Hi, I'm V. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works!

If you need anything, or if you just want to talk, feel free to comment / note me. :note:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

Firstly, most importantly, and slightly belatedly: it's here! NaPoWriMo is happening! I've missed it so much. Are any of you participating? I'm doing found poetry this year, with the Found Poetry Review's Poetry Month Scouts project (you can see my poems here as they appear). I can't wait. (The journal title is, of course, from Anne Carson's gorgeous poem, The Glass Essay.)

This last week has been an incredibly busy week; I've never been so social before, it's very exciting (and a little exhausting).

To start off, I had a job interview - my first job interview! - last Wednesday, for tutoring English to underprivileged kids via a tutoring agency that pays really well and sounds amazing and professional? They called me back recently, and it's a bit strange, but I'm in and not in at the same time? It turns out the only eligible space they have would involve me being the only tutor to about six children, which both they and I are kind of unsure about - usually, they have two tutors to a group. However, they really liked me (actually, they said "we were really impressed with your interview and would like to offer you a position"!) and so I'm going to training on April 14th, and they’re going to call me whenever something comes up! Plus, there’s a summer school happening in August for which they might call me up, too. So, yay? I don't know. I'm counting it as a success!

Moving on, Epilepsy Awareness Day was on Thursday, not that I posted anything about it anywhere, because I had an exam on Friday (which went okay) and also because I forgot, but I still thought I'd make a note of it here. Happy very belated Purple Day. I've had another convulsive seizure, even though I've been on medication since December, but I'll spare you the violent details, seeing as I'm alright now.  Thankfully, I'd scheduled another appointment with my neurologist yesterday, and we're upping my meds in order for it to stop. I would really like for it to stop. It's not (just) because of the physical injuries, it's also the memory loss, which is... incredibly unnerving.

Enough of that - I did get a cool chart out of my latest EEG scan, check it out, this is my brain on epilepsy (the spikes are the "epileptiform activity"):

The weekend was fantastic. All the happy. On Saturday, I hung out with friends and then played Gone Home and watched Slither (2006) with another friend. Gone Home is amazing, you guys. I'm not much of a gamer, mostly because I'm bad at games, and while I'm not a sore loser, I'm not really fond of losing again and again and again, y'know? Gone Home is great, though - it's set in 1995 (cassette tapes!), has amazing character-based stories (all I'll say is: punk lesbians), and is such a world-building oriented game, it's gorgeous. Play it!

Slither, on the other hand, was... it was a good comedy horror film, I guess, but it was also just - it was gross, and gory, and gross. Agh. Speaking of film, though, I did recently power through Revolutionary Girl Utena, an anime show from 1997 - it can all be found on Youtube, and it is amazing, if you're into gorgeous visuals; descriptions, aversions, inversions, and subversions of all the tropes; queer ladies; and more. It made me cry, it was so well done.

On Sunday, I celebrated Holi for the first time in eleven years. (I had school in March in Shanghai, and - well - our festivals never worked out in Shanghai.) It was amazing. Actually, Holi is in early March - but the event was hosted by a restaurant and they usually do it in late March. There was free food, proper mithai, and lots of colours, and music, of course (the usual Hindi songs, but the DJ slipped in songs like Bad Girls and Uptown Funk in there!), and there may also have been a girl and it may also have been a date. I'd show you pictures of my face, but, honestly, I look like a colourful chimney sweep, so here's a very indie, very colourful photo of our feet instead:

It was brilliant. Anyway, that's pretty much it from me! How are you, what are you up to? :heart:

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart

The winter winds blow and we shall have snow
And what will the robin do then, poor thing.
He'll sit in the barn to keep himself warm
And tuck his head under his wing, poor thing.

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)
