    Happy belated 2019 everyone! I kind of wanted to do a little “2018 in review” post, and I must admit… I’ve been a little bit tardy with it. Things have been a bit crazy the last couple of months, with work and being ill (I got some kind of viral gastroenteritis over the holidays – not fun at all lemme tell you), but things have settled a bit now. So… on with it, I guess? Favourite Album(s) of 2018: Carnifex’s Bury Me In Blasphemy. It’s was a short little EP of only fours songs, but my goodness… who knew a death metal cover of “Head Like A Hole” by Nine…

    Look what I got~! Finally, after years of who-hawing and contemplating, this beauty is mine: It took four, almost five hours, to complete and I was so proud of myself because I sat through the entire thing and didn’t gripe and I only needed a break once when my bottom cramped up (Brian’s chair has literally no padding on it – a fact that he himself admits). Thankfully, my wonderful boyfriend was there for company and he let me squeeze his hand because towards the end it was getting kind of dicey. Here was the finished product: It’s a beauty, non? It is on the side of my left thigh.…

    *blows off the cobwebs* I hate that when I finally think I have time to work on this blog, I just… don’t, LOL. I have been so crazy busy this past month, I am still having a hard time accepting that it’s almost the end of July already. Time flies when you’re overworked and sick as Hell, right? Right. LOL. I have made a lot of changes, though, and made some steps that I am pretty proud of. I gave up my rotation at the hospital, so instead of working a 60+ hour work week, I am down to 40, like a normal human. I will still be picking up…

    Forgive the lack of posting. I have spent the last few weeks in the grips of the dreaded influenza B, and I finally seem to be on the mend. I still have some fatigue and the occasional cough, but I’m functional, and I am not burning up like Human Torch from Fantastic Four. This virus just does not seem to want to let go and it’s been awful dealing with this, because there is not much that can be done except for fluid overload and symptomatic management, which is difficult, because of the fact that every cough/flu medication on the market either increases or blocks the effects of my antidepressants.…

    Each word gets lost in the echo…

    The smoke is still messing with me. It will be completely clear and lovely one day (despite being hotter than the Devil’s hot tub) and then the next day, like today, the smoke is so thick that I can taste it. Going outside without my respirator is out of the question. While I was at home, I went outside for less than two minutes just to run the garbage to the bin and my glob, you guys… my eyes watered and swelled up, and it felt like I had been punched in the chest. It’s awful. The smoke has caused this… epic, epic mucus build-up in my chest that has…
