I'm working my way through The Next Generation and I'm surprised by how many I actually don't recognize. I'm guessing because I missed a lot of the early seasons. Things are getting more familiar as I get further into it. It's nice to watch a series that I really love, but don't feel quite so invested in, at least not fandomwise.

There isn't much else going on right now. I'm on a standstill right now in regards to graduate school, waiting to hear about financial aid stuff. There are so many reasons why I want this to work out!

On the writing front, I'm still incredibly blocked due to my job slowly killing me, but I have felt some sparks of life in my brains lately. Mostly for little off-shoots of fics I've already written, but it feels nice to write again. I've gotten a great deal of unexpected commentary on Soul Piece lately. That story has been on my mind a lot. No idea if it will make something happen, but I'm reading it again in order to get back in the groove. I'm at the part where Cas is asking Mary if she'll have another kid so Dean won't be lonely. Dumbass.

So yeah. The Reds are trying to become mediocre. Although they've perked up in this series against the Giants. Here's hoping.

Okay, back to Star Trek. I don't have to be back to work for over 24 hours. /bliss

A hello

I need to remember to update this at least once a month for pete's sake.

A short update of my life is..."I'm busy." Thankfully got a new job so I won't be kicked out of the house, but I'm still adjusting to the new schedule. The worst part is I can't find the mental energy to write very often. I'm still shooting for finishing a spn_j2 BigBang, but we'll see! Once I have less to do in a month or so, I should have more time for writing and I gotta say, I can't effing wait.

My job is not exactly thrilling, but I like a goodly amount of my coworkers and it gets faster each time, so I suppose I'm settling in okay. Still on the lookout for something better, but for now, it's good.

And...let's see. Yeah. Hi!

I keep falling down. First on icy pavement and nearly broke my leg. Then today, I tripped over a stupid spike sticking up out of the ground. Dad bought me some galoshes and they seem to make me trip more than my regular shoes.

Honestly, I just think the earth desires me and keeps pulling me towards itself.

At any rate, my leg is now in a lot of pain. Meh.

But no matter. Today is a productive day! I will finish my homework early! If it takes until the last bus leaves campus, I will finish. Then tomorrow I can write. I'm doing a verse deluge.

The new place rocks, but looks pathetic with our four pieces of furniture. It's definitely a work in progress and having privacy/independence is worth it.

Wow, I just chose my icon and now I desperately miss Doctor Who.

/random update is random

I really need to remember to post in here more often.

So hi!

There isn't much going on in my life at the moment. Things are coming on the horizon and much planning is being done, but for right now, right this second, I'm having a Stargate:Atlantis phase.

I'd forgotten how much I adore this show. Also, how wonderful it is to watch a show that doesn't make me want to tear my skin off my face due to angst. There are some darker moments in SGA, but for the most part, it's forward-thinking and uplifting(ish) like many space exploration shows are. Which is probably why that's my favorite genre.

Other than that, I'm pretty much just waiting to see if Joey Votto was voted MVP, trying to teach the cat not to eat my feet and gearing up for the months to come.

How are you all?

My job search continues.

I had an interview the other day, but no news on that front other than that it went well. I'm hoping for a call-back.

Tonight, I'm updating a bunch of verses fic and writing things for some people who made awesomely requests.

I need to remember to update my LJ more often. *hugs all you people*

Kentucky, check. Cincinnati, not so much. Watching Philly v. Dallas. Don't care too much, so the decision is based on which uniform is uglier. i.e. go Dallas.

Writer's block again. Switched a scene from Dean's POV to Castiel's and it's going better. Someday going to write a fic from the POV of Castiel's trenchcoat.

If my compy cord doesn't stop falling out of my computer, I may be forced to kill someone.

3rd and 24, hah.

Speaking of Texas, yesterday I was reminded of that drink I told Jessica to suggest to her manager when she worked at Lonestar. I can't remember much about it, except it had blueberry flavor and was called the Texas Ass-blaster.

It's gotta stop snowing. I'm losing my mind.

Merry Christmas!

I don't want to wax eloquent, but since it's Day 12 → Whatever tickles your fancy and it's Christmas, I am going to post a little poem thing I read at church yesterday that I thought was really beautiful.

Light looked down and saw darkness )

:) I hope everyone is having a great day, regardless of how you spent it!

Speaking of things I read in church, I picked up a random piece of paper and the first bit of it said, "Now Gabriel came to Zechariah and..." I then shook myself, reminded myself to separate fandom and real life and went about my business.

Oh and I got a magazine subscription for Christmas! I've asked for one for the last three years, lol. Also some other really nifty stuff including s1 of Deep Space Nine (omg, I love that show so much!)

And now I'm attempting to write the next chapter of this fic AGAIN because I've lost a bunch of it TWICE now from computer glitches. I'm going to start saving after every sentence, I swear.

*twirls away*

I'm in Lexington now! Man, we had to get up quite early to get down here. It's worth it though because Punch Brothers tonight!

And I'm starving.

So, the [ profile] deancastiel Renegade Angels fic authors were revealed the other day. I can't imagine anyone was that surprised to discover I'd written the Kentucky fic considering how often I go on about this state. In case you were wondering, Dean et al. end up in Paducah because that's where I was born. Sure I only lived there for a few years, but I started there and so that's where they ended up. It's like my Lawrence, only we moved because my dad joined the navy rather than because he was searching for the thing that pinned my mom to their bedroom ceiling.

I can't get the phrase "In dying, he defeated death" outta my head. It was a bit of morning comfort for me, but now it's just rumbling around in my head like loose change, heh. See, this is what happens to me. I don't get music stuck in my head. Well, not only music. I get words stuck in there on loops.

I realize that most of my posts are entitled something about 'random'. I think I should just accept that I'm a random person and be done with it.

But yes, I think I might take a nap now. I'm going to try and write some more Soul Piece before the concert. This chapter is annoying because it's all a bunch of puzzle pieces that don't fit anywhere. At least I think it will be. Who knows, by the time I sit down to finish it, it might turn out to be the epic tale of Dean and Castiel looking for Dean's lost shoe or something.
