Back from training! My new term starts tomorrow and I'm exhausted and slowly, but surely, catching up to everything I've missed without internet for a solid ten days. If you wanna help me out and post anything important that I've missed and should read, feel free to post a link in a comment here.

Otherwise, welcome me back and get my writing inspiration back with a little meme;

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you;

1. The first character I fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

I'm off to Georgia for Spring Training, as per usual during this time of year. I'll try to get internet and stop in, but if I don't respond to anyone's entries it's because I'm gone. I'll catch up with everything when I get back on March 5th, but spring term starts then and there are a lot of exciting things occurring then. ^^

Bye-bye for now!

So I know that, oh, about two weeks ago my life was looking pretty bad but I just wanted to thank everyone for such great support! Also, things are so much better already.

For one thing, my bitch roommate moved out so yayayayayyayayayyay!~

I finished the last of my classes and now I only have two Spanish finals on Monday then I leave on Wednesday for Spring Training in Georgia for Rowing. We had our last Rowing tests too. I DID AWESOME. I am officially on the All Time list for the history of Mercyhurst's team!~ I'm ranked as number four and I am so thrilled about it. All my hard work finally seems to be paying off.

And then nothing else has really changed but I just feel so happy right now so I don't mind. 

Also, I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] jem0000000 and [livejournal.com profile] robina1984 for the awesome package I received in the mail last week. That really helped make me feel better too!~ 

I HAVE SO MANY HAPPY FEELINGS RIGHT NOW THAT I CAN'T STOP DANCING IN JOY. SERIOUSLY I LOOK JUST LIKE MY RAPH ICON RIGHT NOW. DANCE, RAPH, DANCE WITH ME.

So, Pigglehumsy and I are watching all of Xena. We're currently on season two, but already the main characters, Gabrielle and, obviously, Xena, have kissed on three different occasions, admitted they loved each other, and done so many other couple things. So, femslash is canon. That's good enough for me so I don't have to wear my slash goggles while watching this show because it's canon.

But then, one episode where Xena is blinded and Gabrielle is being forced to marry a corpse. Yeah, the show is different, but awesome, trust me. So, Xena grabs onto some guy with an awesome scar over his eye who's been trying to kill her all episode, even though he's obviously too young and too kind hearted, and forces him to help her get to Gabrielle to save her. Gabrielle, meanwhile, has befriended an obviously gay man who is trying to teach her how to be a queen. 

Towards the end of the episode, I look at the screen and I tell Pigglehumsy that I want those two guys to end up together. She looks at me and says, "You want the guy with a scar to end up with the gay, bigger man. Yeah, that sounds about right, even though it's never going to happen." Then at the end of the episode, the scar guy decides he's going to be a good guy and stop trying to kill Xena and go live an honest life. He leaves. The gay guy watches him leave and says that they fought well together and that he was going to follow him to help him keep his life on track and stuff. I just looked at Pigglehumsy and we both exploded into laughter because obviously the writers of Xena are awesome and have my same pair of slash goggles. Pigglehumsy tipped her hat to me and for once told me that I was right which is why I had to write this entry. 

TL;DR=I shipped two random guys in a Xena episode and then it actually happened.

I’m sitting in the Pittsburgh airport getting ready to fly out to California for the second time in the same year, although this time isn’t Rowing related at all. I made a lot of great friends while in Costa Rica and we decided that we wanted our friendship to go beyond the Costa Rica trip. So here I am about to fly out to A’s place in California where R already is there waiting for me. I’m really excited for this. It promises to be a good start to my Winter break and goodness, I need this break!

Sorry to the 20-ish messages I still need to read and reply to, but I've been super busy with filling [livejournal.com profile] springkink prompts, homework, practicums, and crew. But I still wanted to take the time today to say that a step has been taken in the right direction of LGBT rights in the USA. That's right, as of today, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is completely repealed.

A statement from President Obama pretty much sums up how I feel;

‎"Today, the discriminatory law known as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is finally and formally repealed. As of today, patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love."

I am now happy to know that if I wanted to join the military, which I am considering as an option if the job situation doesn't work out, I wouldn't have to hide myself.

 I'm in Philly for one of our last crew races, which is actually going to be televised and live-streamed on ESPN3.com and Dadvails.tv on Saturday so yay for that. But anyways, I stumbled across this awesome list of 388 kinks. And I was reading through them and realized that I've written/am in the process of writing most of them. When I say most of them, I mean I counted around 40 or so that I haven't written. Most of the ones I haven't written revolve around girls as the theme too. XD So, yeah, I thought that was interesting and wanted to turn it into a meme of sorts.

So go ahead and look through the list, find one of your favorite kinks, and ask me if I've completed/am working on a fic with that in it. I'll post either the link to the fic or a brief description of what I have so far.

Back from the first Crew race of the season. So exhausted. I tried to cover everything that I missed over the weekend but I might have missed a thing or two. I think I got everything though since the fandom has been quiet lately. Honestly, I'm really excited about the new Nick TMNT toon just so it'll jump-start the fandom again. Anyways, I need to do laundry and really need a shower...after lifting practice this afternoon though. Don't have the energy to shower twice today lol.

 It took me five hours, but I am all caught up with my Flist now, for the most part. I still have some things I wanted to read but I feel up to date.

Talk of Spring Training, Rowing, New Classes, and Brother )

 It's officially Spring Break! And being in college, what will I be doing to spend my glorious ten days of school-free time? While, I'll be rowing of course. I leave at 8 tonight for a 16 hour bus ride down to Georgia to then spend all days up to March 5th rowing as much as possible. Just like last year. And next year. And next year. 

I'm okay with this, except for the fact that we rarely get internet access. :( There is internet, but it's a ten mile hike to the hotel that has internet access, which I can easily make, I just need the actual time, hence an afternoon off from practice or something. So don't expect to see me online in the next ten days but if I am, then yay! 

So for those last three meme requests, I'll try to finish them while in Georgia. I'll also try to work on other fics so I can post things when I get back.

Also, I leave with a parting gift, because I'm awesome like that. ;) I give you all Crashed Part II because I hope a 55K fic will help amuse you guys while I'm gone. Read the warnings at the top. It's my NaNo, guys, so you know it has gay turtle sex and some noncon and other ridiculousness in it. 

If you really need to get a hold of me, then just text me because I will be bored during my downtime of rowing practices. Or asleep. Still, I will eventually reply to the text at some point in that day. If you don't have my number and can't text me, there's a reason for that! ^^ So instead, you'll have to wait until I get back.

BYE GUYS!~

 I don't particularly like Valentine's Day because it promotes love for only one day when love really should be an every day kind of thing, but I do love the day after when the chocolates are all on half off sale. ^^ I love buying myself chocolate, even when I turn down others that do buy me chocolate. >_> Honestly, I might seem like a cold bitch for turning a guy down yesterday, and admittedly I am a huge bitch but I'm okay with it 'cause it's part of my personality, but when I've been turning a guy down for over three months now, he really still shouldn't try again on Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day isn't some sort of magical holiday when I'm suddenly going to realize that I'm in love. It's just another day really. If I was in a relationship already, I'd buy my significant other something but I wouldn't make such a big deal out of the day. If I remember last year correctly, when I was dating, I really didn't do anything special. I bought Amber chocolates and we watched a movie while cuddling and eating the chocolates together. It was a pretty normal thing, honestly.

 Hahaha, I got a sprain and a strain in my back. For those who don't know, a sprain is an injury to a ligament, the tough, fibrous tissue that connects bones to other bone. Ligament injuries involve a stretching or a tearing of this tissue. And then a strain is an injury to either a muscle or a tendon, the tissue that connects muscles to bones. Depending on the severity of the injury, a strain may be a simple overstretch of the muscle or tendon, or it can result in a partial or complete tear. At least that's what the internet told me and the physical trainers who looked at me. Basically, I pulled my back muscle and so now it's inflamed and I also sprained one of the ligaments attached to that muscle. 

I'm just laughing because this would happen to me the last week of training before testing week and then before we leave for spring training. FML. 

Honestly, we have 13 girl rowers on the team right now.
1 is out from knee surgery.
1 has carpal tunnel in her right hand.
1 has a pulled groin muscle.
1 has a hip problem.
1 did have a heart murmur but that finally went away so know she's getting into shape.
2 have a knee problem.
5 have back problems. 

WE HAVE 1 GIRL THAT DOESN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. YET. KNOCK ON WOOD. WTF ROWING?!? WTF?!?

Oh wow

 January is almost over and I haven't even posted a fic yet! Bad, Jordan, very bad! >_< But I've been very busy lately since midterms were last week/this week/next week. And then Crew testing is next week too. And then it's February and then Spring break and then ten more weeks and I'm a Junior! :O Time just seems to be flying by right now, which is kinda nice. So, a little recap of what's been going on in my life sounds in order.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I got awarded Athlete of the Week last Saturday for Crew! ^^ Rambling )

Smack my alarm clock. Then I grab the clothes I set out the night before and head to the bathroom to relieve myself, change, brush my hair, and put deodorant on. Then I eat a banana, put my coat and, currently, gloves, hat, and scarf on. Then I walk to the gym. Then I either lift, spin, do an agility circuit, or do our core exercises for an hour to three hours. Then I eat. Walk back to my apartment dorm. Shower. And go back to sleep for another hour or so before I go to classes, except for Saturday where I wake up slowly before my second workout for the day. 

This happens every morning except for Sunday. By the way, the alarm clock that I smack usually says 5:20 a.m. 

Now then, I have to get going for my second and last workout for the day. In two hours I can start to enjoy my weekend and when I say start to enjoy my weekend I mean finally get to start writing again!~

Of course I celebrate Halloween! It's my favorite holiday, to be completely truthful. For one full day you can be whoever you want to be; fictional character, a role model, a favorite celebrity, an animal, a dream occupation, a mystical creature, whatever you want! The atmosphere is mischievous yet playful for the entire day and there are a tons of sweets. I love cosplaying and candy so of course this is a perfect holiday for me. 

I went Trick-or-Treating up to my senior year of high school and I can't wait to have kids so I can Trick-or-Treat again! Every year for high school I would also have a Halloween party for my group of friends. We bobbed for apples one year, watched scary movies, wore costumes, and all those traditional things. We also made up our own way to go Trick-or-Treating by putting buckets of candy in my backyard (hill covered with trees so a giant wooded space) and putting glow sticks in the buckets. When it turned dark we tromped through the leaves and got candy from each bucket. It was awesome.

This year, we got off from Crew this weekend. I went home on Friday night and most of Saturday. I carved a pumpkin and baked the seeds at my house. I carved it to be like a bat against a full moon instead of a traditional face. Then [livejournal.com profile] pigglehumsy  came up to my college with me. We went to a Crew Halloween party in our costumes. She was a Twister board (looked amazing) and I went as my sexy!Raphael. The party kinda sucked, which was sad, so we left around midnight and went to EatNPark in our costumes. ...They put us in the back corner of the place. XD 

Then today we decided to make a huge Halloween feast for dinner. I'll do a separate entry for that once we finish cooking everything because, honestly, this is going to be a pretty impressive spread.

 Another weekend, another Crew race! Except we have to use one of our extras for the boat since the original apparently has mono and we've never won this race before, so things are looking like this entire weekend will be a total waste of my time. Oh well. I'll try to get homework done and study for my test anyways. Hell, maybe I'll try to have fun too.
aloneindarknes7: (Default)
 Okay, time to do this entry since I'm done with midterms. Everything is fine with my Spanish now, btw, I was just over-reacting but I'm guaranteed a passing grade, maybe even a B-, since I participate so much and do well in the projects area.

NYCC Trip Info (no pics here) )


aloneindarknes7: (Default)
 Scratch uploading pictures tonight. I might have to look for a new minor or something. >_< Let's just say I'm busy and freaking right now. Will upload NYCC stuff later. Possibly Wednesday if I'm not too stressed.
aloneindarknes7: (Default)
 I've done this meme before but I love it so much so it makes its triumphant return now!

The Song Letter Meme

The Rules:

1. Reply to this post with IF YOU WANNA SING OUT, SING OUT and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload) 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[livejournal.com profile] neuronautica  gave me the letter H!

Hatefuck by The Bravery (because it makes me think of Donald and Don <3 )
Holding Out for a Hero by Frou Frou (because I love this remake so much and this song is so many kinds of awesome) ((can't upload this one since I bought it off of iTunes so you get the youtube link, sorry! D: ))
Handlebars by Flobots (because it's such a good song to workout to)
The Horror of Our Love by Ludo (because I love Ludo and this song is amazingly creepy in the way that it captures creepy romances)
Hope and Glory by Mans Zelmerlow (because it's so bouncy and fun to sing along with)

Also, for a little bit of real life update; NYCC was a blast this past weekend. I'll be uploading a real entry and pictures from it later on tonight, probably. I was panicking all weekend for a big argument project I had to deliver this morning. Delivered it and won so I got an automatic A. Yay! But now I have a Spanish test this Wednesday and a final paper due then. Seeing how I got a 40/100 my last Spanish test, I really need to study for this one. So I got myself a tutor! But luckily, I got a B on my first project, already turned in my second project, although I haven't gotten a grade back yet, and my rough draft for my paper wasn't too badly marked up. So hopefully some good grades can balance out the shitty first test grade.

Dear Claire,

 Okay, so I just Mapquested my college to the hotel that we're staying at for the Con. It'll take about 7 hours and 17 mins, not including stops or anything so including stops for food, gas, and so many toilet breaks since you pee every other minute, I'm going to assume that the trip is closer to 8 hours or just 7 hours and 45-ish mins since I'll be speeding on the one road that is apparently going to be 345 miles. Seriously, we just cut right accross PA to the Con pretty much. BUT THE THING IS, we pass Mercer. So I know the combination for the garage opener at the lakehouse and that would probably save us an hour. Idk if you'd want to do that or not though? I mean, honestly it is just an hour but, hey, it's an option. Also, do we still want to try to get to the con at 3-ish? Because then I need to talk to the others. Actually, I need to talk to the others anyways.

OH HEY OTHERS GOING TO CON AND READING THIS, how are we going to do this whole getting into the hotel room in four different shifts, thing and then meeting up for some Con time? I'm not sure what time you're all aiming for, but like I said, Claire and I are aiming to get there around 3 on Friday. How do we get ahold of you guys for a hotel room key? Can we ask for four different keys so then Jem and Robina can share one, Mica and Jenn can share one, Claire and I can share one, and then Kelly can have her own? Would that be plausible?

Also, Claire, I was going to tell you to remind me to call the hotel room and figure out how we get permission to park and all that business, but instead I'll just write it here so I won't forget because otherwise I would forget and so would you.

Love,
J-Dawg
