float_on_alright: take my advice i'm not using it (take my advice)
This was the journal entry from last night that I deleted instead of posted last night:

I am exhausted. This week was crazy as hell and today was like busy if it decided to take amphetamines at work. I had one customer who was really upset about some stuff but otherwise the day was really good and I’d rather focus on that. Being busy meant that I was on the phone about the most I’ve been on the phone in a single day since the beginning of the year and I ended up having some really good conversations and that always makes me happy. I was talking to this principal that was enthusiastic and receptive to ideas and that’s just the best in my line of work.


But what I am most excited about is the Grimm season finale. I spent most of it incredibly stressed and VERY UPSET with the writers because HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO ME???? But then the end was so good and made me happy and I was just so, so pleased. They didn’t let me down! I’ll definitely want to watch the end again though I have no idea how much of the rest of it I can manage because like I said - STRESSFUL. But THE END! Oh gosh. I’m just so very happy about it.


I also watched the season finale of Sleepy Hollow. I don’t know if it will be back after this season. I loved, loved, LOVED Nicole Beharie and I was devastated to see her go but I did end up enjoying several of the new characters they brought in. The plot was a little hokey (more so than the other seasons) but I was shipping the hell out of Jake and Alex and they had such a lovely moment in the finale. They definitely did weird shit with Molly, but I ended up liking it and the way the Witness “mantle” sort of shifted/sort of didn't was interesting to me. The very end when they reveal the next “issue” was, to my mind, a smart move. They didn’t 100% resolve things. Crane’s son is out there and still the Horseman of War but they had a moment which was nice and Crane definitely will have to find a way to get out of his deal with The Devil at some point. But the end had a sense of hopefulness that I don’t think other season finales in the show have had. If the show does come back they have a place to pick up the plot but if they don’t the last episode leaves you hopeful for the future.


In some ways it reminds me of “Gone with the Wind”. So the movie and the book end with Rhett and Scarlett not together but Scarlett is so determined that she's going to get him back that you feel like she is going to figure it out. Scarlett, while not always likable or admirable, is one of the most determined characters in literature. Everything she’s put her mind to in the book thus far she’s pretty much gotten (with the exception, perhaps, of getting to marry Ashley) and you know that she’s going to get Rhett back. That’s how I felt about the Sleepy Hollow finale. Like they conquer whatever was thrown at them.

1) Read "Hunger Games" for Book Club.

2) Finish the 3rd part of "You're to Blame" or all the parts of my table, preferably both, but realistically that's likely to be too much. 

3) Write at least as much in March as I did in February. 

4) Work on the money situation. 

5) Say yes to one social-able invitation that includes more than book club, fellowship, or friends who live in a different area, preferably involving people who you have not hung out with socially in the past.  I will null this if the only invitation is to go on a date with a guy I'm not comfortable saying yes to. I do need a good reason to not be comfortable, though, no offense meant to any one who has them, but having children counts - I'm not ready to be in dating situation that involves children. It is important that I stay out of the lives of children I cannot, at this time in my life, commit to. Also, this does not require me to say yes to people I don't like, such as Wendy, who makes me angry but seems to think we're friends. 

6) Make it so that you aren't the only one who can see the improvements in your living spaces. 

7) Finish at least one, preferably two alphabet challenge books. 

8) Decide of pointless posts like these count towards writing, and if so how to include them in the count... If they do count, require the word count for March be higher than that of February by at least 500 words.

Dear Lord in Heaven, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm not sure I want you to fix it. At this moment in time, I am very much enjoying the insanity I have been blessed with. 

Night y'all!

Dear Hawaii Five-0,

I love you. You have done to me what nothing else ever could (turned me into a fanfic reader, writer, and slasher - and nothing else has been able to do any of that in the time since I discovered the existence of fanfic in 1997.)
 
Please make every ep like Ma Ke Kahakai. 
It's not just the fangirls who think it was awesome either. Really, really. Everyone else watching loves the bromance too!

(Bromance MY ASS, those boys were on a DATE. They were celebrating their anniversary and that's why Chin and Kono were working at the office when Danny and Steve were hiking. Danny hearts Steve. Steve re-broke his arm to protect Danny. Of course next week, Steve will be making eyes at Jenna and/or Kono or calling Catherine and Danny will be expressing his undying love for Rachel and vowing to win her back, but for now I'm going to enjoy this gift from the canon to us fangirls.)

Thank You <3 <3 <3

 I hate me so much right now.

:D

On another note, both of my parents are now reading my other livejournal. WHAT HAVE I DONE??

I like Merlin, pretty well, I mean it can be a little cheesy, but overall its a lot of fun. Magic, knights, dragons, love, humor, hot guys, pretty dresses, and a totally anachronistic historical setting - you get the idea. I know many people who watch the show 'ship Arthur/Merlin and I can see why, though I actually really like Gwen/Arthur myself. 

At any rate, I was watching the episode that aired on Scy-Fy on 2/5/11 called Gawain where they (duh) introduce Gawain and I have to say, I really want to see more of him. And yes, they showed him flirting over the top with Gwen and it was cute. Now I am new the fanfic versions of subtexts and slashes, but (imho) chemistry between Merlin and Gawain was instantly explosive. It doesn't look like he's going to be a permanent fixture (at least not yet) but hopefully they'll bring him back for an episode or two like they have done with Lancelot. I also hope that they bring back the same actor because I don't know if the chemistry would the same if it were a different actor. 

I'm sad that Gawain probably isn't going to be a new permanent character any time soon though, because once you start seeing a 'ship, you want the characters on screen together.

Uuuuuggghhhhhh, I so wanted to write something today, but that didn't really work out how I'd planned. I mean it was a good night, a really good night actually, but not the one I was expecting. I got next to nothing done. Booo. I need to go bed, but I don't wanna. 

Ta-tas!

If only I could make "real life" a priority in my life. If I had half the motiviation I have for writing fan fiction and obsessing about Harry Potter for going back to school, assuming I got into grad school, I could probably knock it out in two years. Buuuuuuut, no, I have more important things to do than retake the GRE, like puzzling out this little plot bunny that has taken over my brain involving the "original" mistletoe in WH13 and what would happen if it got into the wrong hands (and by wrong hands, I mean Claudia's).
