Wow. I just scanned my friends pages on this journal for the first time in months and months and months - I guess that adds up to years? - and it hadn't occurred to me how much I'm missing! The only writing I'm doing now is on my Sweden blog, swedishhearts.blogspot.com. Anyway, if I stay on livejournal now I'll get sucked in forever which would not be good because I'm in Riga for the weekend and need to go to sleep early so I can get up early, but wow! I remember livejournal...

Amazing! Surgery in the air in zero-gravity conditions:


Will I become an outer-space surgeon?

well god damn. there's an article & audio slide show about my mom in the sunday times, in the real estate section. pretty funny.

i had my first organic chemistry exam yesterday and it went really well.

our landlord sequoiah is selling our house and this is so horrible but maybe we won't have to move out and at least it won't be for a few months.

today jake and i drove up in the hills along grizzly peak boulevard and i had a panic attack because i felt like we were going to fall off the cliff.

i went to dish this afternoon to look for something to wear to my mom's book party. i found this amazing royal blue satin wrap dress with slightly puckered sleeves and a little bit of smocking and a very open/low front. it's a seriously good dress but i don't know if i can handle wearing royal blue.

i'm growing cat grass, mint, sage, and calendula ("pacific beauty mix," no less).

i can't remember the other things i wanted to say.

I've had a sore throat and an almost-cold for the past week. I keep thinking it's not developing into anything, it's going away, but then it always comes back a little bit. I started coughing so much I was crying in physics lab on Monday. This afternoon I was feeling like it was sneaking up on me again so I took a nap which accidentally ended up being three hours long.

I tried to work on ochem for half an hour but I was totally unproductive. I'm working on my Fulbright stuff now. Why did I have to leave it all until the last fucking month? Then I started to have a panic attack about the proposal - well I don't know what the fucking social determinants of child and maternal health are yet, bitch! - so I had a (big) glass of an Australian white wine called "Woop Woop" that Jake bought at Whole Foods and a chocolate chip cookie and now I'm feeling quite better. I have the tv on in the background, I think the show is CSI, anyway they just showed a shot of the Chrysler Building and it made me miss New York, quel surprise. My mom's office was in the Chrysler Building forever. I'm flying out in three weeks, it can't come quickly enough.

My sister and brother-in-law are building a house in the Catskills and they're doing a little blog about it.

Jake and I got tickets to the San Francisco Opera. I've been to very few non-Met operas. We're seeing Rigoletto in October, and in November we're seeing Manon Lescaut, which is the first opera I was in, when I was five or six.

Wow, CSI is very dramatic! I've never seen it before. Much more exciting than trying to figure out how to describe my summer research activities in one very concise and stilted sentence.

8:23 pm - Maybe I should throw a double diamond party in the north pole
I'm taking a break from organic chemistry. My head is spinning from cycloalkanes. I can hear a train in the distance. New cat Hazel has decided that the place for her to sleep is in my sweater shelf. Benjamin is in her cat bed with her limbs sprawling out of it, and Chloe is lying on her back. When I finish my ochem homework I have to work on my Fulbright proposal. I think it would be better if I could just write: Give me a Fulbright. Sweden is cool. I'm part Swedish. My project is a really good idea, and I can sum it up in a neat seven-word title like you want: Social Determinants of Maternal and Child Health. Ok, thanks.

I haven't had time to read other people's journals consistently but I'm going to start soon.

The self-defense aerobic english lessons video on youtube is amazing. Let me off at the next corner. Take anything you want. Spare me my life. Let's go Dutch!
