Dear Journal, I can't put my finger on it. Something just feels a little odd lately, I think it's a combination of being tired, being immersed in writing, close to being back at work and never being 100% relaxed leaves me feeling somewhat itchy in my skin.

But I did stick by my promise, I spent very little time on social, and virtually no time in wordpres.
