|The strangeness of being Amanda

The human body never ceases to amaze me. I was born in California and spent 19 years there with the hot, dry summers and the cool, wet winters (only two seasons, really).
And then I move here where there's actual SEASONS, and my body's acting like it's known what to do all along. I've had a voracious appetite, especially for fatty foods, and I haven't had insomnia in weeks cause all my body wants to do is sleep. And I guess I need to do this because in spite of it all, I've been losing weight from exposure to the cold.
Before I moved here I never had this experience! It totally amazes me that out of nowhere, without any conscious thoughts, the body adapts to things it's NEVER encountered before...it's just programmed for it. It's frickin' amazing!
On a particularly unrelated note, the other day I had the impulsively excited realization of "OMG wow, I can read my own thoughts!!".
Yeeees Amanda, you can...
Oh, and happy halloween!
