I'm feeling the same way this morning, KTA. So tired, so daunting facing a full work week. Cold. Anxious. You're not alone... I hope your week goes ok and you get through it without stress...

When everyone is gone and you are left to your own thoughts and they turn a bit dark :'(. Tired and lonely and worried. :/

Was stressed earlier but did the right thing and calmed myself down. Had a nice family meal in the house and I enjoyed a nice night out with my sister. Teaching a lesson tomorrow at 11am.

Haircut. Shopped for graduation dress. Sister came to meet me. Went to a cinema club β€œMeet Up” and met some new people. Found a student to tutor for a little extra cash. #feelinggood #proudofmyself

Only this past little while, I have started being more honest on here and also even with myself about my mood. I think I was over-rating it a month or so ago since I started on MP. Thanks all for

non-judgemental, unconditional support, for the hugs and helpful comments/tips/interactions. It really does feel a lot. I have been lonely sometimes of late, having moved to a new city but I always have friends on MP (excuse the cheese! πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚)

Goals: 1. Healthier eating - nip the binge eating, especially anything I'm allergic to, in the bud. 2. Regular bedtime and time to get up. 3. Diary entry every night.

Should be proud of: my budgeting money, social efforts, setting a limit on school prep to look after myself, coping so well with a lot of changes and especially such a huge workload, problem solving and quickly adapting to new challenges.

Habits to build as a teacher - be a bit bossier, delegate tasks to students, set work to keep them busy, plan work I can do while they are working if necessary. Share study resources with them, model good behaviour, model study skills.
