Being home after three months is weird, yo. I like being off-campus, but I forgot how stressful my house is. We'll see how the rest of the week goes. I did go shopping with a friend today (ugh shopping. But it was necessary.) which turned into four hours of coffee-talk. It was good to sit down and tell someone about all of the crazy things that have happened. And to actually get jeans & bras that fit.

Final grades went up, and I did technically pass calculus. I'm still not sure if I'm going to grade-replace and take it again next quarter, but that makes me feel a little better. And everything else was an A, so at least it didn't tank my GPA.

Tell me something good about your day. ♥

This weekend was the most social I've been in months, now that classes are over. Worked at my bakery internship most of the day Saturday, and as I was signing out, the owner asked if I'd be interested in staying on for the summer! YES PLEASE. I am loving this so much, and I feel so lucky to be working on something fun instead of sitting at a desk like my friends. I'd been a little self-conscious about being such an obvious newbie (and yeah, a little paranoid that they were annoyed that they had to babysit some high schooler) but being offered a job on my fourth day? I'm feeling very reassured. :D

Softball sleepover Saturday night included jumping on the trampoline in pouring rain at midnight. Do you need more proof of how amazing these girls are? Sports award ceremony Sunday afternoon, where I won the award for team leadership & commitment again, and then we all drove out to the middle of nowhere for a party at the coach's house. We ate unbelievably quantities of junk food and terrified the neighbors and absolutely destroyed her deck (although to be fair, she started the food fight).

I've been playing softball all four years of high school, but this has easily been the best by far. We started out without a pitcher or half of our infield and went on to host states and finish third. I've never been so happy at school as I have with these coaches or these girls - I've watched the other teams we played, whose coaches screamed at them and whose pitcher or catcher mocked other players' mistakes, and I feel so lucky. We have the best underclassmen, seriously. A couple of the freshmen girls actually wrote me letters/birthday cards saying how much they'll miss me next year, and I can hardly remember how miserable I was at this school freshman & sophomore years because this? Makes it worth it.

/Hallmark moment

[livejournal.com profile] jelliclekat wrote me birthday!fic which is the BEST THING OF MY LIFE: Long Past Time, Sam/hallucinations, spoilers for the finale. BEST. EVER. Angsty and fucked-up and hurts so so good. MMM WINCHESTERS. ♥

SO EXCITED FOR BIG BANG POSTING, OMG. Except I will be crazy-busy with prom and graduation and all of that for the first week, so I'll just have to play catch-up the second week. :D

Now that I have my G1 and can actually set songs as my ringtone, Carry On Wayward Son makes me glee every time someone calls. SPN theme song! Hope that everyone else had an amazing weekend too.

(@mishacollins is MAKING MY LIFE right now. I am fangirling his dorkiness so hard.)

JESUS CHRIST MISHA COLLINS. I... I think I died. Several times. In between dying, I also replayed that scene a dozen times. I mean, HOW. NOT THAT I'M COMPLAINING.
...NNNGH. *flail*

Fics that I NEED, as bunnied by my flist and/or my twisted mind:
-- Jared cockblocking Jensen & being a perfectly happy third wheel on his date with Danneel (who may or may not have a name, IDK) and then they spend the entire movie talking to each other and giggling and sharing popcorn until Danneel's just like WILL YOU TWO DO IT ALREADY and let me watch.
-- Castiel making good use of Misha's... TALENT. And then Dean walking in on him and being really turned on and really jealous. OR Castiel asking Dean about his new human body. Either works, I'm not too picky.
-- ANYTHING WITH BROCK OR COLIN. God, I want to squish Colin for being so adorable, and I want to bang Brock... well. Yeah. PLEASE.

Also, new Tractorbeam timestamp! I'm certain you've all read this already, but I need to rec it anyway. Nnngh, I cannot describe how much I adore this series. Geeky!Jensen and bemused!adoring!Jared and so many science jokes! LOVE.

You know what else is awesome? I finish classes by 12:20 on Thursdays, so I'm sitting in Caribou with a full coffee cup and free internet. Life is good.

EDIT I'm writing my psych notecards on sexuality and found this beautiful fact: "Men who have older brothers are also considerably more likely to be gay" (Blanchard, 2001; Bogaert, 2003). This is called the 'fraternal birth-order effect'.

BUNNY #721: I want Sam to read this in his textbook and suddenly become ~*concerned about his too-close relationship with Dean and begin obsessing until he realizes his TRUE FEELINGS. Ensue weecest.

I AM FINISHED WITH HIGH SCHOOL EXAMS. I won't have final exams (other than the official APs) at the end of the year, so that was IT. And it was an awesome way to end, because psych's such an easy class.

Afterwards, we all ran over to Starbucks and took up an entire corner and exchanged gifts. Rather loudly, but we weren't really being obnoxious? I hope. Anyway, my friends REALLY know me, because they got me new kitchenware (OMG it is beyond awesome I am in love) and dark chocolate covered espresso beans. ALL I NEED IN LIFE, I TELL YOU.

It's finally beginning to feel like Christmas, even if we do have nothing but torrential rain. Mostly because I'm freezing my ass off, but also because I put lights up last night and candles and everything's all pretty now. ♥

I've been working on my laptop in Caribou Coffee today, and about five minutes ago there was this flood of absolutely gorgeous men. No lie. I've sat here all day, and suddenly they are EVERYWHERE. Not complaining, however. At all.

They aren't together (Let me rephrase that: they didn't come together. Wait, let me rephrase that: ...whatever, let's just stay in the gutter, it's more fun down here.) but I'm just admiring the pretty. One's very stereotypical All-American and wearing very tight jeans, another looks like a better-looking Mohinder Suresh, there's a dad with a little boy...

Apparently, this is no longer a productive work environment for me.
marenzi: (Impala)
So, sitting in Caribou Coffee with my laptop? Is pretty much the best thing ever.

Except I spent all day yesterday writing essays & am going to end up spending all day today writing essays. OMG, self, taking four writing-intensive APs? BAD IDEA. I am such a dork, I have no life.

But it's okay, I have a laptop with free internet (Caribou > Starbucks any day) and coffee, I think I'll make it. :)


ETA: Seriously, flist. You are failing me. If I were actually FOCUSED, you would be spamming me right and left. As it is, I have no distractions.

In unrelated news, I could watch this mood theme icon FOREVER.
