|| 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: (sherlock | waste of make-up)
|| Fuck I'm sick. Went to the walk in clinic today and found out I have sinusitis, which sounds fancier than sinus infection.

|| I updated The Florid Florist on Tuesday? I think it was Tuesday. The next segment is not coming along at all. I can't quite get the characters to say what I want. Well, mostly it's Harvey. Harvey you bastard.

|| I'm probably going to end up going with Dad to pick out a headstone tomorrow. This is something I am not looking forward to at all. Even though it's been three months since my mom died I haven't been to the grave once since the funeral. I feel bad about it but just the idea of it makes me want to burst in to tears.

Still, I guess I should man up and just do it. I also wanted to get some bulbs planted since our cemetery lets you plant flowers at the grave sites but I'm unsure now if it's too late in the year or not. I messaged Sabrina (My friend studying Botany) but she's notoriously bad at responding to messages so who knows when I'll get a reply. I was thinking Daffodils and other Narcissus plants.

|| I got The Sims Pets a couple of days ago. The pets are so cute, omg. I haven't had much time to play it yet but it sure looks pretty, lol.

Edit OMG I THINK MY EX IS FLIRTING WITH ME OVER FACEBOOK. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!
straightrhodes: (misc | megane)
|| 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.
straightrhodes: (suits | #ican't)
|| How long has it been since I posted? I don't even remember.

|| I've been really busy the past few weeks, what with school and trying to figure out all the bills from my mom dying. THERE IS SO MUCH FREAKING PAPERWORK WHEN SOMEONE DIES!

|| Some good news: I'm going to SugoiCon again this year. It's in a couple of weeks. I'm really looking forward to it, even if I don't have any plans to cosplay this year. I can't wear what I wore last time because the suit I wore for that is the suit I wore to my mom's funeral, and now it's kinda the funeral suit. Which is really stupid I know, but I can't help but feel that it has funeral cooties or something. WHATEVER, THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN EXCITING THING! Somehow I manage to turn everything back to my mom is dead. Ugh.

|| Some even better news: May 2012 I will be in Hawaii for two weeks! That's right! Two weeks of sand, surf, and sun! wait, I don't actually like any of those things WHO CARES! IT'S MOTHERFUCKING HAWAII!

I'm actually going to visit Erin, my BFF who moved there for grad school. But while I'm there she's gonna take off work and we're gonna island hop and have fun!

I'm so ridiculously excited about this I can't even- I only have like 7 months to decide what I want to do there! is shot

|| Speaking of Hawaii: I ended up marathoning Hawaii Five-0 season 1. Yeah, it's awesome. Yeah, it's fucking gorgeous. Yeah, I hate the way it ended. Yeah, I kinda ship Danny/Steve. ummm, how can you not?

I'm kinda scared to watch the new season though because I heard it's really different and not as good. Like, all the banter and bromance and humor from S1 is just gone. Someone said it was like they got all new writers who never even saw the first season.

What should I do? *wibbles*

|| My flower!AU for Suits has turned kinda Epic. It's at like 18K words already. I fully expect it to hit 30K before I'm done with it. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME? This was supposed to be a short meme fill to get me back in to the swing of writing. I also don't update it as often as I should. Oh well.

|| Injury Updates: My Coccyx turned out to be fractured in the accident, but there is nothing the doctors can do, so I just get the joy of sitting on a broken ass all day. Yay! Not. And it turns out I tore the meniscus in my right knee. If the physical therapy I'm doing doesn't fix it I might have to have surgery.

The wreck was the accident that keeps on giving. Except I don't like these gifts.

|| So what's up with everyone else?
straightrhodes: (wc | coffee timez)
// 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!

straightrhodes: (wc | high five!)
// 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?

\\ Been busy the past few days trying to figure out my schedule for the summer, SO I JUST REALIZED IT'S BEEN AWHILE SINCE I LAST POSTED! Sorry!

\\ I have been playing a lot of The Sims 3 since I just got the new Generations expansion. I get crazy obsessed with this game, haha.

\\ I have been trying to write but I think I have writers block or something. Well, not exactly writers block, because I can write. It's just I HATE EVERY FREAKIN' THING I MANAGE TO TYPE!

\\ So this weekend I'm going to Cincy to see a Reds Game. It's gonna be me, Sabrina & Jamil, Sarah, her husband Justin, and two of their kids. So yeah, I'm kinda like the odd man out but it was my idea in the first place SO I REFUSE TO FEEL AWKWARD!

\\ So New York with Laurel is totally on. We plan to leave August 13th and take the train. We hope to have between 3 and 5 full days there. Any ideas for what we should do?

\\ CHECK OUT MY ICON!!!!! I love it so ridiculously much.
straightrhodes: (ppl | zooey shy smile)
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
straightrhodes: (khr | get off my lawn!)
# 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: (sherlock | snooooze)
// My back! Ack! I did something to it and now it hurts!!! I went to the chiropractor though and he put magic tape on it. Seriously, this stuff is amazing! It reduces swelling, tightness, and pain like *snaps fingers* that!

// Spent the weekend in Cincy. Went to the Kenwood Mall (which is practically my dream mall, for reals). I bought a top and pair of shorts at Anthropologie. A top a Francesca's. and two tops, pair of pants, and a headband (to go with my dress for Sabrina's wedding) at H&M. Well I shouldn't say I bought, because my mom paid, haha.

// We also went to the Cincy Zoo. We saw baby gibbons, a baby giraffe, and baby bonobos! OMG so cute!

Okay, so the gibbon is now much bigger than this, but it's just as cute, seriously.

// Tomorrow I go to Cheapside for Sarah's B-day. Holy crap, do I need to get her a present? Shit! What to do, what to do?!

// I'm about 1900 words in to my girl!Sherlock crack piece. It's a very strange crack piece though because it's crack that takes itself seriously. Yeah. That's how I roll, baby! (WTF?)

// I am tired... A storm kept me tossing and turning last night, and the tossing and turning hurt my back ;_;

// Wondering if I should start playing MMORPGs again. I stopped because my old computer was crap, but now with this shiny new one I wonder if I should start back up. What should I play if I do though?
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: (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: (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 had a dermatology appointment yesterday, and OMG THE DOCTOR IS SO FREAKIN' HOT! We are talking movie star handsome here. And he's only like 30! AND I LOOK LIKE CRAP BECAUSE MY SKIN IS SO NASTY!!!!

So I got prescribe some very expensive lotion and a face wash. The wash is a sodium-sulfur wash. I SMELL LIKE A HOTSPRING! Or a clam bed but hotspring sounds better.

I also went to my chiropractor, who is not quite as hot but he looks pretty good for a 45 year old man. He cracked my back and it hurt so bad. Much worse than usual. Probably because I've been carrying my laptop around.

It's so warm~ It's going to be 65 degrees today. I'm so happy!

Been babysitting like mad. I actually have money! Holy Crap! What should I spend it on?

Me and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon have started work on a truly fabulously epically non-crack KHR/White Collar cross. I haven't been this excited to write something in a long time.

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

Over to the left are links to my brand new communities.

[livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks is for graphics, mixes, etc. I just posted a new, never before seen, mix to it. Check it out yo!

[livejournal.com profile] psychopompnovel is for my novel I'm working on. I'd love it if even on person checked it out, although right now there isn't much there, the first chapter will be released shortly.

I am still working on fic, which will continue to be posted here.

Also: Thanks a lot [livejournal.com profile] daigranon. You got my into Star Driver and now I can't help but love the flamboyant silly-seriousness that is it.
