THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I WILL BE VISITING dream_mancer
IN AUGUST! THIS DESERVES JOY AND SNOOPY DANCES AND STREAMERS AND CONFETTI AND RAINBOWS AND PUPPIES AND SAM WINCHESTER NAKED (INSIDE JOKE!) AND LOTS OF OTHER HAPPY-MAKING THINGS! *KLINGS*
I can't remember the last time I was on vacation - not just a weekend getaway, but a real-live, here's my slip, I need permission because I'm taking the week off VACATION. I know I was still in college, because I haven't taken one since I graduated. It might have been my Spring Break trip to Florida... God, my Sophomore year. Jesus, has it really been that long? I could never afford that many days off before - still can't, really - but I need
them, and Laura and I were talking, and she said "You could always come here," and it was funny, because I was already seriously considering it... and it all sort of snowballed from there.
So, keep your fingers crossed for me. And find me some Xanax and/or some Dramamine for the plane. Because ya'll know how well I do with flying...
My body has decided that the ass-crack of dawn (literally) is an AWESOME time to be waking up. Without fail, I've been waking up around 4:45 every morning this week. Now, this made sense Monday and Tuesday - my body has been on a pretty regular 4 or 7-hour clock since my last year of college, and I was passing out at 9:30. Yesterday, I was up until 11.
My thoughts: "Hey, I can set my alarm for 6, I'll be up before it anyway, but no way will I be up before 5!"
My body: "Hahahahaha!"
...yeah. 4:30 -_- Not on, brain. Not. On. I forced myself to fall back to sleep, but I know better and should have just rolled out of bed. I felt over-exhausted and miserable when I woke up again at 5:45. Days like this I wish I could down a shot of expresso and not have to worry about migraine backlash and caffiene withdrawal headaches. *sighs*
is... coming. Slowly. I'm honestly trying to figure out how the hell I managed to finish the damn thing last year between work and whatever the hell else I had to do. And this year, I have even less time before my posting date, and I'll be honest - I'm less motivated. It's not that I don't love the story, because I do, or that I think it's not original - because I do - I just feel like it's overwhelming me. The story, the changes I have to make. Everything. And with less than three weeks before my posting date, that's not a place I should or need to be right now.
I need a swift kick in the ass.
30 Day TV and Music MemeDay 04 → Your favorite show ever
*snorts* Like this even requires an ounce of thought. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I pretty much grew up with that show - when it first aired, my mom thought I was too young to watch, so I would sneak over to a friend's house to watch the re-runs that aired on the weekends. By Season 2, she just told me to watch it on the TV in the basement because she didn't want to watch it. By Season 5 I had her
hooked. I marked a lot of my life milestones with Buffy, as silly as that may sound - when she graduated, so did I (from grade school, but still...) When the show ended, I graduated high school. And the show definitely got me through a lot of personal rough patches. Plus, it was one half of my first fandom (the other half being Harry Potter) and without it I wouldn't have met dream_mancer
