Yay, Big Bang Theory made me giggle like a schoolgirl. :D Epic bromance is epic.

I am really getting good about following my Wii Fit, and that makes me happy. I went to the school gym today and did 45 minutes on the treadmill, and I just did my 30 minutes of yoga-hula hoop-boxing, and I think I'm starting to see where people are coming from when they say exercise makes you feel better.

...of course, part of my feeling good is the affirmation that I am the only person to hold a perfect 100 in Sam VanDee's forensics course. It's always nice to have someone tell you that you're awesome. :D

And having my schedule all set for next semester is.... kind of scary in that, I have literally done nothing except be a student my entire life and soon I'm not going to be a student any more. The real world is scary and I want no part of it.... but since I, you know, live in it, I know I have to suck it up and be an adult eventually. And it's a good schedule. My Sundays are going to be busy, but every other day is easy-peasy.

...wow, really, I should feel this good after I work out every time, I would never skip a day. Now I just need my sister to get her ass out of the tub so I can shower and go to sleep and wake up for my psych classes which, oh god, tests in both of them on Thursday, I really need to ask someone to copy their notes from the past few lectures. But I'm not stressed about them. I got this.

femmealunettes: (absolutely gobsmacked : Ianto)
My final college semester, if I stop with an Associate's. Brrr, that's such a scary thought. I've been a student for so long!


Sunday:
1 pm: Western Civilization
4 pm: Ethics

Monday/Wednesday/Friday:
9 am: English Literature of the 19th and 20th centuries
10 am: Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco (March 3 to April 16 only)
1:30: Mythology (Monday only)

Nothing at all on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

So that's a pretty light course load, 14 credits including an online Phys Ed course (Fitness Theory and Application, which is lame that I need another PE credit but this also knocks out my computer literacy requirement) and then come May I'll have my lame little two year degree that took me seven years to get. Wow, I am such a loser! But I'll be a loser with a degree, finally. :D

not a short note

femmealunettes: (bees... WIT bees. : Farseer)
This weekend was kind of emotionally train-wrecky. Not that I was in one of the crashing cabooses, but there's only so much arguing and sniping and bitching that can go on around me before it just soaks in and colors everything miserable. Some day, I'm going to go back to New Bedford and only do things I want to do, and have the freedom to walk out the door as soon as one of my relatives becomes too much to bear. This was not that time by any stretch.

Everything I brought with me smells nasty like old cigarettes and dusty house and the worst odors of party food cooking. I tossed my blanket in the wash and it dyed everything else in there pink... I'm glad I didn't put in my striped sweater. I'm waiting for it to spin out again so I can get it in the dryer, but I'm probably not going to have it by the time I pass out tonight. And I need to pass out.

I didn't get much out of the party itself-- I went in early with everyone, made the deviled eggs and didn't get sick (but it was close), burned my hand on a metal spoon (because I'm brilliant), then went out and slept in the minivan for an hour. My mom woke me up to eat some of the food we spent the weekend making, and then I went back out to sleep again. I didn't even say hi to my grandfather and stepgrandmother, and I feel kind of douchey for that, but man I just felt so crappy all I wanted to do was nap.

On the way home, for the most part it was... not quiet, but tolerable. I read until it got too dark, and then I watched the first two episodes of FlashForward, which I REALLY like. I mean, I like the premise and the story completely apart from the fact that Joseph Fiennes and John Cho and Jack Davenport are all ovary-scorchingly hot. I don't even know what day it airs, I should probably find that out. But yes, new show to add to my list of love.

After I finished up with that, I had to deal with Rachael listening to country music the rest of the ride home, because my iPod was out of juice. AND my mom and I got into it, prompted by Rachael, about euthanasia, legalizing marijuana, and abortion. If she'd brought up gay rights, that would have hit just about the whole list of Things I Hate Talking To Her About... but luckily we made it home before that happened. I had a small but definite freakout in a lull in the conversation. I am getting pretty good at crying silently. I don't think this is something I should be proud about, but there it is.

I took a bath and I feel kind of better now.... my muscles were all completely tense from the emotional buildup and the poor sleep and everything this weekend, and they're a little bit more relaxed.

Julia's turning 18 on Saturday. I am, to be perfectly honest, kind of terrified to see what happens that day.

Hopefully, financial aid checks should be coming this week. I'm going to pay off my netbook, hand most of the rest to my parents, and see what that leaves me with. I'd like to get a new winter coat before it reaches the point where I desperately need it, and I might get Kings on DVD because I can't get my parents to watch things on the computer with me and I think they'd both be interested. I can't remember if they actually watched it when it aired, but I know none of us watched it through to the end. And aside from giving them money for, you know, not kicking my ass out on the street, I want to take my parents somewhere halfway nice for dinner. And I have to get Julia a birthday present. We'll see how much of this I can actually accomplish, I guess.

I'm skipping Botany lab because a) I don't want to get up at 7:30, b) I know for a fact that if I go out, I'm going to have another dizzy spell, and it's going to be worse than the ones before just because of how I feel, and c) I like the letter C. I'm going to go in for 9, since Julia has a class then, so I can make up everything else I need to do on campus.

....it is amazing how stressed I can be when I really don't have anything important happening, really. And how stressed I can still be with a calm-me-down pill in me.

I am halfway through Fool's Fate and I have a bad feeling that I'm going to not particularly like how the story ends. I've enjoyed the series so far, but... I'm so sick of my favorite characters dying in, like, everything ever. :/

c'mon sleepyheads

femmealunettes: (>.> wtf are you on? : Artie)
Well. I emailed the wrong professor about Abnormal Psych... the one on my printout from enrolling in June is not the one actually teaching the course. My teacher's name is Leander. I suppose I can forgive his broken sense of humor now. I wouldn't be very funny if my name were Leander, either. Of course, once I found the right guy, his email address provided through the faculty directory is broken and can't be delivered... so basically I'm fucked on that.

I got the OK from Sanzotta, though, so I'll be able to make up his test on Monday. That's good.

The poll is currently even between song a day and fic rec a day, and I'm heading out to Massachusetts in a few minutes, so I'll take the easier option for now: music!

October 1: The Arcade Fire - Wake Up
If the children don't grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We're just a million little gods causin' rain storms turnin' every good thing to rust.
I guess we'll just have to adjust.


This is the background music for one of the trailers for Where The Wild Things Are. It's also probably my favorite song by the Arcade Fire. ♥ Funeral was an incredibly good album, if you haven't already heard it it's definitely worth checking out. (also: OMFG IS IT THE 16TH YET I WANT THAT MOVIE NOW PLZ)


October 2: Stars - In Our Bedroom After The War
Wake up
Say good morning to that sleepy person lying next to you
If there’s no one there, then there’s no one there
But at least the war is over
It’s us
Yes, we’re back again
Here to see you through til the day’s end
And if the night comes, and the night will come
Well at least the war is over
Lift your head and look out the window
Stay that way for the rest of the day and watch the time go
Listen the birds sing
Listen the bells ring
All the living are dead, and the dead are all living
The war is over and we are beginning


Continuing the unintentional theme of getting out of bed, lol. This song feels so theatrical and epic, the way it builds up from the simple beginning... and this is a pretty positive song for this band. xD I was thinking about posting "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" but that one's got enough personal connotations that I'd want to make a whole post out of it... so maybe later in the month, if song a day actually wins out.

Now: off to the minivan, to Massachusetts, to New Bedford and oh my god please please please to a hotel and not an air mattress on my aunt's floor.

I leave you with a baby firefox:

D'awwwww. Red pandas ftw.
femmealunettes: (aw hell yeah! : Spock)
My forensics teacher, placing my test in front of me: "All I can say is, I'm impressed." So of course I know I aced it before I even turn it over, but I didn't expect what he said when he finished handing out the other exams. "You took that test faster than I could read it. When you handed it in, I thought you were quitting the class."

AHAHAHA NO. Sorry, just nailing it, not abandoning it.

:D I like being book-smart, it helps me feel less bad about being life-dumb.

Lie To Me didn't really grab my attention tonight. Sad. Now that Hugh Laurie looks like a shorn sheep, Tim Roth is the reigning British hottie on broadcast TV, though. *eats him with a spoon* Note to self, Reservoir Dogs, watch it. If you can stand the company, that is.

I have an incredibly short temper with some people right now. And I know it's mostly just PMS making me hairtrigger bitchy, but oh my god it feels like I'm three seconds away from scratching someone's face. Or saying bitchy things on the internet, which could be worse than a catfight, actually.

On the bright side of the evening, I got a good ten minute snuggle with my kitty before he wiggled out of my grasp. I haven't had a good long cuddle with him in ages, the evasive little bastard. xD

Both my tests today went fine. I was the first one done with both of them, but I'm pretty confident I aced them. Also, I got all woozy on the trail during Botany today, and my professor actually called the school nurse afterward to ask what he should be doing when I have a dizzy spell. And then the nurse called me to see how I'm doing. And she told me that he said I have "an exceptional work ethic", which makes me laugh because I was seriously considering just staying in bed this morning. A little effort apparently goes a long way!

Also, everyone in my botany class makes jokes about meeting up after a class to smoke weed. "Dude, let's roll some joints and plant trees! Extra credit!" "And then we can play Halo with Professor Walt!" It's such a fun group of people, really. xD I like having classmates that are funny and friendly.

But mostly: omgomgomg, tomorrow at 3 I'm being let into a radio booth for the first time in years and I am so fucking psyched about it! My classes are over by 12:30, so I'm going to grab lunch and then go down to the station early to see if I can get the how-to on the Emergency Alert System (I forgot, plus the machine at the Quake was like, as old as I am) and hopefully meet the station manager and generally get my bearings. The only problem I see right now is that the station meetings are Wednesdays at 11:30, and I have class at noon. Gotta discuss that with the faculty adviser.

EEEEEEEEEEEE. RADIO. Every time I get frowny, I think "RADIO!" and get smiley again!

So I just made possibly the least suave friendship move ever and asked Greg if he wanted to hang out and "do something some time." *facepalm* We're going to meet up on campus at 4:30 tomorrow, and after that I don't know what because I'm pretty sure he doesn't drive either, but. Social interaction. With a boy, even.

Next week isn't going to be THAT bad test-wise... Botany and Forensics on Monday, AbPsych and Personality on Thursday, so that's plenty of time to study for both of them. I still don't know what the AbPsych test format is going to be, but Personality is all essay questions, and I can entirely cope with that. That class is so much fun, seriously.

I'm done with classes for today, but Julia isn't done until 3:20, so here I sit. She took what little money I had so she could get cigarettes, so I can't do what I was hoping to and get some french fries to tide me over. Oh well...

...yeah, looks like a Big Bang Theory marathon is in order. :D

Keeping in mind I'm still working on that icon-drabble meme (yeah, that was like, OVER A WEEK AGO), I present you with another writing one:

Never Will I Ever meme: Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

I think I can handle writing snippets. xD I think.



So today was our first Botany lab going out to collect plant specimens. I lasted, oh, about an hour, and then I suddenly got struck with the worst kind of head rush-- tunnel vision, ringing ears, nausea, all that jazz-- completely out of the blue. I felt fine, and then I didn't. I crouched to try and catch my balance/get a grip on reality, and Dr. Aikman asked if I was okay, and one of the girls was like "you don't look okay, your lips are blue and you're really pale."

Three weeks into class and I end up in the nurse's office. It's like high school except I could decide to leave, and when half an hour of laying down didn't really ease the headrush-y feeling, I did just that. So. I should be in class in 20 minutes; instead I'm home, hoping I'll feel okay by 4 because I absolutely can't miss Forensics lab, and it should be quick anyhow.

What surprised me is that Dr. Aikman called my house to make sure I was okay after the nature walk was done. That was totally sweet, I don't think I've ever had a college professor that concerned, and he told me he'd have a copy of the notes for me and to make sure I felt better before I came in and it would be okay if I missed Wednesday. Which I don't plan to do, but still, that's so NICE of him.

I'm going to have to go back out on the nature trail myself at some point this week and get specimens of the plants I was around to learn. We have 40 must-know species, and I think I was around for about 15 of them... that's a lot of catching up to do. :/

The nurse was super nice, too, which hasn't always been the case as far as school health personnel I've known. The faculty at CCCC are some of the sweetest people I've met in a college setting. ♥

Well, I am very pleased with my science classes! The forensics teacher told us that he's a forensic chemist and works at the Syracuse Center for Forensics, and that teaching is his hobby. He also told us that he hates reading papers, so we don't have to write any. Can I get a hell yes for Mr. VanDee? Helllllll yes.

The phys ed class is going to be not a problem. I have to come in on Friday to get my body composition tested, and that's the only reason I need to be in on a Friday at all this semester as far as I know. The book for the class I do actually need, but it was 38 cents on Amazon. So like, $4.50 including shipping. I'm not about to complain.

Tomorrow I have class from 9:30 to 12:30. Abnormal Psych and Psychology of Personality. I can definitely deal with this schedule.

The cool thing about having a gym class, at least that I found out today, is that you get a locker for free instead of having to pay $20 a semester to rent one. Yeah, it's a gym locker, but you're damn straight I'm swapping out my Botany and Forensics books because both of them are big, heavy tomes. I don't know about the psych books, but I got to see other people's copies of the science ones today, and buh, no thank you, do not want to carry all day.


...I need to get a pair of rubber boots for the weekly field trips in Botany. I'm debating going the sensible route and buying the cheapest ones I can find, or being fanciful and getting a pair of bright red ones a la Paddington Bear. I've secretly always wanted boots like that... Of course, then I'd have to get a red hat, and a blue coat would be a foregone conclusion. I do need a new winter coat, though... once my financial aid comes in, I'll see about that. xD

Okay. I have writing to finish. *cracks knuckles* Doing that now.

femmealunettes: (dance party in space! :S/Mc)
One class in, and I am SUPER stoked about it! Botany is going to be a lot of fun. The professor is very active about the subject, we're going to be doing a lot of plant walks and stuff like that, and considering the lab is at 8am? that's like, the best news ever because I won't even need coffee to stay awake (but it helps) while we're walking around campus and stuff. There's going to be a lot of field trips while the weather is still nice, so that's really cool.

Also, SO many of my classmates are just deliciously adorable. FTMFW. xD


So I have two hours until my next class.. which is just the lecture part of Botany, actually, and is basically going to be picking up the syllabus, going over it, and done. Then I have to be at the gym for 2, to get the info about my non-schedule-based gym class, and then Forensics at 4.

It's really a gorgeous day out, and I got to see jewel weed (which is super pretty), a huuuuuge poison ivy plant (which is not), and a turtle swimming around in the pond (which was awwww-some xD). So nice out, and I'm glad that we took advantage of it. I'm really feeling positive about everything right now!

I really don't know about this school thing, guys. But I've got to try anyway. Waking up this morning was hell; I hope taking a shower will help me shake off the pill-induced drowsiness because it stuck around until well into the afternoon today and I don't need that shit right now.

My backpack is prepped (kinda), my schedule is down (I hope), and I'm pretty much as ready as I'm going to get. Even laid my clothes out ahead of time. All I need is to not, you know, freak out or anything stupid like that, and I'll be fine.

Things I need to do:
-pick up pills
-call Lisa and reschedule for Thursday
-bring that book to the library, then grovel
-check in with admissions re: placement tests for Julia, so she can actually start now
-call credit card people

-possibly say 'fuck it' re:kink bingo, OR hash out 500 words for "film/photography" so I can at least get a bingo since the X ain't happening
-finish that box to send to that person
-finish that thing to send to that other person for person #3


okay. I can do this. Really I can. I'm a competent, capable twenty-four year old, this should not be an issue.

Jumping through what I thought would be the last hoop for my summer classes... but no. It would have been nice if someone told me that all the grant money was given out and that I'd need another 2 credits to be eligible for a loan. Not that it matters, because I can't take out another loan.

So maybe I'll get one credit instead of the four I thought I was going to, and hope I can make up the other three during winter session, or something.

Well, I got an A in World Religions. xD

Out of 32 credits from PSU, 31 transferred to CCC. I have two courses online for summer, 14 credits for the fall, and with a full course load in the spring I will have an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts by June 2010. So that's all right. Seven years for an AA is pretty embarrassing, but whatever, at least I'll have it.

I almost cried looking at my transcript from PSU. I went from a 3.19 to a 2.42 because of how badly I fucked up the semester BEFORE the semester I withdrew from all my classes. Aside from the one class I had this spring, I haven't completed a single course since Fall 05.

*puts on the fail hat*

Anyway, my online courses are "Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco" (which I hope I won't fail by expressing my honest ideas) and Freshman Comp 2 which I could do with my eyes closed for god's sake, how do I have to take 102 when I've completed FIFTEEN credits of upper-level English classes? Ugh. Which is why I'm taking it online, no need to go in and be bored to tears. Altogether it's about $600 for tuition, which just may be covered by the Salvation Army if what my mom told me a month ago is true, knock on wood.

My fall schedule is kind of crazy. Two Psych courses (Psychology of Personality and Abnormal Psych), two Science courses (Botany and Forensic Science), and a PE credit. That's a lot of... not writing classes, which I don't think I've ever had a semester without at least one writing-centric class. I have to be up for 8AM on Mondays and 9:30 for Tuesday/Thursdays, but I should be stabilizing my sleep schedule anyway, I'm going to be 24 and I need to at least try to be an adult about important things.

At least I don't have to take a math, thank god.

So that's my college post. I have one thing to do for the health office, one thing to do for financial aid, and then... I wait.

Haha, so apparently I need to start posting more again! I feel so boring, but let's see what I can manage.

Out of the three of the Cregans applying for financial aid, I'm eligible for the most. :3 If I actually get the full amount I could... shit, I could pay off the loans I was dumb enough to take out before. I might even have enough left over to *puts hands over Arthur's vido input* get a new computer. A laptop, of course, my desktop is still the shit. Five years old and can run 80+ Firefox tabs, iTunes, TweetDeck, three instances of Notepad, and a brief bout of Photoshop? My desktop. Is. The shit. *pets Arthur lovingly*

Of course, I have to get up to CCC and put together a schedule and all that good stuff. Maybe later this week? I also still have to get a library card of my own, bring back the book mom checked out for me...


...did I mention that I read Chuck Palahniuk's newest? It's titled Pygmy and it was even more disturbing than his books usually are. I mean, seriously, Diary is like a kid's book in comparison. I don't think I talked about Rant, which I read earlier in the year. I really liked that one a lot. I'd have to read it again before I can say if it's good enough to compete with Survivor for my favorite of his, but I did enjoy it waaaay more than Pygmy.

I know some of the rest of you read Palahniuk. What's your favorite of his? What disturbed you the most? (Before, I would have probably said "Guts" but... Pygmy was really. fucking. disturbing.)


Kind of sad-making: I do one of those survey sites, and instead of letting you add up points to buy things, you put them in raffles to maybe win things... I put all of my points in to win a Star Trek DVD collection, all of TOS and the first 6 movies... and I didn't win. D: Le sigh. I have shitty luck on raffles and things anyhow. I do want to rewatch TOS, so I guess my faithful terabyte drive will be nomming down on some serious gigs soon. *pats Gabriel* So full of wonders, he is.


Aha, a meme to finish this off:

bullshit, I should have the option to pick either of the equal top results )

I have six stories to feedback before I'm caught up on the heroes_exchange feedback frenzy. I'm sad because more of the ones I want to read are on one day than the days I need to finish... v.v; Feel like a bad fan because last exchange, I read almost everything, this time around I'm skipping at least a third. I don't know why I have such crazy fandom-related guilt lately except because I take forever to write and I'm not making my word count this month and I haven't maintained my writing masterlist and I can't write with another person which is why I suck at RP and AAAAAAGH

Ahem. Anyway. Tomorrow our house is being inspected by some muckity-muck from Divisional Headquarters. The moving assignments were put out yesterday, a few familiar names are getting shuffled around but we're staying put for another year. Hopefully two, until Rachael graduates. (and if I'm still living with my parents at 25, well.) And after that, I have my visit with Carrie and I NEED TO FIND THOSE OLD MAGAZINES, sheesh, what the hell did I do with them?

If anyone sees my brain, could you mail it back to me? It might be kind of shriveled and dirty, but I need it. Thanks.

Huh... I could only come up with 73 things right now. Well, I have plenty of time to finish the list.

Now, I would like to make a post to do with US politics, so you can tune out if you want.

An Oral History of the Bush White House. The last eight years from the mouths of those who saw the ship sinking from the inside. Long, infuriating, but revealing things I didn't know that make me even more happy that tomorrow is the long-awaited transfer of power.

Bishop Gene Robinson gave the invocation at the inaugural welcoming ceremony. His prayer is one of the most honestly moving things I've seen in a long, long time-- and yet his microphone was off except for the final line. THIS is the man who should be delivering THIS invocation tomorrow. I can't imagine that Rick Warren can compare, and it saddens me to know how many people won't ever know there's anything to compare him to.

[livejournal.com profile] maggiesox addresses (her Republican husband's) concerns about the strength of, in my terms not hers, Obama's fandom, and why the Cult of the Messianic Obama doesn't really bother her:
I think the thing that's easy to lose sight of when complaining about the Cult of Obama (and I don't disagree that such a thing exists) is that a lot of people need something, anything, to pin their hope on after these last eight years of corruption and destruction and despair, and it's hard, sometimes, to just let those feelings float around in the ether.

She insists she's not saying anything new, but I think she put it very well, so go see what she has to say.


okay, no more politics.

The Beauty of Urban Decay, a really fascinating photoset from Smashing Magazine. My favorite is about halfway down-- the angel on the gravestone. Strikingly beautiful in a wistful way.

Did you know that the words "orchid" and "avocado" are both derived from words meaning "testicle"? Eight words you may or may not have realized had such prurient etymology.

Be careful about DNA testing or you could find out that your dad isn't your dad... or someone up the genetic stream's been fishing in a different pond. lol.

Liquid wood could be the new plastic. ...liquid wood, lol, what. I mean, yay for a recyclable and natural non-petroleum-based alternative, but.... teeheehee, liquid wood!

Oh, I am so juvenile.


Bad news: the course I want seems to be overbooked now. :( There's one seat left in the Tuesday-Thursday World Religions class, and nine left in the 6-9pm once weekly class... I kind of wanted to take a class that met more than once a week. We'll see how things pan out tomorrow, I guess. (I kind of hope I get the daytime one also because it's one textbook vs. three... >> but all three for the night course are cheaper than the one for Abnormal Psych.)

Renaming Delicious tags is an arduous task. D: On the positive side, I'm getting a chance to weed out all of the things I don't really like after all. I kind of saved a whoooole lot of SGA fic and I know it can't all be as good as I remember.

Tomorrow. Oh man. Tomorrow holds so much potential on so many levels.
At or around 9a.m., I have to get to Cayuga Community College. Hopefully (oh god, crossing my fingers) my transcript from SUNY will have arrived, proving that I have done the prereq for Abnormal Psych, and I can register right then. It will definitely not happen before 9:30a.m., so I won't be able to attend the first day of class, and with any luck I will be home by the time class is over so I won't be able to get a copy of the syllabus from the teacher.

I will hopefully be home because at 11:30a.m. the swearing-in ceremony starts, and I would desperately love to be able to watch it live. I am not sure what the chances of this actually happening are, but I can hope. I don't even care if my parents are around making fun of me. Fuck them, this is the best thing to happen to the country since January 20, 2001.

...ew, I just looked up the book for the class and it's at least $87 if I get it online, $97 if I find it used at the bookstore. Ack.


God, I'm all flustered-like about doing the college thing again. :/ STOP BEING AFRAID OF FAILURE BEFORE YOU START DANIELLE, IT IS A LAME-ASS THING TO DO. *breeeeathe*

After tomorrow, I have February 2 to look forward to. So close to new Heroes. So very close. New canon, please. *grabbyhands* The previews freaked me out so hard, I can tell this one will be a knuckle-chewing, muffled-"eep!"ing episode.

Agh, I shouldn't have napped, it's 10 already and I don't even know what I'm doing, what am I doing? AGH
