 I just realized today that so many of my fandoms just snuck up on me while I wasn't looking. 

Inception does not count, 'cause I don't think anyone saw that fucker coming. Seriously, what the hell? How did that even happen? How am I still so in love with it?  WTFBBQ!

So Hawaii 5-0, which I heard a lot about. Mostly how pretty the cast is. Which is true. Go look: http://blog.newsok.com/television/2010/09/16/hawaii-five-o-delivers-the-goods/ Anyways, I just randomly decided to watch it, just to see what the fuss was about and Scott Caan was pretty much responsible for all my favourite parts in the Ocean's trilogy so why not? And this show is so ridiculous. It's really really ridiculous. I legit, for real, said "This is so ridiculous. How is this the plot?" outloud when I watched it. And then the next thing I know I'm done watching episode 6 and loading up episode 7.

I decided to volunteer myself for the overnight 12 hour shift 'cause I'm smart like that. Sigh. So dumb. Not because I'm tired or it's busy or whatever. 'Cause I'M SO FUCKING BORED! 

Seriously, so bored. I'm working at a brewery right now doing quality control. The only reason they needed someone in the lab is 'cause they're canning beer overnight so someone needs to go get samples every hour. But doing tests on the samples only takes 20 mins, so for 40 mins I have nothing to do but sit on my ass. So yay! Getting paid for doing nothing, but SOOOO BORED! And after 3AM there's no one to talk to anymore. 

And you know what's the kicker?

I get to do this AGAIN tomorrow! Yay! MORE FUCKING BOREDOM! I

I'm gonna be smart this time and leave the extra work that my manager left me to do 'til after midnight. I finished them all at around 11PM and then there was nothing to fill my 40 mins of nothing.

Lalalala! BOREDOM!

I haven't gone to sleep yet since I woke up at 9:45AM yesterday. And my stupid essay is still not done, but I am so non-functional right now. I really just want to sleep and take the late marks...siiiiigh. It is only 5%. But...I just don't understand why it's just not DONE already and I feel like if I go to sleep now I'm letting myself down, though I know if I don't this essay is just not going to be coherent at all.

I feel like such a failure right now. Why can't I concentrate on this stupid assignment?

I'm so glad next year I only have bio classes, which means no essays just lab reports. Essays are just so hard for me to write.

I have a 14 year old girl crush on this guy that I've only met once...at a club, no less. It's completely ridiculous and it's making overthink too much. I don't know anything about him aside from the fact that he is very tall (6'6"), really hot, and funny...and driving me crazy.

Worst part is I know how ridiculous I'm being, but I CAN'T STOP!

Dear Brain,

You have an essay due in less than 12 hours. You have not written anything down of value, stop thinking about this boy and do your paper!!!

Love, me.

PS. Stop acting so psycho. It really doesn't suit you.

I had no idea writing a freakin' research proposal was going to be this hard! I don't even have to DO the research, just what and why I want to do it and it's so HARD! *tears hair out*

I'm doing it on why fanfiction communities are disproportionately women - and so far I'm not even sure if that topic would work, most of the literature I've found on fanfiction are about how they improve youth writing or some stuff like that...so stressed!

Haven't posted anything substantial in such a long time and I don't even know why. I guess my life as an average university student/barista (awesome as I am - also, totally certified, whoo!) just isn't interesting enough for me to even note down. Back in high school I use to post at least 2-3 times a week, sometimes that in one day and I swear my life back then is even less interesting than it is now. And I dunno, I just find that odd.

Not much to update about my life at the moment. In my fourth year of university now, which terrifies me quite a bit because I'm going to have to start actually think about my future now. But taking another year to actually get my Bio specialist degree so I have a little bit more leeway. I'm thinking about taking a year off after I graduate to actually save up some money so my dad doesn't have to pay so much. But he's not happy about the idea and thinks I'm being stupid, which I completely don't understand. Everyone I've talked to thinks it's an awesome, ok, maybe not awesome, but at least not a dumb idea like my dad does. I was thinking of doing grad school in the UK, just well, it'll be interesting and I've always wanted to go there, plus I think I have an actual chance of getting into school there versus the States.

Also, my store is completely filled with 17 year old boys that hits on anything that moves and I'm totally perving on one of them. I KNOW!!! DON'T JUDGE ME! I can't help it! He's cute and flirty and I'm flirty and it's all one big flirty thing! And the worst part is, I'm only vaguely disgusted with myself...sigh.

In other news, why hasn't anyone told me about the awesomeness that is Leverage. I've heard about it before but didn't actually put any thought into it. Until the other day I decided to randomly watch it during one of my study breaks and 3 days later I've finished the first season and am on the 7th episode of the second. Granted, the first season was only 13 episodes long, but still. So yes, people, go watch it. It's amazing! It's like watching Ocean's 11 every episode. The writers aren't big on episode arcs so you can start pretty much anywhere in the series and still have it make sense.

And I have procrastinated long enough on my research proposal, so I shall get back to it now. I'm writing about why it's mostly women in the fanfiction world...or at least trying to. We shall see how that turns out. :)

When my dishwasher goes through its rinse cycle it sounds vaguely like the TARDIS. This amuses me far more than it should. :P

Seriously, people, please find her article called 'Lesbian in Revolt'. IDEK! I've said 'WTF!' multiple times through the reading of this paper. Her argument is so flawed that I don't even understand how she got this paper published. She basically hates men and say that as women we need to become lesbians so we no longer have to define ourselves as in relation to men. Also, the only way we, as women, can become liberated is so completely isolate ourselves from men, to live in a society completely devoid of men.


That is all.

Oh, I'm studying for my gender relations class. It is totally awesome, but makes me cringe when I think too much about the idea of femininity and masculinity when reading fic or watching TV.

PS. I can't believe I'm listening to a song with lyrics like 'BFFs eternally...', but I can't hate it, because the Jonas Brothers are awesome and I'm gonna go to hell for perving on Nick Jonas (who's only 16...sigh).

I don't understand how I can spend an entire weekend working on these 2 essays and have nothing to show for it. I really don't. I don't recall slacking off that much, yet I only have 3 3/4 out of the 5-6 pages that I need by 11AM and 1 paragraph out of the 6-7 pages that I need by 12PM on Thursday. Worst of all is, I wrote the majority of that tonight.


Brain, you need to explain yourself right now.

Last night me and the roomie decided that we needed to add another member to our apartment. So we went out and got a kitten. She is the cutest thing ever and has already claimed my bed and my lap as her own. She's currently purring like there's no tomorrow on my lap. Last night after trying to put her in her own kittie bed 5 times only to have her come back a minute later, I gave up and just let her sleep curled up next to me. Pictures to come when I can get her to stay still long enough for me to take one.

Oh yea, we named her Moya :P Yes, I totally named my cat after the Farscape ship. Don't judge me.
