[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;;

potato_head: (6 u 9)


It's ok though this will probably be the last post for a little while. Anyways first of all YAY I just found out Derek has a game tonight so birthday dinner will be postponed til tomorrow. I should be feeling better by then since this seems to be one of those months when all the bite is in the first day or so. So I will actually be able to eat my birthday dinner yaaaaaay and then afterwards we might go out to the movies YAAAAAYYY

Okay now the real reason for this post Aramii forever )

Also um...HAVE SOME MUSIC 6 u 9

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

So we got to Shanghai a few hours ago.

The train ride was terrible because first a guy sat next to me and shaved in his seat (???!! REALLY?) and also on the way in I almost squished a small child through the combined efforts of his lazy-ass mother and an impatient Professor Yu. And then my body decided the middle of a five-hour train ride was the best time for my period to start, so I went and dragged my luggage out to get a pair of panties and pads and ahdsafjdsagkds I was really upset but then convinced myself with all of the fog that the train had crashed and we were in Silent Hill and that was enough of a distraction to cheer me up.

But now that I'm here it's AWESOME. Okay so we haven't seen much of the city yet but we went out to eat and you guys I didn't really realize that Shanghai was so close to the ocean and there is SO MUCH SEAFOOD. SO MUCH.

We passed by this restaurant that had just like. A huge. Fucking. MOUNTAIN. Of crawfish. Like this pile had to be at least three feet high and five feet across and there were even more in these crates next to the street it was like crawdad heaven I LOVE CRAWFISH SO MUCH. And Ying said they do them spicy like in the US, I am so excited to get into some.

And at the place we actually had dinner they had squid and it was the BEST SQUID I HAVE EVER HAD. Seriously, nothing in the US can compare, in US restaurants they tend to just like...batter it as blandly as possible and put it with marinara sauce (?? not that I'm complaining because I'll put marinara on like, anything, I dipped chicken fries in it once because we were out of ketchup) and just trust that people will think it's super exotic because it's squid and that's enough. Here they had it with a kind of spicy tomato sauce with actual roasted red peppers in it (I could see them) and the batter was spiced and they weren't over-fried it was SO. GOOD. And I've never had fried squid with rice before, it was really awesome.

The restaurant also had these things on the menu that looked like giant pupas or maybe rollie-pollies (pillbugs or woodlice to some of you, although I'm thinking of the variety that are actually small millipedes and not woodlice). Prof Yu said they were a kind of worm (maggot maybe? A larva?) and I'm thinking of trying them if we go back.

Okay that's it for now, I took a few photos but they're just of the train station and crap, I'll put them up later.

Also, did anybody notice the multiple cute guys faving my photos on flickr, wtf is that all about
