athra: ([randy] monopoly board)
So [ profile] imthelobster and I went to visit [ profile] hope_guides_me over the weekend, which was so much fun. We just hung around and played games and chilled. Someone else actually wanted to play Monopoly! That never happens. Mostly, though, it was just awesome to finally meet Crystal. ♥ Her kids, by the way? The most freaking polite, well-behaved, and sweet boys ever. I still don't want kids, but if I did, I would want kids like hers!

Now it's back to the real world... James and I are planning on trying to sell our place in the very, very near future, so the plan is to do as much work as possible in the next week or two in order to be able to actually list it and show it and such. I'm really hopeful that we'll be able to sell quickly, but we'll see how it goes. It would be so nice to be out of this place, though... I'm sick of owning.

Today, though, the plan is to get myself ready for an interview tomorrow... I've lost two, almost three, pant sizes since the last time I bought something appropriate for interviewing in. This is both good and bad: I'm thrilled with my weight loss, but damn if I don't hate clothes shopping! But [ profile] fluffymaru is gonna come with me to the mall (I have a gift card to Sears, so may was well use it for this) so we should be able to have a good time despite the clothes shopping bit :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] fluffymaru!!! ♥ ♥
athra: ([Buffy] AK)
I always THINK about opening up Semagic and making an actual update, and I never seem to get around to it. So I'm going to try to actually do it this time!

Fannish out of the way first:

Okay. So not only am I getting a new HARRY POTTER OMG (BOOK AND MOVIE!), but the new Weather Warden book comes out, the new ABVH book comes out (which, I know, I KNOW it's going to suck, but it's EDWARD and dammit, I can't help but hope at least a LITTLE wtf) AND. AND AND. There's going to be a special issue ABVH comic about the first time Anita met Jean-Claude! vbsdjkvbdfbnjnJHBHBCHGBK WEEEEEEEE!! omg that excites me to NO END.
Could this summer be any better for fandom?

ALSO. The Buffy Season 8 comic -- The Long Way Home -- is AWESOME. At least, the first issue was. omg I LOVED IT. LOOOOOVED.
And I have seriously missed Buffy. Like... whoa. HELLO MY WONDERFUL ORIGINAL FANDOM I LOVE YOU TO PIECES. (I want to upload some new Buffy icons now vbjvbjkdfbj. I think my icons might need to have a makeover.)
I believe Lisa and I are planning a major Buffy marathon after she moves in. It will be AMAZING. and cracktastic, but that's amazing, too. XD

Okay, and in other news, but still fannish news... I have become addicted to a new series. ::facepalm:: It's all Nicole's fault!
But yeah, Criminal Minds? Is AWESOME. And I am more than a little in love with Reid. D:

Work is going... okay. haha, these super annoying girls on my team got bitched out today, which was really kind of amazing. XD TAKE THAT, LOSERS.

Yeah, see? I'm losing my will to update. :/


I? Am going to Japan. Yes. In like... whoa. SO SOON. April 2nd we leave.
It's all kind of amazing and I'm terribly excited, though I still find it hard to believe it's true and I will probably continue to feel this way until I've been in Tokyo for a couple days, haha. but, basically? I have the best friends in existance. ♥ to Nicole and Casey, yes.

Well, I still came closer to a real update than I have in a while? heh.
athra: ([misc] xmas)
omg. I got home last night and was barely even on my computer? Blasphemy!

Anyway, I have a little time before work to post this...

Went to Kobe and The Village last night with Nicole and Casey, which was awesome. :) I had a bit of a headache (which I still have today...) so that sucked, but I had a good time. I finally got my charm bracelet going!! I am very excited about this. And I got fudge... which I have yet to eat, but mmm, looking forward to that. :)

Back at their place, we exchanged gifts... I got the Blue Sun shirt! :O :O bvdjksbvd I have been wanting that shirt for a long time, so I was very happy. :D

Also, for those that don't know: our T-Mobile service got turned back on, so my old phone number is working, if you want to call. I still have the temp phone activated, too, so either number will work for the moment... woo. :)

I'll be gone the rest of today and most of tomorrow, so I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas -- or a Happy Holiday, for whatever you celebrate!
athra: ([randy] I love Nicole more)
Total and complete GIP. :D
athra: ([BJT] eyrien prince)
Time to update? You bet!

I don't really remember what I updated about last time. hmm.

I did end up signing up for [ profile] yuletide, and I'm happy about what I get to write. :D Chances are I'll be cursing myself for this later, but for now it's all sunshine and roses. hahaha.
(If you're my [ profile] yuletide santa and you read this: pretty much everything makes me happy. Het, slash, gen... whatever. Hardcore or G rated... I am seriously easy to please. But if you're writing AB:VH, plz do not be making Edward gay? kthx.)

Umm. I had a really awesome Halloween night, and a really horrible few days at work. (The work load tonight was ridiculously large, and most definitely transferred over into tomorrow, and possibly also Monday morning, which blows so hard I don't even have the words.) I am, however, looking seriously into getting a second job. We'll see.

I finished my take home test for Western Civilization (thank god) which consisted of ten short essays and three longer ones. wtf, why did I put it off? And speaking of putting things off... I still have to do my paper, which is also due tomorrow. o.O wtf.

Some pictures of our Halloween stuff: here )

woot. ::runs off::
athra: ([misc] legendary)
A general note to the public: please disregard that last entry. [ profile] barbed_whispers thinks she's funny, but she's actually not. :)

I had... a really, really good day today. Hung out with [ profile] fluffymaru. :D We went to some outlet mall, which was FAILURE, buuut we decided to head down to Downtown Disney after that. Well, the Village. Funny, 'cause I do Pleasure Island often enough, but we're always there when everything closes... anyway, so I hadn't done it in a while.

Man. I just... I LOVE Disney. I love living in Orlando, I love the theme parks, I love PI, I love the Village, I love... everything about it, really.

So we ate at Rainforest Cafe... which was really good, but omg, it was COLD! brrr. But, still, good food, so yay! Went to the Pin Traders.. >.> omg, I spent too much money there. There are a lot of REALLY nice pins out right now, though! Like... I could have easily bought so many more than I did. THE HALLOWEEN TINKER BELL IS SO MUCH LOVE!!!

Spent a good deal of time in Wide World of Disney, too. So many things that I wanted, and had to put back. ;_;

Anyway, I guess we didn't do anything overly exciting, but it was just... a really, really fun day, which is something I have't had in a little while, so yaaaaaay. :D Although now I am SERIOUSLY hard up for more Disney time... omg is it the 20th yet? MICKEY'S NOT-SO-SCARY, HERE I COME!

In other news: NaNo season is upon us once more. I really need to decide if I'm even going to attempt it this year. It's the third of October, and I haven't even been on the website yet. I feel very weird. :/
athra: ([H&C] searching)
Today... weird. Just weird. I dunno.

Work was okay, though. Even if I spent a good deal of it on the floor fighting with a stupid disorganized filing cabinet. -_-

I'm pretty sure I completely bombed my Western Civ test. Yay?

But, I got an 87 on my second math test! Not as good as the first one, but not bad, anyway... (I got a 92 on the first one. I'm not sure I ever announced that here?)

I have a new layout! Check it out: [ profile] getaway_machine. I got [ profile] barbed_whispers to make it for me, because she loves me, no matter what she says.

Heroes was good. I guess. I dunno, I'm enjoying it but not LOVING it and I'm waiting for it to 100% capture me. I'm still liking Hiro quite a bit, though.

Much ♥ to [ profile] fluffymaru... just because. :)

And to [ profile] notworthy... you're still one of the best damn writers that I know, girl.

Meh. I don't think I have anything specific to talk about. yay for boring entries.
athra: ([misc] Sakura)
I guess I should do an update, since I haven't in a while.

First things first: much love to Nicole and Casey for throwing me a birthday party. :D I had a lot of fun, even if Trick Shots fails like a failing thing. And thanks to you guys who came, too. :D

School has started again. I've been to two of my four classes so far... I'll go to the other two today. My math professor seems AWESOME, even if it is math. But that should make the class better! Because even if I hate the subject material, I like him, so maybe I won't dread going to class every week. My Western Civ professor is less awesome, which makes me SO MAD at myself, because the prof I had at UCF was so cool, and I fucked that up. ergh. Still... doesn't seem like it'll be bad. Essay tests, which made a lot of people groan, but dude, I LOVE those things. And only one paper, 2000 words, which wtf, is SHORT. I'm not worried. Plus, I LIKE history, even if I generally like it a little more modern than ancient Sumerarians, but whatevs. We'll get into Greek/Roman stuff eventually... although she said we probably won't make it to the Reformation and Renaissance. Oh well.

We'll see how U.S. Government and Religion goes today then, eh?

In other news, work has been... insane. They just downloaded a new timeclock system... and you'd think people were morons, I swear. You push the "START WORK" button to begin your shift. What a concept! I hate them all. If anything, this new timeclock is less complicated than the old one, where you had to push "F10". Whatever, I hate them all.

Although, it DOES suck that no one bothered to give any of Clerical any training, which means that we don't know how to get to any of our reports. FUN. But whatever, I'm on vacation now, so hopefully they'll have it figured out by the time I get back, eh?

Speaking of vacation... OMG DRAGON*CON SOON! I am so excited. Really. I should probably make myself a checklist or something, though, or I'm likely to forget something, which would not be cool. ergh. And it would be really nice to have a CAMERA CORD, so that I could have nothing on my memory card and plenty of room for pics! And so that I could DOWNLOAD THEM when I got home! UGHHHH that is so aggravating, because I STILL haven't found it, and a replacement one from Best Buy is like... $30. wtf?

OH. My tamagotchi (Lilly) had a baby! it was so funny. This other random tamagotchi shows up, and then a screen that says Love? and has me pick yes or no. So, for kicks, I pick yes, right? And then it shows them together with a heart over their heads... AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES BLACK. AND THEN THERE ARE FIREWORKS. omg, they were so having sex! And when the lights came back on? The other tamagotchi was GONE and there was a baby next to Lilly! omg the bastard left her a single mom! rofl. And when she feeds the baby, it kind of looks like she's puking on it. There's still some question as to what the baby will be named. He's a boy... I'm thinking of following in the VMars tradition and going with Wevil. (only one 'e', because it has to be five letters or less.) ahaha, I love this thing.

I know I had other things to update about... bah. This is what I get for not updating every day.

Random: If you hadn't noticed yet, I changed my layout. I think it's very pretty now! I probably won't keep this up for long, though, since it's an eljay default and that kind of bugs me, but at the same time I really like it... so we'll see!
athra: ([Halo] neat colors)
Okay. So for those of you who haven't heard yet through the grapevine or whatever, I won't have internet until Thursday. Next Thursday. A freakin' week from now. I am not pleased about this, to say the least, but you do what you gotta do, hey?

So I'm at the library right now. I was supposed to be registering for classes at Valencia, but Atlas is still down, the stupid thing, so I figured I would take some time to update real quick.

I've moved into my apartment! I'm happy about that, muchly. I think it looks nice, too. My mom was the best mom ever and took a half-day at work so that I wasn't alone with the movers, which I appreciated so much, since I've never done anything like that before and it was odd. And then Nicole & Casey, being the awesome friends they are, came over when I got out of my orientation and helped me unpack some of my boxes and set a few things up and just hang out and whatever.

I'm going out with my dad, stepmom and grandmother today to pick up some essentials for living... like pots. and a microwave. So I can freaking EAT, because sandwiches are going to get old fast, I am quite certain.

Orientation at Valencia went... boringly. Heh. As mentioned, though, I still haven't been able to register for classes, which is so ridiculous. Ugh. But... whatever. I'll get it done, and at least I'm not behind, because no one can register right now. Which makes me feel better.

So mostly I've just been busy with work, and setting myself up for school, and moving in, and all that jazz. I miss being online, though. :( and omg I haven't talked to [ profile] barbed_whispers in DAYS, I think I might be dying. booo. But I'll have internet again in a week! I keep telling myself that to try and make myself believe it's a short amount of time or something. It's not really working. :/

I'm sure I had more things to update about, but I'm short on time right now and just wanted to get an entry out there so you guys didn't think I'd dropped off the face of the planet or something. And sorry I wasn't really able to read my flist very well... I skimmed, but I skipped a lot. If I missed something important, comment?



HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] intotheheart!


pee ess: I have an awesome new Halo icon, I do, I do.
athra: ([Tenipuri] Atobe Shine On)
I move into my new apartment tomorrow. ::flips out only a little:: They pissed me off today, though, by not letting me pick up my key until tomorrow morning, which I think is absolute bullshit since my move-in date is today, even if the moving company isn't coming until tomorrow. WHATEVER. I just can't wait to be in there and have all the stress from this shit out of my life.

I did get a chance to peek inside and see it for the first time, though, however briefly. It's a little small, but so what, yeah? It's two bedrooms, though, and it's... haha, I don't know. Normal. White walls, beige carpet... I'll take pictures when I get the chance. I think, mostly, I'm just excited to be able to live by myself for a while. (Though, I won't lie -- I can't fucking wait for [ profile] barbed_whispers to move her ass down here already, because that's going to be awesome. Or terrifying. Actually, probably both!)

I have to admit, though, hanging out with Nicole and Casey this whole week has been a helluva lot of fun... although I'm sure they're ready to be rid of me, hahaha.

Anyway. I had my first Monday of my new schedule at work today... went pretty well. I felt bad for Melissa and Molly, who were both having kinda bad days, but I had a nice lunch with Carrie and Brandy and have I mentioned lately how much I actually do like my job, and especially the people I work with? I mean, sometimes I hate my job, and sometimes I wake up and just don't want to go, but I always like the people I'm working with, and that's a huge plus.

Oh! And I have Valencia orientation tomorrow, too! Oh, good lord. ::falls over::

And I just have to add this: [ profile] simplykatie, you are a wonderful person and those people are just assholes who don't deserve your time, okay? I wish I could be there for you today, but you know I'm there in spirit and I'm thinking about you and I ♥ you. I wish you were online more, because I miss talking to you. :( And we need to talk about script! Yesss. Anyway, I hope you feel better because those people are so not worth getting upset over, seriously.

That said, I think I'm done here. :)
athra: ([misc] everything is made from dreams)
1. Decent day at work, shitty day with father. Yay?

2. Played SO MUCH Halo tonight. Woo! Very theraputic. Very fun. [ profile] fluffymaru is my favoritest campaign buddy EVAH. ♥

3. [ profile] barbed_whispers is discovering her love for VMars. Hee! Score one for me!

4. SO MUCH to do tomorrow. Don't really want to think about it. I need to sleep, though... which is probably okay since I am SO FREAKIN' TIRED. What's up with that, body, siriusly?

5. It's kind of funny how I have other things to update about, and yet have no interest in putting them on lj anymore. :/ Or maybe I just don't like thinking so much! Because that tends to lead to bad things... apparently. So, I'll just stop that, then.

6. I know I already posted about this... but HAPPY BIRTHDAY TORI, I ♥ you like CAH-RAZY, you know? XD
athra: ([Tenipuri] Fuji - in the eyes)
So a con report is kind of unnecessary, since I was barely even at the con, but whatever. Here's what I've been doing the past few days?! heh.

I guess I should cut this, it is kind of long... )

Anyway, yeah, Dragon*Con stuff will be heating up, now, and I'm really kind of looking forward to that. I'll be pulling my new sewing machine out of the box for the first time here soon, and I can't wait! :D :D :D

ALSO. Casey sucks at Ninja Gaiden! hahaha (I'm kidding, Casey. :P )

Okay, it's starting to storm pretty bad, and we might lose power, so I'm going to post this before it all disappears on me, because that would SUCK.
athra: ([DoC] sweet until I cut you)

I've only missed them JUST A LITTLE. >.>

Oh man last night was INSANE. And SO MUCH FUN. I am CAH-RAAZYYYYY. WEEEEEEE. And? I love you, Smarch. :)

I am very bouncy right now. ::bounce::
athra: ([misc] Still not king)
Yesterday was an adventure, man. An adventure of IDIOCY and... being RAINED ON. yeah. good times. Except... you know, really not.
Whatever, man, it's ALL GOOD. Or somesuch. (And I will never walk out of any house ever without my keys in hand ever again.)

I really cannot wait for Nicole and Casey to be back. :( I MISS YOU GUYS. So feel special. Or something.

Have to work today. woooo.
athra: ([misc] will be boring)

But in other news... Nicole and Casey's cats? Ridiculously adorable. Kisa just whores herself out for attention, and Dee can't seem to choose between being needy and being pouty... I love them. :)

I feel like I haven't been updating a lot, but I don't know what to say.

Life's been weird the past little while.

I don't even think I care who wins American Idol tonight.

Work is going awesomely, which is exciting.

I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going to be living.

And... yeah.
athra: ([Firefly] can't take the sky)
So, since Nicole had to go and be whiny about how my birthday wish post fonts keep getting bigger (and she's wrong, I use the same size every time...) I figured I'd do this.

[ profile] fluffymaru, YOU ROCK!!!

There. Now you can feel special. XP

Anyway. I had a great time last night, actually, despite some initial "blah" feelings and not really wanting to do anything.

I can't find my damn cord to connect my camera to my computer. ;_; As soon as I do, I'll have pictures... we got some awesome ones, and we all looked hot, if I do say so myself... (and, obviously, I do.) Anyway, much ♥ to everyone who went to PI last night, for just generally making me feel better, even if they didn't realize they were doing it.

Also, love for [ profile] barbed_whispers, who always knows what to say to make me laugh. (Didn't you know? Asking me if I have a brain always works! What a loser.)

I went out with my mom today to look for places to live and whatnot. Found a couple places I really like... looking at townhomes right now, since my dad would really like to buy. There's at least three that I liked a lot that I'm pretty sure he'd be willing to spend the money on. We'll be going out this week sometime, when he can get out of the office early, so he can look at them and make a decision. wooo. If not, then we'll look for a short-lease apartment, I think, so that we can keep looking at houses or something. So that's... pretty exciting, I guess.
athra: ([HP] bugger and disaster)
WOW today has been one hell of an interesting day.



I <3 JACON. Really. Really. ::keeps saying it:: ::even means it most of the time::

I <3 [ profile] np_hogwarts, too. REALLY. (Thank god I can mean that seriously now, because I certainly wasn't earlier, but yeah, I really do.)

Also, just a note... [ profile] barbed_whispers, [ profile] fluffymaru, and [ profile] raven_annabelle... I love you three. A lot. Don't know what I'd do without you.
..and that's it for my bit of sappiness, so take it while you can. XP

::goes to bed::
athra: ([misc] boo whore)
So. [ profile] barbed_whispers nudged me, so I guess I should post.

Even though I have no idea what to post about. Right then.

Life is... going on as usual? I go to work, either have a good time or don't, come home and get on the computer, and occassionally hang out with people just to be different. [ profile] takarakanashi came over on Tuesday, which was fun, and then [ profile] fluffymaru and I hung out yesterday and today, which is always fun and doesn't happen nearly often enough anymore. :(

Yeah anyway. See, this is why I don't update. I always think I have something interesting to talk about, but I really don't.

Yes, I'm still obsessed with that rp [[ profile] np_hogwarts] and the people I know through it [<3 to [ profile] drunkoncheese] and that's okay.

I very much love [ profile] bjt_fan, too. <333333333 yeah, that comm ROCKS.

JACON is close. ndjvbfjdsn.

And I'm broke again. ::facepalm:: WHATEVER, BANK, WHATEVER.

...cosplay plans still in the works, though. haha, wow, I kind of suck. List soon-ish? Maybe. WHATEVER.

Okay I posted. So Lis can STFU. woo.

athra: ([HP] hero who conquered voldy)
Wow, so I fail at updating lately, huh?
Not much has been going on, though, other than the same usual stuff. Been watching Fushugi Yuugi with Nicole... want to see the reeeest.

And! I get to meet [ profile] takarakanashi for the first time next Tuesday, and I am so excited. And we were talking today, and we shared what scares us most in the Disney theme parks. So, I was wondering. What scares you guys? haha, I'm totally serious, I want to know! So comment and tell me.
For the record, for me it's Small World. Yes. CREEPY. Better than it used to be after rennovations, but still.

In other news, happy birthday [ profile] mercurial_kel! I ♥ you!
