Well now, it HAS been a while, hasn't it?
Greetings once more, my delightful minions. How many of you remain at your Headmistress' side is debatable, but I can see why. After months of inactivity, I am attempting to be at least SOME manner of present on this site again.
This is coming after months of dealing with sometimes crippling anxiety, mostly over being online at all. I grew fearful and worried over every little thing, but I cannot continue like this. Coming back to this site is part of my Fear Ladder therapy, meaning I am slowly working my way back through my fears to regain a hold on my life. I cannot promise I will be a regular here, but I want to try. At least a bit.
In my last journal, I mentioned the thought of getting a new dA account. That is still a possibility, but for now, I will continue as your Headmistress.
Hopefully I find you all in good spirits and good faith. Anxiety has tried-and in some ways, succeeded-to keep me down, but I am working to beat this demon. I cannot let it win. That would indeed be the final nail in the proverbial coffin.
Snow and cold has been our constant companion here, not common for this time of year, but it looks like, just in time for Christmas, the weather will turn warm(er) and rain will visit, making all this light, fluffy, super Christmas-y snow go bye-bye. For shame. White Christmases are so nice, but it's so rare that we get one. Ah well. Such is life.
I love my minions! I hope this will be a fresh start, and that my worries will not get me down.
