Friends?
a lot of my personal posts are locked. just comment here and i'll add you. please tell me a little bit about yourself or add me first so i can take a peek at your journal. if you're looking for fic, there's none here. racists, homophobes, transphobes, KKK members, bigots, supporters of the american family association, misogynists, "radical" feminists who think transgenderism is a lie, etc. etc., not apply.

Yesterday inlcuded a trip to the dentist, where they performed a partial root canal to extract the dead issue from my tooth. The massive amounts of listerine I used actually killed most of my tastebuds, but my sense of taste is starting (slowly) to return.

I'm on antibiotics to take out the infection, as well as some painkillers to control any lingering pain while the infection clears up. The drugs mean I'm dizzy and disoriented a lot of the time, and I have a tendency to become distracted easily. Once I get going today, I'm gonna have to head to campus and get my bike, since I was too out of it to try walking it home on Wednedsay night.

Right now, though, I'm more or less out of pain, which is the main thing.

Come September, I'll have to get the rest of the root canal performed and the crown put on.

Still, right now, I'm just grateful to be functioning.

Still alive, somewhat

Things are good, though I can't begin to tell you how exhausted I am right now. It's literally had to move I'm so exhausted, and keeping my eyes open is a trial. I'm not sure why I'm so worn down — I think maybe spending a few hours at the office surrounded by loud, boisterous people, wore me out. Sometimes people just make me tired.

My bike got a flat, which was irritating — but Mike fixed it for me on Thursday, so I've got wheels again. Boys with bike grease all over their hands and forearms: more attractive than they have any right to be.

Press day on Wednesday should be short, my section's only two pages. I got a second monitor at the office, finally got my desk all set up to accomodate it. It's fucking glorious, I can't even put it into words.

6:45AM, about five hours from home. switching drivers in jasper, i'm half-conscious. got an e-mail from david saying, basically, that both the pieces i did during reading week were good. go me! i'll go back to sleep when the bus starts moving.

as exhausted as i am, there's something really awesome about being on the road.

femmes in dyke communities.

someone linked me this, and it's totally relevant to my kick of femme-themed posts, and i think it's fucking awesome.

i was going to do another femme post, and then maybe something on feminism, but i am so fucking exhausted i don't have words for it. i'm more or less dead on my feet. just got out of the shower, going to find some PJs and brush my teeth and then collapse into bed. i'm not setting my alarm in the hopes that i will sleep in.

BOOK LIST 2010

I've been reading pretty prolifically recently, and I've decided that for the year of 2010, I'm going to make a list of all the books, comics, etc., that I read, so I can keep track of it all.

welcome to my coma

i'm in my last class, with 40 minutes to go. i'm fucking exhausted. 8:50pm.

i've more or less been constantly working since i got to campus around 11am, doing homework in my grace periods. trying to drink sprite to get some sugar, but it tastes kind of gross for some reason. flat or something.

i did come up with a rollerderby name if i do get around to trying it out: malice in wasteland. i'm just trying to decide if it's too close to the character in the novel version of whip it, malice in wonderland. i might just do alice in wasteland, i don't know. thinking, thinking.

thirty minutes to go.

omfg i want sleep.

i'm sitting on a the green beanbag chair in my living room. in a little less than 24 hours, i hope to be sitting on a couch instead. my roommate is doing dishes in the kitchen, and there's a huge pan of fruit crisp in the oven. she talked out neighbour next door into going the grocery to buy vanilla ice cream, and then we will all sit around and eat it.

bill is staring at me. i'm reading stephen king's book, on writing, or have it sitting open in my lap, anyway.

life is peaceful and content. i should be in bed, but i'm not. tomorrow i'll take some books back to the library, and maybe pick up some new one. three of the graphic novels and one YA novel i have on hold have come in.

i just realized i haven't taken my meds today. i'm going to do that, i think, and then curl up in my chair with a blanket and finish the rest of my homework tomorrow.

bden:

tony stark is my hero

i've spent most of the day reading iron man comics. dude, how have they not been in my life before now? i'm even more stoked for the new movie than i was already, seriously. i'm gonna need to branch out into marvel comics something hardcore to fill the gaps, but i'm pretty stoked about it. new things to read!

i'm fucking exhausted -- waking up at 5am sucks. i went back to bed around 7, and slept until 11 or so, but still, it's not the same as getting a decent night's sleep.

my roommate is getting back from golden tomorrow. i've kinda missed having her around the past few days, so i'm looking forward to her being home. have a few more dishes to get done, but the house is mostly pretty tidy.

i have nothing else to say.

New year's resolutions

1. Stay healthy, happy and sane.
2. Have more self-confidence, or at least, fake it. Seriously. Just because I like someone, doesn't mean they must obviously hate me. I will stop sabotaging all my would-be friendships.
3. Get a job.
4. Finish and edit the novel I wrote for National Novel Writing Month in 2009.
5. Keep writing in my paper journal.

What're yours?

quick update:

i ended up going, "omfg i need to sleep in my own bed," and my dad and my aunt gave me some money. dad dropped me off at the LRT (train) station, i rode to the university, then caught a cab home. i hung out with my roommate a bit, took a bath, drank some tea, putzed around on the computer. all of that took me to right now, nearly 2am, and i'm going to crawl into my own bed and get some much-needed sleep.

crosspost test

ignore this

sweet, i found out how to make the icons i use on my dreamwidth account carry over to my LJ posts, so it's not always showing the default icon.

i'm getting sleepy. maybe i'll go to bed soon.

productivity ftw.

okay, so i totally didn't clean my room today.

but we DID put the first coat of paint on the living room. so i was actually productive. time to put some real clothes on, though, instead of paint-stained PJs.

the world on fire

went to my aunt's christmas party last night. i was claustrophobic (so many people!) at first, but eventually i relaxed and actually had a pretty good time. i have three burns on my left hand from my various baking adventures over the last week. one is right on the side of my index finger's knuckle and hurts like a bitch.

so far i'm really liking dreamwidth. the crosspost feature makes it super handy to post to both journals at once.

does anyone else use their dreamwidth account at all? if so, let me know, i will add you.

today i am going to clean my room, finally, it's a disaster. yesterday, while i was out, my roommate rearranged our living room. it is much more handy now, and the computer is on a real desk and everything. it's pretty awesome.

i'm gonna go see if there's an apple turnover left that i can eat, take my meds, shower, get dressed, and then maybe actually be productive.

my parents are going to be here in three days. we need to get the living room painted.

dreamwidth

so, new journal.

this entry will serve a number of purposes: testing my layout, checking to make sure crossposting works, so on and so forth.

for those of you reading this on livejournal, my dreamhost username is [personal profile] slaughterhouse. god, that sounds really somber and depressing, doesn't it? but i just finished re-reading vonnegut's slaughterhouse-five, which is my favourite book pretty much of all time, and i knew i didn't want astrangecity, so that's what popped into my head.

and it was available.

so, slaughterhouse it is.

i'm pretty tired. it's nearly one in the morning here, and my back is sore. we really need to get a couch. i'll see if i can scrounge up the money for half of one in january, but i need to be really fucking frugal so that i can dump $1500 on travel expenses and my sleeve.

i'm probably going to greyhound out to vancouver because it's so much cheaper than the plane, and i don't know, i didn't mind the ride out to saskatoon. i might even take a morning trip just so i can be awake and with the sun up through the rockies. i haven't seen them in so long.

look, this even kind of doubled as a real entry.
