Signing in, basking in the afterglow of my birthday celebration.

I spent the day before listening to and loving the new Ghostemane album titled Anti-Icon. The album consists of 36 minutes of rage, sadness, being fed up with reality, and very dark content. As somebody who anticipated the release for months prior, I felt the album justified my seemingly endless wait. All of the subsequent listens filled the rest of the details in. I've already got my favorite lyrics from the songs. I've been listening to it since it came out and it has done my spirit a world of good. 💀💜

The Legend of the Wizad Laird Lenormand
by Neil Lovell of Malpertuis arrived today. I knew what the package contained immediately when I saw the Malpertuis logotype on the label. I hugged the package to my chest after I pulled it out of the receptacle. Mine at last, a Lenormand deck I thought I would never ever have the pleasure to handle. I acquired the deck in both the full and poker sizes. The full size is the same as the Old Arabian Lenormand. The poker size is the same size as the Malpertuis Lenormand. There is no loss of detail despite the different format. Upon closer look, the poker size was reformatted to also fit the entire image in the frame. And they both look stunning. What a sight! I think this deck conveys a somber mood beautifully. It feels stormy and autumnal. A great deck for when moods shadow your insides. 💬💭🐳🐋🌑🌑

033 autumnal nostalgia

Monday, October 5, 2020

October is already here. I was born in October and I hold this season's festivities very close to my heart. Lately I have been contemplating the lessons I learned since I entered my 30s. I have learned the value of self-reliance, self-awareness and independence. I struggled the most with learning to be self-sufficient during an unprecedented time. Despite all that I made it through. I am practicing stressing less over the circumstances that are outside my control, and that keeps me purposeful. If I left my thoughts to go idle, who knows what kind of trouble I'd have to sort out on my own. Still, I did my best. 💀👻

My subscription to FFXIV still needs to be renewed, and I haven't really had the time to play the game in the past couple of weeks. But here are some screen shots from the last night I got the chance to play it. I finally unlocked the Black Mage class, but I've yet to earn my class clothes. The identifying uniform with the steepled hat is yet to be mine, but will be soon... 🎩
