What am I up to lately?

Not a whole lot. School. Job hunting.

Getting pretty piercings. )

I was the demo bottom for a class on Decorative Play Piercing at an event this last weekend. It was fun. *evil grin*

Um, gonna watch the Packers kick ass in the Superbowl,

The internet has taught me many, many things. Most of them are awesome (html, photoshop tricks, a few comms). Some of them I wish I could erase from my brain (goatse, 2girls1cup, Myspace). The biggest thing?

No matter how pissed off you are, never publish a rant until after you've had time to cool off, look it over and possibly talk it over with someone impartial.

Case in point: This post right here by [livejournal.com profile] _dahne_.

While I don't agree with everything she said, I do agree with a few things. The major thing? Some people take the PC issue too damn far.

What happened to politeness and courtesy?

When did calling someone names and verbally or textually eviscerating that person for a more-than-likely unintentional mistake or slip-up become the acceptable social norm?

When did it go from "Hey, you shouldn't say that around here, we don't approve of it and here's why:" to "You ablist, elitist douchebag, take your white privilege and go fucking die, mmmkay."

When did it become right to tell someone that they couldn't be a POC/disabled/oppressed/wronged/etc because what you experienced wasn't as painful/hateful/wrong as what you experienced?

It's like those people on the one drama comm telling that woman that she couldn't a POC, even though she found out that one of her parents was, because she was raised white and didn't have to deal with racism and color boundaries. By that definition, my sister-in-law's adopted brother can't call himself Native American because he is being raised in a privileged white family in a privileged white neighborhood. And his birth mother still lives on the reservation.

Does this mean I can't call myself 'crazy' anymore? I've never been diagnosed and I'm not on meds.

Does this mean that saying my brother has a reading 'disability' is going to offend people because he's never been clinically diagnosed, except by the school counselor.

Does this mean that my family, as well-intentioned as they are in trying to learn about the issues, are transphobic because they don't completely understand trans and gender issues and the closest they've come to dealing with it is on television or through me talking about it? I know the differences and issues from talking with a dear friend and one of my former roommates, but my family? They're from small town Iowa, not a big city.

Seriously. When it gets to the point where people stop calmly and rationally explaining things to others, and start just throw around nasty names and labeling anyone who doesn't know every little aspect of an issue while trolling every comment and journal post they make, it becomes less about the issue, and more about who can be the biggest asshole to someone who made a mistake. When every little comment, word, THOUGHT is dissected and judged and labeled, whether right or wrong, it goes to far.

So, yeah, I agree with the heart of [livejournal.com profile] _dahne_'s post. If that means you don't want me on your flist, feel free to let me know in the comments, they will be screened.

First day of classes. Psychology at 8am. What the hell was I thinking? Algebra (yes, I'm trying AGAIN to pass this damn class) at 11am. Psych seems like it will be fun. Haven't been to Hell... eer, Algebra yet.

Got a Tues/Thurs class too. Slightly worried about it, since it's a financial class and the required book is the 'Wall Street Journal Guide to Personal Finance'. I couldn't find the chapter on getting bailouts.

Job interview today as well. As a 'Social Media Admin' for a local retail store. (My term, not theirs. The ad called for a 'Facebook Page person Admin Facebook Addict'. I think my renaming it is what got me the interview.

Need to start writing in this journal more. And I need for my allergies to go the hell away. Sniffling and sneezing during a job interview does not leave a good impression.

To top it all off, the bookstore is closed because they flooded last night due to a broken water pipe. Which means I can't return/exchange my MP3 player from the Mirror 'verse until Wednesday or Thursday when they reopen. (I call it that, because the LCD display is upside down and backwards. Works, just can't read it.)

I have a shiny new laptop. It is spiffy, and has a touchscreen mousepad (think that phone thing where you can make things bigger or smaller with your fingers. V.V.cool.), and a blu-ray player and a built in number pad and a 15inch screen and OMG I CAN PLAY WOW AGAIN.

yes. anyway. v.excited.

It just needs a name.

I'm seriously thinking about calling it Lex or Stark. Maybe Parker... but it might go crazy if I name it Parker.

I would be upset about my paid account running out, but I just realized that this is only the second post I've made in my journal this month.

Ooooh, got a virtual festive drink from [livejournal.com profile] sian265. Thank you very much, now if it were only real. :D

So, work has kind of eaten my soul. I get home, eat and basically stare at the television for an hour or so before passing out. It will be this way until after the first of the year.

It sucks.

In other news, I am contemplating writing HP fic. Mostly because I have the line 'Harry Potter is the Spencer Pratt of the Wizarding community' stuck in my head, and I kinda want to use it. I've pretty much got the fic planned out, just needs written.

After I slave away today, that is.

I just realized, I haven't posted in, like, forever. In fact, I've only posted once this month. Unheard of, except it's happened before.

Aaaaaaaaaaaanyway. Earlier this week, Monday in fact, I took my laptop to school because class didn't start until 4 and I was there at too damn early in the morning. Around 11, I stopped in the bookstore. They have this policy that you can't take bags into the bookstore and have to leave them in these cubbies by the door. Well, someone snagged by bag while I was ten feet away at the register.

So, my laptop was stolen, along with my wallet. Cards were shut down in less than ten minutes, serial numbers on the laptop were turned over to police and reports were faxed into HP. Not that it matters, because I know I'm not getting any of it back.

The thing that pisses me off the most? Not the theft (although, that pissed me off because damn near two years I've been leaving stuff there, and nothing has ever happened.), but the fact that the guy who stole my bag took it to the nearest mens room, took out my laptop and wallet, put the bag in the urinal and PISSED ON IT.

Stupid fucker. I hope he finds some diseases whore and his dick falls turns black and falls off. I mean, really, how fucking low of a human being do you have to be to piss on someone's bag after stealing their most valuable possessions?

Anyway, roommate has loaned me an 'older' tower she had sitting in the closet. Yeah, more like, DINOSAUR. I think this thing is actually from the Pleistocene era. 18gb harddrive, 1gb processor, only capable of holding 512mb ram... I'm surprised it can actually handle an ethernet connection.

Better than nothing though. That's what I keep telling myself. At least until I can afford a new laptop or tower.

Also, this little girl on SVU is creepier than the Fannings girls squished together with the non-existant child of Marilyn Manson and Gen from Genitorturers.

Since even though friends on both sides of the line know, but I don't think they intersect at all (which is really weird... LJ is small.)

[livejournal.com profile] skywardprodigal passed away yesterday, she had been ill for a while, but people though she was getting better.

It does help. I emptied the vacuum of dog hair five times just cleaning the living room and the loveseat. It's actually maroon, who knew. Now I'm cleaning off that heavy freaking bookcase/tv shelf in my room to pull out here. It should be fun. Desk and printer stand are set up in Di's old room, along with Reno. I think my bookshelves are gonna go in there and I'm going to have to get something to fill up wall space in the living room.

It's still too empty and quiet.

Like, really, really want?

I want Leverage/Marvel crossover where Deadpool and Eliot know each other, and are kinda buddies, and it's all Deadpool's fault that Eliot is wanted in Myanmar. Because the deal wouldn't have gone south if Wade Fuckin' Wilson had just kept his damn mouth shut for once.

Movieverse or Comicverse. [livejournal.com profile] justshai wants Movieverse. I prefer Comicverse, since, you know, there's that whole thing that happened at the end of the movie with Wade.

EDIT: Also? I want a Firefly/SPN/Leverage one. Where Sterling is actually Crowley having a life outside of eaten tailors and demons hunting him, and then in the future he becomes Badger and likes screwing with Mal's head because Mal kinda reminds him of Dean Winchester.

...yes, I'm strange. Like Parker, but without the nifty theivin' skills.

So, I posted this on Facebook earlier this week:

"One thing I hate is when parents let their kids be cruel and
nasty to other kids in the family, because the family isn't getting along. Kids
should be kept OUT of the fights, and the ones who say shit should be
reprimanded in some way. Letting a young child tell another in the family that
'she's not your grandma anymore and you can't call her that because she's my
rich grandma and loves me more than you' is WRONG."

After I posted that, I unfriended the sperm donor's girlfriend and her children.

Today, I cam home and found this:

The message I got: )

Yeah, this is it. I'm just... done with them. The sperm-donor, his thing and her spawn. I feel bad that I'm cutting out Olivia and GranJo, but one is going to be raised with this mindset and the other one believes every damn thing that comes out of the sperm-donor's mouth.

Tired. So very tired. I wish I could just take 3 weeks off of work, but that's not going to happen. Photography is gonna eat my soul, but in a way I like. And hey, I may end up setting up a dark room in my house.

I miss having a phone. :( So much. Hate this stupid one for work and can't do any fun stuff on it.

Wish the headaches would stop. It's starting to interfere with like, everything. And makes me even more tired. And things are a little fuckered with getting Di back to Omaha, but I'll figure it out. I always do.

well, to me anyway.

Anyone know of a GOOD dvd burning program that isn't this windows one? It's good, but I don't like that I can't put my own background for the menu, or that it takes 5 hours to burn a dvd.

Did all the fun stuff. Avast, Ad-Aware, Spybot, Malwarebytes, CCleaner, etc. Got the damn fucker, but then my computer didn't want to load up when I rebooted.

Literally NOTHING past the first windows screen for 5 hours, no matter what I tried or did.

Came to the conclusion that the OS was corrupted and had to reformat.

I don't mind losing the games and stuff. I can get the music and vids and movies and television shows again. The work stuff I'm not going to care about, I'm not really going to cry over losing the school stuff, and I'm pretty sure my tax stuff I can get off the H&R block website. I can redo my resume.

But I lost ALL my pics. I think I have a good portion on my LJ account or Photobucket, but so much hadn't been put up and is gone. Same with my fic folder.

I'm hoping I can find the cd I had a bunch of stuff saved on, because this is not how I wanted to clear stuff out.
