I am going out of my mind with this feeling that I’m just drifting off into space, oblivion, or maybe just coasting along. I don’t know. I’m just kind of existing. I don’t think I’m overly sad, though I am depressed. That’s a fun one. I mean, unless you’ve ever suffered clinic depression, it makes no sense. But it’s a true fact: You can be sad, but not be depressed, and you can be depressed and not be sad. Depression isn’t a gauge of how sad you are, even if you are in fact both depressed and sad.
Depression is really this state of being where you’re, I don’t know, feeling less than. Less than, anything and/or everything. I currently feel less than a person.
It doesn’t help that my day-to-day doesn’t change from one day to the next. All my days run together and aside from the occasional appointment, I don’t even have need to know what day of the week it is. And it’s driving me out of my mind, really. I am a human being who hates pressure, but still thrives under structure. There is no structure to anything right now. None.
My biggest thing I need to get back to is school and I know that. I needed winter off, I was drowning in life. The stress was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced just 4 short months ago.
I needed to take the summer off, because if my sister hadn’t received her new liver a few weeks back, we would have buried her by now. I was hoping for the best, but ready for the worst. I also would have started the term with my sister on her death-bed no matter what. It ended well, but it ended well at the last possible minute.
So I go back this fall and I’m so ready for fall to be now. I’m actually excited about it. I get to learn again! I’m going to start where I left off and delve into economics, only this time I’m going to take it in a classroom. It involves math and therefore follows the math rule: Never try to teach yourself math. i don’t care how helpful the text-book might be. Math is just one of those classes that needs the benefit of an instructor walking you through step by step. Economics is no exception.
As an added bonus, taking it in a classroom will mean I’m out of the house once a week! Go team! I’m going to burn this place to the ground if I don’t start getting out more! Only not really,because I’m a pyrophobe and I have like 500 books that I don’t intend to lose.
So I’m anxiously awaiting the day I can register (July 6th). I’m anxiously awaiting the first day of term (August 17th).
In the meantime, I’m just drifting and it’s soul crushing.
Dear God someone pull me out of this hole!
