Physiotherapists Are MagicVulcanNinjas (and I Need to Get More Used to Nudity)

First up to explain (the first half of) the title. Ninja because pressure points and stuff (I’m thinking more Naruto than real-life/historical ninjas. Specifically thinking Hyuuga Neji), Vulcan because Vulcan Nerve Pinch, and magic because, well, how the hell does poking me in the armpit and pressing on my butt loosen up my back like this??

I started going to physiotherapy a year and a half ago, since I should’ve been going for years to help with my back (and probably also my knees). I got into doing weekly classes, and it was awesome and really helpful. And then I ran out of money. That’s what happens when every 5 weeks you have to fork out $45 more than you get a fortnight, and still afford your own food and travel. [I hear in the US they don’t have fortnights? That seems so weird, having to say ‘every two weeks’ or ‘bi-weekly’ when you can just say ‘fortnightly’. Anyway, I’ll stop now before I start a linguistics rant that no one will listen to.]

Because I Need to Look Busy or My Day Will Turn to Shit

My day has actually been pretty good, thus not wanting it to nose-dive. What started as a bit of a heated political debate that was getting kinda personal turned into a loan, so that my partner and I can get through this fortnight without denying ourselves food or reneging on the sale of a few monitors. Plus I was a good little cookie and made an appointment I need – well, I called and they’re sending out the forms I need to fill out. Funny thing: I may not be overweight enough to use this clinic, seeing as it’s an obesity clinic, and a weight estimation of 120kg (264 lbs) – with no mention of me being 6ft, or over if my back is having a good day – only just got me over the line to be sent the forms. I also got hold of my partner’s specialist appointment time, and his doctor will be sending out a new prescription of his testosterone, so he won’t be going 3 weeks without it (that’s really not fun). AND I called back about a job application, and got everything sent in for it. And I even used the scanner without breaking anything! Yay me.

Woo Hoo, Finally Started a Blog

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while, for a few reasons/purposes, and finally got around to it this evening on a whim.

I’m hoping I stick with it. I don’t know if what I’ve got to say is important enough for anyone to want to read, but having it out in the open might make me stick with it!

Some of this will be random musings or rants or just writing down what’s in my head. Sometimes I might delve into discussing serious issues – I think about it, then I’m not sure if I can do it right or will just sound stupid. And I might get back into practicing my fiction writing.
