Hey there fellow LJs. So its farewell to the shop for a couple of months due to my surgery coming up this friday (oct 9) :( . I don’t know what I’m going to do the whole time. I’m too active and work habited to be layin in bed. Reason for surgery you ask? I was born epileptic with scar tissue on the left temple of my brain and since then its been getting worse. So now I head to the specialists in neurosurgery to get 16 cubic cm of my brain removed with high hopes of the seizures stopping 100%. But I’m not worried about the surgery lol. Its me being bored to tears with my tools rusting thats going to bother me >:( . What to do what to do…
