Update on 100 things

My quest to do 100 things in a short amount of time was cut short due to a traumatic experience. The physical and mental anguish it caused increased my need for both self-care and medical attention.

#19: Deal with a source of pain on my own terms Sometimes people do things so cruel that you can't comprehend how anyone could be so evil.

Yesterday I got beaten up by a girl who stole my phone. I'm not badly injured, but my phone is very damaged.

100 New Things in 30 Days: Day 2

The problem with this mood-boosting resolution is that I came up with it the day before I needed to start. Well, it's not really a "problem." The tight deadline forces me to follow through.

I woke up this morning after unrestful sleep, still feeling depressed. I'd dreaded starting my 100 New Things in 30 Days, necessary though it was for my emotion wellbeing. Still, it was July 31st.

Earlier this month, I visited my family for my birthday. I've been really depressed since I got back to LA. I desperately wanted to move here since discovering Francesca Lia Block at 14.
