Countdown to finals has begun!  If I disappear...I may be studying.  I was supposed to study today, but instead I kind of slept most of the day.  I think it was my punishment for too many days of not sleeping enough/trying to live off coffee and dried fruit and protein drinks. (Sadly, that was actually my attempt at finding food that was not entirely nutritionally vacuous...yeah.  I am kind of the world's worst vegetarian.)

ANYWAY.  If you are not yet Doctor Who friending at [ profile] eve11's friending meme, you should go do that!  And [ profile] gdgdbaby is hosting a holiday love meme.  (My thread is here.)

Well, it's midterms again, so this is the lull before Cram All The Things begins in earnest.  I got my algebra take-home today, and I don't even understand it well enough to be properly mortified by how unprepared I am for it, but I need to start on it soon anyhow.  But for now it is still Friday, so here is a meme, stolen from [ profile] isiscaughey:

List seven songs you are into right now (preferably with links). No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your live journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

A batch of answers from the fic commentary meme!  The formatting is wonky because I had to cut and paste from multiple documents and Microsoft Word is eeeeeevil.

Still doing the fandom meme if you wanna go one post back.  Or, since everybody's doing it, I have nicked this from [ profile] eve11:

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Fandom meme snerched from [ profile] mfirefly10:

Give me a character and I will answer:
* why I like them
* why I don’t
* favorite scene/moment
* brotp
* totally random but possibly awesome non-canon ship
* head canon
* unpopular opinion

Uh, LJ went nuts, I don't know what happened to the formatting here.  In any case:

Meme snagged from [ profile] dqbunny:

Comment to this post saying "FIVE!" and I will pick five things I would like you to talk about. They might make sense or be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself, hopefully for the rest of eternity!

Questions meme!  [ profile] solo_by_choice asked me the following questions.  If you want a list of questions to answer in your own journal, drop me a note in the comments!

1. If you could live in any fictional universe, which would you choose?
Probably the Whoniverse.  I love Doctor Who a little too much for my own good.  I can see being a crew member on Serenity or joining Starfleet being fun, too, though.
2. What's your favorite planet?
I am inclined to say Mercury, but I like Mars, too.  And Pluto's not a planet anymore, but I'm quite fond of it as well.
3. How many languages do you know; which; to what degree?
Well, English, obviously, since that's what I'm answering in.  I know some Spanish.  I used to be nearly conversational in it, but I got all caught up in math and didn't make time for it anymore.  I'm really rusty now.
4. If you had to live in a different country, which one would you pick?
Perhaps the UK?  Is the UK a country, or is it built of countries?  I always forget how that works.
5. What is the last book you read?
A Doll's House, by Henrik Ibsen.  It was assigned reading in, of all things, my Chinese Literature class.
6. Numbers vs Letters, who wins?
Ahhh, I can't choose!  Maybe letters, by a very narrow margin?
7. What's your favorite hair color/style?
I am fond of long braids, and I am quite jealous of people with ginger hair.

I'm not sure if LJ cuts are working properly yet, so I won't say anything spoilery about "The God Complex."  I will say that it broke my heart a little bit, but I loved it a bunch and it was an excellent episode.

I've been back at school for about two weeks now.  (If I disappear suddenly, I've probably been devoured by homework or some such.)  I'm living in my first apartment, and it's pretty great, albeit stressful in the grownup ways of having to clean and maintain things.  I like my classes so far, especially my number theory class--best math ever.  And I have, perhaps unwisely, agreed to do mildy coding-related things to help the tutoring center keep in touch with the academic departments.  (I work for the tutoring center, so despite the fact that I'm a creative writing major and have no experience coding, this is not entirely as random as it seems.  Plus, one of the CS professors said he could help me get the scripts in Python.)

And now, on to the meme!  Ganked from [ profile] plaid_slytherin:

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

ladymercury_10: (Default)
Comment with "Come at me, bro!"  Um, or whatever you feel like saying.  
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

[ profile] plaid_slytherin asked me:

1. How close did you come to being what you wanted to do when you grew up?

Well, I'm still in college, so I guess I still haven't become anything as such.  When I was a little kid, I wanted to be an artist, then a teacher, then a dolphin trainer, then a writer.  Right now, I'm thinking science writing.  I'm majoring in creative writing, so we'll see where that goes....

2. What's the worst thing you've ever eaten?

Nothing particularly awful comes to mind.  I really don't like gnocchi, so maybe that? 
3. How do you prefer to travel (plane, train, automobile, etc.)?

Hmm.  By car, I suppose.  I also quite like riding my bicycle to go places.  
4. What is your all-time favorite fic (any fandom)?

This is a hard one.  Probably the best fic I've ever read is "Stories We Tell Our Children," by [ profile] calapine .  [ profile] such_heights  has a lovely podfic of it, as well.  

5. If you had to move to another town, where would you pick to move?

Well, I've never been to Portland, but I have this idea that it is some kind of indie hippie hipster veg-friendly bicycle-crazy book-loving town.   I'd love to live there if that's true, but it gets a lot of rain, which wouldn't agree with my allergies.

Snerched from [ profile] mfirefly10 :

Comment with any ship (romantic or platonic or maybe even non-existent!) from a fandom that you know I have some knowledge about, and I will rant about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on your ship of choice. for relevant fandoms, I guess we could say Doctor Who, Firefly, BSG, NCIS, the X-Files, the Office, Psych, White Collar, Star Trek, or Star Trek: TNG.  I'm sure I'm missing some, so if you remember something I don't, go for it.
