Blah Blah Blah

Trying to get myself motivated today.....

I've spend the last three days or so being sick with some sort of stomach thing. I'm not sure if it was something I ate or something just going around, but it's the first time in a couple years I've thrown up....which was particularly gross because when my stomach started hurting I took a bunch a Pepto Bismol so it was all PINK....ewwwwwwww! I won't be looking at that medicine the same way again for a while.....

I've done pretty crappy at my working out/healthy eating this last week and a half or so, so once I'm feeling a little better (maybe tomorrow?) it's back on The Beast and back to my healthy eating. I'm pretty miffed because in the last two weeks I ate a lot of stuff I shouldn't be and gained some of my weight back....  It's just so easy to eat stuff that tastes so good but it so bad.....

During my time being sick, I rented seasons 10 and 11 of CSI: Vegas, to catch up and so far it's really good. Wasn't sure I'd like Laurence Fishburne as the lead but it's actually very good. I've got about six episodes to go in the 11th season and then I'll have that finished. I have to say, it has been very enjoyable watching it on the new TV. I wasn't sure how much I'd use it but I've been getting a lot of use out of it lately, so it was worth buying. I'm still amazed at the picture quality :)

Sitting online today with Jess, which is very nice, because I'm hardly every on and she was busy with school. Now we just need to get Tracey on! Wish we could get Paul on.....*hint hint*

Will write more later,

*145 Days*

 At the smokeshop:
-Guy comes up to counter
-Robin tries to hide her 'I smell something foul' face
-Guy buys smokes, turns and starts to leave
-Robin has hand over face, tears in eyes
-Guy leaves
-Incense instantly appears in Robin's hands
-Robin: "He smelled like....like....BAD FARM SEED!!!!"

 Things have been going okay. I've been having a blogger version of writers block....I go to blog and my brain goes blank. Not that there is a ton going on in my life right now but there is enough to write about. I think I might find a website where they list ideas for writing/blogging and see if that helps get me back into it. I don't know if it's the lithium or what but my creativity is all but gone. I really miss it and want it back, it makes life very boring.....

 I saw Dr. B this week and he is happy with my moods being more leveled on the Lithium. I tried to tell him about my issues with social anxiety, self-criticism/how I see myself, constant worrying and paranoia, but it was like he wasn't even listening to what I was saying. He was just like, see you in three months. I'm still having these issues yet he made the next appt. even farther away. It made me feel a bit abandoned by him and like he really doesn't care what is going on and is just pushing me through the appt. It's very frustrating. I'm going to talk to Sherlynn about it next week.

I'm getting very close to being able to reapply for Medicaid, finally! My meds cost $550 this month....it's nuts!! I just have to hit a certain threshold with my back pay and I've just about reached it. I've been getting things for the apartment the last couple weeks. I replaced the tv, which was so exciting! I've never bought a new tv before so it was really fun. I ended up with a 37" flat screen 1080p HDTV. I was going to get a little smaller but it was on sale for the same price as the smaller one I'd looked at, so I went with it. To go with it I bought a black tv stand and matching end table, both look very nice. I also got a slip cover so my couch is no longer cream, pink and green (lol)....it is now a nice suede material and a darker shade of brown. I got two accent pillows for cheap, they are beige and brown and look really good with it. I found a cheap rug at Walmart for in front of the couch and it looks really nice. The living room is looking really cozy and I curled up on the couch a few nights ago and had a little movie marathon with the new tv.....was really nice!

Not much else to write about, but I'm going to try really hard to write more in here,

 PS: how is everyone?? Good I hope!

New Camera!

My new camera arrived today! Yay! I finally have another DSLR camera! This one is packed with so many features as well as the simple things I have missed like really strong macro abilities, shooting in low light, being able to work a camera manually as well as controlling the focus and zoom by hand and having modes that replicate different film types :D The focal length on this one is pretty crazy, as I was testing it out on the way to Robins. There is a lot of new stuff to learn on this one so it will be fun figuring it all out :)

A couple test shots I did today with it and a pic of the actual camera:
