I did it!

So, I graduated.

It didn't feel real until today, though, when the degree came in the mail. Oh, the joy. The relief. I did it! No more juggling papers with food, sleep, or sanity and resembling a zombie for the sake of a by-the-skin-of-my-teeth passing grade. This last semester was definitely the hardest, but now I'm free. Free at last.

Only... now, it's on to the rat race. X)

But finally, I can catch up on fandom. I'm still in the process of getting up to date with everything but you can expect me to start posting regularly. I've got a lot of fic coming up and I can't wait to really dig in again.

On the horizon: a few XMFC, some Glee, a whole lot of HP, sinking my teeth into SPN (♥_♥ Cas!), and more...

Life has been kicking me in the teeth all summer year. I'll come back and edit this post to elaborate on how shitty life is, but for now I need to get some sleep.

The Gist:

Fuck You, fucking college.

Fuck You, the sea of responsibilities I'm drowning in.

Fuck You, corrupt or just deeply stupid politicians.


Also, fuck you, upcoming jury duty. Icing on a shit cake.

Well, we're halfway through finals week! Almost there! Though, I start Intersession immediately afterward. XD

I've updated my resume with my Associates Degree in International Business and I start looking for an internship next year. Good times.

I've put up a new layout at [livejournal.com profile] dracoships and I plan to get some activities going over there.

And I have the greatest sister ever! She gifted me with a paid account!!! WOOHOO! Thank you, Sarah. :D Everyone, check out my lil sis' awesomeness at [livejournal.com profile] insanityclings and her new General Hospital Jason/Sam community at [livejournal.com profile] yourquietsmile !

Also, see my pretty icon? :D

I made 39 Glee-related icons (Kurt, Chris, & Cast). Here's a few teasers...

On to the rest...

Well, this last week has been interesting and this one looks to be quite interesting too. In a fantastically mood-improving way, though. Hopefully.

Since last Tuesday: Classes/Papers/Hwk (Oh My!), car (Saturn VUE :D) started making a noise - transmission needs to be replaced ($$$/arm&leg - grr. argh.), sink would back up (spit up neighbor's leftovers DX whenever they used the disposal) - plumbers came and tore out half my kitchen (there was jack-hammering and cement dust's still over everything) ...and they lost our sink stopper (essential to dishwashing without a dishwasher :S) - but at least they restored our kitchen and the apartment manager even had our leaky faucet replaced, caught a head cold - seem to be recovering, ...oh yeah - and I saw The Last Airbender (needs better dialogue and personalities for the characters, otherwise awesome).

A lot happened. XD

This week: I saw House last night and I'm pleased at more Chase screentime. They've whet my appetite again. I want more! Also, Glee! GLEE SEASON PREMIERE TONIGHT! <3.<3 :D Yaaaaaaayyyy!

Wow. So much accomplished since the last post and yet there's still so much to get done. I'm a multi-tasker. I constantly push my limits and take risks with how much stuff I try to do at once. This is so overwhelming, but I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever stop. I would always petition to overload and take more than the maximum amount of units/classes for each semester. Except this one - I've cut back to the standard full time student status of four classes this semester. And what do I do? I start two communities. XD Keeping up with fandom (essential!), running three comms, going to class and doing all the homework that entails, and remembering to eat/sleep/use the restroom?! This isn't even half of my To Do List - that thing could fill a novel. Oh well, I'll just keep on keeping on. ;)

I've told you about [livejournal.com profile] kurtships, but I've also started the [livejournal.com profile] kurtbigbang (a fic/art challenge for fans of Kurt Hummel from Glee).

What should be coming in the mail any week now: my AA Degree in Liberal Arts and my AA Degree in International Business. :D
I'm now working on my BA Degree in European Studies (Business, Communication, and Economics in Europe) at CSUF.

Also, remember that Jasam event I mentioned in the last post? Well, now I'm in the latest ABC Soaps in Depth magazine! A professional photographer pulled me aside for a group picture with the actors at the event and it made it into the magazine. O_O So surreal. My family just bought some keepsake copies. *^_^*

Note to [livejournal.com profile] the_dicethrower : ~pokes you back~ I will catch up! And I will comment! How, you ask? Well, "I have many skills." \o/ *does Xena yell* Also... on the subject of ~bouncing~...
At first I was like: To bounce or not to bounce?

But then I was like: Oh yeah! I'm ~bouncing~!

This past Saturday, I attended a Jasam fan event with my sister in Los Angeles. That's a Q&A and photos with Steve Burton (who plays Jason Morgan) and Kelly Monaco (who plays Sam McCall) of the soap opera General Hospital. It was fun. ...They're so much shorter in real life. :D

Mini-Rant: Politics = Depressing. Politics will suck the idealism out of anyone. The reality of the amount of control the greedy top 10% have over the rest of us just never lets up, does it?

Lemon Raspberry Meringue Pie from Fresh&Easy is yummy. Seriously!

Grr. Argh. Summer classes before transferring to the CSU. So tedious.

Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on Glee, always cheers me up. He's so hilarious and awesome in all of his interviews.

So, I created a Kurt Hummel shippers fan community - [livejournal.com profile] kurtships!


Here's something to turn all you not-yet-Chris-Colfer-fans into fans:

Awesome Chris Colfer Interview on Jimmy Fallon - HERE
Chris Shows His Sai Sword Skills - HERE
Kurt Does Single Ladies - HERE
Kurt Duets with Mercedes on 4 Minutes (video's reversed/flipped, though) - HERE

He deserves the Emmy!!! The above doesn't even include the drama.

If you're not already watching this show, give it a chance. <3

So... Hi.

Heh. I've been busy. I'm trying to make some headway in my education. It's hard, though, with budget cuts. They are canceling intersessions and not offering as many classes each semester - which sucks because it stretches out how long it will take me to reach my goals.

My goals may be a little ambitious, though. I plan to finish my General Ed, earn an Associates Degree in International Business, earn an Associates Degree in Modern Languages, and complete as much Major Prep as I can before I transfer to CSUF where I hope to double major in European Studies and International Business.

I don't know. Is that too ambitious? You tell me.
