@mikbuster: Yay! No spoilers please!

Seeing a therapist usually doesn’t involve this much laughter.

Also, I got a chance to see my lovely adopted sister, I had not seen her for a long time. She’s found yet another bad employer (it seems almost all schools are bad, and it’s difficult for her to find other kinds of work), and is at risk of burn out again, but it was still great to see her.

Darth Vader dies (at the end of episode 6) :P
So does Anakin Skywalker, actually
Vader is Luke's father
In episode 7 there are awesome fight scenes and the Force is used. :D

Anyone do Disney Infinity 3.0 or have a friend who does? I bought the Poe Dameron just for the figurine, I'm lead to believe there's a digital code inside (he looks so good in the box that I might not open him up right away). If anyone could put the code to unlock the character to use, DM me and I'll give it over.
The notes of this paradoxalist do not end here, however. He could not refrain from going on with them, but it seems to us that we may stop here. - Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground (trans. C. Garnett)

So I changed my dating strategy to “make lots of friends and then wait for a hug from one of them to get out of control sometime”. Of course, changing a dating site profile to “I think I may get rid of this, anyway I’m only looking for friends now” necessarily is followed by someone cool becoming interested in me.

She’s more... how shall I put it... short haired than my usual type, and lives in a neighbouring country, which makes her farther away than I’m usually willing to travel, but I’m warming up to her and am willing to give her a chance. We spent a lot of text talking about religion; she asked about that, which is a very good way to gain my sympathy.

We’ll see if this will become A Thing.

Lia's gonna get some! ;D

I got this app to keep track of my cholesterol, and I am KILLIN' IT. The most I've had in a day was 89mg. Normal people can have 300mg, and those of us with high cholesterol can have up to 200mg. It's only been five days since I started, but if I can keep this up maybe I won't need meds when they check me again in April. :D

She backed off a bit when I hinted there are things she doesn’t know yet which she might not like. Which was to be expected. I wrote further explanation, and now the messaging system is not working :/ .

I’m sure it’s going to evolve back to a happy thing from being a neutral thing now.

Guess what I just got in the mail?

A therapist-signed piece of paper needed to change my official gender!

Today is a happy things thread day.

Package delivery! I got my two books (about religious subjects) and flaming chalice pendant (that’s the logo of Unitarian Universalism). The pendant is important because I had made a new year's resolution to make my personality and opinions more visible, and wearing something for people to ask about is a really easy first step.

One minor thing to complain about: import taxes: 2.25 euros (OK!); processing costs: 13 euros. WTF, customs? This stinks of protectionism.

My sister is in the Netherlands. My hairstyle has now been improved, and she gave me one of her... erm I’m not sure about English words for clothing. Thin sweater? I’m not sure how it’s possible we have the same shoulder width. My arms are longer, though.

It’s nice to at least have one member of the family who has no difficulty accepting me for who I am. Too bad she lives so far away.
