Yesterday was my last day at my internship, and goddamnit, if I could network and socialize like I did yesterday when I was saying goodbye... I had lunch with my supervisor and the rest of my team (I was part of a team, yo, although that was more administrative than anything) and then ran around having coffee with different people and basically feeling like:



Today was Day 1 of freeeeeedom (a.k.a. unemployment) and tomorrow I'm off to Barcelona. I'll be back in a week with snazzy things (I will get books) and food, and then I'll continue this mad socializing things. There's a lot of stuff I need to do for that, stuff to get together and the likes, but I'm all headachey and I just managed to clean up the mad amounts of tabs I had open.

I seem to have gone from the saddest little llama, wibbling everywhere, to happy (if a bit "I've got noooothing to say" hence this post). This is weird. And my relationship with my mom's improved. I don't know what's going on.

In other news, I finally watched Alice and ngh, Hatter. (Trailer)

Also I'm slowly trying to get Time 3 spruced up to post (and to send to CreateSpace) but there's been a certain lack of motivation going on. Whelp. Hopefully this week I'll get the missing scene done (it might even just be a paragraph, but writing, ugh) and then it's just a hope and a jump.

So in the fine tradition of plugging my Nanowrimo into Wordle to make a word cloud, here's evidence of just how much Crowley derailed everything: Read more... )

During the brief moments when I haven't been working or lying in bed cursing a cold, I've been watching television. Have some comments on that, because apart from writing some Time drabbles (and there's some Chip/Icarus there for you, [livejournal.com profile] seschat), I've got nothing new.

A person who feels lonely regardless of if she is at a family gathering, with friends, or alone is experiencing chronic loneliness. It does not matter what goes on in the surrounding environment, the experience of loneliness is always there.

Hello, dolls! I'm back, although Ye Great Retelling of my vacation will have to wait until I go through the hundreds of photos and all that fun stuff. Short version is I went to Vienna, Prague and Budapest and it was glorious \o/

As a result of all that, though, I'm now a bit swamped in all my projects and behind on all things fandom, although as you can tell from the LotD, I'm trying to catch up.

At work today I came across two articles which were upsetting for a number of reasons. Background information for the amnesiacs and newcomers: I spent four months tracking lions in Amboseli, namely five radio-and-GPS-collared ones, which means that for four months I saw them nearly every day and learned about their lives and prides and then analyzed the shit out of everything.

I'm announcing an official hiatus (as opposed to the "oh gods, work is draining the life force out of me" hiatus) for the coming week because I'm going to be galavanting about Europe. The Links of the Day will be done, eventually, so never fear. As for my fellow Supernatural viewers, be strong and keep the spoilers away from me until next Saturday (which is when I'll probably come crawling to y'all in tears and dire need of discussion.)

...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.

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.

Just had the doctor's appointment, certifying that, indeed, I will not drop dead at the office. There was also surprise EVERYTHING (and TMI) )

I've been listening to Thea Gilmore's "Avalanche" on repeat since I got back home. I've got that half-a-bottle of beer from yesterday and some chips. I have Mark Sheppard in some three episodes of Dollhouse to rewatch. (I think I didn't recognize him the first time because his face has freakin' morphed since he was a not-so-wee thing on Firefly.) I think I'll be okay.


In other news (and in a completely different mood), I found that video that everyone's making GIFs of Misha! \o/ Check it out!

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.

When Google Fails Me: I'm setting up a pdf of a selection of my stories for my supervisor, and working through author's notes, adding links and so on. In one chapter of a story, I reference a [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes - or possibly a comment on a [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes, which, yay.
[livejournal.com profile] ultra_lilac: People should never be baked into pies, you monster! The pastry overpowers the delicate bouquet of flavours in human flesh!

Goddamnit, I can't find it on the internet to put in the url. This is driving me crazy! (Yes, I am that nitpicky.) I figured out that the quote has to be older than December 2005, but any googles give me only my own post about it. So after having skimmed through half of 2005, I'm going to start at the begininng (2002) and head on from there. I will find it even if it kills me. Grr.
