I'm tired and sad and angry, and I'm sick of feeling tired and sad and angry, but I expect there'll be more of that in the future.

On February 1st there will be a walk* in solidarity with the local Muslim community in response to yesterday's terrorist attack at the mosque in Quebec City*. I want to go, but like most things in this town, it's happening when I'm at work. ...I think I'll ask my supervisor if I can leave early. It's worth a shot.

Dunno how I'll frame it to my parents, mind you (rearranging the hours would require explaining). Whatever. I'll figure something out. If I'm able to leave work early, that is.

...On the upside, this is the first event that my city has done related to the clusterfuck going on now, as far as I know. So that's something, at least.

[Edit] Work gave the OK, so I'm going. Probably. I have Friday off, so I'll just come in for a while to make up for the lost time. That sounds good.

After the previous entry's angst, I feel the need to scatter a couple of nicer things around....

New art by my mate Anneliese. Ahhh I love it when she posts new stuff - since she's so busy with school, she doesn't always have the time. That makes it even more special. ...I should hint at her to draw more snowy settings.

☆ Stumbled over this pretty Leo/Guang Hong fanart earlier today. Pair skating? Pair skating! Love it. <3

☆ New favourite song of the week is Love Sick by Mariachi el Bronx. I don't listen to much of this genre, so it's rather refreshing.

☆ And speaking of music, I remembered that CKUA Radio exists. They're a community-run station based out of Edmonton, and they play a wiiiide variety of stuff. Offbeat stuff, atypical genres, old jazz, independent Canadian music, lots of world music, obscure vintage songs only available on vinyl... it's great. I tend to forget about them a lot because they don't come in very well on my actual radio. But once again, the internet delivers. :')

☆ As always, little comforts: Chamomile tea, cinnamon buns, and some cozy calming ASMR. I find the gentle echoes and rain sounds in this one very soothing. <3
