Well guys, this is it. I'm on the bus on the way to my appointment! In about half an hour, it will be officially time.

Sorry to all those I didn't reply to, whether RPs or PMs. ;__; Admittedly some RPs have my interest more than others, and for PMs... My Pen is such a mess, and I've been feeling like it's keeping me from effectively RPing. Because I can't just... link to it. Nothing is in there.

Hopefully after the surgery I'll be able to work on it during the holidays. I have an idea what to do with it. I just gotta set it up and apply it.

Plus handling the Wish-A-Thon and litters and everything in-between, sometimes I can't RP as much as I can manage.

I'll let you guys know how it went as soon as possible!

You are likely already there, but I'm wishing you the best. Don't go worrying about everything here hun, I think everyone understands that your busy and things are chaotic. Just concentrate on recovering and following the doctors instructions.


Bottles smashed, I raised my hand
How can you all even stand?
And why is there joy in this poison? Oh
Faking smiles and confidence
Driving miles to capture this excitement
I can't take anymore

You're never gonna get it
I'm a hazard to myself
I'll break it to you easy
This is hell, this is hell
You're looking and whispering
You think I'm someone else
This is hell, yes
I am in hell

I realize this isn't Twitter, lmao, but oh well. :'0

1/3 steps done. Next step is meeting the preop person, then explaining the surgery to me, asking questions, etc... And then step 3/3 is the surgery itself.

Might not get to post after this. Later!

Well... xD;; I have sad news. Surgery did not happen.

It's a long story and I'm on my phone on the way home, but long story short, when I got in the office, the girl told me they couldn't do the surgery today because the doctor there was not trained in personalized LASIK surgery, which is what I need. She said I never should've been scheduled today because of the type of surgery I need done.

I... started to cry. xD;;; I was so disappointed. And SHE felt so bad and guilty and she kept apologizing and she was just so nice it's unreal.

Anyway, we rescheduled for December 26, which is this coming Friday. She said she booked me with one of the OWNERS of the LASIK clinic, and that usually he only takes VIP clients. But that she'd squeezed me in there anyway because of this mistake. She also gave me a $200 discount because of everything.

So... I'm here, lmao. Will give a full story later, if you guys care to hear it all, hahah.

I am SO TEMPTED to go Monday... but I work. ;__; And my bosses won't be there so idk who I would ask. And I have social plans for both days... So yeah. 26 is the best way to go. ;w;

So expect to see me around some more, lol.

Ahh, Shrewdie, I'm sorry it didn't happen. ;o; It always stinks when they make screw-ups like that, but man, sounds like that nice lady hooked you up with a pretty good deal!  We'll take good care of entertaining you in the meantime!! <3

At least you get to wear deodorant today? x'D

Awww man, that's major suck. 8'U But hey! You went with confidence and bravery once, you can do it again! (And this time get a better night's sleep, darnit woman. >:o /shot jk ily lololo) But yeee discounts are very nice, hoho. ovo

I wrote it down
In the winter of 1610,
Just a secret under
Lock and key until then.
While collecting the stars,
I connected the dots.
I don’t know who I am,
But now I know who I’m not.
I’m just a curious speck
That got caught up in orbit.
Like a magnet it beckoned
My metals toward it.

Make my messes matter,
Make this chaos count,
Let every little fracture in me
Shatter out loud.

Awe Shrewd, that is such a disappointment! D:

It's good you get the discount though! At least someone who knows what they are doing will be taking care of you Friday. :)

Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we are brave and we can fly.

Wooooow. That... is kind of a huge parcel of suck right there. At least the clinic owned up to their mistake, but still, that kind of thing ticks me off. At least you got it done cheaper, but waiting stinks!

I hope all our good vibes don't dissipate before you can get it done! :P

These lofty thoughts are killing me
Preoccupied by what I could be
I get so high on my ideas
Don't call me down
But you can meet me where I land.

In pursuit
Of lucid dreams
Now I
Drive for days
To make my way back to those old familiar places

Shrewdie, nooooooooo. I'm so sorry. This whole fiasco must have really put a damper on things. But hey-- Just remember that you're still getting it done eventually either way! (Think of it as a belated Christmas gift in that case, then?) Still, it really stinks that you have to wait longer. XC

At least you got a discount! And a good doctor this time to boot!


A beautiful moon shines above again tonight,
And it sheds light happily over the world.
As for me, I'm just worthless, good for nothing,
Dreaming at daybreak, creeping at dawn.

Still I'll scream into the sky, hoping that somebody will find me.
I want to run, but there's no way out--
No bright future in sight.
But I still fly up like a butterfly, hoping that you'll find me.
A crescent moon, ugly children of the stars, flying with broken wings...!

Man, that's a huge bummer, even if surgery is kinda scary. It's good that they did manage to reschedule you though, and that the date isn't being pushed back too far. They'd be real assholes if they didn't do that.

Hopefully your surgery journey won't have any more hiccups. D:




I'm only honest when it rains.
If I time it right, the thunder breaks
When I open my mouth.
I want to love you but I don't know how.

Awww, sorry you have to wait to get surgery, but it's so nice they comped  you with a discount for it XD Well, at least you will still get it within the month so you don't have to wait too much longer I suppose. When you DO get it done, it will be cheaper, and it will be after the holidays so you can go into a new year with superb vision <3

I wait to surface
Above these bellowed growls
To sweep the shallows of utopia
I am the anchor
And the rope around your feet
In a river deep I hold you down
Ive come to stage your abdication
Im the creation of your sins
Embrace me

Hey again guys~

Well, I guess, first, Merry Christmas. xD Lol. To me the 25th isn't much of anything at all, whoops. For the longest time I thought December 24th was Christmas, because my family has always opened gifts on that day.

Either way, I'm here again to give some information, since my official surgery is tomorrow.

The story from last week is pretty much all it was. xD Technician told me I couldn't have the surgery, I started crying, she felt major legit bad, we talked for like 45-60 minutes about random things, surgery and non. She made me feel 110% better by the time we were done, we hugged before I left, and she was one of the most beautiful people I've met in my life.

Anyway, like I said, I'm getting my surgery done tomorrow by one of the best they have, who also happens to be one of the owners. I also got a cute little $200 discount on the price, which now totals at $3,700. Paid out of my pocket of course. Lol.

Anyway, that said. It is tomorrow at the same time as Saturday, meaning at 10:45AM. I'm dragging my mom with me this time, because I pretty much know everything that happens before the surgery, so it won't take much time at all. My values can't have changed within 6 days, and then I asked the questions that worried me the most on Saturday before I left. I have my prescription drops, and regular eyedrops, so I'm ready to go.

I also got a sheet of information for the day of the surgery. Doctor's orders for the first 24 hours are to avoid screens, whether TV, computer, or phone, as the eyes will already be dry, tired, burning and just all around uncomfortable, and those things just tire your eyes all the more. They say many people go back home right away and then sleep off the bulk of it, putting eyedrops to keep the eyes hydrated, etc. We'll see how it goes, I'm honestly pretty resilient when it comes to dry eyes. xD And screens. My life is in front of them... whoops.

Anyway, of course, I'll do my best to come on long enough to at least if everything's gone okay. I don't want you guys to think I went blind or that I lost vision or whatever. So even if just to type 'Surgery went ok' I will be coming on. Knowing me I won't be able to stay away. |8 Whoops.

But hey it's okay. I'll just. Put the laptop faaaaaaaaaaaaar away and then stretch my arms to type. c,: Technically I should be completely functional by the time the surgery is over! Meaning I should have that sweet 20/20 vision as soon as it's over, technically speaking.

If all goes well, I should be back Saturday or Sunday. But again, I'll see how my eyes can handle the screens. Worst case scenario I'll wear my prescribed sunglasses for the screens to block the light a bit.

Again, sorry to those I owe PMs to, and RP replies, and like, everything else. ; ___ ; Know that I read all my PMs and if I don't reply it's either because I'm lazy (lol) or because I am legit busy. Yesterday was both, as a I worked on gifts all day, then sent them out, typed long PMs, and then I had to wrap RL gifts and THEN unwrap those RL gifts with family... Lotsa things. Also my Pen hasn't been drafted yet either whoops.

But yeah I've read all my PMs, know that if I haven't answered you, I might not be able to do it today either because... Christmas day. I'm going to my aunt's place tonight, and they don't have Wi-Fi. Might bring the laptop just to work out Pen but even then. I honestly have no idea. I'll have my phone but yeah.

Anyway, there you go. Might not be on at all Friday, that's yet to be seen. I'm addicted though I'll probably pop up just to see if my RPs got replies, etc. hahah.

But there you go. Real deal is tomorrow, I will keep you all updated via my Evelon-is-not-actually-Twitter posts whenever possible while I'm there. Everything will go just peachy, confident it will.
