One of my succulents grew this lil green sprout out of the top, and it started flowering. I got some not so great news back from the hospital today and am being sent back for more testing, but these little flowers remind me that everything's gonna be all right. 🌱

*insert standard complaints about health shit here* We're gonna play the "how long can my car go without seeing the mechanic this time" game. The record this year has been about two months. Here we go...

Homemade lattes are life // My car broke down today. Again. Rip me and my budget.

Trying to make up for my recent inactivity by posting more dumb photos of my face as I sit here and watch mediocre anime. It's probably not working.

Went to a waterfall the other day // I need a vacation from vacation. Is that even a thing? I'm tired.

My look today // I've had a good weekend, but I've socialized like once, so I'm exhausted, haha. I'm sore and tired but so happy that the semester is over. It's finally starting to sink in. I'll be taking a few days off to relax (and of course spend extra time at the rink), and then it's back to being involved in research in my lab. Hope you all had a good weekend!

#tbt to this wonderful memory with my favorite, in the time before the beard // I'm officially a senior as of today! Junior year tried to kill me, and I took some hits to my health and gpa, but I persevered. One more year until graduation. I got this.

Gluten free, vegan, and delicious muffin from the coffee shop last week because I can barely eat anything right now ;-; // I've been so sick lately and honestly it's just tiring. Hopefully my body will decide to tolerate food and physical activity again after the stress of finals ends? Right now I'm pushing myself to eat (because, you know, it's necessary) and still go to the rink a few days a week despite the fact that most of the time, it's hard for me to walk room to room. This month has been super challenging so far, but I'm trying my hardest to persevere. Hoping things look up soon!

I look older without eyeliner or extensions, but I still need to get used to the change before I can go out like this // Finals are almost over! Two exams, three days, and then I'm free. This week though... I'll probably be less active than usual until Thursday. Time to try not to die in 8 AM exams!

From last week // I finally get a bit of a break! Two more exams and then I'm done for the semester, thank god. I got this. I hope everyone is doing well!

I'm fine, photo explanation incoming! // Sorry I've been so absent from IG lately; finals week has been kicking my ass. I've also been feeling exceptionally shit so that's not helping, haha. It's probably just stress. But I got a QSART today! It's a test to see whether my small fibers are affected and causing some of my symptoms. Hopefully the results will be useful to my treatment. This was such a fun test- it was the easiest one I've ever done, and as a bonus, I got to lie down. I almost passed out checking in at the hospital desk so getting the chance to rest calmed my dysfunctional autonomic system down enough for me to walk unassisted to my car after. I'm glad about that; I hate having to ask for help, and while I'm not in great shape, I've been more and more involved in athletics lately. Mostly skating. But that involves being in good enough shape to walk, so it's frustrating and embarrassing when that doesn't happen. But yeah, it was super easy, and for once I was on the receiving end of electrodes, so that was cool. I realized I don't talk much about the actual testing and treatment I've done for my illnesses. I might start sharing more of that. It's a part of my life and I think only good can come of sharing stuff like this in case anyone can see it and feel less alone. Anyway, I hope you're all doing well!

Not our best photo, but not our worst, especially since this is the first decent quality photo of us in the last few years // In the midst of exam and general life stress, I'm reminded of how fortunate I am to have such an amazing support system. Alex, @vap0rgh0st, @raisingmorphinetoasts... I couldn't get through this stressful time without you. Same goes for everyone else who has taken the time to check in and do things with me (cough cough Benson) despite me being a stressed out ball of introversion, haha. I also really appreciate those of you who have sent good vibes my way; it brightens my day. I don't say thank you enough. So thank you 💕
