Really sorry about your kitty. Losing your little friend is extremely traumatic, particularly in the way that this happened -- so unexpectedly. Thankfully you've got a dad who loves you so much and you are able to 'lean in on him' when this happened.

In other words, some days are better than others, and just when you think things are really bad, things turn around and something nice happens to you. :-)
Good to know that you have a personal journal....do you know that the most successful people in the world keep journals? It's a way of checking in with you inner self to make sure that you document all that is good in your life, and touch on some things that you might like to change in your life. Sounds as though you have the personality and characteristics of being one of those successful people.
I have recently started taking my blood/sugar readings and I was shocked to see how a little rice on my sushi yesterday affected my blood/sugar readings! Holy cow --- I'm not eating anymore rice --- even a few tablespoons took me right out of ketosis which resulted in me having a more emotional day. It's amazing how sensitive our little bodies can be to something as simple as rice or unhealthy oils.
Good luck with your job interview Tuesday ---- pull your beautiful, smart self together and show them what a great asset you will make to their organization. Life is short and it sounds as though you are climbing up the ladder of success --- put your butterflies and self-doubts in your pocket --- the world is waiting for you and you've got so much to offer!
Best to you! /Lu
