So working at a camp is.... an adventure and a half, shall we say. It's a lot of fun too, and I can genuinely say I like everyone I work with (not necessarily as co-workers but as people in general) and I love being able to work with the young women coming for the CIT program.

We just finished up "Magic and Mysteries" week, aka "Harry Potter" week and it was a blast! I got to play Snitch for the Quidditch Tournament and also play a staff game to keep the girls entertained while the scores were all being tallied up. It was all kinds of wet and muddy because it had rained just a few hours before so most of the kids were caked in mud. I actually managed to not slip and fall down in the mud but I did get hit by a couple of bludgers (which at that point were more mud-balls than foam) so I threw my shirt in with my girls' shirts for a quick wash. I definitely want to look into joining the Quidditch team at my school this next semester. So much fun. 'My' unit (I'm assigned to a unit for the week because I'm not actually in one) won the second task which involved making a boat out of random objects, taking it across the lake and completing challenges along the way, 'rescuing' another counselor and then bringing everything back across the lake. It was a lot of fun to watch and cheer for and my unit won that challenge. Then there was the Horcrux hunt, which is a challenge/scavenger hunt. I wasn't involved because I had to get sleep so I could drive for the day camp group the next morning but apparently it was pretty awesome too. It was honestly a lot of fun, especially dressing up as 'Hawkeye Moody' for parts of one day.

I think the only thing I would want to change is some of the Admin decisions. Especially the way some of my co-workers are being treated. I'm not going to go into that now because it'll just make me angry again.

Sooooo.... I claimed a prompt?  For the After Holidays Prompt Fest on [livejournal.com profile] stevedannoslash .  I am a glutton for punishment, considering I'm already writing 2 other H50 fics, one of which is Cliche!fic, and the other is some kind of monstrosity that is taking over my brain, A Losers Jensen/Cougar fic, and, probably oddest of all, a Virgil(Static)/Richie(Gear) fluff piece(from the kids' cartoon "Static Shock") for a friend's birthday over on DeviantArt.  

WHAT AM I THINKING!!  I'm a college student with little enough time for myself as it is, what with classes and homework and hanging out and clubs.  And if those aren't enough, there's at least four other stories rattling around, and various fandom muses I've picked up and aren't even giving me anything useful.  **pouts**  I'm just never going to sleep again.  Ever.  My life is nuts.

I've been sick all week, and this week is homecoming week.  Which means, the marching band has been working really hard at practices, but because I basically can't breathe, I couldn't play or march.  Fuck.  So we had a performance tonight.  Kinda informal, no uniforms or anything, but a performance.  I couldn't play.  Because I currently can't breathe right.  And I talked to the band director earlier tonight, and basically, I'm at the point where I'm in danger of losing my place in the band.  Because I missed the first game, and I might miss tomorrows game, and if I miss one more..... well, it sucks.  And I want to scream and rage and punch things and cry and generally go batshit, but I can't because I have no voice and my life sucks.  Someone tell me I'm being irrational and whiny, because I need someone to knock some sense into me.  Real bad.

I swear, the next time that fucking song starts running through my head, I'm going to run my head through the fucking wall. Just to make the damned thing stop playing in me head. It's a shitty song too. And I want it out of my head permanently, but it won't ever be out of my head, because I've got a friggin' musical brain. Which means I can hear a song once and remember a good portion of the melody, having disected it from the counter-melody, harmony, counter-harmony, back-beat, continuing parts, etc, etc. After 3 or 4 listenings, I can sing quite a few of the lyrics, and it will be permanently in my head. So that shitty music video is now officially stuck in my head, because I'm not quite fast enough with the mute button. And the girl singing it looks like a slut. And the song is slutty too, which I might have been able to handle if it wasn't so fucking blatant, but they don't even try to hide the fact that the song is about sex. At least "I Can See For Miles" and "Pictures of Lily" are subtle. And the music isn't even all that original or complex. It's the same damn notes and rhythms over and over again. Probably the simplest song I've hear in a while. And simple isn't necessarily bad. Simple can be very pretty or fun. But this fucking song is neither pretty or fun. It's Goddamned annoying as shit. And the singer tries to look cutesy, but she only succeds in looking like a slut. A ridiculous slut too. The video is shit. The music is shit. The lyrics are shit. The singer is shit. The whole thing is shitty.

**takes a deep breath** Ok, I think I'm done ranting. I just really needed to get that out.

Goddamnit.  When the hell did I get bit by fifty bajillion bugs?  And all down one arm and the backs of both legs too.  Driving me batshit crazy and up the fucking wall.  And parts of my back too.  I need either hydrocortizone cream, or benadryl spray, or anti-itch stick, before I shred my skin scratching.  Argh!

OK, sorry for the half-insane rant, and this may seem out of the blue, but I'm fed up with people who are fanatical about just ONE pairing, and I'm seriously pissed off at the moment.  Not to mention I'm up at  an ungodly hour writing this, and therefore have very little control over what I say, which means I'm more likely to just say exactly what I think, rather than sitting idly by and fuming inwardly.  So, here goes.

 

Just to keep things manageable )


There.  Ranting done.  I'm feeling quite a bit better.

Crap.  Crapcrapcrap.  I hate fasting.  Stupid blood-work.  I haven't eaten since,  11:30 last night, and it's now 10 the next day.  I'm hungry, and that makes me irritable.   ...... I can't even drink anything.

Now that I've had my rant... I've definitely been watching too much CSI and CSI: NY lately.  I've been thinking in the character's voices.  It's about to drive me batshit crazy.  I mean, really, I have got to stop obsessively watching reruns on Spike.  I've got two perfectly good seasons on DVD. .... Not that I didn't initially polish those off in the week after I got each.

But definitely too much NY.  Danny and Don have set up residence in my head, and are either happily bickering with one of my own characters and corrupting them, or simply bickering with themselves.  Or me.  And occasionally they bring Adam around, and he gets nervous and starts babbling.

Oh and I've got to pack today so I can move into my dorm on Sunday.  I'm about to go out of my brain, and I still have other stuff to do before I can get that done.

I'm clearly quite stressed.
