Aug. 12th, 2011

Mom and I chatted today after I got off work. I told her about my plans for post-grad and how I'm working at being proactive. She's really proud and impressed and it makes me feel like I'm doing something right with my life.

I'm sending my Power Girl script into DC after this weekend. I know that they will likely just throw it out, but I hope and dream that they won't. I would really like writing comics to work for me and this summer has been about me really putting myself out there in terms of that, what with Ask Power Girl, Ask Kitty Pryde, and (the upcoming) Ask Squirrel Girl. They've been great writing exercises. To bad I haven't heard back from the guy at Comics Alliance who wanted to do a best of for Ask PG. I should email him again.

In other news, I get three new bras at Gazebo. They're all shockingly cute, especially for my size.

And apparently, I haven't updated lj in, three+ months. I guess I don't have a lot to bitch about (other than the DC reboot). I'm really, really happy with my school, work, and friendships, as well as my romantic relationship.

I'm in a good place, although this summer has gotten kind of tough for me. I feel like nobody wants to hang out with me and that other people who are around have just forgotten about me. I know a big part of this is the fact that I am working two jobs, in so much that I end up working everyday of the week, mostly at nights, and sometimes both jobs. I'm happy to make the money, but I'm just about burned out.

Going home at the end of August, which is good. I want to chill with Annie (though she'll be back at W&M) and Ian. Maybe Ian and I can take a day trip to see everyone there? It would be cool, but I'll only be home for a week, so it's kind of farfetched/a stretch. We'll see, I guess.

Weird question: does anyone in Noho know where to get waxed? I've never actually done it and it makes me anxious, so I'd like some advice on the topic.
I got a text today.

Ian's mom kicked him out of the house again. I don't know why, he hasn't told me.

He says he wants to take off work and come up here and crash because he's out of food money. I don't even know what that means. If he has a job down home, why would he come up here and get one? I'm just confused and frustrated.

I care for him, but I don't want to take care of him.

Songs and shit

Day 1 – Your Favorite Song
"Digital Love" by Daft Punk is consistently my go to answer.

Day 2 – A Song You Wish Was About You
"Vanilla Twilight" by Owl City

Day 3 – A Song That Makes You Happy
"Gay Bar" by Electric Six

Day 4 – A Song That Makes You Sad
"Something About Us" by Daft Punk. I cry every time I hear that song because of the beautiful music video:

Day 5 – A Song That Reminds You of Someone
"Don't Stand so Close to Me" by the Police. Creepily enough, it reminds me of Mr. Hoffman and how I had the hots SO BAD for him in, like, tenth(?) grade. Now, when I visit him, he tells me about the time he pissed off a balcony. Color me disillusioned.

Day 6 – A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere
"iGeneration" by MC Lars. I can vividly recall the high school drama room when ever I listen to it.

Day 7 – A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event
"Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Unh Tiss" by the Bloodhound Gang. It reminds me of my last summer chilling with Ian and Annie.

Day 8 – A Song That You Know All the Words To
"Maxwell Dorian, Valedictorian" by Barats and Beretta. Man, that was my JAM senior year.

Day 9 – A Song That You Can Dance To
"DVNO" by Justice.

Day 10 – A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep
Basically anything by Jack Johnson. BRO MUSIC IS AWESOME FOR SLEEPING

Day 11 – A Song from Your Favorite Band
"The Kelley Affair" by Be Your Own Pet. It's a darn shame they broke up before I discovered them.

Day 12 – A Song from a Band You Hate
A song I love from a band I hate, totally Usher's "OMG." I don't hate Usher, but I usually don't like his stuff.

Day 13 – A Song That Is a Guilty Pleasure
"Digital Get Down" by *N Sync.

Day 14 – A Song That No One Would Expect You to Love
My tastes are really eclectic, but I guess Beyonc'es "Freakum Dress." I usually don't like songs with more minor, dissonant sounds.

Day 15 – A Song That Describes You
I dunno, "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen?

Day 16 – A Song That You Used to Love But Now Hate
"Don't Trust Me" by 3OH!3. Don't hate it, it's just a little worn out now.

Day 17 – A Song That You Hear Often on the Radio
"Fuck You" by Cee Lo Green. LOVE IT!

Day 18 – A Song That You Wish You Heard on the Radio
"Threshold" by Sex Bob-omb

Day 19 – A Song from Your Favorite Album
This is tough....I guess Metric's "Black Sheep" off the Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World soundtrack.

Day 20 – A Song That You Listen to When You're Angry
Anything Mindless Self Indulgence, but especially "Straight to Video."

Day 21 – A Song That You Listen to When You're Happy
Grum's "Can't Shake This Feeling." It's the cutest song in the world.

Day 22 – A Song That You Listen to When You're Sad
"Dance or Die" by Family Force 5

Day 23 – A Song That You Want to Play at Your Wedding
"Fly Me to the Moon" by Sinatra. I don't care how cliched it is, I fucking love that song.
Also, Mike swears our first dance should be "Skullcrusher Mountain" by JoCo. I say only if we can actually get him to perform at the wedding.

Day 24 – A Song That You Want to Play at Your Funeral
"Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison. I also want this to be my first dance with my father at my wedding.

Day 25 – A Song That Makes You Laugh
"(Lord It's Hard to be Happy When You're Not Using) the Metric System" by Atom and His Package

Day 26 – A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument
The Metal Gear Solid theme sounds fucking amazing on viola.

Day 27 – A Song That You Wish You Could Play
I'm boss at playing things on my viola....

Day 28 – A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty
Don't really have one....

Day 29 – A Song from Your Childhood
"Rumtumtugger" from Cats. I was so into Cats as a kid.

Day 30 – Your Favorite Song at This Time Last Year
The Lady Gaga/Old Greg mashup of "Love Games"?

10 Weird Facts (About) Me(me)

I stopped biting my nails during my first year of college. However, I still chew them. Like, sideways, bending the nail in half. Not breaking, just chewing. It's weird.

I cannot eat something before nine am. Otherwise, my stomach wages war on me.

I love snow. Honest to god, the sight of snow excites me beyond belief. There is never a bad time for snow.

I love reading about drama, I hate being involved in it. Keep your drama out of my direct life; I'll just read you bitching about it later.

I cannot stand JRPG-style video gamess. I don't have the patience or interest for them. The only one I have ever played whole way through is Pokemon.

I am paranoid about reading during work. I work in a comic book store. It's horrible.

When I am awake, I cannot go back to sleep.

When I stare into space, my eyes get really big and my pupils dilate. It's pretty creepy, especially when I'm staring right at someone.

I can rationalize stealing, murder, and the like, but I cannot rationalize why someone makes a computer virus that isn't a credit card scam.

I am obsessive compulsive in terms of pimples. If I see one, I must
