Well, nothing so dramatic as that.

I just really wish Traine Thompson's personality would solidify in my head instead of rolling around like a bag of cats.

And that I didn't suddenly get hit by a huge crush on the entire cast of Avengers. Seriously guys. Stop being such adorkably cuddly, derpy people of awesome.
kageisuke: (щ(°Д°щ) ¡¿Por quuueee?!)
Wow, I haven't used LJ in... about three months. And my DW account even less so. I just hang around plurk all the time, and scuttle around the interwebz. School just started on monday so I am preparing myself. Pullin' up ma bootstraps. Guarding my loins. Not how that saying goes, I'm sure. And puttin' on ma fightin' panties. Or something. That being said, I wish I could say I had the motivation, organizational skills, and willpower required to go to work, keeping up with school, AND RP. But alas. I'm afraid after last semester, I don't think I can handle more than work and school.

I only had three classes last semester, and really only two at a time. One was a full 16 weeks and the others were 8 weeks each, one in the first half of the semester and the other the second half. I couldn't handle all the reading and just. Died. halfway through the semester. I dropped the other class and still only barely managed to keep up with the one class I had left. And I liked that class, too. I had tags sitting there for two months, it was so sad. So, unfortunately, knowing myself and how little much I can handle, I don't think I can, in good conscience, join another comm. I was planning on dropping DV simply because they were waffling and I got tired of nothing but sexy time threads. They're fun and all, but there's a lot more to Blaine's character that can't come out when it's his duty to get into your pants. I mean, he already thinks that, but giving him a *legitimate* reason for his dastardly behavior is just horrible for character development. e___e

So, no more RPs for now. Maybe halfway through the semester I can see where I am and maybe sneak one in, but I don't want to app and then instantly start failing. It kinda sucks because I don't want to come into a game 'late' when everyone I know has already been there. I want the rush for contacts and the come-upmanship that a broship creates and just... not for Blaine to be there last and rely on contacts already made like in DV. It's kinda hard to explain, but I'm sure someone somewhere gets it. Either way, because I fail at life, no games for me. But I guess I can stick around in meme. Maybe bring out hella old muses to have fun with... let's hope I don't just fail everything e___e
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (The face before I smack you like a bitch)
Oh, many failures abound. I believe that most of them do not belong to me, but effect me a lot. This is going to be about school and a new job.

First: School.

I have registered for classes, but I need to change two of them. I need 12 credits to make full time and not lose my grant money. Also so that I can defer my loans for school. I have to figure out WHICH to take though. So far I have 8 credits that I KNOW I'm going to take. And then I have to find a 4 credit so it's an even twelve so I have enough money without paying out. If I would do a 3 credit and then find a 1 credit diddly class just for shits and giggles I would, but gdi. Can't find them and I don't want to scour the whole catelog, and I can't search the database by how many credits the classes are. Bollocks.

Then I still have to make sure financial aid goes through, and I put in my transfers from my two colleges so I'm waiting to see what they're going to accept as credits. Hopefully at least the basics and the basic computer class. I refuse to take that shit again for 20 bucks only to fail because the tests are stupid. There are 5 different ways to do EVERYTHING in microsoft products, yet they only want you to do everything ONE way, and if you click wrong, penalized. I click all over the place when doing stuff, I'm not wasting 20 bucks to take a test I know I'll fail.

AND NOW WORK: Oh. LOL. The USPS is a piece of work. I knew this was going to happen. I put in for the job, and they called me back this past Tuesday? She asked how soon I could start, and I said I had to give two weeks to my current job and she said, no joke, verbatim, "We don't got that amount of time. We need people now." Holy shit. You want people to drop EVERYTHING and burn bridges for you. Okaaay. Long story short, she was R U D E. She said she'd call back that day or the next day. She didn't. Instead, my mother called me this morning telling me to get there before 10:30 so I can do medical stuff and all. I'm like ajskfja because not so much sleep, going to bed at 3 am and mother calls at 9am. Mostly because I was venting to Kris about the rude lady.

So I go up there, annoyed because there's a chance that Orientation is going to be Saturday and Monday. Really. WTF. How do you call people in on Thursday and then turn around to start them working Saturday? Even if it's orientation. That's why they have shitty people. Because the only ones who can get a job are a. people who have no job right now [for varying reasons, not all bad]; and, b. people willing to drop their other job with no notice; otherwise known as discourteous bastards.

It was only supposed to take ten minutes, but APPARENTLY I had to do the interview and such too because the medical stuff wasn't supposed to happen until after I got the interview and was going to be hired e___e WELP. So I did the med stuff and took my interview. But LOL I had work at 12:30 and had no idea I was going to be there from 10:20 until 12. They don't seem to realize I have other obligations. They want you to drop everything RIGHT THEN and bend over backwards. If you don't, they skip right over you and just take someone else. It's such bull.

But now, at least orientation isn't Saturday~ But it's still Mon-Wed, 8-12. Oh, joy! Still less than a week's notice. And the new schedule hasn't even been posted for next week. So I have to go in tomorrow and fucking scramble around to try and GIVE people my shifts or change shifts so I can make orientation, because if I don't, *skips right over* and then I'll be shit out of luck. The other job that I really want that's paid more is still calling people, and my score was shitty, so I'm way down on the list. I'm hoping already being in the system will give me a leg up.

Even if it doesn't, if I can hack this 40+ hour a week job AND school I'll be able to get ahead on bills and have a nice nest egg. But I'm still kinda mad, because the way they're talking, I'm going to have orientation Mon-Wed, and they might ask me to go in to work WEDNESDAY NIGHT. I'm so pissed! It's bad enough that I can't go to Otakon now. But I can't even spend that night with everyone to joke around before they all head up. And then Cheza is still going to be in town until Wednesday, so I have to spend time with her, but I just. Don't know how I'm going to work this and still sleep. *cries*

My life. Full of fail. But at least I'll be able to pay Pan back for registering for me for the past two years >_>

This wasn't what I actually came here to post, BUT for my reference since I'm horrible with time:

So... it's been about two weeks(?) since my grandfather got his car back. I'd say... it was about 2-3 days ago that I learned he was in an accident and they took him to the hospital. He's fine, but.


This entry was actually to post my TV watching schedule for the summer. Winter/Spring time was:

Wed | 10 PM | The Tudors | BBC
Thur | 10 PM | America's Best Dance Crew | MTV
Sat | 9 PM | Doctor Who | BBC

It's been a while since I've really settled down and watched a lot of things on TV on a specific day. Last time was actually summer of last year, aaand now, my summer shows!

Mon | 10 PM | Teen Wolf | MTV *actually ashamed*
Tues | 9 PM | White Collar | USA *only if I actually feel like it*
Tues | 10 PM | Covert Affairs | USA
Wed | 10 PM | The Tudors | BBC
Sat | 9 PM | Battle Star Galactica |BBC
Sun | 10 PM | The Glades | A&E

It's like 10PM is the magical time. I don't know how many I'll actually be able to keep up with. I might have to catch reruns and might just give up and marathon them later. Then there's the other shows starting that I don't know the start dates/times for, which are basically Torchwood and True Blood.

The list of shows I want to watch/re-watch is obscenely long, too. orz

The Outlanders *new show on BBC*
True Blood
Burn Notice

Re-Watching or catching up on:
Ao no Exorcist
Mai Hime
Being Human [BBC]
Buffy the Vampire Slayers
Classic Doctor Who

Mmmm. I have no life |D~
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Oh come ooooon! *throws controller*)

Since December 5th at 8:54pm, I have gotten SEVENTEEN [17] calls from this one number. I have no idea who it is, I answered it once and thought it might have been my sister going 'Hellooooooooo', though I had no idea what phone she had. They called back to back to back and I rejected it every time. No telemarketer calls you at 10pm, since I'm sure it's quite illegal. And then. THEN. Final straw.

They woke me up at 7am this morning.

Oh. HELL no. I answered it, no response. Blocked that number SO FAST. But my phone shows they called at 7:02, THRICE at 7:04, 7:05, TWICE at 7:06, 7:07, 7:08, 7:09, 7:27. Who the hell DOES that at seven o'clock in the morning? And I was so pissed I couldn't even go back to sleep for a few hours. I don't know if I can report this or not. If I can, I would, just to teach the little bastards on the other end a lesson. I just don't know how to go about it aside from popping up at the local police station [which I don't know where it is. State Police station is around the corner, but they don't handle those types of things, I don't think.]

Then add on that my Grandfather is a lying liar who lies and is trying to get attention by calling other people liars [I went out and treated my friends to the movies with your debit card? Oh. I wish. I WISH.] then the day was just fail. Confronted him with it today, and he was like, 'I didn't say that D8' and I'm like, 'What, so my mother lied?', 'Well, [insert Uncle's name here]' and I'm like, Oh bullshit. He hasn't even talked to my mother since then. Talk about a slap to the face.

Only good point. My boss changed the schedule, so instead of closing with her today, I don't have to see her AT ALL. That's the best present of all.

EDIT: They called AGAIN. At 5:45 and 5:46. Seriously. WTF.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Do a H-H-Happy Dance!)
Figures. Had two library books. Mother and Uncle come into the house to start trying to clean it up. One of the books disappears. I shrug, since I have 2 weeks on one [lease book] and 4 weeks on the other. the one I have I return, thinking it's the lease book.

Non non mi ami or whatever it is in French. It was the 4 week book I returned [to the wrong library], and the other is still nowhere to be found. I'm racking up horrible late fees as we speak.


A few bits of non-monetary good news:
• NaNo is going well. I haven't really hit any hitches or had any loss of where to go next. No part that is boring and hard to trudge through. Only concern is that my outline isn't finished, so I have to fill that out before I catch up and start wandering without a plan. Luckily, every time I've stopped so far it's been at a part that I can easily start up again from. Maybe I could even keep writing from, if I got ambitious, but by the time I finish my 1667 words [and frequently more than if I'm on a roll and don't want to lose the image in my head] I'm tired and decide to quit while I'm ahead. Having a good stopping point is better for me than hammering it out to the next point, where I have to, basically, start fresh.

• Been drawing a lot more. I'm enjoying it. Sitting on the couch with TV in the background for white noise has led to many a productive and not-so-shitty session. Maybe my skills haven't atrophied so much after all \o/

GDI. I had a plan for this morning, and I actually got out of bed at 10:20.

I got sucked into the Military Channel. :[ I'm such a sucker for military tactics. Ended up on the couch from 11-2 watching the analysis of battles about Midway and Al-something in Egypt.

I at least got the dishes done, because they've been in the sink for two weeks >_> But I didn't get to clear off my bookshelves or do NaNo before work. Fail. OTL
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Oh come ooooon! *throws controller*)
Well. That just fucked up my day. The good thing about working early is all the remaining waking hours I can devote to whatever the hell I want.

Oh wait. It's 6 o'clock.


kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (How did you know I ate a bag of sugar?!)
Eh. My shoulder has been hurting for weeks. My range of motion has been getting better, but goddamn is it shitty to have to lift 10lb pieces of ham when your dominant arm has a vendetta against you. I slept on it wrong one night and... man, who knows.

That place STILL hasn't gotten back to me about career day. I still have hopes for the job, but I really should have been 1. Studying more; 2. Applying for other jobs. If I could find something within 30 minutes of home [that hopefully isn't downtown, fuck do I hate paying 7 dollars a day for parking] I would take it. As long as it paid me as much or more than I make now. This job isn't bad, but management really pisses me off.

I've been re-reading KareKano. And since Kris was reading it too, it made it all the more enjoyable. I really, really love that series. I have to do a few tweaks on how I play Yukino, since it's been a shamefully long time since I re-read all of her canon from the start [and I've been playing her for 3 years, so looong]. She's gotten a bit off track, but now that I'm just... enjoying RPing in general, Yukino especially, it'll be easier to bring her around to the active, personable, manipulative, and thoughtful person she should be. I let her stagnate for way too long. She's so out of the know it's criminally OOC. She should know everyone important and excel in people relations and information gathering. She needs to be up there with Maes in how much she knows. Better late than never? Eheh? Let's hope my motivation lasts.

And now, because I obviously don't post enough *sarcasm*

DAY 01 - Very First Anime

Dragon Ball Z!

I chose this picture because I have a horrible sense of humor.

Come on, you knew it was coming. I almost said Thundercats, but that was American Made and produced, even if it was animated by a Japanese company. Or something. ANYWAY, Oh Toonami. I used to rush home to make sure that I got to watch it. I also watched Sailor Moon, but that wasn't until later as I had -still have- an amazing aversion to girly things. They totally offend my sensibilities.

30 Days of Anime )

Haha, Suge na~ This marks my 1001 post~ *random*
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Baaaaw you kicked my puppy T^T!)
-but Firefox, I'm leaving you.

Not for IE, oh gods no. Maybe it's gotten better, with security holes the size of a compact instead of a semi-truck, but their tabs and other things signal a DNW.

No, I've left you for FLOCK, since I already had it on my computer anyway from when I had to upload masses of pictures into photobucket and doing it one at a time [since the bulk uploader didn't work in FF or the IE tab] was just not an option for 132 mood icons. I apologize, since we've had a long an fulfilling relationship. Sure, it had its ups and downs, mostly ups, mind you, but now that I have ljlogin on FLOCK, that was all that kept me dedicated to you.

Flock doesn't take 3 minutes just to open, and when I loaded OMGPOP, which always made you stutter incomprehensibly, it loaded up in 10 seconds. Maybe even less. I lament it had to end this way, but we'll see one another again some day. I promise.

When I upload all my bookmarks, it'll be official. My default is already FLOCK, and I won't have to open up FF again. CNN.com videos is still a bitch no matter which browser I'm in, so I just chalk it up to that site being a douchenozzle.

When I got off of work today, I went outside and was so blissfully happy. The temperature was so NICE. It's, what? Ninety-two degrees outside. The humidity isn't so bad. I nearly cried my relief. Yesterday was one-hundred and five degrees. 105. The day before that was just as bad. 103 maybe? After three days of over 100 degree weather and VA's shitty humidity, everyone was so grateful for NORMAL hot weather we talked about it all day.

Here's to not suffering in sweltering heat \o

But I actually woke up last night because it was too hot. That's telling you something, when I WAKE UP because it's too damn hot. Not a first, but it's hella rare.

And in other news, my Senator. Oh, lol. I really do like my senators. Webb made a big co/ed post in the paper about how affirmative action and minority programs to help those in need weren't helping the people who are supposed to be helped by it [black people] and is turning into a big[ger] pot of reverse racism against whites. *strokes the man* While it isn't that simple, what he wrote nor the topic itself, I give him a thumbs up. I agree in part, and disagree on a few things, but I wish people could talk about it without being large douche nozzles about it. And don't get me started on that shitty [conservative] blogger who totally disregarded the message of that [black] woman who was telling the NAACP that we need to overcome and do the right thing. Way to be the epitome of why so many minorities are distrustful of white people. It's those douchebaggy things that stick with them, not the nice things.

Maybe I can move to Britain? Their economy will hold up right? Euro is strong right? Too bad I won't ever get a proper British accent. Black people with British accents are awesome. White people, only so-so. =o= Lawl. I kid. *fuels the race fire in bad taste*
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Run joker; run! Makin' them bitches cry~)
Well. Burying myself into books has succeeded in liberating me from my comp for a while. Actually, more so than that is my wireless connection being a right douche and not staying connected, so I either flake off to read or grab my sister's netbook to make sure nothing exploded on the internet before THEN flaking off to watch TV or read MOAR BOOKS. I have pretty much been eaten by The Dresden Files. Brief cut for spoilers from book 2 [Fool Moon] )

The reading of the books also ties into my wanting to start writing again. Unfortunately, I don't really know where to start. I've gotten a few drabbles written recently on my comp that refuses to connect to the internet that gets the juices flowing, but... I want to start a NEW story. With a new world and new characters and new problems. I just don't know where to start, especially when I haven't finished up properly with any of my others. B| There's so much to expand and make concrete that I don't know if I can really dedicate myself to something new when I can so easily jump back into my old one and make scenarios like that. Scenes that can be part of the story so easily if only I knew where it was going. *sighs* Story of my liiiife. A beginning and no ending.

Add onto the wanting to read and write is wanting to draw, but I haven't succumbed to that desire yet. I might as well, since my desire to RP has hit rock bottom. IM RP that's spontaneous is still fun. It may take a few hours, but then it's done and I can go back to the logs and re-read them and smile and go off and do whatever. Logging in and picking icons and trying to do plots is just killing me. I'm trying, but I am. Failing. Hardcore.

kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Keyboard smash dead ahead)
Aaa, so much stuff I wanted to briefly talk about.

Anita Blake )

Coming off of the Flirt book, the mini book, Hamilton starts to talk about how she does a mini story. A scene sticks in her head and sometimes it just won't get out of her head and she does it and everything comes out all the better for it. The little scenes I have in my head for my story that stalled are part of the reason why it's so hard for me to write a full book... that and I don't know how to end them. BUT that's neither here nor there. I think I'm going to do a side story I never would have been able to do in the full story anyway, since neither Blake nor Blaine are the main characters and it's only the results that matter in the main story. Even if I never actually DO include it in the main story, it'll be nice to just.... write and complete a story. It's been ages since I've done that when they weren't PWPs and, hey, the point of those is there IS no plot so there's nothing much to tie up in the first place.

Aaaand moving on to the more distressing news [to me] is that they're wrapping up the Census where I live. My CLA thinks they're collapsing my area into another one and we'll all be out of a job. Now, I knew it would happened eventually, as it was made perfectly clear to us that we're temporary. But since this IS government work, I totally expected it to last longer than it was supposed to, or at least not wrap up EARLY. So now I'm super pissed, because the reason why I wasn't able to make as much money as I should have been is because my current job fucked me over for hours. Those first three weeks turned out to be even more critical. I was hoping I could make it up, but no. I can't. The best I can hope is to transfer to another unit, but I'm doubting that. So, wonderful. I'm out of the hole, the time I had to try and figure out something else is past. I can't afford to not go back on the schedule 6 days a week when I don't have another income to at least balance it out. My life? Fuck it.

Speaking with my CLA has been a great boon for me though. He's the one who's given me all the ideas about an interest inventory to see what most interests me and all the other stuff that will hopefully be of help. Even if it isn't, at least he tried, I tried. Maybe something good'll come from it.

The last 5 days have been filled with 4-5 hour nights of sleep which just IS NOT ENOUGH for me. Since I didn't have a binder to work last night, I stayed out to read, went to the library, and then I got home and went to bed before 10pm. And it was glorious. Now I technically have today off, SO... I'm going to go fucking enjoy it B|

I've been sneezing and sniffling for the past week. It started off with nasal congestion and a sore throat. I got aches like the last time I was 'sick', so I was preparing for one of my not!colds and vainly hoping and praying that it was NOT allergies. Many people looked at me weird when I said 'I hope it's a cold :[' but hell. A cold lasts 1 week and then you're bad to normal. Allergies last ALL SEASON. I'd much rather have the cold.

I took nyquil. It.... didn't really work. *sob*

I took some benadryl. I can breath again.

FML allergies. WHY NOW.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (*D8*)
Okay, when I was mentally writing this post in my head earlier, it was going to be a super happy post. Now, it's just frustrated.

The Census Office called me back today, and I was so stoked. Yes, I said stoked. Unfortunately, I was at work, so I could't call back until my lunch break.

Turns out, they can only accept 3-4 people at a time, and by the time I went on lunch I had just missed the last opening. It is SO frustrating, because the lady told me it was to potentially be the supervisor/team lead and THAT'S WHAT I WANTED. ajksdlja;k

They're thinking the job will only last 8 weeks, which... isn't as long as I was expecting. That makes me missing this opportunity even WORSE because the later it gets, the more likely I'll have LESS than 8 weeks.

*face in my hands*

Then, My co-worker cut herself on the slicer. Snip snip, off with the tip, just like mine. HERS was worse, and that nifty 6 dollar bandage did noooot help her. So she actually had to go to the hospital. B| That means that they only have one person closing, as the other person gets off at 9, and the closing person... doesn't know how to close. 8| So I'm going back in at 8-10 just to do the stuff at night that I don't normally do since someone else beats me to it. >_>

Here's to me not fucking it up \o

Also, here's to getting another call from the census, and me abandoning whatever I'm doing to answer the gd phone OR CALL BACK RIGHT AWAY.

I'm sure quite a few of you on my f-list follow Bleach news a lot closer than I, but since this was brought to my attention, why not spread the fail hilarity?

Gene Simmons' son Plagiarizing Bleach?

I dunno... I just found it hilarious. I wonder what Kubo thinks? If I were a mangaka, I'd be like '...someone thought this was work plagiarizing? Awww |D~ Legally bitchslap him please so I can continue work with a smile =D'

I do question though, where do you draw the line between using something as a reference, and just out right plagiarism? And if you're going to plagiarize, why not at least use something that isn't so well know. e____e That isn't really my approval to go and plagiarize some unknown person, but seriously?

EDIT: Ahaha, someone rps Kubo on Dear_mun.

EDIT 2: Someone RPs the Old Spice Man on a horse. BRB. Can't... stop laughing...
kageisuke: (Failure is your only option 8D)
I've learned a few things in the past week or so.

1. A can of manwich does not have all that's necessary to make one right out of the can. The picture on the front is SUPER DECEIVING.

2. I hate shopping for car insurance; and,

3. Despite my roommates assurances that fixing pancakes is easy, I burned both of mine. Spare me the questions on whether the heat was too high, did you put enough grease in the pan, yadda. I just fail at stovetop cooking aside from ramen, pasta, boiling soups and sauces, and browning meat. That's all I need to survive anyway.

I'm sorry:


I looked out my door and all I saw was WHITE. )

No work tonight, since the Deli was closed. *sighs* I spend almost all of my waking moments so far today watching RahXephon. A boxset I've had for 4+ years and never watched until now. From DVD 3-7, episodes... 10-26, I marathoned that shit with Andrew XD At the end, he was like 'Double u tee eff!' and I was like 'Lawl, Finally.' Now I have a headache from laying down for 6 hours watching it.

...It's lucky I didn't do my taxes on Wednesday, as I got my 1099 in the mail that day. Late. The bastards know they have to be IN your hand by the 31st right? I knew it was coming, and remembered I'd have to add it, but forgot I didn't have the form. I can be pissed that they did a 10% penalty on my pre-tax amount and not my post-tax amount, right? So they penalized me on the full amount that I didn't even get, because they took out 200+ dollars of it for taxes. That's bullshit to me, but WHATEVER.

I did my taxes just in time because my CAR decided to have a fit. Why hello check engine light. It's not nice to see you. What do you mean? Oh, I just hate having to go to the car place where they love to charge you 85 dollars just for them to look at it and try to con you out of money for things that don't need to be fixed, that's all. B|

I'll turn Kyorabi in tomorrow morning, right before another EPIC SNOWSTORM that is slated to be somewhere between 8-20 inches. Yes. Eight to twenty. Because I keep hearing all sorts of numbers from people and haven't actually looked myself because I don't care as long as I can get home. I'll work 8am-10pm if that means I make up the hours I'm going to miss on Saturday because we'll be closed. AGAIN. ~_~

Now to shower and sleep, because I need to be up at 6:50.
