I got my hair cut off on Friday and I love it so much. I’m going to keep shaving off the sides but grow the top part out for a manbun.
That “party” I was worried about turned out to be like three people not including me. All we did was consume too much sugar and play cards against humanity at 4am.
There was a kitty!
I’m meeting up with an old friend who moved away on Wednesday, and I’m trying to secretly get all his other friends to come along and surprise him.
On Thursday I have a band rehearsal. I’m really honestly terrified about Generations this year. It’s turning me into even more of an emotional wreck, and I’m falling apart at tiny things because of it.
Then on Friday Eternal Skies wants me down at their rehearsal with them to help sort record and stuff, which to be honest is a good way to wind down.
I starred my first shifts at Target and it went alright. I mean, I have to use my deadname and old pronouns but I’m still coping.
I’m under a lot of stress lately, but I’ll get through.
We all will.

I wish I had the courage to idk…..grow out a fauxhawk or blossom into the modern punk I’ve always wanted to be but I cry for three days if someone in public looks at me for longer than three seconds and sulk for a week if someone gives me constructive criticism
