soc_puppet: Dreamsheep with a ball of white yarn for a body (Crochet)
[personal profile] soc_puppet
I got my meds adjusted just over a week ago, and I already feel loads better. Among the first things I'm noticing are: my enthusiasm at work is less forced, I'm less inclined to nap for the sake of napping during my free time, and I'm crocheting again!

To be fair, I'd been doing a bit of crochet work, but over the past few months it's really fallen down the wayside. Possibly longer. I was almost exclusively crocheting at my friend Steve's crafting get-togethers, and since those dropped off about a month ago, I'd been really struggling to do any crochet - or anything crafty at all! I managed to get this done for Valentine's Day:

Valentine's Day themed crocheted owl

Or, well, Owlentine's Day, as I put it on the Tumbles ;) Where there are also more pictures, BTW.*

(Sadly, I didn't manage to finish up its Feline-tines Day companion (for many Owl x Pussycat = OTP jokes), and it's currently still languishing.)

Anyway, since starting the increased dosage, I've finished two standard cats in as many days, and anticipate making more soon - probably not tomorrow, or Tuesday, since I've got lots of work both days (plus taxes on Tuesday), but definitely in the near future! I'm feeling a lot more optimistic about actually finishing projects, and just enjoying thinking about crocheting in general, and my stacks upon stacks of DVDs are beginning to see a bit of use as I stitch my way through them.

...I actually contemplated starting up a Patreon for [personal profile] hooked_on_anime a while back, but with my creative slump I just didn't feel up to it - not to mention the fact that I haven't really made any purely fannish patterns since Aviva and Shulamit, and they were the first in a long while themselves. (Ugh. Maybe my depressive spell was longer than I realized =_= I really need to look into some sort of mood-tracking app or something.) If I do decide to go for it, there's more setting up to do, but it's definitely something for me to think about.

Anyway, yes! Chemistry is better. (I am willfully not adding any caveats to that for better mental health.)


* First images uploaded to Dreamwidth, w00t! Though there doesn't seem to be any sort of direct link to a singular image plus description, so that might be something for the Suggestions Box. Or maybe I'm missing something in the linking, IDK.

Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

soc_puppet: [Homestuck] God tier "Rage" themed Dreamsheep (Sheep of Rage)

This is something really mundane to get this annoyed by, but whatever.

So almost two days ago I changed the time in my DS to reflect Spring Forward. Ever since then, Festival Plaza in Pokemon Sun and Moon has been non-functional. I thought at first that this was a problem that would fade after 24 hours had passed, but nope! It's been nearly 48 and I still can't play the lottery or get my fortune told - or do anything at any of the booths, actually. Everything, literally all choices, count as "sold" or "already done today". ...Except Festival Tickets for some reason? And I only moved the clock forward a single hour, it's not like I changed it to a different day. How irritating!

Bluh. I'm going to look around and see if there's some sort of fix-it I can find online. Otherwise I guess I'll have to open a support ticket or something, IDK.

Edit: Oh look, it fixes itself after 48 hours. I clearly should've waited another couple of hours instead of changing the time back in desperation and hoping that would work. Oops X(

On the plus side, I know not to do this again, especially since having my clock be an hour fast bothers me far less than it being an hour slow.
