I'm finally in the bay! I've settled six hours north of home and so far, so good.

Yesterday was my first night alone here. I had my moments, but I'm still here. Having my boyfriend help me through this and hanging out with my best friend during the weekend majorly helped me feel more stable. I'm lucky to have them in my life. I don't think I could have done it myself. Well, perhaps. But it would've felt something like trudging through lakes of molten lava in hell.

Now, to tackle my PhD.

Apologies for a lack of posting. I've been busy catching up friends and everything before I leave for the bay. Things have been decent, though a bit anxious about the big changes coming up.

The move is next Thursday and so there are a couple things I'm worried about. 1: I have yet to finish my MA thesis. One year since I started it, and I'm only five pages further in. I think about how in the world I'll ever finish a dissertation or a book at this rate. I wanted to finish the thesis before I leave LA. Let's see if I can plow through this! 2: I'm also crossing my fingers that my eating doesn't get too out of control as the moving date gets closer and closer. 3: I'm worried I''ll have another psychotic episode with so much going on. I am starting to see some warning signs. Not hearing the usual noises yet, but getting sounds confused with my name and getting dreams confused with reality more frequently. Gotta make sure I take all my meds on time and watch myself carefully.

Everything else is going decently. Please excuse my absence for the next week or so while I make the trek up north and get settled in.
