I realize I haven't posted much about anything recently and that's not going to change tonight. Just a few things:

  • Currently on the border of A/B in Biology classes. Over 50% of the students are failing, so it's hard to do better.
  • Just finished a paper for a proposed socio-ecological model of sugar effects in the American population. It took one month of research, over 70 references.
  • Changed minor in Public Health to a double major with Microbiology.
  • The more research I do, the more it looks like my adrenal glands have been damaged. Trying to get into a doctor.
  • For everyone in RL I haven't talked to recently, I had a legal name change back in July to the one I've been going by for 10 years.

    Also, Colbert made me feel better about the elections by putting everything into perspective.

    You changed your name? o_O

    Awesome work with the Biology class and the research paper.

    I thought we always knew that about your IQ? But IQ tests are fun anyhow.

    Ach, hope the adrenal issue isn't too bad... or easily reversed or something. I don't know anything about adrenal damage, but I hope you're okay.

    And while I still have plenty of reason to believe these elections really will have a terrible far-reaching effects, that Colbert segment did make me feel a little less bitter about the whole ordeal.

    It's just officially Jess now. Not a big change.

    The IQ thing more ties into the current health problems, which I'm not sure what to do about at the moment. I got an appointment with my primary on December 2nd, so we'll see.

    Oregon came out better than most states in this last election. I didn't want Kitzhaber, but I really didn't want Dudley.

    Hey, Jess! Glad to know you're doing allright :) Or, at least, I hope you are? You sound like classes are going great, but the adrenal glands thing is disturbing. :(

    Speaking of which... I just recovered from a 24-hour vomiting... something or other. Work is unbelievably busy, but you always get the day off when you're vomiting!! 8D But seriously, I'm doing fine. I should be home for Thanksgiving weekend. I hope I can see you then!
