So again, not much to report. My husband built me a new computer with a loud-ass keyboard, which I love.

Been going out a bit, because my counselor wants me to as part of my exposure therapy. But I'm still mostly housebound.

I was more or less referring to how internet culture basically became fully bridged with mainstream culture around that point. 2012 really started that, though it finally happened in 2016 or so and now we have crap like TikTok, which is setting objectification of women/children back 200 years, fused into, and normalised as part of youth society (take the word 'simp' for example, which came from there, which means 'male flirt' and was coined by a typical 'hip-hop chav' on TikTok if I'm not mistaken)... and Twitter - a constant back-and-forth hellhole of nolives nowadays on both the neocommunist hypocritical far left, and the conservative, devout Catholic right; neither of which the arguments of course get anywhere, and yet they're taken just as seriously as a real argument, in real life. I guess modern society is equivalent to the aesthetics Genocide City Zone were supposed to convey, as Hachelle-Bee pictured it in S2 Long Version, huh.

"And if you tolerate this, then your children will be next..." seems to become more and more of a relevant song lyric every day that passes, huh.

Wow, that was one hell of a long post, sorry for the lack of organisation. You likely didn't even read most of it...

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Seemed like with every celebrity death of 2016, everyone became more and more despondent and blaming the year number for all of the world's ills.

2020 is just a number. It has been a shit year, but it's been a shitty few years, if we're being honest. This one just chose to wreck EVERYONE'S good time. Unless they're making money off the suffering and enjoying it, in which case fuck them. *Shrug*

Honestly everything seems to be a continuation of a very long, dragged-out and worsening 2016 for me and what's going on in the world, especially with the way social media is getting rapidly globalised and such since then (see: Discord finally killing most forums).

Oh, Rogue from 2019. How naive you were then.

So this year has taken a dump on everyone, some more than others.

I've started therapy and medication for all my mental shit, and even though I've had the occasional breakdowns, it's been fine. The real work is in the exposure therapy I'm putting myself through. Baby steps.

Well, I legit thought I'd hit the "Happy Thread" in Last Posts, especially while I was reading the last thing I wrote here. Eh.

Still working two jobs and still pretty tired all the damn time, but yeah, I guess you could say I'm happy. Glad the second job lifted the ban on trading shifts to get days off, at least for now. It's to help people seeking extra hours get them while those of us who don't want to work so much can just give away those hours. This has given me the ability to actually have days where I don't have to go to either job and to actually rest or spend a day out having fun and not worry about getting back in time to get ready for work.

Anyway, I can't believe the year's almost over already. It's been quite a ride. I wouldn't have predicted how this new year had gone since the beginning. To 2020, everyone.

Hope your health is improving, Xeo. Sorry your spine has been having problems.


I'd spent a lot of last month incredibly ill and at one point had hit a really dark place. Ah, depression.

Anyway, am back on the horse, in a manner of speaking. Took a few days in San Francisco to see Metallica and run around town. Got our rental car broken into and stuff stolen, but the most valuable things were quickly recovered.

I finally passed my probation at my second job, but we're going through a slow season, so I'm only getting a couple shifts a week lately. I'm actually cool with that since it finally gives me some mental wiggle room.

Well I'm finally seeing some specialists/neurologists lately, turns out I am officially broken. Bulging discs at my C4-C5 protruding on the spinal cord and my neck is "straight", as in it's lost its natural curve. Going to go in for some nerve tests and other stuff since my left side, shoulder/arms bothers me the most. No idea what this will all lead to.

Working 60 hours a week, not counting my commutes to, from, and between my places of employment and having to change clothes and work the nights on an empty stomach.

I swear when it rains, it pours. Working two jobs, still on my first four months probation with one, and I get hit with a jury summons.

Was sick all this week and when I finally remembered the summons, I had just enough time to postpone it 'til July.

I'm so exhausted, mentally and physically.

Congrats! I want a cat someday. Just not sure I want to bother with animals in apartments. But I don't know if a house will be in the cards for a long time...

Fiancee and I recently got a Newfoundland puppy, and my free time is now devoted to pupper training.

Somehow mixed them up and forgot which was which.

Last week was a slower more normal 40 hour week... still had the usual 10 hour day today though (Tuesday's are the busiest), but hopefully with a few temps now maybe things will slow down again at my job. We definitely need the break...

Weather warming up and I'm already turning the AC on. Can't sleep in humid hot junk.

It's going all right. I was scheduled for just weekends, but they started asking me to do nights too as part of my availability.

So ... work at the center Monday through Friday 8 'til 4.

Work at Disneyland the rest of my waking hours.

Yep, sorry all I haven't been around much... still getting worked a lot with overtime. Apparently the unemployment rate is SO low right now they're having trouble getting us temps to help with the influx of work. We've only had one or two people hired on when they could usually get a dozen to us in a few weeks. Hope it slows down soon...

How's the new job going Rogue?

Started my new job this past weekend. Heh, what's a weekend?

I feel like I'm going to fuck it up somehow.

Sorry you're overworked, Xeo. I imagine I'll be in that same boat soon.


I'm on my last two weekends and people are flaking on our plans together. You'd think I'd learn.
