...I have clawed my way through a semester of shit and can now do the flailing arms dance in the rain.
Sorry guys, I know it's been a loooooong-ass time since I updated my journal, but this semester has been absolute hell. It's like my home university wanted to kick my ass for having a good time in Japan. Such wonderful features of my semester have included:
Having three literature classes, one history class, and one communications class, which meant constant reading and many essays both long and short.
Getting into a car accident and subsequently being good and broke for a month.
My girlfriend and I having to press sexual harassment charges against her dorm mate. Seriously, bitch stripped purposefully in front of me several times and then one night drunkenly shoved her naked pelvis near my girlfriend's face. That, and when my girlfriend went to the RA for help, the RA tried to play it off like it was our fault for being a couple.
Work. For some reason, my supervisors and new manager at my on-campus part time job just seemed to have it out for me this year. Customers too.
Increased levels of homophobia on our supposedly gay-friendly campus. If we hadn't been dealing with the sexual harassment case, my girlfriend and I could have brushed it off. As it was, getting stares and gawks and outright discrimination was doing a good job of beating it into my head that I am less than human to these people because of who I love.
Dealing with a lot of personal stuff involving myself and people I love, and having to deal with learning some things about people's pasts hat made me scared, angry and sad.
My parents are moving out of state to support my brother as he enters college. I'm not worried about living on my own, but I will miss them terribly.
It's been a tough-ass semester. However:
I did manage to secure a job at Goodwill over the summer, and I will most likely continue it through the school year. The people seem fun and the store has amazing stuff. Yay for employee discounts!
My girlfriend and I did win our sexual harassment case against her now ex-roommate. The roommate is not allowed to contact us in any way, shape or form, and she is under probation by the university.
My girlfriend and I, as a couple, have managed to come through all this hell and are now stronger for it.
I'm now 21, and many of my also 21-year-old friends will be around over the summer to hit the bars with.
I'm getting re-inspired, as you see from recent submissions, and I can finally get to work on my Barbossa cosplay this summer.
I have my own apartment, with a gaming system and a giant television, so I can have friends over to hang out. My girlfriend's cat also lives with me and my Christmas present kitten, and it is magical. My kitten is named Quentin Collins. Awwwww yeaaahhhhh.
Sorry for all the bullet points, but it's easier than rambling on and on in endless paragraphs. Things were tough, yes, but now life is coming back together. Art will start rolling in more regularly, and I'll get back into my DA account. You guys have been great fans, both the fans that have been following me for years and the ones just catching on (Where have you guys been? Hahaha!).
Anyway, it's good to be back!
