without sounding toooo narcissistic, i spent my entire shift at work today thinking about myself. i know, i know. it does sound bad. but normally all i do is think about other people and today, i spent the entire shift thinking about what i wanted to do in the next few months and over this next school year. i have this theory that doing dishes is the best way to get yourself out of any sort of mind-bloggling matter- within three hours, i'd devised a page worth of ideas and things i wanted to accomplish in the next school year. grades, extracurricular activities, my relationships, jobs, hobbies, photography, blogging, ect. i think for the most part i've been using photography and work as a bit of an escape from reality to just let things sit in my mind for a while. i think i might incorporate some of these things i want to do into a '22 before 21' list like so many bloggers do and having a list always helps me actually do instead of talk about doing. immediately after my shift i ran to my dad's office downstairs where i hammered everything out into an email that i sent to myself. progress.
THANK YOU all so much for your kind tweets, emails, comments, and instagram messages on my birthday! i had a spectacular if not low-key birthday and it was exactly perfect. i love you all dearly.
