There is one variable I completely ignored when I decided to turn around: myself. And all I had personally invested in time, emotion, money, and what I was going away from. So here I am, back to square 1, in a spiteful society, longing for the lonesomeness of the sea, angry at myself. I don’t think I’ll turn notifications on for this spot; it’s not worth spreading. But I guess I continue to feel down.

I’ve ripped the plumbing for the aft internal ballast system, trying to figure out a solution to resolve leaks. Other than that, I’m making zero progress.
