hide beside me
Maybe for a while
Then I won't tell
no one your name.

I really need to clear my phone inbox more often [Saturday, May 28th 2011 @ 5:41pm]
[ mood | weird ]

Had a bajillion texts, so started clearing it. Hooked up my phone to laptop to save any texts I wanted to keep but it didn't sync my contacts properly so when it saved all my texts in a .csv file they were all phone numbers, so I did a find-and-replace for each number, and here's a break down of the top 15 people I text:

Ian - 569 || Mum - 71 || Sim - 66 || Mike - 42 || Pete - 28

Will - 27 || Harriet - 26 || Ben C - 17 || Garef - 17 || Char - 16

Max - 15 || Matt - 14 || Fred - 11 || Lee - 11 || Sonny - 9

...569. Bloody hell

(I hadn't cleared my inbox since the start of December, not properly)

And most of his texts still make me laugh: "*points at self for assassin craziness*...", "ITS NOT RUSSIAN! *RAGE*" and "Max keeps feeding me alkimahol....Help!" are current winners for actually making me lol

Now down to 69 in the actual inbox and 72 saved in a separate folder (ones I want to keep on my phone still, ones like the one where Sim told me he got the job and old reminder texts from the NHS)

Take a look?

SO start of April was start of my easter break! Nowt much happened other than catching up with friends - nothing crazy cos I felt too awful to do anything crazy (yes I am that lame). Did go to Rugby though, stayed at Ian's for a night - his parents are nice, his brother is pretty quiet but very geeky from the looks of it. Met some of his friends, including Nay and Lenin who are awesome, and saw a bit of Rugby town centre. After the holidays I had the lit review (5000 word limit) due in and an essay (3000 word limit), both handed in SO GLAD I don't have to think about that stupid bloody lit review anymore. Oh, and handed in lab report as well, did alrightish on it so HUZZAH NO MORE LABS! Not been out Corping/Casbahing in FOREVER can't wait for exams to be over, I'm gonna go get so drunk. Did go PopTarts though which was hilarious and very drunken and just fantastic =D

No I'm not dead.

Yes my meds are still making me weird.

Other places I update more often: my tumblr and twitter

Tumblr is actually consuming my soul.

Last few days have been pretty awesome - behind on my work but I honestly can't care. E5 are a little confused/surprised I think, as I've pretty much spent the last few days there. Met Ian's family on Sunday, went for lunch with them. They were very nice but I was absolutely terrified. They seemed to like me though, which is good, even if his mother may have noticed my lack of interest in horses (she's got one and was talking about it - I know nothing at all about horses or horse riding).

Had a review today with Kerry (one of the specialist nurses). I'm on a reducing dose for my steroids now! *happy dance* What this means is that tomorrow I start a lower dose, and I lower my dose again by 5mg in two weeks and keep lowering it every two weeks till I'm off them. Which means I'll be off them by start of exams which means I won't be taking them at BOA =D

New lab project started today, seems to be going okay so far though I was a bit lost earlier - but then again I missed about 2 hours of labs today cos of hospital stuff (and 10 mins seeing my biology group).

Spots are still pissing me off, still getting leg pains, still getting fucked-up body temp (like I'll have hot flushes or go freezing cold - what am I, 40?) and still getting stupid emotional crap. Like last few days I just feel really down when I get home - though I've been at Ian's a lot, I have been nipping home to grab things/check emails/check real mail and even with him sometimes I just seem to suddenly feel depressed/insecure/like I might start crying for no real reason. Sometimes I can figure out reasons but they are usually stupid. Like that I'm getting fatter again, which I know is cos I'm eating too much which I'm pretty certain is a result of the steroids and I could just try and starve myself for a bit but that probably wouldn't be a good idea as all my meds are meant to be taken with/after food. And it's kinda getting me down, which is ridiculous. And the spots are kinda making the whole insecure thing worse. Thank christ/whoever that I'm lowering my dose - apparently most people notice the side effects go away when on 20mg or lower (I'm guessing cos it's so little it can't do much at that point)

ANYWAY time to do some work and then sleep - long day tomorrow. Can't wait for it to be over and it ain't started yet!

A song that makes you sad
Simon & Garfunkel - America
So many parts of this song, but this bit kills me everytime.

"Kathy, I'm lost" I said, though I knew she was sleeping.
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why.

Honourable mention:
HIM - Killing Loneliness
First time I heard this, I started crying part way through. It still makes me kinda sad...

Least favourite song
Hmmm, trying to think of a song I really dislike is difficult.
The closest I can come up with is this, which is overplayed and worshipped and it really doesn't deserve it. It's maybe average at best and people seem to think it's the BEST THING EVAR!!1!!
Anyway, have some whiny grunge
Nirvana - Smells like teen spirit

Favourite song
This changes all the time XD
I have a few songs that I always love though - Kathy's song, The Sacrament, pretty much anything off the Dizzy up the Girl album...
And this song: Name.
It's beautiful and sad and sometimes just makes me want to cry. I really do love the Goo Goo Dolls too much sometimes.

Update time~ [Thursday, March 10th 2011 @ 2:58pm]
Lab project is finished now - did the presentation this morning, handed in my lab book and lab report. FREEDOM! Well, till Monday anyway. No lectures tomorrow - hurrah! Heading over to Ian's later to take over his kitchen - it'll be nice to use an oven that works properly XD

Lots going on in March - McGuire's bday, St Patrick's day and first MBB301 deadline next week, Sonata Arctica next weekend (gonna be so AWESOME), Symphony X the week after, back home weekend of the 25th and then second MBB deadline.

Oh yeh, I'm an assassin now! I have a membership card and everything XD

Seeing Avenue Q on the 1st, should be amazing (it's a musical, it's also where the song "The internet is for porn" is from). Going with H, Mi and F, will be a laugh. We're gonna be singing along to all the songs!

In other news: why the hell is this bothering me?

What's happenin' brutha? [Wednesday, February 16th 2011 @ 8:50am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Finally been back to labs, and I managed to keep up. I did useful stuff. IT WAS INTERESTING O_O
And we're so chill it's ridiculous, I'm gonna miss this project when it's over.
The project is about "smart polymers" - at a particular temperature, the polymer changes conformation. It's kinda like a molecular switch, which could be uber useful. What we're doing is mixing it with a copolymer to try and alter the temperature it changes at - atm it's 32C but if we could create this switch at a range of temps...

Saturday corp was okay - stayed semi-late (left corp sometime after midnight). Corp sober isn't that scary actually, will have to remember that for future reference. Andy J was taking loadsa photos, so have a photo of me and Ian (I look terrible and kinda fat - probs put some weight on though cos not been walking so much!)

Ian and me

Monday went over to Ian's, was nice to just hang out with him and not have a nurse wander in to take my blood pressure/blood sample/feed me meds half way through a conversation. His flatmates approve of my cupcakes so yay~ Watched some firefly and Zombieland - v funny film, would deffo recommend it. I also got chocolates, though he wasn't /meant/ to be getting me anything *headdesk*
Fred also got me something - a little Lindt bunneh =]

Valentine's presents

Also got given a heart-shaped balloon on the concourse, but no photo of that yet.

Got a review appointment with a nurse this morning at 9:30. Have a list of questions I need to ask her, have been looking forward to this talk actually. I really want to know when I can come off the steroids!

Feel really tired right now, I just wanna go back to sleep. I'm really hoping the nurse might be able to advise or help with my meds-induced insomnia.

Tumblr still won't update with rss feed from twitter or flickr. Srsly not impressed. Also not impressed that there's no app for the average mobile - they have it for blackberry and iphone but nothing for the rest of us. Laaaaaaame.

Anyway, gotta go get ready, need to leave in about half hour...
