small Pleasures #102”

We Moved! (Again) Guess To Where?

The last couple of weeks were hectic because we were preparing for a cross-states move and actually moving. We packed and moved everything by ourselves, carried heavy boxes up and down stairs a million times, drove for 3 days straight (pretty much), and moved into a completely new environment. I’m still recovering.

Vincent (Van Gato), our cat, came along. But we’re still in transition. We still have to find a place to get settled down.  Continue reading “We Moved! (Again) Guess To Where?”

This week was HECTIC. Unfortunately, I can’t say much about it because the blog post about it is coming tomorrow but it involved a big move. The whole week consisted of it and it kinda didn’t include many pleasures, let’s see what I can think of… Continue reading “Weekly Small Pleasures #97”

I Suck At Goodbyes… Like, REALLY Suck At Them

I was thinking this morning while I was eating my breakfast at the dining table by myself. A scrambled egg with salsa verde, avocado, one tortilla, and a side of a gluten-free frozen waffle (actually toasted not frozen) half with butter and half with almond butter and honey. That’s how weird I am but that is not the topic of this post.

I was thinking about goodbyes. I was thinking about the fact that we’re moving again… darn, I was planning on making a post for breaking the news, but now I’ve said it. But I won’t tell you the details yet; I will write a post about it later, in a week or two when we’ve settled down. Continue reading “I Suck At Goodbyes… Like, REALLY Suck At Them”

Current Observations #2

Almost 2 years ago I blogged about my current life observations in list form, inspired by others bloggers who did the same. I thought I’d give it a go again. Continue reading “Current Observations #2”

Monthly Best of: July 2016

monthlybestjuly

Holy sh*t what a month. Just me? I’m still kinda in shock about it all. Still dealing with aftermath, still dealing with new changes, still dealing with new feelings, new thoughts. Still wondering, still waiting. Still hoping, still trying to fix things, still trying to hold on, still not forgetting, still learning. I’m exhausted just typing and thinking about it.

Weekly Small Pleasures #93

Things have calmed down a bit but there’s still rough days, things flare up, things are not really back to normal nor will they ever go back to normal. It’s the “new normal”, I guess, that I have to adjust to. It won’t be over until it is, who knows when. It’s just something I have to deal with every day now. It’s not something I can just forget or ignore or pretend. It’s there. And the wait is there.

Wow, this doesn’t make any sense to 99.9% of you I know. I won’t ramble today, at least no more than I already did. Here are some of my small pleasures of the week: Continue reading “Weekly Small Pleasures #93”
