Dory [Disney], Dorey!

Hello everybody!

Hello Doctor Nick!

My last post was basically along the lines of "brain exploded, bai" and since it's been about a year and a half since that happened I thought I'd give a brief update on how things are going!

Which is well. Ever since the breakdown (it was a breakdown, unfortunately, that December was rougggggggggh) things have been going incredibly, awe-inspiringly well! I got a new job as an assistant librarian this year, my mood is more stable than it's ever been and I just feel really good about life most of the time. And, most importantly of all...

I'M GETTING MARRIED!!!! To be exact, I'm getting married in 9 days and 194 hours at this point. Being engaged has been, by far, the best experience of my life and I've really enjoyed every single moment of it. The dress shopping, the cake shopping, the looking around venues... Everything, even the stuff that should've been stressful, has been the absolute best ever. I think because I know I am doing absolutely the right thing. I am marrying my best friend, the love of my life, my favourite person who has ever existed. I am marrying P, who has stood by me through so much and who still loves me through everything. <3333333

I still have an anxiety disorder, of course, and I always will. But it doesn't matter. It can tell me that I'm going to ruin everything, and numerous other terrible things besides, as many times as it wants. But I haven't yet, and it doesn't look at all likely that I'm going to do so now. I'm happy, I'm BEYOND satisfied and quite frankly the anxiety can go fuck itself. It's tried its worst, and it still doesn't have me. :D

...So, yes! I'm not sure how many people are still on here - livejournal is owned by our unfortunate Russian overlords now, right? - but I thought I'd just post a brief update on how my situation is at the moment. Which is prettyyyyy goooooooood, as my P would say. <3

I'm not quite sure how to say this, so I'm going to be brief and to the point. My anxiety has flared up really, really badly and has gotten to the point where I think that heavy exposure to the internet is doing me a LOT more harm than good. I'm thus going to cut my internet usage as much as I can, and try to step back from it a little.

I might be back one day, who knows! But... I will be honest, I'm hoping not to be. Browsing the internet, which is full of angry people and bad opinions, all day is not at all good for me and I think being away from it will be a LOT better for my mental health.

I'll definitely be around to comment on my Yuletide story, if possibly a few days late, but other than that? Well... Yeah.

Hope you're all good, guys, and I hope you continue to be so in the future. <3

Timestamp meme

I last did this almost a year ago, so seems about time to do it again!

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll try to write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Reading Review Post VIII: Reviewed Read Reviled

Hi, it's me again! :DD

This is officially my eighth reading review post of the year, taking the total up to 200 books. 200 books! That's about double my goal for the year, so I'm absolutely and utterly thrilled with how that has all turned out. I've definitely exceeded my expectations for this year, and I look forward to sharing the results with you.

Normal rules are still in effect. Things I really like and would rec are marked with a +, things I really didn't like and would thus anti-rec are marked with a -.

Now, on with the show and I hope you enjoy!

So, yes, indeed! That's another reading review post done, and I can now say that I'm up to 200 books! Which is, uh, a LOT more than I was expecting.

I've still been reading, obviously, and so hopefully I'll manage to squeeze at least one more post out before the end of the year and then a post to finish off all that I've read in 2016 around the beginning of 2017 (which is terrifyingly close). I won't promise anything, because I'm again worried about dropping off the face of the planet for another few months, but I'd like to continue recording all that I've read just so I have my thoughts all in one place.

Hope you enjoyed, again! :D

Reading Review Post VII: The Secret Review

Hello, and welcome to my seventh reading post of the year! I'm writing this a few weeks in advance, so for all I know the ants could've taken over now and declared all books irrelevant, but at present moment books are still in vogue and this is my next set of reviews for them.

This post should take me up to 175 books read this year, which is comprehensively more than last year and a total that I'm rather pleased with. Ones I'd recommend are marked with a +, ones I'd anti-rec are marked with a -.

On with the show! :D

So, yes! That takes me up to 175 books read this year. And, thankfully, a good chink of them enjoyed at that!

I'm still hopelessly behind on these, so am hoping to get a few more posts along these lines out before the new year. God knows if I'll manage it, work will probably continue to be busy (and hopefully continue to be nice), but it's good to have GOALS.

Hope you enjoyed! :)

Currently Reading Wednesday XLIV: Thanks Readbama

Just Finished: Black Widow, Vol. 1: S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Most Wanted. Which was good! But, uh, not very inventive and often disappointingly dull as a result.

Currently Reading: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling! Only a chapter in so far, though.

Coming up: apparently the next Blake and Avery book is arriving tomorrow. So, you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be reading that as soon as possible. <33

Reading Review Post VI: The Review Wolf

Hello, and welcome back to a long overdue feature! The last time I did one of these reading review posts was before I started my new job, which was... Gosh, exactly three months ago now? WHICH IS A WHILE. Obviously my comment about keeping a more regular schedule turned out to be a filthy lie, for which I can only apologise.

But hopefully this'll make up for it! This post should take me up to 150 books read this year. Ones I really liked, and thus would recommend, will be marked with a +. Ones I really disliked, and thus would really not recommend, will be marked with a -

I hope you enjoy!

So, that's up to 150 books read this year! Whatever shall happen next?

Well, I can tell you exclusively right now that I am hella behind again so there may well be a lot of posts like this in the relatively near future. I'm not sure if I'll be able to churn out many, I hesitate to commit to anything for fear of dropping off the face of the internet for another three months and thus failing out of this year entirely, but I'm going to try and catch up as soon as I can. There are a lot of books still to be mumbled over reviewed, after all!

Hope you enjoyed! :)
