Here’s the next part of Katalyna’s journey…
I’ve been inspired to write about my online persona. She’s a level 110 Pandaren Shaman by the name of Katalyna, which coincidentially is one of my nicknames. Funny that. 😛 I thought I might start writing her story, her background. I like creating stories for my characters, it brings them to life for me and gives me an extra reason to want to play them.
Hah, I’m terrible at this one a day stuff sometimes! I get so tired after work, and then I have raids, and then I’m like ‘let me relax a bit’ and next thing I know I’m in bed.
For those not in the know, Raiding is killing internet dragons with my crew Premature Heroism in World of Warcraft. Three nights a week (Mon, Wed, Thurs) from 6pm to 8pm we sit down and chat and focus on killing pixels for more pixels of loot and to make our characters look awesome. I’ll post some pics of my Shaman sometime. I love her.
But, I digress.
Here’s another chapter of that story 🙂
I’ve been so bad the past couple of days, and for that I’m so sorry – you’re only really getting half a post today as well.
I’m pretty tired, mentally and physically. Monday was a lot worse than I thought it would be and the world I think was conspiring to break me.
So I took Tuesday off and wrapped myself in a burrito blanket and ignored the rest of the world.
It helped, a little. I’m in the process of getting in to see a counsellor through my work’s Employee Assistance Program which will help the feelings of despair, guilt, anger etc that I’m feeling.
I think I was so focused on getting through things. Christmas. The tattoo. New Year. The Funeral. The birthday. That I didn’t think about myself very much and now that I have time, I’m a bit more crumbly around the edges than I thought.
There are many kinds of strength, however. This, being able to admit that you’re falling apart at the seams and that you need to spend some time to stitch yourself back together? That’s strength of a kind.
So, short post tonight. But I’ll give you another chapter of the Air Book as I’ve been calling it probably tomorrow with Marcus and Alana and Sam and Kai and all that sort of good stuff. If you want to see more of them, let me know please! It was an idea I had, I spent a lot of time fleshing it out and really, I like the idea of Elementals (but only if I get to be the Water Elemental, hah!).
Much love and light y’all! ❤
I’m angry. This is politics. Don’t like it? Tough. Bad language ahead. Lots of fucks.
I am almost physically sick this morning. I can’t believe the news that I’ve woken up to. I’m SO angry.
How can anyone believe that this is a good thing? How can you, those who voted for this man, sit there and go “Well, he’s backing his campaign promises”?
DO YOU NOT FUCKING UNDERSTAND HISTORY?!?!?!?
When I am seeing shit on my news feed talking about HIDING FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING DEPORTED there’s a SERIOUS FUCKING ISSUE GOING ON. Anne Frank, the Holocaust, Jewish, Nazi DO THESE WORDS NOT MEAN A FUCKING THING TO YOU PEOPLE? ARE YOU SERIOUSLY THAT FUCKING BLIND THAT YOU CAN’T SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE?
American Citizens, American GreenCard Holders are being HELD. People who HAVE LIVES. People who live and work in the USA. People who have built families and contribute their taxes (unlike our current president of the USA) are being told they can’t go back to their jobs, their families, THEIR LIVES. These are CITIZENS.
Mike Pence, the current Vice President of the United States, has stated in the past that ‘Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional.” (Source: https://twitter.com/govpencein/status/674249808610066433?lang=en) This is Mike Pence’s stand on the Muslim Ban from 2015. This is his PUBLIC RECORD speaking out against this. Trump’s on VICE PRESIDENT is against this sort of thing, and has been.
What the actual fuck people?
How can you be happy about this?
How can you support this?
How can you sit back and go “well, it’s not my problem because I’m a white heterosexual Christian”? The world is no longer the 50s, so wake the fuck up and smell the fact that it’s crashing down around you. A wall for Mexico? It’ll fucking RUIN the US. You will end up paying for it. Mexican goods will come in 20% more expensive… you’re paying for that wall. Mexico stops trade. You’re fucked, because your economy is gonna suffer and guess what, you’re paying for that wall.
You CAN SUPPORT A FUCKING WALL TO BLOCK MEXICAN IMMIGRANTS BUT YOU CAN’T FUCKING SUPPORT FIXING THE WATER IN FLINT.
National agencies are now being banned from speaking. People are running scared. LGBTQI people are not sure who or what to trust anymore BECAUSE OF YOUR IGNORANCE.
Lord and Lady, people, YOU’VE ELECTED HITLER JR.
I tried so very hard to see and understand your points of view. I tried to say “Maybe it won’t be that bad”. I’ve tried to UNDERSTAND, by looking at the way your media is presented to you, by looking at the way that you see things. I’ve said “I Understand Why he was Elected” but this is too much. Banning people. People being STOPPED in the streets because of the FUCKING COLOR OF THEIR SKIN and being asked for IMMIGRATION PAPERWORK? CITIZENS BEING STRANDED OVERSEAS BECAUSE THEY WENT TO VISIT THEIR OVERSEAS FAMILY?
How is this right? How is this fair?
Would Hillary have been better? This shit wouldn’t have been happening, that’s for damned sure. I didn’t like her very much and I’m not a rabid pro Hilary supporter but this?
This is unteneable. Americans, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Welcome to the 1940s. You want Hitler? THIS IS FUCKING HOW YOU GET HITLER.
First off sorry for missing two nights in a row. January 26th was Australia day which is a combination of the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving for those in the USA. Fireworks, BBQs, and celebrating the invasion of a country.
The 27th was Sarah’s birthday and we celebrated it at the Osborne Park Hotel with food, drinks, and lots of laughter, and plenty of Tears. I’m not entirely sure I’m emotionally ready to rehash what happened but suffice to say it was a fun but emotional night.
I think tonight I’ll just add an additional chapter of the story that I’ve already got for y’all. Enjoy 🙂
