Just voice chatted for 40mins, my anxiety wasn't even that bad.

Today I went into the bank rather than the express window outside. There weren't a lot of people inside, but it was still stepping way past my comfort zone. I finished my transaction and didn't need to take a deep breath to keep myself calm.

Went in to the office to get paperwork rather than requesting it over email.

I went on a coffee date this morning with someone I met online. I was quite nervous about it all but it turned out okay. We had a lot to talk about, but I don't think either of us felt a real connection. She told me a few fitness places to try out which I might follow up on, and maybe down the road we'll have some activities we can do together. A relationship is definitely not going to happen between us though, oh well... try again.

Today I was a lazy lazy person, pretty much stayed in my comfort zone. I was wanting to ask a cashier if they have a product or not, but she looked like a supermodel so I decided not to. Hate this country, most of the girls look so good. And I've went to other countries, like UK, Italy, Switzerland, the girls that looked good there were rare by comparison. Don't get me wrong, if I didn't had SA, I was happy this is happening, but with this s*it I'm not.

Tomorrow I got some socialization planned, group activities at a foundation. Last time I went there I said said hi, hope tomorrow I'll get some more words out.

I went to another library event today. It was me and 3 women once again. It was so awkward they're talking while I'm just looking and listening. We made homemade detergent. One girl had to help me, lol. I made a damn mess. It was intense but exciting at the same time. I made sure to get all of their names before I left.

I did two sales calls today, just two. Because I walked into a mucking fess. I spent some face-to-face time with store managers, and started today off with a meeting with my boss and he gave me a list of my own stores. He's starting me off with 29, but I'll get more soon. It looks like he's going to make me his go-to guy lol, so yeah now I'm really ***d. I'm going to get all kinds of special projects, startups, resets. But that's what I'm there for. I got a lot done today. I took pics for my boss, took inventory to make sure our products were represented and still had shelf space. He has me all over Houston but I don't mind, that's what I'm there for and that's what mileage reimbursement and the car allowance are for. I started today off with a lot of anxiety for some reason. I keep having these thoughts of "what the hell did you get yourself into now", but I pushed through it. I think my boss is starting to relax a little bit, he was in a good mood today and I think I'm getting the hang of all this. He actually told me to go home around 3:00 this afternoon and that was nice.

I brought my sisters to their dentist appointment today. I had to do the registration things so I was nervous. Before that we had a problem about our bus cards. They didn't have the money we thought that we charged before. You can't use the bus without cards and we didn't have the money for one of us in them. I asked an old lady to use her card and give her the money as coins back. She accepted but I later realized I only had half of the money as coins and other money that I had was high amounted paper money . I gave her all of my coins but before that she said "You don't need to." We were very lucky. She was very sweet and understanding . We turned back with a taxi, which is again one of the most anxiety giving things for me.

I stood up for an opinion. That probably doesn’t seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but it was for me.

Contacted last woman from Jakarta and told her what was bothering me.
Contacted a very old friend and apologised for how I behaved before.

Both big things for me.

I finally had courage to talk about one of my biggest problems with my mother. It's related to her. She apologized about that old time and she said she'd have stand with us that time. She said she didn't know it was bothering us that much. I feel better now.

Went on a first date with a guy from an online dating site (first one for about a year). It was ok he was nice, but I'm home now recovering because I made myself feel so ill worrying about it. Not sure I can go through that again for a second date! Assuming there will be one!?! Gah! Glad I did it though and didn't back out xx
