I will be twenty-six-years-old (26). OMFG...

Twenty-six (26) is a nice number. A really, really nice number.

I cannot wait.

Holy shit, I cannot wait.

I'm still around and I ain't forgot about ya'll. Things have just been quick & hectic. I got 2 tests next week and a speech to give (Imma do it on Hazel Scott-I'm so excited!!) in another two.

Just hang on, okay?

Had a Good 1st Day!

I be still sleepy this morning (I kinda wanna go back to sleep until 9am-my pharmacology class thankfully only starts at 1pm), but I had a pretty good day yesterday. Wasn't nearly as bad as I thought, teehee! :D

Also, happy post-eclipse day, everyone! Love ya'll!

And how are ya'll doin'? :D

...Which one a'ya'll wanna go to nursing school on Monday for me? I be so nervous that my afro being sprinin' out of place with the nervous energy.

Ya'll be alright. Just, like...cram the anatomy & physiology and microbiology books over the weekend. Don't be afraid of learning different needle lengths and, yes, most of the mannequins you gon' work on will be indistinguishable white men (kinda like the White House, y'know?).

Ya'll could do it.

Anybody love Amarie? Any volunteers?

Monday, 8AM. That's all I'm asking; that's all you gotta do.



--Amarie

Yay!

Okay, there was half white girls in my class...but the other half was fellow gals of color, mostly black!!! And a good chunk of them were friends from my spring semester prerequisite classes. Yay!!!



--Amarie
amarie24: (doctor claire temple)
I am simultaneously excited and nervous. Gonna see all of my new classmates and at least most of my new teachers. Yay!

We're gonna do CPR and BLS (basic life support, AKA first aid) on this day. And then the next day, Thursday, we're supposed to go over things like bloodborne pathogens (basically disease-causing microorganisms that inhabit & come from the blood), registration, etc.

I do have one caveat, tho: I bet' not walk into that classroom and be surrounded by white girls. I bet' not.

Fellow black girls, you better have come thru. I can't be miserable in school for a year. You better have come thru.


--Amarie
amarie24: (Surprised Tiana)
CHECK OUT THIS OPEN ENVELOPE!!!




...Fuck my life, I'm still in shock. Just fuck my life.

I'm Almost Done...

Ya'll remember when I mentioned a story's first chapter that I worked on for a whopping three years? And now I'm already done with that first chapter, but I gotta post the second chapter with it?

I am almost done with the second chapter.

I am almost done and am coming closer and closer to publishing this fic...holy freakin' shit. I can taste it...

Sometime this week...maybe even sometime tonight...

I can taste it.

-SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!-

P.S I'm feeling much better from yesterday, by the way! Thanks a ton to everyone who checked in on me! I'm well-recovered now! :D

Ahhh...

Fresh, clean house. Nothin' quite like it.

I'm always beat after cleaning house, but it's so worth it when you can relax afterwards. Yep, yep!! :D

Y'know...

This looks like a beautiful, beautiful morning for a walk. Nice, bright, sunny, and not too hot!

Too bad Mommy threw my only exercise shoes away just because they have giant holes in them even though I can walk with them just fine.

I mean, really. How often does one come across a rusty nail on their morning power walks, huh? Huh? :(

And she ain't even wasted time adding to the trash, either. Already, my beloved walking shoes have egg shells, grease, freakin laundry-fuzz from the dryer (ya'll know what I'm talking about), and empty tea packets on them.

This is so unfair.

-sniffles and sobs-

Note: I'm posting this in a funny/ironic tone. Sorry if I confused anybody! Amarie's actually getting brand new, spankin' Sketchers, too! :D

Mommy bought me the new Lego Batman Movie.

I hadn't seen it in theaters, but I already knew I'd love it. And I do. I have watched next to nothing else since then. An easy-peasy 10/10.

Just...the crude, quirky humor coupled with actually digging into, solving, and amassing what makes Batman tick (hint, hint: family). Like...it even has Dick-fucking-Grayson in it and references that Dick can speak Romanian. And it has Dick explicitly referring to Bruce in multiple terms of "Daddy". I just...I just...

Ya'll.

The Lego Batman Movie has henceforth destroyed me.

A Plea to My Head

amarie24: (Worried Misty Knight)
C'mon, now. Cut this debilitating headache mess out. Please. Pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top.

Please cut it out.

I already ain't cleaned house on Sunday night like I wanted to 'cause of you. Ain't washed my glorious afro 'cause of you Sunday night, either. And now I ain't even done my daily moisturizing and combing routine for my afro today. Again, because of you.

I barely got energy to even get into the shower and make food.

C'mon, now. head. C'mon, now. I got things to do. I got posts to write, friends to talk to, internet browsing time to waste, games to play, YouTube videos to watch, and more posts to write.

I got things to do.

Please. I'm begging you at this point.

-sighs and pops my Naproxen prescription-

When your cousin from way, way, way, way, way on the other side of the country calls you after so, so many years of ya'll losing contact.

And she happened to call you on her birthday 'cause she was thinking about you. Ya'll giggle together.

And you ask her how old she is now, thinking that she's 18 while you're 25...but instead, she's actually 29 on this day and you forgot that you've been the baby cousin all along. Ya'll giggle together.

And ya'll talk about your rude, demanding, impossible cats that you can't live with, but can't live without. Ya'll giggle together.

And the conversation is only a few minutes and you're quietly overwhelmed because holy fucking shit, you missed her voice and you hope to see her face-to-face someday and, no, you really missed her voice. Ya'll giggle together.

And during the whole conversation, you're still so overwhelmed that you forget that it might be a good idea to exchange numbers until she brings it up first. You write down her number on a pad of paper like it's the lifesaver that it is, and then you give her your number in exchange.

And all the while ya'll are giggling together, you realize that you two giggle the. Exact. Same. Way.

It's been years upon years upon years, but shit ain't changed.

That feeling.

Yeah.

Umm...

Ya'll know that feeling when for a long, long time, you had so much shit to do? Shit that had deadlines and a whole host of other things outta your control? And it felt like time wasn't yours because you were just so busy, busy, busy, busy all the time?

And as a result, you always more or less had your day's activities planned down to the hour, including how many hours of sleep you'd get?

But then...that time is over for the moment. Now time is all yours and you thought you'd jump on the ball doing whatever you need and want to do on your own time. But...

Instead, you're kinda [happily] flailing because you kinda forgot what it's like for your day to be yours? So you're doing little things here and there, just, like...enjoying time slowing down for the moment. And you're also kinda sorta numb because you almost thought this would never come to pass.

Just...flailing around, like a happy bird.

Ya'll know that feeling?

OH THANK GOD ALMIGHT, I AM FREE AT LAST!!!!

I still can't believe my anatomy & physiology lab practical was my last freakin' one. Lord have mercy!!!

(...I just hope that I made straight A's, tho. I'm hand-wringing in general. Now just to wait for the acceptance or rejection letter...)


Welp! Time for writing and Sims! :D :D :D

A'ight, Y'all...

Start a countdown. My final exam schedule changed around a bit, and so it looks like Imma have a full week next week, with Friday off as usual.

So start a countdown for next Thursday evening when Amarie will finally be free.

Lord have mercy, I can't wait to feel the keyboard flying under my fingers as I write, write, write, write.

P.S Your kidneys love you very, very much, by the way. They're lil beans that filter over 47 gallons of fluid (from your blood) per day as your blood circulates. Lil beans be workin' hard.

You can do it. You got this. You have been doing it and you have been getting this.

You don’t have much longer-just this week with your last two tests, and then next week is only 2 days with your four finals. Boom, boom, done.

You’re gonna get that acceptance letter. You’re gonna make it.

C’mon. Just grab a hand, hold on tight, take a deep breath, and keep going.

You’re almost done. You’re doing great.
