Sorry I haven't been around much - livejournal requires a more... thoughtful type of blogging than I've been capable of lately. Tumblr and twitter are more casual, sometimes thought-provoking but rarely thought-requiring. They're easier to use when I have less time and energy to put into things.
But I'm going to do an experiment this month. If it works, maybe longer.
I think it's no secret that I'm depressed and emotionally unstable. My mood can easily swing from giddy to gloomy and back again depending on what I'm doing and what people are saying to/around me. Since what I'm hearing these days (both on individual and widespread topics) is so overwhelmingly negative, it's been more and more common to find me in a sad, miserable funk.
I want to change that.
Starting today, I'm going to use this journal to describe things that make me happy. The amount of detail may change, and I might not explain why, but I think just having a list to look over later will make things easier, and I think it could really help me.
