So I'm going through my posts on my journal just to see what I've written and... Good lord. I sound way more emo than I actually am. *rolls eyes at self*
Life may be notsome sometimes, but I actually have a lot going for me right now. I have AMAZING friends that I love with all of my heart, I'm discovering more and more music all of the time (which is so awesome, I can't even tell you), I'm confident in my decision to become a psychologist (and I'm determined to find a way to incorporate music into that somehow), and I have a fandom that I'm completely in love with.
This all seems like small stuff, but honestly? It really is the small stuff that matters. ♥♥♥
So rajkumari905 posted this fun little meme not too long ago and I decided to give it a go. =)
1. Reply to this meme by asking me for five words and I will give you five words that remind me of you.
2.Then post them in your journal and explain what they mean to you.
3. Keep in mind that if I don't know you that well, your words might end up kind of odd or weird. If I do know you, your words will probably be weird.
My words were:
I kind of love airplanes. They have this awesome ability to take me to the people that I love most in the world, so. Yeah. I think they're amaaaaaaaazing!
Airports, however, are the devil.
While I'm not fond of the franchise, it *did* introduce me to David Archuleta and David Cook. And they led me to join this amazing group and *that* led me to eight of the most wonderful people I have ever met. They're the loves of my life. ♥♥♥
David (AMAZINGNESS) Archuleta:
This guy is truly a light in this world of darkness. Nothing brings him down (when you're around) for long and he sees the silver lining in every situation. His voice is as pure as he is and you could say that he's the one that started it all for me. ♥♥♥
I'm not a fan of angst in RL, but in fic? If it's done right and has a happy ending I'm all for it. I won't read it if it doesn't. I guess I'm all about sunshine and rainbows. =D
Bahahaha! Kermit The Frog. Muppet Movie.
Best. Ever. EVER.
Also, I associate alligators with the wonderful and quirky Prianka now. XDDD ♥
In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer, and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it: post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?
I lost my aunt a few years ago to pancreatic cancer. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her.
I was saddened when they informed me that he had passed away a while ago.
They then told me that there was a memorial post for him and that I should look at it. Unfortunately, I had work, but as soon as work was over, I had planned on going to read it.
I am ashamed to say that it completely slipped from my mind that night. Not just for that night, either. This whole time, my mind has completely failed to bring the matter up again and seeing as I look mostly in my inbox and flist for posts, I had no reason that I could recall to go to the main site where the post is.
Today, I was going through a master list of fic posts and saw his user name. It sparked my memory (a little too late, I would say...) and I read the fics all of the way through. I felt strange for doing so. I didn't know this person while he graced this planet with his amazing presence, a presence that brightened his wonderful fics and touched so many lives. While I read, I felt like I shouldn't be laughing when his sense of humor shown through a character and I felt that it was wrong of me to melt into a puddle of goo when another character would show kindness or tenderness.
When I was finished reading his fics, I went immediately to the memorial post. There were several people that had known of him and then there were some that didn't, however, all of them had kind words to say about this person. Reading the comments brought home one of many things to me:
There was no shame in enjoying those wonderful stories of his. That was one of the reasons that he posted them. He had wanted people to read them and share in the love of these two people like he did. And there certainly isn't any shame in being one more person that had been touched by him and the love that he put into his work.
I had wanted to post a comment myself, but I felt that it would be inappropriate for me to do that for many reasons. However, I wanted to do something. Say something. So instead, I am posting this here in my journal because I would like for it to be known that there is one more person out there that much better for experiencing him, even if it was just through fics.
There were many individuals out there that cared a great deal about him and that were saddened by the loss. He was an amazing individual who's light shown through his works and his posts.
I know that he is in a better place now.
Rest in peace...
And I swear that if anyone says that Miley Cyrus and/or the Jonas Brothers are the new Beatles, I will have to get violent...
My blood is pumping, my heart is racing and I swear to all things Pete that my blood pressure is through the roof right now!
"Have you been exercising?" One might ask.
The answer: "Um, no. Watching the season premier of Criminal Minds."
Lame, I know, but I am totally buzzing right now from it. It had action, danger, a slight bit of humor and, yes, death. It was just amazing and I just had to write about it. Most of the people I know on lj are into Stargate and Ghost Hunters, but I just had to get this out.
I cried. That's how good it was and how sad I am for it. I don't cry very often. Not when I get hurt, not when I'm sick, not when I have just the crappiest day with work or family ever.
And especially not with TV shows or movies.
There are some people who will cry at the drop of a hat with a sappy or sad movie or show. Not me. I have cried a total of four times now because of something on film.
( Spoilers for Star Trek, Stargate, Criminal Minds Season 4 premierCollapse )Like I said, totally lame and sad of me. I know this and embrace my dorkness.
I cried and cursed at the writers of the show to make anyone want to cover sailor's ears, but (fortunately for the writers) one of my beloved characters lived to see another episode. An episode that looks intriguing...
So, I have this TV.
I've had it for about a year now, and it's a great TV. The thing is, I don't really watch it.
I paid a good amount of money for it and it's amazing, but it sits in my room and stays off most of the time. The only time I actually turn it on is when I watch Ghost Hunters, Criminal Minds, and of course, Stargate Atlantis.
Oh wait, that's right...
THEY'RE CANCELING SGA!!
How silly of me to have forgotten that one of the best shows that I have EVER watched(and I've watched a lot despite my recent not turing my TV on thing) is being f-ing canceled!
I am actually depressed about it. I know that it's just a show and they are just characters, but I'm still going to miss my weekly McKay fix. Stupid people for taking our show away from us!
So, sadly, my poor TV is going to have even less me time...
*curls up in a ball and sobs*
