Celebrated my birthday properly for the first time in a long while. Sister couldn't make it because she spent the night in the hostpital. Wanted to visit her but couldn't. Found out that I am pretty good at bringing my D&D characters to life and improvising for four hours straight. Also found out that my parents almost lost their new home and were at risk of plummeting into a debt trap. (They're not anymore.) Had a great weekend where my girlfriend (finally) met my parents for the first time. But when that was over I had to work a 14 hour day of mentally exhausting work to get a project done in time before the two-day retreat / training I just came back from. Which was very valuable and taught me more about myself, but was also emotional and confrontational at times.
In other words, life's in rollercoaster mode. I'm holding on but I am looking forward to catching my damned breath again.
