Thank you so much to everyone who sent me a glass heart: [personal profile] jess_being_me, [personal profile] mustbethursday(Don't worry about it, bb ♥), [personal profile] mydoctortennant, [personal profile] donna_c_punk, [livejournal.com profile] lunasky3, [livejournal.com profile] ohmiya_sg, and [livejournal.com profile] locknkey.
Seriously, guys. ♥♥♥♥♥ Y'all have no idea how much it meant to find seven of these on my profile. *squishes everyone*

To everyone, Happy Valentine's Day! The best is yet to come; for the next three weeks, you can get all kinds of awesome stuff on sale. ;)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had fantastic days! My flist is full of Christmas wishes so I'll keep it short; you guys are all awesome, and I couldn't ask for a better group of friends to have. ♥
Christmas went...as well as could be. Pretty good for our family, of which I'm very proud. What does it say about me that I woke up and thought "Oh, hey, Doctor Who day!"

But the real reason for this post! Dreamwidth is officially about to release Community Imports. For those who don't know, Dreamwidth allows you to back up/copy/import everything from your individual LJ account into a new Dreamwidth one. Before now, there was no way if you wanted to move your comm to the safety of DW, because they hadn't developed a system to do so. But, apparently one of their lead developers has been working on it, and they've decided to announce it this week as a sort of Merry Christmas. It won't officially be released for another week or so, but, still, it's exciting! This could really, really change the landscape around here, if comms get transferred over. I think it should be, of course, something like a vote or such for the comms with a large userbase, but, still. It could pave the way for fandom to jump ships. *shrugs* And that makes me happy because DW is sorta like the land flowing with milk and honey and shiny new features.

It's very, very interesting. I got very excited when I saw the news update last night. To be honest, I hope fandom starts transitioning. I don't want it all gone, because LJ does have lots of benefits, but, I'd like to see DW actually give it some competition. That would be amazing, because that might drive LJ to listen to the users, maybe.

(For other DW users, there's even more cool features they announced re: comments AND TAG MERGE OMG DW YOU CAN HAVE MY SOUL HERE TAKE IT and the staff actually answer and explain stuff and just in general...I'd totally recommend reading the whole update!)

Anyways. Wanted to share the news, for those who don't have DW or weren't paying a ton of attention. :)

Hardly slept last night, and now I have a pounding headache that I know is only gonna get worse 'till I actually go to sleep. I even tried melatonin, to no avail.

Basically....ugggghhhhhh. I feel horrible. I don't want to get up and do anything, much less the things I need to do :/

I read a nice happy-ending-ey big bang from one of my favorite authors, but it only made me feel marginally better. Even [profile] cafe_de_labeill's fantastic artwork was unhelpful.

I was fine this morning; before it all hit me this afternoon, I was up at 830ish, me and mum watched four or five episodes of WC that she needed to catch up on. She's still in S2, but I think we can get her caught up before S3 starts again. We just chilled since the boys were gone and it was just me and her, and that was nice. But then the ickyness just hit me. And now the headache is throbbing in time with my pulse and I think my vision might be jittery. Ugh. At what point do these things cross over into migraine territory? The worst part is this is nothing compared to what I've had before, but I still feel like crap.

I hate being miserable this time of year. I'm grumpy and I don't want to talk to anyone IRL and I just want to curl up and lie still because that helps with the headache. But I can't because a) I need to do stuff, and b) that doesn't actually help; the only thing that helps is actually sleeping.

The only thing other than the bonding time me and mum had that's made me really happy in the past 24 hours is the fact that I painted my nails alternating red, blue and yellow. Not the right colors for the season, but I don't have green, so artistic primaries it was. It's ridic but it makes me feel better when I look at them, so thank God for simple pleasures and my ability to accept them.

Feel free to ignore this post, unless you have advice for handling headaches/migranes or want to commiserate(I like that word, apparently? Used it twice in the past couple of days. Word nerd alert!).

You know that feeling when you're pushing and pushing to get through with something so you can get to the break...and then you realize you're just going to have to work and push through the break too?
Yeah, I'm at that point. Looking at my to-do list and how much of it has to be done before Christmas and NY and I'm kinda just reeling. I want to curl up in a corner and watch ridiculous movies and eat popcorn and candy canes for the rest of the year.
Egh. Life. Why you so...full?

In other news, thanks everyone for the well wishes for the benefit! It was good...not as well as we had hoped, and a lot of stuff in the auction went for a lot lower than we'd hoped, but, at least it was something. Trying to divy up what goes where is hard, though, since it's not enough to pay off all of one thing. Just one thing at a time, pretty much, just like always.

Me and the brother finally sat through and watched X-Men: First Class all the way through, finally. I've only got one remarks; yeah, tumblr was totally right, because it's basically one big gay epic Greek tragedy. Everything was sadness by the end. And Charles was kinda unrealistic and an idiot, but I won't get into that too much. Basically, it was good, but, pretty much only on the same level as the other X-Men movies. Certainly not comparable to the rest of the Marvel crop from recently.

Also, posted my [livejournal.com profile] sassy_minibang artwork! The author's gonna put up the main post to the site later(speaking of which, y'all should totally go check out the stories they've gotten. I've only had time to read, like, four of the fics, but they were fantastic), but I won't be around 'till tomorrow afternoon late, so I put mine up tonight. It's over here, for anyone interested!

I've also been working on a 2014 Dean/Cas mix., which has been a...difficult process, as anyone who's been around me during [livejournal.com profile] ontd_spnparty's FFAs can attest to my whining about it. But it's done! And now I have to wait to post it to avoid spamming my comm. But, I figured, hey, I've got people on my flist who'd probably be interested in a peek at it, so here's the covers, if you like;
under a cut because woah, they're pretty big )

ETA: Woah, LJ. Makeover much? First reaction; I DON'T LIKE ITTT GO BAAAACKK. As soon as there's a Stylish fix for it, I'm probably going back.

ETA2: Now I'm gonna go curl up with my printed up fic and work on my piece for [livejournal.com profile] erasureathon.

ETA3 aka last one I swear: They did fix the tags page! It's not, like, two inches wide anymore!

So, working on an essay on The Great Gatsby. That's all well and fine, I actually enjoyed it, compared to some of the books I've had to read for school. I also love the themes addressed in the book that we have to write about. That's awesome, too, because everyone knows I love analyzing stuff. But for some reason, my brain doesn't want to write about how Gatsby's pursuit of the American Dream is the central theme of the novel. It wants to examine Nick's character and explore his story and his perfection of himself and how his pursuit of the American Dream colors how he sees the East vs. West and how his more traditional morals deteriorate over the length of time he spends surrounded by the empty decadence of Gatsby and Jordan and Daisy. And how he spends the entire book explaining and analyzing everyone else but we don't actually see much of Nick except where he reflects off of other characters. I keep circling back to Nick when it's supposed to be all about Gatsby. My brain sometimes.
My love for non-primary characters is once again my downfall.

In other, more interesting news, remember the Aerospace Scholars program I was applying to a couple weeks ago? Well, it looks like I got into it! I had really felt like I would, because I had some really strong essays and my rec letter was fantastic, but I always get nervous over stuff that I think's important.

I will be so happy when break starts, seriously. I've already got a list a mile long of things I want to do during my two weeks, only some of which will get done, I'm sure. Top of the list, though, is learning to drive in a practical manner from a real live human being. I feel like Sheldon, for goodness sake. And I don't want to wait for my neighbor to dislocate her shoulder before I actually get behind the wheel.

The food channel has been on for at least a couple hours every day lately. It's pretty much the only channel Mum likes, and if she likes it, that's good enough for me. At least it's not something where you run the risk of something bad coming on. It's just an endless parade of delicious looking food and soft lighting. I will say it's weird getting to watch shows live. The other night we watched Dirty Jobs as it aired. It was pretty mind-blowing. :P It's bizarre for someone who's never had cable and already doesn't watch hardly anything live anymore.

In case I don't post before the fundraiser Saturday, keep your fingers and toes crossed for us that it doesn't rain or sleet or boil the atmosphere or do something equally Texan and ridiculous during the concert. We're hoping for a decent turn-out of mostly well-off people, so hopefully it won't flop. It's gonna be crazy hectic for us, but I know it can be done. The one thing I'm not looking forward to is the 830am wake up, since my sleep schedule has been screwed to hell all week (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] twisting_vine_x, for sending that over my way! :P) with a 4am-2pm sleep schedule. Oh well. I can rally on this! Maybe I can get to sleep earlier/wake up earlier tomorrow.

Right now, just Christmas. We don't put up a tree, since we've never been in a house big enough to do so, but we hang lights and do the presents. It's just one of those things that brings the whole family together without fighting, so that's a joy. Not so much for religious reasons, because while we are religious, celebrating Christmas just for the religion is sorta absurd, considering the lack of religion that actually was originally in the holiday.
I want to celebrate more holidays, like Hanukkah, but right now I'm pretty sure we don't have the resources to do so. One day!

Happy Thanksgiving, to all of my American friends! For the rest of you...happy November 25th! :D

Finally finishing this up! Next I start 30 days of Stargate & 30 days of DW...maybe XD

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
Not exactly a season finale, but for the sake of this day, it fits. The Pandorica Opens(Doctor Who) takes the cake, I think. When it ended I definitely felt like stuff just got ~serious. Honorable mention goes to The Rising(John Doe) with it's last scene. Every time I see it I still get a OMGG WHAT WAS THAT!? feeling...especially since it's not like we're gonna get a resolution.

Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Ummmm...lol best Pilot. Sanctuary for all(Sanctuary) was awesome...I loved the pilot for Primeval, too. Human Target had a really awesome pilot too. And of course, Children of the Gods was EPICNESS, especially the new version they just released.
Um, I know there are awesome ones, but I really can't think of them XD

Day 28 - First TV show obsession
Stargate SG-1 (lol I'm sure most of you know this) all the way. I never watched any of the other classic TV shows of the 90s, mostly because I was either in the middle of nowhere on a farm or because I was too young to even comprehend that there was a TV (yup, I don't even remember having a TV 'till maybe '95). Then we moved away from the farm and I found Stargate and..well, the rest, as they say, is history. Stargate got me online in '07 and brought me to LJ and twitter last year :D

Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Really I'm not obcessing atm. I'm watching the Sarah Jane Adventures, but otherwise, nothing new. But I'm gearing up for the Merlin finale, Doctor Who Christmas special, and the return of Primeval...so there's all that on the horizon :D

Day 30 - Saddest character death
The answer to this one was honestly going to be Ashely Magnus, until I saw The End of Time for the first time. So I'd say Ten's regeneration is probably it, even if I love Eleven.
