"The time has come," the Walrus said,
              "To talk of many things:
            Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
              Of cabbages--and kings--
            And why the sea is boiling hot--
              And whether pigs have wings."

I probably drop off from the internet for little while, my dad is in the hospital. He going to be scheduled for open heart surgery, maybe on Friday if no further complications arise. I'm nervous wreck right now and trying not to breakdown. The drive to hospital is also not doing any favors with my anxiety.

I'm not going to class today but I will go tomorrow. I have to pick up my W2 and my dad’s bonus check tomorrow. I don't know what to do today.

Sharing happy music, videos, and/or anything to keep my mind off my troubles, I will appreciates it if you do.

I’m finally enrolled at school (I did it today), I will start later this month and I’m so fucking anxious. I’m excited and now I need to find way to relax. Jesus, I don’t what to do with myself now. I’m overwhelmed and I’m so happy that financial aid ladies where so helpful.
crisporres: (text → today mission)
Bathroom drain is unclog, finally yeah. Pain medication is taken; Costochondritis is a bitch (It felt like I was having a heart attack or a serve panic attack at Target at all places).

My lovely mother found a part-time job and I nervously gathering courage to enroll into school to receive a diploma. Money I wish I had it so I paid for school, looking for a good loan is making sweat and cringe. Horrible researcher, I am truly can't seem to be able to used internet to find important information.

Making a decision to buy a Kindle or save my money for school is tough. Saving money that what I got to do.

My sister made have PCOS, scariness, maybe I shouldn't be afraid but anything medical make me feel scared. Her doctor apportionment is today. If she does have then I have to go get tested and my sister already she didn't like the specialist she seeing.(Test was inconclusive but she has to take metofmin.)

I'm enjoying my experience with pinboard. I’m still taking my time fixing my bookmarks but I very happy that I have all of them. Looking for more people to add my network, my interests tend to change every month so I need to find more multi-fannish people.

Posted new recs here.
crisporres: (Default)
Delicious, ugh, I rather not talk about it the change did upset me. Almost make me cry but I blame that on my hormones. Shell out cash for a pinboard account, here my new place. I have no idea when I will have the time to organize but it all there. (I hate saying that this, but this the first time the internet ever disappoint me. Pathetic I know but I just have to move on and I need to back-up more regularly.)

I'm reading all over the place. I really don't know what I want to read right now. Read some Final Fantasy VII fics and one great Pride and Prejudice Genderswap AU.

I got a flu shot yesterday, my left arm is still stiff & sore, and I can't type much right now without feeling the pain so I won't post any recs today.
crisporres: (Default)
I'm alive, mostly. I finally realize how addicted I'm to the Internet. I went through withdrawal not having it in the house or on my mobile. I'm slowly reading fic I can save from the library to read later at home. I hate the nearest library to my house only allow me to use Internet Explorer. I really hate that browser, always giving me a headache.

I'm slowly trying to read real books to curb my withdrawal. I totally feel like it not working but I'm trying.

I don’t think I will be trying to post regular recs post again. I don’t have the energy to do it. It makes me sad to think that I don’t have internet at home.

I finally got to watch Captain America, thank you dad, which made me happy and I also finally watch the final season of Avatar: the Last Airbender. (Thank you nicktoons.) Zuko is my new favorite, love how he progress as a character.
crisporres: (devdas → chandramukhi → sorrow)
No longer have internet at home and I'm sad. Well I'm sad but not bc of the internet. Depression can you please go away.

I'm on my phone typing this, about to go to the doctor. Dad is not doing so well. Hopefully can have some good news later today.

eta. At the library, yeah for the glorious internet on a bigger screen, thank God. Doctor says my dad maybe have Thyroiditis. Ugh, why can't my family be healthy. My sister also went to see doctor today bc of missing periods. I pray it nothing serious like cancer. I hope everyone has their health.
crisporres: (bandom → travie → dork)
Just receive my paid account for a whole year, yeah. First time I ever brought time for myself ever and I'm all excited for more icons. Wednesday and Thursday is my last days to work at Tensar. Researching and thinking about application process for school is driving my ass wild. I'm freaking out. I don't know what to do and I'm totally out of it.

Sunday at work I was melting, I didn't know I could sweat like that. I'm not even going to tell what the temperature I was working in just hot to never work in that condition again in my life; glad my time is almost over. Nervous to get another job though.

Post new recs and upload whole bunch of account on my other account. About to change my mood theme once I upload the photos.

My mom and sister bought me Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink and The Great Gatsby (One of my favorites).

I think I'm going to buy myself a Kindle, but I should save for school, tough decisions.

I'm alive just been working and for three days straight I had to be outside being around people I don't want to be around for ten hours straight. I'm exhausted. Seriously can't wait for night shift after this weekend. I hate working with around people my age. I seriously have inferiority complex and hate social interactions. I hate talking about or hearing people having social lives especially from college students. I know they talk about me behind my back so whatever I'm there to be paid. (I’m terrified of going back, I really hate being around

My dad co-workers are jerks and we can't help being passive, can't even muster passive-aggression. smh

I'm couple of shades darker, which I'm cool with if I wasn't for the irritation of itchy skin.

Bought some mangas for my sister and bought Last Exile for myself.

Behind in reading two BBB stories I read last weekend (I think) and never finish them. I don't fill up to trying to catch up with them. My bookmarks are in chaos and I need to go to sleep.

Omg, today was a crazy day, at work we had a huge ass fire near the plant. I'm also pissed that my dad coworkers is putting the blame on my daddy. *rage* Seriously, for a first job, it kind of exciting, one thing thinks I like working at the company is that I don't have to talk to whole lot of people. One thing I hate is that I end up with a sore back and bruises.

I don't know how I'm going to resolve my issues with driving. Panic attacks I hate them.

I'm off for the weekend so I can get caught up on my reading.
crisporres: (spn → castiel → hot mess)
Today is my day off, I work two days now and my body is sore. My job is okay but defiantly needed the rest since I never physically exert myself this much before. I had to get new shoes for work today (tiny blisters on my feet), and ate well cause parents took me to Friday's. Sister was sweet yesterday; she made me doctors and lay out my clothes so I didn't have to get them when I took a shower. My family can be awesome at times. Dad also gave me watermelon so I'm happy camper that is tired too.

A wicked storm is happening right now, the wind is blowing hard. I'm not reading anytime right now cause I'm tired. Right now listening to Blacking It Up podcast, love it.

Tomorrow is my dad's surgery and I hoping for good things to happen. I check a whole bunch of books today so I'm going to read while I wait. Hopefully I don't get upset being in the hospital; put me on the list of people who doesn't like visiting there. My dad told me who going to be there for four days. I prod talk to him on the phone. My dad bff is coming over Saturday and I'm going to make lasagna.

Funeral place is run by jerks, just sayn'. I hate shady people. I'm happy that Delicious has a new owner. I'm going to start using Readability and see if it those some good, my eyes do lots of reading and I don't want to strain them.

I'm so excited for Captain America: First Avenger. Cap is my second favorite superhero ever; I can't wait to view it. The cgi team did a good job making Chris Evans looks so tiny.


Once I get my first paycheck, I'm going to splurge on Doctor Who DVDs, also totally spreading hints to my friends to get them for my birthday.

I'm sending out good vibes for Alabama since tornadoes torn up some parts of the state and hopefully no major tornadoes hit my home state GA. Though we are getting many thunderstorms and it is freaking hot. Humidity is not good for my hair.

Listen: The Glitch Mob - A Dream Within A Dream; I like this track.

Today recs post in two parts: one and two

Walk a mile today with my mom, we going try to continue everyday maybe try to do it in the morning.

Funeral is going to be held on May 7 in Kissimmee, Florida plenty of time for family to get there. My uncle is in Hawaii and my cousin is in Afghanistan. My dad has surgery this Thursday. Hopefully there is not going to be any complications. I'm going to finally purchase some paid time in May for six months.

For Three Weeks For DW, I'm going to purchase paid time, post more regularly, and comment some more. I was thinking of making a comment rec post for fanvids on my journal but I don't feel up to do it.

Last Friday was hectic, my Father's heart wasn't in great shape had to go to the hospital, a stent was done and my aunt came with her kids. Aunt and her kids got on my nerves and spoke my mind. Aunt cause some drama and was immature enough to post about it on Facebook. My period started when they left on Wednesday. I was glad to kick them out of here. I did a whole lot of cleaning and my grandmother is now combative. I hate that is not who she is but all I can to do is make whatever days left she have are good. I'm tired and I should get some sleep. I wasn't on the internet and I didn't post recs yesterday. I will make it up next week.

Still can’t read when I’m angry, glad that my mom is my mom, check out some books from the library, can always talk to my friend when I need an outlet. I walk every day, and glad I’m rockin a tan.

I hope this post make some sense since I’m both sleep deprived and haven't drank much water today.

WEBCOMIC I’m in love with it totally will spend money on this: Cura Te Ipsum written by Neal Bailey and drawn by Dexter Wee.
crisporres: (devdas → chandramukhi → sorrow)
I'm full of frustration. My sister and I have to take care of my grandma today. Today is very stressful, my mom took my dad for his heart exam and found he my dad has to go get emergency heart surgery.

Hopefully I will hear some good news and I really don't want my aunt to be here tomorrow. I'm in the mood to rip people apart right now.

Today I'm feeling selfish so I want to say fuck it world.

I don’t want to be sad just days before I got my dad to watch Doctor Who, so he can watch the new series with me.

I better get back to cleaning and eat something before I past out.

Walking everyday is tough man, I gotten a tan and I love it. My grandma is not getting better and I running out of patience. I'm cleaning more than I have clean before. Made a new rec post and been watching a whole lot of fan vids today. Maybe I post a rec a fanvid post. My aunt is coming this weekend and I want to kill her.

I have a tumblr now. Where is my life coming too? *shakes head*

My cousin finally wrote to me and he told me I look good with make-up. Lol I miss that idiot. My grandma is still weak and she looks like she could go out any minute. I need to fix my sleep again and wean myself off the internet before my brain overload.

[misfits] untouchable by [livejournal.com profile] crickets - Great Alisha character study in vid form, the song is so perfect and the editing is great.

I will miss Dwayne McDuffie.


Hilarious and I have to share it.

February was not a great month. I finally update my other journal. [Link]

My grandmother had a stroke and she doing much better now. Ugh, Real Life is getting in my way. I haven’t done much reading or commenting since I still don’t have internet because Hughes Net is an ass. I’m not comfortable using my mobile for the internet. I’m feeling pretty much lackluster.

Driving during a thunderstorm to my new place is seriously scary, yesterday totally proved that.

My Bffs )
crisporres: (text → today mission)
I don't have the internet access at home. I'm all sad-face about it that Comcast and Hughes Net are such big jerks. I'm at the library Conyers. Y'll this library is gorgeous and it huge for all the libraries I have ever visit in Georgia.

It has finally stopped raining here.

Leo & Tom Bromance, I need more, or you know people writing me fic about them.

I can't find any downloads links for this show and I actually want to see it.

Recs

Inception:
Anabasis by coldthermistor - AU. Dominic Cobb is a man on the run. He's on the run from a marriage slowly falling apart, from being framed for a crime he didn't commit...and on the run from the memories of a betrayal that haunts him still. He remembers little of the night except for one thing, burned into his mind: Arthur betrayed him. Arthur cannot be trusted. Now, a business man, Saito has come forward: with what seems to be Cobb's best hope of learning the truth about that night so many years ago...and with Cobb's best hope of clearing his name. In return, he only wants an impossible job performed. Inception. There is no room for failure. The stakes are too high. But there is an enemy haunting Cobb's footsteps...an enemy wearing the face of a man that Cobb knows only too well: Cobb's former point man, Arthur... Novel idea, novel-sized, and it brought me to tears, especially the parts with Mal. It made me speechless.(80,617 words)

In a phrase to cut these lips by missy7280 - The military didn't quite know what it was getting into when it created dream-sharing. This is a story about what went wrong. It's a story about dreams. It's about forgetting, and also remembering. But most of all, this is a story about love. I love the exploration of Arthur and Cobb relationship dynamic especially in the flashbacks. The back-story was so interesting, plausible, and left me wanting more. Cobb is so flesh out with all his flaws but it not overly dramatic and I like that. I love Ariadne is in here and that the author wrote what Cobb's feelings about her were. Just go read it, an excellent Arthur/Cobb story that not too angsty. (27,764 words)

Sherlock BBC:
Three’s a Crowd… isn’t it? by laura_trekkie - Sherlock watches as John and Lestrade go from friendship to much more, but a run in with Moriarty makes him face his own feelings for his two friends. (25,094 words)

Grey Is My Favourite Colour by Snow - A "5 Times Lestrade went to Sherlock and 1 Time Sherlock went to Lestrade" fic. (2,575 words)

Sherlock has taken over my mind. The proof is in my delicious.

Star Trek:
The Last Two Tours by castofone - Three years at the academy as best friends turned into ten years in the black as something more. It is a series of up and downs, of happiness and sadness as Jim and Bones share their lives with each other aboard the starship Enterprise. The Last Two Tours is a story told in two opposing linearities - Jim's which progresses forward in time and McCoy's which goes backwards in time. Tears in my eyes, one of the few fanfics I read that exhibit the realistic pull and push of a long-term relationship. Yes, the ending is sad but I think it a worthwhile read if you don't want to read anything fluffy. It's has a standalone sequel that I haven't read yet. (38,789 words)

More pictures to come. My friend Amber did my make-up and I felt very pretty that day.

Yeah!

I have the internet now and can now read on a bigger screen. I read a ton of stuff this January and have some porn battle ficlets to feedback on. Some much goodness in this round.

While having no internet access expect through my cell phone the sis and I geek out watching Lord of the Rings. I watch season four of The Universe and learn so much more. Gah. I love this series. Wish I had a brain for math and shit.

So far this year has started really good. \m/
