So, I’ve been quite absent in my blog posts. Life has been pretty crazy and I’ve been trying to get myself situated. My Ocrevus (MS Med) is actually working. I’m still in remission!
After a best friend breakup I moved back home and have been saving money for a new place. I’ve came to realize that in the worst of times family is always there for you. I don’t take that for granted because some people don’t have a support system. This is why I have became a support system for many people around the world on the internet.
I have been crafting a ton lately. I recently crocheted myself a beautiful purple shawl. It helps keep the mind occupied and is quite fun too. I found some stamps at a local thrift store and my mother found a loom for me to knit on. I’ve made one hat on it so far.
One other thing I’ve been up to is penpaling. I find that the old fashioned “snail mail ” is more personal and you can get to know someone through physical writing. It’s a new hobby but I enjoy collecting stickers and all kinds of fun things to send them! I recommend this hobby to anyone. They have Facebook pen pal groups you can join (this is what started my penpal journey in the first place) a lot of the people are super welcoming. I’m in multiple groups!
Hobbies always help me through tough times. I bet it would for you too! What are your hobbies? I’m sorry this blog post isn’t super lengthy. I hope you all have been doing well, I will let you all go for now but I’ll do my best to write more soon. 💓
