Title: Everyday Accomplishments
Post by: Kpyna on February 24, 2015, 00:35
Simple: Post something simple or small you accomplished today, but you're still proud of.

Today I spotted the stray cat that's been hanging around my campus that nobody has been able to bring to animal control. I sat down and got it close, and gained its trust. After calling Public Safety, and them telling me to call Animal Control, and then Animal Control being closed for the night, some people who lived nearby stopped and saw me with the cat, and then volunteered their apartment to keep the cat until the morning. I was like, alright, but when one of them tried to catch the cat, it ran away. I coaxed the cat back over, pet it for a bit, and then snagged it and brought it into their house. People have been trying to catch this cat for weeks with no avail, and I finally did. And good thing too, temperatures are supposed to get negative again tonight.

 I finally decided on doing something interesting, fun and engaging for my Key Skills presentation. I'm probably going to spend a little money but you only have one shot and this has to count.

 It's nice to see a sustainable thread after the last was locked.

i managed to shower despite my chest looking absolutely nasty post-surgery (y)
as gross as it is, ive been avoiding showering or going shirtless until its healed up a lot more. its bruised and scabby and swollen in some places as youd expect, and #tmi my right nip is ONE big scab. its so gross. but i set aside my weak stomach for a shower and got off most of the gross sticky stuff left over from the bandages without causing myself TOO much pain afterwards.

before that i woke up before 5pm.

if I can save up, get driving / a car sorted and then get offered a promotion elsewhere I could viably live on my own. Man that would be swell. So yeah, my everyday accomplishment is being sensible and thinking of the future / myself.

After the first two weeks of our job, we moved to a new site, a bit out of the way compared to the easy of the first site which was a ten minute walk from my house, but I'm OK with that.  On Monday, to no-one who knows me's suprise, I got lost getting to work building, and after, I was lost again and spent about I don't know, 30 minutes to 40 walking in a giant circle.

HOWEVER, now after a bus journey I can get to and back from the work site in about 10 minutes.  Yes!

Well, that moment when your life picks up and you are trying to take college level courses in the 10th grade to finish your required 3 years of History in 2. Yeah, I have to pretty much be accepted into Stark State (College my HS is partnered with) and pass compass tests in order to do this.

Also, went bowling last night and got a 177, which is my highest ever, plus i'm picking up 10, 6, and 9 pins a lot easier than I used to.

Lastly, I got a part in our senior directed one acts! ^^

Well, I think, for the first time in so many years, my depression might be on its way out properly. I'm doing extremely well with my job (to the point that at my early 6 months appraisal my boss pretty much told me I'm too good for my job and I'm a fantastic role model and have an extremely bright future ahead of me which I kinda needed?), I'm getting my social life somewhat back to how it used to be, I'm working towards driving and the future, whilst I've still got debts to pay off before I can do anything concrete, looks so much more promising.

I think I can say I'm happy. This really is a big deal and an accomplishment to me. I just hope it's not a temporary phase but moreso the opportunity to really kick on and do something with my life ^^

I'll start by saying I'm afraid of the dark.

I needed to go to the toilet just now and in order to get to it, I had to navigate the downstairs of my house without the lights on (with a full bladder by the way!)

I went from the dining room to the kitchen to the hallway to the bathroom, the only light that was on through all of that was the one in the dining room.

If you're wondering why I didn't just turn the lights on as I went through the rooms, the hallway light is on the other end of the room.

It was a little freaky for me to have to go through all that!

I walked to uni and back, did my washing, the dishes, hung up the washing, went to the gym, did NOT buy donuts (!), made a week's worth of turkey lasagne (which I may have eaten 1/4 of, and it was amazing), got Inquisition working on my laptop, sorted out my trip home with the father, filled out a job application and tidied the living room because I lost a wedding invitation.

I think that's totally spot on! Although I've never been a fan of One Direction it's the conclusion of something that a lot of teenage girls loved, and just because they're teenage girls doesn't invalidate their feelings on the matter. And I would probably give just about anything for Jeremy Clarkson to come back, because let's face it, the show can't really go on without him as well as James May and whoever else is falling out of the show atm

Hang on let me think of an accomplishment...

Yesterday I was hanging out on the railroad tracks by my school and I spontaneously made a new friend and we really hit it off. Considering I don't like 80% of the people I've met at this school, that's a pretty good accomplishment.

O- can be given to anyone. The beauty of it is that your blood cells have no antigens on their surface, so they can be given to anyone, and their white blood cells won't attack it. I have O+ blood and can receive O+ or O-, but nothing else otherwise I'll attack it.

 My lecturer marked my maths paper and I had 88%. I didn't solve two problems and I forgot to place a decimal point in one of my answers... either way, it would be a pass in the exam!

 Then my Religious Studies research gained me an A which was nice since I openly expressed my concerns about me not taking the task seriously as I found it to be incredibly dull.

 Photography is going incredibly well and I had almost finished my first sketchbook but then I ran out of credit. My photography is fairly on point and my theme is running consistently. My exam question is "Untraditional Portraiture" and the fact that I'm portraying my portraits as if they were ink-blot tests nails the "untraditional" aspect on the head.

 Sociology is going moderately well and I'm sitting last year's methods paper in May. I should ace this paper since methods is one of the few things I've revised thoroughly. I'm fairly certain that our case study used qualitative methods so I know what to revise and prepare.

 I should be able to get a wall of B grades this year and I'm honestly happy with how I've progressed. It's just a matter of keeping my work up to standard and revising.

This is magnetic interference. On the Nintendo DS, sleep mode is activated using small magnets in the speakers. If you get a weak magnet of the reverse polarity of the magnet in the speaker and then run it across the speaker it'll put the DS in sleep mode. By the sounds of it there I would guess that you have some kind of magnetic clasp case on your iPad or something triggering this magnet and putting your DS into sleep mode. You can probably use your iPad to work out whereabouts the magnetic interference is coming from by using a compass app or a dedicated magnetic interference app.

Went to Sci-fi on the Rock today (a convention near where I live) and only got mildly dizzy, so that's good. I bought some mini pokemon figures, including a Giratina. It looks kinda awful though, it was not painted well, but I should be able to re-paint it. The other ones I bought were an Absol, a Shinx, and a Gengar. All of them, except for the Gengar, need to be touched up a bit, but the Giratina was by far the worst. May buy a few more tomorrow, they were pretty cheap and little projects like that are fun.

During the dress rehearsal for a dance show, two of the dances I'm in (the only two, actually) are only three dances apart, so we need a quick change. It wouldn't be so bad, I mean, I've done quick changes with only one dance in between, except:
1. there is no quick change room this year, so we have to change back stage where anyone can see us.
2. the costume has a wig.
3. the wig is short and difficult to put on even if you have had experience with wigs.
4. the only ones with any experience with wigs before are me and one of my friends; everyone else thought you could just pin your hair up and put it on without any pins to hold it in place.
5. there is no mirror back stage.
6. I suck at helping people with wigs.

All of this was do to poor planning by the director (except the fact that almost no one there knew how to put a wig on properly and that I suck at helping people, of course). So when the inevitable happened and they either look awful or fell off, the director got mad at us for not doing a good enough job putting them on.

The accomplishment here was that I didn't jump off the stage, run up to where she was sitting, and claw her eyes out.

If you've already got an offer it's very difficult for them to pull out if you don't the grades (unless it's one of the elite Unis), it helps I needed BBB to get in and only got BCD so ^^;

If you're doing the course you want to at A Level / College then the main thing would be showing your talent in that field too =]

 Awh, I need a BBB for my local university too ^.^

 I want to do Psychology but the closest thing I'm studying is Sociology but I've already attended an applicant day so I'm hoping that will lean in my favour.

I have no idea if that helps, I didn't go to any applicant days, only a few Unis during my school days / 6th Form days

Psychology seems really interesting so best of luck with that! \o/

say you don't enjoy it anymore so you're transferring to another course instead? Or just tell them straight up if you think they won't go too mad.

good lord i only have 2 days of lessons left at my school forever


tbh i think it's an achievement that i haven't kicked off in a lesson and shouted back at a teacher in these 5 years bc yes i have come pretty close and yes i have cried multiple times but at least i haven't ever *caused a scene* with my feelings because we all know that when you think teachers are wrong you just need to sit there and let them shout that you're all pathetic just like good little girls do!!!!


ok so maybe i regret never yelling back when my teachers lost it.

Pretty much tell your parents you don't feel confident in your abilities in Geography and you'd feel more comfortable doing video game design instead. If it's what you really want to do then they should be supportive of it ^^;

 I have done so much photography today, it's unreal. I even did more of these "pictogram" style images but my best one came out crap because I threw it in the heater rather than drying it out slowly lol.

 On the plus side, I've got about 20 - 30 images to stick into my sketchbook (not including annotation) and a lot of that is experimentation. I'll also probably research Man Ray since I'm hoping to do actual pictograms during my exam.

 Like, photography is something I'm good at because I'm fairly unhinged. The exam seemed scary on Monday because I did not have what I needed but now I do.

 I'll probably base my project on femininity and how women face inequalities in modern society.

 I had to choose my university choices today so I picked one requesting 300 points and one requesting 200 points. I feel sick and I'm not sure if I made the right decision since the other universities actually interacted with me a lot more and one of my favourite ones sent me loads of freebies but I turned them down.

 I decided to go for Psychology at Swansea Uni then Counselling Studies & Psychology at UWTSD. I figured that if I couldn't get into the university that I really want to get into, at least I'll be happy working towards becoming a counsellor... which always was one of the main goals I set for myself when I decided to apply for psychology.

 On the plus side, I can proceed to get a masters degree after either of the courses.

That's not to say that I'm not going to keep doing it as a hobby and maybe earn a few Simoleons on the side, but I'm not going to study it any more.

 I hate revising for these AS resits because I'm still confident that I know everything and revising is just touching up on things.

 Like, this exam is likely to be on ethnicity, masculinity and diversity.

 Masculinity has Butler, Oakley, Connell and someone who has a name similar to Hordor. You have primary socialisation which genders the kid and then you have secondary socialisation which reinforces the blighter. The hidden curriculum is something that I can probably throw in.

 Diversity is literally just Berthoud and Elliot talking about how different cultures bring their norms and values with them when immigrating to Britain so different ethnicities are more likely to have different family types.

 I feel like a scrub for thinking it's going to easy but the qualitative methodology is easy pips.

 The pressure comes from me having to nail this exam to have any hopes of getting a decent mark in my A2 exams.

 Failed my sociology question today lol.

 The pre-release was on families and a touch of ethnicity. There was no mention of religion so I didn't revise religion...

 It came up in the exam and I would lovingly tear out the entire exam board's kneecaps and force them to crawl along the Great Wall of China.

 That's like having a paper on modern day feminism and it gives you a question specifically on Emmeline Pankhurst's childhood.

 Truthfully, remembering the Sanskrit/Pali is like second nature, so is remembering philosophers and their arguments.

 I would love to go to Thailand and spend time at one of their monasteries. I would love to go to some of the British Buddhist monasteries too... I'll probably spend a few days at one within the next three years tbh.

Today's small accomplishment: Drove to the gas station and back safely. I say that because I'm technically not supposed to drive for another 5 weeks after my hip surgery due to the increased risk of having a broken bone especially if even a fender-bender occurred. (bone was drilled into to clear out dead bone, and injected with medical cement to reinforce it when dried)

i havent had a panic attack in almost 2 weeks when i used to have one every single day (maybe more than once) and i was able to go into town and i messed up a lot like i forgot my name at starbucks and didnt freak out and have to leave the store and held a conversation with an employee at lush without almost passing out from stress.

god i feel like a person for the first time in years lol. im kind of worried because i really dont know who i am without being completely neurotic and stressed out and thats really messing w my sense of identity but i guess ill get used to that? its just nice to be able to function on even the most basic of levels, ive been so scared to do anything for so long. this post is kinda dumb ill probably clear it later im just pumped rn lol.

Theory isn't related to Uni, in the UK you've got to pass a driving theory and the practical test to get a full license. The theory revolves around the Highway Code (legislation on the road, what each sign means, what the road markings mean, safest way to be on the road, all that stuff) and a Hazard Perception element (pointing out hazards before they actually cause you to slow down or make an adjustment in position)

the only thing related to Uni I can think of is a test to earn a place at a Uni but I don't believe they're that common

This. I eat a lot of imitation meat, not as a meat replacement, but because I genuinely like it. I'll eat Quorn sausages as a snack, I love them :B
I'm too weak to come off meat altogether though, especially as I'm dairy intolerant and can't digest fats it's sometimes hard to find anything to eat while I'm out. I have a lot of respect to people who can go total vegan and live like that.

I've booked myself some time in the undergrad labs at uni to prepare my Araneae taxonomic collection. Took a while for the lab tech to get back to me but I'm sorted now, with a microscope to take photos, ethanol and everything. Whooo.

It's essentially common sense on the road. If you fail it more than twice you shouldn't really be on the road.

Hazard perception's a pain though, you've got to keep one eye looking in one direction and the other dead ahead.

I'd say the theory element is actually harder than the hazard perception one because if you're doing the right observations and checking as far ahead as possible then you should be all good. It's planning ahead of what you're going to do on the road

The theory there are bits here and there that can catch you out, but there is a lot of common sense to it. Just got to nail the road markings and signs really.

well a bad man like meaning badass so let's suspect he's absolutely roided and ripped and hairy and then he puts a dress on and it probably tears up and looks hella ratchet. thats the impression i got.

Exactly this haha.

please explain what you mean by looking "unfeminine" and "looking like a bad trans man in a dress." if you could kindly

Well if you think Ru Paul then that's not what I mean bc those guys are super sexy in what they wear and a lot better than me at fashion.

Whether you agree with society's perspective on what "femanine" is or not that doesn't change it's definition. Small dresses are made to fit women with no musculature and match up with small feet in small shoes and ott make-up. So when one tries to fit a dress with muscular arms and shoulders and shoes with wide, un-crumpled feet it can be very difficult.

cant help but feel thats still a bit transmisogynistic 😰

Only if that's the way you choose to take it. Plus I didn't mean transgender I meant transvestite hence "trans man" meaning "transvestite who identifies as a man".

that wasn't my first thought entirely although i'd like to know why you jumped to that conclusion.

also lmao do you think they just popped out the womb looking fabulous? i mean thats what they'd like you to think but the people on ru pauls put a lot of effort into not only fighting against a "taboo" identity but figuring out what works best for them and using what they got and being very gung-ho and honest with themselves

become a fab sensation with these two weird tips from a puk user named beth. "play to your strengths" "its not what you wear its how you wear it". drag act consultants hate her!!!

you're being very vague here for some reason. none of that actually tells me what YOU think femininity is.


pardon me for being personal here but, can i skip a lot of what im trying to get at and ask if you're androgynous lookin and also Not Happy with it?

a transman is a female-to-male trans person. this is already an established term and "trans man" definitely didn't ever equal "transvestite man" in any lexiconography i know of. its not even a matter of semantics. are you telling me you didn't even think to google it at any point at all?

if you are awkwardly covering up for having meant "transwoman" i.e a male-to-female trans person then this is some really bad backpedalling which is just making you look worse and you can maybe stop while you're ahead behind and try to maybe do it a bit less in future.

i dont mean to leap on anyone because it is a confusing topic for people but i should just back up the fact that transvestite =/= transgender, drag =/= transgender, and covering up awkward comments with more transmisogyny isnt the way to go.

and yes, thats how i took it because thats how it was delivered. intent =/= effect. it doesnt matter how you meant it, your delivery was uncomfortable and a defence was delivered that was also uncomfortable.

making "man in a dress" tropes is transmisogynistic because of the violence towards non-passing trans women, who are usually regarded as a "man in a dress" be it because they dont pass at all or are outed and pass a little too well. implying you look like a man in a dress isnt necessarily a drag joke, its a transmisogynistic microaggression. i wont hold you to it because its not as if these things are constantly a topic of conversation, but you really need to be aware that joking about a masculine appearance in a feminine outfit being undesirable or ridiculous is... transmisogynistic.

its not a matter of "sorry if you were offended" here, its a matter of "sorry i didnt know that was wrong to say and ill try my best not to be so callous in future".

The only place public transport service will be awful is out in the sticks, just like anywhere else! I live in the north of Scotland and I can get to most places in the UK by bus or train, it takes around 4~ hours to get to any major Scottish city and at least 12 to London lmao (would not recommend that bus journey #rip). Local public transport is pretty good here, obviously when you're going away from bigger towns and villages it isn't as frequent. A lot of tourists that come in on cruise liners use the public transport here instead of the coach hires lol. 
I doubt you'd be coming up this far anyway but if you're travelling round major UK cities then it won't be a problem!

You're intended to start out with the mild chipotle and move up, but I went right for ghost pepper. It was good, but I expected a little more spice, would eat again for sure.

I always told my boss at my coffee shop job sunday mornings were the only time I will not work. She scheduled me for two sundays in a row. My bet is I won't hear back from her, I'll work my saturdays, I won't come in for my sundays, and then we'll see what happens with the schedule next week _/o\_ I'm keeping all in writing so if I magically disappear from the schedule I'll let HR know. Whatever, told her, that's the accomplishment.
Good stuff. I can relate to this. Hopefully there won't be any drama

Right? I really really wanted to tell her "It's not my job to solve your incompetence, sorry, figure it out." It took a lot of drafting for me to work out exactly what to say to her without being too rude.

so far so good though

today i got a response back from my second professor for the study abroad who i was really worried i wouldn't hear from-- she really really loved me as a student, so her recommendation was important. i also did my class schedule for italy, and now i just need to see my advisor and get her to sign off on some stuff... then i just wait for my official news til october B)

I made about $16 in tips tonight at my seafood shack job today! That's pretty good considering we make minimum wage (which sucks but that's any low skill job in NH), and I usually take home like $10 in tips on friday nights. It was also my first totally solo shift, so I'm glad I kept it together well enough to do so well :)

for reference... last wednesday me and my coworker got $1 each in tips.

yesterday me and my friends went swimming by the rope swing and we were gonna use it but there was a whole herd of like 15 high school boys so we were like "nah" and one of the boys ended up swinging off and landing right on another kid's head and the kid definitely had a concussion and he couldn't stand but the stupid teenage boys kept on trying to get him to stand up. they were yelling, "JUST DO IT" like shia lebeouf and one of them was like, "'you can do it if you try there's nothing you can't do' that's what my football coach always says" and i was like "this is the dumbest reaction to a potential spinal injury i've ever heard, keep him in the water and call 911 and his parents, dingus", so they did that instead of trying to hoist this 200 pound injured kid out of the water and onto his feet. he eventually had to get taken out on a stretcher

me and my friends were talking about how stupid they were and how much they could have hurt their friend if something was wrong and one of the medics turned around and said we did very good by keeping him in the water and i was like :^)

 I've managed to tear through the first season of American Horror Story, although the ending seemed like it was going to be more complex but was simplified at the last minute, it was an enjoyable season. The second season seems to be good and that bloke from Heroes was funny in the first so high hopes for him in the second.

 Also, a professor from the psychology course called me today and even though the call started with "it's nothing bad" it ended in me being told that I wouldn't have been able to go if I didn't get my maths GCSE which is a contrast and I don't feel fully trusted because of my working class background and the fact that I had awful mock results and I did well in my exams.

It's honestly not much since we couldn't go to get absinthe since one of the girls was upset and went home with 60% of the group. Also, it's started raining just as I got home so I was lucky.

today i finished my financial requirements for study abroad. i was pretty scared that my parents would tell me everything was too expensive but it really did turn out to be like 3 - 4k more than my regular tuition to do it in italy, and that's including costs for me to visit other countries on some of the weekends (because i did my schedule so every week is a 3 day weekend :p) so they're really excited for me. which is awesome! the study abroad advisor said that really i'm practically accepted at this point because he said usually the problems are with the disciplinary records, which mine came back clean enough. :D

All the pokemon available prior to Viola excluding starters in pokedex order are: Bunnelby, Zigzagoon, Fletchling, Pidgey, Scatterbug, Caterpie, Weedle, Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, Pikachu, Bidoof, Dunsparce, Azurill, Burmy, Litleo, Psyduck, Farfetch'd and Riolu. Thats a total of 19 pokemon.

Safe to say it took a while, but it was worth the challenge!  ;D

 I went to the gym this morning, expecting to be starting from scratch with everything but I found myself increasing the weight on all my lifts by 5kg! It's not much but I'm happy. Curls are still pretty crap but I do sets until failure anyway.

 The only downside comes from my gammy back tbh since it's a little sore after doing my OHPs but I'm hoping that it was an issue with form. It's also partly the reason behind me skipping squats today since I didn't want to potentially cripple myself.

I once beat the rock type gym in Pokemon emerald using a level 7 silcoon (or cascoon) that only knew harden. How? Simple. I used my torchic, Took out the first Pokemon then burned the last Pokemon (nosepass) it knocked out torchic, so I had to use that Pokemon and just keep using harden until it fainted or it knocked me out. I eventually won with only 7 HP left. It mostly just used tackle.

did about 1k words in writing after a dry spell, as well as about 400-700 words of a profile that's about 1/4 finished. have also to heavily format it whilst i'm doing it. finished basics and personality, need to do appearence, history (including general timeline to coincide with the WoW timeline - its pretty much literally an essay) and some other stuff, and generally try to bump it to an extensie amount of words (like 5000 or something) /just/ to one-up all of the other profiles on that particular forum.

then there's an ability list, an equipment list, probably something for her residence (She's a lady) and... so much more. ive made a lot of work for myself but this has literally no real deadline, so its great.

Latias sings Yes Sir, I Can Boogie, and all the characters dance and have a big disco/party. Mudkip gets crowd-surfed, Skarmory attempts to as well, but everyone gets out of his way (I personally wouldn't want a 111lb metal bird jumping on me!) and accidently lands on and presumably crushes a Caterpie.

Finally got something for my tooth today!! I had my temp crown fitted last week but I've got my next app at home next week. Been in constant pain since then and obviously it's not feasible to travel 8+ hours round trip to my home dentist lmao
Went into a dentist along from me on the off chance and she was like 'yeah it's a £95 deposit plus whatever the dentist decides for treatment' obv I was like 'no thanks pal'. I have to pay for my own dentist but I'm getting two appointments out of that and the making/fitting of the crown for like 20 pound more so yeah She gave me a number for an emergency clinic and I went today. Was out within in an hour with some antibiotics. Have to take them for 5 days so hopefully it clears it up a little until next week. The dentist here reckoned the tooth couldn't be saved though which is promising! but who knows
basically I got everything for free instead of paying £95+, thank you nhs!!

Wow! Congrats, that's awesome. I squint a little bit on one side when I smile but I don't really care about it. I totally feel your excitement though because I'm having an appointment with a dermatologist and he's going to see if I can get botox injections into my hands covered under my insurance since with me having eczema now I can't use topical treatments for hyperhidrosis, and they just destroy my hands anyway. So basically if I got this shot I'd be sweat-free for a year and I get really emotional just thinking that I might not have to deal with fearing shaking people's hands or holding them.

I think Botox is another treatment I could have got but it only lasts 3-6 months in the eye and having an injection there freaks me out a little. I'd much rather just get knocked out and not have to deal with anything like that lol. So does it just paralyse the sweat glands in your hands? It sounds really sore but like you say it's going to be worth it in the end.

I just moisturise the hell out of mine. When I'm on steroids for my asthma my skin clears right up but after 25 years of occasional use the steriods have caused some problems for my body. For instance the muscles etc in my shoulder are now too big for the joint they're in so I'm in pain quite a bit although my visits to the chiropractor have helped. Doctors stopped giving me steroid cream years ago.

^well, hyperhidrosis is a condition with excess sweating on my hands so my hands are always wet or moist. I talked to my doctor and she thinks the moisture from hyperhidrosis is causing eczema so if I take care of the sweating the eczema will go away

Anyway, on a different note I met a guy I really like at a party on Saturday. I mean I'm going to Italy so I can't really try to date him or anything but he is super cool so I can't wait for it to be Tuesday so I can send him a text

Worried about getting an iv, don't think they're going to find any places left on my hands or arms to stick one in that aren't covered in lil scars in lol

I'm halfway through an essay due for Friday as well, only written about 2/5 things and already at 1000 words so hopefully it won't take too long to power through and trim it down. Just have a 1000 word lit review to do as well and then I am officially done for Christmas!!!

I don't have an exact date for my operation yet, all I know is that they're going to do it in January at some point.

I wouldn't worry too much about being put to sleep, I've had operations a few times before. The worst thing that happens is when you wake up, you get a blinding headache and the room feels like its spinning around.

^ yeah, don't worry about going under. I had to when I had my tonsils out. They're gonna put the IV in you and you're not gonna feel much but afterwards you'll notice how high out of your mind you were. I started talking to my mom about how all drugs should be legalized before my operation. That's how loopy you get. I don't remember much besides getting wheeled into the operation room and staring at the light above me. Next thing I know I'm leaving the operating room and the nurse is asking me if I want a popsicle. Then I just kinda chilled and ate my popsicle for 30 minutes and left.

I hope I don't get points docked off because the only reason it didn't take so long is I didn't stutter, say um, or pause at any point during my role play where a lot of people's nervousness slowed them down and got them closer to 5 minutes.

 Only went and finished GTA V's main story! Totally forgot how overrated it was but, damn, it's a fun game. It's a weight off my chest since I wanted to finish one last PS3 game before I made the upgrade to PS4 and it was either GTA or Dark Souls 2.

 Never completed a Dark Souls game since I always find that they're either really stressful or too much of a chore. The whole "ur gnna die lots" thing gets quite tiresome when you're dying because of poor level designs rather than because you tried fisting some giant's mouth whilst wearing nothing but a nappy. DS1 was really good though although DS2 felt like a punch in the gooch.

 Idk.

 Feeling confident about tomorrow's exam tbh. The past paper looks okay and the large questions are just "explain this test" but I'm really hoping that I get something on ethics or research methods.

 The only problem is that I'm a little ropey with my tests and I'm not sure how to reference them with APA... so I'll have a look through my textbook before going to sleep.

 Hopefully the calculators are for finding out the mean.

 Edit - Calculators are for mean and something else (that I can't remember) and I think APA referencing is literally stuff like M = 34.46.

 Actually pretty confident.

Abnormal/Individual Psychology went pretty well even though I tumbled the two large written questions at the end but I'm hoping that I briefly covered everything.

 This Cognition exam on Monday should be good since it's a little in the biological field and I've always enjoyed biology. Going to finish the perception revision in the morning before smashing through the memory revision in the afternoon/evening.

 I'm also slowly grinding through the SMGs on Black Ops 3. It's about two days per gun for me so I'm hoping to finish the second SMG tomorrow and start the third after my last exam.

And I said "because I wanted a new bag" and she said "fair enough, it's lovely" when usually she would have scolded me for spending. Money on stuff I don't need and then given me an entire lecture about how important it is to have money and not spend it. But he didn't. I love her.

One thing I find hard to take in is the fact that bowser is sometimes called "bowser Koopa" but back then, he was known as "king Koopa"

london in a nutshell lmao


generally its better to not try rich or really busy areas for money raising etc - my suggestions would be kind of squareish areas where people come from all directions and the roads are the kind that are trafficless so people walk on the middle of them - leicester square as an example or even shopping districts eg kingston might be a good idea as people in those places generally don't have anywhere urgent to be

 Ayyyy congrats Shrubfam!

 Made a gymbro today! It was a one-off but definite friend material. Hopefully we'll go out and get hammered soon because he was on about going on the pull. Really hoping to have 2 or 3 pitchers in Spoons this time and actually spend my grant like a student for once before I push it into driving lessons so I can get a job in a warehouse over the summer or something, provided that I can't get a psychology-related placement.

 Would love to volunteer for the RSPCA or something and just play with dogs all day but I'll probably be stuck cleaning up poo or something boring like that. It's really not an issue since I have three dogs but it's not exactly fun when you just want to play with dogs.

 Speaking of jobs! I got a volunteer placement sorted (sorta) to help get my silver employability award. The lady said she'll call me to sort something out but I can't remember when she's calling me.

 Also, I'm down from 17.9 stone to 17.4 which is pretty ruddy smashing considering that I thought my diet was too radical. I think a lot of the weight was baby fat or something since it seemed to vanish over a few days.

 Not being funny, but if you're going to deliver to a house on the wrong street to meet your estimated delivery time, you deserve a bollocking tbh.

 It's like finishing a written report for your English Lit lecturer at uni but handing it in to an Engineering lecturer because he's closer and you'll hand it in on time.

I've successfully animated two scene for yes sir, I will boogie alone. One where two goons attack Nidorina, they hit her, she pulls a carpet out from under their feet making them fall over ("say hello to my two friends! Mr gravity and Mr concrete!") They try to attack her again, but Nidorina grabs them and chucks them out.

The next night, they try again (they have axes this time!) They find a NIdoking inside that towers over them. It asks if they are the ones who have been attacking Nidorina. One of them says no, and asks if he has a sausage roll. The NIdoking replies "yes! I have one! How about I ram it down your throat?!" (Sophisticated, well-hidden dirty joke there!) It yanks the axe out of his hands and snaps it in two. The other guy drops his axe and runs away.

The NIdoking is Nidorina's cousin, who she wrote to for help.

 Volunteering was pretty fun and we cleaned everything out so I started tagging, sizing, and hanging everything then I was like "whoa, I don't think she said to do this, I wasn't paying attention" so I just left because I'm awful at sizing women's clothing since one top will be size 16 then the next is just "large" so I'm like wth? I can't size clothing by sight anyway. I had also worked 30 minutes over my shift time.

 Also helping a friend with what seems to be depression? She seems to be going through what I went through yonks ago so it's nice to give some real advice but I just want to hug her and pour puppies over her and hope she's not allergic to dogs.

 Only went and sold two books by myself without any help with the till! It was pretty difficult to get used to using the till but once you set everything down to a pattern it's okay and almost like playing a piano.

 Attending to the till and shop floor is really boring though since your job relies on everyone else when if you're just sorting, tagging, and hanging, you can work as quickly as you want and get on with something else without worrying about a customer catching you on your phone, yawning, or sitting down.

 Tbh, I don't use my phone and I stand when I'm around customers but it's hard not to yawn when you're bored and tired.

I've heard it's almost as good as explorers of sky but I'm only on chapter 7 so I can't say yet.
Thank you!

im the same with codeine, had it a few times before I had proper migraine tablets and it just used to floor me. Saying that after my eye op the only thing that even touched the pain was morphine.

lmao i can't remember the first time i had it, all i remember is being confused at near enough everything.

i've been taking them since like... the summer?? i guess cause the normal doctor remedy for pain (crappy ole ibuprofen and paracetamol) doesn't make a dent in my pain at all. when i first started them, 1 was enough for my every day, 2 for my bad ones - but i'd have awful headaches after 2, that not even sitting in a dark room with sunglasses on could save me lol. now it's like, 1 barely makes a dent, 2 makes me feel weird and achy all over but stops the pain. it's not like i take 4 a day or whatever so idk why i'm becoming immune ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 I had a nightmare about this mind. I had a nap today (well, yesterday) from about 2 - 4/6 whatever and I had a nightmare about this write-up.

 
 I can now sleep after rewriting my entire report and doing my statistics all over again.

yeah, its easy to build a tolerance to codiene so that's what you're experiencing. like, just a little sidenote, there's nothing else they can do for you at all? i feel like the moment you need to get off it is going to be awful. i did percocet for a couple weeks only (prescription ofc) and i did it exactly as i was supposed to and at the end of the two weeks i was shaking and sweating in my bed and i STILL crave percocet years later. idk im really careful about what drugs get prescribed to me as a result.

GEE WHIZ i SUUURE WISH there was a non addictive drug out there that's been proven by multiple reputable scientific journals to be very effective for pain with very few health drawbacks. but you know if such a drug did exist they'd probably say opiates are safer and then wonder where this whole heroin addiction crisis came from LOL

the codiene isn't that bad for me though, i took 30 mg and it made the pain from like moderate-severe to mild, and i took another on my way to class on that tablet's half life because the pain from walking to class was too much and i was kind of messed up for the first hour of class and then things got normal. the worst i've experienced was this morning i wasn't thinking and took one on an empty stomach and i felt kind of nauseous and tired but i still got through class just fine.

idk. i havent thought abt asking about other prescription pain meds bc i was put on codeine. like i had been on it for 2 weeks when i went to get something done at the hospital and the doctor asked what i was on and when i said codeine he was like "ooh we need to get you off of that" and i nearly just went "listen m8 the usual crap doesn't work" but i just sort of shrugged bc idc. if it works, then good. i'm just glad i don't get the horrible med headaches anymore lol

long term opiods are a bit Iffy and doctors will be Funny about them cos a) slippery slope of opiod abuse  and b) ur brain can alter its chemistry (http://www.spine-health.com/blog/how-pain-killers-sometimes-increase-chronic-pain) to more or less fabricate pain that isn't actually there in order to try and Get more. (basically a) but unconsciously)

chronic pain falls into 3ish main categories

1) slipped discs (the bad one and why u dont want a chiro just messin about w/ ur spinal cord cos thats precious machinery back there which science can't do too much about once u broke it proper)
2) nociceptor sensitivity after opiods for s/t
3) not lifting a weight or doing a stretch
3.5) arthritis and other assorted joint problems


i kinda fall into 3.5 cos my knees dont behave but im doing a Lifting to see if its not just me being out of shape and cos of the.......uh.....gut motility slowing effects......of opiods i dont rly like takin them for longer than a couple days

also there is some weird stuff about opiod receptors and autism (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12223079) but thats boring to talk about and only i care about that sorta science stuff rly prolly.

there is also a weird pattern of fibromyalgia popping up after people have had painkillers for a Painful n Traumatic event and went without discontinuation support/therapy  but the science is still evaluating fibro.



anyway pain relief carepost over. my fave pain relief is the dank chronicccccccccccccc  8) (and the odd magnesium/calcium supplement in case i got myself all done up in the muscle tightness)

glad you brought it up because i was in a serious car crash last year as you all were here to witness and they prescribed me vicodin (my parents insisted on no percs) and it didn't work and that was all that worked for me, it is SO abhorrent to me that it's not the first mild to moderate painkiller cause you can just switch on and off with use with no bad effects except "man" and "dude" will be in your vocabulary for a while

im not endorsing using it though getting arrested is really bad don't do that, the wise opinion would be to stick with legal options until more old people come to their senses with that stuff.

i guess in terms of my pain i'm 3.5?? my mum's a 1 with her 3 slipped discs (rip) but my joint hypermobility causes pain. idk how. i'm just too bendy

taking my codeine does make me more easily confused. things don't go in or i just need telling several times for me to finally understand. i understand docs wanting me off it but if nothing else works like... what am i supposed to do?? they've suggested exercise but i walk 5k steps 3 days a week and that normally makes me feel worse the next day :/

idk man i would just love to Not Be In Pain for just a few days cause u know i can't remember the last time i had a "good" day that went without me having to fidget to find a comfortable not painful resting position or dope myself up lmao

 So... all of my Amazon packages came in boxes about 4x the size of the actual things?

 Anyway this Lego stud plate has come! Wanted to build a little Lego house since I was young so I guess it's time to chase my dreams and start building one. It was either a house, a gym, or a little lego D&D thing with monsters and stuff.

 Not sure where I'm going with this at the moment. So far I've got a scientist guy, a guy that was eaten by a plant, an angel, and a little girl (holding snowballs). There's also an little desk with a computer on it and a chair but I don't know where that comes in tbh. I don't know where the little girl comes into things but I like her jumper so I might just harvest her for parts and have a really swanky self insert.


 These knee sleeves also came for my squats and they feel crazy because they're made for lifting and my previous one was made for mobility and support. A box of protein bars came with green tea extract in them so I've got a meal replacement that helps speed up my metabolism whilst having fairly low calories and apparently they taste like After Eights so... it's going to be interesting. I'm taking one for my shift tomorrow.

 I'll probably switch to the powerlifting gym soon since my current gym is nose-diving and has been for a long time.

edit: shrub i forgot u got back to me soz about forgettin

turns out she was like 20 (this is a girl whos not the one i asked out a little while ago) but ye we chatted for a bit n ill see her at gay youth group on friday but probs nothing will come of it which im ok with i don't think i had any real feeling w sky it was just 'oh she's hot ill get her number n see what happens' so yeh its all chill

aww well at least u tried! thats something at least and it always ends up being Stepping Stones to asking the next person out i find. gamification is for total nerds but it does feel like Experience Points i guess? im guessing gay club friday date has come and gone so how did that go anyway????


glad you brought it up because i was in a serious car crash last year as you all were here to witness and they prescribed me vicodin (my parents insisted on no percs) and it didn't work and that was all that worked for me, it is SO abhorrent to me that it's not the first mild to moderate painkiller cause you can just switch on and off with use with no bad effects except "man" and "dude" will be in your vocabulary for a while

oh yeah me too id never encourage anyone on here to do it ofc //takes a monster hit anyway and blows the smoke in everyones faces so they just have to sit there grooving on it//

but i really wish drug policy makers didn't get a fly in their butt about Minorities a bunch of years ago. sigh. but what with california and colorado stuff, who knows? sanders says he'll make it legal if he gets in. the rest of the world usually p much follows the US in that kind of stuff so hopefully the uk will see sense in time and people will get a bit more Sensible about it. (probably not, they fired an expert neurologist a bunch of years ago here for going 'the reasarch literally says MDMA isn't as bad as we think' and im still not over it). me i wish i was born in spain where its legal to have 2-3 plants for ur own use.

i mean im not one of those sorts who is all "IT CURES EVERYTHING ITS THE WONDER HERB" like the rly bad stoners but god the number of things it does better than meds in some cases and the way it just makes you OK with stuff for a bit and it does it better than the research CBNs and all.


ANYWAY its good to know ur down with the good herb tho, all the best ppl are  O0

i suspected as much. this is also for any other bodyspazzed folks but i am sort of a 3.5) here too and, well, IANAD so u can take or leave this w a grain or salt, but im p much just gonna share what ive learned in my own adventures of me .vs. my own body as Shortcuts so you dont have to waste 2-3 years having to find them out for urself like i did.

idk much about the entire etiology of the thing but given u were talkin earlier bout vaguely dysautonomic symptoms (headrushes, fainting type stuff when getting up) idk if you have salt cravings and feel Thirsty a lot but there might be autonomic system screwery going on. to see if u got a bit of dysautonomia you'll have to have a tilt table test, its not a Perfect Test and it'll point more towards a Collective Symptom rather than a diagnosis of a particular thing, altho its Good to Know. if you feel you have Waterworks Control/Trouble issues, that also is a Thing That Happens With This and a way understated thing that happens to a lot more people then you'd think. (the process is a lot more complicated than people give it credit for and we take a lot of biological stuff for granted) if ur all dumb and Embarassed about it you can tell the docs about p much anything cos they've deffo heard way worse (http://flowingdata.com/2016/02/16/million-to-one-shot-doc/). if nothing else there are a billion and one ways of attempting to treat/cope w/ it

if ur a bit fidgety nervous and tending to picking @ urself or causing urself a bit of damage and ur lips/inside of mouth are tattered then ymmv but if you may or may not want to find a silicone bitey thing/fiddly toy thing may help with the teeth clenching/urge to fidget constantly. its why you'll find a lot of the body/braintrouble people smoke! it occupies the mouth, occupies the hands and takes away the anxiety solidly. i cant do it cos Asthma but thats prolly good. i knit/spin which keeps my hands occupied when im not going "ouch my shoulders less spinning today i think". (havin a bit of a dodgy body is also about learning ur limits a lot and Respecting them)

ANYWAY.

1. again, reiterating that IANAD but if you're taking co-codamol the paracetmol aint great for your liver either in the long term and the opiod in it, uh....well....//points to butt//....you know. slowing stuff down there aint good for ur gut health. possibility of gettin IBS and all that. you might want to look into moving onto naproxen, esp if you get swelling/inflammation. probably with omeprazole or w/e (you may already be on it or on ranitidine if you have acid tummy issues). you can also try gabapentin if poss, gabapentin is good if you present with neuropathic pain and Anxiety. some SSRIs and SNRIs can help with as well, it all depends. there should be some sorta vaguely patronising Pain Management thing you can be referred to if poss. but there are other painkillers out there, its just co-codamol is the Easiest and usually shuts everyone up until they start to realise you might accidentally go down the slippery slope.


2. as a fellow schrodingers-cripple if you aint already, seek some Joint Braces. they wont solve it but they'll make it a LOT easier. cripplepunk is kind of lowkey In Fashion anyway atm in case ur feeling self conscious about the idea (im not).

as an interim, one of those Powerball spinny things is good for the elbow joints too cos the elbow joint can get a bit Stiff with us nerd sorts always bein at the computer.

anyway, knee braces are the only things gettin me about on Bad Days atm, they kind of restrict the movement a bit but kind of support it and are good at stoppin the accidental hyperextension. they also stop u sitting on ur knees/crossing ur legs like i do unconcsiously sometimes to stop the general Awkward Legs stuff. (magnesium/calcium supplements can POSSIBLY help with restless leg, you can find them in boots)

idk if Money Is An Object but shy away from the absolute bottom end of the market, maybe mid-tier braces if poss. anyone who has to wear braces a lot will know what i mean when i talk about that weird Neoprene Funk Smell you get. avoid nylon, try to go for neoprene. wool would be great but its Expensive cos manufacturers love profits. if you get neoprene ones make sure you wash them when they start to get that Funk smell, it helps to have two or three braces for each Trouble Joint so you got a spare when one pair is drying from a Wash.

3. ymmv but given the muscles are a bit crap and untrained and spangly you just end up being a bit Out Of Shape. sports are just a nightmare cos you have no co-ordination or body sense or spatials at all and walking/running just does the body in even worse. i dont have much Cardio tips (i try to walk a lot and we live in a v hilly area in general) other than Swimming is the most joint-kind cardio you can do. jogging/walking/running/sprinting stuff aint so good on the jointscrewed folk and especially if you dont get your gait/stride analysed n the Proper orthotic inserts for it (those weird contoured heel things) if you still want to do a walkabout a lot.

i am finding a bunch of Slow Yoga and Lifting Weights/Body Weight Exercises help as opposed to Walking Exercise. cannot stress the importance of lifting a weight if nothing else cos its the One Thing to build good bone density and to strengthen the ligaments/tendons in connective tissue Troubles, but you will have to go slow n gentle with it cos connective tissue isn't as quick to get stronger as muscles. also there's usually some vague Anxiety/Discomfort/Brainfog trouble with chronic pain and unfortunetally neurochemically doing a weight or doing a relaxing yoga is one of the few things that really does a good Job against it. stuff to do with brain factors and GABA and all that. 

its very important you dont just sit there forever and at least try ur best to do a stretch every so often cos if nothing else all the lymph in ur body (lymph is white blood cells n interstitial fluid) will just sit there since its moved by Physical Activity. 





ANYWAY thats all the dumb babby nerd spazmo problems info i got so far/can remember for now. hth!!!!!!!!! soz for writing a lot/if it was boring

 Sorry for the ruthless quote snipping but I would totally second Yog's post.

 Powerballs are like... £10 now I think? They're difficult to get started when you first try because there's this weird technique and if you don't use it for ages you forget how to start it and it's hella annoying. You could even get a stress ball to squeeze if you're feeling dank. They have a bunch of them if you want to make a game out

 Calibre Products on Amazon are selling one for £13 and that's what I've been using since the summer for knee pain. If you do get it, try to criss-cross the straps at the back rather than just doing them like Velcro shoes since it adds more resistance and bounce. I tried the largest size from PoundLand once and it stank the house out and I couldn't get it past my calf without ripping it.

 Pretty sure Nike do all kinds of supports and stuff.

 Maybe swimming could be a nice form of therapy for your bodies since you're all floaty and being chased by a mysterious floater.

lmfao i already spent 7/8 years bugging docs to figure out what was up. all the pain started when i was 14 and i couldn't walk up stairs without like... having to keep my legs straight cause there was too much pain and it was super lame. ofc being 14 when it started i went to the docs and they wer elike "lol it's growing pains" and u know i finished growing at 16 (cause i hit 5'5 and am stuck there now) and the pain obv has not left me so it just took me going to the doc like "look m9 something is up with me my dude" and i got referred to the hospital.

yeah i do get rl dizzy if i stand up to quick and find myself trying to catch on stuff to prevent me falling down (which hasn't happened yet lolol). i did do a pee test and the hospital was like "ye up ur salt and water" which i did but the thing is it made my heart palpitations worse??? probably a coincidence but it didn't make it any better. didn't change the dizziness etc either.

as for waterworks problems i do have a scumbag bladder that only tells me i need to go when it's like "GO OR UR GONNA HAVE AN ACCIDENT" leading to me running when i have to go which is... well with these legs it is not Easy. idk if that's bc i was just a stupid kid who never went to the loo on time (i was one of them who would just keep forgettin to go until oops 10/10 kid u wet ur pants) or if it's just another collective symptom on wth is up with this meat robot i am in.

lmao i am a picker unfortunately :/ i tend to pick at my lips when i wake up and at my scalp throughout the day and although itry to dsitract myself (currently doin it with pokemon yellow thank u based nintendo) i just end up picking and then being like ":/" after cause i know i shouldn't do it and yet there i go. if i'm not picking i usually have the string of my hoodie in my mouth and chewing it which leads them to being kinna gross lmao

kfldj the idea of more bowel problems just makes me want to cry cause my hormones make it go whack during pms week :') i asked my doc abt it tho and they said that it's pretty common, and i just gotta deal w/ it. it's nothing a good antidiarrhea pill can't fix but it's still like "god damn it" every time smh.

i'm currently only on codeine but bc i'm building the resistance to it's effects if i find 2 starts to Not Work I'll go back and ask abt somethin else. the codeine also just messes with my head and i can't do heck when i'm medicated - so i lose hours where i could be doing classwork to sitting there being rly high.

the anxiety thing - the doc at the hospital said that i might have anxiety linked to my condition but i was sort of offended bc i'm not anxious cause of the pain imo?? i'm anxious anyway cause that's just my personality and i have pretty minor social anxiety anyway

yes we have several knee braces (mum's got a medical one, i got 2 (one's more complicated, one's just sort of a thing you tighten ur knee with without any bells and whistles) and my dad has 1) and a wrist brace but i think i might need ankle and elbow ones?? those joints have been hurtin more often. if only i could get a hip brace rip

i can't run anyway cause my lungs are just... rly rly bad. idk if it's asthma cause i've never been diagnosed w/ it and ud think if i had asthma someone would have noticed (although when i was but a wee bairn a doc said i could have it, but my parents thought it was just cause we lived near a factory (and i've never had an asthma attack before. i've had panic attacks during playing sports but never an asthma attack?? at least not to my knowledge. who knwos)). someitmes i just get pooped walking to the shops (which is abt a mile?? i think. i need to check) but it depends how quick i walk. if i'm feelin Good I will walk at average human pace, if i'm in a hurry I push my ass regardless of how I feel (and thus Suffer) but if i'm in pain/medicated i just... amble. waddle. whatever works that day.

on my rly bad days i use a cane w/ my right hand cause my left is the bad leg. unforuntaely as my arms are made of noodles it tires my upper arm out v quickly and if i'm rly using it (like i did on tuesday) the muscles in the center of my palm just scream and cry like they're bruised or someth.

as for shoes i usually am wearing hikin boots w/ inserts. they're usuall just cheap ones from the pound shop but i could ask my mum abt going to AbleWorld to get some proper ones for me

shaymin i will send you pms every other day for a few weeks telling you to work your arms while jamming to your favorite tunes if you would so like

but about the waterworks control. i used to have problems with that up til i was like 14 or so, it might be totally irrelevant (IANAD or like slightly well versed in any doctor stuff, oh and maybe TMI), but look up kegels and stick with it, 6 months into it and i was perf.

ANYWAY its good to know ur down with the good herb tho, all the best ppl are  O0
you have no idea.

also worth noting i will likely be living in massachusetts, if not vermont, next year... that stuff will be legal recreationally in both places v soon. NH is behind on the times, the most north you can get without being in the south, so FYI don't tell my parents, i'm leaving and never returning. america is coming to their senses also go Bernie for a million reasons, let's change the world with our position in the hegemony c'mon america!!!

you guys in the UK will get it once we do. maybe its a little america-centric, but stick with me. its harmless (unless you smoke it, smoking is ALWAYS bad for you), and has a lot of benefits.

oh and i tried buffalo mozzarella pizza today. real good, maybe not worth 8 euro tho

She works in stv over in Glasgow and sent me an email this morning, she sounds really nice. I'm hoping this will open up a few doors for me tbh. It'll be good to escape Edinburgh every so often too, plus Glasgows better for shopping instead of the 20 mile hell that is princes street

HELLO sorry for being absent n not gettin back to ppl, mental issues. ANYWAY


shaymin i will send you pms every other day for a few weeks telling you to work your arms while jamming to your favorite tunes if you would so like

i vote for Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam as the music

but about the waterworks control. i used to have problems with that up til i was like 14 or so, it might be totally irrelevant (IANAD or like slightly well versed in any doctor stuff, oh and maybe TMI), but look up kegels and stick with it, 6 months into it and i was perf.

yeh when i rememeber to do them kegels deffo give me a few more seconds on the invisible n spiteful timer i think. i know ur meant to kegel when u get the Undying Urge but mines hella tempermental as it is and s/t kegels make them worse lmao but i am still getting mine Looked Into so

kegels ALSO have other really useful n cool n good benefits but this is a pg13 site so

you have no idea.

also worth noting i will likely be living in massachusetts, if not vermont, next year... that stuff will be legal recreationally in both places v soon. NH is behind on the times, the most north you can get without being in the south, so FYI don't tell my parents, i'm leaving and never returning. america is coming to their senses also go Bernie for a million reasons, let's change the world with our position in the hegemony c'mon america!!! you guys in the UK will get it once we do. maybe its a little america-centric, but stick with me.

aw man i can't wait. when it becomes legal we are so being the bitter Old Guard/Prohibition about it all. i mean i wont get on my soapbox too much but agghhh its so useful for so many things and everyone is too up in rhetoric from their predecessors and fffffffffffff

in any case even just state level legalisation is a good sign against the times cos sure Federal Rules but gay marriage is slowly makin its course in the U S of A and our lot in the uk begrudgingly made gay marriage Legal so dang it i will get to marry a gay weed in my lifetime so help me god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its harmless (unless you smoke it, smoking is ALWAYS bad for you), and has a lot of benefits.

ya its Vape Life for me cos im asthmatic and also hella sensitive to nicotine (tried a couple puffs after a long time since quitting and ugh i felt like i was a Russian National who had particularly dissed putin in a bad n public n lasting way and i was gettin my just desserts russian style)

honestly tho while me and what appears to be fast cyclin bipolar wrestle over each other like a sensually homoerotic school fight the magickal herb has been one of the only meds (of a sort) that has actually kept me from goin insane, ngl. it has its downs, couchlock, munchies esp if u just eaten, sleepiness if its way before ur bedtime, but its a goodun and OH MY GOD weightlifting and the Herb together it is a Dream.

i remember someone saying it was like "an Expansion Pak for life" and i can't disagree



Sorry for the ruthless quote snipping but I would totally second Yog's post.

haha honestly if people dont quotesnip the junk i type then the puk servers will crash so its prolly for the best

Powerballs are like... £10 now I think? They're difficult to get started when you first try because there's this weird technique and if you don't use it for ages you forget how to start it and it's hella annoying. You could even get a stress ball to squeeze if you're feeling dank. They have a bunch of them if you want to make a game out

oh my god people on youtube are like starting it onehanded and ive been practising for days and i still need the string. i lost one Forever and i hope to god i dont lose the second cos otherwise i am 100% screwed and so is my elbow

Quote
Calibre Products on Amazon are selling one for £13 and that's what I've been using since the summer for knee pain. If you do get it, try to criss-cross the straps at the back rather than just doing them like Velcro shoes since it adds more resistance and bounce.

huh //writes down// my current ones are nice but those ones look like they wouldn't Slip Down over the day like these ones do.






lmfao i already spent 7/8 years bugging docs to figure out what was up. all the pain started when i was 14 and i couldn't walk up stairs without like... having to keep my legs straight cause there was too much pain and it was super lame. ofc being 14 when it started i went to the docs and they wer elike "lol it's growing pains" and u know i finished growing at 16 (cause i hit 5'5 and am stuck there now) and the pain obv has not left me so it just took me going to the doc like "look m9 something is up with me my dude" and i got referred to the hospital.

aw man, totes sucks 2 hear. at least you got to the Hospital level of things? that always takes an Age anyway (took a friend of ours several years to get them to find out she had the anklyosing spondylitis idk how you spell it) how is that going? i guess ur getting Connective Tissue Disorder/Cartelidge problems looked into?

unfortunetly with Pain Issues n Dodgybodies u will just have Good Days n Bad Days and the odd Ultra Cool N Good day but dont give up!

Quote
yeah i do get rl dizzy if i stand up to quick and find myself trying to catch on stuff to prevent me falling down (which hasn't happened yet lolol). i did do a pee test and the hospital was like "ye up ur salt and water" which i did but the thing is it made my heart palpitations worse??? probably a coincidence but it didn't make it any better. didn't change the dizziness etc either.

the ol orthostatic hypotension! it sux. like you just get up and ur in a completely different world for bout 5-10 seconds while ur brain floats off for a while and ur vision goes all starry. what do you tend to drink? i used to drink LOADs of water but didn't do squat about electrolytes and i know im not Exercising a lot but with the ol dodgybodies it aint so good at Regulating stuff properly, including salts.

so i tend to put a bit of salt in some squash as a kind of Bootleg Isotonic drink and cos im a  bit Clumsy i put it in a sippy cup to force myself to Slow Down cos half my trouble is i drink way too fast lmao (vague swallowing issues)

edit: saw the Increased Salt Like They Said, prolly deffo push for a tilt-table test at least

Quote
as for waterworks problems i do have a scumbag bladder that only tells me i need to go when it's like "GO OR UR GONNA HAVE AN ACCIDENT" leading to me running when i have to go which is... well with these legs it is not Easy. idk if that's bc i was just a stupid kid who never went to the loo on time (i was one of them who would just keep forgettin to go until oops 10/10 kid u wet ur pants) or if it's just another collective symptom on wth is up with this meat robot i am in.

(looks around nervously to make sure people who im tryina appear Cool n Superior in front of aren't watching) SAME

i got Yelled At whenever it happened as a kid (i dont think they meant to but its a long story) so apparently childhood/teenage me dealt with it by havin my downstairs muscles tightened up tight CONSTANTLY to hold it in to the point where i daren't even breathe in too deep in case it made my waterworks Malfunction. and now im on a brain pill that takes the anxiety down a good notch i literally dont have the Anxiousness Ability to keep it all Tensed Up all the time and well

at least i lasted until after school until both me and my body Gave Up lmao

idk if you're uh using the same uhhhhhhh Solution to the problem that i have to but i have deece tips n Experience w/ this end of things but i will probably PM it if u would like instead cos uh wellll im not admitting some of this stuff here all out in the public puk eye. cos im WAY too cool for that //slicks back hair cooly but is sweatin nervously//

ALSO to stop this post getting huger n going over the post limit i have stuck the rest of this section of my reply (mostly just ur post tbh) on the pastebin (http://pastebin.com/PCMYeLiB) cos i do ramble a lot

oh my god people on youtube are like starting it onehanded and ive been practising for days and i still need the string. i lost one Forever and i hope to god i dont lose the second cos otherwise i am 100% screwed and so is my elbow

 That guy who's like "these are my credentials!" then flexes and it's like faaaaammmm, he's like a crepe uncle. Hand starting is rolid though, never could do it lmao but reading your post made me pick mine back up and it's hella fun but idk where to put my pinky so it's just pressed against the side which causes pain after a while.




 Completed a 20 day game of This War Of Mine and only lost one civilian! She had an honourable death considering that she prevented a woman from being assaulted by a drunken soldier by killing him with her fists even though he had an assault rifle.

 The soldier beat her pretty badly tbh. Was gutted to have her proceed to die because the game has horrible descriptions of the locations so I went and murdered a bunch of people for bandages only to find that there were no bandages and by the time I got back she had bled to death.

 For some reason, a guy lumped a little girl on me whilst he went to find his uncle? She actually managed to talk my guy out of his "broken" state just in time for another civilian/survivor to knock on the door and get him out of his "depressive" state.

 It's a really good game, to be fair. I'll try and do another run but it was pretty tedious once resources were too low.

 Actually told someone how crap I felt last night and it was honestly nice to be met with nice words for once.

 Aside from that, I met with the guys after spending an hour separating a ball of necklaces. Angry Orchard is fantastic. Apart from Newcastle Brown, Angry Orchard is my new go-to drink.

 It's odd since Hooch was too much like lemonade and it reminded me of Smirnoff Ice and Strongbow tastes like Tango whereas Dark Fruits tastes like crap squash.

 Hot damn. Obviously don't drink until you're 18 in the UK and 70 in the US because I don't want to endorse under-age drinking.

 Me and a really good friend argued about two years ago and haven't spoken until today.

 She popped me up out of the blue and we've been having a catch-up after a little heart-to-heart. Really can't begin to explain how chuffed I am right now since she was like my Northern sister and there was such a good connection like.



 Also went against my judgement and picked up BMTH's recent album instead of The Bunny The Bear's The Stomach For It and it's really good so far.

 I was giving Bring Me flak for changing but I'm listening to Doomed right now and there's like a Three Days Grace vibe and it's pretty swell. The change isn't too bad, tbh.

 Really want to get into tBtB but they're weird. Like... I can't really explain it if you haven't ever heard them. Totally look up The Stomach For It on YouTube.

 Was gonna recommend "The Screamer" that's meant to sound like a jet engine before reading that D: they sorta sound like joints grinding against each other without the cartilage anyway. Plus "The Screamer" sounds hilariously suggestive or hilariously scary depending on how you look at it.

 How long do you do it for? I just go until I'm bored but apparently it's meant to build forearms too? Still in gym limbo where I'm not in either gyms but trying to get back in lol.

i beat the e4 in black 2 today, after fully expecting to lose.
like, my arcanine had gotten a bit ahead and i was mostly in there expecting to lose so i would know how much to level up (had no internet at the time), and it turns out my team of mostly underlevelled (apart from the arcanine that was level 63 by the time i finished because he refused to die). i'm proud of it.

what i'm even prouder of though, is that i managed to catch all 3 of the swordfighter legend trio (virizion, terrakion, cobalion) without needed to use my master ball. dusk ball on virizion, ultra ball on terrakion, pokeball on cobalion. I got really lucky with cobalion because i got a lucky freeze in just as he got into the red zone, so he was basically mine straight away. Only one I'm using in my team is virizion, though, because they rounded out my team (really needed a good grass type, the fighting type was just a bonus) and it helped.

Start with Disturbed's newest album if you're new to them. It's not as heavy as everything before that so it's great to start on. Then if you like that, Indestructible is really good and so is Ten Thousand Fists.

Trivium I need to hear more of and they're pretty good too. The other two I haven't given a listen.

I did my audition with a friend for one acts at my high school and I wasn't a nervous wreck, so I feel really good about it.

I think Pantera disappeared off of my ipod sometime last year and I didn't think about putting them on again *sigh*. That Mouth For War solo though...definitely worth a listen.

Managed to talk to someone today about my questioning of gender, and he was really helpful with it.

Also, managed to convince my tv and film teacher that I could work on my own on the next project. Means I can go at my own pace and not at some overly-worrying perfectionist's frenzied pace.

 I've just put Ten Thousand Fists on now! Really like the cover of the album since it's like the retro Warhammer Fantasy art which was always fantastically strange to look at since 9 times out of 10, the moon had a skull face.

 Definitely giving Indestructible a listen tomorrow after uni.

 Gutted about the lead being a nob but I'll still give them a crack since I occasionally listen to Lostprophets even though Ian was a radical degenerate.

 My friend loved Killswitch Engage because his favourite wrestler used one of their songs as his intro (CM Punk maybe?).

 Meant to give Alice in Chains a blast too.

 It's a nice change from all the pop/dance/remix stuff I listen to because of the gym. It's weird because someone puts the radio on and we all end up doing our stuff to Robbie Williams or something equally inappropriate.

-------------------------------------------

 Managed to get toothpaste today since the one one I was using was causing my teeth to hurt. After checking it out, it turns out that it just wasn't for me and although my father suggested using it, it's something that a dentist should recommend. Replaced it with Sensodyne in the hopes that it'll fix any damage. Picked the whitening one over extra fresh since it's what I'm used to and whether it has whitened my teeth or not is up for debate tbh.

i p much just do it until i can do it no more and the elbow joints go from "FEEL THE BERN" to "AAGHGHGHGHGHG STOP" (about 15-30 seconds hahahahaaaaauugghhh sob sob sob) cos im trying to push the stamina in those joints. iirc it's used as post injury rehabilitation in the forearm/elbow???? and well i aint Injured it per se its just really crappy cos of spaz issues lmao but yeh its like desktop Training i guess.

i basically needed a way to do this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dgbCDtqdlI) (force body to repair the elbow stuff cos it forgot) but without the big superficial bruises and red marks all over my elbow joint lmao. i used to do that and then do a workout so the body was Repair Mode but it was sometimes a bit of faff just to have a non-stiff elbow all the time.

also i didn't have the kinesiology or w/e tape so i just used tube socks but yeh i kind of needed a way to Train Those Muscles Up and the powerball does a p good job of that when i remember to do it and its not too Early/Late in the day




Managed to talk to someone today about my questioning of gender, and he was really helpful with it.

//kramerslides in// did i hear something about someone questioning their gender? #1 thing is to make baby steps in the direction you feel is Right and if they feel good, make further baby steps. do what feels Right and not what you think you should do cos boy can you get lost easily in Discontentment if you go "but if i dont do _____ that wont make me a Real ____"

im not always about and im crap at replyin but if you have Serious Woes about it drop me a line on here or w/e

:OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

life to lifeless = one of my fave albums as a terrible melo-death/indus-metalhead teen, for real. i was so sad when the frontdude went and i know he's Back now but the new stuff just dont cut it for me the same way the first album did :/ beth drummin the beginnin to life to lifeless on the kitchen counter w chopsticks while everyone is out cos shes bored.

i was gonna list some good 00s nu-metalish bands but we'd be here all day while i namedropped and tried too hard to look kvlt. (i.e. static x, bleed the sky, american head charge, spineshank, mudvayne, etc. etc.)

^ for a good night get to Uncle Jimmy's the bridge over from the Ponte Vecchio, down the street from Mercato Nuovo. With your first drink give them 1 euro and ask for a wrist band. Now every drink you buy you get a free shot. Pints are like 6 euro and they have cocktail deals sometimes. From there I usually hop over to a few bars or a club but if you're wasted already Red Garter is fun, karoake and seating. Wing Wednesday and Thursday and Taco Tuesday. Kikuya right next door is fun too, they have this Dragoon Beer and... drink at your own risk. strong stuff.

tuesdays Green Street Bar is fun. $2 tequila tuesday. make friends with one of the bartenders and you can get free VIP to the bamboo club down the street if you're into that.

florence is such a blast. Find Pinos, Oil Shoppe, and eat some kebabs its all bomb. Off the Hook has great burgers and beer. If you're out past 2am find a secret bakery! its real cool. hope you might go back. anyways what restaurant did you find?

To be fair our restaurants were right by the hostel we were staying in. First night we went to la trattoria tiberio,  which was nice and homely. We splashed out at la taverna del Bronzino, because the place itself has history, and we splashed out for my other half's birthday.  Fell in love with the indoor market too, much more to see than the one we have in Swansea!

Today I navigated Venice, and went on a water bus

late to this but trivium are dead to me after Ascendancy. they did this weird thing where between albums they lost their original sound completely and ended up sounding like a poundland metallica cos it was the fashion at the time? and it was Weird.

this happens a lot with good nu metal bands, they run out of ideas after their second album and shrug and either release weird crap or in the case of SikTH (praise be unto them), they break up after their second album is a bit //wavy hand movement while grimacing//

Do warm baths help with the pain at all? Could even go to a massage parlour since they're meant to be fantastic for muscles but I've always been afraid to go because apparently the dirty massage parlours are real and I don't want to risk it.

baths! holy crap i kind of forgot they existed? im kind of a showers person cos of how baths are all huge gas bills with the swimming pool of ur own skin cells and all that and i kind of have to Japan it up i.e. have Clean Wash first and then soak in the tub or have showered earlier if im gonna bath it up, but honest to god baths are (second to proper effort-meditatin for an hour) the only thing that give my body that proper Chilled Out N Nice feeling so i should prolly have one?

this happens a lot with good nu metal bands, they run out of ideas after their second album and shrug and either release weird crap

 The Bunny The Bear released some weird crap after The Bear left and they just sounded like a crappy Paramore tribute band :mellow:

yeah thats where ur meant to put them isn't it? p sure pants are to hold fruit n veg from the store and tshirts are where your legs go

 I've never used them so you'll know more than me D: just sounds really cool and steampunkish or something

Aww you guys :') thanks for the champagne & hypothetical balloons!!

@alice I got set up on a date with a friend of a friend & we got on really well all evening but it was the first time I'd met him. I enjoyed the kissing and I guess he isn't bad looking but now that he's gone and I've had time to think about it I'm not sure I'm really attracted to him??? I'm not sure about the whole thing. I don't have a relationship but he's taking me for dinner again tomorrow (because it's the last time we'll both be available before we go home for Easter) so I guess I'm gonna get a lot of time to think about it.

So not an entirely bad experience I guess.

Anyway, just eaten at Wetherspoons for the 4th time this week and I think that is jolly impressive.

 Got back to the gym after two weeks and it was a really good session and everyone was really nice this time, it was like stepping into a completely new gym. They also have an Insanity class that I might attend since it always sounded like a challenge but from the adverts it just seems to be intense cardio with planking?

 Also, Wednesday's lab report sounds easy-pips since it's an outline report rather than a full and it wasn't a study so a section of it is irrelevant!

 Popping up randoms on Snapchat since it's fun to talk to people when there's like 0 repercussions. I say that, I'm talking to a girl that I had a thing with, but she was really nice and I would have rather been actual friends rather than lmaoing outta there.

 Managed to book an appointment to sort out contact lenses. Looking forward tbh. Not looking forward to diddling my eyeball but it'll be nice to not wear glasses occasionally.

I created one of the most weird tastes in my mouth that I've ever experienced!

First, I brushed my teeth with mildly minty toothpaste.
Then I took a pill that I have which gets rid of dizziness that I frequently experience while travelling, it has a bitter aftertaste.
Finally, I ate a couple of Jaffa Cakes, which have that orangey flavour.

It was an interesting combination to say the least!

The Bunny The Bear released some weird crap after The Bear left and they just sounded like a crappy Paramore tribute band :mellow:

yeh i kind of dread when the bands i like are like "new album coming out!!!!!" cos about 9% its Good and 81% of the time its like "we ran out of ideas we're never making that album you like again" (i.e. fear factory after Obsolete) and you kind of just give the Good Albums another few listen throughs and Sigh Sadly

I've never used them so you'll know more than me D: just sounds really cool and steampunkish or something

oh no!!!!!!!!!!!! sorry i was making the joke about my days when i cant dress gud and thought you were making a joke about me being confused and putting socks on my arms haha

i feel a teensy bit bad in case it seemed like i was being mean or something

Get your bathe on brudda YOG! Bath salts are meant to help but some bloke ate them and tried eating a tramp's face before so idk if it's worth the risk but baths are cool, even hot tubs in the leisure centres or maybe saunas?

sir yes sir! //brave salute// i will try to remember not to be a huge water-save nerd (even tho my showers take about an hour whoops) and will try to go to LUSH and survive the inevitable asthma attack and buy some weird bath bomb (i was actually bought a bath bomb kit for my birthday by my partner so i should probably do that)

yeh i like the idea of saunas cos im all about Renewing And Refreshing Experiences but i lived in spain for 5 years and tbh after going thru i have to say i much prefer existing in mild coolness, saunas are ok but only for a short while (tried one in the surprisingly decked out gym in chorley, of all places)

 Amazon seem to be going half-price on gym supplements at the moment so I finally got around to picking up some Gold Standard and some pre-workout.

 Normally I wouldn't touch pre-workout but I'm trying to get rid of the energy drinks because they're extra calories and instead of drinking one of those and playing the Playstation I can just use the pre-workout and it'll contribute to something more productive like gainz.

 Speaking of gainz, I managed to increase my squatting to 50kg and it doesn't sound like much but 60kg is my milestone because that's the weight I was squatting when I hurt my back. Looking forward to getting back to (and passing) 60kg. It'll be therapeutic to finally get past 60kg since it's a quite light and it's a a weight that I snapped my stuff up whilst attempting to squat it. Could probably do 60kg on Friday. Hopefully 100kg by the start of summer or mid-summer at the latest.

 
 It's something I'm pleased about. It's an acomplishment.

 Got through some of the more tedious trophies in The Division tonight! Mostly the ones for completing the wings in your base but it's done now so I just have to get collectables, finish the game, and do some team stuff then I've got platinum!

 Wanted to platinum Fallout 4 but it glitched and screwed me out of those last few Railroad trophies :')

 Starting revision next week for the next batch of exams!

 Feeling confident about these ones since biological psychology is really cool and all about the brain and social psychology is really cool but I only enjoy the lectures from one lecturer because the others are hilariously unprofessional and I really don't like them lol.

 Loving biopsych though. The amygdala is really cool how it regulates fear and stuff. Really wish psychology wasn't so keen on ethics because it would be really cool to dig through people's brains and diddle their bits and see how they work.

 Managed to get contact lenses to work! Putting them in was awful and taking them out was painful but I'll get better at it.

 Also getting into eating less carbs and saturated fats. Obviously not going to get in shape for summer but I want to be set by next February.

 Also, the gym is a Christian organisation so I didn't even bother going down today since it's Good Friday and they would probably be closed. Just spent the day playing Fallout 4 with that new Automatron dlc.

 Would 100% recommend the dlc. The only downside is that the quests will last about an hour but the robots are really cool and the quests would have honestly dragged on if they did it like some of the story missions.
 
 Not really interested in the next DLC since getting materials is a chore and it seems to be just settlement stuff?

i just totally beached my roommate out and it feels soooo good. i woke up a little late today to her doing laundry, i had like no clothes but i decided i'd wait 3 hours for the wash cycle to finish and once it did she was in a skype clal with her mom (like usual because nobody else likes her) and i knock on the door and say "hi shay! your clothes just finished washing and i have like no clothes right now so once you're finished with that skype call if you could just take them out so i can do a load of wash i'd appreciate it." and she's like, "umm, well, i have a second load i need to do too". "shay... i have no clean clothes." and she's like "too bad, sorry"

so i walked into the kitchen / laundry room and took all her clothes out from the wash and threw them on the kitchen table, and put mine in and started the wash. i get back into my room and 3 minutes later i hear a loud knock at my bedroom door, and i like smile and i'm like, "what" and then she's like "RIGHT AFTER I TOLD YOU I HAD ANOTHER LOAD OF WASH TO DO YOU WENT AND PUT A LOAD OF CLOTHES IN ANYWAY" and then crosses her arms

and i'm like, "hey, this may come as a surprise, but other people can be totally unreasonable too. i had no clean clothes, and you wanted to do two loads. you can wait your turn." and she's like, "BUT I HAD MORE SHIRTS I NEEDED TO CLEAN" and i just look at her and said, "that's too bad" she gave me a disgusted look like nobody has told her she's an awful person before and stormed out

i warned her the whole ex lover ending his life thing had me a bit testy. don't know why she's surprised i'm not in the mood for her attitude this week.

 Kpyana! Nope, I haven't seen any in shops in Wales for a long time. Maybe they're restricted to children since they're the only ones I see wearing them? I buy my shoes online nowadays.



 I've updated my CV so I'm hoping to print it off tomorrow and hand it in! Unfortunately they're not listed on the corporation's website (even though they exist) so there was no way to check if the job's still going until I get there and it's near my old college so it's one heck of a walk.

 Also, I met an old friend today and we should be meeting up tomorrow for a day out and a catchup :D which is really awesome since she's as cool as a cucumber and I'm actually excited. Seeing her today was a funny story. It's more awkward actually. Not sure if it's pkmn.net material tbh.

 Then on Saturday I'm hanging out with someone else that I'm not entirely fussed because she kicked off at me because of her poor social skills! After explaining to her that she's just a friend and that friends have to reschedule she changed her tone with me? Did I just friendzone someone?

i missed lightup shoes chat but im sure you could do that with LEDs and some very sturdy components possibly? as for childrens shoes me im sad cos no-one will make the osiris d3's ever again. they're hideous and i love them.


fake edit: yeh as long as ur not allergic to annoying beardy barista sf hipster t**ts like i am youtube has a few results for "diy light up shoes" should you go that route one day



 They sell them on Amazon! They're like hightop trainers with a clear(ish) sole with LEDs in them that you charge via USB and pick a colour I think? They do chrome ones too!

 I'm quite allergic to hipsters. My lecturer started spouting Trevor quotes from GTA 5 in the middle of a lecture to me once... it was weird hearing a lecturer randomly say that she eats hipsters for breakfast out of context.

my freelance writing boss is getting sued by Fox News for owning a site called foxnews.com.co, even though it's totally protected under US parody law. In his defense he listed my "Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer" article to strengthen how the site is clearly a joke. So pretty much some Fox News legal correspondent is going to have to read my article and this is the current highlight of any career or job I've had so far.

 Managed to bench 60kg today for the keks.

 Also, noticed that Bloc Party had a new album out? It's different from what I remember their old stuff to be. It's a little weird tbh but in a good way.

 Someone here was into Bloc Party (I think). It must be here because I don't think anyone I know irl likes them.

 Also got the Chvrches album! Gonna get my friend into them like I got him into Twenty One Pilots.

 THAT BEING SAID, it is quite boring to hear Stressed Out on the radio for the billionth time when they have three albums with cracking tunes? Like, Guns For Hands is pretty fantastic and Car Radio and even then, with Blurryface, the majority of their songs are like "whoa" but they go from depressing to depressing but really happy.

 FAIRLY LOCAL! Couldn't think of the name. That should be on more.

Hmm, I could see that. I always heard about it in conversations about the illuminati, but I see how that leads right back to that idea...

 I helped push a car out of a car park because it wouldn't start. It felt good to do something nice.

 Also, after making quite an aggressive status, a friend of a friend got in touch to ask about the gym and after finding out what he wants to achieve, I offered to come down with him for his first session so it's not too awkward and to help out with basic exercises since I was a little wuss when I started because I was too frightened to touch the big weights. Hopefully he'll be able to meet his goals because from what I've heard, he's quite insecure and this should boost his confidence even if it's just the endorphins that come with the first workout.

 Managed to further rekindle an old friendship with a best friend that I fell out with for a few years. It's a bit weird being this close to her after 2 or 3 years but it's nice since we used to have a brother and sister relationship kinda thing. Really missed the closeness if I'm honest.

 Also, I'm getting good vibes right now from someone that I thought straight-up disliked me? I'll admit that last night was rough so it was probably my mental state that had me locked down but here's hoping we hang out next week because talking over text is pretty lame unless it's long-distance.

 It's horrible over-analysing every social interaction to the point where you straight-up think that someone hates you or that they're doing that thing where they just tolerate you because they don't want to hurt your feelings. Really makes the nights seem darker and more isolating.

 So... today has been good! I don't know what was up with my last message.

Always wanted to ask but if someone comes in and can hear the music, we might get in trouble since I'm not sure if we have the right licenses... especially considering that we just play the same music on a loop.

I may have worked out how I got amnesia the other day.

My seizure started while I was in bed. When I try to sleep, I will often alternate between laying on my back and laying on my side. I must have been laying on my side when my seizure started, because my head has been hurting for the last few days as though I knocked it. A blow to the head is what usually causes amnesia.

That's good too. I finished the counselling sessions today, I enquired about what college may be able to do with ID badges/reports, in terms of name changes and pronoun changes so that's looking nice too. Not going ahead with that yet, though.

 Biological Psychology is really interesting at the moment and it's easier to remember this stuff since it's possible to associate the brain abnormalities and what they do with the way that zombies behave.

 We've also got this Varsity thing going on so there's a good vibe around campus although I think we're losing to Cardiff.

Varsity is Swansea v Cardiff in all the sports pretty much but for the majority that aren't competing absolutely use it as an excuse to have a full day of drinking and merriment (especially if they still do it all at Cardiff) and not having to worry about anything course related.

It's been one hell of a stressful week but I've managed to get through it all! Just have a couple more odds and ends to submit for one class, then a presentation on Monday. As of then I'll be done uni for this year and (providing I pass) I'll technically have a bachelors degree omg. I'm fully prepared that next year will be Hell but right now I'm looking forward to a break. Also got lots of things to look forward to like my holiday and seeing two of my fav bands aaaa

I have a Kanto set too (http://i.imgur.com/rQh7pnI.jpg), I wanted to get more but the people who make them only do Johto and Hoenn sets as well as Kanto and I'd hate to have half of them by one set of people and the rest by another set. They're really nice though, I might pick up Johto and Hoenn sometime.

absolutely use it as an excuse to have a full day of drinking and merriment

 There were so many people drinking, it was fantastic. Like being stuck in Wind Street but if everything started in the day. It took ages to figure out that Swansea was wearing green and Cardiff was wearing red though, it completely escaped me that Cardiff would come down and watch their teams.



 I've got 48/48 credits! No more studies during my days off! NO MORE ELECTRIC SHOCKS! I'm going to try and get the stats bit of my lab report done on Saturday and crack on with the rest until Wednesday. I always do it all at the last minute and get stressed and it's always awful.
 
 Chuffed that this year is coming to a close since uni has been total non-stop stress. Kinda surprised that it has gone by so quickly though, I remember the first few weeks where it was sunny and lovely aha. It's almost as if I can finally see the door at the end of the corridor and it's not long until I can finally get out and relax.

Might have a volunteering position in an office over summer but I have to fill in an application form and attend an interview before I can get it. It'll be nice to be able to go into office work after uni rather than having the whole existential crisis where I don't know where to go and it'll help me slide into research positions with a bit of luck (although my lab reports have been terrible so far).

I just caught a snorlax. It was level 30, and took out most of my Pokemon (or put them to sleep) I managed to get it's HP down into the red, while sleeping, chucked some great balls at it, didn't work! It used rest. It had full HP and was asleep. I chuck a great ball at it, and it works!

turns out he's from my hometown, abroad for a semester like me, and he used to have all the same friends as me when he was a freshman and sophomore but i became friends with his old friends after he stopped hanging out with them so i never heard of him. his old friends are still my good friends and we used to do all the same stuff just never together b/c fate and we meet here of all places and can't stop talking to each other

he's taking me out to some craft beer place thursday night, so i'm infinitely hyped.

 Gotta make sure to drink more water if you're on creatine though. It's really effective though so you'll be seeing strength gains down the line.

I watched an episode of Doctor Who today, I've never watched it before.

I've liked Torchwood ever since I first saw the Children of Earth series. I've been curious for a while, just how Jack gained his immortality. After watching the last episode of series 1, now I know!

I looked for the specific episode when Jack becomes immortal. I didn't watch the whole series, though I am considering it.

Trivia: Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who, I didn't know that until someone on the website I watched the episode on pointed it out.

I didn't need to, since I only watched the episode to find out how Jack became immortal. If the first episode of the two gives some kind of explanation as to why it happened in the first place, then maybe I'll have a reason to watch it. I'm probably going to watch it at some point anyway, when I get around to watching the whole series.

 My eyes actually feel okay today. They're watering slightly but yesterday they hurt and my right eye just wouldn't stop weeping so I think I'm getting better and getting shot of this cold/flu thing - gonna start revising tomorrow too since I was meant to start this week but I've essentially slept through the entire week so that I can get better.

 Feeling motivated at the moment so I might get a weightlifting belt and start going to the gym earlier so that I can get deadlifts in again because whenever I go it's usually fairly busy.

 There was actually a really good offer on MP so I'm chuffed with that. Not so chuffed with how much of a nerd I'll look with my MP weightlifting belt but I bought a snackbox for my cut. It should come tomorrow.

 Judge Rinder looks like the twerking guy from the Money Supermarket adverts.

its babys first Lifting Supplement so im kinda excited to see what itll do, creatine is p much the only one the dude in the book im takin my Lifting Tips from said was worth much in the supplement world? i like the look of the ALCAR they do but thats more for the mental/nootropic end of things than anything else if i were to take it regularly tbh.

I beat the flying type gym in ruby. It took two tries. That damn altaria!  >:(

First try. Killed swellow, pelipper and Skarmory with my electrode using spark. Entire team defeated by altaria (or other pokemon)

I would have won if the guy didn't use hyper potions!  >:(

I used a TM to teach thunderbolt to electrode.

On my second attempt, I killed the guy's swellow, pelipper and Skarmory with my electrode  (spammed thunderbolt) but halfway through, I had to deal with that stupid altaria. I used Mightyena, used bite a few times, got its HP low, then used roar. Mightyena was defeated (by skarmory I think) I sent out electrode. Skarmory used steel wing. Electrode survived (just) I killed skarmory. Finally, altaria. Low HP. One hit is sure to kill electrode. I thought "screw this" and used self destruct. I don't usually use moves like that, but I was not losing that battle! I only had my marshtomp left! Lol  :laugh:

 Creatine is meant to be the only legal supplement that's scientifically proven to work so it should work but not overnight kinda thing, you should see good strength gains gradually though I think. What's ALCAR? I searched it up but it started talking about infertility and stuff and horses D:

What's ALCAR? I searched it up but it started talking about infertility and stuff and horses D:

well basically i got some horses that have been Too Randy so


NO i am joking but to describe it properly i have to go on a bit of a ramble here.

Spoiler: i used to use spoiler tags to hide my huge rambles in days gone by • show
given my Mental Issues and Slowbrains et al. i am always searching for Answers and Remedies and ways not to let it defeat me and one area of interest i have is Nootropics. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nootropic), chemicals/drugs which improve cognition and functioning. (caffiene is technically one! and so is the l-theanine in a cuppa. both have psychoactive properties which is why britain runs on tea more or less. me i run on yerba mate but im already spergin on about nootropics so do NOT start me on yerba mate if you hate longwinded rambles)

theyre drugs which are currently still being Studied (neurology is a fast n still developing field) for helping brains and purport to improve ur cognition/mental processing etc due to Neurochemical Stuff that i dont understand yet, or scientists aint quite figured out.

one i partake in, piracetam (which i on/off with when i can afford it) is Prescription Only for myoncolus in the uk. which is a pain. i got Tics n Stereotypy but its not worth the hassle to play it off as myoncolus for Free Piracetam so i have to import it from a polish online pharmacy (imported non-scheduled Prescription Only meds can be privately bought outside and imported for your own personal use in the UK, a Loophole.)

but when im on it it does help take some of the worser bits out of my Impairments if i get the balance right. it can also sometimes send me on a bit of a hypomanic though and im still trying to Figure It All Out. 

basically neurology stuff esp regarding bipolar/autism/various other mental Trouble and Intervention Tactics/Helping Alleviate it rly fascinates the dickens out of me cos these are still Unsolved Problems and i kind of like to roll up my sleeves and see what works for me personally with all of it so i can pass it onto others when i am doing this sort of Caring/Informing people about stuff for a living.
 



but yeah more to the point!!! sorry for the ramble. ALCAR (acetyl l-carnitine) is currently bein studied for possible neuroprotective effect, and is sort of getting on-off reputation as a nootropic. currently the Science being done on it is promising stuff for alzheimers/dementia/parkinsons/epilepsy and personally i want to try it one day to see if it helps me focus a bit better? might be placebo but honestly i aint fussed. its like me chewytubes, if it works i'll do it. 

i REALLY want to avoid turning into one of those weirdo nutso 30+ pill stack people from the longecity forum tho, thats for sure.

aw man that makes sense. the company that own them seem to own a lot of Shops (zavvi and a bunch of others) so i suspect they got a lot of Clever Automailer scripts to get people to buy more? its a shame cos until i am having a job im going to be one of their more boring customers haha. i hope their robot cookies scripts dont feel bad that im unable to take up on their offers.

 Monohydrate is the one I've got! It's meant to be really effective and it can get pretty cheap too, haven't tried the tablet ones though since tablets are scarier than powders for some reason. It's like a modifier to the gains you're already making so instead of like 1.3x gains from the protein it'll be like 1.7x gains and then they slowly stack up or something. The numbers are out of nowhere tho.

aw man that makes sense. the company that own them seem to own a lot of Shops (zavvi and a bunch of others) so i suspect they got a lot of Clever Automailer scripts to get people to buy more? its a shame cos until i am having a job im going to be one of their more boring customers haha. i hope their robot cookies scripts dont feel bad that im unable to take up on their offers.

So this one new player was reaming all of us, and I was the closest by 20. My wormhole spell failed and I got an autores. I roll and throw snowballs at this person, then use hellfire which kills them but spares me because of autores. Then I buff my next roll and eat a bunch of food and steal the win.

I guess nudes can be a "I would" but without explicitly saying it but it'll probably vary from people to people. Like the first time I received them I was like "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" and I felt dirty and disturbed (ooo wah-ah-ah-ah-ow) for the entire week since my phone is for Octopus Evolution (and those kinda games) rather than naughty bits.

same, notwithstanding the constant Survelliance Feelings like having Nudes is a strategic disadvantage p much unilaterally in every way "hello yes please have blackmail pictures of me" and id never dream of sending them to anyone

you get those dudes who just mail their weird gross dicks to everyone and its like ??????????

like same, except my phone is bad at games cos its 5 years old so its mostly for keeping my bathing cat happy and blasting awful music in my ears when im outside and pretending not to be and thats it.

 Would definitely contact a doctor if you have joint pain whilst lifting in case you knacker everything up for real and then it's just painful to do anything. If your body is getting used to it you could go into a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday gym week? Would still check with a doctor though. I'm trying to wait until after my exams to get my knee checked now lol.

-------

 Totally managed to bench 70kg today and managed to get a new shaker since my normal one makes water taste like washing-up liquid and gives protein shakes a zesty hint of lemon and citrus to any protein shakes. Totally my fault for leaving it full of soapy water for a few months when I had a break.

 Should finish P1 of biological psychology studies tomorrow and start P2 so then I could potentially finish on Friday then have Saturday and Sunday but I've underestimated the workload so far so who knows. It's so heavy on DNA and COMT polymorphisms (that's probably wrong tbh) atm.

 Trying to write a shopping list for tomorrow since it's time to kick this diet into gear. Looking forward to starting, hoping to lose two stone in four months but I'm going to have to see what happens as I go.

Post by: Kpyna on May 14, 2016, 00:10
after almost 30 hours of travel due to multiple flight mishaps, i'm finally back home. my friends and i were laughing / crying because we were saying while we were about to board our plane before it got rerouted that we "wish(ed) we had one more night in europe" and it ended up coming true in one of the worst ways possible. on the bright side we did get put up in a four star hotel for the night in paris so like... could have been worse.

anyways getting home was awesome because i got chipotle right away to just eat my stress away, then my dad felt bad because we had a communication mishap where i was waiting for him for an hour at the airport so he paid to have my phone totally fixed ($210 so that's a super yay because absolutely no way i'd be affording that for weeks) and i got to drive my car, got my favorite brand of coffee, and i'm probably gonna work at my old coffee shop job until i can find a sales job, there's a car salesman job i'm looking at where i can make $600 a week easy and my friend says i could get it pretty easily so i'm looking into that.

then most importantly my animals were SO happy when i came home i just broke down and cried. my dog walked over really skeptically, and sniffed me like she wasn't positive if it was actually me or not, but after she smelled me for a few seconds she freaked out and i've never seen her so excited before. and then i walked into the living room and my cat just started staring right at me and i was expecting him to be ambivalent about me coming home but he was so happy he just started purring right away and wouldn't stop trying to snuggle me and rolling all over me. so many tears. he's been really excited too and keeps running around and playing with his toys and my mom said he hasn't been that energetic so idk i'm excited my cat was excited to see me because i love him more than anything

OH and then my parents told me we're getting a puppy!!! apparently luna has just been super depressed since my other dog died and she's getting worse and worse, it was about 6 months ago and she's still not over it, so we're just getting another dog to make her happy again hopefully.

Spoiler: show
i know introducing a dog doesn't seem like it would help, but Luna is a super submissive and low confidence dog and since Sunny died she's stopped playing at the dog park and doesn't like to go for walks or even go outside. she's been doing nothing but sleeping for 6 months. she's just really anxious and i think she needs a dog that can either teach her some sort of ~confidence~ just through interacting with a puppy, or the dog we're looking at is a lab x rottweiler so she should be real headstrong and confident and just be a rock for Luna because my parents have tried EVERYTHING to make her happy but she literally mopes all day long.


all in all an awesome day. walking into my yard and smelling nothing but flowers, trees, and grass was SUPER refreshing considering the city never smells nice.

I've been home since Monday its been so nice!
Had a busy week though, moved and packed all my stuff on Monday and was working Tuesday and Wednesday so I didn't really have a proper bed day until Thursday. I'm working in the deli at hone which is a bit crap so far tbh but I'm getting a few more hours so hopefully I'll get lots of pennies.
I also managed to pass my driving theory test too!! Just sort of did it again as mine had expired and uni was done so lmao. I've been told that I should go for automatic but gears weren't ever a problem for me??? I get that it's one less thing to worry about but then if I ever want to drive manual then I'd have to do another test. Plus the fact there's like 2 maybe 3 auto instructors here? All my fails were to do with things unrelated to gears anyway. I think I just need a new instructor and to just go for it.
Only thing now is to get word back on this flat ugh I wish she would let us know either way and then I can Finally Relax.

 I've almost finished revising the first half of the powerpoints for Monday's exams but I can briefly read over the new stuff tomorrow and catch some Zs for the morning! Also got a lift sorted so I don't have to get up at 6am and rush through all the buses.

 Also set up a Twitter. Blasting through my last four minutes before I have to do my last sprint to get P1 done.


 Edit: Totally just read through the slides instead of re-writing them all. Finished P1, I'll probably read P2 a few times tomorrow. Might play on the Playstation tonight as a treat since I've kept this up all week.

 On the plus side, I'll have two weeks to revise for my next exam so I can still fit in the gym and have real down time. Actually, really looking forward to the additional revision time since I missed out on a week of revision for this.

bought me a braun silk epil 5 and epilated me legs for the summer cos i am gonna try to Get Outside and in order to do that i gotta have Personally Acceptable Legs and the only acceptable thing is tearing those little gits out by the root. i know thats Unfeminist of me or w/e but i just can't stand leg hair on me. coarse. rough. irritating. gets everywhere. everyone else is free to have it but personally, not me. on winter i keep it cos Winter Coat but during summer its gone.

also its like how swimmers shave for "reducing friction coefficient" showin off and getting leered at by weird horny people except with my kickin thighs from the squats i been doin. people will look and be like "aah! id better not anger her! she will crush my balls in her vicelike thigh grip"


hurt a lot less overall than i thought it was gonna tbh! and like the weightliftin once you get past a point the beta endorphins kick in and its all bliss high sailing from there. feels good man.

aaaaa sorry, it was the DOMS pain. i don't tend to get pain during the lifting unless i have rly bad form i.e. forget to drive from the heels on deadlifts and squats and/or have been disregarding my body spazitude i.e. sitting on one leg all day to alleviate the Awkward Feeling in my legs

i'm pretty sure i have the job. the interview went fantastic. i dressed in a button up white shirt and a black pantsuit and i honestly looked like i was supposed to be my boss's boss

i have a second interview with the woman who is hooked up to corporate tomorrow at 10 am, but he said i basically have the job, he just likes to have the second person look me over since they're both pretty much in equal control of the franchise

i went in for a sales position and he ended up giving me the marketing coordinator position which is like... better so im pretty hyped about that

also i'm literally going to get the kind of salary here (given i get the job) that people get who own their own houses. i mean im just gonna use it for student loans but seriously. the fact that i pretty much have a job as a marketing coordinator for a franchise of a huge security company and i've only completed 2 years of school is AWESOME.

god tell me bout it, leg day (squats + rows) is up next and UGH i hate leg day but if i dont do leg day im gonna end up all Inverted Triangle shaped. and when i actually go to lift something with my legs like a big sack o compost at the shop or w/e i'll end up Roll Of Shameing the compost across my suddenly floored body or something 






on the plus side it was hard work but i think the protein/creatine paid off cos i finally caught up post-illness and beat my All Time Best? (7x24 deadlift which replaces previous best 7x22 deadlift, incline pushups still slaying me tho. im doing some "6 reps of heaviest weight before losing form" thing and try to One More Rep it a lot) so thats a plus. was worried i'd reached my first Plateau and i'd have to get all Zen about it and be okay with maxing out for a bunch of weeks until i finally broke 6x22 but yeh! p sure the protein+creatine didn't not help, (intentional double negative)

 It's one of the cut throat ones! I wanted to get one of the ones where you insert the blade though since you can buy a box of like 20 and they're cheap as chips aha. Aye, it's a cut throat razor tho.

so yes thank you for being my co-conspirator in the protein+creatine affair cos boy did it help better than the ASDA now-discontinued slim fast stuff 

 It's not going to be long until we're smuggling creatine into other countries to help people make gainz.




 Managed to get down to the gym today to do chest, arms, and shoulders (since I can't train legs atm) smashed some cardio in there to help with the weight loss since I want to get down to 16 stone by the end of summer since I've piled on the weight lmao. Would ideally get down to 15/14 by Christmas so I can get some sort of an idea as to what needs work and what I want to do. Even had a vegan-y breakfast that was evened out with a diddy steak and rice lol. The steaks are only £1 here atm so I'm making the best out of it even though it could be stray or horse.

 Decided to try and achieve some fine aesthetics instead of just getting really strong. Might have to go down tomorrow to get some cardio in along with accessories and back n core stuff but idk neither of them are fun but people look weird when they have everything but abs.

 Hammered out some revision tonight since I woke up at about 3 or 4pm today. Really annoyed that I slept for so long since I should have been finished with that bit of revision today. Can maybe finish it all tomorrow and have Thursday to read through the textbook and review my notes before sleep.

 I also found my 3DS today and in an act of reminiscence I booted up Pokemon X and I might get Alpha Sapphire - since Sapphire was the game I chose all those years ago despite my favourite colour being red - but I'm on the fence at the moment since that was probably my least favourite gen. Idk.

After using cheat codes, I FINALLY got a Latios! This almost brought an end to the entire hoenn, as all the Pokemon in the world had been turned into a Latios! Turning off the cheat codes did nothing. So I went to Southern island in search of Latias. It was only Latias that could free the hoenn from the invasion of Latios. Once caught, Latias purified the hoenn and all the Pokemon were back to normal.

I swore never to use cheat code again, no matter how impatient I get.

The end.

Won another draft league battle because of hax mainly. Entei burned a lot of stuff and disrupted the other team before it died. Piloswine splashed some damage, but Bisharp was the mvp. It came in, SD'd and dodged dragon tail, then beat the remain 4 mons with 1 hit, and got an extra +1 from an intimidate mon.

 Hammered out my revision and managed to see that new X-Men film.

 Not much revision left so I'm hoping to finish it around 6pm tomorrow and using the last few hours to read over things before my 9am exam on Friday.

 Actually did okay with my lab report which is nice since until now, I've been statistically inept illiterate but it feels as if I've grasped the foundations of it and can only get better from here! Really hoping that if I get onto 2nd year, that we get better coursework questions since this year has been pretty crap tbh and out of a choice of about 4 topics I've only had vague interest in one topic once out of the four papers we've done.

 Managed to use the straight razor and not cut myself up as bad although I'm still holding up on doing my upper lip until I get the proper cream and stuff so I'm also using a safety razor to neaten up. So far I've cut my face multiple times, I've cut my finger, and I keep cutting where my earlobe connects to my head.

 Went ahead and ordered AS with the hopes of maybe completing the dex by the time S&M (oioi) comes out? Might exclude legendaries for ease since they're often impossible to get unless you have a level 2 Charizard.

 Revision is over for tomorrow's exam and I feel okay about it. I'll have to have a quick read through my textbook but I think I have the basics down and can easily get that 45%. The exam itself starts at 9:30am so I'm getting up at 6:30 and hoping for the best. Would usually spend the next few hours cramming but, honestly, that stress made me so ill with my A-Levels and I feel fairly confident even though I'll be ill in the morning.

 Stumbled through Alpha Sapphire and I'm at Rustboro. The game is really charming and all the little references are really nice.

 So I'm between 15 and 20 hours into Alpha Sapphire and I'm at the point where you have to go to Mt Pyre. My very first encounter in Mt Pyre was a shiny Duskull which I caught after almost having a seizure because my last proper shiny was in Sapphire about 10 years ago.
 
 So aside from that, I'm finally feeling like there's less stress and despite the nightmares I'm generally more relaxed. Might boot up Fallout 4 and try out that survival mode although it could be really cheesy. Actually downloaded the last two DLCs for it so I've had fun even though I'm finding Far Harbour to be quite difficult.


 Hoping to start volunteering again on Thursday since I miss it and I took time off for revision so I haven't been for what feels like ages. Will probably try looking for actual work once I've had a week or two since I want to get over all the stress and let the nightmares subside.

feelin on the better end of a particularly bad brain mishap, feels good man. euthymia is hella fleeting at the best of times in braine problems but its p legit.  may be catching Festival Flu off me partner tho but at least i get to give the old Cold Remedies a good workout

(euthymia is that weird "not overly sad not overly ott happy. small post-storm calm." feeling you sometimes get after vague mental crises.)

It's one of the cut throat ones! I wanted to get one of the ones where you insert the blade though since you can buy a box of like 20 and they're cheap as chips aha. Aye, it's a cut throat razor tho.


oh maaaaan those are cool ones cos you never have to actually buy a razor blade again if you got a strop and a stone. i luv them on thrift concepts but im one of those Not Allowed To Play With Sharp Objects people cos im so dang clumsy. so i am strictly on the safety double edge razors (merkur HD, personna platinum blues after a lot of experimenting) for stuff that doesn't like the epilator or the trimmer cos LORDY ME the prices on the current cartridge razors (venus, mach 6 or w/e) in the market. no way.

i also uh cos i luv the whole nerdlord Processes i also got a super badger brush and olde style shavin soap cos sod lettin a bunch of hipsters have all the fun. wet shaving culture is still extremely Gendered which is a shame but sod it tbh. i luv taylor of old bond street's sandalwood and DH Harris's Marlborough atm most of all tho. (i apologise for spergin out a little here tho cos its one of my incredibly stupid Nerd Passions)

do u dabble in all the weird shavin soap stuff????

Leg day is fantastic tho! Really wanted to incorperate sumo squats and calf raises for the glootz and calves but ehhh. Which grip do you use for deadlifts?

honestly i said before that i thought i hated leg day but man i broke both my previous plateus on leg day and managed to get up from a random squat (tryina not bend over so much to attention things below elbow level for a bunch of reasons) w/o it bein a trouble and was like, hell yea. feels good man. maybe leg day isn't so bad after all???? the day after leg day is bad but the benefits that squats and their ilk bring are just too good tbh.

my grip is uh.....well im not sure haha. im still on Water Bottles In Strong Shopping Bags until they either break from too much weight or i pass 25kg on all my exercises, THEN ill be able to buy a barbell and all that exciting stuff. i think i am double overhand tho? the palms facing towards you one.

Well done breh! That's pretty awesome tho, creatine is pretty swanky too, did you get a flavoured one? 6x22 is hella good too

aww, thank u (  ´‿ `)  彡☆ i got the unflavoured ones cos i tend to mix them up in me morning smoothie (jar of kefir + frozen fruits and a chopped banana) and it'd probably end up makin some weird bizarro mint n coffee n forest fruits concotion otherwise.

i usually mix up Crusha for post workout protein/creatine + milk but crusha is hella expensive for what it is so im lookin into makin my own milk flavouring syrups i think. i am a weird nerdlord who prefers flavouring on my end (also there were diehards going on about how unflavoured = overall more protein so either way its a plus)

any flavours you partic like??

 I legit have the Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandlewood cream! It came the other week so it's fuming out the bathroom with those barber shop smells aha. My brush is from PoundLand though so it's probably 95% synthetic bristles, 3% boar bum bristles and 2% bum hair from Steve who works in packaging. I have an alum block if that helps? They're pretty cool and handy since it's easier than using aftershave lotion.

 Leg day is always really fun when the doms comes and it hurts to sit on the toilet or stand back up or climb upstairs aha, kinda gutted that my knees are bad since I'm gonna have to find other ways to train them lol. Double overhand is totally cool though, there was a montage of gym fails or something and one guy tore his bicep from doing the mixed grip thing with deadlifts but that usually happens if you go too hard lol.

 
any flavours you partic like??

 The DIY shakes are totally cool aha! Would Ice-Cream syrup work or would it just rot your teeth?

 I find Chocolate to be the safest flavour in general since it's really hard to mess that up but Sticky Toffee Pudding from MyProtein tasted supreme but then it was left on the microwave and it went bad and clumpy... Tried Vanilla once but it tasted very bad and it was awkward to drink when mixed with water once I realised that it looked like love juice and it made it 1000 times worse lmao.

 All of our customers would be swole as fuarq but we could totally cure the obesity problem if everyone became huge, strong, and scary! PLUS there could be a rebellion against David Cameron and he can't lift because he doesn't have a back-bone or anything so we'll be able to get a better government of gains where all the wars are solved by spiking their creatine with viagra or something so they're too embarrassed to fight back.





 Totally got a shiny Snivy and a shiny Dialga last night on Wonder Trade. 100% hacked since Dialga shouldn't be level 5 and Snivy has Pokerus and perfect IVs BUT it's Pokedex filler for when I finish grinding for the Elite 4 since I've 100% relied on Sceptile and Dustox and both of them would get rekt by at least 3 of the Elite 4, including the champ.

 Still trying to figure out a GTS economy sort of thing since I'm really late so I can't trade non-native starters for the lower-tier legendaries and trade up and this "LEGENDARY EVERY MONTH c:" business means that the value of legendaries will probably go down too.

I'm usually not a fan of superhero movies because I always feel like (even while I'm watching it) that the entire purpose of the film is just like money-grabbing because there never seems to be much care taken in like the writing and plotting, no matter how convincing the VFX are.

Anyway, a few people have told me (over the years), that I should watch the Batman films - the Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan ones - and last night I finally took the plunge and marathoned them.

I really, REALLY, loved them. Too much. I'm watching them again tonight. They were just SO well made. Oh. My. God.

 Twenty One Pilots have a new song out - it's really good btw - and it's times like these that I'm really chuffed that I got the majority of friends into them since it was a friend who told me about the new song. Gutted that she's seeing them play before me aha.

today i was chilling at work doing nothing per the us', and then my boss came over and pulled up a chair and said, "so, update me on what exactly you've done today" heart skips a beat, i'm like CRAP i've done absolutely nothing so then i started talking to him about the few things i did do (maximum of 2 hours work out of my 8 hour shift), and he just looks at me shocked and then says "wow you've done a lot today, you had a really productive day i see"

like idk man if nothing else this job has opened my eyes about how badly we need the minimum wage raised because i get paid more than twice the minimum wage to do ACTUALLY nothing and i can vividly remember being 16 and busting my ass at a panera bread for $7.50, doing 3 people's jobs, busy constantly and getting yelled at multiple times a day from either customers or management... and here i am sitting at my desk in my cozy office chair next to the window browsing the internet for money, occasionally writing some articles and doing some marketing maintenance stuff but like......................... it's kinda messed up

I just started playing sapphire and one of my Pokemon obviously had pokerus because all my Pokemon are infected. Apparently, it's a good thing?
Title: Re: Everyday Accomplishments
Post by: Rum Ham on June 26, 2016, 19:32
 Pokerus is fantastic since it increases EVs or something so your infected pokemon will excel with their stats whilst infecteddd.


 Went to run a bath and there was a spider laying in a wet patch so I though "let's just scoop this badboi out". So I went to scoop it up with a bottle lid and it tucked its legs in so I got my gym card and gave it a little push onto the card since it was in that classic dead spider position and it started moving!

 Tried letting it off on the windowsill but it immediately went towards another web where it was attacked so after separating the two spiders, I let it on my hand where it brushed off the dust or web or whatever was on it before letting it go outside.

 Lmao should bench 60kg tomorrow or Wednesday since I started again and stopped using pre-workouts and creatine.

 If I can't do 60kg tomorrow, I should be doing 70kg by next Wednesday.

 If you get around to the games with wonder trade, you'll sometimes get a pokemon with pokerus to sweeten the deal! Actually got a shiny Hariyama called "Majin Boo" a week ago lol. Obviously hacked but it made me smile.



 Managed to bench 60kg today for reps! I'm hoping to hit 70kg by Friday and start on the road to 100kg next week which is pretty exciting in itself since I want to hit 100kg in August. It's just nice to see progression in something that I'm fairly passionate about.

 I didn't hit my predicted lifts but I went on and had the best workout in a long time since it pushed me to try harder and to try something else. It was a really good session, anyway. Actually worked about three times as hard as I've ever done before. Pushed myself until the bar was a challenge to lift, made me feel like a noob again and got that humble pie as I struggled to bench 40kg for my last rep. It was nice.

Got back from the US yesterday, I had such an amazing time!
Honestly still can't believe I actually traveled by myself. Saw so much bucket list worthy stuff in the space of a week and got to know so many people who I'd never have met otherwise. I was surprised that there were so many in groups lol I assumed everyone would be single travelers. Despite that I got on with almost everyone except for this hippy dippy older English woman who seemed to have something against me???
I'm incredibly jetlagged though lmao but thankfully I'm not back at work until Sunday so I've got a few more days to recover. I left San Francisco at 9.45pm their time on Monday night and finally got into bed at midnight last night so it basically feels I've I've been hit by a bus.

 Tried switching up the routine in the gym so I guess I'm doing drop-sets with my main compounds. It's nice since I'm feeling something now because I'm doing 3x5 3 times starting from my highest comfortable lift and dropping down 10kg every time I finish my sets on one weight but that's just my bench since my OHP is quite bad lol. Trying to progress with micro plates so I'm increasing by 2.5kg per session rather than 5kg. Hoping to use next week to go back to normal sets and hopefully progress with lifts tbh but I'm struggling with diet atm since there's less protein than usual coming in lol.

I just beat the grass type gym in Pokemon blue USING ONLY MY IVYSAUR!!!

After victreebel (lvl29) defeated my newly-caught doduo l(vl24) and rattata (lvl20) I sent out ivysaur, thinking it would take a little longer for grass types to kill a grass type.

Ivysaur's moveset is tackle, poisonpowder, leech seed and vine whip

I had to keep spamming tackle, because poisonpowder wouldn't work, leech seed and vine whip are not very effective.

Doduo had taken out most of victreebel's HP. Even using a super potion didn't stop me! Victreebel kept spamming poisonpowder (no effect) I took out victreebel, tangela (who spammed constrict) and vileplume (kept using poisonpowder)

EDIT: I think I used all of tackle's PP for that battle! Lol

Battling wattson in ruby. Using my marshtomp, I beat his magnemite (spamming mud slap) It used sonicboom and lowered marshtomp's HP to 6. Next, Voltorb. The main reason for this post. I hit it with mud slap and it uses self destruct. I thought it hit and marshtomp was doomed! But I didn't know that self destruct's animation still played even if it misses. Thank god for that! Then Magneton. Straight away (before me) used sonicboom, but missed. Hit it with mud slap (and lowered accuracy) it tried sonicboom again, missed. I killed it with one last mud slap. VICTORY!!!

If marshtomp died, I'd send out makuhita. I'm sure magnemite/Magneton are weak to fighting. I think. Are they?

I once had this guy (bad guy) who got in close enough to me (was distracted while dodging a grenade thrown at me) to physically attack me, so I was firing wildly around (with a handgun) at one point, he was in front of me (I could see him) and I'm firing as fast as I can with a handgun and he's dying!

I'd like to start running so I figured that I might as well start the C25K routine aha.

I actually wrote today for the first time in ages and, as an added bonus, it wasn't terrible. (At least, for now it isn't terrible. Lord knows that I'll look back on it in about a month and think it's the worst thing I've ever seen. But still, progress!)

ive also been working on some writing. the chapter im currently writing is a bit of a filler chapter, with lots of fluff as the team gets to learn about each other more. i've also put some writing aside ready for the time travel chapters. mainly dialogue and small snippets.

still thinking about that pokemon contest one i wanted to do, but i might hold it off until i've gotten a few more chapters on the teen titans one. i'm in three chapters and around 8k words, so once i break 10k i think ill be golden for a little break. essentially its going to be like a path to fame sort of thing - dealing with being a celebrity, etc, etc. it'll (hopefully) be a bit less bleak than the teen titans one though!

Started to battle back the anxiety that i've been having by getting more sunlight, distracting myself, and writing a nightly journal to get my thoughts on paper to help me sort through them.

Also bought christmas presents via amazon with a lot of the money I got from work last pay, as well as a cute little arctic fox plushie for myself (hey, don't judge me, 20 bucks well spent imo).

So proud of everything I've achieved to get here - I've made countless new friends, raised £3000 for charity, lost an entire stone in weight during training, improved my health in general, and just genuinely grown as a person & changed the way people see me.

Honestly best decision ever. Now I get to reap the rewards so yeah, bring it on world.

 Went out tonight and had the first good night since forever. I might be a little drunk at the moment? I put way to much effort into my typing/texting for people to tell anyway.

 Totally had a blast though. We really needed to unwind and now we might have planned a week filled with activities but the person who came up with the idea to go bowling was totally drunk and slurring their words so they weren't even allowed into Spoons which is hilarious considering where we are since it's really rough around here.

 Wish I could be edgy or something but a good night out is an accomplishment tbh so I'm proper chuffed rn.

Anytime I kill a Nazi storm elite in medal of honour airborne feels like a real accomplishment! Those guys have amour under their uniform, making them hard to kill. But just now, I did the (what I thought was) impossible! I killed him with a handgun!

My rapid firing gun was out of ammo and without that, it was very hard to kill the guy. I had grenades, but probably lacked the accuracy (and plus, it was risky!) I used my handgun (it had a higher rate of fire) and while trying to complete an objective, I saw him again. I took some shots at him (I hit the front of him. Then he turned round. I shot him in the back a few times and he died.

So my question is this:

Is his back his weakest point? Or are there other weak points?

I found every single episode of Something Special (Mr Tumble) today. I can finally learn more sign language so I can talk to my friend.

is makaton the de facto standard for communication impaired folks? been wanting to pick up a visual flailing language and sadly not quite in the right place yet for finding out myself (me current care commitments are in the chronic progressive/minimally mobile sector of things rn basically and ive got a lot of work to do until i get to the PDD end of things)




like i know how to say "bad" (little finger) and "poop in pants" (kinda clench your hand toward your chest  and jerk it away from u while makin a grimace n open the hand slightly) in makaton and thats it so far. its all im gonna need if i go soft(er) in the noggin tbh

edit: so apparently its just a fork of BSL???? neato. i did the whole ASL????? BSL????? thing for a good while but makaton is apparently Big in the autism community so makaton/BSL family w ISWA notation (i just like it somehow its kinda cute) it is


well this was my sign language carepost, hope everyone enjoyed it. please remember to like, comment, and subscribe,.

Things are up and down but a few positives from today and yesterday:

- Had a really good talk with my lecturer today. He's excited about one of my projects and he just said not to get too stressed. He totally understood that after working at your job you cba to do anything, he told me not to do uni stuff past a certain time and that even things like watching relevant films can count as work! Also said not to do the impossible like 10hrs worth of work in an hour lmao.

- Got some money from my aunties and granny today, it's nice that despite everything that's going on right now that they still look out for me. Going to treat myself to new shoes and a jacket and then save the rest I think.

I was playing pokemon yellow. I was in victory Road. I'm trying to find the exit. Then I see this bird shaped character on the screen. I didn't know what to think about it at first. I thought it might have been a trainer in disguise. Then I thought it was bait to lure me in the sight of a trainer. I then pressed A next to the bird. I thought it was a Fearow. But IT WAS A MOLTRES!!! What's moltres doing in victory Road???

^I kept on commenting in this way for a few moments.

Luckily I had a master ball! I caught it and named it phoenix

I take it this is your first play through of the Gen 1 games. Moltres was innn Viictory Road originally and moved in Gen 3 when GF added the Sevii Islands. It was added to Mt Silver in HGSS but was unavailable in Gen 2

 Started the Instagram stuff again and it's going pretty swell. Going to take a picture of the scales each Monday this month and see how much weight I lose. Hoping to post it on there at the end of each month since I'll be able to take the pictures off to document everything if I lose the weight.

 Uni started up too, so that's fun. Everyone's recovering from hangovers and/or freshers flu so it's going to be a slow week.

 The new protein powder came today. It's chocolate mint so it'll be hit or miss, could say it'll be mint but unless you can imagine me with a cap on, trousers tucked into my socks, and on someone elses BMX, it doesn't do the trick. The bag's huge? I didn't realise how much I ordered but I can't really put it away anywhere so it's just watching me atm.

They deserve a good smack to be honest because they're edgy teenagers trying to get a rise from everyone and it's annoying.

 Throat hurts but I can't take anything because of the alcohol in my system.

I was playing Competitive Overwatch today and we were 2-0 up, and the timer was like, 2 seconds left. The enemy made a push, and I noticed a Genji slip past our defenses with low health. I abandoned my post as Mercy, turned around, and executed the poor guy as he landed on the point and got his team overtime. Then we got a team kill.

Not today, Genji. Not today.

Title: Re: Everyday Accomplishments
Post by: Poison2007 on December 09, 2016, 15:28
probs. if you leave it just unloads so you're ok (re: glitch city).

all missingno does is duplicate one of your items a lot. leveling him up can evolve him into a rhydon of all things (i think? but it definitely evolves if you make it loop around from 255). some glitch pokemon can ruin the game, but some are harmless. now, interestingly, the name you give the player can detirmine this, but its only if you use weird special characters for the name or something.
Title: Re: Everyday Accomplishments
Post by: The name master on December 09, 2016, 15:47
My missingno was lvl 32 (9800 exp to next level) battled one pokemon, gained less than 9800 exp and leveled up to 100!

I think I gave my player it's default name (Red or Blue, can't remember which)

I got missingno in it's "normal form"

(http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/pokemonzetaomicron/images/6/6c/657.png/revision/latest?cb=20140430200233)

Doesn't it dupilcate the 6th item in the bag? I got the coin case in there so nothing happened if that's the case!

My missingno flips and screws up sprites!

It flips and screws up the player's sprite in a battle. It flips the opponent's pokemon sprite round and screws up when you attack it. The opponent trainer's sprite is screwed up after the battle is won.

My missingno's moveset:

Water Gun
Water Gun

I've been watching the Matt Smith episodes of Doctor Who recently. I'm starting to like him a bit more than I used to. I used to not like Matt Smith much. Now I think I know why.

I found the style of story writing in the Matt Smith episodes to be a little too different from that of the David Tennant episodes. I've discovered that the reason for that is because the writers and producers of the series changed after David Tennant left. I didn't have much of an opinion on the early Matt Smith episodes, but the later ones are much better.

I need to get my back and neck checked now, as I was told that I may have a trapped nerve somewhere which could be causing the problem.

This is why I go to a chiropractor. Because of my asthma I sleep in a certain way that just messes my back/hips and neck up.

reluctantly havin to Take It Easy cos this cold is kickin my ass somehow and also this is the first one to actually go for my lungs hardcore but all this time in bed did allow me to (spoiler tag'd for those sun/moon players who haven't post-game content'd yet, also long and boring)

Spoiler: show
(http://i.imgur.com/7qe9jpHl.jpg)

i caught the rainbowgoth aliens (as in the sci fi horror thriller aliens) ripoff yesterday but that was after exhausting literally every pokeball i had and then having to commit the shame of using my Master Ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and after the first decent nights sleep ive had since getting this lousy cold i woke up this morning and couldnt go on with the shame and luckily hadn't saved so i soft-resetted, rebattled, took a xurtitree with hypnosis this time because whoops paralysis is a rubbish status modifier for catch rate unlike sleep, and then recaught it in a luxury ball on the 3rd try (somehow)

thats also why the luxury ball is in the focal point of the photo cos im not really that patient a player to autismically obtain, select and catch pokemon in matching pokeballs but Just Once when it mattered i was able to catch this idiot in a black spiky fancy lookin ball like i wanted

hes probably gonna be the zygarde of gen VII i.e. ripe for story potential but ignored in favour of some other legendary i.e. tapu koko all such as rubbing his nipples for 3 whole films really boringly. oh no we cant do any plot about the third legendary cos we need to talk about magearna some more. and a small cameo by necrozma for like 3 seconds but oh no gen VIII is out now on the New! nintendo switch XL+ Maxi Absorption!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


sorry i am really bitter about how magearna/volcanion and hoopa and diancie all got films entirely about them but zygarde got like a handful of anime episodes and a "who cares" collect side-mission and a shrug 





oh also as far as UBs go celesteela is my big fat lovely steel wife and i love her

anyway this was my post thanks for reading

So our flat got bored of Ring of Fire (aka King's Cup, I know a lot of Americans call it that), and we've made our own drinking board game and it's beautiful, like there's fairy lights on the board and everything. Like every space is a different drinking thing (like we have one where you play Jenga and each block has like "Drink for x seconds" or "everyone with a red shirt drinks" written on, another one is like you have a sing off and the loser drinks for 15 seconds). We're playing tomorrow for the first time and I'm unreasonably excited lmao.

When I was at Uni I think we played Ring of Fire like 3 times and then got bored because it was too much set up and not enough pay off until the end. We ended up creating our own Deal or No Deal spin off called Drink or No Drink, where all the slips would have drinking values, and the other players would make a cash out offer after a certain amount of picks, and you either drink that or carry on the next round until you end up with whatever slip you originally picked. Was a fantastic game.

Ring of Fire was more that every time someone had to drink the middle they just died haha, and we've like played it to death. That sounds pretty fun though, sounds like the sort of game that gets harder the more you've had though :') We play one which I think is fairly common but I can't post the name, where you lay cards in a pyramid and each person gets a hand, and you flip the first one over and choose someone to drink that many seconds (so if it's a 7, they drink for 7), unless another person puts the same card down and it adds up sort of thing, but we play with like 2/3 decks of cards, so it gets silly and like 80-120 seconds lmao.

I only played that like twice, only knew it as Pyramid lmao. The main ones we played with cards were Down the River and Red or Black (guess if it's red or black, if you're wrong you drink). Then when the girls wanted to play I Have Never we'd leave them to it and we'd just play Arrogance.

I hate Never Have I Ever (I assume that's the game) - it's always the same people drinking everytime and I'll like just sort of drink because I want some of my drink and everyone's like "Oh my god you did that???" and I'm like no I was thirsty. Arrogance sounds really cool though, just googled it, I'd probably play with something more skill based than flipping a coin tho, just to fit the arrogance theme better.

yeah everywhere else seems to call it Never Have I Ever but I've never known it as that so it sounds really dumb to me. We always would do coin flip stuff because it's quick and the lack of skill means you can only luck your way out (which can happen but not guaranteed). If we didn't have a coin lying about we'd always use a spare Budweiser lid (which also spawned the successful game of Bud or Cap) since there'd always be one lying about.

We always played Arrogance with a jug rather than a glass too which in hindsight was not a good idea whatsoever.

Revision's going swell at the moment. Hoping to finish off the second third today whilst touching up half of this assignment. It might not be accepted if I can't get an extension but it's a learning experience and I'm getting used to easing the reader into the lab report rather than dropping them in the deep end.

 Hoping to jam-pack my timetable with experiments throughout the next few months. Not looking forward to it in the slightest since I'll end up taking my fair share of electric shocks. You can generally tell when you're in the control group once you've been shocked 5 times in a row.


A good bulk of the experiments revolve around conditioning fear into the participant. The unconditioned stimulus is always an electric shock and the conditioned stimulus is usually something obscure. You then associate the obscurity with the pain and get anxious when it comes up. If you're not the control group, you'll be able to cancel the shock by pressing something - usually the space bar.

 The experiments are usually exactly the same except for the conditioned stimulus. Not even sure if anything I said was the correct wording either lol.

also for the first time in about a million million years i got a winning streak of like 13 or something in the Super Singles in the battle tree w my fabbo team katarna/female incineroar/male primarina before falling afoul to a thrash/persim berry braviary (always pack a fast ghost type anti-spinner, folks!) but it felt Good to lose for once instead of doing what i usually do which is run away from the battle tree while yelling I HATE THIS STUPID GAME and not playing pokemon at all for a week or so.

In the level Hall Of Hieroglyphics, the switch is near the beginning and forces you to press it so you have a limited time to do the level! In the first level of the emerald passage, the switch is directly below the portal, forcing you to press it!

And you start off with one heart!

Got a little way to go before my lecture tomorrow but should finish it with an extra hour of reading time

Not bad, eh? The trousers are slightly the wrong colour, but there wasn't much I could do about that.
I take that back, I fixed the trousers.

I'm going to see if I can make a Catherine Tate/Donna Noble sim next!

 So I love tuna and I decided to try something else with it since I only really used to mix it with cottage cheese before.

 It goes so well with pickled beetroot. Like, two of the beetroots, a can of tuna (for the protein obvs), and half an avocado only racked up 288 calories. Macro-wise, it's 41% protein, 41% fat, and 18% carbohydrates. Not happy with that amount of fat tho but I don't like avocados (it comes from the avocado) so lol - fortunately it's the good fats tho - 28g of protein tho aha.

 Sorry for nerding out like that aha, it's just super neat to be able to take apart what I'm eating and check all the little numbers and tweak em and stuff to fit what I want.

I dont remember much of that zone, tbf. I just remember the anger, plus a lot of exploring like one individual platform to death because i knew i always died at the next bit and i was putting it off for as long as possible, and then just giving up and replaying the first world to feel some sense of happiness again.

Suddenly tempted to plug in my old gamecube and give that game another bash, just to see if my added years of platforming experience will have made it any easier.

Destroyed my first spawner in Minecraft (survival) It was a zombie spawner.

I just happen to come across it, I could hear the zombies somewhere, then I glanced at a cave guessing they were in there, when I saw a glowing object inside. I wanted to take  closer look, when a whole swarm of zombie walked towards me. Luckily, there was a block acting as a barrier, preventing their escape. I tried to kill them all, but it was taking ages, so I though it would be a good idea (the stupid idiot that I am!) to destroy the barrier and let them out, so they could get out an chase me, then I could lose them and go in the cave. But they swarmed me and killed me. I was back at my partially destroyed house (damn you creepers!) I went back and dug a hole from above and killed the zombies with daylight. I noticed there were two chests. Once all the zombies died, I went to the chest to steal all the stuff! The were stuff I've never had! Iron Ingots, Gunpowder, Redstone, etc.I was in the middle of transfer all this to my inventory, when a zombie came out the back of the cave and attacked me. I killed it, then a zombie appeared out of nowhere (damn you, spawner!) scaring the crap out of me and killed me. I went back a third time and destroyed the spawner (so slow with the hand!) and got all my items back!

So does this mean no more zombies in survival for me?

some amount of saturated fat in a diet is really important for your brain health folks!!!!!!! and your gut health too. coconut has a bunch of triglycerides which are like manna for your gut microflorae and that bunch of yahoos is whats partly keepin u alive so give them a nice panang or massaman curry once in a while

 Achos you need an acoustic to approach cuties  and start strumming away to some random song (Chasing Cars, Wonderwall, Own Song) whilst making awkward eye contact with the  one with less self-esteem as you call her "bay-beh" and furiously vape some vanilla-scented uncool at her (Fedora, et al., 2017).

 They're just kinda cool despite being unable to get at anything after the 15th fret. I like the sound and stuff, it's pretty neat.

 
in any case welcome to the darkside brother. learn pinch harmonics (i could never get them) and palm muted chords and ur all set

 Defo gan' give pinch harmonics ago since they sound cool AS HECK so defo. Thanks breh, may we rock in heaven or simultaneously vape and tip our fedoras (with our fingerless gloves) in whatever happens once we die.


 Not as suave as I thought I was with the quoting like ngl.

I'm at my aunt's house visiting my cousins. I didn't bring my laptop with me, so I'm using my 3DS to type this post instead.

If that isn't an accomplishment, I don't know what is!

^Considering how weird the browser and typing on those things are i'd consider it an accomplishment.

Because of some creative thinking, my mom was able to claim a federal tax refund of over 800 bucks. The rent we collected from the 3 sets of roommates (before one stole silverware/plateware and other things, another took a 3000 loan from my mom for their overblown wedding and then left, and the last one who moved in with us and changed her mind and moved back with her mom (last one is really cool so no qualms with her)) was legally allowed to be counted as misc. income and wasn't flagged. So hooray for being ripped off by everyone.

In other news I bought so much healthy food today and I'm quite proud of myself but am I even gonna get the chance to cook??? I'm on a 4 day bender this week and I'm quite worried about my health

*adult hat on* honestly if you haven't already i'd recommend getting a slow cooker! Mine was about £25 on Amazon and it's pretty great.
Don't know how hungover/able to look at food you'll be but a lot of recipes you can just fire everything in and cook it for like 8hrs and you end up with food with minimal effort! Also good when not hungover and not having to cook after uni.

I managed to make a little augmented reality thing for my project!!

I second this motion. My mom has made it her mission to make sure we don't fail at adulting when we're shoved out the nest and she preaches that the slow cooker/crockpot is a lifesaver. For the most part it's idiot proof and requires almost no effort, plus you can even make dessert in it if you so wish.

Started trying to make amends with someone I fell out with a few years ago. Like, the fall out was basically my fault but until recently it was one of those "deny all responsibility" type things, but now I feel like I've at least tried to apologise and make amends, so if they don't then that's on them, at least I can honestly say I've done my best.

 Man, I've been itching to get back into collecting cards again. Actually found a bunch of Pokemon cards in an old tin which brought back so many memories to look through them.

 I put the three remaining shinies into sleeves. Don't really know what's going to happen with the rest? Might go through and sleeve any card that isn't a duplicate?

 These cards were my childhood, man. Pokemon and YuGiOh were my bread and butter.

 Might actually pick up a booster pack for nostalgia's sake.

I bought a copy of FR yesterday with my birthday money. I started a new game as the saved file on it had some pretty obvious hacked Pokémon, particularly Mew. I sent it out against a wild Pidgey just to see how it would refuse to obey me just once before making it go bye bye forever. Better that way because the Espeon saved in the same file said that it was met on Route 3 at level 4.

Eldritch Moon artwork in Magic was all pretty amazing tbf, idk if you've seen Brisela, Voice of Nightmares but its the creepiest thing ever hahaha. Triskaidekaphobia in the set before its pretty cool too, the artist managed to fit so many 13s into the artwork its crazy (For reference, there's 13 blood drips on the wall, logs on the fire, utensils hanging from the ceiling, planks of wood on the walls, planks of wood on the ceiling, shards of glass on the floor, stones on the fires arch, stones on the fires front face, metal lumps on the keg. Probably 3 more I'm missing, as that's 10 and at that point the artist may as well have made it 13 13's).

After I finished my lunch at my art group, I had a lot of crumbs on my clothes. She burst out laughing when I brushed them off!

I can sometimes be a little over the top when doing things. I didn't just brush off the crumbs, I shook my clothes a bit as well.

I'm always delighted when my friend laughs. Most of the others in my group don't really interact with her all that much, possibly because they don't know how to talk to someone who is deaf.

I can use a little bit of Makaton (a sign language) and we get along really well.

My friends and I sorted out our General Election drinking game lmao, shame it's like 3 weeks away still omg, really looking forward to the night. (Rules below, for if anyone cares;)
Spoiler: show
Rules are you choose a team out of;
Team Red
-> Labour
-> SNP
-> Lib-Dem
-> Green
-> Plaid Cymru

Team Blue
-> Conservatives
-> UKIP
-> DUP
-> Sinn Fein
-> UUP

Then every time your team loses a seat, you take a shot of your drink (at like beer strength ofc, not having like 300 shots of vodka over a night lmao), and if they had previously held that seat you take two (e.g. if Conservatives won Glasgow Central (lmao) Team Red would drink 2 shots each). We wanted to split the shots over the team but Team Red will probably be bigger and Team Blue seems most likely to get more seats so that'd be real unfair lmao.

Also, each team has "trigger words", where if those words are said that team has to sip their drink. We're working on exact phrases, but:

Team Red
-> Unelectable (in reference to Corbyn)
-> Majority in Scotland

Team Blue
-> Strengthen hand in brexit negotiations
-> Strong and stable government

Both Teams
-> It really is too early to say (in reference tor result)
-> The next few hours will be very interesting

what so you didn't look at the news for long enough to understand that in the UK on Monday a pop concert was bombed and 22 people died and at least 59 were injured? you didn't see the attack in the Philippines? May is still ongoing and this is how many terrorist incidents there have been (141 as of right now, in case you were wondering) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_May_2017)

look up for once. see what's going on before you go "lol i'm not gonna make a 9/11 joke cause it might be offensive !!" or compare your character to hitler
Of course I knew about the bombing! I mentioned that in my last post!

My other post was more about using my common sense (which I lack) then the other thing!

I only mentioned the word (or number) I could've gone into more detail, to the point of actually describing the joke! But almost immediately after thinking of it, I decided it wasn't very "jokey" and left it! Offending people is the last thing I want! Although you find it hard to believe, I do have a brain (somewhere) in my head!

"lol i'm not gonna make a 9/11 joke cause it might be offensive !!"
At what point did I lol? When it comes to serious things like this, I don't lol or lmao or lmfao. I was quite serious in that post. I wasn't informal as I usually am.

I should be able to add vocals in my songs without using Vocaloid, though personally, I think Vocaloid's vocals sound better.

I'm not sure how to play Pokemon GO while outside my house though. I don't think my iPod can connect to the internet in any way while I'm outside.

Edit: I've actually spotted at least 3 gyms close to where I live! You can bet that I'll be challenging them at some point or another.

 I always love travelling through places I don't really know because it's nice driving past, say, a community hall and knowing that memories were made there and you get to think about all the important moments in people's lives that might have happened in and around the places you drive past. Like, driving past pubs, shops, pharmacies, and even car parks and knowing that there are most likely people who'll drive/walk past and have fond memories of that place.

 It's nice knowing that I've got my own life and my own story but I'm little more than part of the scenery in someone else's story. It probably sounds really weird but I'm falling asleep aha.

 Man, me and my girlfriend went away for a few days towards East Wales and it was amazing ngl. Like, there was this arcade with a little claw grabber for tickets and the first time I jumped on one it happened to be the faulty one that doesn't register that something fell so I got a tonne of ticket stacks and we got about 2000 tickets on that night aha.

 It was weird though because on the first day there, nothing was open? Like everything was closed and when we went to a pub everyone stopped what they were doing to watch us come in. Then when we got food, people kept watching us again. Was honestly half-expecting to find a Local Shoppe for local people. There was definitely something weird in the air.

 Anyway, it's nice to actually be home and to have that familiarity again. Like, the hotel room was nice but it wasn't a proper room kinda thing. It was just a room with a bed in it.

I beat the rock type gym in emerald after so many attempts! The two Geodudes were fine Wingull took care of them! Then Nosepass had to be sent out! It was the same attempt where I said:

"I only need Beautifly and Wingull. The others can't do anything to them!"

And then Torchic (eventually, after nosepass ate an Oran berry and two potions) killed Nosepass from a burn!

 Me and my friend went into the city today and played some Pokemon Go. The new gym rework is legitimately really nice too because it feels like there's more emphasis on playing as a group since you can feed the other Pokemon berries... which I guess keeps them in the gyms? We just sat at a gym and he tried taking it down whilst I tried keeping it up. Obvs there's no real PvP battling in there yet but it sorta felt like it and it was proper fun.

 The meta just seems more alluring now. It's fun listening to the collective "REEEEEEEEEEEE" coming from Reddit too because everyone complaining there seems to take the gyms way to serious lol.

also I don't know what the state of esports scholarships are nowadays but I remember the """"first"""" ones ended up being super terrible and the students ended up having to pay a lot more money than they expected or something so I would caution you to really look into it because they seem like pretty new and uncharted territory so I don't know how well schools treat them or whatever, but I also don't know much about scholarships in general.

 I've been meaning to post this for a few days but I've been hooked on 7 Days to Die and it's like a breath of fresh air for me since it feels like what a proper zombie game should be.

 I remember playing it the other night and, whilst raiding/exploring an abandoned hospital, I attracted a bunch of zombies and you could hear them busting through boarded up doorways and windows throughout the hospital and it was just amazing. Actually found myself blocking up the doorways in a tiny room and having to listen to them slowly come up the hallway before leaving and loitering - the whole thing was really tense.

 Officially finished painting this model too. Might add some details down the road but for now I've got my first Imperial Guardsman so ayy.
