So, maybe I oughta start using this thing more. I imported all my entries and kept all my pals...all my pals that moved over, anyway, so really, there isn't actually any reason to let this thing languish. I mean, besides the fact that between Plurk and tumblr, I've completely forgotten how to write in anything but tiny little blurbs whenever a coherent thought pops into my head. Regardless of how interesting it is.

But I will update regardless.

So, IRL, there is actually not a whole lot going on. The Library is currently under a pretty heavy remodel and every night I come out of there feeling like I've morphed into Pigpen. The amount of dust is unreal, and it settles on everything. We will never get rid of it. It has consumed the entire children's fiction section, and we will soon need to stock archeologist brushes for patron convenience.

Other then that I have exactly nothing going on. I've been attempting to apply for college, which I'm sort of terrified of and excited for at the same time. I'm hoping to go into their creative writing program, because I like to pretend I'm good at writing, good at taking criticism, and I also really hate money and want to avoid making it as much as possible. That isn't happening until the fall however, and I can't even begin to impress upon you how utterly, horrifically, ridiculously stinking BORED I am. Shit is unreal.

Which probably means I'll have more desire for RP. Except that the only thing that's actually recharged my RP drive is a quick little thread made of melodrama I put up in the Last Words meme for a kid's cartoon show that a grand total of one other person RPs from. So I'm going to guess I run on sadness and fandom obsessiveness. GO FIG.

Ah, I forgot how I was going to end this. I guess...How's tricks, everyone?

I guess I'm due for some sort of life update, ain't I? I've been away for a while, so I guess I have to work hard to make you all sick of me again.

Sorry Carol I am a format thief )

I think...I started this, left it to go to work, came back and forgot what the hell else I was going to talk about. I end more then a few of my entries this way, so I don't suppose it matters any, really.

Well, Finals are over, cards are mailed, sleep is (mostly) caught up on, and I'm trying to figure out what my Christmas break should be taken up with. Probably something inconsequential and lazy, like video games, although I'd love to do some non-roleplay based writing. Which I tried at with NaNoWriMo and got overwhelmed with schooling at the same time.

And I have to clean up my room and think about what I'm going to once I'm out of community college. Thaaaaat last one, though, can wait. I'm going to milk my free time for all it's worth this year.

I kind of forget where I was going with this. Oh well.

ETA: OH! I almost forgot! I got your card, [livejournal.com profile] sideburnpower! It was absolutely lovely, thank you.

Oh ow ow ow the only thing I HATE about this time of year is that my skin takes on the texture of a brillow pad in a cactus patch with the same amount of moisture in it and feels about as nice. Some of you might now some good moisturizing body-washes? I would really appreciate some names named.

But some nice stuff happened! I got into [livejournal.com profile] queenofheartsrp, found a CD case I lost about two years ago (With Forbidden Broadway Strikes Back AHHHH I thought that was gone forever!), and I...um, got to procrastinate on my chemistry homework AND have enough cash to buy Sam and Max Season 3!

Thanksgiving was nice but uneventful, except there was a falling out between my aunts. Both aunts weren't there, thank god, but that meant hearing every detail, psychoanalyzing every detail, and then deciding what to do or not do about every detail. Not so interesting for me, particularly because one aunt can't be convinced that the other wouldn't hate her if not for the fact they're related. Oh well. So it goes.

Sob, I can't even believe that my week break is almost over where did the time even go? THIS IS NOT FAIR.

I'd make a future/anticipatory Pokemon team, but because my first time with any new Pokemon involves me going "Pokemon Pokemon where are all the Pokemon I want ALL the Pokemon yes even your crappy legendaries give them here what's that behind your back is that a Pokemon c'mon hand it over" I figure my team will take care of itself.

I am not excited enough to download the ROM, plus I don't much like playing console games on the computer, PLUS I don't need another Thing To Do...but I am dumb and giddy enough to start assigning personalities to Pokemon OCs, which is fun and gives me something to daydream about at work when I've got nothing else to think about.

So, I ran into one of my Creative Writing classmates while getting new pencils and a frappachino and we compared notes about stories and then just talked about video games for an hour. That was fun. I was actually surprised at how much we hit it off, and because my IRL social circle has dwindled to one, I was really glad to have a human connection that didn't involve work/my currently-one-other friend.

It occurs to me that I've been spending a whole heck of a lot of money lately, and while I kind of want to save more then I have been, I also know that I'll never again be in the position where I a) have money to spend and b) don't actually HAVE to spend it on anything. And also, my sister has moved out and now adopted a dog that she can't afford and IDEK I guess I just want to quit being the responsible one for a change.

Sigh...also considering finally dropping out of big and/or public roleplaying games, at least for a while. IDK, it just hasn't been all that much fun and it hasn't been that much fun for months, bordering on a year...or, er, however long it's been. I'd love to do some private stuff with friends, mind, but public games no longer really work with my schedule or drive.

Of course, I'm only about done with 25% of my flip-flopping on this, and I still have another 200 years of waffling to go before I make any decisions.

So, I went ahead and bought myself a paid account, because I'm the the position where I can afford it and not worry all that much about it. I also bought a big fuck-off userpic package, again, indulging myself. I've still got 58 spaces to fill. REC ME SOME ICON COMS MY SISBROS.

I've still got my story to write but I am not in the groove. Tomorrow probably will be the Grand Writing Day where I write my fifteen pages and tag with any kind of speed and maybe even get critiques done. I won't be wanting to go anywhere after work anyway.

Oh, man, my head is spinning. I was gonna continue that 30 day meme after getting away from it from so long but maybe later.

-Don't sit on my hand cat. I want my car keys up your fuzzy butt about as much as you do.

-This would be the perfect soup if it didn't have mushrooms in it.

-I'm going in to pick out my classes for next semester today. The lady on the phone said they didn't have any appointments available, but I could walk in any time and do it that way.

Yeah. "We're so busy we simply can't make any appointments to meet with people, so just come on in at any old random time and we'll be sure to drop everything and meet with you!" OK then.

-I think I'm addicted to iTunes. On the one hand, 10 dollars digital for a 32 dollar CD? F-yeah. On the other, HOLY CRAP LOOK AT ALL THIS MUSIC OH I LIKE THIS SONG HERE LET ME CHECK OUT ALL THEIR OTHER STUFF OK YEAH I'LL BUY IT ALL. On another hand, I am rediscovering a love of music that had been lying dormant in me for years. On yet another hand...No, I'm just keeping it to three hands. That way I can pretend to be Zaphod Beeblebrox.

-I have a Plurk, oh horror of horrors. It's Caligraphunky, same as my Twitter. I feel a deep and acute sense of shame looking at it, and I don't particularly like the way it's set up besides, but perhaps that will be bred out of me as I use it.

-Geeze, but there are a lot of mushrooms in this soup.

-Oh hey did Mayfield just get a Sam Vimes? Holy crap I think it did. That's...awesome.

-My foot is asleep. I guess that means it's time to wrap this up!

-This was kind of pointless, now that I think on it.

-Oh well.

MY RIFFTRAX SHORTS DVDS ARE HERE! HAHAHAHA SWEET SWEET RIFFTRAX!

This is good because I've been a bit lonely lately and wanted something to do. My RL friends are all busy and that makes me sad, but I can do something until they're free. I love you, Rifftrax...Rifftrax, I love you.

I might as well mention that I ended up making a musebox after all. I've wanted one, and I've been thinking my grasp on characterization is a bit shakey. It'll be mostly me bouncing some of my muses off each other as practice before I go public with them.

The community name is [livejournal.com profile] undercranked. It's cool if you wanna come play with me, and in fact I'd enjoy it, but don't feel like you have to. It's just there, and I've still kind of gotta fix it up a bit.

Man, maybe I don't want to go back to SBG after all. I thought I had a spark, but I can't seem to kindle it into any sort of flame.

I sure as heck miss playing with a lot of the people there though. Maybe I'll just make a musebox to goof around in or something. Though I guess I could just use Snap's or James'. That too.

Man, I don't even know why I go gambling. I always lose and I always curse and shout and then I always come back to do it again some more. And the free hotel rooms they give us have crappy beds.

I should go start...packing up. Then it's breakfast. Then...um, stuff I guess. It's better then watching the Flintstones, if anything. I'm even starting to ship Fred/Barney...That's when I know I didn't get a good night's sleep.

SBG...I don't even know what. Stuff.  )

...10 in the evening and the fact that I've already had dinner be damned. I'm having me some soup.

My goodness, but I'm boring.
caligraphunky: (Careful now.)
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 01:02 pm
K.K. Slider at SBG...I have been batting this idea around for a while, but I cannot seem to come to any real decision.

My whole entire body rhythm is messed, and I can see that it won't get regular again for at least another month. I've been staying up too late and skipping too many meals.

The up-too-late is just a computer addiction, but meal skipping is mostly because my mom and sister are on this crash-corse food-will-kill-you-so-for-god-sakes-don't-eat-anything diet, and so there's basically nothing in the house anymore. Well, there's vegatables, but there isn't too much variety (there is spinach and spinach). Anything I want I have to go out and get myself, and I don't want to have to spend the money and hide it from them to eat.

Groan...Oh well, I might just end up going to Spoons (local soup and salad place) a lot more then I usually do. It'll support mom and sis by eating healthily and not have to starve.

Also, sadly, my DS is broken. The entire top screen has gone completely white. I looked it up on the internet and it's probably that the ribbon that connects it is loose. Perfect. That means I'll have to send the damn thing in.
caligraphunky: (Spitting is fun.)
Monday, May 17th, 2010 10:26 pm
So, tomorrow I get to go with my mom to pick up my Grandmother at the airport, and then we'll go up to Blackhawk to gamble, because it's the only thing my Grandmother's short attention span will allow her to focus on. (She's not senile, she just knows the only thing she likes.)

I...didn't actually know I was doing that. That kind of puts a damper on my plans for tomorrow, 1st of which was to Fucking Clean Up My Mess, 2nd of which was to get over my Weird RP Thing which has made it hard for me to tag. I dunno why I've been having such trouble with that lately.

I say lately, it's been kind of sense I lost interest in SBG, which was a while ago.

Also, I don't actually have my Adult Person License for Adults yet. I just have the paper that says I'll get it at some point...um, whenever. I don't know if that will affect anything, but I do know that I got quite the collection of paper Of-Age bracelets last time.

As much as my sister's graduation will be fun, inviting more then one of my mom's side of the family at a time somewhere is like putting a rabid pit bull in a cage with a frightened rottweiler with a couple of pekingeses as mediators.

Somebody's going to get killed and eaten, is what I'm trying to say. Preferably not in the kitchen.

...I bought a song off iTunes today that is basically 2 two minute songs with eight minutes of nothing in between. Is that an artistic statement that I'll probably never understand or am I allowed to hate it?
caligraphunky: (Strolling with friends)
Sunday, May 9th, 2010 06:35 pm
Oooogh, I haven't felt this dizzy in a long time. Dinner was great, but I can barely string a sentence together. It wasn't even that I ate that much; it was just all salt, fat, fatty salt, and salty fat. And potatoes. Now I want to pass out and not wake up.

I haven't really been looking at the internet much except for what I need to do homework, so realize that I missed the end of the event at Mayfield and probably a few things at Zenithia. I'm not so worried about Zenithia, but Mayfield makes me think back on what I really love about SBG: The totally chill attitude about that sort of stuff. I could do this and go "hey bras sorry life got away from me" and everyone would go "yeah that's cool no problem"

I don't feel I have that luxury in Mayfield. It's not bad, it's just...a different RPing culture.

Nothing to be done, is the opinion I'm beginning to come around to. I just will go "sorry I didn't expect to disappear on you guys" and that will be that because that is all I can do.

At least school's almost over.

ALSO. QUESTION. I have been feeling an itch to write, and was thinking about turning [livejournal.com profile] totallysure into all writing all the time, because, let's face it, I am not an artist.

But I am wondering if that would be interesting to anyone else. Writing is different then the visual stuff, and if I am posting it online in public for all to see, I would very much like it to be interesting to other people. Perhaps this question is also some insecurity coming through too, but oh well, that is the way it goes with creativity.

Still, I would like to know.

And anyway, back to studing. One more final, and then I am done for the summer. That's keeping me sane right now like you don't even know.

So we did a lab involving live E. Coli today and my mind is doing this paranoid shreiking thing all "I BET YOU GOT SOME IN YOUR EYE OR NOSE OR SOMETHING AND YOU WILL GET SICK AND DIE POOR YOU"

But I am ignoring it. Shut up, brain.

So, I got Nanny Ogg in Mayfield, which puts me at three characters there, and two at Zenithia. I can't find a script for Cave Story, so I will have to find a Lets Play with Curly's lines in it. And now apperently, I am also sending a guy in at Sky Tides.

But I can quit apping any time I like.

So I need to study.

But I don't want to.

...Well. That's that then!

Augh, so today I am sick with a sour stomach but I didn't get sick until after the bio lab which really just confuses the hell out of me unless I...swallowed some ethanol. Or something. Which I'm pretty sure didn't happen. Because I do not eat the things used in bio lab.

Anyway, we were isolating onion DNA and the instructor let us take it home. So now there is a vial of onion DNA on my Carefully Collected Shelf of Useless Junk. So that's fun.

Also, my professor has given me hope for the future: the bio final? NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Oh MAN that's music to my ears.

Oh! Tonight I get to go see Jesus Christ Superstar with the ORIGINAL TOURING CAST. One of my dad's friends is a huge nutter for that play, and he told dad about it who told me. So I get to go tonight, which will make up for the rest of today. I hope.

As far as RP goes: I'm going to app Nanny Ogg from Discworld at Mayfield, and Curly Brace from Cave Story at Zenithia. Then I will have six characters total and that will be all the apping I'll do for a while. ...Um, probably.

Now, Video games! I bought the Wii version of Cave Story, Prototype for Xbox 360, and WarioWare DIY. Cave Story is Cave Story and it is awesome, Prototype is...fun, but not really all that engaging just yet, and WarioWare DIY has given me the oddest complaint I've ever had with a video game but here it is:

Jimmy T has no butt.

Seriously, they make him an aerobics instructor, put him in a leotard, and don't give him any definition in his butt? He's a dancer! His hindquaters shouldn't be a line where his legs end! I know he's not muscled like Fabio, but he should have some tone down there!

...And then I realized that I was actually angry about Jimmy T's behind, and that I was picking apart why he should have visable buttcheeks. And then I cried.

So. I am home from the casinos and buffets of Blackhawk, Colorado's own smaller, higher, crappier Vegas.

I have played many slots and did slightly worse then break even. I have drunk casino drinks which are made by mixing together all the ingredients and then waving (unopened) bottles of alcohol in the direction of the cup. I won two bonuses in a row playing a Village People themed game.

I confused floor attendants with my ID and had to wear stupid paper bracelets signaling that I should not be tackled and thrown out on my ass. I have eaten my weight in crabs legs, had the worst breakfast I've ever had anywhere, and won 12 bucks at a machine while eating a burger in the filthiest place I've ever set foot in.

I met a chronic liar on the tram, slept in comfy beds and missed out on a chance to play Pilotwings 64.

Yeah, it was pretty awesome.

So, what did I miss? How was [livejournal.com profile] app_this_plz? Get a lot of people?

I had the drop post for SBG written from Tuesday, but I only got the courage to post it today. That should tell you how hard that was.

And then I was accepted into Mayfield last night/this morning, which is exciting. But I'm not sure how to feel about both those events together.

...Also, I want a donut. As long as I'm not sure what to say about things, I might as well latch onto the one feeling I know for sure.

So, tonight was the big awards dinner for the Mary Hull Award (I thought it was Hall all this time. Silly me) that my mom TOTALLY WON and blew everyone else away with her recorded speech because my mom is really great with public speaking and we got some pictures which I will post maybe if they turned out any good and dinner gave me gas.

It was pretty much the best time ever.

Oh, and my old high school Psych teacher won a Teacher of the Year Award, which she completely deserved.

I wish I could go into more detail about it but...all it really ended up being was "These Teachers are Awesome and You Get Cheesecake Because They're so Cool. Also Rotary Club" Which isn't a bad way to spend an evening, really.

Oh goodness, I have the begining stages of App-everything-itis, which I believe is called Wouldn't-it-be-cool-if-osis. I've considered picking up a fourth as SBG and I've thought of apping Big the Cat, Chibi-Robo, Dyna-Blade, Young Cricket, Blathers, and a lot more. My list of potential thirds at Zenithia is growing, and I can't get apping Munch at Trans 9 out of my head. Then there's the kissing game I wanted to start and aaaa I bearly do anything as it is what is even wrong with me?

I had a big ol' poor me pity-party frown-princess-of-funtime-game-based baaaawing entry written about what I was gonna do about my roleplay related issues/slump, but you know what? I already know what what my problem is and what I wanna do about roleplay, I just need to cowboy up and do it already.

So that'll solve that, I hope.
