     I might make myself a new list of goals to keep myself busy. Perhaps some academic stuff to prevent my brain from turning to mush.  I definitely want to apply for a MSc next year so in the meantime, I've shortlisted some universities. I do believe that I'm more capable than I give myself credit for, I just have a really bad habit of getting distracted and rushing, which means making silly mistakes. I also need to get into the habit of asking for help when I need it. It's one of my biggest downfalls but I'm working on it. Here's to bigger and better things!

    Feeling hopeful

    @Salix_alba_2019   You can do it! 
    Have you tried making lists? they can help prevent rushing and getting distracted :) Lists and lo-fi was how I got through uni 

    Good Luck!

They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be.

    Feeling very child and relaxed. 

    Even though I didn't get the support I really needed I did a rain visualisation excersise during SC. I feel mor regulated than earlier and I hope it stays this way. I'm unsure of what to watch, maybe se something that isn't too long seeing as it's quite late.

    Hit a personal best by squatting 75kg (I'm about 50kg for perspective) which falls between the bronze and silver category for my commonwealth games training plan. (I fight u48s but sit about 50kg when I'm not competing)

    You know what's nice, seeing people smile.


    Today I called up the guy I was talking to and although the conversation was brief, I couldn't help but notice the great big grin on his face. When we're in each other's company it's like all the worries and sadness goes away.

    Maybe that's my gift, making people happy whilst feeling accepted :)
