I get to pick the electives that I want to take for my last two semesters of my MPH program. Wow. It's kind of hard to imagine that by the end of the year, I'll actually have a graduate degree. I've already started looking for jobs and internships within the realm of public health, and I'm finding all kinds of interesting things that I can do with my degree. Of course, my dream job of working in the BU CTE clinic is far off, but there is a small chance that my resume got their attention. I also am in contact with a groups at UMass Med (Worcester) that conducts research with young people with mental illness in an effort to improve therapy measures specifically targeted for them.

The Penguins' second round series against the Capitals starts tomorrow night, but I also have discussion board posts that need to be done, plus Kyle just gifted me the Grim Dawn Crucible DLC, hoping that I could join in the co-op again tomorrow. Why does everything have to happen at the same time!?
Y'know, when I think back to my time on LJ, there is quite a bit of nostalgia, a bit of regret for letting myself move on, and a touch of cringe, because, well, I was fifteen when I created my original journal, and who wasn't cringey at fifteen?

But there were a lot of memories stored there- high school, making friends, dealing with bullying and the ensuing drama, falling in love for the first time, discovering things about myself, all the way through college, when I started to face life as a person with mental illness. Since my posting petered off, I've gotten and lost a great job, changed my career goals, gone back to school, become a sports fan (I know, something I never thought would happen), started playing video games, and most importantly, I've fallen in love. I met an amazing guy in 2013, and we plan on getting married once I've finished school and gotten a steady income again.

I've definitely changed a lot in the time since I posted that first entry back in... oh god, was it really 2004? That's so long ago. I feel old. I'm turning 30 this year, which is a big milestone. I've come to terms with the fact that I'm nowhere near as close to where I thought I would be at this stage in my life, and the fact that it might take me even more time to fully become what I ultimately wish to be, but I've also learned that I move at a slower pace than most of my peers, and things just take me a bit more time.

So... baby steps. One day at a time.

No laptop burps... so far. )
I'm sitting in the student center at school at the moment, waiting for the guy with whom I'm working on a project to be finished with his classes for the day. We were supposed to meet up yesterday, but a communication error created by the WSC emails meant that his messages never got to me. I was done with my classes at 10:20, so I've been sitting in various places around the building since then, working on the two Powerpoint presentations I need to complete this week.

I feel so awkward sitting here. Before, I would have been hiding at a corner table, or even sitting in my car in the parking lot. I do still sit in my car sometimes (I've even napped in it instead of attending a Speech Disorders lecture one time), but I feel more comfortable with being in public in the past few months. I still get paranoid a lot, but doesn't everyone in situations like this?

God, I am so tired. I've already had one energy drink right after I got out of class, so having another one will probably cause me to have a panic attack, and I can't afford that right now. As soon as I find out if Matt wants to meet up, I can plan a nap into the rest of my day. Probably 3-6; just enough that I don't fall asleep at 10pm again like I did this weekend.

Positive note: I did get to see Maria a lot today. I should ask her if she wants to get together Thursday night and study for our Speech Disorders final on Friday morning.

I still have a half hour until Matt's out of class, so I'm gonna fool with Google Scholar and see if I can find more information on Treacher-Collins Syndrome as an etiology of hearing loss. Bleh.

I am dreading this episode. )
She waited for me in the parking lot (after stalling getting her stuff, I swear).

We walked into class together.

We left class together.

She offered to walk me to my next class. We stood outside the room and talked for a while. She touched my shoulder at one point.

Guys, I have butterflies. I honestly think, for the first time in my life, that someone is actually interested in me in a more-than-friends kind of way.

FUCK. I wish I were kidding.
LIVEJOURNAL BANNED ME FROM POSTING COMMENTS ON [livejournal.com profile] news. I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD ALL KNOW THAT.

BRB BACKING UP MY JOURNAL.
Ok, editing this now, only a few minutes after posting.

Today was my Speech Science final, which I did end up having, but not without a bit of effort to get there. My car was an igloo, so I had to clear it off and everything. My trip went well, until I got to the end of 146, at which point I noticed I was losing a bit of control of the traction, and I couldn't stay in my lane. Then I just completely lost all control and skidded. Luckily the people behind me stopped in time to allow me a bit of space, so I managed to ease on the brakes and turn myself so I was stopped facing in the direction I needed to be. This is, of course, after sliding around so badly that I was actually bracing for impact with the concrete on BOTH sides of the road. But once I managed to stop, I was all set, and there were no problems from there.

That was pretty much the highlight of my day.

Oh, and I'm finished with the semester. I think it went very well.
I've finished Dreams From My Father and moved on to the BBC Radio version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I am loving it so far.

The effects of the ice storm are still being seen. Tomorrow's finals are cancelled, which means that now both make-up days are filled. And it's supposed to snow on Wednesday, when I have my Speech Science final. I have no idea what they're going to do if that gets cancelled, considering tomorrow's were moved to the 23rd.

House marathons make me happy though. Oh awesome, No Reason is on.
Ah, Halloween. The highlight of my year! I love the one day a year that I can dress up in a costume and not be considered a total weirdo. Wilson and I are going to a party at Susanne's in about an hour and a half. And no, I'm not in my costume yet. I should get on that (hurhur).

For those of you who hadn't found out yet, my dear Ruby, the 1994 Oldsmobile I've been driving since I got my permit at 16, gave out on me last week. So, as of today I have a new car- a white 2007 Impala. I love it.

Saw Zack & Miri Make A Porno this afternoon. It was a good movie, but really, really raunchy. Lots and lots of nudity, including full-frontal Mewes. I would not recommend seeing it if you have to go with a parent or someone who is easily offended at all. Very cringe-worthy.

Ok, gonna go get my costume on. Will be tweeting the night.

Welcome to Season Five! )
I keep yawning. This both amuses and annoys me. It's amusing because of the House connection. It's annoying because I can't fucking stop yawning. Honestly, I yawned twice just writing this. Gah.
Apparently I was too vague or jargony in that post last night, so I'm going to be blunt here.

"SSRI" stands for "Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitor."

I have a month's worth of Celexa sitting on my desk right now. It's an anti-depressant. I'm still toying with the notion of taking it. I don't know if I will.

So that's what's happening. I didn't really want to talk about it, but I'm admitting it.

Current music totally related.

Baaaaah.

THE CHARACTER RATING MEME
So, I've been talking with Emma about it, and we were wondering- is it possible to get Salmoned if your IM details are only shown to friends?

I don't think so, but I'm gonna make this a public post and see!
So I'm sitting here eating reheated Chinese food that I bought from the lower caf. I think it's chicken and fried rice?

I don't even know what this is, and I'm eating it. That's bad.
Ellipsis (plural ellipses; from Greek ἔλλειψις 'omission') in printing and writing refers to the row of three full stops (… or . . . ) or asterisks (***) indicating an intentional omission. This punctuation mark is also called a suspension point, points of ellipsis, periods of ellipsis, or colloquially, dot-dot-dot. An ellipsis is sometimes used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence (aposiopesis).
from Wikipedia, "Ellipsis"

You get that people? THREE DOTS. Not twelve.

Jesus. You don't just hold down the period button to your heart's content.
Snagged from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] emma_tennant , yet again.

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.
