The other week I was in the Distillery District and realized the Christmas market was already set up. Had another year passed by so fast already? I can’t believe I’ve almost blogged 365 days in a row. It was a feat that in previous year couldn’t even get through to the first month, but I’m almost there guys! Super proud of my best friend and I!
I don’t know why but for the second year in the world, as the weather got colder, ants started appearing inside my apartment. I’m not really scared of ants but they are such a stupid nuisance. Are they looking for warmth at my place? These visitors are certainly unwelcome.
Last year they came in through cracks by the door, but this year they are coming mysteriousyl from the wall. They are the exact same type of small black ants. I tried everything including sealing all cracks, but they find another one to come through!
The only thing that really works is to bait them with peanut butter poison (that you can buy pre-packaged). Liquid bait doesn’t do anything, even though people online seem to really recommend it. The process of baiting is slow though. It’s not as instant as spraying them to death, but they would just end up coming out from somewhere else.
I’m obsessively watching as they carry the poison back to the holes they are coming from, awaiting their queen’s slow death.
My November blogs posts haven’t been very good. They are a bit uninspired, with few words and mostly just pictures that I found lying about. It wasn’t that I was particularly busy (after all summer is over), but my mind has been in a dark place. November depression is a real thing.
I’m still reluctant to talk about mental health at times, it is scary and I fear that whoever reads this will judge me but it’s important to talk about it. It’s especially meaningful for those that are dealing with the same thing to know that you’re not alone.
I don’t know what particularly about November that makes it so depressing. Summer is over, the days are shorter, the weather is colder. Leaving the house gets particularly hard, even when there are so many places to go. I feel burnt out and the more I start to thing about it, the deeper I fall.
I found that offline activites like colouring and lego have helped to take my mind off things. I’ve also been spending more social time with friends (that aren’t just attending concerts). From The Bloggess I learnt that depression lies. I just have to make my good days super awesome.
Let’s get through November together and look forward to an awesome December!
