shirts

fiver: thoughtful kitten! (thinking)
Life goes on, and I continue to ignore this corner of the internet for the most part, but today I'll do something unusual and make a post. It's about t-shirts. Specifically, I decided to tally up all the shirts I've gotten from Threadless over the past six years or so, look at the designs, and ponder what they say about my taste. Other than the fact that I need to be separated from Threadless for my own good.

It turns out I've bought twenty-nine shirts over the years, or approximately five per year (of course, 2014 isn't over yet...). What's surprising (or not surprising, depending on your point of view, is how neatly they fall into certain categories.

List under the cut, in no particular order. )

The top category, with five shirts (or six if you count #21), is cats: #4, #5, #6, #7, #8 (and maybe #21).
Then there's tentacles, with five shirts: #10, #11, #13, #16, #29.
Also skulls, with four shirts: #9, #15, #17, #23.
And dragons, with three shirts: #19, #20, #27.
Finally, cityscapes, with two shirts: #12 and #24.

The takeaway from this is that I'm predictable, and I really need that plush kitten with tentacles.

Here are some things that have been going on with me, in no particular order of importance.

☀ I've been recovering from a really ugly episode of depression; hopefully, in the process, I've been gaining some tools and self-awareness to prevent things like it in the future.
☀ After six years of muttering about how much I liked this one character and pairing in it but could never get through the damn visual novel, I flung myself at Fate/stay night and became completely consumed by it. Also, I was wrong to think I would be utterly enamored of Archer and Rin/Archer. I'm actually completely and soul-crushingly obsessed with them. I've been thinking for six years that I'd love them and I wasn't prepared.
☀ This means that I'm back in fandom actively again, for the Fate franchise and for Puella Magi Madoka Magica. But I've also been gathering up some tools for not letting the toxic parts of fandom get to me. Which means not letting myself be shamed or guilted into fights over the social justice problems in my favorite series, even if that would be the right thing to do, because I can't handle it.
☀ I have a really good therapist.
☀ I have a lot of extensive fanfiction ideas.
☀ I also have some quite nice original fiction ideas, but they're on the backburner at the moment.
☀ I'm signed up for a program that will help me go to school at the local community college--hopefully starting in January. Said college has a couple of two-year video game design and development tracks. I want to try one of those. I know that it's a tough field to make a career in, but I think I have more chance of actually getting through such a program than I would if I tried to force myself through one I'm not interested in because "the degree is for something practical."
☀ I switched from drinking coffee to drinking tea. When you use loose leaves and have a proper infuser, tea is great.
