Guess who's employed at the university library?! If you guessed someone other than me that was kind of silly. :D This is a giant relief, as this is the job I wanted the most. I've cancelled my tutoring interview (though I may still volunteer through the program). I have some paperwork to do and then I can start. I'll be doing administration support and maintanence for the printers and computers. Not glamorous, but it pays and it's close!

I got your package [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler! Thanks so much! Just when I thought my day couldn't get better, I got mail and books, and a lovely pretty card. :D

Cancelled the upcoming sessions with the first psych. Apparently that wasn't a free consultation, but an actual session by her records so I'm super glad that I cancelled, because I didn't get anything out of that first one.

So now: dishes, German homework, Socioculture Anth, and then paper writing!

This post is about GOOD things, of which there are quite a few in my life (even though I forget that, sometimes).

1. I am currently 10lbs lighter than I was when I first came home for the summer! That means I'm down a jean size and feeling a lot better about myself. I still have 12lbs to go before my BMI is in the 'healthy weight' range and my goal is 12 more after that, but it's a start and I'm so pleased with my progress!

2. I'm coming to terms with the things I can't control. My family has a history of depression, anxiety, a slew of other mental issues that can be inherited. I've started a conversation with my family and, through the help of a friend who is currently dealing with his own issues, have located resources in DC that I think will help me deal with these issues. I have an aunt who said she never realized how depressed she was until she went on anti-depressants-- I feel the same way about my anxiety. I'm a tightly wound person and I think speaking to a therapist will be beneficial. I'm glad that I have the support to start dealing with those issues.

3. I'm so freaking excited to go back to school. I'm heading to DC this Thursday and am most of the way packed. This year will be fantastic for several reasons, including my awesome schedule (Biological Anthropology, Sociocultural Anthropology, Shakespeare, and 20th Century Irish Literature!) and the fact that I will have a kitchen. I spent yesterday copying and pasting recipes out of library books into a hard cover notebook, and included the ones [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler sent me, as well as my own cookie recipes. I'm excited to try new things and expand my recipe repertoire. If anyone else has any recipes they'd like to share, just give me a shout!

4. The above mentioned friend and I have been making plans to help each other get out more and be involved in things. He's also providing kitchen supplies (dishes, pans and things) so that we can cook more and both keep our budgets down. We signed up for a yoga class together as well, which I think is going to be much more fun for having someone I know to take it with.

5. The past week I've had the opportunity to catch up with friends I've missed all summer, hang out with people I won't see during the school year, and have some great conversations (and great food!). I've even spent some time with my sister and am planning to go bowling with her. Our relationship isn't very good, generally speaking, but we've gotten so much better that I'm actually looking forward to it.

Wishing [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler a joyous, happy day of celebration and a fabulous year ahead! You're wonderful, darling! \o/

Hey everyone (yes, I am alive following the most intense 50 minute class of my life though I can't properly walk anymore, or stand, or...move)!

I'm sure you're all aware by now of the horrific flooding going on in Australia right now. [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler mentioned the other day a wonderful multi-fandom auction going on to raise money for flood victims, [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction It's an awesome opportunity for people to help out, either by offering something or bidding on something.

Here you can find my own offering of three little crochet creatures. The bidding starts at $6, if anyone is interested. I hope you all get the chance to have a poke around and are staying safe and dry. :)

Title: Universal Threat
Fandom: original- Terry/Dan
Rating: PG
Word count: 1185
Summary: Terry gets the fright of his life. After all, what kind of fairy tales do fairies believe in?
Warnings: none
A/N: NaZoWriMo has inspired me into write a zombie themed story. I'm not entirely satisfied with it, but it'll do for now. My roommate helped me to realize how terribly cliche this story is... but hopefully you will all enjoy it anyway?

It was a quiet enough evening to begin with... )

Title: Fantasy Material
Fandom: original- invoking [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler 's Pleasures verse
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 2253
Summary: Glenn visits Pleasures, and finds himself with more than he bargained for.
A/N: Prompted both by This post and by [livejournal.com profile] mee_eep  on my own journal, this story has been a long time coming. (no pun intended)

The only thing less sexy than sitting in a coffee sex shop alone, Glenn thought, was sitting in a coffee sex shop while talking on the phone with your mother. )

Title: Caffeinated
Fandom: original (Terry/Dan)
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 1917
Summary: Dan and Terry visit everyone's favorite coffee shop and learn something new about each other. Who knew fairy magic reacted badly to caffeine?
A/N: [livejournal.com profile] theotherdibbler  issued this challenge for stories set inside this coffee shop. I thought it was time Terry and Dan joined the fun. Brand names are stolen from the original stories, and I might be writing another one about the shop. There's a certain phrase I didn't quite work into this story, but won't let me go. In any case, enjoy!

On to the shop... )
