Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately. Includes both fandom and original characters.
WHY AM I DOING THIS. I don't even remember what characters I used to play aside from Axel and Acacia soooob.
... I think the main reason is to get people whose characters I like who haven't done this to see it and do it. SO DO IT.
so I said I would do a post. AND I WILL.
I signed up for classes! I actually signed up for classes a week before everyone else— I got into the Disabled Student Services program, hooray for the system working in my favor. I have to take ... 27 units (yes I know) for transfer reasons, and I honestly don't want to go into the whole thing right now because it'll stress me out, but suffice to say that is a lot of classes. The vast majority are easy-A online classes (lol "Introduction to Health") that I've cross-referenced on RateMyProfessor. I'm a little concerned about the two bio and art history classes, but I need them for transfer requirements, sooo what can you do.
I feel kind of awful right now, to be honest. I've been depressed for the last week or two, so I think I need to get my Lamictal upped. whiiich means a trip to the psychiatrist, which means another $110 charge! Or I could just take my usual one pill and then half of another, considering that's what he'd prescribe, anyway. I'm making myself miserable over tiny little things, and everything's spiraling into one big ... miserable spiral. of misery. I want to just fall asleep and not have to be awake and feel like this, which is usually the number one sign that, yep, it's the ol' bipolar acting up again.
misery misery misery. trying to think of things that don't make me unhappy. um.
... I really can't think of anything. wow. okay. uh—
OH RIGHT Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. oh my god guys golden sun. so. much. nostalgia. It's exactly like the first two, which means not particularly good but very pretty and decent gameplay and your party is basically GS1 2.0, except Jenna has blue hair and wind psynergy and Ivan's been replaced with an annoying little nerdball. I'm up to ... the underground city thing! I have no idea, I don't even read the text half the time (which I realize totally diminishes the appeal of Golden Sun) and I'm chilling with Piers's illegitimate son and waiting for Alex to show up again and be politely douchey.
OH AND ALSO: I sent my computer to be fixed about two months ago, and now they've finally told me they're, uh, not going to do it, but here have the $700 you spent on it in the first place! Any suggestions for new ones in the $700-$800 range? I'd prefer laptops that are at least decent for gaming.
HI WORLD. I've started about six entries over the last month and deleted them for being Too Boring. Because I am Too Boring. I saw How to Train Your Dragon and that is pretty much the most exciting thing that has happened to me ever. oh and Harry Potter was v. good.
But! It occurs to me! I was looking at Comic-Con thingamajigers and it occurred to me that some of you guys are going, too (if registration ever happens ...). I know it's, uh, about six months in advance, but is anyone thinking about it yet? And does anyone want to be hotel buddies ...
SO, UM. SUP, GUYS.
It's only been, uh ... oh man since the fucking festival? in February? I thought I posted before then A LITTLE WHILE.
- went to Boston for CUPSI (College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational) as part of the UC Santa Cruz team posse; they made first but because of stupid time penalties got second.
- started my second year of college! I'm taking Jewelry-making/Metalworking, Multicultural Voices* in Gay and Lesbian Literature, World Regional Geography, Intro to Astronomy, Poetry, and Critical Thinking in Social/Cultural Issues.
- helped out at the debut of the Oversocial Mofo Revue, the new San Jose poetry slam/variety show.
- yeah my life is pretty much slam and school
* They aren't really multicultural.
SO HOW ARE YOU GUYS? I love you all so truly and deeply, and yet not enough to read almost eight months worth of backlog :'(
