Day two of the Harry Potter challenge for me! Okay, yes, it's past midnight, so technically I'm late. Shhhh.

The Questions )

Day 2: Your favorite movie
Hmmm. This one is pretty hard for me. I genuinely can't remember the GoF and OotP movies, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't either of them. I think The Half-Blood Prince would have been my favorite if it wasn't for certain annoying factors. For example, if they hadn't messed up Harry and Ginny's kiss (actually, I don't like Bonnie Wright as Ginny at all, but that's another story). Other than that it has some great comedy, and it skips over most of the boring parts involving Harry and Dumbledore's "lessons" (I know that was like the main plot of the book, but it was so boring omg), but due to the fact that I have the same problems with it that I have with the other newer movies (I'll get to that on Day 19), I'd have to say that overall The Philosopher's Stone was the best movie out of the series. It keeps very close to the book, the acting is great (old Dumbledore FTW), and little Harry, Ron, and Hermione were adorable.

Now, onto another Potter-related matter. I know I'm bad for shamelessly advertising things that I like, but this one is especially awesome. If you like Harry Potter, you should check out Mark Reads Harry Potter. It's the chapter-by-chapter reviews of Mark, a 26-year-old man, reading Harry Potter for the first time (having never seen the movies either) and turning into a complete fanboy. It's kind of amazing.

And that is all. So long and goodnight.

Alright, so, I've abandoned the linkbait generator for my titles, because it's rather boring once you've seen all 20 or so titles. Now, I'm going to title them the way Neil Gaiman titles the chapters in Anansi Boys. Because I suck at regular titles. And also I'll be using my full name in them, because I've gotten into the habit of using it again.

Yesterday was my job hunting day. I ran all around town in heels and a skirt for six hours, dropping off resumes and filling out job applications. I applied for fourteen jobs in total, so I'm hoping I get at least one of them. The guy at Dairy Queen says he might be able to interview me on the weekend, so fingers crossed.

Anyway, the main reason for this post is this: The thirty-day Harry Potter challenge which I stole from [personal profile] fizzyblogic.

The Questions )

Day 1: Your favorite book
I know that most Potter fans will disagree with me, but my favorite book is The Order Of The Phoenix. Everything about it is awesome, although the best part is easily the school's rebellion against Umbridge (especially Professor McGonagall omg, that was the book where I really started to love her). Also, the Department of Mysteries fascinated me to no end when I was a kid, and still does. It was only recently that I realized that each room represented something very simple: Time, death, the future, etc. It's so cool.

Apparently, the entire internet is working together to make my heart explode with happy today. Thank you, internets ♥

I have now been sick for nine days straight. I went to school once this week. I am still not better. I'm going to fail History and French. D:

Now, positive things!
  • I have the best boyfriend ever. He's been over here to keep me company six out of the nine days I've been sick. ♥
  • MarkReadsHarryPotter is the best blog ever. I was unsure if I could handle it until he got to chapter four of book one and he loves it and this makes me ridiculously happy.
  • BrettTheIntern is my favorite person ever. He's so hyperactive and silly and awesome and I just wanna hug him *__*

So yesterday, as I mentioned, I was horribly sick. I was expecting to be lonely and bored all day, but then after school let out, my boyfriend showed up at my house and announced that he was going to take care of me till my mother got home. So he made me food, got me some more blankets, and snuggled me till I felt better. It was actually the sweetest thing anyone's ever done for me. He is awesome ♥

I am home from school sick with some mysterious disease that includes a sore, swollen throat; blocked ears; all-over aches; sluggishness; and chills. Flu? Respiratory infection? Not sure. It sucks. SGA and sleep are getting me through the day. Also it apparently affects my ability to type, because I've had to correct multiple typos in almost every word I just typed. I am going to curl up with SGA now, goodnight. x_x

Last night I dreamed that I was at this party-ish thing in a random small town that my mind invented, and Tyson Ritter was there (he was dressed in pink skinny jeans, but otherwise he looked like 2006-Tyson). I hung out with him a lot while some band (I think it might have been Hit The Lights) played on a mini stage. Then Tyson announced to everyone at the party (there was only about 25-30 people) that AAR would be playing a show in that town every night during the next week, and everyone who came to the party would be able to buy their tickets before the concert was even announced to the general public. Then I hung out with Tyson some more and it was awesome :)

That was actually the first time in a long time that I've had a dream that wasn't a nightmare. It made me happy :D

Kay, so, I'm apparently not allowed to use rich text. HTML it is!

  • I like my boyfriend so very much. ♥
  • I have not had time for the internets lately! D:
  • I'm still struggling through season 1 of SG-1. I find it so boring =.=
  • School is incredibly easy lately. No homework. I likes it.
  • Is it bad that lately I've been reading nothing but Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett? >_>
  • I've gone over a week without playing Dragon Age. Addiction cured? Probably not.
  • SGA IS ON YOUTUBE. I CAN VID. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this already. BUT YAY.
  • I definitely need to work on my SGA/AAR crossover. Why is it that I never noticed how often the Genii come up in that show until I tried to exclude them from the story? Not looking forward to introducing them. -.-

My computer broke down! I have a new best friend! Dragon Age is my life! I am not stressed anymore! My mother trusts me! I like my life! I gotta go to bed now; proper update tomorrow. ♥!

Dear mother,

Here are some rules that I follow when someone in the house is sleeping. I suggest you start following similar ones.
  1. Do not talk to yourself right outside their bedroom door. Especially when your talking is more like shouting.
  2. Do not stomp up and down the hall as loudly as possible wearing shoes.
  3. Do not slam doors. They close just as well when you shut them gently, I promise.
  4. Do not knock on their door and ask for their laundry when you don't plan on doing laundry for another couple of hours anyway.
  5. If possible, pick one end of the house and stay there. Do not stomp up and down the hall in your loud shoes every 1-2 minutes.
Thank you.

In other news, my dreams went crazy last night. It started with this courtyard with various doors that lead to a 5-story gym, a marine biology lab (with an adorable baby octpus-ish thing), and a bunch of people in lab coats, taking apart cell phones. Then you had to slide down one of two slides to get to a beach where they sold soda, ice cream, fudge, etc. There was also an apartment building where Adam, Brad, and my aunt all lived. Me and Molly were at the beach, trying to climb up the slides to get back the the courtyard. Then this girl from my school named Brittney sent a package down the slide that contained a survey about Tyson Ritter. IDEK. There was some more stuff about Brad and Adam but I don't really remember.
Then it changed into a SGA dream, where Sheppard, McKay, Ronon, Ford, Weir, and some random nameless soldiers were underwater in a Puddle Jumper, being chased by a giant version of the octopus from the marine biology lab, and the Puddle Jumper was broken and couldn't fly, so the only place they could escape to was this island that was owned by the Genii. They got onto the island and were trying to sneak into the Genii building (they had like... this big apartment building type thing. IDK.) but they got caught. The Genii offered them grapes and cookies, but McKay, Sheppard, and Ronon were the only ones smart enough not to eat them, and the rest of the team all got poisoned. Then the Genii let McKay, Sheppard, and Ronon go, and they gave them guns, and then they were talking about Beckett and Jack Barakat randomly appeared and he was like "William Beckett? Or the scottish Beckett?" and everyone else was just like "....." and it was weird. The end. 

Also, random discovery of about five minutes ago: WHY DOES EVERYONE FROM HEROES END UP ON STARGATE AND VICE-VERSA?
I mean, really, it's just starting to get ridiculous. xD

Mostly I just wanted to show off my new SGA userpic. It's the first icon I've ever really made ("made" meaning doing something other than just cropping an image) and I'm super excited about it. Like, way more excited than anyone should ever get over a 100x100 image. But it has a Puddle Jumper! :D

In other news, I went shopping today with the intention of buying a skirt, and came home with basically an entire summer wardrobe. I spent close to 100$. Ahah >_>

I got two new short skirts, two tank tops, a corset/tank top kind of thing, pink ripped jeans, and new flats. I also used a gift card to get new shoes that I've named ninja heels: They're one-and-a-half inch high heels, but they're covered with fabric to make them look like boots with flat bottoms, so people will think I'm taller than I actually am when I wear them. :D

Okay, I'm done. I really just wanted to use my new userpic xD

Ugh, youtube has failed me. I swear, there are NO Sheppard/Ronon or McKay/Beckett fan videos out there. I mean, I don't mind watching McShep (which there is thankfully a TON of), but John/Ronon and Rodney/Carson are my two favorite pairings. And there is WAY too much John/Teyla. -___-

...Sorry, I had to rant about that. If and when I can find downloads of the SGA episodes somewhere, I will add to the numbers of vids for those pairings. >=]

....And while I'm on the topic of vids, I posted a new Claire/Gretchen vid the other day, if anyone's interested? :D

3darkmaterials: (Default)

I've done some crossing out on my intro post, now that me and Brad are officially over. (Ignore that sentence if you're reading the LJ crosspost of this entry). It makes me feel better, somehow.
I've discovered recently that I no longer feel the need to be in a relationship. Like, if I met someone that would be nice, but I'm also okay with just having friends, for now. Friends are awesome :)

I've also discovered that, when I go to bed after 1 a.m., I get woken up between 9 and 10 a.m. by nightmares. It kinda sucks. However, the other night I had an amazing dream. I was starting a new job (that right there is awesome enough to begin with), and my boss was Mr Woolsey from SGA, and the person who was training me was Ms Nicholson, the student-teacher from last term's English class, who I have an embarrasingly huge crush on. It was a pretty awesome dream. Except then I ended up being chased by a wasp that turned into this thing that looked like a mixture of a Wraith and Johnny Depp from Alice In Wonderland, so yeah, nightmare.

Now, I should probably go take a shower and start on that essay I was supposed to be working on. Heh. >_>

3darkmaterials: (Friends <3)

I don't normally post excerpts from things I'm working on, but I was REALLY proud of this paragraph, so I thought I'd post it here. It's from chapter 5 of my AAR/SGA crossover.

Thankfully, William didn't bring it up until they were safely inside Nick's room.

"So...." he said, playing with his Jell-o (blue
again). "I see that you and Ritter are getting along better."

"Yeah," Nick said. "He saved my life." And that was, as far as he could tell, the reason that things had changed. From that moment on, they'd been... not friends, exactly. Something that was similar to friends, but deeper and stranger and less certain all at the same time. Nick couldn't find a word for it, no matter how hard he tried.

"He saved your life?"

Nick nodded. "I was almost hit by a Wraith stunner. The Wraith who fired it was only a few feet away. If Tyson hadn't pushed me out of the way and killed the Wraith..." Nick trailed off, memories flooding his mind: the Wraith's sharp teeth, their green skin, the way one of them had killed the Athosian so efforlessly...

"Are you okay?" William looked concerned.

"Yeah," Nick said. "I'm fine. Just tired." He faked a yawn, which turned into a real yawn halfway through, and suddenly his tiredness caught up with him.

"I'll let you get some sleep, then." William picked up his tray and smiled. "Good luck with Ritter."

"Thanks," Nick replied. He looked at his clock. The next briefing was at 7 a.m. Thirteen whole hours away...

As soon as William was out of the room, Nick pulled off his boots and his vest, crawled under the covers, and fell into an uneasy sleep, disturbed only by the occasional phantom-image of a clawed hand embedded in Tyson's chest, draining the beauty from his no-longer perfect face.

It took me about forty minutes and a lot of thesaurus work to write that. xD

In other news, my mother promised to let me sign up with a modeling agency as soon as I can pay for it myself! \o/
3darkmaterials: (Default)
I think I want to be a model. Not as like, a career, but as a part time thing. I've been researching it, and it sounds like something I'd really like to do. From what I've read, it seems pretty cheap to get started (by cheap I mean, like... a few hundred dollars, but still) and modeling has been one of my dreams since like, seventh grade. Not runway modeling, but catalogue modeling or fashion modeling (on a small scale). I'd have to wait a while, at least until I get a job so I can start saving money, but I think I'd really like to try it. Then again, this will probably be another dream that gets crushed by my mother, like when I wanted to learn to scream. *shrug*

So today when I came home I happened to glance at the news on the Sympatico home page, and I discovered this. It really pissed me off. I guess that because people at my school are so okay with homosexuality, I forget sometimes that people in other parts of the world are still ignorant and homophobic. It kinda made me realize that I should stop skipping GSA >_>

In other news, Brad is refusing to hang out with me because when he told me he wanted to hang out tomorrow, I replied with "Don't say that unless you mean it". I'm pretty sure that's a valid request after three months of him not hanging out with me. But I'm guessing my temper is not helping the matter. Fml.
3darkmaterials: (Friends <3)

Me: You're like... my John, my Carson, my Sam, and my Radek all in one. Me being Rodney in that metaphor.
Brad: ...Thanks! :O

Sometimes, I love my life. xD
