Life is good. I'm in Wisconsin visiting [livejournal.com profile] animus_wyrmis with [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil and [livejournal.com profile] gold_bluepoint. There was, of course, a Carry on my Wayward Son singalong on the roadtrip up. 8) Midterms went super well; I can't believe it's already seventh week. And Supernatural and soccer are delighting me.

ETA: And I just found Balkan Folklore hiding under the anthro section. ;_;

Thank you to everyone who gave me birthday wishes here, on facebook, or in real life. In particular, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] twivamp92, [livejournal.com profile] cacklesthewitch, and [livejournal.com profile] giantlovetingle for the vgifts. And huge huge huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] familiardevil for being the best, most wonderful person to ever exist.

Today was pretty low-key as birthdays go. My friends baked me a cake last night, and I was given some really wonderful tea and a tea mug. My parents bought me a roundtrip to Florida SO I CAN GO VISIT [livejournal.com profile] familiardevil FOR THE WEEK BETWEEN FINALS AND MY INTERNSHIP STARTING. I've known about this for like a week and a halfish, but it was technically my birthday present. I bought myself a ticket to a soccer game in late June as a birthday present to myself, and I got a lot of hugs. But other than that, pretty much a normal day. (:

Oh, except housing lottery was today. So I know my living situation for next year. For various reasons, I'll be living with three complete strangers. I guess if you're going to play with fate, your birthday's the day to do it on.

Nineteen was a pretty solid year, overall. Finished my first year at college and started my second, jumped into Lake Michigan while drunk during a thunderstorm, traveled across country by train, spent what will probably be my last summer at home, made the Dean's List, returned as a counselor to Girls State, got really into soccer, gave up all my fandom modding duties, was lj_married (and facebook married!) to familiar, started making mixes, went to Wincon, made irl fannish friends, saw familiar irl TWICE, got a really cool part time job, saw three soccer games, went to a lot of plays, declared my major (religious studies!), came out to my mom and a few other people, saw President Obama speak twice, saw Neil Gaiman speak, started learning French, was appointed to a local housing board, was accepted into a great summer internship, was accepted into a study abroad program, won a student leader award, started organizing a big art festival, did a ton of other cool shit like protests and paintballing and the imax Harry Potter and going to talks and getting out the vote and volunteering and and and. Also, I broke one and a half laptops, one and half iPods, and one printer. (Though really, the printer technically broke itself). It really doesn't seem like an entire year has passed.

For twenty, I want to travel more, take better care of myself physically, get another part time job, and start being more active in fandom again.

Man, twenty is such a grown-up sounding number. I can't believe my mom was married by the time she was my age.

Hope you all are doing wonderfully. <3

ps made an Anna/Castiel mix the other day. It can be found here.

First things first, in the immortal battle between fandom and LJ, our cruel reptilian overlords have now included a "repost to twitter or facebook" option for all our comments. Not cool LJ!

So I'm signal boosting a work around to that problem: HERE BBs HERE. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1 and [livejournal.com profile] sigrundora for the heads up.

I still have a question though. )

In good news, two things:

1) I bought tickets for a soccer game! US vs. Poland on October 9th. Omg you guys I am so excited. I'm also broke, so, you know. That's good life choices for you. BUT OMG I WILL GET TO SEE SOME OF MY BBs PLAY IN REAL LIFE. OMG. And I got pretty good seats too despite picking the second cheapest option. Probably because I bought tickets the day after they went on sale. I'm in the ninth row in section 103.

2) My dad will probably-most likely-keep your fingers crossed for me, come to Chicago the weekend before Thanksgiving for work. Which means I will get to see him! And probably mooch dinner off of him. But mostly I am excited about getting to see someone in my family that close to the holidays.

3) One of my college friends sent me sugar cookies. :D YAY!

Now, because it did promise a cycle of never ending icon squee, have the icon meme. Again:

meme time )

I hope you're all well. ♥

I made the Dean's List! :D

Of course, getting the letter this morning meant my parents wanted to see my grades, so, I, uh finally looked up my grades from last quarter! And I'm kind of shocked, guys. I should not have done that well during a quarter where I spent an entire month depressed, broke down on one of my professors, and turned in a paper three weeks late. (None of these things having to do with school-related stress, just a general feeling of omg why is everything in the world awful, particularly me? ;_; )

Still. There is room for improvement. This was a lazy year. So! Next year:

1) Get even better grades
2) Get involved in more student activities
3) Get a job
4) Learn how to operate without sleep.

Oh, and Duke University wants a sample of my DNA. Cool beans. 

(And now my parents are proud of me. OMGYAY EXTERNAL VALIDATION FROM FIGURES OF AUTHORITY.)

I was going to write a long post, but instead I will simply say: I am done. Finals are finished. I am mostly packed. Good-byes are wrapping up. I have had three and some change hours of sleep the last two nights, but dear  god. I am done.

So now I'm going to watch the Korea vs. Greece match, finish packing, and then it's off to the train station and home.

I won't be around at all the next two days, since I'll be on the train, so if I don't respond to a comment, it's not because I don't like you.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. ♥

What the hell, self? I just realized I wrote the word "Marxian" instead of "Marxist" in my essay. How one presents a Marxian critique, I don't really know. But I assume it has to do with communist Martians.

Possibly this is a sign I've been up too long. But I have hammered out two rough drafts today! Yay! That means I have to pretty those two up, study for my only actual test, and write the last and longest of the essays. The fourth essay has already been turned in, and I aced my presentation on Tuesday. :D

So I may survive finals after all! Even though my laptop has broken. Again. 

This broken laptop thing is swiftly becoming a finals tradition.

But I shall just camp out in the study lounge and use the computers there. Oh yes, I will. 

***

I woke up yesterday morning, saw that it was raining pretty hard, muttered, "Why does God hate me?" and then rolled over and fell back asleep for a few hours. 

I'm not sure why that was my reaction, but then, you know, my laptop, so maybe there was something to my question after all.

My working theory is that s/he/it is just jealous of my pretty, pretty hair. 

***

The Art Festival what I've been helping to put together since January went spectacularly. I feel like I mentioned this in my drunk post. I feel like it bears repeating. Why are they putting me in charge of it next year?

***

I head home Saturday. I WILL BE DONE WITH MY FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE HOLY CRAP. I'm taking the train home though, so that's exciting. 50 hour cross country train trip! EEEE! I will resemble a smelly hobo by the end, no doubt. 


***

I was going to linkspam with stuff I've been using to distract myself from finals with, but I'm too tired/lazy. So have my love instead.  ♥ ♥ ♥

***

[livejournal.com profile] gold_bluepoint , [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil  if either of you see this, we should meet up on Thursday or Friday (or whenever you have time) and watch Supernatural or just drink tea or something together. Y/Y? I hope you're both surviving finals well. 

ETA: I just realized my professor has the due date for the essay as June 7, 2006. Ah, well. A bit late, then? Damn.

Tonight, I ran through the streets of Chicago barefoot, while drunk, in a thunderstorm to jump into Lake Michigan.

It would be a better story if I jumped naked into Lake Michigan. But then, I feel like most stories are better stories if they happen while naked.

Oh yeah, I totally just aced that job interview. While naked.

The lake jumping was, of course, after the dancing in a thunderstorm on a porch to Britney Spears part of the evening.

Still, I don't think jumping into a lake during a thunderstorm while drunk is the stupidest thing I've done. But I admit it's pretty stupid.

It's also pretty awesome. \o/

Mostly just drunken rambling, really. )
coyotesuspect: (dean: headache)
Professor: I watched a man drown once.
Entire class: D: 
Professor: *chuckles as if reminiscing fondly*
Entire class: *jerks away from professor*
Professor: I don't know why I chuckled at that.
Entire class: . . .
Professor: *chuckles again*

Mmm. School. Speaking of, guess what I'm not doing right now? That's right. School. Since yesterday I've written something like 5000 words of ridiculous J2 AU which is not any of the essays or fannish obligations I should be writing.

And, I'm just. I'm almost done. Maybe 1000 to another 2000 words, and it's been so long since I've actually written anything, let alone finished anything (hello oddly productive winter quarter!). That I don't even want to sleep, even though it actually hurts to look at my screen right now and I'll be incredibly busy the next two days because of the Art Festival.

So I'm breaking my hiatus to whine at you about my poor life decisions. Which are poor.

And I still can't write porn. Goddammit.

ETA: Have a poem:

The Blue Boat

How late the daylight edges
toward the northern night
as though journeying
in a blue boat, gilded in mussel shell

with, slung from its mast, a lantern
like our old idea of the soul

-Kathleen Jamie

Survived finals! Which means I am now two-thirds of the way through my first year of college. Amazing!

It also means I'm officially on hiatus. I'm off to the Grand Canyon, and I should be back sometime the night of Saturday, the 27th.

I love you and I'll miss you all.

Be good.

♥ ♥ ♥

You know what's difficult?

Remixing your own fic. I have no idea what bits of dialogue I should keep, if any.

You know what's even more difficult?

Writing this damn humanities paper that is due in five hours.

Fuck me fuck me fuck me fuck me.

In other news, I know who I'm voting for in 2012.



ETA: obligatory mention of [livejournal.com profile] spn_fs_exchange sign ups, vagina, etc, etc, you know you want to.

Basically, Sam Winchester is my favorite person ever.
Like, more than Rahm Emanuel or Queen Elizabeth 1, he's my favorite person.

The only person who's more of a Sam!girl than me, is Dean. )

Oh, and if anyone is interested, I still have one space open for drabble writing. So if you want me to write you a drabble (more of a ficlet, really, I'll be honest), just amble over to my previous post.

Those who already requested a drabble, you'll get them when I'm done with them and be grateful for it, dammit sometime this week.

IRL: I went to Target today, by myself. Which does not sound like that big of a deal, except this is the first time I've been a significant ways off campus without someone, and I figured out the public transportation on my own and everything. :D! *pins badge to chest* I ended up spending too much money. Most of it was necessary (like the pants I bought; all of the sudden all my pants were too large. Apparently I lost the freshman fifteen instead of gaining them?), but I also got a red peacoat WHICH I DIDNT NEED. But which I have already received several compliments on today. So.

Now I think I'll clean my room some and then go to Tea. (We have tea here every Friday; it's awesome.) Then it's Haunted House, kill a couple hours, swing dancing, bed, SPN mini-marathon, schoolwork, House party, Halloween party in city, questionable activities of questionable legality, bed, schoolwork, White Castle adventure, schoolwork. And that's my weekend plans in a nutshell. (Note: schoolwork also means, "Write fic and goof around on lj while pretending to do schoolwork.")

There were some other things I wanted to discuss, but they're more Serious and this has gone on long enough. So I'll end by asking you, "What's your favorite Halloween tradition? What Halloween tradition would you like to start?"

Have a good weekend, and a safe and happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate.
