I heard the chorus of fun.’s song blasting from some random vehicle stuck at the stoplight at the intersection of Dole and East-West road as I adventured back to the lab to put reagents in a flask to be mixed for 12+ hours. It was at the chorus, and I wanted to sing along to the next part, “Carry me home tonight~,” but I decided against that.
However, it left me happy. Despite the terrible situation I had found myself in, in terms of my Men’s Fashion zeitgeist + fashion boards yesterday, the day found a way to end on so many good notes, a chord, a final sigh of relief and weary joy.
This morning I listened to Carry On (I so do not follow artists close enough to even know if they’ve been singing new songs at shows that are yet to be released D:), and felt at peace. I think this semester’s going to turn out better than I had thought, seeing as how these first two weeks were a battle against time and bad habits.
I keep telling myself that now is the time to embrace every moment and live… Megan keeps repeating how she believes that college should be the time to enjoy your life, ‘cause, well, we are young. (:
I always ponder what I’ve done and regret so many things that I’ve done. I worry about the upcoming day and the people who I think have ruined impressions of me, about the people I am close to ruining impressions for.
It is at this time that I usually put Simple, Starving to be Safe on repeat and force myself to work until everything’s done.
For now, the only reward I want is sleep and the adventures I keep encountering in my dreams.
Yesterday somehow ended up with paitan chashu + gyoza at Yotteko-Ya (McCully) for lunch and chicken teriyaki + sashimi + assorted tempura at Restaurant Saito (Ewa).
Just now I ate some piece of See’s Candy, which Megan’s mother had given to us for the semester after winter break. I was freaking out a bit because it had some fruit pieces that had the taste of what I associated with some sort of chemical smell that I didn’t like, so now I’m hoping that I was just worrying too much and that no harm will come to me within the next few days. >_<
Emailed TA, got a response, response = repetition of my email, thought = “TA, why aren’t you telling me if it’s okay if I throw out that data point or not?” ):analytical chemistry is going to kill me with worry
Loco Moco (w/chicken patty) for breakfast, Savory Moulin Rouge crepe from the new kiosk by the law school for lunch, 2/3 quart milk + 2 brownie pieces as an afternoon snack (fear of milk spoiling over the weekend in my absence), some sort of soft white fish soup, fried gyoza and seafood shumai, mushrooms and squash for dinner.
My stomach is both happy and upset at the same time.
Must improve eating habits this semester… At least unnecessary snacking has so far been minimized? The fact that my meal plan only now accounts for 7 meals a week will probably help some. But oh, what will I spend my points on? (:
I don’t know if I’ll get into updating 111 more (it bothers me that my theme is broken in the sense that it doesn’t support endless scrolling or have page navigation but I want to keep it for the design!) or even attempt to maintain F, L & E anymore (I don’t take enough pictures at school anymore, or just don’t go on enough adventures to make me feel like posting updates is worthwhile)… I’ve already broken my resolve to write everyday in my newest Moleskine planner buddy (which is even smaller than last year’s!), so I guess it seems that I still can’t commit to things.
What did I do to wrong you? You’re overweight in comparison to your buddies of the same age. ): Please don’t tell me my carelessness and little attention paid to you has already screwed up my chances of a good grade in Analytical Chem Lab.
I mean, I love you and all for what you are, but you’re making me nervous.
Perhaps the reason why I keep singing/playing/listening to Adventure Time’s Sleepy Puppies Lullabye, which really does make me sleepy, is that I kind of am hoping that what has transpired in the past few days is just a dream that I can sleep away, that all these worries are unnecessary, that I can get rid of these thoughts that loop and loop in a descending spiral with happy chords, unbroken strings, and the security of sleep.
Went to sleep at 10:30p, Woke up at 2:45a, Figured out how to breathe clearly again, Forced self back to sleep.
Alarm went off at 6a, Immediately woke up, Felt tired and decided to wait until 6:15a for second alarm Longest and most restless 15 minutes I have felt in a while.
Showered, absorbing the warm water Powered on laptop, checked email, checked FB, checked texts, checked IM; Nothing of importance. Where is the communication I’m expecting? Where are my chemistry syllabi?
The concept of vitamins is a hundred years old this year.
During the late 19th century, there were outbreaks of fatal beriberi in East Asia. The study of this disease would lead to the discovery of vitamins. Kanehiro Takaki, a doctor in the Japanese navy, took a special interest in the…
