Sunday, March 15

My grandmother's brother died this morning. He was sick this whole week, and had died several times but they kept resuscitating him. He had diabetes and an enlarged heart, and he used to have a hole in his heart, but they did open heart surgery on him to close up the hole a long time ago. He hadn't been taking his diabetes medications because he didn't want to, but he only recently fell sick in general. He was very swollen and had a very large belly, and seemed very sick. He was 70 years old.

Well, I've been thinking that I might collaborate this blog with my journal on deviantART, since that one is updated more frequently because it's combined with my account that I'm trying to keep up. But so far, we'll just have to see. XP

Anyway, this week started pretty rough, but it's starting to get better now. I have a ton of tests today, so I have to get through them... and I am finally keeping up with my accounts now. I'm learning a time schedule for things and a way to do things, and I'm getting better every day. This really is a great time for change! I'm starting to feel better, more accepting, more motivated in things that I hadn't been motivated in before, and basically overall I'm starting to feel a sense of wellness. I need to read the Bible more, so I'll find some passages online to read every day or so. I've also found out, and this isn't the first time, that if you get only a few (4 or 5) hours of sleep each night, you tend to be more alert the next day. But if you get enough sleep, you just feel normal. The awareness is helping a little, although my eyes feel different sometimes and if I don't eat a good breakfast the next day (which this usually happens as I wake up late and don't have much time for breakfast if I get only small amounts of sleep), then I get hungry very quickly and it makes me feel exhausted. But I always feel better after I eat lunch, so it all comes out to be good, and by the time I leave school I feel great and couldn't feel better. But that's life, I guess. I am where I am, and that's how my life is. So I'm just grateful to God for it.

Well, I've been having a ton of different things happening lately. Our school lost the event that I was talking about, and I stayed up way too late last night drawing something and now I am really tired. Even through all of this, the anime club that I've been talking about should be getting bigger by next meeting, and more people should be able to come. I can't wait! I'm already working on a banner for them, and I can't wait until this gets bigger. It's going to be so fun. <3

However, with all of these good things going on, there are always some bad things. Recently, I have found that when I go to highly commercialized and 3rd-party overridden sites (like Ad-Aware or Magic Jack), even when I deny their cookies, they spawn a never-ending cookie request that barrages your computer and won't stop even if you remove all cookie permissions, exit out of the page, or even if you restart your browser. They continue to come, sometimes even two or three at a time, every 30 to 50 seconds or so. They never stop, so if you don't accept/accept for session/deny them, they pile up quickly by the tens, and possibly even by the hundreds. This has never happened to me before, so I am assuming that this is very new. It started happening the day before yesterday. The only way to fix it that I have discovered so far is to delete every cookie you have- a significant blow to anyone who likes to stay logged in to multiple accounts all the time (Hint: me). I've even tried only deleting every cookie besides my account cookies- and that doesn't work either. I'm guessing that now, just by visiting the site, it can infiltrate your cookies and corrupt all of them in some hidden way, causing hundreds upon hundreds of 3rd party sites to begin periodically trying to set their own cookies on your computer until you destroy all infected cookies. I think modest ads and things are fine, but ads that use cookies to personally infiltrate your computer and track you for their purposes? That is beyond wrong. The internet still has so far to go in this world... *sigh*

Friday, March 6

Everyone is insane right now. At my school, they're having a certain event as a challenge against another school, and right now, the score is tied. Everyone is excited, and some people have even made an "inspirational video" to get everyone revved up for later today. They amuse me. But my main focus is actually tomorrow, when I'll be going to my first anime convention meeting, and I'll also be watching two movies that I love that don't usually come on TV, but happened to be scheduled recently. I'm just so happy! :) And I'm glad that I can do most of my homework quickly now (I've gotten frustrated with it) so that I can update all of my other accounts, but mainly my deviantART one, because it deserves it. I'm starting to keep up with many things now, and I'm content. I'm starting to eat healthier, I refuse to use microwaves, and I'm eating more organic food than inorganic food. Everything's pretty much just going great! ~

Wednesday, March 4

Yeah, so I haven't posted in almost two months- but it's been pretty hard for me to get regular updates here. I have to get used to blogging again. >.<

Anyway, in other news... I'm learning that procrastination is not the answer, and doing hommework all at once is. Because you have less on your mind, have more free time, and are very content in general. Also, I've learned that microwaves are horrendous to your health. In a nutshell, it decreases your intelligence, puts toxins in your body, decreases the nutritional value of food, and overall hurts your health in a very significant way. I have vowed to eliminate the microwave and instead to use the stove or the toaster oven- which work much better, are sometimes actually quicker than microwaves, and are safe (unless you use an oven with fire heating- then be careful with the fire, of course). Another thing... that katana I ordered nearly a year ago? Still not in. It requires patience in times like these, so I'm giving it patience. I'm updating things on many of my accounts, so that things can be updated and fresh and new, and etc. So basically, it's life as usual! I do hope to blog more in the coming year than I have recently, though- so just bear with me for a while! ~
