Because I like to avoid all work, I decided to make a post for an introduction to all those new to my livejournal. I don't have much in my lj, but just in case someone doesn't want to go through ALL my past entries to find something interesting or want to just go through all the tags. Instead, I nipped that thought in the bud, and have a compilation of all my posts categorized.

But first of all...

And enjoy the ride.

cynicalism would like you to know that she helped come up with the phrase. (last friends only had "semi-friends (with benefits) only")
bitofpixiedust would like you to know that the benefits are great x9.
partypaprika would like you to know that tinyangl is easier than Jin with goth chicks in LA. (Also, that tinyangl flashes people more than Arashi's Tokyo Dome outfits.)
imwahyou would like you to know that tinyangl is very M. (tinyangl would like you all to know that this is sadly true.)

My "Important" Mildly Interesting Marginally Interesting Interesting only to Me Posts.
Now under lj-cuts because the list got LONG.

(Updated 02.06.2012.)
Don't know where these go. (Obnoxious lists? Maybe?)
- List of Shige's J-web
- Scrapbook 2010: Part1, Part2, Part3
- Top 10 Dramas list from 2009 (Most still hold true.)
- Dramas from Winter 2006-Summer 2011 (with notations of watched/etc.)

Thanks for reading this and do enjoy yourself here.
Don't forget! If you're new, please comment here with your introduction. Nothing too fancy, of course. ^_^ Just a name, how you found me, and whether or not you'd like to be friended back! I won't lock fandom stuff, so if that's what you're here for, then let me know. :D

[#002] Getting Bored....

I'm running into the problem this past week or so that all my projects that I usually work on while I watch videos are pretty much.... well, I wouldn't say set but pretty steady and don't need me to spend as much time on. Which means, fuck, it's right around this that I pick up a new project entirely out of sheer boredom to throw myself into. And man, I do not need to pick up more projects. It's kind of why I'm getting back into LJ (although that said, I cannot watch videos and type; I get too distracted by my video so I have to stop watching and well, that defeats my multitasking goals). And also, it's a reason I've been so gungho on getting back into cross-stitching. It'll keep my hands busy and I won't have to start something new that I don't intend to finish/has a hazard to not finishing. That said, I cannot find any of my old stitching at B's place so WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY?!?! T.T

On another note, as well as to pimp anamuan (although I guess this is on dreamwidth where she is also anamuan), I've been having fun making Nikki write things for me. So far, she gave me a really filthy Tea/Kettle comment fic, and I'm excited for more! (There's also a fun Harry/Draco and Sid/Geno to check out.) It's making me tempted to do a prompt post but haahahaha I haven't written in years, so not gonna subject you guys to the awfulness of my current-day writing.

B and I watched a bunch of things yesterday (and by bunch, I mean a movie and two episodes of a Jdrama). He actually took the day off (because he hates his job and needed a break), and so we managed to get 1) a matinee showing and 2) my 2 for 1 movie tickets because AT&T to see Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse which I've been dying to see since the trailers dropped. I had heard all sorts of amazing things about it, so I had tried to go see it around the time it first came out, but you know, things happen. lol So we finally managed yesterday and SO FUCKING GOOD, GUYS. Like, if you haven't seen it yet, and you enjoy Superhero movies, it is well worth the watch. It's equal parts funny and movie, beautiful to watch, great storyline and GREAT characters. Word of warning, the animation gets a little hard to watch at the start (a lot of flashing and "glitching") but other than that, it's fucking gorgeous and SO GODDAMN GOOD. Please watch.

We also watched the first two episodes of Kemono ni Narenai Watashitachi which is an Aragaki Yui/Matsuda Ryuhei drama. Normally, B doesn't watch Jdramas with me; well, largely because I haven't watched them in a long while either... but he saw me watching the first episode and kept getting pulled in by the characters and some of the scenes. It's an interesting watch so far, but we both keep cringing at Aragaki's work scenes because they feel too real and WAY too familiar to us. Also, there are aspects of both of their characters (more toward Matsuda Ryuhei than Aragaki) that are unlikable, but interesting. So I'm curious to see where this goes. B liked the first episode, but did not like the second. Hilariously, he said "it was just too melodramatic" and I said, "it's a Japanese drama. that's all they are." So that was fun, lol. We're probably gonna check out the 3rd episode tonight so we'll see if he sticks with it. If not, I'm probably gonna bam through all of it this week hahaha.

I just got through all those paragraphs and a part of me is twitching that I didn't do my usual i., ii., iii.... Especially because this would've been point three, but you know what, LET'S BREAK FROM TRADITION. (who the fuck am i even yelling at?) Anyway, I had to call two doctors' offices and my insurance today and I hated it. One of the things I hate the most in life is fucking calling doctors' offices, making appointments, hammering out my insurance. Like, why can I not just click a button and make an appointment and just go and THAT IS IT? Boo to all of that shit. Also, I had a bit of a liquid lunch as you will, so it made my first call a little bit more difficult, lol. Either way, I was successful, I guess, and now have two doctors' appointments to go to next week. SIGH. What is this taking of yourself shit? T.T

Okay, I should stop typing this and do some work (haha) Talk to you all next post? :DDDDD
omgcp - jack

[#001] Well, boo

i. So every couple of years, I try to revive this Livejournal... because, you know, life. lol. In truth, I got an email about my posts from 10 years ago and it got me reminiscing over all I used to write about and all the things I used to share, from the mundane like a WHOLE DAY'S WORTH OF CLASSES (five in one day?! what was i thinking?!) to a whole post about my frustrations with my family (largely about my mom and her treatment of me and my siblings) which had some of the most amazing comments. (Guys, I loved you all. ♥) So yes, I'm trying this again after three years even though I'm sure I won't last for very long lol. Last time's attempt lasted six months (which is kind of impressive.... but is frequently the length of time I'll last for a project before I give up [see: my 2018 bullet journal lol]). So I guess, see you guys for six months before I disappear again.

P.S. There's a new posting window thing and it's weird lol

ii. Checked out my intro from 2016 and hahahaah, the catch-up post basically has the same damn things. So, uh nothing new here. Life. Work. Friends. Boyfriend (haha 4 years, guys. this is impossible). Boring, but yeah.

As always, I consume a shitton of media. Like three years ago, I've fallen in love with Youtube. My subscription channels page is ridiculously long and I always have videos to catch up on. (Especially since I've gotten back into JE, but I'll talk about that later.) Last time, I was talking about Screen Junkies (who I still love) but there are so many more channels that I follow. And since I don't wanna go overboard, I'll just share one, for now. Critical Role is my newest love (I mean, if you can say newest since I've been watching it for the past year or so). It's a bunch of voice actors who came together and stream themselves playing Dungeons & Dragons. It's been ongoing for 4 years, but that spans two different campaigns. I linked to the playlist for their newest campaign, which only has about 40+ episodes. That said, each episode is 4 hours+, so it's time consuming. But as you all know me, I multi-tasking like a mo-fo, so I'm always doing something while watching, so it passes pretty easily. Anyway, if you've ever been vaguely interested in D&D, I recommend checking it out!

Also, wanting to share this video from Jubilee: It's their "Can 2 strangers fall in love after 36 questions?" series, but this one specifically is about two deaf individuals and I liked that they kept no audio, and didn't put in voiceovers or anything. So it was nice. Check it out here.

iii. Let's go back to my mention of JE. So about a few weeks ago, I decided to get back into watching things and of course, I fell headfirst into watching all the Arashi videos. Because 1) they're probably the most active group that I still know of and 2) it's Arashi and I always loved their dynamic and 3) there are still plenty of people out there who sub Arashi videos. Hard to get into communities sometimes, but they exist. And I'm sincerely so thankful that there are still people who generously share/sub videos.

And so, I guess it's particularly timely that I got back into them a few weeks before they announce their hiatus. I guess my thoughts on this really just boil down to, take care of yourself first. If Ohno wants to take a break, I think it's his prerogative. They've been working pretty full-stream since their debut, and over the years, with their rising popularity, their schedules are constantly filled, constantly managed, and constantly exhausting, I'm sure. And while they do talk of going on vacation here and there, just like any job, when you get back, it's like, man, I need a vacation from that vacation. And for Arashi, I'm sure they couldn't do that. So, if they go on indefinite hiatus and Ohno quits, you know, it'll be sad, but if it's for the good of their own mental state, yeah. Go for it. If they come back, I'll be ecstatic. Whichever case, I'm rooting for them. (Also, I'm going to Japan March 2020, and I fucking hope I can see them in one way or another lol)

iv. Randomly, because my first post of 2016 brought up cross-stitching, it made me remember that I still love cross-stitching and I actually tried to find all my old kits and stuff. I thought I'd brought it to my new place (aka my boyfriend's place), but I can't find it and now have enlisted my sister to see if it's still back at my house. UGH hope I can find it. That said, I may have bought two new kits the other day so hahahahahah.....hahaha....

And with that, it made me think of how I have too many hobbies. I'm still bullet journaling(ish). I made a new one for 2019 (as Cyn got me a new journal!) and so far, so good? I kept it way simpler from 2018 where I did a layout for every week, and that became way too much of a hassle. Instead, right before 2019, I did a monthly spread for ALL TWELVE MONTHS over with, so that I'd have no excuses. All I have to literally do is fill in my day's activities. It turned out pretty well, so here's to hoping I can maintain it. Like I mentioned earlier, I stopped around halfway through the year. lol. Rooting for sticking to it until July!!!!! XD (The only things I kept up-to-date with were just my Media consumption and my allergy shots schedule lol. So the important things.)

And also, I started jewelry making this past half year? Like, I got so obsessed that I bought all these materials to make stuff and I even gifted my sister and mother pairs of earrings because, um, they technically asked for it lol. So I'm trying to expand a bit in design.... I'm primarily focused on making earrings. 1) Because it's all I wear and 2) it's easier to recreate them, I think. lol Maybe I'll share pictures in my next post (haha.)

v. Lastly, one of the things that takes up a lot of my time is I volunteer over on AO3. It's a lot of fun and I really enjoy being a behind-the-scenes kinda person. There's not much else here because I don't wanna get into details about what I do and where, but I just really love AO3 in general as a website and uh yeah. That's all. (I also needed a fifth bullet point because, you know, me and nice numbers and all.)

SO UH. YEAH. THIS WAS LONG FOR NO GOOD REASON. I should've probably cut it somewhere but I'm too lazy to figure out where, so just yeah. Hi?

[#019] COMICON!!!!!!


Can you tell I'm super excited? Like, I cannot express enough how ridiculously happy I am that I finally managed to get 3-day tickets. I have tried for years and years, and this is finally the year I win!!!!! :) almost overbought, but luckily J hadn't gotten her ticket yet so I got hers as well.

This year, I'm also planning on going truly dressed up. One year I was the Black Canary (Arrow tv-show version) without the blonde wig, but I wasn't fully immersed. THIS YEAR, I want to actually attempt a costume. And I decided (actually I chose this a few months ago, I blame B) to dress up as Yennefer from Witcher 3. For the most part, it shouldn't be that difficult for most of the items--just minor add-ons here and there. But it's the jacket (doublet?) that will probably prove to be a bitch and a half. So because it'll probably take me a while, I AM GOING TO START IMMEDIATELY. Like maybe even next week. *________* (have i mentioned enough how excited i am about this whole thing. also i just love yennefer and i am tempted to get a small stuffed unicorn to bring around with me hahahahahahaha)

Now i just need to figure out how to sew. (hahah. J said she'd help me with that part though. I guess it's mostly tracking down all the items, SIGH.) also if any of you've done this before and can give me some tips? that'd be fucking awesome.

ii. So I unfortunately broke my streak of posting at least once a week for the past month (and a half?). Last week, after the interview, I was largely at B's and didn't really have a computer. And when I was on his computer, I just procrastinated and played games (We finished The Room, and I am fucking amazing at Hexcells. But speaking of the interview, I don't think it went badly, but it has been over a week now. And so I doubt I'm in the running, lol. Which is perfectly okay. I mean, you can't win them all, you know? J helped me out a lot and was practicing with me Tuesday night. :) I just have to keep on chugging.

iii. Uhhhhh, I don't have much else! Things that've made me happy this past week:
1) Trashy, trashy Coupled. Like, I hate all dating shows (usually), but this one kills me for some reason, and I'm just super excited to see where all these relationships go, and who is going to end up with whom in the end. There's one girl who just grates at me, and let's just say I am an evil person. :X
3) Check, Please updated this past week, and N just always manages to choose the week I'm at my busiest to update. BUT IT'S COOL. I FOLLOWED ALONG (even if it was hours later) and SPAZZED ALONG WITH EVERY ONE ELSE. LIKE WHAT THE FUCK.
4) I got myself a puzzle coloring book!!!!! It's a lot of fun and I don't have to choose random colors to color in these pictures--i'm giving numbers associated with colors and I have to follow them, and it is exactly what I need from a coloring book. lol Today, I had to buy a 50 pack of coloring pencils to go with it, but WHATEV. I am excited to break them in.
5) I went to a quiet dance party last Friday, and it's not quite as quiet as they say. People are singing at the top of their lungs, they're dancing like mad, and it was an insane amount of fun. Like, I thought I'd be self-conscious, but no! You just went all out, because even though people can see what channel you're on (the wireless headphones have 3 separate channels you can cycle through), it becomes more of a OMG, YOU'RE DANCING THAT WILD? MUST BE A GOOD SONG. So yeah, there were five of us and we were sweating like beasts at the end of the night. I was fucking sore as shit when I woke up (the first time) Saturday morning, but it was so worth it. I would totally go again!!!!!

[#018] Help?

i. OKAY. So I wasn't going to bring this up until it happened, but Cyn came up with a good point that I could ask you lovely people for advice and tips! But uh, I might've gotten an interview for next Wednesday. Now, I have only ever had interviews in-house. (And that was only one occurrence and I obvs didn't get the job lol) So my knowledge and experience with this is minimal at best. I've been mainlining the website and I think she has some good advice for researching the company, what questions will likely be asked, and what questions I should be asking.

BUT IS THERE ANYTHING THERE THAT I SHOULD KEEP IN MIND? Like, explain it me like I have no common sense, cough. (CYn laughing suggested I should also post up my potential outfits and have you guys decide what I should wear too. lololol)

ii. IN OTHER HAPPY NEWS, my niece is 4!!!!!! oh god how is this going by so fast. T.T

I can't believe she's grown so big now. Sobbing.

iii. Eh, might as well.

30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 09 – One of your favorite characters

IN LIKE ALL OF MY FANDOMS EVER? Sailor Mercury will probably always be in my top favorite characters of all time. I always related to her as a kid, and always thought despite the fact that her attacks at the beginning were really weak (like seriously? mist?), thought the team would've definitely fallen apart without her there. She was the sturdy one, reliable and smart, the planner. I LOVED HER OKAY. Plus we both wore glasses so fuck yes. ♥♥♥

[#017] What a Difference a Day Makes

So. After yesterday's downer of a post, today is happy!!!!!!

i. First and foremost, everyone on my Twitter has been so fucking awesome today. I'm pretty sure we are spamming people's timelines. There's convos with Beth, Jemz, and Karen, and Cyn and Rhey. It's just so much fun, and reminds me why I love the online community so so so much. I have convinced a few of them to come back to LJ for a little bit. Some of them MAY BE DOING THE MEME TOO, so that's going to be damn awesome. I just like people. I spent a good portion of today just catching up on my comments (because Cyn decided to just come in and blow up my other two posts lol, NOT THAT I'M COMPLAINING OF COURSE). And even though I intended to do some semblance of chores (I really need to wash my sheets), that is definitely going to be put off until tomorrow.

All that's really important is is that I love you all, and I'm so glad you're my friends. ♥♥♥

(and i'm really really proud of myself to actually be able to convince other ppl to do the fangirl meme because it's so much fun and i'm so ready to read everyone's responses.)

ii. Second thing that made me happy today was that NGOZI OPENED UP HER STORE AGAIN. In which she was selling Huddles 1 and 2, PLUS SAMWELL UNIVERSITY SHIRTS. SO guess what I spent 50 bucks on before I even really woke up this morning. *__________* No fucking regrets. AND I may have just checked my email, and it's already marked as going off to ship. GUYS, I ALMOST HAVE UGLY TEARS RIGHT NOW. UGLY UGLY TEARS.

iii. Third, B cheered me up in the simplest of ways. All he had to do was text me some ridiculousness, as he does, and it made me laugh. This boy, indeed.

iv. I finally watched ScreenJunkies' TV Fights title championship today, and it was so bloody good. Like, movie fights is well and fun, but I think TV Fights is my favorite. Probably in large part because as a medium, I prefer television, but whatever. Anyway, I tweeted a couple of things, and Roxy (the host/judge) favorited them and I might've silently squeed to myself after that happened. So yay!!!!! I'm just sad I didn't get to livetweet it like everyone else I follow. lol It ended up even TRENDING that night, which is fucking amazing!!!!!

v. Okay, I meant to put a point on reccing a podcast, but as this is already the fifth point, I'll put that off until another post lol

30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 08 – A fandom that you thought you wouldn’t get sucked into, but ended up getting sucked into anyway
Okay. The easy answer would probably be Teen Wolf, because what the fuck, why am I so obsessed with these characters, TO THIS DAY STILL READ THEIR FIC, even though I've only seen half of the first season and only know characterizations through all the Youtube compilations and Tumblr gifsets. Oh and like two years worth of reading fic.

BUT THAT'S THE EASY ANSWER. So here are two different answers since I've been obnoxiously using Teen Wolf for everything. This first one will be simple. It's all because of fucking Cyn. Dan/Blair in Gossip Girl. Okay, this only partially counts for me, because I don't give a shit about the other characters. I only care about fucking Dan and Blair and their story, and how that last season fucking ruined them. And the only reason I got into them, because I KNOW FOR A FACT I WOULD NEVER HAVE SOUGHT THEM OUT MYSELF BECAUSE I HATED THIS SHOW, was because of Cyn and how she got me to watch all these damn Dan/Blair scenes, and how the season this was happening was season 5 which was DAIR ALL THE WAY. You know, until that ending. SO YES. I definitely shouldn't have gotten sucked in, but their chemistry and their banter and their potential was enough to get their hooks into me.

Second is Arrow. Which is a surprise, I know, because I was reccing this show left and right. But I didn't get into it until halfway through its second season, I think? But I wasn't keen on starting a CW show, and so resisted, and especially because whatever, who's the Green Arrow? He's not important? How boring. But I remember it being winter break, and I must've been bored, and I think I saw more than enough people on Tumblr who were spazzing about Olicity, and their characters, that I folded. And I DON'T REGRET IT. Because holy fuck, season 2 of Arrow has to be one of my top favorite seasons of any television show. Yes, it has gone significantly downhill since then, but I'm hoping with this next season they can fix it up. The last year of flashbacks. I NEED THEM TO RECOVER, because Olicity is still a ship that I love. And even though I haven't seen the last few eps of this season, I remain at least a little hopeful. Maybe.

[#015] While B Plays Destiny....

...And I take a short break from doing random transcription work, putting up a post!! :D

Okay, so I'm doing three days, because when I copied over the first two, I automatically was like, um, I'm definitely not going to have a good enough response to justify A WHOLE POST. lol

30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 05 – Your fandom secret
Okay, I really couldn't think of one? In the few fandoms I've been an active participant in, I haven't really done anything that, I think, was worth keeping secret. The only thing I could think of was that in the early days of the JE anon hate meme, I was in there commenting (anonymously ofc). It was back when hate memes hated on the boys and not so much the users. I still remember cackling when Yamapi's dead fish eyes first came up because I remember commenting along in that convo. Still one of my favoritest fandom jokes.

Day 06 – Favorite song that brings fangirl tears to your eyes
Um. I'm trying to think. I don't know if I have any? Like, they'd have to be connected to something in particular. Like a jdrama or an anime. Like the song in 1 Litre of Tears that they sing on the bridge, I think? Definitely would make me tear up. But a song just in general? I don't know if I really have one.

Day 07 – Your OTP(s)
OKAY. SO. In general, I never have ONE ship that I will stick to. Currently though, since I'm only actively reading for two fandoms, that's what I'll talk about. In Teen Wolf, it's hands down Sterek aka Stiles/Derek. I can read other fic in that fandom with other pairings, but about 90%-95% would have to be Sterek. Then there's Check, Please where it just HAS to be Jack/Bitty. But again, I can read other pairings in that fandom, but my OTP is without a doubt Zimbits! :D

Days: 01 | 02 | 03 | 04

I hope I will be seeing Rhey and Cyn in my comments again. >.>

[#014] Tiredddddddddddd

i. Sammy and Ri left today!!!!! Had a shit ton of fun that involved trying to make margaritas (hahahah). I cut myself a bunch of times, spilled all sorts of food over me, dropped things left and right, even somehow broke a unopened bottle of hot sauce we bought THAT DAY. I don't know what was up with me yesterday, but I was really, as Sammy said, just a hot mess. lol What can I do? We also broke out my board games, and they got really into Ticket to Ride which was a fucking lot of fun. *___________* They taught me how to play 500-pt Rummy (I think that's what it was called) which was ALSO a lot of fun! And then today before they left, we got into like hours long discussion on media, racism, representation, jdramas, and fanfiction. Probably other things too, but I can't recall exactly. It was just really interesting and I enjoyed the opportunity to talk about these things. *_________*

ii. All that said. Despite the fact that I definitely got a LOT OF SLEEP. I am still super sleepy. lol I watched a couple of things (finished off the jar of salsa we were using as chips dip) and now I just wanna nap. It's only 5:30 though so IDK if I should risk it because then I'll probably sleep late. Again. As always. (okay yeah no different than usual.)

iii. SO YESTERDAY. Or was it the day before? I can't remember. But I was rereading some of my old posts on LJ and I refound the Vote off the Pretties meme I had done like 5 years ago. I AM TEMPTED TO BRING IT BACK. But idk if anyone would actually vote. I think you can only vote on LJ with LJ accounts. And Twitter has a limit of 4 results in one poll, so idk. It seems like a lot of work. (That said, I already started looking up photos just in case I do get the urge to go through with it. WHO KNOWS THOUGH. I am me. AKA lazy as fuck.)


v. Okay, so I put that last point in just so I could have 5 points instead of an odd 4 point-er. I promised Cyn that I'd do the 30 days of fangirlism meme in my next post and so. Here we go!
30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 04 –First, current, or favorite fandom crush
I'm assuming this means characters in fandoms? And that I can choose any of the three options? So I'm going with first. That would definitely be Taichi from Digimon. I loved him so much--his headstrongness, his determination, his (ahah) courage. I thought he was such a strong character, and I really wanted him to be happy. Although, back then, I definitely DID NOT SHIP TAICHI/SORA so I was like, yes. Go be with Yamato (who I slightly disliked because of his antagonism with Taichi lol). And instead, I was a random fan of Taichi/Mimi because, idk, I liked the stereotypes they represented and thought they'd work well together. Also, the character was cute. So yes. Definitely one of my first fandom crushes. :DDDDD

[#013] solo right until I die, cause I got me for life~

(I have had G-Eazy's Me Myself and I looping in my head for some reason. Which is why it's my title lolol)

i. ATLANTIC CITYYYYYYYY. We had quite the time~~~~ It really felt like we somehow condensed four days of activities into just two. o.o But fuck, I had such a blast and I cannot say enough how much I love my friends and how I really bless every day I've known them. (And fuck, it has been years: J for 18 years; C for 16 years.) Anyway, see us classy bitches here. Don't we look fucking fabulous? I kinda wish we'd taken this photo WITHOUT the jackets, but whatever, haha.
So. Some highlights!!!
Collapse )

ii. SO ANIME. haha, really random, I know, but B and I have started watching two animes randomly (1 because we like watching shit together and 2 because anime is something we can agree on haha)
1) My Hero Academia - SO FUCKING GOOD. I'm really into this series. The main character makes me just want to root for him all the way. His rival in this though, I want to stab with a sharp stick. Like. UGHHHHHHHHHH he can be so fucking frustrating. I am enjoying getting to learn about this universe, how the quirks work, WHAT THE DIFFERENT QUIRKS ARE--some of them are so fucking creative though, guys, the characters being introduced. There's only 8 eps out so far, but I promise you that even if you intend to watch like 3 eps (like B and I had tried to do last Wednesday), YOU WILL JUST WANT TO KEEP ON FUCKING GOING.

2) Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Season 3 in particular because it's the only thing on Hulu lol - So I went into this knowing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. B has loved the manga for like ever though which ps gives me ideas for future instances, cough, so even though the portion of the manga that they're showing in this season he hasn't read for YEARS, he still remembers some parts. He was able to explain some of the basic things, although one of his answers (regarding Stands) was legit just, THERE ARE NO RULES. THE AUTHOR WAS MAKING IT UP AS HE WENT ALONG. Which made me laugh so hard. Anyway, THIS IS FASCINATING. Sure some of the characters are hilariously ridiculous, the story is super intriguing. The first few episodes were INSTANTLY SUPER DARK though, so just a word of warning there. But just like the Quirks in My Hero Academia, the Stands are really unique and interesting and I'M JUST DYING TO KNOW WHAT KOICHI'S WAS. We had the same issue here where we intended to watch only 3 eps, and ended up watching about 5. IT WOULD'VE BEEN MORE but I was getting really sleepy, lol. I'm really excited to see more though. B is insisting we watch the first two seasons though so guess what I'm gonna do this weekend lol.

iii. SPEAKING OF THIS WEEKEND. I am getting a Ri and Sammy this Sunday and it's gonna be filled with board games and vodka. *____________* I AM EXCITED. i really have to clean, cough.

P.S. LIMITLESS WAS FUCKING CANCELLED. YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW DEVASTATED THIS MAKES ME. CBS MISSED OUT ON KEEPING A SHOW THAT WOULDHAVE, I THINK, ONLY GOTTEN BETTER. I will always remember that serial killer ep, or the Bruntouchables, or THE COMIC BOOK EP, OR THE BEST ONE. REBECCA ON NZT. Fuck them for taking this show away from us. ://////////////

[#012] Before I leave for Atlantic City...

...I thought I'd throw down a post! Because, why not.

i. I'm going to Atlantic City tomorrow! My best friends, for my birthday, are taking me there as a belated gift, and I'm so excited!!! I hadn't been planning on doing any trips of any sort until October, but they surprised me. :DDDDDDDDDD It kinda sucks that it'll be raining 2/3 of the days that we're there, but you know, whatever. We'll deal, lol.

(Here's where you can watch them: 1) Leaked NBC Midseason; 2) CW; 3) CBS; 4) ABC; 5) FOX; 6) ABC)
So. Here's some thoughts:
- Because certain trailers looked interesting, I am adding three more shows to the list of things I want to check out next season, despite not initially liking their logline. That would be Speechless (which I was kind of avoiding because I'm not a big Minnie Driver fan), Pitch (even though baseball is like the ONLY sport I can stomach watching), and Designated Survivor (because I typically don't like presidential shows). But yeah, the trailers actually looked good, which made me curious enough to at least check out the first episode.
- Shows that I'm both excited for and whose trailers were actually awesome? No Tomorrow, Frequency, Notorious, The Good Place. (Also, Making History and Powerless are on this list, but since they're midseason shows, we have a long way to wait before we get to check them out. SIGH.) Both CW trailers look really interesting, Frequency, I think, has loads of potential, but I am worried it may be one of those shows that needs to be only a season long and no more. No Tomorrow looks like fun! Notorious, I don't know why I'm super excited for this but this could be because I love Piper Perabo and I want her to succeed so hard. And lastly, The Good Place. I definitely did not know this show was going to be what it was, but HOLY FUCK IT LOOKS SO INTERESTING. It's taking place, basically in something equivalent to Heaven, and I'm just excited to see where it'll go.
- Shows that I'm worried about: Primarily Conviction. I want it to do so well, but I fucking hate Hayley Atwell's American accent in this. I think the concept is interesting, but the voice is actually grating enough for me that I'm not sure I can keep holding on to the show. But who knows! I AM JUDGING THIS SOLELY BY THE TRAILER. Maybe if I see the first episode, it'll only be jarring for five minutes, and then I'll be okay with it. (Or the opposite could happen, who knows.)
- I made a excel sheet where I timetabled my shows for next season (missing like 2 shows, I think and the fact that they're now bumping Pitch to fall), but guys. I now have 30 shows on this list. I really hope I drop some somewhere, because um, I don't know if I can have any sort of social life or even a work life with a schedule like this. (Check it out here! I watch too many shows on Tuesdays. Granted, I don't watch anything live anymore, mostly, but still. Fuck.)

iii. Bringing this back!
30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 03 – First fandom, the one that made you the fangirl you are today

I couldn't quite decide which one I wanted to go with for this. Because honestly? I think two fandoms shaped me: Sailor Moon first because really, that was the first fandom I was in without realizing I was in a fandom. Even though the participants that I knew about WHILE I was a huge fan was limited to my sister and my upstairs neighbor that introduced me to the show in the Japanese fanbase. My neighbor, who btw I LOVED SO MUCH as a kid, showed me the Japanese version, introduced me to a certain show in Chinatown where I convinced my mom to buy me tapes of the show as well as random merchandise, was an amazing fanartist, and just generally loved talking about it with me. My sister, AR, would draw with me, we'd make up fucking stories (FANFICTION, WITHOUT REALIZING IT) for the show, we would claim a Sailor Scout for ourselves (I was always Mercury, of course, and she was always Venus). And yeah, this was when I discovered I had a capacity to love something to this extent.

But it was really Digimon where I discovered fans and making things for people, and communicating with people. I wrote fanfiction, I talked to other authors who wrote fanfiction, I was in an RPG group that was Digimon related (which is still up on the internet and sometimes I go back and read and cringe, because I'm pretty sure my character's boyfriend's rp... person? wanted to write much filthier things between our charas, but I WAS SO INNOCENT BACK THEN so I never jumped at the chance to write anything smutty. WHICH IS SO WEIRD BECAUSE GUYS, OUR CHARAS WERE LIKE 13/14? MAYBE?). Anyway, I loved that fandom. That's when I discovered fanfiction to the full extent, because I loved reading it. (Shoutout to!) And that's something that still continues till today. So yes, I think these two combined really made me develop who I am in fandom now. :)
