|| So my knee still really fucking hurts. Not only that but it pops a lot when I walk and every now and then it just feels like it gets all week. I'm afraid to climb stairs because it especially acts funky then and I'm scared of falling. I've been putting off starting physical therapy because I thought it might heal by itself, but I'm pretty much convinced now that it won't. I guess I'll have to start looking in to some therapists. But OMG I don't wanna.

|| So other than my knee being a bitch I'm doing ok. I'm not sick anymore so that's good. Unfortunately when I was sick last week I missed my Italian midterm, so I gotta make that sucker up tomorrow, ugh.

|| I finally caught up to S2 of Hawaii Five-0. I don't totally hate the season but I do have some issues, mostly with this new character Lori. I don't hate her cause she's new or cause she flirts with Steve, like 80 percent of the fandom, it's just that she's such a weak character. Supposedly she's there to keep an eye on 5-0 and report back to the new governor, but she hasn't done any of that. Then there's the fact she's some kind of profiler, except she never actually has any insights in to the criminals or the victims. Honest to god Danny last season seemed better with people than she does. Then there is her personality, she doesn't have one. I'm not sure if the writers just aren't sure what they want to do with her yet or if the actress is truly that wooden, but it's not good.

I don't hate the idea of Lori's character, it's just that she brings nothing new to the show. I either want her to gain a personality and some purpose in the show or I want her to leave, I'd be happy with either! Plus they really cut down on Danny, Kono, and Chin's scenes in order to include her and I just don't like that.

Well, the haven't added her to the main credits so I'm hopeful she is not a permanent fixture. Maybe she'll become just a recurring character and not one of the mains? That would be good.

Whatever, the first few eps of the season sucked but it seems to slowly be getting better, so here's hoping.

|| Wow, above long rant was long xD

|| I'm starting a new low-carb diet, well not really a diet, more like a lifestyle change. My doctor recommended it to me because I suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Apparently people with PCOS are more prone to diabetes so my doctor said I should eat less sugar and carbs to cut down on my insulin levels. PCOS sufferers often have fluctuating insulin levels which apparently is bad.

Whatever, I just hope I manage to lose weight too. I wouldn't mind losing ten pounds, lol.

|| I'm about 400 words in to my Suits Christmas Exchange fic, but I have the whole thing plotted out already. I'm going to be honest, I don't think I've ever written anything this fluffy in my life. We are talking tiny babbeh kittens level of fluff here.

If my fic was a picture of kittens it would be this one:

Yeah, it's that fluffy.

|| I should probably be working on the papers I have due for my classes but I'm tired and lazy.

|| Car shopping this weekend, very exciting!!!! I am so fucking sick of sharing with my dad, ugh. HE'S NEVER ON TIME FOR ANYTHING!

Vacay time!

// Leaving today for vacation! We'll be heading up to the Adirondacks and Lake George then we'll be going to Cape Cod. We won't be back until the 17th.

// The house does not have internet unfortunately. However I will have my Smart Phone with me and it does get the internet. LJ is actually pretty easy to use on my phone so I'll still be around, maybe.

// Non-Vacation News: Since Sabrina couldn't make it to my party we went out for dinner at out favorite Indian place, where she insisted on paying and we went through a whole ordeal when the check came. Before that I went to her house to buy some Depression Glass that she had. She collects the stuff but she said she had way too much of it so she was selling some. It's very pretty. I bought Pink Madrid cake plates/saucers and Iridescent Normandie cake plates/saucers. We bought a large serving bowl too but Sabrina didn't know what pattern it was.

// Got a new mani/pedi done. My nails are bright blue and my toes are bright purple. I like bright colors, lol.

// I bought two new dresses! I love dresses xD

// I have officially met my goal of losing 10 pounds this summer! Now I want to try to lose 5 more before I got to New York!

// Finally got a hostel booked for New York. It took forever to find a place! Everywhere was booked it seemed! Me and Laurel decided on spending 4 full days there. We'll be gone 6 days though because the train is a full day (13-14 hours) each way.

// A lot's been going down. Let me enumerate for you. (I may be slightly tipsy.)

// Made a Catbook for my cat. Clearly my boredom is reaching epic levels. Epic.

// Finished up another mix. This one is a Steampunk inspired gen mix. So if you like wearing corsets and drinking tea you should get this mix to listen too whilst you are wearing your corsets and drinking your tea. You can get it at [ profile] robbing_banks.

// Went to Cincy last weekend for a Red's game. They lost. And it rained. However we had a truly fabulous meal at Hofbrauhaus, which none of us could pronounce so we just started calling it Hausfrau instead. Over all it was a good night. Even when Sabrina insisted on using my phone to texts Sarah's husband that I had somehow magically gotten her pregnant with the power of German beer and my mind (or something).

// We'll be heading to the Cape in a week and a half. I always enjoy my time there. I just get really nostalgic about the place. I'd post up a picture of the house my father's family owns but I don't actually have one on this computer. It's a nice house even if it was built in 1930 and has no air conditioning.

// Because I'll be on the Cape I won't be home for my 22nd birthday, and man do I feel old. Since I won't be home I decided to have a party early. We're going to eat at a place called Asian Wind and then maybe get some fro-yo. I'd forgotten that we'd eaten there for my 18th birthday too. In the photo I have my hair is so short!

// Mom scampered off to NC. She tried to make me go too and I said no way.

// Still trying to plan out New York.

// I've lost 8 pounds!!!!

+ I somehow managed to hurt my back, really badly. I don't know what I did but for three days I was having back spasms and I've had three emergency sessions with my chiropractor and massage therapist.

+ Pissed at my Tourism teacher. She made her test too long so I didn't get to finish the essay, which was worth 30 pts. 15 kids were sitting there when she called 'Turn in your papers in two minutes or get a 0'. Hopefully she takes that in to account when she grades. She's never taught the class before so I think she just underestimated how long it would take.

+ I've had no time to do anything. I thought I'd get a mix done and the second chapter of mine and [ profile] daigranon's fic finished up but noooo, I've been too busy. If it's not school it's babysitting or friends or stuff at home or I'm laid up high on pain killers.

+ I haven't yet gotten a comfirmation that I'm in for the Japan program. Now I'm getting worried...

+ Started a new diet. It's pretty stict but I'm definately eating healthier and I'm hoping to lose 15 pounds before May 14th.

+ Speaking of May 14th that's Sabrina's Wedding!!!! I mentioned this ages ago but me and Erin (my bestie) are going to be ushers (because she already has 4 bridesmaids and decided she just could not have any more, haha). The wedding colors are so pretty but now I need to buy a dress, BUT FIRST I MUST LOSE WEIGHT! Not that I'm fat, I'm not. I'd just like to lose weight, haha.

+ Tired... is it friday? No? Damn.
