    I have to throw a bit of love to the fact that we still have access to our old forums.
    A bit of context:

    There was a thread in the old forums, much like in these new ones, where people could post the theme song for their characters. And back in the old days of the old forums, I found two very different songs that became favorites, that was theme songs for the same character.
    It was @Anfini who first said that his theme song was The Horror by RJD2, which was a song I tried to figure out yesterday, and found again thanks to the old forums. But after his post about this song, if I remember correctly, someone else posted that nah.. that's not the correct song. The song that fits Anfini the most is The coconut song by Harry Nilsson.

    So.. yeah.. Love those two songs and after these years of not hearing them, I managed to remember The coconut song, but could only remember The Horror by RJD2 thanks to the old forums,

    I'm not sure if this is exactly how the songs were presented, this is simply how I remember it. Might have been another way, but... yeah!

    I have a toothache.

    Normally, that would go in mad, not love. But for some reason unbeknownst to me, my body has decided that the CURE for my toothache, is to drink orange soda.

    I don't pretend to understand the WHY (maybe it's the bubbles) because it makes no bloody sense whatsoever. But drinking orange soda makes my tooth stop aching for a while.

    So. Love for weird biology making life strangely more bearable.

    Today is the last day of the September mayhem at work. Every year, September is like this. We prepare the entire branch for its yearly audit and stocktake. Then, the auditors are here poking their nose in everything (because it's their job to) and they "grade" my profit center.

    Last. Day.

    Then I'm back to normal life schedule and Aetolia schedule. I'm so happy! 8 hours to go. COOKIES FOR EVERYONE TODAY.

    I'm going to apologize for the length of this post in advance. I don't even think my family knows the full extent of this, but here goes:

    Music has always been an integral part of my life. All my tattoos revolve around music, I've been singing in choirs most of my life, I've been humming and singing since I was little, recording myself, sung karaoke, even sung on stage quite a few times, and always had music in the background somehow. I love music.

    Over the last few years, due to various reasons, I have been struggling off and on. I know, we all go through our own stuff, so I won't bore you with any details. Suffice it to say I've been in contact with professionals at least twice and been brought back from suicidal thoughts thanks to that help. I've always been seen as a strong individual, so I have tended to isolate myself when feeling bad to keep my weakness from others around me. It's a bad decision, I know, but nothing one can control at such times.

    One of the things I lost during this time of isolation was my music. I stopped singing in my choir, because I couldn't stand being around people. I lost confidence in my voice, so I stopped singing in general. I stopped turning on the radio, or my playlists on the computer. I stopped logging in to my Spotify account. My apartment has been almost completely quiet, aside from a few days now and then when I've felt good enough to turn on some music on youtube or when someone has sent me a link and I've gotten stuck checking related music.

    My dad shared this passion for music. He didn't sing (according to him that's not what manly men like him do), but he knew how to whistle. He loved a good beat, or an interesting voice. We played a lot of music at his funeral in honor of this. And since then...

    I have found my way back to my music. It began with listening to a playlist we dedicated to him, running it from my phone when I went to and from work, to looking through the music on my computer, to finally logging back on Spotify. Last week I caught myself singing to myself for the first time in years, smiling. Right now, I'm sitting in my apartment, music blazing out of the speakers, and suddenly it feels like I might actually be alright again.

    I want to take a moment to thank @Karhast for kind of singularly being the reason my passion for Aetolia has been rekindled. That kind of RP? I missed that, dearly.

    If all I wanted was ERP I definitely did not have to migrate from my previous MUD.

    Tonight was a bittersweet night. I got to get out of the house by myself to go to an auction, but was for my mom's estate. The reason I am putting this in the love section, however, was the entire night bringing back so many great memories from when I was younger. I felt poetic for the first time in years, though all I could keep thinking to myself is 'you can't go writing that out, you'll only make more harm than good'. That brought back the feelings of bitter I've held against my siblings starting in 2001, made me think hard on everything I've held back because I didn't want them to know just how hurt and frustrated I had been with them vs my parents.

    So, I've settled that it is time to see a therapist. No just medicating, which is nice, but actual working through my bitterness to see if I can be better than my parents. It feels really good right now, even if it may just be mostly tiredness, to know that I may find peace with it in coming months.

    Love that I unicorns up my math. Usually this works against me, but this time, I thought I'd be running out of meds today--4 days before the doctor can see me. Annnnnd I don't, I have six more days, so I'll even have a couple days of backup in case the pharmacy unicorns something up or needs something from my doctor.

    I do my best to be a good person, since I believe in karma. If you do good, good will happen to you. Sometimes in big ways and sometimes in small. The other day, I think the Universe decided to pay me back a little.
    For many years, I have followed an author on FB. Since I live in Sweden and shipping is so expensive, I haven't had a chance to buy any of his books, but I wanted to not forget about them, so I've kept my eyes on new books and such for years and years now. However, around the beginning of the new year, I will be able to finally buy these books and that made me super excited!

    So I made a short post on his FB page, telling him that FINALLY I can buy his books and read them and how happy I am about that. It didn't take long before I got a private message from him. He was just as excited as myself that I could read his stories and he told me that he still had some paperback copies of all of his books. He would keep a copy of each for me and when I could afford them, he would sign them and ship them to me, even offering to pay the shipping himself. I said that it really was too kind, but... who am I to say no to autographed copies! :)

    To make this story more interesting, this author is SJ Saunders, a family member to the Iron Realms Entertainment President, Jeremy Saunders. It was Jeremy who once made a comment about SJ Saunders and I decided to follow. I can't wait to read these books and I encourage you all to go check out his books on or And follow him on FB. He's really an awesome guy!

    I love those rare moments when you think you did this really hard math problem completely wrong, and ask your teacher about it... and he's like, nope, that's perfect. If not for that, yesterday would have sucked.

    I still exist!

    The sketch for Alevi's portrait that I commissioned was done today and it looks great, looking forward to the full thing. The artist liked her description so much that she's going to do a full body one for me, too, which she doesn't do many of since they take time.

    Alevi arts :D

    I...want to be the person my baby Sister thinks I am.

    All of the warm fuzzies though, on a night I really needed them.
