-tl;dr I'm lurking sporadically but not really available for entire conversations/roleplays because life is happening a lot lately.
I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm okay. <3 Very busy lately, this week they had me working a couple of full day shifts that started at 7 AM - which meant I had to wake at 6 to catch the bus on time, and that. Is exhausting. Yawning just thinking about it, gods… but it's so worth it. Wow, the things there are to learn - I feel like I might go into Vet Tech training already having more experience medicating the "exotic" animals I want to work with than my peers (basically anything that's not a cat, dog, or livestock - so birds, fish, and many small mammals).
But, my nocturnal-by-nature body is still adjusting to the schedule (which is basically "sleep when you can" now, nap time included), my stomach is being horrendous to me lately, and I'm going to bother my managers sometime within the next week about possibly getting health insurance through the company. Because I kinda might end up needing it soon… (Nothing serious - at least… no more "serious" than my usual problems. Just… more often lately and it's getting harder to eat normally again. lP I ate at a buffet today, though, and so far my stomach's handling it pretty well. After… total digestive chaos two days ago and not eating since, so, I dunno. 8P )
Also, I got my temporary license a couple days ago. Did I mention that before...? I think I did, yeah. But... ........driving. Yeah. Today my neighbor took me driving again and it was easier on the streets, at a pace of 10-20 miles per hour, because… I don't know, it was smoother and the things happening were less disjointed? *Shrugs* Begrudingly, I am learning how to drive a car. …………joy.
Still thinking about you guys and hoping you're not overly worried. <:3 I really want to talk to people soon. Maybe in the evenings, assuming I don't work closing shifts…
For now I'm too tired to think and a touch too dazed with digestion to socialize… but just know that I'm still thinking about you, and I love you guys as much as ever. Work and sleep will never be more important than you. I just… can't provide quality company at this very moment. Frayed from people, need to meditate. Hence the update, making sure you guys know that I still hold you very dear in my heart. <3
