Eh? I thought I'd come face to face with that loathsome innocent-looking hatched chick since I didn't write last night (lost track of time and got really upset when I realized it was past midnight, and at the thought of losing the streak again JUST A DAY LATER), but that was previous day continuing.
It's pretty demotivating to have to start from scratch but why does it matter so much? It's a number on a site. It doesn't mean I didn't write that day, because I did... just not on 200wad.
Anyway. I'm glad I didn't end up writing yesterday because I would have just used this space to vent (I was in queue to apply for a Schengen visa for 3 hours, and when it was finally my turn, I was told my salary certificate wasn't enough and that I had to show my work permit for proof of employment and my company's ministerial registration. Visa processes have always been traumatic for me), which it looks like I've ended up doing because it's been such a rubbish week. Thank God it's the weekend (Friday-Saturday in Kuwait)!
Thank you for sticking around to read thus and my apologies for the terrible post. There's a huge difference between writing and journaling, and this space is not for the latter. This is the exception and will not be the norm from me 🙏🏻
