My therapist suggested I might try journaling again, as a way to just... get stuff out. She meant a private journal, which I will do, but I was thinking about it and figured I might try to use LJ again sometimes, too.

It's weird to type 'my therapist'. I had my second session with her last night, and I like her, but I'm still trying to get a feel for talking with her, and how things are going to go. I've always believed in therapy, in theory, but I've never seriously done therapy myself, so it's... odd feeling.

Other than that, life just keeps trucking along. [ profile] lonelyarcher has officially moved back to NY... I know people up there are very happy to have her back, but I am going to miss her terribly :P [ profile] imthelobster and I are mostly moved now, just have a few more misc boxes to go through and either store, put away, or throw out. I really didn't think we had so much STUFF, but there's been just boxes of crap everywhere. I'm hoping once we have that mess taken care of, things will feel more normal again.

I've been doing pretty well in school since I started going back. I'm taking two classes this semester, and it doesn't seem like a lot, but when you add on working 45 hours a week I get pretty tired sometimes. But it's been good, and I've been keeping up with my homework and stuff pretty well. These are still the easy classes, since I never finished my AA before, but still. I failed easy classes last time around cause I just never went or didn't feel like doing the work, so it's still progress.

Yay for more LJ usage! Someday everyone will come back... someday... >_>

The solution to the [ profile] lonelyarcher problem is clearly to get you and [ profile] imthelobster up here. Philly/NYC is lovely this time of year! Not quite as nice as New England, I'll grant you, but I bet we have more fall than you have down there. :P

You definitely have more fall than we do :P And yet somehow, we're headed more south instead.... :(

I encourage both journaling more and going to therapy. I know I will frequently work things out on LJ and then go talk to my therapist about them further. It's often a nice way to figure out what I want to say and what's most bothering me and then get the opportunity to talk about those specific things instead of just rambling to her. I hope you get more comfortable with it and find it beneficial.

I'm glad you're doing well with school! Look at you. ♥
