Things started off with a super demanding project at work that I found myself slightly scared to take on. But also really excited about. It's something that's going to challenge me as a UX designer and last week I had some major deadlines to hit by Friday. I was so sure it couldn't be done (my pessimistic side was out in full force on Monday) but then I actually did it! I was so happy with the results, as was my boss, and I just felt good about my work. I sometimes feel a bit of impostor syndrome (it's a real thing!) but that feeling was nowhere in sight by Friday.

Hm, what else? I did a lot of worrying and some over-thinking last week and will probably continue to do so again this week. There's just stuff going on at home that's hard not to worry about (send good vibes my way!) and lots of thoughts about the ever-changing nature of friendships. I keep thinking about something Lauren DeStefano tweeted: "There are no good friends and bad friends. They are only friends and not friends." It may seem like a harsh demarcation but at the same time it's like, if someone is a bad friend or isn't there for me, why should I just accept that? People never stop growing and I think that means friendships have to evolve and grow with you as well. But if you find yourself drifting apart, is it so bad to let run the friendship run its own course? I don't think so but sometimes it makes me wonder if I'm a bad person for feeling that way.
And last but not least, the weekend! My plan was do nothing but the opposite ended up happening. I got dinner with Carina and we stopped by B&N for a bit. Then I had family things to take care of, I read a really good book (Shuffle, Repeat!), went shopping with Mary Ann and got dinner at a place where we picked up sushi off a conveyor belt (!). I went all Marie Kondo on my closet again and best of all, Game of Thrones premiered. This was so much better than doing nothing!
How are you all doing these days?
