If I have things to look forward to, the anticipation and carrying them out brings joy. Could be work, a baseball game, reading.

Anhedonia is common among sz. Maybe try a new hobbie or go eat at a new restaurant. Variety is the spice of life.

I do things that make me joyful and happy.

Long term goals, I guess…career, job, education…it’s good to think about and be positive and patient…even if it’s unrealistic. I cannot or do not just want to exist.

Recently I have been enjoying movies on Showtime. I bought this Irish songbook for guitar that’s cool. I like to draw and put my pictures on Facebook. I need someone to give my gifts to. I hope they bathe, lol. I hate it when people smell.

We’re all going to die. Have fun and have a nice day.

that actually helps me to remember that haha

by doing the correct thing every time

Caffeine, family ties, music and friends

I rode my eScooter around town at lunch and took pictures. It was joyful.
