Hello all. I do in fact exist, and have continually existed since I last posted in August. Hi.

A few of you have been asking about how school has been going. Quick answer? Pretty damn well. This term I'm really able to put things together in a much more cohesive way. Well woman gynecology and gynecology skills are <i>awesome</i> classes. I'm learning so freaking much and loving it. I am learning a metric ton in my skills class, but Jeebuz... there is a limit to how many cervical cap fittings and speculum exams a lady wants in a day. Every Wednesday afternoon I spent with my pants going on and off helping my classmates by giving and receiving fake pap smears (no brushes or cervical scraping involved: Yay!) and fitting each other for cervical caps and diaphragms. The latter two devices being of the devil if you didn't know. I really have a whole post in my head about how ibteresting it is to learn about the whole exam process and how little most folks actually know about the "annual gyn exam" but really... most of you aren't hear to talk about the difference between a classical pap smear and a thin prep.

Since I last posted I started to do my winter depression. Joy. However, this was cut short by a pretty fucking powerful spiritual experience in Meeting (also: I've started attending unprogrammed Quaker meetings again which is stunningly good for me) and St. John's Wort. I cannot reccommend this little plant enough. I've been taking 2 dropperfuls every day with a little orange juice and it has been my saving grace. I am still struggling with depression, but it is mostly situational. The difference between situational depression and seasonal/chronic depression is so vast it's almost a relief to be this kind of depressed. 

On that note, the situational depression is almost all job related. I don't have one. This has been a huge stressor on me and I'm having a hard time keeping my chin up and convincing myself that I am a good worker and should be hired. Finances are becoming quite... gone. It's tough but I'll get over it.

I am still in full lust with Stargate Atlantis. the fact that the writing is often painfully bad and the in character behavior fluctuates so wildly between episodes cannot dull the fact that at any moment a giant orgy could errupt. This is less true for the current season, mainly because they aren't doing as much Team stuff, but still... I certainly have my pairing preferences, but honestly, there are very few pairings I can't see working in some way or another. It's pretty freaking great. I would also like to join in agreement that seasons 2-3 are probably the best, but each season has its high points.

There has been some weird stuff going on with interpersonal relationships, but mostly alright. I am currently living with a classmate (who is almost always wandering around the peak of awesomeness) and her sweetheart in a house in Portland. Our fourth roommate will be moving out, but that is a good thing. We need to find someone else. but it will be good to find someone who actually wants to spend some time hanging out with the coolness that is us.

So that's the last few months in a nutshell.
