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.

I'm having that awkward moment when you know you're overemotional and hormonal when a story you're writing at 3AM is leaving a lump in your throat, even though it's a crap story. Oh and work is at 10:30AM and I'm not tired. HOORAY except not really. What is your life, Sam?

Um, on another matter entirely: I'm not sure what's going on with Livejournal, but in case it decides to implode with the way it's been acting lately, I'm letting you guys know that I have a Tumblr and a Dreamwidth account. (I've also got an Insanejournal and Plurk accounts lying around someplace. Same screen name for all of them, btw.) Just in case you guys wanted a friendly reminder! I doubt anything bad's going to happen, but I figure the heads-up wouldn't hurt.

You ever have one of those nights where you can't sleep, it's five in the morning, you have the odd inspiration to write something except it's all stupid fanfiction? Then you discover that you're not comfortable writing fanfiction so instead you try to focus on original characters that aren't giving you the inspiration you need?

So you're just sitting on your bed in front of your notebook or computer and staring awkwardly at it and waiting for a dumb idea to come out of nowhere. It never comes. You should be going to sleep but, again, you're not tired and you're bored and you've lost control over your life.

This happens to me a lot lately. I hate these nights. Maybe I should read a book.

I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I got this result more than once with more than one fic.

Well! That's pretty cool.

... I signed up for another bingo table, because clearly something is wrong with me.

AU Bingo, plus some thoughts... )
samatethecookie: (sometimes it's better to be alone)
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.

Um. I actually signed up for [ profile] schmoop_bingo. I'm not sure if I'll complete this table, but it could serve as motivation to actually get some writing done.

My table, plus some thoughts... )

I'm debating on getting a table for that Hurt/Comfort challenge at [ profile] hc_bingo; thankfully you can request to leave off abuse and sexual trauma as prompts, because I'm um, really not comfortable working with any of those within the genre at all. That and I'm curious as to which prompts I'd get. (I probably won't sign up for them, though. Some of the prompts are just...a little too much.)

I won't even bother with [ profile] kink_bingo because I'm such a bashful person over smut. I can read it but writing it is a completely different field for me. That and most of the prompts are just too silly to even comprehend why anyone would find some of these things kinky.

Currently I'm watching The Shining. It's a little disturbing, but not really creepy, because the weird, psychotic music playing in every scene ruins the build-up. THANKS FOR RUINING A FAIRY TALE ABOUT PIGS FOR ME, THOUGH, YOU DAMN MOVIE.

... Since I read through a lot of my stories and winced at most of them:

After I wake up, I must spend the entire day beta-reading everything. Which means printing shit out. Which means taking a pen and striking out everything I don't want. Which means, after I'm done crying about how terrible of a writer I am, I should work up the courage and ask somebody to beta my stories for me.

Uh. That's about it.

I hate my writing, ugggghhh. I really need to start cracking down on this shit.
