Sorry for the double-request! I thought I had screwed up joining somehow, which is how the second request came to be. I'm so sorry! D:

I'm not retracting my previous post. Having talked it out, I stand by what I said and didn't say anything I didn't mean. However, it shouldn't have been said in that manner. For that I apologize.

That said, I'm torn over the situation. I need to think.

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.


So I just got back in from a walk, right? And I like to put soundtracks to my fanfics, right? So here's a tentative playlist for Turnabout Savior, along with each song's meaning in the fic:

I'll Reach You, Delain: Phoenix/Maya, general
Pale, Within Temptation: Pearl's effort to save Phoenix
Somewhere, Within Temptation: General image song for the search & rescue effort for Phoenix
Bleeding Love, Leona Lewis: Apollo/Pearl
Could Not Ask For More, Edwin McCain: Epilogue
Into the Light, In This Moment: Saving Dahlia
The Game, Disturbed: Battle with shadow!Phoenix

I'm sure I'll come up with some other ones, lol.
Attention culprits of recent propaganda in the form of flash games glurge:

Gamers aren't your target audience. Yes, some gamers care about the issues. However, none of us are likely to really be influenced by the propaganda in the game. We're more likely to critique/criticize the game itself. So don't get your panties in a wad when your audience tells you your game sucks. They probably didn't even bother with the text telling us why the other side is ZOMGEBIL. They're just commenting on the game.
Item the first: Work is getting intolerable again. I really want to tell Betty to shut the fuck up anymore. Seriously. She gives me shit when I try to be friendly to her. She gives me shit when I keep to myself. WTF does she want from me?

I can't wait until she retires. Seriously CANNOT wait until she retires. If she doesn't understand the concept, "If you don't like them, just leave them alone" how the HELL did she manage to be a manager for as long as she did? What universe does she live in that actively agitating your coworkers is acceptable behavior?

I usually flock shit like this, but I'm not going to. I actually hope, on some level, SOMEONE from Curtis sees this. No, this isn't a "personal issue." This is a PROFESSIONAL one. I have no problem whatsoever keeping to myself, minding my own business, and steering clear of her. If that actually WORKED, this wouldn't be an issue. This IS a professional issue, because it's now interfering with my ability to do my fucking job.

Although her calling me a bitch under her breath almost made me LOL. Clearly someone doesn't like mirroring.

Item the second: NaNo. I have about 3,000 words. Preeetty sure I'm not doing it this month. And yet I might, if I play my cards right. However, I really think that I'm not going to make it.

Although, if you count the writing I've done aside from NaNo, it's about 15,000, I think. Still not quite what I should be at, but at least I know it's not me just not writing.

Item the third: School. I'm ALMOST CAUGHT UP. I'm so close I can taste it. And yet... AND YET...

... I'd rather be playing ToS II. >.>
Between my ankle, my exhaustion, PMDD and the emotional volatility that comes with it, being pissed off at Abyss (THIS MEANS YOU, RIDICULOUSLY HARD TO NAVIGATE WORLD MAP), worrying about Cal, and wanting DESPERATELY to get an apartment but not having the financial capability to... I didn't even touch it.

My god, it's happening again. I can't do this. I'm too goddamn WEAK.

Anyone have any plans to move to this area anytime soon?

Uh-oh.

I'm a dumbass. That is all.
I need a better system for doing my math work. Y'see, being as this is an internet course and you're not supposed to use calculators, you have to do your best to show work. Considering that this class is "Basic Skills Math" and not, "HOW WELL CAN U USE A CALKULATOOR LOL" I wouldn't. Except for the fact that this shit's getting complicated, I'm 3 weeks into a 9-week course, and I'm already through half the notebook I bought for it.

So I'm using my calculator a LITTLE; I didn't use it at all when we were doing the four basic operations. I've proven I can, so to save time and trees, I'm using the calculator for that stuff, but doing the PROBLEM by hand. If that makes sense.

The problem is that, when it comes time to translate the work in the notebook to a .doc for submission, sometimes I will have NO FUCKING CLUE how I got the answer I did. I have it all written down, and the answer's correct. But what I write down doesn't seem to have anything to do with the final answer. I just had to re-do a problem, not because it was wrong, but because my "work" seemed to be nonsense.

And protip for the Pennsauken police: If you have nothing better to do than to detour PEDESTRIANS off a PUBLIC ROAD, you've OBVIOUSLY never been on Union Avenue, which CONNECTS to the road you're detouring pedestrians off of and is one of the main arteries in Pennsauken.

Get off your lazy fucking asses and DO SOMETHING about the fucking speeding problem. I'm not paying taxes so you can antagonize pedestrians for shits and giggles. DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB.
... it's going to be two days late. I can't stay up any longer. Not after two nights of wee small hours in a row.

I feel pretty damn pathetic that I, at 25, am actually thinking, "Damn, I'm not as resilient as I used to be." Of course, that might be, rather than not being as capable of holding ridiculous hours, I'm now smart enough to know not to try.

On the other hand, my dear ex, who will be turning 30 in a day (shitshit, need to find suitable e-card...) regularly stays up past 4 AM on the weekends. So I dunno.

Night night...
Tales of the World, PSP: Doing a multi-part side quest, lookin' for uber armors. You have to fight the boss for this thing, the Red Paladin, every time you go for a piece of the armor. One-on-one.

I've only fought him twice and I already have a tactic that will get me through the battle with minimal stress: Demon Fang, Demon Fang, block, apple gel. Rinse, repeat ad nauseaum.

I seem to recall a fighting game that, if you won a match by cornering the opponent and using a single attack to keep them there, your "victory light" was a hunk of cheese. I think that's appropriate here.
Yesterday I was REALLY busy, so I didn't have time to wash my mug before I left for the day. I left a sticky on the middle of my comp screen to wash it out before I made my tea today.

Last drink of the day was hot white chocolate. I don't ordinarily like white chocolate, but hot, in a liquid form, and with a generous spike of vanilla? YUM. So I get in today, immediately go for my tea box, and see the note. Oh yeah, gotta wash the mug first. So I take the mug into the bathroom to wash it.

So I'm washing white, sticky residue from my mug, and you can just guess what the first thought to cross my very juvenile mind was. Go ahead. Guess, and tell me what a child I am. XD

I'm going to try to do some schoolwork. Cal wants me to go to bed by 10 tonight. People, I had two cups of tea, a 20 ounce bottle of pepsi, a coffee, and now I'm having a 12 ounce can of pepsi. He's out of his fucking mind if I thinks I'm going to be able to sleep by ten.
I'm having a REALLY hard time staying focused. If I DON'T, I'm going to end up SEVERELY behind in school.

It's only 10, and I'm almost one one assignment. I can DO this. Just keep listening to mah music. That's all I can do. Moar music...

... which is, incidentally, the BoF 5 soundtrack. It's making me want to hit the game again. All of them have done that for me. It's weird, but I guess it proves that my heard belongs to Breath of Fire. I can fanboy the Tales games all I want; listening to the music doesn't make me want to drop EVERYTHING and play the games.
Calvin's the one who had to remind me, after becoming unreasonably enraged at my schoolwork and taking severe offense to stuff I would have normally found goofy, that I'm probably PMSing. It's kind of hard to keep track when I'm not taking my pills because it's NEVER been regular.

Considering that they're medically necessary, why aren't I taking them? Because I fuckin' lost them within an hour of picking them up. I suck.

In other news, I'm minty.

And my instructor hasn't replied to a question yet. It IS memorial day; but she never posted that she didn't have office hours today, and neither did my other instructor. If they don't, this is the FIRST time it hasn't been posted and I'm going to argue long and hard if I turn this in wrong.

Oh my...

There's a new "raid" on Gaia. It's not known who's behind it, but it seems that someone, or more than one someone, are using a bot of some sort to systemically find '03 and '04 users and attempt to brute-force hack them.

I wonder if my Joshua account is okay. Not that it'd matter much if he were hacked, as I moved everything off that account last year. Still, I'm thinking of going back to a ridiculously hard password.

And OH MY GOD. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the Gaia programmers REALLY CAN completely restructure the entire inventory system at your whim! It shouldn't be difficult at all!

... and I hate my school right now...

*smirk*

Calvin's fast asleep.

Calvin's got a camera on his phone.

Guess what the wallpaper on MY phone is?

Wha-?

... I'm working on the overdue math checkpoint. Multiplication.

Fucking basic multiplication.

Want to know how many of the check your understanding problems I got right the first try?

2/15.

...

... someone tell me why I should bother anymore...
... By massive stupidity?

Josh's Rant duJour. )

I'm gonna go bathe and try to work on schoolwork more.
Have a commenter meme.
Commentus~ Not that it'll get up to 20. I don't have 20 friends. XD )

WTF? How the hell do I make the most comments on my own journal, by FAR? :o Narcissism much? ^^;

I'm going to try to not focus on the many ways I suck today and work on schoolwork, or maybe some writing. I have writer's block with Kharlan; I've found the only way to break THAT one is to force it. It's not the best writing when I do that, but the TOS fanboy in me is in hibernation and I have no character development plotbunnies.

I might update my fictionpress account today. The chapter's only been edited and ready for be posted for a month, though, not like there's any big rush...

In the meantime, time to get ready for church. It's the last choir Sunday of the season; I have to go. Because God already knows He ain't seein' me until September nao.
