I woke up this morning and my hair is like, darker than space. It's so black. My hair was blonde. I'm a natural blonde. Do you know how rare a natural blonde is? It's...really rare.

I know who was behind this. I know who did this. And he is REALLY DARN LUCKY I can't say anything about what happened! REALLY. DARN. LUCKY.

I can't redye my hair until like a week, so my hair doesn't get damaged. And it'll never be the same!

I just hope the person PILOT jerk who did this watches his back!

Today wasn't exactly a pleasant day. I had to get yet another breathing treatment. This is the 23rd century, you'd think we would have invented a cure for asthma by now, wouldn't you think? Maybe that's what I'll do with my medical degree. Who knows? As if, yeah.

I got two emails that kind of ruined my week. I finally got an email from my mother...she said I really upset her, and made her feel like what she did for me my entire life didn't matter because I left home so early. And now I'm trying to make Carol do the same thing. Like just because I went to school, I left her behind and didn't love her anymore. I don't know if there's some weird insanity bug going around, but...that's pretty crazy. And I don't know what to tell her. So I told her that I loved her, I always would, and that she can think what she wants.

The second email was from Richard Korby, doing exactly what he does best. He updated me on his science position on Starbase 81, and how he's being assigned to analyze new planets. Good for him, I say. Then he proceeds to tell me how little I've accomplished in my career, and...I won't go into details. It's just par for the course, with him. But while he was ranting about my various shortcomings, he noted how inattentive I am to other people's feelings. I hope this isn't true. I try to take things he says with a grain of salt, because he's an even bigger ass than Sulu is. I hope I'm not too selfish...I know I am a little selfish, but goodness, I think he might be right on this one.

I'm so sorry if I've ever been inconsiderate to any of you. I don't mean to. I really do like all of you, and I don't wanna be this way. I think I may try to change my ways...maybe this is a new era for me. A less selfish era.

I think I'm going to enjoy some of Dr. McCoy's bourbon I'm borrowing from him without his permission. Again, I'm sorry for any trouble I've caused anyone for being so selfish and inconsiderate...I guess I never really realized until now.

Guess. What.

I got accepted!

I got accepted!

I'm so thrilled! I start courses in a couple of weeks, and I've already had all my books sent to me. It's so funny how this all seems so familiar, just on a much more in depth level! I'm so excited to start up my classes and start towards getting my medical degree once and for all :3 I knew I could do this.

Finally, some good news. Finally. Nothing can bring me down. Not my mom and sister ignoring me, not everyone calling me names, or Mr. Sulu saying something rude...not even thinking about him is getting me down right now.

I'm gonna go study, now. Get started ahead of time. If I'm going to be a doctor, it sounds like a good idea to stay ahead of things. I'm just so thrilled...beyond thrilled.

Apparently some of the doctors have decided to call me Nurse Harpy. This would have been fine and dandy if I didn't have to go in for another breathing treatment this afternoon. I received an email from the people initiating the trial with bad news. Apparently this wasn't the first time it happened...and it probably won't get better in the near future. The medicine I took aggravated my asthma to the point where I'm going to have to up the treatment more than I had previously. At least they apologized.

At least I have some good friends on this ship outside of the medbay. And...including Dr. McCoy. I mean, he hasn't called me Nurse Harpy...yet. So thanks to all of my friends who have actually been nice to me, and supportive, and...put up with my hair looking like a rat's nest most days. You guys are the best.

Also, is anyone else participating in the fencing club? I just sent out an order for a fencing jacket, mask, and practice foil. Should prove to be interesting, I think. I just hope I can do it...I don't know exactly how physically demanding it is, but I would imagine I'd be okay.

One more thing...I applied for school [: I'll know in a week or two if they accept me, and then I have to start the process of going through Starfleet for financial aid. Which sounds like a pain, but it's supposed to be fairly simple, especially if you're active duty. But, we'll see...wish me luck!

I just woke up from a five-hour nap. It's...23:40 at the moment. The computer woke me up to tell me that I had momentarily stopped breathing, which I suppose had something to do with Zippers gnawing on my throat and making my windpipe close a little bit. That, plus I think I used to have sleep apnea. Which I guess is coming back? I don't even know if it can come back. I woke up and I suppose the computer has looped Cinderella, which I put in before I took a nap.

So I'm a little dizzy, but otherwise okay. I wonder if it'll happen again. I hope not. I may need to make or buy some kind of makeshift cage for Zippers. He's doing everything he can to just get out of here and get to Cheddar. I don't think he loves me anymore. There's a lot of that going around.

I have to report in like twenty minutes, for paperwork. It's not my shift, but I promised, I guess...a lot of charts need my signature on them. I better not come into work and find notes that say Harpy, though. If anyone is doing it that reads this...please stop. I get it. You saw me and Spock fight. It's not really that funny.

I'm not going to talk about the...incredibly public fight. It happened. It's being dealt with.

Well, I need to go back to work, I guess. Maybe there will be spare inhalers so I'll be able to stop ordering them from Starfleet. They're gonna start thinking I can't do my job soon. Which...y'know, I totally can. I'm a nurse before I'm anything else.

EDIT -- Thank you, Mr. Chekov, for helping me out with my dress. I appreciate it.
