So I just have one last source to check, right? All I have left after that is cosmetic changes! And this will be easy - it's a book in the carrel, the only reason I haven't done it yet is because the library kicked me out before I got there before Thanksgiving and I started with the hard things when I got back.

But I get to the carrel, and the book is not there.

But it has to be there! I used it the Monday before Thanksgiving. Where would it go?

I tear through my carrel, then the others around mine. Finally I get on the library website and look it up.

It's back on the shelf in the main campus library.

What the hell, world?! What the hell?!

asdfkljghsfk GOOD MORNING!
Quick post, because that last one was ominous and I'm sorry I left it that way for so long. ^^; I was posting from the FREE airport wifi, but they started boarding before I could type much, and I figured I would be able to follow up from home, but nooooooo.

See, there is internet at home, but there are also two parents to whom I have been bitching about how busy I've been and how behind I am. So the moment I got home...well, ok, they knew I'd been up for two days, so the moment I got home I had dinner and went to bed, but the moment I got up they were all, "Why don't you go read outside? Let me get this lounge chair for you. You sit down and start reading, I'll get you some water!" And so it went, for the entire Thanksgiving Break (when there weren't family-types over). I didn't even get to watch the Macy parade - as soon as I finished my breakfast, my mom was like, "Shouldn't you be reading?" and I was all, "...yes ma'am ._."

I swear. It felt like high school. And with all the coddling, they successfully guilted me into not rebelling and trying to sneak off to get at the internets. Plus, they totally would have caught me. :P On the plus side, though, I got through about 400 much-needed pages of Trusts & Estates and finished most of my Application to Get Permission to Apply to Take the Bar Exam. c.c I just lack the fingerprinting (apparently the cops were closed for Black Friday!) and the calling the DMV for my driving record (shyah, I didn't even try to call them that day).

Oh, right, the last post: I didn't finish editing the article. I was GOOD. I didn't get distracted (besides the occasional peek at LJ) the whooooooole night. But I still didn't finish. ; ; And I'm STILL not finished. But I got a stay of execution, at least!

Y'see, I thought I was just going to hit the microfiche to pick up some missing page numbers, but then I couldn't find the articles. As it turns out, the trouble is that some of Westlaw's news databases are just WRONG - wrong headline, wrong date - and this makes things very hard for me. But, whatever. I am clearly the most cursed Articles Editor ever. I should be done by tomorrow, though. And then it's back to the last 200 pages of T&E. c.c And then the rest of the reading! ^^

I am using this icon way too much lately. But it is necessary. ._.

Alright. This is my last night to get this done, or I'll have to take it home with me! So I'm all set to stay at school aaaalll night. Got my Awake tea; got my microwave popcorn; grabbed a parking space with a meter so I can go put some money in when the sun comes up! ...I'll probably end up popping into the OOC room again soon. It may slow me down, but it keeps me sane. Well, more sane than I would be otherwise. ^^;

Which reminds me: I apologize for any and all psychotic behavior and bizarre mood swings (see, e.g., post before last) over the past couple weeks! I intend to sleep for a day once I'm done, which should restore some cognitive function. ^^

Argh argh argh.

So, that article I’ve been editing for the past three weeks was due Monday. So on Sunday I decided that I would do whatever I could in the time remaining, then take the rest of the night off, booze up, and pass out. And so I did! After I sent it in I had a couple glasses of wine and started watching Diebuster (yay youtube). I got all nice and relaxed and, as intended, passed out (unfortunately it was at the computer, and I woke up a couple hours later in excruciating pain because the top of my computer desk is so damn high).

And then yesterday I find out that they want the second article finished by Thanksgiving.


To make matters worse, this week is the last week of my oral advocacy class, so I’ve got to focus on my speeches too. Fortunately I have finally broken through my wall, and though I’m still scared when I get up there, I can finally bully through it. I’ve gotten nothing but positive comments on my last couple of speeches, I’m so proud :D Friday’s speech is going to be the longest we’ve done and on a complicated topic, though, so I’m still a little worried.

See, the best thing about all of this, is that Thanksgiving signals the start of the finals prep period, so once I’m done with the second article I dive straight into that.

This is not the semester I was advertised! Third year is supposed to be fun :P

Ummm...so. Even though I don't like deleting what I've written, I think that in this case I will. You see,

A) I had two hours of sleep last night and have been unable to sleep at all tonight.

B) This is very frustrating. I have things to do today.

C) For whatever reason, my frustration at not being able to sleep has morphed into frustration at how completely this post fails to say what I meant.

D) I am much too far gone to rewrite the post. Heck, I was too far gone to write it when I wrote it.

E) I think that deleting the post, since I can't rewrite it, might help purge some of the not-sleeping frustration that has inexplicably become post frustration and help me get to sleep.

So that's what I'm doing. ^^;;

Oh yeah
I have a LJ! Hello, LJ!

Hmmm. What better way to greet LJ than...A QUIZ!!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The West
The South
The Inland North
North Central
The Northeast
What American accent do you have?
Take More Quizzes

Why, quiz, I am from Atlanta! How did you know? I swear the people who tell me I have a southern accent just want to believe I do. Or have hideo...er, strong accents themselves (Boston, OMG). It's interesting that west beats south, though. I've only been west of the Mississippi twice.



...I'll make a substantive post eventually. For now, back to editing!

As I suspected, work has eaten me alive, and my mother is cramming in all the stuff that I couldn't do over the week into the weekends. This is the first time I've been home early enough to touch the computer. ; ;

Get up, get ready, go to work; go home, eat dinner, go to bed.

And now it's bedtime...

I accidentally stumbled across an mp3 of Ievan Polkka, the song from the leekspin flash, and thought I'd share. Since I don't have my own hosting thingie, yousendit will have to do!

Ah, here's the culprit behind the IQ-Challenge thing. Given that he's so open about it, I doubt there's any porn or other maliciousness to follow.

Some of the comments he quotes are kind of funny. "I was just mystified as to why hundreds of people were advertising proudly that they had IQs just above brain damage on their LJs. I mean, outside of a Paris Hilton fan community."

Apparently some people were gloating about being smarter than all of their friends, which was what he expected to happen. And how dense am I? I thought the discrepancy was a mistake when I posted, when it turns out it was the whole point. ^^;

Oh, Test Your IQ!, you and your broken code. I refuse! I shall show my results to the world without your weirdness!

My...heavily skewed results. I'm no genius, people. This thing is way too easy. ^^;

Also, that bunny is really, really creepy. It clearly eats people.

According to my subconscious, Unicron is not a giant planet-eater. He is, in fact, a unicorn.

I have the most cracked-out dreams when I take naps. ^^

I lived! I lived! Ahahahahahahahahha ; ;

...You see, Wed night, I finished a paper. 10 pages, double spaced, not due till Friday - for once, I didn't procrastinate! I was so proud!

Thursday morning, I decided to check the instructions on the class website to make sure I didn't miss anything I should have touched on. I had been going off what the teacher had said in class till this point, see. All she said was ten pages. And of COURSE she meant double spaced. Everyone wants double spaced!

But no. Oh, no, not her. She wanted ten pages, SINGLE SPACED.

I've been living at the library ever since. Didn't sleep a bit. And my back still hurts from those chairs. ; ;

In the end, I got the length she wanted. I'm afraid to look at it now, though. You people know how I write when I'm sleepy. c.c A couple nights ago I managed to leave an entire sentence that I thought I had erased in a pose. But whatever. It's done!

So much hate for the end of semesters.

Alright, that's it! No more RPing at 4am on weekdays! It may be fun, but I am completely and utterly dead today. Three times in class today I'd start writing stuff down but fade out in the middle, then look down and see three lines of f's with no clue what I was trying to type.

It's not even as if I can RP properly by then. I'm generally completely irrational by 2am. ^^

First Post! And log tomfoolery
Aha, an LJ at last, complete with nonsensical user name! And here's a log to inaugurate it! It's just some factional radio chatter, so there's no point in putting it on the community. Wrath tells Envy he found Lust! And since Envy was at work and I wasn't expecting Envy to pop on the radio all of the sudden, neither of us are very quick, so the rest of the Syndicate fills in the gaps. ^^ If nothing else, this log is funny for the fact that, with some small exceptions, the overall Syndicate reaction to a comrade in trouble is to ramble about their favorite ways to wreak vengeance/crush their enemies.

Saving people?? Pfft, just skip to the retribution!Collapse )
