Sometimes past me makes current me cringe

That’s a sign of progress right?

Pretty sure I had a chuunibyou phase lasting all through middle school and a good bit of high school, now that I think about it. Sometimes I just want to go back in time and tell myself to chill lmao

As embarrassing as it is, I think acknowledging that your past self was not your best self means that your current self is at least better than your past self? Or at least, you like yourself better than you did in the past. I certainly hope I’m a better person now, and all you can really do is try your best and keep on improving I guess.

That’s it. Just wanted to get that out there.

What I’ve been up to lately

Welp, it looks like I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a while. Just while I sort through my personal life. I have a lot of anxiety, especially about my future and my career, and it’s really affecting me in detrimental ways. Writing blog posts here where I’m (more or less) anonymous, just another person on the internet, used to be a way for me to deal with it. However, sometimes I’m not entirely comfortable putting myself out there, so I’m going to try to change things up a little bit. Also it’s a way for me to get used to changes in life. So yeah, not that there’s many people even reading this blog, but there is going to be quite a bit of a break between this post and the next one.

In the meantime, please watch Yuri!!! on Ice; this anime is everything!!! Excellent OST, great voice acting, (mostly) awesome animation, and most importantly, a canon healthy romantic relationship between two adult men that isn’t fetishized or otherwise offensive. It’s literally a sports anime that just happens to have a gay couple as the main characters. If you’re looking for more anime like this, I also recommend No.6, which is a dystopian story, and the couple is in their late teens. It’s also not about the relationship, and there is also (more than one!) on-screen kiss that isn’t fetishized or dramatic or anything. Like all they want to do is overthrow the government it’s great.

A modified Level 10 Life

Let’s not think about the election for a bit. Now is the time for self-care and focusing on your own well-being.

The level 10 life is a way to evaluate your life and how satisfied you are with yourself. There’s goal-setting involved, but there’s no “best” way to live your life. It’s evaluating where you are compared to the life that you want to have for yourself. There are 10 main categories. A more in-depth explanation of the level 10 life is here.

Dealing with insecurity

One of my constant worries is whether I’m good enough. Like, for life. Am I doing things the right way, am I doing things well, am I disappointing everyone, do I seem like I have no idea what I’m doing ever? Obviously, logically, I know I’m a competent person. I’ve made it through college and I have a job and people around me seem to think I’m doing fine. But what if I’m not?

Asexual Awareness Week

Asexuality describes people who do not experience sexual attraction. Like many other identities, asexuality is a spectrum (e.g. people who are gray-A may experience very little sexual attraction). This is not to be confused with romantic orientation, because many people who are ace are still romantically attracted to others. (People who do not experience romantic attraction are called aromantic, and that identity is not interchangeable with asexuality.) People who are asexual are often “invisible”, because this is an identity that can be both easily hidden and extremely difficult for people to understand. Thus, Asexual Awareness Week, held during the last week(ish) of October every year. This year, it’s 10/23 – 10/29. Find out more on their website!
