I should write another #introductions post since I lost the original from last year
Hi I'm Kamiten, a leucistic Aberts squirrel. I'm about as boring as it gets; a cishet white guy. I've been involved in #furry for about 22 years now; my closest friends since high school have nearly all been LGBT.
I mean, I get it, nobody should be allowed to ignore it. It's a massive step backwards; another lurch towards religious fascism.
But right now my mental health is run ragged and that was before the overturn even happened. I was already an anxious, head-punching wreck this morning and having constant streams of horrific political news that I can do absolutely nothing about doesn't help.
A little worried about job prospects in NL for myself now. Talked to a recruiter at the most obvious place to work given my niche work for the last 15 years. Was told that they require fluent Dutch and i am... far from that. Doing my best to learn it while still living in a near only English speaking place. I may have to just try to slide into whatever i can find which I'm okay with but the pay cut will be even steeper than expected.
Appetite, medical maybe?
My bodies internal signaling seems to be all messed up. I don't know when I'm hungry or thirsty, then I'm suddenly feeling malnourished and dizzy. Right after i eat (without appetite) i start feeling hungry and bloated. I'm carrying water around with me just to remind myself to drink because i don't feel thirsty now, i just start feeling faint.
Friends. Mine are the small ones.
oops time to catch up on the last two days. Took dogs toa friend that we have seen in 3-4 years to meet his dog and talk shop. He's interested in finding a way to hire me remotely when i move to the Netherlands. Still feels a bit nebulous, but maybe we can make it work. Dogs had a great time and masse a new friend. Photos after this post.
Just NL immigration things
Decided to pay for an immigration lawyer even though our plan to immigrate to the Netherlands looks fairly straightforward. Glad i did, though it's extra costs the experience he brings from doing this all the time is invaluable. We are getting important steps lined up and done by someone in the Netherlands so when my wife moves there she can get the ball rolling near immediately. It's taken out a chunk of the stress from this.
Images of food
I love sharing food (and photos of food) I make and i forgot to post yesterday's photogenic meal.
Yesterday was homemade Indian, with grilled Tandoor Chicken, saag paneer and cumin rice.
The last photo is tonight's meal. Grilled pork chop and grilled zucchini, with a sage garlic and cheese spaetzel.
