\\ I'm pretty much feeling better. Or at least I no longer feel like I'm gonna keel over from climbing the stairs a couple times.

\\ Something that is not better however is my knee. After Thanksgiving I'm going to make an appointment with a physical therapist. It's weird some days it hurts more than others :/

\\ Speaking of Thanksgiving. We will be heading to my Grandmother's on Wednesday. Once again I will be without Internet or Cellphone reception (unless I drive for half an hour in any direction)(seriously it's a half-hour drive to get any reception)

I kinda know that this is going to be a tear-jerker of a holiday because you know, it's the first since my mom died, and we're going to see my mom's family. So there will be a lot of crying all around, for everyone. And then when we go to leave my Grandmother will be sure to lay the guilt on as thickly as possible. (Although I do deserve some of it because I really do not call as much as I should)

\\ School is sucking. It's the end of the semester though so that's not a surprise. I have a lot to do over Thanksgiving weekend. And yes, I'm totally going to be using schoolwork to avoid my family.

\\ Been using Tumblr a lot more recently. I'm starting to enjoy it. It took me a while to get used to it though. I'll still be on here a lot though. Basically Tumblr will be for shorter posts and rebloging. LJ will still be my journal and my main platform for writing.

My tumblr for those interested is: HERE

\\ Thinking about going to see Tower Heist tomorrow. I heard it's funny. Has anyone seen it?

|| 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: (text | true story yo!)
// I had a nightmare Wednesday night that was just awful. I dreamed about being in the emergency room after the accident, but instead of just my mom dying, my dad and brother were dead too. It's managed to really freak me and left me so unbalanced. I actually left my phone in Whitehall (the main classroom building at my university). Luckily a girl found it and called my dad who asked her to bring it to his office (he works at my university).

// I've had some trouble with my writing because of the nightmare. I feel bad about not updating The Florid Florist the past couple of days but I just can't focus on my writing. I think I'll be able to write tomorrow though. If I'm not too busy. I actually have a lot to do tomorrow.

// School wise I'm doing well. I'm rocking at Italian. I got 102% on our first test and I'm pretty sure I got an A on the second one that we took Thursday.

// Time for a meme! yay!

>>>>> Reply to this post and I will pick five of your userpics for you to talk about in your journal. And others will do the same and this will create a never-ending loop of icon squee, etc, etc, let's talk about ICONS.



[livejournal.com profile] acquiescence_ picked out these icons for me:


- I made this one! It's from Kuroshitsuji. Honestly it's one of the funniest scenes in the manga, I think. Poor Sebastian. He loves kitties, but they don't love him~
- PIKACHU! Who doesn't love Pikachu? He's adorable! I was actually big in to Pokemon back when it first came out. I was like 9 or so then? I especially like this Pikachu drawing because he's so adorable pudgy. I WANT TO PINCH HE'S LITTLE CHEEKS!
- THE OLD SPICE GUY! WITH A MONOCLE! How can you not love the old spice guy? And also monocles.
- LOL. Saito's face. I love it. Honestly Saito was once of my favorite characters in this movie. He was such a BAMF. OH SAITO, YOU AND YOUR MONEY AND BUYING AIRLINES AND SKEPTICAL!EYEBROWS.
- MOZZIE! He's my favorite White Collar character. Which is kinda ridiculous but whatevs. Mozzie's the shit, yo! I just love his expression here, he's all 'Don't think I'm not on to you.'

// Thinking about starting Hawaii 5-0. I half watched the premiere last season and then real life got in the way and I didn't really catch anything else. Have any of you seen it? Is it good?

// My florist!AU is going really well on the Suits Meme. I'm writing every day and I like what I'm writing. IT'S A SEPTEMBER MIRACLE!

// Now I'm going to totally pimp my AU. Be warned it is a WIP, and also mildly slashy. Hey! I'm a link! Click Me! <- DO IT! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

// Thinking about making a FST for Suits. Which character should I start with; Donna, Harvey, or Mike?

// I think I'm going to buy Sims: Medieval. A friend of mine has it and it looks awesome. YOU CAN SEND PEOPLE TO 'THE PIT' WHERE THEY MUST DO BATTLE WITH A MONSTER! (everyone in my kingdom would end up in the pit, lololol)

// I like Italian. Yes the nouns have gender, but there are only two (unlike German) and it's easy to tell which noun is which gender (also unlike German).

Welcome!

// I want to welcome [livejournal.com profile] dancy_dreamer, [livejournal.com profile] acquiescence_, [livejournal.com profile] biodarkness, [livejournal.com profile] ladyknightanka, and [livejournal.com profile] oddlyfamiliar from the Suits Friending Meme. Enjoy my journal full of school bitching and fandom stuff, yay!

// Speaking of Suits - Why am I so obsessed with you? Besides the fact you're awesome. And Donna. Can't forget Donna. But seriously if you're on my F-list and don't watch this show what are you waiting for? GO WATCH IT I still can't believe the season is ending after only 12 episodes. SO UNFAIR And we have to wait a YEAR for more. It's like Sherlock BBC all over again. MAKING ME FALL IN LOVE AND THEN BREAKING MY HEART! or in Suits-speak IT'S LIKE MY SOUL HURTS

// Yeah, I'm pretty damn obsessed with this show. I've actually managed to write for it and everything!!! I'm so excited!!! It's the first time since my mom died that I feel motivated to write AND I DIDN'T EVEN HATE IT WHEN I WAS DONE! The story is below this entry. I also have a WIP up at the Meme too. It's a florist!AU and I'm afraid I've bitten off quite a bit with it, but I'm having fun. I'm actually having fun with my writing again.

// Real life stuff! I've decided to drop from full time student to part time this semester. I just can't handle a full course load right now. My emotions are all over the place. I almost broke my cell phone because it wouldn't send a text message yesterday. I went from perfectly fine to APOCALYPTIC RAGE in about .5 seconds flat.

// Now for something more fun. I'M GOING TO SUGOICON AGAIN THIS YEAR! YAY! Got the room booked already and everything. I think I'm going to need something just fun to look forward to.

// I need a new profile code but I'm too lazy~ to make my own. Any suggestions of comms to find some?

// I really want to start playing an MMORPG again, but I don't know which I should try. I also thought about just trying a regular RPG for PC. Any suggestions?

// I think this is the best I've felt since Mom died.
straightrhodes: (wc | coffee timez)
God, I fucking suck. I'm sorry I have so totally failed when it comes to posting and commenting and shit. I actually do usually read everyone's entries, but something about commenting or even replying to my own comments just seems so hard. Which is so utterly ridiculous. Somehow just getting up the motivation to do anything that requires putting my thoughts down in coherent words is completely beyond me it seems.

That segues nicely in to my topic: grieving fucking sucks. You know that five stages of grief idea? Yeah, that's complete and utter bullshit. DON'T BELIEVE IT~

I'll tell you how grief works.

You'll be completely fine one minute, and then you're totally blindsided by this overwhelming feeling of sad. It's not even sorrow because that's the first couple weeks when everything in the world makes you cry. This isn't sharp like that. Just a bone deep feeling of sadness that's always waiting for a quiet moment to sneak up and wrap around your heart so all you feel is 'I miss them. I hate this. I wish they were here.'. So you never want those quiet moments. You try to stay busy and distracted because if you sit and you think you just get drowned in all these feelings.

Feelings suck.

And you know, sometimes it still doesn't seem real. And it's not denial. I know it's real and she's gone and I'm never going to see her again or talk to her again or hug her again.

The days just keep marching on and before you even realize it you're building a new life without them because it never stops even when they're gone.

Shit. I didn't mean for this to be all about my mom again.

So since I'm having such trouble with my writing I'm thinking about trying to write for some of the Kink Memes that are around. I probably would not be writing the actual kinky stuff, because I think I would die of spontaneous combustion should I try, but maybe trying to write short little things for prompts will get me back in the creative mood. Do any of you have any prompts for me? I'll write for Suits, Sherlock, White Collar, KHR, and a handful of other things. Mostly Gen.

School is going well. I'm liking Italian, even if I can't roll my r's.

I'll be going to SugoiCon in November. I just booked my room. I'm so excited but I'm not sure I'll be cosplaying this year.
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: (kuro | one of those days)
// Today was the last day of classes. I still have two finals next week and then it's bye bye spring semester.

// I'm so, so scared about my grades. OMG! I'm freaking out. I screwed up this semester by not going to class enough. Ugh. My heart is beating so fast.

// A lot happened this semester with me taking a look at what I really wanted in my education. So I'm not a Art History major rather than Anthropology.

// Feeling weird. Like a bittersweet feeling, hmm.

// It's hard to be excited when two of my friends are leaving in a couple months.

# 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.
straightrhodes: (wc | mozzie wants you)
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: (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: (F*ck is always apropos)
// 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?
straightrhodes: (True Story yo!)
// I caught the flu last week. Fabulous. But I'm better now, so yay?

// It's Spring Break and I've done nothing. Mainly because I'm still getting over being sick.

// Got a hair cut last Saturday. I only got about two inches cut off but damn does my hair seem shorter D: Still I had to get my discolored and broken ends off.

// Shit I have a lot to accomplish. I have about three fics I need to be working on. School work (blargh). Cleaning my room. Dying my hair. Painting my bathroom. Ugh. SO MUCH TO DO!

// Erin got in to the University of Hawaii. I'm happy and really sad at the same time. I don't want her to leave me! I have so much trouble making friends and she's been my friend for over ten years now. My best friend for five! Plus two of my other really close friends are leaving too. Sabrina is moving to Georgia to study Botany and Laurel is, well I'm not sure where she's going but she wants to get a job out of town. When did all my friends start growing up into responsible adults?

// Speaking of Sabrina, her Bridal shower is in a week and a half. In Louisville. Jeez. That's over an hour away. Becca is hosting so I guess that's why but shouldn't the Bridal shower be in the same city as the bride? I still need to find a dress for the wedding as well.

// So I'm kinda over the whole Japan trip thing. I figure it would have been cancelled any way what with the Earthquake and Tsunami and all. All of my friends in Japan are fine. Fumiko (who lives in Tokyo) said her house shook terribly but other than that nothing. The rest of my friends live either on the west coast or down south. I've already made donations to the Red Cross. I'd offer something for auction, but real life, you know?

// Since the Japan trip is cancelled indefinately (meaning my school is no longer going to offer it) I decided to look again at some other trips. I've decided that I'm going to try for a 8 week internship in London next summer (2012). I'm hoping they'll have an internship with a museum I could do.

// So I've decided instead of lanquishing this summer to take up the Cello again. I used to play years ago and I loved it but circumstances prevented me from continuing. I'm going to find a private tutor and take up lessons again. I fear I've forgotten all I know, and of course I don't have my cello any more, but I'm really looking forward to it. Now I just need to find a teacher, haha.

// I may go on a trip with Erin this summer too, if she doesn't get a job with one of the National Parks like she wants. Erin is turning a little weird though. Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving because I'm not sure how long a shared background and proximity would have kept us as friends after all. She doesn't believe in taking medicine or eating chemicals (I take a ton of medication and I get the distinct impression that Erin does not approve of my hormone pills or my anti-depressants, she once implied that depression and OCD was something that people 'just needed to get over'). She's super animal-rights (I buy free range and organic when I can but frankly I want to solve human rights issues (such as human trafficking!)) She once told me that animal cruelty was in the same league as child pedophile! NO! NOT AT ALL! To be perfectly honest I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Erin has moved to a commune or something. It's getting that weird. Erin has never been very pragmatic though, and that's irritating. I'm a very pragmatic person at the end of the day.

// Going to IKEA and Anthropologie this weekend with my mom. We love IKEA so much, haha. We're such weirdos. Hahah.

// Tomorrow is St. Paddy's day. Do I own any green?

// Finally broke down and bought a year long paid membership. It's so nice not having any pesky ads.

// Yesterday Sabrina asked me if I was bringing a date to her wedding. I looked at her and said, "What on earth makes you think I'm bringing a date?". In the four years I've been at college I've been on two dates. When I mentioned that to my mom she said "Really? It's been that many?" Thanks mom. Apparently guys find me terrifying (according to Eric my gay friend). Maybe I should become a lesbian. I'm constantly being hit on by lesbians.
straightrhodes: (Default)
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).
straightrhodes: (Get Off My Lawn!)
+ I somehow managed to hurt my back, really badly. I don't know what I did but for three days I was having back spasms and I've had three emergency sessions with my chiropractor and massage therapist.

+ Pissed at my Tourism teacher. She made her test too long so I didn't get to finish the essay, which was worth 30 pts. 15 kids were sitting there when she called 'Turn in your papers in two minutes or get a 0'. Hopefully she takes that in to account when she grades. She's never taught the class before so I think she just underestimated how long it would take.

+ I've had no time to do anything. I thought I'd get a mix done and the second chapter of mine and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon's fic finished up but noooo, I've been too busy. If it's not school it's babysitting or friends or stuff at home or I'm laid up high on pain killers.

+ I haven't yet gotten a comfirmation that I'm in for the Japan program. Now I'm getting worried...

+ Started a new diet. It's pretty stict but I'm definately eating healthier and I'm hoping to lose 15 pounds before May 14th.

+ Speaking of May 14th that's Sabrina's Wedding!!!! I mentioned this ages ago but me and Erin (my bestie) are going to be ushers (because she already has 4 bridesmaids and decided she just could not have any more, haha). The wedding colors are so pretty but now I need to buy a dress, BUT FIRST I MUST LOSE WEIGHT! Not that I'm fat, I'm not. I'd just like to lose weight, haha.

+ Tired... is it friday? No? Damn.
straightrhodes: (Natsu)
Guess who's going to be spending six weeks in Japan this summer? That's right, ME!

I'm doing a study tour with my university, I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!

Here's a link to what the tour's about if you're interested: Clickie!

It's going to be so amazing!!!!! A friend of mine is going for the first part of the trip (it's a trip split in to two parts, three weeks touring Japan on the Rail system, three weeks with a family in Yatsushiro), so that will be awesome!

The last time I was in Japan I was by myself and it was only for two weeks so this is going to be SO MUCH BETTER and the last time was already FANTASTIC.

OMG! JAPAN!!!!

/uncontrollable excitement
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.

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

I've been so lazy about posting recently, haha. But school just started back, so I have an excuse, kinda. I'm pretty happy with my classes this semester. They look really interesting.

Classes:
Intro. to Archaeology
Anthropology of Tourism
Chinese Culture from 1860
Soft Power and the Japanese Tea Ceremony

Two of these classes are Special Topics classes, can you guess which ones? Haha. (Hint: The weirder the title the more likely it is to be a Special Topics class)

I'm also really excited cause I leave for D.C. on Sunday! I'll only be there a couple of days but it should be fun. Museums, woot!

I'm wrecking everything. I've been put back on academic probation. This is like the 3rd time since I started going to Uni. I think I'm seriously messed up in the head because everything will start perfectly fine, but next thing I know I sabotage myself and my grades instantly tank.

I've really managed to screw things up and waste a lot of my parents money.

Plus the new semester starts Wednesday and I still haven't completed all my course work for last semester.

And I got a D, a fucking D, in Anth. Theory. Luckily I can retake it, hopefully with a different teacher who is not nearly so much of a total bitch.

I'm hoping the work me and my doctor have done to regulate my medicine will help everything, but I know part of the problem lies with me, not just my anxiety and depression.

In good news I'm going to D.C. the 23rd through the 25th. If nothing else I have that to look forward to.
