WTF ego.
WTF heteronormality.
WTF totally different groups of friends.
WTF missing Queer Bubble.
WTF L Word (like THAT'S new).
WTF work ethic.
WTF temper and annoyance.

I had a nice birthday. Really. Maybe some time I'll update on it. I have really good friends here. They love my family, too. And vice versa.

Oh. Dawning on me that my moon is approaching. Moodiness slightly more understandable. Will have to work harder to stay Present.

Reading and enjoying. Need to do mammal poster for Friday. Tomorrow have Mammals and practical. Would like to do poster after that and Wednesday. Start studying and working on other stuff.

Need to write.

Need to sleep. Life, you know.

Voice post some time, I wonder?

Also, paid member! Thanks to Grammie and Mum.

Lecture was boring/interesting/uninteresting/funny/strange all at once. Lecturer had us guess one term by playing HANGMAN. Seriously.

Practical? Fun. Worked with Pip. Had the maths down, but of course it was easy. Just proportions and working with blocks for populations.

Then we got to practice scruffing mice. It reminded me of Mimachi. I loved being around them. I tried to great them by breathing and getting united with the universe and thinking, "Hello, Sibling, please be calm, we mean no harm." I felt a bit silly afterward but it seemed to work. They were very calm and normal around me, while other mice tended to dive for the corners and stuff their faces in the edges or scurry around ceaselessly. My scruffing was alright--good positioning, but I always let it slip to the side each time before I lifted the mouse up. They were wild captured mice and didn't seem to enjoy the activities very much.

Later I was speaking with Pip and Adorable Becky from ecology. Becky said if we wanted to give the trapping and handling a shot again when we were the only ones to touch the mice, she would be totally willing to take us out and help us use the traps. The mice we were handling had been handled a few times already.

So now I have Becky's email address for when we want to try out surveying with her! Win.

  • 17:28 We're watching Beauty and the Beast now. I can't help but feel quite a bit like Belle! Stranger reader, eccentric father...but no Beast!
  • 18:01 I hate heteronormativity. I know it makes sense, blah blah, but it still makes me sad.
  • 18:36 Sarah has a Beast in Harry. I'm still in the phase with the books... Ah, all is fine.
  • 22:54 I get peeved way, way too easily. And it turns me into a snarky beech. I need to breathe, seriously.
  • 08:12 I can make it through this lecture and practical. Yes, yes I can. Alright. Ready set go.
  • 14:38 Becky let me use her face mask and it was green so I took pictures and look somewhat like Elphaba. Giggles.
  • 15:58 Apparently Mary spends her time with her friends lesbian-watching. "Oh they're snogging!" "Straddling!" "...arguing?" "Done." Sounds right.
And that's a wrap, folks! Kupokweh!
