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? ^_~

Since avoidance is my primary way of coping with stress I found myself in this position a bunch in grad school, so hugs and empathy from me and I hope all goes well tomorrow!

Thanks! *hugs*

Hey guys!! I’m making this post for all of the other students/college students who are like me.
I have a really hard time keeping track of my homework assignments for each class/when they’re due, and sometimes that causes me to get assignments done late because I start jumbling up when shit for which class is due. I know paper agendas are a thing, but sometimes I have projects that aren’t due for weeks, so having when it was assigned 3 pages back isn’t going to help me remember it/keep track of when I should do it.

However! I found this nifty website called myhomeworkapp.com!!!

Basically, you can input your classes/class times, and your homework, and set when your homework is due, and it will sort out when you need to get your homework done, and even tell you if you’re late on any of your assignments. It’s even color coded!

You can even set it to when it should remind you to work on your specific homework assignment, set certain assignments to different priorities, and even highlights ones that are due soon (see the one up there that’s in orange, since it’s 2:30am here, that’s technically due today OTL).

 I didn’t even have to make an account, I just hooked it up to my facebook account because I’m a lazy motherfucker!!!!

But yeah you guys should give it a shot if you’re like me and have a really hard time keeping track of homework/when you should work on it/scheduling in general, and paper agendas aren’t flipping the bill.

This Yuletide thing looks really fun (but also really complicated!). Scrolling through the nomination posts is intimidating--there are so many things I've never heard of. But that's also kind of cool, too.

OH. MY. GOSH.

Let me talk to you about Yuletide.  ^_________________^  Because I love Yuletide so much and I’m always looking to hook new people into the madness.  On the one hand, it’s far less complicated than it appears.  On the other… it’s far MORE complicated than it appears.  If you really think you might be interested, I wouldn’t worry about the complications for right now.  Save that for next year.  ^_~

(Please no one yell at me, this is Yuletide in a nutshell.  For further detail, I strongly encourage you to check out the rules: [x])

OK, schreberpants, what can I say?  You inspired me to also do the thing.

My Yuletide brainstorming post: [x]

Not going to say any more about it for now, but for any of you who like to write and like doing exchanges, Yuletide is a lot of fun.  It’s a small fandom exchange — basically if you have a really, really tiny fandom that you don’t think anyone will ever write fic for and you wish they would… Yuletide is the exchange for you.  ^_^  I’ve gotten so many fandom-of-my-heart stories out of this exchange for fandoms I never thought I’d get to read fic for.

So, if you think you might be interested, you should check it out.  ^_^

God that sucks. I’ve thought about getting something like one of those saucer-type chairs for when I’m writing, because they kinda hold your back differently. IDEK though. Mostly I have to change positions like every hour or so.

It really does. *sigh* I’m best off changing positions, too, but my problem is that I don’t REMEMBER. Like… it doesn’t hurt when I’m sitting. It hurts later on when I get up. And by then it’s way too late to do anything about it other than apply a hot rice sock and hope for the best. :-P

I have a feeling my best best will be my desk and a footrest so my legs aren’t dangling. That’s the easiest thing I can think of to try anyway. :-P Good luck finding something that works for you!

I had to start working at standing desks because sitting in office chairs, even the super nice ergo ones, would kill my back. :( I’ve had good luck with a standing set-up, though.

My back issues don’t allow me to stand for too long, either. Like… I’m good for maybe 30 minutes TOPS standing. I can do closer to 2-5 hours sitting if I have to, but changing positions is best. I WAS NOT COUNTING ON THIS NECK/SHOULDER THING. I mean… what even is that? :-P

But yeah, the armchair seems to be being a bit kinder to me than the couch was, but I’d still be better off if I wasn’t canting my neck downward to see my laptop. *sigh* …I really need a lift-top table that fits in my room. :-P

Sloooooooowly working my way through the Yuletide coordination post.  *sigh*

September 1, 2014 7:16 PM
I worked in similar position the past few days from home and it fucked me up baaad, not having my ergonomic office set up. :(

OMG, seriously. I think the problem is that I spent a decent part of the summer sitting like that and it just caught up to me. *sigh* I have a desk and a good chair for the desk, but my desk is covered in crap at the moment and with the air conditioners running I can’t leave the doors open if I’m at the desk… which means my cat is stuck in his room all by himself if I use the desk. Which I don’t like, either. :( Kind of a lose-lose there. *sigh*

And even sitting at my desk for too long is no good. I started having leg problems last time I did that because if I’m at the right height for my back… my feet dangle. I just can’t fucking wing. *sigh* I think the answer is that I need a lift-top table to put in front of my couch, but I can’t find one small enough. ARGH.

(And now I’m staring at my Yuletide noms and realizing I have NO IDEA how to even start narrowing it down and that brainstorming post is always a giant mess because I can’t figure out how to search it. GRR.)

For the last month or so I’ve had MAJOR problems with a stiff neck.  The entire right side of my neck and down into my shoulder solidified into a giant muscle cramp and it is WAY less than fun.  Anyway, yesterday, I think I figured out why.  Because no matter how I positioned myself on my couch, my neck and shoulder started twanging with pain.

That’s so many kinds of not good.  Because when I’m at home, I spend a great deal of time on that couch and I don’t know how else I can sit on it that won’t cause me pain.  I’m sitting on the armchair now, but it’s not as comfortable and my neck still hurts.  I think a large part of it is the angle my neck is at looking down at my laptop.

…shit.  That’s DEFINITELY NOT GOOD.  -.-;;;  *whimper*

You know what’s funny? I don’t miss that. Like… at all. I stay far far away from fandoms that big. Les Mis is almost too big for me. O_o;;; I think that’s the introvert in me. -.-;;; Good luck finding a fandom, though! ^_^

**snip**

Yeah no LM was huge like, on the level of the biggies of Tumblr huge for a year, and is still fairly active. I think the problem with that one is if this was a tv show I’d be saying “come on, we need a new season, we could use some new material and new blood!” But, well. :P

Doctor Who used to be my favorite fandom several years ago, it was the dearest thing to my heart. Lately though it’s just depressing, and none of the Who fans on my dash seem… that excited about the new season. Just sort of like “oh let’s gif this and stuff because it happened and that’s cool” like the Sherlock fans did with s3. 

Let’s make an active new fandom out of something old. Who wants to get really excited about The Three Musketeers?? or Labyrinth? OR LOST???? I’d do terrible, illegal things for a group Lost watch-along, either of vet fans or newbies. Honestly I’d be happy just getting excited about something with a few other people and having keysmashy conversations about things I haven’t had a thousand conversations about already.

OK, I get that.  I think maybe because I’m actively reading the book at the moment I’m getting that feeling of “new season” because I keep finding out new things?  And I keep finding new characters to explore and people to talk to, so for me, it doesn’t feel run down yet?  I don’t know. But I get the need to have variety and new things to keep you excited.

And I’m sorry about DW.  That’s the worst feeling and I’ve had it happen to me more than once.  :-P  And if I had the time or energy for anything new (I tend to be a mostly one-fandom-at-a-time person), I’d totally join you on Three Musketeers.  But yeah… I already know I wouldn’t have time or mental energy for that.  And that only gives you a fandom of two anyway, which isn’t much better.  :-P

Gentle reminder that Ouran has a pretty much canon nonbinary protagonist.

Gentle reminder that said protaganist’s single parent is a canon bisexual drag queen dadmom

Gentle reminder that there is an entire trop of singing lesbians in Ouran

Gentle reminder that Ouran is actually the shit
