You have no idea how different your life may be in 1 year. I’ve said it before, but most people are one decision away from a completely different life.

I don't do it often enough but it's crazy how just putting yourself out there and trying to communicate with people can completely change your life.

You've gotta keep rolling those dice because every so often you'll roll a 6 and things will start to look up in a big way.

Trouble is when you're depressed it's really really hard to put yourself out there, I get that.

I'm not really, just have had enough therapy to be aware of that kind of thing.

I know what would improve my life but it's just hard to do it.

Everything just feels so draining and I don't really understand most people. It's hard to motivate yourself to socialise when you feel like the odd one out in every single social scenario.

I appreciate the care though :)

Despite having great success with job interviews last week, I feel really down today. I just hope that if I get the final interview with the company founder that I can muster the energy to do well because I just feel drained today and like I won't be able to do it.

My expected return to the office of a week tomorrow so that whole situation is causing me stress and is probably why I feel gooseberry fool today. But if I end up going through these four interviews and three tests only to be told "we're really sorry but someone else got the job" I don't know how I'm going to react.

Here's hoping I hear something tomorrow so I can at least prepare.
