- Have been Spring Cleaning all my social media accounts, unfollowing and deleting, and finally feel clear-headed and calm instead of constantly overwhelmed and irritated.
- Have almost definitely decided to try studying with Open University (distance education) this summer, because I really want to see what I’m capable of. And I have nothing else to do. At this point I don’t particularly care if I don’t finish the degree or if I hate it and drop out again (hopefully it will all go well though), I just need to be doing something - and I might as well do it now when I’ll still too ill to go travelling or do any of the more exciting things that I feel University would get in the way of.
