    It's not a particular person

    or thing that has me down just an overall feeling today. I can't shake it. Perhaps I will just dwell in it for awhile.

    Sometimes, I wonder what the point of anything

    is. Everything I do is just in the pursuit of normalcy and happiness. And if this is a phase, oh God, just let it pass over me.

    Small achievements can really lift my mood

    and one bad thought can shut me down for the rest of the day. Today is one of those days. I let them win again. I let my demons tackle me down until I felt numb and now I'm waiting for a new day to try again because today I lost.

    I mistakenly deleted all of my writings,

    poems, written songs and other stuff off of my computer. They were the only copies I had and I have no idea how or if there is a way to get them back. This makes me not even want to write anymore because so much captured emotion and so much of my hard work is just...gone.
