Dollhouse - WTF?

My body continues to revolt, but I think I'm winning.

TMICollapse )

Also? Neti pots. Neti pots are friggin' amazing. Still haven't quite figured out how to avoid getting at least a little covered in saline, but at least I can actually BREATHE now. That's a plus.

Dollhouse - WTF?

I am sick and one of the symptoms is turning into a whiny bitch about being sick. Ugh.

This whole cold just kind of struck me out of nowhere, and struck me hard. And naturally, because my body is all kinds of subtly fucked, it's going to take me forever and a day to recover. I just really want to be out of the "coughing at the slightest provocation" phase already and be done with it. It's so fucking irritating and I have no idea how I've managed to get ANY sleep at all these last couple of days. It's to the point where I'm barely even coughing up phlegm anymore. It's just coughing for the sake of coughing. :| :| :| And earlier it was so bad I actually literally pissed myself and had to change my underwear. Whoo, fun.

At least this is happening now, during Spring Break. Hopefully by next week, I'll be completely out of the woods and only dealing with trying to get my voice back. I can dream, anyway. At least, I can try to dream, seeing as I've gotten very little sleep lately. D: What happened to Spring Break being all about sleeping in until the late hours of the day? Fucking harrumph, I say.

On the upside? I collected on Avon payments from my neighbors! I feel as if I've accomplished something. I'll deposit them tomorrow, provided I can get up early enough to head out with my mom when she takes my brother to get his eyes checked.

It's a question for the Ages, I guess.Collapse )

Oh, the woes of trying to cater to my lust while at the same time being a completely awkward spaz.

How do people ever get around to having sex, much less into meaningful relationships? Is there just some cheat code I can enter that will make it 10,000 times easier to get laid? :|

Time now for a bit of emotional purging.Collapse )

Ugh, I need to go to bed. I've begun to mope. :|

Dollhouse - FTW

(no subject)

Y'know, I always thought that if anyone in this family was going to get drunk enough to actually self-narrate their every moment, it would be me?

Turns out it was my brother instead. Hm.

Also, it is really as aggravating as the Family Guy segment makes it seem. >.>

However, that aside, this was a good New Year's Eve full of explosives and food and booze! Now to sleep it all off and then hang out with my neighbor's across the street for a New Year's Day feast. Should be awesome.

Killjoys - Santa Death Defying

(no subject)

Trying to take my sexual life in my own hands is still difficult.

Also, why am I such a good writer except when it counts? This is why I tend to forget I have an OK Cupid account, isn't it? /o\ But this guy is so super cute. Like, "I want to corrupt you just a little bit with all the sexual knowledge I've collected in lieu of having actual sex because you're three years younger than me and look cute enough to need corrupting." That kind of cute. But I can't put that in a message! It might scare him off.

Harrumph. :|

In other news? Christmas was pretty good. I passed all my classes this semester, and next semester looks like it's going to be awesome. We're going to spend New Year's here at home, which means we're going down the street to Rich's for his fireworks extravaganza! And Mom is going to cook a pork roast, so hooray!

Now if only there was still coquito left in the house. I drank the last of it tonight. D:

I have so many thoughts and feelings about this CHristmas. Really, the last two months in general. But it's all bundled up in wordless-ness at the moment. If they take shape, I'll write them down.

Until then, back to figuring out how to craft the perfect message that will not scare away this cute boy.

Theatre Class Woes

Character analyses for acting class are great, until I get to questions eight and nine.

Eight asks for a family background. Nine asks for a closeness approximation with each of the character's family member. These questions always make my head hurt. They're things I prefer developing and working on over a longer period of time. I mean, I barely have the shape of certain characters' family trees down, never mind figuring out how close they actually are to their relatives.

At least if I get it down now, the second/final draft won't be so hard to reinvent. And it's better that I finish and turn it in late as opposed to not at all, right?

Plus the faster I finish it, the faster I can get back to writing.

Dollhouse - Not Broken

Been meaning to post this for a while, but...

The realization that I am presently in a much better emotional/mental space than I was a year ago is really nice.

I know I still have a lot of developing to do and a lot of lessons to learn or re-learn until they stick (primarily, how "letting go" does not always mean "losing forever"), but I'm content with where I am right now. The rest is a matter of baby steps.

I haven't used this in such a long time that I think it's time to get a fall-appropriate layout for it. Bah.

So much has gone down. I'm taking part in the haunted house at school! It's the production of the campus's drama club. Naturally, I couldn't resist being part of it. The theme is Malice in Wonderland. I get to be the Duchess and get to roast a baby. Which just continually reminds me of Eddie Izzard's joke about putting babies on racks and how they taste of chicken. (Just watch Dressed to Kill. It'll make more sense.)

This morning sorta sucked, mostly because I ran out of Pristiq and then Walgreens had a glitch in their computer so my insurance didn't show up and they wanted to charge us $147.00 for the 30-day refill that should only cost me $6.50. Dealing with the pharmacist over the phone with nothing but coffee in your belly when you're barely conscious anyway at ten-to-nine is something I'm not very good at. So I had a frustrated cry and went to school and thought about how I was going to flay the next pharmacist to dare try getting me to pay that much money for medication I need to keep stable.

Luckily, no flaying occurred. The glitch was fixed and I got my meds, so I will be avoiding the same sort of spiral I fell into around this time last year. Which is great because I've got a wedding to look forward to on Sunday! I'm excited. I just hope I have enough eye shadow primer to ensure that my makeup stays flawless despite all of the crying I'm sure I'm going to do...

Other things I'm looking forward to? There's going to be a drag show on campus next week as part of the school's Coming Out Week events. I was going to participate, but the show runs through the time I have acting class and I have my midterm in that class next week. And a monologue to perform on Monday. Ee. I hope I remember everything. I did fine in the rehearsal. We'll see how it goes.

Oh! Also! I really, really, want to bake this month. All goes well, I'm going to send all my friends Halloween-themed cookies. I already have the cookie cutters... Now I just need a decent recipe. And maybe to figure out if anyone is allergic to any specific baking items. But other than that, baking! Treats! Yes!

First Day of School

- Walked into the right course, in the right room, but at the wrong time. I was an hour and fifteen minutes early.
- The professor I actually have for acting class is way cooler than the one I accidentally went to? Because like...the teacher for the 11am class gave off a kind of Sander Cohen vibe. Kind of creepy. >.>
- I've decided I'm going to audition for the plays the drama department is putting on this semester. They want a 1-2 minute monologue. I think I'm gonna do either Clarice's monologue from Silence of the Lambs or just say fuck it and do Andrew Ryan's opening monologue from Bioshock, because I remember that one the best and the audition is on Wednesday.
- If I don't get the part, I'm offering myself for tech and box office stuff.
- I also need to start thinking about a monologue for Acting I. The professor's bringing a bunch of plays we can look through, but I found one here called Ludlow Fair that seems kind of interesting... Might have to look it up.
- I have to get up at six in the morning tomorrow to get to Business English on time. Bleeeeeh.
- Oh, also, I found two dollars that I didn't know I had. Huzzah!
- And Dance of the Crows is going well, too. Double-huzzah! I even have a table of contents for it. Go forth and read! Enjoy! Tell your friends!
