Month In Review: February 2016

Goodbye, February. You were an arbitrary selection of days, interspersed with different seasons. I mean, come on, going through a 50-degrees-Celsius range in one month, from -45 to 15… That’s a little ridiculous.

I didn’t have a good month, but that’s nothing to dwell on. Headcold. Emotional roller coaster. Discouragement. Onward to March.

This month in pictures:

For all my not-so-cute days, I have one or two days where I fell hella hellaaaa cute.

All the writing from the past 4 days. Thanks to #ResolveToWrite! When I write by hand, I hesitate less and the words flow more quickly and I taste the story more potently.

This month, I achieved:
This month, I was grateful for:
This month, I learned:

More about my triggers for my eating disorder and mental health. Seriously, figuring out what makes me want to do certain things feels so much better than being able to fight back. It’s like I have an advantage against myself.

This month, I got bored of:

University. But, hey, that’s standard for me. I’m bored easily when I don’t have reasonable challenges—and university right now, with my course selection, has no challenges at all. (Unless you consider “frustration” a challenge. I don’t.)

Next month, I’m looking forward to:
Next month, I’m going to make the positive change of:

Attending therapy weekly. I had to reschedule my appointment from last Friday (February 26) to this Friday (March 4), and thus only had one appointment in all of February. I think I’m starting to really feel some progress and learn more about myself, so I want to continue relying on my guide (AKA my counsellor).

Next month, I’m making the effort to:

Outline, plan, write, immerse myself, and make progress on THE PILGRIMAGE. Of all my novels, I feel this one has the most potential. I decided on a major change recently—removing a character entirely, in order to tighten up character arcs and thus plot—and have found excitement. Normally my writing has a small shadow of fear lingering, but this time? I’m less afraid. I have less expectations set upon myself. I’m enthusiastic.

If I had to write a book about this month, I would call it:

River Bottom Blues and Bubbles. I’ve been extremely emotional this month. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Format and some questions from “Achievement Unlocked: February 2016”

I hope you all had a decent short month. Also, can we all appreciate the Google Doodle for the leap day? Adorable. Bunnies are best.
