That sounds so 😤 but honestly it's more 🙆. For one thing, I'm getting the hang of this spinster business (both figuratively and literally), but it does mean if I'm the one who is staying in the family home, keeping my mum company while living my life, then i have to stop looking at my quarters as a place to graduate from. That's just a really roundabout way of saying I went to Ikea to get some more storage options, and also actively thinking of using the space beyond just my room (and kitchen. :D).
But you know, since the last I've posted here, how has my life been? Going steady on the professional side, while having a bit of turbulence in my mental state, though nothing i can't handle for now, even if i slip a little here and there. For one thing, it's nice to put a name on why that is, namely ADHD (only self-diagnosed), but I'm pretty much highly functioning so let's be thankful for the little things. When I came home, I wanted to do more theatre, but aside from that initial burst, I've quieted down. no luck yet with the auditions i've been going, but i did enjoy having to do them, because i've been so ridiculously out of practice. I still haven't got back to doing standup either, and I really really should. I say this every year. I've made friends from saying this every year. Imagine if I actually do it.
Writing-wise, I've resumed some fanfic writing. Hell, I even went back to anonmeme fic wip, which i still haven't finished, and i'm fully blaming ramadhan for. i'm gonna count posting to metafilter as well, and in that i've been quite prolific
, especially in the last year, what the hell. that aside, i keep seeing tweets and notices for calls for submission with envy, because i haven't written anything worth submitting. on the other hand i am writing stuff for work internally, and speaking of work, i'm bracing myself for our move to putj next year augh. i am not joking i'm planning to sleep in the train and shower at work.
[oh shit tht reminds me some guy who writes for n*j*b's website gave me his card and i can't fucking remember where the heck i put it.]
in any case, one of my throwaway jokes is now gonna bite me in the ass. to wit:
and suddenly i have ppl interested to join me. *expires gently*
i'm cutting down to 10 minutes, and we're calling it Talk Is Cheap. See you at the Cooler Lumpur Festival, sometime in August (i think 19th to the 20th?)
and getting back to the entry title, my bestie has reminded me to start a wishlist for this year. without fail, i will not do this, but without fail she will hound me until i decide on a birthday gift. it's an efficient system, when you think about it.
