I'm almost done with grad school. Less than three months to go!

Trying to go a little easy on fandom in the meantime, since I've also moved and am working full time. The only thing I'm signing up for is Yuletide, unless I magically end up with enough free time and enough delusions of capability to decide I can crank out something else on any kind of schedule. That Teen Wolf cosmetology AU ain't gonna appear out of nowhere.

In lieu of actually posting fic, I guess I'll just tap dance or try and fool everyone into thinking I'm actually doing cool things. OH HEY, LOOK! It's this thing from Bina's kink fest that I never actually finished!

(It's the one where Eames forges a centaur. I couldn't go through with actually making Arthur fuck a horse. And some of the places my research took me were pretty weird. The things I do for fandom. If I were a Lannister, I would shove it out a window.)

Um, I also miss everyone and I'm sorry for not being more interesting. I've been more active on Twitter and Tumblr, since they take less energy and the future of this world is one of instant gratification and I am totally, unabashedly part of the problem. Call me maybe.

AND IF ANYONE ELSE THINKS THE CALL ME MAYBE MUSIC VID IS PRIME YULETIDE FANDOM FODDER, I WILL BAKE RAINBOW MUFFINS. AND TAP DANCE. AT THE SAME TIME.

Wow, how about that DDOS attack, eh?

I have to say, considering how long LJ's been around (which is pretty impressive in terms of blogging sites) and considering how many folks use it, they do a decent job at getting shit done. Yeah, it was kind of a pain being unable to feed my LJ addiction whenever the mood was on me, but in the grand scheme of things that isn't even a drop in the bucket. I've been crossposting everything from DW for...God, like a year now? And I love having that extra security, but I'm still attached to LJ since I've been there much longer and it really is where all the action happens.

I do, however, wish LJ had been a little more upfront about what in the world was going on.

So! Remember how I had a couple interviews for actualfax teaching positions? Yeah, the county says that's not gonna fly because they can't hire me until I'm completely done with classes and eligible for student teaching. And since that won't happen until I knock out my last three classes this fall, I'm back to subbing at least for fall semester--however, there's a chance I'll score a long-term gig or that I'll get hired anyway in the spring.

And, additional silver lining, if two schools are keen on hiring me even thought I'm technically not eligible yet, that seems favorable enough to me. So I'm not exactly pleased with things, but I'm familiar with nothing if not bureaucracy. Also, there's a nifty tutoring place hiring part-time tutors to do remote work, so if I can bring in some spare cash working a few extra hours from home, fine by me.

Finally, and most importantly, remember 50/50? That movie where JGL plays a cancer patient? The one that doesn't come out for another two months? Thanks to Tumblr, I won tickets to an advance screening and got to see it last Thursday with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] chibi_lurrel. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT IT. JUST LOOK AT HIS WEE LITTLE HEAD AND DORKY LITTLE EARS.



This entry doesn't give away the end, but I make no promises about the comments, just for the record.


this is my slightly flaily post-50/50 response thing )

Birthday festivities versus textbook analysis. SOMETHING MUST GIVE. Now that I'm older and wiser and infinitely more mature, this should be a piece of cake! No, wait, I just want cake.

WHY MUST I HAVE THIS ONE LAST CLASS BEFORE THE SEMESTER IS OVER? WHY?

Okay. Working. Run to the post office, maybe treat myself to a half-price frappuccino, good behavior permitting, then back home to kick some ass on this analysis. Then festivities. Come on, Yvi! Get with it!



Mulan, I am not listening to you. If you can get down to business and defeat the Huns, I can get down to business and defeat this last assignment.

(Also, I feel like whenever I have a birthday my face decides to break out and show me that I'm permanently stuck in adolescence no matter how old I am. Thank you for that, biology. Um, and I'm sorry this post sucks. I'm having a ~moment.)

Carbon Leaf concert was amazing. Great crowd, great company, great setlist, and we were all right up front. I ended up crashing with [livejournal.com profile] the_samosaurus and was apparently so exhausted that I didn't wake up when she DECIDED IT WAS A GRAND IDEA TO DROP A CAT ON ME.

Also, snow! Not much, but it's still on the ground looking pretty and not screwing up the roads, so I approve. Have some Christmas music.

Also, question for anyone who can weigh in: I need to register for classes, but haven't heard back from my adviser about meeting with her prior to doing so. I'm assuming the best course of action is to just register on my and then add/drop as needed when she does get back to me (whenever that might be, since it's winter break). Does that sound about right?
Mood:: 'complacent' complacent
