3 weeks of student teaching left. There will be so much partying sleeping when I am done with this, OMG.

Also, as a big ol' homo who normally loves the Olympics, uggg, so many feelings :(

I've barely watched 5 minutes of the Olympics. Just can't bring myself to care.

Getting a lot of use out of the Kindle! I've gone through all of the old Legends of Lone Wolf novels, Battletech, on Shadowrun now. I really wish the powers that be would convert older, out of print novels to ebook format because I'd love to be able to read them. All that old Spelljammer and the old Shadowrun novels and everything.

I just keep telling people "Just think! The World Cup will be there in four years!"

...that is not a good thing, given how Brazil is faring.

So my sinuses have been hell on earth this week and it's mainly been pressure / disorientation which really sucks because it's worst in my building and in my office but bearable to nonexistent outside of work. It's amazing because all but two of the managers have come down with this crud and I don't know if I was stupid or lucky to be able to still work when the other two confirmed cases had to take several days off.

Got my tax return back. Stuffed most of it away but I did buy a handful of Breyer horses. >.> Annd I bought a silver dollar for $26.00!

I really want to buy Bravely Default but it's sold out around here and I'm not sure I want to digitally download it as I have a hit and miss history with JRPGs. I'm going to play Dream Drop Distance in the meantime mostly because I really enjoy the controls / fight aspect of it even though Kingdom Hearts is one of the weirdest series ever.

Also Benedikt had his first round of shots and will have his kitty bits chopped off soon. He did surprisingly well on leash and mostly sat on my shoulders the whole time.

I super want to watch the Olympics but instead I'm stuck living at the library. Avoiding the mountain of work I should be doing.

I...kinda have a date for next Sunday?

*cue panic*

We're redoing my bathroom because it is old and it leaked into the floor, rotting the beams below. If/when we ever sell this house, the new owners are going to be all "wtf?" because everything I picked out is deliberately smaller/shorter than fixture standard. I'm 4ft 11, okay, I do not want my feet danging when I'm on the toilet.

This week I finally (after 3 years) told my boss that I've been struggling with depression. I feel a lot better having it out there and I think it's helped alleviate the frustration from me not getting all my work done recently.

So many fucking empathetic hugs, IM DROWNING YOU IN THEM
shoujokakumei 10th-Feb-2014 02:12 am (UTC)
I spent the entire day depressed as fuck and bordering on a panic attack for no reason. No meds left since I lost my insurance in November and haven't gotten approved for Medicaid yet, and I'm also out of weed, so not much to be done about it. Then when I went on Tumblr and started posting gifsets I made to make myself feel better, someone starts complaining about how much they hate the character I'm posting, so now I feel even worse.

I have not watched any of the olympics, which is pretty usual for me- I rarely watch them. Have read some of the stuff about Sochi problems which is sort of amusing and sort of scary.

I'm still sick and getting worse somehow. Thinking I might need to go see a doctor even though it's mostly just cold symptoms, it's been about 3 weeks, and it just has me so exhausted I can't even function at all. I mean, I have fatigue issues normally that make it hard, with this I just can't...

I also have a question for any folks on _P who having hearing difficulties.
So I have an inner ear disorder that causes hearing loss. It's something recent to the last few years, and even worse very recently. Still it's only minor hearing loss but has enough effect that I have trouble hearing people a lot. I've a few times had folks confront me about ignoring them when they said hi or something to me- because I didn't hear them. Which I then explain. But it makes me really nervous now about how often people try saying something to me (particularly if I can't see them when they do), and I have no idea, and then people just assume I'm rude and ignoring them. So I was just wondering if there are any other folks with poor hearing who've had similar issues, and moreso if there are tricks or anything people have come up with for not having people get offended if they try talking to you and you don't hear them?

I don't have hearing loss but my mom is totally deaf in one ear. If she realizes she's missing something she usually just says something along the lines of, "I'm sorry, I have trouble hearing on that side," then makes sure to visibly give whoever was talking her full attention - pausing in what she's doing, making eye contact, smiling, etc. From observing her, I think that last part really helps make interactions go smoothly even if people might have felt annoyed or ignored at first, because it means she gives an explanation for why she didn't hear but also is immediately proactive about remedying the situation.

Visiting instructor coming in this week to teach the aikido classes and then we head down to Richmond for a seminar this weekend. It's exciting! :D

moonshaz Cats in snow pic spam!10th-Feb-2014 02:33 am (UTC)
I. Am. Sick. Of. Winter.

Arctic temperatures. Snow. Ice. Bundling up in 55 layers of clothes. Scraping crud off my car windows every time I want to go anywhere. ALL. OF. It.

In an effort to alleviate some of my frustration, I hereby declare: LET THERE BE PIC SPAM!

astridmyrna Re: Cats in snow pic spam!10th-Feb-2014 04:38 am (UTC)
omg that last cat.

But I relate with the cat who could not feel its face. Only, I was at a tiki bar at Disneyland last week and was teetering on the edge of tipsy and looking into the cavern of utter drunkenness, as my face was basically numb, and I kept poking it because it felt weird.

Have the Olympics on in the ground since I have a bunch of homework due tomorrow, blergh.

But I was so sick all weekend and it was the worst. My nose has been stuffed up all day, my throat has been hurting, and god my chest hurts when I breathe in or out. If I don't feel better tomorrow I am calling the doctor because I can't get through the week with this.

We got a puppy a few weeks ago! I am so tired :p.

His name is Morgan and he was found as a stray. He's at least mostly German Shorthaired Pointer. Not only does he have those spots but he "points", has the correct coat/ears/etc., has webbed feet...basically meets most breed standards. Black and white isn't accepted by AKC but is by other kennel clubs. Plus, around here they're all bred as hunting dogs so color doesn't matter much to the breeders.

He's basically insane but I love him. He's actually helped a TON with my depression and anxiety problems. I already had a dog but she's older and not interested in going places or meeting people/dogs. Morgan, however, is super active and social. He has me on a normal sleep schedule because he wakes up super early, he forces me out of the house, and he's made me way more active (I have to walk/jog with him throughout the day to keep him calm). He's also very snuggly and in tune with my moods. Plus, his friendliness towards people/kids/dogs has forced me to interact with my neighbors and I even made a new friend.

My original dog, Sophie, has benefited as well. She always hated other dogs, even the ones she lived with and was used to. But for some reason, she likes Morgan and the two play together. She NEVER plays with other dogs! He even taught her to play tug o war and to pick up sticks in the yard. Since she's an inactive senior, this is all great for her.

I'm hoping to do agility and/or dock diving when he's old enough. He's only about 4 months old (but could be closer to 5 months, we're not sure).
