I feel like my life for the last few months can be summed up as follows:

1. School started out stressful as fuck before my give-a-damn abruptly imploded, leaving me free to ascend to a higher plane of existence (is this Senioritis? will I return to epic levels of Sheer Panic when I have to write a 15/20-page paper for my grad seminar? WHO KNOWS~)

2. U.S. politics are dominating my life and everything is horrifying and I am living off John Oliver and Trevor Noah monologues because I really need the reminder that there are sane people in the world (vote, vote, vote vote vote vote vote vote vote--)

3. I somehow acquired another boyfriend because I have apparently become the type of person who meets guys at con raves so, uh.....this is a thing that's happening (2 months and counting and yeah, go ahead and insert, like, a bunch of heart eye emojis because I am Gone)

I think that pretty much covers it!

Oh, and I went to Italy over the summer (and got stuck there!). That was pretty awesome. 8D

welp

I am no longer in the Walking Boat!

I got my driver's license on thursday lol

So...I'm still around, haha. And now that school's out for summer I'm going to make another attempt at being more active in the LJ-posting department. So.

Most interesting thing that's happened to me lately is that I went to Brooklyn for the first time in my life, which would be awesome enough by itself, but I went there to see the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of the Henriad and I AM STILL NOT OVER IT. I WILL NEVER BE OVER IT. /screams/ I mean, David Tennant was Richard II. I was in the same building as the Doctor. My fifteen-year-old self was in hysterics. It was a pretty kickass trip.

But yeah, my life lately has pretty much consisted of school. Which has contributed to the realization that I really want to go to grad school, which...probably means I'm certifiable, lol, but if I can finangle a way to talk about this historical/literary stuff for the rest of my life, I'll be happy as a clam.

i need to stop writing blog posts at 2am

SO HOW WAS EVERYONE'S SUMMER???

Mine was pretty great--went to a few concerts, read some great books, saw a ton of awesome movies--and I just started at my big shiny new college yesterday and I think I'm really gonna enjoy this semester. Probably. x)

Also as of today I am...no longer a teenager? That's a little startling. I'll have to come up with some other excuse when I get into stupid shit, haha.

*snuggles one and all*

Same-sex marriage has been legalized. I...wow. It's a good fucking day to be an American, I have to say.

(I SOUND CALM. I AM NOT CALM. I HAVE BEEN CRYING ON AND OFF ALL DAY I THINK WE NEED A GROUP HUG ;~~;)

(Hey, I gotta practice my Japanese somewhere!)

Happy New Year, lovelies! I wish you all the very best of years. May 2015 treat you better than 2014 did. ♥♥♥

Finals are over, thank you god, and I have scraped by again! *Rock Lee pose*

Now I have all this free time, you know? I need to write fic (accepting winter/Christmas-y prompts now~). And also knit (dammit, Heather, I blame you for this).

Speaking of, I've managed to backslide horribly into the Naruto fandom in the wake of that, well, divisive finale, and am going through my old favorite fics like a maniac. Watching AMVs. I feel like it's 2008 again or something, it's so weird. x'D

So how are you lovely people? Going through academic hell, making holiday plans, getting into new fandoms? What's happening? :D

Anderson Cooper was just talking about the Buffalo snowstorm. 5 feet yesterday, 7 more feet expected, everyone's buried...which, you know, isn't unusual in Buffalo, but this is insane even for them. They called in the National Guard?? Shit. My whole family's up there, you know? I was born there. And suddenly the place is all over the news. This is nuts. Also? It's November what the fuck.

Any crazy weather stories y'all would like to share? We got a few inches here, but nothing too bad. Mostly it's just bitter, bitter cold. > __ >

...to start school back up. My books have not arrived. (Panic level: Neutral but increasing.) My Japanese setup looks nerve-wrackingly complicated. (Panic level: Neutral; awaiting further information.) I have not gone to bed before 1 in the morning in over a month, nor have I gotten out of bed (barring morning work shifts) before noon. Tomorrow I shall be dragging myself out of bed to face three hours of math before seven in the morning. (Panic level: Increasing, increasing...)

I Am Not Prepared.

So. For those of you also returning to your respective academic cages, tips for getting back into the swing of things with minimal suffering for all involved? Or just commiseration, I'll accept that as well. x''D

A very Merry Christmas to you all, my lovelies! I hope you're having an absolutely wonderful one so far. Feel free to tell me what you're doing/what you're getting! *nudge*

I got geeky thingggs, which makes me very very happy. Comic books, figurines, and a dalek dress that makes me want to do a little dance of joy. :D We're going to see The Hobbit DOS later, which hopefully won't make me cry too much, because I skipped a Merlin finale rewatch and am avoiding the DW Christmas Special till tomorrow as well because I didn't want to end up bawling my eyes out on Christmas due to fictional characters. Again. ^^;

Hearts and hugs to you all~♥

So I have an AO3 now! And oh, this is beautiful, I can finally subscribe to all these wonderful authors and skip Adult Content Warning pages and I just feel so inadequate posting my old stuff but damn, this site is fine.

I'm jinkandtherebels, and if any of you guys have AO3 accounts (and I know some of you do), let me know? :D

Mmkay, random question--how much snow do y'all currently have, if any? We've got a few inches here and it's cold as shit, but it does look nice and Christmassy.

wheeeee~

So it wasn't the flu. It was actually pneumonia, which is why I've been sick for two weeks straight. WELL THAT EXPLAINS A BIT.

Somehow, against all odds, I still managed to write like 14K words in two fucking days AND I HAVE WON NANOWRIMO. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I MANAGED TO DO THIS AND I AM GOING TO DROWN IN UNFINISHED SCHOOLWORK FORTHWITH BUT HOLY SHIT I MANAGED TO FINISH AND I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF. <3

(Sorry for the capslock, but I'm really excited!)
mildmaythecat: (headdesk)
I have managed to get the flu at the most inopportune of times. Have called off work three days in a row and jury's out on whether I'll be able to drag my ass in tomorrow. I'm a wreck. And I can't stop coughing. ;~~;

This has resulted in me being pretty damn behind on schoolwork. And 8,000+ words behind on my NaNo novel. Neither of which I have any energy whatsoever to remedy. *headdesk*

Also the Doctor Who 50th was disappointing. So, you know, if you want to join the Wet Blanket tent I have erected, feel free.

Any flu remedies or updates on your lives would be loved. x)

Biology is making me want to jump off a bridge. SO. Favorite and least favorite classes you've ever taken, go.
mildmaythecat: (Default)
What awesomeness have you enjoyed today? Gifts, food, family, etc.? Talk to me~

My mother is the best mother. I got a rainbow pin that says 'Hate is not a Family Value' and a SuperWhoLock shirt. xD

Hope you're all having a wonderful day! ♥

I FINISHED 50,000 WORDS OF MY NOVEL~~~~~

Happy Thanksgiving!!

So, fellow celebrators, talk to me--what are your plans? Do you watch the parade? Do you visit family? Most importantly, what do you eat? I wish to know. xD
mildmaythecat: (keepcalm)
My novel is currently sitting pretty at nearly 22,000 words. And by pretty of course I mean it's a mess of run-on sentences and pointless filler and the barest semblance of "plot" cobbled together in week two, but hey--it's all about the word count for now, right?

Fellow NaNoers, how goes it? What havoc has this project wreaked on your life so far?
mildmaythecat: (thatwhore)
Any fabulous plans for the day?
mildmaythecat: (thatwhore)
The library hired me. :D

Training is on Tuesday and my first day should be Wednesday. Wish me luck, yeah? ^^;
