a couple of weeks ago i couldn't do anything because of a herniated disk in my lower back. i could barely walk or move and i couldn't sit at all. the only time it didn't hurt was when i was laying on my stomach and the second i got up it would go back to torturing me for not taking better care of myself or something. anyway, i went a few days really doing nothing and then spent a couple more slowly easing back into normal stuff. if i sat for too long or twisted the wrong way, it would hurt, but for the most part it was pretty much better. or at least not hurting anymore. i was happy.
today, i finish packing my bag. i didn't particularly feel like moving on to the next thing on my to-do list so i thought that i'd weigh my bag just to see if it was too heavy even though i knew it wasnt. so i go to pick up my suitcase and my back gives me a warning. i ignore it and take it to the scale. halfway back from the scale my back decides that it's had enough and i can barely stand.
now, i am back to stage one. i can't sit, i can barely walk, and i cant turn without shooting pains. guess who has a twelve hour airplane ride to sit through day after tomorrow?
so yeah, my stupidity astounds me.

on another note, while watching cartoons with my brothers the other day, i realized that the commercials have changed a lot from when i was the targeted audience of cartoon breaks. instead of a hundred commercials for awesome looking toys that immediately make you run to your parents begging for them only to be told no, there was just commercial after commercial of online games. this has been happening for a while, but it didnt really hit me as strange till then. mixed in with the online game commercials are yogurt and cereal ones. then you have a few nintendo ds ads and occasionally there will be one about robotic hamsters or something. and then we wonder why kids sit on the computer all day instead of actually doing something.

there's no use trying to be the bigger person because when i'm with you i don't get to be a person at all. i'm spare parts and spare dreams and spare effort, but you can't even spare me a thought, a second, a glance. i'm done.
i'll rebuild my shell. i'll fix my broken smile and find the laughter i lost ages ago. i'll put myself back together and you'll forget that i ever fell apart. but i will never forget. and i will never forgive. underneath every smile i grace you with, know that there is a hidden glare. know that my blood is boiling under my laughter and my lovetrusthope will never again be left in your care. whenever you succeed, know that under the false cheers falling through my lips i'm wishing you got what you deserved. my skin will crawl at the thought of you and my stomach will churn at the sound of your name, and you will never even look close enough to notice.
and though you will probably not be able to tell the difference, i just want you to know that, you and me, we're through.

"An Australian psychology expert who has been studying emotions has found being grumpy makes us think more clearly.
In contrast to those annoying happy types, miserable people are better at decision-making and less gullible, his experiments showed.
While cheerfulness fosters creativity, gloominess breeds attentiveness and careful thinking, Professor Joe Forgas told Australian Science Magazine."
