Personal life

I'm going to Spain to visit some friends soon (Madrid, Zaragoza). Really excited about that. I should do a post about it once I get back. Sorry I don't post so much here right now. I've missed reading these threads.

I went to a politics event the other day. I want to get involved with something and help people. UNFORTUNATELY I didn't actually talk to anyone even though people seemed quite friendly. Then it hit me, I haven't actually been to a social event where I didn't know anyone for such a long time. Without exercising my social skills I think my anxiety has come back. I felt like I was back in first year at university again. I need to make a point of meeting new people more regularly. Just hanging out with the friends I know isn't enough...

I feel more and more stressed.

(on the plus side I have managed to do Memrise and Duolingo for Japanese and German every day for just over a month)


I went to a big corporate event the other day. It was dull. At least I managed to cycle to the venue. Some exercise is better than nothing. I've been told I should sign up to a gym. Why do I feel so unmotivated to just do something???? This is so frustrating. I keep telling myself I should cycle to work every day but that involves carrying my bike up and down the stairs in my building and for some reason I find that really intimidating. How did minor adulting tasks suddenly take over my life?
