Got this from a_phoenixdragon
and figured, eh, why not?
|You Are an Imaginative Thinker|
You are a nonlinear thinker, and you're even surprised by the places your mind takes you.
You love to get lost in a story, whether it's your own or not. You love fantasy.
You are a positive and uplifting person. You inspire others to be better.
You are full of wonder and curiosity. You feel a strong connection to the world.
Not sure if I should be surprised or not. ,:|
Since I'm here, I guess I might as well update any of you out there still wondering if I'm alive.
Spoiler alert! I am!
I got to go see my Lucy for Christmas and stayed through NYE and what a way to end the year! Unfortunately, I've been basically unemployed since then along with all the attendant depression and insomnia that follows me like a bad stink that's soaked into my pores. I've also had a chronic cough that showed up a few weeks later. My lovely Hive helped me get to the doctor finally, but the results were inconclusive. He gave me an antibiotic just in case and a sample of a nose spray, but neither really seemed to do anything. I suspect it's my asthma finally getting off its ass and mutating from "exercise induced" to "fuck you all the time" but I can't afford to go in again and see for sure, so I'm just trying not to do anything to trigger it in the meantime.
I joined the WIP Big Bang hosted by the lovely frea_o and shenshen77, but I chose my WIP badly (last year's NaNo) and it got out of control and couldn't be tamed before the deadline, so I had to withdraw. Still, it was a lovely experience, they are just darlings all around, and I'd like to try again next round if I can find a less insane WIP-shaped brick wall to bang my head against. And I did
make a great deal of progress on the story itself, so that's good.
My attempts to continue the Great Workout Streak of 2013 haven't yet been successful, but I've gotten over to the park lately to just wander and think and that's good. Well, the last time was terrible, so many things went wrong
the horrors! THE HORRORS!
but my not returning since then has been more about having to lay in siege against the Commies that invaded my fun house and the exhaustion and generally BLARGHness than anything else. I actually almost went one night anyway during a pause in the battles, but then my uterus decided that life wasn't worth living and tried to strangle itself.
I started learning French last year concurrent with the Great Workout Streak, but fell off that bandwagon at about the same time. I've been thinking about starting it up again. Maybe I'll do that this next week.
I also finally caved and joined The Fandom that Shall Not Be Named (no, not that
one, I joined that one YEARS ago and have no qualms about admitting I'm a Slytherin all the way, baby ;D). It's saddening because I really would LOVE to join this fandom, I haven't wanted to be in a fandom this much since, God, probably SG-1. But it's a toxic waste dump of terrible and I really can't handle that kind of bad in my life right now, so I talk to myself and my dog and watch repeats until my eyes bleed and read fanfic until I almost have to scream I want to comment so bad. Being a fandom hermit SUCKS, just FYI.
I think that's about it. Five months of my life summed up in as many short paragraphs, but ah well. Ç'est ma vie.
