Journal #23: Feeling Off

This is from a journal written on February 11, 2022, from Medellin, Colombia.

I've been feeling a bit off this week. Not sick, not sad, just off.

This might be due to a couple of factors:

  1. Brett's been sick with a stomach thing and hasn't left the room much since we started the workweek

  2. I was super inconsistent with my BC this week, so my hormones are probably all out of wack

  3. The weather in Medellin has been cloudier, rainier, and colder than any place we've been so far

  4. There's no rooftop at this Selina

  5. I haven't been able to get a solid workout in constantly

  6. The week prior was kind of a bender with my sisters

  7. Oh yeah, and we just entered month three of being on the road

Whether it's one or several of these factors, something is affecting my mental health and anxiety levels.

You know, we started this adventure absolutely stoked. The whole time we were in Costa Rica we were ecstatic, then we got down a little in Panama (probably because we were sick), then back up in Cartagena (besides that one week that was rough with work). All in all, we have been in high spirits pretty much this whole time.

Maybe what I'm experiencing is the natural cycle of emotions that one goes through when leaving family and friends behind to explore new places.

Maybe the traveling honeymoon phase is already starting to wear off.

Or maybe I'm just a bit emotional from a hormonal imbalance.

Whatever it is, I'll check back in soon to see if or when I shake this.

Tay, out.
