USA Elections!  
I know, I know, you're all probably sick of it, but I don't care!

I'm planted in front of the T.V. watching the NZ coverage of the US election. Boring and super-exciting at the same time. At this point it's a guesstimate from CNN of Obama 81 to McCain 34. ABC is reporting that Obama has Pennsylvania. I've got my laptop out because I'm sure there are going to be long bouts of nothing happening and in theory I'm supposed to be using some of my holidays this week to write!

Oh, and I got all my essays in. Have to wait a few weeks for marks, but I'm about 90% sure I've passed both classes. Got my summer papers confirmed this morning. I'm trying to convince my work to give me minimal extra hours over the summer so I can make a serious hit at my WIPs. I also have some Spn/CWRPS fics I'm thinking about having a go at. Next year the original fics have got to become my top priority, so this summer I really desperately want to get Dry My Tears and Burn to Shine back into shape before I turn my attention elsewhere. Anyway, we'll see what happens.

Will check in later as the polls keep coming in! Woot woot! (If anyone's at all in question of where my loyalties lie, *snort* GO OBAMA, GO!)

Edit: 306 votes! WOOT!

I need some happy-related icons...  
This entry has no real purpose, I have nothing in particular to say, except it's been a while since I've updated, and I've learnt through experience that the less you update, the less you have to say, because trying to sum-up the last say, two months or whatever of your life is just too fucking hard. Which is why this journal annoys me when I'm trying to find out the dates of things and shit by looking back on it, because most of the major events are skipped over because there's just too much to say. (And yes, you did hear right, I have such a bad memory that I have to use my livejournal to recall when/how things in my life occurred)

So, Life, luck, and new obsessions: )

Lastly, just wanted to let people know, the draft of the next chapter of Dry My Tears is done. In all it's 34 hand-written pages of PAIN. At this point I'm still undecided about cutting it in half, so I'm just continuing to try and type it all up, then it will need editing, BUT, it's close. (really trying to get it done before the one-year mark for that one, too! -_-;;)Also started work on BTS_09 the other day, so despite CRAZY levels of busy, things are being processed. Where possible. }:/

Love love!

I have a JOB! All hail and glory!  
*dances*

Oh yeah, that's right, job is me. Me is job. Job is kickass rocksaw omg garden house* of COOOL!

Whooooooo!

It's at a jewellery kiosk where I am not permitted to sit. (Even on the rubbish bin! The RULES SAY SO!!!) And I'm workin from 12-4:30 on Friday, and 2:30-4:30 on Monday. Awesomeness ahead. I am sooooooo thrilled and now I'm really really super-duper looking forward to next semester! Onward and upward! Sure, more hours might have been better money-wise, but I have such a mega workload next semester (compared to what I'm used to) that it'll probably be perfect.

So yeah, I totally get all weekend and every evening free, plus it's just stylish-casual wear so I can go straight from uni and, all in all, I'm sweet-fucking-as. *dances more* I'm really looking forward to a semester of normality and schedule-sameness. It will hopefully encourage me to have good writing-headspace.

Anywayzz, I gtg, I need to cook myself an egg and then get ready for bed. Sleep is me because tomorrow work is me. Love love everyone and thanks to all who cheered me on in the land of no-work. hugs for all!

*garden house lives in my brain. Garden house is a name of a restaurant that is regularly referred to in my Japanese text book. Everything is 'ガーデンハウスは どですか。' (How about, (we go to) Garden House?) Apparently, although ジム ハリスさん (Jim Harris) and 山本 みち子さん (Yamamoto Michiko) are quite happy to go and eat there, カレン ロペス (Karen Lopez) thinks that it is too うるさい (noisy). Isn't that just sooooooo fucking interesting, that you want to read about it about 50 million times??????? @_@ (sorry, learning a language can be very... interesting, sometimes...)

Momentous occasion of ending of Things  
Just a quick fly-by entry because I am off on a plane in the morning (I feel like I've become such a jet-setter in the last few years! To think I'd never been on a proper plane in my life only two years ago! Now the idea of it just makes me feel jaded. :/)

I momentous thing has happened to me tonight, and I need to write it down for posterity. Tonight, after starting watching the series somewhere around ten years ago, I have finally watched the last episode of Sailor Moon.

...I can't even begin to describe my feelings right now.

To be honest I thought the ending was a bit lame and I wish they'd ended it at the end of season three. I liked the character development they did in this season, but the fact that _yet again_ Sailor Moon has to wait till EVERYONE IS DEAD before she actually does anything was a bit manufactured. All the character development in the season was pointing toward the scouts/senshi really starting to get used to their roles and accept that part of their lives, then suddenly Sailor Moon is kicking _less_ ass than she has in _every_other_battle_? Nuh. Would have worked if they'd put more work into the script and just had her say a few things like, "This fighting is endless, I refuse to keep having to hurt people," or, "Sometimes fighting is not the answer to a problem," or ANYTHING that would have explained her random extreme-pacifist opinion other than, 'Now I am naked for _no good reason_ and I will not try and stop you like every other bad-guy-boss in the series, I will fly towards you (naked) and commune with your inner love-love (naked) nature. (WHILE BEING NAKED FOR NO GOOD REASON!)'

And like, how many times did the inner-senshi DIE in that series???? Like, at least three times, right? (including the movies)

Anyway, it was good, I'm glad I've finally seen it, but, as usual, I could have done it so much better. Why don't these companies get the message and just hire me as the writer for like, every single anime already??? Sheesh!

Right well, to bed with me. I am in the North Island for a week now, (visitin the fam. YAYAYAY! Gonna see my cat. YAYAYAY!) So I'll be even _more_ non-hiatusy than I was before, (which, lets be honest, may seem to appear pretty similar to a hiatus, but it's not! I swear! I do I do!) but I'm hooooooping to get some writing done while I'm away. Got the next two scenes for BTS_08 all planned out so it may just happen. We'll see. Everyone be-well and I promise I will get back to my old levels of at least sporadic replies to things ^_^;; Page out!
