peroxidepirate: (I wanted the opposite)
I'm in the throes of some significant mental health fail. I don't know how long it will last or how much I might whinge about it here. Defriending amnesty is in full effect: if you choose to defriend me, I won't ask why and I won't be mad. If you want to stay friends for fandom/writing/recipes/etc but be filtered out of Real Life-type posts, comment here and I'll set it up. Comments are screened.

ETA: I'm sorry if I worried anyone by posting this! I seem to be depressed without apparent cause (or anyway, the fuck out of proportion to the evident causes). This is new to me; working past it is likely to involve a lot of introspection and feeling sorry for myself, and feels like it might take a while. That's all.

Oh, Facebook.

friends, "boy trouble" and chain letters )

OTOH: I am 100-ish pages into Sharon Shinn's Mystic and Rider, and loving it. And rambling. )

In other news, I had the best long walk I've had with the dogs in ages, maybe because the temperature was up around freezing! (City Mouse does not like the cold, you see.) And I got some kick ass blue boots! And finished my Christmas shopping! And now I am off to read some more.
peroxidepirate: (writing)
I want to write a long, rambling self-indulgent post about all the things bouncing around in my brain, such as:
  • friendship
  • food
  • work
  • sneaky hate spirals
  • onion soup
  • attention deficit disorder
  • depression
  • mental health-related medications
  • creativity
  • writing
  • self-editing
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Glake
  • fic exchanges
  • chat
And yes, the end of that list circles right back around to the beginning of it again. ^.^

But I can't write that wandery-rambly post, because.... I get home from work about 8 Saturday night, and I think I really need a good ol' Glake crack!chat... which will mean no writing on Saturday. So I'm trying to write at least another 2200 words tonight or tomorrow night.

I guess it can wait until December...

*waves to f'list*
peroxidepirate: (joyful girl)
Right. This advice has been coming at me from all directions, lately: remember to have fun! If it's not fun, why are you even doing it? About fandom, writing (specifically NaNo), cooking, owning dogs, bike riding, and probably some other things that don't come to mind just now.

I try to pay attention when that happens.

So, since I didn't feel like writing today, I played with graphics instead. I made this icon, and a wallpaper (clickable thumbnail, below) to go with it. (Both are up for grabs, too.)

Joyful Girl wall

Text is from the song "Joyful Girl," by Ani Difranco; to me it's actually a very sad song, though beautiful. It struck me today, "Joyful Girl" fits Rose, in this moment, perfectly. It fits me a little bit, too, though not as literally.

In the end, the joy wins out. It has to. And if it doesn't, go do something else instead.

(uh, so far I'm not staying away from the internet whatsoever-at-all. well, I had today off, and that helps a little. also, I'm not writing just now. but... I think that's ok.)
