We’ll start happy:
1. Three of my CT friends are visiting this week and the All-American will be here this weekend. We are sure to have some great times around the Lowcountry.
2. Last night we went to Mellow Mushroom and then hung at K&M’s condo for some card games and drinks. I had a great time with everyone and look forward to more hangouts as the week goes on.
3. Walking on King Street (where the Mushroom is located in downtown Charleston) on a warm night is one of the greatest things in the world.
1. Didn’t get to go to the beach today because I had to take the pup to the vet. I’ll spare the details, but she should be okay. She needs a couple more appointments and some meds and she should be good to go. It is going to cost a lot, but that’s part of the deal when adopting a dog.
2. My recent visit to Charlotte and conversations with my CT friends has left me kinda bummed out this week. They don’t mean to, but when I’m around them I sometimes feel like a complete failure. As we were sitting around at Mellow Mushroom discussing work and things, I looked around the table and realized everyone there had their dream job, or at worst, a job they enjoyed. They all make pretty good money and everything seems to be going well with them. I’m incredibly happy for them, but it makes me reflect on my own situations.
This coupled with another incident that occurred this week has pretty much shot my self-esteem. I was making progress in that department but this week has done a number on me. I use to have a lot of confidence in myself (even if some of it was false), but it seems I continue to lose it as time goes on.
3. My Aunt has been fighting breast cancer for a few years now and honestly I don’t know how she is doing it. No matter how bad it gets, she keeps fighting through it. I don’t know if I could be that brave.
She has been getting weaker lately and the doctor said her chemo isn’t working anymore. She was given the option of stopping treatment or trying another form they haven’t used yet. Thankfully, she chose the latter. It doesn’t look good, but we’re not giving up hope.
