    Today I am grateful for:

    1) Getting a great (and unexpected) mark for one of the assignments I was a bit worried about

    2) For having the motivation to go to the gym (I haven't gone since April!)

    3) For spending some time with my partner and family today

    Shared experiences. Sometimes I feel so alone in what's going on, but coming here I know I'm not, and it helps.

    Books, books, books, gimme all the books!

    Sunshine (rain's coming, so I'm being thankful for today's sun, again, god I love sun!).

    I am currently in Sydney with the lockdown so now more than ever I think it is very important for me to think about what I am thankful for:

    1) My health and having access to fresh groceries

    2) My family for always supporting me and letting me live with them during this challenging time

    3) My partner and my friends who are always there for me no matter what

    To be alive, feel alive and the people who helped me stay alive.
    Those people are truly majestic.
