That's how I feel a lot of the time too. Especially early in the morning. (Er, my morning. Since my morning can be at literally any point in the day, lol.) Though I can usually find the energy to yell at stupid people saying stupid shit on my main forum. Which has happened constantly this last month to the point I've made a couple hundred posts in the last month alone. (And with how easy it is to get banned on that site I'm honestly a bit surprised I haven't gotten a ban for flaming or otherwise personal attacks. I'm pretty careful when criticizing someone to try to refrain from getting too personal but I tend to easily get frustrated by people digging their heels in when they're clearly wrong which results in me getting more inflammatory. I've managed to go almost three years now without a ban which is quite long for someone with as many posts as I have there.)
I'm enjoying being called male, even if my body doesn't match yet. (At the same time I don't for that reason.) I've been lazy about trying to find names to try out for myself irl, so I've been sticking with my birth name + female pronouns. I need to get off my ass and actually do that.
Other than the rare piece of male I get under the name Alice I only ever get referred to by my birth name and male pronouns irl myself. I just can't ever be bothered to try and correct people because all too often they take it personally and it just becomes a huge hassle. Which is part of the reason only one of my irl friends knows I'm transgender currently too. I just can't be bothered telling the others, not that I particularly go out of my way to hide it though. I always play female characters with the name Alice or some variation of that (Alice, Alice Cheshire, Alice Mikucup, or for Terraria I also use M.Alice) and my username on Steam has been Alice ⦂☽ for the past several years and so on. On top of that my closest irl friends have accounts here because we were using one of my hidden subforums to coordinate a D&D campaign, though plans eventually fell through for that. So they could easily read all the stuff I've posted about being transgender.
Even if there's still a small chance, I still hope you're gonna be okay.
I live in Saskatchewan, two provinces over from British Columbia, and a couple days a while ago it was smokey outside.
Can't we just take the water from Texas and put it on the fires? Problem solved!
I think things are more or less under control now. From what the news has been saying, the firefighters seem to at least have contained the leading edge of the fire so it's no longer advancing towards the metro area. Of course this still leaves the forested edges to the east and south open but there's far fewer people to endanger in those directions.
The smoke really does suck though. Other than constant coughing fits the air is constantly very hazy, in the worst areas resembling those photos of highly polluted areas in China except grey instead of brown, and there's ash everywhere. The smoke is so thick that yesterday I went with my stepdad to his brother's house to help finish setting up a security system and I could look straight at the sun with no real issues. Despite having really sensitive eyes I barely even had to squint due to how dim it was.
