Harvest Moon: A New Beginning has taken over my life.
Well, that and ice skating and not having money to make new cosplays. :I Gonna sell some stuff soon to rectify the latter.
As the UPS man closes the office door behind him, the sharp ‘click’ of the bolt dropping into place echoes painfully through my head, stirring awake a fresh new headache. My eyes narrow as he makes his way back to the brown truck parked out front.
“You better not leave my fucking video games unattended on the porch,” I whisper to his retreating back.
Which feels sort of cool, even though I have exactly 0 interest whatsoever in competing, but whatever it’s still pretty cool to have like, insurance in case I fall and shatter every tendon in my body
Tonight I also signed up for their ISI instructional pogram, which has 23 levels :X
On the 28th, they will give me a “test” of sorts and evaluate my skills
(or lack thereof), then place me into the appropriate class level~
I am a little butthurt looking at their page detailing the skill requirements for level placement, because I am pretty sure I dropped literally about 5 levels on this list in the last 2 years. :( And I still kinda sucked then.
whatever. I will just practice really hard again. somehow. it’s fine, it is not like I have a social life anyway~
SO EXCITE VERY EXCITE
I just got back from skating for the first time in a year, and I have this overwhelming feeling of excitement + inspiration + hope not unlike the one I (usually) get after a con. Even though my abilities have decayed SUBSTANTIALLY, the other skaters were so friendly, and went out of their way to meet me, applaud me, advise me, introduce me to the staff, and invite me back…
I keep taking for granted how wonderful it is to have supportive people around. Even if they’re strangers.
And I can’t describe how incredible the feeling of skating still is. It’s too beautiful and brings tears to my eyes. I don’t know if the tears were from joy or from the rush of cold air, but I’m surprised at how kind and interested in me everyone at the arena was, because I’m sure I seemed a bit insane. I’m so happy right now.
I’ve resolved to start practicing again, 3 times per week after work is my plan for now. However, I’m also going to look into seeing if I can take up a Freestyle course and find out what level I’m actually at now, and if I can afford it, get back into working with a coach again. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself.
But really. This stuff makes me easily just as happy as cosplay does, and it provides IMMEDIATE satisfaction… and it’s healthy. So I may ease off on “COSPLAY EVERYTHING” mode for a while. I’ll still cosplay plenty, because I love it, but I’m not going to focus on more than one project at a time if I’m going to start skating again. Although my inner nerd has already started daydreaming about ARTISTICALLY COMBINING THE TWO LIKE A TOTAL GEEK.
ugh god I am happy ♥

I am incredibly distressed by how close to home this horrible story path is hitting. But also fascinated and want to see what happens.
