I feel like a lot of us forget that doing normal things is actually... really hard? A lot of people don't understand how little energy / motivation we have sometimes, so here's a place to celebrate "little" victories.

 

I did my laundry this morning. All of it. All of the 3 loads that piled up. AND I used my little dryer balls so now all of my clothes smell like oranges and lavender.

Did I fold it... no but I DID IT so I'm feeling a little proud <3

I cooked for my parents who are quarantining, and then cleaned the kitchen afterwards. the temptation is strong to let the house become messy but i'll resist it!

Ah, I should be doing laundry as well but I still give myself credit for getting out of my bed, doing my new morning routine, tidying up my room and doing the dishes!

Having a bath.

Been neglecting myself recently, not washing myself not even brushing my teeth. But I'm sat in the bath right now. Goint to to my hair AND I'm going to dry it, put fresh pjs on and then brush my teeth.

Trying to take care of myself.

Laundry, applying to jobs, cleaning, cooking.. just bullshit tasks but it does take a lot out of me right now. I just want to sit around and vegetate to sad songs. Distraction is nice though and the endorphin rush of completing something. Do what you can <3

I got all my work projects done a week in advance! It was easier since Labor Day is going to mess up next week for me.

Love this thread! I stopped myself from thinking too dark thoughts this morning and have been focussing on staying round my bff's tonight (another thing I was proud of myself for organising last night). I don't want to socialise but I know it'll make me feel better if I do.

I did political sciences at uni too! Hope you're finding it interesting :) well done for doing the readings! I do some lecturing now, and I'd rather be on this end of it now than the student end haha.
