Ah, I'm casting my brother's ex in an overly negative light. She and my brother were best friends, and she got him to travel to different countries and experience things he would never have seen otherwise. She taught him how to cook, got him interested in the ocean and diving, and she spoke something like six languages, so she'd translate and teach him words when they travelled. She was such a fun person to be around, and I do miss my friendship with her too. My brother told me he doesn't regret the time in spent with her, because he gained some amazing experiences. I think they just weren't the right partner for each other. She was my brother's first love, so I think he had a hard time seeing that their relationship had changed.
If I had a working scanner I think I'd try doing art for gaia, or if I had a tablet. I want to get back into doing art for myself though, I just haven't felt motivated for so long. But I did a bunch of crafts for Christmas, so it's a start. And yeah, I definitely need to start exercising anyway. I've lost some weight, but I need muscles, ha.
