Low Point.

What I have been doing for the past three weeks :

1. Regular dental appointments

The Dental appointments take up most  of my mornings-provided I do wake up in the morning.

2. A Ton of Paperwork

A Visa Application, enough said.

3. Library clearances.

4. Going to the Bank and making sure my checks go to the right places.

5. Editing a rather large report on Child Rights and The Mainstream print  Media- I didn't write it, only edited it.

I've also gotten completely blocked up and cannot write anything. What is worse is, I haven't even bothered to pitch/ submit any fiction or non-fiction. Ideally, I should be preparing for my course in Social Anthropology ( slated to begin in September) and before that, read up for my Creative Writing Course in August. This isn't supposed to be happening! I've turned into a lazy lump that swims around the bowl, eats and sleeps! :(

***
I've tried to analyse why I can't seem to be focusing now and it's probably because I'm worried about a ton of things- what will moving out feel like? Will I be able to achieve what I want to? Will I be able to do things on my own terms? The questions are neverending and the answers equally ambiguous. I suppose the best thing to do right now is to shut the head, stop overanalysing and go with the flow.

I know our situations aren't the same, but living by yourself isn't so bad. Just remember to throw yourself into your work! Oh, and good luck with your new university.
