So, my computer fan has been making strangled noises the pas few days and my CPU's been running hot, but since I've only got the one laptop and no secondary computer I've been resisting taking it in. Like it says in the icon, internet addict, yo. I need my fix! but earlier this morning the CPU was getting up into the 80s in both cores...and I mean 80 degrees Celcius. I was getting really worried so I turned it off and I'm typing this up now with my iPod touch. I'm not a big fan of onscreen keyboards, but the browser on my phone is so painful that it's almost unusable. Either don't give me internet capability at all, or do it right. Doing it halfassedly just makes me want to rage at things.

In other news, I finally got off my ass and started posting again in BTR, and it is amazing. I think a lot of the depression I was going through was because my own neuroses were keeping me from posting. My characters were there, waiting to be let out, and I was stifling them. I honestly think that starting to RP again did more for my mood than the change in drugs did. I can't tell you for certain, because the two changes were concurrent, but that's just how I feel. Unfortunately, I'm also about to get kicked out of school again, and the headvoices (especially Mio) are being so loud and insistent that it's a constant struggle to try to keep from monofocusing on the RP and actually get work done. *sigh* I'll be checking my inbox every 5 seconds and my brain will be like..."tag? tag plz? want tag! tagtsgtagtagtag" and it's obnoxious because it will be 3 am and I KNOW no one is awake and tagging at that hour.

I've got a little less than six hours to make like I've actually been productive this weekend, so I don't ge kicked out. I did get a chunk of work done, but I'm not sure it will be enough. Gonna bust out the easy problems on the other set as well to beef up how much it looks like I got done. The blessing and the curse of the sets in this class is that they're mostly bitchwork with conceptual questions straight out of the book, so it either goes really quickly if you can find the right answers and really slowly if you can't. And you're not allowed to use the Internet to look up the answers either. It's kind of annoying because good google fu cuts down the search time for conceptual explanations by a lot, but there's also a lot of chemdraw-type apps that will basically do the other parts of the set for you without you having to put in any effort of thought as to how it works. And you can still totally ask other people and TAs if you don't understand as well, but that's something I've always struggled with because of my social anxiety/phobia.

Anyhow, gonna finish breakfast and get my ass to work.
