long catch-up on various things

Update on Lasik: I'm still enjoying not having to wear contacts/glasses, but my right eye seems to have gotten "fuzzy" again. Fuzzy is perhaps too strong a word; if I cover my left eye, I can see fine out of my right, it's just not as SHARP as my left. The result is that when I have both eyes uncovered, it "feels" like I have something in my right eye making things not as sharp, which makes me want to rub it, which is a big no no. Sigh. I'm not sure what's accounting for it, because previously I was told that it was due to post-op inflammation, but that should no longer be a factor. I guess I'll just have to see what comes out of my 1-month post-op checkup.

I have been making a lot of food recently. Details + recipe for Hong Kong style milk tea )

I've also finished a handful of K-dramas since the last time I think I wrote about them... Okay, maybe it's more than a handful... )

Football season has started again! I'm participating in 3 fantasy football leagues this year. Two are on ESPN and one is on, which totally sucks. Yahoo is my favorite, but it's not as popular as ESPN, and the one league that uses it, I bowed out of this season.

from Hannover to New York

Well, now I'm in New York! Arrived on Friday, so I've somehow already been here a few days. O.o Time flies. I don't know if it's the time zone changes or what, but I have been having a really terrible time with my math while here. More on that in a bit. My body clock is also all screwed up. Going from Seattle to Hannover then to New York, I have no idea what time it's supposed to be! Every time I look at a clock I'm mystified that that's the time.

More details on my trips... )

I can't remember if I mentioned this in my other post, but on my flight over, I watched a Japanese anime film called "your name" and it was WONDERFUL. I made Jade watch it too, and she also thought it was a beautiful movie. Totally rec it. It had everything you want a good movie to have.

I'm so bummed to be missing two Korean classes, especially during some very difficult lessons. We're on compound vowels now, and I find it so confusing. :/
