This blog mostly contains my latest escapades in the Pokémon fandom. Be it related to the games, the anime, my collection, or PC itself, this blog should have it. I assume this will mostly be filled with collection updates, since that's my main interest in the fandom, but we shall see. Thanks for reading!

If you're interested in my gaming habits outside of Pokémon, you might be interested in my Gamespot blog, perhaps. If you want my day-to-day ramblings, check out my Livejournal. The latter may have questionable content or not-quite-PG ratings, so use discretion. :P

Taking a term off.

Posted January 11th, 2011 at 10:56 PM by Cherrim

It's way surreal sitting here on a Tuesday night, getting ready to go to bed, knowing I have... absolutely nothing to do tomorrow, or the day after, or the day after that... and so on.

@_@ I'm taking a term off due to health and other related reasons (there's a slightly tmi LJ entry here if you're interested). Long story short, I'm putting in a petition to get rid of some horrible terms due to health issues during them and, in the mean time, am trying out a drug I've never had before to help with my issues. So my parents and I decided it'd be best if I didn't possibly fail another term (if it doesn't work), or take courses that'll work against my standing if the petition goes through, so I'm not taking any classes this term. And they don't even want me to work (or my mom doesn't, anyway, haha) so... I get a few months to just sit around doing nothing. Which will be fun at first! But probably very boring, very quickly. :s

Hopefully it means I won't be so scarce here now though? I practically disappeared last term because I was struggling to keep on top of classes. The drug I was on gave me the horrible side effect of insomnia, so I've been fighting that since October. In a good week, I probably get about 18 to 20 hours of sleep (although that sounds like a lot... maybe less?). Multiply that by the last few months and I have not been very attentive toward anything in life, much less the internet. x_o Only site I've been active on is GPX+ because you only have to mindlessly click things and it's all my attention span could keep up with. But! I'm done with that and hopefully the insomnia will slip away quickly now that I'm off that medication. And since I have few obligations in the next little while, I can spend more time here. :D I missed you guys!


ugggh I feel weird posting RL blogs here sometimes since I usually just talk fandom here, but kind of feel I owe an explanation for my activity last term. :(

    Pretty much. :( The first time I saw one, my browser was not maximized and was pretty small and I thought Nica's profile was broken because it looked horrible on that browser resolution. And since it was my first impression it's kind of stuck with me. XD;

    aaah D: Poor girl, you shouldn't even be online now :[ Go get some extra rest before you get on PC!

    But as for me, I did nothing exciting. Just working and studying, pretty much.

    Might be TMI, but I have similar problems, so I feel your pain (quite literally. orz), I hope they can get you on a medication (or medications) that start working together better. I know it's such a hassle to deal with. x_o Sounds tough, in the way of it effecting your college courses so much.. I really hope things all fall in place for you sometime soon. ♥
