- it's working ok with the veganism. I've had Indian food and Thai food and more Indian food, and stuff made with soy milk. And sushi. But besides the sushi it's working. Yes one can make mashed potatoes with soy milk and margarine, but it tastes rather bland, and half of what I'm finding to eat is composed of potatoes and oil.
-I've just spent the whole vacation watching Big Bang Theory and reading A Dance with Dragons. There isn't much to complain about with that book, except that I liked it better when people died and then stayed dead, by now I don't care who dies because they'll probably turn up again. I liked it better when there was less magic. The stakes were higher and things were more certain when there weren't a hundred different religions whose magic works. I wouldn't mind it in a work with mythological tone, because there its not really about what's happening in the first place, but here it rather de-grounds everything.
- I'm not sure I haven't written this before, but Lawrence of Arabia is a fascinating person. It's a great movie.
- obviously the part about me writing here some more during vacation didn't happen.
- I realised I have about a hundred days of high school left, ever, so I'm going to stop complaining about math class and try to learn some of those horrible german words for things instead. I'll just memorise how the example solutions in the textbooks are written before the exam, math is easy like that.
- I saw a paediatric endocrinologist, he called me a girl, I proceeded to not talk to him, which was childish, so he assumed I understand nothing and spent a few hours trying to explain it to me without using any words I might not understand. Which was sort of funny really. Also they have stopped lecturing me on neuroplasticity and the irreversible damage I am doing to my psyche and have instead taken up lecturing me on how effectless it all is. They change positions on a lot of things and give me a lot of false information. They're probably too stupid to realise how hypocritical they are instead of actually lying, though.
-no update on where I might be going to college yet, of course.
- I want to read a nice simple fantasy book where the good guys and the bad guys throw weapons and magic at each other, no genre deconstructing or parody or social criticism or moral discussion involved. My brother leant me this thing with Egyptian gods in it, I'll see how that is.
-and I forget to go to fencing this week too. Tomorrow though.

October
