Hello, new and old readers of my journal alike! This post should cover some useful things.

About me )

About this journal )

Fannish and writing things )

Final note )
randomling: River Song (of Doctor Who) behind bars. (river song)
And not doing it.

I suppose this is because I feel a bit like my life is essentially quite boring. I'm currently freelancing, and trying to work my way up into at least decent part-time hours without falling over, which is proving challenging because I fall over at the least little bit of stress.

(And I mean last week was almost a complete bust because of this and this week is all about the recovery.)

I'm still learning German. I think I'm getting a bit more fluent. I'm trying to get a handle on what kind of future I might have. That's a bit difficult, because depressed-brain is still a bit prone to saying "NONE LOL" and predicting that my health issues will kill me in a few years so what's the point. So some days even looking at the future without cringing away in fear is really hard, and most days, let's be honest, I don't really bother.

Money stuff is going a bit better since I got new budgeting software about six months ago. It's really making it much eaiser to plan ahead and figure out what I need to do with my money. It also helps that I'm earning some. Not a huge amount yet, but more than I was on JSA.

I'm RPing a lot, and thinking a lot about my characters without actually doing much writing on the novel or anything else (despite mostly making it to writing dates each week). The problem is there's so much I want to make a priority, and having limited energy and limited time and all the rest of it (really the energy is more of a problem than anything else), it gets really hard to prioritise and decide what I actually want to focus on.

Not sure what else to talk about. I'm keeping up with Doctor Who, though I'm really ragey at Moffat for various reasons. I'm occasionally reading fic and being a bit anxious about Yuletide nominations. I'm still not really reading printed books very much, though I'm reading a lot of articles in Pocket instead. Not sure why I'm finding books so hard but that's been ongoing for... a couple of years?

I am trying to diversify a bit socially, but coming up against the same old demons of "you've had depression for the past six years and you managed to nuke 90% of your social circle". Which makes me feel guilty about trying to renew old friendships and anxiousa about trying to start new ones. It's awesome.

I think that might be about it for now!
randomling: Lance Bass of *nsync, wearing shades and grinning, looks up and to the right. (lance shades)
These are quite useful it turns out! (Cut because I would imagine mostly dull.)

Three tiny things forever )
randomling: River Song (of Doctor Who). The text "expect fireworks" is displayed. (expect fireworks)
Three tiny things. Then three more tiny things. And on we go with our day.

I think I might be done forever. :(

NB: Cutting Nine Worlds content for comfort of people who read me. If it's more comfortable to unsub while I'm talking about it, amnesty is granted - actually usub amnesty is permanet, but I'm pointing it out in this case. (Also, if asked I will happily inform individual people who ask when I am done writing about the con.)

So, Nine Worlds )

randomling: Dana Scully (The X-Files) (scully)
Instead of sitting around going "oh woe is me, I never see anyone and have no social life", I actually reached out to someone I want to hang out with.

Result: having dinner with said someone + new people on Friday night.

Outcome: victory over my brain! Take that, depression!

This is a big overwhelming list which is probably going to be overwhelming and then turn into maybe putting things on Trello?

Big list of big )

That'll do for now...
randomling: Peter Bishop (Fringe) ponders something. (peter)
So there's a lot of old stuff from my old hard drive that needs airing out and shaking vigorously and turning into useful notes so I can maybe one day get some of it written.

Under the cut: I go through the old bunny list and make semi-coherent notes.

Content note for mention of (my own) transphobia and child sexual abuse.

In which I air my dirty laundry )

Ooh this was useful.

I should do more processing.
randomling: Dana Scully (The X-Files) (scully)
I keep meaning to make a grand life update but I am failing. I keep feeling majorly intimidated by the idea of writing out a whole entry, though, so here are some bullet points.

* I keep meaning to get back into DW development and failing.
* Mental health is variable and dodgy.
* This week I started learning German. I am doing quite well at translating song lyrics, with lots of help from a friend who's a native speaker, Google Translate, cognates, and linguistician's logic. I'm also doing the absolute beginner's course at Livemocha which is teaching me useful things. (But having a native speaker around who's willing to take me through things and geek out with me about linguistics, is invaluable and awesome fun.)
* I have two large WIPs and one short one. (This is just the ones I'm working on right now. The list of languishing bunnies is terrifying.)
* I have started (edit: I mean "started playing in") an RP! I am playing Joel, who is the main character of my languishing paranormal romance novel. He is awesome and it's lots of fun. It's offsite, but I'm considering making him a journal.

That will do for now!
randomling: Mulder (The X-Files) looks up at the sky. "the truth is out there" (the truth is out there)
Almost 17,000 words this week!

~7.5 on WIP Big Bang.
~9.5 on my original sci-fi porn.

My mood is all over the place, but I am getting words written, so that's something I can at least call an accomplishment.
randomling: Peter Bishop (Fringe) ponders something. (working)
Social media is complicated. I have lots of it, in various states of disuse. I'm reasonably okay with these accounts being linked to each other, but if you know my wallet name, please don't link it with any of these accounts.

Places you can find me! )
