I didn’t have a lot of goals this year, because I was still feeling like a huge metaphorical explosion had radically destroyed and rebuilt my sense of self and life. Which it had! Becoming a parent is wild as hell, especially when you’re the carrying parent. On top of my radically different responsibilities, routines, and priorities, I was a mess of post traumatic stress from the birth and wildly fluctuating hormones. They call it the “baby blues” but that is hilariously underselling it, and they also don’t tell you at all about the hormone dips you still experience months out. Did you know if you chest feed you experience a hormone drop that feels a lot like a depressive episode every time your kid eats less than normal? I DIDN’T BUT NOW I DO
This is setting aside the whole pandemic thing, which I’m sure played into my general detachment from Before Mom Me. Good news though, I’ve felt like a human for a few months now! So if you currently do not feel like a human because you grew a life recently, there is hope.
Anyway here’s what I had on the docket!
Goals in 2020
- Exercise 60 times
Nah but Kirby likes ring fit so I feel like this year is my yeaaar
Apply for Promotion (Again)
I did! And I’ve been recommended, so here’s hoping the university doesn’t collapse before April 1 2021.
- go 1 month without ordering food
I wanted to claim this but I’m prettty sure making marcus walk to the tim hortons counts.
