Dichotomy of Conflicting Beliefs

I appreciate the dichotomy of maintaining conflicting beliefs about oneself. I regularly believe I am the greatest, while simulatiously nothing at all. I believe that everyone loves me, yet that everyone despises me. I am deserving, but I am not worthy.

Lack of Structure.. Again

As the world continues to work it's way out of the lockdown and towards a "normal" state, I have found my schedule being completely ruined. I moved to a new apt and we're back in the office so I lost the previous routines of working on Setkit and writing. How to maintain consistency and yet be flexible with unforeseen plans?

Wrong Kind of Noise

I tend to sit with something on in the background. Unfortunately, when at home or working on personal projects I tell myself it's fine to listen to videos or shows (I love bloopers and deleted scenes on YouTube). Even though I've seen them all before I still get distracted and don't work as well even though I tell myself I can.

Digital Detox

What would you do for 24 hours without a phone or computer?

Desire to Delay

Why are some things so hard to do, simply because we don't want to do them or are reluctant to start. And yet once we do them, they don't take nearly as much time or require as much effort as originally anticipated.

Anxiety as an Upside-Down U Curve

Starting out the day, when well-rested, I'm feeling good. Halfway through the day, after a lot of work and a lot of pressure I get increased worry and stress. By the end of the day, I'm more or less at the point of, well, who cares? Let's just give up. Obviously that's not an ideal situation to be in, but oddly enough, I feel okay about everything. Or maybe apathetic about everything, which is feeling nothing at all.
