Catch-up Meme from owlmoose
First time I'd seen it, that I remember.So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?
- Finished the summer courses I was taking, and now just started the fall semester. I'm currently taking the only two courses available to me that advance my area of study. (I am still working on Mathematica code, though. I don't want to forget how to use it.)
- I qualified for Work Study and now have a second job in a library - two hours a day, five days a week, give or take a few. Mostly I prep periodicals for shelving and such.
- We've started going to a local trampoline place. I'm trying to convince my SO that we should go there once a week or so.
Other than that, it's much the same. I mostly study a lot.What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
Most of my time? Hmm. Final Fantasy VII, probably. Specifically I've spent quite a bit of time finding and linking Barret/Tifa stuff to somekindalady
, because there are people who actually like it there, and that makes me happy. I haven't gotten into any new fandoms lately, mostly because of time.
I'll probably be back into Star Ocean 2 again once I find my PSX again and finish the game. It's still lots of fun. Also, thanks to at least one PA I've seen, my crack Noel/Dias/Rena OT3 is practically canon.
As far as writing is concerned, I spend a lot of time at fic_promptly
still. They have a remix challenge coming up, so I've been spending the time to find and collect all of my ficlets on that site into a spreadsheet. It's quite long.Where do you hang out online?
I finally caved and got a Fanlore
wiki account, and started editing a few pages there. My fandoms are underrepresented on that site, and unfortunately I'm not the best person to help with that, because my memory is so fuzzy on so many things, and because I foolishly deleted my community posts in addition to my journal. (I'd tried to archive them. Then I lost the flash drive just before moving them to my new computer. Oops.)
Current projects: Expand the Star Ocean and Skies of Arcadia pages I just made, make a page for Final Fantasy VI, and do more research for FFVIII fandom and/or find other people to help me with it. I can't remember everything, and I was in a corner of fandom at the time that lots of people found really annoying. There were trolls.)What are you reading?
Textbooks, mostly. Wish I had more time to read. (I did recently read The King In Yellow
by Chambers; I can see how it influenced Lovecraft, although I'm not a big Lovecraft fan.) What are you watching?
Again, I haven't had much time to watch things for myself. I did finally finish Burn Notice, and realized just how dark the last season gets compared to most of the rest of the show. Also, SO's been watching The Blacklist, and sometimes I'll join in; we've finished S1, but I haven't seen them all, partially because of SO's habit of watching things when I'm not there. (James Spader does a frighteningly good job at playing Affably Evil.
To-Watch list: Season 1 of Sense8 (seen bits of this, again thanks to SO,) Season 1 of Boardwalk Empire, and finishing Season 1 of Daredevil (mostly because I like Foggy and I really like the chemistry between Matt and Foggy and Karen.)What are you making?
Still doing some work on the Twine game I mentioned a while back, but mostly I've been busy writing papers and coding for class assignments (or just for practice, in a few cases.) C++ really isn't that hard. As I said above, I still write sometimes for fic_promptly
and I've fallen off the wagon for fan_flashworks
and want to get back on.
I need to make more time for drawing. I miss drawing.What are you squeeing about today?
Eh, nothing in fandom. (Sorry, just... too tired to be excited, I suppose.)If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be.....
Uhhh... ? It'd be cool to have more friends to play on the Wii U with - to help on Hyrule Warriors or to form teams on Splatoon with - but I can't think of much beyond that.I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!
Any of the things I mentioned above, and also maybe Thor: The Dark World, because I never did see it.What else is on your mind?
School would be much easier if I wasn't tired out of my mind on allergy meds... at least I'm not itching anymore, which probably says something.But things as a whole are looking up. Still want to post more often.
