I'm alive. Busy, and sick, and just got my internet working again, but I am alive. And I will be around a lot more in roughly a week and a half. If I can just not die until then, I will be fine.

I am on break from school this week, and yet I am still managing to be busy as hell. Figures, I guess. I have plans and work every day this week, two Thanksgivings to go to, a friend coming in town Thursday afternoon and leaving Sunday night, plus two books to read, a research essay to write, and a short story to completely overhaul for my classes. That's with completely ignoring turning in final drafts of my personal statement and CV, asking teachers for recommendations, and writing about my own writing for another class.
In short, I will not have time to watch my SV and Ugly Betty eps until winter break in mid-December. I am crying inside a little bit. But in all honesty, this semester has gone by really fast for me, and if I can pull off a 3.5 or better I will be satisfied. I want my Latin honors at graduation, dammit. Also, my friends are pretty much awesome and I am still really liking my boyfriend. We've only been together for like 5 weeks, so I don't really know how to gauge the appropriateness of how I am feeling. I don't even want to think about it, really. It's scary.
But now I must be off to work. I hope you all have a good holiday this week! (And read and write lots of hot fic!)

Ok, so I have to get this off my chest. ( Cut for personal (probably *too* personal) business.Collapse )
On the fandom front, I haven't watched any TV since the fall season started and the baseball season ended. For the Cardinals. Thus I have been trying to avoid getting spoiled. I have all the SV and Ugly Betty eps DVR-ed at my dad's house, I just have been stuck at school because my car needs a new transmission and I can't trust it on highways, so I can't go home to watch them. Or do laundry, or see my family. I miss SV, though, and I miss my baby doggy. I also miss being able to drive to work in my own car, rather than borrowing a friend's. Stupid transmissions, being all expensive. And stupid me, being all broke and stuff.

I've been crazy busy this last week but hopefully that is going to go away soon. I love school and all but I also enjoy being able to eat and sleep. I think I am actually on the verge of getting sick, so that kind of blows. I took a three hour nap today, and after I type up some more stuff I will probably try to get to sleep by midnight or one.
So the Cardinals sucked it up this year, but hey, we can't be World Champions every season. We'll get all of our injuries and problems out this season so we can come back and win it again in '08. Plus, someone had to throw the Cubs a bone so their fans wouldn't kill themselves. Even if they probably should.
I have some really awesome friends, and aside from the not sleeping, my life kicks ass right now. If you're reading this I count you as my friend and I want to say thank you for helping me and making me happy and letting me relax. It makes a big difference and I don't think I tell people how much I appreciate them.
Homecoming is fast approaching and I'm pretty excited about it. I am going to get drunk and dance. It's not going to be pretty, except for that I will be looking hot. I also met this new guy- I don't know him well yet, though, so I don't have a ton to say. We'll see. I just hope he's not as mind numbingly stupid as the last one. He's a pledge in my college community service fraternity, which means he is not averse to doing volunteer work, and we both like the same bands. He's really nice and cute and he seems like a romantic kind of guy- but like I said, I don't know him well yet. I think I'm going to try to ask him to go to Homecoming with me (and my friends) and see what happens. I like having crushes, it makes life more exciting.
I haven't had time to watch my DVR-ed episodes of Smallville or Psych yet, which is causing major withdrawal. I am trying to avoid being spoiled, but it doesn't seem like many people liked Bizarro. I reserve judgement.

03:13 am - scribblinlenore made me do it...
If you haven't seen scribblinlenore's entry on Major League Baseball slash of the JeteRod variety, go check it out. It's both hilarious and vaguely sexy. She has completely sold me on MLB slash, but my OTP is Albert Pujols/Yadier Molina. Seeing as how at least half of my pairing is vigorously Catholic and married with kids, I feel slightly ashamed to be thinking of RPSing him. Obviously, not that ashamed, because here is picture evidence!
( Five reasons why Pujols/Molina is my shiny new MLB OTP:Collapse )

So, about that crush I needed to quit. All I needed to do was spend a weekend with the dude. Homeboy is seriously skanky and gross. He spent about an hour heavily hitting on a married woman (who was smoking hot, but also a bit of a prima donna as well as my roommate at the leadership retreat). He's all kinds of fucked up. While he is pretty to look at, the guy is dumb as a box of rocks and kind of cruel. Specifically to his girlfriend.
My ex boyfriend is joining my school organization on Thursday. Yes, the one who told me I was fat. He actually was on the leadership retreat, too, so we spent some time together and it wasn't as awkward as I expected. It should be fine but he'll probably annoy me. All the little goofy things he did that, when we were dating, I used to think were cute, now just make me wonder why I went out with him. He is also still nice to look at, but too annoying and too much of an asshole for me.
It actually just sucks. I don't need anyone, much less a guy, but it's nice to have that little feeling of excitement and attraction to someone I see on a regular basis. It's nice to have the possibility of something happening with a guy. And I don't right now. That's probably for the best anyway, as I am behind in all my classes and need to be applying to grad schools. My schedule is pretty hellish, especially this week.
I'm excited for Smallville to start again. I'm looking forward to the rush of new, hot fic. I don't mind re-reading my favorites, but variety is a good thing. Until then, I leave you all to go finish reading Julius Caesar.

I am completely wiped. I still need to pack for the leadership retreat that I am going on tomorrow, as well as stop by a grocery store.
I am really trying to quit this crush thing. It's almost entirely physical and very shallow. I try to remind myself that I don't even like this guy's personality very much, yet I am still very attracted to him. It kills me. He is going on the leadership retreat, too, and there will probably be a lot of drinking going on. I will not be indulging much for fear that I will get plastered and hit on him. Stupid men. Wish me luck, because I am probably going to need it.
On a completely unrelated note, it strikes me at odd times that I am very lucky. I have had a lot of opportunity in my life and I have a supportive immediate family that loves me very much and would do anything they could to help me. I can't imagine what my life would be like without them.
And now I am off to pack and try to get some sleep.

I got tagged! Which is ok, because I do like talking about myself. Everyone's a narcissist these days, but only because they all want to be like me. :P
1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag whoever wants to do it.
1. After asking for a hot naked man wearing nothing but a bow for my birthday, I did receive one. He is a stuffed toy naked man wearing nothing but a bow, but it still counts. He's even my type.
2. I like dogs better than cats. In fact, I don't even really like cats. I don't *dislike* them, but I don't like them, either. I feel kind of bad about not liking them.
3. I am trying to stop hating on women just because they are women. I am better at it some days than others.
4. I have recently discovered that I really love Shakespeare's writing. Reading his plays are the only homework assignments I enjoy (and complete)these days.
5. Despite trying to resist it, I still have a crush on another girl's boyfriend. And he's not even worth it! Dammit.
*ETA*- Just posted this with only five facts. Lord, I need some sleep. Here are two more:
6. I am left handed. Yes, I know this makes me odd. No, I don't care.
7. The Budweiser "Real Men of Genius" radio commercials crack my shit up. I will stop on a radio station just to hear the commercial.
I am definitely *not* going to say that I tag whoever wants to do this meme. Notice that I am NOT saying that.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! They have definitely been high points of a day that has been up and down.
On a side note, I have decided that I definitely need to abandon my previously mentioned crush, for numerous reasons. Shit just isn't right. I have reverted back to not really wanting anything to do with guys. Don't worry, it will probably only last until tomorrow.
And now I am off to do homework.
