End of year post  
Life
I got cats! Susu and Suhina, two black and white, really kind fur babies. I've learned so much about cats and worried and rejoiced. There is more laughter in my life because cats are silly. And they are soft and they purr.

Things at uni have progressed quite well otherwise, but my issues with anxiety seem to be getting worse instead of better. Namely, I get stomach cramps during things like seminar days, and even if I'm at home during my free time, I seem to have this feeling of nervousness in my tummy. I'd like to learn some exercises for relaxing, but I'm also at that point where I wonder if I should seriously reach out to a doctor. This is very scary to me. I will probably continue postponing making the decision. I don't know why it seems that things are only getting worse. Everything otherwise is going so well. I got funding for another year of studies, I'm doing what I want to do, I'm a bit lonely but the cats help. Everyone at uni is incredibly friendly and helpful and keeps telling me I'm doing great. And still I feel so stressed. It doesn't make any sense, I hate it.

Travels
I only made one trip abroad, to see Garbage in London. It was fun and Garbage was awesome; so proud of them and proud that I'm their fan and glad that I could be there. Travelling though, in general, doesn't feel as much fun as it used to, to me. I don't know if it's because I have cats now, though admittedly I've had somewhat mixed feelings from my travels already for the past 2-3 years. I find it so tiring now, and maybe like I'm not getting as much out of it as I'd like to. I don't have romantic, idealistic views about places (anymore?), so I don't see myself being the person who says things like "oh yes, Tokyo is a WONDERFUL place!". I can list reasons to visit, but I sort of lack enthusiasm. I think travelling has in some ways become something that I have to do to get certain experiences (seeing Garbage live, for instance) and not really worth it just for itself. It can also be really stressful. My view might change if I had a partner whose company I genuinely enjoyed, but until that day, mehh.

I'm also not looking forward to the first time I need to go to a conference abroad. lol Combine the stress of an academic environment where I need to prove myself, AND travelling on top of that. I will probably die inside.

Gaming
Is fun lawlz I am going to sample a new game every week next year, so that will be fun or really awful.

Television
Uhhh see my posts for the best TV shows ever...

Hello! Project
A shit-ton of new members were announced or debuted this year. Like 28 or some shit like that. I'm both excited and a bit worried and overwhelmed. Tsunku stepping down as a producer in H!P has been sad, but I've also enjoyed the H!P songs that weren't written by him. As a person, though, I've come to respect him even more. One of the reasons why I had faith in H!P all these years is because the main producer was a genuinely good guy. I hope that the people taking over have similar ideals and respect for the members.

XDDDD Thanks! My adorbs silly babies...

Aw thank you twissie ♥ I remember when you got the referral. It's weird, online the advice seems to be that if it's affecting/limiting certain parts of your life you should go see a doctor, but then you can't be sure you will get the help you want/need anyway.

LOL YAS I've actually been looking at some streaming options, even installed some programs, but then I'd have to have the courage to first test the stream and... I might have to set it up every week so I'm not sure I'll have the time/energy, but at least it's an option 8)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! ^_____^ I wish you the best with all your adventures, too!!
