So I guess my alarm clock went off and someone turned it off without waking me up again, because it's half an hour before auditions and there's no chance I can get there and park before they start.

Well. Okay then.
Poll #1516779 SUPER IMPORTANT POLL OF IMPORTANT

What song should I do for my Chamber Singers audition tomorrow?

"All That Jazz" - Chicago
2(18.2%)
"Defying Gravity" - Wicked
0(0.0%)
"Jack's Lament" - The Nightmare Before Christmas
1(9.1%)
"Maybe This Time" - Caberet
2(18.2%)
... "Under the Sea" - The Little Mermaid
1(9.1%)
obligatory ticky box for you selfish bastards.
0(0.0%)


Keep in mind I'm a first soprano, so most of these would get knocked up an octave or two. "Defying Gravity" is prooobably the best choice, but a) I'm worried it's overused, and b) it's been done a lot, and a lot better, so there's more unfavorable comparison. "Maybe This Time" would be good, but it's lower than I usually sing and I don't want to get sorted into the altos.

... And I can't sing "Under the Sea" without a Jamaican accent.

It seems like every entry lately's had a meme, but sdjgnaaagh so tired/busy.

First class (American Ethnic Cultures in Film) is tonight. Fun!

I'm writing up my resume! It's ... really bloody surreal, that's what it is, but it's also less empty than I thought it'd be. There's an part-time slot at the local Planned Parenthood I want like hell, and it's the first job I've considered that doesn't just hand out applications. Like I said, surreal.

I'm also getting the list of numbers for psychologists/psychiatrists from Mom and calling them myself. It's kind of the only way it'll get done, I think. I've been unmedicated for the last month or so, and while I haven't hit any lows, I'm aware it's like playing Russian roulette with a bullet in every other chamber, and I think I can feel one coming on. So. Science!

... My mind is just not on the right level for writing an eljay post right now, I think. I just feel ... really not okay, and I feel bad about feeling not okay, and for apparently being okay with talking about not being okay. sigh. maaaybe that low's closer than I thought.

BUT. HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL. Unless it doesn't.

:D
HELLO NEW FRIENDING MEME FRIENDS

(this is very, very late)

Iiii'm Jaz! Jazzy. Jazzyjaz. I did a meme a few weeks ago that has more information than anyone could possibly want. I haven't really been involved in fandom in a while, so my posts have been super hyper crazy boring lately. I've been getting into VDex Project (PLUG PLUG PLUG), though, and apocalypticae is starting soon, so there should be some vaguely interesting posts!

... hopefully ...

... WAIT, you say, WHAT WAS THAT LAST ONE?

I'm glad you asked.

apocalypticae is an OC (!!!) RP in the style of worldresolution/resolutionremix — aka in the style of X1999. It's most definitely going expected to be dark, with adult themes, like murder and crucifixion* and death and removal of eyes* and someone's getting impaled on the Space Needle. There's about a 50/50 chance any given character will die (unless you're lame not okay with yours dying, of course, in which case they can always go to another city where they have a 50/50 chance of dying), and it's going to be TOTALLY AWESOME.

Apps for kamui/gemini positions close START GETTING REVIEWED, uh, tomorrow. Don't know what those are? GO CHECK OUT THE OOC COMM.

* Guys, it's based on a CLAMP manga.

... SO I SLEPT THROUGH BEING AIM SERENADED BY NOT ONE, BUT TWO PEOPLE. And then one of those people over the course of the next eleven hours.

I set my alarm! ... whiiiich my dad came in and turned off and didn't wake me up. Thanks, Dad.

IN CONCLUSION:

:(

take her in your arms like cyanide

lapras.sushi: Jasmine....what if they KNOW we are in the house?
aubrecia: carolers are fearsome once they catch sight of their prey, but they are notoriously unintelligent and easy to fool
lapras.sushi: So we should get the bats ready?
Of the baseball persuasion
aubrecia: it's all good, i've got the vats of boiling oil waiting above the door
lapras.sushi: They'll never know what hit them XD
Especially when in their blindness I hit them with a baseball bat

The holidays bring families together.

So I got grades back!
  • Introduction to Ethics
  • - A. I REALLY WANT TO BRAG ABOUT HOW I DID IN THIS CLASS. 93% on the midterm, >90% on the final, full marks on every assignment I turned in (and I only missed one, I think, which is a huge thing for me), and full marks on the paper that was, essentially, a third of my grade. School has only made me feel stressed and just generally bad about myself since I started public school, and this (and the speech competition last year) are the only things that have really made me feel proud of myself. Which is sad, but whatever.
  • World Mythology
  • - B. I expected a bit better, but I think I just got a high B — my school doesn't do the whole plus/minus thing. I skipped about a fourth of the classes and did approximately 0% of the reading, so it isn't too shocking.
  • Math for Liberal Arts
  • - B. WHAT THE HELL. I was totally convinced I was going to scrape by with a very very very low C, and was praying I did well enough in the final to pass. But I got a B! And now I never have to take another math class again, ever. Ever. Ever.

This means my GPA is 3.33, which is the best it's ever been definitely on track. I'm still set on UC Berkeley, but now I've got a second choice, UC Santa Cruz. Which is good, considering my previous backup plan was UC Jump Off a Bridge.

I've signed up for next semester's classes, which are: Introduction to Politics, Comparative Religions (retaking with a better teacher), Freshman English, and American Ethnic Cultures in Film. I'm also taking Human Sexuality and Introduction to Psychology online. Y-yeah, a lot compared to this one. But I proved to my parents I'm doing fine in college, and I do best when I'm kept very busy.

Oh, also! I've signed up for Chamber Singers. My old choir teacher kind of bummed me out regarding choir for a while, but I've started really missing it. I've got to pick a song to audition with — I'm thinking 'Eric's Song' or Glee's version of 'Maybe This Time.' WE'LL SEE.

My carefully-planned schedule means I have Wednesday nights free for slam still, and I'll be skipping a few Tuesday classes to go down to the Santa Cruz slam more. It's ... weird, to almost feel like I fit in somewhere? I've never felt like that anywhere, but the poetry community's starting to feel like that. It's really nice.

LONG POST IS LONG and doesn't even address Christmas. The holidays are generally very depressing for me, though, and this year's not really any different, and everything else about this post is all optimistic and cheerful. So fuck that ♥
Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Sunday I turned offensive in for eating carbs (3 points). Last Tuesday I caught a purse-snatcher who stole angeling's purse (30 points). In September I stole korrigan's purse (-30 points). In April I committed genocide... Sorry about that, temperamental (-5000 points). In April I set furious's puppy on fire (-66 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-5063 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!

Sincerely,
warwolves
