: The Phases and Faces of Hypomania
Imagine that every obstacle that comes your way is minimised. You’re a giant Super Mario, the obstacles are the same size essentially but feel more like minute lumps in the road. What was once a 3ft wall is now merely a texture difference in the tarmac.
Problem solving is not a challenge. Everything is obvious. You just do this or that and you don’t just do it, you do it at the speed of light. You have To-Do lists longer than your arm and they still can’t keep up with you rather than the other way around. Ideas come in an abundance.
The best bit isn’t the constant flow of ideas. The best bit is that they all feel entirely achievable, realistic and exciting; they range from becoming a world-renowned musician, setting up an empire of a business and cracking the comedy circuit because let’s face it, I’m hilarious. I’m going to achieve it all whilst I’m a student so I’m prepared to work even harder to earn the masses of money I’m going to bring in. You call it bringing back the bacon. I’m bringing back the pig farm and you better believe it. The cherry on the top? It’s going to be effortless.
