In other news, a friend of mine is best friends with the son of the woman who wrote The Hunger Games and today while the three of us were eating lunch together, it came up that my newly established career goal is to write for television. Apparently, the author of The Hunger Games (the mother of the best friend of my friend, just to clarify that hahhah!) has written for television before, and so have many of her friends. He told me that he will ask his mother for advice to give to me on the profession (!!!!!!!!). I died… (But in that good way, of course!!)
My neck still hurts from the car accident from the day after Valentine's Day, but I have a far wider range of mobility; i.e. I can twist my neck to look left and right without too much pain. But, carrying my books to and fro from the library, classes, etc. has clearly been taking a toll on where my neck meets my shoulders. My upper spine "cracks" so easily when I twist it, but then again, that could be because I stopped going to the gym due to the injury and therefore I haven't been doing my upper back strength exercises!? Wahhh. At first writing this, I felt guilty for complaining when I know a lot of people have it worse than me (exhibits A, B, & C: Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Bipolar Disorder) but then I realized that this is my blog, a space to call my very own, and if you weren't interested, you wouldn't be reading it! :p The one thing that kinda keeps annoying me about writing for the blogs for the various clubs that I'm in that I write for is that my posts are always edited without my approval. My name keeps going on posts that is different from how I intended it to be, and thus, not truly "my work". But I digress…more on this topic another day...Also because I've been super stressed out, my knee has been aching (also it's probably because I haven't gone to the gym in a while…*sigh*). I JUST WANT TO FEEL BETTER ALREADY I'M TIRED OF BEING SORE AND ACHEY AND ALWAYS HAVING TO HEAT OR ICE OR WHATEVER. I'M TIRED OF FEELING LIKE A GRANDPA; I AM YOUNG, VERY YOUNG, AND I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO GET BACK TO BEING ACTIVE AND CAREFREE (well not carefree, because I've always been a super intense person…not necessarily serious, but definitely always very much intense). I think a lot of the pain is being caused by stress so in a few days I'm sure the pain will start to heal even more!! :D
Speaking of being stressed out, there was a little light at the end of the tunnel for me: I literally told my Theory and Practice of Literary Study professor that it would be fantastic if she moved our paper to become due on the last day of classes before spring break (Friday, March 7th) AND SHE AGREEEEEEEEED because everyone seconded, thirded, and so on (all the way up to approx. 12) my notion!! Yipee *happydance*
The song "Chocolate" by The 1975 has been in my head all day, and so has "Always Spring" by I'm From Barcelona. I highly recommend you check them out; you definitely won't be sorry, but this is my disclaimer if you go and get them stuck in your head too as well that I'm not liable for that!! Hahaha
Also, tonight I have to go to a movie screening of "Blackfish" followed by a reception of black-and-white desserts and then write up a summary and viewer's response for extra credit for my American Earth class. I was super pumped until I learned it was about some murderous killer whale… FAIL. Emotionally, I'm not exactly in the right state of mind to watch a sad movie but the extra credit sounds really quite promising, as do those desserts ;) hahah mmmmm <3
Something I plan to do in my next post (probably tomorrow, because I'm trying to update the content and posts on this blog more frequently!!) on this blog is to post a list of things to do (both little and big) that make me happy because I hope that you can try some of these things for yourselves and increase your own happiness, too!! I also might try incorporating more colors in my blog posts, because I'm just so not a black-and-white kinda lady, hahaha!!
Until Next Time,
