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~

Wheee, I can has new layout! It's so cleeeean, and simpllllle. I've also set up another LJ to help my Dad with a whole lot of stuff related to getting his church online, and it is ALSO very pretty and has a million gorgeous icons that I can't fit over here. (mostly because I am nostalgic for my cute home-made c/p icons from a million years ago) I wish I could show you guys but it's under my real name and all related to family and churchy things (I had to not pick one icon I liked because it was to seeeexy. Sad day.) BUT, very cool. I will always love this journal the most, oh yeah!

I don't have time for a proper entry but a few things:

I started a new job this week! Eee! It was very scary and hardcore. It's for one of the top jewellery chain stores in NZ and it's pretty intense in terms of their standards and the amount of product knowledge you have to have. I know SO MUCH MORE about diamonds and gold right now than I EVER thought I would. Too bad for me I don't really LIKE diamonds, otherwise I'd be screaming with joy right now. Anyway, was epic. Downsides: location is an hour's travelling away from my house. Also, 25 hours a week. (To reference that, I WAS working 10. :/) Upsides: Cool people, less EEEE STRESSSSS than old job, and HOLY CRAP I'M GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH MONEY. (in comparison to what I was doing...) Oh, and they want me to work full time over the holidays. WIN. So yeah, it's going to be a lot of pressure next term balancing uni and job, but hopefully I'll manage.

Still working on 2 Spn fics. They're both okay? We'll see how they go. Both probably will be about 10,000 words, at around 3,000 now.

Okay, I gotta go finish reading Ernest Hemingway's Green Hills of Africa. It's for class. I don't recommend it to ANYONE. It's 200 pages of shooting rhinos and lions and leopards and oh GOSH it's horrible. STAY AWAY FROM THE BEAUTIFUL WONDERS OF NATURE! YOU CAN APPRECIATE THEM WITHOUT HAVING TO KILL THEM! FOR FUCK'S SAKE!

Layout change  
As you may be able to see (depending on how you are viewing this entry) I have a new layout! I am very excited about it. It only recently came to my attention that you don't have to be an awesome graphic designer to have pretty layouts, you just have to be able to follow instructions and find someone who IS an awesome graphic designer. Thus! Pretty!

This layout is by [ profile] fading_melody who is actally a queen of icons but since I'm still stuck with my boring 6 I can't justify using any of those right now.

I am going to edit this entry later once I get back from check out the new design for my tattoo. WHEE!
