Whoof, more than six months since you were last here, and more than a year since you were supposed to have stopped being here ( :P ). Where does the time go?

Nice to see you back, how's it going?

Moves since then:
Charlotte NC -->Queens NY--->New Orleans, LA --->Boise ID ---> Sicily, IT

Welp, I randomly decided to check on this forum just in time for its End of Days. But here's a final re-introduction and some changes that have happened in the last couple years

I'm 28 years old

I live in Chicago now, and am working in live theatre again (as of this April) after a couple years spent first in a shitty retail job and then in a shitty hospital data entry job. So the moves since I last posted have been

Sarasota, FL -> Winston-Salem, NC (to live with family because lol pandemic) -> Madison, WI -> Chicago, IL

At previously mentioned shitty retail job I got Covid (November 2020, pre-vaccinations or really pre-effective treatments at all) had a very bad time and haven't felt quite right since.

The shitty data entry job gave me health insurance, which is when I had my first doctor's appointment in over a decade and found out I was type 2 diabetic - very common in my family but for some reason I thought I was too young for it. In response to this I took up hiking as a hobby, started actually exercising, and lost 50 pounds. I was able to get my A1C back into a healthy range without medication, which I am really proud of.
