samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (a beautiful blue sky is waiting for me)
Is it sad to say that I'm not very excited about Easter? I don't know why. It's not so much the holiday itself as it is the actual celebration. I can't really get myself hyped up for it anymore.

Of course, I'm only belly-aching. I should note a few positive things that have been going on lately.

1. Um, I'm writing again? It's crappy Dragon Age fanfiction involving my Warden and how she's dragged into all sorts of shenanigans, but at least they're story ideas I'm actually writing down.

2. I've been saving up for another laptop, too. I just...can't stand this Dell anymore. It doesn't work the way I want it to, even though I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong. The hard drive went into failure twice since I've owned it, beyond my own doing. I guess it's a good sign that it needs to get scrapped? Either way, I've been looking to buy a laptop that's good for gaming anyway. The only problem is that I have no idea what to even buy, other than I'm looking into HP computers.

3. I recently watched the finale for Madoka Magica, and holy crap, that left me teary-eyed. It's been awhile since I watched an anime that left me anticipating the end that badly. I'm glad it didn't fail to deliver what I expected.

4. Uh. That's it? I never know what to blog anymore. The biggest thing that happened to me today was that I got two t-shirts and two new journals from my parents as an Easter present. Both are Disney-themed. They're cute.

1. Well, is closing down. Which is fine with me, because I rarely ever read manga series anymore and when I do, it's because I've purchased the books from Borders. Still, it's a little sad to see it go since it was a great source for manga series that hadn't been licensed in America yet. Now I haven no idea how I'm going to read series like NANA if the artist ever picked it up again.

2. Thanks to [ profile] gemkazoni, I watched A Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do, but it really was a good film! (I may or may not have tear bended twice.) So um. If anyone hasn't seen it yet, you should really check it out!

3. Avatar: The Legend of Korra! I'm so excited; I'm glad that the critical mess that is the godawful The Last Airbender doesn't seem to be effecting the progress of this show. And the new Avatar is a lady! (My younger sister was surprisingly excited about that. The first thing she wanted to know is if the new Avatar was going to be a girl. SO PROUD OF HER.)

Although I heard that the fandom is already being incredibly immature about the fact that Aang's son is going to appear in the series, and the strong possibility that he's also the son of Katara? To be honest, I'm so over the canon vs. fanon battle that I really don't care about either ships anymore. Both of them aren't worth the effort, in my opinion; I care but I don't care that much. I just want to put that aside, move onto the new show and welcome it as it is.

4. I'll work on meme prompts either tonight or tomorrow. I'm just so ... blah lately. I haven't been able to crawl out of my insomniac habits yet. :\ Real life is incredibly dull, too.

So, I caved and actually asked for a bingo table at [ profile] hc_bingo. Because clearly I've lost my sanity. I'm not even huge on the genre as a whole, but I wanted to see which prompts I'd receive and if it'd work for me at all, because sometimes I don't mind H/C. (I asked for them to leave off sexual trauma and abuse, so if you're going to get a table and you're not comfortable with those prompts, please make sure to tell them that. Because a lot of them involve child abuse, for some reason.)

The Bingo Table, plus thoughts... )

I came back from a barbecue at my older sister's place. I ducked out early because my head was bothering me and I felt like I was getting sick again. One of the lowest highlights of my night involved Jason's thirty-year-old sister apologizing for making a crude gesture in front of me about dicks and assuming I was a really young teenager. Yes, believe it or not, I am twenty-two years old, damn it. D:

I attempted to watch this lame anime last night, and...I forgot the name of it. I discovered it when I was looking at this list of Anime Love Scenes on YouTube and I thought I'd give it a try. But I ended up hatewatching episodes three and four before I finally gathered my senses and dropped it like a bad habit. It was basically a girl reluctantly loving a boy who treats her like shit but the boy is set up as this secretly wonderful and soft-hearted guy on the inside SO IT'S OKAY, EVENTUALLY HE STOPS BEING A JERK and ugh. I hated it and it was only four episodes, so I'll get back with you with the name of it if anyone's curious.

Oh and in less than happier news, I lost my debit card at Target. They destroyed it by the time I reported it missing. But gee, it would've been nice if they notified me any of this OVER THE PHONE when I called and asked if I left it there. 8| So. I guess I'm going to have to report it missing and asked for another one.

And because I forgot to mention it, Scruffy's improving very quickly. He's walking normally, his appetite is slowly coming back, and he's interacting with us again instead of sitting around and staring off into space. I think what helped was that my parents stopped giving him his painkillers, which were making him too loopy to do anything. His head is still tilting, but he's much better off than he was when we first brought him home.

I joined MyAnime List.

Damn, I've barely watched any anime/read a lot of manga. I'm sure there's more that I can't remember right now. :/

Edit: Iowa Court Says Gay Marriage Ban Is Unconstitutional.

The news today is really sad, but this made me smile. It probably made my entire day.
