Hi everyone, I'm off to England in about an hour for a one-week visit to family. I have no idea how often I'll have internet access, but if I'm not commenting or late with commenting, that's why. Have a very happy & safe New Year's Eve! ^_^

Despite my best intentions, it's been a long time since I last updated this journal. Since my last update, I've graduated college, looked for a job, started a job, bought my first car, and, as of today, turned 22. Oh, I've also started up a Facebook account for the first time ever, as my RL friends insisted. I'm still at the stage of eying it suspiciously. Anyway, at the moment my life is busy and often confusing, but overall I'm happy. ^_^

life update

It's been over two months since my last post, so I suppose I really should write something. I've had this journal for nearly a year now, and this will be my... 14th entry, I think? Oh well, at least this isn't a paid account.

Anyway, I've been really busy lately. I'm graduating in less than four weeks now, I have a lot of tests/papers/projects ahead of me, and I still don't know what I'm going to next. Guys, my life plan ended with college. I have no idea what I want to do in the Real World. *beats head against table*

In more cheerful news, I've recently gotten into Katekyo Hitman Reborn (episodes can be found on Crunchyroll). It's about an ordinary Japanese middle school student who discovers he's the heir to a mafia family. Yeah. Unsurprisingly, complications (and hijinks!) occur. The series bounces between being unexpectedly funny and unexpectedly serious, and despite some problematical treatment of the female characters (shonen series, why do you do this to me?) I'm enjoying it a lot. Also, there's a lot of really great KHR fanfic out there. ^_^

One last thing: [community profile] kink_finders! It's "a multi-fandom fic-finder community to help you find fics that match a kink you might have -- for a broad definition of "kink" meaning "anything that presses your buttons and gets you excited". That might be something that fits the traditional meaning of kink, or a narrative technique, or a type of character, or whatever." I'm enjoying this community a lot- I like offering recs and seeing what other people recommend for a wide variety of topics. I highly encourage you to join or subscribe- the more people who get involved, the better it will be. *sparkles*

Well done, Canada!

I've been watching the opening of the Winter Olympics. I hadn't even remembered it was starting today, but my brother texted me about it and told me I should watch. It was massively impressive, which I suppose could have been expected. It was the first Olympic opening ceremony I've watched, though I've seen bits of previous Olympics. I like to watch the women's gymnastics in the Summer Olympics. ^_^ I'm not sure what I'll watch from the winter sports, but I'm sure I'll end up watching something.

Anyway, the yay!Canada part of the entertainment was done awesomely, and Leonard Cohen performed "Hallelujah", which was brilliant. It was a pity that one of the four pillars failed to rise when they did the lighting ceremony, but it was still very impressive-looking. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

ETA: Ahem. Apparently it wasn't Leonard Cohen singing. It was still awesome, though!

Well, I'm back. Actually, I was back a while ago, but I wanted to write up a long post about how good my trip was, despite problems coming home at the end, and I didn't have the time. Then my grandfather died, and I had even less time.

I knew it was coming. He had prostate cancer, and it had gotten... pretty bad. Anyway, I returned to England for the funeral on Saturday the 23rd of January, the funeral was the following Monday, and I returned to America the day after.

I should write him a better tribute than this, but I really don't have the words. Rest in peace, Grandpa.

Happy Christmas, everyone! I'm off to visit family & do vacation-type things, and I won't always have internet access. So if I'm not replying to anything, that's probably why. Sorry, I'll try to catch up later!

good stuff

My family & I saw the new Star Trek movie last Sunday. I know I'm a bit behind the times, but it was AWESOME.

Hung out with L & watched FMA on Wednesday- much fun.

And today I went to B&N after work, and read C.J. Cherryh's new Foreigner book, Conspirator. The amount of love I have for it cannot be fully put into words. I think this might be my favorite book of the series so far.

Now I'm waiting for Sarah Rees Brennan's book The Demon's Lexicon to come out- just five more days...

work = argh, FMA = yay!

The time between returning home and today was very, very nice. Lots of lazing about in the sunshine with my cats and reading (Terry Pratchett's Nation, finally! also Jaida Jones & Danielle Bennett's Havemercy). Today- not so good. Well, it wasn't bad. I returned to my part time job, where I am a low-level grunt at a major retailer that shall remain nameless. It's better than my previous part time job, anyway. But they had me there for 9 hours today, and argh my feet have forgotten what it's like to spend that much time standing.

In better news, I finally have a firm plan to meet with my best friend L next week to start watching the first season of Fullmetal Alchemist! I've only seen a couple episodes so far, because I kept getting distracted by other shiny stuff. But not this time! L will keep me focused like a very focused thing and soon there will be pretty boys for everyone!

yet more finals

Just one more final now- General Logic at 9 am tomorrow. That is not going to be anything like fun. But then my mom will arrive to help me pack & I can leave, yay! I helped my roommate move out today- her side of the room is looking strangely bare.

Um. I think I'll be quiet now...

First final down! Four more to go, and then I can go home. Not that I don't like my college- I do- I'm just so ready for the summer right now. Of course, that just means a different kind of work...
