All of the following is RP stuff for luceti, so just skip ahead unless you're really interested. o/

I tried to come up with an actual topic to use this icon with, as opposed to just spamming you guys.

But then I remembered this icon is a thing of beauty and I shouldn't feel ashamed to use it so. NIPPLE LIIIIIIIIGHTS.

SUP, LJ. Long time no see, huh?

Sorry about that. I'm still around, honest. Most of the people I knew just migrated over to Plurk so I caved and ran over there too. I honestly probably won't use this journal a whole lot anymore... but we'll see! I really should get back in the habit of using this thing again.

...or not, as my paid account is expiring and I have no money to renew. Whoops. I'll explain that bit sometime later I guess - a lot has happened since I last posted here, orz.

But as a warning! Expect some spam from me on various things over the next few days. LJ informs me that when my account expires, it will choose what userpics I'm left with based off of the ones I've used most recently in my entries over the past two months. As... I haven't used my personal journal for longer than that, this means I now need to spam with at least fourteen of my favorite icons in hopes that I'll keep them instead of my really old TMNT icons way back when. >>

I could always delete a bunch if I get stuck with them, but I'd rather not. If I get money again someday, I'll probably pay up again, so that'd be a waste of icons. Sob. I wish LJ let you keep your loyalty pics when paid time runs out. I have fifteen of those.

Short bullet points:

- 99% certain I'm moving out now, by the end of July. At first I was downright depressed by the idea, but the more I think about it, the happier I am about it.
- I really, really should start going back to work sometime. If I want to follow my awesome plan of making money again, etc, so I can have some when I leave that doesn't get eaten up by bills. But...
- I'm finding that I'm in a much better place not working, mentally and emotionally. I'm not so stressed, and my moods have stabilized a lot. So going back to work just makes me lineface. =/
- My sleep schedule has been screwed up fr the past week thanks to those few days I did go to work, actually. I've been taking short naps trying to fix it, and I seem to finally have it going where I can go to bed at midnight and wake up at 6 AM. That's normal-ish, at least - not for me, but for regular human beings, etc.
- As a result of the above, my productivity levels are shot. Slow as I am about doing things, I should really start cleaning/packing now so I can be moved out by the end of next month.
- Gotta work on RP too. Just got the one character now, so once I get things straightened out that should be easier.
- ...will probably have to slowatus/hiatus for the entire month of July though. 8|a
- Last but not least: New One Piece chapter. EPIC. Brook, that upgrade is so fitting for you, and at the same time I'm just glad you got one. You were always short on cool DF powers, in comparison to everyone else. /SPARKLES

And that about sums everything up, I think. Thusly, it is Youtube Friday, so have a cool Durarara!! amv.

This last week or so, I've been doing a lot of thinking - trying to decide what I want to do with my life. The more I think about it, the more I feel really good about deciding to quit my job. I haven't yet, mind, but just that it's become so final in my head... it's nice. I've also really enjoyed the past two weeks I haven't been at work. Well, the last one, anyways. I was so stressed and moody for the first week, but after I settled a bit? It was great. I got the sleep I needed, I wasn't so stressed... if my RP drive weren't about dead in the water right now, I probably could've gotten a lot of tagging done.

Granted, some of this comes from the fact that I can do whatever I want in my own place. If I move back in with my mom (which is probably what's going to happen), I'm probably going to lose a lot of that freedom. Even so... I still have a good feeling here. And I can always move back out again, once I 'm back on my feet and have a new job.

/tries this thinking positive thing. IDK. All I can really say I know for sure right not that not working at Wal-Mart anymore will probably be really good for me. So no matter what else happens, I'm convinced to go with that now.

...also. New One Piece chapter? So freaking boss. Dani summed it up about perfect. /loves this series so freaking much

...this is a long shot, I figure, but does anyone know any good work from home jobs that aren't scams? And by good, I mean I will take low supplementary even.

I'm thinking I need a job change, whether I lose the one I have now or not. There's not exactly a lot of people hiring in a small town, though, so I'm trying to think of ways to make some extra money in case I quit/am fired.

I'd sell some things, but I'm pretty sure all I have that'd be worth anything is my Deadpool comics... if I can get half of what I paid for them, anyways.

But yeah. Ideas?

Today's Youtube Friday is a two-for-one deal, mostly as they just go hand in hand. It's two trailer/amv things!  Apologies if you can't understand it - the amv maker is French, so that's what they put their subtitles in.

POINT IS, they still look cool. And also that if you watch them, you pretty much get the summarization of all the cool parts in the entire Pein arc in Naruto without having to sit through the crappy bits.

The first one features Pein's invasion of Konoha, and the second Pein's fight with Kyuubi!Naruto. Not gonna lie, I think I like the first one better. Better music, and I think it's just more dynamic.

Also, speaking of Naruto.

Why, Neji? Why?

...I'm sorry I couldn't help myself. ffff >.>

But seriously. Poor Neji. See, Kishimoto. This is what happens when you neglect your side characters. They have to go on homicidal rampages just to get your attention. 8|

/stares at time

I truly hate morning shifts. Maybe if I just. Drink some vodka I can sleep like a rock for four hours and not worry about all the sleep I'll miss while I'm working. Or maybe I should not sleep. The last time I had a morning shift, the alarm didn't go off and I was late to work.

Moral of the story is, Wal-Mart stinks and you should all help me punt it. I'm sure if I kick it hard enough, a real paycheck will fall out of it. @__@

Anyways, everyone I know, including me, could use some cheering up right now, I think. So here is a video I found that I thought was cute. <3

So Dani found this really cool RP meme where you take photographs and make a collage of things you think represent your character - here's some examples, if you're interested.. It's actually pretty cool and fun, and if you're anyone but me, easy too.

Why do I say anyone but me? Eheh. Being the daughter of a photographer makes me extremely anal when it comes to picking out photos, I don't even. What should've only taken me an hour or two took me about seven.

For one character.

And there's still stuff I want to change about it. /resiiiiists

So my voice has not improved at all today. I can't even whisper anymore, seriously. They had to pull me off my register halfway through my shift today because no one knew what I was trying to say unless I wrote it out on paper.

...admittedly. This is cool with me. But it'll suck if it lasts much longer - the bosses won't be too happy with that, I imagine. I took a look at my throat on my break though... and I'm starting to wonder if it has something to do with my tonsils. They're starting to look swollen. Just nngh. I do not have the money to go see a doctor again. I have insurance, yes, but I don't really know how many times I can afford doctor visits with that. Trying to save it for emergencies, you know? Because yeah. I don't want to know what happens after I use up that yearly allowance anytime soon.


Ahem. Moving onto more interesting pastures: I finally watched all of Durarara!! And it was very, very cool. Kind of takes it's time setting things up, but once it gets moving? Very intriguing plot. I highly rec it - all the episodes are on Youtube too. So all of you, GO WATCH IT NOW.

Except for you, Marie and Kel. You just do your homework/studying/sacrificing your brain meat to the otherworldy being known as Higher Education. I BELIEVE IN YOU. /cheerleads

Anyways, yeah. To celebrate the awesomeness that is Durarara!! have an amv for Youtube Friday. This is a fun one.

It is a nice, bright and sunny day outside today. Spring is finally here. And I have to walk to work in it.

...why is this a bad thing? One word. Allergies. Between those - and I have a good, good many - and whatever's lingering from my stint of bronchitis last month, I currently have no voice at all. Yay. 8D

Admittedly, it made working as people greeter last night tremendously fun. Most customers had no idea I was there, much less talking to them. >.>

So let's get to some of that essaying I was talking about, yeah? We'll start with the easy, speculative One Piece one. As pfft, again, lack of brain energy to do much with the Team 10 essays I want to do. 8|

It is possibly not true, possibly may never be revealed, and I should know better than to ever try and imagine that I will ever guess something that Oda's up to, but darn it, I try anyways. Also, partial credit for this goes to the people in the OP chat I was in... a couple weeks ago, I think. The theory came up there and we kinda just rolled with it for laughs and then talked about it some more when it started to make more sense. And then I just developed it beyond that.

Cut for spoilers and tl;drCollapse )

I have like. A million things I want to write/talk about right now, and more than half of them are fandom related. Several essays related to Team 10 (I'm thinking I might make a series) and WMG theory on Zoro's heritage that's probably not true but interests me anyways.


In which I kinda want to hurt KishimotoCollapse )

In which Oda wins again and hooked me with these flashback charactersCollapse )

In which we compare the two. NARUTO VS. ONE PIECE. Who tells the moral better?Collapse )

I'm starting to wonder if I have the drive necessary for three characters at Luceti. Ever since I got sick three weeks ago, I just haven't been feeling it. I'm much better than I was, but I've started coughing again at night and waking up is just... nngh because I'm so groggy. And now that I'm back to working, when I get home most of the time I just want to zone out.

This is horrible, because I love my characters. I was totally psyched to bring Longshot back, and Brook consistently remains the best character for crack - Shikamaru just comes really easily to me for everything else. So I kinda don't want to drop any of them. At the same time, it's at least made me realize that I'll never be able to handle four characters, so. I'll just put those other characters I had in mind on the back burner. >.>

But yeah. Now I'm wondering if even three is such a good idea. Mrrr. I'll give it until the end of the month. If there's still no change... well, we'll see then.

And then because SM did it - YOUTUBE SATURDAY. No amv or anything, just this... ffff I don't know what it is, but it's beautiful.

So. The maintenance guy is here. We think we found what the problem is with my hot water heater.


I'm totally serious. Apparently it was one of the two tanks in the laundry room (the second belonging to my upstairs neighbor). They're both wrapped up in installation, and when they unwrapped mine.... there was a gaping hole in the panel. You can see the stains from where it blew backwards.

From the way I understand it, what happened is that one of the valves on top had gotten loose, and so water ended up dripping back inside the tank. And eventually the tank was like "I've had 'nough of this shit" and flipped a table.

And this is why rent is amazing. Thank god I'm not the one who has to pay for this.

Today (yesterday?) was interesting. My sleeping schedule has been screwed lately, but I had work at 10:30 in the morning so I tried to go to bed early. Didn't work. Ended up getting like. An hour. And the cold shower just made me feel about ten times as miserable.

Anyways! I get to work only to find out that... why no. They weren't expecting me back until tomorrow (which, not gonna lie, I was secretly overjoyed to hear), and that when I did come back, I needed to have a doctor's release.

Well that one was new for me, so after I cleared some pay issues up with them I went to go get that doctor's release for tomorrow.

Only they were booked. And closed on the weekends. So the soonest I can get in is on Monday. Which is my day off.

...so technically I don't have to be back to work until Wednesday. Huh. 8|a

Aaaand there goes my tax refund. But free days off from work are always a rarity, so I will try and enjoy it and catch up with stuff at Luceti again. Or make sure the water heater gets fixed.

But yes, that aside. Got home around noon and went to take a nap, which quickly turned out to be about eight hours longer than naps should be. And wouldn't you know it, Luceti had been very busy in those hours. I always seem to be so very late when it comes to those plotting posts - I don't know how I do it. By the time I was caught up though, I had a giant migraine and tagging was pretty much impossible.

It was only about the time I was about ready to dig my brain out with a spoon that I remembered I hadn't eaten anything since lunch the day before. Whoops. Wouldn't you know it - soon as I ate something the headache started dying off. MY BAD. >.>

And so now I'm finally awake again! Only... it's 5:30 AM. FML.
S.S. Failboat
So. Apparently I lied in one of my more recent entries. The hot water is still very much out.

/sob. Showers are very much my one girly indulgence. I have been known to take showers as long as an hour at times. This goes double if I'm sick. ;~;

In the meantime, though, I have learned that I'm capable of getting in and out in less than ten minutes after all. Go figure.

EDIT: This edit to celebrate the first new Avatar Abridged episode since basically forever. I think this has got to be the best one since the Jet episode too. SADLY, Youtube won't let me embed it here, SO CLICK THE LINK AND GO WATCH IT NOW GUYS.

you are darkolivegreen

Your dominant hues are green and yellow. There's no doubt about the fact that you think with your head, but you don't want to be seen as boring and want people to know about your adventurous streak now and again.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is slightly darker than most people's. You try to see things for what they are and face situations honestly. You'd rather get to the point than look for what's good.

Elsewhere, gdit Kishimoto. Why are you so stingy in giving me my Team 10 fix? Three pages a chapter is just cruel. Also. Asuma, you really were too badass to live. I guess that's why you had to die before we could see more than two moves out of you. Also, also. Kishi, I think you forgot how Kage Mane no Jutsu works. If Chouji had actually made himself hit Asuma? I imagine that would have been unpleasant on Shikamaru's part. Also, also, also. CHOUJI. Chouji, love, I don't know if I want to hug you or whap you upside the head a little. You're too kind to be a ninja, but too badass to be anything but. I hope this arc lets you find a balance.

...idk why I'm talking to the characters like this. /handwave. I am obviously ill, so let's just leave it at that. 8|

And someday, I will make an entry for my love that is the OP timeskip. Last chapter wasn't as great as the ones before it were, but dude. Considering the last several chapters have been nothing but illustrated awesome? Not a big deal. And I have much catching up to do as far as squeeing goes.
