lea_hazel: Arthritis: It does the body bad (Health: Arthritis)
My head hurts because I didn't sleep enough (thanks Obama Skyrim) and my eyes hurt because I did an eye exam. Not an EOG, one of the ones with no electrodes. But still, like half an hour of flashing lights and my eyes tearing up. I want to rest my eyes, but I don't want to sleep because it'll prevent me from resetting my night sleep to a semi-reasonable manageable time-frame.

The problem is, literally every source of entertainment I use involves white light screens and eye strain. Goddamn.

For some reason, eye exams tend to put me in a bizarre frame of mind. Weird emotional stuff. )

Anyway, embodiment issues.

I have the whole week off and I was planning on doing some social stuff and whole hell of a lot of writing. I may twine a bit. I... also may write a meta piece about Skyrim. Which I would then post here, and not on Tumblr. I'm not gonna lock it, but I'd probably want it to be linked either selectively or not at all. The last thing I want is to open a meta essay with "rules of engagement" so to speak, but I'm fraught and my energy for conflict is nonexistent.

Anyway, Passover, yeah. Favorite holiday. Best time of year. Totally worth the lack of bread, and ~50% of my other favorite foods.

I'm gonna go lie down before I hurt myself.

lea_hazel: The outlook is somewhat dismal (Feel: Crash and Burn)
I was meant to print out this month's scripts last night, and then this morning. I came to print them now and the printer gives an alert that it's low on ink. Cyan ink. Come on, printer, you don't need specifically cyan ink to print a prescription. Fuck whoever decided that this thing will force me to buy ink I don't need instead of giving me the option to print in B&W.

And life stuff. )

In good news, I've been writing fic and it's fun and happy-making. Still in the total obsession (if not quite honeymoon) phase of Shiny New Fandom. Whenever I'm not playing or reading or writing... I'm thinking about playing or writing. My AO3 page is starting to gradually show the signs.

Did a test for a job. Owe a phone call for another job. Looked up Open U and they had no useful information to provide, other than reminding me that I signed up for a group with no face-to-face instruction. Now I need to do lunch, but I've gotten to the place where I'm too hungry to eat, I have no appetite and there's nothing especially tempting in the house.

Health blather )

Anyway I got the [community profile] femslashex in and it's... uh, in English. It has sentences and there are girl kisses and more than a thousand words. Technically it meets the qualifications for a fill. Whether it can exceed the base level requirements is beyond my capacity to speculate on, right now.

I am going to go eat a food.

It took three days and several reinstalls, but it appears I finally have a working printer. No more trundling off to my parents' house to print prescriptions. No more waiting on line at the post office to send faxes. Granted, the frequency with which I need these services is still baffling to me, but at least now I have them readily available.

Now, if only I can get all my scripts synchronized so I can fetch them only once a month, instead of, oh, twelve different trips.

"It'll be quicker and easier to just get my own printer!"

Famous last words.

We've been sorting through years (in my brother's case decades) of comics to figure out what we keep and what we try to sell. All the keepers go in my spacious new cabinets, sorted into shoeboxes for convenience (we are out of boxes and need more). I've taken this opportunity to try and catch up with monthlies I haven't been keeping up with. During school time, it was hard to keep in mind things like "when the monthly comics package comes in the mail" and "what happened last month" and "how far along am I" and besides, I was finding it generally harder to read.

Looking at the current subscription, there's a bunch of stuff I'm not sure I want to keep up with. Why did we subscribe to JLA, again? It seemed like a good idea at the time. And now that X-Factor is wrapping up (seven years of my life, right there) I don't know if we'll find enough monthlies we want to make shipping worthwhile. Legit, if I could get Saga digitally, I might just drop everything else. I just need to talk to my brother about it.

Then today I went to the pharmacy and sat for the make-up lady for about an hour. And made a hole in my budget. Good news, though, everyone says I look fantastic. I don't know if I'll ever get used to mascara, though.

Otherwise I'm just drowning myself in fandom and fanfic projects, trying to brush up on professional topics that I haven't touched in ages, and generally keeping busy to keep anxiety at bay. Trope bingo is going better than I had been concerned. For a while it looked like I'd have all ideas and no follow-through, a disease I'm intimately familiar with. However, things are looking up and that helps me generally feel good about myself. Well, the Wellbutrin gets some credit, too.

I'm still trying to cut out all alcohol and all caffeine from my diet. I feel like the waters are very muddled now and I want things to be a bit clearer. I've been wanting to do this for a long time and it has not been as successful as I might have hoped, I keep starting then slipping.

For example, last Wednesday I went to see Man of Steel with my brother and we both found it absolutely dreadful. But when we were waiting for the movie I completely spaced out and bought a half-liter diet coke before I even remembered that coke has caffeine in it. When I checked the details it turned out that coke has more caffeine than decaf, which is the only coffee I have in the house right now.

So at the moment I'm craving coffee something severe and trying so hard to be good, and not even sure if it's worth it.

MOS really was completely awful, and it's not like I had high expectations or anything. It wasn't even Nolanized the way we expected, it was just crudely written and edited and made no sense.

One month from today I'm turning twenty nine.

Apparently the easiest way to detect my post-Ritalin drop is when I start yawning outrageously. *rubs jaw*

Preliminary reports from the med trenches indicate antidepressants may now be on the negotiating table. Hmph.

First things first, the exam went well. And I feel good about it. Which is good.

After I got home I crawled into bed with my tablet (words I've been using with alarming frequency lately) and only just crawled back out when I felt a funny feeling in my stomach. Which turned out to be enormous hunger because I haven't eaten since seven thirty? Dammit, Ritalin!

I had an eye exam today and it's maybe sort of possible I had a reaction to the pupil-dilating eye-drops? It took me a while to notice, but I was in a pretty bad way and the technician wasn't sure if she could read the partial results she got. She also seemed like she was pretty worried about my state in general. Read more... )

Anyway at least it's over and I got home early enough to have a decent supper and turn in early.

Electricity Woes

I have successfully gotten my electricity cut off due to non-payment.

Now I have to get back to studying. I still have a test Sunday morning.

So, so tired. In addition to the brain-killing heatwave (35 high today, 32 projected for tomorrow), my elbow has been acting up. On the one hand, I'm so glad the systemic medications are basically working and most of my joints function just fine, but alternatively, I wish my elbow didn't hurt so distractingly and so often. I shall go to a pharmacy and see if I can get something topical and OTC for the bad days.

Brain-killing heat also makes it hard to sleep. Add to that the doc switching my allergy medication, it's peak season for my worst pollen, and the new meds were just not cutting it. I kept tossing and turning and then waking up several times a night with a dry mouth. Dry mouth = sure sign that I'm breathing through my mouth because my nose is congested. I switched back to my old spray and skipped statistics this morning to catch an extra couple of hours of sleep.

Lab tomorrow. Super long day. I wonder if I'll be able to squeeze in a nap. On the upside: Tuesday and Wednesday off for Shavuot, aka "the holiday that Lea loves because it's an excuse to eat a metric fuckton of cheese". This also meets no statistics exercise until next week. Woo! {o/

What do you get when you cross a dragon and a unicorn? According to my organic chemistry lecturer Dr. A, a rhinoceros. As an explanation of resonance forms, it makes an odd sort of sense: the two progenitors are just descriptors that don't exist empirically (nooooo!!) but they help describe the cross-breed, which is real. Did I mention that science is awesome lately?

Also, I think it would make great fanart. A rhinoceroid dragon/unicorn hybrid, I mean. Woo!

Also worth noting: I cannot spell "rhinoceros". I had to rely on Firefox's spellcheck to get it right. Sometimes even I forget that English is my second language... and then I remember again.

In other news: I woke up at 8:10 today when I had class at 9, but ended up only being a tiny bit late. I also managed to sneak in some breakfast just before chemistry, so no quinine-induced stomach-turning for me today. Saturday I start my rigorous study sessions. I have a metric assload per Newton squared of mechanics to catch up on. On the other hand, my chemistry folder is super crowded, which makes me feel good about the state of my notes.

Oh! When I returned the not-so-good physics book I found out that the good one is cheaper, and I used the difference to buy... *drumroll* an Israeli fantasy book. I still don't know whether it's any good or not, but hey, don't look a gift unicorn in the teeth.
