I'm going to have to go for an incomplete in this PP&P class. That's just all there is to it. Damn it.

Did some crappy writing today. Started my [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang. Looks like Hermione gen (maybe) with a side of Harry/Draco. Might be fun. I don't know. Haven't written Harry Potter fic in... three years or so.

I bought a mini-to-DVI adapter so I can hook up my Macbook to my 22" monitor, mostly so I can edit Deadsville with three windows open side-by-side at once. Still don't feel like working on it, but I'm encouraged by Bekah's initial thoughts on it, and I've been thinking about maybe developing the wives a little more. I'm worried about going too much into Closer territory, though. I cannot possibly be the only person who expected Clive Owen/Jude Law a little bit in that one.

I have nothing of substance to say. Made it home from DC safely. I took tons of pictures at the Smithsonian, but then my camera battery died halfway through the forensic anthropology exhibit and stupid me didn't take the charger, so nothing else.

I'm still exhausted from everything, and the pile of things I have to do and haven't for my PP&P class just got one more thing taller today. I think I might have to withdraw from this class, I'm sorry to say.

And Big Bang summaries are up! I can't get over HOW MANY THERE ARE, OMG. Some sound kind of lame, some sound like stuff I would read on a slow fic day, and some I want to read immediately. Which, really, is par for the course.

Anyway, off to class!

EDIT: I broke down and got a Dreamwidth, thanks to the awesomesauce [livejournal.com profile] bloody___reject, so add me! I'm trying to hunt people down, but I think many of you selected names that are not your lj names.

I'm rather unhappy with how Fur Fag turned out, but whatever. I got that bitch done and posted relatively on time. I was reading over it this morning and it's actually not as bad as I thought it was last night, so yay!

About to go fail an exam. I missed it earlier this week due to food poisoning, and now I don't remember anything I studied before.

Still haven't done my project for People Plagues & Pestilence that was due on Wednesday. I think I'm going to have to pull out of the Washington DC trip Anthro Club is taking this weekend to the Smithsonian, simply because I have too much to do this weekend in terms of homework. Blech.


As for SPN 4.20... I was kind of meh about it. I wasn't giving it my full attention, but I thought it was kind of boring. Not without its merits, but overall, I was kind of unimpressed. ♥ Misha though.

Right then. On to exam, then a few hours of working on Big Bang. I'm at 19,370 right now with a scene and a half to write for this draft (having cut three scenes). I wrote over 6000 words last night to finish the J2_everafter thing, so writing is pretty much the last thing I want to do right now.

Exam went surprisingly well, but then again it was an essay exam and those are so subjective. I'm never sure how much detail to go into.

Just booked my hostel bunk in DC for this weekend. I'm so excited! I haven't been to the Natural History museum since middle school! And since I don't drive, I can work my little heart out on homework in the car. However, this means we're leaving Ohio aroung 6:30 pm, so I'll have to finish and submit my Big Bang much sooner. LAAAAME.

Still can't decide on how to do the summary. I'm thinking I'll have that blurb I posted a few days ago, about silence and explosions or whatever, plus a second paragraph that's actually synopsis, i.e., "it started in med school, communication breakdown and inability to admit feelings, loving and being loved not mutually exclusive (yes, that is an Invisible Monsters reference--and dear god, I suddenly want a Sam/Dean AU of that, holy shit), agree to end it when wives and kids get involved, everythingokay 'til somebody admits love, everything goes to shit, happy ending. Also: ANGSTFEST 2009." I.e. WORST SUMMARY EVARRR.

So last night, when I posted that fic? I didn't even read it before I posted it. I just posted it and ran out the door to go to a club. International Dance Night, dude. I danced with a gay black man, a Mexican dude old enough to be my dad, and the most adorable Indian kid ever, not to mention this pathetically drunk grad student who was actually pretty cute (if he would've stopped breathing his stinky drunk breath on me and trying to talk about hyenas and how hard it is to be a male talking to females or something).

So... this is midterm week. I have two unfinished big fics due this week, but I have to admit that my two exams and a project are more important. So... I'm probably going to fail both BigBang and j2_everafter. SAD FACE.

The Indians just won, so I guess that's a plus. Trevor Crowe played!

[Poll #1383231]Those were the top three choices from the last poll. Just clicky. I don't care who you are, even if you're a random drive-by. I just want to see which name the internet likes best.

New layout, which I edited a bit from the original. Top bars bug me, so I had to fuck around with it to make it a sidebar. I still need to tweak it a little bit, but I'm pleased with it so far.

Went a bit tag-happy on this entry, too. Ha!

So much homework! No writing time for me. Dear week, you can end any time now, thanks. :(

It's a good thing they extended the deadline for [livejournal.com profile] j2_everafter, seriously. No way will it be done by Friday. I can do the 30th, though. This weekend is going to be a big ol' writing fest for my happy ass.

My mom came down for Easter on Sunday, so I sent my old white Macbook home with her so it can be her computer now. I cleared everything off the hard drive, except I forgot to clear out my iTunes library. Nice, because now she has the fourth season of SPN through episode 17 (I never got 18 transferred over), not to mention Dollhouse through episode 7. Weird, though, because I just know I'm going to get a phone call that's like, "Um, Torrie, I was playing iTunes on shuffle and this song came on about the actors who play the brothers on Supernatural being in love..." and I'm going to go, "Yeah... but it's true so it's okay."

Tonight we tried to video chat on iChat, but failed because her neighbors were using their wireless for once, and the connection kept dropping. Laaame. I wanted to see my kitties in real time!

Apparently it's taken until my junior year, but the liberal, environmentalist academia thing is really eating my brain. Going to a lecture tonight about carcinogens and the plastics/chemical industry (the Ohio River Valley is a huge chemical plant center). Not eating meat anymore if I don't know where it came from-- so luckily we have a farmer's market here that has local vendors who can certify that yes, they humanely raised that creature and butchered it themselves.

I think it comes from learning my rheumatoid arthritis is probably caused by the fact American society is too sterile and clean and obsessed with antibacterial stuff, leading to my bored and underworked immune system attacking my own joints, and that my menarche at nine years old is possibly the result of synthetic estrogens leaching from plastic baby bottles because my mother couldn't breastfeed... I need to do more research, but I think I'm going to do my 10-page research term paper for my History of Public Health Disasters class on the former topic.

And of course it's an icky, rainy day, so every joint in my body aches like hell. The knuckles in my hands are all swollen and stiff. God damnit, I'm twenty years old! This is ridiculous!

Onto happier stuff:

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] static_pixie!

Welcome new friends [livejournal.com profile] matty_parkman, [livejournal.com profile] ineffort, and [livejournal.com profile] morbidmuse!

And a J2 rec:

Edit by [livejournal.com profile] bittersplendor
And each time, with each touch that means more than it did before— before this, Jensen thinks, now there is this to lose.

I'm writing a scene in Deadsville/my Big Bang right now that's a lot like the argument/miscommunication the boys have in this, but it ends much happier here! :) This fic is a lovely little slice, but that line that doubles as the summary goes right to my gut and the places under my eyes that get hot when I want to cry. Go read it!

So my mother has this cat called Trooper. He's heinous. We completely hate each other, okay? He's big and bitchy, but he's pretty and fluffy and caramel colored, and I swear to god I just cast him as cat!Jensen in my [livejournal.com profile] j2_everafter without meaning to. So... no little black Binx. Instead we have big, rangy, light brown fluff.

Head, meet desk.

Angst-fu still broken. Tried to write some of Deadsville earlier. Failed.

Nine hours 'til my People Plagues & Pestilence class, and I still haven't done my project. Whoops. Anyone want to tell me (with references) what the three leading causes of death in Australia are?
