|Turning new leaves
Hello my trusty rusty old friend, it has been years. I am pretty sure. I keep getting messages that spam-bots have found the same 1 of my OLD posts about Chi now known as Kiki, I hear. Interesting. I am not exactly sure why this is the case, why that post, why now?..
In other life-related news. I am excited, unusual for me, eh? I am attempting to take strides on various life goals, such as the one to be fluent in Spanish, Chinese and Hebrew. Spent a while watching Hebrew TV and doing Hebrew exercises today and also started on Chinese Pimsleur. Nascent I know, but progress nevertheless. גם קניתי ספרים סיניים וספרדים מאמזום. Perhaps that is how I will revamp this OLD journal of mine, as one to practice writing in. I like the idea of that better than trying to start a new journal on someone else's site, I feel as though אין לי משהו כדאי לומר. I guess that is a personal problem.
Despite my disdain for New Year's resolutions, this year will have a few. The new year is coinciding with some personal realizations of mine. Perhaps the holidays and family and visits tends to do that to everyone, thus the whole concept of New Year's resolutions (how do I abbreviate that, were I speaking it would be new years re-so-lu-sh).
On that note.

How likely is it that your friends who will be having the same synchronous conversations that you are having with your friends, with their friends. I am constantly running into examples of synchronicity, and it is quite odd. For example, I read in a book about scolopamine, and that day, Nick comes in my room and starts talking about Datura and Nightshade, some plants which naturally produce it. And yesterday after not thinking about the macarana for years, Nick and Shane and I started talking about it, and now I see someone whose friendship circles do not intersect with mine other than the fact that we know eachother referencing the macarana in their away message. Weird... I suppose their is a chance that since we all go to a small school that the conversation about it made someone think about it an reference it to someone else which looped around the small grouping of actually social people here, but either way it is strange. I wonder how frequently synchronicity happens and whether it is truely due to interlocking social circles quitely influencing eachother or true coincidence.

|"CD8 presenting T cells to the front line!"
so i am sitting in my living room now, watching my stupid ass cat try to eat a plastic bag....maybe i should stop her,but it is pretty big, so i doubt anything too bad will happen. i was talking to nick today about making immunobiology, the movie, the war between lymphocytes, luekocytes, and invading bodies, and also immunobiology, the movie, the beurocracy. because everything is super redundant, and there are like 8 billion sentienal equivalents, all running back and forth and activating eachother. oh the good old days when i thought that the immune system was just white blood cells, the end. oh amusing, well back to immuno...fuck you t cells i dont care how you recombine....

omg it is wayyy too late,
how is it that i try to fill my life with no deception, and it just envelopes everything around me
i hate lying to people, and/ or omitting information....
i need to get in contact with val and find out what is going on with next week, i am so psyched about seeing her
my parents are pissed at me, cuz i told them i wasnt going to be home that much
my grandmother sent me a coat that is just "sooo sooo sooo big on me, i bet it would fit you"
so even if i had wanted it, with those words i dont think i do
why cant people say things without being mean about it
i almost always manage to get my way without hurting peoples feelings, it takes about 2 seconds of extra effort in thinking about your words before you say them, and that isnt even something that i am particularly good at.
also dont lie to me, even if it is inconsequencial...it fucking pisses me off...
also also, i just walked out of my bedroom and my cat attacked my feet.
fuck you ribosomes
only well 34 hours or something left until i am done, both a scary and inspiring thought
i really need to work on making good life choices.
do i have a sign on me that says take advantage?
i am going to start thinking about all actions that are made towards me, and by me, before further actions are taken, i keep seeming to fall into things without a) thinking them through, and b) meaning to get into them.
i cannot wait until june, moving out of my apartment is probably the best thing i can do right now.

it is far to early to be awake right now, yet i find myself up at my 18th hour of awakedness...fuck....i am going to hate this week and then get really drunk on thursday. yay for plans. genetics can be interesting when it wants to be, as though it was a person. also lauras birthday was last night and we went out for tipanyaki and it was delicious so whoot! oh this weekend has been fun, except for friday which was a horrorshow. well i really want to keep procrastinating, but i guess that i should not... fuck you genetics with a large i dunno... fine fine.....sleepless ramblings are terminated

gah.... it is like 6:45 and i am still awake, i need to figure out a better studying schedule
in other notes, both my n key and shift key fell off, and i get to make humorous, in my mind references to nipples every time some one borrows my computer :-)
also, i have been playing Freerice.com which is like vocab sats all over, it is fun...what does that say about me....but you, whoever you are should try it, yay vocab, i feel good about myself when i get it right, and oh so very terribly stupid when i get it wrong.
i have a test in 2.25 hrs, fuck, i should get off of here :-D

I am in a super good mood, except for the massive ammount of work i should be doing. this last weekend i saw heather and dave for the first time in forever and it was really cool. and today i hung out with mara, she is an expensive date :-) but it was tons of fun, we got breakfest together , and rented movies, and ate ice cream, and bought fuzzy clothing, and i got my nails done for the first tie ever, it was really hard to take my contacts out, but that was it, and they looked really cute, and i showed mara how to make mashed potatoes, and we ate a ton, in anticipation, and tomorrow i am waking up early to go for a walk with dad and to start on the turkey, and it will be fun, i am really looking forward to a good dinner, and all four of us plus grandma ....yay. and on friday i will be going shopping, and seeing valerie and maybe going to a club for this first time ever, and i dunno i am psyched to be home, except for the weight of work i feel building up, i cant wait to go on vacation :-)

Well I think I have decided to get back into using this thing. I guess I haven't in a while, but i find myself with a bit of free time, and alot of procrastination time, so here I am. Life is ok I guess. Its november, and it is cold, I cannot wait until next week. Danny and Aunt Toby are coming to NE and Uncle Shel is going to be coming in too, it is like a pre-Thanksgiving awesomeness, and I get to spend time with my family which I like. YAY. Ummmmm....what else. Well i guess i live a reasonably boring life. I have gotten Nick and Steve addicted to Battle Star Galactica, which i consider a triumph, and an awesomely awesome show. well i really should be applying for jobs right now. so i am going to go do that.

|Nerdyness to the MAXX
I am a ridiculously ridiculous nerd, so i got really excited becuase one of my favorite bands has a song called Special K, which is about the drug Ketamine, so i decided to research about what is ketamine online, more specifically on wikipedia, and i got really excited when i found out that ketamine has a chair conformation of cyclohexane in it which is what we were covering in organic chemistry, now i was just doing my homework, and a part of my book says "many drugs currently on the market are racemic mixures. ketamine, for example, is a potent anesthetic agent, but its use is limited becuase it is hallucinogenic. the (S) isomer is responsible for the anesthetic effects, and the (R) isomer causes the hallucinogenic effects." ha! this makes me soo happy, because i just read about why things like this happen in the body, whoa!, ENZYMES.....PEPTID BONDS...holy moly this shit is interesting!!!
on a different note, i think i will name my cat KY, or Kai, or CHI....it is realy all pronounced the same, lets spell it kai.....now the reason that i chose this name, other than the fact that it is pretty, and kinda girly, is that it is super duper nerdy....the kai is what the B'jorans call their religious leader in deep space 9, it is kinda like their pope, but like remember how much power the pope had over everything like 500 years ago, so more like that....also a chiral molecule is one that has a mirror image that is not superimposable on the same molecular formula other CHIral molecule...lol....so my cat will be the biggest nerd on the block/universe....AWWESOME

Placebo rocked my socks off big time, great great concert! it was totally worth the ridiculous ammount of studying that i had to do to pull of going there. my only gripe was that they had not water fountains and water was $5 a bottle, like whoa expensive!!!
omg i am listening to Special K by placebo again, it is soooooooo goood, they were amazing, like all the music was equalized perfectly, and they were so great at getting people really into the music!!!!
"no hestitation no delay,
you come on just like special K"
