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 (FUCKING MADAGASCAR DDDD<)

OTAKON. Who on my f-list [lj only people] are coming and going to be in my room? My calculations are 7 people right now, but a few maybes.


SCHOOL. I have applied, spoke with my counselor. I skipped... a few steps I think. .__. I have to speak with the transfer specialist, and then probably financial aid. I have grant money to use, but I don't know how the hell all of this stuff works. I know I need the money to pay for classes and the books and all, but I'm hoping I'll have some left over. I'm kind of doubting it. BUT going back into school on a full time basis WOULD delay my student loans. Which is a major part of why I can't ever catch up. 200 bucks going towards that every month.

Even if I only go full time one semester [fall] I would still have 6 months after that before they start again. And by that time, I'll have paid off one of my loans, and if I do it right, possibly my car, too. That would be such a load off. But then all the money would just go to my mother, who I... haven't really been paying all of my rent to since I moved in. ⌐_⌐ I have a roommate now, finally, a co-worker who's nice |D and it's amazingly helpful for my mother to have someone who is actually PAYING to stay in the house. But then the AC blew up. So she's still in the hole paying for that. It's like Murphy's Law decided to target us specifically.

And, of course, I don't know which courses I want to take. I have been looking at the Networking Fundamentals, because I thought to myself that maybe that's what I should have done. It has more hands on work and not just staring at the computer all day. Probably. It's a certificate and not a degree, but based on it I can get my A+ cert later, which I should have had ages ago, and yet 8|a

But then there's WELDING. I don't know why that's stuck in my head, but I kind of want to go for it. It's also just a certificate, but I figure I could get it in two semesters as extra classes to take. Problem is, it's at another campus. It's a good clip away, but I believe some classes are at the campus closest to me. If I'm lucky, it's the ones that are the fundamentals that I need to take first that are over here, so I can figure out whether to power on or just drop it. At least with the networking stuff it's all over here. If I like the classes, I can jump right into the associates while trying to find a service desk job or something. I thought about a bachelors, but computer science is a lot of math and programming and that's why I didn't want to do web design. The programming part that is. Eventually I will probably have to get a bachelors in SOMETHING so that I can get higher paying jobs, but I'm just happy to have some kind of plan.

I haven't told my mother anything either, because then she'll act all happy and if I drop the ball her disappointment will crush me. ;__;


Work. Not getting enough pay, as usual. Not enough hours, but I don't really want more. I'm hoping to get a call for that post office job at the end of this month, but who knows. If I do, then I'll have that, my current job, and school. I don't know how that'll work, but I have to give it a shot. If all else fails, I'll have to drop down from my current job to one day a week or something. I just need to keep it because I DEMAND to get my vacation week. I would also like to keep my insurance, but pft. Who knows.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (...THIS... is how I roll)
Long time no see personal LJ. I blame it solely on Plurk. There were a lot of things that I was supposed to continue ranting about, but my back hurts and I feel a little queasy.

I really need to get on the Otakon stuff, but I have no idea how many are coming. Really, I just want a firm number. Don't tell me who thinks they're going, or plan on going or aren't sure or whatever. I just want a nice solid number. e__e Creating the table isn't that hard, but I'm just... kinda over having to plan all this shit and dealing with the stress of some -what should be patented- stupid. If I didn't hate so passionately the idea of giving my money to someone else I'd let someone else do it. Last time I went to a con someone else planned the money out for I cringed because I felt like they were getting ripped off, and I didn't even PAY for a spot in the hotel room because I was broke and they needed my car to get there anyway. e__e

Otherwise, I should be going back to school for a few classes, but I need to get off my ass and register for classes and figure out what I'm going to take. It may be grant money [ie 'free'] but I don't want to waste it. I need to go by the school and pick up a catalog. I hate PDFs and I still like having a book in my hand that I can physically sit down with and flip through. Being on the computer is just a giant distraction to me. I want to take a sewing class and do patterns and... MAKE STUFF. I liked it when I took home ec in middle school, but my schedule in high school was just a clusterfuck of classes and I didn't/couldn't follow up on it.

That and I have an aversion to making things that just sit around the house and gather dust. It's another reason why I don't get canvas and do chalk pastels. I hate things lying around with nowhere to put them. Feels like a waste.

So yeah. And I applied for two USPS jobs. Both pay more than what I get now. I'm just... really hoping my not so great test score won't put me too low on the list to get hired. I have two bills that have only a year left before they're paid off, and if I get this job, I can pay them both off and just have a few less things to have to pay every damn month. Here's hoping. *crosses fingers*

Oh my, I'm going to starve. Not enough hours at work, and I can't spend my tax money until I know about the job or not. I'm still amused [read = annoying and rolling my eyes] that they feel 20 cents is a decent raise. I'm twenty five [now] working in a grocery store. Oh, my life. What am I going to do with it? I wish I knew. I feel younger than I am.

Spent at least an hour yesterday, between refreshing that gd plurk, searching through [livejournal.com profile] collapsingnight for this ONE icon.

At least 100 posts. I didn't even find it. My eyes probably glazed over and missed it, but it's still annoying to have not found it. I want the bigger picture of it to use as reference, but I have no idea where to find it. I want to redo a picture I'd done last year, but I'm horrid at leg positions. Ah well, that icon will have to do. The general layout should be enough.

Now, to finish reading Acheron. That boy's life ass horrible, but I laughed at him just as much as Fitz in the Farseer Trilogy. Can't do anything but laugh at how shitty his life was. It got better.
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 (Keyboard smash dead ahead)
Random tidbits from work:

Me: The schedule isn't done yet. B|
Kitchen Manager: Actually it is.
Me: No it's not. It isn't posted.
Kitchen Manager: That doesn't mean it's not done.
Me: Yes it does. It isn't done until it's posted, we've looked at it, and complained about it.
Kitchen Manager: *laughs* That was a good one.
Me: I've gotta get one in every day.

And the BEST one EVER. We have a fire station right around the corner, and recently, they've been coming in and getting sandwich meat for lunch. This saturday, I was rolling.

T: So, you're not supposed to soak wood in gasoline and put it in your fireplace, are you?
Fireman: .......WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?
T: I didn't. My step dad/father-in-law [something I forgot] did. Told him it was stupid.
Fireman: Yeah, you shouldn't ever do that. Gasoline is dangerous and highly flammable.
T: Told him. And Imma report him, too. :[ It was wet, and he soak it in gas then put it int he fireplace.
Fireman: Is he in ____ County?
T: No, he's in the city.
Fireman: Oh good \o

Me: *laughing forever*

His face. Oh, man, it was PRICELESS. It reminded me of all of those interwebz motivation and memes. The look of 'ARE YOU STUPID' on his face, even if it wasn't her. Aaa, humanity sometimes isn't fit for life.

Had to be at work at 6:30 this morning. Woke up to my alarm clock at 5:15. Hit snooze repeatedly. Stared at phone at 5:50 and sighed.

*fast forward 45 minutes* Re-wake up at 6:34. Lol oops. Got to work at 7. \o Oh well. All the work got done and I got extra sleep =D;;

Additionally: Oh LJ. So funny. You and your wanting to connect to other sites that many of our users hate. *strokes* It's okay. I have a DW account, but I don't use it. Yet. I guess I should add to those on my f-list or who comment on my journal: Don't cross post. I'm not on those sites for a reason, and there's enough stupid stuff on LJ. Don't want more. =o=

Additionally 2: Watching Hellsing Ultimate. Subbed. I am split two ways. I almost always watch things in Japanese and only choose English as an after thought. [Outlaw Star and Saiyuki being two of the exceptions] But I like the dub [mmm accents~ |D And Crispin Freeman] Maybe the same reason why I like the GitS and Wolf's Rain dubs. Crispin Freemaaaaan

I'm behind on my 30 days of anime. Meh. =o=
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Doin' the humpty hump)
Fiinallly. A date for my interview/Career Day is set! Sep 8th! Now I can procrastinate for 3 weeks on catching up on studying. But really, I need to be looking for another job that's in town. Looking at apartments up there, 900 bucks is the cheapest in VA so far north, and... I'll have to go and see if it's as seedy as I think it might be XD;;

And for the day before yesterday; yesterday; AND today!

DAY 02 - Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

Hikaru no Go took up a large portion of my youth, I feel like... Not as much as SM or DBZ, but it just further cemented my fall into love shounen series. It was about a damn board game. That is so not exciting until you put it into manga/anime form. I still carry some of that series with me everywhere. Ogata is part of my SN, and that was a direct pull from my favorite adult character, Ogata. He's such a skeevy man... him and his fish tank...

DAY 03 - Your anime crush

I'm horrible at these questions. I always think really hard about them. I barely remember what I watched last week, much less years and years ago, so a character I looked at and went 'Hot Damn' about I may not remember 6 months from then. >_> BUT skipping the monologue:

Balalaika is one crazy bitch. But I can't think of any other female leads I wag my tail at. Even as a man she tops my list >_>;; Yoruichi was a dead heat, but I'm a sucker for a girl with a gun. .__. And bringing up Yoruichi leads to my male pick \o/ Urahara. Sans the hat. If I could think of a MANRY anime guy, ANIME and not manga, this wouldn't feel like I failed.

DAY 04 - Anime you’re ashamed you enjoyed

I actually had this picture printed out and put in a huge binder of pictures.
I think I still have it...........

Recently, there hasn't really been anything I'm ashamed to have watched. I left my shame behind long ago when I resigned myself to the stages of otakudom, though I've since crawled partially out of that hole due to just changing as I've grown. But before I stopped shoving my fangasming ways into the closet, watching Sailor Moon made me so ugh. I liked it. BUT SO GIRLY. AJDKLJALS

30 Days of Anime )
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!)
*sighs* Well, the census is over. Got the call this morning. Now I have to shower and go turn in my bag, badge, and other random materials.

*waves goodbye to the good money*

But now I'm going to Jersey to see Kris. I'm stocking up on books and tapes and such so I'll have plenty to do. *fist pump* I'm going to enjoy these days off!

*makes sure to remember MP3 charger*

And maybe we can plan the after Otakon trip, too. All I know is we're definitely going to Luray Caverns. Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens maybe. And then Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown... Eh, depends on how many days she's staying.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Fuck You Up)
As much as horrifying Pan on her return from... wherever she went... at the eggs she had carefully plucked being dead would amuse me to tears, I'm going to post them here. So you all click on them. =o=

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

And moving on from there, Tuesday I am either going to be in Newport News for Census work, or New Jersey harassing Kris for a few days. Cheza, if you were 2 hours closer I would be popping up at your house =D; I'm torn as to which one I want most. Census work means MOAR MONEY. And I definitely need it, as it's ending sooner than I had hoped. But a trip up to Jersey may be what I need. Just to get out of the damn house and DO something different.

After Otakon, I think I'm going to go on a site seeing tour around VA. I've lived here most of my life and yet haven't been so so many places. Luray Caverns... And I wanna visit Colonial Williamsburg. I haven't been there since... middle school field trip. Maybe pop up in jamestown or york town. Just... soak in all the history that's around me. Anyone going to Ota who wants to travel down to VA is welcome to join me, as long as I have room in my car, or you have you own >_>;; But Imma be running my own schedule, so if you want to do something different, I will leave you behind if I'm not interested \o
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Doin' the humpty hump)
...must remember.

Hamilton's new book came out. Actually, she released one earlier this year that I knew NOTHING about. WTF is this. From the Anita Blake series, even. So I have two to read when I can snatch them from the library. Oh yes. Guilty pleasure.


The new series I picked up last year, this urban fantasy one from Devon Monk. The next book is out, since May even, and her next one is November. I do love two books a year. Just gotta remember when they come out. >_> Magic on the Storm here I come.


I watched 3 out of the five minisodes for True Blood. I was amused by them all, but the ones with mature content? I'm not signing up to see them. Fuck making more accounts. Too bad they were Sookie and Jessicas. I bet they were funny. :[


I went to the local community college about figuring out what I want to do with my life. I came home and took a few tests. Gave me an interest inventory, says I'm... what was it? Reward, acknowledgment, something like that based> That does not help. B| *filters through the lists*
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Watchin' joo Jon (((O_O))))
The How's My Driving? Meme

And I really need to get on top of sending the Shark that e-mail about events....... and other stuff. But mein gott I can't even keep up with tags half the time. At least I'm not so bad as to leave tags for two weeks. B|

And next week, I only work at the store Sunday and Monday. The rest of the time is mine. ALL MIIINE. Mmmhmm, thats means heavy duty census time. Yeeaaah. *insert cabbage patch dance*

Before they fire me for being unproductive. e__e

And listen to Michael Jackson.

Fuuu I'm bad at remembering things like this.


It's at my comm, [livejournal.com profile] dystopian_flux, so I invite all people on my f-list to come and harass people. Just have fun.

In other news, my store re-opens monday after remodeling last week. I'm going to die. Even if it's only a 6 hour shift. 2/3s of the case is all new stuff. All the codes have been changed and instead of 3 digits, they're all four. And we have people shadowing us for the next two weeks.

Good news: Maybe people will do their jobs when they have People Who Matter watching them all day. Here's to hoping.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sannask, I checked out the Census 2010 site and got the information to try out for the job. I wrote down the info last night so I could call today. Thank Kami I did. I called at 12:40, and they had a time at 1:30, so I was like HELLZ YEAH. This is the last week, so they told me, so my normal procrastination could have lost me a good paying [if only temporary] job. This pays 16.25 an hour PLUS mileage. *so happy* Filled out the paper work, took the test, got a PERFECT score [Mmmhmmmm ] and am now waiting to see if they'll call me to hire. *sobs and pleads to be hired*

Either way, we can do it! *fist bump with Sanna*

I haven't told my mother of this. And I don't plan on it until I either get it or don't. She'll start talking about how dangerous it is, yadda yadda, which is why a lot of jobs I haven't applied for to soothe her paranoia, but screw that. 8|

Oh, and Naruto? B| Try harder Sakura.

...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.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Watchin' joo Jon (((O_O))))
Eastern Promises. I finally got to see it. Mmm, Viggo. And tattoos. I like how it didn't end with them together. I'm tired of those stupid half-asses romance stories thrown in for... whatever reason they have. They did have that attraction thing going on, but hay. He had the bad boy thing going. *shrugs*

Aaaand, my hours at work have been cuuuuutttt. *sobs into my hands* And I have to find new car insurance by June. AND just, another job in general. Don't even know what to do for that, but I need to seriously start searching, right?

My comp decided to be an ass, so I'm on chibi's netbook at mother's. If I'm lucky, my desktop will start up properly when I go home tonight and it was just overheating... even though the green light wasn't on when I started it last time. Srsly, that would suck if it was dead. Bad enough my paid account expired.

And RP!S today? Seriously, too much spare time. Find a better hobby. Please. That whole 'verified comm stealers' part RIGHT before using my post that just said it was all a communication fail? Reading comprehension. Someone lacks it.

Oh, and Reid's slip up? Hilarious. Why? Because it's true. Jump on him all you like, cus someone had to say SOMETHING and be offended, but we all know it's the truth. This political correctness is going to choke the hell out of us.

Note: Why do they always wait until the last minute to send out your W-2? Just because it's DUE on the 31st of January doesn't mean WAIT that long. Same for doing your taxes. Don't wait until the 15th. GD we're a procrastinating country.

It's snowing.

I don't like it. Beware huge images )

It started around 4:30 and hasn't stopped. It... kinda looks more like sleet now than the white fluffy snow. Driving home wasn't so bad, but the roads aren't that safe. I'm supposed to go to work tomorrow at 12:30, and... I kinda just wish we'd be closed, but then what would the point of my extra hours on Wednesday have been for? I guess so that I still get 30 hours if the store is closed tomorrow. I kinda doubt it would be. It's christmas season. Stores are probably sobbing if people decide to be sensible and not go out shopping tomorrow.
