The first month of 2017 is done already? I’ll be honest: this month was a blur. I don’t have much to write on January… It’s been a strange, hazy thirty-one days. I’ll make my Months In Review quick this year, with a few lines to sum up highlights and woes of each month—and maybe a few sentences to add some flavour.
A celebration: I reached my word goal of 70,000 for The Pilgrimage!
A change: I moved to new accounts for a fresher start to a new tome of my life.
A conflict: My PTSD and dissociation were incredibly prevalent this month, which might be why I was in a haze most of the month.
A relief: My application to graduate from university was accepted!
A regret: I didn’t make as much art this month as I planned or hoped to do.
A random memory: At the convenience store, I happened to look up as a girl left and her earbuds fell out of her pocket. It took me about 2 seconds to put down my things, tell my boyfriend I’d be right back, and pick up the earbuds to go return them to her. She was just walking out of the parking lot and looked incredibly relieved when I handed them back to her.
Onward to February!
