  • (Am I ever going to forgive the FFVII:AC subs for not having that line? NOPE.)

  • I had my sign language exam yesterday! And a resit from my previous sign language exam that I messed up! ... Did I mention that I'm doing sign language? Did I mention that I failed my last exam? It was by two points, it was honestly just a relief that I hadn't autofailed it that I didn't even mind. I... Apparently looked like I was crying for the resit (I was a little?), and my fingerspelling wasn't very fluid, but I did okay? Maybe? And after my actual exam he specifically said that I didn't do anything wrong, which is not the same as getting anything right but is CLOSE ENOUGH. Everyone keeps asking when i'll get my results and legit I forgot to ask because I am just so relieved that I'm done! I feel lighter! And happier! This is so nice!

  • (Me, yesterday, talking about the week where my mental health was just NOPE: Yeah, I don't know whether it was hormones or exam stress or overwork, or being ill, but all of those have gone none and I feel SO MUCH BETTER!
    Lex: ... Maybe it was all of them.)

  • I only have like four extra shifts this months! This is NONSENSE and by nonsense I mean...Holy shit, my schedule looks empty. I worked FLAT OUT in May (I sure did work all but three working days in May and all but five working days in June, and I sure did collapse the first time I had a day off in June, which took me out of... Almost everything, So my schedule being this open is... Weird. Super weird. But it's nice, I approve, I am going to use it to play all of the video games, transcribe all of the Fangirl Happy Hour (it's a short episode this week! This is either going to be a breeze or take me EIGHT YEARS for no reason and there is literally no way to know until I get there.), and... Review some things! Maybe write some stories! I am so excited about this and it feels really nice, like all of my batteries have been replaced and I can maybe fit in everything that I want to do!

  • It probably helps that I've been going to bed at the same time as Lex recently (mostly; he had a night out with his work friends and I accidentally stayed up until 4am playing The Sexy Brutale) so I have been going to bed around 23:30 every night. It's weird! But also kinda nice! But also I have been waking up around 6:30 and just... Rolling around in the being warm and in a sunbeam because I'm not actually awake enough to get out of bed.)

  • I have been aggressively stickering my diary because stickers are a REALLY GOOD WAY for me to track progress and what I've been doing. ALl of my writing stickers and basic looking-after-myself stickers haven't been getting any play for the last couple of weeks, so I guess I'm getting back to functional adulthood, wish me luck.

She is sixty-three, and not only does she use selfie correctly in conversation, but when I'm bragging about my new haircut she tells me to whatsapp her a selfie so she can see it. She is adorable.

Also I gave my mum access to my steam library (Jill and Lex also have access, because you can share it with up to five people; it's useful for when I want to lure them into things!) so she can play Gone Home and Gravity Ghost, and when I phone her she tells me how she's getting on. She says next time I visit I need to help her with the bits she's stuck on, and I can't tell if this is social bonding, a prompt for me to point her to gamefaqs or something (I am not going to attempt to explain video tutorials) or if I should tell her about the cool thing I found out that you can do on Steam where you can let someone come and watch your game as you play, because then she can just SHOW me where she's stuck.

She's also playing Epistory, which she appears to like but I have no idea how she's playing it because my mum is not known for her typing skills. I guess it's a good way to learn, as it's a fantasy typing game...?
