I don't want to go to work. Between the weather, my skin issues (which are autoimmune related) my meds and being on my feet or sitting in a plastic chair with my feet dangling for 14 hours a day the last 3 days my feet are swollen, and when I have them down they just swell up more.
I hope theres a box under the desk I can put them on. We had a little footstool when someone else was pregnant but it vanished a few months ago

Am particularly busy this week.
A speech for Speech class on Wednesday, an Exam on Friday and a field trip of some sort on Saturday.

Unlike Starwind and Hag, I *am* working on my backlog.

Because instead of playing recent, fun games --- starting up on SOCOM 2 seems like such a good idea. (huuuurrrrr)

(It's not that bad a game at first glance, since you can use stealth, commands and strategy instead of the usual run 'n gun US military simulator).

But you could be! How do you know? HAVE YOU SEEN ALL THE WOMEN IN THE WORLD? HUH? HUH?

What I was getting at wasn't really that I am more or less of a person based on my attractiveness. But that it can be a bit of an identity crisis to constantly be seeing myself one way, but have moments where it feels like I clearly see myself as I am and it disappears quickly. Sometimes it's just really confusing to wonder if I am as crazy wrong as people say I am when it feels like I am genuinely not able to see what other people are. It's not even based on self-esteem at this point, it's a physical image that I see completely differently.

Some moments I have it seems like I am looking at myself as everyone else does and it's so sudden and such a change from what I normally see that it's just really strange and I am not sure how to take it :/ It makes me wonder what kind of truth I see the rest of the time.


I am extremely unnaturally tired. I could still keep sleeping all day long and be perfectly happy. I am full of sneezes and ickyness.

Also, here you go:

I have an hour and a half private lesson at 3.
A.) that is EARLY. and B.) long!
I've never taken a private lesson more than an hour. And I don't even know this teacher very well....but then she did all of our rehearsals for Angels in Nutcracker last year. So I guess it's okay.
Eeeeh but that really splits up my day. I hate doing things in the middle of the afternoon. So I should eat and do homework now...and work with my wig and pattern for a bit before I have to go. Yeah I guess that's a good plan.

In spite of the memes about it, Portal as a whole is hilarious and the ending to Portal 2 is forever amusing to me even if the internet have beaten it to death.

Well, one - not everyone sees you (or anyone else) in the same way. "Everyone" is not a monolithic entity and has no single opinion on how you look. So to say that you look at yourself as everyone else does is really to say that you are looking at yourself as you think everyone else does. It's still a self perception. And two - no one looks the same way all the time. You aren't going to see the same person every time you look in the mirror. That's normal. Some days you'll look and feel great. Other days not so much. Some days you'll be wearing a frilly dress having a picnic with PD and others you'll be shoving a slice of bread slathered with nutella in your mouth. One look may be "prettier" than the other but they are both Emmers and both those looks are great!

I think everyone looks their best shoving a piece of bread with nutella on it down their face. Can we all just universally agree on this?
