Omg it felt good to get out of this fncking house yesterday

Yesterday was the first day of my internship. It went really well. 🥳 They don’t even mind my magenta hair or tattoos. Gawd it felt good to chitchat and banter with people who share my main passions/values. It seems like a very kind, welcoming environment.

I’ve felt so isolated ever since the pandemic. You’d think as an introvert it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but after a few years of that, supplementing with SW periodically ehhhh 🫠

I’m also relieved they’re fine with my hair and ink. Warning the ‘professional costume’ wouldn’t have been the end of the world, but it’s nice when you can just.l be yourself at your job where you’re going to be spending a lot of your time.

In-person classes pick up again here this week too. The commute will suck, but I’m really excited to be regularly hanging out with people I can relate to on a meaningful level.

The pandemic really didn't bother me at all. I live by a small ass town so nothing was shutdown for long at all. I even notice people didn't wear mask for long at all around here

@smileylovesgaming 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have a shitty disease, so I had to keep to myself for a long time until they figured out how to treat people like me if we caught a serious case of it, but it’s less to do with Covid anymore. Last year or so it has more to do with the things I like happening at places and times I can’t go to to mingle with people I’d hit it off with.
