Good Times, Bad Times

Good evening readers of this thing I call a journal.

I hope this entry finds you all well, as for me things are going pretty ok. I’m currently sitting here on teamtalk listening to the brand new FFDP (Five Finger Death Punch) album and so far I’m loving it. They have become my new favorite band ever since their last album came out. I’ve always liked them since I first heard them but for some reason unknown to me they gained favorite status and I’m good with that. No, I haven’t forgotten about Disturbed who still rank very very high up there for me but FFDP are my new go to band when I’m angry. I suggest you check them out if you are into metal, they won’t disappoint. For anyone interested the new album is called F8. I’m pretty sure that stands for Fate. LOL!

To get one thing out of the way, remember in my first entry of this year I promised that by the end of the year I’d have my name that I was going to stick with? I have chosen! Yay! The new name I’ve decided to go with is: Winter Skye Fox. I have thought long and hard about what I wanted in a name and did some meditating over it and it was down to three names. Winter, Summer and Oaklynn. I decided that I wanted a nature themed name and at first I was going to go with Summer since that was the season I was born in but came to the conclusion that it was too common and a bit cliche, it was then down to two. I really liked Oaklynn but since that is one of the names I use in a game I play I didn’t wish for that so then I chose Winter. Winter is totally opposite of Summer and I’m not cold like the name suggests but I find it very pretty. I spoke with a few people including my therapist and she told me that ultimately it was my decision so I thought on it for a while. My fox says the name is pretty as well but before deciding I slept on it and finally I said to myself, Self? You are Winter but now you need a middle name to go with it. Again I thought long and hard about this as well and came up with Skye. Winter Skye, I like how they go together. I’m spelling it S K Y E instead of the traditional way. Fox? This shall become my last name as soon as The fox and I are married. She wishes to change her name to Elsa Farah Fox and so once this happens and we are married my last name will change to that. From now on when I’m writing about my fox I will refer to her as Elsa.
So there you have it, my name when I can finally legally change it will be Winter Skye. Please please forgive me for all of the confusion and all of the changes.

A cool thing has happened or at least it could be very cool.
I went for a job interview on the 11 of February and both the interviewer and my job coach said that I did very well. They seemed very interested and willing to help with anything I needed to make my job easier. To me this sounds pretty positive but I’m not getting my hopes up too high but at the same time I remain optimistic. Here’s to hoping i hear something soon, it will be good to get back to work again.

The more i learn about where i live the more it makes me wish to get out sooner than later.
The maintenance issues are slowly starting to get taken care of however I’ve learned some sort of scary stuff. I can’t remember but I thought I may have written about how our landlady doesn’t do background checks on her tenants before they are allowed to move in here. Well, I’ve learned that we had neighbors living above us that were cooking and selling meth out of there apartment and that another one of the neighbors that was living in the same building went totally bonkers and killed his dog. Since we’ve moved here about seven months ago the upstairs apartment has had three different people living up there. I don’t know about you but I don’t wish to live anywhere that meth is being cooked or distributed and Elsa certainly doesn’t need to be around that stuff. She’s been doing very well with her sobriety and we’d both like to keep it that way. We want to do this legally though if we are going to do this. Honestly though I’m worried and kind of frightened. I hate feeling like that and I shouldn’t have to in my own home. I know things like this can happen anywhere but at least in a secure building I’d feel so much safer. Elsa totally agree with me on this, I’m so tired of moving but if it’s what we need to do then we just need to do it.
They are coming next Thursday to put in all new carpet in the living room and the hallway and that will be a good thing. It’s about time, we don’t have to worry about the tack strips after that either.

Happy Feb 29, leap year day!

I’m sitting here watching the my baby first channel, why you may be asking? Because I can, LOL! There isn’t crap on TV right now and so this is what i chose. Don’t judge me. LOL!

On a more serious note, the dolphin hunts in Taiji Japan are finally at an end till September. I’m so glad for this as they will be able to swim free for a while. I don’t understand why the hunters do what they do. Dolphin meat is filled with mercury and other things a human should not be consuming and yet the hunters slaughter them for food and they don’t alert their people as to what they are actually eating. They mix it in sushi sometimes and it’s just not good. I have done my research on this and that’s what I read. They shouldn’t be offering up dolphins for food and try and pass them off as other fish. The toxins that are in the meat can be deadly for people and it disgusts me that they don’t know what they are eating.
Don’t get me started on capturing them for captivity, the conditions in which they are forced to live in are awful! These hunters make a ton of money when they capture a dolphin for performances. Depriving them of food if they don’t do what’s expected of them is wrong, not to mention the abuse they suffer at the teeth of one another. It’s the same for Killer Whales. The tanks where they reside are no where big enough for the dolphins to swim the way they normally would in the wild. There have bene reports of dolphins for a lack of a better phrase “trying to commit suicide” because they can’t play and they don’t stay with their own pods like they would in the oceans. Anywayu, I went off on a bit of a tangent but I feel so strongly about this issue. I’m just glad it’s over for a while.

I have started drinking lemon water and it seems to be doing my body good. I have more energy now and I just seem to feel a lot better than I have been lately. Yay for feeling better and having more energy! If you like lemon you should really try lemon water, it’s awesome!

Ah well, since I can’t remember what else I was going to write about I’ll end here for now. I’ll write again soon…I hope. :P.

Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.
Self-care is a wonderful thing.
