July 30th

Dear July,
This week left me mentally and emotionally exhausted. After work yesterday, I felt like all my effort went into getting home. Once I’d done everything I needed to do, my brain quietly shut down.
So today, I let myself do nothing. I didn’t get out of my pyjamas. I didn’t really get out of bed. I watched videos and lay close to my boyfriend and talked to my brother on the phone. I watched four episodes of a bad period drama on Netflix (because I’m rapidly exhausting the store of good period drama on Netflix). We ate cheesy toast and easy noodles and pasta with veggies. And had cup after cup of tea.
My brain is starting to boot back up again. Leaving the house tomorrow seems increasingly possible. A tiny corner of my brain is throwing around writing ideas. I feel more like myself again. Sometimes, you just need a day in bed.
