"It's time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through"
Well, this year has come around to reach the point where I'm officially older again; though in reality we're all older each and every day, though for some reason we only commemorate (or commiserate?) that once a year. What a peculiar habit when you really think about it. I'm 26 today, by the way, in case anyone's wondering about the actual number (though I swear I mentally stopped aging at the age 12 but that's beside the point).
Works has been keeping me relatively busy, but I still manage to find the time for convention and cosplay plans. Next month Sadyna
and I are going to Cosvision 2014 in Turku and I'm scrambling to put together my Thorin costume on time - we'll see how that goes with my schedule, but I'm hopeful (a lot depends on when my wigs arrive, too)! Or if that does not happen, I'll be going as a dwarf character anyway. Ain't nothing coming between me and my dwarves, guys.
In other news, I'm also on medication starting today.
Six weeks straight for my stomach problems, and if the lab tests come back positive for certain things, I'll also have to take antibiotics. Oh joy. What a birthday present, but then again I'm glad I'll get rid of the stuff bothering me. Oh no, nothing dangerous, worry not, but bothersome, definitely, and occasionally very tiring, and it has been making me very grumpy at times. It's part of the reason why I've fallen miserably out of touch with everyone on more distant timezones and a little bit elsewhere too - I just don't have the energy to keep up with everybody's lives as I used to, and I've accepted that unconditionally in order to keep any unnecessary stress from building up again (I do trust that most people are mature enough not to get offended by that since it's nothing personal and not being in touch =/= not caring). I'm sorry if someone has a problem with that, but I have to admit that I'm not 100% healthy and have very little tolerance for any excess stress even though I've been making great progress there, too. Stress is evil, guys, once it gets a hold of you you'll have a hard time getting rid of the nasty side effects it causes. Kick it in the balls and don't let it get to you, it's not worth it.
Despite those little passing annoyances with health, I'm more content with myself and my life than I have been in years and years, and I swear it keeps getting better all the time. So happy birthday to me, and cheers to all of you!
