Long time no see, Livejournal.

Lots of things have happened since my last real post.

2014, had my gallbladder removed without much notice. If you have never felt gallbladder-related pain, it is a special kind of hurt. Good lord. XD

We moved in early 2015. Thought everything was gonna be great, until the money problems. We are moving again in 2017. There's a dim chance I might get to move to the coast. I really hope! I've been looking and there are very affordable homes on the NC coast for people in our income range. I can't explain why but I feel this intense need to be near the ocean. O_o

Earlier this year, my Grandma passed. I wasn't especially close to her or anything, seeing that they live in NY and I live in NC, so I didn't get to see them that much. Nonetheless, it sucked.

Shortly after that, I had a terrible falling out with a cousin which really messed with my head.

Then, my cat died. My precious Lengoe Hideki. He'd been having issues including a really nasty tumor on his side that was removed, and diabetes. I'd had him since I was 15. He was 16 years old and went into renal failure. I was absolutely crushed. I adopted very quickly, because I can't stand being alone. His name is Oscar and he's the goofiest creature on this earth O_O I really love him. I'll post some pics later and tell a bit about him :3

I got to reconnect with an old friend and we've been hanging out on a regular basis. :D

I started the process to get approved for weight loss surgery. It's kind of iffy right now, since I've been flaky in the past about things my doctor told me to do. I don't know if they'll let me have it or make me wait a while longer.

I haven't drawn much at all this year, so my new years resolution is to FUCKING DRAW STUFF.

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

(no subject)

I had an MRI (brain) at 5:45, I was in the goddamn tube for 30 minutes. I had a couple of panic attacks. I really forgot how much those freak me out, but I haven't had one since 2003. I had a contrast IV which was...unsettling. Anyways, it was an ordeal and they'd better find a tumor in there. /half-joking =_=

I felt like a slightly overweight hamster in a too-small hamster tube. :O

cards


My super awesome custom postcards came today, so I can start sending them ^_^ I only have 15 and I probably have about 5 or 6 free ones left, so if you want one, comment on the card post. I actually have a lot more than that to send, but I got some glittery santa clauses to send to those who might not share my sense of humor :P Hell, if you would rather have a glittery santa claus instead of a mushroom cloud, let me know.
