Things happening now:

- Getting Better about my relationship with Her. This is a good thing.
- Applying for a summer research grant to study Literature and Things. (specifically a media archaeology project on eighteenth-century periodical literature and today's blogging culture)
- Working slowly on original story for my workshop class, run by an actual published poet guy who is very intimidating. Waffling continuously between extreme pride and extreme self-loathing.
- Still trucking in RP. Playing Juudai and now Itachi at Kannagara.
- Naruto continues to break my heart.
- Not much free time for shows and things, but I watched Under the Red Hood for an RP buddy and have been dipping my toes into the ocean of American Comics. Also, trying to find time to watch Mawaru Penguindrum, as well as keep up with Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (magnificent crack there).

I keep forgetting I have a personal DW. |D

Okay, you guys, I have been like mentally AWOL from everything lately. In fandom, I have done nothing but marathon Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and post about it on Plurk (I was going to try to keep up the crossposting, but the sheer amount of obnoxious copypasta would have killed me dead). And I mean "marathon" - I watched about 105 episodes in... three weeks, I think. And I'm still going. I might make an LJ entry about the first two seasons, boiling the show down to its essential points for your amusement. You would be surprised how many of those points involve talking space dolphins.

In RL news, I've finally admitted that what I thought I wanted to do with my life, I didn't really want to do, or do in exactly the way I thought I was going to do it, so now I am sending emails and making Decisions and things of that nature. These things are the real reason I have been so emo/avoidant lately, so with them cleared up, I should be out and about on this journal more.

I love you guyssssssss ;3;
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξcg | when I offer you survival)
So, back at school now. Trying to obtain some of my older course books for free on the internet (i.e. Communist Manifesto, Nietzsche, etc) so I don't have to pay too much. Ahahah, that's a pipe dream, isn't it? anyway.

I don't really think I've been doing things interesting enough to warrant LJing about them (the most interesting things are also things I don't really want on the Internet in public places, if you follow me). Mostly whining IRL about going back to Offset for two weeks - I needed the money, but not the emotional painnnnnnn. Happy to be back with my friends, less happy to be back with Taylor Swift (aka third suitemate, if you were following my drama back in October and November).

RPing like a mad thing. I keep apping new characters. I may grow to hate myself - lol oh wait. No, seriously, RP is the only thing that keeps me sane nowadays.

Mostly, I've just been hiding my face from the looming specter of ADULTHOOOOOD. I have many important things to do this semester which will help pave the way for my future etc. etc. etc. Also I have to find an internship for the summer or I will kill myself. Also also I'm going to Japan in September holy shit I don't think I am ready aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. SO yeah. Much emoing.

Oh, and my roommate got me volume 53 of Naruto in the original Japanese for Christmas. *___* it's the one with BABY SASUKE AND CHIBITACHI AAAAAAH.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξfilm | you sir are a fool)
URGH I HATE SCHOLARSHIP ESSAYS. I THOUGHT I WAS DONE WITH THIS WHEN I GOT INTO COLLEGE. Oh who am I kidding, this kind of shit never quits until you die, these days.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξfilm | you sir are a fool)
urrrrrgh trying to fill out this application for an overseas language program scholarship (because like hell I am going to work at Offset again this coming summer) and PAPERWORK IS THE MOST OBNOXIOUS THING. They accept online unofficial transcripts c/p'd into a Word document, but my Office of the Registrar doesn't do online transcripts, everything must have a physical signature, and waaah waaaah waaah this is the most stupid thing. It would take like three minutes to do this via computer BUT NOOOOOOOO.

If I miss getting this paperwork in because of these kinds of things, I will tear large chunks of my hair out.

So of course I have been way too happy lately, so happy in fact that my body couldn't take its sheer force anymore and started breaking down on me somewhere around Friday night. I have this awful cold right now and it's making me tired, spacey, and miserable. Despite this, I am determined to be as happy as possible about all the great things that continue to happen to me. I obtained Cute Boy's cell number (>D), though I have yet to work up the nerve to call him and ask if he wants to study Japanese with me sometime (step on it, self! but not while sick, bad move).

My classes are going well, my friends make me insanely happy on a daily basis, chorus starts today, and I went to another Women's Studies Luncheon! Things are great, even when my sinus passages attempt to crash the party.

Bullet points!

~We (my roomies and I) went ROAD TRIPPIN' down to my house for the weekend because I wanted to show them the sheer boonie-ness of my area. We went to the county fair and I was amazed to find that the new big attraction is - wait for it - PIG RACES. I. AM. NOT MAKING THIS UP. My friends were totally amazed that my mom baked us a pie (blueberry/strawberry/peach if you were curious), and they spoiled my dog with a great deal of attention.

~I was going to do work today after we got back, but then I accidentally napped for three hours |D

~I have some FSTs I've been meaning to post; may do that sometime this month.

~I intend to do NaNoWriMo this year! ...Yep, just letting you know.

~gnnnnnh don't talk to me about Japanese X|
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξotomen | put your little hand in mine)
I love college. I love my friends. I love my room. I love my fridge. I love the bananas in my fridge. I love my bed. I love everything. I am absolutely overjoyed to be alive. If you cut me open, my veins would gush pure liquid joy.

elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξcg | you're a kitty!)
Freshman year is donnnnnnne.


elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξポケモン | and live in harmony harmony)

elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξstock | thwack ye mole)
+ I got the summer job I applied for at home! NINE BUCKS AN HOUR WOOT WOOT
+ I only have studying left to do before finals
+ I'm being enabled into playing Maya from Persona 2 at Kannagara, sob


- I slept in and missed Japanese this morning like a complete failure D|
- I thought I did really well on my last history test, but I didn't, so now I have to ace the final or I'm in deep shit :CCCCCCCC
- Need to start dieting again, but that will probably not happen until I get home because finals stress makes me eat :x

Hey, I outlined my essay today. It was something.

Speaking of dragons, I am about to go see How to Train Your Dragon, now that I got the movie time right. Oh, and my friend, who is reading over my shoulder, wants me to say hi. We're in a coffee shop. I feel so collegiate.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξff | the darkest side of me)
I have to start automatically calling RP hiatuses when I go home for periods of time shorter than a week. I never get on the computer when I'm spending limited amounts of time with my family. Especially around holidays.

Easter was nice. Especially nice when I evolved my Eevee into an Umbreon after three straight days of grinding, grooming, and pampering. rofl that's probably some sort of blasphemy or something.

HNNNNGH to-do list:

~Aphra Behn Paper: due April 9
~Human Voice Project: due April 21
~History test: April 21, for which I have to do nine long chapters of reading FML FML

I'm still better off than I was at this time last semester, though, so that is something to look at as an accomplishment :U

I'm also sooo behind in RP, |D. In XI, I just kind of hover around the fringe, but I think I have some tag left hanging from last week still. :/ feeling kind of bad about that, but I know I'm not going to do it tonight, my brain's not in the right shape. Maybe I should hiatus there for a week, get my head on straight.

I'd like to curl up under a rock and not come out until May 8, please. D|
elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξnno | have they stolen your thunder)
The fact that I do not own a DS is now completely galling me. I have SoulSilver just sitting on my desk in its case, begging to be played. I did sneak over to a friend's dorm last night and played it on her DS, but I left the DS in her room because I felt weird borrowing it for an extended period of time.

But it was worth it for the laugh I got once I reached Mahogany Town: cut for hilarious spoiler )

Been doing well in classes. I get my history midterm back tomorrow, which is the last thing for a while that has me ripping my hair out. But now I have to come up with a research topic this week for Human Voice. Have I mentioned how much I hate the scientific method? I hate it a lot.

On the plus side, I get to write a paper analyzing any poem I want from the sixteenth or seventeenth centuries! I'm torn between John Donne and one of the other metaphysical poets. I kind of like Herrick and Marvell, too. SO MANY WONDERFUL OPTIONS :DD this is why I am an English major *~~*

Midterms: over.

Writing center app: aaaaaah

Morale: Good so far. Ish. Mostly worried about getting that gd transcript in time, going to registrar around 6 --ohshi just checked and they closed at 4:30 fml. Maybe they will be able to copy my transcript quickly and easily tomorrow? shiiiiiiiit.


well at least I am going to a nice dinner with my floor tonight ^^

Also, I've decided to clean out my icons and redo them all! BUT that will be happening after this weekend because it will probably take several hours. HEADS-UP TO ANYONE WHO GETS EMAILS WHEN I CHANGE ICONS: BETTER UNDO THAT OR YOU WILL BE SWAMPED |D I only mention this because I know Jade does it.

Rejected from being an RA.

Also, I looked back at the guidelines for applying at the Writing Center, and I have to send in two essays as writing samples from two different classes. Problem: I can only send one essay from my Tragedies class, and I have only written two other papers for two other classes last semester, and they were both terrible. It'll have to be the CORE Japan one, because the sociology paper was just so bad I don't want to think about it. But the CORE Japan one has charts. Will they accept it if it has charts? /worried

And I have to get a copy of my official transcript. I don't know where to get it! Looks like tonight will be another "running around like a complete derp" night. SIGH. It's due by 5 pm on Thursday and the materials all have to be printed out andd sealed in an envelope. I also have no envelope. And I have to study for my History midterm tomorrow.

elementalhero: NO PANTS (Pokemon [Gold/Silver])
rofl so I keep meaning to study for my midterms, but then I get distracted by RP.


I am also way behind on that thirty-day meme, but my bandwidth has been wackystrange lately and sometimes doesn't let me embed shit and THAT'S NO FUN FOR ANYONE D8

Talk to me?
elementalhero: NO PANTS (Tamaki/Haruhi [zomg love!])
Seriously, this quiet room in the library is so conducive to me actually doing work. (Well, I mean, obviously now I'm not, but I just wrote up a moderately decent resume and I'm taking a little break to give me some time to think).

I felt miserable this morning because I woke up late, but then I texted my friend and she came and sat with me at breakfast, and then I felt a whole ton better. I think this proves I really need to interact with my RL friends more - the second we got too busy to see each other as much, I felt sad and lonely. And then it only took about twenty minutes talking with her to perk me up again. Moral of the story: FRIENDSHIP. And also bright, spacious, quiet rooms. Instead of dark, cramped, quiet-except-for-slamming-doors-and-people-having-sex-across-the-hall rooms.

Code Geass derpery and spoilers )

Back to writing my letter of application -_-

Sorry I've been so weird and anxty lately. I've just kind of felt...I don't know, miserable and detached from everything for the past couple days, like I'm swimming through this really thick kind of clear corn syrup. What a beautiful simile. :|

In other news, I finally got the information I needed to apply for a Residential Assistant position - and the paperwork is due tomorrow by 5 pm. And I need to write a resume and get references in less than 24 hours. WHO THE HELL IS IN CHARGE OF DISSEMINATING THIS GODDAMN INFORMATION IS WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.
