I am now an employee of Portrait Innovations. Pay's good and I'm enjoying it.

I has a diploma now, sitting in a red tube and waiting for a plaque.

I shaved my head for my first day of work, hair almost back in completely since, but that picture was hilarious.

The only other big thing that's going on is that my girlfriend and I have moved in together. You can guess who isn't thrilled about that. She's 'trying' to accept it, which means "I'm waiting for you finally wake up and go date a black girl and 'live' instead because since I'm gonna hate any girl you bring home she should be at least black." Things are working out so far, and even though I know most of the family disapproves for various reasons, I feel that this is the right step for our relationship. Finding out if we can actually live with each other, you know? I know it goes against how I was raised, but it's something I have to do.

My writing is recovering. I'll get back to Persona Dark soon. Already have lots of ideas, some for it and whole new stories. Red Thread spawned something immense, I have to tell you about it sometime Cat.

Anyways, quick update. Seeya guys later.

Now that I've graduated, my itch to write has returned and I've been indulging it. Sorta.

It's been a long time since I did fiction or writing for fun. All the reports and writing in that thrice damned APA style, I think has caused some damage or a mutation of my personal style. I've been trying to figure out what it's turning into, and so far I don't have a damn clue. Funny thing is that songfiction isn't a problem at all, hell it's gotten easier since all the damn script writing and editing I've had to do.

At the moment, I'm experimenting until I get a handle on it. Looking at genres and types of characters I usually have trouble with. Maybe it's mental.

In other news, I'm job hunting and relaxing getting used to Win 7. You guys might see me online more now if all goes well.

*Glares at Persona Dark, and it glares back at me*

I probably should just stop being so anal about it, but I feel I should do something about that plot point. I know somebody will bitch about it. Hell I am since I realized the problem, But revenge is a tricky process, and I like my original idea dammit. I could put a bandaid explanation on it to explain why twelve years passed before completing the plan, but it will bug me and somebody else.

In other news, I'm cool. My university is going to hell though, since Louisiana has the shittiest state constitution in the nation and encourages that budget cuts hit Health care and Higher education first and hardest while the idiots in office keep their ridiculous paychecks. Good thing I'm outta here this semester. I'm also working for the radio station, which means I've now worked in all three major forms of news media. Broadcast is still my fav tho, all the TOYS. A few weeks ago I was the paralab mike for a football game filmed by ESPN U. Those things are fucking awesome, beams a laser that picks up shit for a mile. Doubly awesome was nerding out and pretending to be Soundwave like the dork I am.

Been reading, catching up. Saw some new shit, like Wakfu. Nox is one of the most entertaining villains I've seen in a while, and the whole series started off cute and then punches you in the nuts hard emotionally. I'm getting into Memmosyne next, and I swear to god I'm losing masculinity points because Goong/Princess Hours is looking damn entertaining despite being a korean SOAP OPERA. Goddamnit lol.

Anyways, laters.

Jesus christ, where to begin...

The last month has been particularly hellish, which accounted for my vanishing for large periods of time despite my goal of getting back online and seeing everyone. I'll go into details a little later, but wanted everyone to know I'm not dead or avoiding anyone. I will have some moment of peace long enough to just carpet bomb greet everyone and catch up with everything going on once the shit stops the fan completely enough to breathe. The good news is I'm one semester away from graduating, and this will be a less stressful one than the last so I can get back in the swing of things. Cat, I've read a few of your fics, and enjoyed them. I'll leave some comments and criticism when I get a chance to again, but I did read them and I have to admit I'm more than a little swayed to a Hina/Gaara than I originally was.

I also can proudly say that my inspiration has returned finally for the project I've been forced to abandon for a while, Persona Dark. I think once I can sit down completely unstressed, I can belt out the next chapters and finally answer the questions about Dreamer's past as well as get closer to the finale. I'm also feeling my groove returning for RPing and other writing, and considering playing around with AMVs to keep my editing skills up. At that point I'll be glad to take requests/challenges.

I'm in the process of uploading my interviews and other news stories I've done over the last two semesters to freakin Youtube. I think it's working so far, I'll have to read the faqs soon. (after the pile of schoolwork)

God, I'm actually nervous. Youtube. People all over the world (well, those who actually give a shit what's going on in Lousiana anyway) will see my work and slam the hell out of it. Wow. I'm torn between amused and feeling like a media whore.

  Math final at 1:00. Freedom almost here.

Till then, meme time.

Leave a comment and I will respond with the following:

1) What is the single best adjective to describe you
2) The color with which I associate you
3) The animal of which you most remind me
4) A fictional character with whom I associate you
5) A quote that really encapsulates who you are
6) Your theme song, at least in my head

Now, post this on your journal so you can do it for other people.

The Avatar Finale...

...Freaking rocked!

Although I was spoiled, it made a hell of a difference actually seeing it in action. The battles were beastly, and Aang keeping to his guns, despite the waves of bitching over it, made me proud of the baldie. And by the end of it all, I have to admit that Zuko has finally risen above his cunt status, though I already somewhat forgave the bastard after actually watching the beach, day of black sun and the new eps. Still kinda dumb though.

I've read most of the complaints on the finale before hand, and looked for them while watching. In all, I saw the writers DID actually adress a lot of things that the fandom was bitching about, hell, adressed even in the long recap part. I look forward to discussing the ep with you Cat, there is no one else I can discuss it with I think.

Good job Bryan and Mike, good job. I look forward to the next mini series.

On another note: Aqua? what times are you available again to talk? I'm sorry to hear about what happened.

Laters yo.

One of these days, My mother will lose her power to piss me off beyond all human reasoning and affect my day to the point I am fucking everything up. One of these days I am going to give in to my asshole side when I am justified. One of these days I am going to get proper fucking anger management therapy while I'm at it.

This I promise to God.

Right now I'm going to go smash something until I feel better, right after this goddamn homework.

  Other than that I'm good. Busy, but good.

and infected with Meme aids.

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me" or something of an equally pithy nature.
2. I will respond by asking you 5 questions of a very personal nature. Be warned!
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions, or there will be trouble.
4. You will include this and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them 5 questions.

1. What got you into RPs in the first place?
A.. Cat got me into Online Rping, although I did a LOT as both a kid and acting out my own characters.

2. You've had a hard life for a long time. How has that affected your outlook on the world?
A. It's made me a hella more tolerant person to a fault, a weridness magnet that I enjoy being for the great friends I have met, and probably more jaded and sarcastic that I really should be, which really contrasts with the tolerance a lot.

3. If you could have any power in the world (with the obvious exceptions of omniscience and omnipotence), what would it be?
A. To assume the persona and powers of any character of mine at will, at least once a day.

4. What has been your strangest sexual experience to date?
A. Strangest? Jesus...ummm....Sexual without contact, Being introduced to, eating dinner with and almost joining (still considering) a BDSM group. With Contact, it's between sex in public areas and communal bathrooms, sex while risking getting caught in certain places like a friends kitchen, and umm...Chains, cuffs or crops involved.

5. Quick! You've just been invited to a con, but there's one stipulation: you must be in costume. Who do you go as, and why?
A. Bear Walken from Gungrave. Or Barret from Psi Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy. Not that many black guys in anime I can pull off

I am now taking requests for inteviewing, if you dare.

Fandoms are scarier than ever.   
10:36am 29/04/2008
  I direct this question mostly to Catriana, but Avatar fan is free to answer.

I've gotten into the show quite a bit, and looking forward to the finale. I even scored both parts of Boiling Rock before they were released. So I start checking out some of the fandom to catch up on anything I may have missed and also checking out places to download.

I wind up stumbling into the shipping war over the show. Holy christ.

Now I've had a crack pairing or five, and I am a fan of several couples that didn't jump out of canon, but were presented by fans in a way that made them believable, such as Vincent and Yuffie, or Aeris and Leon(KH). I've even seen Yaoi couples that I didn't dislike although I'm not a fan of it. It's also the internet, craziness runs rampant and if you like a pairing just because they make you randy, whatever floats your boat.

But the Zutarian community...I'm honestly baffled. And this is from a vet of the massive shitstorms waged over Cloud/Tifa/Aeris back in the day. The colors of the scenery prove they're a couple. Zuko was clearing out the 'emotional muck of Maiko' in Boiling Rock. At frame such and such, their bending forms a heart. Sitting beside each other means it's canon love. A hug that we don't know the context of in the finale trailer confirms it to be canon.

I'm not dissing the couple. I just don't understand the level of obsession the community has, to the point of declaring war on fans of other pairings or claiming they'll suicide over the pairing not occurring. Especially when the evidence presented is something so flimsy as scenery, camerawork,'subtext you have to completely throw out any semblance of logic to agree with' or a scene taken completely out of context. Maybe I'm just running into too many of the dangerously obsessed ones to get the kind of concrete answer I'm looking for.

Then again, it's the internet. Transformer Slash exists for crying out loud. I'm not stressing over it, just would like a rational explanation for the couple for once. No still shots, no commentary on the artist's colors matching them up, no long winded rant of biased 'logic', and certainly more than 'opposites attract'. Because if that was the case, we'd see Aaang banging Azula at the final ep.

Honestly though, my main concern is the fight with Ozai better NOT suck.

BTW Cat, is there a place I can stream episodes from?

27 years old. 28 in Novemeber.

You know, I'm starting to understand how my grandparents felt, watching the new generation and shaking my head at some of the retardation. Is it because I'm finally feeling the generation gap? Feeling my age? Or are most of the people I see are just fucking morons? Counterculture is trendy now for god sakes, Haters are the new emo, I can't spit without hitting something from the 80's, and I'm REALLY tired of teenagers, adults who act like teenagers because it's 'fun' and assholes of late.

Or maybe I'm just in a shitty, antisocial as hell mood lately, dunno.

On other notes, Cat, I hope you feel better soon, and I'm glad you and glen are doing so well. Aqua, I haven't properly congraduated you on making the corps, and I will now. Congrats. Jen, how's your kids and your girlfriend? Erika how is the wedding coming along? Princessjasmine I hope your cat is doing better. Star, how are things? It's been a long time since we talked. Shanchan, how is your summer? Anyone else I've missed, contact me, I'd like to know how everything is going.

Sorry I haven't been on as much everyone, Just either been tired or busy.

I'm doing well both in School and life now. Even got some of my inspiration back. Only problem I have is probably failing algerbra but acing everything else.

Will start writing more regularly. Laters.
