August 31st

Browsing Tumblr tonight, I came across a girl who was talking about a recent kidnapping victim. The victim is 15 years old and a female. The poster on Tumblr is of the opinion that the 15 year old victim did not dress appropriately for her age and that she should have known she could get kidnapped dressing like that. (The victim was last scene wearing a shirt with her midriff showing and a belly button ring.) The Tumblr poster, by the way, is a 17 year old girl. And let me tell you something. She is the scum of the earth. The worst sort of ignorant bitch that can exist. People keep calling her out on it, and trying to tell her why she is wrong. And she isn't listening. She's acting like a self-righteous bitch and I am furious, furious that there are people like her in this world. I hate it and I'm extremely angry tonight.

August 30th

If you've read The Fault In Our Stars - what do you think about dressing up as Hazel for Halloween? I kind of want to, but I'm worried some people might take it the wrong way.

I'm going to bed early tonight because I'm losing my damn mind up in here, fo realz.

August 29th

Every damn day sine I started working at the mall I've seen this sign, and now it's finally here - OOGUST 29TH. Does that mean I get to see a new sign when I go to work? I kinda hope so.

August 28th

I'm getting more and more tired, and I just keep working and I have no time to relax anymore. I'm behind on updating TNDP. The only time I have anymore is late at night, after work, and that's when I'm most tired. I don't need a day off - I need a week off. I need to recuperate and get stuff done.

August 27th

Late night working BUT I scored two perfumes for $10.00 each...I love knowing when stuff goes on sale so I can get it. :) I also ate some delicious Chinese food for dinner. ALSO I watched the season two finale of Face Off which was amazing! I'm very pleased with who won.

August 26th

Face Off is my favorite show right now. It's a competition based on special effects makeup (body painting, prosthetics, etc.) and it is so damn good, like scary good. There are aliens and fish and demon Wizard of Oz recreations. And the new season is airing now (Tuesday nights on SyFy!) so you should all watch it! I'm in love. :)

August 25th

More tired than I've been all week. Seven hour shift tomorrow. Pretty sure I'm just gonna go to bed now.

I do want some ice cream though, but I'm still full from dinner.

Maybe when my blog alarm goes off.

August 24th

I'm making progress in A Clash of Kings, I promise. But I tend to get tired after reading just one chapter, so it's a slow process.

I'm now going to do some laundry and eat some oreos, and then cozy up under the covers and read/fall asleep.

August 23rd

I work 38 hours this upcoming week. No days off, of course. And this is a part-time job. That's supposed to be about 20 hours. My feet hurt, I'm tired all the time, and to think I'm trying to get a second job! I'm just overwhelmed and AHHHH.

August 22nd

Sam Clafin as Finnick in Catching Fire? Oh yes. This is good.

We had snacks at work today! Cheetos, M&M's, all that jazz. It was amazing. I think I need some cereal now though, because snacks plus a Luna Bar isn't really dinner.

Once again, I'm tired and my heels hurt, so I think I'm going to go to sleep early. I can't find anything to do on the internet right now. Tumblr is slow, I've got one YouTube video left to watch in my subscriptions...I dunno. What do I do? My eyelids feel sleepy, but I'm not tired enough to go to bed.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

August 21st

Welp. I'm about ready to go to sleep now.

Maybe I'll read some ASoIaF first, Lexa? ;)

August 20th

My feet are SO tired and I work at least seven hours tomorrow. What am I going to doooo?

I intentionally don't have my computer here so I can read A Clash of Kings. Excitement!

August 19th

I'm thinking of being a volunteer for some sort of hotline, but I don't know which one would best suit me. I'm a bit afraid to do like a proper suicide hotline because I'd be terrified of saying the wrong thing and then the other person actually going through with it...but if you have any suggestions for something a little less life-or-death, please let me know!

August 18th

It's rainy. It's late. I want to go to bed and snuggle up under the covers and sleep until 11:00 tomorrow morning. But of course, I have to go to work.

I did some serious reading last night. I was up until 3:00. I want to do it again but I forgot my book at my mom's house.

Layout change is coming soon, I promise...sometime when I'm not exhausted from work.

Friday, August 17, 2012

August 17th

I work nearly 40 hours this week. I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself, but I'm gonna be tired. (Lexa, sorry if I don't finish A Clash of Kings soon - I'm working every evening asdfghjkl how.)

Blog layout makeover coming soon - get excited!

August 16th

I apparently am living in a household where I am not allowed to ask religious questions of my sister. Sorry, but if you're so passionate about your faith, why do you get so upset when I ask you a question about your beliefs? I just don't get it. Even my mom is defending my sister on this. Whaaat.

August 15th

Watching Game of Thrones with Lexa was beyond epic...even though it was the third time I'd seen that episode.

Updating TNDP all night now!

August 14th

Guess who has no internet? THIS GIRL. Thank goodness for smartphones with 3G. But that does mean no good entry tonight...I'll hopefully have internet tomorrow night though!

August 13th

Well, it has over 1,000 notes now. Who knew my silly little gifset would be a hit. Tumblr is so set of two pictures that I only applied PSDs to got more notes than the Snape/Lily gifset I spent two hours making. Sigh...I wish that gifset was popular. But I'm still really pleased about my Mewtwo set getting over 1,000 notes...maybe it'll keep going! Eeee!

Sunday, August 12, 2012

August 12th

People, we're almost at 800 notes. How did this happen?

The closing ceremonies were lovely...The Spice Girls were definitely the best part. I had a Spice Girls backpack in like first grade. Those were the days!

I get tomorrow off from work - hooray! And I'm going to see Brave with Dana! More joy!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

August 11th

You remember that Mewtwo gifset I posted awhile back? It's got over 500 notes on Tumblr. 200 are from today. I dunno which popular Tumblr reblogged it, but I'm excited.

Also tired from work. And for some reason I have to go in at 11:00 tomorrow morning even though I'm pretty sure my availability thing online says noon or later. Sigh.

August 10th

I'm totally pooped from work, and I'm sore too...and I work like six days this upcoming week. Ahhhh.

Your daily gif present from me:

August 9th

I made the saddest gifset ever last night. I couldn't even look at the last gif while I was making it, so I ended up holding paper over the computer screen so I couldn't see it. (It totally turned out well, because I apparently have mad Photoshop skillz.) Anyway, if you want to see that gif and the other like...ten I made last night, go to my Tumblr!

Here's a companion piece to the Baratheon gif I did last night, this time it's a Greyjoy one-

I'm in a gif-making mood tonight, so here's something for my Baratheon-loving friends:

August 7th

Lexa and I had an amazing four hour long Skype session last night. We talked about important things like scrunchies and Tim Gunn.

Work was brutal today and I'm super exhausted. I should probably try and be a normal human being and go to bed at a decent hour tonight.

August 6th

Today's thoughts, succinctly:

I've been 20 for a month now! How very odd to think of that.

I've got a task shift at work tomorrow and I'm nervous. If I have to do shipment, I'll actually be so depressed.

My doctor isn't returning my calls and I need her to write out a new prescription for my medication. I literally have one dose left. What do I do?

I have a Skype date with Lexa in 15 minutes! Yay! Never mind, she's calling now! Toodle-oo!

August 5th

I didn't do much today, so I don't have much to talk about. Um, TNDP is doing a book giveaway, so that's exciting. I've never done a giveaway before.

You guys should all be on Tumblr. It's the place to be.

August 4th

I just got home from seeing The Hunger Games with my mom. She hadn't seen it yet and I wanted to see it again and the tickets were only $3.00 so you really can't go wrong there. I actually ended up liking it a lot better the second time, because the first time I saw it was the day after I'd finished rereading the book so during the whole moving, I was making mental notes of the things that had changed. But this time I just sat back and enjoyed the movie!

I'm quite tired now after having some bizarre dreams last night that kept waking me up, so I think I'm actually going to go to bed now. I also might have to work tomorrow night, so I've got to be well-rested! It would be a four hour shift, which means no break. :(

May the odds be ever in your favor!

August 3rd, Esther Day

I wanted to share a Tumblr post I made today in honor of Esther Earl, a girl who passed away two years ago at just sixteen years old after a four-year battle with thyroid cancer.

Today is Esther Day and it celebrates her life and contributions to the Nerdfighter community. After Esther passed away, a really fantastic charity called This Star Won't Go Out was started to help families who are struggling with the expenses of having an ill child. Many people don't realize the massive expense that comes with having a sick child, but oftentimes at least one parent has to quit their job to stay at home and care for the child. This means less income, coupled with the crazy expensive medical bills from things like chemotherapy, pills, surgeries and more. So if you would like to help support this awesome charity, please check out and considering donating. You can also do what I did and buy a super awesome wristband for only $5.00 - all the proceeds go to This Star Won't Go Out!

Here's the Tumblr post:

Happy Esther Day, Nerdfighteria
Today, on this Nerdfighter holiday celebrating the life of Esther Earl, I want to talk to you guys about community. We as Nerdfighters are lucky enough to be a part of a welcoming, active, charitable community, and I think that’s pretty incredible. One thing that Esther talked about in a few of her videos was this awesome community and how when she was alone in her room, she wasn’t truly alone because of all the friends she had online.
A lot of people discredit online friendships, saying that your friends online aren’t “real” friends because you haven’t met them. I think that’s absolutely stupid. By having that stance, you are dehumanizing the person at the other end of the friendship by implying that they are somehow less than worthy as a friend simply because they are not physically present. Countless times, lives have literally been saved by online friends and even strangers responding to a cry for help posted on Tumblr. Online relationships can be extremely meaningful, sometimes even more so than face-to-face ones.
This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about making this project a success. Bringing people together with even just one commonality (in this case, an awesome nerd-tastic community) can change people’s lives for the better forever.
I am so grateful that Esther was also passionate about the realness of online friendship, and she is evidence that online friends can be the best of friends. So in honor of Esther, reach out to someone online today. Make a friend in this community. They can live right by you or half a world away, it doesn’t matter. This community is a force to be reckoned with an we should utilize that to its fullest.

AMERICA EFF YEAH. So pleased with the result of the gymnastics finals - go Gabby! She seems like a sweet girl.

I'm obsessed with my cats, it's unhealthy.

August 1st

Happy August! It's weird to think this isn't back-to-school month for me. But hey, hopefully I'll be getting a second job soon and I'll be too busy to think about school. But right now my feet hurt like crazy from work. I may switch my hours up a bit to work my current job on weekends and my new job on weekdays. We'll see how it all pans out!
