3:00 pm - Hi LiveJournal!
I'm not dead, I promise, I just got sucked into the giant clusterfuck that was leaving the country and starting work.
So now that I find myself in a land where the clothes don't fit and the cleansers and cosmetics are made for Japanese skin and hair, I'm looking for reccommendations for online retailers - can be indie, handmade stuff, or bigger sellers that have good products and service.

Let me know what your favourites are! Cheap international shipping a plus!

I won't have my own internet until April, so if I miss anything good between now and then, link me plz?

Love you all.

9:53 am - eurgh
Go to sleep before 9 = wake up at 4.

Go to sleep after 4 = wake up at 9.

Which means, now that I’m overslept, I’m groggy and nauseous and need to shower and have to face a fairly invasive gynecological procedure without the benefit of food in my stomach.

And somehow pull myself together enough to drive back down to the city for class tonight.

Today, so far, is not my favourite day ever.

Further musings to come.

8:26 am - maaaaaan I have been neglecting this hardcore of late
so work finished yesterday, huzzah. and then there were tacos. and now it's raining and I have laundry to do but first I'm going to have a shower and then see about driving a friend to the bottle shop.

Tonight I am planning to drive to my parents house, where I will spend Christmas. I will do a lot of baking, since I have no money to buy people things this year. And I will try to throw some things out, since that seems to make my mother happy and I do need to cull my crap before I go next year.

I sort of wish I could spend this Christmas down in the city with the family I have made and chosen, rather than sequestering myself with the family I was born to, but. Blood ties run deep and this may be the last year I see some members. Family is as family does, and I will spend the public holidays catching up.

Christmas is weird. I think I'll have to move away from the Western family-oriented celebration and more towards a pagan-type celebration. and I need to get my string of baubles back.

7:14 am - Huzzah!
Last night, QLD Parliament passed a law instating same-sex civil unions in our state. That means same-sex couples can be legally recognised as partners now, with all the rights and privileges that go with.

The vote was 47-40 for, with the "Liberal" party voting en bloc against the bill.

I want to give huge congratulations to all the members who voted with their heads, and their hearts, and not some outdated religious code. I want to thank all the members who thought through their vote and decided for themselves which way they wanted their state to go, who didn't sacrifice their personal feelings for the sake of party power *coughCampbellNewmancough*.

I will take great pleasure in informing my parents that I am one step closer to marrying herculeaneffort >:)

This was fantastic news to wake up early to. Now, breakfast and then study.

5:28 pm - Today has been
A wonderfully chocolate-and-coke kind of day. And it's rainy grey, too. Although these Ferero Rochere ads are kind of ridiculous.

I still don't have enough time for me and all the people I want to share it with before I go :( I'm running out of spoons on a regular basis and I don't know if it's because of or despite the new meds. Sigh.

Auf, back to slacking.

11:43 am - urrrgh... life
so instead of studying, yesterday was spent face-down in the pit of despair. I don't even... my brain is so fogged right now from being on and off so many different drugs and medications, my eyes have difficulty focusing, and there's this epicenter of dulled agony under my right cheekbone.

I want to skip the next... 18 or so hours. I will need so many hugs tonight.

11:56 am - Blessed Day of the Feast of All Souls of the Dead!
November is having some seriously awesome holiday mashups here.

Other awesome things include:

Do It Yourself, Naamah's diatribe on why people who say "go make your own (x)" can go eat a bag of dicks.

All of Cat's things happen today, or yesterday since I'm not in the States.

Making Light's Litany of New Saints.

My head does not feel entirely together today; my eyes feel like they want to fly away and I keep thinking that maybe eating something will help, but I know it won't. And I can't medicate because I need my brain to be functional for study.

Aaand now I'm going to mash Japanese into my brain for the next couple of hours.

11:39 am - Blessed All Hallow's Cup Day!
I have decided that I am the wrong person to try and enjoy commercialised holidays - I spent more time at Fright Night analysing and congratulating the performers than actually being scared. (That dude got himself horizontal on the fence! That's awesome! I went to a Gorillaz concert with the chainsaw zombie! Cool! etc etc.) That said, it was mostly jump shocks, and I have a trendancy to be unflappable when in a group.

Ended up being allowed to do my presentation late, taking an appropriate percentage hit for it. I'm fine with that. At least I get to do it. People in my class telling me that I won't be able to get my job in Japan because I'll fail this class, however, are not appreciated. A) they're wrong, and I've got the paper trail to prove it, and b) thanks, guys. Like my home life hasn't been stressful enough lately.

I'm tossing up going into the city for lunch/hanging out early this afternoon for Cup day. It'd be nice to get out of the house for a change on my day off.

and now, to showerytiems.

2:02 pm - It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black.
Oh man, I haven't fucked up this badly for a long time.

Long story short, I tried to write an entire presentation last night, failed epically, and slept through class as a result.

I don't even know what to do. I've emailed my teachers, explained what happend, apologised, and now I'm waiting for them to reply and seal my doom. I can't even cry, that's how bad it feels.

Ugh ugh ugh. Study for tomorrow's tests a-go, I guess.

current mood: fucked

8:36 pm - Thank you, Ursula Vernon

"I don't know," I said. "So many things I thought were true turned out not to be. And if those things are false, then how can anything be true?"

"I cannot help you," the boar-god said. "You have no enemies worth trampling, and I cannot remake the world into a shape you understand." He lowered his head. "All I can give you is one night of sleep. No dreams or demons will approach you. No doubts will yammer in your ear. You need not argue with old lovers inside your head, or tell yourself the stories you already know by heart."

"Thank you," I said.

"It is a small thing," said the boar-god, "but small things are the beginning of courage."

12:45 pm - all the pain and rage
So, I went to talk to my doctor this morning. Turns out I probably wouldn't have failed my syntax class last year if I hadn't been so highly medicated.


So many times in classes I didn't understand. So many things I had trouble with. So much blaming and hating myself for not being smart enough to do this.

Sometimes my body shits me to tears.

current mood: frustrated

Should I be freaking out right now? I have a job interview at 3.

In any case, have a poem: Hot Wet Mess, by s00j.

I want mahjong to hurry up and start, I want to take my mind off how much I suck.

Well, in the Canadas, at least.

Yesterday was GRAND, in all the good ways. I slept til I woke up, chilled out watching some music for a while, then wandered into the Valley for lunch with Scott. While I was waiting for him, I found Space Battleship Yamato on DVD, the cutest pair of over-the-knee stockings which I regret not buying, and $15 in a sci-fi novel I was browsing on the secondhand book stall. Then we had Italian and he took me back to Auscon, where I catcalled the cosplay contest and caught up with peeps I had not seen for a while. Then I went to Scott's for dinner before going to see The Cat Empire at the Tivoli, which was MAGNIFICENT. Felix signed my ticket for me after the show and we chatted for a bit, which was cute :3 Then I came home and slept and Brandon brought me comics, and now I'm about to unpack the 2tb xhd Jared bought me on Saturday when he and Lei came down for lunch. Friday night was also wonderful, with a bunch of people from AIE coming out for yakiniku, along with Leigh & Scott, Frosty, and Rohan.

Today I shall attempt to be productive academically, as I have empirically determined that my 100mg tab is affecting my cognitive function, so I'm half-dosing myself until I go to see the doctor and talk to her about it. Tonight I'm going to Nick and Frosty's for movies and socialising, and possibly to talk about moving in.

Also I tripped and got myself a tumblr, comment if you want me to add you or some such.

current mood: cheery
