My eyes feel like they've been crying, but I totally haven't. I've been frustrated but not really sad or anything so...wtf? Maybe I've been seeing the Silence all night? And then just forgetting.

LOL I should either be asleep or doing homework. Instead I'm putzing around on the internet and watching gay weddings. COME ON LESBIANS, THE GUYS ARE OUTDOING YOU ON THE FABULOUS WEDDINGS! YOU CAN BE PRETTY TOO!

I. Am so. Tired. (Gawd why am I still up?)

Today/Yesterday was all kinds of awesome. Not going to do a detailed thing yet, brain is all kinds of muddled, but yeah. Mostly wanted to say I'm not dead, just haven't been on LJ in a while because every time I tried to log on for like 5 days there would be something wrong with the site.

Kind of marks the end of my vacation already. Got two or three essays to write and another fuck ton of math homework to do. *sigh*

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

I've been doing really well with keeping up with all my homework and tests so far. I've got a A in both my English classes, an A (I think) in PoliSci (though I accidentally missed a test that was scheduled for a Saturday, so I don't know how that will affect my overall grade yet) and a B in math.


I nearly danced out of class. It would have been an A except for the text I failed the week before. I have never had a B in a math class. NEVER. I'm really hoping I can maintain it.

Yet I'm feeling the mid-semester flounders coming on. I'm really having a hard time focusing all this week. Just two more weeks until Spring Break, so I'm trying to muster all my energies to pay attention, do my homework, do all my readings, do all my papers, and still maintain an active & interesting social/creative life. I know, most people would say "well, social/creative life should be second to school", but while I agree it's important to meet your responsibilities, I really can't subscribe to the idea that enjoying your life is low on priorities. We only live so long, you know? I know it's a bit early for me to be saying this, I mean I'm only 23, but then again I'm ALREADY 23. Two more years and I'll have lived a quarter of my potential life span, and that's if I am blessed enough to live to the max, you know? So I simply can't ignore the need to enjoy life, even when it costs me in schooling sometimes.

That is to say I'm going to a party on Friday, despite having three papers due, full chapter of homework for math, and two math tests next week (a regular weekly test and the in-class midterm).

Also, in case I never told you on here my WEBCOMIC EARTHBOUND is up and running! Please keep an eye out for updates on Fridays.

Please follow the image to my help_japan auction post.

I'm offering colored character busts, the minimum bid is $10.

(Copypasta from dA)

Please, I know everyone is saying this right now, but if you haven't donated to help Japan in the wake of this recent disaster, please considering doing so now. There are plenty of reputable places where your money will be put to good use. There are plenty of places to choose from listed here:

DONATE JAPAN: Link (Please note, that that is a good LIST of places to donate, but the links all seem to go somewhere else, so google the place you choose and then donate directly from their site)

Also, please remember that, while this is an extreme tragedy and they need our full support right now, there are other countries that need your help right now as well. So please keep a hopeful thought for-- and possibly donate to-- help out the people of Australia and New Zealand as they, too, have recently suffered from ecological disasters. And please don't let the pressure up on Libya, where atrocities are being committed by the government against it's people as we speak.

So I haven't really given much of an account of Gallifrey 22 yet, and I'm n ot quite sure I ever will. A lot of great things happened, and I had an absolutely fantastic time (though for some reason it didn't feel as awesome as last year, but maybe that's because last year I love my Gally-cherry, as it were?). I really had a wonderful time hanging out and talking with new fans and a couple familiar faces from last year. I came away feeling resolved to do cosplay next year. I really feel like I missed out on the kind of community that cosplay opens up to attendees at the con. I mean, I'm not very outgoing initially, so I have a hard time talking to people, but I feel like cosplay kind of gives people a base to jump off with and form all those great connections with other fans. Also, the Doctor Who cosplay people are THE FUCKING NICEST PEOPLE EVER. I'm so used to there being kind of petty feuds and a general with-holding of information in a sort of territorial fashion in other fandoms that I am continually AMAZED at how open, friendly, and informative DW cosplayers are, to everybody! I let a lack of funds last year and the year before keep me from doing anything, but I'm going to try and make space in my budget for at least one costume for next year, even if it's not a very impressive one.

(Though FFS, I'm having issues with my sewing machine again. The Elna that Clayton's mom gave me was working beautifully until all of a sudden the bobbin started eating my top thread and spitting out a tangled mess, and I have no idea how to make it stop. But I digress.)

So, like I said, I'm not going to go into a blow-by-blow account of the con. My favorite highlights had to be the amazing Kafeklatch I attended with Gary Russel and Phil Ford (Russel was in complete Silurian make up the entire time, it was amazing and hilarious and I think I developed a crush on them both XD); the Masq, which was epic as always; Karaoke (my first time attending, sadly I never made it on stage); the panels, the sticker hunt, and the awesome people I met along the way. It was such great fun that I really recommend it to any sort of scifi fan, especially if you love Doctor Who. It's well worth the trip.

On to other, more daily notes. I lost my glasses in the hotel in Gally, meaning that I've been wearing contacts all day, every day, since the last day of the con. Oh. My. God. I hate it. I love contacts for a few hours in social company, but I miss the comfort of glasses at home. So I sucked it up and spent the money on a new pair on Sunday. My sister says that I chose a very cute pair, but I'm a little worried they might have *too much* personality. And they're vaguely purple, and I really dislike purple. But the actual look of the frames is cute and they were the best looking ones there so... We'll see.

Also, school is eating me. On the one hand its very enjoyable. This is the most 'academic' I've felt since I started college, because two out of four of my classes are pretty in-depth for being lower division courses. Plus, it's reading. Even when I don't like it, I still love reading. Essay writing, not so much, but my mind appreciates the exercise after the last couple semesters of feeling so stagnant and idle. My body, however, is feeling the effects of all this academia. I need to find a way to balance bodily exercise with student duties somehow. I start to feel anxious when I'm not doing homework, though. Even now XD

Earthbound is going slowly, but steadily. I'm leaking in trickles of updates to the site itself when I have the free time, and I'll be putting in some work on the comic this weekend after I finish my Jane Austen essay and research for our presentation on the 15th. Hopefully I'll be motivated enough to get that all done by Saturday night, even though I might be "wasting" a night with some RSA peeps playing Arkham Horror on Friday (if I can get a ride and my Homework allows).

I just hate how when I have to do OTHER, MORE "IMPORTANT" things, my art muse suddenly wakes up and demands I draw. Siiigh.

Gallifrey One Convention Update will be forthcoming sometime next weekend, maybe as early as Friday. I'm too swamped by demands from school to do anything sooner, but look forward to a couple photos, a lot of videos, and an enthusiastic personal review later on!

Also a brief mention of WELCOME to anyone who happens to friend me on here because of a meeting at Gallifrey. I'll answer you all as soon as I can!

So today was supposed to be a Sherlock meet at the Griffith Observatory in LA. I never found the group (I really had my eyes peeled, so I'm not at all sure they even showed up -_- ) but it doesn't matter, because this place was gorgeous and really neat. I really had to reign in my inner 5 year old (I seriously wanted to run around most of the museum, it was NEAT!) and try to behave. Chris kept giving me looks, because I wanted to frolic. I don;t think he has a frolic mode.

(In that mind, I need to hang out with some of my more frolic-mode friends, because I've been physically restless and have wanted to be active for the last two weeks).

You know, I never really appreciated living so close to LA, but being able to see it from this kind of vantage point really reminded me that this really IS a place that people from all over the world come to see. I don't think it would be my first choice of famous places to live in or near, honestly, but I'm learning to see what it is that everyone sees in the place. It has it's own beauty, and it's very much a SoCal/LA Area specific beauty. I wish I had a car and a better camera, because I learn to love this place through photos, honestly, and I'd like to take better ones around the place.

Anyway, here are some photos ♥

Los Angeles is 72 suburbs in search of a cityCollapse )

You know, Chris is a nice guy, and I feel terrible for admitting it, but honestly when it's just me and him, I feel stupid. He's smart. Really, really clever, to be honest, and with a memory like the Encyclopedia Brittanica. He has a mind for details and can tell you something about nearly everything, and he usually does. Which is fine to me, usually, though sometimes he can get fixated on finishing a story and get annoyed when interrupted, but that's normal for most people I think. It's just that I don't have a head for details. I know I'm not stupid, but I don't always remember dates and names, and sometimes -ok, OFTENTIMES- I'm wrong about some trivia. Which is fine, but Chris always seems to know the right info and corrects me. Not meanly, I don't think even consciously, he just throws it out there as "Well, actually...". And I'm left feeling like an idiot. So for some reason, today I was feeling especially stupid. I think it was a combination of not finding the meet, not eating anything but a brownie all day, and having a particularly bad mouth day (that is, I was really having a hard time getting my brain and my mouth to say the same things) and it was getting under my skin. So I think I was more on edge with Chris today than he deserved. I mean, constantly being corrected is annoying, it's true, but if I was clever I wouldn't have to constantly be corrected. Yes, he does have a bit of a one up on me in this (both his parents are Doctors, one in Physics and one in Medical) but still. I still had fun today, but...well, whatever.

Oh intellectual insecurities. Do shut up.
