xaq_the_aereon: I caught it...now what? (Aereon Xaq)

Went to my first furry convention, where I met [livejournal.com profile] kjorteo and [livejournal.com profile] davidn for the first time, the former easily being the high point of the year, as my friendship with Teo's the longest-lasting one I've ever had, going back to before some people I know were even born. Regardless of everything else that happened this year, I wouldn't trade that weekend for anything.

Team Hatoful came back together, with a new member in the form of our friend Elijah, and started our playthrough of the indie hit Undertale. The role of Sans fell to me, giving me every excuse under the sun to make some of the worst jokes I have ever made in my whole life.

You have no idea how much I have loved this. :]

Had a substantial health scare a few months back when I found out I may be diabetic. As you know, I've since gotten that under control, but at a follow-up appointment I had yesterday, the doc decided I was either Type 1 or Type 2 due to my A1C (a measure of a 3-month average of glucose levels) was too high, and so I was put on a daily half-pill Metformin prescription to try and get my blood sugar down...the first dose I took today promptly put my blood sugar at levels too low to be considered safe, leaving me feeling wiped all day and with a fairly unpleasant case of diarrhea, so fuck that. I've got another blood lab in March, this should show that the initial diagnosis was wrong and that I've got myself under control.

One good thing from yesterday's appointment; I found out I'm down to 220 pounds, a side effect from my efforts to lower my glucose and cholesterol levels.

Sczerenade, my desktop, died on me as a result of damage inflicted by my own short temper back in July, a painful reminder that the anger issues I've dealt with my whole life, while on the mend, are still there. Her replacement, Astralite, went kaput as well shortly after updating to Windows 10 a few weeks ago. Not sure what caused her HD to die, but everything that wasn't transferred from Sczer is now gone, mostly including commissioned artwork and Patreon gifts. Between that and Lady Luck giving me the finger in Vegas while on vacation with my family and I can safely say that both my birthday and Christmas kinda sucked this year.

So yeah, got my health under control, got to make some hilariously bad jokes while playing a great game with friends, and got to spend time I will never forget with some of the closest friends I've ever had in my life...a lot of other things about 2015 sucked, but just for those things alone, I think I can accept how this year turned out.

So long, 2015.
