a few days ago, a friend asked me who i thought was a cute japanese idol actress person (because she is lame and all she does is obsess over skinny japanese boys that look like girls). so i thought and i thought and all i could think of was that girl from jdrama “shiroi haru”. i didn’t even remember her name. so i had to search up the drama and find the name yoshitaka yuriko just to respond to that question. anyway, apparently she’s in some new drama since last time, this time with a lead role. so i thought, why not? i have finals this week, so i should start watching a 10 episode drama about romance between a pair of college students and one is dying from a terminal illness. sounds like a great idea.

so i watched 3 episodes at double speed to speed up the time. it seems like they are moving away from the cancer diseases these days. i guess people are tired of leukemia and the actresses are tired of shaving their heads (or putting on bald wigs). yoshitaka has some mysterious, nonhereditary, degenerative brain disease that has a name that is too hard to be pronounced. her only symptom is feeling dizzy and falling down. and she takes a plain white small round tablet (kind of looks like generic lorazepam) for treatment. oh yea, apparently the disease progresses pretty quickly, she’ll die within a year of diagnosis. and with 6 months left, she’ll find true love from a guy she just met in episode 1. i think i see the connection now. true love must be part of the the brain’s degenerative process. even though i’m brain dead, i still haven’t found any true love, so i’m guessing that true love is related to the rate of degeneration. my brain has already completely atrophied so my -d[brain]/dt will be a lot less magnitude than her -d[brain]/dt. i really need to find a way to speed up the process. all these kids in these jdramas have found true love in high school or college. i’ve already graduated from all that and i’m still lonely. oh, forever doomed.

usually the bill for my rent shows up in my mailbox or taped to my door in an envelope about 3 days before the end of the month. so i was confused why i hadn’t received it on the 27th or 28th. maybe thanksgiving. so i waited until yesterday, monday. they should be back. still didn’t receive. i checked today, mailwoman was putting mail in the mailbox. didn’t receive anything yet. hm. later i walked out and found a christmas card like envelope taped to my door. oh, how nice. maybe that’s why it was delayed. well, it was just a bill.

flow charts are stupid. need more variables. more variables within variables. more differentials. too simple. but i guess they work. bah

Esomeprazole = S-stereoisomer of Omeprazole
Armodafinil = R-stereoisomer of modafinil
Escitalopram = S-stereoisomer of Citalopram
Arkansas = R-stereoisomer of Kansas?

the scariest feeling is the thought of “i don’t know”. but we try hard and guess at the best answer. good thing life is multiple choice. free response i don’t knows would be macabre. is that even a correct use for macabre? i just feel like using that word. it doesn’t even feel scary to me. i think of a game with beads when i think of the word macabre. like a board game. or something. i don’t know why.

IgE antibodies are good for our bodies. they defend against helminths and worms and evil parasites that try to invade. too bad the centers for disease control and prevention and public health organizations have made worms infections relatively rare in the western world. now the cells that make these antibodies are depressed and lonely. they feel useless, so they attack pollen, peanuts, and delicious foods. we need more worms. come back to us.

overslept again. why is it so hard to wake up? blankets are too warm. the temperature outside drops to almost freezing during the night. should study. addicted to warcraft 3 the weekend before finals. no more playing games!
