Things that are true.
My laptop lid will not always stay open.
My water does not have enough ice in it by far.
I have a lingering headache that is not making this post easy to write in a sensible form.
I’m discovering Christmas carols I have never heard before in my life.
I have painted my nails in what I thought was a golden hue, but actually has a greenish-gold tone that makes my pale fingertips look a bit gangrenous or in other lights, casts me as though I’ve got a case of colic.
I have watched a horrific Christmas film about a clown and do not know if I will ever fully enjoy the holiday again.
I need to appreciate the fact that I was given flowers and loads of chocolate and hugs and kind things from my coworkers and not just feel as though they are another task on my list of endlessly required reciprocation I’ve yet to reciprocate fully.
I am really quite tired and will probably go to bed at least by midnight in the hopes that I can just run through the day tomorrow and get over to my parents because I want to just be on vacation or not so mentally connected to anything or one right now. Providing the laundry is done.
I am actually proud of myself for carrying on this long, long, long writing spree for 6 years. 6 fucking years. Lord. I don’t know how this transition to doing something different will work, but I know I have to, have to in ten different ways. Still, this has been a commitment of my life. This has taken some iron will.
The guy and I are still talking 99% of which is regarding this D&D game. I have zero sense if he likes me or dislikes me, or…if I am honest, and speaking in terms of truth, I know exactly how much he likes me…which is the sane amount for someone you’ve had an extended facebook conversation with. Nothing has been decided yet. Nothing has been created yet. I have not even determined if I want things to be decided and created and happening. He could be an axe murderer! He could be a saint! He could be a dour bore. He could be a sexist prick (I think he is emphatically not that). He could be completely fine and just not that into me. He is also not here and and mostly not the most viable option. Yet, he’s willing to talk to me off and on for the better part of two days so even if I’m just filling a slot at his D&D table, it is bigger than nothing. And I do have to acknowledge that working at the shop does sort of challenge my ability to provide entertaining repartee via my phone whilst I am on the floor.
I am so looking forward to being able to get back in some healthy patterns and habits in the new year. I can feel my body screaming for it in countless ways.
