Howdy to the couple of new people from AMA! The intro post that I link to is still kinda current, but I'm now nearly twenty-one. I also don't update nearly enough, but I think I may have warned you of that. Also this is a good catchup for older people of my f-list as I...don't update nearly enough. But you might have discovered that fact.
Real Life Doings - The three main things in my life at the moment are:
- my parents, aunt & uncle & cousin and I are going to a beachside apartment like we do every year around this time. We leave on Saturday - I can only handle so much sun and lack of computer, so I'll be heading back via train on Wednesday-ish.
- my twenty-first birthday party. I turn 21 on 22 February, and the party is the Saturday before (the 20th). Planning for this is stressing up relations with my mum and dad, because I don't have a good personality for dealing with my mum, and my dad tries hard but doesn't know me well enough.
- my trip to the USA in April. I'm a fan of professional wrestling, and a massive fan of a promotion called Chikara Pro, which is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They're holding a huge tournament called King of Trios over the weekend of 23-25th, which they've had for a few years now - however last year's was stated to be the last one, then when this one got announced there was a whole bunch of speculation that this, then, would be the final one. And I really want to see it in person.
Other things that might be less talked about, but are still going on:
- ridiculous ladypart stuff involving a 53-day period. I have an appointment with a doctor next Friday to discuss.
- my Nanna had bowel surgery last year and didn't rebound from it. It was touch and go for a long time after that, and it's fairly certain she'll have to go into long term care and won't be going back home, which she shares with my uncle (her son). Her five kids (including my dad) all trek up to the rehab facility six times a week. I don't know how to handle this.
- I am also a fan of Power Rangers, and I write fanfiction for it. I feel no badness on this.
- there is a damn good possibility I may just update with squeeing over something fandomy.
- also, to those from AMA: I do use icons apart from Licking Man, you'll be happy to know.
