About Anxiety

I almost had a panic attack a few nights ago. Anxiety is something that I've dealt with for as long as I can remember, but it was not until about two years ago that I decided to do something about it.

That panic attack came as they all do, unexpectedly, as I was walking down the hallway during my first few weeks of law school. I was in a new environment, learning about entirely new things, and meeting new people. As I was texting with my boyfriend about one thing or another, I felt my heart getting increasingly rapid, my palms sweat, and an intense need to run away. I turned around and walked towards the other side of the building--I needed to sit down and breathe.

Getting Older

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything here or even wrote something other than a few academic papers; but I've recently realized how much I miss writing. Usually, instead of actually writing, I find myself thinking about it or wishing I would just do the damn thing. For some reason, here I am now--not really promising anything for myself or for others--just trying to get back into it.

I recently (on February 12th) turned 24. Although by no means is 24 considered old, I was overwhelmed by what that age means to me and how I think about where I am in life.  One the one hand I am extremely proud of where I am and where I am going. I've finished my first year and a half of law school, gone through incredible family trauma, surpassed five years in a very stable and healthy relationship, and overall have a better sense of who I am.
