Life has been a flurry of new job and video games. Since I finished FFXV, I also finished Persona 5 and Horizon Zero Dawn. Both games were positively excellent. They kinda renewed my love and hope in video games. Lately I’ve been feeling really hopeless with games because nothing seems to interest me anymore. I’m hoping this trend continues.
I’ve started my new job full time. Been at it for about a month and a bit. So far, I really like it. My boss is awesome, she likes me, I like her. I’ve gotten my first raise since starting already, which is great. It’s more than D ever gave me. So far, I think I’ll like it there. I’m still in the honeymoon period where everything seems better than my last job. But I feel like I’ve been working here forever. D feels like a lifetime ago, which is great.
I got an IUD sometime between my last post and now (I think?). Things have been awkward ever since, but I’m really hoping that things turn around. I know it’s common for people to have awkward side effects for six months even, so I’m holding my breath for improvement. I do randomly get some really crazy intense 30 second cramps from time to time, though. And I’m not just being a baby about it, these are the most painful cramps I’ve ever felt in my entire life. Possibly even the worst type of pain I’ve ever felt, period. Internal pain is different from getting a cut or breaking a bone. It’s just so awful. But, again, holding my breath and hoping for improvement.
Speaking of broken bones, I’ve broken my toe again.
I rammed it into a computer tower coming down the stairs at work. This time it’s my left pinky toe (as opposed to my right pinky toe 4 years ago). It’s definitely more broken than last time. It’s turning a variety of colors and there’s so much swelling that when I put my foot flat on the ground, the rest of my toes don’t touch the floor – the swelling pushes my foot up too much. So that sucks.
Otherwise, life is quietly busy. Wedding dress is well under way and I’ve gotten my wedding band. Hopefully my toe is in tip top shape by September (it should be) for a day of heels.
