my mind is still telling me to stay up past midnight but my body quit two hours ago!
i can't stop thinking of things i need/want to do! but i have to get up in a few hours! blarrrgh!

today a *mostly* quiet sunday at work. lots of manual diffs to finish in morning rounds. wilma was joking, "who are all these young new doctors wanting manual diffs? we'll have to sit them down and have a talk with coffee and donuts..." tee hee. i want to think of her and sharon and jo and loretta and liberty and brenda as my hematology mamas! cindy is like my traveling aunty with a million stories. later in the day right before i left there were a crapload of rapid flu and rapid strep tests to do from the ER. must be a bug going around.

one of the perks of my job is regularly knowing what my hemoglobin is. i'm as normal boring and normal as blood can get so sometimes i get drawn as a patient control for the daily QC.
here's an example of fun stuff i get to do at work- figuring out what the numbers mean:

my cbc and diff from the last two weeks.
pretty boring normal.

anyway, enough about work.
i am still wearing salon pas on my neck two days later because i feel all beat up from the crazy moshing! me and AOn were the FIRST FUCKING ONES THERE! and i was standing right in front of the stage! so crazy cool! opening bands were pimpbot, prescott, and half step down. all were rocking so hard and i am officially a *fangirl*! then, the atarisssssss! they played a lot of songs that i knew- your boyfriend sucks, the saddest song, in this diary, boys of summer (of couuuuurse!!), take offs and landings, and some others i don't know or don't remember right now! my love love love to AOn who wasn't getting as crazy as i was, thanks for coming with me, i had so so so much fun!
so what's next guys? who wants to see devil wears prada with me? :D i'm waiting for something good to come to town. last show before ataris was taking back sunday and that was september 2009! i don't want this to be a once a year thing- i work too hard to rock out that little. :3

today's pic spam:

my poupee girl!

poupeegirl fashion brand community

i want this outfit irl!

and one of my sister:


still playing aroud with settings. i think i am going to tunrn up the contrast in the camera because this pic i bumped up the levels in post processing.

speaking of photos, i wonder if any of my pics made it on to the lomowall/lomoworld map at photokina!! i wish i was at photokina. so much camera awsmness going down over there.

work tomorrow at 6am, so now
back to my dream... at tempo 119...


so so so so so...
a little birdie told me...
UH might have a [bachelors] degree program for cell and molecular biology.
like, OMG. that is exactly what i want! maybe even more than a micro degree or being an MT (or a pathologist or an ID doc or a histologist or a mortician)- i'd like to work in research. and these days everything is going molecular. right now you have to get a biology degree with a concentration in cell and molecular. but this would be a whole program based on the awesomeness that is genes and biotechnology! even more delightful- i also hear that the program is based on mattT's molecular work. they took his syllabus and his lab manual and his text book (which is ok since his class morphed into cancer biology class). he thinks they may or may not take his experiments as well. so basically, i've already taken that class and two of its complementary classses: tissue culture and cell bio (albeit a low level cell bio + immuno).
since i'm not very far into my bachelors degree (read: miles away from a bachelors degree) and i already have a full time job, i might wait around and see if this program comes to fruition. :)

the second thing, is a little bit more than just a rumor but still not finalized.
an evening shift tech is leaving us. (someone i knew from before clh, too! he used to work in the research lab.) so that leaves an opening for night shift. and the eves crew has been putting in a good word for me.

in other news,
guess which lucky bitch is going to see The Ataris tomorrow night!!!!
and with my lovli yummiestars, too! everybody's working for the weekend... can't wait to rock out on friday. <3

oh won't you send me a hype?

if i walked around with a caption above my head, 50% of the time it would say "I AM A NAVY BLUE POPSICLE". weekends are for being a girl. :)

i am starting to wonder if i even know what is "fashionable" anymore. i've been browsing lookbook for the past hour and have not seen ONE thing that actually looks flattering. not that it would change how i personally dress... it's just that lightbulb, "oh" feeling like when you realize The Matrix is 11 years old or why don't they play my favorite songs on the radio anymore? and your computer OS is two generations old a.k.a... i'm getting old. and the things that i used to know are replaced with the new generation of young bright people. i turned into a "has-been", old lady and didn't even know it. but i'm ok with that. :)


i'm sick. have a gross cough and congestion.
probably payback for having really fun weekends.

school started, i love my one class.
i also love having one class.
only junk thing is i have to make up for hours of work i miss going to class...
so i only have one day off per week. T____T
i am so tired...

work has been ok, too.
still in heme. i am finally starting to count as an actual person (and not a trainee).
there's just one tech who thinks i can't do ANYTHING right. :(
i'm trying my best to prove her wrong. C:

and now for some photo spam...
still trying to figure out how to best utilize my dslr.
some functions don't correlate with film so i still have to do a lot of leveling in ps to get the right contrast. i'm sure there's a setting to help with this on the camera (why doesn't the metering fix the darkness? i should stop auto metering, maybe?)
am currently lusting for the 70-200 f/2.8
hoping my friend, king danny, can hook me up with a good deal.
