Q & A’s.
1.What is essential to start your day?
Tea, brushing my teeth, checking my phone.
Tea wakes me up. Brushing my teeth is the simplest assurance I am truly awake and present in my day. Checking my phone means seeing who of my loved ones has tried to get in contact with me. Moving around so much means my friends are scattered along different timezones. I have felt extremely isolated and alone to the point of being suicidal before. And combatting that means reaching out to people everyday, and allowing myself to be reachable everyday.
