Well folks I didn’t chicken out, as much as I wanted to. I went to the Meetup I started! This is a big deal for this Introvert. It’s weird, being an Introvert, yet wanting and needing more social contact. I want it, but I don’t want to leave the house. Quite a conundrum. Anyhoo, I went to the Meetup. Nineteen people were signed up for it (there are 109 members!!) and I had a big table reserved and I was so scared that I’d be sitting at this big table with my little Meetup sign and no one would show up. However! Thirteen people showed up and they were all very nice and it was lively and fun and not too scary at all! We came up with a nice long list of proposed activities which I came home and promptly scheduled (some of them, at least – about six weeks’ worth). So, I am proud of myself. I think this is a big part of my recovery, socializing. It might not seem like a big deal to most people, but to this Bipolar Introverted Introvert, it’s a big deal.
On the studying front, I have somewhat gotten over the overwhelmed and defeated feeling and worked on my studying. I took a practice test this week and got a 68% (last test was a 50%, passing is 70%). So I feel a lot better about my studies! I also applied for about five jobs, as I see my savings dwindle, I feel like I need to get proactive about looking for a job, even though I haven’t passed the Certified Ethical Hacker certification yet. I just put in my cover letter that I am studying for it. What the hell? I have to try.
Peaches and Herb have made lots of progress in the one little week that I’ve had them. They figured out how to build their nest, and they’re mating! Yeah! On with the babies!! No eggs yet.
Well that’s about all that’s happening in my world, how’re things in yours? Peaches (& Herb) say peach out! BPOF.
