Since I moved at the beginning of May, I had a lot to adjust to this month. I’m not sure how well I did, though, since it’s now the end of the month and I’m only just feeling settled. It’s hard to get into a routine when it’s so different to the routines you’ve had for years in school.
A celebration: My living expenses are next to nothing, since I’m living with my dad again.
A change: Well, I was still unpacking into the first week, so I guess my move—but mostly the season got warmer.
A conflict: Living with my family has proved to be a little difficult for me.
A relief: I found more resources for helping treat my mental health.
A regret: I didn’t put time toward my manuscript this month.
A random memory: A cashier at a convenience store, whose first language was definitely not English, said to me, “Have a happy day.” It made my morning, and I did have a happy day.
Onward to June. I’m hoping that this month I can really, actually, finally get revisions going on THE PILGRIMAGE. That’s really my main goal. My priorities are so shaken after moving and diving straight into work. I also have another project that I’m working on (that has been on the backburner for ~3 years) that has suddenly picked up momentum again.
