I'm writing today off as a loss. Woke up after 11 hours of sleep (which I desperately needed) with a migraine. Took a red pill for it (I can have up to three) and watched Supernatural, which was good. Took another pill. Geared up in hat and sunglasses to walk to Safeway. Got back and am currently in my room with the blinds closed and only one small light on. Considering taking another pill :/ I haven't had a migraine practically all semester, so I guess it could be worse. But still. Ouch.

May write some more today, or may just watch comfort television. I wanted to go see A Chorus Line (one of the local theater groups is putting it on, and today is the last showing) but all three people I might have gone with have canceled and I'm not sure I want to go alone. The music is good, but plot-wise I find the show to be less than compelling. 

*curls up under blankets*

EDIT:
Oh, also two exciting things have happened/are happening in my life. The first is that the LGBT Resource Center needs another student coordinator and I sent in an email asking about the position and essentially letting them know I want to apply. The second is that I got into all the classes I wanted for next semester. I'm taking Creative Writing, Imitations (a Dean's seminar on poetry), Public Communication, Myths and Mysteries in Archaeology, Intro to Logic and Genetics. \o/ That's 18 credits (which is 4 more than this semester, essentially) and I might die (or drop a class) but I'm pretty psyched for it right now. The way the classes fell, I have no classes on Monday and only two on Friday. :D

Man, I've been all kinds of absent lately, but that's what happens when school starts demanding attention. Everything's going pretty well. Aside from the fact that I'm only just now realizing I may be inadvertently outing myself to my family via facebook. I'm friends with my Grandmother, Aunt, and Cousin- plus my Dad keeps talking about joining. So you know, I'm also in AQWA (Queer Women and Allies) and Allied in Pride, and I guess if it ever really was a secret it probably isn't any more.

Maybe no one's noticed. >.>

In other news, I had real life audible connection with the cute guy from my writing class. We were both in the cafeteria around nine, and when I got through the line I sat down near the door so he would see me. The cunning plan worked and he came to sit with me while we ate. It was lovely. It sort of makes me feel as though I've betrayed my lesbian sisters in AQWA. But whatever. Working the bisexuality.

Also, my birthday is on Saturday. I'm kind of thrilled, despite my lack of plans. Rachel asked to take me out to lunch Sunday (she has rehearsal for the One Acts, and is performing in the One Acts Friday and Saturday), but aside from that I'm a bit at a loss. Friday I'm going to see the show, and also watching Supernatural (!!!) assuming I can find a television. The basement one doesn't work, apparently. Saturday is also the National Book Festival, which I plan on attending mid-morning, early afternoon. Nothing else planned for the day of. I got two packages from my parents though! Mail, a new tea mug, chewy sweettarts, some git cards and coupons, a birthday button. Also got a card from my grandparents, which had a check in it, for way more than I could ever ask anyone for. Maybe I'll treat myself to something. OMG I COULD BY SHADOW OF THE TEMPLAR. Erm. Anyway... Ordered. The check hasn't even been deposited and I'm spending money (I know I have enough to cover it, but still). :D

I'm really pretty exhausted- and it's only ten. not a good sign- so I'm going to wrap this up. Wanted to let you all know you haven't been abandoned, even if I'm a little slow/absent on the commenting front. I've also been writing, but that's been kind of sporadic. Working on two separate stories at the moment that both originally spawned off of [livejournal.com profile] kinky_fantasy  prompts, but kind of got minds of their own. No telling when anything will be finished.

I took a nap earlier this afternoon and feel considerably better. Not all the way normal, but that's okay because tomorrow is Labor Day and we don't have classes then. I think I'm going to go to the library and rent a movie to watch tomorrow.

Today there was a tie-dying booth on the quad, and I tie-dyed a white sweatshirt with purple and blue colors. It's currently in a zip-lock bag beside my desk, so I hope it turned out alright. I'll take it out, unrubberband it and rinse it later this evening to find out! I had a lot of fun this afternoon. There was also a poster sale and I got a Supernatural poster of the boys (minus Cas *sadface*). I also got a little print of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night.I'm quite happy. Now the space above my bed (which is in a corner, and one wall of which is made partially of windows) has those posters, my "-TO VICTORY" dalek poster, and the dream catcher Shaina gave me before she moved. It's quite lovely.

Productivity-wise, I got a lot done today. I sent emails I needed to, read half my philosophy assignment for Friday, printed out my new schedule, tie-dyed, shopped for posters, and applied to six (6) jobs! I had eight I wanted to apply to, but the last two have requirements that weren't easily met. I don't know how to get an official transcript for the Writing Program, and an Office Assistant position asked for a writing sample. I've never applied to something that wanted a writing sample, and I'm not sure what kind of sample/what kind of writing they're looking for. (I know it's certainly not slash though, guys! XD )

I should probably eat actual food for dinner, if I can find some. I had cereal for breakfast, gummy bears and free nan (which was also out, with a bunch of foreign-y foods on the quad) for lunch and... um. Have sort of been snacking on gummy bears for dinner. So healthy, I know. :P

ALSO: You would think in half a 16 by 20 foot dorm room I would not be able to lose Felix's cord. Especially you would think I couldn't loose the back up as well. Yet somehow, I have. :/

The following (under the cut) is the list of my favorite Supernatural Episodes that Will asked for.
It sounds made up, but it's not. )

The only reason I'm awake right now is because I went to bed 2.5 hours ago only to have increasingly creepy dreams. Normally I would get rid of them by reading, but I'm currently reading a book that has kind of dark undertones, and a different book about gendercide- involving sex slavery/trafficking, etc. Neither of which would really lighten the mood.

My subconscious is so weird. I knew when we watched the episode of Supernatural where the wishes from the wishing well turned bad and the girl's teddy bear turned into a mascot like "real" bear who was depressed and tried to commit suicide, that I would have nightmares about that. Yes. Of all the creepy things on that show, I knew the 'real bear' was going to get me. And it did, except there were loads of them and they were after me. This sounds way less terrifying on paper, but it also involved malfunctioning elevators and a swimming pool (I never have good dreams about pools) so believe me, it was scary.

There was a paragraph in the deconstructionist essay that talked about how fiction will never be read the same way by two people- never have the same impact or influence- in the same way that relating a dream to someone is not as accurate in conveying emotion or action as actually having the dream. It was actually fascinating but I'm not going to recount the other interesting/relevant bits.

Also fascinating is the summer reading assignment I've gotten. My freshman class is reading Half the Sky, by  Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. It's very interesting and moving. I like the even handed way they report the story of the ongoing oppression of women throughout the world. I'll probably tell you all more about it later. I think I'm going to go read some of SoT now. Night all.
I SURVIVED!

I wish I could say I survived uninjured as well, but I managed to slice open one of my fingers. Not badly, mind, but enough to bleed on a piece of cantaloupe. See, today's snack was fruit salad. We had just under two hours to cut up six cantaloupes, four pineapples, several bunches of bananas, and to pick grapes. My mother just had surgery on her elbow and can't use her dominant hand for much. *facepalm* It would have been a disaster, but we got three reinforcements forty-five minutes before the deadline. So we made it!

Of course, tomorrow we're just handing out moon pies. =p

In other news, I bought some roller blades and protective gear, so I'm gonna be out practicing and probably making a fool of myself. It's going to be awesome! I'm (obviously) very excited.

Also, in case anyone was wondering about my perhaps conspicuous absence- I may or may not be posting slavefic on this journal: [livejournal.com profile] conceivingaplot , So yeah. I'm not abandoning my works over here, I've just had my attention drawn elsewhere for a bit. ^^.

Unrelated: I need a supernatural icon.
