bending_sickle: (Shitty day)
Have some more of that life and employment crap. Read more... )

So I've been feeling like crap today. The only good thing is that unlike yesterday's three-hour walk about town looking for goddamn cards to send to darlings, today I found awesome cards at, hilariously enough, the same bookstore chain I tried two of yesterday and it only took me two hour and most of that was me staring at the cards and trying to figure out if people I hardly know will like them or be offended (although how one can be offended by reindeer, I don't know). Anyway, I got cards and it's awesome. Some even have glitter.

I haven't made much progress on sprucing up Time 3. (Sorry [livejournal.com profile] seschat! I need to write a missing-scene-that-really-ought-not-be-missing and a meme-drabble and then fight with Word's pagination and then edit it for the free proof and and five copies) thing. What the fuck am I going to do with five copies of what is basically half a novel and I'm not even that pleased with it? Or, well, with three copies, 'cause two I know what to do with. But argh. Five. Maybe in a few years I'll throw them all together into an omnibus, or maybe even an anthology of stories and novels, but this year is not that year because shit still needs to be written. Damnit, Time 3, why you not end?! ...maybe I can resolve it in the Time 0 novel I want to write. Like, instead of flashbacks being the tid-bits, flashforwards as the little extras. Oooooh, two birds might have just hit the ground!

Aaand I'm going to go off and watch something wholesome or funny or whatever, because my head, my heart, my gods... Don't quite know what I'll watch, because we're entering that period of "everything's on hiatus!" which is the curse of the holidays. Except Sherlock, which is apparently a few weeks away, and Doctor Who, which is love and coming for Christmas.

As an aside, I can tell I'm getting older because suddenly an average of six hours of sleep a night for the week doesn't kill me (until around 10:30 pm, after which I am dangerously close to the dozing-off range). How so awake, body? (I still pack the hours in on weekends, though.)

Enough ramble. I'm not sure if this or my long-stretches of silence-and-links is better.

Quotes of the Day: 1) [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda, here and 2) Denis Leary
Because even when you grasp the idea that depression is an ailment and not a personal failing... it still feels like a personal failing. You know you're clinically depressed, but you feel like you're just lazy, lonely, hopeless, pathetic. Or sometimes you don't realize you're ill, because those feelings of anxiety and shame and helplessness sneak up on you and feel legitimate, and that's why you don't realize you need help. [...] Because your sadness and fatigue and anxiety feel mild at first, and they seem like rational responses to things going on in your life, and then you end up missing some deadline or not completing some goal or not living up to your own expectations because you're already sad and tired, and then the negativity does seem justified: "I'm not depressed; I'm a loser."

Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills but you work hard for thirty-five years and you pay it back and then -- one day -- you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, you have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth and drool but you go into rehabilitation and regain the power to walk and the power to talk and then -- one day -- you step off a curb at Sixty-seventh Street, and BANG you get hit by a city bus and then you die. Maybe.

...yeah, so I haven't been posting regularly in a while, and that's one part work sucking all my time and energy, one part Tumblr, and one part of "not much going on". Most of my day consists of work, which is currently being mind-numbingly dull, and the rest of it is spent trying not to melt in the unbearable heat. I still post a bit of fanart over on Tumblr, and I've been watching Season 1 of White Collar, which is awesome. It just feels like most of the time I'm desperately trying to keep up with all the things I want to do and just barely keeping my head above water.

Hence the massive LotD below. And the lack of Original Fiction Meme.

Sweet monkies onna vine! My Special Hell Fanart is making the rounds on Tumblr \o/ People like! *dances*

Also, I wrote fics. Plural. X-Men: First Class's J'aboude and Supernatural's Promises and Pie Crusts. Crossposting will happen - eventually - at least for the Sueprnatural one. I'm just as shocked as y'all are that I actually finished something. Now, there's that fic I've got dying on my harddrive since last October...

Now, excuse me, I have to look through every Mark Sheppard tumblr thing ever. NOW. Ngh.

Sickle's Summary of Random Things:
  • I'm still on my Bufy the Vampire Slayer rewatch kick and keep discovering things. Like I was watching I Robot, You Jane (1x08, IMDB) and who should I see, all wee and mullet-less, but Chad Lindberg! By which I mean, Supernatural's Ash! And he's still a computer geek genius! \o/

  • I'm slowly getting the hang of socializing-through-coffee. Last week I had coffee with my supervisor's peer - the hierarchy details, they fail me - which was nice, and today I had coffee with someone I'd sent my CV a while back and we talked about other organizations that might be interesting, which was also nice.

  • Socializing-through-lunch seems to be a big thing, too. Last week I was pretty awesome at having lunch with people, and it's how I met a guy who thinks techno is the highest form of music ever made by man, which, okay, and how I learned that the cute I like talking to is nineteen which, um, ah. *backs away slowly*

  • I also had lunch with my supervisor, which was less of a socializing thing and more of an info-dump accompanied with my panicked internal monologue going, "I have no idea what you're talking about. You want me to do what? Do you want me to do that? Wait, what, that too? But the other thing, that is being done by someone else? But I'm going to do- WHAT IS GOING ON?!?" so that was intimidating.

I got a Tumblr account because apparently this way if anyone changes their URLs again then they won't be lost to me. Bastards.

In other news, and as evidence that I only got Tumblr for the Dashboard, have some Supernatural and True Blood fanart, both with just a hint of Firefly, because why finish projects when I can just make new ones? *sigh* (Also? Note to self: less contrast is better.) SOILERS - True Blood 4x02 )


Quote of the Day: [livejournal.com profile] aelora, here
I swear I spend every waking moment on Tumblr anymore. It's like watching CNN, except for fandom. You get the updates AS THINGS HAPPEN. And with pictures and video. It's INSANE. And ADDICTIVE.

Went out with my mom and dad today in the afternoon with a mission: to buy shoes. (We've got this thing where if we pay more than N on a single receipt, we get tax exception. The "pay more than N" thing is new and unusual and wasn't a requirement in other countries. What can you do?) And lo and behold! Shoes were had! Two pairs! This is like a miracle with a cherry on top. So I can has shoes.

Then we had ice cream and how sad is your fruit when the melon ice cream is better than your morning's melon? I'm not going to complain much, though, 'cause we've been snarfing down mangoes like crazy and they've been delicious and straight from Pakistan, sold by Pakistanis over near what we all call "the ethnic market" but has an actual name. Sadly, though, mangoes season is over until around September. Curse my undying desire for tropical fruit!

Then there was a bra shopping - I'd been wanting a summer-appropriate bra for a while, and we happened upon a yarn-and-thread-and-socks-and-bras-and-pijamas-and-so-on shop, which has a name in Spanish and Italian and I'm damned 'cause I can't remember it at all, and what do you know, bras were purchased! In fact, the same style bra as the shop lady - who'd been having a cigarette break - was wearing, and the same brand as I myself was wearing (and it was pretty awesome that the lady knew which model it was just from my bra strap), which is the same brand that makes my mom squee because it is just that good. (Said brand is Simone Perele, by the by.)

Tomorrow we're going to Anguillara which we've technically already seen, although that was a raining-heavily, try-and-make-out-the-lake day where we arrived, had a cuppa, and left. But tomorrow's going to be splendid, 'cause we're having lunch with my ex-superivser - the really awesome one from my internship volunteer thing. \o/

I've also caught up on the flist. I still have a load of SPN tabs open, but hey, something's something. There's still this week's supply of Tumblr to wade through... Damn it, Internet! Why you so full of stuff?

So I just watched my Walking Far From Home fanvid and just realized that somehow, a clip-series was doubled. Like, there is a whole verse that's been doubled. This will have to be rectified. I just... *facepalm* And no one's said anything? I'm going to go hide under a rock in shame now.

Interview went alright, except for the fact that it wasn't about an internship but rather a volunteership, which has a nasty clause of your not being able to work for Organization for a period of 6 months after your volunteership, which would result in basically one year having to pass before I have a shot of actually working there for cash, and the volunteership was for the communication's department of a sustainable development project.
