Just finished writing the first draft of my last chapter of my comps package!
The world is like “Why are comedians depressed and anxious?” and “Why are academics depressed and anxious?” and “Why are moms depressed and anxious?” But I was depressed and anxious before I did comedy or went to grad school or had a kid. So do those things draw depressed and anxious people? Do they make people depressed and anxious? Or is everyone depressed and anxious?

Today my doctor pointed out that after gestating a child for 9 months and nursing him for 33 months, I should give my hormones longer than 3 months to figure out their next move.
Threw off my anxiety just long enough to ask my doctor for anxiety meds. (Reader, she prescribed them.)
On my commute this morning I was pondering further whether I’m a Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Since we know the Sorting Hat takes wishes into account, I thought, “Well, which would I tell the Sorting Hat to put me in?” Then I thought, “I don’t want to be in the same house as people like Crabbe and Goyle, so, Ravenclaw.” Then I thought, “Yes, Ravenclaw people will be more fun to spend time with at Hogwarts.” Then I thought, “But what will knowing Ravenclaw people get me after I leave Hogwarts?” And the fact that I asked that question, well… BETTER BE SLYTHERIN.
Wizarding World app just sorted me into Slytherin, just as Pottermore did many years ago, so I guess maybe it’s time to accept that it, and not Ravenclaw, is my true house?
