well, i'm back in school.
it's kicking my ass because i still haven't gotten on a regular sleep schedule.
some nights i'm still up til 3am and then have to drag myself outta bed at 6:30 or so to get ready and head out the door by 7:30ish.

i'm not ready for summer to be over. this summer was not at all what i expected. i need more time to adjust to some things.

i don't feel like writing right now, i just wanted to let you guys know that i'm alive and well.

make it stop.

i have come to the conclusion that celebrities and the internet kind of disgust me these days. people are WAY too obsessed with celebrities! i used to enjoy reading the posts on "oh no they didn't", but it is just way too ridiculous for me anymore. every little thing they do is scrutinized, even shit that is completely unimportant, like a celeb NOT buying a certain brand of clothes because they want to save a few dollars, or where so and so ate lunch. it's just fucking stupid. and then the celebrities themselves have completely gotten out of hand. everyone twitters, blogs, myspaces, facebooks, whatever. how can you bitch about not having privacy if you put it all out there? how can you bitch about the paparazzi if you're ALWAYS out and about, at clubs, shopping, whatever? i mean, in a way, it's nice that some stars are making themselves more 'accessible' by interacting with fans and crap, but it's just gone too far, i think. we do NOT need to know every little detail of these people's lives! the constant barrage of media is absurd. i would hate to wake up every day to a swarm of paparazzi outside of my house, to not be able to take a walk without having my picture taken 100 times and people bitching about my hair, outfit, and every word that comes out of my mouth. everywhere you turn, there is a new 'scandal', and most of the time, it's over completely inane shit. and don't get me started on all the 'celebrity feuds'. so fucking stupid. ugh. i watched some of the mtv movie awards the other night, for the first time in i don't even know how many years... i just couldn't believe how fake and completely void of any sort of actual... function it served. it was so disconnected, i could hardly even follow what the fuck was going on. it makes me kind of sad to think that this is the world we live in. the economy is shit, people are losing jobs and struggling to get by, but magazines can pay millions of dollars for the first 'exclusive' pictures of someone's baby. actors and actresses get paid fucking 10 MILLION or more to make a fucking movie. that's like, what, 3 months of work, for more than some people probably earn IN THEIR LIFETIMES. it's sickening. when did the brains of the masses get so screwed up that our priorities ended up here?

do we really need to know/see pictures of ______ walking down the street? taking out the trash? going to starbucks? fuck no.

i could go on forever about this... but i'll stop here. seriously, i just want to know why society has gotten so out of control with celebrity obsession in the past couple of years.

only a few days left...

i really don't mind the energy i get from being on prednisone, but let me tell you, the constant hunger thing is really annoying me! i feel like i need to constantly be munching on something, and there really isn't anything i want to eat in this house. i want some wheat thins. don't have any. i also want some popcorn, but that's really not a good idea with my guts right now. god, i would love a huge bowl of air-popped popcorn drenched in melted butter. my face hasn't started to get puffy yet... but i'm sure it will soon enough...


in the middle of last week i took all of my clothes out of my closet and dresser and sorted through everything. i took an egg crate full of stuff to the consignment shop we have in town, and apparently i'll get back 60% of whatever they sell, so that's cool. i had a lot of nice jeans that were barely worn that i just couldn't wear anymore, so i hope i can make some money back from them. it felt good to get rid of all of that stuff, though. then of course, i had the dilemma of putting everything away again. i finally did it today, though. and that felt good, too. from this point, moving back to normal in a month will be easy. i'd say about 80% of my stuff is still in boxes anyways, and everything else is mostly my clothes, which i won't repack anyways, because i can just hang them up in my dad's trailer, plus a couple of boxes worth of stuff i'll have to pack. it'll be unpacking once i move in that'll be a bitch, because i'll actually have to get everything out of the boxes.


i feel good about the tests i had last week. i got an A- on my math test, i'm sure i got an A on my a&p test, and i feel like i probably pulled off an A on my chem test as well. so now i just have my finals. i can't really find the motivation to study for them, but i know i need to. i think the math test will be alright... the a&p test will be long, because it's all writing about the various body systems and there's just a lot of shit to regurgitate... and the chem test, well, i don't know. i really need to study for it, but 10 chapters worth of stuff? holy cow. it's going to be a scantron test (all multiple choice), which could be potentially really good or bad. if i can get an 85 on it, i'll have an A guarenteed for the semester. dang, that would make me happy. i don't have classes tomorrow, so maybe i'll focus all of my steroidal energy on re-reading my notes and shit.

i have a final at 12 on tuesday, and 7:45 wednesday and thursday. ugh. i hate early finals, but i always seem to wind up with most of mine being that way. but, after that... i'm done with lakeland, and this time, for real.

gotta keep the positive vibes flowing. only a few more days of pounding my head full of information.

it's such a sunday.

man, i hate not being able to use my computer. i got it to work for about a half hour or so today, then the adapter died again. i need to just give in and spend the money to replace it. i just don't want to have to put almost $100 on a credit card. i'm never going to pay off my damn credit cards. but, i'm not left with much of a choice right now.

as far as my midterms have gone, so far, so good. i got an A+ on my a&p midterm (flexes muscles) and an A- on my chem midterm. i have my math midterm on monday and even though i've been struggling with the last two things we learned, i think i'll manage to do alright. monday i also have my a&p practical, which is an identification test over the models of the brain, spinal cord, and eye. i'm pretty sure i'll ace it as well, because i've done well on all of the practice tests we've done. so, hooray for kicking ass at school! i honestly don't think i've ever put as much consistant time and effort into studying and keeping up with all of my work. i've had several days where by early evening i have been absolutely exhausted and my brain has been numb from reading, writing, and processing information. i just have to keep reminding myself it will all be worth it. though, the sense of accomplishment is pretty great, too.

as far as the health shit goes, nothing has gotten worse, thankfully. but i don't know that the antibiotics have caused much improvement. i go to the doctor on wednesday to discuss what's next. i don't really want to speculate on it too much right now, because i'm trying to stay positive about everything. i just hope everything goes alright.

i don't even know what else to write about now. i just got done reading through about 20 pages (at 20 entries per page) of my f-list to get caught up from when i was last logged on here. ugh. too much f-list and not near enough of it was worthwhile. i need to take some communities off of my f-list, because having every entry show up is just taking up waaay too much space. this is a pointless paragraph.

assuming everything goes as planned, chase and i will be going on vacation in three weeks. i'm so excited. it's so soo sooo needed and it's going to be great!
