Although I had a pang of dread, I managed to get to the shop and back. I like that sense of accomplishment you get when you don't want to do something but complete it any ways.

Our hopes and expectations. Black holes and revelations.

I usually leave the office around the same time every day when I go in.


Today, I left twenty minutes early. It has been a while since I have done that. I ended up making up the time at home, but I got to take nap in the process.

Met an old classmate today. Instead of just focusing on the business at hand I actually had a short conversation.

This is hard. I'm usually on autopilot ..get in-get out....stopping to engage in casual conversation does not come easily to me.

Walked to the shops, reached out to someone (even if formally) who is going through a hard time.

This isn't about SA, but my living room is no longer a hoarder's den. I can now use it again. I can sit on my couch and watch TV if I want. This is a big win for me.

Took a airplane flight lesson. Small Cessna aircraft with just me and the instructor at the controls. I even got to handle the controls a bit by myself. Don't have a bug fear of flying. Ive flown in commercial airlines plenty of times but being in the cockpit of a small plane was quite scary.

I tried going to a Japanese cultural festival tonight hoping to meet up with some classmates there, since I was nervous and too self-conscious to stay there alone. So I was mostly on my phone just hoping someone from class would get there already. It seems most of them didn't arrive until there was already a long line formed, so I couldn't take it anymore and called my family to pick me up. (As my luck would have it, one of them just got through the line as I already had to leave. )

Ah, well. It was somewhat bad timing and poor circumstances, too I guess..I hadn't brought any change on me for it either and the battery on my phone was dying. At least I tried.. I couldn't even get myself to speak in Japanese to any of the Japanese people there because of how self-conscious of my terrible speaking I am, or try much of the booths (Only stopped at one where a girl was writing people's names in Japanese) so it feels pointless that I went there, but in the past I wouldn't have ever so much as mustered the courage to even make myself go to something like that.



"So many resources keep me alive
Yet I don't even step outside
So many sacrifices keep me alive
Yet I don't even bother to survive."

Don't push your values
Push your values
Onto the crowd."

I made plans with two girls from my class to go visit an art gallery.
I am usually such a recluse, so I am very happy I did that!
I just hope I won't get too much anxiety and chicken out at the last minute.
I am going to try very hard to not give into that.
