The parents going to a session with Dee seems to have gone well– I'll know more when I see her again on Monday. Thanks to those of who had reassurances on that front, I really appreciate it.

I've been a bit under the weather with a mild cold, and the literal weather here has been awful and dreary, which is a bummer. Also it's getting dark early and I do not like it. HOWEVER, significant cheering up in that I had a phone interview for a job! I should know soon if they want me for an in-person one. Fingers crossed! JUST KIDDING. :[

In other news my focal seizures gave me auditory hallucinations the other night. That was, uh, worrying. I hope it doesn't become a regular thing, it's never happened before. No me gusta.

So, obviously that whole updating while I was in Europe thing didn't happen, life was fairly busy. That said, the course went well and I am now certified, and as a bonus my classmates were all awesome. I hope you have all been well while I've been gone.

I'm now on the mildly frantic hunt for a job, which so far is not going great and has been stressing me out far more than the class did. There's been a fair amount of unprompted crying fits and afternoons of total depressive shutdown– it's kiiiiind of a problem. I've managed to get three apps in, but so far no luck. European employers are particularly obnoxious, because they all want EU residents rather than mess with visa paperwork– this is not very helpful when the goal is to move to the EU permanently.

Tdoc Dee thinks I am handling all the pressure and life upheaval very well. I think that is sweet of her, but only true when you compare me to me, not when you compare me to people who can function like normal humans. (I may be a bit frustrated. Just a bit.)

I've had a nasty spate of migraines lately– needless to say, I am not happy about it. Mine are usually quite spaced out, but these have all been within a few days of each other and even more brutal than usual. They keep slamming into me right before bedtime, and I can't figure out what might be triggering them– none of my usual migraine triggers seem applicable. Sigh. I'm not on any migraine medication because the risks associated with it terrify me and I've gotten sort of used to them– I had my first migraine at age 5. However, I also usually don't have more than one every month or two to tough out (OTC painkillers pretty much do nothing), instead of one every two or three days. Gah.

In brighter news, however, I've been very carefully saving my money for some time now to pay for a certification course in teaching English as a foreign language. It's not on the order of paying for graduate studies, but it's not cheap either, and the limited hours I work mean I don't make very much right now. Today, though, I was checking my finances and it looks like I have enough for tuition. Exciting! I need to hold off a bit longer so I can pay for other incidental expenses, plane flights, ect, but it's really nice to actually have my goal within sight.

I've been full of writing fail lately because I've been caught in something of a slump, and hence haven't had much to talk about or the energy to talk about it. I'm doing okay, it's not one of the really bad lows, but I've been feeling very blah and unmotivated and drained in recent weeks. Somewhere in there I also got into a big fight with The Ex, but that's resolved now. (He and I have a tricky relationship because we were and remain friends, and it can be a thin line).

I really need to get a job, but I don't even feel like I have the energy reserves to deal with applying, never mind the actual working part. It's stressing me out, but I don't know what I want to do about it. Blegh.
