Just three weeks on 200wad has helped me formulate and type my thoughts out faster than ever before. I no longer wonder about what to write about, although things may be different on say, Day 185. I wrote almost all my posts between 11:35 PM and 11:55 PM, and unless there was an internet connectivity issue, wouldn't have trouble clocking in the word limit. I've been really proud and satisfied with my ability to maintain a streak for so long.
It's so refreshing being a part of a supportive and non-judgmental community. I usually think 5500 times before posting something on my personal Instagram account, and I overthought Medium so much since i joined it, I haven't been able to bring myself to post anything on it since my first post a year and a half ago.
Today, somehow, I found myself squandering my precious writing window on Instagram (DARN YOU TO HECK, INSTAGRAM) and writing today's (or should I say yesterday's...........) went clean out of my head. I remembered thinking about it at 9:30, and then going ah plenty of time left. And when did I remember again? At eleven freaking-fifty-nine PM. I raced to open the website. By the time my profile loaded, it was already midnight and that hateful, loathsome chick had already usurped the place of my beautiful 22-day streak.
Serves me right for getting cocky.
