So I literally have nothing to do until the new year. Blah. Either tomorrow or Sunday (which is Tom's birthday!) I'm going home to visit my parents. My mom's been pretty sick lately, and really weak, so I'm at least glad that I'll be there to help her out.
Like I've said before, I'm in a really shitty place in my life, but I'm trying to veer away from posting about a lot of really personal stuff here because I don't want to bore you guys, especially the ones of you here for only fandom and none of my ~hannah-nonsense~ (of which, I assure you, there is plenty) so I'm. Just not gonna rant! I might post about it in velocity_raptor
which is supposed
to be a personal-type journal thing, but I always forget about it and never use it. Maybe I'll fix that.+
THOUGH SPEAKING OF FANDOM. I feel like I've been talking about Supernatural way too much lately - Lizzie Bennet Diaries, too, though as far as that goes CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP. But that's mostly because for the first time I have a RL friend to watch it with! I got my friend Jennie into it, and now that season 8 is airing I CAN FLAIL TO HER ABOUT ALL THE THINGS. Funnily enough, I've also started re-watching the whole rest of the series with Tom, though it's his first time to see it. We just finished season one last night, and he was so pissed about the ending. He's seen an episode or two before, and all he's said about whether he likes the show or not is "When will I see Crowley?" so you can see he obviously takes his consumption of media very seriously. Ha, he got really frustrated with me last night because I kept wanting to talk about the show, and I was trying to tell him why I like Dean, and his character arc in the show, but I don't think he was really listening. Sigh.
Is there like an SPN friending meme going on anywhere? I have some really lovely mutual follows on tumblr who like SPN, but not so much on LJ, and I feel somewhat more comfortable talking and flailing here. My tumblr's basically just a place for me to keep pretty pictures and neat things, and though I feel like it is mine
and I'm very, very grateful for all the lovely people I've met there, this journal, that I've had since like 2005 (OH ME OH MY), is somewhere I feel more like myself. Dude, I know, makes like no sense, but for my mental health, environment/healthy spaces ARE SUPER IMPORTANT TO ME.+
I FOUND A LOVELY NEW SONG!
How I heard this is actually kind of funny. It was in the - I think latest? - "How I Met Your Mother" episode, playing at the end. AND THE EPISODE! JFJSKLJFDDSJ;FLKDSJ;LFK Okay, so I lost interest around season 3 or 4, really, but I couldn't help getting kind of excited about what happened. ( under a cut for ep spoilers in case anyone caresCollapse )
ANYWAY THE SONG IS FANTASTIC YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO IT. Yes, good. ALSO SPEAKING OF MUSIC ALWAYS FEEL FREE TO SHARE AWESOME SONGS WITH ME. AHHH! BRILLIANT IDEA
. I'm going to change the sticky!post I have with stamps and stuff INTO A MUSIC POST. SO PEOPLE CAN ALWAYS GIVE ME SONGS, OHOHO I AM GREEDY AND I FEEL NO SHAME. Also so I can share cool music with you guys! Next to writing, I think, music is the most important thing in the world to me.+
Is there any sort of etiquette for Yuletide treats? I have several I want to write, but... I mean, since everyone gets a gift it's not like anything I write will be their only
fic, but. I don't know, should I post something since it's a rare fandom and any fic would probably be appreciated even if it isn't polished, or should I wait until I can edit and refine and only post it if it's like some of my best work? I DON'T KNOW. I don't want to give anyone a sucky fic, but I do want to share some fun, ficcy love. Ugh ugh ugh, I'm probably overthinking this.+
I think I'll head over to comment_fic
and see if any prompts catch my eye.
