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.

Sickle's Brief Review of The Crazies:
  • I loved this movie. Loved loved loved it. It had heart, it had gore, it had the real sort of horror and the movie horror, it had action, and it flowed. Also, what's not to love about what is basically a zombie movie?

  • What I mean about the "real sort of horror" is that there's a lot of scenes - and implied scenes - of people doing absolutely horrific things. Spoilers )

  • That said, the "movie horror" is very well done too. The scares and traps and jumps are good, and the slight paranoia that starts halfway through is a nice touch, although it never really takes flight. The deaths are good and showy, the gore is bloody (and at one point a bit too gorey for my tastes - mild spoiler )). Most characters didn't to ridiculously stupid endangerment things, and I actually cared about them, even if just because they'd managed to not die by the slimmest of margins.

  • There's a few snags in the backdrop storyline spoilers )

Day 18: I bought a Kinder Surprise egg and had a nice chat on the trip home from German with Girl Who's Name I Can't Remember and Obviously Can't Ask Now, who is rapidly becoming the nearest thing to a friend my age in this city that I have. It's strange, and been a while, but also nice because we get along and there's banter and mutual encouragement.

bending_sickle: (But I won't like it)
Today was sprinkled with suck, apparently. Consider that it started with my not getting out of the elevator at warp speed, so that it flew right back up to the very top floor when a neighbour rang it. "But I saw the button go dark," he said, referring to the "I'm free! Call me!" button. Yeah, but dude, you have to give me time to get out once the elevator lands.

Then there was work. Work was frustrating because I'm editing the format of a bunch of articles for a collection, and by gods are the articles in some serious need of formatting. Some only give half their references, others throw in copy/pasted lists, and still others decide that one-line paragraphs are teh awesome. Why can't people do things right the first time, or at least be consistent in their own article?

But that wasn't it, either. The office is cold. Like, very cold. Like, I wear wool sweaters and fingerless gloves and sit next to the portable radiator while the heater is rumbling on in the background. That's cold. But my co-worker - the substitute secretary who's from round-about my generation - insists on forgetting to close the door behind her whenever she leaves the room. Rant is ranty )


Also, my mother's back, as I might have mentioned, and we're back to me sucking and me not being able to breathe without being a rude daughter and obviously not even trying to get out of a house I'm just leeching off of which I am trying to keep my head together and not die a little support would be nice. Oh look, another rant. )


I think you can see why I'm not really up to posting or writing or anything at all these days. Like, I have a queue list on YouTube from October, and a fanfic I haven't touched in almost four months, and fanmixes that have been live for two months and still haven't been pimped, and it took me like two weeks to revise my CV and rant continues )

AND I KEEP GETTING SPAM COMMENTS ON MONTHS-OLD LIVEJOURNAL POSTS WTF.

Day 13: I had the house to myself for the almost-three hours between internship and German. Also, there were cookies.

Sickle Shows Signs of Life, Fails Miserably:

  • I'm on Chapter 7 of 13 in the editing of Nanowrimo 2010. It's actually better than my sleep-deprived memories insisted it was, and there's some elements that keep popping up that give it the illusion of a theme. I'm going to give TfSB an edit as well sometime soon, because a) it's embarrassingly full of typos and b) I want my volunteer internship supervisor to read it first before handing over TWSaM. (I've talked about the book with her a lot, and she's been really supportive and interested in it, and would like to read it, so yays!)

  • Watched L'Herrisson yesterday, a French film about a very intelligent little girl bent on committing suicide on her twelfth birthday, the consierge, a quite woman with hidden depths, and the new Japanese neighbour who courts her. It was wonderful and beautiful, even if the ending made me wail against the world.

  • On Tuesday, the students of Rome - and the whole country - went out in a manifestation which blocked the whole of downtown and the metro. This resulted in my first staring at the closed metro station displaying schopero, then taking bus one so I could connect to bus two, except bus one never went to where it was supposed to connect because the whole center was blocked so I ended up taking a really long tour around downtown, across the river, through a couple tunnels, until I finally managed to get off somewhere near the Vatican and Castel Sant Angelo. I walked to where I was supposed to find bus two, but that was closed to traffic, pretty much, so I ended up walking all the way home in the rain. I got home 3:15 hours after I was supposed to, and most of that was walking. I was displeased.

  • I've been scanning documents like mad these past few days, which while boring and on-my-feet work, it has allowed me to catch up on audiobooks and podcasts. I should probably write this is my profile, but I have mad love for Winchester Radio and Monster Talk (science!) and am currently listening to The Vesuvius Club as recommended by [livejournal.com profile] qthewetsprocket

  • About a month ago I had a meet-and-greet with someone from Organization, where I basically handed over my CV and met the interns, whom I had lunch with at the cafeteria. I also got chatted up by the security guard during the half hour I was waiting to be let into the Organization (crazy security measures of crazy) and he gave me his number, but I've let that slide. I've been meaning to write about that for ages, so here it is.

  • I'm going to Chicago on Sunday - my brother's not coming for Christmas, so I'm the official family representative. I'll be back the 17th and [livejournal.com profile] katarinagram's coming the 21st for the holidays, so there is much squee.

...Today Is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life.*


After much freaking out and "I cannae do this, Captain!" I managed to call the guy from FAO about volunteerships and internships. I stuttered a bit, shook a bit more, and finally managed to speak. He, on the other hand, sounded like the most wonderful person ever. He basically told me to go the usual route with the forms and stuff, but he told me about two other agencies that do similar work and also provided his email so I could forward him my application. So \o/ on that.

I then went and had lunch with Willy, and there was much squee and joy. It was pretty hilarious how I was high on caffeine and sociality and saying how I was miserable with the biggest grin on my face. Oh brain, you so weird!

And continuing our nightly tradition of anxiety dreams, or nightmares, I had another one! About having two buckets full of water and trying to move fish out of one, realizing that the big fish were eating the small ones so panicking even more about taking the fish out, then realizing that the big bucket I was holding the two buckets in has a mother-lovin' baby crocodile in it and then the bucket I'm holding is practically churning with little crocodiles and there's a tortoise over on the side.

I'm going to recover from today's madness - yes, it's 4 pm and the day can be over now, thanks - and watch Lost. Then I have to pull myself together enought write a few emails expressing my condolences because holy shit, y'all, violence in Nairobi to people I know. Willy just told me what happened and it's really, really bad.

FAIL: FAO information on the internship still unread.

OTHER: Went out for lunch and a walk but got to the restaurant too late for lunch so had a sandwich at a cafe. Felt too much like crap to walk, so bought lollipops (for trip) and collapsed onto bed. Half-watched YouTuber Community Channel for a couple hours. Called Ma and Great Aunt. Did Links of the Day. Still feel like a wet rag.

(oh brain, you silly odd thing). 2b) Stuff happens and we watch a volcano explode far away. Cue giant rock falling towards us.

bending_sickle: (For fuck's sake)
Today I woke up feeling absolutely exhausted and it just went downhill from there. The morning - what was left of it - went by in a fog (and cramps). I made lunch. More fog.

I read through the two job magazines I'd acquired throughout the year (one UK focused, one for the Science employment fair I missed 'cause I was in Kenya, who's companies ads' wordings** made me want to jab pencils into people's faces and scream "But what do you doooo?!?). In conclusion, according to one of the magazines, the majority of science jobs are software programming. According to the other magazine, the only entity that mentioned "sustainable development" was one for Scottish National Heritage, which sounds promising.

Although, if they're of the same mindset as the guy who interviewed me for graduate studies in an English university, then I might just scream. Now, I don't quite understand why they needed to interview me for an MSc acceptance/rejection decision, but they did just that, over the phone. That's perfectly all right, except that I was in a large city in Canada and had never lived in Europe - save for 1.5 years at the age of 7 or so - and they guy was asking me whether I could identify the local English birds. "Um, no, but I can learn! And I can identify a lot of Canadian birds, and African birds and all the invasive birds of Australia." He also asked if I went hiking or bird-watching. "...I'm a full-time student in a large metropolitan city." Gods, I hated that interview.

Anyway, so I did a list of possible places to check out for openings, and made another list of webpages with jobs listings, and then tried to google, started reading about the competitions for EU positions but freaked out. Badly.

So I made dinner and read Watchmen fanfic instead. I spent a good long while reading Anonymous' Sweet Child of Mine featuring Child!Rorschach (aka Walter) and Dan, which just melted my heart. The last chapter is still pending, but I'm going to haunt the page until it does. I'm not one for children - alive or in fiction - but this fic made me want to hug the beejezus out of Walter. And of course, I've been reading OT3 fic, the appeal of which was described better than I did in my last post by [livejournal.com profile] _ryouseiteki:
Also I'm totally in love with 'doesn't know wtf to do' Walter and 'predatory and sly' Laurie and 'mothering I love everything' Dan.

Then I watched The Sarah Jane Adventures "The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith" purely because the Doctor shows up. There's a scene at the end of Sarah Jane's, which felt like saying goodbye to Ten all over again, and it felt right.
SARAH: "Is this the last time I'm ever going to see you?"

DOCTOR: "I don't know. I hope not!"

SARAH: "Bye Doctor. Until the next time."

DOCTOR: "Don't forget me, Sarah Jane."

SARAH: "No one's ever going to forget you."

PAN OUT to sad music and sadder Doctor.

And now I'm going to watch Recovery, also featuring Tennant. I'm going to try to work tomorrow and get out of the house: I've found another second-hand bookstore quite a ways away, so I'll try unloading my books there, and I need to post a care-package.

Life: I has lion maps! Now I just need to calculate the distances the furballs covered, do some graphs, bang my head against Access some more for new maps and then mellow out in the glory of a job well done. For about two seconds, after which I edit, prepare the databases and work on the presentation.

I called Ma today (missed call from last night) and it was Not Good but then it was Okay. I'd say more but it's already 2 am and I'm a fucking moron for staying up this late. Maybe tomorrow, when I need to vent.

Also, it's very, very windy and the universe picks right the fuck now for something in the neighbour's balcony to start pouding away loudly. Argh. I want to sleep without random annoying noises! Woe.

Quote of the Day: Douglas Coupland, Eleanor Rigby, here
The thing about meat with me, though, is how it speaks to me about the human body. All of us are stuck inside our meaty bodies. I've always imagined that regular people are happy to be inside their bodies, whereas lonely people yearn to ditch their carcasses. I suspect lonely people wish they could forget the whole meat-and-bone issue altogether. We're the people most likely to believe in reincarnation simply because we can't believe we were shackled into our meat in the first place. Lonely people want to be dead, yet we're still not quite ready to go - we don't want to miss the action; we want to see who wins next year's Academy Awards. More to the point, the lonely, like all humans, yearn to meet that somebody who'll make us feel better about being trapped inside our species' meat-and-bone soul containment system. Oh God, I sound like a prison warden.

Today's work on the thesis was very much like banging my head against a wall. Progress is measurable only in snail, slug, sloth or plant communities. Every few seconds I had to go bother the prof who's holding my hand through the whole Access and ArcGIS learning experience, and to make matters more aggravating, the program was fond of giving me the finger (which in program speak is "I can't find the tools you just installed!" or "Oop! Memory error! We gotta shut down the program!" or "Aha! I have tricked you with my multiple tabs!"). Woe.

In other news, I bought makeup. Not for any noraml reason, but rather for Halloween. You know, to get dressed up although I have nowhere to go dressed up, or anyone to go with. (Partly because I fail and haven't called anyone. Okay, that's probably a big reason.) Also I am not lame enough to go about my day dressed up, October 31st notwithstanding. Items include white water-based theatrical thingy (for that "Look! I'm dead!" look), shimmery eyeshadow (because I will both embrace and mock Twilight by fucking sparkling), a kohl stick (apparently necessary for "the goth look") and red lipstick (the kind of red I'd call "Harlot"), which is actually making me squee on general terms because I've never had red lipstick. Add plastic canines, and you've got my usual Halloween constume. (Except for last year, where I was a gypsy, because I couldn't whip up anything else.)

I've been a bit musically bored lately, so I went over to [livejournal.com profile] fanmix (members-only) and went a little crazy. Now I just need to load up the 'Pod so's I can actually listen to them. I think I'll get some listening done tomorrow while I clean the big kitchen (yeach). I also want to try knitting the next step in the elephant toy following detailed instructions made of win and there's the icons I want to make, too. Musical chances ahoy!

Oh, and oh gods, I want to clean up a photograph of a map for my internship report (which will be "fun") and I want to do some statistics this weekend - averages and margin of error, nothing difficult but mind-numbingly boring. This past week has basically been a waste of time and said time is getting short. Also, I'm going to be with my folks (in Italy!) for three days, so I might want to catch up for that.

I've been staring at the mailbox lately, because my brother suggested he might be sending me something for my birthday (last month's event), and also Danny's jam's been in limbo for a while. Me want mail-jam *pout*

I wizzed through Castle Season 1, giggling all the way. I think this show's delightful.

Today's morning was pretty much wasted, although I did manage to get an international student card. Getting said card involved:

1) going to the address I'd been given
2) going to the new address stated on the door
3) getting the form
4) going home for a passport photo
5) going to a biology building to photocopy my student card
6) freaking out because the biology building has been completely emptied and was dripping with post-apocalyptic vibes
7) going to another, farther biology building to photocopy my student card
8) going back to the store to hand in my papers
9) moseying about the store waiting for the card to be made
10) profit! payement! for card and teeny-tiny metallic Ganesh statue ♥

I then proceeded to the train station where I got a juice and miniature sandwhich for lunch and also caved like a little wuss and bought the most gigantic and chocalatic cookie on the face of the earth.

Went to work, ate cookie, had coffee and wrote a total of 750 words more for the introduction. *sigh* I've yet to finish the results and there's the discussion to be done - traditionally the longest part - and I want to be finished by the end of this year and holy galavanting gods on rollerscates it's almost November.

Ran today at a good pace and extrended the route by another large chunk. Am now suffering from a bellyache due to lousy goulash dinner and will watch Heroes (although I'd much rather watch Castle, which is all I watched yesterday).

Quote of the Day: [livejournal.com profile] maychorian, here, re: "Our Children Are Our Future", Supernatural 5x06
Okay, when Jesse led them into the house and there were no parents and soup on the stove [...], I wondered if this kid was in trouble. [...] I thought of Something Wicked, Sam and Dean alone in that dumpy motel room, and I wondered how they would react to this.

If they saw a kid being treated the way John treated them, how would they handle it? Would they be displeased, try to do something about it? Would they accept it as just the way this particular family worked?

What if they met a hunter who was dragging kids around while pursuing this hard, risky life? Would they try to dissuade him? Give the kid a Snickers bar? Team up for some target practice? I wonder. [...] I guess that's what fanfic is for.

Icon Post - 79 Icons


Apart from the above icons (which were a pain, because the whole thing was filmed in blue tones), I've done sweet fuck-all today. Woke up at 1 pm (went to sleep at 4 am), read some fic, walked a tad, cooked for the first time all week and...yeah.

I'm also half-way through watching Kung-Fu Zombie. Hilarity doesn't so much ensue as it simply continuous throughout. Awesome!

bending_sickle: (Facepalm)
Y'all remember my bumping into a friend at Einstein's last week, who suddenly remembered I existed and said, at the door as I was leaving and she arriving, that she needed to talk to me. At my "Should I be worried?" (as in, "What the fuck are you on about?") she didn't care to elaborate. After promising to call, text or facebook (or suggesting I do it), she finally contacts me a week later. Cue drama. )
