A New Chapter

Recently I got hired at a new job. There are so many things that are terrifying about this. I’m just a really awkward and nervous person when approaching new situations. So many thoughts run through my head, and I tend to believe the worst. My anxiety just gets the best of me. I never know what to say when I meet new people. Heck, I never know what to say to the people I already know.

After writing that little blurb, I’ve gone into panic mode.

Oh no.



Where has summer gone?

It’s August 1st, and it doesn’t even feel like summer at all. The weather has been pretty cold, even colder than usual for a summer in Vancouver. I haven’t been doing much either. I went away for one weekend, but a weekend just isn’t long enough. I did have fun though! I’m going away again for a week on the 18th. I hope it ends up being fun, but I doubt it will. But life’s what you make it, so let’s make it right..? (I believe that is a quote from former Disney star, Hannah Montana.) Other than that, I’ve done nothing. I’ve got one volunteer job coming up, which I’m really excited for because I don’t have an actual job and I really want to do something productive. Also, I’m hoping so badly that I land another volunteer job. One that lasts an entire hockey season. I love helping people. I really do. It makes me so happy whenever someone thanks me and tells me that my presence is appreciated.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this alone or useless in my life, and that is saying a lot considering my past. My life is pretty sad.

Party hard!
