I can has new layout  
I'm really super tired right now, but I has new layout, yay!

Right now the alignment is bung, but I can't be bothered trying to fix it before I get home.

Today I've been hit really hard with a massive wave of depression. Hopefully it will be gone gone gone tomorrow.

I have an exam in two days that my spaced-out mind hasn't really allowed me to prepare for properly, but I'm workin on that.

Note to fandom at large: She's apologised, move on. If someone has the grace to make a mistake and then acknowledge it and apologise, stop attacking them coz this isn't 'the man' or something, this is one of us. Learning from your mistakes is the most important part of growing, and fandom should foster that, not turn it to poison. It's like that discussion ages ago where a lot of people were like, 'you know what? I'm racist at times. I don't mean to be, and I don't like to be, but I am.' I always admired the people who could admit that. This girl obviously has a massive blind spot to the ways in which her story can be hurtful. That's sad, but now that she's seen the problem, can't we be less with the jabbing and the painful words? She's kinda stupid for not seeing what is obvious to a lot of people, but not everyone had the benefit of the education and social awareness that many in this fandom have. No one's perfect, and the fact that she's making a sincere effort to mitigate the damage, in my opinion, means a lot.

In other news, I got a haircut! I think I was hoping it would knock me out of my funk, but I'm not totally sold on it and I am more funk'd than before. Sigh.

I'm gonna go off and be depressed somewhere else so I don't share the emo around!

For the record, until I can be arsed changing my profile page details, layout by [ profile] scholarslayouts.

Love love~

Holy crap, this is what happens when I go away for a while  
A never-ending explosion entry! Tirrah!

I feel like I’ve been utterly submersed by life for the last couple of weeks. Like, barely even up for air.

There is FAR too much to say, but, a few things:

1. The smile that lights up Jensen’s face when he mentions Danneel and the half of the audience who were really embarrassed by the whole Danneel-hating is like ‘AHH! HE MENTIONED DANNEEL SCREAM ABOUT HOW MUCH WE LOVE HER!’ And he’s all... ‘wow, some fans that respect my girlfriend, YES! YES SHE IS AWESOME!’ Is probably the most heart-breaking and awesome thing to emerge from the Asylum con.

2. Star Trek – let me fall completely in love with you and watch you FOUR TIMES in the last month. (To be fair though, only twice involved the cinema, but I feel justified in my shitty cam copy because I SPENT MONEY ON THE CINEMA! TWICE!) Karl Urban, let me be THRILLED that someone as awesome as you is a Kiwi. (As an aside, I saw someone ranting recently about how southern he is (as opposed to somewhere else in America, I think was the context) and I was like, *snigger*, b/c I think his accent is still really kiwi in the movie.) I HOPE THIS PARAGRAPH’S PARENTHESES ARE ALL IN ORDER!

3. Got all my essays and scripts in! I feel completely stoked by my anime pilot! I’m crossing everything capable of crossage that I’m going to get A-variations on my final assignment’s marks. One take-home test due on Monday (three 1000 word essays) and then this semester is OVER and I have a whole two days to go on a tidying binge before [info] - personalmimei arrives on the 18th! Eee! Prepare for extensive silliness!

4. I’m not reading ANY of the big bangs this week. NO! If you hear me doing it, feel free to JAB ME WITH STICKS! I need to slam this final test.

5. I now have approximately 3,000,572.84 plot-bunnies at the moment. @_@ A teeeeny bit more time, but not much! We’ll see if something happens about any of that.

6. I went to see the post-grad Anthropology academic advisor on Friday to talk about Honours and Masters. I felt extremely excited and completely wrung out by the end of it. It left me feeling shaky all weekend, actually. (see more ranting below)

7. MY BROTHER GOT ENGAGED YESTERDAY! (It’s still only-family knows, but I somehow doubt anyone will be alarmed that I told my flist.... XD) I’M REALLY EXCITED! LIKE, SO MASSIVELY EXCITED! Everyone knew it was coming eventually but... WEDDING! WE GET TO HAVE A WEDDING! *jumps up and down and tries not to plan things on behalf of the bride without asking.* >_>;)

And lots more ranting about post-grad and all the pros and cons that need to be considered... )

Anyway, if anyone want to weigh in on all of that. (tell me what I should doooooo!) you’re more than welcome, I need some input from my friends and compadres about this life-decision!

Meanwhile, more study!
