Okay that was totally amazing. I clicked on one of msn’s atkins/ediets ads because I was bored, filled out my information, and it will not let me have anything to do with their program for even maintaining my current weight untill i gain at least 5-7 more pounds.
In other news, school started this past wednesday, and on the whole, it has been really awesome so far! I originally had like 23 units for this semester, but I think I’m going to trim that down to around 16, which is still quite a few units over the full-time-student-12. This still leaves me with tuesday and thursday essentially free, but since I’m now taking mairu to school (and even sharing some classes with him) I need to be there anyway, so I may still add a class if any of my friends have something particularly interesting-sounding.
What am I taking?
-Analytic Trigonometry with rory and the oldest teacher on the planet [FOX NEWS ALERT: APTEKARS A PLENTY IN MATH 130; TEACHER NOTES “SURPLUS OF APTEKARS” LOUDLY AND CLEARLY)
-Intro to Object Oriented Programming also with rory (yay a ridiculously basic java class! I love free credits)
-Descriptive Intro to Physics
-Visual Perception (basically like an into photography class, seems totally interesting)
-Topics in Lit: Gay and Lesbian Literature (unfortunately this class hasn’t met yet, I can’t wait though, to see what it’s like ^_^)
I also have a marketing class, but I’m not certain whether or not I’m actually going to take it. So thats my 16/19 units (marketing is the extra 3) and I may still add another class, and then its on to finding a nice part time job. Hopefully a cafe or bookstore or something.
Okay that was terrible. I go in to the hospital today to get my bloodwork done, and it was an absolute disaster. First off the waiting room was ridiculously crowded, so I spent quite a while browsing slashdot and talking to kayla22 while waiting, which was at least something other than reading their terrible magazines. Everyone was looking at me, I kept freaking out. Then I get called finally, go into the blood drawing room, and the lady pokes me and starts drawing blood. It quickly stops coming, she calls for someone to help her, and I recieve this wonderful pressure in my arm, so I start going ow, ow, and she takes it out after freaking out herself. Eventually someone else shows up and says to try a different vein. So we are now on my right hand, and she is getting blood, but it hurts, but I just want this DONE with, so I tell myself to shut up. The blood quickly stops coming again, and it REALLY hurts. She removes the needle as I am blacking out, and then all of a sudden there are more people telling me to do things like put my hand somewhere and lie my head somewhere. I say that I want to lie down and they pay very little attention. For whatever reason I am sweating all over. Finally I am put on a cot thing and they start fanning me. I’m very dizzy, very sweating, and very shitty. They get me orange juice and after quite some time I can get up. I walk over to the cafeteria and down a cup of soup and half a sandwich, value priced at 8 bucks without a drink -_-. I also down two packets of sugar. I walk back over to the lab. After standing around for longer than I should have had to, one of the guys stops pretending to be busy, points me in the direction of a competent professional, and I get all three vials done quick and easy.
I am so fucking drained right now I feel like I am dead. Walking up the stairs to my apartment was so hard, I almost fell backwards on one of the steps because I MISSED. Fuck fucking mills peninsula hospital aside from the ronaldo guy who didnt fucking suck ass.
I’m going to go sleep for 6 months. See you in february!
