How has my life come to this? I listen to One Direction songs when I'm feeling shitty now. I blame my little brothers, and every fandom person on my tweetlist, especially people like [livejournal.com profile] hungerpunch who make everything seem so cool GDI LO WHY HOW WHY I CAN SING-ALONG TO EVERY SONG ON THE UP ALL NIGHT ALBUM NOW.

Also this morning I managed to get [livejournal.com profile] the_raccoondog to let herself fall victim to Harry Styles' curls and the band's ARASHI-esque shenanigans. (Tons is a big ARASHI fan.) Muhahahaaa--fuck. 8|


smh.


ETA. This is a thing [livejournal.com profile] claudine and I do:





It felt weird how yesterday was Tuesday and I didn't spend half the day waiting for Teen Wolf episode download links to appear. I did find out that my friend Kath, who had originally been appalled by the images the title alone made her imagine, managed to catch the S2 finale on TV last Saturday--and loved the fuck out of it (whereas I only laughed like a lunatic during the entire climax scene). She even tagged me on her spazzy Facebook status to ask me for the whole two seasons. XD Happily obliging.

Not having Political Animals starting next week is going to take even more getting used to, with the added torture of not knowing whether that episode really was just a season finale and the show HAS (oh please please please please? ;A;) been picked up for another season. I saw a post on GetGlue.com about how the actors were actually signed for more seasons should this happen? *FINGERS CROSSED* But the uncertainty!

STEEEEEHHHHHVVVV!!!! D'8 /CLAWS AT SCREEN SCREAMING, "TWENTY-FOURTEEEEEEN!!!!1"

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! ♥

Hey guys, heeeeyyy! ♥
ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (hbic)
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!

Hi, I have been abducted by the Avengers fandom but will probably be back soon--monogamy not promised. I have [livejournal.com profile] hs_merlin and [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin to get all jiggy with, as long as long-overdue fills for previous requests as usual (I know you guys are getting tired of my lameness already ;;), and--well. Merlin and Arthur, Bradley and Colin. ALL MY FUCKING FEELINGS THAT NO SUPERHERO TEAM CAN SIMPLY BLOW AWAY, PERFECT BOTTOMS AND CHRIS EVANS' FACE (AND HIS EVERYTHING--seriously. I had never liked a blond and blue-eyed boy-next-door type until Bradley Fucking James, and now there's two of them what the fuck) BE DAMNED.

In other news, I'm starting with grad school next week! This is exciting and fucking scary at the same time, not to mention how I'll have to endure limiting my daily budget even further now that my school fees have temporarily crippled my finances. Good news is the big boss at the office told me last week that he's spoken to the president of the corporation about possibly giving me a huge promotion halfway through my studies? And the president said yes, so. Hopefully that will srzfax truly happen for real face. But right now I'd be happy with a decent percentage of that annual raise. oAo /claws at

Anyway, I went to karaoke with office mates late last night and am currently functioning on autopilot so, uh, thank fuck my work requires mostly mechanical functions only. I love graphic desiiiiiiiign.


Do I want to draw fan art of those two dudes from the "Call Me Maybe" MV? Yes, I do.

ETA. YOU GUYS. I'm browsing through my f-list for the first time in two weeks (/cliiiing) and I am liking that I'm seeing a shit tonne of Avengers around. I thought things would have blown over by now, but ugh--this is a legit crazy-good-crazy ass fandom now, isn't it? Well, okay, it has been for a while before the movie even premiered, but ughhhh <3333333~~~~ &butt_hearts; FOR EVERYONE!!1 ;A;

ETA2. I've been terribly busy as usual and haven't had time to READ ALL THE FIC!!! *A* at all, soooo if you guys can rec me some that'd be awesome. o: Pairings I like are Thor/Loki (★★!), Tony/Steve, Bucky/Steve (★★★!!11), a bit of Steve/Peggy (FEELS ;___;) and Tony/Pepper, Clint/Natasha, and I might be swayed towards Bruce/Natasha too actually. Bonus non-romantic Science Bros are good, too. UGH IDK THIS FANDOM REALLY EXCITES ME?

I was too tired to properly squee last night and I'm kind of piled in with work today, what's new, what's new, but I've been flailing on your journals if you guys have noticed, and I wouldn't mind flailing here again--LET'S JUST DO IT IN THE COMMENTS Y/Y/MFY?

Here, I made a poster... thing:



OH, LOOK, AN ART DUMP! 8D
(includes moe!Arthur/Merlin, teenage!Arthur/Morgana, and Draco Malfoy.
all doodles, nothing serious, BUTTS.)


Also, also, also! [livejournal.com profile] radioaches! I got stalled on the art I promised you for the hotness of your Tony/Steve/Bucky fics, but it is happening, okay? It. Is. Happening. Although it mostly looks like



at the moment. 8|

.... Somebody stop me from signing up for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb. D8
