A Dream

Before Squee, I had this semi-incoherent dream that I thought was very interesting. I wrote it out (and fixed it up so it made more sense) and posted it to tumblr. I forgot to post it here.

Birthday!

Happy birthday [personal profile] wings128! I hope your day was full of good things, like lots of slash for your ship(s) of choice and presents :)
popkin16: ("john")
I wrote a thing! It's a WIP, which I understand might not be everyone's thing, but check it out if you like.

My dad's side of the family is visiting from out of state. They usually only come up about once a year - if that - so all week, on my days off, I've been staying out until 11pm to visit with family. The lack of downtime and naps has me feeling tired constantly, so I haven't been doing much fandom stuff lately other than reading. I haven't written anything, or beta'd anything, because I just cannot brain when I get home lol. But everyone is leaving Saturday/Sunday, so after that things will be settling into their normal routine. I took yesterday - Thursday - off because my one uncle was only going to be here Thursday and Friday, and I work both those days. It's going to make money ridiculously tight at the end of the month, but it was worth it. I haven't seen him in three years.

Other than reading, I've been listening to podcasts. I just finished Limetown and LOVED it. Fascinating and at times creepy, it pulled me in until all I could think about was listening to the next episode. I have a huge list of podcasts I want to listen to, some of them quite long, so I have plenty to choose from. I think if I ever do get caught up on my podcasts, I'm going to listen to more podfics. My life could always use more John & Rodney~

My birthday is coming up - the 23rd. I'm going to be 28. It's super weird to think that I'm approaching 30 - I still feel like I'm 23, and I have to actually do the math in my head before I'm like, "Oh yeah." Where the hell is this year going?
Birthday wishes to [personal profile] em_kellesvig! I hope your birthday was a really good one.
Happy birthday [personal profile] esteefee ! I hope your day was absolutely wonderful, full of happiness. You deserve tons of good things :)

[personal profile] elayna, I hope your birthday was absolutely amazing and full of the best experiences :)

New Ship

Don't worry, I still really ship McShep :D A friend of mine was going to start a rewatch of The Flash and invited me to join. I'm easily persuaded when it comes to ships - if you get to me first and talk your ship up, I will totally start to ship it too (and then nothing can make me stop).

I've been feeling so lackluster about all my fic ideas lately. I'm really not feeling the fic I started for the harlequin challenge, so I've been trying to come up with an idea that I do like, and nothing is happening. I've never been idea blocked before! It's incredibly frustrating.

Maybe I'm putting too much pressure on myself lol.
As I mentioned in my last post, tumblr loves to speculate on how terrifying and weird humans would be to aliens. We come from a deathworld, where you can die in a countless number of different ways; we're like space orcs, hard to kill and monstrous; we dye our hair and tattoo ourselves and purposely poison ourselves for fun (alcohol); etc.

I love that kind of thing - taking normal human behavior and looking at it through the lenses of a species that finds it new.

Along that line, I just discovered that The Kevin Jenkins Experience - and it's related Humans Don't Make Good Pets - is actually part of a REALLY HUGE universe, called The Jenkinsverse.

As described on the series page:

I'll probably end up compiling it into a word document so I can read it offline, too. Even though that's going to be A LOT of work.

I had an interview today! There was a sign by the time machine at work that a part-time position had open up in vision center.

So angry

popkin16: (oh. bitchcakes)
So we've found a place. We were told that the people living there agreed to be out by February 1st...which came and went with no call from the manager. Okay. We call and the manager says she's just waiting on the title, which really shouldn't take that long. We waited a week and a half with no word, so we called her to get an update. She didn't pick up. We called, left messages, etc. for about a week and when we finally got a hold of her, we were told again that she's just waiting on the title. So we call the people who lived in the place before us and they agree to meet us to hand over the title (and then never show up, which they've done twice). We've agreed to meet the people to exchange the title tomorrow (again), but I guess the manager caught wind, because she called and said, "Since you're going behind my back, it's going to be another $350 to move in." 

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

I'm so angry. We're poor, you dumbass, and the rest of the money we have was going to toward repairs. What the fuck is your actual problem? Are you 12? Oh you went behind my back - who cares, as long as we have the title and pay you your fucking money? What is with the increase in price? AND such a huge increase, too. I bet you she's going to pocket that damn money. We have so few options too, it's not like we can just go somewhere else.

Updates!

I've had this fic idea stuck in my head that I like quite a bit. It's FAR outside my comfort zone, both in terms of plot and content. I've got about 3k down and I'm just...not happy with any of it. To a degree that isn't normal for me (since I never like my writing). I think one of my problems is that I got the idea and just immediately started writing about it, but I should maybe sit down, work out some of the worldbuilding, maybe redo some of the plot. I'd really hate for my struggle to kill whatever motivation and fondness I have for the idea.

I was so so excited to find a package from [personal profile] squidgiepdx - a signed copy of Migrations! I took a selfie with the book, I just have to get off my lazy bum to post it :D

My brother agreed to continue paying the bills, but we decided that - because he has a baby on the way - we should probably start looking into finding a cheaper place to live so he'll have money to, you know, buy diapers and other necessities. We should be picking up the title to our new place tomorrow, have some minor repairs to deal with, and then...moving. Again. We've tentatively figured out that I can afford cable/internet, but we'll see how reality shapes up. I'll keep everyone apprised :)
