Yesterday there was much mishap with regards to my ADD meds. It’s bad enough that I tend to put off getting a new prescription (refills not allowed) until I’m actually OUT, and so I have to go a week or so without it, but then I have to try and be responsible at the same time.
The pharmacy near my house was close to out of adderall, and apparently not getting any more in, ever. The options presented to me were to take their remaining stock (1/3 a month’s supply, no chance of being owed the remaining 2/3), fill twice as many half doses, or go talk to my doctor to change my prescription to something they do have. I opted for the half doses, but it turns out my insurance has some rule and only covers a single pill per day, so they couldn’t do that. I was kind of grumpy about the whole situation (dishes were grumpily washed last night) since I need to be on top of things for Thanksgiving, but also need to be responsible this month, particularly since I’m hoping for a job at the nearby Starbucks, and I’m WAY more likely to impress them with my awesomeness on meds than off. I decided 10 pills for the month would be OK. Not ideal, but I could manage if I took them sparingly and strategically, and figure out a new solution by next month.
It turns out they had 25 left. That’ll do.
TURKEY AND DOMINION TIME. Gonna see my favorite grandma and my aunt and my little (not so little these days) cousins and and and. Also my other favorite grandma (but not on thanksgiving) and give her some photos and things that I’ve been meaning to give her for a long time. Like, since last December >.<. Oh well. Better late than never. And I’m writing her a nice thank-you letter for the trip to Alaska she took us on. Pictures forthcoming (lol yeah right I’ll forget and never upload them for 10 years. I’m a photographer, it’s just I only publish to my external harddrive.)
Some time many years ago, we decided to measure something that has a zero value on a scale where zero isn’t at the zero value. A temperature of no heat at all is -273 and -460 in degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit respectively. This makes no sense. None.
In Kelvin, a total lack of heat is exactly 0 K. This makes sense. The lack of distance is exactly 0 meters. And 0 yards. And 0 parsecs.
So the obvious solution is to either switch everyone over to Kelvin (or Rankine if you’re a hipster), or to change introduce a new measurement for distance that has the zero point at some other value than no distance at all.
I suggest the Flen, based off the human body. 0 Flen is exactly 1.76 meters, because that happens to be my length. 1 Flen is 2.76 meters. -1.76 Flen is 0 meters, or a total lack of distance.
Some measurements in Flen: Diameter of CD-Rom: -1.64 Flen Length of Notch: 0 Flen Length of Jakob: 0.02 Flen Height of Eiffel Tower: 322.4 Flen
Who’s with me?
At least Celsius has some relate-able anchor points having to do with water at 0 and 100 degrees. What’s the deal with fahrenheit?
I didn’t know if this was posted yet on tumblr, so I thought I’d do it. The landmass of almost all of the provinces in Tamriel, has been put into Skyrim. All which are inaccessible(without console commands) and which serve absolutely no purpose in the game. Why are they there? I personally don’t know. But take a look at the effort Bethesta put into these seemingly pointless landmasses.
At the south-eastern most part of Skyrim lays Stendarr’s Beacon.
If you’ve looked at a map of Tamriel, you’ll know this is the closest place in Skyrim, to Morrowind.
If you travel directly North East of Stendarr’s Beacon, you’ll end up finding a path to your right, in between two huge mountains.
I noticed how beautiful the path really looked. It seemed quite enthralling actually for some reason.
The path is nestled between two mountains, decorated with trees, and at the end of it some type of gateway, or arch.
But, that open archway is the end of the road. The game doesn’t allow you to go any further. I find it strange, that there’s an area like this leading from Skyrim to Morrowind. Nowhere in the lore was this stone wall mentioned. And why would it be an open arch like that? Why not closed? Why is there a space at all between these mountains if we can’t go any further? As you can see there are still trees and foliage beyond this wall, but you aren’t able to access it without console commands.
So, I went into No-clip like the BAMF I am and travelled down this path.
… going forward, the IRS will treat claims for deductions of medical expenses related to gender identity disorder - including but not limited to hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgeries - the same as expenses for any other medical condition.
how are you kind of an idiot?!?? :( homeschooling is pretty awesome, ngl. or i had a good time, anyway.
The whole ‘barely graduating high school’ thing. Homeschooling seems like it would’ve been a better fit for me but it didn’t really seem an option.
I dunno, I’m always a bit frustrated/bitter that no one twigged to the fact that I might have ADHD until I was a senior in high school.
Oh man. This, so much. I think I would have done a lot better in any kind of alternative education. Not everything was bad, but I definitely didn’t thrive in public school. The lack of recognition for depression or ADD really didn’t help. I barely graduated high school by the skin of my teeth, and that was with a LOT of help from my grandmother.
You know what? Sometimes, consent is NOT sexy. Sometimes it's awkward, sometimes it's annoying, sometimes the person says no when you were really hoping ze'd say yes, and it's not sexy, at least not right then. And that's okay. You need to get consent anyway, because it's the right thing to do, sexy or not.
