It's been Stormaggedon here in the Philippines for the past... week? Weeks? and I have spent this one so far this way:
  • Monday | went on leave for fear of dying from flying roofs and falling tree trunks; then it turned out that the typhoon had already subsided in the Metro, and i beat myself up over having wasted my leave that way. Dad (who normally discourages going on a leave for reasons that are not near-paralytic illness) said not to fret about it, though, since it was raining like a fucking deadly thing on our side of the country so I was eventually able to enjoy my rest day in peace. Relatively.
  • Tuesday | took advantage of the fairly decent weather and finally submitted my scholarship application for grad school--at super speed over lunch. *FINGERS CROSSED* Went to dinner with Potthead friends to celebrate Harry P's 32nd birthday, had an encounter with an idiot cab driver on the way home, and ended up walking the whole kilometer to the train station instead. Instant exercise! Watched the latest episode of Teen Wolf, and flailed and cried inside.
  • Wednesday | Fucking. Overslept. Thanks, Stiles.
    Thursday morning - present time | Celebrating "Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa (Month of the National Language)" with friends by speaking purely in Filipino (including non-English-based slang) on Plurk and having a good, hearty, side-splitting laugh about it. We're giving [livejournal.com profile] aesires til sundown before she cracks from the challenge, and starts spouting English again and nothing but Filipino curses instead. (Most Filipinos have gotten so used to mixing the national language with English that it has become extremely difficult to keep speaking in pure Filipino while keeping a straight face.)

Tonight I'll be seeing Brave with a couple of said friends. Excite! :D Meridaaaaa. Can't wait to love youuuuu ♥


Speaking of Clint and Natasha's lovechild, I've been encountering a lot of wank over the upcoming (is it still apt to call it 'upcoming' if it's still about two years away?) Winter Soldier movie lately, a lot of it from people who are afraid that Bucky Barnes will bring in the "ruin" of the Clint/Natasha and Steve/Tony ships, and this just... bothers me. This post pretty much sums up what I feel about it and, as the OP writes about as well, the frustration of Black Widow fans over Natasha not getting her own movie before Bucky.

Basically, (1) I'm with the people in support of more female and POC leads in superhero movies, but I refuse to do this by shitting on characters that actually have a very interesting arc and especially whom I have grown to love; (2) I think ship wars are stupid and pointless, and I'm just going to my corner and enjoy my Avengers love in peace with people who are in the fandom for the love and fun as well, okay? Okay.



ANYWAY. More pleasant stuff: This Teen Wolf meta about the classical elements in the show, and how next season could just be the year of Stiles makes me miss being in lit class at uni; and this spoken word performance about the expectations and realities of love makes me miss performance lit class like endlessly burning. Why did I decide to do a business-related post-grad again? ;_;


Hey guys, heeeeyyy! ♥

Nearly everyone on my f-list is watching the Teen's Choice Awards because of Teen Wolf, and lamenting about how their lives have come to this. Had I been home instead of work right now--and also not currently preoccupied with excitement for Political Animals ep. 2--I would be watching that as well. I think they're airing it live on FOX Cable.

Anyway, please let me know if Tumblr wins, because- HA.

Today I had my marketing midterm exam, which we checked in class immediately as if we were high school kids who just finished a pop quiz, and guess who got one of the top marks (when more than half of the class failed ._.)? :D At least I don't suck at one thing.

Still pretty *meh* about what I did with my paper, though, and I'm conditioning myself for the possibility of getting a 3.0 for it, but I'm looking forward to when we will be discussing personal branding and positioning more extensively during our make-up class on Thursday. I seriously need all the lessons on this shit.

Might miss the Batman: TDK Rises premiere, though. :( Hopefully I can drag someone to watch the last full show with me, and I will promise not to fall asleep (it's fucking Batman, so ofc--NEVER!!) like I had when I saw Magic Mike last night with a friend. To quote [livejournal.com profile] tristantrakand: A for abs and asses, D for everything else, that movie. I'm falling asleep just thinking about it!

Anyway. My Teen Wolf download is taking its sweet time completing, so let's talk about this instead, yeah?


(x)


Because, mother without a soul, what is that body even? It really pains me that I can't touch that right now. D8

Suddenly very, very, very hungry.

Right. Who else has watched the Political Animals pilot? I know [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate has and we've flailed at each others faces already, but everyone else out there who has, COME TALK TO MEEEEEE.

No, actually, wait a few more hours. I'm currently heavily caught up in writing about what makes me awesome for my midterm paper, and wow what more can a narcissistic bitch want, yeah? YEAH, NO, IT'S FUCKING HARD. Especially when you're still struggling with confidence issues and that constant nagging voice at the back of your head that tells you you're fucking mediocre and you'll never make a name for yourself, coupled with evidence irl where you get rejected for 95% of the jobs you apply for and can't even be trusted to with cel shading colouring jobs, seriously what the fuck even beginners can do that.

But, hey, I actually have some pretty neat progress with it so far! So, uh, I'll just log off again until I finish everything, and I'll talk to you all later, yeah? About Political Animals (!!) and tonight's Teen Wolf and SDCC and Merlin S5 and all the shiny things I've seen online so far--and maybe also this face:



yyyeeeaaaaaahhhhhhh. :|

I was supposed to watch The Amazing Spider-Man with friends today (Thor's Day Nights are Rainy Nights are Movie Date Nights), but I got caught up in worrying over my coursework which I had thought would all be due by Tuesday next week (a long-ass assignment and a longer-ass midterm paper) so I decided to stay at home to work on those instead.

Only to find out that the deadlines for each requirement have been moved accordingly.

Which resulted to me not working on any of them at all, and going crazy with a Filipino-themed Avengers meme on Facebook instead. (Apologies to the non-Filipinos I'm friends with there. I can'--puns-- I'm so weak. If anything, it probably annoys my fellow Filipinos more.

(I still wish you could understand the language, though. My comedic genius makes this pale in comparison.

(...wait, what, apparently they shot a scene with Steve visiting Peggy after he woke up from the ice? D'8 FUCK NO MY FEELINGS. GIVE ME THIS DVD NOW.)))

Hi, my name is Ginny and I am so fucking incorrigible I don't even know how I survive in this world.


I watched Shelter last night and found it to be a very heartwarming and moving story, with Trevor Wright being seriously adorable and whose looks somehow keep reminding me of Stiles as Zach. The horrible camera angles and awkward acting from most of the cast made me want to shoot myself, though. But it's still the nicest m/m romance I've seen so far. Then again, I've only really seen around five.


Guys we've only got one fill for the lyrics meme so far, why. D: Said fill is BEAUTIFUL, though, so you should all go read it now. ♥

And I should go to bed. \o/ Tomorrow I will revamp my icon list force myself to do sufficient work on my papers. And fix the requirements for my scholarship application for next term.

And maybe work on my coherence, too.

The low down on my even shittier presence here on LJ: basically, because of LJ's history of being bugged by those annoying bot things, the site has been automatically blocked from our office. You can still find me on Tumblr and Twitter from 730AM to 5 or 6PM GMT+8 during the weekdays, though. Activity on Twitter depends on how much work I have; I compulsively reblog shit on Tumblr regardless.

Meanwhile, [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate is hosting another

♪♫ Multifandom Lyric Fic Fest! ♫♪


!! GO, GO, GO! I'll join you all when I wake up in, uh, maybe, hopefully four to five hours. ♥ (No, see, I am a horrible human being. I told Jenn to poke me when she's finally gotten the post up, and when she did I... decided to concede to sleep. LML)


PS. Who the fuck watches the Avengers movie repeatedly and obsessively, and comes out of the ordeal shipping Bucky/Steve harder than ever as fuck even though Bucky Barnes wasn't even granted a single flashback in it? Me, that's who. Also maybe [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate. Is it 2014 yet? 8|

Okay, fine, is it July 15 yet?

PPS.

So I'm watching Kings in the guise of motivating myself while finishing my case study for tomorrow's class (this is evidently a poor excuse and an ill attempt because rewards and bribes do nothing for my productivity at all, and I probably won't finish this paper until 2AM), and I have to pause after every scene David and Jack have with each other, because I know how this show's been cancelled, know that there won't be a proper resolution, know that David and Jack's relationship will never be explored to its full potential--and this is where you hear me screaming, "NOOOOO MY KING DAVID x JONATHAN MODERN AU GIVE IT TO ME ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS AND THINGS THAT I SECRETLY GIGGLED OVER DURING CHRISTIAN LIVING CLASS IN HIGH SCHOOL BUT NEVER SPOKE OF BECAUSE, WELL, CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL," (if I'd known this show was inspired by King David's story, I would have got to it sooner, I swear, but sometimes I fail like that so) arms flailing helplessly in the air and all.

Why do all the good shows get cancelled, Jennifer f-list? Why do shows like Glee continue to exist, while Sebastian Stan's beautiful angst god face gets pushed off a cliff along with the stellar writing and gorgeous cinematography that surrounds it, never to be heard from again? (No, what? No, I didn't mention Glee just because Sebastian Stan and Dianna Agron dated, what. I really do hate what that show has become.) Tell me, f-list,



I'm wondering how much of a difference it would have made if the Kings' marketing team decided to use the show's connection to the Biblical story to promote it. Shh, I'm a Communications-graduate-cum-Marketing-student, this is very relevant to my interests. I'm thinking a lot. Hands, meet air; welcome frustration my old friend.



Anyway! I marathoned Teen Wolf S1 over the weekend, and I really, really enjoyed it? Not feeling fannish about it just yet, and I still need more Derek/Stiles interaction for me to properly get giddy over them together, but I really, really adore Stiles (I don't think there's any surprise there, because everybody does, right?) and I love Allison, and I don't find Scott annoying like a lot of people seem to? Probably has to do with my liking his face a lot. In a... perfectly non-sexual way, thank fuck, because [livejournal.com profile] l_trickster_l pointed out that this is J-Lo's kid from Maid in Manhattan we're talking about, and--oh hey. He was born in 1991. That's... I've had a huge crush on someone born in 1991, that's not so ba--NO. B|

But yeah. Stiles. Arguably the best character in the show. Definitely joining that hypothetical fan club. Also, while I coo a lot at Scott's face and ridiculousness, I coo so much harder when Stiles is having moments with his daddy. I really love Stiles and his daddy. ;3;


Also, can I just say that I love that even though I'm practically committing fandom polygamy (maybe not polygamy per se, though, but more like polyamory? multifandom whoring?), I don't feel so bad about it because EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING THE SAME? I love you guys. I really, really do. Never let me take too long a break from LJ again, fuck the website restrictions at my workplace. Fuck my even more limited time and even busier schedule these days. Fuck--

I'm so fucking hungry right now. But then I am always hungry. You won't like me when I'm hungry. #HULKSMASH

I should... get back to my paper. ~~~~~/o/

OH LOOK MORE SEBASTIAN STAN ANGST GOD APPRECIATION! AND BUCKY/STEVE AKA WHY-I-HAVEN'T-COMPLETELY-FALLEN-DOWN-THE-TONY/STEVE-RABBIT-HOLE-YET (got this from [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate who obviously wants people curling in torturous pain with her, WHYYY WOMAN?! AND WHYYYY, BUCKY?! D'8)



I successfully submitted my draft for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb btw, sooo that's exciting. Ish. Fingers crossed! XD

Still hungry.

And it only took me a little over two weeks to let you know that. Thanks to everyone who comforted me on my last entry btw! ♥ Grad school's been fun so far, though I still get the nerves and a heaving fit at least an hour before leaving from work to go to class, but it's cool, it's cool.

I'm doing pretty well and getting good grades (surprisingly really good grades o_o) on my case studies for Marketing class, but doing rather poorly in socializing with my Marketing classmates. (Seriously, though, how does one go about initiating contact and properly responding to small talk? I fucking hate small talk. Also, I swear my classmates must think I only speak when there are grades involved.)

Advanced Academic Writing class, on the other hand, well. It still frustrates me at moment that I hadn't been exempted from this class, especially since all the concepts being discussed so far (and most likely everything that will be discussed later) are concepts I'd learned about during my freshman year as an undergrad and even taught twice after I'd graduated from college, but I figured I could use the review and the practice, especially since I pretty much suck at keeping my focus during actual writing. (HELLO, EVIDENCE RIGHT HERE.)


Also, still need serious intervention on my procrastination tactics.


I'm still pretty much at the mercy of Avengers fandom, but I haven't been doing anything but reading Bucky/Steve fic and doodling Thor/Loki things when I'm bored at work lately. I have finished my line art for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb and, uh, posted these two pieces:


Fandom: The Avengers, Brave
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Princess Merida
Rating: G
Warnings: Crack?

{ I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! }


Fandom: Thor, The Avengers, X-Men: First Class
Pairing/Characters: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Thor/Loki
Rating: G
Warnings: So much crack. 8|

{ WHAT-- }
Are you sensing a pattern with my posts here? Shh, just ignore it.


Anyway, I'm on leave today because my dad just lost his job and is out with my mum renewing their broker's and CPA licenses, and I was asked to babysit my little brothers (one of whom is currently suffering from a really bad tummy), soooo I'll just be forcing myself to finish my goddamn case study for tomorrow (seriously, Gin, it's just definitions this time--fucking type the shit down already!) and hopefully I'll have time to doodle before the folks get home and Mum lords over my actions again. XD


PS. SUITS IS BACK HNGHHRHGHHH. One of my RL friends had been going all "TEAM PARALEGAL!" on Twitter yesterday, and I couldn't help myself, I had to raise the flag for Team Harvey, and he was all, "...well damn. Now that would be a twist." YEP. IF ONLY. But, eeee, Suits!

Today is the first day of my graduate classes, and I am, ah, basically I'm wracked with nervousness? I think I've been so spoiled with the routine of corporate (ugh -_-) life and ruined by the massive amount of... setbacks I've encountered in the three years I'd been out of college, that I'm not used to dealing with a new environment and new people and new challenges anymore? It's seriously vexing, but I'm trying my best to pull myself together before I have to leave work for school in... two hours. 8|

Will try to post again later tonight to let you know whether I've--well obviously you'll survive, Gin, you drama queen. /frantically runs all over the place
