Today I found out that I'll probably be needing spinal surgery (along with getting a bone trimmed for better spinal fluid flow) around C1-C2--basically at the base of my skull. Had to leave early, and then we ended up at the wrong office... lots of driving. Now I'm exhausted, so I might not write much.

Personal Prompt: Set a timer for 5 minutes. How are you feeling right now? Jot down your thoughts, and try to limit yourself to just 5 minutes.

I'm tired. More exhausted than I've been in a while. Had to wake up at 7:30AM today to see the new test/scan results with my neurosurgeon. Blah. I can't even remember most of the day. So much happened... all squeezed into so little time... or so it seems. I'm kind of excited about it honestly. I don't know if it's because this surgery could provide my major relief or because it's the first thrilling/exciting thing that will be happening for a while. 

Now my parents are getting emotional in the other room. I'm partially tempted to remove my headset and listen to their conversation, but I was doing better before I heard them talking. I need to stop putting myself in the middle of their marriage and then blaming them for putting me in the middle of it... or... I don't know. I haven't thought about how much I try to figure out what's going on between them until now. I should probably work on doing that less. It'll only exhaust me more.

I'm surprised by how much I've written so far. Definitely didn't expect this. I guess I had more to say than I thought I did, and it's probably a good idea to know what's going on in my own head.

Creative Prompt: Set a timer for 5 minutes. Write a very short story about your favorite book, movie or TV character.

I can't think of a character I know from TV/a book/a movie to write about, so I'll write about a character from a game. (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] woofelss )

Okami had finished saving the world not too long ago (maybe two or three centuries), and she was hoping to find herself a new hobby. Lazing around for that many years ended up feeling pointless even though it sounded amazing in theory. But what would she do? Compared to saving the world, nothing felt worth her time. 

She had fought monsters, "allies," giant fish, other dogs when competing for who could dig up the most radishes... but she felt like she needed something new. Sadly, finding something new and worth her time isn't easy for someone who's lived for centuries and done basically everything.

Then something finally came to mind... Cooking! Through her travels, she's tried lots of delicious--even heavenly--foods, but she's been unable to get them without begging for them. If she could make her own food, then she could eat whatever... whenever! So that's what she did. (Obviously, I ran out of time and spent too much time on the introduction of the story...)
