Summer is a good time for writing, but bad for ticcing

A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.

~ Johann Wolfgang Goethe, from “Faust”

Hi everyone. Today is a partly cloudy day where I live. It is already May!!! Can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday when we were all counting down to a new year. Now, we’re a month away from it being halfway through the year.

I have been writing a lot more than I usually do. This is a good thing because it keeps my sanity around. I can express myself through whatever I write — in this case, my novel. I am in Chapter 5 when it comes to actually writing. I have been mostly editing things. Honestly, I don’t have very good vocabulary, so I have to rely on the online dictionary to make sure I don’t sound stupid, haha!

As many of you know, I did well at my first dance competition ever. For the first two dances that my other teammates were in, we got second place. In our last dance, the one I was in, we got first place!!! That’s pretty good for the first time. I can’t wait until recital — more than 80 dancers will be there. O_O

My tics have been extremely high the past couple of weeks. I have not only had forceful inhalation, but also forceful exhalation. My mom brought home a tooth-shaped squeezer that I can squeeze to get my anger out. It has helped me not try and hurt myself and other objects. I also have been rolling my eyes and jerking my head. It’s getting close to summer, which means my tics are going to be horrible!

It has been hard for my family to get my Zoloft at times. Financially, it’s hard to keep getting it. I quickly run out of it because they are only able to buy a certain amount of pills. So, I have been OK, but also very emotional sometimes.

School is going OK. I have to get everything done before July, so that adds a little stress on me. But I can make it through. I have before, so I can do it again. And that is what has gone on with me the past few weeks.

Question of the week: What has happened in your past few weeks?

Hope you all have a marvelous day! :)
