[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;;


ETA TAG PARTY

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)

Soooo Paige is playing Animal Parade, one of the newish Harvest Moon games. (I am still only good at A Wonderful Life, but she got Two Towns for xmas and has offered to let me try it)

I am watching her start the actual plot, which involves rescuing the Harvest Goddess. Apparently nature's power is drying up, and this has some sort of...effect on the people, as well. She says soon people would not be able to live there. Also, children are...disappearing.

None of the characters seem actually all that concerned about the disappearance of their children.

What if they haven't disappeared? What if they've been...hidden? The townspeople have no way of knowing what the Harvest Goddess wants; so if they started to make guesses...out of desperation, since they literally can't leave (the town is on an island, and Paige informs me there is very little wind, so it's difficult to leave the island)...well, TBH, that the Harvest Goddess might require a sacrifice wouldn't be an entirely unreasonable guess.

But what would the sacrifice do to her? To the land that apparently depends on her and this mysterious 'power of nature'?

Well, I was just thinking...not much grows in Silent Hill.

GUESS WHAT

GUIZ GUESS WHAT I DID

GUESS WHAT GUESS WHAT

IIIII

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

...

Y U NO IMPRESS

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

Tripper dropped one of his bones on my foot. Um, it was heavy. Ow. I think he managed to break three of my toes in one go P:

In other news, I re-discovered Fundies Say the Darndest Things! today and made the incredibly bad choice of actually reading it. And I'm going to cut the rest of this because I'm going to repeat some of the things I read there and they are really, really bad, and possibly triggering (for rape anddd...general really, really terrible hate speech, I don't even know how else to describe it, this stuff is terrible; also, same goes for the link above to Fundies Say the Darndest Things, since this is all shit from there)

cut for triggery hatred )

So why would I read this shit? I don't even really find it amusing at any point.

There is a reason; basically, it's in my nature to try to hear out ANYBODY who tries to make a point. If somebody has thought through something and came to a conclusion, I want to hear it, I want to try to understand what they're saying, I want to know what they've learned. It's part of me being a general um...knowledge-hound? And also, I think, because I so much value free and logical thought.

I rarely experience cognitive dissonance. (This is probably a fault.) This is why, I think, it hits me so hard when I am caught between exploring free thought and the revelation that some people, through what they see to be logical thought, arrive at the above conclusions. I'm not sure what to do with that.
