    @Pokemon Trainer Sarah He's a little small at the moment to wander around too much but because my lounge is very open and there's a lot of space I let him explore in there as long as he doesn't go under the sofas haha. He's so small that he could easily wiggle into small holes so I have to keep a careful eye on him. When he's bigger I will let him wander though. He isn't a fast snake so he would probably just slowly find somewhere to chill. @Suicune's Fire Thank you! I'm hoping it'll be worth it, haha. I'm super excited though. I think that once I get used to it, it shouldn't be too bad, I should just get used to not doing much free stuff during the week lol. Bo's too adorable for words haha. He's starting to go through a shed at the moment so he's being quite shy and reserved so I'm leaving him to it for now. I used to have a snake years ago and because of the lizards, I feel better with the mice haha. At least they can't escape and they are a bit more pleasant. When I first started feeding my old snake mice it was a bit odd and it felt a bit weird having them in the freezer along with food but you forget about it after a while. He's also a really annoying snake to feed. He's not like one of those lazy snakes that will eat the food when you put it right in front of him, I have to dangle it with some tweezers and make it look like it is alive and walking round the cage and he will stalk it until he attacks it and eats it. Sometimes it will take 5 minutes of me moving it just for him to get interested. He's also a slow eater too. He particularly likes to spin his body around when he eats for some reason.

    Coru that's so awesome!! I'm so happy for you! :D And yeah, those work hours and travel time sound a little tough, but if it's doing what you love, hopefully it'll be all worth it! :D I hope all goes well with it!

    Omg Bo. <3 He's so adorable! xD Also, how do you feel about feeding him mice and such? Is it difficult, or do you get used to it quickly?

    Aww Bo sounds like so much fun! Do you let him wander around the house or is it too dangerous for him? Can he move very fast?

    I'd be really interested to see your layout designs and stuff!

    @Neo Emolga Thank you!!! This week was also New Designers, an exibition in London but our uni only chooses the top 10 of the class to go and I didn't make it, so to hear that makes me feel so much better about myself. I messaged my lecturer and she said she was so happy that she told everyone at the exhibition. I doubt they appreciated that as none of them got job offers :/. haha @Cleobel Thank you!!! I know he is, I just wished he stayed this small and cute forever haha. @Pokemon Trainer Sarah Thank you!!! I went in for a few hours yesterday so they could see how I worked and the atmosphere and stuff was so nice, I could see myself being really happy working there so I'm so happy they wanted me too. I haven't done much art, it's more layout design and other stuff like that but if you guys want to see it i'll post it on my thread for you guys to see. I personally think some of it's quite interesting. I can't really tell but Bo does seem to love it. When I get him out he does coil around my hand for a while which is a sign of nervousness but after a while he calms down and loves to explore, he's such a curious snake haha.

    Also Bo is pretty cool! Does he like to be handled?

    @Suicune's Fire @Pokemon Trainer Sarah Thank you for your comments!
    When I went to the US a few years ago, it was difficult for me to adjust to the local time, although I forced myself to go to bed at an appropriate time during the first night (and the following nights). I even missed out on a fun activity because I was too exhausted due to the jet lag, even though that activity happened several days after I arrived.
    However, adjusting to Brussels time again after I got back home was even more difficult : I couldn't sleep until about 4 AM and I woke up around 11 AM / noon (I never wake up that late when I'm not dealing with jet lag). In order to go to Melbourne, I will travel to the east again... and I definitely don't want to wake up so late again.
    Regarding the sun, my schedule is not the same as the sun's schedule anyway, even when I'm not trying to prepare for jet lag. In addition, there are good window shutters in my bedroom and I plan to use a sleep mask.
    That's why I would like to shift my sleep schedule before going to Melbourne, especially as I have sleep issues. I'm terrible at falling asleep. I'm glad your way to adjust to another timezone works for you, though.
    Thank you for wishing me good luck!

    This does sound tough! Are you usually good at falling asleep? I find it hard to sleep when it's light, so I agree with Xanthe that it's easier to shift once you arrive because your body naturally reacts to the sun. This sounds like an interesting experiment though, good luck!
  12. Suicune's Fire's Avatar
    Ooh, that sounds really difficult! And hey, it's a lot easier to adjust when you're already at your destination (at least, that's what I find) because of when the sun rises and falls, so if you're finding that going to sleep early afternoon doesn't work, don't worry too much about it. What I've done is basically deprive myself of sleep on the first day I arrive, then sleep when a normal time to sleep would be, and my body gives in because it's exhausted. XD But, I hope your way works! Good luck!

    @Pokemon Trainer Sarah @Suicune's Fire Thank you for your comments! Yes, it was very hot in France... At least, I got to enjoy the summer before going to Melbourne. xD I can't wait to meet you there!
  14. Suicune's Fire's Avatar
    That sounds like a wonderful few days! :D And yeah, I heard it was really hot in France too! 45 degrees! It rarely gets that hot here in summer. Good to have a bunker day when the sun is threatening to melt you outside. xD

    Hahaha, "Azelf-ie." Good one. xD I'm glad you had such a nice time with your friend!

    Sounds like you had a great time with your friend! :) I heard it's been very hot in France, lucky you had airconditioning in your Airbnb!

    @Scytherwolf Thank you for your comment! That book was one of my Christmas presents last year. xD It's a great book!

    That's so cool you had a great trip and got to meet a friend!

    And I LOVE that you read the "All cats have Asperger syndrome" book. That's a classic in my family. XD

    Great to see you back in action, though! You gotta love those bursts of inspiration and drive. :3
    Yeah I'm still not sure what it was that was causing it. I'm sure a lot of things around here that were happening weren't helping either.

    Oh yeah I'm glad to have my drive back! Not to mention that reminds me. I've got an idea for Stalkers to drop by you later that you might like. Yes....another ;p heheheh.

    Thanks Scytherwolf! :) yeah I'm glad whatever it was dragging me down is gone now too. Hopefully I can keep it ongoing for now! :D

    I always try to keep everyone here updates. Sometimes I wait and sometimes I wait too long. Hopefully I never wait too long. Difficult and all yeah it was pretty rough. I wish I knew what it was causing it, but sadly I could never figure it out. At least it's all in the past now. Hopefully I can keep up the good mood for as long as possible! :D

    It's awesome to hear that you perked back up again. :) It sounds like a chemical thing, but who knows, haha. Keep finding things that drive you and make you smile. It makes all the difference.
    Well tough part is, is that I didn't make it too apparent. I didn't even talk about it. I tried to keep everything to myself while staying active as I felt here so I didn't just disappear. I'd rather not do that unless it's something super important that needs immediate attention. But yeah it kept my full attention away from everything and it sucked BIG time. I wanted so badly to help with the Discord thing, but it dragged me down so much I couldn't mindfully do anything in a good and well state. I try doing new things, but it didn't help much

    Yeah thanks, Xanthe. I really appreciate all you guys checking in on me after I post this up. I'm glad to be in a right mind state again! Let's hope it won't happen again for a long long, loooooooong time. Heck I tried to most days, but most music or things I liked didn't even help. Which is very odd. So let's hope I can keep the good times going strong!
