Meme, and heck, update while I'm at it

I Am A: Neutral Good Elf Ranger Bard

Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered 'normal'.

Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Secondary Class:
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.

Mielikki is the Neutral Good goddess of the forest and autumn. She is also known as the Lady of the Forest, and is the Patron of Rangers. Her followers are devoted to nature, and believe in the positive and outreaching elements of it. They use light armor, and a variety of weapons suitable for hunting, which they are quite skilled at. Mielikki's symbol is a unicorn head.

Interesting. I think I can live with pretty much all of that. In fact, I think that's pretty much about as good as I can think of - with the exception that depending on my mood, I go between "Good" and "neutral" on that particular axis. I suppose "good" would probably nail it though, with distinct neutral tendencies.

Anyhow, as to a short update, sorry I haven't been posting much at all lately. For one thing, I've been pretty busy with current project-type stuff. Yay! Although today I haven't been as productive - I think partly because I burned my brain out last night. ^^;; And partly because I'm reacting to stress in general.

Stress, you wonder? Because of the project? Well, possibly slightly, but really mostly because of my mother. I've mentioned before that I live "at home," in large part due to her health. Well, just over a week ago she came down with a cold, and it soon just blossomed into a nasty bronchitis or something similar - about all she's doing is sitting and hacking and coughing. And while I don't want to be completely unsympathetic.. it just completely wears on your nerves. Especially when she won't go to the bloody hospital to get treated as she should, because she doesn't want to end up admitted.

Luckily, her (crappy) doctor finally called in some antibiotics for her to start taking about two or three days ago, so I'm *hoping* that they're slowly starting to take effect, and I'm relieved that he went and called them in sight-unseen. Even though in other ways frankly it scares me a bit. Yeesh. Now if only she could have got some sort of treatment early on in the cold, instead of so belatedly, because it's damn well *impossible* to get any useful feedback from her doctor at most times. (IE: you call the office, leave a message that you're ill and need to talk to someone and leave your number, because gods forbid you actually can talk to a live receptionist - and you never receive a damn call back. Rinse, repeat.)

Anyhow, so yeah, I'm still fairly stressed and strung-out. Other things are contributing to this, but I won't go into that rant here. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it all starts getting better soon. :(
