You really seem to have experienced a lot during these two years. I feel like I have mostly been putting myself back together, but that is a wonderful feeling. I'm doing better than I thought possible 2 years ago, and I am hopeful that that trend will continue.

It’s a lot because I graduated university and realized I don’t want to slave away in an office. I’m terrible at it and I hate it. So it’s been a lot of figuring out what I could do to earn money differently. Also, I love traveling so as soon as I save up a bit I like to go on an adventure. It’s been really stressful at times, seeing my savings dwindling without any concrete plan ahead. I lucked out with the tour idea, so it all seems worth it now but there were moments in there I didn’t know how long I could keep going. I like to always have a couple projects going, and something usually pans out. I’ve noticed I get really unhappy if I don’t feel I’m being “productive “. Even just having fun is a lot of “work”...

Good luck on the continuation of putting yourself together :) I feel that’s a lot of what we all do, all through life. It’s a constant struggle, but it’s nice to look back and see how much he been done too!

In a way it doesn't even feel that hard anymore. Even now, while being on hour 5 of a horrible migraine. A surprising amount of problems in life can be solved with positive thinking. Granted, you need a functioning brain for that, which I now have thanks to my lithium deficiency being solved.
