An Observation About Annual Leave

08/04/21

Hello. I am very stressed out and exhausted, thank you for asking. Two more days to go, and then I’m off work for three weeks. I very much look forward to recuperating and relaxing and recovering, as I am, very much, in need of time off. (Love my job, by the way. Still def. need some leave.)

Whenever I’m stressed and overwhelmed and mentally scattered, I yearn for organisation and rules and fixed things. Hence, I’m already licking my lips at the thought of starting my leave by decanting bags of spices into jars and alphabetising my spice cabinet.

If you think I’m joking, you don’t know me at all.

An Observation About Blooming

07/25/21

I have honestly, honestly tried to bloom where I’m planted. I can’t. My high sensitivities and extensive need for downtime mean that the life I live now is extremely draining for me. Unfortunately relocating or recreating my life has proven very, very difficult because money and jobs – neither of which I’m particularly bothered about personally, but both of which are necessities in a capitalist society. Preconditions clash.

An Observation About You’re Asking Me?

04/23/21

One thing I really hate about my high sensitivity: random panics. When I’m asked a question and the person clearly expects me to know the answer, I panic. Should I know? Do I know? Have I forgotten? Gaaah! If it turns out I do know, I need a bit of time to get my head into order after the sudden disturbance that is a question. If I don’t know the answer, I’m fairly certain it’s just because I’ve bloody forgotten and feel so very embarrassed.

An Observation About Comfort

03/04/21

For the past few months, I’ve been watching nothing but reruns of my favourite old TV shows. I’m burnt out on lockdown and worry and not seeing my parents and not being able to plan and having something to look forward to and I don’t need need the wonder and anxiety of novelty: what I need is comfort so shut up about Wandavision and bring on the Golden Girls. *bundles up in a blanket*
