- My back feels better
- My throat feels better
- I got a slow start, but I did a decent amount of work today
- Sparkly is very busy but doing ok

I have to / get to go to the library tomorrow, because my books are due and the website seems to be down, so I can't renew them. 

Lots of stuff is is happening with the Graham-Cassidy bill, and I'm sort of trying to stay informed without spending too much time worrying about it. So far that's been leaning towards "not informed." 

Sparkly comes home in 15 days, which simultaneously seems like not very long and a really long time. We text all the time, and in some ways it's not unfamiliar, because we were long-distance for a long time, but I really miss em.

I had a quiet day today, which was good. I did some cleaning in the bathroom, washed a lot of dishes, and cooked a nice dinner. Cube Guy liked my soup! I made it with chicken this time. 

Also I just watched John Cena cry a little bit on live not-actually-tv and I'm having an unexpected amount of Feelings.

AGE: 28 (29 on October 3rd though)
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Tom Hiddleston, Pokemon, All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Simple Plan, visual kei/J-rock, oldies music, writing, fangirling.
LOOKING FOR: Nothing special. I don't really mind because I'm accepting of everyone. :3
ANYTHING ELSE?: I lost the account info for my old DW. I think it was AdorbzFangirl or something. But yeah. I figured it was better just to start over. Keep in mind too, that I won't be very active. I'm pretty much limited to my dad's computer (on occasion) to my iPad Pro. My laptop stopped functioning properly, and if Apple can't fix it... it may be a while before I can get another one. :|

Oh! I forgot to mention that I'm autistic. There's a good chance I won't reply to other people's journals. It puts a lot of pressure on me and my social skills. I'll do my best to post on yours, but I expect the same in return. :3
So yeah.

 My Friday and Saturday:

- sore throat
- hurt my back
- internet & tv out
- library closed
- cafe intolerably loud
- stressful conversations with landlord about internet
- minor argument with Sparkly

The internet is working, the landlord is placated (and will be out of town next week, which is an extra relief), I had a good conversation with Sparkly, and my back is feeling better. I got almost no work done both Friday and today, but I did do some cleaning and laundry, at least. I'm relieved but tired.

 Sparkly's team got to their new location safely. Cube Guy is going to be out of town this weekend. He took today and tomorrow off work for something that got cancelled, but he's decided at the last minute to plan a new trip. This weekend I need to remember to go to the library and return A Fisherman of the Inland Sea before it's overdue. I also need to get back to looking at apartments.

 My throat hurts and I'm Tired, but I had a good day. Work was boring, cats are good. Tomorrow Sparkly's team is relocating from just-south-of-Jacksonville to actually-in-Jacksonville. Ey seems to be getting along well with eir boss, which is wonderful.

Today I captioned an interview with a woman who runs an after-school theater program and had a lot of feelings about "shyness" and public speaking. Theater is great. Music is great. Being in the pit orchestra for the school musical was hands down the best thing I did in high school. But the way some people talk about kids "coming out of their shells" rubs me the wrong way.

The average Linux user should just admit they're actually an x11 user in denial.

 All is well and I'm very tired even though I didn't really do anything today. I went grocery shopping and played computer games, that's it. Maybe I'll kick the cats out of the bedroom and actually sleep in tomorrow morning.

 I have a purring cat in my lap and a lot of good fiction in my life. I finished A Fisherman of the Inland Sea and really enjoyed it. It's cool to learn a little more about the "Hainish" setting. The titular story was amazing, and so was "Dancing to Ganam". 

Also Sparkly is sending me fic recommendations, and this updated so of course I'm having all the feelings in the world. Sparkly is still in Jacksonville and still doing well.

 Sparkly is busy but doing well. The only news I got from em today is that part of eir group got split off and sent to Miami instead. 

I've started looking at apartments again. There are plenty of good prospects, but I need to talk to Sparkly in detail about exactly how much we can afford, because I don't know exactly what some of eir expenses are.

Tomorrow's to-dos include taking out the trash and actually getting more toilet paper.

Pop culture, feminism, etc.

 Sparkly is well. Today I went to the grocery store mainly for toilet paper, and ended up getting everything on the list except the toilet paper. But I did get some work-work and some housework done, and now Zinfandel-cat is sitting on me and purring, so things are pretty good.

Sparkly is in a hotel near Jacksonville, after a day of complicated logistics, getting eir group of 50-ish people and all their luggage, equipment and vehicles across the state. Ey is very pleased to have an actual room and an actual bed tonight.

I had a very calming day of captioning Bob Ross-esque how-to videos about watercolor painting.
