All right, so I’ve sort of been back and forth with the idea that I might be bipolar, but then I’ll just sum my varying moods (Which cycle from very low/depressed/reflective to very euphoric/creative) up to being an INFP. I took a bipolar self screening test today and I scored quite high on the likelihood that […]
But then people wonder why you all of a sudden start laughing about poop. Or they wonder why you’ll literally run away from an annoying crowd rather than follow social norms and say your polite farewells.

Today, it dawned on me that I am officially done with online dating. I stood up my date this afternoon. We had planned to go for a walk to a local lake and it occurred to me that I would rather enjoy the walk on my own than go with a random guy that I […]
Something I’ve also learned since going through (And overcoming) severe depression is that sometimes we don’t notice that we are still depressed, simply because we feel so much better than we did before.
