Happy New Year, Valentines, Easter, Beltane, Midsummer, Birthday and anything else I've not been here for.

Went to see Ghostbusters at the weekend and I really enjoyed it. [personal profile] waltzingalong and I are talking of writing fic so I've signed up for Trope Bingo. Maybe it will cheer me up again.

2016 and I are not getting on overly well, mainly because of The Sad, which is endless and ongoing. But I don't want to be too NegativeNelly on here because its been so long and it would be nice to distract myself.

How are you? Is anyone still reading this?

Heya! How are you? Are you well? I've accidentally hiatused again. Need to quit doing that its just that it makes my head sore being on the computer alot and... I can read ALL THE FIC and play on TUMBLR from my PHONE. Its so awesome. I'll never sleep again. :D

1. I sorta, kinda, maybe agreed to be a co-mod to a land comm over on LJ. I've modded teams before but not a whole comm. :S Now I'm trying to come up with challenges... and sensible points system... and a schedule I can actually stick to. At the moment it looks like we're aiming at the challenges being posted/ended on Sundays because [personal profile] waltzingalong and I are usually about on Sundays.

Now I just need to work out how to stop Google Docs putting curly " on everything. It's very annoying.

2. I kind of didn't go to work for seven days. I didn't mean to not go to work for seven days. It started with a migraine which I'm fairly certain was the fault of delicious evil ice cream. I think I might be ... allergic or something, I don't do well with cream either... The migraine lasted a couple of days (the light sensitivity is still nipping about but ignore ignore ignore) but then I just ... couldn't go to work. I'd wake up and be like "I just, I need to get up and I need to go to work, I can't afford this" and then got all anxious/panicky and ... went back to sleep. So much sleeping!! I am so screwed next month when my pay check is like down a quarter. :S I need to go back to work tomorrow. *boak*

I went to my Doctor's re: the whole panicking when I had to go to work, persistent dread about work even on my days off and hatred of the place when I'm there thing and he told me to get a new job. Yey! Thanks dude. As it is, I agree with him but still its hard to apply for jobs when you think there's no point because everything I do is wrong and sucky. I know I'm being ridiculous but my brain, not on board with the rest of us.

3. I have been downloading loads of cheerful, motivational, pictures from Tumblr and have set up a picture frame widget on my brand new phone to look at when I feel shitty/when I'm doing my exercises. I'm trying not to reblog all of them but my tumblr is looking a bit.... motivational speakery.

4. I'm loving shows being back or starting. Haven!! I've watched so much Haven the last few weeks. I totally ship Duke/Nathan with a side dish of Audrey/Duke/Nathan (but not Audrey/Duke or Audrey/Nathan for some reason). Agents of SHIELD was good, popcorn, although Ward? was blah and boring and meh. Also watched Criminal Minds and Hawaii 5-0. They were alright. Lol.

Rather I need the ones I very much like from LJ to be over here. Its a job that wouldn't take long and yet its one that I have been meaning to do for ages.

I suddenly feel rather ill today. We went out for dinner and it was lovely but about an hour afterwards I felt... a bit off. Not food poisoned but rather like I've eaten something my body just doesn't quite like. I can't think what it could be that I ate that I didn't like because it was just italian-esque food and I'm usually fine with that (usually its certain Indian and Chinese dishes (well the versions you get in the UK) that are problematic. Like certain types of curry. Maybe there's a spice I don't like? How would I even find that out?) Also, weirdly, the thing I liked most at dinner was the most simple thing ever- salmon on cream cheese on bruschetta. And yet its not something I ever think about making at home, mainly cos I don't buy Salmon. Similarly I went out for dinner with my Dad on Saturday and I really liked my really simple prawn, garlic, and tomato tagliatelli dish. And when I am home I pretty much live on cheese sandwiches and pasta in either a cheesy sauce or a tomato-y sauce. Less fish at home (beyond the occasional tin of tuna, which I'm never sure I like).

My Mum (who I was out for dinner with) walked into my house and immediately tried to hoover (tried cos my hoover is making a weird burning smell and not sucking, which sucks, at the moment). She also sorted out my recycling and took it away with her. And she made me give her aims for what I was going to do with my evening and then my day tomorrow. This was not on her list of things to do. I've to redraft my personal statement and then look at it again in the morning. And then send it to her. And then I've agreed to write 5000 words of MPhil tomorrow and each weekend (if I'm off the weekend) or Thurs/Fri from here on out.

In other news, I've signed up for two big bangs and a couple of prompt thingies over at [community profile] caffeinatedmagic. Cos that was sensible. Rewatched Dollhouse Epitaph 1 and 2 today in order to work on said prompts. Cos that's how I roll. LOL.

I think Mum checking up on my progress may actually be good for me. I like to feel like someone gives a shit about how I'm doing day in day out and that I'm doing stuff for people other than just me. I don't do well when I feel like its just for me. Does that even make sense? *shrug*

Better go do this personal statement before its too late and I'm too tired. I'm already starting to have only one eye at my disposal. :)
