5 Lessons from Therapy

5 Lessons from Therapy

In 2018, I started seeing a therapist. I initially wanted to see someone for my anxiety that had only gotten worse since Alec arrived in September of 2017. I didn’t know what to expect during my first visit, but my therapist ended up being exactly who I needed. On top of anxiety, I was diagnosed with PTSD. This year, we realized I also have depression.

I’ve been working hard during my mental health journey, learning how to cope and working through my trauma. There have been several “lessons” that have been helping me along the way; some people may call these alternative thoughts or affirmations. They have greatly helped me almost daily. In an effort to keep breaking the stigma around mental health, I wanted to share these alternative thoughts with you on the blog today.

Normal Happenings

JAN 6 MUSIC

Animal Crossing is way underrepresented in this collab, so we figured Megan wouldn’t mind us pairing a track from one of the most peaceful locations in video games. After all, she’s gone on record to say that Animal Crossing is one of her favorite video game series, despite writing about a Final Fantasy character.

We’re pairing 8-bit music thematically, rather than based entirely on series. You can find this track and more Tater-Tot Tunes on YouTube! Also, rumor has it the potato itself will be dropping by to read these pieces, so be on your best behavior.


INTRODUCTION

Normal Happenings is proud to present The Characters That Define Us, a year long collaboration of 52+ incredible bloggers! We’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, and it’s finally here.

First up, we can think of nobody better suited to start us off than Megan from A Geeky Gal!…

On YouTube: BIG Channel Update // Why I’m Rebranding My Channel

On YouTube: BIG Channel Update // Why I’m Rebranding My Channel

I have a very special announcement today! I am rebranding my YouTube channel to better reflect the content I want to create. I’m sad to see my branding go on YouTube, but don’t worry; it’s sticking around on the blog. While things are going to keep being geeky, I’ve realized that I want to share more than just that one aspect of my life. Just like with my blog, I’ve found that I need the space to express myself more, and my YouTube name puts me in too small of a box. This isn’t goodbye, but rather a great big “Hello!”

Spoilers! A Look at 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

Spoilers! A Look at 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

Another year has come and gone on A Geeky Gal. It’s been a crazy year of growth for my blog and my personal life. I wanted to take a look at my 2019 resolutions that I set at the beginning of the year to see how far I’ve come, how my goals have changed, and what I want to work on next year!

I’ve made great strides towards a lot of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes). My mental health break was a great learning experience in that I realized what is most important to me, and how I can better handle future cases of burn out. Let’s be honest though, I want to avoid burn out again as much as possible. I have a feeling the year 2020’s resolutions will be much different from this year! — Mid-Year 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions
