Day out

I actually did end up spending much of today with Tabitha when she was between appointments. It was a nice time. I feel like we got some real quality time together, and during the day, no less! The weather's been really nice lately, so we even went for a little stroll after lunch. It was just a nice, pleasant time together. I love her very much. That feels weird to say in public, and I don't know why. But there it is. I don't talk a lot about my relationships, I guess. It feels like a very private thing. And it is, I suppose. But it can't be news to anybody that I love her. My partner. I wouldn't be weird if I didn't, right? It's just...never been something I talk about, I guess. I doubt that will change much, honestly, but I've been kind of emotional and sentimental today, so...I'll take the step, I guess. I love my partner.

I guess I had some time in the morning and evening when I wasn't hanging out, but I don't think I got much done of note. Today was International Women's Day, so social media was hopping. There were a lot of shout-outs (in my circle, anyway) to women who design RPGs, and I had another, like, flash of sentimentality. I know so many cool people! It's pretty astounding, when I stopped to think about it for a second. I dunno. The world is so full of great people. It's a good thing to remember when I'm feeling instead like the world is full of malicious nincompoops. It's sort of an adaptation of something that comes up in therapy a lot. When I'm feeling good, my therapist recommends that I try to remember those times -- remember those feelings. The memories are supposed to come in handy when I'm depressed or anxious. It's good to remember that it won't always be like that, that one day I won't feel bad, and I'll feel good again. Same idea, I guess; there aren't only bad people; there are good people, too.

Anyway. So, yeah, not a lot to report as far as accomplishments. Again. Tomorrow I'm earmarking for chores, though, no question. I'm nearing critical levels of laundry need. ;) And the to-do list just keeps on growing, so I really gotta start knocking items off of that. :) Tomorrow will be a good day for that. I'll try and keep the social media under control. Until then.

You have loved your partner for approximately one billion years of relative time. But I kind of get what you mean, right? Like it feels like twenty years ago this shit was a lot more out in the open (and holy god did I just type that and was that accurate? Fuuuuuuuuck) but that it's kind of weird now to be like "Hey, I love the person I'm with and let me tell you about it!" Like social media would make it more needlessly performative, it's harder to see people in person for those solo talks that wind up with big emotional datadumps, and LJ alone stands tall, but also there's less people left there? I myself only check in on it sometimes, there's only a few friends left really who use it.
