Massive catch-up post part one!

Step into the time machine!Collapse )

So there's crapton of stuff that's happened since my last post of significance (December '10). And, actually, before, too. That is, stuff happened that never got posted about. So I'm going to start with last October! XD

And I have more to say, more to tell, but it's getting late, and this criminal thing finally ends tomorrow (technically today since it's after midnight here).

In around ten hours, Asshole gets sentenced. I'm reading something I wrote called a Victim Impact Statement. For the unaware, it's something written by the victim of a crime, ideally to be considered by the sentencing judge in the event of a conviction. I don't have to read it, but the particular judge gives more weight to a statement when the victim presents it at the sentencing hearing.

I'm a little bit anxious, for sure, because it IS intensely personal and there ARE going to be people there that will hear it, too. And it's just intimidating overall.

But I need to do this, and I want to do this.

I'll hopefully remember to make another post tomorrow to let y'all know how it goes. REMIND ME! XD
