// I promised ya'll a better post today and as it's 10:30 I figure I should get on that, lol.

// My party was a lot of fun. Sabrina and Jamil got stuck in Georgia and couldn't make it, and Alec had to work. Laurel came down from Ashland though, which is a two hour drive so that was great. We went for Chinese food. Which was very yummy. And then had frozen yogurt, which was also very yummy.

// I said no gifts but Sarah gave me something anyway.

Sarah is an artist and she made this print. It's a Dirigible Whale. I love it. I'm gonna get it framed.

// I leave Friday to go on vacation. I'll be gone more than two weeks. During that time I'll mostly be using my phone to read stuff and make updates. Occasionally I might go somewhere with wifi though. I'm excited. We're going to the Adirondacks first then to Cape Cod. Should be fun.

// I'm going to try really hard to have a new mix up before I go. NO PROMISES!

I WANT NEW MUSIC FOR THE TRIP! SUGGEST MUSIC TO ME! I LIKE EVERYTHING!

I put up a new layout. I decided that I need something lighter and brighter for spring. What do you all think?

Thanks all for making me feel better. I'm glad I got that off my chest and now I'm feeling a lot more optimistic. This may or may not have something to do with the shopping spree me and my mom went on yesterday.

I'm hoping with that with break I'll have a chance to work on my writing more. It's a lot harder to work on fic when I know I have an anthropology paper I should be working on instead, haha.

I am almost done with a Moriarty mix, if you're in to the Sherlock fandom at all.

Shit I'm on a music spree right now. Been DL-ing some mixes, listening to a lot of stuff, coming up with all sorts of mix ideas. How can people not be as obsessed with music as me? I find this perplexing. I'm currently looping Greg Laswell and Michael Buble. They're soothing~

Been working on cleaning my room. It relaxes me so much, *sigh*. What doesn't relax me is the fact that my closet is full to bursting and I still have two laundry baskets worth of stuff to hang. flails and dies

|| I thought my dad gave me his cold, no, no he didn't. I have a sinus infection. It actually first got bad Wednesday at Sarah's Party (incidentally I bought her a bottle of my favorite wine, turns out it's her favourite too, haha). I couldn't drink at Cheapside because of all the decongestants I was taking and spent half the night blowing my nose (yes at the table, I actually stole Erin and Sabrina's napkins at some point). I ended up leaving early. I went to the doctor the next day, got prescribe some huge ass amoxicillin pills and also some mucinex-d (which are also huge). I've gone through several bowls of soup and one and a half boxes of tissues.

|| When I'm sick I don't like to do anything except sleep and watch a lot of Law & Order (all versions except LA) and NCIS (original only please). USA and TNT help this by having convient marathons pretty much daily of one of them or another.

|| I've also been playing a bit of Perfect World Int. It's pretty amazing for a free MMORPG.

|| I was suppose to go to the Ashland today to shadow two tours. I forgot because I was somewhat high on decongestants (That sudafed shit will mess you up). I'll have to call tomorrow.

|| Almost done with my Sherlock mix. Wondering if ten songs is enough. I usually go for at least 12, but Sherlock is being a bitch to find songs for. The mix is also half instrumental, seeing as I'm so obsessed with instrumental music at the moment.

|| I need a shower. It's been almost three days. (TMI?)

|| I'm getting out of the house tomorrow. I don't care if it's just to go to the grocery. I need to get out!!!!!

// It was really nice and warm for like two weeks here but then about a week ago it got cold again, dammit! It actually snowed on Saturday. I want sun, and warmth, and to wear my dresses and skirts again, cause I own a lot.

// I've been so busy with school and everything. Tests, and presentations, and papers. Ugh.

// Speaking of school I decided to add a minor of Art History. It means that it will take me another semester to graduate but I think it will be worth it. I should be graduating in Spring of '13. Only two years after I was supposed to graduate. is shot

// I feel like there were a couple of things I was supposed to be doing for people on my flist but I can't remember... If I said I was going to do something for you and haven't comment here so I'll do it.

// New mix up at [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. It's another sleep mix, mostly instrumental stuff.

// Been trying to work on a fic for Sherlock BBC. It's semi-crack and involves Sherlock turning in to a girl inexplicably. Clearly it will be humor.

// Attended Sabrina's Bridal Shower this weekend. It was a tea, so we drank tea, ate delicious scones, and were fuck-tons of classy, lol. Becca hosted it. Becca not only has two beautiful cats and a corgi, but also a hedgehog named, what else?, Sonic.

// Speaking of the wedding I still need to find a dress, argh!

// So Erin definately has an Eating disorder, but she refuses, despite what two dieticians (and me) have recommended she do, which is see a therapist. Erin believes that certain mental illnesses are just things that people should get over on their own, like OCD and Depression and Bipolar and apparently Eating Disorders. She thinks medicine (and therapy) is a crutch. I fucking hate that argument. If you have a broken leg, you use a crutch, if you have diabetes you use insulin, so what the hell is wrong with using Zoloft or Therapy if it's your mind that is ill?

She says people get dependent on it to be happy and that people should just be able to "look inside themselves" to find their happiness. What hippie bullshit. The pills don't make me happy. It's not fucking marijuana. I'm not high on Zoloft. They just make it so the rest of the world isn't crushing down on my. They allow me to see the paths toward happiness.

Maybe it's a good thing she's going to Hawaii, because honestly I'm a little tired of her. Which sounds terrible but we just don't have that much in common anymore. Plus I spend all my time worrying for her, which isn't healthy for me. I told her that I don't want to hear about her problems with Eating anymore because if she's not going to get help then that's just self-destructive behaviour and until she realizes that there is nothing I say that's going to help so I don't want to hear her bitch anymore.

When did friendship get so hard? Can we go back to being 7 and the most complicated thing about being friends was whether or not to share your cookie at lunch?

So that midterm I didn't get to finish and was pissed about? I got 100% with the 2 pt curve. She gave the curve so at least one person would get a 100. Does that mean I set the curve? o.O

I'm so fucking obsessed with Sherlock (BBC). I love it so much. Holy shit, everyone needs to watch this. Everyone. No exceptions.

Bought the Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes today (Vol. 1 and 2). I read the first novel of it a long time ago but now I'm going to read everything. It's amazing how many books and stories there are out there of Sherlock Holmes not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Finally got a mix finished and posted. It's a mix of creepy music and can be found at my comm [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks.

I swear I have been working on our fic, [livejournal.com profile] daigranon! I wrote a thousand words today, I did! I'm just so busy with midterms, *sob*

I need a new iPod. I filled mine up. Apparently it can only hold 200 albums. Not enough!!!!

Ever since my bestie Erin started going to a dietician and turned vegan she's been a health nut. I mentioned that I usually eat a Nutrigrain bar for breakfast and she's all "Those are packed with sugar!" and then me and Sarah were talking about how much we loved movie theater popcorn with lots of butter and Erin said "All those chemicals and preservatives are so bad for you!". Shit, I'm pretty sure at this point I'd go in to some kind of withdrawal if I don't have chemicals and preservatives. I'm happy for her and all for being healthy or whatever, but seriously, don't get in between me and my preservatives.

Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] le_prince_lutin who not only shares my love of Sherlock, but also music (including instrumental(esp. Cello)), good theater, travel, and Sherlock (it deserves to be said twice).

Sorry for unintentionally vanishing from LJ for two weeks. I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON!

But, I come baring excuses reasons!

Right after I got back from my trip to D.C. (which was AMAZING) I got sick. Really, really sick. Missed a week and a half of school and three rounds of antibiotics sick. It was awful, but I did lose 5 pounds xD

So I had a ton of make-up school work. That was also terrible.

Speaking of School I have two take home tests this weekend and a test tomorrow at at school. Ack!

Went a a Mr. T Party yesterday, which is basically a Tea Party where everyone dresses up like Mr. T and we watch a lot of the A-Team plus Mr. T's Be Somebody or Be Somebody's Fool, while drinking tea and eating scones with icing mohawks.

To make my costume I went to Micheal's Craft Store to buy a lot of chains and feathers. The conversation with the cashier went like this:

Cashier: What are you making?
Me: A Mr. T costume.
Cashier: Why?
Me: What else would you wear to a Tea Party?
Cashier: o.O

I'm so behind on everything! I need to read two weeks of manga chapters and watch two weeks worth of shows! (Plus do my homework)

Obsessing over the Drive-by Truckers. Great band!

Hopefully I'll be sticking around, no more mysteriously vanishing off the face of the earth.

It's been a pretty good few days, you know, when it's not sucking

♥ A couple months ago I posted about winning free tickets to a Maroon 5 concert and I took my BFF Erin. Well on Monday Erin won free tickets to a Michael Franti and Spearhead concert. The concert was a lot of fun, even if I did have to leave early because I had a test the next day. Plus the bartender gave me a free drink!

♥ I got a 94% on my Japanese Culture test. I would probably have gotten higher but I missed the three days right before the test

♥  I don't think I totally bomb my Chinese Culture test! Well, I probably wrangled a B at any rate.

♥ History of Japanese Painting is being offered next semester. Woot!

♥ My Jaw is feeling better.

♥ I got a 90% on my Anthropological Theory paper (okay I'm kinda pissed because it was an A+ paper, but whatever) and a 95% on my Chinese Culture paper.

♥ I've actually managed to work on some fics. I'm halfway done with the sequel to Bail. I'll also be ready to post my Chrome FST in the next couple of days.

♥ Anthropology School is offering a course on the Anthropology of Tourism. Sounds Fun!

♥ Me and my dad have begun planning our trip to D.C. in January. (Planning trips is so much fun for me)

I think that's everything.
