You curl up in bed with your laptop at 6 in the evening and wake up twelve hours later.

Today's a stay-at-home-to-write-reports day. I have three reports to write: an observational one, a written analysis of an activity I animated yesterday, and a client profile to finish writing.

It is clear my two weeks of relative quiet are over. See you all in December!!

Just kidding, but yeah, I'll be really busy until December 7th. But then I have about four to five weeks off. So excited!

And now I'm off to respond to comments (but an enormous THANK YOU is in order right now) on my latest silly Kurt/Blaine story. If it qualifies as a story... XD

Seriously, thank you, friends! ♥

Hi!

So I have a midterm tomorrow for which I should be studying, and an activity I need to plan out for the girls at the group home, but all I really want to do is continue working on the first story I've gotten real inspiration for since the summer.

Preview? )

If only I didn't have a midterm tomorrow, for which I desperately need to study. I'd prefer not to spend my evening memorizing the causes and treatments of cerebral palsy, and the difference between epilepsy and seizures BUT -- duty calls!

I think I have nearly completed my Integrative Project! I figure I've got another 500 words to write and then this baby's finished! I just wanted to share this news with you because it's been a major work-in-progress for the last month and a half. I can't wait to be done with it!

After that I've got an essay due on Fight Club, and then I'll be a couple weeks away from the end of the semester. Can't wait. I'll be able to focus on my Psych fic and give it the love it deserves.

I went grocery shopping on Thursday and now I have food in my apartment. Man, I love food. I bought some vegetable hummus and it is incredibly delicious.

Tangent: Know what pisses me off? There's this guy on American Idol this season called Adam Lambert who is quite talented and awesome, and he happens to be gay. All over YouTube, people are like, "gay or not, he is awesome". I know the internet is full of stupid and I should probably just ignore it, but goddamn it, what the fuck does that have to do with anything? Ugh.

after doing a bit of addition, I've figured out how many words I need to write in the next three weeks, so I tought I'd share the information with you, along with a breakdown:

integrative project: a collective 5,250 words
english essay on fight club: 1,000 words
yoga assignment: 500 words

which equals roughly 6,750 words. luckily I just finished my sculpture assignment, so that's 500 words that I was worrying about outta the way.

my best friend's boyfriend offered to lend me his extra laptop for the next month, which will prove to be unbelievably helpful. I owe him my academic life. this way, I can spend the next week and a half holed up in the library writing my essay, instead of sitting at home with the various distractions I just can't seem to escape.

I'm going to a hot yoga class on Monday. sounds like it'll be lots of fun.

lastly, I watched the most recent episode of House last night. cried like a baby. wept. sobbed with all my heart. several times today I've stopped and said, "WHY!?" I mean, I know why. Kal Penn left the show, and for excellent reasons, but I can't help wonderful why the character would do it. it makes me so sad because he had so much fucking potential. he could have been the next House. fuck man. I hate suicide. it never fails to make me feel sad and scared and alone.

Today was fairly eventful.

I had lunch with the aforementioned crush, which helped to establish that crush as directionless and in the process help me gain a new friend! And hey, I can always use more friends!

I presented the proposal for my Integrative Project, which is the project I need to tackle and pull off in order to graduate from college. It went well. I can tell my teacher trusts me and my process, and I know he's going to give me the guidance and freedome to do what I want to do successfully.

I also gave an oral presentation on gender assumptions in Men and Masculinity. Not entirely sure how that went, but I'm a little wary about the length (i.e. mostly how short it was). We'll see.

I had a scare with one of my classes where I thought I was failing, but it turns out everything's fine. It was just an error in the marking scheme thus far in the semester, so that's a relief!

And finally, I came home this afternoon to find my internet disconnected. I then spent 45 minutes on the telephone with Rogers/AT&T, where I was transferred from Tech Support to Customer Service to Accounts Receivable, back to Tech Support again, where I learned I needed to speak with Customer Service one last time. After being put on hold for another fifteen minutes of muzak, including some jazzed up versions of Killing Me Softly and Cat's in the Cradle, I was finally put in touch with a representative of some department or other who explained that my internet has in fact been disconnected since this past January. I informed him that there has in fact been no change in my internet service whatsoever, and after some arguing over whose fault the whole mess was, I asked if he could please recennect my service. He quickly told me that the re-activation process would cost 29.99, and - well, that's when I started getting pissed off. I said, "I've been transferred 6 times in the last 45 minutes, I've been on hold for fucking half an hour, and now you're telling me that I've gotta pay 30 bucks to have my account reconnected when I never wanted it disconnected in the first place? Forget it; this is bullshit." And that's when the guy said, all friendly, "What would you like me to do, Ma'am? Would you like me to waive the re-activation cost?" ...

No, I'm not even kidding. Anyway, it's all sorted out now. I've got my internet connection back, even though the dude said it would take at least 24 hours to get it up and running. I just think it's incredibly funny that I've been receiving free internet for over two months. Funny and satisfying and fitting!

And that is the very long story of my day. Hope yours was better!
