It's been a busy time here in my life. All sorts of craziness. I finally had my sleep study. I did a regular night study, and an MSLT study to assess my daytime sleepiness. I don't know anything yet as my doctor hasn't called me. All I know is that I didn't snore, so I'm pretty sure that rules out sleep apnea. I also hit REM stage in 3 of my 4 twenty minute naps. Not sure what that means, but at least they'll know how tired I have been. *shrug*
It's going to be a very busy semester ahead. I am taking Intro to Photography (film and darkroom style, yo), Video Production, Intro to Mac OS X, Engineering Graphics, Web Design and Dreamweaver, and Multimedia Design with Flash. Also I auditioned for the Concert Choir, and made it... so I'm now an Alto 2 in that, which is a free performance credit. We practice about 6 hours a week. So that pretty much all consumes my Monday thru Friday morning. Then I usually work two to three nights on the weekends, leaving me (maybe) one free day a week. This semester is going to fly by!
I was going to write a huge long post but I've started to realize how much I have due for classes tomorrow, which I have straight from 1:30 pm to 9 pm. So I will update this more later, with hopefully less boring stuff.
Here I sit at nearly two in the morning, mulling around ideas in my head, trying not to notice the pain. It's been a very long week indeed. I still have so much to do for class today, but it hurts to do much more than sit in a very stationary position, I'm only still sitting up because I took a pain pill I've never taken before and want to make sure it doesn't affect me badly before chancing dozing off. Especially since I've already had one dizzy spell. So I figured blogging would be a good way to kill some time.
A few nights ago, I threw my neck out (again) in my sleep. So I'm sitting here in my neck brace trying to figure out how I'm going to get everything done, and hoping my professors will understand if I don't. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow to get checked out, hoping that it's nothing serious, like infection that travelled from my abscess tooth I still need to take care of.
Other than life being a pain in the neck, quite literally, things have been going alright. The school thing has been really stressful lately, but I'm pulling through. I just can't wait until this semester is over. It has definitely taught me some lessons on the whole learning process that I think I'd forgotten about, having been away from school for so long. I'm super excited for next semester, seeing as even though I'm going from 12 to 17 credits, I feel that I'm ready to start leading a more organized life. If that means cutting out my social life, then I guess I'm prepared to take that step. There's still telephone and email during quick study breaks. Friends that are friends will understand when a person is busy.
I have a sleep study scheduled for mid-January, and I'm super excited to maybe solve the mystery of why I am always so freaking tired. On top of that, I am looking forward to starting the new year right. I'm talking a complete lifestyle change. I'm cutting out pop and most junk food, save the occasional treat, revamping my diet... and you'll catch me at the gym at least three times a week.
Top it all off, I'm getting ready to fly to Phoenix over the new year to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and niece! I'm SUPER excited about that one! Then once I'm back in Minnesota, it's time to hunt for a new job to fit my new class schedule. Hopefully one in Moorhead as well.
Well, that's about it for tonight I think.
Oh, and Missa... if you read this... you'll have your PawPrint article within the next couple days... sorry for the lateness.
So, every Thursday I am going to post a list of 13 songs I like... so, here goes! (And some of these are definitely explicit, so listen at your own discretion)
1. Synthetic Elements - "Savor the Taste of Disgrace" (If you like Flogging Molly, or the Bouncing Souls...)
2. Feist - "My Moon My Man" (Wonderful catchy tune)
3. Thievery Corporation - "The Passing Stars" (Mellow awesomeness)
4. Princess Lover Officiel - "Mon Soleil" (No idea what it means, but it's pretty, and chill.)
5. Love Story Hero - "Tower of Bliss" (Beautiful song)
6. Lights - "February Air" (Melodic and relaxing)
7. Stereophonics - "Dakota" (Really liking this one... nice rhythms and stuff)
8. Porcelain and the Tramps - "Red Light District" (Interesting... Electronica)
9. Angelspit - "A La Mode A La Mort" (electronica - good beat, quite explicit)
10. Blutengel - "Soul of Ice" (German Electronica/Gothic/Industrial)
11. kidneythieves - "Before I'm Dead"
12. Assemblage 23 - "Madman's Dream" (Electronica - depressing lyrics, but true)
13. Ayria - "My Device" (Industrial/electronia... this girl rocks!)
So.... I really REALLY REALLY want to see OOTP... BUT I can't afford it! This moving thing really stinks. *sigh* I'm still sooo tempted to spoil it for myself by reading people's thoughts on it and stuff. I wanna know!
So, I've been thinking a lot lately... and it's amazing, when I look back at where I was a couple of years ago compared to where I am now. Well, not where... who really. I've never really blogged about this I don't think, but I'm in the mood to just reflect on some things, and what the heck, I don't think too many people read this anyway... and if you do, I guess you'll just have some insight to what I've been through and whatnot.
( Really Long Story of My Life Under HereCollapse )
Ok, for some reason it feels so good to put all of that stuff out there. :) Writing is so wonderful. And I apologize if I made no sense anywhere in there (which I'm sure happened.)
You all rock. <3
So I threw my back out while sleeping a couple nights ago... and... I am going to the Dr. tomorrow morning (with no health insurance) not to mention missing way too much work. Not fun.
*sigh* That's all. I'm gonna go try find where I put those stupid muscle relaxers I have. And an icepack. *nods*
So... I often get friend requests on Myspace from spammers, survey people, and just people who want as many friends as humanly possible.
Today though, was different. I got a friend request from (drumroll please) a cult.
Never thought I'd get a friend request from a cult. It was the "Friends of Water" or something like that and they believe the promiseland is an ocean in the core of the moon.
All I can say is that they are a very easily persuadable people... or have a lot of good drugs or something.
*shrug* I laughed. So I guess it was worth something.
Today... (well yesterday technically) was amazing. I looked at some apartments, met this really cool guy I met online for coffee and acoustic music for a couple of hours, then headed out to meet my friend Alesha. I've known her since we were little, and she brought her mom out to the bar... lol. Some of our other friends came out too. The funny thing was I had the most fun when they all took off and I figured I wanted to dance anyway. Ended up doing this crazy improv-style hip-hoppish partner sort of type dance with some random dude, which was totally fun to just make things up and play off each other... and a few people were definitely amused. :D Then he started a "spin the bottle game" with dancing where we got like 20 people in a circle and kept spinning the bottle to see who'd go dance in the middle. It was crazy fun liek whoa.
So yeah. Apartment looking... eh. Coffee date thing went really really well. :D (at least I thought so, but I guess I'll find out, hm?) And I got to DANCE. Ahhh today was like, the perfect day. Work's gonna be hell tomorrow (well, today) though. I have to get up in less than 5 hours. Should I even sleep? *wonders if she'll hear her alarm.*
