Life is pretty good. I'm working a lot on cleaning my room, my desk, etc. up after a long time of letting them get cluttered, and I'm making considerable progress! I'm also searching (rather idly) for a summer job, out of a sense mostly of obligation since I'm going into senior year, although some spare money really would be nice. But summer is half over, so I think this is going to have to be more of a school year job, but oh well. I at least have all of next summer to make some more money before starting college. I wish my friends and I would meet up more often. We always say we want to meet up, but then don't take a lot of time into planning it. I also wish I had a boyfriend, but that's totally not happening until college. But besides those quibbles, my life's going pretty well. I feel like I'm actually doing something with my summer instead of spending the whole day vegging out watching TV. I want to be able to look back at the end of the summer and say that my life is better after this summer, which I think will happen. Also, I'm pretty excited because next Saturday I'm going to help my Nan bake some pies! We don't spend a lot of time together in person just the two of us, so it'll be nice, plus I get to practice some baking. But I have an e-mail message back from Pizza Hut asking for an interview, though they didn't specify a time, so I have to e-mail them back about that, though I'm scared that they'll think I'm not dedicated or whatever because it's been a bit since their first e-mail. But c'est la vie. Anyways, I'm going to go start lunch!

Illegitimi non carborundum!

I'm the eternal optimist but I'm going through one of the biggest changes in my life and so far it has not been very pleasant. I know there's better days ahead, there always is, but there's too much going on at once and I let myself get overwhelmed.

I have 10 days left of my regular working life. I've got pensions due from both the UK and US but the paperwork! Then there's the jumping through hoops for medicare and suppliments. I absolutely know I am going to get hammered for taxes and currency exchanges and I'm months behind with the timetable I set myself to get it all completed. That's mostly because my stupid body decided it was going to misbehave and cause me a lot of pain that physio and pain management have hardly been able to touch. Something to do with trapped nerves in my spine somewhere but my doctor seems confident it can be fixed.

A recent storm took my websites offline. The biggest outage I've had in 24 years of running them. I am besides myself with frustration. I'm keeping the files updated but can't publish to make them public and won't be able to for a few days yet.

The same storm did something to the gray water main drain. I really do hope I don't have to pay someone to come out and dig that up. It is not cheap.

Of course, my Green Card is up for renewal. Are you a miserable, rude, sorry excuse of humanity with no sense of humor and anger management issues? Join the US Immigration Service or whatever they're called now. You'll fit right in. They're even worse than the people who work for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The good news is that my brother and sisters are coming over from the UK to visit in a couple of weeks. I haven't seen them since before COVID hit.

Ever been to an English high tea or garden tea party? For years, every now and then, some of my friends say I should create one. With my family here it seems a perfect time to do it. We've already started collecting the teapots, cups, saucers and plates needed. There's also a couple of hundred feet of Union Jack bunting ready.

Well, that's what's going on with me. Back to normal in about a month maybe less.

life is pretty good! even though things get hard, i'm grateful that i'm in the place i am now because i have been in abusive situations/homeless/etc so i really can't complain. i live in a two bedroom apartment with my best friend and our pets, and it's been the most helpful thing for my mental health to just have a peaceful living situation with someone who cares about and respects me! i have my own room with all my things and a comfortable bed which is not something i've always had access to so i'm grateful. i'm in grad school right now to become a librarian, and it's a little hard because i graduated undergrad 10ish years ago but i'm doing my best! i really want to have an actual career that makes me happy, no more crappy min wage gigs or service jobs for me. i don't have a job currently because it's really hard for me to do the jobs i could potentially get (due to mental/physical disabilities) so money is nonexistent but i'm comfortable. i spend a lot of time being creative and playing video games when i'm not studying, and my social life has improved with my better mental health. i still have bad days but i have a really good emotional support system and things are getting better all the time :)

Currently i live with my mom and sis but very soon im going to move in my own tiny apartaments, just need to finish makeover and buy some stuff. Not happy with materials especially how kitchen turned out so i plan to rip stuff and replace it :)
As for life I just float on water without any direction and motivation, though sometimes this water boils as i get scared of stupid things. I hope to get into therapy and proper treatment asap.
Lost any passion for creative activity...Probably burned out or maybe its due health problems. But i want to try to get into makeup, bought some cheap palettes to experiment with. Sewing is next on the list of things to try to, just need to buy sewing machine x)
Also I struggle very mcuh with maintaining proper connections and loneliness and being outside in general so i try to put myself out more. It barely gives any results as i give up easily but i will try my best.
Really hope that living alone give me some insights and maybe bring creative motivation back...

I'm a CBRN defense specialist for the Marine Corp, I live in a barrack room it's like a small hotel room. I don't have much expenses. My life is pretty stress free I don't worry much unless I have to be somewhere or make a deadline. weekends are spent working on hobbies, biking, going out in town to dine somewhere.
I don't have a console at the moment or else my entire weekend would be playing Minecraft.

**I'm new to the fleet (I completed my MOS school and now I'm at my permanent duty station) so this is bound to change.**
 
here is my typical workday as a CBRN defense specialist of the Marine Corp.
I wake up very early in the morning, usually at 0500, I then go do physical training with my platoon (only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) (this is usually just running, pushups, pull ups, and more running) I get back to my barracks room around 0630, and I then change over to my utility uniform. I then get chow, which is typically 2 over easy eggs, a sausage patty, bread, cinnamon bun, banana, a cup of milk, salad, and sometimes I get yogurt. :chef:

I then go to my workplace at 7:30 and do one of the many things listed.
  • work on a presentation/class(I something I have yet to do, but expected to do)
  • go on a working party
  • office/computer work :pc:
  • instruct/present various CBRN defense equipment (so far, it's only been practice presentations)
  • clean up the workplace
and then I get a two-hour lunch break from 1100 to 1300 which I use to go to the gym, rest and eat chow (salads and Gatorade are the only things I consistently get for lunch, the rest just varies depending on the day-to-day menu).
I then resume my work until 1730. Once I'm finished, I get dismissed and I have liberty for the rest of the day, I then go get dinner at the chow hall and play videogames, call home, relax, browse the internet, and hangout with my brothers and sisters (other Marines). And then I go to sleep or stay up if I can't go to sleep (I then go get mid-night rations at the chow hall)
or I spend the entire day completing a training requirement or cleaning my rifle.
And if I get lucky, I get sent somewhere and my workday is completely different.

feel free to ask any questions about my career, my schedule, the Marine Corp, or my life. :cheesy:

At this moment, I'm sitting in my uni's laundromat, doing homework on my day off. I've got two essays and a film review to finish. I'm almost done with my Bachelor's, and am currently living on campus with my roommate. I'm applying to the online Master's program in a few weeks, and will hopefully get to move in with my fiance by 2024.

It's been rough - retail is hell - but I hope that the Master's program will help me kick off my career with its required internship. The struggle is real, but I refuse to accept the grind. I will hold onto the idea of a better tomorrow, despite how shit it is today.

i'm still in college, living on campus, doing pretty badly in my classes :/ honestly just waiting for my sleep specialist appointment next month (which i needed, like, months ago but shhh :tongue:) which will hopefully fix my grades along with my sleep schedule. found some new meds that'll tide me over until then if they work. i don't really care if i have to repeat the classes, even if getting bad grades sucks like hell. i'm already graduating late on my own accord.
i threw myself into updating my art site recently, and i'm mostly satisfied w it! layout still needs some tinkering, mostly for responsiveness, but i'll work on that along with the mountain of other pages i have planned.
i'm just barely feeling out what i want to do with my life. move out of country, maybe? definitely out of the suburbs. learn how to cook & sew, pick up another language or two, work somewhere decently fulfilling, & hopefully have a happy life.

Right now I am thriving! 2023 has been a great year for me, I've grown up a lot and finally started to feel like I am living more than just existing. When I graduated last year, I fell into a slump where I was staying at home all day every day, since I didn't have my license and was terrified to even try to learn how to drive.

In March of this year, I got my first job as a busboy. I was pretty slow and very anxious in the beginning, but over time I feel like I've become quite good at it, if I do say so myself  :ok:. My sister started teaching me how to drive on the way to work, and over the next few months I slowly started to relax and feel confident in my driving skills. I passed my driving test last week and got my license!

My mental health has also taken a turn for the better. I recognized some unhealthy behavior (spending all of my time online in circles full of negativity and discourse, wanting people to like me all the time and taking even the lightest bit of criticism to heart, feeling bad for enjoying things people deemed as "cringe") and started working on ways to improve my mental and physical heath by making changes (working out, leaving those online circles, enjoying the things that I like no matter how "cringe", doing things for myself and not just to seem likeable others).

My next goals for the future are to get a new job closer to where I live (hopefully one that's more enjoyable than cleaning tables, LOL), start taking college classes, and to figure out more about myself, what I like, what I want to do. I also want to make friends, since I'm coming more out of my shell instead of being isolated at home.

One year ago, I was the most depressed I've ever been. This year, I'm the most happiest I've ever been. I've still got a long ways to go, but I have my entire life ahead of me to accomplish everything I want to. I hope the future me who's reading this post is happy wherever she is :o).

:smile: Life is ok. I'm dating a lovely person rn who I love so dearly, but I'm also struggling with college LOL. It's okay though. I know I'll get through all of this and I have my partner and friends with me.

I found my old abandoned neocities account from when I was 17. I'm tempted to use it as a place to post my art and have journal entries. What does everyone else think? I know I could use my main site but journals and art posts feel like they wouldnt fit with my site and I like having everything organized. I'd probably have the old homepage from when I was 17 as a secret page for fun, I'd feel too bad just deleting it ya know.

I'm also not sure how exactly to make journal entries. Not like the content in them but like. the layout. I'll probably figure it out I'm just mainly worried about how many pages I'll need to make.
As for my art, I had a bad habit of not archiving my old art. Currently my only archive is a tumblr blog but I'm drifting away from tumblr. I need another place to place my art.

I'm currently watching Digimon with some of my friends. Easily one of the things I look forward to each weekend. I was also watching Twin Peaks with my partner but my schedule got clogged :sad: but I think we might be able to binge it during winter break which I gladly look forward to!

Going back to my partner, they really have improved my life I feel. Even on days that I'm miserable I still feel happy when I think about them, and having a mundane life with them. I hope I make them feel the same way. :transport:

Weird and odd really. I'm in my senior year of college and realizing I don't want to go into the field my degree is in, so I'm trying to break into farming. Having an existential crisis 24/7. Also my mom is terminally ill, and I'm struggling with really severe body dysmorphia, and I had cancer in 2022 so I'm always terrified of that coming back. But I'm pushing forward. I think my life right now is about trying to break away from the things I've been told and the way I've been raised and forge my own path, trying to tell myself that I am capable of doing things that I never believed I could for some reason.

I'm currently trying to enjoy a few days of vacation at my parents in France, before my flight to Finland on Tuesday morning. I'll be staying for the spring academic semester, in a small student town. Right now the mood varies from looking forward to that and anticipating the homesick panic attack I'll probably be having when I arrive, but I feel like at that point I can't give up, I must fight for a few days cause I know that's what it'll take to get used to it. I know my family and I will miss each other a lot, but that's for the better (makes sense in some way for me).
A few days ago, when saying goodbye to my grandparents, my grandfather held me close, and when I hugged him goodbye, I saw that he was on the verge of crying, so I hugged him tighter. This was very painful, I think he realises that he's old, and that he may not live long enough to see me come back and that's heartbreaking. I'll go see them tomorrow, and I hope not to stay too long, I don't want to make it harder for him.

If anyone from Finland, especially Kokkola, sees this, please reach out, I'd love to meet !

I am currently doing the IB programme and my exams are in may this year. As I'm trying to graduate and get admitted to an affordable but good school, I am hoping to leave behind the life I had lived and start a new, independent and lovely chapter. I am hoping with all of my heart that I am going to be in Italy next year around this time, starting my studies in psychology and making new friends. I am currently living in a small town with my parents and my brother had just had the chance to study in Germany this year after 3 years of attempts, I am hoping everyday that I don't end up like him but my grades make me doubt myself. I love listening to classical, jazz, broadway and vocaloid music right now, it is a weird but somehow not even an unpopular music taste that I've seen from my peers as well.

I live with my parents (!) and aunt. I'm studying music full time and play piano. I also write, take photographs and attempt to draw as an hobby, though I only ever draw in charcoal/pencil and I've given away most of my drawings. I also barely have a social life but I do live near a beach town so it's not all bad. I have a pretty one-sided relationship with my parents (with anyone really) so I keep to myself mostly; with the friends I do have we only really interact online. I think I might have CDS?

Anyways I've grown to really like free jazz, specifically Albert Ayler, and also  I like underground rap, I had a tin pan alley phase a while ago, and I like noise pop, big band swing, romantic Era music, basically I'm a huge music nerd. Also I'm just a nerd in general.

Currently I'm trying to juggle 3 hobbies while getting myself back into shape for the year.

Currently, I'm living with my dad, stepmom, and stepbrother in Puerto Rico, though I visit my mom and sister in Florida about every month. I recently went back to college for game design, and am currently taking it slow with only one class, but it's been really exciting to get that back on track. I'm hoping to make new connections there! I usually go out on weekends with my family, too. I spend a lot of my free time in the week online, playing games, or drawing, though I hope to get back into skateboarding.

It's kind of a slow life overall, for now, but I'm very optimistic for the future.
