However, the sun is shining today, a vast contrast to yesterday's downpour of rain, and it's got me thinking about all the things I have to be happy about and inspired me to write this post.
I'm going back to work! I only work on Sundays and after Christmas my boss decided that it simply wan't busy enough to open the shop on Sundays anymore. This past month and I bit I have really missed the pocket-money my little job brought in, and I was so excited when she text me last weekend to ask if I wanted to work on Sundays again. The only downside is that it's Valentines day, but I'm only working until 3:30 which leaves plenty of the day to do fun stuff.
My tablets are helping me. For the last three weeks I have been on Fluoxetine, a mild anti-depressant and SSRI for anxiety. I have struggled with depression since I was fifteen, and anxiety has crept up on me this last year, however I'm feeling so much better and my friends and family have commented on how happy I seem. In fact, I've been almost hyperactive some days and it's great.
The days are getting longer. All this 5pm darkness was making me absolutely shattered! The amount of times this last month I have considered going to bed, only to look at the clock and see it's barely 7pm! However slowly but surely the days are getting longer, and it's making me really excited for Spring and Summer to creep round the corner.
It's nearly half term. No Sixth Form for a whole week, YAAAAAAAAAS! Despite seeing my friends, that place truly drives me crazy and I would so much rather be at home.
I have a cat. We seem to have adopted the sweetest little cat! It's so cute and sleepy, it scratches at the front door to be let in, then sleeps on the landing or the living room floor for hours on end. I've never had a 'real' pet before so it's nice to have a little furry animal around the house.
6 month anniversary. As I mentioned in my Hello February post, it is mine and Sam's six month anniversary of being together on the 21st. We have such a cute relationship and we love celebrating even the littlest of milestones.
My fringe is growing out. In December I had the most disastrous fringe cut in. I liked it for about a day, before realising how much I truly despised it. It has finally started growing into a side-fringe and shouldn't be too long until I'm rid of it, never to make the same mistake again.
My blog has found it's feet. I only revamped my blog in January this year, and since then I have been totally committed to posting to it every day. It's so amazing to have so many awesome comments and replies, I'm so lucky to be part of this amazing community.
So many things to be happy about!
What things are you grateful for this month?
