    June's Journalberry

    June 4th, 2015

    I never thought to do this, but it seems like it might be a good idea. Though I probably have a lot of journals as I think of it...But I'm a ditz. I've always been one, and as a clumsy, ditzy person, I'm just gonna accept the idea I might have a lot of these across the net and make one anyway. Because I don't remember where the rest are. If I didn't have my computer showing me the date, I'd probably forget it was June. [Oh hey! June! My name! xD]

    My girlfriend's birthday is this month. I'm still struggling to write a poem for her card. I always do that- make derpy comics with poems of some sort in them as makeshift cards. I have two weeks left. I should probably hurry...

    But today's just an annoying day, ne? My dad ordered an arm sling/shoulder brace of sorts from the pharmacy yesterday. It won't be available until tomorrow, even though they told us today would work. I missed an appointment with my new neurologist- a starting appointment. And I STILL haven't heard back from the pain management clinic about starting with them. Seriously, why hasn't she called me back? Is she uncertain since she treats my dad? But...But...ugh ;-;

    Oh, and dad may or may not have severe problems right now because he's on a huge ton of medication including two new ones. He's not sure what the cause is, but he's decided to stop the diet aid now. Which I'm sorta glad for but at the same time I still worry. But...At least he's not fainting or anything. That'd be a bad trip down memory lane...

    Er...BAD ME. STOP BEING DEPRESSING. This may be a journal, but I'd rather not depress myself later when I reread this. Soooo...Um...Happy thoughts time?

    1. Restarted coming on here! Yaaay! Maybe this is a new chapter in life? Or...something?
    2. Debating making a page for myself on Facebook. Like an artist's page. I already have an account, that's separate. >w< It's just likely wayyy easier to have just one page for all my stuff than making pages for separate projects.
    3. My newest project is so far going smoothly. I'm getting good input from readers and friends. Daiki's getting lots of hugs. xD
    4. A new Harvest Moon game was announced that'll be on PC! This is a whole new era of excitement!
    5. I'm hoarding nifty stuff on DA that's meant to be used in Manga Studio 5 in case I ever get it. I wish I could find more comipo stuff, though...

    It's been a while June, what sort of projects are you working on these days?
    Drawings, writings? Could we have see/read a sample?

    I'm sure you're better than you think at poetry. You'd have to give me a month to write something. I'm sure it'll be fine. Ah, so the health service there is just as unreliable as here? Sorry to hear about what's going on. I know all about waiting a long time for a call back. Anyway, journals are journals, don't worry about venting or ranting, seriously.

    There's no reason why you shouldn't create that Facebook page. In addition, make use of the Starwind & Hawking forum. To reiterate Asher's post, I'd like to see your projects and give feedback! Also, every so often there are Comipo deals on Steam. I almost got Manga Maker once, but decided to pass.

    I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to chat in the journal, so...Looks like it's time to send some PMs, since now i have things to say to people directly! GASP!

    And today was an okay day. I did almost forget what year it was two seconds ago, but...It was nice and uneventful otherwise. I haven't gotten much done, but I've had a lot of support lately and it makes me happy. Now...If dad's shoulder would heal faster, that'd be nice. So, so nice...But he should be fine tomorrow. Which means tomorrow, we see my grandmother for another BBQ to celebrate her successful surgery!

    My uncle is going away soon. I mean, for a month, out of the country. He's visiting his relatives in Israel, but because he usually does most of the work helping my grandmother, I'm sorta worried. On the other hand, she's gonna be taking a couple weeks across the country visiting other relatives too during that time...But...Considering my uncle called us just to get out of being badgered by his girlfriend and my granny...I can't help but wonder if there's a lot of tension from all the change right now. o.o;

    But at least my uncle gets to see his grandbaby! I wanna see the baby too. :c

    You're sort of right. It's been three years so I forgot about the rules somewhat. However, you are allowed to respond to others' comments as long as your next post afterwards is another journal entry. Yeah, if it turns into a chat it's probably best to take it to PM.

    I hope you enjoy the BBQ. I'm so goddamn jelly. My parents never do anything and they haven't had a BBQ in probably nearly a decade. It's been almost that long since I've been to one. Interesting entry and I look forward to the next!

    So...I realized this morning when I woke up, "HEY IT'S THAT GUY'S BIRTHDAY!" and proceeded to realize I haven't heard from him in our email chat for like two months. By 'this guy', of course, I'm talking about my long term friend/ex-boyfriend from childhood. We've been friends since we were ten. We're [awkward] friends now. We chat a lot in email, or were...And he suddenly disappeared. Considering our last email was about trying to get him to stop working himself to the bone, it sorta makes me worry. But he might've also just forgotten or something. Meh. I'll just leave it.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't go to the BBQ at my grandmother's yesterday, and it seemed to cause a problem with her. See, it seems my grandmother had a fight with my aunt [who she's supposed to visit next month/later this month]. And then, because dad's in worse shape from the medicine problems and taking his chemotherapy [FUN FACT: the chemotherapy drug Methotrexate is used for more than just cancer. It's also great for autoimmune diseases like psoriatic arthritis!]...So he was stuck in bed all day, and I was exhausted from an anxiety attack and stuff.

    I've come to hate the neighbors Roomba, guys. My bed is a mattress on the floor, and when it's running in the middle of the night, it's sound gets through the walls to under my bed and makes it sound like rats are scurrying around under my pillow. It's freaky as hell. Saturday night, I couldn't sleep for HOURS because it was scaring me. I moved my pillows around a bunch to try to make sure nothing was there. I think I lifted my mattress too. Besides the usual dust, no bugs or mice or raccoons in sight. Seriously roomba. SOUND LIKE SOMETHING ELSE. *cries*

    Well, today's an easy day at least. Going to the doctor for our usual check up...Gonna ask him about his input on CFS [chronic fatigue syndrome] since it's suuuper similar to Fibromyalgia and seems like it'd fit just as much, if not more, for us. I mean, I read the conditions info on the government site...It's like they were just writing down half my life in a list. Literally, I'm the textbook definition of CFS. Now if it just didn't mimic Fibromyalgia so closely...Dangit. ;-; Oh well. Either way, it makes me feel less annoyed at my balance problems. [Wait, no it doesn't].

    Oh. And I forgot my own anosmia today and tried to smell some of my laundry to see if it was clean or not. You know you're out of it when you forget you can't smell and go for it anyway expecting something. Congenital Anosmia, I thought I was used to you, but apparently 23 years isn't enough time to keep in mind that smelling stuff isn't gonna happen. But at least it doesn't change my gigglefits at the Mr. Sketch commercials with the blueberry farting to make blueberry scented markers?


    UPDATE:
    Something amazing happened this afternoon. I finally got my prize from a contest that was like last year that I've been waiting on due to the whole 'needing the steam version of ComiPo thing'. Now i can make some fantasy stuff on Steam <3

    My uncle is officially leaving for Israel tonight, and sadly, dad and I didn't get to go say goodbye...So I won't be seeing him for at least a month. But, it's good for him to go. After all, that's where his family [including his adorable granddaughter, my newest/youngest cousin] is. I just hope he got to say bye to my youngest older cousin who lives here in the states first. His only son and he have always been close. I was close with him too, but...It's been a long time since I've had the urge to call him 'big brother'. ^^;

    My dad found our old TENS/STEM unit the other day, and he's been using it a lot for his arm that is still troubling. We realized part of the problem may be hormonal though. Joking aside, I do seriously think he has a sort of 'sympathetic' period related to mine, sorta like how when my mom was pregnant with me, he had similar symptoms due to sympathetic pregnancy. So...Sorry dad, you got your period with me. Oops. [But he seriously always knows before me when I'm getting mine. It's both convenient and worrying...]

    Two days ago now, I started playing a new game, compliments of OSN's lovely admin Mantis. Yep, Mantis is so nice he gave me a game to play [and we can play together sometimes now too]! It's strangely addictive. I'm finally taking a break to work on writing some prep details for July. Because you know what July is...Oh, you don't do you? Since you're a journal I just started. Woops. July is CAMP NANOWRIMO! It's like NaNoWriMo, but more relaxed, and twice a year. And I'm super excited for this year. I'm gonna try to see if I can get OSN friends to join in too- I'm getting one of my other writing friends who never felt comfortable trying to do it. And I'm so excited!!!

    Well, games are fun and useful, though. I have so many ideas from playing Orange Juice. Like a little thief-like character [who I'm totally gonna have be a really young looking older lady/older man that likes to pretend their an elementary schooler or something]. It'll be funny writing a wanted poster for them. But first I should really get the setting down. And maybe, y'know, not procrastinate on the characters so much. Kelly may be ready but...Rikuo and Aylen are pretty pissed I've ignored them for so long.

    Anywho...Also should get some comicking done. What should I torture Daiki with next...

    Later lovely journal and journal readers x3

    It was my girlfriend's birthday today. Yep! Major deal to me, for a lot of reasons. But...I only sent her her card via Steam now [it's a comic with a beyond-corny poem that I almost regret sending at all. Just looking at it makes me cringe. BUT I MEANT WELL SERIOUSLY. But the corniness of it...Ugh]. It's about 11PM my time on her birthday...So at least it was her birthday But...Her computer started lagging soon afterwards, so I haven't gotten her reaction yet. Ugh. I'm so nervous. WHY AM I SO NERVOUS.

    Uh, right, anyway...Um...Hormones are back to more normal standards. So no more hating my hormones for now. Buuut I missed getting to see the new psychiatrist today. I plan to call tomorrow to have the special car service I get free with my insurance to bring me [and my dad, who has an appointment with him at the same time]. Hopefully that'll make dad more inclined to go since part of his problem was being out of it from food poisoning [and the other major part: agoraphobia].

    But yeah. We both had some food poisoning today. Our turkey went bad. I mean, cold cut turkey. We got it a few days ago and it was already bad apparently. So yeah. That explains some of the gut ickiness.

    On the bright side...Having fun online was the same and awesome as usual. And look at all the new people on OSN today!

    Here's to hoping the message I'm getting on FB from my girlfriend right now is a good sign about the card. Hoping.

    I don't journal enough. If I did, maybe I'd remember things like how I have naturally low blood pressure...and that part of my caffeine addiction was because I needed it to not be constantly dizzy. It might also help my anxiety. But no, I stopped journaling a lot again. And all I got for it was a random panic attack from agoraphobia...Because I had to go to my therapist!?

    Yep. Yesterday sucked. I was fine on Monday. I got called to get a reminder 'hey you have to come in for therapy' and I was totally fine with it. Yesterday, I was totally fine...Until around 1:30 when it was time to get ready to go. Then, it started. Shakes, shivers, my heart racing...I started bawling like a baby and I just couldn't calm down! It took dad a few hours to get me calm enough to take a nap to let it wash away [because with panic attacks, even if I finally stop crying an hour later, it'll just magically start up again within a few minutes]. I think I slept until around 10PM...Then I woke up, watched some TV and passed out by 2AM again for like six hours.

    I'm okay today though! Today I'm fine. I mean, my dizziness was way worse than yesterday [and it was bad, yesterday]...But dad pointed out I stopped drinking soda [because we ran out] and that might be the cause. And what's funny is I was totally confused! He literally had to point out, "You do realize you have low blood pressure naturally right? That's why the caffeine helped?" ...Then it hit me like a ton of bricks and he gave me half a pill of caffeine so it was like about a cup of coffee worth [because blargh coffee]. And now? I don't feel like the world is spinning insanely fast an hour later! I also managed to write almost a thousand words of novel for Camp. Not quite a thousand yet, but I'M GETTING THERE. And it feels totally awesome.

    ...And just think. Soon, I get to torture these characters constantly. That'll be fun. Because if you didn't already know, I'm totally sadistic when it comes to the little people in my head I call 'characters'. I'll take all the pent up stress from yesterday's panic attack on them soon enough~.

    Well, time to go lurk OSN instead of writing. I'm so good at staying productive...not.

    I'm sorry to hear about yesterday and it's good you're feeling fine today! Keep working on that novel and let us know how it's going. (I'm demanding this, so you'll stay productive!)
