Man, I feel like a woman...

This is my 400th post! Woo! So I'll do a quick rant about being female. :)

Last month kind of sucked. I ran out of a whole bunch of stuff all at once. Here's a quick breakdown of the masses of crap I had to buy, mostly due to being female.

Pads, tampons, Midol and Advil=$39
Cramp perscription=$23
Birth control pills (three months worth)=$56
Hair dye control shampoo/conditioner=$9
Hair dye=$9 (discretionary purchase...I'm shouldn't be allowed to bitch about this one. :) )
White sports bra=$27
Being a woman=priceless (And trust me, my Visa truly thanks me for my time. :p )

I don't really notice the cost of all this junk when I buy one or two things at a time. Jeepers.

Exercise today: running around plant stores

Interesting I found out about karate's stance on cross developing with different martial arts. Basically, it's "check with sensei first" which I understand completely. Unless someone mentions it to me on Saturday (not too likely...we're doing a big demonstration) I'll go to kickboxing next week, since I told them I'd be there, and then I'm going to drop it. It very adversely affected my Ultimate this week (though that could have been partly due to the occasional torrential downpours) and there are many good points brought up against cross training with kickboxing. Also, as Candyman points out, I don't exactly have a plethora of time these days.

Oops. Spoke too soon.

Last night, in terms of muscles, sucked ass. Yesterday wasn't too bad, since I was standing and walking around at work most of the day, but as soon as I sat down in my car, all my muscles went "MUHHAHAHA!!! Now we freeze!" and *cachunk* there they went. Ouch.

I'm still sore today, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. :p Well, Ultimate ought to loosen all those muscles up, especially since we'll be playing in the cold, and we'll probably be short a couple of girls. *eeps!*

Ok, starting essay now. Then going to the University to try and pick up information for teaching certificates, then to NNY's place to drool over the Drew as she drools on me.

*tentative stretch*

Cool, I'm not in agony from kickboxing. :)

This is all kind of random thoughts from early in the morning. Please don't take it personally.

I just want to reiterate a few things about my diet... Number one, it is not an "I can't eat (carbs, protein, sugar, milk, etc.)" kind of diet. It's more of an "I'm exercising like crazy, so I should be fueling my body with the correct amount and type of energy that I'm outputting". Secondly, I've been feeling physically much better than I have in AGES, probably partly due to the fact that I'm not eating like crap all the time. Thirdly, it has been pointed out to me that my feeling crappy is probably not due to eating sugar/caffiene/whatever.

To that I say that I probably shouldn't be eating junk and if I feel sick when I eat it, yay. One more reason to not eat it, even if it's not the junk food's fault. However, I'm noticing the pattern that when I eat certain things, I feel yucky. Kind of like when I'm exhausted I feel yucky, or when I ride in cars with certain people who hit the brakes too fast because they're following too close to the car in front of them *cough dad cough*, or when I read in a car/bus/skytrain I know that makes me feel nauseated. Therefore, I try to minimize doing what makes me feel bad. In this case, it's kind of like getting stung with a bee. Maybe it was the bee sting that caused an allergic reaction, or maybe it was the air you were breathing, or some random attack in your brain, but you can try to avoid bee stings and so you do.

Ow. Ouch. Ooh...owie.

I'm having some trouble with this whole "typing" thing right now. I was emailing back and forth with the Master of a local kickboxing school for the last day or two and I went down there to chat with him. Tonight happened to be the time that the white belt class met, so I got to join in. Oh. My. Goddess. I hurt. I hurt very much. There was so much cardio stuff. I have a two week free pass, so I'll be heading down there twice next week and once the week after. I don't know if I'll be joining or not, but it was a great workout and an extremely fun experience. This ought to counteract the sleeping I did this afternoon and let me actually fall asleep tonight. With any luck I also sweated out the Coke that I drank this afternoon. I had it and started feeling really crappy...I've been pretty much cutting refined sugar out of my diet for the last two weeks or so, minus the Coke slurpee that I had when I had cramps, and I didn't sleep that night either. It has to be the sugar, because I've been drinking Diet Coke with no issues. I don't drink coffee or tea, so I don't get caffiene from that either. Now I go to the shower. And to bed.

Exercise today: 1 hour of hard cardio kickboxing


*yawning, walks out of the house and starts driving down the road to tutor* BAM!! EIGHTEEN THOUSAND SIGNS LITTER THE GREENWAYS! FIFTY POUNDS OF PLASTIC FOR EVERY SQUARE METRE OF ROADSPACE!! *Karin curls up in a ball and starts whimpering*

Oh look. An election. *groan*

I support Bimkin's suggestion that one vote for the folks who have the least amount of "fecal advertising material" on the sides of the road.

Has anyone else noticed how Blogspot hosted blogs are not working about a third of the time you surf to them?! This is particularly problematic to those of us who use a Blogspot hosted blog and use it as their start page to get from their blogroll and back, then...I don't to... say... comics? Or something like that?

It's a little frustrating.

I shouldn't take naps during the day.

I only meant to be asleep until noon, but I just got up...and it's past three. Heh...uh. Whoops. Fun looking link! I wonder if there's anything like this near Vancouver. It's set in Atlanta, Georgia. *pout*

And it's on hiatus until January. *cry* Yikes. I need my Jennifer Garner fix already. Please Goddess, don't tell me I'll be reduced to renting the seasons of Party of Five that she's in.

Exercise today: 20 minutes karate, 1/2 hour crunches and weight lifting while watching Alias.

I hate school.

whyohwhyohwhyohwhy did I decide this would be a good idea?! The sun is out and it's my day off. I had the choice of going to Vancouver Island with my parents or going to the States with Candyman, and I'm stuck here doing chapter review questions. Oh, for a laptop. :p

Exercise today: nothing yet. I need to kick ass today, I'm really restless.

People are fricking idiots.

Has anyone else heard of this sex bracelet fad? What a bunch of morons people can be. I did a google on it, and it shows up as a party game for adults. Well, you know what?! Adults play STRIP POKER with cards! That means that CHILDREN SHOULD NOT PLAY SOLITARE, even on the computer because it will make them WANT TO TAKE THEIR CLOTHES OFF! Holy fsck. Seriously, I have trouble contemplating the sheer idiocy of people who think that their 9 year old child is planning to have sex based on the fact that s/he's wearing a bracelet. [edit: here's another site with a bunch of comments on the bottom.]

On kind of a cool note, we have those at work...I think I'll pick some up for myself. ;) Y'know. Since I'm an adult and all.

So many things happened yesterday.

Yesterday should have been the day from hell, but it wasn't actually that bad. I taught first thing in the morning, did the craft store, taught another two hours and then went to Vancouver to take a private lesson for karate. I got moving at 0700 and wasn't finished until 2100. All this was on less than two hours of sleep. Ye gods. I had twenty minutes in between my first teaching and going to the craft store and I was so fried that I stood in front of the telephone book with tears streaming down my face whimpering "I don't know what number to call" several times before my mother sent me to lie down until I had to leave. Things could ONLY get better from there. :) They did. :) I had the supervisor that I really like at work...she insists on people taking their breaks, at the right time and for the right length and will only call you back if the situation is uber desperate.

Teaching went well. I discovered this morning that I'm going to be getting more than $900 for the month. Um...holy crap? There goes my credit card debt. *poof* Here comes my savings account *cha-ching* I am pleased.

My lesson yesterday went spectacularly well. I could feel myself improving pretty much every three minutes. I don't think I've EVER been this excited about learning something. I'm really looking forward to today's dojo workout. It's hard to describe. I practiced a lot last week and this has really helped me to kick everything into a higher gear. I'm pretty happy about that.

Last night I got to hang out with Candyman, Jeff and his lady friend. I'm not going to go into much detail, but a really nice time was had by all, and I managed to behave myself while she was there.

So that's about it right now. How was YOUR day?

Exercise yesterday: 1 hour karate lesson

Thursday, May 20, 2004


Oh, do I ever want to go to this. Anyone want to go to California for a weekend?!

Exercise today: 2 hours Ultimate


Ok, I'm going to the book store now. Things I need to do today: homework, laundry, putting away laundry, picking up paint from work, painting sign for karate, phoning Visa about some money they owe me, Ultimate, practice karate. Things I want to do today: put up garden arch, do some writing, hang out with CM, gardening stuff. There's probably a few more things in there as well. :p

I think I need to sleep now.

Saw Shrek 2 with Kittens tonight. That was fun. :) We're spending more time together, or chatting. This is very good. I'm going to bed now. I taught this morning and am very tired. :p

Tuesday, May 18, 2004


All is good. CM came over so I could be angst-y to him in person rather than on the phone. And the moral of the story is...don't leave stuff in the refridgerator. Oh, wait. That's wrong. (for the one person who will get the reference...)

Nope, the moral is "don't take Karin lingerie shopping when she's angst-y or else nothing will get bought". However, money doesn't need to be spent and the potential buyer still gets to see nekkidness. (An aside: with all of the hits for "gragh" I've been getting, I wonder if nekkid and various other not real words will get hits as well... hmmm...)


My head has been spinning for the last couple of days. :( I slept a LOT this weekend, which made me figure I was probably sick. Turns out it's PROBABLY just allergies. First time I've ever really had seasonal allergies, so I'm hoping that's all it is and it'll clear up in the next little while. Waiting for CM to call me, so I'm sort of doing laundry and cleaning and stuff.

*ring ring*

After 20 minutes of me whining to him, I finally realized how pathetic I sounded and got off the phone. *grumble* Not doing anything with him today. :( We're both doing stuff. *double grumble* I want to go buy some stripper platform boots, but I'm currently broke-ish. Gah. Bringing in groceries. :p

What a car's for

Tomorrow Justy and I are going to do model rocket related stuff. I'll have to get my launch box out of my car, where it has been since about July of last year. This is why my car is a's a holding place for all my hobbies. I've got about twenty pounds of soap which is ready to be made into bars and pretty coloured shapes; that's been in there since at least December. I pulled out various articles of clothing...some of which had been in there since I BOUGHT the car, back in June. Currently I'm wearing a pair of jeans I found in there that had been missing since Valentine's.

Exercise today: I was laaaazy. And I enjoyed it. Except for the whole "I think I'm getting sick" part. :(

Quarter-life Crisis

The words below are not mine...they came to me in an email...but I know some of you out there who are going through exactly what is articulated below. I was...and I quit everything and went out to sort my shit out on the other side of the world.

What are YOU going to do about it....

They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realising that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.

You start realising that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognise is that they are realising that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job...and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realising that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you. Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realise that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't.

One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realise that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lay in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person.

One nightstands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic.

You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision.

You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself...and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!

What you may not realise is that everyone reading this relates to it.

We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.

Send this to your twenty-something friends...maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...

"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Skirts and Ravioli

I'm back in civilization. It's so good to be someplace where we have cable, internet and a working DVD player. :) Yup, Meesh and I were really roughing it...our TV didn't have a remote control!

We went down and the border guards took our can of ravioli...luckily he was really nice about it, apologizing for the stupidity of it. It had beef in it, so for those who are keeping abreast of the "mad cow" situation, that was some fallout. Weird.

A good time was had by all. Meesh and I built a fire and I toasted marshmallows; I think I still have some goo under my ring. It still feels sticky. Presumably nothing was left behind, the weather was gorgeous and I wanna go BAAAACK!!

We went into Bellingham for a bit and I picked up a really cute skirt and a shirt from Hot Topic. We only got lost once each on the way there and back, but we made it. I had to leave my skirt at the trailer because we were down less than 24 hours. :(

That's about it for now. Fun was had. I'll be going back again, probably during the week again. Keep an eye on the side schedule for times and if some people want to try and coordinate with me, we'll see what we can do.

Exercise yesterday: Tossed the disc around, short nature walk, stretching and run through my kata, 1 hour Ultimate

Exercise the day before: 45 minute walk down at the Ranch.

Wednesday, May 12, 2004


I'm going down to the States for the night with Meesh; we should be back around 3 pm PST tomorrow afternoon, in time for me to get to Ultimate. I woke up at 0823 this morning without the alarm...because I forgot to turn it on, and I was supposed to be teaching at 0745. Eep. And I don't have kid's phone number, so I'm kind of hooped. Well, I'll see them and apologize Friday. On the plus side, I made Rice Krispy squares, went for a walk and did some schoolwork, all before noon...not bad considering that normally I'm not awake until around noon...ish. Closer to one on many days.

I want to go to the bookstore today for a couple hours, but I'm very tired. I think I'll shower, pack for tonight and Ultimate tomorrow, eat something, then do some reading. If I don't make it to the bookstore today I've got time on Friday.

Exercise today: 35 minute walk up and down hills with the maternal unit.

Tuesday, May 11, 2004


Today I got to see one of my best friends whom I haven't seen since before Christmas, unless you count two days ago when we accidentally ran into each other at the mall but we both had to get going and we were going to try to see a movie, but didn't get a chance to. *gasp for breath* So we hung out for a bit tonight and went for a long walk, which was quite a feat, since there's no flat parts where I live. It was nice though. We're going to try and get together once a week to do active stuff.

Exercise today: the below mentioned karate plus 45 minute walk up and down hills.


I should write a better review of Van Helsing. Here it goes...

Overall, I found it to be a really terrific movie. The opening sequence made it worth the price of admission (more so since I didn't pay, but even if I had, it would have been enough) and it just got better from there in. The storyline seemed tight, the fight scenes were great, the costuming was phenomenal (I have a weakness for a woman in a corset, loose shirt and tight pants. Very pirate...). I found some of the CGI to be a little weak...there were some issues with the characters looking too...slippery, especially when there was wall climbing involved. I had the same problem with Spiderman, a movie I love and own, so it's not really a big issue. I enjoyed the way they treated Frankenstein's was very close to the way he is in the original book and very unlike the way he is portrayed in other movies. The Brides were amazingly well done, and extremely hot. Their costuming was just r0xx0r, and so were their br...brain power...yeah. ;) I didn't find Dracula to be sexy enough...I have a thing for vampires, so I like them to have serious sex appeal, but there was one scene where as CM puts it, he suddenly turns on the charm (and the Dom nature... :D ) and is suddenly much sexier.

Ooh. I haven't mentioned Hugh Jackman at all yet, have I? Well, I don't want to get in trouble, so I'll remove most of the vowels in a big secret code. ;)

Ok. I think that was good. :)

Also, Kate Beckinsale has changed position with Nicole Kidman in my "all time favourite actresses" list. It was funny...I could not remember Nicole Kidman's name last night, I was so knocked out by Kate's performance. Candyman had to remind me... :/

New favourite actress list- Jennifer Garner, Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Kidman

Exercise today: 1/2 hour karate

Really quick notes:

Saw "Man on Fire" the other day. The movie is good. The book is better. Read the book first.

Saw "Van Helsing" today. The movie is VERY good. The women are beautiful. Watch the movie. Then read the comic.

The End.

Exercise today: some karate

Hmph. *pout*

While there are certainly things more annoying, there is currently nothing which is more annoying than having really cool news and not having anyone home to hear it. Well, it's a good thing I have a voice on the internet, isn't it? :)

Everyone's always told me that I should work in a bookstore, or own a used bookstore or variations of the same theme. So today I went to my current favourite used bookstore and the owner had roughly eighty bazillion boxes of books that people had brought in, so I offered to help him out. :) I'll be going in tomorrow for a couple of hours. *happy* Note to self: remember to bring allergy medication...there's about 38,000 books in that store, and probably a bit of dust.

Exercise today: 2 hours karate

Yes! Media!

My mom told me yesterday that my parents were going to buy me a printer to do school stuff with. Woo! So she and I were at Costco today and saw a printer. And we bought it. Well, she bought it. :) It's a HP PSC 1350 if that means anything to anyone. And if it doesn't, well there's the link for y'all.

It's nice. Printer/scanner/copier with a spot to plug the memory card for a digital camera into it. If I had a digital camera. Actually, I have a memory card somewhere that's around. I'll see if I can use it to get some of those photos off of it.

Blog Problems

This has been an issue a couple of times. Has anyone else ever gotten in trouble for something that you've written in your blog/LJ?

Thoughtful post (!!)

As usual, on a night that I should be going to bed early, I decided to post. Actually, it was more of an "I need to post" but in a good way. I don't know how long this is going to be. :) The lyrics this evening are from Aerosmith's "Amazing". Warning: strange internal workings are occurring in this one.

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy to see me
Through all my sins

There were times in my life
When I was going insane
Trying to walk through the pain

Despite coming from a good, relatively stable home with no abuse or other domestic problems including drug and alcohol abuse, I have had many issues. Maybe it's just that I'm too dramatic, or too naive, or something else that is simply a habit, or else it's something biological or chemical like depression, ADD, etc. ad nauseum. Simply put there's not really any good ways to determine what it is. Of course, there's also those who feel that these "biological or chemical" problems are simply lack of character or things that can easily be changed. I'm not going to judge one way or another...I don't really have the research, and well...this isn't really about that.

I've been struggling for a long time to "fit in" or to at least appear to and forget about my general alienation from the rest of my friends, people who I know through work, school or other activities. I felt that I was missing out on things. I would do things to try and gain attention...nothing major... trying to be special in some way. That was always the rub. I always felt that I needed something to distinguish me from the crowd. It didn't matter that people would tell me that I was special or that there was something different about me. I needed lots of independent confirmation to boost my self esteem. I'm sure I was truly a pain in the ass a lot of the time. :p

When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave
But couldn't get out the door
I was so sick and tired
Of living a lie
I was wishing that I would die

I've definitely had death wishes before. I used to cut myself, until I promised someone very special to me that I wouldn't. Even though I'm not in touch with him anymore, I've kept my promise although it's been very difficult for me. I don't think that there was ever a serious suicide attempt, but the pain used to release pressure for me. In lieu of cutting myself, I used other methods to hurt myself. Again, this sometimes made me feel that I was special in some way, that by doing this I was grounding myself in reality again. I know that doesn't really make sense...sorry. :( Even recently, I would lie in bed hating myself and willing myself to die overnight. Or I would drive really fast at night, tempting myself to just go over the railing.

It's difficult to try and get help for something like that. Eating disorders are recognized, but vacuous death wishes seem to be less serious, especially when I looked at them. They are not seen as immediately dangerous, which I suppose is technically true, but they are very damaging to a person's self esteem and the rest of their life.

It's amazing
With the blink of an eye
You finally see the light
It's amazing
When the moment arrives
That you know you'll be all right
It's amazing
And I'm saying a prayer
For the desperate hearts tonight

So I don't know if I'm ever going to be completely "cured" of this, or even if I want to. While it really and truly sucks to be in "the depths of despair" as Anne of Green Gables puts it, it is so absolutely fucking unbelieveably GOOD to be out of it. It's like that moment in the "Wizard of Oz" where it goes from black and white to Technicolor. Suddenly everything seems good. Suddenly there is a purpose to life.

How high can you fly with broken wings?
Life's a journey, not a destination
And I just can't tell just what tomorrow will bring
You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk

So this is what I'm doing now. I'm crawling, but I've got a journey in mind. C/M once told me that I seem to believe that life is a spiritual journey. I tend to agree with his assessment. I'm starting to find...myself? Inner peace? The meaning of life? I don't necessarily know if it's real, but it makes me happy, and if it makes me happy, it can't be that bad. ;)

In other, lighter news:
1) Today (May 6) is the two year anniversary of the day that C/M, NNY and myself met.
2) Our first Ultimate game of the season was this evening. Overall, we played quite well, winning both of our games. Yours truly played the best I've ever felt that I've played before, scoring one point and making a spectacular 89 point landing out of bounds. I'm especially happy about the way that I played because I'd felt earlier today that I was badly out of shape and was not impressed at all with the way I'd trained in the winter.
3) Wendy's salads are REALLY good.
4) Babies are really amazing and cool and I'll blog that another time, I'm sure. :)

Exercise today: 2 hours of Ultimate

Fear the babby

I'm going to spend the night at no name yet's house watching Drew tonight. She and her partner will still be there, but hopefully they'll be sleeping. I'm calling myself the "midnight to five am shift".


Then tomorrow, if we're awake, NNY and I will go to Movies for Mommies. :) Then Ultimate. I'll get to learn if I can play Ultimate while asleep on my feet. I'm wearing my snazzy new Gaia jersey. I am da sexy.

Exercise today: couple times through my kata while waiting for my student.

C/M pointed out that with the post about all those referrers, I probably increased the odds of people finding their way to my site while looking for "gragh paper". Let's see what other search terms I can use to artificially inflate my search engine odds.

I like how people find me via the Evanenecence song, which I didn't transcribe completely correctly. I also enjoy the "gragh" paper. It's pronounced "graff" and spelled "graph" people. It's also funny that words I make up get searched for (fishlets). And whoever wanted that "i rape my bride wedding nite", first, learn how to spell. Weird. Odder that I got the hit.

I got an extra hundred dollars on my paycheque this week, so after paying off some of the stuff that I needed to for this time period I went to the mall. :) I actually was very restrained. I bought a white sports bra that I have needed for some time, some white knee socks to go with my Mary Jane shoes (black strappy dress shoes with a slight heel and closed toes) and a cute tan skirt for $5. All in all, I wound up spending less than fifty bucks, including lunch. That's pretty good for me...I have had some serious spending issues in the recent past. So, my only impulse purchase was the tan skirt, even though I hadn't planned on picking up the socks today. White knee socks are at Sears for $4.99 if anyone's interested.
