So here's the update about how I've been doing! I still need to learn that my body is a lot weaker than I'm used to, and everytime I'm caught in a cold draft I end up with a stiff neck for a week, coughing and the like. So there's that. But at least I don't panic anymore, and that counts as a win. I've been to therapy twice, tried to arrange for the plumber to come over, I finally got the receipt for my taxes back from the accountant, and arranged a meeting with my lawyer.

Other than that boring - but awesome because it makes me feel like a normal competent adult again - stuff, I've been doing lots of wonderful things that make me feel like a normal adult with hobbies. In no particular order, I've been taking lots of cute pictures of my cat:

Baking cookies for the first time in almost two years:

And they came out delicious, if I do say so myself. I've been playing World of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy XV and enjoying them both a lot, even though I'll have to wait to continue playing FFXV until January because I don't have a PS4 back in Piedmont. The new Rivers of London book finally came out, and it was brilliant. They finally went back to London and the main plot was back again, although I wish they'd spent more time in the Folly. It felt like we were barely there. It was still great to see Nightingale again, though.

I've been binge-watching Supergirl, and it's adorable although the plot is kinda weak, especially considering how it's the strongest aspect of The Flash. I love how the cast is mostly female, and how they are not even in the vicinity of fucking around when talking about sexism. Plus the way the coming out story was handled was perfect and had me in tears at how great it was, and if only they eased up on the love triangles for Kara and gave us a stronger main plot it would be absolutely perfect. I feel a bit envious of today's little girls who have shows like this one, to be honest.

I'm also re-watching season 2 of The Flash because I love it, and I get to watch the blurays on my awesome tv instead of mkv files on my laptop. HD quality, oh yeah. *_____* Today the super crossover finally started (I don't think the Supergirl episode really counts), and it was everything I wanted and more. I watched it twice in a row squealing and cheering. It feels so good to be so invested in a tv show again! \o/

In this terrible cold, you'd better stay inside as much as possible and enjoy Sakura's cuddles! ^^

What cookies did you bake? I'm decent at baking cakes, but cookies never come out good. It might be my oven, but maybe I'll need to change the recipe.

Christmas cookies, basically butter, flour, one egg, and orange essence. I can give you the recipe, they're easy to make and taste amazing! I usually make around 90 at a time, so I have enough to give to my friends, my therapist, and my aunt. ^^

Adoro Supergirl! Lei è carinissima, e le storie sono semplici e leggere, e sì, amo il fatto che sia davvero un tf al femminile.
In questo periodo stressantissimo è esattamente quello che mi ci vuole per rilassarmi alla sera :)
Le storie e il plot non saranno eccitantissime, e forse mi piace proprio per quello (io sono verso la fine della prima stagione, poi attacco con la seconda).


Buoni quei biscottini, se mi passi la ricetta li faccio a natale ♥

Sinceramente io mi guarderei tutta una stagione solo di Kara e Cat Grant che parlano, le adoro. *____*

Ecco la ricetta: 240g burro a temperatura ambiente (io lo schiaffo nel microonde per dieci secondi prima di iniziare), 240g zucchero a velo (again, 10 secondi nel frullatore), 1 uovo, 1 cucno di sale (che abbreviato!), 1 boccetta di aroma di vaniglia, 1 boccetta di aroma di arancia/mandorle/rum come preferisci, 600g farina.

Mescola burro e zucchero fino a ottenere un composto cremoso. Incorpora uovo, aromi, poi sale e farina. La farina sembra tanta, ma piano piano si incorpora bene tutta, perchè non deve risultare appiccicosa. Dividi la pasta in due pezzi, ricoprili con la pellicola da cucina, e metti in frigo per 30 minuti.

Preriscalda il forno a 180°. Stendi la pasta alta circa 8mm e ritaglia i biscotti, e falli cuocere per 10 minuti massimo (devono essere solidi ma non troppo scuri). Falli raffreddare e mettili in contenitori di latta con un pezzetto di pane (da cambiare ogni giorno), e resteranno freschi e soffici per settimane!
