Thoughts on life, writing, art, and health.
I have tried to find balance with my social media use, but I admit defeat, even with the improvements to using social media less from the tactics I introduced at the start of the year. I am quitting (most) social media with the intent to step away for good down the line.
May feels like a turning point for the year and I'm looking forward to a lot this summer. I wrote a few small reviews for some books this month too, as well as decided to complete Breath of the Wild... Including the 900 Korok seeds.
While I didn't have many events going on, my mental illness flared up. I was on the edge and needed to stop, sit down with myself, and make sure I knew how to be okay from now on. Some content in this post openly discusses mental illness experiences, and so trigger warnings are included in that section.
We've got a sort wrap-up for March 2021. The rain dominated and I felt just as scattered as the precipitation.
At some point this final week, I forgot February had only 28 days. Was I here for this month? In a way, yes. Was I present? ...Nope. But let's get back to reality and look at books, music, games, mental health, accomplishments, highlights, and plans from February 2021!

Look, I'm sad and expressing it in poetry helps. Bipolar disorder is hard. I am not in crisis, I'm just real fuckin' sad.
