(The previous post was from yesterday. I've been sloppy on Journal updates lately, sorry :P)
I think I'm feeling a bit better after getting that last post out there. I'm still having troubles with stress but there on a much more manageable level now. :) I'm spending the day in my office, putting a good dent in my Princess Starla costume and tidying up.
The BJJ lessons continue. I still can't do this for too long and after yesterdays lesson I was barely able to move and seeing spots. Usha said this was normal though XD And my body seems to like the exercise.
Things have been better. I got a new entertainment system in my sewing room, which helps a LOT. And between my hobbies and daily duties things are going well. David and Usha have been teaching me BJJ to help with keeping me with exercises. And Dante's been extra sweet to me, in that special way that he does when he knows I'm stressed or upset. (This involves him petting me. No, he doesn't realize he has nails on those huge paws of his).

I've been trying to upgrade all of my accounts lately, especially since I've gotten better health wise recently (though I'm still very sick, at least I can do much more now.) This is proving to be pretty difficult for me :/ I'm not the best with computers.

Now, as I'm working super hard to bring myself back to the way I want to live I find it super comforting to see all the things I've managed to accomplish in the past. Things I never thought I could do so w
Ok, so I made a page for my cosplay stuff, since I'm trying to keep my facebook page itself pretty private, and have a lot of my family on there. <3
And please, let me know if any of you out there have similar pages. <3 Love you all :D
And I'm sooo tired! We fly back tomorrow on a red eye back to Boston, and should be arriving around 10:00am in the morning, fun.
I missed seeing a lot of friends this year, which makes me sad cuz I don't know if I'll be able to afford to fly out to any other conventions this year. But on the bright side, I got to debut 3 new costumes (one of which needs major work though), and I made a lot of new friends.
My disease was difficult to deal with at times, but despite it, I was able to actually get out there and cosplay. :D Got some great stuff to bring home too. And plans to cosplay more characters in the future.
I hope everyone else had a go
