Still Gleeking out over Glee. Also still haven't seen more than the first four episodes. But I thought it was relevant to mention, as it is my subject header.

I am so productive tonight!! I finished my NaNoWriMo and won the contest, I did work on my Spanish oral exam (although I need to study more and make notecards and stuff... but that'll probably happen more in the morning than now) and I sent out the Fullmusical Alchemist callbacks. I am so awesome.

Tomorrow will involve work on me finally really editing the FMuA script, and working on my Juliet app for Paradisa. Oh, and Chanukka.

As the holidays begin tomorrow, by the way... happy holidays, everyone!!  8D

So you know what's awesome?

Literally at the eleventh hour (with exactly fifteen minutes to spare), winning NaNoWriMo.

Like I just did.

That's what's awesome.
arthoniel: (Default)

In my new (and final) UWS essay, I literally begin the essay with a Spider-Man quote. I then continue on to talk about Star Trek. Finally, I write the essay itself about Stephen Colbert and how awesome he is. This is actually kinda cool.

Macaroni and cheese is surprisingly comfortable to sleep on.

Chocolate covered cookie dough bites are delicious.

I can't wait to spend the holiday season in New York~
...That being said, I wish it were warm. I miss warm. I want warm.

I don't have my first class tomorrow. So instead, I can sleep in. Ish. Still gotta get up at 10 to work on my paper/NaNoWriMo. But I can sleep in. Ish.

I got a friend hooked on Least I Could Do, and am now proud of myself.

I always find myself liking guys who are inaccessable. And the best part is? When a guy who is even remotely acceptable likes me, it scares the living crap out of me. Even if I kinda had a thing for him a little bit a little while back, that's almost entirely gone now, but... it could just be me going crazy from lack of sleep because LOL NANOWRIMO, but... what the hell. Just, what the hell. In conclusion: Guys are confusing, and BLAH RELATIONSHIP ISSUES WHY DO THEY EXIST WHEN THEY'RE NOT EVEN A THING?? (...It's 2:30 in the morning, shut up about my awful writing skills because IT'S 2:30 IN THE MORNING.) In my other conclusion: I only ever like guys who don't/can't like me back, and it sucks. Clearly, I are masochist. Hear me roar.

I actually used the phrase "See... Adam was secretly a ninja" in my novel. No, I'm not kidding. THAT IS HOW BAD MY STORY IS. God, I hate my NaNo this year. That being said... I'm at 43,380 words. I may yet actually do this. It will be one of the most extraordinary things that has ever happened to me if I can manage to pull this off.  XD

Right. My UWS paper. I got this. I should at least finish the intro and an outline...  ;;

arthoniel: (Baccano!- Issac and Miria think you're G)

SO I FINALLY STARTED GLEE. (Took me long enough, right?) HOLY CRAP. This is a show that is tailor made for me, and I love it. Like, words cannot even begin to express the level of adoration I have for it. IT'S SO GOOD. I've only seen the first few episodes, but... it's so good. Kurt is definately my favorite thus far. Granted, I'm only four episodes in, but... sldfkjsdlkjfdsl I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

...I don't know if I'm hormonal or what, but the rest of this is just personal emo shit that I'm just gonna let out here. Please, feel free to ignore it in favor of spazzing over the utter amazingness that is Glee.

Emo Family Bullcrap )

Emo Friends Bullcrap )
Emo Relationships Bullcrap )
...Wow. That was one hell of an emo bitchingpost... but I do feel better after letting it all out.

Yeah. Writing isn't happening tonight either. It's just not. I'll have to write like all hell tomorrow though. Two days. 15k words. Think I can do it?  :D

And feel free to ignore everything else in this post for squeeing over Glee, too. Just don't spoil me for anything, plzkthx~

arthoniel: (Star Trek- Bondage Fun Time)

I could've written here about how my NaNoWriMo is pretty much a lost cause at this point, as I'm still only at 35k, I thoroughly dislike my story, and I have a life to deal with. But that's not going to happen.

I could've written here about how awesome my day in the City was today by virtue of it just being a day in the City and how happy my New York makes me. But that's not going to happen.

I could've written here about how ridiculously sweet my brother can be with just... everything. And I will get to that later. But that's not going to happen.

In fact, none of those things could even come close to happening right now. Because today, I was finally shown a clip of Darren Criss on Glee. And guys, I think I'm in love. I mean, he's just... he's so good and lsdkjfdsdlk. Seriously, watch this video and tell me you're not falling for him yourself. He's just. Omigod he's so awesome.

For those of you who don't recognize him, by the way, here's a hint as to who you may recognize him as instead: He was Harry in A Very Potter Musical.  :D

And now... hell, I don't even really watch Glee (yet) but... oh my god. He's just. He's just so good.

Right. I'll stop going off about him now. But. sldkjfsldk HE'S SO GOOD AND LSKJDFKSD. I LOVE HIM.

So today is/was Thanksgiving for us Amurikuns.

I am in literal pain over eating a bit too much. That being said, it has been pretty alright.

I got multiple "happy Thanksgiving"s today too via text message/Facebook. Like, actually towards me, not just a general status. And... I don't care if it was a mass text or whatever, but they all made me feel so ridiculously special like I don't even.


I would go through a long, corny list of what I'm thankful for, but I believe that we should all appreciate what we have all the time, not just on a few specific days, so... yeah. Also, because I'm already tired, and I still have to work on my NaNoWriMo.

NaNoWriMo approximate word count: a little over 30k. That means I wrote about 4,000 words last night when I couldn't sleep. I therefore went to sleep at around 4:30 in the morning, but. 4,000 WORDS. I think that says enough.

Tomorrow is Black Friday, and I am excited. Just sayin'.

...Yeah, even I don't know what I'm talking about anymore. I'm finding it difficult to not lapse into a turkey-induced coma... so I'll go now.

I love you all, by the way. Just so you know.
arthoniel: (Ouran- Realistic Kyouya)

...So I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One last night.

skdfjlsdkjflsdkj IT WAS SO GOOD.

I wanna see it again now.

I also saw Sunday in the Park with George yesterday.

lskdjflsdkjflsls STEPHEN SONDHEIM.  <3

I wanna see the version with Bernadette Peters now.

...I just broke 21k on my NaNoWriMo. I'm so screwed.

......I also have to do my homework, and I dun wanna.  DX

Where's my cloak when I need it?

Lastly, I got 12 hours of sleep last night. It was AWESOME. I've missed that. This weekend has just (for the most part) been a good one for sleep. Friday night/Saturday morning was not quite as much, but whatevs. (Yes, I did just use that word.)


"There's something sweet, and almost kind... but he was mean and he was cold and so refined!" (points to icon)

arthoniel: (Heroes- Gonna hafta choke a bitch)


^ No, I will not explain that one. Not yet, anyway.  >D 


Number of words I am behind on my NaNoWriMo: ~10,000
Amount of time I have to catch up on it: ~0
Percent chance that I will do it through sheer force of will because it's a challenge now: OVER 9,000%

Also... so Winter's Tale ended on Sunday. I honestly have no idea what to do with myself now. I spent so much time with it, I honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do. And I wasn't even one of the leads!

(Incidentally, if you're friends with me on Facebook, there are some pretty pictures of it posted from our photocall. There are pretty dresses and gorgeous sets and lighting and sldkfjdslkfj everything. You should check it out.  8D)

Seriously though, I'm really kind of... lost. I guess I can catch up on my NaNoWriMo? Either way though, that doesn't matter as much. What matters is that I had the most amazing time doing it. Everyone involved with it was just so extraordinary like I don't even have the words, and I love them all to pieces. And I'm sad that it's over. I don't want to not play Perdita again... she was such an interesting person to be. It's alright. There will be other shows. But this one... I'm so glad it was my first here. I can't imagine having done a better first production, ever.
arthoniel: (Default)

I need a more Shakespearian icon. In the meantime, I suppose Sebastian Michaelis will have to do~

HEY, YOU. YES, YOU. If you're anywhere even remotely nearby the Boston area this weekend (i.e., the entire Northeastern United States), then... THIS APPLIES TO YOU. (My apologies if you've already seen this on my Facebook or DeviantArt.)

Hey, everyone. Look at your weekend plans, now back to mine, now back to your weekend plans, now back to mine. Sadly, they aren't mine, but if you got off of Facebook tonight and tomorrow at 8, Sunday at 2, and went to go see The Winter's Tale instead, they could seem like mine.  Look down, look back up, where are you? You're in Bohemia with a man getting eaten by a bear. What's in your hand, back at me. I have it, it's a necklace given to another king's wife by a king. Look again, the necklace is now flowers. Anything is possible when you go to see The Winter's Tale and don't stay on Facebook. I'm on a boat.


...No, I'm not overly proud of this parody, why do you ask?

Fff, I'm 7,000 words behind on my NaNoWriMo- I was gonna novel today since I haven't done anything, but after a super busy week... it's been nice to just not do anything today.

arthoniel: (A:TLA- Imminent Death Alert)

Oh, hi there, Winter's Tale! What an awesome little show you are there~

Hmm? What's that? You go up in a week? Oh, hahahahaha, you're so funny, Winter's Tale! You're really, really funny!!

What? You weren't kidding? We really do have opening night in a week? Y-You know, it's not funny when you do that...

...We really are opening in a week. Right

......'Scuse me while I go have a mini freakout at my first show in college (I'm not counting the 24 hour musical, because I wasn't concious enough for that) opening in about a week.


Do any of you know the sitcom The Nanny? Because my roommates love it, and marathon it practically every night they're not out partying. And I hate it. It's just... not all that funny. It's not terrible, but... it's far from have-it-on-every-night funny. And it makes me want to stab a knife through our TV.

I'm still only a day ahead for NaNoWriMo, and my word count has to increase exponentially for this to work this year. And it will work this year. It just has to.
Although I was novelling earlier today, and I discovered a whole new layer to one of my characters that even I didn't know existed. It was kind of awesome. I mean, my main, Emily, is literally me. But now, I think Nick is my favorite. I'm just sayin'. I kind of love him. It's too bad he has to be a douche later.

So I introduced a friend of mine to Death Note. It was kind of beautiful. We were both in my room, hanging out on my bed, and I showed her my Light pillow. You know, the one where he looks like an Abercrombie & Fitch model... and is wearing as much as one. And she looks at him, and literally goes "oh wow." And I showed her the first episode, and she agrees with me in that she just loves looking at him. And I feel very accomplished and awesome. Just sayin'. (No, she has not seen the potatochip scene yet. Only the first episode. She hasn't even seen "L..." "Kira..." "I will hunt you down where ever you are hiding and I WILL eliminate you." "I am..." "I am..." "JUSTICE!" yet.  <-- *Did that entirely from memory, without even having to think about it. It's kind of sad. And awesome.*)

Lastly, I will leave you with a quote that someone awesome reminded me of that I felt deserved sharing with all of you:
"Little more!"
"Banananana- DAMMIT!"
My friends and I are incapable of saying "banana". <3 you, Nat~!  XD
arthoniel: (NaNoWriMo- Death Note)
First off, sorry for being so late, but happy belated birthday, [ profile] laenavesse!!! I hope it was awesome!!

Wow, I haven't been online in a while, have I? I'm massively behind on my flist... but I have a good excuse. A REALLY good excuse.


52,705 words=EPIC WIN. I is pleased. I is very pleased.

I also just submitted the first part of an audition for a voice acting role in a student film~ Here's hoping it goes well!!

Also- everyone who lives in the New York area!! Mokucon is this Saturday and VIC MIGNOGNIA IS GOING TO BE THERE. 8D You should be too.

Audacity is an amazing program, by the way. I'd just like to mention that. Now if only it would allow me to download LAME so I could convert my files into MP3 format...

I am officially a D.Gray-Man addict, by the way. Just sayin'. XD

Right. I'm going to start catching up on my flist now... but if there's anything major that happened to you in the last week, let me know about it!! It could be a few days before I catch up so... what did I miss, flist? (Hee, that rhymed... XD)
arthoniel: (NaNoWriMo- Death Note)
NaNoWriMo Day 1: ~4 pages, 1,908 words. Not bad for the first day.

...Of course, I also haven't gotten any of my homework done or anything... but shhh. That's what November's going to be like.

It's NaNoWriMo flist... so I need a good distraction. So... what's up? How's about this- comment on this post with something. Anything. Anything completely random. The first thing that pops into your head. And we'll have a conversation about it. Because we can.

...Just do it. For me? Please?
arthoniel: (NaNoWriMo- Death Note)
Fandom based NaNoWriMo icons!! Only 10 of them, and quickly put together, but... well, enjoy them~

Also, requests are welcome! Requests got me into Fruits Basket, which I ended up loving~ Except for the ending... Akito so doesn't deserve to have... him... but I'm just a jealous fangirl. So go ahead and request away, if you like my work!

Rules of Use:
-Credit/Comments are loved, but not necissary.
-No hotlinking, please.
-...Just don't claim them as your own, and really, you can do whatever you like with them~

AHAHA NANOWRIMO IS IN TWO DAYS. I'm going to go insane slowly. Well... insaner. I'm already pretty wierd.  XD Who else here is doing it, by the way? I have a WriMo account and everything... do you?

By the way... you asked for pics of my Halloween costume?

Costume pics under the cut, to save your flists! )

Oh and um... so I got my SAT scores back today. You know, after taking it a second time?

Well, I went down in math, which was actually what I was taking it again to improve on, but... well, how's about I just give you my scores (all are out of 800, unless I say otherwise).

First SAT
Writing: 630
Critical Reading: 750
Composite score out of 1600: 1410
Composite score out of 2400: 2040

This SAT
Writing: 660
Critical Reading: 800
Composite score out of 1600: 1440
Composite score out of 2400: 2100

With Score Choice:
Composite score out of 1600: 1460
Composite score out of 2400: 2120

Um. I... wow. Don't know what to say. Just... wow. It's actually really awesome- I managed to do better than before, without proving my parents right (they just said I should take it for the math section, and I went down in that)... I just... wow.
arthoniel: (The Daily Show- TDS: We put the anal)
sldfkjsdj THE YANKEES GAME. It's totally insane... BUT WE'RE GONNA WIN IT!!


...Sorry. That was necissary though.  XD

Beyond that... I'm actually outlining my NaNoWriMo novel this year. I'm going to know where I'm going with it and everything- it's pretty intense.  XD

My cough needs to go away. Like, now. I've had it for literally weeks and... urg, I don't approve. Oh well... it could be worse. It could be the full-blown bronchitis I had a few weeks ago...

Which, incidentally, I'm presenting on tomorrow. In my Diagnosing Disease class, we all had to pick an infectious disease and present on it... and I'm doing bronchitis. Yays for irony!!  XD

I'm... finally learning the Hare Hare Yukai. Or rather, I'm trying to. I kind of fail at dance- at memorizing steps and what order they go in and everything. But I'm getting there- I don't fail nearly as badly at it as I could be. ...Even if it is only the short version... shut up!! I just suck at dance... but this is something I feel like I should know.

Lastly, because this deserves repeating...

arthoniel: (Avatar- Wait- what?)
((ooc: You know who just got a plot for her NaNoWriMo novel today? I DID!! It finally came to me... it certainly took long enough, and it waited until practically the last minute to do it, but... well, isn't that just like me?  XD

But I could use your guys' help in getting the voice down for another one of my characters... help a girl out? It's basically the same thing as the last one, except with a different character this time.))

*A door slammed open out of nowhere, and Andrew ran in. Not even realizing that he's not where he's supposed to be.*

I am so sorry I'm late!! I know I promised I'd be on time this time, but there was this thing at the school...

arthoniel: (NaNoWriMo- Too Much Blood in my Caffine)
((ooc: So NaNoWriMo is in 10 days and... well, I have my setting together awesomely, but... I have no real plot. And I don't know my main characters that well either, so... I figured I can at least try to change one of those things.

Basically, would some of you/any of you/all of you be willing to RP any of your characters with me, as I play my main character? I want to get a better grasp on her voice, and I figure that the best way to do that is by... actually using her voice. You can use any muse that you want, or if you really want to be awesome, more than one? I just... need to figure out how she'll respond to different people.

By the way, this is a Dressing Room setting, but the room itself is just a regular lounge. I just wanted to make it a Dressing Room in case they want to go and... I dunno, play tennis or something. Oh, and this would be her intro.))

*With a carefully constructed "I don't give a shit" look on her face and her hands in her baggy sweatshirt pockets, Jessica walked into the room, looking more at the floor than the lockers and doorways around her and the staring classmates in the classroom she just left. Which makes one think she'd have seen the chair in her path before she tripped over it considering how it was sitting there on the floor, but she found herself trying not to look embarassed as she picked herself up from the ground after doing just that anyway.*

What the fuck... what idiot puts a chair right in the middle of the fucking hallway...

...the fuck? They better not try to bitch me out for not going to the office now.
arthoniel: (Death Note- Will Strip for Cake)
Dude, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is really good. To be honest, so far I still prefer Professor Layton and the Curious Village, but... this is really good too.  :D

In other videogame news, I really need a PS2 so I can play the Persona series. And I can't afford one... *sobs* Even though I've heard from everywhere that they are amazing, and J. Michael Tatum is in Persona 3 and... grah. Maybe I can steal BORROW one from a friend...

Also! NaNoWriMo is in 19 days, and I still have no plot. This is an issue. But for anyone else doing NaNoWriMo who has an account on the website... I have one too~

I should probably be working on my college essay... or my homework... but gah. What happened to my 3 day weekend?? Why must I have gym first period tomorrow...  DX

So. It's finally warm in my room after a few weeks of it being freezing in here. And do you know why that is? They turned on the radiator in my apartment building... summer really is over.

...Right. I'm going to stop whining, and do something productive. Either that or I'm just going to stop whining.
