Mala: Sarah’s Weekly Newsletter

Tuesday, February 18

Good morning, everybody! I hope your week is off to a good start. The weather has been a bit nicer than usual lately, so I’m really appreciating that, especially since I do so much commuting throughout the week.


I’m not going to lie, I feel (physically) like shit this morning. I’ve been able to sleep pretty well for the last couple of months, thank goodness, but last night I woke up around 3am and it really threw me off. I did fall back asleep after a little bit, but I’m still paranoid that my insomnia will come back. Nonetheless, I’m trying not to think about that so I don’t go down a total anxiety rabbit hole.

Besides that, I’m doing pretty well! My life has been very confusing and turbulent lately, but also extremely nice. I was thinking this morning on the train that I feel like I have the sun in me, because I’m so happy and bright lately. Although it’s been crazy, I feel like I’m really starting to come around to a sense of clarity, and that feels amazing. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to offer up more details, depending on how things pan out.

Anyway, I have my internship today, so hopefully I can stay energized despite my rough night of sleep. My PMDD is still lingering on a bit, but I should be feeling much better tomorrow now that I’m on my placebo pills.

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having a great end to your week. I’m feeling really good today, and I’m finally not exhausted every morning now that my PMDD is subduing. I’ve had a pretty eventful week, I have to say, filled with a lot of ups and downs (but primarily ups.) I’m looking forward to tomorrow, as I’m going to be attending a MIRA volunteer event for a school project, and then, a very dear person and I are going to the MFA afterwards. I’ve been really big into art appreciation lately, as I’m sure you can tell. 

So, that’s all very good. I wish I could say more about the wonderful things happening in my life, but admittedly I’m scared to jinx it! So I’ll wait a little bit, and see how things are still going, and then maybe I’ll spill the tea to all of you.

The weekend is here, and I’m enjoying sleeping in and drinking coffee today! I haven’t had much time to write lately, because the last couple of days have been quite busy. Like I said before, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts yesterday with a very special friend of mine. I happened to be in Boston anyway for a MIRA training (required for a class project), so it made sense that yesterday would be the day to go traveling. It was a really fantastic day, filled with calm energy and happiness and pure gratitude. I love looking at art, and it’s even better when you get to enjoy it with other people. We also had a lovely stroll around the city and got some food, so altogether, it was a really special day. Afterwards, I hung out with my friends for most of the night and saw a really interesting play called Vagina Monologues, which is all about girl love and embracing the female body. It was really inspirational; I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up a bit.

Anyway, I really need to get cranking on my ethics paper, so I’ll leave y’all with some pictures of my day. If you ever have the chance to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, I highly recommend it!
