So my brother and his wife showed up today for belated Christmas celebrations. They brought with them their two dogs, two cats, and Christmas gifts.

One of which I had to open immediately. It turned out to be a Williams Sonoma box.

That was meowing.

maybe a six month gap is the new Thing i do with my shit, does it look good

short summation of my brother's wedding from yesterday, without picturesCollapse )

Jan. 18th, 2011

classes started again today, both exciting and also not exciting because it's my last semester. on the other hand, i don't have any theory classes this semester, so that'll be a nice relaxing way to end my comm minor. fuck you theory, from the heart of hell i stab at thee.

need to get to work on re-arranging my resume tonight so that i can send it out on the heels of chasing a couple of internship possibilities. if i'm lucky, i'll land the one that looks kind of legit interesting even if it would involve moving out to vermont for the summer. the fact that i got a response from them at all is a step in the right direction though.

i think i figured out what my problem with roleplaying is, which answers the question as to why i haven't posted in the places i said i would post in like three months ago and why i failed/dropped out of all the games i was in. but i'm not 100% sure so we'll see where that goes.

the school bookstore ran out of my german textbook, and it's the only textbook i can't find anywhere else because it's specifically put together for the course. so that's irritatingly disappointing. can only hope it's available tomorrow or sooner, or else i'm six levels of screwed - given the restocking techniques of this place, though, i think i'm going to have to go with six levels of screwed. i should have busted down the door to try and buy it as soon as i got here this morning ughkglhdk.

So my computer's fan has pretty much stopped working altogether, which is kind of very depressing, because I only got this thing in May. Geek Squad said they didn't have the parts to fix it, so I'll have to send it back to HP and hope beyond hope that they'll replace the fan and then send this exact compy back to me, otherwise untouched. Otherwise I'll have to reinstall all my stuff and this will clearly be a detriment to my entire life, it will be ruinous to me, bluh bluh bluh.

So I'll probably do that tomorrow. Better to have no laptop when I'm on break than to lose it during finals week. Or any time of the school year tbh. I won't be on as much because of it. I'm hoping that it won't take too long for the computer to come back, but given the time of year ... well, it's Christmas on Saturday, so maybe I should wait until next week and hope against hope that the computer doesn't explode before then. WHO KNOWS I will keep you updated.

Which means that I can't do what I was originally planning this week (i.e., play warcraft until my eyes are forcibly rejected by my skull), but I suppose I can use the time to do more productive things, like Christmas shopping and starting to read The Once and Future King so that I don't have to shove it all down my throat when the semester starts.
it seems like i only post bad stuff on here lately

though that was a grand total of two posts last month, so, uh, not really surprising.

Outside of school stuff nothing has really been going on. Cata drops tomorrow, but given the amount of studying and papers I have to get done by next week, I probably won't get a whole lot of time to play it. Still, I'll at least have the box to chew on, which will be some form of comfort especially after the ending of AC:B made me (metaphorically) throw my controller in rage.

Simultaneously looking forward to and desperately not wanting next semester, which is a dichotomy I could really live without. Excited for some of the classes, not excited for graduation. bluhhh

I swear I had a whole bunch of witty commentary to throw up here but I forgot it all between getting off the bus and walking through the snow to the student center. Except that yes, it is winter, I am enjoying it even if it did make my bus 30 minutes late on Friday and left my feet feeling like they would if I lived in a temperate zone more prone to hypothermia.

oh wait

Also, I finally got sick. fucking colds, how do they work

At least it should be gone by finals week(end), that should be nice.

tmi bullshitCollapse )

edit - because either the painkillers received some sort of psychic message and are trying to do something again or walking actually helped. sort of feel better now. appropriate tag added, though i think i should change it to OVERREACTIONS ARE A STAPLE OF MY DIET because they sort of. are.

plz disregard most of this post

Not sure how reliably I'm going to be on AIM for a while, so if you need to get hold of me/shake me for something, drop me an e-mail and I'll probably be able to get back to you faster. Mostly just some RL stuff I need to get organized before I can comfortably get back into the swing of a lot of things; hopefully that'll happen soon.

Homework's been dragging me through the dirt lately, as has getting up way way earlier than I'm used to. Hopefully this will stop being particularly destructive by the end of the month so I can get through my midterms without falling asleep partway through.

blessed be for friends who have PS3s and gamestop connections, who can get me in my sad, lowly, XBox360-owning state into the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer pre-beta.

thoughts and opinions on try 1. no spoilers, but cut anyway. friendslist saving and all.Collapse )

Dearest Ubisoft, fix the clipping problems and all will be well. Or at least let me fall through the world again. I can live with that.
oh wow i haven't updated this thing in over a month.

I'M STILL HERE, just not posting much. My life isn't particularly interesting lately. It's been raining all day and the entire city is under a flood watch, so there's that. Other than that there's just the constant anxiety that for some reason I won't be able to graduate with my comm minor. Or if it'll be any help.

Outside of that things are going as normal. Have given some thought to starting up a game but given my past experiences with modding, this is probably not a good idea.

And now back to the eternal search for food.

oh my god, this tooth is like almost an inch long. how did this fit in my jaw in the first place.

got a wisdom tooth yanked. please remind me next time that, while novocaine is certainly cost-effective, it really does not help to avoid the feeling and sound of having a tooth literally pried out of your mouth.

if i vanish that's the codiene kicking in.

Jul. 18th, 2010

or you know i THOUGHT my internet situation was going to be relatively normal, but i underestimated both my ability to stay awake and the recollection that my extended family loooves to have dinners. SO,UH.

I may be online but fuck if I'll be productive. tonight especially, since I have to finish up a project I should have finished a while back. UH IN ANY CASE, sorry to everyone especially RP bros. Hopefully I can pick things back up ASAP.

Jul. 15th, 2010

SO because i forgot to tell everybody because that is the thing i apparently do, i'm currently in indiana and heading further out east for family visitation times. Since I've got Nyarly now, the internet situation is about 80% better than it has been over the years, so I should still be around, provided the wirelesses don't shatter midair.

It'll only last until wednesday so there you go.

Jul. 10th, 2010

so back like three months ago i declared YEA, I WILL BE SWITCHING MY AIM SCREEN NAME TO DESMOND DANTES

And then I didn't do it.

So, uh. In case you were wondering, that's why it never showed up. I'm going to link it to my regular SN, so never fear, I will still get use out of such a glorious name.

and now back to a month-long forgetting-about-my-lj streak.
oh hello AIM, how nice of you to delete my buddy list and not allow me to add anyone!

If there's one way to get me to preorder a game, it's to offer me a poster.

also i'm awful at taking picturesCollapse )

May. 31st, 2010

Hmmm I don't update this like I used to, ever.

On the other hand I think I'll unofficially be doing the 31_days for next month. I'll be dropping the posts over in my writing journal though, so if you want to have a peek, there's where they'll be. starting tuesday tuesday tuesday.
