How am I doing? Well, I got groceries yesterday, including a really nice little fancy cheddar I was going to eat with crackers, except I forgot to buy crackers, and that made me sad. Today when I had to go out to my injection appointment I had a brief moment of "and I could go pick up some crackers!" but then that fizzled because I know it's irresponsible, under the circumstances, to go to the store more than once a week unless I absolutely have to, and I've been feeling kinda brokenhearted about it ever since. At least outdoors exercise is considering necessary here, and the situation isn't dire enough to forbid that; the past few days have been sunny and warm (for early spring) and I ended up walking a ton yesterday, on accident, just because I was so glad to be out. I walked some but rather less today, because my legs and feet hurt and are complaining, because APPARENTLY the indoors exercises I have been doing don't translate to walking muscles hardly at all. Meh. Spoiler: complaining about loneliness It doesn't make up for the loneliness, though. J still has to work, so he's gone most of the time during the week; I tried to get into Lord of the Rings Online, which he plays a lot of, so we could play together at some point, but good god that game is a fucking headache of oldschool MMO problems and possibly the worst game map I've ever had the displeasure of using. I was okay with it for the first few levels in the intro area, but once I got into one of the main areas it became a tedious experience of mostly running around being lost trying to figure out where the hell everything is because the map has ALMOST NO FINE DETAIL. What you get marked is stables and 'points of interest', like the Brandywine Bridge. Want to know where a shop, your class training hall, or a mailbox is, though? TOO FUCKING BAD, run around and hope you get close enough the icon shows up on your minimap. Side quests? Run around and hope you get close enough the icon shows on your minimap. He won't try FFXIV, saying it's not really his style (even though he regularly envies how good it looks) and that it looks too hard. He plays reaction-based stuff that I couldn't even begin to handle, so I don't understand why he thinks it would be too hard for him, especially not when much worse players than I am get through all sorts of content, and I'm barely average, at that. One of my friends stopped playing altogether, Aud can't play because her laptop shits itself when she tries to run the game, and most of my friends both in and out of my FC either mainly play at hours I can't be on or already have a full pre-made group to run everything with. I know I should try to make more friends if I want people to play with, but I don't want new people to play with! I want to play with the friends I have. I'm gonna go be lonely and sad in bed now since I have to get up early to do laundry.
