Read this now, thank me (and Tumblr) later. It talks about Stark's high school years and he got arrested and it was for the dorkiest white boy reason ever and it basically made me make completely embarrassing squeaky noises in public and JUST READ IT OKAY.

Well, PTA school is going mostly okay so far; I live in constant fear of flunking something and have even had a panic attack or two about it, but I haven't actually flunked anything yet. Actually, I'm starting to finally remember that oh yeah, I'm actually kind of good at school (I'm much better at school than I am at being an adult, anyway).

I just wish that it didn't leave me feeling constantly exhausted and almost completely without time to write or to talk to any of my international friends out there. Even my IRL friendships are on the backburner -- I don't even see Le Boyfriend that much anymore except on weekends and I hate that but at least he's being a relatively good sport about it.

I'm starting physical therapist assistant school tomorrow and it's kind of scaring the crap out of me. I just got the hang of taking care of MYSELF, who in their right mind would entrust me with caring for other human beings?

P.S. - For some clarification, I'm not getting rid of this journal or anything, I just got a Tumblr because that's where seemingly half of fandom has gone and I basically miss you crazy kids.

So I might be getting a Tumblr soon...y'know, just as soon as I figure out what I would actually DO with it since I can't even decide what I want to do with this journal. Yeah. Ideas would be welcome.

Also Star Trek was awesome (yes, even Bandicoot Bandersnatch) and so shippy that Le Boyfriend swears I almost had a stroke during the radiation chamber scene. Meanwhile, I'm eagerly anticipating going to see Epic on Friday so that I can fan girl all over Josh Hotcherson's voice (and also because I'm secretly a giant six year old who still loves animated movies).

How's things?

P.S. - To my complete and utter astonishment, one of my many, many job applications that I fired off into the void actually led to an interview at a local children's hospital last week (I find out next week(ish) if I got the job). Fingers crossed!

Dear Charlaine Harris,

Having just finished the last Southern Vampire Mysteries book, I only have one thing to say: WORST. ENDGAME COUPLE. EVER. I AM DISAPPOINT.

...I will miss your lolzy sex scenes though.

That is all.

I wish I could find something to feel enthusiastic about again, I feel like I've become so detached from everything and I hate it :/ It's like I'm going through the motions but somehow even more apathetic than that. Maybe it's time for yet another GK rewatch? What do y'all do to cheer yourselves up?

Oh well, at least it's pouring down rain outside (I do love a good storm, if nothing else).

Oof. Internets, do any of you ever have days in which the state of the world just makes you hurt? I do, and today's been kind of like that for me. All this Boston stuff on top of everything else just makes me sad for the world.

Anyway, I've been mostly radio silent lately because I just have nothing going on; I have a few strings being pulled on my behalf job-wise, but all of that is moving frustratingly slowly and leaving me with little else to do but sit around and mope. Anything I've managed to write lately has come out sounding utterly depressing and so I wind up deleting it in disgust and just...argh. Everything is frustrating.

On the bright side, I went out on a limb and got The Host to read and I actually kind of don't hate it (I'm as surprised as y'all are). The relationships that seemed so random and confusing in the movie make SO much more sense in the book, plus it's kind of thinky and meditative and basically not totally awful. You win this round, SMeyer.

Internets, you know what sucks worse than not having a job? Try getting a line on one, getting your hopes up about it, and then having said hopes blown to pieces. Basically, one of Le Sibling's friends works for a company that does corporate recruiting and desperately needed an office assistant to do basic filing and other boring office stuff. Being as I've done boring office stuff before, I was encouraged to apply and that I would totally get it as Lon as I didn't tell them that my plans for the next five years weren't going to involve corporate recruiting. I applied yesterday laboring under the delusion I would have a day or two to meet with the friend who works there in order to prepare -- instead, my interview wound up being this morning, forcing me to go into this blind, and in my abject panic I wound up telling the truth.

Naturally, I didn't get the job. I suck at lying under pressure, and being honest was the worst possible move. Since then, I have been sulking and moping and generally feeling pissed off because my own sibling and the goddamn friend left me in the lurch.

P.S. - On a completely unrelated fannish note, I recently found out that Jingletown is actually a real place. See, I thought it was made up for the show/album and so arbitrarily decided that my crossover would have it be located a stone's throw from San Francisco (because reasons).

The real Jingletown is in Oakland, which is just across the bay from San Francisco. Either I made the luckiest guess in the history of fandom, or I'm somehow secretly Jesus.

Internets, have I mentioned recently how incredibly fucking frustrating job hunting is? Everything I find is either a) stuff I'm not qualified for, b) too far, c) not enough work time (I'm sorry, I need more than two days a week or every other weekend), or d) totally unrelated and mistakenly listed in my search results. At this point, I've just set up email alerts on every job hunting site I can find and am now biding my time.

In the mean time? I think it's time to re-watch GK and mainline a whole bunch of Marine documentaries so that I can work on my GK/AI crossover and get SOMETHING productive out of all this bullshit.

Y'know, internets, there was once a time when being depressed inspired the hell out of me and gave me a million things to write, but these days I can't seem to manage more than a few half-formed ideas that never get off the ground/out of my head. It's driving me nuts because, without writing, pretty much all I do these days is scour the Internet for job leads, work on incredibly tedious assignments for an online psychology course I'm taking, and just generally mope about the pathetic state of my life. I can't even be fucked to keep up with the buttload of T.V. shows I like, for crying out loud.

What does one do for doldrums on this grand of a scale? Perhaps a GK rewatch is in order...

I'm honestly amazed that I manage to fail so hard at so many things (like posting, remembering all my things, etc.) and yet still manage to survive in the real world somehow. Seriously, self, get your shit together.

...ahem.

In other news, I'm considering trying a couple of new shows (Suits and possibly How I Met Your Mother), but I already have so many other shows I'm trying (and failing) to follow and two fandoms is already apparently more than I can handle right now as we'll -_- Maybe I'm just paralyzed by indecision? On the other hand, trying something new might jog my inspiration for the old stuff...

Also, it seems like about a third or half of my patients that I see every day have the flu now, and it's actually making me really paranoid and extra germaphobic, but is it a bad sign that I also find a tiny part of my brain thinking "Huh, maybe if I got really sick then I could finally have a legitimate reason to stay home and write."

Clearly I need a vacation.

Fact the First: Being sick sucks.

Fact the Second: Being sick during Christmas sucks.

But...

Fact the Third: Being sick while spending a solid ten hour/extra late workday on your feet when that day also happens to be Christmas Eve sucks most of all.

Send help. Or possibly Stark pictures.

Salutations, internets! I've finally found a night in which I'm not horrifyingly busy or so exhausted that all I want to do is sleep for the rest of forever!

Because my job has more or less completely eaten my life (and turned me into one of those horribly boring people who always steers the conversation back to their job), I recently started daydreaming about having various fandom characters as physical therapy patients and, on the whole, I think it's made my days go by a LOT faster. Brad would constantly push his limits (and probably hurt himself again in the process) and be a major grouch the whole time, Nate would follow instructions beautifully, but I have to concede that my favorite imaginary patient is Ray. Just imagine. ("Dude, what if, instead of bringing in puppies and shit to play with for therapy, hospitals brought you therapy strippers?")

...clearly I need some sort of professional help. Ahem. How are things?

So I want to write a sequel (of sorts) to my Tunny/Will/Extraordinary Girl costume fic in which Tunny finally stops being a chickenshit and agrees to let Will fuck him (instead of the other way around like they usually do). The idea is so firmly lodged in my brain that it's started warping my dreams to my endless delight...

...but the words won't come.

I hate my brain. Halp? I feel like half my flist has departed for greener, Tumblr-ier pastures :(

So you guys will never guess what I went out and bought with an admittedly hefty chunk of my first big girl paycheck.

Hint the first: Look at the tags (or tag, as it were).
Hint the second: It's not my phone.

I GOT MYSELF AN IPAD 2!!!

It's supposed to serve as a temporary stopgap until I can get a new laptop (my current one is starting to get old and battered enough that it deserves a proper retirement), but I also kind of got it as a cool treat for myself since I've been working so hard for the last month (including a ten hour day today x_x) I'm really absurdly pleased with it, mostly because every "futuristic" scene I ever watched in TV/movies growing up showed someone moving things around on a small touchscreen of some kind. All it's missing is the ability to holographically project what I'm doing into the air in front of me (and for me to be able to touchscreen things around in that empty air). I've even kitted this thing out with all the requisite apps for fandoming (LJ, Photobucket, Twitter, GDocs, etc), so maybe I'll finally be able to more readily get back into some writing!

So, to sum it up, it turns out I'm a workaholic and a huge nerd who sucks at fandom (and is very sorry for it). How are y'all?
