Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and you shall be rewarded!


Treats can be anything I choose to bestow upon thee, oh merry trick-or-treater (little drawings, graphics, drabbles, and so on). The more "houses" to visit the merrier, so go ahead and open up your journal as well, if you please!

My f-list seems quiet lately, and I'm torn between sad (because I love y'all) and relieved (because sometimes I go days without getting on LJ).  But I guess I'm part of that quiet problem, so I should post.  Even if it's short.

  • I'm back in school.  Good classes but I'm just not into it like I used to be; I'm not sure if I'm still adjusting from working all summer, or if it's just...being done?  Though frankly it seems like my semesters have been a downward slide since I got here.

  • Spent half the weekend with Mallory's family, which was nice.  They're wonderful people and I still have no idea how I ended up with another surrogate family but it's nice to be a part of it, even if I feel awkward around people.  As always.

  • 9 days til SPN s9, for which I am cautiously optimistic because they have so much potential but then also really not because some of the spoilers are...unencouraging.  Then again, they are out of context so maybe circumstances will mitigate things.  Who knows.  I won't be watching live because EVERY SHOW that I watch is during a class.  Well, except for Community since that's not even...a thing yet.  Le sigh.

  • Watched S.H.I.E.L.D., which was much more fun than typing the name is (seriously guys what were you thinking) and also Revolution.  Along with SPN, that makes up the triage of US shows that I'll be keeping up with this year.  (Again, except for Community).  I don't think there's anything else on that I care enough to spend time watching.  But yeah, discussion of any of those three is welcome in comments!

  • On the other hand, I read two books this weekend...and I can't remember how long it's been since I've done that.  For those interested, they were the first two in The Raven Cycle and I enjoyed them.  Partially for different reasons than I expected, which is always fun. There were a couple of huge twists in them that I did not see coming at all, which is always fun.  I think I've forgotten how to be in book fandom, though.  Or maybe I just do it in my lit classes anymore.  Who knows.

  • Somewhat related: lately I have been in a mood where I just feel like raging against the patriarchy, so I'm in need of girl power and queer representation in...things.  Anything, really.  Anyone got any recs?

  • I need to be editing, someone make me do it.

So, cool story:

zekkass and I were talking about writing and how we wished there was somewhere to talk about writing.  So we decided to make it happen.
No matter what you write, or how often you write, or even how well you write, we'd love to have you hang out and talk about writing with us.  And spread the word, if you know anyone who might like to join in?  ♥

It's okay, I hardly remember myself after so long of not posting.

  • Just got back from our summer vacation.  Took ten days and flew out to see my sister in Connecticut, then went camping up in Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton, the Bay of Fundy, and Acadia.  It was fun.  I am tired now.

  • Related: I am so sick of traveling.  The constant noise and movement drives me absolutely fucking insane and makes me feel claustrophobic.  Or something.  It's not very fun.

  • Also related: I fly back to Texas on Wednesday.  I'm not much looking forward to that, since last semester was such utter shit.

  • I have friends coming over tonight so I should be unpacking and stuff so it's not a mess when they're here.  I really can't be fucked.  It's not so much that I don't want to see them tonight (as it's my last chance for awhile).  I just don't want to do anything much right now.

  • The only thing that brought this post to you was the fact that the icon I'm trying to make for w-s looks super terrible right now and I'm out of ways to fix it.  SIGH /0\

  • I'm trying to post more again since it seems that my flist is sort of reviving itself, and also because at this point I've basically given up on tumblr.  Too old for it, I guess.  But it's nice to read y'alls entries and really, I think LJ is the best platform I've found for making friends online.  So if you see me around you can prod me to post (if you want) or distract me with shiny things so I don't post (if you'd rather have that).

  • okay fine I'll go fix that fucking icon

I know I have been not-very-active on here lately, and just.  Bleh.  I am so sorry and I'm trying to read y'all's posts even if I don't have time to comment.  But I saw this meme floating around and wanted to post it before I forgot/it got too outdated/some other dumb excuse I made up to keep myself from posting.

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here’s a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: “Ah, there’s [Your name here]… they like money and cereal.” I’d love it if everyone who’s friended me did this. (Yes, even you people who I know fairly well.) Then post this in your own journal (you don't have to, but it would be awesome). In return, ask me anything you’d like to know about me and I’ll give you an answer.


In other-life news...nothing much exciting. Will probably try to get a post together sometime soon. Thanks for sticking with me. ♥

It's been one hell of a week. Done with one presentation, one quiz, one essay. For Monday, another (longer) essay and two more presentations, both of which have projects attached. For Tuesday, a test. And tomorrow, a shitton of rehearsing for various wind ensemble performances/somehow finding time to do all the regular homework that I have to do for classes that aren't doing their finals early.

I've at least been trying to read all the entries on my f-list, and in lieu of being able to actually comment on every one, I've been trying to hit threads on the holiday love meme as I see them. There's a few things I would've liked to post about here but I don't have the energy by the time I get through all the things I have to do.

Back to work cataloguing awesome women in the history of the web, and next time I talk about overloading on credits, someone hit me on the head, hard.
