Things I've been fannish about recently, you ask?
Les Miserables, Graceland, Next to Normal, Vikings, Being Human (UK), Book of Mormon (the musical), The 4400, Star Trek (TOS and Reboot), Harry Potter, Avengers, Power Rangers, Hair (the musical), Firefly, Supernatural, LOTR, Dollhouse, Sherlock, Teen Wolf, and... yeah, I think that's enough to be getting on with, don't you? ^_~

Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

Hmmm… and now, instead of relaxing and writing (which was my original plan for this afternoon), I may be running up to school for the second day in a row. Because I have to teach a class in two weeks and have NO IDEA what I’m even teaching, other than a rough general idea of topics we cover in that class. So it’s GOOD that my boss can meet with me… but I could have used the day to relax and let my back and neck unkink. Responsibility sucks.

Out with the old… and in with the new!!


You have NO idea how much I love my new bathroom.  Ask elin2002, though.  She got to hear about it all weekend.  I think we might have even actually HUNG OUT IN THE BATHROOM for like… 30 minutes the first night she was here.  (Sorry about that, BTW!  ;D)  She also helped me picked out the rugs, towels and shower curtain.  ^_^

Anyway, apart from a few nitpicky finishing touches (like fixing some grout and putting the enhancer/sealer on the shower floor and a new flat piece on the bottom of the cut-out for the shampoo and conditioner and such), this is it.  My bathroom is done!  :D  *cheers*  *does the happy dance*

I slept two hours last night so I could get up early enough this morning to use my shower one last time and clear everything out of my bathroom.

Because today is my last day with this bathroom.

By this time two weeks from now (*knock on wood*)… I’LL HAVE A BRAND NEW ONE!  XD

So… three weeks ago, my bathroom looked like this.  To put it mildly, it was not to my taste.  It was also about 50-60 years old and the pipes had been leaking into the downstairs bathroom and den for a few years.  It was time for that bathroom to GO.

I post this just to remind you of what the bathroom looked like then.

…because, DUDE.  Look at it NOW.  XD

there’s no way combeferre’s above lying to the other amis about when courfeyrac is coming home after a long trip to ensure he gets a few hours alone time with his boyfriend, at least.

In professional auditions its a totally overdone song. Auditioning for the HS musical? Go for it! Auditioning for Once? The CD will literally roll her eyes at you. Most of the songs suggested are over done. And 4 min auditions? Ha! 16 bars max!

AH. OK. That’s a good reason. I hadn’t thought of that. And wait… where did it say 4 minute auditions?? O_o;;; Good grief. Even _I_ know better than that. O_o;;; Mainly I was reblogging it for the list of songs in my vocal range, but WOW. Yeah. That’s not at all accurate. O_o;;; Geesh.

@imakegoodlifechoices replied to your post:[[MOR]Do you know what sucks? When you’re…
I can’t read fics set in the theatre or in tv and film. I can’t. They’re always terrible. Oh and you reblogged something about auditions and it gave TERRIBLE advice. I can’t read these things. I’m a kill joy. Never audition with “All That Jazz”.

I believe it.  I remember having a minor aneurysm every time they showed Dr. Deaton actually doing vet things on Teen Wolf.

Re: audition thing
Ah. I actually hadn’t had time to go through all of it.  Any particular reason why that’s a bad choice, though?  Just curious.  Because (obviously) I know next to nothing about picking audition songs.  O_o;;;
