[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

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.

TONIGHT: THE BAKING BEGINS.

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.

Also CHECK THESE OUT WTF I HAVE TO MAKE SOME



I wonder if Joanne's sells edible markers?!

So [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom linked me to this, and I disappeared into it for a couple of hours.

Results )

I'll probably resize a few and use them as icons for [livejournal.com profile] owlofowls since I don't have any icons over there yet.

I have a sewing post to do as well, but have to okay it with Paige first anyway so I'll give you guys a break and wait until tomorrow to do that P: and you'd better bet there'll be a baking post this weekend, too. I'm not trying any new recipes so it'll mostly just be photos showing off my cookie decorating skillz.

BTW, I would like it to be known at this time that there are WAY TOO MANY FUCKING SPIDERS IN THIS HOUSE.

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
