The past 6 months for me have been an emotional oscillation between "this normie life might not be so bad after all" and "what am I doing I have no idea I am clearly unqualified to be normie".

Not sure if I should be hoping/striving for convergence in 2019.

@kureshii Been having a similar journey this year. The first half was all "actually, this ain't so bad". Then the novelty wore off, and the sacrifices necessary to cut it as a normie started taking their toll.

Next year will be looking for an exit strategy, but first I'll need some recovery time.
