Best meme ever.

My life has been all kinds of good lately. ALL KINDS OF GOOD. Old friends, boys, other families and bonfires. And upcoming: baseball, more old friends, more boys, parties, meteor shower and returning to school. MADE OF WIN.

Today has been so wonderful. Huge crowd for softball and hanging out afterward. I love my family and my other families and my LIFE right now. I am sunkissed but not sunburned. Best Friend made me this awesome bracelet, which matches hers, since I liked hers so much. :D

Also, this, which is totally awesome:

I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!

Thank goodness! It's working with the school in my town which is great because it means better pay, not having to deal with tourists, and set, daytime hours. Otherwise I would be waitressing or serving ice cream or something and this is WAY BETTER. Plus, I don't start til June 11, so I've got some time to keep messing around and not accomplishing things.

Love love me do!

I spent most of the day sleeping in MY OWN BED. I took my dog for a walk with my mom. My parents and I went out to breakfast/lunch. My cat cuddled with me all last night. I have THE LAKE right outside my window. Life is goooooooood.

Plus, baseball, which was amazing and MY DAD CAUGHT A FOUL BALL. Well, when I say caught, I mean it was rocketed toward our seats, I ducked, some people behind us tried to catch it, it ricocheted a couple times, and landed in the my brother's seat while he was buying us hot dogs. And my dad picked it up. :D So now I have a foul ball sitting on my dresser. Normally, I would give it to a little kid, but I was too excited. Plus, I texted the IOM about it and he didn't believe me. So I had to keep it to show it to him. :P

thoughts as I watched Monday's Castle )

Moral of the story: Trucco's freakin' gorgeous but Demming makes Castle, and thus me, sad. Though he makes up for some of it by being so darn pretty.

really good questions from liveonthesun )

Tomorrow will be baseball on TV (it was a rainout tonight so they're doing a day/night double header! :D), with Rick Porcello ♥ pitching. Excellent. Hopefully I will see my other sister, who should get a better nickname than other sister. In the evening, the 'rents and I are going out to dinner at a place where there'll be something like a 12-piece band playing--and various other people might come. I reallllly hope so! I've missed my other families.

Oh, also, Hill and I have a weekly word goal. We're going to write and send things to each other every Sunday, at least 1000 words. It will force us to keep writing and also to share and get feedback, which is something I often fail at doing. I'm going to try to not cheat and therefore not write fanfiction, but I hear there's another [livejournal.com profile] bsg_pornbattle this summer, and if I'm writing anywhere near the eight pieces I wrote for the last one, I won't necessarily have time to keep up with original fiction. But, anyway, I'm excited for a summer of writing.

Plus, I did a few crunches and push-ups today. I hope to increase the number as I go, but just doing any is a big first step for me. So, root me on. :)

In 24 hours I'm gonna be with my dad and my brother, sitting in Comerica park! It's kind of a crazy feeling.

I've been excited to go home forever, and of course I still am, but I'm terrible at goodbyes. I always cry and hold The Boyfriend and decide I don't want to leave, not ever. Probably within three weeks of being home I'll want to come back to Portland, but I know I don't want to stay here for the summer. I wish I could transplant my favorite people to my favorite place. It's home. And this summer might be my last summer that I can spend there, so. Obviously I want to go. It's just tough leaving people behind.

And this post is not at all me procrastinating from packing. No, not at all.

questions from coffeesuperhero )
olaf47: (smile)

It was quite anti-climatic, as I finished with a take home test. Usually it's something more like finishing a test, turning it in, and walking out of one of the academic buildings for the last time. Instead, it was, "Well. Um. I guess I'll email this to him. I'm done." But still very exciting.

BASEBALL SOON. We have ridiculously good tickets. I don't know exactly where, but in the "on-deck circle" section, which stretches from dugout to dugout, including behind home plate. *dies*

Mom seems nervous that I am sad that I'm coming home for the summer--since Texas, Roommate Boy (who will be Roommate Boy again for real!), and The Boyfriend are staying out here, together. But Portland doesn't have the Lake, or a beach, or les filles, or my family or Other Families, or Tigers baseball, or the IOM, or that feeling of home. Nowhere but Michigan will ever be home to me, especially in the summer. And this summer, the aunt and uncle aren't living with us, so I'll have my room again and much more peace and quiet. I will bike everywhere and write everything and I can't wait.

Finishing Pride & Prejudice this weekend. Hopefully going to either Sonic or Arby's. Or maybe both?

Hope those in the ice are safe and happy!

7 facts/quirks/things about me )
olaf47: (thirteen)
It seems The Boyfriend has gotten me sick. Some stupid stomach flu (or maybe I got [livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero's over the Internet). Damn Twitter, spreading infections everywhere! Anyway, my belly hurts and I can't decide if I should eat something or just laze around.

I am in a flurry of Academy!Kara writing, though I will try to break out of it to get the other requests from this entry. There are still sooo many open request spots, so if you want me to do something, lemme know. Also, at any time you can always comment here and I'll see what I can do.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] meryl_edan and [livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero. For one of the questions, a response included "I have a special destiny." How could I *not* pick it?

olaf47: (kara laughing)
Classes start tomorrow. I'm not sure I remember how to do school if it's not in Africa. I haven't been in a real classroom since April.

Here is the bidding thread on me for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti . You can get a fic or editing services for cheap and help Haiti at the same time.

Watched 24 last night and will probably continue watching it because Katee Sackhoff is in it now. I like her with shorter hair than in the show, but she's still Katee Sackhoff. ♥ Plus she has a personal storyline instead of just "raaaah! we blow things up!"

Burn Notice is back tonight! Plus a House episode. ETA: Both of these things are wrong. BN is Thursday, and House isn't on tonight because there is more 24. Nonetheless: I'm going to be honest, I missed watching TV every week.

'Cause I commented on [livejournal.com profile] leiascully 's meme:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing (or you can have an icon). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Holiday Love Meme, Secret Santa Style

I'm in FRANCE, you guys! FRANCE!

And I'm with someone who's known me longer than 3 months! I am undeniably happy, and not that cold anymore now that I get to steal Emily's clothes.

I've caught up with 30 Rock already. My love for Tina Fey and Jack Donaghy is still immense. My sister says the Dexter finale was amazing and everyone has been telling me I need to watch Glee. Do you agree, flist?

In Africa I wrote a lot of original fiction, some good, some bad, none finished. I wrote very little fanfic, but eased my way back into it because I missed writing characters whose whole stories I knew. I was afraid I had lost my ability to write smut, and tried forcing myself into it. It was not working and not working and then voila, Katee Sackhoff/Tricia Helfer femslash, FTW. So that'll be up after I get home. And some substance!fluff Kara/Lee.

I just wanted to pop in and say hi because I miss you people a lot. I feel like over winter break I'm going to be totally spamming you with love. :)

The "You Should Write..." Meme!
my thread here

Also, OMFG ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT! My community theatre (which is, in general, epic. They have never disappointed me--including a kickass Jesus Christ Superstar) put on Escanaba in Da Moonlight every night this week. Just saw it with my parents and knew everyone in it :). It was amazing. Honestly, it probably doesn't transfer to people outside the Great Lakes region, but it was brilliant. I hear the movie's no good though, which is sad.

Off to read the SPACE EPIC. (Speaking of, one of the characters in the play got abducted by aliens and one of his lines is "I spent a whole weekend in space" and I WANT TO SPEND A WHOLE WEEKEND IN SPACE!)

Tagging [livejournal.com profile] trolliepop, [livejournal.com profile] foxylovesme, [livejournal.com profile] astropixie....whatever. That's three, not eight, but it's enough.
olaf47: (pam)
I don't care what they say, I'm tagging whoever wants to do this )

I am being left out of things in RL lately, flist. No fun. I need spring break. Too much work.

On the plus side, both The Office and 30 Rock were wonderful. I watched them on a computer in the library today and probably disrupted people working because I kept laughing.
olaf47: (square)
My darling friends, old and new, you should fill this out for me because you are darlings and I want to know you better. Especially the new ones though, because I don't actually know you guys at all.

Oh, also tell me your name )

I forgot all about questions from [livejournal.com profile] coffesuperhero! So here they are. And I think if you comment I'm supposed to give you questions too. If you want. Whatever. If you want them, tell me, and I'll come up with some.

Questions )

So there we go! Sorry it took so long!

Fangirls: Go comment on my last entry. I want to make you happy.

Commanding only fangirls to do that makes me realize I have all of one male LJ friend. At least only one who regularly updates. This is sad. He is also not a fanboy. I want to be friends with fanboys.

I am going home in one week. In fact, if the train is on time, I will be arriving in *exactly* one week from right now at the train station where the Sister and I will be picked up by the Mom and the Dad.

I'm trying to convince the Roommate Boy to come visit me for New Years. He is resisting. The Boyfriend is already not visiting. I believe he is getting drunk somewhere in Maine with a bunch of people. I want to spend it with my Inappropriate Older Man, but he has a girlfriend. And is also too old and too inappropriate for me to invite to a night of drinking that is supposed to end with a kiss at midnight.

I do not think I ever want to call anyone by their name ever again. Everyone will hencetoforth be referred to by nicknames. It will probably take a while to train them to respond to things like Roommate Boy, but I will work on it.

And lastly, a meme from [livejournal.com profile] leiascully
Leave me a comment and I will reply with why I like you. If I don't know you, I'll either make something up or tell you why I like your LiveJournal. You must pay for the privilege by posting a message like this one on your LiveJournal.

I love House. They seem to have amped up the House/Cuddy-ness. Me gusta. And thirteen = still hot.
I didn't get to watch Private Practice...though it may be online already, I'll have to check.
It's already Thursday and I haven't done any homework. But I only have one class tomorrow.
