On a bigger scale, a lot has happened.
My country faced one of the first terror actions in newer times yet. An extremist attempted to commit two mass genocides, but only managed to kill one at his first attempt at a seminar on blasphemy in art, and at his second attempt also killed a guy at a synagogue where a bat mitzvah was taking place - said guy gave his life to protect the innocent people inside. The perp was killed later that same night.
On my end, it was a weird thing. I was doing the dishes, when my radio suddenly just stopped, and I thought to myself: "Something has happened." and when the radio came back on, they were telling that story.
I prefer not to dabble with politics if I can help it, mostly because it doesn't interest me, but the elections are coming up, and I can't help but wonder how they'll use it in their campaigns. All in all, I felt that we as a country stood together in unity against this extremist and his actions. I was concerned for some of my friends, but later found out that they weren't in the city that night.
On a smaller scale, guess who never managed to get out and work out.
I feel pretty bad, my body is getting bad and I don't like it, but I'm feeling overwhelmed right now, even if there isn't much going on. It's most likely just winter. I'm hoping I'll manage to motivate myself eventually, because it is affecting my self-esteem. I'm attempting to start by taking walks and not always shopping at the store across from my building.
Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day was alright. It started kind of weird, a guy I know confessed that he likes me, but I don't know if it was genuine or to get in my pants. The latter seems to be more common for some reason. No matter what, I did what I had done all night, and told him off. I don't like him that way, and I never will.
I spent the day preparing for my mom and brother to come over for dinner, and we had a really nice evening together. It's a very different family feeling depending on which of my parents I'm hanging out with, and after they've split it's suddenly become much easier to talk to my mom about everything. I'm really happy about that.
Other than that, I got a very nice Valentines Day gift from my neighbor in form of his wifi password, which is probably one of the best gifts I've ever gotten for Valentines, even if I have never met the guy, only heard him listen to music, do karaoke, bone ladies and break up with them over 20 hours.
I have a 7-week internship coming up next month. I'm really scared that I'll stand there and not know what I'm doing, or fail or whatever. So far I've only had little correspondence with the boss lady there, and she seems like she's friendly enough. I just have some super bad experiences with internships, and that's what's freaking me out. The place is relatively close to where I live though, so I can either take the bus or bike to there. Hopefully it won't be too overwhelming.
Thursday I might be going to Germany for a few hours with my dad. It's a thing we do where we border shop a bunch of sodas and beer for his friday bar at work, and we bond over that. It's gonna be nice, I hope.
I was invited for dinner at his place today as well, where my grandparents were also gonna be there, but I'm having a plumber over to look at a faucet tomorrow morning and I'm invited for dinner there Wednesday as well as his brother's birthday on Friday. I don't mind spending time with him, but I'd actually rather not see him 4 out of 5 weeknights in one week. Besides the grandparents are gonna be there Friday too anyway, so it's probably fine. Knock on wood. Things I should probably get done
- Clean out my closet
- Do laundry
- Make a dentist appointment
- Draw some more
- Do that one commission I haven't felt like doing on subeta, just so I can continue zapping my subetapet Giraffe.
- DRAW A SPARKLEDOG
