So the last month has been a tad busy. My sister moved up here in July and spent the first part of August adjusting, and then my brother visited, and then catching up with work due to taking a week off, there was a slight incident with my car in which my entire front left wheel tried to make a break for it, and I'm leaving for London on Thursday and meeting an awesome friend. So...a tad busy. A tad.

So my hope is upon my return everything will actually calm down. Nothing is planned for a while after that. I have a feeling that, by then, I will be very grateful for a break.

For all those not yet into Welcome to Night Vale, please start. It's awesome.

So my workplace provides tuition reimbursement providing you work there for two years and are willing to continue working for them two years after you finish. It's in my plans, so it works. A co-worker of mine was already attending a school, so since it was already a school I knew would be approved by the county, I enrolled in that.

So my life as a student in a Christian school... )

So today I accidentally marched in the Gay Pride Parade. It was pretty fun, if you ignored the rain. I got to blow kisses at the protesters.
Into Darkness spoilers for those who haven't seen it... )

So current goal is to be somewhat active online, including blogs and linkedin. Let's see how this goes.

Fic writing is going, even if a good chunk of it is glaring, editing, and reviewing to see if I screwed up my own universe/timeline...again. *coughs* In the meantime, scribbling out Star Trek fanfiction because apparently I adore Chris Pine as a young James T. Kirk. I keep looking at him and thinking "Baby Kirk!" ...I think McCoy thinks the same thing.

I actually bought a Men's Health magazine with Chris Pine on the front. True, actually bought it because it had cool articles versus what you find in women's magazines, but Chris Pine's interview is a nice bonus. :)

So I took an unexpected hiatus. I will not go into details, but I will say that January was a Bad Month. Yeah. I'm all for forgetting its existence now. Maybe I got all of the bad energy out in the first month and the rest will be fantastic?

All Giftmas fics were either emailed or mailed (not counting poor Arin's, whose is sitting on my desk now in its envelope). If you didn't get yours, just email or PM me. There is always at least one person who didn't get theirs. *coughs*

Now trying to get back into the swing of things and determine if there's any time I can take off. (Dina, turns out Friday probably won't work, but I'm going to try, anyway.) It's early in the year, but damn I want a vacation.

Still alive. I would like to say I've been busy, but I've mostly been cooing over the new Hobbit movie and the surprise!ship of Thorin/Bilbo, aka Thilbo, aka Bagginshield, and cooing over this surprise!ship on tumblr. I also spent yesterday Giftmas shopping, as I don't celebrate Giftmas until New Year's...which also tends to make me forget Giftmas beyond "I can eat cookies for breakfast without guilt!" and "I can sleep in today!"

Tomorrow, I travel to visit my family. Today, I hang out at home and rejoice in the lovely details of homeownership, like my heater dying. Yep. It died last night, time unknown. I am curled under a lot of covers while my tiny heater rockets up my electricity bill. Yay. I have a warranty, which goes far in paying for everything. Unfortunately, the lovely snow we received last night and this morning stalled off the repairman, but he's finally on his way! Yay!

All fics have been mailed. The ones without mailing addresses will be emailed today. Fics were delayed a tad, but they are on their way! :D

Now back to cuddling under the covers.

So I bought the house on the fifth and moved in on the twelfth. There was a lot of frantic running around both before and after that due to not only packing but getting the apartment cleaned up before the end of the month. But that's not the bad part.

I lost internet when I moved.

I just got it back this past Saturday. I needed to switch internet providers. In the meantime, working on my online class really, really sucked.

Still, victory now? Kinda? Internet, but not wireless. I'm debating if I should try for wireless. Being limited as to where I can get on the net should make it easier to write.

On the writing note....Giftmas time. I'll make a post tomorrow about it. It's late and I've spent the last month completely slammed, as well as already working on some fics, but I want to at least do drabbles. If nothing else, my writing has been pushed down to the bottom of my priority list lately, and I would love to do drabbles to exercise the old mental muscle. I'll do a post for those who want drabbles tomorrow and try to mail them all out next week. :)

So, after an insane amount of work to have everything perfect for the underwriters, I now own a house. I'm still packing and plan on moving in on Monday. Holy shit. I have a house. A gorgeous house in a good neighborhood with lots of places for walking purposes and room for my lovely babies to be able to stretch their legs...not that it will matter. They're all within three feet of me now, two sleeping and one cleaning.

Certain fics are in progress, just momentarily stalled until the move is done. I am a little stunned by not only the sheer amount of books I own compared to everything else in the apartment but also where I hid all my books. I now want to go through and reread a lot of them.

I have decided that buying a house/moving and online classes at the same time seriously sucks. Still, everything should be much calmer soon. :) And the new location will also provide me a lot more free time, as it's so much closer to work. *^__^*

What's your point?

As I crosspost this to LJ, fuck you, LJ. It's hard to tell when I have real comments and when I am just getting spammed. :P

On an RL ADHD/meds note... )

On my final ADHD note, I still plan on taking the glowy bouncy ball Hadesphoenix was so nice as to give me and throw it at my next family reunion. It's a good plan. :D

Now back to caffeine and ficcage.

Thanks so much for everyone with their help with the Home Project! You guys are so awesome for taking the time and money to help. For those of you who didn't comment or email me with what fic you would like, feel free to comment here or just message me.

Closing is October 25th. I need to be moved completely out of this apartment by November 30th. Angel is going to have the basement to herself while I'm gone at work. I'm going to need to make sure she has a type of nest down there so she doesn't get cold, but it's set up so if she can't hold it until I get home (she is fourteen), it'll be very easy to clean.

I'm finally going to be able to use incense. This thrills me. This apartment is so small the cats can literally get everywhere. The house is big enough that I can put up shelves and be confident the cats won't be able to reach. I also want to be able to put in a secret room...somehow. I know I can find a way.

Now let's see if Missy will let me work on fics...

I am currently taking a mental health/sinus pressure day. For those of you who do not work with social workers, if we suspect you are using marijuana, lighting every imaginable type of incense before our arrival is not going to help your case. Still, this means I have a day for drugs, spicy food, and typing.

Along with an agonizing field screen over the weekend, I also had my home inspection. The house is 73 years old and is still in good shape. I snagged my uncles and we accompanied the inspectors through the house. I had my phone on in my pocket. My ringtone is Legend of Zelda. My ringer for notifications is purely FFVII-based.

It's Sephiroth telling Cloud in the AC movie "I will bring you despair."

We're in the basement of this old house examining its dark corners, and every now and then, the younger inspector and my uncle would hear I will bring you despair. I didn't think twice about it, nor looked at my phone. I was focusing on what the inspector was telling me. Unfortunately for them, my phone was very busy at that time. All they heard, over and over again, was a soft male voice whispering from an unknown area I will bring you despair.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen: Sephiroth officially terrified two people on Sunday. His reign of terror is neverending.

I had a plan today. I was going to take my laptop to Starbucks, drink my weight in calories and caffeine, and actually Work on Stuff.

...I've caught up on Tumblr and listened to the Prince of Egypt soundtrack a couple times on Youtube.

Watch me go.

Edit: As someone who has been sitting in Starbucks for almost three hours, I can tell you that Pumpkin Spice Latte is above and beyond the most popular drink today.

As I'm trying to type this, Missy is calmly strolling across my chest and is trying to make herself comfy.I am sitting up. I disagree with her course of action. Ow.

So today I decide to stop at the grocery store and ended up buying four items. These items all had a specific meaning and purpose:

Cheese popcorn -- to eat this weekend while I have a Dead Zone marathon. Hee!

Cookies -- so I can feel like a true member of the Dark Side.

Alfredo sauce -- so I can swirl my noodles around and cackle, yet feel semi-classy, while reading my collection of books on the occult tonight.

Wine -- see above...and that particular brand is an avid LGBT supporter.

Yeeees...it's all coming together now...

I meant to be a little further today than this. I am finally working on my class for the day and I am about to work on writing. I also finally just ate dinner. We won't discuss my last meal.

I read a lot of motivational and business-oriented books. I plan on being rich and successful, dammit. There is a common theme to pretty much all of them and many of the other books/radio shows/etc. I've come across...including my own job. That theme? Try to be good and use your gifts to help others. I thought about this as I snooped around Barnes and Noble with my shiny new gift card. While I was looking for a book on how to be a supervillian/evil sorceress/etc.

I contemplated practicing my evil laugh but decided to glare at a guy and his pack of children instead. After that, I stopped tripping over him and his fifty million children. I felt triumphant.

Now I should actually get to work. Bah.
tir_synni: (Default)
If I say I'm a very busy person and the first thing you ask is "Oh, do you have kids?" I want to hit you. Hard. Or cut you. Except I wear my good clothes for work and bloodstains are a bitch to get out.

Don't tell me pets aren't distracting and that's a lousy excuse. I've spent the last forty minutes doing epic battle with my cat while trying to do schoolwork. She's still here, staring and purring. She has claws. Yes, she's fucking distracting. For all those who have never had a cat and tell me to toss her out of the room? You can pay for the damages to the door.

Also, the next time someone tells me that I have such and such time to do such and such activity because I don't have kids? I know enough forensics to ensure no one ever finds your body. I'm also small and blond and adorable. No one will ever blame me.

Thank you.

So I have been a tad busy lately and writing has fallen by the wayside. There has been house-hunting, my first week of online classes, many visits with my uncle, and I joined a writer's group (which seems like it's going to be a blast). I have been trying to write, but I don't think anything serious will happen until tomorrow...provided I can buy coffee creamer. COFFEE OR DEATH!

So...on a childfree note... )

Vacation is over. Tomorrow, back to work. I'm already back in the land of people looking at you funny for talking fandom. Woe, woe.

Overall, it was a fantastic vacation, and I can't wait to see what we do next year. Now it's time to try to type up fic. Yes, Calypso, that means you need to move. No, really. *sighs*
tir_synni: (Default)
Remind me it comes with two weeks of vacation.

Taking care of everything today and leaving tomorrow. I have at least two people who are relatively sure I'm going to my death. Whee! I'll be back at the end of the month. XD
