So I’m not apparently sick after all. It seems like it was the usual case of my body toying with me like:
"A-HA! I SEE YOU’RE FEELING SICK. YOU’RE SICK. TAKE ALL THE PILLS EVEN THOUGH I KNOW YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE ANY LIKE EVER BUT I’M FORCING YOU TO DO SO I’M THE POWER ALMIGHTY MUAHAHAHAW"
And the next day: “Yeah okay false alarm my bad.”
(Also, I slept like a lug. I went to take a nap yesterday evening, woke up four hours later. Then I was up for four hours and fell asleep in the middle of everything. I woke up ten hours later today in the morning.)

*MUCH HUGS* Be sure to rest the weekend so it won’t get worse! My plague lasted all week because I didn’t stay in bed. ;_;

*hug* goooood job darling! you did it! now get your woolly socks and some hot drink. You can do it!
Thank you guys <3 I went to bed immediately after posting that, listened to Harry Potter audio book, apparently fell right asleep and I woke up just now, feeling much better. Let’s see if it stays that way until tomorrow. :’>
Just yesterday I wrote a convention report of Tracon and stated how lucky I was to not have caught the con plague, especially when I was practically half naked and bare footed in chilly autumn weather as Chel. But today I’m actually feeling very sick with this soar throat, heavy head and burning eyes. Ughhh, I obviously jinxed it. Whyyyyy.
Also I still have way too much work to do for school because of all the overlapping courses and hnnngh I just can’t. Still have four weeks to go until one of the courses ends.
Ughhh I want a hug. *snort*
Luulen vähän että Frosti tulis liian nopeesti ja ois aika kylmä mutta siellä viime Desun Disney-posse uusii ryhmänsä ja Pocahontasta ei ole vinkvinkcosplaywithusvinkvink
Ei se oo niinkään siitä, et Frosti tulis liian nopeesti, mut mullahan oli aluksi Sokka ja Tali suunniteltu sinne ja koska olen Frostissa taas melkein koko lauantain töissä, päätin, etten halua jättää Talia vaan bäkkärille pyörimään. Se on siis kahden päivän puku, enkä toista Frostiin ota ja siirsin Sokkankin sen takia Yukiin. Muuten ois ollu jees.
kannattaa hei sit varoo amerikkalaisii kosk ne tulee heti huutaa whitefacee jos valkonen cossaa poc hahmoja :/ MUT MUUTEN DO IT GURL TEKISIT KUNNIAA!!
Mulle ei jostain syystä oo Franista tultu sanomaan yhtään mitään, vaikka siinä on niin selkeesti oman ihon väriä muutettu. Chelistäkään ei ole (vielä) kuulunut mitään. Ihan ihmetyttää, miten oon välttynyt rasistihuuteluilta. Mutta joo, en oo kuitenkaan tekemässä mitään radikaalia muutosta joka poikkeais kummemmin tavallisesta rusketuksesta, et ehkei se ole niin iso juttu. Ja jos on, niin nauran, koska hyvää päivää nyt oikeesti. Mut jee, kiitos luottamuksesta. :>
I’ve been wondering about this from time to time since I started doing cosplay and now I think I have an (not so important) announcement to make.
It’s really a miracle I have never made a Disney princess cosplay keeping the fact in mind how damn important all those animations are to me. I have thought about some costumes I’d like to make someday, like the brown dress of Aurora’s, the blue dress of Ariel’s, or the blue (or green!) dress of Belle’s. But there has always been one certain movie that has had my heart since I was 4 or 5, and that is Pocahontas. I love the movie to bits; its music makes me shiver, the style has such a distinctive yet somewhat realistic touch to it, the characters touch my soul in every way and the story makes my heart ache. Put all these things together and you will always get me to cry throughout the movie every time I watch it. Pocahontas herself is such a powerful character who has so many things I admire in a character and she is definitely the most important Disney princess to me. I have also thought that I don’t have what it takes to cosplay her, so sadly it has never been an option for me.
But, now that I have cosplayed Chel and I think I did rather well with it, I’m seeing things very differently when it comes to cosplaying Pocahontas. Maybe I actually could pull it off. And even if it wouldn’t be that great of an outcome, after watching the movie yet another time today, I’m at my limit here. I need to make my own “ode” for the movie someday, and cosplay is the way for me to do that. So there will be a day (hopefully within a year or two) when I have the time to make this happen.
Minulla saattaa ehkä olla joku kuva siitä, kun pyörähditte lavalla. (Mikäli muistan oikein) Harmi kuitenkin ettei keritty nähdä ;_;
Oo! Ois kovin kiva, jos sulta joku semmoinen löytyisi! Ja harmi, ettei nähty, pandakin oli mukana kanssa ja kaikkea. Pääsin lähtemään bäkkäriltä vasta vähän kisan jälkeen. :c
I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.
Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”
#613: How do I reach out to my friends who have depression? | Captain Awkward
P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”
Yes to all of this.
Oh god this this this
