January of Me-Day 7



Starting Thoughts
How am I going to cope ahead for Sunday? I've written about Sunday in previous posts, but I am nervous about splitting on my FP should his football team beat mine. I also wondered if making the choice to fool around with my roommate was a good one. We had done so the night before, and pumped the brakes right as we got to sex. I mean, the fact that we stopped before getting to sex shows a lot of control I think. Still, I'm sure any kind of intimate connection with a roommate is a bad idea, but at this point it's something I need and who I give my time to is no one's concern. I was actually going to write more here, but I am trying not to justify myself anymore to people.

Progress
  • Bought cat food for Molly and people food for me (roommate gave me a ride). I'm trying to make meals I can use throughout the week. I'm not good at buying stuff to cook long term. Just individual meals, dry stuff, snack stuff, or produce.
Mindfulness/Other DBT Skills
  • Used interpersonal effectiveness instead of posting something passive aggressive.
  • Was able to get myself into wise mind and keep from splitting on my FP.
  • Yoga. Wasn't able to do morning because I slept in, but I did do a nice routine after running errands.
Highlights
  • Went to a writing and drawing meet up. It was okay, but seemed to be mostly for drawing. I did meet someone who was attending a convention I am so we traded information. The goal wasn't for me to commit to meet ups, it was to attend at least two and meet new people.
  • Went to a hot pot place in Chinatown with an old friend and couple of other people to talk about the aforementioned convention.
  • Hung out with my roommate for a bit after I got back.
End Thoughts
I achieved goals today by attending meet ups, but at the same time today defined what it means to be an introvert. I could almost literally feel the energy being drained out of me as it got later in the day.
