Holy Responsibility, Batman

I have spent a delightful almost-week suffering from the flu. I will never complain about being sick in winter again, because having the flu in 29 degree heat is miserable.

I also reached two milestones – I applied to two universities for next year (COFA and SCA – Bachelor of Visual Arts) because despite having my self-esteem regarding my drawing systemically beaten out of me during my last three years of high school, I’m not a bad illustrator and with a bit of training, might be able to do something with it. (High school also tried to squash my belief in my writing abilities. However, years of fan fiction writing has resulted in my writing-ego being of titantium strength. I can write rings around anyone. I blame all the adults praising my Buffy-writing 11 year old self. I was a precocious little scamp.)

I applied for a retail job I never ever thought I’d get… and I got an interview. On one hand, yay, job! Money! Independence! On the other hand, I hate stupid people, and someone who treated me pretty badly in the past works there.

But when I remember that, I also remember I’m an ironclad bitch these days, in comparison to five years ago, so I’ll be fine. Somehow I evolved from sad-kitten-person to honeybadger.

I just wish I had enough money to buy myself some ironclad-bitch shoes to wear to the interview. It would make me feel better.

I think maybe the cold is restricting oxygen to my brain. Just FYI.

Bits & Pieces

Well, I came back from Hawks Nest early because the place was boring and I needed an internet connection to do my homework. So, I’ve been on my own since Tuesday. And this house is quite scary when you’re alone. ::whimpers:: But Dad’s on the train home today, so it’s all good. I just need to clean up and get dressed and stuff before 3 p.m. ::glances uneasily at clock:: I can do it. Just need to make some updates and stuff.

I got a new fanlisting! Dark Angel episode 10 “Art Attack”. I’m calling it “Professionals.” I really must get that done today and update my fanlistings. Maybe I can apply for a Lizzie McGuire episode too. That would be cool.

Oh! Oh! I found the posters for The Matrix Revolutions! If you aren’t afraid of a little spoiler, click heres and begin your worship! Only… um, 27 days until it’s at the cinema! ::dances wildly:: Wow, that sounds dirty…

Well, I have absolutely nothing left to babble about. Well, actually, I leave my babbling for my livejournal. I’ve finishing thinking coherent thoughts.

October’s Here

I┬ácannot believe it’s already October. Man, time flies when you’re buried under a pile of fanlistings. Hehe

Well, I’m going away tomorrow. I know, you’ll all miss me for the entire seven days I’m gone. But never fear! Mum rented me a laptop for a week – so I can do “school work” *giggle* Hell no. I’ve got some fic that badly need updating, and yeah, I will have to do some school work, I suppose. I mean, I had to get a new text book for my Geography assignment and it cost Mum almost $50, which means I’ll actually have to use it. Damnit.

Well, anyways, I went to Chatswood in Sydney on Wednesday and had my hair done. It actually looked good. Now, two days later? Not so great, but oh well. All good things come to an end, infinitely sooner than we’d like. Anyway, I went to Alannah Hill and got the most beautiful bracelet (also leading to my current state of broke-ness). It’s gold with little pink diamontes. And I got a new notebook. That’s it. Amellia got the Hilary Duff CD which rocks, but I’m broke, so I’ll have to wait till my birthday, damnit.

Okay, technical stuff. My fanlisting collective is up – presenting Wicked. And I have way too many fanlistings to get done this weekend *sigh*. I have to build Zane, Zane’s Garage, Art Attack and Jondy/Zack *moans pathetically* Fanlistings are more addictive than crack cocaine. Well, I’ve never had crack cocaine, but I bet it’s not as addictive as fanlistings.
