so I am spending the weekend at my mom's friend's house, because she'll be in Seattle and she needs someone to watch her cat. sort of exciting to have a giant house all to myself, I guess, even though I'll probably be gone during the day. but it should be interesting at least, and hey, money! (although I'm going to have to go buy food, cause it didn't look like she had much and I don't want to eat up everything in her fridge, obv. or maybe I'll just order in. idk, we'll see.)

Claire's supposed to be babysitting all Saturday, too, but it's looking like she might not because she hasn't gotten any information about it. normally this wouldn't matter to me at all, except she has a haircut on Saturday that I was going to take because she'd be gone (I was supposed to get mine cut on the 20th, but Shelly accidentally scheduled it on August 20th because she was going to be in Mexico that week), and now I'm annoyed at the prospect of having to wait even longer to get my hair cut :| I'm coming up on six months (if not more, jfc) and my hair is just so awful right now it bothers me every time I look in the mirror.

....my life is really boring :| also I would really like my body to be 18 and not 65.

PS I have a new layout! (and a new default to go with it lol.) I really like it, I think it's super cute~ and I would just like to say that I want to check back in on the Inception fandom in like six months and see lots of epic fic. that movie is fantastic and I really love the premise, but the characters are lacking and I want to see fandom do its magic. (I also want to see Arthur/Ariadne, aka THE ONLY CANON PAIRING besides Cobb/Mal because seriously fuck Arthur/Eames.)

I don't talk about my fandoms at all irl. it's partly because I don't have any irl friends who are interested in them and partly because after the J-Rock fandom I looked back and went "oh my god people saw me as one of Those People" and that is just scary.

you guys I'm probably anemic :( also okay on a random note: we were talking about birthdays today and it sort of hit me that I'm a) turning 18 and b) it's my Golden Birthday. I feel like I should have some huge party haha.
misters: (동방신기☀and in that moment)
sophomore year, the Bio II classes went on a field trip to the coast to look at tide pools. while there, I bent down to look at something under a rock and pulled a muscle in my lower back (like right where my spine connects to my pelvis, in the "thong triangle" lol). I was in so much pain that I could barely walk, and I stayed home from school the next day to try and recuperate. I've had some problems with my lower back ever since then; occasionally I'll have episodes where my back will hurt as much as it did when I first messed it up, but for the most part it's just annoying or uncomfortable (or unnoticeable).

today, Claire had her foot up on a desk to tie her shoe and twisted around somehow and did the exact same thing. she's hardly moved at all since we got home. and I think this is about the same time that we took that field trip, too. so this is kind of weirding me out.

also I still cannot find a satisfactory explanation for why birds always appear in my scary dreams.

I love this dress so much, I wish I could wear it. (and in vaguely related news, if I lost 2" around my waist (and kept my other proportions), I would officially have an hourglass shape. new goal ahoy.)

I'm supposed to go to Ally's today but I feel like crap, so I think I'll be staying home and sleeping. (and speaking of, I would really appreciate sleeping for more than a few hours at a time. hopefully it'll end after this week.)

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
The novel is an epic story narrated by Yunior de Las Casas and chronicles not just the "brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao," an overweight Dominican boy growing up in Paterson, New Jersey and obsessed with science fiction and fantasy novels, with comic books and role-playing games and with falling in love, but also the curse of the "fukú" that has plagued Oscar's family for generations and the Caribbean (and perhaps the entire world) since colonization and slavery.

The middle sections of the novel center on the lives of Oscar's runaway sister, Lola, his mother, Hypatia Belicia Cabral, and his grandfather, Abelard, under the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. Rife with footnotes, science fiction and fantasy references, comic book analogies, various Spanish dialects and hip-hop inflected urban English, the novel is also a meditation on story-telling, the Dominican diaspora and identity, masculinity, the contours of authoritarian power and the long horrifying history of slavery in the New World.

Grace ([livejournal.com profile] improbabilityx) recced this to me a year or so back and I read it while we were in Hawai'i; it is currently one of my favorite books of all time (along with Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Great Gatsby), and I'm reccing it because I doubt many people on my flist have read it. I feel like I at one point did a massive quote post of it but now I can't find it and I don't feel like going back upstairs and flipping through the whole book just to find a good one, so instead I present the only quote I found in my trolling of [livejournal.com profile] fehriku:
This is how you treat your mother? she cried. And if I could have I would have broken the entire length of my life across her face, but instead I screamed back, And this is how you treat your daughter?

I am so hungry :< also I need to work on how whenever I feel bad about something I've done (i.e. failing at something again) it translates to me hating my body :/

random thoughts )
misters: (동방신기☀you could come round mine)
so apparently I am a vase shape instead of an apple shape, which is sort of relieving because I saw the apple type on that page and was like D: THAT IS MY FUTURE??? vase is a little better.

my sleep habits are all fucked up :/ I've been completely exhausted by 7:30-8 and usually in bed by 9. last night I slept somewhere between 6-8 hours but Thursday night I slept for 9 hours straight (which is pretty unusual for me) and was still tired as hell when I woke up. maybe it's the fatigue I usually get before/during/after my period? idk but it sucks. plus I'm having trouble finding the motivation to eat. like I get hungry but idc enough to do anything about it if there isn't something instantly fixable (like microwaving or that I can eat cold...toasting/buttering a bagel is about as much effort as I am currently willing to make and we don't have any).

also I have been way too into jaechun lately and Rachel has turned me into a complete pervert :|

misters: (『2pm』leadja)
new default icon of Jay :/ I don't really want to go into it as I'm still in shock, and half my flist doesn't care anyway (or at least wouldn't know wtf I was talking about). I'm trying not to think about it too much, it makes me all ache-y. at least he's with his family.

slightly tmi; Ginny, warning for your phobia :( )

and yeah. how've you all been?
misters: (『dbsk』hahahahaha OH SHI-)
I love the word "chthonic" but "horny" needs to die >:/ it's so crude. can I say that without sounding like a prick? whatever, it is and I hate it.

Leah Dizon lost her baby weight so fast, what is this. the denim top she was wearing in the Kobe show is just horrible though, it doesn't fit her at all.

my shoulders are peeling which means I spend approximately every moment of every day craning my neck around so I can see where to pick at them. also ugh I'm so tired of my left arm being all wonky. my entire left side is just like...idek, somebody messed up when I was being put together.

I need to stop with this whole starting-something-and-then-realizing-I-don't-actually-care business.

changed my profile pretty substantially by the way. not that anyone cares, but you know.

ↂ band camp is over!!! we actually have the entire opener and like half the ballad on the field and it's pretty damn good. I got the warm fuzzies after our parent performance haha. I'm worried about not having the met on during the ballad though, the band always slows down and wants to make it all pretty like a concert when they need to keep their feet going at 90/180. then again, we're only two weeks into the season, so I'm pretty optimistic.

[livejournal.com profile] exceptindreams has been posting some really amazing poems lately. my favorites are You're Beautiful/The Shout (Simon Armitage), The Vanishings (Stephen Dunn), You Fit Into Me (Margaret Atwood), For Strong Women (Marge Piercy), and This Be The Verse (Philip Larkin), although really they've all been exceptionally good.


ↂ I don't want to go to Seattle this weekend :/ Claire should hitchhike home.

ↂ I want to cut my hair super short (like boy-short but a little...longer on top? idk, I'll have to figure it out) but I want to lose weight around my face first, it looks so much better on people with delicate features and mine are...not so much. :///

I.....want to go through my icons and change all the names of everything >_> like DBSK ⟶ 동방신기 and etc. I'll have to go through and change all the icons on my entries though, sigh. ugh nvm too lazy

ↂ ten points to the first person who accurately guesses (/knows) what this bullet point actually is.
misters: (『2pm』we can do it softcore if you want)
goddamn my left eye is sort of lazy WHY AM I FALLING APART FML. one of these days all my joints will detach and I'll just fall into this useless heap and my exterior will finally match my interior :|

so just fyi, I'll be suuuuuuuper busy the next two weeks; knowing me I'll still find time somehow to update, but idk so much about comments, since I'll probably be limited to what I can do on my phone. but yes, for the next three days there is camp 9-4 and then thurs/fri + mon-fri of next week is like...9-8? something like that, idk.

it's going to be SO WEIRD without any seniors there. holy shit guys I'm old now or something.
misters: (슈주☀it's like you think I care)
ugh I'm really not sure whether to be excited for the Avatar movie or kind of pissed off. really idc that much about the chinese characters thing, but the casting does irritate me. I mean, I'm generally all for the idea of the most talented person getting the part, but it's not like there aren't any talented Asian actors out there (I honestly think Dante Basco could play Zuko if he were a bit scrawnier, that man DOES NOT AGE--seriously, playing a REALLY FIT teenager when he was 31? yeah. ageless.), and given that all the cultures in the series were based off preexisting ones...idk, my opinion is that they should cast people for each nation from the culture they were based on. whitewashing (LOOKING AT YOU, 21) irritates the hell out of me :/

in other news, got Michael Turner's Soulfire: Chaos Reign (because omg hot people in skimpy clothing) and some Dark Horse/MySpace collaboration anthology that has a pretty awesome Joss Whedon miniseries in it. makes me happy.

finally, I have started noticing that on all the spaghetti-strap tank tops I have, the straps are too long :| obv it's fine if they're adjustable, but most of them aren't, so my bra is constantly sticking out, urgh. you'd think my boobs would more than compensate for my short shoulders/sternum/whatever, but APPARENTLY NOT. boo my life.

off to Karsh Kale & MIDIval PunditZ (and possibly CSz? idk) in about an hour, ttfn.
