In a stunning change of pace, I have been GOING OUT and DOING THINGS. Yes, you've read correctly. I...don't really know what happened. Me, the socially anxious, crowd hating person has been going out on a consistent basis. I've even been to the strip and downtown within the same week.
I think the more I've gone out and done things, the easier it has become. Living really close to my work has also helped, going from a 45-50 minute commute to 10 minutes is life altering. Driving makes me cranky, and now I don't feel like I'm being tortured if I have to go to the grocery store after work or if I'm invited to something during the week. I recommend you all move 10 minutes away from work. ;)
This doesn't mean that I'm still not anxious, that is still very much there but I'm trying to do things anyway.
I got to go to Wizarding World of Harry Potter last weekend for my friend Stephanie's Birthday! It.was.amazing.
My first and only objective was to get a wand. Olivander's shop did not disappoint. As a ravenclaw, I was excited that my favorite wand happened to be Luna Lovegood's. I was thisclose to buying Fleur's, but the tulip won me over.

This summer should be a good one, already have plans to go to a wedding next month, concert in July, and I want to go camping at least once. Why not carry on with this momentum?
