Ugh. Half-way through the last semester of college and I swear if I make it through without killing someone I might believe my friends when they call me the saint. That comment is usually in reference to one particular person, but... Yesterday was terrible in that there were only a handful of people I could stand being around and the rest of them apparently don't get what headphones in, knees up, and laptop on my lap means.

As much as I love my social life right now, I kinda realized the past couple of days I need to stop going places for hours at a time off-campus. It's why I'm scrambling a bit more than usual since I feel like I really have no time even though I do, I'm just not using it properly. I need some time where I'm doing nothing (like right now. Well. Not nothing - but standing still) and can just relax.

Actually that lets me write too, which also improves my mood - I'd really like to finish Balance (Merlin fic, 25,000 + words right now) sometime soon. I have waaaay too many stories started. Lots of fanfic - not quite as much original fic but that's because stories don't (usually) segue off of other stories for the original fiction. I think my problem with original fiction is the bad guys. I need to get in their heads more and then maybe those stories would take off a bit better.

I also really hope I can get a job pretty much right out of college. Even if its not immediately in my field - anything to start saving up money so we can get that apartment. It gets my friend out of her bad situation with her Mom, gets me out of the house and pretty much gets us all a bit more balanced. I think it's interesting that Senior year of college is opposite of senior year of high school in terms of effort (at least for me).

General babbling over.

Technically it's a week into the new year but I don't care. It hasn't been a terribly exciting week, though I did spend most of it up near my university. There for a New Year's party, we(me and one of my best friends who was kind enough to drive me) stayed a few days for various reasons. I didn't bring my computer which was just about the only downside since it's nice there with only certain people up there and certain other people not.

2009 was an interesting year. I hope with a lot of things cleared out from my life (the old rpgs that were causing me problems, a certain real life person) this will be a good year. Graduation is in May which I am trying to think of as little as possible. I have never really panicked over school before this last semester. I hope this next one will actually be better but... Senior project.

Role-playing both online and off is nice. I only have a bit online which is actually nice. There are two D&D games I'm in at college and one sporadic Serenity game so I'm having fun being a big ol' geek. As well as Secretary of JCAC - otherwise known as anime club.

As always when I have a moment to breathe, my fingers are itching to write. Merlin fanfiction is still the major one though other fandoms and original fic do their best to spin in their - there's a big, spanning original story in my mind that just keeps forming more and more where the "heroes" end up causing the bad guy into existing. <3 On accident, of course.

Trying to figure out what to leave behind for college will be fun. The fridge from my roommate is small, but is still a large square thing and we had trouble getting home last time. And while I usually manage to take more with me over the course of the year, I also tried to vary up my food purchases a tad bit so... less stuff, more food + fridge... though, being an empty fridge I can use it as a box at least.

Funnily, I find when I've had less than five hours of sleep I am more likely to actually organize things in my room. Possibly because I'm extra irritable and need to do something but the headache from lack of sleep doesn't let me do much that requires focus. Like playing a video game could work, until the first time I die and would then destroy the world in a a sulky fit. Other problem with lack of sleep if it's too bad - the voice in my head that says "Noooo, walk away" is not as good. I actually noted this a couple days back when I'd had too little sleep.

I am also really, really glad that I am not running those rps anymore. I almost decided to try running another because I missed it. A whole different set up, a very casual plot compared to usual, mostly people-run... and then I realized that no matter how player-run I tried to make it it wouldn't work out, and I missed it in some ways yes, but in other ways, no. I don't miss it enough to give me less time writing. Plus in a week and a few days it will be one less excuse for why to put homework off and I'm really planning on trying to not only not do my homework at the last minute, but do it early. Shocking concept, I know.

Frankly, this also gives me more time to write. Fanfiction writing mostly, but it's writing and I like it and most of my original fiction has dragons in it and I I could do with less of that. Except the one that doesn't which also happens to be the one I only have a few pieces on but already want to rework the first piece. Or possibly just writing some with the vampire and one of the main characters because they get along like fire and water and it amuses me.

I also have way too many Merlin pieces started and most of those are long, chaptered pieces. This is a terrible, terrible thing because when this happens it means I am hooked! I am going to be sad going back to college because I know there is someone who would have found Merlin amusing and now is graduated! That won't hit me as much until I am there and realize that certain people will never come to the tables again! I refuse to think about that too much though, because if I do I'll start panicking over Senior Project being in spring semester and I still have no ideas for it yet! I swear I've been trying to think of one since sophomore year!
