Well, finals are over. No more pencils, no more books, all that jazz. You can tell it's late when I start mixing my song lyrics. Still not quite sure how I feel about that. Hell, I'm not sure it's sunk in at all.

Today, or tomorrow, or however you define Thursday is going to be Massive Amounts of Packing Day. I'm almost done with my room, which means I need to pack the kitchen. I hate packing the kitchen with a vengeance, namely because a good portion of the stuff in it is mine. For those of you wondering why I'm posting the warning - and a warning it is - it's because packing stresses me out like none other. It's the biggest indication that finals are over and life is moving on, except while I still have to fit my entire life out here into a set number of boxes, I won't be going home and I won't be coming back to Pepperdine in the fall. It's scary and frustrating as all hell and a necessary evil. What this means is I'll be online, but I'll be anywhere from mildly to completely incoherent and might be leaning on people over AIM in overwhelming stress and woe. If you want to try to keep me sane, God bless you and I much appreciate the effort. If I bother the hell out of you, I'm sorry in advance.

I'm going to top this off with a todo list, because I need one of those and I'm keeping it here now that my white board is packed.

To Do:

- Pack remainder of room
- Pack kitchen
- Figure out who's taking what food in kitchen
- Clean out fridge
- Send Shannon's package
- Email work
- Do a load of laundry. Pack said load.
- Donate choir dress to Fine Arts office
- Find out about handicapped stuff for Granny
- Call Rent-A-Wreck
- Hand wash dresses

I'm sure there's more but I can't remember it at twenty past two in the morning.
You know life's been eating me alive when I don't update this journal in a solid week. There's something to be said for senior year of college, and I'm pretty sure that something is Dear God Why.

I finished and turned in my thesis on Friday, so that's over and done with. I'm also presenting it tonight at 7:30, if anyone wants to come down and see that little corner of madness. (Watch Kia talk about the internet for six minutes, as though she doesn't already do enough of that already!)

I'm still figuring out living arrangements and packing. Packing is what's going to kill me, I think. I need to figure out what to keep, what to toss, and what to pawn off on other people. After four years of college and my entire life as a military brat, you'd think I'd be used to this packing thing, huh. Doesn't mean I have to like it, especially since this is the end of an era.

Oh man am I gonna miss everybody ;~;

In order to forestall massive amounts of bawwww, uncertainty, and screaming over filling out the exit loans package, I present to you instead the other life eating project I only recently just finished: digital storytelling for my Writing with Technology class. Have fun.

You have no idea how hard it was to resist the temptation to put an A in that HELP.

I am finished with my thesis!...almost. This is where I start asking for favors. If anyone's got some spare time AHAHAHA yeah right I know and would like to look at my thesis, it's here. I have been told the conclusion needs an overhaul, but I don't see it; then again, I tend to hate conclusions in general.

Also, I need to do an abstract and a brief bio about me. The abstract won't be a problem. The bio, however, is a pain to write, given I hate writing about myself. Anybody have any suggestions or good examples?

I am so close to finished with this thing. So gorram close.

It's two-thirty in the morning and I've been running for about eighteen hours straight, so this'll be quick.

Convention! Left at 8:30, got there a bit after ten. Got raffle tickets for the chance to see Stan Lee. Shelled out $75 to get a photo op with William Shatner (we split that one down the middle and got a picture of both of us with him) and $35 for Jewel Staite (that was allll on my lonesome).

I hooked my pokewalker up to ten others, discovered that people actually do carry Rattatas around in those things, and got invited to a post-con Brawl party because of my geekiness. Given tonight's events, I had to decline. It was still awesome.

I shot a Stormtrooper in the face with a nerf gun and won a shirt for it. My sister drove a R2D2. Tons of Star Wars stuff going on there.

There wasn't a lot of cosplay, but what there was was epic. Saw a Lightening that was spot on. Also, TDF cosplay group. About went nuts and asked for lots of pictures.

I did not meet Adam West, but I did get ninja pictures of him. Got ninja pictures of Steve Blum, too. Not gonna lie; I didn't exactly want to pay through the nose for the opportunity to get pictures and autographs from most people.

I did not win the drawing to meet Stan Lee. :( My sister did, though, so I went with her. :Db He's a pretty cool guy in person. EXCELSIOR!

I have discovered the power of pretty-but-not-overtly-sexy girls at conventions. Evidently we are few in number and highly influential. Huz-zah. :Db All in all, con was good times. Very small, but very good times.

Choir concert was long, which was expected. It was also a massive heartstring pull, which was expected but not to that extent. Can't say I was expecting our choir director to cry while directing the last song, but it was his retirement concert. I'm sure that video will catch quite a few people crying and even more trying not to. It was lovely, though. I will miss choir. ;~;

Senior Ball was cut short by epic long choir concert but was also fun, short of being freakdanced all over by the guy in the zebra jacket. Thank goodness for chaperons. It was short but quite a bit of fun. Also, I've never been to a buffet where they give you to go boxes to bring the food home.

Day was busy as all hell but tons of fun. Tomorrow is homework time yaaaaaaay |D
I do either of those things, I freak myself the hell out. GJ, self.

Most of this is stuff I need to figure out and therefore goes under a cut. Yaaaaay lists.

The promised cut )

In case anyone was wondering why I'm such a basket case lately, that was pretty much it.

In other, more timely news! I once again need a phone partner at around nine a.m. PST Friday morning (which is either today or tomorrow depending on when you're looking at this entry). Same drill - about twenty minutes of conversation or however long it takes me to handle the 101. Let me know, yes?

My week has been nuts. ;;; CALM DOWN, WEEK! STOP THE MADNESS!

Sunday was, of course, fantastic. Time at Disneyland always is, as is dinner at the Blue Bayou. I do want to go to California Adventure again, though - it's been quite a while. Per usual, Space Mountain is fantastic and Captain EO is eighties and awesome. Good times. |D

Monday, my cold came back with a vengeance. I nearly fell asleep standing up in choir and I started shaking in my thesis class, to the point where I couldn't function. Of course, that made for an early night Monday and an email to my internship to get Tuesday off, because I seriously needed that day to recover. This, of course, means Tuesday was low-key, relatively sane, and virtually useless. Lots of sleeping did happen, though, and Dad was here for dinner, which meant Duke's.

And Glee premiered for this half of the season. I love Glee. So much. If you have not yet seen Glee, watch Glee. Glee Glee Glee. 8D

Today was insane. I know I'm working for four hours, but doing the quick half-skim reading that I do for for work for four hours straight is just. Argh. ;;; I was absolutely braindead by the time I was over, and it did not help that my middle appointment rubbed me wrong. He didn't really do anything wrong - he was just the type that I just did not get along with. Argh.

On the upside, there was a dance party tonight! Delta Tau Delta knows how to raise money for teenage rheumatoid arthritis, is all I'm saying. :Db

Also, tonight was Senior Celebration with Gamma Phi, which was pretty much free food and everybody telling everybody else how awesome they are and sharing memories. I love my sisters and they love me, so. Good times indeed. I shall miss them. ;~;

In geekier news, I finally managed to hatch all my eggs (all at once because I am an insane person)and finally got another female Eevee, so if anyone wants one of seven male Eevees with generic Christian male names (John, Jeff, Rory, etc), I shall be more than glad to give one to you. Of course, I hear Jolteons are pretty good, so I might go for one of those and see how things work out. IDK. I also managed to run into Entei and Raikou within twenty minutes and three routes of one another, so yeah. It's been a crazy night.

Oh! Anyone who has a Twitter! I have a favor of sorts to ask of you. I'm running the Twitter for my internship-come-job and it's still in it's beginning stages, so I'm trying to get it off the ground. If you guys wouldn't mind following it, it's going to be a lot of tech news and discussion topics and a bit of advertising, because we sell computer hardware, so if you know someone who's in the market for a TV or a laptop or a game system...well. |Db The Twitter name is eDEXdeals for the interested. Thanks in advance! :Db

And yes, with that I think it's time for bed. Anaheim Comic Con and Choir Concert and Senior Ball and goodness knows what else this weekend. Ahaha good times |Db

Incidentally, does anyone know how to revive writing inspiration? Mine's left me and I really don't want to leave that fic alone.
I really need to start putting more stuff in here. It's getting to be too long between posts, though it isn't as though I have much more to say than OH GAD LIFE IS EATING MY LIFE AAAAAAAAAA

I'm slightly busy. |D

Though I tell you what, Songfest is going to be awesome. If it weren't major spoilers, I'd rattle off the list of artists whose songs we're using for our group to show you just how awesome it is. I will say that I knew all the songs, I have all but one, and I am somewhat ashamed that I don't have that one because it too is awesome. I can, however, tell you the overall theme since that's been recently released: History In the Making.

Performances are next week. I am nervous as hell and so, so excited. *A*

In other news, thesis work is going slowly. Being an awful procrastinator might well have something to do with that. Job applications are going a bit better, but I still have to finish things for ICHC before I send them in. I need to get on that.

I also have a project to work on for my Writing for Technology class. It's a digital storytelling thing - I have to write a story and then put pictures and video and music and such to it. |D I'm thinking of writing about my recent trip to Disneyworld, since it's fresh and I have a metric ton of pictures and video and no shortage of Disney songs. That's either going to be fun or a pain in the ass. We'll see.

Finally, I keep running across this meme, so I suppose I should do it: When you see this meme, post a poem on your LJ.

It's All the Same to the Clam - Shel Silverstein

You may leave the Clam on the ocean floor
It's all the same to the Clam.
For a hundred thousand years or more,
It's all the same to the Clam.
You may bury him deep in mud or muck,
Or carry him round to bring you luck.
Or use him for a hockey puck.
It's all the same to the Clam.

You may call him Frank or Jim or Nell
It's all the same to the Clam.
Or make an ashtray from his shell.
It's all the same to the clam.
You may take him riding on a train
or leave him sitting in the rain.
You'll never hear the Clam complain.
It's all the same to the Clam.

Yes the world may stop or the world may spin
It's all the same to the Clam.
And the sky may come a fallin' in
It's all the same to the Clam.
And man may sing his endless songs,
of wronging rights and righting wrongs.
The Clam just sets - and gets along.
It's all the same to the Clam.
You know, if I'd known all my classes were going to be cancelled today, I would've called off work and gone to Disneyland with the rest of the Gallifrey attendees. Such is life, huh. XD I've got con prep to do anyways, so this was likely for the better. Yeeeeeeeayuh I'm stoked about Gallifrey tomorrow. :D

Aside from that, things have been relatively low-key around here. What-If Wednesday definitely ate my brain for a bit there, but I'm getting better. So far as classes and such go, it's been a lot of same-old-same-old. It's a very busy same-old-same-old, what with with a metric ton of reading and Songfest thrown into the mix, but it's still the same.

By the way, if you haven't bought Songfest tickets yet and you want to go, buy them. Saturday night's all but sold out already, and this year's show is going to be epic.

On an entirely different note, because of my internship, I will likely never be able to eat peanut butter again. For the love of all that is holy, guys, if you're going to sell your mouse and/or keyboard to a resale company, please clean it up before you do. That stuff is just gross.

Finally! Con update! For those of you who still don't know yet (and if you don't, where have you been), tomorrow at eleven a.m. my roomie, my little, and I are heading down to LA for Gallifrey One, the local Doctor Who convention. We'll be there all weekend, and there will likely be internet silence from me for the most part - I do have TxtLJ and a Twitter that I can update from my phone, but so far as responding to comments and such go, I'll probably not do much (if anything) until I'm home on Sunday. Internet costs moneys at the hotel, you see. If you need to get ahold of me, text me or dm me on Twitter. I shall return Sunday night or Monday morning with a metric ton of pictures and videos and such other things. :D

For those of you wondering what sort of shenanigans go on at said convention, I have examples from last year:





That is [livejournal.com profile] mrtonylee being the emcee and full of awesome in general and yes, he is the guy who signed my comic to Christine. Still not sure how I'm gonna bring that one up. XD

So yes! That will be this weekend, and Disneyworld afterwards. I cannot wait until Spring Break *A*
A few months ago, in October, I got food poisoning on a Sunday night. I missed all of my Monday classes, and as a result told my sisters that I couldn't go to the ATO mixer on Tuesday - I needed the time to do homework. I stayed home, got as much done as I could, didn't manage to actually finish anything, and was regaled the next day with stories and pictures of just how awesome that mixer was and it was such a pity I had to miss it.

Paixao's birthday was today. I got the notifs on the reserve post in my inbox, I checked an app - the others turned around too fast for me to catch - I saw the comm posts, and I heard firsthand how great everything was going.

I spent the entire day working on a project that I'm presenting tomorrow. I'm still not done.

Parallelism. It's not just a literary device anymore.

Let's be totally honest here: I've got nobody to blame for this one but myself. I volunteered to go first. I took a day trip on Friday instead of working. I honestly don't have the greatest work ethic either - I do procrastinate, and I get distracted. I also managed to bite off more than I could chew.

Strangely enough, none of this is making me feel better. Funny how that works, huh.

Before tomorrow, for this class alone, I need to:
- Read three articles
- Write responses to said three articles
- Print said responses and post them on Blackboard
- Either create a new blog or do some major maintenance on Typo Away, to include a new entry
- Do notecards for my presentation
- Figure out how to annotate a YouTube video
- Do an annotated bibliography for my presentation
- Figure out what a formal prospectus is
- Do a formal prospectus for my presentation

Between this class, my thesis class, three jobs, an internship, and my sorority...hell, I'll be amazed if I survive this semester, let alone with a social life.

And I get into these messes alllllll by myself.

Between this, worrying about the future and job applications I may or may not but really should do - I Can Has Cheezburger is hiring, did you know that? - and gorram RP pressure that I am putting on myself, including another bout of insecurity brought on by the eternal question of am I doing it right, I...hell, I might just go to bed. Goodness knows I don't sleep enough.
I really need to learn to edit my posts instead of spamming you all into oblivion, huh. XD

FIRST THING: I am teaching a class on the internet!

For porn, porn, porn, yeah I know, get it all out of your systems XD

I volunteered to do my presentation first for my Writing for Technology class, so a week from now I'm going to be giving a thirty-to-forty-minute-long presentation on internet culture, specifically how knowing the culture will help a writer write for and relate to (and possibly understand feedback from) their audience. Those of you who were wondering why I asked for memes the other day, this is it. I'm going to give them a basic rundown of well-known and oft-referenced websites and memes, including:

4chan
icanhascheezburger
ONTD
Failblog
FMyLife
MyLifeIsAverage yes I have seen MyLifeIsTwilight and if you suggest I show that to the class I reserve the right to stab you through the internets
Tv Tropes

rickrolling
macros
Chuck Norris
liek mudkips
Caramelldansen
all your base
im in ur base
leekspin
"...PROFIT!" lists

As well as a list of things to avoid:

/b/ and all other not work safe 4chan boards
goatse
/b/
tubgirl
/b/
two girls one cup
/b/

Guess who traumatized herself doing research for her anonymity paper. 8D

So, my wonderful flist, this is where I turn to you: what popular memes and websites have I missed that obviously need to be covered in class? Videos, text, pictures, anything is fair game, so long as it falls under "meme." Also, if anyone has any documentation of these memes going down - screencaps of the April Fool's Day when dA turned everyone's icon to a mudkip, or video of the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends float rickrolling everyone live during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - please link it, because that's the sort of thing that makes a powerpoint awesome. If anyone has anything that needs to be added to the AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE list, let me know that too, but please do not link them. Seriously. Please.

SECOND THING: [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti evidently has an auction for food products, and I would like to contribute. I can do cookies 8Db I'm not sure cherry bars will ship, since they have frosting, but magic bars, cheesecake cookies, and pumpkin butterscotch cookies should all ship pretty well. GUYS WHAT SHOULD I OFFER

Also! If you're offering something on the auctions, link your thread here! I should like to see and bid on things :Db
I had a moment last night. The students and former students know what I'm talking about: a moment in which a college student, nearly finished with classes and faced with the dilemma of what Real Life on the other side of graduation might be like, falls to their knees in an overdramatically overwhelmed manner and worries aloud and loudly about THE FUTURRRRRRRRRRE!

I went a little crazy last night.

Of course, it started with chatting with my mom about grad school, going in the same old circle of she-wants-me-to-apply-and-I-really-don't-want-to. After I got home from my midnight shift and found myself with too much time to think about it, I went looking for the two programs my Rhetoric and now Thesis prof recommended. Long Beach is accepting applications until May but has a pretty literature-based program, which I don't really want. Purdue has a good writing and rhetoric graduate program, with admissions due...tomorrow. This includes letters of recommendation, transcripts, and GRE scores.

I haven't taken the GRE.

Of course, looking all this up at half past one in the morning is terrible for one's self-esteem, so I decided to assague my worries by going on Twitter and making sure the job I wanted was still open.

It's not.

Cue me going AAAAAAAAAAA and searching around on the websites I frequent for job openings. I finally sent my resume in to deals.woot (yes, the same website that does shirt.woot) at two in the morning to apply for their Forum Moderator position. We'll see how that one goes.

The long and short of this is, I am a crazy person and my next conversation with my mother pertaining to grad school will probably not be a pretty one. Huz-zah.

On a happier note, Project Runway's new season starts tonight and I'm heading to Disneyland tomorrow with [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin. We've probably missed Tiana's Riverboat Jubilee or whatever it was, but it's still Disneyland with two Annual Passes and that is awesome.

Crazy times at Pepperdine High University.
Not too much detail, since I'm sure y'all don't care quite that much. XD

First of all, getting up early and having three hours of work before class is going to kill me. Just saying.

Writing for Tech was pretty laid back. She's asked us to email her our ideas for the class - what we want to cover, where we see it going, etc. Basically, we're building the syllabus as a class. The professor already really wants us to keep a blog (pardon me while I stare at both of mine...I'm overdue for a Typo Away post, huh), so I'm suggesting social networking sites as a big part of it. That's also why I asked for stuff about internet culture in my last post - I want to do a class or two about Things You Should Know About Internet Culture - we can probably relate it to knowing and writing for a certain audience - and mention a few well known sites/people/memes. I know there were several blank faces when I mentioned ICHC, and that is simply not acceptable.

Choir is choir and will be awesome. This is, of course, a given.

Thesis class actually looks like it'll be okay. The syllabus has a small writing assignment due every week (500-800 words, easy) and we've got a good deal of reading to do for the first half of the semester, but Goodman said that was mostly to generate discussion and ideas for people who didn't have a clue what they were going to do yet. I told her what I wanted to do, which is expand the paper I did on anonymity and the internet. I know I can do more research, Anonymous has done a hell of a lot more stuff since then, and I now have Twitter to analyze as well. She told me it was a solid paper to begin with and I should "have an easy semester."

That made part of me happy. It scared the hell out of the other part. When I start taking things easy, they don't get done. I might treat it as HOLY SHIT I HAVE TO WRITE A THESIS anyway in the hope that I get things started and finished in a timely manner.

So yeah, those are my classes for the semester. Huzzah. :D

And if I plan to go to the Utada Hikaru concert on the 18th I'd better get tickets, huh.
I suppose I should follow suit and put up a schedule for peoples:

MONDAY:
Work (Campus Operator): 9-Noon
Writing For Technology: Noon-2
Choir: 4-6
Thesis Class: 6-10

TUESDAY:
Internship: 8-5
Randomizer: Sometime in the PM

WEDNESDAY:
Choir: Noon-2
Work (Writing Center): 2-5:30
Work (Campus Operator): 6-Midnight

THURSDAY:
Work (Campus Operator): 9-Noon
Writing For Technology: Noon-2
Choir: 4-6

FRIDAY:
Internship 8-5

Yeeeeeeah I am a busy person |D

Also! For my Writing and Technology class, we're sending the professor emails about what we want to cover in the course and what directions we want the course to take. One of the things I want to talk about is understanding internet culture and some of the most frequent references/frequently visited sites. I want to talk about 4chan, icanhascheezburger, and the YouTube channel Know Your Meme, but I know there's a ton I'm missing. Can anybody think of anything that should be up there with internet culture?

EDITED FOR CLARITY: What I'm asking for is stuff that everyone online should know. For example, if someone professed to not knowing what ICHC stood for, you'd sit there with your jaw on the keyboard and go, "What do you mean you've never seen a LOLcat before? You are missing out!" and then proceed to drag them to the nearest browser and subject them to poorly spelled yet hilariously cute household pets. I am looking for Things Everyone Should Know About the Internet.

And I have choir in fifteen minutes so I had better go. |D
GUESS WHO KILLED THEIR STAGE DANCE FINAL

GUESS WHO KILLED IT

[/POINTS TO SELF]

YEAH BABY

Seriously, I think I flubbed choreography all of twice? In six dances? And they were small things that the video didn't catch, so. Huzzah. I'd call that a success. :D

...yes, there is video if anybody is desperate to see it. I'll figure out how to get all 457 MB of it up somewhere.

While we're talking about finals, the Intro to Acting final yesterday went just fine. I managed to convince everybody that I was completely out of my tree, which, given that the goal of the monologue was to convince people I was not crazy despite my subject material, was hilarious. I believe I'm looking at a solid A in both of those classes, huzzah huzzah. Now I have to study for and pass Lit Theory, my only written final, tomorrow.

In other news, SodaHead still hasn't gotten back to me despite the fact that I called them yesterday (rrrgh) and DEX told me Monday that they want me to get a pre-employment drug screening at least a week before they hire me. Okay, sure, cool. They also want me to go to a specific clinic in Oxnard, forty-five minutes away, to do it. Okay, not cool. Guess who just sent an email to get tomorrow's shift covered and is rolling her rear out of bed extra early to travel for a nearly two hour long round trip?

Swear to God, my roomie is a saint for taking me all these places. Definitely getting myself a car for next semester, even if I have to drag Chupathingy up here myself.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: Watch for a new Randomizer tonight! We're going into the studio soon's my work shift is over for the last episode of the semester. That'll be up later~

Speaking of music, indulge my curiousity, flist: who all uses iTunes? I should like to know. |D
Ohhhhh today was awesome. Church this morning was nice (even though an alarm mishap meant my roomie and I had twenty minutes to get ready beforehand), and the Pepperdine basketball game afterwards was also fun. I love going to athletic events - need to do more of them, in fact - and in an effort to get students to attend this game, which is right before formals, they were giving out free pie, free coffee/coffee drinks made to order (think portable Starbucks), and free ten-minute massages. Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the freebies, then thoroughly enjoyed the game. I love going to games - it gives me an excuse to get excited and yell like a crazy person. All that stress has to go somewhere! 8D

Cut short my time at the game in order to go to Jane Austen improv.

Yes, you read that right. It was an improv comedy show - an entire improv play in the style of Jane Austen. I absolutely loved it. Highlights included a brooding character with a penchant but not an aptitude for jokes (though the joke about bananas and "ap-peel-ing" came up more than once) and playing a card game called "'Round the Maybe." A maybe is evidently a small goat-like creature. Make of this what you will - we all highly enjoyed it. XDb

This was followed by dinner at an authentic Polish restaurant at the insistence suggestion of [livejournal.com profile] orelle_peredhil. I will dream about those potato pancakes.

And now I am here, working on my monologue analysis. I have to come up with long- and short-term background for the character delivering the monologue, who doesn't have a name, let alone any of that stuff. Sound familiar, anyone? XD

Tonight is the free breakfast (probably not going), my SLA's little get together (probably am going), and the return of the five-minute "rave" in front of the library (definitely going). Wonder how long it'll take Public Safety to break this one up. Either way, good times. :Db
Let me preface this with, I love my Stage Dance class. The people in there are great and fun and Bill is a great instructor and I am looking fun to our showcase on Tuesday.

That said, some of them make me want to wallbang like you would not believe. The phrase, I think, is "technologically inept."

I've been taking video of us practicing our dances so we can watch it at home and practice between classes, because we're doing six dances and that's a lot of choreo to retain. I have all the videos, and a week ago I zipped them into two .rar folders, uploaded them to SendSpace, and sent the link to everyone in my class with detailed instructions on how to download the files from SendSpace and unzip them. I also said to email me back if anyone had any questions.

You know who emailed me? Bill. He said everything worked perfectly and thanks for doing that! Thinking my job well done, I headed to class today.

Where over half the class told me they couldn't make things work. The files wouldn't download! They took forever downloading! (Well, yeah, it's over 150 MB of video in each one, I'd imagine that'd take a while.) They wouldn't unzip! They wouldn't play!

Guys. Our performance is on Tuesday. You have my email address! Hell, you have the email I sent you! Why on God's green Earth did you not email me back and tell me you had problems? We could have worked this out!

I've spent the past hour and some change uploading every video individually onto SendSpace, then sent out the links again with very detailed instructions on how to work things, along with very explicit instructions to email me back, whether they work or not. I want feedback, dammit. The only reason these aren't on YouTube is because Bill doesn't want his choreography on a public domain, which I can understand.

Then again, this respect for Bill may stem from the fact that he emailed me back.

Well, at least now I know where my Foxx muse came from.
Okayso. Here's the world my schedule for the next few days or so. Hopefully I can keep my brain straight. |Db

MY GOODNESS ONE WEEK LEFT. How time flies. :Db
Choir concert was a success! I am pleased. :3 Hopefully we can pick up a recording for it sometime next semester, because I'd love to have one.

I was very pleased with myself today! Monologue coaching went well, concert went well, no other classes aside from that, and the Christmas tree lighting was beautimous. Very very good day. Tomorrow is an interview with Sodahead.com, which is for an internets internship, which would be awesome. There is also a G Phi Christmas party, huzzah. Good times. :Db

And today's Woot shirt is awesome. Do want.

Oh hey um. Those who have read my EBA fic, I'm debating linking it on [livejournal.com profile] agentsarego. Y/N/M/WTF?

I suppose tonight's goal is to finish the post-structuralist paper and get sleep enough to be coherent tomorrow. Good times, good times.

I leave you with a bucketload of memes, because memes are fun:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, yamikonumber7 sent to me...
Twelve snakesonasoras drumming
Eleven viewtiful_jeffs writing
Ten drunkkitsunes a-reading
Nine heroes laughing
Eight scrubs a-singing
Seven books a-waitressing
Six prinnies a-roleplaying
Five do-o-o-onna andrews
Four tv shows
Three dresden files
Two kingdom hearts
...and a theatre in a kingdom hearts ii.
Get your own Twelve Days:


...is that the sporking theater, there?

In 2009, yamikonumber7 resolves to...
Stop roleplaying with eleventh_end.
Spend less time on shakespeare.
Give up waitressing.
Backup my bleach regularly.
Buy new heroes.
Drink four glasses of whedonverse every day.






Get your own New Year's Resolutions:


B-but I love [livejournal.com profile] eleventh_end ;~; AND WHY WOULD I GIVE UP MY SUMMER JOB unless I got a permanent or higher-paying job over the summer These are some strange resolutions. So very bizarre.

This last one merits a cut because it's ridiculously long. )

Kind of an eclectic mix there, huh. A lot of these are shows I watched with my family - we have a habit of discussing thing while they're airing. Yay family time. |Db

OH YEAH, ROCKAPELLA CONCERT ON SUNDAY! SOOOOOO STOKED *A*
Same thing again: bit of nausea, massive bout of chills, inability to sleep because of the former two items. I've been having a great past couple of days, let me tell you. I made an appointment with the Student Health Center this morning. Two hours and $120 later, they told me I'm slightly dehydrated and stressed the hell out and that's what's causing everything. Yee-friggin-haw. I skipped out on Lit Theory today, and hopefully I'll be well enough to get to choir, especially since our concert is on Thursday and it would reall suck to work on music all semester and then miss that. On top of that, working-on-paper-tiems were precluded by sick-tiems and going-to-see-the-doctor-tiems, so that still needs to happen. At some point. Yay.

I think I need another vacation. One where I'll actually be able to sleep and not worry about things.

Actually, I wound up with a bad case of the chills. Turns out not sleeping well for a week plus jet lag plus missing a meal plus venting one's spleen at one's sibling's romantic interests is really bad for your health. DO NOT WORRY, CITIZENS: I recovered enough to fly and I am now back at Pepperdine, putting off seven pages of rough draft due at two pm tomorrow.

Nobody ever said I was smart. |D

That said, it looks like a lot of my flist has come down with something disagreeable, whether it be a bad cold, a bad case of stress, or some homicidal mixture of the two. I intend to fix this!

Or. You know. Provide a distraction. I'm good at that.



D'AWWWW LOOK AT THE CUTE DISTRACTION ♥

And now I trundle off to stare at seven pages of rough draft and urge them to write themselves. Feel better, all ♥
