Up to date

I am turning 20 in 5 days and yet this happens....

1 month ago I quit my job due to back pain and problems bending. I thought it was an irritated sciatic nerve. Just two weeks ago my mom suggested to have an MRI....oh boy do I hate MRI's...well I found out I have a herniated disc between L5 and S1 (for all you medical buffs out there) with an extrusion through a wall that protects my nerves. Remember kids...picking up frozen bake goods can be quite deadly.
I'm quite fine. I'm going to see a neurologist to check again if I need surgery.
The good news I get to spend more time with Xiao Bao. Enoch, I really need to find a pimp outfit lol. Although this site has...a fez lol!!!!

Currently I'm obssessed with You Tube. They have rare cartoons and bizarre things to share on the web. Joecool85 posted Grimm's Fairy Tales that use to be part of the Special delivery block on Nickelodeon. I watched this when I was in kindergarten yet it still beats the crap out of any kids show shown today.

Sorry, I knew this post was going to be long, but I really need to say this as well.
I have an odd attachment to the country of Lebanon. I did a project about this country in middle school and ever since then I wanted to try tabouli, a famous dish of Lebanon. This country was going through reconstruction and seemed to be building itself back together. It is just heart breaking to see what is happening to this country right now. Whether both sides are guilty, the innocent always suffer. Mazen Kerbaj's blog is a real outlook of the current situation through drawings. Sadly, all we can do is read and wait.

Bodies are strewn about in the streets, the medics can’t get to them fast enough. There are too many of them. How horrific.

I never expected to see a repeat of this, never in my lifetime, not in some of the exact same regions as the previous conflicts. It’s messed up, Melon. You’re right, all we can do is pray and hope, rinse, wash, repeat, pray some more. . .if anything, watching these bloody events unfold has reminded me how valuable peace is, and the steps we may need to take as a collective—to retain it.

I gotta find a magic wand, Melon, so that I could turn that blue thingy in the diagram into. . .um, you know, like that thing Princess Guinevere was wearing around her wrist, in that cartoon Princess Guinevere and the Jewel Riders. Man, that animated series was ten different kinds of sappy. . .

Let me know how your next doctor’s visit goes, Melon. And as usual, I’ll be crossing my fingers, praying, making smoke signals, chanting on your behalf. . .
