There’s a lot been going on in my life. I live in the city where George Floyd was murdered. The riots were less than 2 miles from my home. I had to relocate due to the smoke and debris in the air and the white supremacists going around. I’ve been staying with my girlfriend, for whom I don’t think I have a set name for yet. I’m going to call her Gecko. Gecko and I have been dating for 6 months now. We’re already talking marriage and moving in together. I don’t mind her touching me. I actually love physical contact with her, which is something I have never liked with anyone.
My mum was dying and is still dying, just slower. She was put into a care facility on hospice basically, but then she lost a bunch of weight and now she’s no longer on hospice. She was allowed to go home a few weeks ago. She’s still a fucking bitch, but we’re glad she’s no longer in the facility because they sucked and also because they had an outbreak of Covid-19 starting.
My top surgery consult is next month. Less than 40 days away. I’m super excited. Gecko said she’ll go with me and she’ll take care of me. Kuma-chan is going to come up when I have surgery and help too. I want to lose some weight for top surgery so I can get the best results possible. This is something I’ll have to discuss with the doctor about first.
My girlfriend and I got rats together. She has two and I have two. We figure, this way, if we broke up for whatever reason, we’d still have bonded pairs each. I doubt we’re going to break up. She let my brother and sister-in-law and their two kids move in as lodgers to get away from our mother. Gecko is an amazing woman.
I am excited to go back to school. I applied and appealed my suspension and got approved. So long as I’m only part-time and not full-time, I can keep my section-8 and section-42. I’m okay with slowly going back so I’m used to school stuff again. Thanks to Covid-19, I can do online courses during my probationary period. Prior, I would have only been allowed to do on-campus courses. Learning more and more about my sensory issues and my problems with academics stemming from my autism, I feel like online courses are my best bet. I got all A’s and B’s when I did online courses previously.
For school, I apparently have to pay $562 from a rescinded loan that Exacerbating Ex had forced me to get. Kuma-chan has offered to lend me $250 to help me. I just paid that exact amount myself. That will just leave $62 dollars. Once I get that paid off, I can register for classes. I want to take an Art class (drawing) and College English. Both are classes I’m having to retake. Spring Term, I’m planning on Maths and Stress Management. If I have any grant money left over, I’ll also attend for the Summer term with a Chemistry class and probably a Biology class.
I have noticed I don’t have as many night terrors when I’m sleeping with Gecko. I very rarely get activated when we’re having sex, too. She’s just such an amazing person.
That’s pretty much it for right now. My attention just died.
Thank you and I hope you are all well.
