Pinned toot

I feel like my old intro from August is stale, so I'm hopping on the bandwagon.

Hi friends! I'm Ari, Arini, Arinelle, or Sue. Whichever is your preference is fine with me. I nerd out about writing, history, gaming, sci-fi, and most of all, baseball.

I'm a historian and writer by trade, but chronic health problems have sidelined me for a while. I'm sometimes depressed, frequently anxious, but always trying to do my best.

I don't think I'm very exciting, but I hope you're nice.

Okay, maybe not to the degree it is elsewhere. There was a tornado warning, with a confirmed tornado, in the Raleigh area.

It seems to be storming everywhere but here today.

And for some reason, I wish it would storm here. Maybe tomorrow.

Had a great meeting with the monastic order I'm discerning with. Later, going to a baseball game, despite the insane amounts of pollen in the air. Pretty excited.

It's snowing here. The first measurable snowfall in April since 1982. Crazy.

I wish I had someone to watch baseball with. A few people from my PSO team hung out with me on voice a few days ago while we watched silly YT videos, but none are around today.

Listening to a baseball game, even just spring training baseball, is therapy for me. Even when we're down 5-0 in the 2nd inning.
