[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;

Some days now I wake up and my hair looks like this.

And nobody even tells me any more, I just wander into the bathroom and look in the mirror and think a spiky, malevolent entity is attacking my head.

I need a haircut.

Hey guys! I know I got a bunch of new friends from that [livejournal.com profile] ontdcreepy friending post, and actually I've gathered a lot of new friends in the past month, who knows where from. Also I am feeling a bit down today because I had to drop someone from my friendslist for unexpected homophobia. Also, having a bunch of new people watching me on their flists kind of intimidates me a little? o u o;;; I am pretty shy. So I figured we could do a little introduction thingy? By which I mean I dug up an old meme.

So here's the deal: You post in the comments and tell me three things about yourself, and ask me three questions (about whatever you want). I'll answer the questions. Then you go ahead and do it yourself in your own journal c:

(Don't worry, if you're shy too and don't want to do it or if you just hate me and don't want to actually bother to talk to me, I won't be mad or anything)

(Also old friends can do this too, it's not just for the new ones)

Ugh LJ

Oh look, the new comment pages went into effect. Joy.

I don't understand why something like this, that sacrifices functionality for someone's questionable ideas of aesthetics, can't be optional. Usually I don't care too much what changes they make to LJ, but hiding comment subjects? What the fuck?

Also, with the way comment pages load now, no way will I be able to browse on my phone. Again, no added functionality. This is all just so it 'looks better'.

I have a feeling they're blindly reaching towards the 'facebook' aesthetic in hopes it will make LJ seem more trendy/relevant. If that's the case, I am seriously unimpressed. There are very few good reasons to imitate a more popular service or company, and I can't see any of them being at play here. Facebook isn't even a direct competitor. You might call LJ social media, but facebook is not a blogging platform, nor is anybody using it like one, although the function is potentially there.

I might just be irritated by the fact that facebook is everywhere these days. I don't have a problem with facebook. I have a problem with all the websites that suddenly offer syncing of your account there with your facebook account. How many people actually use that? I've observed very few on LJ. It shows a lack of understanding as to why facebook is so popular and how to increase interest in one's own site. It worries me when the websites I enjoy are clearly in the hands of people who don't know wtf they're doing.

I'm going to stop now, I should probably sleep. Oh, but first:

If [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom and I were to take over a terraforming mission and make the planet into a, hmm, Genosha, who would want to come with us? Privilegebutts need not apply, you can take over your own terraforming mission and go make Planet Bigotry and enjoy yourselves over there. Fair warning: I will probably institute communism. Feel free to fight me on it though

P.S. Also help me settle on my next haircut? I'm getting it done soon. Plz tell me what to do. Here is what it looks like now, I took pics just for you guys:

Terrible right? Make me some suggestionsss

Um, what?

So is there anyone who can explain to me in small words like, what Obama is doing in Australia

With that military outpost or whatever

I am really confused and somewhat concerned and the articles I have found are not helping. Are we going to be nuked by Australia and/or China? Why are we staking claims on other countries and why is China so pissed about it? SOMEBODY HALP I FEEL STUPID

Anyways I'm making snickerdoodles later so if we get nuked sometime soon that would suck.
