The fact that there's no real internal record of the time you spend asleep used to really freak me out - if I could fall asleep one night and wake up the next morning with no true concept of that time having passed, then I was paranoid that I could wake up one morning and discover that years had gone by in a similar way. Time does seem to be flashing past; it seems only a month ago that I was making New Year resolutions, and it sometimes feels as though I'm just treading water. There haven't (so far) been big events that mark the year as different and new, yet I realised that there are small signs of progress that are just as important - if not more - than the shinier examples of change.

~ I've held down a part-time job, and been promoted
~ I've almost met my goal of saving a six-month buffer/emergency fund
~ I've kept up running in spite of injuries and illnesses and slow progress
~ I've read six books in French and one in Japanese, plus over 40 in English
~ I've spoken in, listened to, and/or read in French and Japanese every week, alternately (except for during the annual Harry Potter re-read :) )
~ I've been to visit my girlfriend's family in America with minimal anxiety, being more myself around them that I've ever been before, less intimidated and worried that they'd disapprove of me
~ I've bought new clothes (including Harry Potter Alliance t-shirts!!)
~ I've listened to new music (really into klezmer at the moment)
~ I've drawn again for the first time in years, experimenting a little with some charcoal that a friend gave me over a year ago, then going back to pencil
~ I've got tickets (as of five minutes ago :D) to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, despite the fact that the ticket website is a complete mess and it took a bloody hour, grrrrrrr, but also yayyyyyy!
