straightrhodes: (text | frickin' reality)
|| I should be doing my term paper on Hokusai, but instead I am procrastinating! Fuck yeah!

|| Halloween! I passed out candy BUT WE RAN OUT 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE END OF TRICK OR TREATING! I BOUGHT OVER 300 PIECES. And now there is no left over candy :C

|| Suggest Tumblr blogs for me to follow. I'm starting to get the hang of tumblr but would like more to explore. Ya'll know what's relevant to my interests, lol.

|| So I ended up spending 120 dollars on a new radio for my car, which suuucksss, but it does sound awesome, so yay?

|| SugoiCon this weekend. I'M REALLY NOT PREPARED.

|| Hawaii Five-0 tonight was pretty good but my dislike for Lori has only solidified. I think it's a combination of poor writing and poor acting, which basically just means there is nothing to redeem her at all.

|| There was something else. I know there was something else, but now I can't think of it, grrr.

|| Okay, I might have had a bit of that Halloween candy myself, and then some soda to wash it down. I FEEL SO HYPER!
straightrhodes: (wc | el doesn't buy yo shit)
|| So my knee still really fucking hurts. Not only that but it pops a lot when I walk and every now and then it just feels like it gets all week. I'm afraid to climb stairs because it especially acts funky then and I'm scared of falling. I've been putting off starting physical therapy because I thought it might heal by itself, but I'm pretty much convinced now that it won't. I guess I'll have to start looking in to some therapists. But OMG I don't wanna.

|| So other than my knee being a bitch I'm doing ok. I'm not sick anymore so that's good. Unfortunately when I was sick last week I missed my Italian midterm, so I gotta make that sucker up tomorrow, ugh.

|| I finally caught up to S2 of Hawaii Five-0. I don't totally hate the season but I do have some issues, mostly with this new character Lori. I don't hate her cause she's new or cause she flirts with Steve, like 80 percent of the fandom, it's just that she's such a weak character. Supposedly she's there to keep an eye on 5-0 and report back to the new governor, but she hasn't done any of that. Then there's the fact she's some kind of profiler, except she never actually has any insights in to the criminals or the victims. Honest to god Danny last season seemed better with people than she does. Then there is her personality, she doesn't have one. I'm not sure if the writers just aren't sure what they want to do with her yet or if the actress is truly that wooden, but it's not good.

I don't hate the idea of Lori's character, it's just that she brings nothing new to the show. I either want her to gain a personality and some purpose in the show or I want her to leave, I'd be happy with either! Plus they really cut down on Danny, Kono, and Chin's scenes in order to include her and I just don't like that.

Well, the haven't added her to the main credits so I'm hopeful she is not a permanent fixture. Maybe she'll become just a recurring character and not one of the mains? That would be good.

Whatever, the first few eps of the season sucked but it seems to slowly be getting better, so here's hoping.

|| Wow, above long rant was long xD

|| I'm starting a new low-carb diet, well not really a diet, more like a lifestyle change. My doctor recommended it to me because I suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Apparently people with PCOS are more prone to diabetes so my doctor said I should eat less sugar and carbs to cut down on my insulin levels. PCOS sufferers often have fluctuating insulin levels which apparently is bad.

Whatever, I just hope I manage to lose weight too. I wouldn't mind losing ten pounds, lol.

|| I'm about 400 words in to my Suits Christmas Exchange fic, but I have the whole thing plotted out already. I'm going to be honest, I don't think I've ever written anything this fluffy in my life. We are talking tiny babbeh kittens level of fluff here.

If my fic was a picture of kittens it would be this one:


Yeah, it's that fluffy.

|| I should probably be working on the papers I have due for my classes but I'm tired and lazy.

|| Car shopping this weekend, very exciting!!!! I am so fucking sick of sharing with my dad, ugh. HE'S NEVER ON TIME FOR ANYTHING!
straightrhodes: (anatomy | skeleton back)
Holy cheese logs! Has it really been so long since I last posted? *checks lj* Yes, yes it has.

Oops.

So my trip to New York was amazing and wonderful and also very hot and humid. But I'm used to that seeing as I LIVE IN THE SWEAT LODGE KNOWN AS KENTUCKY! sorry it's just really hot here today

I'll make a separate post about my trip once I get my photos ready. And this time I mean it! probably

In other news: Classes started today. I only have Italian on Monday/Wednesday, it looks much easier than Japanese. Tomorrow I have Italian (it's a m/t/w/r class), Art of Edo Era Japan, Art of the Enlightenment, and Art Objects of Asia. Too many classes in one day! I'm not sure why but all the art history classes are on t/r for some reason.

I think I'm going to like this semester. Dr. Allaire is the Italian teacher and she was really nice when I talked to her about potentially having panic attacks in class and needing to leave. Dr. Maske teaches two of my other classes and he's really nice and likes me. I don't know the last person but it's hard to imagine she won't be understanding.

Music: Obsessing over Christina Perri atm. Also working on a Sherlock/John mix

Writing: So before the accident I had some stuff. That stuff vanished along with the hard drive I had it on, probably lying in pieces on the Ohio interstate. Now I can't write anything that is not COMPLETE AND UTTER SHIT! It's like all my inspiration and motivation has flown out the window! I guess that's not surprising with everything that's happened though.

Mom Stuff: Still missing mom of course. I could almost swear I feel sadder now than I did before, but I'm sure that's not true. This Saturday is my parents anniversary, the first since she died. I don't think my dad will handle it well. We'll probably take flowers to the grave. I'll cry. Dad'll cry. My brother'll cry. God, when do things start getting better?
straightrhodes: (SenBasa tigers)
|| So I have a new computer now. It's so shiny and new! OMG I'm so in love with it. Everything is so freakin' fast now. LJ loads like mega-quick! And when I play the Sims now I can put it on the highest graphic level. It looks so pretty! My old laptop was 3 years old and the processor sucked. Plus I now have Microsoft Word! I have spellcheck again! I'm so happy!

|| For a paper I have to write for my Tourism class I had to go to a tourism spot. I chose Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate.It's this really old, beautiful house that belonged to the statesman Henry Clay (who ran for President 3 times in the early 1800s and lost all three times, poor him, haha). It was awesome! And I asked about volunteering there and they were really excited about it, haha. I think they're hurting for volunteers. I still have to apply and go through the whole process, but it's pretty much a done deal since I'm over the age of 18 and have no criminal background. I would be giving tours and working in the office and maybe even assisting on curatorial projects. It sounds so fun.

|| Speaking of the paper I should probably be working on that as it's due Thursday, but I have writer's block. I'm having problems deciding on a thesis. I have the title though, Gender and Race at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate.

|| Since I'm not working on my paper I'm working on a fic instead, haha. It's a Sherlock fic. I hope to have it done sometime this weekend, but I think we all know how likely I get things done by the time I say I will.

|| Finally got that Chapter done for the story me and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon are working on. That only took me like 2 months, oops. Sorry Dai!

|| My hair looks awesome today. I'm not sure what I did but it looks fantastic. Just saying xD

|| So after much deliberation and discussion with my parents I decided to switch from being an Anthropology major and Art History minor to being a Art History major and an Anthropology minor. It will be easier for me to get in to Museum Studies programs for Grad School this way, plus idk, I have a lot of problems with our Anthropology department. I guess I'm not liberal (i.e. I don't hate 'the white man') enough for most of the proffessors. I got torn to shreds one day in History of Anthroplogical Theory because I stated an opinion that the proffessor didn't agree with. She and her league of kiss-ups ripped me to pieces. I nearly had a panic attack. After that I wouldn't participate in class, which hurt my final grade. Whereas all my art history teachers have absolutely loved me and my writing so, yeah.

|| Keeneland is opening on Friday! I bought a new dress to wear!

|| Speaking of buying new dresses I found the perfect dress for Sabrina's wedding! AND it was on sale for 100 dollars off! Yes! I thought I'd be spending 150 dollars on a dress and instead I spent 50. I did have to buy a belt to go with it though as the dress is a little too big and the belt was expensive. But they look so pretty together I don't care. Now I just need shoes, a purse, maybe some jewelry. Jeez.
straightrhodes: (Lambo sleepy)
It's Monday! Yay! (No!)

+ I probably did not fail my test in my Methods of Soft Power and the Japanese Tea Ceremony class. Yeah. That's a class.

+ I should be working on my Chinese culture take home exam, but I is laaaa~zy. And it's not due until two tomorrow. I swear if it weren't for the prospect of imminent failure looming in front of me I'd never get anything done.

+ Scheduled two doctor's appointments for the next week. One is with my endocrinologist, so that's nothing new, but one is with a dermatologist. I'm so freaking pissed of. I used to have horrible acne, but then it cleared up in High School and I had fabulous skin, now the acne is back and it's awful. Apparently my PCOS can cause acne, but I'm not waiting for the endocrinologist to suggest me more pills that DON'T FUCKING WORK! I'm a tad upset that I've been seeing this guy for 6 mos with NOTHING to show for it.

+ I've been writing! Shocking! Don't have a heart attack, haha. But seriously, I'm 3/4ths of the way done with a fic. My first in months! I'm a little ashamed to admit that actually. I also now have all these ideas for a KHR/White Collar crossover, so we'll see how that goes. I run out of steam with them half way through so nothings really useable yet, ugh.

+ Caught up with my manga, now I just need to catch up on Star Driver and I'm set, you know, until I get behind again dies

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.

I can't do this Hiatus. I AM A HIATUS FAILURE! I think I need to spend 40 or so minutes a day mindlessly wondering around LJ. OR ELSE I WILL GO INSANE AND START TEARING POOR DEFENSELESS STUFFED ANIMALS APART!

So screw you Hiatus. I never liked you anyway. OR YOUR FACE!

In other news I will be forced to be away from LJ this Thanksgiving Weekend. I am going to the far wilds where internet dare not tread; also known as my Mamaw's house. So maybe it's a little stupid to end my Hiatus now? Oh but here is my to-do list while I am there:

1. Read The Crysanthemum and The Sword
2. Read Journey to the West/Monkey
3. Read Japan as No. One - Lessons for the West
4. Read Writing About Art
5. Write Art History Essay
6. Write Anthropological History Short Paper 3
7. Write 4-6 Arts Asia Festival Reviews
8. Finish Writing KHR Halloween Fest piece (OMFG I suck for not doing this sooner. WHY MUST I BE SO LAZY BUSY!)
9. Eat Turkey and Get Fat

Ugh. Just Ugh.

In other news I'm thinking about creating a Comm for all my icons and fsts and stuff. What do you all think? Fic would probably still be posted here.

Also can anyone reccomend some good instrumental music that's NOT classical? I want some~
straightrhodes: (Get Off My Lawn!)
It's officially Oct. 25. WTF? Where did October go? Crap, crap, crap. I haven't even done the decorations for Halloween yet, usually I have a bunch up. Not to mention I haven't even started on my fic for the KHR Halloween exchange. Fuck! And SugoiCon is in less than two weeks! I need to finish my costume, and look around at hotels since the convention one is booked up. Plus with November comes a lot of work for my classes. Nooooo! I'm never taking so many paper writing centric classes again!

Also: People call and ask me to babysit, cause I am BROKE! I'm not gonna be able to buy much at the convention, *sniff*

Also II: I know I promised to have my Chrome FST up but iTunes is being a little bitch.

My life is getting away from me. I need to clean my room. (That always makes me feel better)
straightrhodes: (One of Those Days)

► I have a midterm tomorrow in Japanese Culture that I have not studied for. Wah!

► I have missed a week of classes because of my dislocated jaw and and upper respiratory infection. I now take about 10 pills a day of various medications.

► One of these medications is a sleeping pill. Unfortunately another of these is a steriod (for my jaw) the steriod keeps me up the sleeping pill tries to make me sleep, their duking it out with me in the middle.

► My Chiropractor adjusted my jaw today to try to make it better. Yeah, that hurt like a bitch.

► Once again, MIDTERMS!!!!!! ARGH!!!!!

► I'm almost done with my Chrome FST. Actually that's a lie, but I have the cover done (actually two covers so please vote for the best below) and I've picked all the songs. I'll try to have it up this weekend.

► I've also gained a little more inspiration for writing. Been working on the sequel to Bail. I need to be working on my fic for the KHR Halloween Exchange. I actually have a really good idea for it. I'm so lazy.

► Bought a tie and tie clip at this Vintage store I LOVE for my cosplay. The tie is not black. It's dark blue with lighter blue (the exact shade of my shirt) and white flowers. It's so perfect. I was gonna upload a pic, but I put my card in my other (nicer) camera that is currently located at my dad's office. Maybe I'll remember later. So now all I need is the dye, the eyepatch and the ring. I better get ordering.

NOW: Please vote for which cover you prefer for my Chrome FST

or



I know which I prefer, but what do you all think? The final ones will be much bigger btw.
 


straightrhodes: (Crown)

Chinese culture is a great class, but I don't want to write this paper. I have to compare and contrast two ancient Chinese philosphers and their views on death. No! Don't wanna!

This is what I get for putting shit off.

I hope this goes better than Anthroplogy Theory though.

Also: Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] daigranon , [livejournal.com profile] gakupoid , [livejournal.com profile] teruame , and [livejournal.com profile] nurikokoishii . Enjoy me bitching about school.
straightrhodes: (Get Off My Lawn!)

Writing another Anthropological Theory paper. THIS SUCKS! Why oh why did I take this class again? Oh yeah, it's required.

edit: It's DONE! *dies* If I don't get an A on this bitch I'm gonna fucking lose it.
straightrhodes: (Get Off My Lawn!)

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE FOR THIS STUPID ANTHROPOLOGY PAPER!!!
kill me now pls


straightrhodes: (Brown Haired Girl)


I AM A TERRIBLE PERSON!
Why can't I do anything without some sort of deadline or imminent prospect of failing to motivate me.

I did get some work done on my story Simplicity, but not as much as I'd like. I think I've hit a mental wall with it so I'm gonna try to work on something else. And I'm actually almost done with my Mukuro FST, BUT I CAN'T FIND THIS STUPID GREENDAY SONG I NEED. I do not want to dl the whole album it's on, cause I'd just delete it, but I guess that's what I'll do.

In University News:

In my Anthropological Theory class I have to write a paper and prepare to debate on Lewis Morgan, a Victorian era anthropologist who is considered the father of Kinship studies. I WANTED DARWIN DAMNIT! I know everthing about Darwin. The paper is due 9 am Tuesday. I have not started *dies*

Other classes are good, EXCEPT MY HAND IS ABOUT TO FALL OFF FROM ALL THE STUPID NOTES I'M TAKING! Plus I'm printing off about 30 pages or more worth of readings and powerpoints a week, cause I hate reading academic stuff on my laptop.


straightrhodes: (Default)


I just wanted to use the word nigh.

It's almost 4 in the morning, I haven't done any packing, we leave in less the 6 hours, I haven't slept. Sounds like a good way to start a vacation to me.

In my diffence Erin just gave me her flash drive with a bunch of music so I've been transferring it to my laptop, not to mention she kept me out until 1:30 in the morning helping her move and listen to her bitch about her mom (who is admittedly very bitch worthy). Oh well, I had fun, and I didn't actually do much moving of anything, mostly we just talked, hah hah.

God I forgot how much I love Phantom Planet. Such an awesome band!

I'm very ADD at 4 in the morning.

So in Cape Cod we stay at a wonderful beach house, with no internet. It's terrible. (There's also no A.C.) There is a starbucks in town, but I probably won't be posting on here if I take my laptop there.

I really need to go pack now. Ugh.
