A Fine Line - Between Chaos and Creation

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy; I don't mind, I think they're crazy...


[sticky post]Master Post - UNIT!100 Table

Alright.  So, to kick this off, here's my table.  I want to actually have a posted table this time, so as to keep track of which stories I've done, as I'm not doing them in numerical order.

So, without further ado... my Big Dang Table!

I'll be adding the links to the entries as I complete them here and there.

[Note: I have no idea if this shows up in peoples' f-lists properly, but I'm not entirely sure why it doesn't look right (ie: just looks like text with no table borders) on my journal.  I promise it's a table, though.]

Life update/rant
I Am Clever

Hey, so I haven't been on here in ages (what else is new). Been spending a lot more time on Tumblr and such losing my mind over my renewed/newly deep dive into the Queen fandom since Bohemian Rhapsody came out. I even got so inspired I wrote my own story series/created a Queen AU of my own (something I didn't think I'd ever do, but what can you do when inspo strikes?), and it's almost 90,000 words deep with all the fics I've written since January (also something I never thought I'd do, or even be capable of).

With that said, this past month/3 weeks/since the beginning of April has been a bit of a rough time, and I think I've vented enough in my Discord chat and on my Tumblr account for now. I'm bringing my troubles over here, bc I know there's no crossover between my Tumblr life and my life on here, bc it's easier to format and put together a post on here without it falling to bits (Tumblr's platform sucks, truly), and also bc I'm banking on this being such a dead platform that no one will see this rant in general and I can effectively scream into the void without being heard.

So, with that said, here's my list of issues.

First world problems ahead.Collapse )

NaBloPoMo 2018 - Day Thirty
Bung a Rock at It

Day Thirty! Finally reached the end of the NaBlo journey for 2018, and I'm pleased with how much better it's gone this year than in the past! Only 5 backposted entries; entries with far more substance in them (yes, they're still just updates on my life, but that's still an improvement from before), and best of all, I didn't leave everything to the last minute of the year itself! We don't talk about that, though. Don't look at me and my 2017 shame.

Thanks for a great year, and hopefully now that I have a better vehicle for writing, I can update some of my projects that I'm always talking about.

See you around!

(What do you know - right before the end, and not only do I have to backpost, but I completely missed the day entirely. Whoops? On to write about yesterday as though I didn't miss a beat. ;P)

Today I got the majority of cards sorted for the recitals and found a few I was missing from my list in general (double whoops). Now to just get those ones finished, and everything will be perfect! *knocking on wood turns into loud pounding*

Hung out with a friend after work today, and we watched Mr. Bean's Holiday while Tim was out working a hockey game. That movie never gets old, and it was just the distraction I needed.

Only 5 days til recitals!

Another day, another dollar. Today I finished buying all the teacher gift cards, as well as 95% of the Christmas card/button sorting. Now all that’s left is to sort those by recital, and we’re golden!

I also started putting together a list of things I want to buy/do for the music studio now that I have my Supreme Executive Powers™. How’s that for forward thinking?

Only 6 days til recitals now!

Programs are ordered! T-Minus one week until recitals! It's getting so close I can almost taste it!

All I really have left to do now is to finish organizing all the Christmas cards and buttons, and possibly print some more flyers for the recitals. But mainly the Christmas cards (and to buy the last of the teacher gift cards).

Things have fallen together so well this time around, I'm so pleased. Teachers got back to me quickly with song lists, people (mostly) registered by the deadlines, cards were signed ASAP... this must be what administrative/organizational heaven must feel like.

I'm still knocking on wood, though, because you can never be too careful. But so far, I'm very happy with how things have gone. (I think I'll still be holding onto a stress knot in my gut until recitals finish, though)

What a day today has been! Getting the tree yesterday spurred Tim and I on to do some much-needed cleaning around the house, and it was a very productive day of it. We managed to clear out all garbage and recycling, do some general tidying, do all dishes, and do the laundry!

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “who cares? She cleaned up the house - everyone has to do that. What’s so special about this?”

I’ll tell you what is - we haven’t had a chance to really do this much for a while. What with both of our work schedules, Tim’s school schedule, and the like, it’s been too long since we were able to get this much done in one go. And let me tell you something; it’s such a relief to see things that much cleaner. It’s not 100%, but it’s a damn sight better than it was yesterday.

Also, I dug out some Christmas ornaments! No Batman yet (we think he’s at Tim’s brother’s house with more of our stuff), but I got a placeholder for our Dark Knight treetopper!


Ta da!


Yes, I do indeed have a Beatles ornament as our treetopper right now. They’re not Batman, but they’re the best option I have in the meantime. It seemed fitting, anyway.

Only four more days until NaBlo is finished for the year! Feels like it weirdly flew by this time (and I don’t think it’s entirely because I have a better laptop). See you all tomorrow!

Happy Novembermas, everyone! It’s now officially one month until Christmas, and we commemorated this by getting ourselves a new tree for the apartment!


We haven’t put Batman up on top yet, but I’m sure we will in the next day or so.

I’m glad to finally have some decorations up, even if it’s just the one tree for now. :)

RIP Freddie Mercury; 27 years ago today. :(

In other news, recital progress continues to chug along nicely, and I got my list of responsibilities as AD, which will kick in once recital stuff passes. There’s a lot, but I’m sure I’ll be able to handle it.

In other other news, why am I in pain again today? UGGGHHHHH NOT COOL. >:(

...yeah, I have no excuse for this one. It just got away from me. :(

I’m in pain right now, so I’m not really in a mindset to write a longer entry. See you all tomorrow.
