Random Ramblings, #4

Bookish Ramblings

1. I haven’t been reading as much lately. I mentioned on another post that I just moved across the country, so I haven’t had much time on my hands. Oh well. I did start up again; I’m in the middle of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

2. Does anyone else struggle to read when dealing with anxiety? It’s kind of a vicious cycle because reading would help me take my mind off things, but I have trouble focusing when I’m anxious. 

Writing Ramblings

1.  I haven’t written a damn thing in quite awhile. Again, this ties back to the anxiety I mentioned. I can’t focus. 

2. There are a lot of “bad” writers out there, and I worry that I might be one. My worst fear is to be compared to a writer I have no respect for, or for an author I love to be critical of my writing. 

Personal Ramblings

1. I’m currently unemployed, and it’s stressing me out. I have no idea what to do; I just know I don’t want to step foot in the classroom ever again. I also relocated because of my husband’s job, and I don’t know a soul here. I’m really hoping something turns up soon because we need to income. 

2. This state is ridiculously expensive. I knew this going in, but still. Some of it’s just crazy (like the car registration fees). It’s a little nauseating because I’m wondering if we made the right decision in moving out here.

      That’s good to know! This is the third time I’ve moved away, but the last two times were to go to college and then for an internship, so it never felt like a big change.

    I’m sorry you’re going through this difficult time. Moving is such a huge change and dealing with anxiety is never easy, especially when it affects our passions. I hope that things begin to settle down and you are able to find peace soon.

    Everyone has those self doubts about their own writing. We are our own worst critic, after all.
    Moving is difficult. I’ve done it a few times, all for my husband, but you’ll settle in. Outside of looking for a job, I recommend Meetup. You could find a book club or writing group. That’s what helped me feel at home in my new state this year.
