Decent Day

Today went fairly well. I had to work a strange shift, but we were slow so I spent most of it going over my programming book. Lots of assignments due, not much willpower to do them. I have the next three days off, so Bossy is going to study her little tukkus off!

Round one of the exchange_bingo is over. I didn't get Review Queen (congrats, mrs_helenesnape!), but I did get a nifty consolation banner!

Spiffy, isn't it? Banner or not, I have had so much fun reading and reviewing each day. I love the author responses the most!

Mr. Bossy and I made tonight a date night. We grabbed a quick dinner and then went to go see Rise of the Planet of the Apes. First I wanted to see it because one of our regulars raved about it today at the shop. I had completely forgotten it had James Fanco in it. *swoon*

Then comes Tom Felton. *double swoon*

I will be frank: he gets what's coming to him in that movie. Excellent actor, douche character.

Mr. Bossy didn't realize who it was until afterward, since Tom speaks with an American accent (with a few slips, but not bad!). Once I told him who it was, he just grinned at me and said "that's what he gets for being such a douche to Harry Potter. Take that, Draco Malfoy!"

At that moment, my love for that man deepened, haha. Dork joy!

Other than the swoon-worthy actors and some killer action sequences, it had a great story line that tied everything together. The CGI work was amazing, as well. Yeah, some of it did look a bit cheesy, but overall it was very entertaining and well worth the money spent on the admission. It makes me want to go to the store and see if I can find the other films so I can re-watch them. It's been ages since I've seen the original Planet of the Apes.

I totally <3 Caesar.

Now that I've gushed about the exchange and my date night, time to get caught up on some assignments. I'm not far behind, but I need to make sure I come out of my last two semester with top marks!

Cooler Weather = Win

This summer has been particularly harsh here in SoFl. Now that we are slowly moving to autumn we are having the most fantastic weather. For the past week I've been able to turn off the air conditioner and open all of the windows to air out my stuffy room before winter arrives (when it will once again be closed up and become stuffy).

Roomie has finally 100% moved out, so I now have my entire bedroom to myself and Mr. Bossy. She kept her things in here before and created so much clutter. I would get irritated when she constantly made comments about how many possessions I had, so I would get rid of things using the mantra I learned from my bestie, 'it's just stuff'. I'd have this on repeat in my mind while I tossed things into bags for charity. The only things that did not make it into the bags were my must have clothes, some nicknacks, and my books (it will be a cold day in hell before I get rid of my books). Now that roomie's crap is gone, my room is so much cleaner, almost empty except for the areas that I keep my few belongings.

What makes it even more golden is the fact she came over yesterday boasting that she can now see the floor of her bedroom in her uncle's house. Yeah, who had too much crap? At least I can always see my floor and everything has it's proper place, where it will be returned after it has been used.

I really want to redecorate now that my room isn't one giant clusterfuck. It is a clusterfuck of styles, I will admit. I have a lot of Chinese pieces that I've collected over the years, plus artwork of varying different styles that I just fell in love with. Mr. Bossy suggested we do half of the room Red Sox for me, and the other half Saints for him. Again, cold day in hell. I love my Sox, but I am not that devoted. I would prefer clean earth tones to match our sheets, with some red thrown in for luck. I would also like a different work area. I've had this piece of crap pressboard desk since I was sixteen years old. I only have a laptop, so this massive thing isn't really needed. Bestie suggested I pick up one of those small dining tables from the furniture store, that way it will not only take up less room than this big thing, but also offer more seating and work area for when we study together. I think that would be nice.

I have too many ideas, and not enough space.

I would also like to make some bookshelves for the walls so I can get rid of this ugly shelf I've got. It's crammed with books at least two rows of books deep on each shelf, plus things crammed on top of other things, haphazardly shoved on wherever I can find space. I am expecting to be woken up in the middle of the night by the bookshelf cracking in two because I've got too many books on there for it's delicate structure.

Alright, enough pondering. I've got a list of assignments a mile long to complete and I'm procrastinating.

Blah Kinda Day

It really has been a rather icky day. I did get to sleep in for once, and I went shopping with my bestie and her little girl.

From the get go, I've had a headache from hell, probably originating from my lack of coffee and breakfast this morning. I managed to battle through the shopping trip, spent a bit too much money along the way, but my goddaughter now has the cutest Halloween costume evah.

Also looked at a costume with bestie. I brought up being Mario and Luigi one day at work since we are being allowed to dress up every shift for the week of Halloween. I found some darling costumes in the boys department at Walmart (since bestie and I are petite ladies and can fit the children's costumes), but she found some adorable 'sexy plumber' and 'sidekick' costumes at Party City. I am a little weary since most of those so called sexy costumes end up looking like they belong on a hooker. These aren't so bad, and Bossman says if they look hot enough they will be the store's new work uniform, haha. The only drawback is they don't have a mustache since they are ladies' costumes. We picked out some glue on black handle bar mustaches, also on Party City, so we are going to add those. It's going to be awesome rocking a mustache at work.

I'm not sure what she is doing the rest of the week, but I am recycling my Slytherin school uniform and going as a school age Bellatrix Lestrange one day, and then Doctor Who (the 11th Doctor) another day. I just hope it's cool enough outside that week for some of my more layered costumes.

Even though the day didn't turn out how I had anticipated, I did have some lovely news pop up in my email: I am now a Granger Enchanted Accredited Beta! I think I barely passed their test, but I passed and now I'm going to be listed in the GE beta section as well as have my own spiffy banner showing off my prowess with words and grammar.

I passed the GE beta exam, yet I am unable to be posted at Ashwinder because of my under use of commas. Isn't that just shity.

I need to stop letting that get to me.

I need to get dressed soon. Mr. Bossy is getting a tattoo tonight and postponed the appointment until tonight so I would be able to go up to the shop with him. I felt so ill earlier he felt bad leaving without me. Luckily we know the artist well enough for him to play with his schedule and move things about for us.

Studied at work. Took a nap after I got home. Read some at the exchange, left reviews.

I feel so restless. *sigh*

Writer's Block: Take Two

In the next life, who or what do you think you’ll be reincarnated into?

I find it funny that this question pops up today, as Mr. Bossy and I had a conversation about that last night.

He believes that we alternate attitudes and experiences in life. For example, since I am a more meek homebody this life (the perfect woodland rat, as I say), he thinks I was a migratory bird in the past life. He says I did all of my traveling then so I am making up for that now by being more home and family oriented.

Using his logic, I imagine I will either be someone who travels a lot, or I will be someone who doesn't have a care in the world. Right now I spend most of my time making sure that ends meet and I keep my top marks in school. In my next life I don't think I'll have to push as hard. Maybe I will come from a wealthy family and be placed in their business, or I will be a beloved house cat.

Either that or I'll come back as a beetle. Who knows. It's fun to ponder.

Little Miss Happy Pants

Today I am a very mellow Bossy. Mr. Bossy and I went to breakfast at our favorite breakfast joint and then went to a friend's house to watch the newest episode of Adventure Time. Yeah, we love us some cartoons. I shipped some books, took a survey, and now I'm hanging out with the cat. All that is left for the day is working on my studies.

I have a general sense and feeling of well-being, and I absolutely love it.

Posting has started at the sshg_exchange and I can't be more excited. Not only because I'm playing exchange_bingo, but also because I volunteered to write a drabble for the mini-rounds. That makes me happy. It gives me a chance to participate in the exchange in a different way since I wasn't able to offer up anything for the exchange this year. Then again, I've just gotten the balls to really start being active in the community.

My studies are going great, I've found my muse and an amazing beta, things are going great at work, and life is improving at home. I could be happier, yes, for some reasons that I may go into in later posts, but as a general picture right now I am pretty damn spiffy. I am content.

Time to catch up on studies. If I intend on being a 4.0 student again this semester, I need to work my tail off.

Feeling of Accomplishment

Today was a day where I got a lot done. I managed to clean my store up and down over my five hour shift, get some calculus notes taken, and get in touch with my professor about why I wasn't given an access key to do the homework when I purchased my book. Attempted to call the bookstore, but no one answered. Fail.

On to my other accomplishments! I managed to get my first piece posted! I posted it at 10iloveyou as well as Ashwinder and Granger Enchanted. Both of those are moderated archives, so we will see what comes of it. I tried ff.net too, but my computer is ancient and fail when it comes to ff.net's user area. Looks like I won't be posting there. From the quality of the work that is there, I may be glad that I don't have the ability.

After work I spent some time with Mr. Bossy on the back porch with the cats. Foof-a-doof, one of the cats that doesn't like me much, shocked me by coming over and sitting on my lap.

I have tomorrow off, so it will be dedicated to more calculus. I may not be able to access the homework right now, but I will be able to study up and be prepared for the homework and tests when I do have access. I have to finish reading a chapter for Accounting, and then study up for a quiz in Economics for Thursday. All in all I am caught up and feel a bit ahead of the game. It's nice.

Mid-Week Update

It feels nice to know that we are being spared by Hurricane Irene, but I worry for those who are in the path of the strengthening storm. We are going to get some of the outer rim, but not near as much as anticipated. Just lots of rain and some winds - nothing that we can't handle of course, since we've had stronger thunderstorms than we are going to get off of the side of this hurricane.

First accounting class went well, though the first thing in my head was my teacher looks a lot like aged Draco from the 19 years later portion of Deathly Hallows Part II. Draco Malfoy's looks and receding hair line, and the personality of a Weasley. Or even Colin Creevy.

Calculus is going well so far, and making me fall even more in love with math. The rules, though, can go kiss it. They read like stereo instructions. I learn better through example.

Lots of things to do today, so I best be off!

Who Has Two Thumbs And A Beta?

This girl, this girl!

I took a leap and contacted someone from the SH forums and heard back from them nearly immediately. She also helped me realize why no one had contacted me: my dumb ass posted my LJ username as my email address instead of my yahoo name. That's what I get for being in a desperate hurry, I suppose.

Today went well, as well as it could for a dentist appointment at least. I had a cleaning and floride treatment that made me feel like I hadn't brushed my teeth for a week. Even four hours later when I tried to brush it off it didn't all come off. Now everything tastes funny.

Went to the mall today with Mr. Bossy and picked up a few things that I really didn't need. It felt good to spoil myself a little bit. It felt even nicer to find a pair of fingerless gloves with the Hogwarts crest on them for winter. I don't have heat in my home so those will come in handy while working on homework assignments or writing.

Started two classes today, as well. Calculus seems like it will be pretty breezy once I get the hang of it, and my programming class is going to be fantastic. The syllabus and schedule is a bit confusing, but this teacher seems like he will be super helpful.

Time to work more on my second short. My first short was sent off to my newly found beta just a few moments ago. I can't wait to get feedback on my first HP short!
