Assorted friends/acquaintances through life: Hey, Allie, how come you never go out in shorts? Doesn't it get hot wearing jeans all the time?
[Later, when I wear shorts to humor them even though I know what's coming…]
Same friends/acquaintances: Wow, your legs are really pale! *gawking, staring, generally freaking out like they don't know I'm basically a cave creature*
Me: Wow, you just answered your own question(s)

And then some time passes, people forget, and it starts over again. Repeat ad nauseum. Am I the only person who has to deal with this, or is it just a #gingerproblems sort of thing?

In other news, I checked after uploading my most recent batch of gifs and it turns out I now have 925 gifs/macros, so I'm probably going to do a gif swap post pretty soon. It lets me delude myself into thinking that I'm being productive when I have, in actuality, done next to nothing recently but fuck around in one form or another. I mean sure, RL periodically forces me into brief bouts of responsibility still (errands, packing/moving, etc.), but in terms of average productivity? I got nothin'. The worst part? The neurotic overachiever in me still feels horribly guilty about this for some reason.

Oof. Internets, my apologies for being such a nonentity 'round these parts lately. The rapidly approaching end of the semester is typically when professors have that "Oh shit" moment and pile on all the extra quizzes, exams, assignments, etc. that they should have spaced out better in order to round out their syllabus without killing off a student or three.

In other words, I'm kind of ridiculously overworked and stressed out and have a lot of non-school-related things on my mind as well, which doesn't really leave much energy left for fandom or internetting in general. But enough excuses, have a few bullet points of what I've been up to lately in between mountains of work:

• I saw The Raven with Le Boyfriend last night; it was actually decently entertaining once you got past John Cusack occasionally ingesting potentially dangerous amounts of scenery.
• I've been keeping up with Glee, Hart of Dixie, Mad Men, and NYC-22 and I actually have a lot of #feelingz about all of them but have just been utterly shit about writing them down to post up here later *facepalm* Anyone who wants to talk about them at me is welcome.
• I started watching (and promptly got addicted to) Lie To Me and The Walking Dead (the latter at behest of a coworker of mine). I like TWD so much that I've even started reading the comic books, which probably means I'm in the process of turning into even more of a giant nerd as we speak.
• My body is so unbelievably ready for The Avengers that it's not even funny (it comes out this week omg omg omg omg *flails*)

And that's pretty much it. How are y'all? I've been keeping up with the flist, but feel free to tell me anyway -- I'm feeling chatty and in desperate need of a distraction :D

Also? GIF!

Le Boyfriend tells me we managed to have an entire conversation (that made zero sense) last night while I was basically half-conscious -- I don't remember any of this and am distinctly paranoid about what I might have said…

Anyway, I haven't updated recently because I've been kept so busy that I just didn't have the time or the energy. That being said, let's talk movies!

Things I've seen recently:

Chronicle (I was disappoint as a GK fangirl to see Patterson being the abusive asshole dad in this *sigh*)
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (So cracktastic and insane that I refuse to acknowledge it as a Ghost Rider movie)

Things I want to see:

Safe House (Denzelllll <3)
Act of Valor (LIKE BURNING)
The Hunger Games (AGAIN, LIKE BURNING)
The Dark Knight Rises
The Avengers (Because I want to mash Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth together like Barbie dolls)

Which reminds me! Have a humorous video about Marvel movies that my coworker showed me the other day )

Meanwhile, back on topic…

Things I kind of want to see:

This Means War (I'm willing to suffer through what Reese Witherspoon considers acting if it means I get Chris Pine and Tom Hardy pulling each other's pigtails snarking at each other in the same movie)
The Secret World of Arrietty
Wanderlust


It's gonna be a good year to go to the movies, y'all.

P.P.S. - I made a B on my first Therapeutic Modalities/Rehab test (which I barely studied for) \o/ Not bad considering I know for a fact that the professor actively dislikes me (she's part of the university athletic training program that rejected me...twice).
emerald_skies: (Default)
Sigh. Let me tell you, internets, the last few days have been crazy, culminating in the giant clusterfuck that was yesterday in its entirety. For starters, I've had a pretty nasty cough for the last couple of days and it finally succeeded in making my voice give out last night. I now sound like I've been smoking like a chimney for thirty years. I could go on to mention the test I had this morning, or how my normally 20-25 minute drive home from my internship took JUST OVER AN HOUR last night because of a fucking car wreck on the freeway, but then we'd be here all day. Instead, have some rambling about my internship!

My physical therapy knowledge is pastede on yay )

On a tangentially related note, it's always deeply depressing to realize that you know how to work/interact with patients better than your professor. My Obesity & Weight Management professor has been rambling on about eating pattern problems and shit (eating a ton at dinner because you didn't eat in the afternoon, blah blah blah) and she never once mentions taking peoples' differing circumstances into account. Some people (*raises hand*) just don't have time to eat in the afternoon. A good healthcare professional of any stripe should understand that everyone is different -- I don't get why this is so fucking hard for some people to understand in my line of work.

ANYWAY, I'm now over the worst of my week in terms of workload, I just have to make it through the next four hours of classes...and my afternoon shift at work. I'm only running on five hours of sleep. And I get to go to a morning staff meeting (for my tutoring job) on Saturday.

So a certain goddess-like flistie who shall remain nameless (*coughcough*[livejournal.com profile] eiirene*coughcough*) sent me something this morning that I think we could all appreciate. Feast your eyes, my fellow GK/AI/general Stark fangirls, on some truly quality hand/arm/tattoo porn:

Photobucket

This was the exact face I made when I clicked the link in her message:

Photobucket

I'm not going to say how LONG I had that look on my face because it's just embarrassing.

In other news, internets, y'all remember how excited I was when I realized I have neither class nor work nor my internship on Fridays? And how I thought this would give me ALL the extra free time? Oof, I was way off -- my schedule runs me so ragged now that I usually spend Fridays sleeping off the rest of the week. If this is what it's like to be an adult, then all the more reason to consider doing a Van Wilder and staying in college for another 3-4 years *headscreen*

Finally, on a totally unrelated note, Le Boyfriend and I saw The Woman in Black yesterday (because we love us some horror movies and I love me some DanRad). From my Facebook:

"The Woman In Black, a period horror piece that mostly resorted to jump scares (as you do in horror movies these days), but kept some of them subtle and timed them well enough to build fairly decent suspense. Plus all the bonus footage of Daniel Radcliffe brooding picturesquely off into the distance, probably about how hard it is to be richer than God. A solid 7.5/10, and actually worth the movie ticket price."

Anyone else here seen it? What'd y'all think?

P.S. - The Superbowl is tomorrow and, for once, I give precisely zero fucks about it. Why, you ask? Because I'm sick to death of ESPN worshipping the Patriots (and Tom Brady) and Eli Manning (of the Giants) just annoys me on general principle and okay, I'm more than a little bitter about how the Cowboys did this season because COME ON NOW. I think I'll be watching the Puppy Bowl this year for the sake of my blood pressure.

So, as some of you might have noticed, I've been sweating a lot over getting my internship for next term sorted out. In dealing with all this crap, I've found myself thinking about the (somewhat more) immediate future lately, and so far all it's doing is giving me a massive tension headache.

This got kind of ramble-tastic... )

Now let's pretend I'm not in a giant slump/funk and flash forward to a few years when I might be allowed to do something I actually give a shit about. I find myself at something of a crossroads on what precisely I want to do.

This thought process can also be called 'yet another sign it's time to step away from fandom for a while'... )

*sigh* I don't know if it's my hormones/brain chemistry going out of whack again or what, but it's getting harder to make myself get out of bed and keep pushing through all this shit. I'll probably get over it (I usually do), but these days I'm just so fucking tired...

Howdy, internets! My sincerest apologies for dropping off the face of the Earth, I got sucked into studying for two tests this past Friday (one was a disaster, another was challenging but I'm not sure how I did) and shit for my job and trying to sort out my internship and just...real life basically went through round 84930392084 of kicking my ass. Again. But, then again, I suppose one's last year of university is supposed to be hellishly difficult and labor intensive...hm.

To make up for it, have some comment fic [livejournal.com profile] looleebelle and I have been working on in response to [livejournal.com profile] pjvilar's prompt in which Nate makes a deal with the devil -- or, in which [livejournal.com profile] looleebelle and I torture the everloving shit out of Nate. I highly recommend it for any angst fiends out there in search of a fix.

So shit's been pretty insane lately, but this weekend, by contrast, has been uneventful. I guess I needed it to recover from this past week, but still, I think this gif sums it up pretty nicely:

Photobucket

I guess I should enjoy it while it lasts, because I have another test this week and a group project due as well (different class than the test). I don't have high hopes for either, especially considering how fucking useless my group has been for the latter and how the professor seems to think this is all somehow my fault. Sigh.

And to think, the sickening irony of this is that I'll probably miss the shit out of university once I've been out in the real world like a motherfucking adult for a few years.

Ugh, it figures that my muse would pick this week to come back with a vengeance -- I have two midterms and find out whether or not I got the internship I applied for, plus I'm booked solid at work. And yet? I've been working on the GK/AI crossover since last night.

Oof, I'm fucking finally finished (crikey, try saying THAT three times fast) with this week. FINALLY. I think this gif sums up my #feelingz pretty nicely:

Photobucket

So, in "surprising developments" related news, I realized recently that, once my next paycheck clears in a week or two, I'll be able to ditch my current phone and get myself an iPhone! I'm pretty pumped, partly for the general gadget appeal but mostly because this means I will never, EVER be without internet access again.

Ugh, watch me get addicted to Angry Birds now, on top of everything else.

Also in the "surprising developments" department, I was poking around on my university's website recently and discovered that, provided I don't flunk any of my classes in this term or the next, I'll be graduating Cum Laude. Hell, if I make straight As again like I did last term, there's a microscopic chance I could swing Magna Cum Laude. Idk, it seems silly now that I talk about it, but it just surprised me because I started college thinking there was no way I could swing graduating with any sort of honors, so I just resolved not to even think about it. I guess this is proof that you shouldn't sell yourself short.

Anyway, I just have to survive two and a half more days of internetlessness and then I can set about to rejoining fandom (and hopefully getting rid of this little eyetwitch I've developed irl...) I'm pissed that I'm going to be missing yet another re-watch (*sigh*) more than anything else. Plus I want to try dipping my toe back into the Glee fandom by actually, y'know, making an effort to keep up with the watch-a-long posts.

And finally, on a totally unrelated note, I have a question for y'all. In the course of my tutoring work, I've been faced with a LARGE number of students who need help because English isn't their first language, and I find these cases especially challenging and headache-inducing. So my question is this; does anyone around here with experience in English as a second language (either teaching it or learning it) have any useful tips/advice to offer so I can help these students better? I'd really appreciate just about any insights at this point.

So y'all saw me walking by and decided to grunt/breathe/etc. much louder, apparently in some sort of attempt to look extra manly or something. Good on you.

Thanks for the much-needed laugh,

Blargh. So I just got out of the first test in my Drugs & Behavior class and I'm not feeling super confident about how I did. Mostly because there were a gazillion questions about the central/peripheral/autonomic/somatic/sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system and I've never been able to keep all that shit straight. I guess the world's lucky I don't want to be a neurologist...

Anyway, on an unrelated note, how are y'all? I used to talk to a bunch of you outside LJ but now it feels like you've all disappeared. I still love you guys and miss the hell out of you, I'm just internetless and getting my ass kicked by real life at the moment. Come back to meeee *grabby hands*

On the bright side, my muse may be coming back -- it stirred with the ghost of an idea for the GK/AI crossover while I was taking my test. The idea died before I could get out of the test and write it down, but that's still a good sign, right? Right?

This random hedgehog thanks y'all for your time:

P.P.S. - So I heard Lea Michele and Theo Stockman split recently. Is it sad that I was kind of gleeful about it because this means Theo can creep on Esper and Stark everyone without looking entirely like a gigantic jackass?

Oh dear lord, internets, whatever you do, do not assume your life is looking up just because things briefly suck less. I jinxed the fuck out of my life by making that exact mistake *facepalm*

In which emerald_skies bitches about her life (again) (cut for those who are sick to death of listening to me whine) )

The bright side in all this is that Le Boyfriend and I now have our kitty up in university-land with us! \o/ Sure, she has this thing where she likes to wake us up at 5:30 in the morning to get fed for her morning session of zooming around Le Flat at Mach 2, but all in all her presence is a giant improvement.

Now I just have to survive another test (tomorrow), two tutoring shifts, an appointment with my adviser (to clear up a clusterfuck I don't even want to talk about right now), and my lab on Friday. And then I get to stay home next Monday since the cable guy is coming to hook up our T.V./interwebs.

On a totally unrelated fannish note, the Small Fandom BigBang is coming, and I'm seriously considering looking into signing up the GK/AI crossover (since I love the idea of having art/a mix for it and I've never actually done a BB before). Good idea? Bad idea? Are you even allowed to sign up a piece you've already started? I have no fucking clue about these things, honestly.

Howdy, internets, just dropping in for a minute to say that I'm not dead, just busy. Horribly, ridiculously, soul-crushingly busy (because next week is the week before finals and the professors like to pile shit high and deep right about now). It's made me tired enough that I've passed out asleep at 10:00 p.m. more than once in the last week (which, for someone who normally goes to bed around midnight, is a big deal), plus I really hate how much it's cutting into my fandom/internet time lately :\

Me these days....

Long story short, my life would be so much easier if I could just live in the internet forever.

On the bright side, I got to spend the afternoon watching Jason X (hilariously bad) and playing with Le Boyfriend's and my bb!kitty (hilariously adorable) over at Les Neighbors', so things aren't as bad as they could be. In the mean time, I promise I'll get a real post up some time before doomsday *facepalm*

So American Idiot closed last night. I was getting all set to make a post about it, but I realized that I basically said all my goodbyes when the original cast started leaving en masse (and when Stark left), and that I didn't really have anything else to add. Obviously, I'm sad to see a show that was such a life-changer for me winding down like that, but what're you gonna do? That's showbiz. The thing that depressed me the most about the show closing was that it made me miss the original cast all over again (because really, there's no way to top them).

(True story: I was noodling around with my camera last night and actually got a bit *ahem* misty eyed when I stumbled across my photos of the St. James from the NYC trip. God, I'm such a hopeless fangirl...)

Oh! On a tangentially related note, anyone who wants to make me write stuff about various American Idiot characters/pairings is fully encouraged to go here and make a request (the "rules" are stated in the post). I still have to answer [livejournal.com profile] pau494's prompt about Whatsername...shit.

And the questions that came with it... )

I know, I know, I'm just fascinating. In any case, stay tuned for (hopefully) more vamp!fic, probably more ranting about my classes, and possibly (hopefully) a snippet or two out of the GK/AI crossover to tide y'all over while I keep working on getting Tunny through boot camp.

So, internets, I have something of a conundrum on my hands. Based on the following symptoms, I can't tell if I'm getting sick or if my chronic stress-a-holic tendencies are starting to cause me physical harm:

1) My head hurts constantly (my neck occasionally hurts too)
2) My stomach hurts most of the time (it's probably bad that I'm in my early twenties and find myself taking chewable antacids multiple times per week)
3) I have no desire (or energy) to do anything that involves getting out of bed
4) I'm constantly exhausted regardless of how much sleep I get

Then again, it could conceivably be a mix of both (stress and sickness often go hand in hand in a vicious FML sort of way).

But here's what makes it better: A group term project in one of my classes is going to make my life a living hell for the next two and a half weeks at least. AT LEAST.

And that's not including my other classes.

Photobucket

Ultimately, I've decided that, should I manage to keep my straight A's through the end of the semester, I will be treating myself to these (something tells me Ray-Ray would approve).

Also, on a brighter note, I just had this text exchange with my neighbor (the one who's looking after Le Boyfriend's and my kitten):

Neighbor: We have discovered the joys of ponytails and paper grocery sacks
Me: Who? Sally?
Neighbor: Yup
Me: She'll love [Le Boyfriend] then (his ponytail is still one of [my current cat]'s favorite cat toys)

Poor Le Boyfriend...

Finally, so this post won't be entirely bitching about how my life sucks (and because it will cheer me up), have a small Die Mommie Die gifspam:

There's crazy...and then there's Lance Sussman... )

Okay, so it wasn't that small, but really, I fail to see how that's a bad thing.

Appropriate gif is appropriate

And so, in order to stave off the boredom (and the tension headache that is rapidly turning into a migraine), a couple of things:

And blah fuckin' blah... )

Thing the third that I just remembered: I was hanging out with an old friend from grade school last night/this morning and we wound up watching Day of the Dead. Yes, that one. Guess which one of us cooed/loled more over the adorkability that is Bud? (If you guessed me, you'd be wrong XD)

Also, there was this conversation:

Friend: "What?! Why the fuck doesn't Bud get to be a cheating ceiling-crawling zombie?!"
Me: "Because he is being karmically punished for gushing about how hot Mena Suvari is TO HER MOTHER?"
Friend: "I thought that's what the goofy monkey faces were for..."

Plus the bonus discussion of whether or not Bud's fate meshed with traditional horror movie rules; we agreed that anyone that awkward would probably be a virgin -- and thus survive -- but the whole ridiculously good-looking thing probably got him laid at some point and thus...yeah. Poor Bud.

Internets, I am such a glutton for punishment, it's just getting ridiculous. Why, you ask?

Well, here's what my to-do list looks like right now.

- Organize some sort of fangirl meet-up for the New York trip
- Organize a Die Mommie Die watch post over in [livejournal.com profile] stark_sands (which means not completely failing at timezones and whatnot)
- Finish Le Batfic
- Post more Picking Up The Pieces (which actually involves writing more of it)
- Finish and post Glee reactions (which were supposed to go up early today but schoolwork had other plans)
- Finish and post Supernatural reactions
- Pack everything for the New York trip
- Plan more things for Le Boyfriend and me to actually DO in New York
- Study enough for finals (next week gfjkdhkghfkjhjkgnfdjk) that I don't flunk
- Schoolwork, which includes:
1) A term paper for Sports Nutrition
2) Writing and giving a presentation for my Physiology of Exercise term paper
3) A boatload of assignments (and the final) for my online Spanish class
4) MORE TUTORING

And a whole bunch of other shit I'm probably forgetting. This is my general demeanor at the moment:

So, internets, as a few of you may know (and empathize with), I have a rather love-hate relationship with Facebook. Today, it's largely hate. Why? Two things:

1) I saw this as a status update:

"[Girl from high school who barely spoke to me but wanted me to be friend # 48938673 anyway] casual family vacay in morocco. camels ftw ;)
10 hours ago via Facebook for Blackberry"

A casual family vacation in MOROCCO. Posted from a Crackberry, no less. For comparison, I've been saving for months just to buy myself a mid-level digital camera (as a long-term investment). Fuck my broke-ass college kid life.

2) Dear fellow college student that I've never even seen face-to-face,

Stop suggesting that I 'Like' things. I mean it. I do not give a shit about half the things you suggest I like and yet you continue suggesting anyway. Also, I swear to Raptor Jesus I'm going to find you and reduce you to your component molecules if you send me another Farmville/Mafia Wars/etc. invitation.

If not for your funny status updates and occasional relevant posts in your capacity as a journalist for the university student newspaper, I would have de-friended you months ago. So seriously, take it down a notch.

--[livejournal.com profile] emerald_skies


I swear, if it wasn't a useful tool for keeping up with my extended family and the few people from high school that I actually did talk to, I would delete my Facebook and save myself the trouble.

Also, to the random guy in my Sports Nutrition class who yanked one of my headphones out to speak to me; WHAT THE SUGAR-FROSTED FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?! What bizarro-land did you come from such that you think it's okay to invade my personal space when neither of us even knows the other's name? I can't even-- just no. Please reconsider invading strangers' personal space in the future, because I can pretty much guarantee other people won't be as "nice" as I was.

On the bright side, I have no classes on Monday (woo! 3 day weekend!) so I can catch up on a) all the sleep I've been losing to tutoring and schoolwork, b) all the crap I promised I'd post on here, and c) FIC!

In the mean time, I'll just be back in this post rolling around in all the pretty.

I really think you've covered body composition/body mass index enough. I've had to calculate my own % body fat/BMI three times in the last two weeks -- I get it, I could stand to lose a few pounds. Enough already, it's starting to seem like a conspiracy now.

Sincerely,

What has two thumbs, red hair, and an 81 on the Exercise Physiology test she was sure she failed?

THIS GIRL, THAT'S WHO!

I might actually manage to keep a C in this class -- which means my GPA won't tank like I thought it was going to -- and the New York trip is in 18 days (due to a very long story, we're leaving on the morning of the 18th instead of the evening of the 17th).

I just have to get through the next two and a half weeks of my own personal ninth circle of academic Hell first.

BUT WHO CARES? I'M NOT GONNA FAIL! fjdklajgkadjtklhjkglfjdauwietlkmd Please excuse me while I boogaloo.

Oh dancing soldier, you punctuate the gleeful moments of my life so well. Get down with your bad self!

Also, I just spent the last five and a half hours helping my severely dyslexic study buddy (from Sports Nutrition) set up/write two major papers. Two things:

a) Oh God my brain hurts (she's smart, but jfc she can't write worth a damn).
b) I really hope I get some insanely awesome karma points for this.

How nice she was to me about my help made everything better though :)

All in all, it's been a strange day. Since I was begged to do more tutoring of the same study buddy tomorrow and Thursday (and possibly Friday) and I have a paper of my own that I'm supposed to be working on, things might get a bit slack around here (except to post more Batfic and/or Starsgard fic to break the monotony).

P.S. - Dear Ex. Phys. professor,

What was with that funny look you gave me after you handed my test back? I refuse to believe that you've been teaching for thirty years and have never in all that time seen a student do a victory dance before.

Just sayin',

All right, internets, here's the deal.

Basically, between my computer fucking up the file and the fact that my free time keeps disappearing into the ethers, I'm going to postpone my reaction posts until my Thanksgiving break (which starts on Wednesday night). I could throw something short and crappy together really fast, but I want to do this shit right, which makes it a lot more time consuming.

Feel free to judge the shit out of me, I already feel pretty stupid about it as it is :-\

In the mean time, have a half-part (or a short full part, as it were) of some more Batfic as an apology:

Summary: A short little interlude in which Nate and Brad do their level well best to charm the pants off each other. Possibly literally.

Nate sips green tea in his favorite little Japanese restaurant... )

I decided on a spur of the moment impulse to try out that preview thing. Love it? Hate it/think it's unfair teasing? Let me know! Hope y'all like the rest in the mean time :)
