IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG!!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 7, 2013, 10:51 PM


OMG I am so sorry I haven’t been here lately. I’m just starting to get out of the funk I was in from the financial woes we went through while Nova was unemployed. Thankfully Nova found a job in August as a caregiver with a really nice in-home care agency. She’s been working her tail off and we’re finally getting caught up with our bills.

 

Since my last journal I’ve healed up nicely and now we’re tackling the mess we call our apartment. Not only do we have a totally disastrous kitchen but our living room and computer room are full of storage bins that we had to empty from our storage. Those are slowly going away...

 

The best news yet is I FINALLY have my name legally changed!! As well as my gender marker! :dummy:

 

~***~

 

If anyone is interested here’s my tumblr and YouTube links again. As well as the indiegogo links for my campaign to raise money for my SRS surgeries and Nova and my campaign to raise money for a house.

Winter Goals

 

For this round of goals I will set the goal date for January 1, 2014.

 

Color key

:bulletblack: unfinished

:bulletblue: constant goal, no real end.

:bulletgreen: Finished goal

 

Goals

 

:bulletblue:1. Continue better eating habits and exercise, and improve on them.

 

:bulletblack:2. Finish up the odd jobs I’ve volunteered for. I’ve offered my services to some of you as a beta reader. If I’m currently working on one of your pieces, I planned to finish those up in the next few weeks as well. NOTE: Due to some of my goals I may not be as available to beta read as I’ve been. I’ll still lurk around and help ya’all out if I have the time. :) Don’t hesitate to ask for my help still, the worst I can say is ‘I’m sorry but I don’t have the time right now’. I do still want to help as much as I can though. :D

 

:bulletgreen:3. Save money to legally change my name. (Got this done on 12/4/2013!)

 

:bulletblack:4. I want to finish the rewrite of several of the chapters I’ve already written of the rough draft of my novel ‘For You I Will’. This entails more than just revision that’s why I’m bothering doing it first instead of doing it later. It is going to heavily influence how the rest of the chapters play out. And because of it I might be adding chapters in between the ones I’ve already written, so this is a very important step and my hopes are that I’ll get more than this done. I’m at a stand still at the moment and I hope to change that with this goal. :XD:

 

:bulletblack:5. Start seriously saving money for my SRS surgeries. And the required counseling before surgery. Also on saving money we need to also save for things we’ll need when we try to have a baby. At least we’re pretty sure an old friend of mine will be our donor so we won’t have to pay for that part of it. We do need to prepare for all the little and not so little expenses associated with both the pregnancy and when the baby comes. We’re tentatively going to start trying this summer. :) I hope I’ll be able to be closer to getting at least my chest surgery by then so I can pass easier. I’m going to be the baby’s dad after all. :XD:

UPDATE 9/30/2012: I currently have a therapist.</span></b>

UPDATE 5/31/2012: We have a crowd funding campaign for both my SRS surgeries and buying a house those links are:</span></b>

Hey, friend :D  Haven't heard anything about/from you in a while.  How are you?
Reply
:iconakibara13:
Yeah, sorry about that. I've been having a lot of migraine/neck pain issues lately so I haven't been on the computer much and when I am on I've been doing a lot with the online part of the support group I go to, especially where I'm now their facilitator and the chair of the leadership committee for the support group. That's been keeping me busy when I'm not too headachey. I hope to spend time on here again soon and on my writing and stuff too. If I can get my pain issues under control. I'm trying to do more exercise in hopes that will help, we'll see. Anyway, thank for checking in and saying hi! How have you been?

Well, I'm done with school, so I'm looking for a paralegal job now. Through some miracle (or torture), I'm still at West, so at least I have something to fall back on if I can't find a job in my related field right now.

I've been working on my comic, which has been taking up a lot of time! I really couldn't believe how much time it takes to produce one page! My fiance does comic work, too, but I think he gets done in half of the time I do. But, then again, he's been doing it a lot longer. (When I got the idea to do my own comic, he was working on one and it took him 4 days to do 6 pages. Me, it takes 12-15 hours to complete one page!)

:iconakibara13:
Yeah, at least you have a job while you're looking for something in the field you've worked towards. A small consolation but it is one nevertheless. :XD: 

I have yet to actually check out your comic, I'll have to do that once I'm done making this reply. :) Yeah, turning out anything of quality whether it be a comic or writing takes a while. Some people just seem to be gifted and more experienced at making that happen faster. It can be frustrating for it to take so long, but there is no better feeling than working hard on something and seeing the finished product. :)
