So tired, but I can't get to sleep for the life of me. It's very annoying because in about four or five hours I'm supposed to get up and babysit a three year old and a baby. Luckily, they're generally well behaved most of the time so hopefully that'll be that case this time.

My sleeping schedule is just ridiculously fucked up though. Haven't been able to get to bed at a decent hour for days and I kinda want to kill something. Maybe I can make a deal with a magic entity/god and go on a quest for sleep powder with no nasty side effects? Cause I really wouldn't mind slaying nasty beasts/taking cure of a far off realms problems/teaching the cure to toe fungus if it got me some decent sleep. I'd offer you my first-born but I've watched Labyrinth too many times.

Also, do I just have a face that says "I will totally listen to all your problems and provide sage advice on how to fix them"? Because apparently I do lately. It's probaly what I get for wearing a shirt that offers free hugs... *is baffled* But I routinely get people who sit down at my Starbucks table and after I do the polite bit of saying hi and and asking how they are, they proceed to answer honestly. I really have no idea why. And because I'm crazy I do my best to sort them out. Oy. Never let it be said life is boring. Though I think some of the staff have bets on whether my study sessions are going to turn into therapy sessions...

I kind of love this to a ridiculous extent. It's absolutely brilliant.

So I've got a good lead at the local sweet shop which sounds like it'll be perfect if I get it. They need someone from noon to five and I'm pretty sure the manager likes me. Always Knew that me lovely wit and dubious charm would serve me well one day. May also help that I'm good at dealing with screaming kids, which, being a sweet shop they seem to get a lot of. This can only be good for my chances.

There's also the possibility of a lead at Subway, but I really like Sweet Treats better as far as my options go. I mean, who doesn't love chocolate? *shrugs* Really, though, I'm kinda getting to the point that I'll take whoever will hire me. I'll take what I can get because I'm just so bored waiting for my next class to start up. Which reminds me, I need to call and ask what book the prof wants me to get so I can try and find it cheap somewhere... Though considering it's an anatomy class that's probably not too likely.

Also have been looking into Zen and Tao which are very interesting. I kinda don't want to give the books I took out on them back to the library. *sigh* Will just have to put them on my to buy list along with all those other things I'm planning on doing once I have money again. I'm also thinking of picking up tarot just because it looks interesting. Hm. We'll see.

Also have been attempting to read the Bible for the first time despite having claimed to believe in it for the majority of my life. It. doesn't. make. sense. Seriously. Why that hell did God not take Cain's offering but accepted Abel's? I mean, it's not like he said anything about veggies not being worthy sacrifices that I could see. I mean, I know my church attaches significant symbolic type stuff to this concerning Jesus being the sacrificial lamb and such for our sins and that Abel's offering is supposed to signify this, but it was the beginning of the world. I kinda doubt that there was precedence for this yet, ya know? Bah, this is what I get for expecting things to make sense. Still, the creation of the Earth bit was pretty darn cool, I'll give it that.
sweetgadget: (not good)
So had my job interview today. I don't think it went well. At all.  But I think everybody thinks that. I still think it went horrible though.

Stupid lack of job experience. Meh.
sweetgadget: (glad you're not dead)
I'm alive! My paper is done and I'm alive and slightly loopy from paper stress. But. Still. It's done! So ha! *grins*

And I'm gonna need a lot of caffeine to get through today awake. But oh well. At least the freaking paper is done. Now all I have to do is make use of all the extra credit and I might pull through this class with a B. Why I need a psychology class to learn how to massage peoples backs I will never know. It's basically a class about how people's minds work wrapped up in funny terms. My gran could probably teach it and it'd be about the same, it'd just have more common sense to it.

Now, if only that Supernatural fic idea will leave me alone until I've caught up on seasons four and five I will be set. *beats off plot bunnies with a stick*

Am currently very annoyed with myself. Seriously, self? Why didn't you look at your syllabus? Why? Cause now you only have a week to do that huge paper that you haven't touched. Much less thought about. Which makes you kinda dumb. And a little bit panicky.

And then there's that exam that's coming up that you forgot about too. For the same class. *headdesk*

I really should try getting a calendar someday. That way, maybe I'll actually remember things for once. *shrugs and sighs* It's worth a try at least.

*gets back to work*
sweetgadget: (pretty princess sam)

Which is just so weird! You think you're going to be stuck there forever doing the same old thing and dealing with this thing that is not so secretly trying to suck the life out of you. And then, BANG! It's over and you are left to freak out over what the hell you're going to do next.

Meep. It's just kind of crazy really. It's the point of your life that you always knew you'd reach somehow, someday. But it's the someday bit of that that's key. Someday is just this far off nebulous nothing. It has no bearing on you and you in don't to save the world from it or anything like that. It's just something that eventually will be.

In other news I start up community college next month which is going to be all kinds of interesting. Since you know, freshmen = fresh meat. Still it should be fun. I really need to work on getting a new job. Currently the library or Conney Island is looking good. Failing that, Taco Bell is looking for new people again.

So let's go out and get work! *resolve face*

old lovers, with history

your eyes are like stars going out (one by one their twinkling is snuffed by unforgiving hands)
your colours go to darkness (pulled at the egdes by little plucking fingertips)
your pale belly is torn red shreds (prodding fingers pulling at your insides, they spill, like brightly coloured ribbons ready to play dress-up)
you are a treasure chest
which I can
close at my will
(pulling out pieces of my prize and putting them back. my fingers left slick with the feel of it. i like the feel of this chest)
swaying back and forth, i kneel beside you, buried in you up to the elbows (my fingers wrapped round your ribs, clutching at your too quick heart)
We could be like old lovers, you and i (were it not for the history pulling us down and down and down to the bottom of the sea)
if i choke on your breath, my fingers scrabbling at you lungs-
does it make you bitter? the way I take you down with me?-
I know the lay of you, my little darling
I know the lay of you, my little dear
I know the lay of you, all. the. way. through
sweetgadget: (tough)
Really hope that we get a snow day tomorrow, it's looking like a pretty good chance of one though. I could really use one. I'm so tired lately, senior year is starting to get to me. I need more sleep or something is gonna give and it might just be my sanity. Shouldn't have taken so many A.P classes then maybe it would have been easier to stay on top of my other not A.P classes and I wouldn't have tanked them. *sigh* Too late for that now. I'm just gonna have to take the consequences in stride. It's a good thing the college I'm planning on going to doesn't have a required GPA to get in or I'd be completely screwed.

In other news I'm trying to think of a writing challenge for the D.B.C.A for Valentine's to make up for my absence there lately. I'm thinking murder mystery or something along those lines just to keep in line with our usual resistance to conformity. Or I could just put together a bunch of prompts with V-day having to be the common setting...I'll probably do a mix of the two, even though the murder mystery would probably work better in the Ballroom... I'll probably have it all put together by the weekend, sooner if there's that snow day.

sweetgadget: (good times)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Eh, I'm not much of a v-day fan myself, mainly 'cause I find it annoying how sickly sweet the whole thing can get. But the day /after/, now that's my kinda holiday.

Go Discount Chocolate Day! *grins*

"Marionettes are like music boxes. But, whereas a marionette can be cut loose, a music box can only stop turning. I wonder which one is more free? The stringless puppet, or the motionless dancers?" - unknown

I personally think that the motionless dancers are more free.

What do you think?

So, for Christmas I got a robe, tis a very nice robe with many lovely robely qualities. Such as it being fuzzy and warm. The second being more important then the first. I also kinda of drown inside of it, but that is what makes it so perfect, all the extra fabric just means more warmth for me! *grins*

Though I do have one problem with it. I have absolutely no idea what colour it is. Serious. It keeps changing depending on the light. One moment it's a deep reddish colour and the the next it's dark purple and from there it goes to burgundy... I think I'm just gonna call it repurgundy. Except that is a really ugly sounding word.

Hmm... I'm gonna have to think on this.

In other news the new semester begins tomorrow, so yay for that. Changes are always nice and so are classes that are relevant to my chosen career thingy also known as a social worker. So go, new classes, go! Also, have read P&P&Z. Colour me not impressed people. I think that I would have been perfectly fine with it if it hadn't been for all the sex jokes that were everywhere. Very annoying. Still, the zombies did make for a fun addition even if you can't use it to replace the original.

sweetgadget: (feel not think)
Hey, lookie! I've got something that's not fanfic. *does a little dance* I feel so original. *grins*

Congratulations on being the creator of a new

Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: World Domination.
Your motive is a little bit more complex: Revenge
Stage One

To begin your plan, you must first kidnap a chosen one. This will cause the world to sign up for life insurance policies, baffled by your arrival. Who is this despoiler of all that is good and nice and true? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good as an elemental?

Stage Two

Next, you must seize control of the internet. This will all be done from a abandoned church, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will die in a way you just don't want to think about, as countless hordes of computer programmers hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three

Finally, you must send forth your armies of destruction, bringing about an unending cacophony of screams. Your name shall become synonymous with sheer dementedness, and no man will ever again dare interrupt your sentences. Everyone will bow before your cunning intelligence, and the world will have no choice but to elect you dictator for life.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'd have to say either the Doctor from Doctor Who or Skulduggery Pleasant from the Pleasant books.

The first because the Doctor is a very interesting person as well as being highly intelligent and funny. It'd just be a lot of fun. Plus, TARDIS. I think think more needs saying there.

And Skulduggery because he'd be great to talk to and banter with. Plus, you have to love the sarcasm and the magic.

Congratulations on making Ravenclaw!

Well you're one smart little cookie, aren't you? You're wise and clever, and just love to use your wit and learning to your advantage, and sometimes even the disadvantage of others. Well, nerd, there IS a world outside of that copy of 'Hogwarts: A History', you know.. Oh don't worry! We all know you're special. You're just a naturally good learner, right? Not too much is known about your house right now.. Wow! Not only are you intellegent, you're also an enigma!
