- Haven't touched NPT in a week, though I've been poking at other things that don't actually have due dates. Oops. ^_^;;;

- Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream mixed with chocolate almond milk makes the best freaking milkshakes ever. Just sayin'. (It's probably roughly the same with regular chocolate milk, but the almond is what I had on hand, so.)

- The USB game controller I bought specifically for The Walking Dead? Also works with my PSP emulator. *screech* Which makes Persona 3 about 1000 times easier to navigate, let me tell you. I would say that this is clearly the mark of the end of any productivity I might've had this summer except for one thing: my emulator crashes pretty much anytime I've actually managed to do anything useful, before I can save. >_<

- Finished Natsume- four seasons and two OVA's. I'll be honest with you, I was starting to get bored with it toward the end because it's the same thing every episode. Overall fairly enjoyable, and certainly not the worst thing I've ever seen, but meh. (I did come away from it shipping Natsume/Natori and Natsume/Tanuma. Mostly Natsume/Natori. Fuck, they weren't subtle about that, were they?)

- Also finished Akuma no Riddle. I'm... not sure what to think? I'm sitting here trying to decide what I should rate it on MAL, and I don't know. The whole thing was kind of meh, and then the last episode was a huge WTF. I think I wanted to like it a lot more than I did. Ehhhh I think 5/10 is fair.

- Debating watching Free! again before the second season starts... probably a bad idea though, I already have enough new stuff I'm trying to get through to justify re-watching something. Not like it has a complicated plot or anything. XD

- "Summer hours" start for the library as of July 1st, which cuts the time I can spend there as a safe place to avoid dealing with people I don't want to deal with. Ungh. I suppose that means more time at home reading manga and playing games and watching things that I've downloaded previously? XD

- I'm actually getting a bit of a farmer's tan on my arms from walking to the library all the time in t-shirts. XD Oops? Kind of weird, because I burn quickly, so I don't generally tan. (Well, that and I'm a homebody/don't like heat, so I usually stay inside most of the summer. XD)

31 Day Meme, Day 6

6. Your 5 senses right now
Uh, the same five I always have? This is a dumb question.

As far as non-meme stuff, here we go:
☁ My certificate of residence for school has been acquired. I had to spend more time dealing with my mother than I would've liked in order to accomplish this, but whatever, it's done. Now I can pay my bill for school. The plan is to deal with that tomorrow.

☁ Saw an apartment Saturday. Good location, big room, roommates are not super neat freaks, gay friendly, super cute kitten (who spent most of the time pretending that I was a good climbing tree. Good thing I wore jeans. XD The guy was like, "wow, she really likes you already.") It's at the top of my "I can afford this" range, but I'm not sure I'm going to get much better because rent is freaking ridiculous here. He's still showing the apartment, so we'll see what happens. I'm not going to hold my breath. I'm going to text him tomorrow and see what's going on. In the meantime... I should probably make some more phone calls tomorrow too. Ungh. I want to do that about as much as I want a hole in my head. I fucking hate calling people, and of course most of these are like "phone calls only!" YOU GUYS SUCK.

☁ Need to go to old work and talk to Dave about saving boxes for me. Even if I wasn't planning on moving, I would probably still do this, because I'm at a point where I just feel like I'm moving things back and forth to and from the same places in my room, and getting stuff put away in boxes would at least let me put things away neatly in an orderly way instead of haphazardly thrown everywhere.

TL;DR- Family bullshit )

☁ Oh yeah, and did I mention that classes start again on the 26th and I'm both freaked the hell out about it and can't wait to go back? Need to get sleep back in order. It was better and then it wasn't, sooooo. <_< It's not nowhere near as bad as it was at one point, but still not terribly good.

☁ So basically, long story short, I'm super stressed/anxious about EVERYTHING and trying to keep up with my daily cleaning sessions and mostly failing, so. On the upside, it does look considerably better just from what I did today?

☁ I've also been working on a random fic bit I found in my bunny folder. I... don't even know how this happened. But yay writing?

Yes, I know, it's been ages. I think most of you have seen me around, so you know I'm still alive, at least. I initially had an excuse with finals, but uh, that was a while ago, so... basically since then it's just been good old fashioned laziness. Yep. ^_^;;;  So let's get this over with, shall we? XD

Long as per usual, but these are for me anyway, so whatever XD )

So we'll see how much of that actually happens by the end of the summer. ^_~ Knowing me... ah, let's get real, I'll be lucky if I can cross anything off my list. But again, we'll see! Now, I'm going to make myself finish this episode of Kuroko (ugh *whine*) and get in the shower and maybe like... do stuff, I dunno. Maybe. My head hurts like fuck, so I might just sleep or something, who knows. XD

☁ I've had my claddagh ring put away for quite some time now (I had my reasons). Recently, I started thinking that I should start wearing it again, because I really do love the piece and it's a design I've never been able to find a duplicate of. I pulled it out tonight... and it doesn't fit properly anymore. :( I can wear it on my middle finger, but it still makes me nervous that I'm going to lose it. SOB.

☁ Officially six episodes into D.Grayman. I have two thoughts so far:
1. Didn't FMA already do this plot? And from what I can see so far- though it's only been six episodes, so I can't really properly judge- FMA did it better. Just saying.
2. What really keeps bugging me right from the beginning is that Allen's voice is so... soft and gentle. It works for Akira in Hikago, but it doesn't really work for me here. But maybe I just need to get used to it, or something. I don't know. Every time he opens his mouth I'm expecting a different voice (something like... I don't know, Ed's or Ryoma's seiyuu.).

☁ I'm now officially caught up on Loveless. Ended up re-reading most of volume 9, too, because I didn't remember exactly where I was. Is it just me, or is Ritsuka a lot more grown up all of a sudden? I mean, it's been a long time, so my memory may be faulty, but eh. All of a sudden I'm going "Wait, he's still supposed to be 12?", and I don't remember doing that before. I have a sneaking suspicion that they're doing that so when Soubi eventually pounces him, it won't seem so bad. XD

☁ So basically, I'm doing everything BUT working on BG. ^_^;;; The procrastination process is fully underway! I do have a playlist, though, so there's that. And I did a piece of investigating for something that may have potential, but it's definitely a case of "moar research needed!" Ugh. We'll see. If I can't work with it, I'll throw it in the free the bunnies post.

See Ver. See Ver procrastinate. As per fucking usual. >_<

I need to make brownies for the [info]help_japan  thing, because I know me and if I don't go to the post office tomorrow, I won't go until next week. I should probably do laundry because I'm in the middle of setting up an appointment to see this apartment for either tomorrow or Thursday (probably Thursday at this point), and while I have stuff that's wearable clean, I don't have anything that's out of the dryer clean. If that makes any sense to anybody but me.

Also, what does one WEAR for something like this? Like... do I go casual, jeans and a t-shirt (probably this one), or try to impress by dressing up a bit more? Taking into consideration that I'm going to have to walk there. It's not AGES, but it's over a mile, and it's supposed to be icky both days. So things like high heels are not going to happen regardless. I feel like casual would be more the way to go, because normal me is t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers... and this is someone who will likely see me in my pajamas if it all works out. But I don't want to give off a bad impression either. GAH. I'm probably thinking about this too much, but I -really- want this freaking apartment and I would totally kick myself if I blew my shot at it because of something I was wearing. >_<

Plus I'm supposed to be writing. And I should probably sit down and do that homework assignment, especially since I've been avoiding it a little bit because when I first looked at it, I went O_o and promptly decided I was totally going to fail at this.

Aaaaaand it's after 5am. Why is it after 5am?
verloren1983: (All About Me)
I'd love to say that I've been doing something constructive the last couple of weeks, but really... not so much. I've been watching Bleach and doing a bit of reading (read book one of The Dresden Files, now working on the first Percy Jackson book) and fooling around on SW. And LORD. I've gotten back into playing LORD. And Sims. Kind of playing FFXIII, but I'm still stuck, so meh. *headdesk*

Basically, I'm vegging out. Scale says I haven't gained any weight, but I feel like I have. Still eating whatever the hell I want at the moment. Eventually that will pass, I'm sure, but right now I just don't have the motivation to actually DO anything about it right now.

A couple of weeks ago, a co-worker that I hate started bitching at me for something I didn't do... and I kind of snapped. Not super bad- I have that old Irish temper, TRUST ME it could've been a whole lot worse- but still, it wasn't pretty. The manager that was on said he'd never seen me so angry and proceeded to send me home because I clearly needed the day. Oh, and did I mention that when I actually left, I'd been there a whole 15 minutes? It was not even 5 when June started in on me, and I spent almost 10 in the back trying to calm down enough to be able to go up front and not punch her in the face. Yeah. That has to be some kind of record. The week after, I got as much of an apology as I'm ever going to get from her, so everything seems okay there. I never got in trouble either. ^_^;;;

Had an eye appointment just over a month ago and they still haven't called me about my glasses. Maybe I should go over there tomorrow. Getting a little bit anxious about that. I GIVE YOU MONEY AND YOU GIVE ME SHINY NEW GLASSES, THAT'S HOW IT WORKS. Eh. Either they're not done or somebody dropped the ball and they forgot to call me. :/

I'm probably going to need a new cell phone in the next year (pffft, there are pieces coming off, it's only a matter of time). As much as spending the money doesn't thrill me... a new phone would be cool. I'm of two different thoughts here, though. I now have the opportunity to get a cheap, simple phone, return to the "put $20 on it every three months" thing, and just... save a lot of money there. I don't need the full keyboard or the expensive stuff anymore. Plus it's blue. :3 On the other hand, they have this Rumor Touch one that looks really cool. XDDD Thing is, it's $130, a slider-type phone and I hate those, and half of the features require a data plan. I'm not addicted enough to facebook to PAY to use it. The main thing that appeals to me, though, besides the touch screen, is that you can actually put mp3's on it. Plus it has a mini-SD slot. So for me what it comes down to is that I'd be paying $130 for a glorified mp3 player. XDDD Eh, not worth it.

☁ Also I found out rather unpleasantly last night that I'm apparently incapable of just sitting and watching a movie now. I -still- find myself stopping it all the time to do other things. Guh. It took me five hours to watch the Percy Jackson movie last night. Well, in all fairness about four to four and a half, really, because I had my mother talking at me for FOREVER in the middle of it.

Alright, enough of that. I'm sleepy, so I think I'll take a nap (or not, my sister called right after I posted this, go figure) and then read some. Later \o

Public Service Announcement: My internet connection has been really spotty off and on the last few days. Which really BLOWS, because I never know when it's going to drop. Well, that and aim doesn't seem to sign me off till an extended time after it goes. So if anybody tries to message me on AIM when it says I'm on and I don't respond after about ten minutes, please try to poke me again. It's one of two scenarios, one of which is normal, one is not. XD 1- I'm getting food/in the bathroom/on the phone/got distracted by something shiny; 2- My god damn internet is out again, and I will be back when I can.

The rest is put under a cut to save everyone's flists. It's mostly boring. Trust me. )

1. Oh. Guys. I sent out Christmas cards on Wednesday. I'm almost positive I got everyone who asked for one, but if in a few weeks you still don't have it, let me know, okay? ^_^;;;

2. Neeeeed to finish this RP application. *sigh* I don't have the motivation right now. And really, I just have two samples to write, I think. Might be able to do it at work. Maybe. Depends on how busy it is.

3. Also need to go down to the main office. Like, before work. Ugh. Don't want to, but at the same time, that way I can make sure I get my anime. I've read before that you can have stuff sent to the main office if you think you're not going to be home for a package, and they'll sign for it and hold it for you. I just need to double check that it's true, not to mention get an address. I can always do it tomorrow, though, but tomorrow's the last day... *obviously procrastinating*

4. I'm on the other computer right now, which means no sound, but it also means that there's no random restarts and photoshop. I should probably try and get some stuff done in photoshop while this is still plugged in and everything. Things I've been meaning to do. Oh, yeah, and organizing my external drive because it needs it, badly, and this computer actually RECOGNIZES it without any fuss. Speaking of which, I totally need more space. :3

5. Complete crack: Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Stef made me watch this the other day and it was just... brilliant. Fucking brilliant. Also insane, but whatever.

Meep. I need to go do stuff. Later!

1. New cell phone is here as of yesterday~! And I'm in love with it already. So much cool stuff- and yeah, okay, the full keyboard is going to take some getting used to, but once I do, texting is going to go so much faster. Now I just need to figure out if/what I'm going to name it. ^_^;;;;;;

2. Started watching Zombie-Loan. It's very interesting- and short, so I can finish it quickly. ^_^ I kept thinking the one character sounded familiar, so I looked up his seiyuu... he does A LOT of voices! Isumi in Hikaru no Go, Seiji in Sensitive Pornograph, Hikaru in Ouran.... and there was more that I took note of, too. Quite a bit of BL. I'm still shocked. It -never- occurred to me that the seiyuu for Isumi and Seiji were the same! XD Fail, Ver. I fire myself. XD

3. I did absolutely nothing yesterday. Well... okay, I watched four episodes of Zombie-Loan, but that doesn't really count as anything productive. Today? I should REALLY clean off my desk at the very least, it's disgusting. And ihikago, dammit. *kicks self* I have to get those done either tonight or tomorrow to abide by my self imposed deadline- I won't be home Friday/Saturday. *sigh* I'm going over to my sister's friday night, and then we're going to a concert/fest thing on Saturday. We're also supposed to be going out on Saturday night, since Marc is supposed to be visiting for all of this, and then I'll probably get dropped off at work on Sunday. So in case I don't make another post before then: I won't be around all of this weekend till Sunday night. ^_^;;;;

4. Personality types are confusing. I usually test as either ISTJ or INTJ (depends on my mood or something, apparently), but I was reading the description for INTP and that one made sense to me as well? *sigh* Oh well.

I really should get going if I'm going to get things done today. Though I'm still feeling sleepy and I don't really feel like it. Meh.

**EDIT** I just found out that I'm horrifically bad at Resident Evil. *sigh* I should've expected that, really. XD

**EDIT 2** More evidence I get the best ideas in the shower. I was in there just a little bit ago, getting all clean (I smell like apple now, yum~), and it came to me. Vivi. The name for my new phone. *hearts*

So, in the interest of keeping an up to date "owed list"...  Some of these are quite old- like, round 3 of [community profile] blind_go old. Some of them are also from the letter drabbles (of which I only managed to send out two of them, because I fail horribly XD). If you look at this list and notice I've forgotten something, please tell me! I tend to be forgetful at the best of times... ^_^;;;;;;

............yeah, the guessing post was definitely a big mistake this last round of bg. *headdesk*

Also, while I'm making lists... (feel free to ignore this, guys, honestly- this one is definitely solely for my own benefit)... upcoming due dates and whatnot!

In other news, I've decided to start watching Hikago again. One, because I feel like I've lost touch with certain characters a bit, and I'm hoping that rewatching canon will get me back where I should be (and prompt fic!)... another is, quite frankly, the fact that I want a Hikago mood theme. XDDDD I must therefore go through the series again and screencap everything! And. You know. It serves as very handy procrastination for........ *points above*

I just want to be writing again. *sigh* There just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.

(EDIT: Gah, you fail, HTML. I give up. No cuts or journal links or anything, they're having issues at the moment. >_<)

(EDIT 2: GAH. More issues. I just realized that LJ ate some of the owed list amongst the pissy fits it was having. *headdesks repeatedly* I thought that looked awfully short... XDDD)

I am happy to report that I spent some time writing yesterday (I know, shocker, right? XD) and the word count for [community profile] blind_go will not be a problem. I've also set a goal for myself this round, but we'll see how that goes, though as it stands, if I don't make that goal it's not a big deal. I'll just do it some other time, outside of [community profile] blind_go, that's all. ^_^

Since everyone else seems to be doing it, I've been reminded of my old Anime and Manga list. I still feel like I'm forgetting things on both, honestly... both lists are really quite pathetic, but the manga more so. I'm an anime girl, really. ^_^;;;;;

I've also been reminded of OkCupid... and that I actually have an account there. O_o I don't remember doing that, but apparently it was back in February. I didn't do a whole lot, it looks like, except fill out a little bit of a profile and take quizzes- so I strongly suspect I only made an account to keep track of my quiz results. XD I would totally do something like that.

And now that it's quarter after one and this is still completely pointless, I think I should go take a shower and then do something productive. Like editing for [profile] ihikago. Or writing. Either one would be good.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! ^_^

I really need to change the cat box and go to bed... you know, instead of playing around on the computer. The good news is that I recorded the first two parts of "One Thing"... which will need severe editing later, if not total re-recording, but whatever. I'm also trying really hard to resist the urge to go and remake all those icons I've been meaning to and haven't gotten around to yet. ^_^;;;; As it is, the current "Irish" one got a makeover... whoops? XD

In the meantime, I've posted the drabble that didn't make the cut for [profile] subrosa_tennis- in both the original Hikago version and the edited Tenipuri. Yes, they're both basically the same...  but they ARE different characters so of course it's a little bit different. I just figured... what the hell. I think the Hikago version is stronger, but hey, maybe that's just me. XD

Alright. Definitely need to get going. Ugh.

I have to get in the shower and I don't want to. Well... no, that's not quite accurate. I wouldn't mind getting in the shower if it was just a shower- as in, if I wasn't taking a shower so I could go to work. One must not be smelly for work. Meh. It's crappy out and I don't want to go. Crappy days make me tired. And right now it's just freezing rain, so there are still a bunch of people out and about. So I'll have to deal with people today. -_-

I was bored last night and randomly poking around the internet, and found some old videos I used to like. You guys may or may not have seen these already.

Fat Rant Part 2

I realized today that I've been horribly, horribly bad about reading. Honestly. I have all these unread (!) books on my shelves... I need to work on that. Next year. XD Maybe this year... when I stop procrastinating so much.

To Do:
1. Shower, ZOMG
2. Finish Christmas shopping
3. Laundry. Like, tonight. >O
4. Do up the damn certificates for work. Yes, I know it won't be exactly the same because you don't have one of the fonts, but put your anal retentive-ness aside and just DO IT.
5. Decorate the tree with Kelly, just to shut everyone up

Yeah. Um... definitely need to find clothes that are at least sort of clean and get in the shower. <_< Later guys.

The bad news: I'm still sick. Oh, and my little friend decided to visit as of Monday. The good news: I'm not as sick as I was, it's mostly down to a sore throat and a little coughing now. And the cramps are gone.

Regression to age 15 beginning...
Fall Out Boy concert in a little more than twelve hours! *squee* Kelly and I will both have cameras of the film (hers) and digital (mine) variety, so if I get any decent ones I'll probably put them up at some point. The best part about this? It turns out that Kevin and Jess are working the Pepsi for this (they work the booths, you know, where they sell all the insanely priced stuff)- and Jess said that if we find them, they can give us 50% off on whatever we want. Yay! Looks like we're going to have to make a point of finding them...
Returning to appropriate age...

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Besides, the more I'm squeeing about that, the more chance there is of my brain finally realizing that I'm quickly running out of time and to kick into gear. I have laundry to do (because I have no clothes whatsoever). I need a shower (because I smell, and I know it). I need to pack my purse with essentials for tomorrow (today, technically... I need to do this shortly because I know I'm going to forget something major, and this way I'm leaving myself enough time to rectify that. Otherwise I'll be kicking myself in the ass for days). I need to charge batteries for my camera, and get all my photography shit together. I need to get money out for possible momento buying (I'm limiting myself to $100, which is entirely too much, but I don't plan on spending all of it... and even if I do, I don't think I'll care as long as I go home with something really cool). I need to GO THE HELL TO BED at some point. That, of course, being on the bottom of the priority list ;)

As a complete change of subject (and to further my blatant procrastination)... a semi-entry I wrote yesterday:
Strange, how watching a movie can spur time travel in your brain. I'm sitting here watching The Last Unicorn, one of my favorite movies as a kid (which still has the most gorgeous soundtrack, by the way) and suddenly I'm eight years old again, sitting on the floor of my room in front of an ancient black and white 13 inch tv. And it feels so damn real, like I'm ACTUALLY sitting there. Extremely weird.

Is it just me, or are Mommy Fortuna and the harpy bits just a little bit too scary for kids to be watching?

On a fun note, this is a bootlegged copy of the movie when fox aired it some weekend along with Pretty Piggies and Yogi's First Christmas (it was some marathon or something)... the commercials are just so entertaining. Just to give you an idea on the dating of this recording: The Pepsi Arena was still the Knickerbocker Arena. There are previews for "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", "ALF", "Perfect Strangers", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", and "The Gambler: The Adventure Continues". The Long John Silver commercial with the holiday stemware was running (I used to love that one), and of course, the "I'm Sorry" Bounty commercials. *LMAO* Kelly and I used to sing that one to each other when one of us got the other pissed, which was often.

Random Quotes from the Movie:
-"There are no happy endings because nothing ends."
-"Oh my god, I'm engaged to a Douglas Fir."
-"Do something!"
"What can I do, you think the Red Bull likes card tricks?"
-"I am a bearer, I am a dwelling, I am a messenger-"
"You are an idiot!"
Alright, I'm off to maybe do some of those things I need to do. *ugh* I'll hopefully be back Thursday/Friday with news of the concert and pictures, as I won't be able to get on the computer Wednesday. Later!

Best line of the day: "Focus on one thing? One artistic goal? As. in. concentrate. for. more. than. 20. sec- oh look, a shiny thing. *wanders off* (From Chershirecaticus on DeviantArt)
