|| Holy crap, am I actually updating two days in a row?! lol.

|| Since it's now fall, and the temperature outside my house has finally dropped below 70, I decided I needed a new layout. I wanted something a little darker for fall/winter. As usual I stuck to something really simple. I kept the layout the same except for adding the colors to the different special fonts and also the links. I really like the kinda monochrome look and then the bright pop of colors.

I also changed my profile code to match my new layout.

Now I won't change anything for another six months, lol.

|| I've been watching all the episodes of Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs they have available on On Demand. I forgot how much I love the Discovery channel. But omg why are there always giant spiders?!?

|| I just got my prompt for the Suits Christmas Fic Exchange. I'm really super excited! Unfortunately now that I have this to work on The Florid Florist might be put on the back burner. I want to do my best and really come up with something good for my Giftee. Plus the deadline is Dec. 4th, which doesn't seem too soon but with my classes and everything I'll already be running low on time.

|| I need to start using Tumblr again. I kinda forgot I even had one, lol.

# Finally finished and posted that Sherlock fic. It ended up being more than 6500 words, haha. I found a truly wonderful lady to beta and brit-pick it for me. It really needed it too!

# OMG! School's almost over! *hyperventilates and dies*

# I have SO MUCH TO DO once school is over. It's all shit I've been putting of. (I've been using school as an excuse so I'll have to find a new one soon.)

1. Clean Room
2. Clean out fridge
3. Finish training at Ashland
4. Prepare for Sabrina's Wedding
5. Finish redecorating Bathroom
6. Buy new bed at Ikea (and you know, put it together)
7. Clean out closet
8. More (there is always more)

# Chinese project is going well I think. We're writing about two of director Zhang Yimou's movies, Raise the Red Lantern and Under the Hawthorn Tree. THEY ARE BOTH SO SAD!

# Me and Laurel hope to spend about 5 days in New York City this summer! OMG! It will be so much fun! I've never been. Every other major city on the East Coast I've been to but not NYC. I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN NO MATTER WHAT!

# Still training for interning at Ashland. I go on yet another tour tomorrow. Did you know one of Henry Clay's sons was commited to an Insane Asylum?

# ERIN IS DRIVING ME INSANE! And it's weird. I know she's not leaving till July but I already miss her. I think I miss how our friendship used to be. Now we have practically nothing in common and she stresses me out so much. I hate to say it but Erin's kinda a bad friend too. She goes on and on about her life and her problems, but I can't say anything about what stresses me out? I wonder if I'm not clinging to our friendship not for friendship's sake but for my memories.

Also: Who doesn't know what their hobbies are? I asked Erin what she likes to do and she couldn't answer me. How weird is that?

# It has been raining for 5 days. FIVE DAYS It's so depressing!

# Watched the first episode of Aoi no Exorcist. It was good. Maybe I should give the manga another go?

# Sorry to my flist for having to put up with so many rants, especially about Erin.

HOLY CRAP! There is only ONE more week of classes and then a week of finals!

Sabrina's wedding is in 3 weeks! OMG! I still need shoes and bag and a gift!

Just finished my 5 page paper on The Aesthetics of Chanoyu. WHY ARE MY CLASSES SO WEIRD?

I have TWO projects due next week! They're group projects thank god!

Because of those two projects I can't go to my grandmother's for Easter! I AM GOING TO BE ALONE ALL WEEKEND! I'm lonely~

I have two Chinese movies to watch before tomorrow. Ugh. They are subtitles it's just that the movies seem kind of boring.

A Panda Express just opened in the Student Center. I haven't gotten to eat there yet because it's been swarmed. I want to try it~

If you like Sherlock (BBC) check out [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. I posted a Sherlock Fanmix a few days ago.

Speaking of Sherlock I'm 5000 words in to a fic that was suppose to be like 3000. AND I'M NOT EVEN DONE YET! I'm too damn wordy.

Might go see a movie this weekend. What should I see?
straightrhodes: (Crown)
Finished my Anthropology of Tourism paper 3 hours before it was due, yes! I wrote about the Tourist Gaze in Relation to the American Museum of Natural History in D.C. Yeah, that was the title of the paper, haha.

Got a 96% on my Soft Power and the Japanese Tea Ceremony Test, not too shabby.

Super Duper excited about mine and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon's KHR/WC cross. We've started writing it now. Eeeeee!

I hope to complete a mix or two this weekend. I haven't really worked on anything other than my HW the past two weeks.

My dog got a haircut. He's now Nekkid. Seriously. It had been so long since we took him that his furr got matted and they had to shave him really close. Pierre is also really fat now. I find it funny.

Went out to a Chinese/Japanese restuarant called Fulin's last weekend for a friends Birthday. One of my friends is ethnically Korean, but she was adopted by a white couple. Our Chinese waitress started speaking to her in Mandarin asking if she wanted the special menu, we said yes once we realized what she wanted. It had all sorts of weird things not on the normal menu. We tried the Twice Cooked Pork. It was really good!

Me and my bestie had a huge, huge fight. Almost ended out friendship fight, but then we started talking (via text so we couldn't yell and had to think about what we were going to say) and we realized that both of us felt like the other wasn't respecting us and ur feelings. (That sentence seems weird, hmm). Well apparently we had some issues that we just hadn't talked about until finally we couldn't take it anymore. Luckily we realized this and we both really want to make up with the other, so we've been talking in person and I think things are going to be better than before.

Went to my endocrinologist, he still sucks. MAKE ME BETTER ALREADY!

I finished a story, but the ending is weak! I need a beta to help me make it better! It's a KHR Gen fic, and it's short. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!

I am addicted to the games on my phone. It's ridiculous.

Sprained my ankle again yesterday. Slipped on the stairs of the Fine Arts Building at school.

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.

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: (Rain)

Well I spent some time today working on a new KHR fic as well as my FST for Mukuro. Unfortunately I'm running into a small problem. MOST OF MY SONGS FOR MUKURO INVOLVE MANIPULATION! WHY?!

Mukuro you bastard.

Maybe if I push myself I'll get both the fic and the FST done this weekend.

I make no promises however. I am well aware of my own laziness

IN COMPLETLY UNRELATED NEWS!

I went to see my Endocrinologist today. He basically told me to jus keep taking my pills and he'll see me again in four months. He didn't even seem concerned that I'm sleeping a lot. Like sometimes eleven or twelve hours a day if I can. I'm concerned. I don't usually sleep that much.
