Rambling went on a bit long, cut to spare people wall of words )
Just a little rant because I haven't in awhile and it's good to write things down.

Job search is not going terribly well but is actually not doing as terrible as it could be. I've put my resume up in various places and am hopeful that even if I can't immediately get into my field (doubtful with my experience) both I and my friend will at least have better luck with retail type jobs when school starts as we can do hours they can't. Why I hope both of us well as we are determined to one day move in together. Actually if I had to choose one of us to get a job first I'd choose her - I'd love a job right now but being in her home is killing her emotionally.

I started roleplaying back in Pern 'verse again though I'm trying to be cautious despite my rp muse jumping at it. I even started a game as well as rping in one but made it easy on myself - open to all levels so when I get the urge to nitpick... I don't. I'm also not co-owning with the person I was before because we have the tendency to set each other off when it comes to things that bother us. Something that bothered us just a little will suddenly becoming something terrible and insulting! So yeah. She has a strong personality and is more... emotionally turbulent than I am. I love writing with her but I'm too likely to fold because I do love writing with her and don't want to upset her when it comes to owning an rp with her. And then every disagreement we have becomes high stress too.

To the universe, I would like to ask why the greatest ideas I have come to me when I'm ready to go to bed at an almost-proper time and instead end up pacing around my room and clicking away at the keyboard because I know the idea won't be there in the morning. This ranges from story ideas, roleplay ideas, to ideas about rl things, to just about anything! Always when I'm about to get in bed. Or in the shower, though that as well is usually half-asleep as I take showers at night.

And lastly, I never should have played that trial of WoW when I had no money. D: Do want to play more now plz.

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.
