the year in review meme - post the first line from the first entry of each month.

January
So wow, the whole going home and sleeping thing?
the fall out from Ellie's new year's party, messing up my exams, breaking up with my boyfriend. also, high winds caused an exam to evacuated, which I find hilarious. [scaffolding was falling onto the building apparently.]

February
im on ur frends page, stalkin u.
I posted memes. also, got into bandslash and was never quite the same again. changed my user name. also, I think this was the time I began talking to [livejournal.com profile] eleclya_m more again, and added her to lj. *squish*

March
Yesterday's moment of looking like a complete spaz [bar the being unable to open doors and find my way around buildings, but that's all normal] - going to the library and checking 4 somewhat trashy teen novels.
I read an awful lot of books. met [livejournal.com profile] boonehwabbit and began going to mujs more! this was the month when I got told there was a real possibility of me being bumped down a level on my degree, from four years to three. this wasn't happy making.' the Leeds and Reading line ups were released, and I died a little inside.

April
Monday was a fantastic day.
spent some time hanging around in parks with a pretty awesome girl. had a minor crisis about my lack of faith and it being Easter. I got Reading tickets and Pokemon Diamond! my ongoing 'something' with a friend of mine got weirder, with me eventually backing off. spent an awesome day in London with some awesome people. invited myself to a birthday party and came out of it with a crush and some new friends.

May
That was, um, potentially rather stupid.
I told someone I liked them, received a somewhat non-committal answer and spent the rest of the month spazzing out about it. my computer died a horrible, horrible death. term finished and exams began. as generally goes with exam times, I brought a load of cds and pens.

June
Three down, one to go! It went... okay?
exams finished, noodles were eaten, partying was done. someone said 'wow, you have friends now.' I moved back home for the summer and turned 20. people thought I was 18.

July
I seem to keep doing this - ending up coming home from things a day early.
went back up to Manchester for a day, expressed my desire to life with Sophie a lot. had long talks until 5am. [the friend mentioned above gets weirder.] this summer, I spent a lot of time watching dvds, ironing and walking puppies. that's like, the whole of this month. also, emoting over Lord of the Rings, saddest film in the world, y/n? I get my exam results, and all is okay for another year!

August
so it turns out, I am being paid for ironing in mychem tickets.
I did a lot of ironing and puppy sitting this summer. also, Tokonatsu, Amecon and Reading, three events of sheer awesome. people guess that I'm 17.

September
I really don't understand this, lately I just feel really happy.
I move back up to Manchester, see all my friends again and watch porn. ¦3 I met a guy and post the first of many flailing entries about him. I also begin spending a lot of time on Katie et al's sofa. I also spend £50 on gig tickets in my first week back.

October
quick heads up to all who live relatively near me
I post lots of pseudo cryptic entries. Sophie ends up telling the guy I like him. I am hideously embarrassed. more time is spent on the sofa.

November
world domination - who doesn't want world domination!
I see two gigs on two consecutive evenings and get into uni for 9am the morning after to do coursework. I'm awesome. I get a boyfriend. [all that flailing paid off eventually.] I almost get hit by a bus, but have an awesome day anyway. conversations in lyrics are had via text.

December
drunked livejournal posts are always the win.
moreorless a constant blur of 'oh shit, deadlines.' saw Hellogoodbye for the second time. then I moved back home for the holidays. ahaha, that's about it?

so, 2008. I have a fair few things to look forward to.
- new Panic album! aha, yes, I'm sad. but I'm also slowly getting a group of people to go see them live with me.
- Amecon and Auchinawa!
- HOUSE. oh god, you have no idea how much I'm looking forward to living with Katie, Sophie, Jade and Chloe. ♥

I need to make a list of who I have actually seen live this year.

[you think you're saying something relevant as you connect the dots.]

it's costing me a grand total of £8 to get home. instead of £19.10. admittedly, part of that involves my parents dropping me off at Stafford at 8.30pm. and plus, I got my tickets to Sheffield for £6.50.
obviously, trains are awesome.

ALTHOUGH some retard decided to book the wrong date for the return journey. but it costs £5 to change the ticket [plus what I already spent] and £2.50 to buy a new ticket... do the maths.

and I get a Tegan tomorrow/today possibly. and oh my god, a Nik in January. a rare occasion.
as time goes by, I think we're better - healthier? - friends. I love him to pieces and though he annoys and exasperates me - it's nothing like it was. I don't need him to talk to me. it's nice when he does.
and plus, I hear his girlfriend is fucking awesome. ♥ for Neko!

-

I'm back in a good mood. god, this thing never makes sense. but my friends are fucking awesome. never believe anything different.
they played good cop bad cop on the way home, and said something I needed to hear.

courting in the form of kicking each other's ass at Soul Calibre 3. whatever works for you.

-

cause it's all been done and its all been said
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get


sometimes I find it a little amazing, my ability to bounce back. a couple hours ago, I was feeling close to tears, close to being sick, had a splitting headache. and now I just feel... hyper? and nothing has really changed. but it doesn't matter. I'll carry on. [and though you're dead and gone, believe me-]
this keeps happening. I'll be really upset and then suddenly - all gone. I don't think I mind.

I walked back half of the way on my own, and to be honest, I needed that. just to be alone for a little.

interest meme from [livejournal.com profile] the_sell_out

world domination
who doesn't want world domination! [I had a conversation about this the other day - it would be nice to delegate things.]
touchy boylove
see: Panic! at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, Fall out Boy.
death kitty
a fairly emo range of clothes. with cat ears on. I've got one of their jackets which has a hood with cat ears on [which amuses drunk people] and I adore it.
expect the unexpected
back, a long long time ago when I used to watch Cardcaptors [so a little while before I began this journal], one of the characters would always be 'expect the unexpected!' but... wouldn't that make it the expected?
squirrels
some people [mainly my dad] are all 'yeah, squirrels are just rats with good pr', but honest to good, I think they're adorable. on holiday one year in Canada, we kept seeing this little black squirrels everywhere in the middle of a city. it was rather cute.
ninja pirates
the only solution to the never ending war between ninjas and pirates. you have to admit, they'd be pretty fucking awesome.
binary
I deal with binary a lot on my course - binary addition, logic, that kind of thing. and I don't know, I kind of like it. proof that I do like my course? maybe.

I woke up! coffee is my friend, yo. [people don't let me have coffee normally.]
me and John went Halloween costume shopping - or at least, he brought all of his costume bar a wig, I went 'fuck it' and brought eyeliner. I also had a java chip peppermint frappuccino [did you know I have to google this every fucking time?] that was just what I needed. also, Starbucks makes me think 'you smell of Christmas, Jon.'
[from thursday. I procrastinate on lj.]

-

in other news, I totally have a crush on Lyn-Z from MSI. she has a really cute smile! [and is really bendy. really. bendy.]
wriggly wriggly joy.

and Pete Wentz, I think you're kind of hysterically amazing. you dressed up as Ryan Ross for Halloween.

-

you know there's always one person in a flat who plays really loud music? I think that's me.

-

I woke up and my hair was pink.
[seriously, there's a story behind this! back in my first year, I dyed my hair pink randomly one weekend, and when it got around to my tutorial, midway through, my tutor turned to me and was 'your hair wasn't that colour last week!' seriously, just in the middle of the session. we were talking about it on the train to expo, and the 'I WOKE UP AND MY HAIR WAS PINK' was coined. it got us some weird looks.]
but yeah. I woke up and my hair [and the walls and my face and my shoulder] was pink. Pete Wentz bangs. but in pink.

but I've talked to Sophie, who says I should dye all of it pink/red. it would match. I'm wearing black trousers, a red long sleeved top, a Nightmare Before Christmas t-shirt [black], red and black gloves, red and pink converse and a black cadet hat. oh god, i adore this hat. I've always wanted one, but they look retarded because my head is too big. now I have one.

we saw the most awesome t-shirt ever. robots in disguise.

same story, different chapter. I stayed over at the house of fangirls again. me, Katie, Sophie and Max went to watch Ratatouille - which was hilarious in itself, as well as the comments we kept making - and the dropping of the popcorn!
we had pizza, watched Top Gear, just chilled in general. watched the insane gerbil run into things. made Katie watch a few Panic videos - the 'you smell so slutty right now' dvd clip and the fanvid where Brendon has no concept of personal space, and would like to remind everyone that hey - he has a crotch!
me and Katie watched Garden State and the first two episodes of Black Books, and I wonder why I've never watched it before.

I am getting emails off Facebook from the start of the month. this shit is getting annoying.

The first five people to comment on this post get to request a ficlet from you. In return, they have to post this meme in their journal. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for.

bandom, doctor who, various anime [ccs, fruits basket, digimon, one piece at a stretch]. um, suggest it, and I'll shoot you down.

I'm also just in general uninspired. I have my [livejournal.com profile] nightmare_xmas assignment, I have an idea, I have how it should start- but I get stuck there.

I keep wanting to have my mood as accomplished. I love those dork faces. however, lazy will do too.

I'm trying to plan out my trip to Sheffield - it all hinges on me getting the last tram to the station - which leaves at 11.15pm. however, there's still a two hour wait in the station, unless by some freak chance I can get there by 10.30. that ain't gonna happen. it's the waiting in the station that I'm scared about. however, I will get to see My Chemical Romance and Mindless Self Indulgence. oh man, you wish you were me. or not.
it's the morning after that's gonna kill me. two concerts in a row, and I won't be getting in until 3am - and a 9am start. I just thank god I live so close to the station. [why couldn't you have just come to Manchester? then I'd have had people to go with D¦ I don't mind the going alone so much, but there's a big difference between the Academy and Sheffield. *takes a kitten* *shotget*]

in other fannish news, Brand New's Untitled 7 is released on iTunes tomorrow! however, I dislike iTunes, so anyone know how to unlock the coding? aha. I'm going to buy it, I still have that free code I got for drinking too much coke.

something hilariously awful happened today. I have this thing with my jeans - the hem at the bottom tends to wear away and go all ratty. and on one leg, there's a fairly long strip of material that's still attatched, but just gets in the way. I was crossing the road after I'd been shopping, and being partially distracted by my phone, stepped on the end of my jeans, tripped myself up, and completely wiped out. thank god I was not actually in the road at this point, but on the little bit of pavement in between the lanes. the guy crossing the road from the other side was all 'D: sorry!' although, I had no idea what he thought he'd done.
poor lettuce and pizza box, you broke my fall. for great justice.

I seriously need to go along to the doctors. [and register for one that I'm actually in the right area for!] someone remind me or something.

-

I keep saying about how the world is too small. one of my flatmates [and his friend, but that's a whole different story, aha] is on the same course as [livejournal.com profile] dogmop. which is kind of coincidental. turns out, Alan also was actually in a group last year with [livejournal.com profile] madmailbu, who I have known on and off, since reception. seriously, it's the freakiest thing, especially considering how much of a random coincidence we got in touch again in the first place.

Online journals are little filters that we each see every one else's lives through, the parts others choose to share with us. That said, we all think we are close, but really we seldom know *a lot* about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

today, I wasted three hours. by going to the open day for a course I'm not even doing. I got a kitkat out of the deal.

also, huh, how about that. semis.
...I don't even like rugby.

I have to be up again in about 3 hours. urgh. getting Pico back [sans working dvd drive, but I have two computer science students who have offered their services. oh yeah, I went there.]

The party was... interesting. same story as 42s - didn't eat enough in the day, so got rather drunk. ran out of mixers so ended up drinking vodka almost straight. Sophie added cider. which I hate.
had some good conversations, especially ones about Disney, lectures and violence - even if we did almost get run over. oh, some days I'd just like to read more into it.
we also talked about cat macros and /b.
mikeyway clone was there. ironically, called mike.

I'm not quite sure to do with myself, any suggestions? take a risk, play it cool, go to sleep? choices, choices.

10 things that make me happy:

10. watching house obsessively.
09. drinking tea.
08. post it notes.
07. fencing.
06. silly applications on facebook.

04. electropop with silly lyrics. can't help smiling.
03. boys in bands.
02. my friends. ♥
01. brand new. oh my god. in love with them, like, times ten.

if there are ten things that make you happy, tell your flist right now!

I realised today I've been blogging since I was 14. since I was in year nine. while the older of my two journals has now been deleted, it scares me a little. oh, the melodrama of a 15 year old. things were such srs bsns back then. god, how did people ever put up with me, ahaha. [oh, becky, oh, jordan, you guys are truely awesome, you know that?]
some people say they could never put thoughts and personal things on the web, but it's almost like a coping mechanism now.
although one of these days, I need to erase all the places I've put my full name. aha.

it's also funny when I'm so happy someone has heard a band I really like, until I realise they've only heard of them because I made a somewhat hyper post about seeing them live.

-

sometimes, I feel like if I expect less from people, I won't get let down. like I keep expecting people to flake out on me. [in truth, i am the flaker-out of late.] it's honest to god, nothing personal. case in point, Brand New signing. the girl I was talking to in the queue said she'd send me the photos. maybe she forgot my email, maybe she forgot in general. who knows.
keep surprising me. keep raising my expectations. I can put myself back together, just take a chance.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

1. annoying the greywing
where me and my friends used to hang out at weekends, one of my friends works at a webcafe, and if there was nothing else to do, we'd go and bug him in there.

2. green fireflies
this is one of my ridiculous injokes with myself. I actually have no idea why it was green fireflies, but it was something to do with a truck reversing and having one of those automated warnings. the type that go ''this is truck is reversing.' it was fairly early one morning when this happened on the way to school, and my brain is pretty much always on crack.

3. not emo
well, it's the whole Panic/Fall out Boy/MCR being labelled as emo, when in fact, they make me rather happy. plus, I totally stole it from [livejournal.com profile] weemo_closet.

4. plushie zombies
I'm not quite sure as the actual origin of this, I have a feeling it's another injoke with myself. the theory that zombies would be far cuter if they were little stuffed toys. and were filled with glitter.

5. the goatlord
The Goatlord is a person. unfortunately, I wasn't there when he was elected [made?] Goatlord, but is the leader of our mini cult at an anime convention. positions in the cult include Bride of Goatlord [normally a boy], various henchmen and a jester. we generally only see him once a year though, which sucks, cause he's a pretty awesome guy.

6. ninja steve
I'm amused at the irony of this being picked, for today is yesterday was ninja steve's birthday. he's a guy from scotland who draws a fair bit, has a wooden sword and apparently, is a really lame ninja. also, he's a little famous in the uk anime scene [or at least, the ones I hang around with.] there's even a guy who wants to cosplay him. and apparently, everyone works for ninja steve.

7. ben and jerrys icecream
back when ben and jerry's ice cream was virtually unknown over here, my family went on a trip to Vermont, and we went to a pretty awesome icecream factory. my favourite flavour has, and probably always will be, phish food. however, their hot fudge sundaes are to die for.

Reply to this post, and I will write one thing I love about you. Maybe more than one. Then (if you want) repost to your own journal and spread the love.

interview from [livejournal.com profile] kazz_chan:
1. Cake or Candy!?
Candy. makes me hyperer.

2. What is your favourite song and why?
right now, Brand New - Sowing Season. it starts off quite slow, but halfway through, the guitars really kick in, and it's kind of electrifying. plus. it was fantastic live.

3. What anime makes you want to rip your eyes out/ears off when you watch it?
hmmm. yu-gi-oh. aha.

4. Is there something you secretly fangirl/obsess over?
...bandslash isn't that secret. but that's the main thing I fangirl over nowadays.

5. Is there a talent you wish you had and why?
I would like to be super flexible. and not because it sounds kinky. I don't know, it would just be cool. I could never do cartwheels or handstands as a kid. [I still can't.]

-

interview from [livejournal.com profile] hiccu_pop:
1. What do you love about music?
I'm going to be incredibly geeky and use a lyric to answer this. 'I could write it better than you ever felt it.'

playing an instrument. or ddr.

3. Whats your favourite thing about anime conventions?
friends! dancing with glowsticks and taking cracked out photos.

-

interview from [livejournal.com profile] tenatzen:
1. Who's your least favourite person to be around?

2. If you had infinite money, what would you do?
Buy a new computer, goes clothes shopping. Buy a sidekick. end up buying loads of gadgets. buy all those tshirts I keep finding online. buy a new wallet.

3. Think it would change you?
I want to say no, but I know it would. I mean, I'd still try and get a job and everythinbg, but people tend to think I'm kind of spoilt as it is. :P

4. How long is Ninja Steve's left arm?
too long.

5. what's your greatest goal in life?
to be happy. or to look at my life and think 'I like who I am, what I am doing and who I am around.'

-

all I hear is 'when it gets dark, in Pritchatts Park'. because um, aha, that's where my dearest Ellie lived last year.
the real line is 'in pigeon park' which amuses me even more! [pigeon park is a cemetry in the middle of the city. emos go hang there. I'm not kidding.]

I got into fanfiction before blogging, and one day, someone commented on my fic, and when I looked at their profile, they had a link to deadjournal. what a marvelous thing this is, said little 14 year old me. so I toddled over and made an account. the person I was semi-stalking moved to lj, which made me sad face, since lj had codes at this point. however, this lovely girlie gave me an code. but somewhere in my time on dj, I ran into this crazy girl who posted quizzes and Gravitation pic spams. I have no idea who that was. [so yeah, it's sort of your fault! *squish* also, I saw this question and totally began watchign Wolf's Rain again, aha.]

2. What was your super bestest score on DDR / favouritest song to play?
I've gotten a AA on Jam Jam Reggae on Difficult before, although the hardest song I've passed is either Era or My Summer Love on Expert. So my favourites would be those probably, although there's a few others I play for kicks, like Breakdown, Love Love Shine and Candy♥

3. What do you take on your hamburgers? (I am hungry D:)
Normally just cheese, I am boring. or whatever comes on a big mac or whopper, I am sheep. although, onion rings on the side are always winners.

4. If you had the money to invent or build anything, what would it be?
ummmm ahaha no idea. a really cool house? 8D With like, a fish pond. with koi carp. and a really nice big bed. I love my bed. and a balcony!

5. Look around your room; what's the first book you spot?
The Lord of The Rings trilogy and my Cardcaptor Sakura manga boxsets are like, right by my pc.

[take my advice, cause we are bad news.]

song title meme )

band meme )

-

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.
1. Brand New - Failure By Design - because everyone loves angsty pop punk. [this is a lesson in procrastination / I kill myself because I'm so frustrated / and every single second that I put it off / means another lonely night I got to race the clock]
2. Elliot Minor - Parallel World - um, I seriously didn't want to like this! it's kind of cheesy, yet... somehow addictive. [I’m stuck in parallel worlds / or something supernatural / it won't let me go]
3. The Sounds - 24 Hours - so the lyrics I chose are actually super cheesy but this band makes me so happy. really dancy and just awesome. [oh / you said it was love for the first time / oh, baby, baby be mine / cause I'm in love, in love, in love, in love with you]
4. Fall Out Boy - Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued - this song is the ultimate in long and pointless songnames! what more justification do I need, apart from it makes me want to dance? [it's just past eight and I'm feeling young and reckless / the ribbon on my wrist says / 'do not open before christmas']
5. Death Cab For Cutie - Marching Bands of Manhattan [sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole / just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound / but while you debate half empty or half full / it slowly rises, your love is gonna drown. ]
6. John Mayer - Slow Dancing In a Burning Room [can't seem to hold you like I want to / so I can feel you in my arms / nobody's gonna come and save you / we pulled too many false alarms]
7. My Chemical Romance - Early Sunsets Over Monroeville - happy song about people being in love and happy together! and then VAMPIRES! I really can't help but laugh. oh, it's srs bsns. [not knowing you'd change from just one bite / I fought them all off just to hold you close and tight.]

there are some things that people don't want to talk about. and you know, I'd've thought when asking 'why?' if the reply was 'because', it would kind of imply they don't really want to talk about it. huh. but what do I know?

I went out for a ride on Banner, and it's kind of all good, because it's one of the few times I can talk to my mother without her bringing up the thing about jobs and the summer. and as well, I love that horse to bits and pieces.

I'm thinking of what to spend my birthday gift voucher on. I'm torn between an iTunes gift voucher or selling it to my mother. huh, she still owes me for those chocolates she ate. also, I kind of really want the Sounds album and perhaps the special edition of From Under The Cork Tree. But that can wait until September. I don't know if my lj account can wait until then. I'm kind of addicited to this thing, huh. I do kind of need new jeans a little more urgently.

I'm getting around to replying to comments. srsly.

[falling apart to songs about hips and hearts.]

Three down, one to go! It went... okay?

After, ended up hanging around with Jonny, John, Mark and Commodore in the union and then back to John and Mark's for a bit for gaming. Two people on the PS3, 2 on the 360, s'all good. Seriously, ended up being a right laugh. Commodore has no shame and almost gave himself whiplash staring after girls, especially considering his 'technically-sort-of-maybe-possible' girlfriend. Also, he jumped on Jonny's back when we were walking up Oxford Road, and Jonny like... threw him over his shoulder. Like you see in some martial arts.
Many funny things.

It's also way too hot at the moment. well obviously not now, but today has been too warm. Considering I spent most of it hiding inside the union.

When did summer get here, guys?

So if you wake up one morning and it's a particularly beautiful day, you'll know we made it.
The quote is from Sunshine [which I babbled about yesterday] and I have to say, I really like this line. It actually made me cry a little at the end.
But you know, I cry super easy in films. I cried a little in Spiderman. Betcha didn't know that.

I was being all 'yeah, gonna be super healthy' and was eating some melon. However, it was actually kind of disgusting, so I had poptarts. Which the toaster didn't eat. :D
However, this means I'm actually rather giggly. If I can turn the giggly into interest in Communication Principles [fucking Fourier Transforms] then it's all good.

I still have no idea what I want for my birthday. It's a toss up between a DS lite and an external harddrive, because it looks like I'm gonna shell out for a permanent account on my own. Because I'm an lj whore.

I also realised how much I talk sometimes. In fact, a lot of the time, conversations involve me talking nonstop. And people never tell me to shut up. Er, oops, haha.

I'm spending a lot of time chewing things. Like those tag things on clothes. Not really tasty, but oh well. I should really cut down my nervous habits, especially since I've started biting my nails again.

When my fringe is straightned/brushed forward, it kind of goes in my eyes. But it's not quite an emo fringe.

Also I changed my layout. :x I was getting a bit bored of the dj. So evil oranges!

[I still have intense not so internal dilemmas. oh, let me tell you internet, I like making life difficult.]

I may as well conclude a list of random statements with a meme. Comment, and I'll tell you why I love you. Or like you. Whatever. ♥

[Let me be honest, let me be the one to shake you home.]

It's really great knowing I don't have to be in the labs for 9. So half the time I turned up at 10 anyway, shut up. What's not great is looming exams.

However, my birthday is just over a month away, how did that happen? I'm totally not sure what I'm doing - I mean, I plan to do something in Manchester after the exams, but as for my actual birthday... I might do something at the weekend for more people, but anyone want to come just hang around with me? I'll chase after people later anyway.

Me and Keith ended up going shopping [yep, I make him go make up shopping with me. I attack him with the glitter blushers.] and they had gifts if you spent over a fiver. It's a little make up bag with faries and flowers on it [but is still possibly kind of ugly] but it had eyeshadow and nail polish. Um, not that I really wear nail polish. But it's shiny nail polish.
I'm just a whore for anything pretty and sparkly, it's true.
Also, it's cool to hang out with Keith, for we make far better friends. And I get to sound all pretentious and shit while actually helping.

I'm going to be awol pretty much all weekend - going to the cinema, then out, then home. It's a weekend of madness. I'm going out for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] eleclya_m's birthday tomorrow, and on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, it's my grandma, my brother, my uncle and my dad's birthdays. Pretty freaky.
I got my dad the first Life On Mars dvd, which kind of sucks, since I would rather like to watch it. Just to see where I actually know. [We were watching the last episode, when Sam stands on the roof... And me and my dad were both 'that's not Manchester!]

Also, Pinali should never take me out drinking, she encourages me to have shots. Come out with me more, Pina!

3 interests, 3 icons meme. Comment? :P

Battle Royale
- Japanese horror/thriller, I guess, film about a class of high school students dumped on an island and ordered to kill each other. A little fucked up, kind of gross. But interesting, The sequel kind of sucked, but I enjoyed it, as weird as it is to say.

Fruits Basket
- One of my favourite anime/manga series, with a really weird plot. As I described it to my mother when she was watching it with me 'So, there's a family, and they all get turned into animals when they're hugged by a member of the opposite sex. And this random girl goes to live with them.' ...And really, it's better than it sounds. It's a lot about family, and finding a place to belong and being accepted for yourself.

Wolves
- Kind of an old interest, but they're interesting animals, I guess.


fireflies sparkle
- It's some of Kurt Halsey's artwork, and I like fireflies. And I like sparkly things. It was also part of my effort to stop having so many anime icons.


potc - yo fucking ho
- Got this right after Dead Man's Chest, when I was 'okay, need icons!' I like having icons to represent being pissy, because I get annoyed a lot. And plus, Norrington is kind of cool, even if he is one of the bad guys.


fall out boy - pete - narnia
- So I love Fall Out Boy, but I also like making fun of them. And a picture like this is just asking for it really. Because he is hanging up in a closet. [It's a picture from the lyrics booklet from Infinity On High] Oh, Pete Wentz. You kind of terrify me at times.

[This is side one, flip me over, I know I'm not your favourite record.]
kthxrawr: (fall out boy - pete - ...yeah)

I'm totally in awe of this chewing gum. If you hadn't already figured, I have a cold, and it makes me complain about it. I'm also not sleeping very well. Possibly related. Whatever.
Airwaves chewing gum makes me feel so much better. ♥ Honestly. At least enough to help me hold out until I can go get some lemsip. Oh, and breakfast too. I forgot I only had breakfast yesterday. But I'm losing time, and my lecture is in an hour, but hey, I live so close.
I really hate being ill. XD

In other really sucky news, Data Networking is in for tomorrow. Damn you and your binary polynomials. Damn you path finding algorithms.
At least he finally put the notes online. [oh my god semagic, online is a real word, believe me on this plz.]

where is my pokemon? D: Come on, send it already.

Meme time!
Comment and I will:

1 - Tell you why I friended you.
2 - Associate you with a song/film.
3 - Tell a random fact about you.
4 - Tell a first memory about you.
5 - Associate you with a character/pairing.
6 - Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7 - Tell you my favorite userpic of yours [if it pertains].
8 - In retort, you must spread this disease in your journal.

[also, this icon has somehow become my default 'i feel shit' icon. weird.]

[In ashes to ashes, I'm falling, falling. In ashes to ashes, I'm losing, losing.]

Meme gankage from [livejournal.com profile] shuraiya, wherein you leave a comment with the person who is posting the meme and they go into your interests - they pick three of your interests and have you explain them in an entry! And then other people ask you to pick their interests! :D

Kicking the Iso
- Okay, you may or may not know I used to date [livejournal.com profile] isonekobaka. There was great angst and emo revolving around it, whatever. And some point after the breakup and getting to be friends again, there was kicking. Because I'm a little bit violent. And kick him. A lot. And in our 'oh my god we are so totally cool' way, me and a friend added it to our interests. And then other people added it. So it kind of spiralled. Jesus condones kicking the Iso! [Someone added the interest on a spoof lj.] We love our drama! ...No, really, we don't but it's all good now.

Pocketsized pop-punk boys
- Because Panic! At The Disco are tiny. They're probably not that tiny, but it is just how the fandom sees them. They're so tiny and cute. It's really a case of stealing interests from comms I'm in. [and plus, I'm kind of really into them at the moment.]

Cheap plastic toys
It's a throwback to when I still liked Gundam Seed. They had it in their interests, and I thought 'hey, that's kind of funny.' And plus, I love cheap plastic toys. I have two tins full of random junk on my desk, current contents including a Hello Kitty pencil topper, some Naruto phone charms, hairclips, my keyring chewtoy [it's bendy and comes to pieces, fun to gnaw on], paper clips and some badges.
In fact, I have a whole drawer dedicated to my random cheap toys and shiny things. I'm like a magpie.

Today was kinda fun. Bar the falling asleep every five minutes because people decided to drag me into multiconvos at midnight!
I'm not complaining, mind you.

At lunch, ended up playing frisbee with Keith, Rob and Rob's friend [k I suck at knowing people's names] and later joined by more people in our year. And yeah, I suck at frisbee. But it was fun.
After that [including demonstration of our project, but that's boring] met up with Pin, Ani and random quiet person. And it was fun. Stealing cherries! Innuendo that wasn't. ['Swallow!' *chokechoke* 'D: Stop being twisted!']

And there was also shopping, because when isn't there shopping. I said 'keep me away from the make up because I always have to buy some!' and Pin says 'I need to go look at the make up!' So I brought some. And then Anisha goes 'I want to go to TK Max!' And I always buy t-shirts there. However - lilac t-shirt with a dragon fly and the text 'I'm a great catch' is win.

This song is one that always makes the hairs on my arm stand up and makes me shiver.

Loads of songs do that. Kind of crazy.
