DAY TWO

Today I tried to find some happiness in:

  • cool air and tea-drinking, jumper-wearing weather
  • reading a beautifully crafted Ph.D thesis on a gorgeous topic
  • waking up earlier than need be, and having a chance to grab a few extra hours of sleep
  • establishing a working bibliography
  • realising that I only need to write 13500 words, rather than 15000
  • the feeling of my muscles ache when I exercise them a bit more than usual
  • political satire
  • yellow leaves

DAY ONE

Things that have brought happiness to my day today:

  • that we’re always within touching distance
  • the way the air smells and the light looks in these, the earliest days of autumn
  • impromptu dates
  • trying desperately not to distract you, to the point where it actually defies practicality and is more a point of honour than anything else
  • books about literary devices in Latin
  • the Euphronius Krater
  • henley shirts

I’ve been truly out of sorts over this last week. I don’t know where I am in this world, where I am going, what I’m doing and it’s leading me to really question a lot. Perhaps most frighteningly, it is turning me into someone I hardly know and certainly not a person I like, let alone a person I feel deserves the privilege of being liked by others.
This must change.
In order to maintain the love in my life, I am going to focus on the expenditure of healthy, productive energy; seek out and accept help when needed, be passionate, avoid factors that cause unnecessary anxiety and strife, continue to foster the good relationships in my life, and love with all that I am.
In addition to the work I need to finish by the tenth of October and securing a proper job, I am going to write more for pleasure, take more photos, read novels, take better care of myself (mentally/emotionally/physically), drink more tea, walk more, and enjoy the changing of the seasons for the next 100 days.
