I really can't believe I haven't updated this since March of 2012, and I'm sorry about that! I hardly go on DA these days, and a lot has happened, some of which I'm still trying to deal with. But, to focus on the present, I'm currently going to a community college in hopes of raising my GPA so I can go back to my "old" college, where I was majoring in Creative Writing. The college I'm going to right now is okay - nothing great, but better than I expected, and I really like my Literature Into Film class, as well as the professor I have. Something about elderly people who don't give a fuck just brightens my day.
On a more personal note, I've been in remission for over two years! I'm hoping that soon enough I'll be considered cured, but for now I'll take what I can get. I don't need to go to CHOP for scans anymore; I only need to go every few months to meet with my oncologist and get blood work, but other than that, no more scans, no more worrying about not being able to eat/drink in preparation, and no more IVs! It feels funny, when I try to think back on having cancer, because it feels like it happened forever ago. It's a good feeling, having the past in the past. I just hope it stays that way.
Two things I'm looking forward to are Jaycon and AnimeNEXT. If all goes well, I'll be able to go to both as Black Widow, assuming I get my costume in time and it fits decently. If not, I'll probably just go as Velma or a Leafeon gijinka again, or maybe I'll be able to think of something/someone else to cosplay. All I know is I'm really excited and the end of March/beginning of June can't get here fast enough.
Also, and excuse me for sounding like a typical girl here, but there's this guy, and I'm like 90% sure I'm head-over-heels. The wonderful thing is the feeling is mutual, and although I'm not looking for a relationship just yet, I'm the happiest I've been in a while. I don't know how I got such an amazing guy to care about me, but I'm really happy and grateful he does.
Lastly, part of why I don't come on here as much as I used to is because I spend the majority of my time on tumblr. If you'd like to follow me, you can do so here: thatrandomgirl.tumblr.com/
I think that's about everything! Thanks to reading, for those of you who did, and again, I'm sorry it's been such a while. I missed you guys!
