Day Ten: One confession.

Secretly I'm hoping that exchange students only come for one semester so I'll have the room to myself in the spring. :x Probably not, but it would be nice to not have to constantly worry about someone walking in on me recording podfic or vlogging or trying to have some alone time.

day 29| write a haiku or make a friendship bracelet or start a creative endeavor

...damn it, I just brought my knitting to campus and left it there, or I'd make another shot at that calorimetry. I guess I'll just make a friendship bracelet, I have lots of embroidery floss and it's been a while since I've done it.

Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.



day 28| call a grandparent or relative that isn’t expecting your voice I'll call my brother later if I remember to do it. I don't like using my phone. I don't think I have enough money to renew my messaging plan as it is, let alone if I make a call today.

done with classes but no time to nap

Day Eight: Three turn ons.

1. Intelligence. I believe I've gone over this before. Like, daily for the past week or something like that.
2. Compassion. I put a lot of weight on the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes.
3. Nice hands. What? Hands are sexy. Nice eyes and a nice mouth also turn me on.

day 27| bake something and share it

I'm going home to do my laundry in 3 hours (I hope) so maybe I'll whip up a batch of cookies while my clothes are in the wash.

By the way, Felix is in my bed right now. Not like I can do anything about that. xD Now I'm going to try to put together a playlist for the dining hall, because inflicting my music on the unsuspecting populace of Wells sounds like a good idea to me.

femmealunettes: (*thinks hard*)
Okay! Got Professor Munoz's signature, returned the IndPsych books and got the EdPsych book. Now I just have to drop off the drop form at the registrar before Logic and I'll be entirely set.

Sad news: the right speaker in my good headphones isn't making sound any more. :( Those headphones were awesome while they lasted. I don't even remember where I got them. Ideally, I'd like to replace them with the same kind of Ear Candy earbuds I lost when I was living at home, but for now it's either just the left headphone or really cheap earbuds from Walmart that don't stay in my ears. Alas.

I didn't get my Body Shop package in the mail today, but I did get a letter from my cat with blue jay feathers tucked in the envelope. xD My mother makes me laugh so hard sometimes.

Annnnnnyways. I have to meet Felix for lunch in 8 minutes, so I'm going to really quick take care of my memes for the day:

Day Seven: Four turn offs.
1. Stupidity. I can't be attracted to somebody stupid.
2. Right-wing-ism. I'm sure theoretically I could be attracted to a Republican, but I don't think it's happened yet.
3. Smelliness. I don't mean people have to be perfumed to within an inch of their lives, I just have a sensitive nose and I react badly to overwhelming BO and bad breath.
4. The need to always be right. I absolutely can't stand to put up with people like that long enough to get their clothes off.

day 26| put something in every single formspring/ask on your dashboard
I have no questions in my formspring. Ask me some.

love and nipples

femmealunettes: (hand in hand)
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)

1. My mother, who is the only person who gave me hugs for a very long time and who I miss a lot now that I'm not living at home.
2. Eric ([ profile] shigogouhou), who kept me sane and not hating myself when I really didn't like me very much.
3. Heather ([ profile] moorishflower), who reminds me that the world can be a pretty awesome place when there are people like her in it.
4. Felix ([ profile] atomicfiction), the first close friend I made at Wells, without whom I would be really sad and lonely.
5. Julia ([ profile] 91cemeterydrive), my sister, who is awesome more often than not and who makes me smile a lot of the time.

day 25| tell someone something you wouldn’t ordinarily share

...well, in Sex Collective I told everyone I have an inverted nipple sometimes (it was pertinent to the conversation, I swear), so I think that qualifies.

meme time

femmealunettes: (finger-drummingly bored : Jane Lane)
Day Five: Six things you wish you'd never done.

cut because who really wants to read about my regrets? )

day 24| pick an album and do nothing but listen to it- no multitasking allowed.

Oh. Okay, maybe I'll put off my reading for a little while longer so I can focus on Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, since I'm only three songs in right now.
femmealunettes: (texting : Sherlock)
I have been suffering an allergy attack more severe than anything I've had in a good long time since about 11:30 yesterday. Felix and his mother and I stopped at the S.A. thrift store in Ithaca and my nose went absolutely haywire. I did pick up a nice pair of shoes and a very attractive long coat for $10 altogether, which is making me particularly happy because I was planning on spending a couple of hundred dollars on a nice Sherlocky coat and I found one for a twentieth of what I was expecting it to cost. It really looks pretty spectacular on me, too. I just have to remember to fetch my scarf next time I go home.

So yes, I am in Owego right now, sitting in Felix's living room. I have made the acquaintance of both his cats (the black one tried to sleep on my face last night, which did not help the allergies at all) and both his parents, who seem like very nice people. Yesterday we went for a walk through a cemetery with a lovely view of Owego, and watched Taxi Driver, and did homework. Today I finished my homework and now I'm biding my time. The first thing I'm going to do when I get back to campus is take a shower. My face is terribly uncomfortable right now. I believe right this moment Felix is making buttons, which is kind of a solitary activity. So I'm internetting. And memeing, since I have time to do that.

Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
1. Conscious decisions not to be depressed.
2. Fannish musings ("what would Sherlock do?" etc)
3. How much I would like to be asleep at any given moment.
4. Things I need to make LJ posts about.
5. Wondering what people really think of me.
6. My personal style and/or lack thereof.
7. "What's my cat doing right now?"

day 23| something irrational that you think or do

I suppose it's fairly irrational to frame my experiences in terms of how fictional characters would respond to the situations I find myself in, but I do that kind of a lot.
femmealunettes: (totem check. : Inception)
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

1. Be smart. Don't be an asshole about being smart, but show me you're intelligent and I will automatically pay more attention to you.
2. Be kind. Go out of your way to be nice to other people-- not even necessarily me, just other people in general. Genuinely decent people are amazing.
3. Compliment me about something I do. I also respond well to being complimented on my appearance, but it makes a lot more of an impact if you say you like my podfic or my writing or something that requires a brain, not just a body.
4. Give me a backrub. I will be yours within five minutes of starting a really good backrub.
5. Cook for me. It doesn't have to be anything complicated, either. Actually, making me anything works: food, a music mix, a story, a drawing, I'll love anything that's done specifically for me.
6. Listen to me. I go off on tangents sometimes. Just pay attention to what I'm saying. It's okay if you tease me when I lose my train of thought or stop making sense, just... don't ignore me.
7. Like the things I like. We don't have to have everything in common, but sharing taste in music/movies/TV/books is a good place to start, and I do love suggesting things based on what you already like. Take my suggestions once in a while, engage with me on some fannish topic, and you've got me hooked.
8. Be unattainable. Yes, I realize this is self-defeating, but it seems like the people I want the most are always the ones I can't have for some reason.

day 22| catharsis time— let something or someone go

I still harbor a little bit of resentment towards Kristin for what she said to me in May 2008. I need to let go of it. I've basically forgiven her but I still get a little bit pissed off when I think about it... it's not worth the negativity. I'm done with being upset about something that happened so long ago. (it helps that I'm making a new best friend, though.)

I am not exactly fascinating

Day Two: Nine things about yourself.

1. When I meditate, my happy place is the seashore by the boardwalk at Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Even if I try to imagine other places, they're always where land and water meet.
2. I am sapiosexual: intelligence turns me on, and I find it difficult to be attracted to somebody really stupid. This doesn't mean I'm automatically attracted to someone because they're smart, but it goes a long way towards getting me to that point.
3. I try to do my best to treat everyone the way I'd like to be treated. Sometimes better.
4. Ginger is my favorite spice, followed closely by cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla.
5. I get most of my new music from fanmixes these days. I have over 20 fanmix playlists in iTunes and the great majority of them are Sherlock fanmixes.
6. I generally fall asleep lying on my stomach and wake up on my back. Sometimes I can do either lying on my side, but for the most part I flop over at some point of unconsciousness.
7. I am not allergic to any foods or medications (that I know of), but I am allergic to dust and most furry animals.
8. I do not have any clear memories that aren't mediated by my glasses. I've worn them since I was nine, I don't remember what it was like not having them.
9. I used to be scared of thunderstorms... now they excite me and a little bit arouse me. Yes, I can get turned on by inclement weather, no, I don't know what that's all about, either.

It was incredibly difficult to come up with nine things I haven't talked about already. xD

day 21| describe your sleeping arrangements: bedding, stuffed animals, whatever

I have the lower bed in a bunkbed. I sleep with three pillows and four stuffed animals: Olivia, Mr. Squishy, Squee, and Cindy. My sheets are white with wavy grey lines, and my comforter is black with white and grey bubbles.

see? )

I have a lot of homework to do this weekend. Luckily I basically get a three-day weekend every week, because I only have one short class on Mondays. I should probably do my French now to get it out of the way, but I think I want a nap first.
femmealunettes: (in his ear : Sherlock and John)
Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

1. I miss getting hugs from you every day. That's the worst thing about being away at college.
2. You're going to do fine without me around. I have faith in you even if you don't have it in yourself. (don't let me down, kid)
3. You would be a perfectly decent person if you just thought a little more about how it feels to be treated the way you treat other people. I really hope you eventually figure that out.
4. You would laugh so hard at me right now if you knew what kind of straits I was in. And you'd be pretty well justified, too.
5. I can't think of anyone I'd rather have teaching my nonexistent kids than you. Good luck with your student teaching.
6. You amaze me on a regular basis. I don't know how you got to be so wonderful, but you are, and I love you dearly. ♥
7. I shouldn't love you, but I do anyways. I wish I could teach you what to do to break out of the terrible thought patterns you have going, because it hurts me to see you hate yourself so violently.
8. Is it like written somewhere that I must have a crush on one teacher every semester? Whatever, you're adorable and I love your accent.
9. I wish I could just wave a magic wand and fix your life because you shouldn't have to deal with the kind of shit you've been put through.
10. I really hope you're cureable, partly because I want you to be better and partly because I'm terrified that one day I'll end up like you are now.

remaining days )

day 20| pick something indulgent and treat yourself

Mmm, truffle. :3
