1. [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico has started auctions! I'm offering One Direction, My Chemical Romance, Dan and Phil, and Disney's Descendants fic here, but there's a bunch of different kinds of fandoms and types of things offered. Check more out here. Auction ends October 23rd.

Feel free to spread the Tumblr link too!

2. I felt very under the weather yesterday, and I'm not sure why? Maybe just a bad day. I can usually pick some kind of main cause or worsening factor, but I think yesterday was mostly just "you're chronically ill and you're going to have days like that sometimes". My planning format really came through, though - I did a couple of my most important things and let everything else go and went to bed early at least knowing that I did things to help myself long-term but that I was still listening to myself. Balance! It's a thing!

(Also working on forgiving myself when I don't do that, but that's what I'm in therapy for, in part.)

3. Wednesday Reading time!

Books. )

Pokemon Go post!

A month since my last post isn't so bad! I went to Disneyland at the tail end of an event and lucky egg'd while walking around in Downtown Disney, so I did a couple major evolutions. And then I leveled while I was there, and played in the gyms...really, I can't imagine I'll have so eventful a time by the end of the year as I did in the one week I was in SoCal.

The details. )

Wednesday Reading!

Me before my vacation: I'll have so much time in the car to read! I'm so excited. Even if I don't read, I can watch a lot of TV. And even if nothing happens on the road, I can do some reading in line for rides.

Me on the road: [sleeps a lot because of medication, has to deal with screaming kids when awake]

Me at the park: [almost never alone, absolutely exhausted when I am]

Me after vacation: ...oh well.

I did still make some progress on books in the last couple weeks, though.

Books. Talk of fat shaming, rape. )

In other news, I'm going to try to put up a Pokemon Go post in the next couple days. I did a lot of playing on the trip, and it was a delight!

Burn it down.

1. Oof, I've felt terrible all day. I think most of it is because of choices I made that could have been less painful, and I got a couple things done anyway, but my sleep has been weird lately and I'm feeling it. I keep waking up for various reasons before I've gotten enough sleep - today was sinus pressure, joy of joys - and then I'm too tired to do much but too awake to go back to sleep until like noon, and then I go back to sleep for a couple hours, but it's not the same as getting a full night's sleep at once AND I feel frustrated that I don't feel up to doing much of anything.

Anyway, fingers crossed I actually sleep tonight and that I feel less frustrated tomorrow. If I don't, resting is a big priority.

2. I've only watched the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery because I'm busy and access to the episodes is hard. (THANKS FOR NOTHING CBS. Would it have been so hard to make the episodes to buy on Amazon, at least? Also looking at you, American Gods, although it looks like they have them now.) I'm very sad that there's new Star Trek people are watching and talking about and I'm already so behind! I'm going to try to catch up this week.

3. Because I contain multitudes and can have both Star Trek and Star Wars be big fandom pillars in my life, Last Jedi trailer is a thing!!! Wow. Have more thoughts than anyone needs as I rewatch the trailer.

Star Wars trailer spoilers/speculation. Also original trilogy spoilers. )

1. Ah, Yuletide season! When everyone posts on the journal sites more than usual. (I'm barely posting once a week, so I have no room to talk there, heh.) I'm not doing it formally this year; I only officially sign up if there's a fandom I absolutely need to request because the stress of writing to an assignment is a lot for me. I will likely treat, but I'm waiting until December to say for sure. I could use the word count, but I'm working on original work and writing longer, so...maybe I'll write a long treat? It wouldn't be my first time.

2. This past week was the yearly Disneyland trip for the niblings' birthdays, and it was great! It felt more like I was jumping between three group's vacations than doing one; I hung out with Older Sister, Team Sister, and Team BFF at different times, with some overlap (there was a lot of quality sibling time, which was a surprising delight). I think I weathered it pretty well considering how long and intense it was, but I'm having a hard time remembering it all/it all feeling real, so I think I'm more overwhelmed than I'm actively feeling. All worthwhile, though. It's amazing that I've been to the parks so many times but each trip still has such a unique feeling.

A trip highlight: we all went to one of the Mickey's Halloween Parties on Tuesday, and we took pictures in front of the giant Mickey pumpkin. And Dosling was asleep in the stroller, so we got to be silly with it and gesture and stuff. I want to wallpaper my room with the pictures.

3. Who all is doing NaNo this year? I'm going to start outlining my story this week. I like the idea of being super structured and prepared this time around - at most, I usually get the beginning sketched out, and by the time I hit the middle, it's pure messy chaos. I don't need a nearly-finished draft, but lessening the chaos by the end would be nice!
