We cry tears of sadness because you have gone away.
We cry tears of joy because you have gone away on amazing adventures among the twinkling stars.

If cats respond to being down by snuggling, then I am fucked.
I have literally cat tumors these days.
I swear I was a happier person once.

EDIT: I did this weeks ago, then it wouldn't post and I got annoyed with LJ.
Here I was going to post again and look what was sitting here?

Sophiawestern did it, and I said I would.
There has been a lot of darkness and doubt about directions this life is taking.
So, this might take time.

1. Purchase : I have put myself on a strict purchasing restriction since the whole no job/waiting for a locum post to come up.I only allow myself to spend what little money I get for writing online articles. So, its a very motivating reason to write (though they are rubbish reviews and like $3/pop). That said, I did splurge with what I had and bought a wee bit of happiness. It hasn't arrived yet, but I am counting the days.

2. Friends : After years of studying for my vet degree, I got to know some of my professors. When I became a locum virologist at the vet school, a number of them considered me colleagues (some still treated me like a student and bossed me around). One of the is a specialist in the field I am trying to get into. He is often my reference and is a friend on FB. I had sent a message about not getting the recent post despite being the most qualified. His response was kind and supportive and really did make me feel like I do have a chance and shouldn't give up.

3. Apprentice : One of THE researchers of feline viruses (who is actually retired) is doing some work in the lab next week. I asked if I could come and learn how to do the new assays, since its a technique I have no experience with. He said, of course. :) Sure its unpaid volunteerism, but its an opportunity to work with one of the legends in the field. Its silly but I am very excited. If my mentors happen to be my parents of virus research, then this researcher is the granddad. :)

4. Christmas : R. and I were quite sad that he doesn't have enough time off this year to go home at Christmas (which I have been going along with for 6 yrs now). But we've managed to get him time at NY's + for our Christmas I am taking him to his fav Chinese place (which actually has a Christmas dinner menu) for a different kind of Christmas.

5. ....spooky...my post didn't stick. The restore lost my last addition. Worrying.
Especially because I put Life: I mentioned that this year has been full of hard knocks and how I had been low a lot. That despite this the recent turn of events have helped me find my hope and fight again....when I had thought them lost.

Pretty positive? Dont you think?

Gutted. Like a Fish. In a Swimming Pool. Full of Mud.

Life is made up of millions of tiny little scars.
