It occurred to me today that I should update this blog. And the other blog, for that matter. My disappearance from the blogosphere can be explained in one word: school. Summer courses are incredibly difficult. I’m currently taking a course that condenses 16 weeks of material into 6 weeks. Absolute madness. I’m taking a shorter course as well. Even though I spent *hours* studying almost every day, I’m behind. Professors have a socially accepted form of torture.
So what else is new, you ask dear reader. Not a great deal. I and mine just went through a ridiculously difficult time of it regarding flashbacks. Something in therapy started a chain of SRA programming that threw me into near constant flashbacks for a week. My grip on reality was nonexistent for a few days, and I had to be very careful after my mind returned. The memories involved human experimentation and all sorts of lovely activities. Odd things turned into triggers, so I had to become *very* aware of my internal climate, lest I lose my grip and go completely off my face. Very happy to report that things have settled nicely since then. I’m back to the socially accepted torture mentioned above. 🙂
And my best friend and I are going away for a long weekend starting Thursday! We’re both quite excited. He could use time away from his semi-mad family, and I could use time away from studies. We’re going to a nearby city that we both enjoy and haven’t visited in quite some time. It will be absolutely lovely. Hopefully, I’ll get a few nice photos out of it (and scan them in since my digital camera is now resting at peace) and a few nice memories as well. We are both looking *so* forward!
That’s my blogging update, then. Classes end in a few weeks, and I’ll make my grand re-entrance to the blog world soon after. 🙂
