NEWS!

Biggest bit of news: I graduated from SCAD. \o/ This is awesome, obviously, but I already have mixed feelings because damn, I miss school. Well, not yet, but it hasn't sunk in that I won't be going back, so I feel like I still have classes to take, you know? I feel like it's just summer break. But I graduated, I won't be going back (not there, anyway; if I go to grad school at some point, it'll be somewhere else). [livejournal.com profile] undersea Came down a few days before and stayed with me, and we got to sit next to each other during the morning ceremony, which was really cool. Our families also got to meet, we all hung out and had dinner together, and our moms got along like... well, pick a similie.

My grandparents on both sides also came down, and we stayed at a beach house on Tybee Island after I moved out of my apartment (bye, great apartment! bye, independence! ;_____;), and from there my mom and I went up to Atlanta for a week or so to get all my stuff and a couple cars shipped to Seattle. The cars arrived a couple days ago and the rest of my stuff arrived today, and I haven't unpacked at all. For the time being, I'm just at home, job hunting. I don't know how long term I'm staying here... O.o Hopefully not TOO long, because wow, I already miss living alone/with roommates as opposed to my parents, lol.

Additions to the family: I got a puppy!! This has been several months in the making, but it wasn't a sure thing until I finally talked to my family about it right around graduation, when he came available to adopt. He was seized in a hoarding case or something and was basically tied up in legal stuff until the case finally closed--earlier than expected, which meant my sister had to adopt him for me right after graduation before I got to Seattle (I thought I would be home by the time he was available). He's a little long-haired chihuahua, VERY fluffy, black and white with black around his eyes that makes him look kind of pissed off all the time, even though he's the happiest little puppy ever. (I keep saying puppy, but he's like 2 years old. Just tiny.) I (re)named him Jack, and I call him all sorts of stupid, ridiculous names, and he got used to me pretty fast, sticks to me like glue, all that sort of stuff. \o/ My sister's also getting a new puppy (in addition to Dazzle and Peanut, who both live with her at school already), but she won't be available to adopt until August. LOTS OF DOGS. Fortunately, she goes back to school (with all three dogs) in late August, which will leave me with just Jack.

Fandom news! The biggest fandom news is that I have a new fandom now. Supernatural! Which I haven't posted about AT ALL, because I have basically avoided livejournal for MONTHS. I haven't even been on except to read fic, pretty much. Haven't even read my flist. /o\ I'M SO SORRY, I want to do better about that. Twitter's basically my main social outlet at the moment, even though half the shit I read there annoys me these days. lol

BUT, SUPERNATURAL. AND SPN RPS. So here's how it went[livejournal.com profile] sulwen came to visit me in Savannah over spring break (St Patrick's Day, yay parade and drunkeness!) and forced me to watch the pilot episode. I was immediately hooked and we watched all the way into season 2 before she left. Then after she left, I continued watching NONSTOP until I caught up with the middle of season 7, which I watched as it aired. And until I had to pack up my TV, I KEPT watching spn nonstop, rewatching my favorite episodes and sequences of episodes and rewatching my favorites AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, and right now I'm going into WITHDRAWAL. Luckily the CW and TNT both have iPad apps that can stream episodes, I just can't choose which episodes I wanna see. BUT I DON'T EVEN CARE RIGHT NOW, I just need my spn fix.

Dean is pretty much my favorite character on TV now. There's lots of thinky-thought reasons, but one very superficial reason is that Jensen Ackles is seriously pretty. I got my Jensen fix last night as I made my parents watch Ten Inch Hero (which has become my feel-good movie, and my mom enjoyed it too, yay). So that leads me to SPN RPS! Jensen and Jared as a fic pairing are as happy and fluffy as Sam and Dean are angsty and fucked up, it's pretty great. I've been reading SO MUCH FIC, lots of rps while I was still catching up with episodes, and I just recently started reading actual plotty spn fic now that season 7 has ended. SO MUCH ANGST. SO MUCH KINK. SO MUCH EXCELLENT, AMAZING FIC. Seriously, some of the fic I've read recently has been the best fic I've EVER READ. In any fandom. I had no idea the fic would be this good. I love it. Annnnnnnd I got into the fandom/finished school just in time for the gigantic spn_j2_bigbang to start posting. \o/!!! I love Sam and Dean and John and Jared and Jensen and Jeff and Misha and just EVERYBODY, it's all amazing and I'm so so so so happy rolling around in a new to me fandom.

Other fandom news: I've seen Avengers several times and LOVED IT, and Clint/Hawkeye is my favorite (UNF HOT) and he needs his own movie okay. I've been reading some good Clint/Natasha and I've always loved Tony Stark so I like him in fic, and Clint/Loki is some fucked up awesomeness. Haven't done a lot of exploring in that fandom, though, just read what I've seen recced. Other fandom stuff: Adam's album is amazing and I love it (I don't think I ever talked about that, SORRY LIVEJOURNAL), and I may be in the minority but I fucking love Tommy with his pink hair. I love Tommy full stop, really, but you already knew that. :D MCR is fairly quiet, which means my epic mcr feelings are fairly quiet at the moment, but Frank on twitter continues to be a delight, so that's always a good thing.

Plans for the foreseeable future include: seeing Brave now that my sister is back from Cuba, seeing Avengers again with her, seeing other movies as they come up, forcing my family to watch spn so I can talk about ALL OF MY FEELINGS aloud, and search for jobs. Search for a gazillion jobs. SIGH. I also want to get back to writing. My film is done, I just need to get those DVDs ready to send out, and I finally have some time to go back to writing, YAY. I have so many things planned with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen, you guys have NO IDEA. :DDDD

Missed you guys. Gonna try to get back in the habit of reading my flist and posting updates here. But really, if you wanna keep up with me, follow me on twitter. @silentdescant!

birthday!

silentdescant: (we'll love again and we'll laugh again)
I pretty much celebrated my birthday already; day before yesterday with my friends, and yesterday with my parents. Today, cousin Mark is tagging along to see the Blue Angels, and we're going to do touristy things with him until our dinner reservations, so that'll be fun. (And then I'll come home and have another online concert party, omg.) So, I did presents last night, and it was very very low-key (meaning instead of wrapping paper, it was shipping boxes): NEW HEADPHONES! They're super awesome DJ type headphones, and my old ones broke so I've been wishing for new ones since I went to Oregon. \o/ Also: the sequel to Havemercy, Shadow Magic. I'm rereading Havemercy and I haven't gotten very far yet, so it'll be a little while before I even start Shadow Magic, but exciting nonetheless. And finally: updated version of Final Draft, which is a scriptwriting program that I've been wanting back on my computer. I haven't had it since my other laptop died, and now that I'm taking a scriptwriting class, I'm kind of going to need it, lol.

Last night... Last night, oh my god, you guys, that was amazing. I mean, it would've been amazing if I'd been looking at stuff all on my own, but with... what, how many of you? several, idk! anyway, with all of you guys there, either on twitter or lj or gchat, that just made it spectacular. ♥ I love you guysssss. My hands were srsly shaking at some point, and my face got stuck in this expression: :DDDDDDDD Same time tonight? I've got the group chat thing figured out now, so if you want to join in on that, my gmail is silentdescant, and if you're online tonight, I'll add you.

Now that I've got the mushy part out of the way, I can move on to the superficial: FRANK SHAVED AND HAS AN AWESOME GUITAR AND CONTINUES TO BE MY FAVORITE. MIKEY AND TORO WERE CRAAAZY INTO IT. GERARD HAD A FUCKING TAMBOURINE. BOB! (Bob needs to show up in more pictures. :\ BUT STILL, HE WAS THERE AND THAT'S WHAT COUNTS.) CORTEZ IN THE BACKGROUND! ALL THE WIVES AND FRIENDS IN ATTENDANCE! NEW SONGS (which I want to heeeeear)! OPENING WITH GIVE 'EM HELL, KID! ENDING WITH HELENA! &THIS BAND;

this day!

1. i stayed up until 4am. WHY? whyyyy? i was writing shit, and it really is shit, it's completely self-indulgent crap that i don't even want to show anyone, and like, it was 2 and then i looked up and it was 3 and then i looked up again and it was 4 and i was like FUCK THIS, I NEED SLEEP. and therefore slept until 10:30 with an eyemask on because it was already getting lighter and fucking birds were ALREADY CHIRPING at 4am and so when i took it off, i was nearly BLINDED because even though it's overcast today, it's still BRIGHT AS FUCK. happily, i had a snuggly fluffy sleepy lump next to me. (side note: mcr, pls post pictures of various dogs in various guitar cases FOREVER.)

2. i just kept pressing snooze and only really woke up because i got a phone call. from my friend, who is in the recital, and who will be the only good thing about probably humiliating myself today. i've only been practicing this song for like, a week and a half, and i have it memorized again, but it's not... great. and i'm going to be wearing bright hot pink shirts and gigantic fuck-off heels that hurt my feet, and tights that undoubtedly make my thighs look huge, and a miniskirt. IS THAT 80s ENOUGH FOR YA? i've resigned myself to looking like an idiot, but i am going to OWN IT, BABY, and be comforted by the fact that the other costumes will be much more ridiculous than mine.

3. apparently some mcr fan has been spamming the entire band with a link to her fanfic, and she finally got one of them to respond. ray. i saw that and nearly died of motts, not even joking. and then i clicked it, saw gerard's name at the top, and was absolutely horrified. RAY, I'M SO SORRY. he actually read it, i think. I COULDN'T EVEN READ IT. i was too overcome by the motts. i just made disgusted noises and flapped my hands at my computer and tried to erase it from my brain. perhaps ray did the same.

4a. my dad and i watched the top gear goes to america episode, and i love watching top gear with him 'cause it actually makes him laugh for real, and it's so hilarious. i love top gear.

4b. since tomorrow's father's day and i don't have any kind of present at all, and my mom and sister are going to be gone all day, maybe i could take my dad out to see the hangover? it's the only movie i can think of that would be good. he's already seen star trek, we went to angels & demons a week or so ago, and UP is more of a whole-family type movie. and transformers = hell no. but i've heard good things about hangover. whaddya think?

4c. tomorrow is also my BBB POSTING DAAAAAAAY. so exciteddddddddd. omg, i'm so freaking excited, you don't even know. well, [livejournal.com profile] giddy_london probably knows. i am so happy with the fic, and the ART, and the MIX (which i have been listening to like, NONSTOP) and ahhhhh i am so ready to post this shit.

5. how completely ADORABLE is this? :D :D :D and i won! i was not expecting that at all. i almost didn't put my name in, that's how much i was not expecting to win. hahahaha. ♥____♥

ignore the fucked-up-ness of my layout right now. i got a CSS stylesheet and then tried to edit it and.... well, let's just say it would go way faster if i knew what the hell i was doing. just pretend it looks normal. hopefully it will by the end of this week. ANYWAY.

i finished my first drawing project. this picture isn't actually the finished thing, but my camera ran out of batteries on sunday, and the changes i made after this picture was taken are really small detail things that you probably can't even notice, and i'm impatient, SO. here's a picture. what do you think? click for full size.

picture and stuff behind the cut )

i had tons of fun with [personal profile] giddy_london  while she was here this weekend. we stayed up laaaaaaate talking nonstop and stuff., and had really great food at a place called Corleone's and some not-so-great food at a burger joint that's usually better than that, srsly. anyway. fangirling in person! it's awesome.

also, i'm kind of in the mood for adorable!frank, especially after watching videos of pencey today. and leathermouth @ bamboozle last night, but for entirely different reasons. FRANK, SHAVE YOUR FACE, WTF.

fraaaaaaaaank )

now i need to go down to the lab and do my film project, which is going to turn out shitty because it's due tomorrow and i didn't really have the resources or the motivation to do it properly.

look at me!

CHECK OUT MY JOURNAL LAYOUT! it was stressful, oh so stressful, as I fear change of this magnitude, but I LIKE HOW IT'S COMING OUT! it still needs some tweaking, and I'm not sure how I feel about the bright blue link color, but but but, it's DIFFERENT, and I'm OKAY WITH THAT. it will definitely take some getting used to, though. I've had that other style for like, 2 years or something, idek.

I have Gerard and Lindsey in my header and that is pretty awesome. the text was done by Raquel, who is brilliant and reads my mind and stuff, and she helped me a TON with putting this whole layout thing together. I am kind of sad that it doesn't have Frank at all, but maybe in my tweaking I will find a way to put him and maybe others in, idk.

ALSO, Laura is coming to visit me TOMORROOOOOW. (technically today, but whatevs.) my first time meeting online peoples! I think we're gonna get dinner at a place called Corleone's, how awesome is that?
