  • Wooden bar makes climbing onto my roommate's slightly lower bed in order to more easily get off my own raised bed not as practical as I'd hoped.
  • Toilet clogged Wednesday night after making strange whistling/grinding sounds all week every time we flushed. Asked roommate who works at the Physical Plant to get someone to look at toilet for us. Apparently someone stopped by while I was in class yesterday. The toilet no longer makes noise, plus we now have a new toilet seat and showerhead which has really amazing water pressure. Slightly perplexed by the added bonuses, but definitely not complaining.
  • It's been hot all week, so I don't know why it only just now occurred to me to turn my fans on high.
  • Apparently the guys in the apartment across the alley want us to "wave and be more friendly and neighborly". Okay then.
  • I think I've done more homework in the past week then I did the entire time I studied abroad/the entire second semester of my freshman year. And it will only get worse. Christmas can't come soon enough. I already want to die.
  • Having a roommate with the same morning schedule sucks far more than I could have imagined.
  • I think VLC media player makes my computer run slowly, which sucks since I use it all the time.
  • I hate how I have to do laundry more often in the summer because I sweat more.
  • Every time I come back from class, I always start going to my old apartment. Conditioning is crazy!
  • I have this overwhelming urge to write Albus Severus/Scorpius fanfic, but absolutely no ideas for a plot, so ... I guess I won't be doing that.
  • Why is it that I can happily read fifty tabs of fanfic, but fifty pages in a novel for class and I want to kill myself?
  • On that note, I would fucking ACE a class on fanfic! Someone seriously needs to create that course. It could be like a media/lit/writing course, where you would read selected fics and discuss their merit and what makes it good or bad, and talk about AUs and why people write them and what we can learn from them and stuff, and then you'd connect it to the culture at large and the connections people make in fics, and then at the end instead of a term paper you'd just write your own fanfic and then your classmates would evaluate it based on what you learned in class. Okay, seriously, wouldn't that be awesome? You know you'd take that course!
  • Actually, someone just needs to start like 'Fandom University' or something, because then maybe school wouldn't suck so much for people like me. I mean, I'd actually have stuff to say in class if we were watching Doctor Who, you know? Intelligent, academic things to say too, because I actually have thoughts like that about it. Whereas I don't fucking care about post-colonial literature so I'm not fucking looking to see if water is a fucking motif because I'm just trying to finish the fucking book so I can read the other fucking book for my other fucking lit class so I can write the fucking analysis about fucking connections I'm making the fuck up because I don't actually fucking see any because I don't actually fucking care! See, school is clearly bad for my blood pressure. Fandom never makes me this profane (with the exception of The-Miniseries-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named which totally doesn't count because that was out of PASSION not PASSIONATE INDIFFERENCE).
  • Why the hell am I a Lit major again?
  • I went for a walk this morning before class. That was cool. I wonder if I actually have the willpower to do it every M/W/F. I hope so, because I liked it.
  • I sort of wonder if I will ever get over my newfound passionate love of Kirk/Bones. I mean, I'm sure I will, but it's really hard to imagine at this point.
  • Also, it's really weird, because I really feel like I'm a lot like Jim in AOS (I'm totally Spock in TOS, there is not question), but then I came back to school, and I realized that my roommate and I are totally AOS!Jim and Bones (except that we're not in love): she's outwardly cocky and happy-go-lucky and rash, but I'm one of the only people who she lets see the more serious, fucked up side of her, and people think she's a slut but I know better; and I'm cynical and tough and practical and sarcastic, and she's always getting me to get outside my comfort zone and do things I normally wouldn't do and have fun, and I'm always stopping her from doing things that are really stupid. It's actually kind of crazy how accurate that analogy is. I still think there's a huge part of me that's like AOS!Jim, though.
  • I'm really excited about the new seasons of Merlin and The Sarah Jane Adventures. I mean, I have no idea when I'll actually have time to watch them, but I will make time, damn it! Merlin/Arthur = OTP! And one story in SJA features Ten[nant]!
  • I actually miss my family a lot more than I thought I would. I mean, I knew I would, but I just didn't expect coming back to school do be so damn hard.

So, I think Jack and Ianto are quite possibly television’s most adorable couple … but ultimately, I want Jack to end up with the Doctor. In terms of getting screwed over for falling in love with the Doctor, Rose and Martha have nothing on Jack. He sacrificed everything for the Doctor, and in return got abandoned and left to spend over 130 years trying to find him again. And then the Doctor tried to run out on him again. Because the Doctor is an idiot. Jack is obviously perfect for him. Re-watching Series 1 of Doctor Who just confirmed that the Doctor and Jack were just so good for each other. Seriously, they work so well together (“Let’s do it.”); and now that Jack is immortal, he can literally travel with the Doctor forever, and the Doctor can stop angsting about how he always has to go on alone. I would like nothing more than for the Doctor to stop being an idiot and realize this. Anyway, with that in mind, I made a mix for Jack’s story arc of meeting the Doctor, getting abandoned, joining Torchwood, waiting for the Doctor, and finally finding him again.

For my birthday, my uncle gave me a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble, and this afternoon I pre-ordered the next three Torchwood books!!!  That will totally be the best package I get at school!  I mean, in one of them Ianto becomes a woman!  It doesn't get much better than that!

Also, I got paid on Friday, and I have to say, it is really nice to have an income for the first time in nearly two-and-a-half years.

Philosophy final went okay this morning, although my concision once again bit me in the butt since I only wrote four paragraphs per question and it was recommended that we write six to seven.  But dude, I answered the questions fully, which is what matters.  It was really annoying, though, because I thought I was going to get a table to myself but then this kid came at the last minute and sat next to me, and then the table shook when he was writing.  Which, like, I'm sure that was annoying for him when I was writing, but he chose to sit at an occupied table, you know?  It was also really awkward because one time in lecture this same kid sat next to me and kept talking to me until I was finally like, "Dude, shut up, I'm trying to hear what the lecturer is saying so I can figure out what's going on!"  Except I said it a little nicer.  But he was really annoying.  Anyway, today when I finished my answers and got up to hand them in, he said something to me, but I couldn't understand what it was because he was whispering/mumbling, so I was like, "Sorry?" and he may or may not have said, "Never mind."  Whatever.  I gave him an awkward smile and left.  Thinking about it later, I think he may have been wishing me luck on the exam, in which case, um, it's a little late now, buddy, since I've already finished it.  But it was nice of him, I guess...

After the exam I went to the mall and bought some more Torchwood books (yay!) since I'm going mad with boredom here.  Now I should glance over my Sociology notes before settling in with the amazing-ness that is all things Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones.

So my friend Liz is coming to visit me in Scotland this weekend. She's staying until Wednesday. She was supposed to come tonight, but her flight was cancelled, so she's coming tomorrow night instead. Is it bad that I'm happy? Probably.

Also, on Monday I went to the mall and there was a 3 for 2 sale on Torchwood books, so I bought all three from Series 2. I just finished the last one, 'Twilight Streets'. It was the best one, so I'm glad I read it last. It was full of Jack/Ianto goodness! I think at some parts I totally forgot how to breathe! *sigh* I miss Torchwood. Like, a lot. I miss Jack/Ianto. Can Ianto please, please be in the Doctor Who finale? Everyone else is!

Also, yesterday I was reading 'Something in the Water', which is another Torchwood book, and in it all these people got a weird alien disease that started out as a sore throat, and this morning I woke up with a sore throat, and now I'm paranoid. I took some airborne, though, and it seems to be going away. Maybe it was just because I left my window open all night. But if it is an alien disease, can Jack and Ianto come save me? And bring the Doctor and Donna with them? Because even if they didn't have a cure, it would still make my entire life.

Best. Ship icon. Ever. Y/Y?

I think this is also a good time for me to express my newfound love of the BBC show Extras by Ricky Gervais. It's so hilarious, and the stars that come on are so beautifully self-effacing. I'm torn between Sir Ian McKellan and Orlando Bloom as my favourite guests. They're both hilarious! Watch the clip below and tell me Sir Ian isn't brilliant!

How do I act so well? )

Also, this is such a gorgeous Torchwood video, I couldn't not post it!

The end is where we start from... )
