Well, that's one class done for the year. It's sad because improv was an amazing class. During our final project, there was one scene where there was a cat, and the little girl asked "Mommy, is it dead?" And the mother said, "No, sweetie, it's just sleeping." "But it's eyes are open and it's looking right at me." "It's magic." "Like in Harry Potter?" "Yes. Remember when Dumbledore fell off the tower and went to sleep? It's like that."

Plus, a guy pretending to be Marilyn Monroe (no mention of marriage to the Doctor), and another guy pretending to be a Playboy Bunny.

Seriously. Awesome people.

In other news, I have two essays due on Friday that I haven't started because OH GOD MOFFAT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?!?!? SOMEONE ANSWER THE QUESTION ON THE COVER OF DWM ALREADY!

Huh. I guess my week off is technically over. :( And I had to wear pants every day! Normally during a week off, and what I had hoped for this week was to just chill out, watch TV, think about doing my readings and catching up in class, and basically do nothing. But I worked Monday, and Tuesday I went to Chapters to check for DWM, Wednesday was my sister's birthday, and she stayed and went home Thursday, and I work today and tomorrow. Plus, all week there's been a guy in our apartment putting wood floor in the entryway. It doesn't help that all semester, I've actually been hanging out with people (almost every day, really). While it's been fun, I just need a week to hermit up in my room and not speak for a couple of days. And I didn't get that. I shouldn't be too worried, socialising isn't a terrible thing, it's just that for the past two years (as long as I've been in university), near the middle/end of the year, I get some sort of breakdown. Last year was worse than the year before, and I'm scared that trend will continue. Idk, I'll just veg out on Sunday and hope it's enough.

That's right, I've just sent out the Christmas cards! If you still want one though, and are in the US or Canada, there's apparently still time (until Dec 13 for US, Dec 16 for Can). Just leave your address at the post here and I'll send one off. They have glitter! And gel pen writing! Not in orange or yellow, cuz that'd be mean. Remember when gel pens were all the rage? I'm totally bringing that back. Dollarama always has awesome stuff.

You know what's weird? When I'm working in the box office, people sometimes ask me if I've seen whatever movie they're thinking about going to. The answer is usually no. They always act surprised. I don't get it. Yeah, I get free movies, but I don't have the time or inclination to go to every freaking movie. Don't act so shocked when you find out I haven't been to Saw 3D or some chick flick.

Okay, I'm procrastinating just a little. Can you tell I have a ~2000 word essay for English due on Tuesday? And a report for Pop Music due then as well? And a ~3100 word 'blog' for Classics due Thursday? None of which I've started. And I work for ~10 hours tomorrow. And I have to renew my driver's license before the end of the month. This week is gonna be fun.

I kind of really hate the whole concept of essays. (Which may be why it is 2am, and I'm not even a quarter done one that's due at 1 this afternoon) But really, what's the point? Why do I have to ramble on for over a thousand words to try and make a point that I could make in a paragraph? What does that accomplish? All this does is teach students how to bullshit their way through everything and it just stresses everyone out! And it's probably of as much real-world importance as learning how to factor quadratic equations or something (aka none).

I'm just procrastinating now. Which is ridiculous and stupid, but there's not much I can do to stop that. It's taking all my will not to switch over and start rambling in my NaNo, but that's mostly because I'm putting this essay in my NaNo (I've decided I might as well start cheating right off the bat this year, rather than waiting for the inevitable panic later).

ETA: Also, my sense of 'organisation' makes it damn near impossible to get out of my bed, and even more daunting to get back to where I need to be to work. I think I need a desk. A really really big desk...

Arrgh! Today kinda really sucked. I couldn't find my bus pass for a while last night, but found it just before giving up, then this morning, I couldn't find my iPod headphones. Worst of all, this afternoon, I for realsies lost my bus pass, and with it was my meal plan card (with over $200 still loaded on it), and a crapton of coupons. Added to that, I have an English essay due on Tuesday that I haven't started, NaNo's almost here, and all the social interaction that goes with it, and my Classics class has moved past the Iliad and the Odyssey(the stuff I know) into Roman epics, which means I have to start pretending to keep up.

I just want this over with. :(
for a lighter view... (or at least, more pop cultury) )

What a weird week. I finally got around to seeing a therapist, which was alright, and I won some free stuff at Gold's Gym, so I got an assessment there today and got some free time with a personal trainer. Which is completely baffling to anyone that knows me. Athleticism what?

In one of my classes, the big assignment for the semester is to make a pop song. Which sounds cool in theory, but is not so great for us non-music students. Luckily, I'm in a group with my friend, who is a composition major, and one of her friends, who is a computer science major focusing on music stuff, and another guy who isn't in music. You have no idea what a relief that is. I mean, I can probably write some lyrics pretty easily, but the whole music aspect is beyond me. And I believe I am now obligated to link to my friend's music. She has skills, but I can't listen to her music because it personally weirds me out.

So I watched series 1 of Merlin, and it was awesome, and I may post reviews up later. Also, maybe make some icons. As soon as I thought to look up the screencapping keyboard shortcut in VLC, I may have gone a bit overboard. There's just so much pretty! I'm actually a bit frightened to look in that folder and see how many pics I saved.

In that vein, does anyone know of a good place to dl series 2?

1. REPLY TO THIS MEME BY YELLING "MY NAME IS THE MASTER", AND I WILL GIVE YOU FIVE WORDS THAT REMIND ME OF YOU.
2. THEN POST THEM IN YOUR JOURNAL AND EXPLAIN WHAT THEY MEAN TO YOU.
3. KEEP IN MIND THAT IF I DON'T KNOW YOU THAT WELL, YOUR WORDS MIGHT END UP KIND OF ODD OR WEIRD. EVEN IF I DO KNOW YOU, YOUR WORDS WILL STILL MAYBE PROBABLY BE WEIRD. :)

OH! And I decided to jump on this bandwagon:

grlgoddess: (DW fascinating)
Right, so I think I might, maybe, possibly, actually have a plan for the future. It's a very weird sensation.

After realising that University math sucks, I decided that Accounting was probably not my best idea as a fall-back. So it became English. Sometime last semester, I decided I was going to be an English major. The flaw in this plan is, that despite being pretty decently skilled at reading, writing, grammar, and other Englishy skillz, my English marks have always been hovering around the mid- to high-sixties range. Seventies if I got lucky. But, whatever. I guess I'm just going to have to try to learn how to write an essay. Maybe one of these days I'll actually manage to hit the minimum word count again. *sigh*

I know that with an English major, I'm probably best suited to finding a job somewhere in publishing. And I know that I definitely don't want to be a straight-up editor. I don't really like messing with other people's stuff, and I'm a terrible judge of quality. So somehow, I found the job of copy-editor. Mostly, a copy-editor will check out the grammar and structure of a piece, trying to make sure it's all internally consistent, grammatically correct, and understandable. So there's my career.

The problem with this, is that I'm probably going to have to start out freelancing. Which presumably involves people. And communication. Which I suck at. But I'm just going to have to suffer through it. I'm going to have to try and get enough money living here, that I can move to Ontario and try to get a permanent job with a publishing house.

Which raises more problems! Such as, how the hell am I supposed to survive living somewhere where I don't know anybody? Especially when I'm currently almost freaking out just because I can't go home every other weekend, or whenever I want, because my stupid job keeps me working weekends.


I should stop worrying about all of that. It's years away. I just need to calm down, get some rest, and try not to fail English. Easy enough right?


I'm screwed.

As you may have noted from the title, I'm bored. And instead of reading Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' for English or doing whatever-it-is I'm supposed to be doing for Philosophy, or finishing up that lil!Donna fic that I've been procrastinating on for a couple months now because I don't want to write the last little bit, I'm on the internet.

And so I now declare an open season on fic prompts! Anything 4-era, 8, 9/Rose, 10-era, 11, Tosh/?. I don't really care (well, 10/Rose is not my thing, and Rose in general I'm probably not that good at).

Crappy!week is crappy, and not looking to get better...

emoemoemo )

So, I was wondering if any of you lovely people who I stalk, but fail at commenting at, would have any kinda-happy-but-not-ridiculously-annoying tidbits to share?
grlgoddess: (Default)

Hilo! I realised that I haven't posted in forever, and that is wrong. I've been going a little crazy cause math 103 sucked (so I dropped it), and German sucks (but I can't drop it), and actually having a job while going to school somehow causes me stress. Which doesn't make sense because (1) I don't get stress like, ever, and (2) I basically spend all day online anyhow. It's not like my job cuts into my studying or homework. Maybe it has something to do with the constant interaction with other people. I'm probably way exceeding my socializing quota.

Anyhow, I have a plan for the last bit of lil!Donna, and will write and post those this week, plus I have to write a ficathon entry. Next week, I will find some sort of coherent plot for my NaNo novel. I do not want a repeat of last year. It played out like some cracktastic dream with about 5 John Keates poems thrown in.

But now I am bored, and stole this meme from [profile] madly_love

Good news - that's done with (for now at least)
Bad news - I'm really freaking bored!
