Hey guys!

So it's been a while again. Three months, I think? I'm really bad at keeping this journal updated. It's so much quicker to send out a few tweets, and connect with people that way, whereas updating here usually requires me to carve out an hour or two to actually sit down and stop myself getting distracted. I miss this place when I'm away, though. So much.

Livejournal is the only place I feel like I can talk about the ~more important things, though, without it fading away into the void. You guys always make me feel heard and a little less alone, and I guess that's why I'm back here now.

We've been living in my mum's partner's apartment for the last three years, and he's asked us to leave now. So that's that.

In a just under two weeks we'll be moving back in with my grandma.

And, gosh, I feel so awful complaining about it, because my grandma is being so wonderful by offering to take us in and at least we'll have somewhere to live, so it could be worse, you know? But I felt so settled here, and it was the happiest I think I've ever been. And... I don't know, I just thought we were done with this. I thought I had a home and now I'm going back to living out of a suitcase. I'll be sharing a room with my mum, and I'll need to close my Etsy shop because I'm not really going to have any space to work from, let alone an internet connection. And the money I'd been saving up for my own place will go towards Mum, Rob and I getting somewhere together instead.

It's such an immature reaction, I know, but I just want to kick and scream and shout that the world isn't fair because this sucks.

We've managed before, though, and we'll manage this time.

ANYWAY, I'm going to post this and then write another entry up about the all good things that have happened in the past few months because POSITIVITY!!!! Basically I just want to tell you all about that time I met Lana Parrilla <3

How are you all? Has 2016 been kicking your butt as much as it has mine?
I probably have most of you on Twitter/Tumblr/etc already, but leave your username if you want, I don't want to lose touch with any of you because I'm less active on here these days.
