So. I'm going to Singapore.

I don't really feel prepared, and I'm a little nervous, but more excited than anything else. Household's felt stifling these days - I don't know if it's always been like that and I just didn't notice recently because I was running through the wringer at school or if it's because there's been a lot going on for my family as of late. Either way, I think toughing it out on my own for two months will be good for me.

Been spending most of my time making sweet love to my PS3, as he has been FOREVER ALONE for quite some time now. I was supposed to get some writing and file fixing and marathoning done, but Dragon Age was just too shiny for me. ;; As it is, though, the game was totally worth it. I'm kind of glad I didn't have to spend a cent for it too.

Am resisting the urge (and failing) to write Dragon Age fic. Alistair, he is a puppy. And Zevran is my sexy bitch.

Yesterday was actually some kind of crazy... in the rush of stuff that I had to two for the past two weeks, I forgot to mention here that two of my closest friends had elected to get married on the same day. That pretty much left me scrambling all over the place to prepare, and then zipping from one place to the next on the day itself.

Fun times, though, if not a tad awkward, on occasion. As to why, I don't really want to say here. But I saw old faces, got to smoke in good company, ate nice food and generally enjoyed myself, even if I officially hate wearing long gowns. XD

Now before I go back to my downloads and my tagging and my gaming, an open meme for all you RPers out there looking to do some kinky stuff:

[open RP Post] Marry/Fuck/Hatesex Rough It Out/Tie Me Up/7 Minutes in Heaven @ sexhibitionists!

Aaaaand fic pimps.

► PERSONA 3. Minato & Minako // In a silent language
► PERSONA 4. Kanji & Naoto // The need to hold still
► SENGOKU BASARA. Koujurou // Too much love will kill you in the end
► GINTAMA. Takasugi // Will you get your wish?
► SOUL CAMPAIGN. Dojima & Roy // Memoirs of an amnesiac
► SOUL CAMPAIGN. Seimei & Sasuke // Your sweet symmetry, all shattered
This is so overdue, it ain't funny.

+ I managed to submit my paper as planned! I also finished my teacherly work, although it took a lot longer than it should have. Lol, vacation mode. Good job, brain.
+ I may have discovered something that could land me a research scholarship thing in Japan.
+ This semester ended with a bang and lovely family things.
+ Slept over at the Cheng Chua pad since Khursten is house sitting.
+ RP is starting to lose its flavor.
+ Fandom never gives me pretty things. :|
+ NaNoWriMo is coming up. I need to get my ass in gear and start warming up with ficcage. Undecided on what project to do, though.

And the long versions! )

The cat has greatly missed me, it seems, and it is also time for dinner.
I set this up a few days ago.

all kink, all porn, all day, any day.

Join it, or stalk it. Whatever goes, goes. ♥

Quick real life updates and good news: school is nearly out, and since ADMU seized the UAAP cup for the third time, I've a surprise long weekend.

Lit 13 pups are enjoying Heavy Rain immensely, now that they've gotten a hang of the controls. We've got people peeking in from the other classes too, marveling at the fact that there's a class full of lucky bastards who get to idle out their last two weeks of lessons on a PS3 game.

Managed to get accepted to a conference that'll take place in Singapore in December. [ profile] khursten will be with me, and we are both very excited at the prospect of molesting [ profile] tasogareika lollygagging in good company.

Birth By Sleep should be eating up my spare time, cept my copy is fucked up. Cables for my PS3 have been eaten by my house too, so I'll have to go to Greenhills very soon and solve BOTH those problems, from the looks of it.

One more paper to write, then papers to check, then we're free to roll right down to the fun stuff.
Our PLDT DSL line appears to have completely killed itself - it just died overnight a few days back, and hasn't come on again. I tried calling them up, and they said they'd get back to me and file a report.

They haven't gotten back to me, and I doubt that they ever filed anything.

Philippine Internet: Made of Fail.

Currently running on smartBRO - I've been meaning to get a prepaid dongle thing for myself for quite some time now, so I guess this is all right.

If there is one good thing, though, about not having a fast and stable connection that I can keep on for ages, it's that I can let my brain idle more. For one, I usually hit the PC right after I roll out of bed and check things/tag around THEN end up rushing to get ready to go. Now I wake up, roll around, eat a proper brunch and prepare my things at my leisure, since I get lazy at the thought of setting up my laptop just to connect.

Speaking of brain idling: I'm not sure if it's a sign of age or exhaustion. I was totally internetless on Friday night, which left me with so many options on what to do. I ended up doing nothing but flop around in bed. It was oddly nice. o_o

Maybe I should take that as a sign and start shaving away at the the things I think I need to do or think about but actually don't.

Last full month of the semester has arrived, and not too much has changed. Students are a little less annoying, although I'm still having some trouble with the usuals. I'll write a longer entry on them sometime soonish, or maybe tell whoever wants to hear about it.

I was supposed to review the entire set of Philippine Speculative Fiction novels for the POC Review, but the project ended up falling through.

...sob, all of my effort. I suppose I can use it for something else...

Grad studies class is picking up again, since we haven't been able to meet each other nearly as much as we're supposed to. Got a report on Paradise Lost, which isn't really coincidental - my professor knows that I used the epic poem for my undergrad thesis. I've brought home the book I used as my primary source, and will be rifling through my notecards before I read through the whole thing to see if there's anything that I can use.

On that note, I've been meaning to go over my undergrad thesis and see if I can revise it and make it conference-paper or journal-worthy. Might as well: it'd actually be a waste to let all of that research gather dust.

I occasionally get worried that I might be going too slow with my scholarly shenanigans.

Then I remember that I intend to do this my whole life anyway, along with whatever else I can manage to get done. Should stop belittling my own achievements too - that's always good for one's self-esteem.

Why society is so obsessed with people hitting "success" at a young age is beyond me. Sure, some of us don't have a choice, but let's admit it - most of us do, and just pretend that we don't. Seriously, guys: if you end up killing yourself in pursuit of your goals, there doesn't seem to be a point to it.

This weekend was pretty nice, since I got to watch some sophomore Asian History sections duke it out in Bel Field via Kibasen, and I got to roll around with [ profile] khursten even if she turned me into her slave labor at her office. Sunday was fun, too - went to the Esteban household for my cousin Jonat's birthday, and it's been a while since I've spoken to him and his siblings.

I now kind of want to invest in an iTouch or something like it, though. MUST RESIST AND SAVE UP FOR SPEAKERS/MONITOR/EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE/WINDOWS 7. ;A;

RP eats up a crap load of my time, yes, and is sometimes more stressful than it is worth. I've met a lot of people through it, though, and nothing beats being able to log with and plot with people who truly matter to me. Plus, I've got to admit it: I RP for the game, not for the company. Anything can be done if it means pushing the game forward.

Still, I should strike a balance between the roleplay and my writing. I haven't been writing all that much these days.

...Which might actually be less of a problem created by RP, and more because of RL. This year was even crazier than last year, now that I think about it. I'm often too tired or washed out to do anything with myself at the end of each day.

Interestingly enough, though, I have started on several short stories. I didn't used to do short stories, as some of you know. Let's just see how things turn out. o3o

Livejournal staff people have to stop breaking things that work just fine.

Note to self: check your flist more often.
Recent shenanigans on Plurk had me digging up the first version I had of this meme, which promptly sent me on a nostalgia trip. And awakened my OCD tendencies.

SO ANYWAY HERE THE UPDATED LIST THING, for comparison! And great justice!

A GINORMOUS LIST IS GINORMOUS, once again. And organized differently now! )

I should do this yearly or something, to see how it evolves. o3o

Huhu, crammed the last two days into one entry. HEAD'S UP FOR MORE IMAGES~~~

Parts I and II are here and here, btw!

Day Three (May 31). )
Ask me any RP-related question at all! About muses, games, writing style, what have you!


World of Darkness campaign was awesome, as per usual. Our party is so gloriously fucked.

EVERYBODY SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [ profile] yukitsu! ♥♥♥

I have to stop forgetting to check my LJ. I mean, I always get these vague thoughts like hmm, maybe I should skim the flist! but then one thing happens and another thing and, next I know it, I'm coming back after a week to over 400 entries. ;;

So. Life bits.

SCHOOL; not taking summer class, at least not officially... my colleague who's teaching the Cultural Studies elective has allowed me to sit in on her sessions indefinitely, free of charge. [ profile] khursten is with me, and now we keep flinching at words like 'commodification' and making stupid Marxist jokes that only we can get.

TEACHING; handling one Literature 14 class, and it's been pretty good so far. Kids are quiet but receptive, although I think they might still be intimidated by me. They all get this deer-in-headlights look whenever I throw a question at them.

Also: we need to seriously work on how to read poems properly. Their first group paper was a little... yeah.

RP; Flaking in and out. I need to find my groove again without compromising all of the other things that I need to do. ._. Getting better at it now, though, but... yeah. I know that I owe [ profile] nique big time for not being around in Viva, or doing my Julia app. That's just one thing that I haven't been able to get to. orz

DRIVING; that's right, I'll be driving starting next week. Got the student permit and everything. THIS IS HOW MANY YEARS OVERDUE.

LIGHTS OUT; in a week. Motherfucker.

WORLD OF DARKNESS; returned to my game with the usual suspects, which only made me want to write fanfic for our new party AND try and resurrect my own campaigns with my own set of players. I realize I have horrible luck with tabletop campaigns, see... my DMs disappear on me, for one reason or another.

That being said: IS ANYONE INTERESTED IN being my guinea pig JOINING A SESSION? D:

WRITING; Have started reconnecting, once again, with Endtimes, and it's working out so well. I've also kicked off a possible project with Mahar, which will have gratuitous amounts of gay and angst.

OTHER HOBBIES; got a heck load of files to sort out once I can sit still long enough. Schedule's pretty brutal, so I'm oftentimes too exhausted or brain dead to really want to do anything beyond stare at my PC screen and chat with people. I have started working through the comics I have on queue, though, along with the series I've been downloading. Current obsession: The Tudors. Rife with historical inaccuracies, I know, but. The costumes.

Cross Game was fabulous as well. Now I kind of want to pick up more of the mangaka's work and check them out, based on the recommendations I got~

So, flist, what did I miss?
