Sections completed: 4/13. Some future sections will be shortish, some longer, and I have some advance material prepared. In conclusion: Still whimpering, but not as much. Outlook is cautiously good.

It's a decent distraction from being so lonely up here.

Honest to dog, all I want is information about the history of nonlinear video editors (i.e. Premiere, Final Cut, etc.) IS THAT SO HARD?

Apparently so.

I still have a shitload to do for class and for job hunting, but I'm on track for what I need to do and my marketing prof drastically cut down what I have left for this project. At the end of today, my week is essentially over. (One class tomorrow + classes cancelled for Thursday + no classes Friday) Last night Casey produced some hi-larious slutfic.

Weird trio of dreams last night: I dreamt that 1) [livejournal.com profile] scathachdhu owned a house three doors down from me...in my old neighborhood, 2) that [livejournal.com profile] kudzita and I (she lives several states away) were pondering going to Cedar Point (it's closed for the season), and lastly 3) that I was informed that someone in the fandom of whom I am not fond of had died. And it's not a subconscious wish--my reaction was pretty WTF.

So really, who put the crack in my water supply last night? Yoinks.

Also, it'd probably be rude to write to the author of a mystery novel I just finished and point out all the ways in which it sucked, wouldn't it? Probably.

I have my marketing class twice a week. I knew we had a test this week. I thought that it was on Thursday.

It wasn't.

The Sound and the Fury MAKES MY HEAD EXPLODE.

I might have to paste the bits back together. Yay.

So two days before a revision is due, I finally look at the notes my prof had for my rough draft of the first short story.

He lurved it and wants me to send the final version to a couple of magazines with his recommendation.


Kinda makes up for the fact that the second short story is a bit...not good.  (Or done.  Maybe it'll be better when it's good.)

Ah, I shall smile for a little while before remembering I have three tests in two days and panic again.

You know you go to a very special school when the uni sends out an e-mail about why the air stinks.

Today's the first day of finals. Today ROCKED. No, not because of the finals--I didn't have any today, other than running to East Hall to deliver a technical writing group project. That actually did turn out to be a pain in the ass because of the no-show group member (family emergency, which is understandable, but she could have tried harder to get ahold of us and let us know, but she didn't, so I was still peeved) and surprisingly-bad-writer group member (COMPLETE. SENTENCES. PLZ. KTHXBAI.) so Cool Group Member and I had to get everything together. There are some things I would've liked to have fixed, but overall I'm getting an A, we know she'll lean positively for us, and overall it's still not a bad paper so whatev. DONE.

Today ruled because Becky and I got the first volume of Suikoden III manga. Geddoe! Queen! Chris! Oh yeah, Hugo too. I don't dislike him, but as [livejournal.com profile] dialogue says, he really is just the hero of most RPGs. The young brave teen with leadership qualities etc etc. But hooray! Manga!

I also got these from Claire's. Geek, thy name is Jaina. I don't even cosplay as Utena, and yet I squee. Today I am a black rose duelist because it matches my outfit. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

I've always said that I'll read just about any type of fic if it's really good. Today I'll stand by my words. [livejournal.com profile] rainjewel has been posting some really excellent ficlets/drabbles to [livejournal.com profile] trigun_fics...and they're WolfwoodxVash. She doesn't make me believe in the pairing, really. After reading her fics, if I stop to think about them as a couple, my mind still goes "Nope, don't think so." But while I'm reading, I'm happy to suspend the disbelief because her writing is lovely and she's got some nice characterization. AND SHE DOESN'T MAKE MERYL A BITCH. So happy does this make me.

Incidentally, am I the only one who thinks a community devoted to pairings in a fandom seems odd? It's the name of the community that feels wrong to me, I think. I mean, trigun_relationships, yes--let's talk about the different relationships between characters! Nuances upon nuances! MidvalleyxMeryl 4-evah! Or alt_pairings, for people to come defy conventions. But just...pairings? With no more driving force to it? To me that just seems like a community about...say, food. The difference between a pairing community and the examples I gave above seems like the difference between a food community in which people mill about and are all "Yep! I like food! It's a good thing!" and communities where recipe trades are actively promoted, people are encouraged to share restaurant stories...I'm weird, I know. Maybe this is why I have such trouble with titles.

Cool news from Friday. My mom's friend/co-teacher's daughter is getting married in October, and they want to pay me to take candids at the wedding. I can do that. My reaction to this comes in three stages:

3) EXCUSE TO GET A DIGITAL CAMERA! (You see, I lack a flash on my manual 35 mm)

So, cool. This news came to me via cell phone at Japanese Club's (of which I am nominally a member) Ohanami (cherry-blossom festival) which was big fun despite being moved indoor due to the week's only rain. Rice balls and sesame seeds = yum. And I won a balloon yo-yo. I HAVE DA MAD SKILLZ, YO. And there were cute Japanese kids, which means Eric probably spent half of the time giggling like a schoolgirl. The other half he spent getting his ass kicked in arm-wrestling. (Arm sumo. Snicker.) The less fun part came when I turned around and saw Crazy Girl there. I'm sure my face was pretty funny to see at that exact moment. It's not like I'm a 6th grader who can't be in the same room with her "enemies" (another term I've always found stupid--hostile countries have enemies, not school kids), but I admit to being a bit twitchy. At least next semester, the campus will be cleansed of evil. Of course...I'll still be here next semester, which is not so good. Sigh. I'd really like my degrees and an actual job and to be [livejournal.com profile] fadingembers' roommate. I guess I should stop bitching--if I hadn't found VCT, I'd be done already and with fewer marketable skills than I have now. So yay VCT. *makes perverted flash movies*

Hmm, I should watch my tape of Angel tonight. Don't want to be behind on things when the fabulous, uber-happymaking series finale rolls around. [/sarcasm]
effervescible: (spike - clean and sober)
So for my technical writing class, the final project was a group project. I ended up working with three other people on a comparative analysis of digital cameras (thus fueling my lust for one). It's due tomorrow. We have just about everything done; all that's left is to paste things together (yay!) in the final document and do stuff like table of contents. Group Member 1 will not be there during the pasting because he doesn't get back until tomorrow. Group members 2, 3 and I decided to get together tonight to do it. Group Member 2 had to drive back from Indianapolis today, and we decided that she'd call us when she got back and then meet. She has our phone numbers but I, stupidly, do not have theirs.

No call yet. I should point out that it's a long drive, we didn't say exactly when we'd meet, we've met at later times than this, it's not like I'm going to bed at 9:00 on the dot, and these are smart, good group members; presumably they wish to get a good grade as well, and they've put the work in up to now. The phone numbers of GMs 2 and 3 are not in the student directory (well, their home numbers are, but that is not helpful). I did send and e-mail to them both. No word or phone call yet.

Exactly when can I start freaking out?

[VAL and JAINA approach the doors to the two apartments they may be renting as neighbors next year. JAINA chooses APARTMENT E-5 and knocks. The door opens.]

JAINA: Hi, we might be living here next year and we were wondering if we could look inside.

CRAZY WOMAN: [interrupting] You can't come in. You have to have advance notice.

JAINA: Um, they said we could just knock on doors and see if it was okay.

CRAZY WOMAN: [stares blankly] Well...I guess...come in then. [SHUTS door]

VAL: The hell?

JAINA: Uh...

CRAZY WOMAN: [opens door again] No, you'll have to come back another time, you can't come in.

JAINA: Yeah, we figured.

CRAZY LADY: [shuts door]

VAL: What was that about?

JAINA: I don't know. I'm not living there next year. Bitch vibes.

I'd say she was having sex, but she was fully dressed. Maybe she was about to have sex.
effervescible: (wake me up inside)
I'm feeling well-rested and like I actually know the material. I guess studying really does help. But alas, in order to be un-exhausted for today, I passed up on the chance to see ROTK last night.

I mean...I did make the right decision, right?...right?

*sighs* Ah well, I know Josh will have no problem seeing it with me when I get home.

I'd say wish my luck, but I think I'll save that for the test of EVAL on Thursday. ;)
effervescible: (always a bride)
I got jack shit done on my five-page paper that is due tomorrow. (Thankfully, not until 6; I have time.) However, I did get to spend a lot of quality time with my roommates.

It's all good.
effervescible: (sana moon)
My Interpersonal Communications class was canceleld today--our TA has the flu. For about a minute I debated whether to go home or stay and get some work done so I wouldn't have to later. Then I said "bugger this, I'm exhausted" and slept for an hour and a half.

I feel so much better now.

Really, this is all I've got to say right now. I did have a couple of weird dreams but we'll have to see if I remember them any clearer later.
