So, I'm still here? Hello. Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I am both busy and have recently started using pretty much solely my iPad for Internet and lj isn't exactly intuitive on here. The app really sucks. (Excuses, excuses...)

I want to start posting again, though. I miss you guys! So, a more extensive update later? Just wanted to let you know that I'm still on here and I'll try to go through my flist to see what you all have been up to soon.

I have just watched this BBC mini series based off of Jane Austen's Emma and it was glorious. A++ would recommend. It was very well acted. I wanted to smish everybody's faces. So adorable. Plus, Johnny Lee Miller from Elementary played the romantic lead so I already felt endeared to the character (who is very like Sherlock personality wise so I thought that was funny).

/random recommendation

We've been working on Northanger Abbey in my English class, so I'm in a bit of a Jane Austen mood. I think I'll try to finish Persuasion next.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

God, I can't believe it's 2013. Crazy.

I have my annual post of what I discovered in 2013 (tv shows and books and whatnot) to type up and post, so I should have that up within the next few days (hopefully). Tomorrow, I'm going to a family party and I start class on the day after, Wednesday.

I also watched Paranorman today. It was cute, but kind of sad.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

It's a little late in the day, but I spent most of my time since waking up at my grandmother's house and she doesn't have wifi. This Christmas I got some new clothes, the blueray of Firefly (which I'm watching right now), and an iPad that I am currently writing this on. I did not expect that last one at all.

Yesterday I went to an annual family party, watched over a dozen kids open presents in rapturous joy and uncontrolled chaos, and had multiple people try and ply me with alcohol because I don't really drink and they think this must be rectified.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable, if exhausting, holiday. Next Wednesday I start something called J term, where, at my new college, you can take one class in a month (January). I'm taking Women and Fiction. I've spent the past week reading the assigned books early because I'm weird like that and being vaguely disappointed that they're mostly contemporary fiction, a genre I don't read much of. Although there was one Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey). I'm curious how the class will go.

I hope you all had an amazing holiday season!

:D

So I found this website called Emergency Compliment - for those days when you really need a compliment - and this happened:

I laughed.

In other real life news, I'm coming up on the end of the semester. Mostly it's final projects and essays (I've got four papers to write). It went by so fast! I've even started signing up for next semester's classes. I'm going to take something called 'honors independent reading', a class I don't know much about. It has no set meeting time and we choose what kind of overall things to read (like feminist poetry or environmentalist non-fiction). I'm curious to see how it'll work. And if it'll even be compatible with my schedule.

I've also been reading a lot recently. That's for another post, thought, I think. Typing on my phone is getting tiring. Note to self: write a post about books and tv.

So, American's on my flist, did everybody vote?

It actually went surprisingly faster than I thought. During early voting there were long lines, but today I only had to wait behind one or two people.

Hi

So I'm still here. I haven't completely disappeared off the Internet. Sorry I haven't been around much recently. I started fall semester and it's swallowed me whole. I spend most of my non homework time doing things that require as little thought as possible to keep my brain from melting, like watching tv or tumblr. Plus, I'm mostly using my phone for interneting nowadays and I will never got the hang of this lj app.

Have a silly two minute doodle I did of animals because why not.

It's my birthday today!

Have a cookie!

I have eaten way too much cake and am now watching the olympics (which my phone wants to autocorrect to 'plinking' for some reason). It was a very lazy birthday, but a nice one overall.

So it's happened...

The Olympics have eaten my soul.

Or, some less disturbing phrase that gets across the fact that I've randomly been sucked into the Olympics. This is very weird for me, because I hate sports and I've never really cared about the games before, but I am weirdly invested this time.

I am currently watching the women's gymnastics final (well, right this very second it's swimming, but I'm mostly watching for the gymnastics tonight) and I've gotten super invested in the American team doing well. I know they do, I've been spoiled for the scores, but I am still so excited to actually see it. The fab five are super adorable and kickass and I'm so happy for them. And, just asdfghjkl;. I don't even know. I have all these feels and it's utterly baffling me.

Gymnastics is just such a gorgeous sport, and it's the only one I've ever done, so I don't know, I'm impressed by what being the very best looks like. I have ~kindred feels, I guess. Which, since I was never very good at it, is ridiculous, but whatever. I feel what I feel.

I like watching the Russian team preform, too, even if they kind of suck tonight. They apparently all have backgrounds in ballet and it shows in how ~dancey their routines are. And the fact that they're liberally covered in glitter is awesome. And their jackets look cool.

Also, since I mentioned swimming, I have to talk about how Micheal Phelps broke the medal record because it was awesome.

Although the one thing I really love about the swimming matches it how everyone is always hugging and congratulating their neighboring lanes afterward. It's hilarious and adorable. Everyone is such a good sport. It's something you don't really see in other sports.

I feel like this post is just random squeeing.

1. I went to a party on the 4th of July, and spent nearly all afternoon in the pool. As a result my arms were terribly sore the next day. I have not swum in ages. It was a fun afternoon, though. And there was some great food.

2. Super excited for Elementry in the fall. Although I was a little disapointed to find out that Lucy Lu was John, not Sherlock. She'd have been a kickass Sherlock Holmes.

3. I still have yet to see The Avengers, Spiderman, and Brave, although I want to.

4. I think I've made my final decision about the college I want to transfer to, although oh god is it expensive. :| Wish I had a better idea of what I wanted to go into... And I love my community college so it's a pity I can't get a bachlor's degree there. A part of me thinks I should just go back there and get an associate's in computer science. It'd be cheaper. But I do need a four-year degree. Blah.

5. The Women's Tennis Association is trying to ban grunting- in women's tennis only- and, despsite the fact that I am in no way involved in tennis at all, I've been filled with inarticulate rage over how blatently sexist that is. Women apparently have to enjoy the sport quietly and delicately, and are not permited to make ~vulgar ~unladylike noises. I want to punch someone in the face. D:

6. I think I'll go find something to read... I've been mainlining The Dresden Files. They're surprisingly good. And I think I've read more books in the past  two months than I have in the past two years. I've read a fuckload of fanfic, though.

And now I'm just rambling. It's too hot out (101 F). Blah.
