My life is going well, the meds I am on are working even better than before I got sick when I was on the other medication. I'm happy about that. I've been working full time in a call centre doing surveys on this, that, and the other confidential thing. I don't mind it, as a job it's quite nice and I've even made a friend at work who I've gone out with a couple times. Last night I watched the Oscars with my mom, I was happy to see Diablo Cody win for best original screenplay. Juno was a really good movie, and it was her first screenplay!
Right now I am helping mom with her posters for her classes.
Oh HEY! I just now got my grant results from the Canada Council! $33 000 to make a short documentary researching my homelands! I am so super excited! I get to buy an Ipod and a Leather jacket!!!!!!!!!
Life is tickety boo man! Now I can quit my job! I will go back to it once my grant has dried up, but that won't be for months and months.
One of my cousins had her first manic episode recently, she's getting out of the hospital this week. She was on my mind almost solidly for about a month. I realized a few things from it.
#1, Manic episodes are nothing to be ashamed of.
#2, Sometimes people do very funny/cute things while manic.
#3, They tend to have a similar theme (ie, finding God in everyday small things).
So yes, Life is good, and I'm glad I've hung on through my difficult recovery to get to here, because . . .
NOW I GET A NEW IPOD! And that makes life better and better and better and . . .
