This week has been both difficult and rewarding. I’ve made it a point to go out, both with quanta and by myself, several times. I’ve talked to strangers, and I’ve tried to be less concerned about what people may be thinking about me. All of this may sound like simple things to most of you, but they are big steps for me. Especially when you realize that I’ve actually been happy all week. It is nothing short of amazing.
I’d also like to share that I have a new job, one which is better suited to my temperament and desires. I will be working at a little card and gift shop, which has excellent hours and a wonderful owner. I did say I didn’t want to work in retail again, but I am really looking forward to this job. It is full time, but the hours are nice enough that I will still have plenty of time to write and dream.
