I have been sick since last Tuesday. That is almost a WEEK spent in bed, with the exception of dragging myself to work/class on Thursday and feeling a bit better (enough to shop :3) on Friday. Started with a cold, then hello UTI, and then the stupid antibiotics they gave me gave the worst stomach cramps EVER and I had to stay in bed for like 2 1/2 days. I FINALLY feel less like death now, but I'm still really glad I don't have to do anything but go to class at five. As much as I motherf-ing hate being sick, it was nice to just stay in bed for almost a week, lol. And spending the entire weekend in Jeremy's bed or asleep in his lap definitely could have been worse. It's nice having someone who makes even the shittiness of being sick a little bit better.

In other news, my library caught fire!! Like 10 minutes after I left on Thursday night. There was an electrical fire or something in the part they're renovating, and they had to evacuate the building and now it's closed all week because they have extensive clean up to do. Good side? I don't have to work all week! Bad side? That's like $180-ish I'm not getting. :(

Um um...I re-watched Veronica Mars season 2! I have rediscovered my deep love for Logan Echolls, although I am not as enamored of the violent little scamp as I once was. Season 2 really is a quality season, though, upon repeat watchings. Still not as solid as season 1, but when you re-watch you can see a lot of hints they dropped about the end earlier in the season that expected, given how WAITWHAT the ending was.

Officially 100% caught up with One Piece! So exciting!! But now Jeremy and I don't know what to watch. I'm downloading Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Mushishi right now, but I'm totally open to suggestions!

So...anime recommendations?

In other news, I am super sick. My body seems to hate the first few weeks of the quarter, and whenever I get one illness, my already shoddy immune system decides to let in pretty much any other bug that wants to jump on in. So I'm two days into couch/bed rest. Guh.

Also, the new Glee was amazing.

It feels good to dress up again )


I wrote the first draft of my personal narrative today. I'm writing about the time I met the little girl who had the same cancer I had at relay for life junior year. She was so sweet. She passed away about a year after I met her...I wish I'd kept more in contact or something. It's hard to write about it. I'm good at talking about my health problems in like a nonchalant, "yeah I had cancer twice just a fact of life you know" sort of way, but as soon as I actually tap into the emotional part of it? Not so easy. I've only recently really started even dealing with those issues, I've always really just pushed them away and specifically ignored them. But I suppose that's what writing a personal narrative is about.

Now I'm at the media center at the library waiting to watch the extra assigned video. Bleh. Have to write a "short paper" about it tonight, and then I'm free to watch the like 7 episodes of Gossip Girl I downloaded! Huzzah.

at school

Apr. 8th, 2009 04:44 pm
I'm sitting in some random room, hiding from the cold until my class starts at 5. I'm kind of nervous because I've never taken American Studies before, I'm concerned I'm going to be the only non-Asian American in the class, and when I e-mailed the professor to tell her I'd be missing the first day she said, "I don't usually make exceptions for people who miss the first day of class, but I don't want you spreading your disease, so...". All my others professors were just like, "Oh my! Feel better!" so I don't know if she was trying to be funny or if she's kind of scary. We'll see, I suppose. I'm excited about the class, though: AMST 127E Asian American Women. Right up my alley. Right now we're focusing on "herstory" <3.

In other news, my chest hurts. From the breathing, and the cold, and the pneumonia. You know. Aside from that, I feel pretty much fine, though. Still a lil out of it, but fine.

Also, listening to the Marie Anoinette soundtrack. I wonder if this movie and/or its soundtrack will ever get old? It's one of those things that I love sort of beyond reason. The movie more so than the soundtrack. Most people thought it was shallow, but I dunno, I just really loved it. And for more than just the costume porn. It was beautiful and I loved the feeling and mood and history that in evoked, rather than showed, I suppose.

This is what happens when I update when I'm bored at school...ramble ramble...

rain?

These are kind of old )


I didn't take very many pictures over Spring Break...I was either OMG!BUSY or sitting on the couch watching True Blood/One Piece all day. It was nice, I saw and/or talked to all of my best friends, shopped with my mommy, and was able to not think about school for a while.

Of course, now I'm back in school and a week behind from the motherf-ing pneumonia. Pneumonia can diaf, srsly. And now it's raining! They always say, "Don't go out in the rain, you'll catch pneumonia!" Oh, wait, I ALREADY HAVE IT. ARGH. This is what happens when I don't pay attention to the weather, it changes on me, unexpectedly. Rawr.

ugh

I have been SO sick for SO long. Started with a sore throat on Monday evening, ended up with me in the hospital TWICE, once for dehydration and once for COUGHING UP BLOOD WTF. Turns out I have (had?) pneumonia. Missed my whole first week of school. Couldn't work, can't work this week either. Blech.

I feel better now, though. I'm...fatigued, but at least not ill. And I'll be back at school tomorrow. Gotta keep on truckin' as they say.

So, I had my blood stolen by a doctor the other day and I got my results yesterday. Turns out, I have Almost Dangerously High Cholesterol and Really Need to Work on it. Uggggh. I've learned to cook (sort of) recently, but everything I make is egg and or cheese based and those would be the exact things I need to cut back on. Ugggghhhhh.

In other news, leaving for Comic-Con tomorrow! I'm really excited but picking out clothes has been difficult. It's not like AX where I was just like "Loli! Decora! Cosplay!"...I'm trying to make cute outfits around my geektastic shirts, but I only have three that I like right now. Pfffft.

I've finally given in and am reading Naruto. So far, Kakashi-sensei is my favorite, Sakura is annoying, Naruto is ehh, I'm undecided on Sasuke, and there are a looooooot of side characters. Like, whoa. I'm only on chapter like 95 out of 400 something, so I've got a ways to go but it's something to do when I'm just sitting around. Like right now.

illness

So, as so frequently is true, when I get stressed out I tend to get ill. Such as sunday evening, all day yesterday, and today. Sunday evening I still worked because I am a good little library worker bee (and sunday nights are dull), but I spent all of yesterday in bed. My wonderful day-off-from-school-therefore-REASEARCHLIKEHWHOA day became sleep and watch the history channel on and off day. Today I dragged myself out of bed around 10, felt a lot better, went to school with every intention of getting some shit done to make up for yesterday, when I realized...getting up and moving around makes me feel very, very ill. So I napped at a study carrel-thingy for about 20 minutes until the sickness subsided and I felt normal again. Got a little done, went to class, SUCH a waste of my time, came home, and realized I am SO not ready for my Japanese test on Friday. I was going over the review sheet (which we are supposed to have finished by tomorrow, but which she did not send out until yesterday), and if I weren't so tired from illness, I would've started freaking out. That's the one good thing about my stress-induced sickness: it puts things in perspective and makes me too tired to stress, so I tend to just get things done with less emotional waste.

I'm going to try to make some more headway on the review sheet, but I think I may just turn in for the night and watch Becoming Jane.
I have to read about 400 pages a week, that I actually do have to read because of reading quizzes. I also have to do the research for one 10 page research paper and one 15 page research paper, in addition to the aforementioned 400 pages. These two papers are more or less my only grades in these classes. I also have a steady amount of Japanese homework and memorization to do, 16 hours of work a week, and I have a checklist of roughly 20 things to do for my EAP application. I fall asleep by 11:30 every night because I get up at 8:30 (at the latest) and am working on schoolwork all day and evening.

And Joel wonders why I've been having panic attacks so often lately.
Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick.

Sylar kissed a girl. It was just wrong.

In other news I am siiiiiiiiiiiick.

Sooo...I took a midol like 5 hours ago and washed it down with a Diet Coke and apparently that is a bad idea. Like, midol has caffeine and so does coke so now I'm awake at 1 AM with no sign of sleepin'.

I made my icon. Isn't Zooey cute?
