whogeek: Hatter grinning (Just a little Mad)

So, it has been brought to my attention that I should probably post about what's been going on in my life recently.

In the past couple weeks I finished out the semester and moved back home(3 A's, 3 C's).  Now I've been looking for a job for the summer, and having.... moderate luck?  I guess.  Well, I'm trying to find something to do over the summer, because otherwise I'll end up selling knives again, which wasn't so awesome the first time around.  But, I've had one interview today, and I've turned in several other applications at various places, so, hoping one of those works out! :D

But, anyways.... muses are kinda quiet at the moment, which is good, because I'm trying to write up my resume, which is slightly confusing and mostly annoying.

I do have several plot bunnies in my plot-bunny-hutch(yes, I had to make a hutch for them all, they were getting out of control).  So, hopefully I can get to writing some of those after I've got a job pinned down and a more stable schedule.  And hopefully my dad will get a car shortly there-after, and I'll get to use the Van.  :)

So, it is 3 something in the morning, and I'm still awake.  Fuck insomnia.  At this point, I think I'm just insane.  Which, entirely possible.  Also, I don't think I've ever written as much fanfic as I have in the last few weeks.  It seems I've found my home fandom in Hawaii Five-0.  And apparently, watching SGA and having insomnia makes my brain come up with weird fic ideas.  Involving a, gasp, horrors! self-insert of myself as, oddly enough(or maybe not oddly, but just, well, not my actual field of study) a botanist with the gene who has bouts of insomnia.  Which, kinda weird, but not.  I did consider horticulture.  But anyways.  Despite all the fandoms I've gotten into(and out of) and written for, Hawaii Five-0 has definitely kicked it into high gear.

Also, according to [livejournal.com profile] shanachie_quill , I am Joe Flanigan.  Only, shorter, stockier, with lighter hair and internal reproduction.  I kept complaining about my cowlicks being itchy, and explained that I have seven of them on my head, and if I cut it really ridiculously short, it would do pretty much the same thing that his does.  And occasionally, they make my scalp itch whenever I touch them.

I love my family, but I really do need my own time.  Sitting in a hotel room with mom, dad, and my older sister.  >.<  I just.  I love them, but I can really only take so much family time now.  **deep sigh**

On the plus side, my cousin is getting married tomorrow, and the weather is supposed to be much better.  :D

Also, I think I might be coming down with a cold, because I was up until 3 and out in the cold and the damp(it was drizzling) putting a TARDIS on the wall of the free expression tunnel of the college near my house.  Totally worth it, considering we made it life size(10'3").

Was bored, and biked down to blockbuster, and was mostly just wandering around looking at movies, kinda sorta trying to find Mirrormask(I didn't, btw), but I did find Tin Man.  So I rented the first "Volume" which is, basically, the first two parts.  And I adore Glitch.  So much. This is Glitch.  And DG, who is also pretty awesome.  But as much as I love Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cummings as Glitch just makes this so much better.  He's only got half a brain, and he has a zipper in his head from "having his marbles stolen" from him, and he tends to repeat himself, forget things/names/places, and is kinda ditzy, but so awesome.  I'm going to make a "Ha Ha!" icon with this picture.  :D  Also, I can't decide whether to ship Glitch/Cain, or Glitch/DG, because Glitch/Cain would be hilarious and kinda adorable, but Glitch/DG is really just adorable(and maybe slightly creepy, considering he was her mother's advisor, and is therefore lots older than her), and would generally be pretty kick-ass.

Also, he's pretty awesome in a fight.

The guy with the hat is Cain.

And it's just generally awesome because it's kinda a steampunk version of The Wizard Of Oz only, so much better than just a steampunk version of The Wizard Of Oz.

That is all.

whogeek: lions and tigers and bears button (Run Away!!)
Every so often, I get this restless feeling.  It's like an itch, deep under my skin, down in my bones.  And I can stave it off, at least for a little while, and when it gets too bad I can usually work it out by doing some exploring, but that's not what the itch is about.  There's only a handful of times that I actually managed to satisfy the itch, giving in and scratching it as hard as I can.  But aside from those few times it's always there, building quietly, until it's singing under my skin.  So I explore, walk around campus, or up to wander the shops downtown, but it's never quite enough.  It's this need to fight, to pit my strength against someone else.  All muscle and movement and god, it makes me feel so alive when I can let that part of me out just a little.  Because I know what can happen if I don't.  And I don't like losing time to the beast inside myself, the more primal, possessive, protective version of myself.  Because she's fierce, and reckless, and dangerous, and she doesn't know when to stop.  And god, the first time she burst through scared me so much, because I lost control, and I barely stopped her from doing anything, and that was only because my friends stopped me.  And sometimes she prowls so close under the surface I don't feel like I can touch anyone without putting them in danger.  Because if she breaks free, I don't think I could stop her, when it takes so much to contain her, to satisfy her need to fight.

And it's getting harder and harder.  I can't hold her back nearly as well as I used to, and I'm lucky she seems to genuinely like some people, but she doesn't like my roommate.  And that worries me.  Because I'm having to go to classes, and do homework, and go to football games with marching band, and fight to keep her in line, and I'm exhausted.  And I'm worried that my roommate will say or do something, and I'll snap and yell and shout at her, because the beast thinks she's utterly selfish and inconsiderate.  And she liked my roomie from last semester.  She always makes the happy, contented cat like noises around my previous roomie.  And I don't get this bad when I spend a lot of time being extremely physically active, or if I'm around the people the beast likes a lot.  Which is kind of disconcerting.

And I think, if I had grown up just a little differently, I might have been something like a berserker.  Which is scary as fuck.
whogeek: Hatter grinning (Just a little Mad)
But first, a bit of freaking out.  Because tomorrow is the first football game, and because I'm in the marching band, I have to be up at the stadium at 9 for run-through, and I won't be done until after 7.  And I do not feel ready at all, partly because it is 9/11, and partly because I've been sick basically all week, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better.  Fuck.

So, anyways.  Last weekend was kinda crazy.  Went home for the long weekend, YAY for having Monday off!  Which was, honestly, probably more stressful than it should have been.  Yeah.  But, I did get to go to a party with some friends (my best friend from high school's boyfriends 21st b-day party) and watched most everyone there get drunk, or at least buzzed/tipsy.  Although, the boyfriend did end up on the floor at one point, because "It's cooler than the sofa."  Honestly, he pretty much slid/rolled off the sofa, and was to uncoordinated to get up.  So that was pretty fun.  Then I went to see "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" with neighbors and mom, and we were quite pleased with the geek factor of it.  We were all quite baffled that it got such bad reviews.  It was supposed to be action/comedy, and it was.  You just needed to be pretty geeky to get a lot of the comedy.  Oh, and the shirt Dave (the protagonist) was wearing in the last bit?  This one.  Awesome.  I kinda yanked on my mom's arm and whispered urgently at her, and she totally missed what I was saying.... Both times.  XD  I'm really kind of annoyed that the reviewers didn't like it, because it's physics geek (who, honestly, isn't all that great looking and has a kinda funny voice) gets music geek, plus age-old romance finally fufilled.  And Tesla coils.  Lots of Tesla coils.  And awesome special effects.  :D  Geek heaven.  Especially some of the comic bits.  I seriously think all geeks should see it.  I want to own it.  :D

Anyways.  long day tomorrow, presuming I'm not dead from mega-cold.
whogeek: The WhoGeek w/ blue/white/red target (Default)
 So [livejournal.com profile] brilligspoons posted this earlier, and I was bored and decided to see what it spat out for me.  Started with some of my story bits and got  H.P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov, Chuck Palahniuk, and James Joyce.  Decided to crank one of my poems through and got Vladimir Nabokov.  A different poem got Stephen King..... What?  A third poem came up as James Joyce.  I don't think the thing is smart enough to recognize poetry when it gets it.  I wonder if they have one specifically for poetry?

This is my result for a story I might actually post on here that'll be longer than a one-shot/drabble.

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Also, my local paper has this wonderword thing it does on Sundays, and this week it's all CSI stuff!!  I was really really psyched about that.

Also, I really, really, really can't wait to go back to school.  I love my parents.  I really do, but they get on my last nerves, because they pick at each other so much.  And I miss the mountains so damn much.  I hate this heat, because it's so freaking oppressive.  I mean, you go outside and I swear you get wet just walking.  And not just from sweat.  The mountains tend to be about twenty degrees cooler, and when it rains it actually helps the heat index, rather than making it worse.  I can handle heat.  I have no real problem with heat.  I was always one of the people closest to the fire (aka the one holding a stick and poking it) at camp and such.  But this wet heat absolutely kills me.
whogeek: (Happy Cuteness)
I have a bunch of new shirts, including a polo, something I've never owned before, 3 tank tops, and a dark grey tee with black velour designs on the front and back.  I especially love the back, because it has a pair of wings, and they are gorgeous!  Love it!!  Also, I've discovered the awesomeness of guys' cargo shorts.  Awesomely comfy, and something I won't shred in a few months!  I have a tendency to be very hard on my clothes.  :D


I was gonna post that before now, but I haven't really had the chance.  Kinda strange, but also geekishly awesome.

Oh, and I'm bored out of my freaking skull.  Because I got used to being essentially autonomous at school.  And being able to walk up to King St and wander around the shops.  Which was always fun.  And there was usually something to do on campus. Aside from cleaning. Which gets old pretty damn fast. I have been doing quite a bit of writing. When I get the chance and when I have the inspiration, which isn't always at the same time. But I have several stories started, and I'm planning on getting pretty far in before I start posting. so [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_angel should not expect me to be posting any of my CSI story in her We Don't Die universe anytime soon.  It'll be a while.

I hate looking for a job.  Hate it.  And all the stupid applications want you to list your previous employment, which I don't have.  And some of the online ones won't take any applications unless you put something down for previous employment.  Fuck.....  Although, I might have a dog-walking job for a while.  A rottie, apparently, but I forgot to talk to the person about it earlier, and so I'll have to call at some point to get the information and such.
whogeek: The WhoGeek w/ blue/white/red target (Default)
So, I was bored, and I decided that I wanted to change my journal style.  So I did.  I think I rather like it.  It's very green.  It makes me happy.

It just occured to me the most likely reasons that I fail on weekends.

1)  I don't use my alarm clock, so I don't wake up at a "reasonable" hour.
2)  I don't take my meds, which probably helps to throw off my sleep schedule.
3)  I don't have people who will come and drag my lazy ass out of bed to actually go do stuff outside of my room.

So that's basically it.  I need to find people who will forcibly drag me out of bed to go do things on weekend mornings, even if it does include church on Sundays, because if I do stuff in the mornings I'm more likely to do stuff in the afternoons, and then I'll probably even do stuff in the evenings!
whogeek: The WhoGeek w/ blue/white/red target (Default)
Classes started today.  Aparently I've got the wrong textbook for one class, so I've got to go make that switch later today, I can't remember where I put my meds, so I'm having some trouble focusing, which isn't too bad today, as it's mostly "here's the syllabus, write/tell me something about yourself" kinda stuff.  Will have to search for it later.

Also, I've started watching the "It's the Rage" trailer again, because the dance still makes me giggle madly.

Edit: And on an entirely separate note, I blame [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_angel for turning me into a Michael/Victor fangirl.  Goddamnit woman!  You must stop introducing me to new fandoms!  You're driving me up the nearest fucking wall!

Edit 2: Aparently, my meds make my stomach unhappy if I haven't taken them for a while.  So I'm lying on my stomach on my bed, watching Dirty Jobs.  And not wanting a damn thing for dinner.

No. Death is simply a part of life, and once a person comes to terms with that, they can live life to it's very fullest, rather than putting it off for another day, another time when they're in a better situation to go do whatever. So, in other words, to quote two movies: "Death is just a part of living." And: "To die shall be a great adventure."

Also, my life is very sad. Especially on a Saturday... I keep watching the trailer for "It's the Rage" on IMDb just to see Gary Sinise dance like that. It has not yet failed to make me laugh.
