WIP – 6/10
Obi-Wan knew that if he didn’t leave now, Padmé would die.
And so he made his decision.
The Ghost flew low over the clouds on Lothal, lit only by the moons. The spike, prepared by Chopper and Sabine, was tucked into Leia’s jacket. She touched it once as the ship swooped towards the complex.
“Almost in the drop zone,” said Hera’s voice over their comlinks. “Team one, be ready.”
Leia moved forward with Obi-Wan, Kanan, and Luke. The door of the ship opened beneath them, and cold wind hit her hard in the face. Tucking her head, she moved down the ramp with the rest of the team.
Obi-Wan spoke, his voice transmitting to the others. “Three… two… one.”
They jumped silently into the night.

1. What are you anal about?
Lights being on or off, messes in workspaces (they can be right next to where i'm working, but not right in front of me -- my desk is a disaster, but the area directly in front of me has maybe a snack bowl or glass of water, nothing else), doors/windows being open or shut, shoelaces being tied. Probably more.

2. Why that and not something else?
Honestly, at this point it's just "what hasn't faded due to being impossible to deal with". I had a lot of really strongly OCD tendencies when I was younger, and these are just the ones that stuck. I used to have to count every single footstep I took, making sure the same parts of my feet touched the floor with the same amount of pressure, all the time. So like, thank god I don't do that anymore.
3. Are you more or less anal than you were as a young person?
Well, I'm still pretty young, but when I was a preteen it was a LOT worse -- see above, lol. I really thought I had OCD for a long time, so I think that says a lot.
4. When you are suddenly confronted by a situation over which you have no control, what do you do first?
Anger-cry, or just shut down if I can't.
5. Do you wish you could be more or less attentive these days?
Well, idk. I wish I didn't care so much, but I would still like workspaces to be clear. I wish I didn't care about the others, I guess, because often it makes doing anything productive impossible because all I can think about is how a light is on that shouldn't be or a door is open.

(Content Note: Please, please feel free to skip if another sad person who's well off in some ways being sad-but-determined isn't what you need to be reading right now. I recommend finding some fuzzy bunnies.)

To those who’ve survived: Breathe. That’s it. Once more. Good. You’re good. Even if you’re not, you’re alive. That is a victory.

(The epigraph to The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin, who is the 2016 Hugo Award winner for The Fifth Season, sequel is The Obelisk Gate; The Stone Sky is the third book, a book I just got today and immediately started reading.)

Grapes and figs and apples and berries fruiting in my neighborhood.

Feeling well enough physically to go do things outside. Feeling better mentally after going outside.

A long walk and a quick bus ride.

Photographs of bunnies courtesy of

A cool breeze. The weather generally relenting a bit.

Views of Mt. Hood from the slopes of Mt. Tabor.

An enormous fallen tree covered in moss and the saplings growing out of it.

Getting my brain to be a notch or two quieter by writing and walking.

Sitting in the sunshine surrounded by tall grass and listening to birds and squirrels.

Taking photographs of assorted trees and flowers.

My stuffed animal friend Bunbun that I have had since I was born. (Technically before. Bunbun was given to my mom at a baby shower while she was pregnant with me.)

A shower.

I'm going, with S, to a candlelight vigil -- at City Hall in Portland, OR tonight -- for the victims of the neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville. We'll be later than the official start and only mean to stay an hour or so. It's important to me to go. I WILL post some time tonight or tomorrow unless an emergency comes up.

Love you folks. Stay safe out there.

ETA: Home safe. Spent about an hour and a half listening and holding up signs. Worthwhile.
