I'd like to make this page look similar to the rest of my site, but I'm unsure how to do that. This is fine for my purposes though, I think. This is also a test entry even though I copied this code from sadgrl's website.

Today was my first day at my new job. I barely got any sleep and got woken up by a phone call at 7:45am and was unable to fall back asleep, meaning I got maybe 3 hours of sleep last night. I have to wake up at 7am tommorrow and 6am the next day. I explicitly said I can't work those hours when I applied. I'd be fine with it if it was just for this week because I said "I'm basically free this entire week"...but my schedule is like that for next week too.

I've been spending a lot of time thinking about anarchists. For a while, I've been noticing that there's a pretty stark divide between people who only describe themselves as anarchists and anarcho-communists, both in coherent ideology and not being incredibly fucking annoying. I've been wondering why this is, and I definitely have many thoughts on this, but I'm unsure if I want my first page on politics to just be "my problem with anarchists, as an anarchist" because...nobody likes leftist infighting, right? I wouldn't want it to come off as starting shit for no reason, but these observations have just been bouncing around in my mind for weeks. I am not considering abandoning my anarchist ideals, don't get it twisted, I just think there's a bit of a problem here. Obviously there's dumbfuck ancoms too, there's dumbasses everywhere. That's a given. But...y'know. I have thoughts.

I've been working in chunks of 3-4 days in a row and have barely had time to actually keep up with creative hobbies, which is a bummer. Luckily, I have found a few days to add small things to this site and start the Gods & Spirits wiki on Miraheze with my partner. The way that's edited is much less time consuming than editing a neocities site though, for likely obvious reasons. I did have time to squeeze in a D&D session (as a player) for the first time in months. I'm lost as hell, but it'll be fun getting caught up, I think. I am writing this before I have to get ready to work some extended holiday hours, meaning I will barely see my partner today.

It's cold as hell today! -3F/-19C! I had to lend my partner my winter coat because temperatures that low are very unusual here. They haven't been common where I moved here from in a while, but they were definitely very commonplace when I was in school. I hope it snows.

Happy (belated) New Year! My partner is gone and so is our cat because I'm gonna take a train back to my hometown ( to visit my family and go to a few appointments tomorrow afternoon. I miss my partner and am very nervous about getting to the station on time, since I still don't know the area very well...I also have to take two separate trains on my way back and the one train stops in a city I've literally never been in (outside of driving through it on the way to the next state over) and I'm real nervous about that too. Everything will probably be fine, but...y'know.
