So I have come back from the dead of Livejournal to make a request of all of my friends. So a little bit of background before I make my request. It turns out that I have a huge ovarian cyst that is appr. 23x20x18 cm large and needs to be removed by surgery along with whatever may be left of the ovary and the connected fallopian tube and such. Turns out my insurance company doesn't want to pay for it because they believe that I knew about it beforehand and waited until they accepted me to do anything. Anyways, bursting would be bad and would make it so my doctor would need to remove my entire reproductive system. So here's the favor. I would just ask for you all to pray/ think good thoughts/ send positiver energy/ whatever it is that you do so that my insurance company stops being horrible and consent to my surgery so that I may have the damn surgery and get better. Thanks you guys and even though I may have fallen out of touch with you guys... I love you all.

|02:17 am - hello|
So I guess it has been a while since I've paid attention to my poor attention deprived livejournal. Oh well, some things just can't be helped. Now I don't promise a novel, but more like a shorter bastard cousin once removed relative of a novel.
So Winter break
Winter break just seemed so short since I didn't really get a break since I worked over 30hr weeks. And then I also got strepthroat, which really sucks by the way. Just goes to show you that when you think you've beaten diseases, they like to bite you in the ass. For the second year ever since my existence as I remember it, my family did not leave Tucson during the vacation. So I got to spend as much time as possible with Steven when not at work. Christmas was good to me. I did, however, get a lot of rest which was sorely needed.
It's started up again and I hope that I do better this semester than last. A few things are in my favor, such as I am not taking Physics this semester and I am taking 9 units of pretty much BS classes. ("Today we are going to learn about the internet... A website is composed of Webpages.... Boolean searches are useful on search engines...::Thump:: ::Thump:: Maria banging her head against the wall)
What's against me is that I said that I wouldn't be lazy last semester and that got me nowhere and I am going to be testing for my blackbelt this June so whatever time I am not at school or working I am going to be spending doing karate. Also, due to my dismal grade in physics I was unable to keep my scholarships so I have to work as much as I can so that I can pay my tuition and dorm. I am enjoying my classes more than I did last semester though so that's another good side. I guess we shall see how the semester turns out.
I need to finish half of my techniques for February. If I don't test in February I'm telling my instructor that there is no way in hell that I am going to be able to test in June. Obviously in nicer terms though. And if I do manage to pull off a miracle, then I am going to see in April if I feel comfortable with my old stuff. If I am not comfortable with it then I will wait to test. I really don't want to make an ass of myself in front of people like the girl at last year's pretest that couldn't even do the beginning of Chinese hands. I laughed on the inside when I saw that and now it is my greatest fear. I am excited about it though. And I would rather test in June than in December. For two reasons: 1. Albuquerque is really cold in December and 2. the test is the week before the week before finals and it would only get me more stressed out. But then again...we shall see.
Work: still no big raise that I was promised months ago. I've pretty much given up on it. No big deal though assuming that I do well this semester so that I can apply to the MARC program since it gives tuition reimbursement and a stipend of $900 a month which is more than what I make now. But yet again...we shall see what happens.
Steven is awesome. That is all.
So that's pretty much everything going on in my life so far. This turned out to be a bit longer than was expected. I think I upgraded to the normal cousin of a novel. Yay!

So.. I guess that it has been quite some time since I have posted. I suppose that it happends. Schools been the usual rapist as always, and I've been taking it like a man. My birthday's coming up. I'm kind of excited but not really since 19 isn't really a cool age to become since nothing cool happens. I think a party is being set up at Steven's house, but I'm not in charge of that whole thing so I wouldn't know. Oh well, I guess I should do me some PChem. Later

|01:37 am - Black Belt Test|
This weekend was so very tiring, painful, and fun all at the same time. The blackbelt test was cool, I was sort of disappointed with the whole thing though. There were a lot of people there that I really do not think should be there. For instance, there was this morbidly obese woman who was going for her THIRD DEGREE who was unable to kick to her waist. I'm sorry if i of all people can kick someone's head (so long as they are close to my height. I don't see why anyone else shouldn't. or at the very least the waist that we have techniques and katas that involve kicking the person in the midsection or groin and not the shins.
So I know have no stress regarding my own test with the exception of the oralboards which scare me to death and the physical, for which I am going to start training now.
Good times were had. I love all of my people's and I didn't have to camp alone since Carrie didn't really want to stay in the dojo since female martial artists have a tendency to be mean when they have something to prove. much like female cops. I am so filthy that it is not even funny. But then again that comes from not taking a shower for three days while sweating up a storm during the day.
The main problem was that on the way home, Derek's water pump in his car got messed up so he and his girlfriend are still in Albuquerque. I hope everything is ok. I'll talk to him Tuesday afternoon to make sure that there is nothing else that may be needed. I'll see if I can post photos when I get my hands on them. Peace, I'm off to take a loooong shower.
P.S. driving for 7 hours sucks. hardcore.

I have a C in vector by 14 points. 14 more points on the final would've given me a B. I just lost all my scholarships...

|04:36 pm - Procrastination|
In an effort to delay writing my argumentative paper on affirmative action, I shall post some inane rambling.
I finally get to test for brown belt, I've had this one since July of
last year. That's what happens when you work during the summer and then
go to school and work at the same time. But meh, I'm excited. I would
just like to tell all that cane sucks, shadow rocks. Seriously, a staff
is so much cooler then a cane. But yes, crazy excited.
Registration is tomorrow and I have to wake up early to register. See,
there is no need to be in the honors college since I am a Junior right
now and will be a Senior after next semester. Woot. But yes, this poses
some problems when it comes to finding classes to take and keeping the
required 12 units for my scholarships. But here is the tentative
Chem 246a (organic chemistry)
Chem 247a (organic chemistry lab ...this thing is frikkin 5 HOURS LONG
Chem 408 (Physical chemistry) I would like all to know that I hate physics with
the fiery passion of a thousand Burning suns. Stupid need to take
PChem to do any upper level courses.
Phys 131 (cheater non real physics...based on Calc I)
Phys 181 (lab of aforementioned fake class)
so 13 credits all together.
I also have to decide whether I want to take Span 210 (Latin America on
film) during the summer to get it out of the way. Since I am pretty
sure that I wuldn't have any problems passing it being from Latin
America and all...
But yes...I suppose I shall return to working on English. Later
