[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;;

So y'all I was thinking, right. And it seems to me like a lot of you (like all of you) avoid some of my more ranty posts. And I figure it's like, you don't agree with me but I sound like I might hunt you down and bite your face for disagreeing with me? And I won't do that. I mean, I do like debate, I really don't mind people disagreeing with me, as long as you're respectful and not patronizing about it.

(I assume none of you are going to express an opinion like that I should be checking myself into a mental health hospital for being trans or else you would not be reading my journal and getting trans cooties on your eyeballs and digital feelers? But yeah that isn't an opinion it's bigotry)

So yeah. I won't rip you apart for disagreeing, promise. Like [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace disagrees with me sometimes and you know OBVIOUSLY HE IS WRONG AND WILL AGREE EVENTUALLY e u e but he's still alive, for the most part.

Also, I feel like I should follow this post up with a bit because it seems in retrospect like it might not have been entirely comprehensible to cis readers, because like...there's some things that I've realized almost all cis people just do not know or have any way really of knowing, and this in particular is one of the things, pertaining to that entry:

Omg long )

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.

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

Just got back from the high school's production of Sweeney Todd. It was fuckin' awesome.

Paige had two parts in the show - as a townswoman and as one of the women in the asylum. After the asylum inmates escaped, they ran up and down the aisles terrorizing the audience and singing with the beggar woman. It was awesome.

I continue to be incredibly impressed by the school's arts and music program...after I left, of course. :P Oh well, it's not like I especially aspired to go to any great heights with my clarinet.

Also, mom and dad both absolutely hate the plot of Sweeney Todd. Dad is grossed out by the pies. Mom says it's 'too freaky-deaky' and 'it sucks'.

Yeah, she uses the word 'freaky-deaky' often. She uses words like that, and thinks it's really cute that she does so. D|
