many MANY thanks to the totally amazing milou_veronica for the layout and the step by step idiot proof instructions on how to set it up.  a thousand internet cookies for managing to combat my retardedness!

now if I can just manage to install a custom mood theme, I will have won the internets forever.

who am I kidding.  I'm lucky I can type.

you know all that not done-ness of two posts ago?  totally done now!  sent off the last little bits last night, and I got confirmation just now.  win!  now all I have to do is survive my interview on Wednesday, and I might actually have a shot of getting into grad school!

I think I'm growing up.  and it's not nearly as painful as I expected it to be.

schedule for today:
grocery shopping for the family
doctor's appointment
cooking dinner
cleaning the downstairs

I think my inner teenager is screaming at me right now, but I can't hear it over the nice sounds of the dishwasher.

because then I wouldn't have to go through this silly business about applying to jobs and grad schools and stuff.  I could just covertly run Torchwood.  of course, I would totally be "Shades of Ianto" Ianto, so that I would be covertly running the country too, but yes.  I want this stupid application process to be OVER.

fortunately, I'm done with it until the next round: scholarships!  blech.  and then finding out if any of the jobs actually want me, then interviewing....it's never done, is it?

so tired.  don't want to be an adult.  just want to be Ianto.

I'm almost done with finals.

my brain is made of jello.

you know how sometimes you can absolutely love someone to bits, but after a certain amount of time, their every little habit makes you feel like you're being dragged through a minefield of broken glass, while wearing a hairshirt?  I reached that point with my roommate yesterday.

intellectually, I know that I adore this girl, and that under normal circumstances, I would find everything she does enchanting and adorable.  because she's like the nicest person on the planet, really sweet, and very pretty.  right now, though, her constant waffling about her plans for going home for thanksgiving break (whether she's carpooling with us, whether she's not), how she takes twenty minutes to brush her teeth, and how she can't turn off her computer and go to bed until her boyfriend replies to her IM and says goodnight....on a good day I would probably find all of this endearing and quirky, but right now, I want to smack her.  and then leave.  for a long time.  and be in a room by myself where I can watch things on my computer and not use headphones.


all that having been said, I really do love this girl, and will probably go back to worshipping her feet in a few days.  or as soon as thanksgiving break is over and I haven't seen her for almost a week (come to me oh you blessed time of joy!).  seriously.  someone get me out of here.

on a nicer note, I'll be home on the saturday before thanksgiving.  go me!

yes, I know, computer literacy and me are like two unmixy things, but behold I can has formatting!  I think that two years of living with a computer science major, and three months of sink or swim iMovie lessons have really helped me out on this one.

so, here's the deal on me this past semester:  CRAZY TIMES!!!  things are batshit.  I'm super stressed, albeit less stressed than before the weekend, but still.  yes, videotaping four hours of nerf warfare did relax me, but there are some things that even nerf guns can't fix.

1. I could get real person published.  if I finish my thesis in time, it could get published in a book with other papers about the same thing (Doctor Who and philosophy, because I'm awesome).  yay!

2. I'm writing a screenplay, and a girl in my thesis class has offered to send it to her reads-for-a-studio sister when I'm done.  I love you girl I don't really know from my thesis class!  now I just have to finish the damn thing!

3.  grad school.  GREs.  senior year.  etc.

4. I'm not sure if this is actually stressful, but a point for irony that now that I've given up on dating for at least the rest of the semester, as I will be too busy, the boy of my dreams has noticed I'm alive.  yay?

I find it entertaining that all of this is happening NOW.

my assignment from my advisor for this week is to figure out what I'm doing for the rest of my life.

I know, I almost never post here, but I have some news for you all.

I've decided to take all of my useless knowledge about television and channel it towards something productive, namely educating other people. To do that, I've started another blog on this site: idiotbox_101

I'd really appreciate it if you all gave it a gander. I'm proud of it, and I really hope to keep it going for a long time. I'll update it with a new season review every friday, but I hope to add random things in between as well. Somewhere along in here, after all, I do need to write my everlasting love for Xander down!

So please check out idiotbox_101, that's where I'm hiding now. I'm keeping this journal open to spy on all of you and everything, but I doubt I'll update much more than usual.



got it?
