[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;;

Why is it not snowing yet though, my life is so sad I need snow to bake Christmas cookies properly!

Anyways here are the plans thus far!

  • Sugar cookies (new recipe! Because the one I have been using...sucks. I will be making some alterations to this one as well to make them a bit sweeter, also maybe almond extract rather than/in addition to vanilla?)
  • Chocolate sugar cookies (same recipe as always because they are tasty and also Tophercrack)
  • Shortbread cookies with OUR NEW COOKIE PRESS OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED and we are dipping some in chocolate and omggggg
  • Stained Glass cookies
  • Gingerbread cookies probably?
  • SNICKERDOODLES and not-snickerdoodles especially for Topher but I will probably eat a bunch as well

I'm probably forgetting some but anyways tonight I am starting by baking some of these to test if they can be altered slightly to make good gift jar cookies. Just going to see if the malt can be added at the same time as the other dry ingredients. I suspect it will be fine.


I wonder if Joanne's sells edible markers?!

Went to see a comedian on campus with my roommate 8D



Last year I would have just laid around in my room like a shy slug lol

'srry I would like to but this is where I live ;n; no scary ppl or loud noise'

But we went and it was TONS OF FUN and we both had umbrellas (I had my best one that I bought in China) so we looked super cool together

And the comedian was SUPER FUNNY and only a little privilegebutt so I enjoyed it. Apparently he's been on Late Night with Conan O'Brien sooo probably pretty good. His name was Michael somethingorother but ANYWAYS

It was a lot of fun and there was rain and it is not as hot anymore

And I can enjoy social contact even when miserable from period (ow) and surrounded by freshman (they got ~paw points for going to it b/c first week stuff is technically orientation events even thou there's comedians and such throughout the year) (some of them tried to start a slow clap omfg such highschoolers luckily it did not get far & the freshman closest us had their unimpress face on)

Anyways yeah see icon for current expression/general summary of my life

I almost didn't go you know, it's because I forgot to read my tarot cards this morning. EVERY SINGLE MORNING I HAVE TO they would have reminded me to do this and not be so scr.

Tomorrow is first day of classes! Barely remember what I am taking, not very excited about any of it except Psychology of Learning kind of. This is part of why I decided to change my major, school should not be a chore for me of all people

Some videos!

First is the video from our failed One-Man Hide and Seek session.

And now, a video in which Tripper plays with rocks. And I am well aware of how embarrassing and generally terrible I sound :C so just ignore me and watch how cute Tripper is.

Also, I had a weird dream this morning. I was napping in Mom and Dad's bed, so it's to be expected, but it was interesting. Basically, I was at school, in a second library that doesn't actually exist, and took an elevator there, forgetting that the elevators were apparently only for staff in that building. Several of the buttons went to floors you couldn't access from the stairs (safety hazard much?). The elevator was also absolutely enormous and sort of oddly-shaped. And then a female student around my age who watched the elevator for unauthorized intruders closed the doors and started ordering the elevator to try and crush me, drop up and down rapidly, etc. :C it was quite distressing.

My week has been kind of crap, being as I somehow managed to leave my binder at home. So I'm Booby McBooberson's* this week.

I actually don't even know where it went. Because I know I didn't wear it on Thursday, because I decided to minimize clothing items due to my back hurting. I thought I left it here. But I must have put it in my hamper and it's still in the laundry.

But mom was able to find some colored white chocolate. She insists it's not candy melts, but already-colored white chocolate. She saw it at the dollar store. I asked her to pick me up some, so hopefully I'll be able to do my white-chocolate wafers/shortbread cookies as planned! I'm all excited for baking this weekend. I'll take a gazillion pictures. My plan is to do a collection of wafers dipped in different colors of white chocolate, and some shortbread cookies dipped in milk chocolate.

*This apostrophe snuck in because I just spent the last two hours editing the written part of a joint project for a business class. The business we're doing it on is called 'Cupcake Charlie's'. I have never seen so many apostrophes in my life.
