I'm in a place where I'm ready to start tackling my issues, I think, so I've been doing some research. The term PTSD has been thrown out, specifically CPTSD, since the bulk of the trauma I've faced was spread out over the course of a few years rather than a single event. I can't help but feel CPTSD is just "PTSD Lite" or "PTSD for people who don't actually have PTSD but want a cool label", and I know I'd never think that if it was a diagnosis applied to anyone but myself. I'd absolutely honor it as something real, but when it's me?
Apparently intense imposter syndrome is common in CPTSD. Hmm... I wanna look more into this.
I've spent the past three hours watching ILoveLanguages!' videos. Y'all, I just... I love Slavic languages so much. You hear people calling them ugly-sounding and harsh, but they're beautiful, and they're just so lovely to listen to. Will someone please join me in fawning over them? They don't deserve the negative reputation they have.
I am in no way biased by the fact that I have a Slavic girlfriend, of course. Slovak being my favorite in particular while she herself is Slovak is purely coincidence.
So apparently, according to their anime, Matcha and Azuki are... more or less actually in love? I still have yet to watch it (I plan to watch it through tonight), but evidently the gist of the last half is:
These are temporary mock-ups; as you can tell by the back of Matcha's box, I encountered some issues while working with them today. Our Print shop uses an older version of Publisher that doesn't support non-Latin script, so a lot of the text got either reformatted, ruined, or just straight-up erased. So I just focused on getting the sizing right, and tonight's project is re-formatting them appropriately and saving the PDFs so I can print out the true products (hopefully) tomorrow!
Mirai, my sweet child. I don't care how much people mock you. I love you and will always love you.
I'm contemplating covering Nun Girl and Idol Girl with her to really push how far I can take her voice, and Akari I'm wanting to put in the harmonies of a Matcha cover I've had in the works for a while. Hmm... what else can I do with these lovely ladies?
Phew... with the Fukase cover done and published (please go support it if you liked it! Comments on my video keep me going for days at a time ), I'm at a loss on what to do now. I've got several projects I've been working on, but that's been THE definitive "Hurry up and get it done, it needs to be finished", and now that it IS finished... hmm. What now?
I got a new spray to help get rid of gnats, and I got excited and sprayed it literally everywhere when I got home. Now my entire apartment is overwhelmed with the smell of lemongrass oil. Not a bad scent in moderation, but when you have two cats and autism-related hyperosmia? Euagh. I've got my air purifier on high and the window open (even though it is WAY too hot for that), so this spray had better work for all the trouble it's put me through.
Well, the Vocaloid updates will have to wait, because I’m an idiot who slipped while mopping the floors and now potentially has minor concussion. But rest assured, tomorrow I’ll be unable to shut up about my new girls~
