Yesterday I discovered why I shouldn't take my meds without eating first, and that is because crushing chest and neck pain.  Which lots and lots of water fixed, but it was very unpleasant and interrupted my otherwise delicious dinner, which is sitting in the fridge waiting for me to eat it.

...What's that? You didn't know I was on meds? Oh yeah, that's right, I haven't posted in over a month >_____>

OKAY SO WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS I got put on a tiny dose of fluoxetine (Prozac) and have since felt SO MUCH BETTER (ie: I feel normal. I'd forgotten what normal felt like!) but lol side effects, including:

loss of appetite
increased anxiety (I HAD A PANIC ATTACK IT WAS AWFUL)
nausea sometimes. I already had problems with this beforehand so I don't know if it's the medicine or me though.

Loss of appetite in particular is pretty irritating because I barely ate in the first place. I think it's gotten better, but I'm still going in to talk to my psychiatrist about it. Because yo, I know I slept too much but now sleep is just not a thing sometimes. ...I had sleep paralysis after trying to get some sleep after my last post, by the way. That was kind of scary.

I am one of two girls in my engineering class, which is discouraging because there's a group evaluation thing at the end of the semester and that means I will inevitably be docked points both because of subconscious discrimination and because literally everyone in the class but me has built their own car. It has gotten better lately! But I still dread that class. weh. Calculus is a lot better.

I fell behind watching Sailor Moon (I AM SO EXCITED TO WATCH VENUS'S INTRODUCTION EPISODE but I haven't been in the mood lately for like a month. Oops) and got into Dwarf Fortress. That is a terrible idea, don't ever do it.

(it's super complicated, has an unintuitive interface, and unless you happen to know the names of the ores that iron and copper come from and how to turn them into steel then you're going to need either the wiki or a geology textbook. But it's really fun, and can be made funner by the tradition of ruling the fortress for a year, then passing the save file to someone else without telling them what's going on, and writing an IC log about what happens.)

I've come to terms with the fact that I have an enormous crush on Thane Krios from Mass Effect. I didn't like him at all at first, because he seemed to me to be altogether too sure of his morality for an assassin >__> Also his face was really uncanny and his voice is super gravelly.  But he was so polite and friendly and gentle and adorable. He's so grateful for everything Shepard does for him, and if he confesses his feelings and she turns him down he's not disappointed or upset at all and continues to support her and never mentions it again. HE'S SO NICE ;__; It eventually overcame everything I didn't like about him. Now I'm trapped >__>

The writers really did wrong by him by only giving him one scene in the third game. No one even acknowledges him, even if he and Shepard are supposedly a couple and he sacrificed his life saving the Councilor (he's sick, he was always dying, everyone knew he'd die in the third game). In fact, literally minutes after his death, you get at least two (possibly four) people trying to ask you out on a date! What the heck, writers 8| That's not how it works for the rest of the romances. An hour previous, all your friends were consoling you on the death of one of your other comrades. The writers even admitted that they literally forgot about him while they were writing the game. Thanks, guys.

I also think they did wrong by Jacob, but I've already talked about that. Ugh. There were so many ways to forcefully end his relationship with Shepard if they absolutely had to, and they did it by making him cheat on her. BIOWARE STOP.

Hopefully I get back into writing so I can add this to the giant pile of things I have to write about.  Oops.
