    bad: I have a meeting tomorrow for which my whole strategy is more or less 'I am not going to finish this by the deadline, I want to get as much as I can done, help?' and of course I do not have as much preparation done for this as I would like or indeed as the person I'm meeting would like, I expect. but it is late, and I am quite tired and overwhelmed. I have made some cursory notes and the best thing I can do is to try and get enough rest that tomorrow me has a couple of hours to work on it.

    good: I talked to my sister and aunt and friend today and all three continue to be lovely people & lovely people to have in my life. also I went to an appointment I needed to and it was useful! just because the situation now is a little bleak doesn't mean it will always be, nor that I can't enjoy doing things to make it more bearable.

    Bad news: slipped in some mud and ate shit into a sidewalk on the way to a game store, and my knee is a bad.

    Good news: hung out with friends at said game store for 7 hours straight playing rotten apples and creating a whole world with unique races, magic, gods, landscapes, societies, stats, and more instead of just following a DND system. I'm so stoked to see how the gameplay ends up, and if it doesn't work I get to sit down and talk about all that shit again :DDD

    Edit: favorite bit, we made all the gods basically tulpas. Powerful beings of thought energy. A lot of the magic system runs on intent, and I really hope it works well with the gameplay because holy moly that sounds so fun!!!

    Bad news: Went to get my flu shot in late November. Have flu now anyway. Swag

    Good news: Have learned the joys of face masks. No idea if they have any therapeutic benefit, besides keeping me from getting drops of cough particulate on other people, but damn it feels nice to have a breath relocator shield to warm my throat and sinuses

    Good news. I made caramelized steak last night.
    Bad news. I splashed molten sugar on my hand. It left a big, blistering burn.
    Good news. It's right on the intersection of two preexisting scars so it doesn't hurt at all!

    good thing: finished first draft of fic i've been working on for over a month! (it's only 9k but i'm a slow writer so i'm still proud)
    bad thing: don't have any fandom friends in this fandom (pathologic) so can neither bounce ideas off anyone or ask anyone to beta, which is a shame because i think this is actually the first time i've finished something and thought "i want to hold on to this for a bit so it's actually as good as i can make it right now before i post it" rather than just... wanting to get it immediately out there. I'm technically in a discord server for pathologic and could ask there but hmmmmmm antis. This fic would not be a problem for antis. but another thing i'm also writing definitely would be and i'm not about to open myself up for that kind of bs :(
