I'm pretty sure my cat's been reading my diary.
well well well, what do we have here.|
things. things have happened. I realise this is non-specific, but there have been many small things and I really don't have the energy or the inclination to remember and report all of them. You don't care anyway.
Let it suffice to say that I seem to be relatively happy. This is novel. Sure, nothing's shit-hot-amazing, but nothing is actively dragging me down either. I'm still not the brightest crayon in the box but I'm not crying into piles of puppies, and havent been for a few months. I'll go right ahead and say that's good.
In Which Leo Makes A List Of Positive Shit That's Come Her Way:
+ I got to see Iggy and the fucking Stooges, and they played Gimme Danger.
+ There has been an abundance of Neil'n'Amanda in our continent of late.
+ Avatar: The Last Airbender is the greatest children's show in the world, holy shit I will not even front, I marathon that shit.
+ I am going on an epic fucking holiday to the Motherland and also Hamburger-agogo land for a massive geekery blowout.
+ I have by totally random happenstance, found a dog-friendly, reasonably priced place to live when we have to move out of this house. The relief is overwhelming.
+ My uni timetable is so much more practical this term, and I appear to be in a brand new class. I've also considered transferring to COFA, so I'm no longer stuck there if I hate it.
+ That said, I may score a job as a groom for the NSW Police Force. I'm so childishly thrilled at this prospect, despite the fact it will disturb most other parts of my life. My updates will go from puppies! to ponies!
Those last few points are riddled with logistical problems (I'm only looking for a new job because my current 000 position is threatened, although not because of anything I did), but overall, that shit's awesome.
I've also recently "given up" dairy products. I use quotation marks because I'm not flat out removing them from my life, or going vegan (I think it's almost impossible to do that, seeing as most food products will use some sort of animal product, and either way, unless you live soley out of a 100% Vegan Friendly store, you're still roundaboutly contributing to the dairy and meat industry by buying anything from a shop that sells animal products), BUT I am making an active effort to not mindlessly pick a dairy-heavy option as I would normally do (fucking love cheese, bro), and thus not actively fuel the demand for them. It makes sense in my head, please leave any questions for the end of the class.
This is partially because of (and was kickstarted by) the issue and proposed change of care to bobby calves in Australia - I understand that bobby calves will always exist in any kind of large scale farming, and I understand keeping all the calves is totally unsustainable, but I'm not happy about it and as a result would rather not give any money to the mass production of milk that I don't have to.
That said, I'm getting some pretty selfish benefits out of it as well - I've lost weight very quickly (which goes to show just how much dairy I was eating) and felt quite a bit healthier since. I'm trying to find more companies like Barambah that work on a much smaller scale and do keep their calves to buy from, though, so I don't miss out on dairy completely.
I'm bored with this now and should be tidying my unholy mess of a room.
