I have hated my username for some time, now (I picked two random words, added an H in one, and stuck an underscore between them - gah, it sucks) and finally I have gotten up off my lazy ass and moved.

I AM NOW wildejoy (account under construction). PLEASE COMMENT HERE TO BE ADDED, OR ADD ME AND I WILL RECIPROCATE.

I won't delete this journal, however, because I'm way too lazy to move all my posted fiction over. BUT any new stuff I write will be posted there. This journal is, for all intensive purposes, DEAD. A moment to mourn.

Renay: could you please invite me to notabookcluband 26cockjokesat that account? (I need to get some of my stories from 26cockjokessince I didn't post them for fear of Sev finding out.)

 Ugh. So, cramps today? Are so bad. Like, worse than usual. I've lain around the entire day doing nothing but watching DVDs of Supernatural (pretty boys, so fucking pretty) since I rented the first season. Dude, that Bugs episode? *shudder* Not cool.

BUT, AMY ACKER! Do you know how excited I was to see Amy Acker? I was like, DUDE, YES, SOMEBODY ELSE REALIZED HOW AMAZING THAT WOMAN IS. Seriously, I have the biggest girl-crush on her. (And yeah, that picture I linked to is the one I edited for my journal banner.

Anyway. I find it funny how every time they know it's a spirit, they're like, "SUPERDUPER. Let's go burn the remains." And every time, there's some reason why they can't. It just seems silly. Maybe one time it should actually be that simple. We could just have a few extra minutes of closeups on beautiful boys.

Why don't I have an Amy Acker icon?

 So as I was checking my flist today I found this incredibly insightful (flocked, though, sorry!) post of scribblemoose's. Thank you, Scribbles, for waking me up, at least. I never post here anymore. WHY DON'T I POST ANYMORE?

Well, HI, GUYS. DID YOU MISS ME?

Let's see. Exam stress is perched on my shoulder (actually, I shouldn't say 'perched' - it's more like a two-ton elephant breathing down my neck). If I fail the math exam, I will almost definitely fail the year (exams are worth far too much of my mark, goddamnit!). I'm studying, but I'm studying so hard for math and science that I have even glanced at Spanish, Japanese, French, or English.

BUT! On the bright side, NINETY-TWO PER CENT ON MY VERY IMPORTANT TRIGONOMETRY TEST. THAT'S RIGHT, I MADE THAT TEST MY BITCH. I BET ITS ASS IS STILL SORE FROM THAT POUNDING.

Okay, I'm done, I promise. I'm treating myself to sushi tonight as a reward, though. Maybe that day I was channeling my dad's side of the family... (For those who don't know, my uncle and aunt and both scientists. One of their sons is a biologist and he just married a chemist. The other son is a video game/robotics/computer program designer. They are breeding all the stupid out of our family.)

The annoying thing is, most of my mistakes were mostly from rounding too early on in my calculations. It tipped my answer just slightly off. Grrr.

FANDOM. What is happening in my fandoms, these days? I haven't been posting any of the stuff I've been writing due to my serious self-esteem issues. scribblemoose, bottle_of_shine, not_cynical, inksheddings, rainjoyswriting, and others, are just so freaking good that it makes me feel so inadequate. I read something of theirs and after I've finished sighing wistfully over it I begin to wail about how PITY ME, I WILL NEVER CATCH UP. OH NOES! When I really should just suck it up and post. If people like it, great. If not, life goes on. My friends aren't going to hate me or laugh at me if I write something shitty, and if they do they aren't worth knowing anyway.

I'm not writing for other people (well, maybe my dad, since when he doesn't like something he's incredibly tactful about it, and when he does he gushes like a twelve-year-old schoolgirl - it's adorable) and it isn't my job. There shouldn't be pressure. I started writing because I love it, and I think I've become too concerned with what people think of my stuff. There are always going to be better writers than me, and there are always going to be better writers than them. I've got to stop worrying. It's just one of those things that easier said than done.

I AM SORRY FOR THE TL;DR. I CAN'T HELP IT. IT'S LIKE FINGER DIARRHEA. TT_TT

What personality trait has gotten you in the most trouble?
I have trouble keeping my mouth shut. Not on secrets, I mean - I keep those quite well, I think - but when I disagree with something, I tend to just... say so. This got me into serious trouble in grade school, because I'd talk back to my teachers when I disagreed or thought they were being unfair. Several report cards in my younger years said, "Has trouble respecting authority", which is so funny because I didn't get sent to the principal's office even once. ^___^ But silence is tacit agreement, so whenever adults were being asshats, I told them so. In more polite words, I expect.

More goodies for Riyo! Okay, it's not very fancy. But hopefully it's the thought that counts. ^___^

Three Gippal/Baralai wallpapers I made. Every single image in which the two of them are together, I had to manipulate. And I do not have fancy schmancy tools, folks - I have the bare basics. So even if you don't like them, a comment would be very much appreciated - just tell me how I could improve. I spent hours on this, trying out different positions and texts and fonts and images and layers and colours and LOTS MORE CRAP.

Very badly-written semi-coherent review behind the cut.

Watched Donnie Darko this evening with a friend.

HOLY. SHIT.

I'm a 'fraidy cat, okay? And that movie? Scared me. Gotta admit it. Luckily I clutched at my friend's arm the whole time. She was a good sport about it. It's less scary the second time round, however.

It was a good movie, though - extraordinarily confusing, but well-done. Also, I love Jake and Maggie Gylleenhaal, so we were on to a winner there right from the start.

If any of you have seen Donnie Darko and got... well, okay, any of it, lemme know. I'm still a little just slightly really confused.

Still, I loved it.

*dreamy, fangirly sigh*
Oh, Jake.


Oh, yeah, and I thank you for te mention of that song Self Preservation,  Susan. Good taste! =)
