so, June 22nd-28th I will probably not be active on any site. Much. Idk.
I'm going to visit my grandma so yeah. I have 0 idea what I am getting myself into here (like apparently there's gonna be a family reunion and I don't even know the extent of that, nor do I know what she has planned for the rest of the time I'm there)
SO THAT'S HAPPENING.
I'm debating taking my tablet. I'm not sure if I will or not. I'm a little afraid of it breaking but I guess I can cushion it in my suitcase, idk.
Sooome stuff came up (like..minor stuff but it's thrown my plans out of whack) so I haven't gotten any art done...which is why I'm conflicted on the tablet situation.
I want to take it & work on my owed art, just gET ALL OF IT OUT OF THE WAY...but at the same time, like I said, I don't wanna break it.
So anyway, I'll have my phone of course but I don't even know what kind of area my grandma lives in so idk how the connectivity is.
(She used to live in NYC but she moved, I haven't visited her since.
This is my dad's side of the family where I am super out of the loop of current events lol.)
What I know for sure is that I WON'T be on Discord at all this week.
Oh, by the way, feel free to note me if you want my discord (only if I actually know you please).
Though, admittedly, if you want to talk with me, you'll probably have to start the convo. I'm just shy about it even with people I know, and I'm awful at making conversation @ ____@
Iiii mentioned in a poll that I got a mic adapter, and was going to start doing Twitch gaming streams!
Which also did not work how I thought it was going to. Turns out the adapter I got isn't compatible with my mic. Cool.
BUT I'm exchanging it for a different one on Amazon, which sHOULD be arriving wednesday, and if all goes well, I'll do a gaming stream then. The night before I leave. lol.
Oh but a lil bit of good new just for me, personally I guess lol.
Soo back in May I kind of was in a little car accident :'T
like everyone was ok, it was just a fender bender,
but it banged up my poor ol' lil car enough that it wasn't worth fixing.
It reALLY SUCKS because it WAS fixable. Just....it was 10 years old and probably not worth it.
Actually this happened the tuesday before my last journal lol.
so i haven't had a car for about a little over a month. Which, for someone who is usually running a lot of errands and keeping the household moving smoothly...it was not fun. I also felt really bad, anxious, and guilty, no matter how much my parents told me it really wasn't as detrimental and inconvenient as i sURE FEEL LIKE IT WAS. Any time I drove, I had to take my dad or sister's car (I refuse to take my mom's giant SUV anywhere, i refuse). My sister is almost always gone and my dad has work and all so...I didn't get to leave the house until 6:30-7pm. And then help with errands. At 7pm.
anyway all that backstory is because on Sunday tHEY SURPRISED ME WITH A NEW CARRR Q____Q
LIKE A B R A N D N E W CAR
I mean I knew I was supposed to get a new car as a graduation gift, but I just...got it early.
and the guilt and anxiousness have subsided a bit, which is nice.
this just takes huge weight off of my shoulders because now I can be hELPFUL around the house again (and not be stuck in my room until 6:30 at night god bless)
I honestly did not think I had a dream car - I knew what I wanted for my new car but I didn't think I'd find one that I just sat in and was like THIS IS IT
my mom and dad took me to test drive & check out prices on saturday, my mom told me "hey we're just figuring out which one you want, don't expect anything today", which I was like oh ok so maybe in July I'll get my car, y'know check out a few more dealerships, haggle the price and all...
noPE MY MOM WOKE ME UP SUNDAY AND WAS LIKE "HEY WE'RE GOING TO GET YOUR CAR GET DRESSED"
I WAS LIKE ALFH:ALSDJLKAJFDLA????????????
I just...oh my god.
I had to share because it literally made things so much less stressful for me. Like I'm still a little stressed and want to earn money for myself with all of this going on, but at least now I'm not stuck at home & I can help out more.. Hoo. Gosh. hoooo whee.
Anyway I talk too much, see ya guys later
