Stuck in a Rut
I'm stuck in a rut.
I'm very happy, but I feel unfufilled. Nothing that I create lately is bringing me any joy, other than this writing — and even it seems frivolous. Enough so to not share it.
Am I depressed? I don't feel depressed, but perhaps I am.
Depression is a tricky thing — especially when it manifests like this. For, I am truly happy and very blessed at this time. Nothing is going wrong.
Yet, somehow, nothing feels quite right either.
I just need a break from the monotony of the day-to-day, perhaps. PyCon 2017 is coming up soon, and should provide some much needed social stimulation to my life.
I'm so content, so happy, yet so... empty right now.
I just want to create something I'm proud of. That hasn't happened in a little while.
I'm proud of this journal, strangely enough. It makes me happy.
