★ I attempted to update here several times in these past weeks, but always felt like I didn't have anything substantial to say. Still feel like it, but whatever. All my f-list is updating and I'm afraid people will forget I exist and defriend me or something...

★ Been listening to Adele's Hiding My Heart for a couple of days and it's not doing me any good. I'm a bit disappointed in myself on the heart and feelings department and I've been feeling a little lonely for a while, so listening to Adele is like going on a suicidal mission willingly.

★ Another disappointment I had this week was the Bones season finale. Rest of this paragraph might still be spoilery for some of you, so I'll cut right here. )

★ How awesome is Game of Thrones? I love how it's critically acclaimed and epic and all that jazz. Of course it is, because it's not tv, it's HBO.

★ Remember the time I told you I was gonna start looking for another job? Hah. I'm doing NOTHING about it. Well, for my defense, there have been some major organizational changes in the company and now our department is a research and development unit which is awesome and means more money, so I'm hoping to get a piece of that pie.

★ Speaking of pie, I've gained so much weight it's insane. A coworker asked me if I gained weight before she said good morning (rude much?), so I take it as an emergency and start dieting. I'm not gonna starve myself, but I am also aware that I have been eating A LOT OF junk food and pastries lately. I quit. And I gotta start swimming. Summer is here. As soon as they put the sunbeds by the pool, I am there. I already have a natural lifesaver around my belly from eating too much cake. HA HA HA, not funny at all. I hate it. It feels like I have passed my prime and slowly falling into a pit of belly fat and boring days. I'm not obsessed with physical appearance, but I remember myself being all thin, fit and energetic and my current situation feels like shit to be honest. I need to change my ways and losing some of this weight will surely make me feel a bit better. Hopefully.

★ I believe I have sufficiently made your day a little bit more depressing, so mission accomplished. See you at my next post which will probably happen at a distant time in the future.

Yeah, I still remember Rebecca Black exists. Moving on...

I had my long awaited ultrasound today and guess what, THE STONE IS STILL IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE!

My exact reaction when the doctor showed me the god damned stone:

On the brighter side, it seems like it's not gonna move anytime soon and it got smaller somehow. I will continue drinking all sorts of juices and herbal teas to make it go away. AT LEAST IT DOESN'T HURT. But the idea of it still being there makes me uncomfortable. Dad told me to forget about it, so I'll try... until next time it hurts like a bitch and I have to be tied to the bed. Yes. Case closed. Dismissed. Overruled. Whatever.

SO YES, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE GOOD WIFE! IT IS GOOOOOOOOOD. Very very good. I'm still on Season 1, because it takes forever to finish the episodes! FEELS LIKE 2 HOURS INSTEAD OF 42 MINUTES! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT? Not that I'm complaining, but still! WEIRD!

And Vampire Diaries is back, wohoo! Yesterday's episode was pretty good, but not "HOLY SHIT" worthy.

On a completely unrelated note: I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE. I've been so lazy this past MONTH, it's insane. It's like I am out of writing juice. My brain can't focus on one idea and keep going with it and it's driving me crazy. To be honest it's mostly making me sad, but crazy part is still in there.

So yeah, I might just suck it up and try to write something, anything for the sake of writing, because I feel like if I stop writing, I have nothing better to do in life. Sounds a little depressed, doesn't it? Yeah, you got it.

I'm feeling a lot better. Thanks for all your good wishes on my last "kidney stone nightmare" entry. Still not sure if I actually passed the stone, but I have very little to no pain at all. Trying to be optimistic, but I can never know when the next hideous pain attack will happen. Either I learned to live with it or the stone is disolved and trying to find its way out without giving too much pain.

Of course whenever modern medicine falls short on giving answers, we turn our faces to herbs and vegetables. Today I started taking herbal pills, Gilaburu juice and golden herb tea. I will be pumped with so much antioxidant by the end of next week, I might become immortal in the process. FINGERS CROSSED!

Also, I'm trying to drink a lot of water, but despite my best efforts, I can't drink more than 2 liters (which is approximately half a gallon) without wanting puke my soul out. FAIL. I might stop drinking water altogether after I get over this tiny stone incident. My mom hates drinking water and I could never understand her feelings towards the tastless, colorless life substance, but now I know. I know mother, I know how awful it is. I will never ever tease you about it ever again!

On a completely different note: how many of you think Firefox 4 sucks meatballs? Because I do. I would rollback to 3-point-whatever if I wasn't so lazy.

In other news;
- I finished 3 seasons of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 3 days which was awesome when I wasn't jumping up and down in pain. I remembered how much I missed that universe ♥
- Started watching The Good Wife. Done with 2 episodes for now and I liked it! :D

That's pretty much it. I have a nagging little ache on the left side of my back at the moment, but I'm ignoring it.

Also, I've been away from work for 3 days and it was awesome... when I wasn't jumping up and down in pain. Although it wasn't the vacation I dreamt about, it is still okay. I'm going back to my usual workload on Monday and hoping not to have any terrible kidney pain attack during the day. My worst nightmare is finding myself jumping up and down in pain in front of everyone. I simply cannot do it.

Yup, that's it.

So, I watched Downton Abbey last night and it was indeed delightful! I've heard so many amazing stuff about it basically from everyone I know, so I had to check it out, but to be honest, my expectations were very low. That's why I started watching it after 11pm, expecting to fall asleep. BAD IDEA, SELF, because it was amazing and I couldn't stop watching, therefore I couldn't sleep well. I have one thing to say about the first episode... )

Dear Britain,

You've been doing such an amazing job with tv shows lately. Kudos, my friend.

Sincerely, your humble TV fan.

Aside from Downton Abbey, there have been some stuff that made me truly sad, but it's not the place and time to share. I just wish everyone to be healthy and happy around me, that's all. I've received so many bad news lately, it's starting to become a regular thing and I'm afraid.

I shall go on Tumblr and stay there forever. Come on Tumblr, don't disappoint me on this. You gotta have some gems this week. So many soooo many feelings oh my god.
thelake: (greek: waiting)



This year is just so tragically devastating regarding my TV habits. First Friday Night Lights, now Greek.

Expectedly, I cried my eyes out. Greek Series Finale )

I remember seeing Greek ads all over the internet and streets while I was in college and working in NY and thinking "God, what a horrible idea and look at those people, stupid! STUPID!" I WAS SO WRONG, SO SO SO WRONG. JUST LIKE ELIZABETH BENNETT SAID IN PRIDE AND PREJUDICE 2005; I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND, INTERNET. I finally found my way into this awesome show and I'm so gonna buy the whole box set and rewatch it for 34095849 times in the future.

A final advice: WATCH IT. YOU WON'T REGRET IT. Greek was, is and will be the best college show I've ever watched in my entire life. Well, if you think of it there haven't been any TV shows that is focused on college before, so GREEK WINS AT LIFE.
thelake: (7092: queen of lands)
I'm waiting for Greek to finish downloading, it has 20 mins. to go and apparently I've been sleepwalking whole day because I pretty much forgot downloading all the important shows. Except How I Met Your Mother. It was really nice Except... ) Then there is Gossip Girl but you already witnessed my excessive reactions 2 entries before, so no need to mention it again.

How awesome was the Oscars this year? Haters to the left, Anne Hathaway was flawless.

That was supposed to be a real life post, right? Yeah.

Work is work. Sometimes too much work and sometimes a lot fun, but still, work is work. And apparently it is a neverending cycle of projects. One ends, another one starts and I'm always the designated driver during those parties. No fun, always work. Although there's a very important upside to all of this I FEEL LIKE A FREAKING QUEEN BECAUSE EVERYONE NEEDS ME. So yeah, universe and I have a slightly skewed way of understanding each other.

Mom's left us alone for the remainder of this week. She's visiting her eldest brother (aka my eldest uncle) and having a good time while I feed my brother, my dad and myself. At least there's no immediate laundry to attend to so I'm a happy sailor. I hate doing the laundry. It's gonna be me and the dirty dishes this week, fun times ahead y/y?

I've been e-mailing back and forth with 2 of my college friends. One of them is getting married this fall so we've been talking about sex, marriage and kids a lot. I have none of them, S has sex, N has sex and marriage, so I mostly take part in the conversation with my fictional knowledge of real life relationships. I'm giving all sorts of advices while I'm thinking about the characters I wrote about throughout the years. I feel like I've lived 943593 lives, but in fact I haven't lived 1 at its fullest.

I don't want to go deeper on the subject of love, sex, marriage and kids, so I'll cut this part short. Don't want to bring you down with me during my pathetic attempt at validating the absent parts of my own life.

On a happier note I've downloaded the BluRay rip of Tangled. It gives me so much joy. And I love Natalie Portman.

ETA: Tangled was even more amazing and fun the second time around. ♥

Dear Gossip Girl,

If you end up screwing up Blair & Dan, I will hate you with the rage of thousand suns.

For real this time.

Best regards,

Friday Night Lights was my show so I kind of feel obligated to write about the finale.

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose. )

Thanks to [ profile] supportmybones, I realized today is my beloved vampire slayer Buffy Summers' 30th birthday! REJOICE!


Aside from these lovely news, life's being a bitch lately. That's all.
