I decided to plan a trip. It's only been 7 months since my last one, which is nothing by my usual standards. It will be the first trip since I moved to the new apartment. Which apparently has ramped up my anxiety about it. The best thing about planning a trip as an exposure, is that you get to go do fun things! So it does at least balance off the anxiety a bit.
To continue on the theme of my last post, my new housing situation has really brought into clarity how little I do when I'm not working. It's especially noticeable when I compare myself to the busy busy busy culture all around me. I've actually found myself feeling a bit depressed about it. Luckily this is a problem with a fairly easy solution as well. It will require me to work on my social anxiety as well, but I can't really consider that a bad thing.
Hopefully all these exciting, new scary things will give some oomph to my blogging!
