The Vlog Didnt Work

Advertisements

In case you missed yesterdays chat, I recorded a vlog to upload. Looking at the stats, it looks like at least 3 views were made on that video. There may be someone out there who has seen that video and I’m kind of excited about it. Now, was it because I had nothing written? Fucking maybe... Am I now rushing to have something to talk about? Stop asking me these questions me... But yeah, here I am today giving a summary on what I was talking about.

The Video

I started with just an introduction. Oh well I guess I could just redo that...
Hi there! I’m Deryn, I’m twenty-three and I live in the Okanagan, which is about three hours outside of Vancouver. I sat in front of my webcam for a half hour rambling all awkward. No one is going to see the constant barging in of my cats though, which is too bad. Shadow really needed my love and attention.

Dune is going well. About sixteen hours left according to Audible. After I finally finish that book, I’ll have so many new books to read! I’ve got like, maybe two book cases of stuff to read. Instead of finishing Dune and then buying new books, I just get new books and put off reading. Does that make sense? No, not a whole lot, but I do it anyway. Plus there’s all my writing. OH HEY MY WRITING! There are some shorts I have in the works.

Two shorts actually. Well, that and some poetry that will never see the light of day. I find my poetry really, smutty. That and who wants to read the smutty poetry from some love struck young adult? You know what, I’ll just stop talking.

Catch me on Saturday for a stream from probably noon until five for some games on my twitch, and you can even find my schedule there! Being able to share more stories there is just, so much fun. Plus, I occasionally brutally sacrifice Sims. It’s great! Technically, there’s a lot more I talked about, but it was mostly rambling and filler words.

After That

I don’t really have much else to add. Since the links worked, I’ll probably leave yesterdays broken post up. Plus, then you can laugh at my mistake with me. But that’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by and stay safe out there!

An IUD

Advertisements

I’m supposed to get one of these things today. But of course, I had literally zero time for space between bookings that I also have the ultrasound today. So this morning, I’m not supposed to pee and the anxiety is building. Which rationally, doesn’t make sense, I’ll be fine, it may hurt but not as much as bleaching my scalp did so… This is a… TMI style post, so if you don’t want to read about it, I don’t blame you.

A Joke for You

The Drive Home

I was at my boyfriends place for the weekend, so he’s taking me home, then I’m going to my ultrasound as he has his own appointment, and then he’s taking me to get the actual thing put in. When I was first telling him about the IUD he had just been playing Destiny 2, he made the joke of it being an IED, so we’ve been joking about that a lot.

I’m anxious, and I’m sure that’s normal but I’m still trying to rationalize it. I feel like after my hair and this stupid thing is finally in, I’ll be prepared to get a tattoo! I’m probably full of shit but whatever... Once I get through this, I’ll be all good. Onto the first appointment.

The Ultrasound

Lol so apparently if my bladder isn’t full enough I may have to reschedule entirely. I haven’t been called in yet so I won’t know until then but I am STRESSED.
The doctor was very nice, and we got it done. Won’t have results for a few days, which is fine. I’m glad that’s over with though, that was weird. Which only means the IUD is going to be worse... So far everyone I’ve talked to has been very nice. I’m thankful because this is a lot. 

MIDNA!

The Actual Insertion … Thing

That was a bizarre experience, but it worked out. Turns out there’s some health things I need to worry about in the future, but it’s there and ready to go. So, let’s see how I do going forward! The doctor kept asking “are you okay?” and all I could say is that the situation was weird. 

Afterwards

My amazing boyfriend stayed with me through it all and has been so supportive. He drove me there, and is now driving me home. Surprisingly, I’m in no pain. Honestly it’s great though because I’m a wimp. My mental on the other hand is a little fucked…

My wife is home now, so we’re going to go and enjoy the rest of the day. I’ll check in tomorrow and do a quick comparison.

Selfie of us!

The Next Day

Percy is so annoying when he’s screaming… So I guess I’m awake. Anyway, morning, how y’all doing? As for everything that happened yesterday, I’m still totally fine physically. But today I’m probably going to look for a family doctor and get blood work done. Woo, so yeah, all in all, the experience wasn’t the worst.

I’m thankful for the people in my life who check up on me and are around. I don’t think I could have done this by myself.

Some Other Updates

It’s June! Which means Pride month, and enjoying the summer heat! Catch my adventures hopefully happening more for the next few months. I’m going to look into vlogging too. For now, don’t forget to catch my streams

Stay tuned for all the new stuff I have planned, and we’ll talk soon! Be safe out there!

House Plans

Advertisements

Alright, I finally figured out what I want to do with my trailer. After planning and putting the numbers together, I’ve got a plan. This is so exciting. My place has some, issues in my brain. I’m ready to move on! Sorry this is late by the way.

My Current Place

So, my current trailer is worth money. I figure, sell this one and have it taken off my lot. Right? That makes sense. However, my trailer is two stuck together, so whoever buys it, technically only gets half. That’s still a two bed one bath trailer though. And this whole side has been rebuilt since all the renovations I did. The more I think about it, the more I’m torn. Selling it would help so much, but then what if it doesn’t sell?

If I Can’t Sell

I’m going to rent a bulldozer. Running over this trailer will feel so good. So I double checked with management, I’m not allowed to run it over. Going that route would mean doing it without consent. But the free therapy…

I’ll Still Need A Place To Live Though

And with that, there’s a few companies in town that actually sell modular and mobile homes. I’ve been in contact and have some rough quotes on what I’d need. With this new job, I don’t think I’d have to work a whole year to save up enough! But we’ll see, it’s up to the bank after all. Brand new modular homes are cheaper than condo’s, so I could do it if I tried.

Models? Size? Floor Plans?

This has been the best part! I love looking at floor plans for places and just seeing where I’d put everything. I’ve got a rough idea on the size of place I want, but I’m aiming for at least a 3 bed and 2 bath place. A bedroom for my work from home office and our (my boyfriend and I’s) computers, and then my current roommate and a place to sleep. It would be a HUGE upgrade from what I’ve got, but the biggest thing is the space. I don’t want to outgrow it too quickly. Or even if I grow out of it, if I take good enough care of it, sell it and look at a real house in the future. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

My plans are just starting to really flow, so I’ll have more info soon, stay tuned! And be safe out there!

My First Few Days

Advertisements

New job, same old house. In case you didn’t know, I got a “work from home” job working for a new telecommunications company. In the grand scheme of telecommunications, I moved from Bell to Rogers. Work desk lives pretty much behind my computer desk. Cramped doesn’t quite cover how this room is right now, but that’s alright. With said new job, this has been my first few days.

Dad and I went back to plant land

Day One is Always Fun

First day, starting off strong with a woodpecker on my roof. Bastard bird… I love woodpeckers, they’re cute and are honestly one of the better birds. But this dickhead, is on my roof. Roof ain’t good for bird. They’re endangered, so no harm must come to this bird. I must be creative in getting this feathered friend to leave. Apparently a plastic owl or even a pie plate on my roof can scare it off. Only thing is, I don’t want to scare the other birds too. Plus, my house is like, the bird sanctuary of the neighbourhood. I’ve got to get super freaking creative…

Oh, I guess I also had my first shift. First day was a good day! Met my “class” and learned how to play with the computer system Linux a little. Otherwise, work is work. 

My little dolphin

Onto the Real Learning

Day two has its own spice. We all introduce ourselves and spend hours learning about the company. I’ve worked some shitty jobs before, but the overall environment from this job so far is very, comfy. Feeling safe and like I can actually talk to people is amazing. Talks of inclusivity and helping our community are also very large topics for today. I’m lowkey really into this job..

Other than work, Percy is also an issue lately. The past little while he’s been sitting by the front door meowing for hours at a time, and like, I love him. But after only a few hours of sleep and he’s just whining at the door for about an hour makes me want to die. (Not really, but it sucks.) *As of the moment of writing this, Shadow almost died… Bastard tipped over a water glass and killed the power to half my trailer. So that’s cool… Poor baby, didn’t even know what happened. 

Best shot I’ve got of her yet

Anyway

This job is going to be a big part of my life for probably a long time, which means my streaming schedule is going to change. I’ll be trying to stream in the morning, starting between seven and eight, and going until about ten. Don’t worry, I’m still around. That and with a new job, and warmer weather, I’ll be blogging more too! So stay tuned for blog updates!

Drenched war horse

But Yeah

Life is fun right now. I know this is coming out at a weird time of day, but work and Shadow, it’s been a busy day. I appreciate everything from everyone, and I hope you have an amazing day!
