Just dropping in since it's been a while and I can't get to sleep at the moment.

Things have been a little crazy for the past few months. I have my hands pretty full with cleaning up the house I'm in (and the plumbing keeps giving me issues– the main pipe is clay and decades old so the tree roots around are breaking through it over and over), helping out my friend– now boyfriend– who was in the car accident, and trying to join any activist efforts I can now that the US is in such an insane state. I participated in the Women's March in Washington D.C., and soon I'll be making an appointment to meet with a state representative alongside my mom. I never thought I'd end up living through this kind of thing before. I used to never watch the news, but now I'm watching several different news networks almost daily. It seems like something scary crops up every single day and I might miss something important if I blink.

So with everything going on, I haven't had a chance to cosplay or even make anything for future cosplays, save for the tiny convention I attended in January for one day. I wore a cosplay I'd finished last year and only takes a few minutes to put on, so it was pretty minimal effort. Still, I got lots of photos taken, which felt pretty nice after how much work I put into making that cosplay.

Whenever I do take breaks from working on things, I just sit and knit. I've been super exhausted for the past week and haven't been able to do much of anything... I tried to clean for maybe half an hour the other day and got a migraine, and I slept through the time I was supposed to volunteer at the cat shelter. Plus, I've lost about ten pounds without trying to, which isn't something that normally happens to me. I usually stay the same weight or slowly pack on a few extra pounds until I really try dieting to get rid of it, so I'm a bit worried.

I suppose overall I'm doing well mentally and emotionally. Having a companion to talk to every day is good for me and Mimi keeps me company most of the time. I took her to the vet and she's in excellent health aside from some gingivitis. She'll be turning thirteen next month, and yet she plays like a kitten. The only problem I've had with her is that she cries and cries whenever I'm working in the basement (which is blocked off until it's ready for cats), so then I have to stop every ten minutes to hold her until she calms down again.

The weather here has been super weird. I wore shorts last week and was still sweating, and just yesterday it snowed. I don't understand!

Anyway, I hope things are going well for all of you, or that at least things are calmer. I miss hearing from you all.
