TL;DR:

- play to much of THIS
- keep reading THIS
- listen to THIS
- work is like THIS...though I didn't make that comic.

Internship with Western Mountains Alliance tracking relevant bills for five counties and then setting up public forums for them alone with aiding their organic and sustainable farming initiatives. AND SKIING. Just bought new XC skis and they are seeing action this winter.

I went to see Maroon 5 the other night and that was pretty awesome.

In less exciting news, I have learned that switching over to mostly liquid food is hell on your stomach. I look forward to getting over this hump so that I can go back to feeling like my stomach does not have an ocean in it. But I am down about twenty two pounds and a pants size, so there's that. I'm about half-way through to the target weight (140) that lets me not get my knees injected. Stupid knees.

School starts in two weeks and that means the early fall LACing trip/HvZ/research scholarship application clusterfuck of doom. But it'll be good and I'll have fun. ^_^

I am registered up for Pax 2011 and I got Ethan to come with, which should be interesting. Here's hoping Valve is pushing DotA 2, but they'll likely be all about Portal 2. Understandable. I'm also debating on whether or not I can cosplay, since it comes down to money. I'd like to go as an NCR First Recon trooper (or NCR Veteran Ranger), but, damn, that's a lot of pieces. I'd probably have an easier time making a Vault suit. But even that brings the question of which Vault? 101 for solidarity? 13 because it's the first? And my roommate's going, but she's doing that separately.

And the RvB guys will be there. :D :D :D :D :D :D

Now to go read for International Politics and American Political Thought.

It's the end of the semester. Shit's gettin' serious. I'm writing my last minor paper for SOC245 and then I'll start working on the final. The break down for the next week is:

SOC245: Paper/presentation on how we are marketed sexuality in politics (i.e., told what is proper and American). Will deal with how bills and legal measures seek to define sexuality by controlling things such as birth control, abortion, sex education and age of consent as well as laws that restrict sexual practices that are completely safe between consenting adults. Will look at support/reaction to this as well as people who have made entire political careers out of this. (But don't quote me on it...that'll probably change as I go along.) Take home final.

POS205: Campaign analysis and retrospective strategy. Take home final.

POS151: Regular final. On Thursday of finals week. *headdesk*

FRE102: Must write a biography and recite the entire thing. Fun fun fun. Take home/regular final.

The weekend, provided I get some work done, will be excellent. I'm going to hit Sunday River on Saturday for the first time of the season and then it's the Anything But Clothes, Anything But Cups, Black Light and Bubbles Party. And, hopefully, Ethan will be around so I can see him before I go home.

I ought to be home for two weeks before coming back up to Maine to spend the rest of my break snowboarding/skiing around Maine/New Hampshire/Vermont.

I suppose writing a paper about sexuality in the US should be more titillating and less boring. So while I get to write about strippers and such FOR GREAT JUSTICE, it's still a term paper (even if it's a lulzy term paper) and that's still boring.

Damn you, sexuality class, for taking the fun out of talking about strippers and booze.

Hello LJ, it's been a year. So, where to begin? I am still going to school at UMF, PoliSci major with an English minor and apprenticeship. I am running Live Action Combat, Humans vs. Zombies and layout the school paper as well as writing when I can. The actual position is referred as "associate editor." I have a full course load, I am campaigning for a local politician and I'm working fixing computers (and I am halfway decent at it too, surprise surprise). I built my own computer this summer and use it for gaming (and I'm totally into New Vegas right now). If you're on Steam, my account is "roedhel" with the tag "Lysistrata."

Hm...that's my life. I'm getting up tomorrow at six to be a political group breakfast and then it's off to work and then class. OH! And, Friday, I'm going to the Rally to Restore Sanity in D.C., which is pretty bitching. Then, on Sunday, another rally for the Democratic candidate for governor in Lewiston -- Bill Clinton's supposed to be there, good times. This is also my, er, "romantic getaway" with Ethan. Lulz. We're gonna tear up D.C. with Ethan's mate Curtis a little. Feel free to meet me there.

Free time is pretty sparse (sort of...it's all relative, I guess). I have some right now, which is quite excellent considering I spent the better part of my weekend campaigning and the like. But, it'll be worth it if we see some of ours elected. Then, after this weekend, it's off to New England Webcomics Weekend -- where I'll get to meet Jeph Jacques and Danielle Corsetto and and and...*squee*. Then the weekend after that, I'm going to see Bang Camaro with Casey and Dave for Casey's birthday. She's going to be 21 and doesn't want to do anything crazy. Fair enough, and she's never been to a rock concert, so it's going to be a blast preparing her for lots of amps in an enclosed space. :D

There's about a foot and a half of snow on the ground right now. I have legitimately not been outside in over two days. I stay up until four in the morning and wake up at one in the afternoon. It's back to Maine on the 27th so I can go have winter classes, so I'm having my only "break" time in a state of severe hyperbole. It's wonderful. That said, all my grades went up and MY GPA WENT DOWN. What the fuck UMF, what the fuck.

I've got chemistry over winter break, then I'm still doing four classes for the spring (two lit classes, French and some intense Photoshippin' with possibly coding mixed in) as well as staying on the Flyer staff and, hopefully, doing all their layout and photography. I will officially be "busy." Weeeeird. But there's nice weekend with Ethan at Sunday River next semester, so, that's okay.

Other than that, I'm waiting to get back to Maine. Sure, I have class, but at least I'll be around people that aren't my family. I'm paying Ethan $120 to stay in his room for the month, which means I'm staying with three other roommates, who are all male: Tedford, Chris and Drew. (The first couple times I mentioned this to my father, I daresay I spotted a twitch.) Doug will be around, and so will Dave, Christina and a couple other people. I'll probably get in touch with Dustin and see him again for I miss the boy. Of course, there will be snowboarding. I plan to spend quality time throwing myself down mountains, as well as some other trips, mayhaps. I know we don't have a lot of money, but going down to Augusta or Auburn or, hell, even North Conway again, to have some lulz and maybe get some clothes that are on sale is fun. It'd also help if what happened with Michaela hadn't happened, but that's a whole different story of social drama and lameness.

I got a pirate shirt while we were in North Conway. I want to show you, but I accidentally left it at Ethan's house in the massive speedfest that was moving out of my dorm room and moving some of my stuff to the apartment and taking some of it home and strapping a Christmas tree to the top of my car and driving home like that.

Yeah, you heard right. I went with Ethan, an hour and a half before I was slated to hit the highway last Thursday, hacked down a tree, strapped it to the top of my little SUV and drove home like that. For the record, it was a relatively harrowing journey as it was extremely windy until half way through Massachusetts, causing the tree to rock the entire car. Our top speed was about 60 MPH, causing us to be about forty five minutes behind. Poor Casey, I made her stay awake 'cos I was exhausted. I'm sorry I didn't take pictures of this now, but there wasn't time since we were trying to stay on schedule.

Time for Oreos.

There was a point today where I just felt like leaving in the middle of my interviews because I just...wanted to be done with them. But I sat there. I was polite. I got it done. Then I walked the fifteen minutes back to campus, wrote my paper for journalism, went to class, attempted to throw food in my mouth, tabled for HvZ, managed to see Ethan for ten minutes, took Ken to Walmart and then trudged up to my room and collapsed on the futon couch. Today felt like the day that never ended...and it's only eleven o'clock.

Man. At least this weekend something good'll be going on. It looks more like I'll be headed to Sunday River to take advantage of the fact that, yes, they are open and conditions are favoring them making more snow, which means opening more trails. I could be snowboarding in October. After all, I do have my season pass paid up, I just need to renew it. That, or I'm going to go to Orono to see Dustin and, hopefully, Nicholas. They got back together (yay!). And, sometime this weekend, I need to finish straightening out rules and working on my part of the talk mods are giving to players at the final bit of registration.

In case you hadn't heard, I'm moderating and helping run this round of Humans vs. Zombies, aka my life is about to be hella busy. I don't think I'll survive terribly long, seeing as I have to be out and about moderating people and making sure they don't try to kill each other for reals, but it should still be a good time. Halloween's also coming fast and I haven't started any of my costume stuff. D: D: D: D: I've got some here, but...I want to have something good for the night of too. Need to get on that...

Ooooooh man, so I spent seven hours at the ER yesterday waiting to see a doctor about a UTI. Now I have these fun pills that make my tears orange. No lie. I'll see if I can make myself cry this week so I can take pictures. It's slightly hilarious. I'm also sorta behind on my work at the moment, but I got out of class a whole hell of a lot earlier than I thought I would, so I'm gonna go nab some lunch and then go back to writing songs. Yeah, I legit have to write songs for class.

In other news, everyone cross their fingers that the editors at the Farmington Flyer liked my photos. If they do, the paper will run a spread. They asked for the photos to do the spread in addition to my normal photo assignment, so I took extra-intense-special-time when I went out to take pictures and got some real winners. Wish my camera was better, though, as some of the best shots are ultimately not as good as they could be due to the quality of photos my camera takes. There's a used Nikon for sale out in Orono, but I absolutely do not have the five hundred bucks for it. :/ But, yeah, the Flyer is going to be running my photos all this semester. WIN!

My mum's coming up this weekend, and so's my brother. Hm. And then, the weekend after that, it's King Richard's Faire with the LACers! ^_^ I'm really excited for that, though I'm not crashing at the hotel with everyone else, I'm going home to RI. I should get home around ten or so with Michaela and Kyle in tow since we sorta can't get vans for the trip and are using private cars. I should get some awesome pictures from that.

OKAY. SO. COLLEGE.

I came up to Maine a two days early and stayed with Ethan. This is probably about the time I started watching him an' his roommates play Fallout 3 (I now have Fallout on my computer and have recently crossed the eleven hour mark in about four-ish days, god damn it guys, that was not nice infecting me with that stuff). Casey came up Monday night and we moved in nice and early Tuesday mornin'. We set up faaaast and floored our entire section of dorm, which is nearly all freshmen, with the door-dec-a-thon and the Wall of Distraction. I'll take a picture of the Wall of Distraction when I figure out what's wrong with my memory card. But the WoD is working well. Mwahaha. Casey's a damn good roommate. We we along well and we have bunk beds. It's fun. I have my own cave!

I like my classes, for the post part. I'm not keen on having to pester people for interviews and I'm annoyed that the stories I could be writing that would be moderately interesting I can't write due to conflict of interest. This means, apparently, that I know too many people involved in too many things and could not be unbiased in my writing. Ain't nothing I can do about it, though. Music's going to kick me in the ass if I don't constantly go over the sight reading stuff. :/

On the social front, I have a social life! This is pretty spiffy and tends to mean that I haven't been kicking around myself nearly as much as I did last year. Last night alone I ate dinner with a ton of people, played some XBox with Ken, went over to Dave's for Beatles Rock Band (which is EPIC, by the way), hung out with Kati and then Ethan popped over to sleep here (I learned that my bed is very, very little). LACing is still on Monday nights and there's been a lot of people going the past two weeks. I'm working the table at the activies fair next Tuesday for the club, so that ought to be loads of fun. I get to go recruit people, woo! I'm still trying to get a job and still not having a lot of luck. Blarg.

Aaaand now I'm going to try to hunt down the guy I'm supposed to be interviewing. Again.

From Monday to Thursday last week I babysat and made nearly three hundred bucks, which is good because from the 11th-13th, I'll be up in Farmington and I'll need food. Gas. Those things. This weekend, I mowed things, hung out with Casey and worked on the GP. I've actually had things to do, so, well, hopefully when I get back from Farmington, I don't just sink back into nothing to do-ness. That would just be depressing.

Having the Kia has helped immensely with finding things to do. I can actually drive to someone's house or meet them somewhere. It's completely brilliant. Hence, I am driving to Maine. Partly to off-load the PVC I got for the LACing club and a lot-ly to see Ethan. The drive up is looking fairly good. Burning up some CDs and made money for gas. I was hoping the admissions office would want to interview me while I was up...but I haven't heard from them. They need paper pushers, according to the UMF work initiative listings...and I thought I'd get ahead. but, apparently, no dice. Grrrrr.

Yep. That's all that's going on right now. I found out I have four books for next semester. This makes me immeasurably happy.

The waiting is getting to be right annoying. Waiting for someone, anyone, to call saying I've got a job (but, on the other hand, my dad finally admitted that my chances of getting a job when RI has a 15% unemployment rate are slim at best...it was an odd moment because when I got back from AB he was irate I'd spent so much on it with no job to come home to). Waiting to hear back from his car dealer, who's at the auction today (fingers crossed, everyone, for a silver, black or dark green Escape). Waiting to get said car so I can list myself for horse and childcare. Waiting to visit Maine in July (I get to see Rocky and Dustin and Nicholas and Kristin and Ethan, win win, hoorah social happenings in Farmington). Waiting for school to get back in because being home just isn't as fun as it used to be. D:

On the other hand, if I look at this in terms of media consumption, I ought to be queen of cultural references when I get back to school. In the past month, I've watched all of Pushing Daisies, Futurama (including the movies and Futurama fans rejoice!, rewatched the first two series of Doctor Who, mourn the passing of Reaper, can't wait for the new season of True Blood and, best of all, the Red vs Blue summer cycle: Recreation. Oh, I need to get out house a little bit more. XD

I'm cleanin' my room to go home later this week. No matter how much I sweep, I never seem to run out of dirt to clean up. Where the hell is it all coming from? Liz, who's been gone for a month or so, and Dustin "officially" checked out on Friday. I guess a lot of people are leaving mid-week. Hm. Not the end of the world, I'll survive until next Friday. Michaela's going to be here too, so definitely not that bad. (We like her. A lot.)

Last week of classes, headed off by the Leadership Banquet, where there was a raffle and I was one number off from a two hundred dollar camera with a four gig memory card. And I was two off on a giant ass TV that would have been BITCHIN' for split screen. T'was a good night followed by a whole lot of homework I did not give a toss about, don't you know. And I even got dressed up, gasp!Collapse )

Last Friday I was really sober in the middle of a lot of drunk people and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I wound up playing a lot of Rock Band (one song with a singer so soused he screeched and couldn't stand straight), talking a lot to someone who I didn't really expect the attention from at all and he even volunteered to walk me back when the person I was supposed to be walking back with got distracted. I also got back at four in the morning and passed out for the better part of the day. Phew. But definitely worth it and fun. :D

I've got pick-up LAC tomorrow night, which ought to be interesting because a) it's outside, b) the terrain's completely unlevel, c) night, as in, dark, and d) not a lot of people are going to show up, and those nights tend to get a little more competitive. Moo ha ha. Michaela thrashed me rather soundly yesterday, though, but I was pretty wiped, so maybe I'll do better tomorrow. I hope so. I'm looking forward to doing this again next year for the entire year. *points* Lost a lot of weight doing it now because I've had to keep running around outside of LAC to keep up with the folks in LAC. Besides, my coordination's gone up in general, which is a god send, because the first couple of weeks, I was ripping myself apart tripping over myself.

Which reminds me, I was in the top ten for HvZ survivors. HA. I don't think I'll fare so well next semester, but it was nice to rock at the first game ever. I was just really, really sneaky. That was my big trick.

I'm doing my darnedest to stay awake and finish my homework right now before my escort mission with Michaela at eleven. *yawn* I survived the first twenty four hours of Humans vs. Zombies, which is more than you could say for the a lot of the players. The original zombie was a beast and managed to pull down a lot of people, who, in turn, pulled down a lot more. Yesterday's highlights include three straight hours of escorts, a recon and rescue mission with Abe (we were going to rescue part of our team, but they had a lot of people with them who scattered once they were moved into zombie-free territory and Abe and I were moving ahead to give them cover and an all clear, idiots, but our guys got out okay) and a midnight escort run that got us surrounded. We lost Jay, but he was the only casualty out of ten plus people.

So I feel kinda hungover and exhausted. The plan is to sleep on the way to the BEN FOLDS CONCERT TONIGHT! Oh baby, I'll be awake for that, it's just a matter of whether or not I can "survive" to when Dustin is going to pick me up at Roberts. I don't think he really gets how dire the survival situation is. We need to starve the zombies. >.>

Me: ...shut up
Random Person: OMG R U A GIRL?!!!!!11!
Me: Yes. Shut up.
Random Person: OMG WICH 1 RU?! LOL
Me: ...this is going to suck.

Five minutes later, one of our teammates booted this arse, but right in the next round we had someone doing the same thing to Dustin, only pestering him about being gay (we couldn't kick him out, damn) and then we got stuck with a teamkiller who just kept gunning for us, and he was in the next three rounds. But, other than that, I was doing well, considering it's been a month and a half. :D Team rockets for the win, but otherwise I would up favoring Brute shot and a shotgun.

Hanging out with Dustin's, going back to the school this afternoon and going to do some English homework. What a blah Saturday night, though it might involve some t-shirt painting. I've got two shirt set up for Doctor Who-ing (one with the a Dalek and the other with the Doctor and/or TARDIS, I'm still undecided) and a white one that might get red cross hairs and "FPS: frag the weak, hurdle the dead" on it.

Coming up is the one for music history, which looks like it's going to be focused on nerd rock (I'm breaking it out with a vengence, and if anyone's got suggestions, I want to hear them).

I hate this English class. With a passion. I'm taking journalism next semester. Perhaps that will not be as *headdesk* as traditional English. I'm also taking a music class, which is real music, as in music theory and having to learn to read sheet music and maybe this time it will stick.

Cutting my track next week. Will post that when I'm done so everyone can have a good laugh. All right. Homework time.

Okay...I'm sick. I'm not please with this one bit. My throat's sore, I keep sneezing, coughing and my ears hurt. WTF. But in bigger, better news, we has a whole lot of snow. Two feet of it...with one minor snow storm expected today or tomorrow and another nor'easter to hit this weekend to dump at least another two feet on our heads. This is how it's lookin' in Farmington.Collapse )

Besides the epic amounts of snow, it looks like Liz and Dustin are going to be near-moving out to go live with their respective boyfriends. Damn...gonna miss havin' them around.

Arg, I'm off the sleeping again. It's crazy because then I'm wide awake at three in the morning staring at my ceiling muttering curses under my breath. It's really starting to get to me since I've stopped napping in the middle of the day.

IN OTHER TOTALLY AWESOME NEWS, MY RED VS BLUE DVDS CAME IN! Some pictures of fandom crazy. Woo.Collapse )

There's nothing much else up right now. Liz wasn't really around this week, so it's been me in my room, wandering back and forth between Dustin's room. Going to the Lawn Chair Pirates show at eight with Callie and Ester, listening to some new music that James recc'd, whether he realizes it or not, and it's completely cool. It's different songs all mashed up together, and it all comes off as one song in the end. Aaah, so cool, and it's used some songs that I really wasn't ready for them to use, like "Hold Your Head Up" and "ABC". :D

I had my first Buffy class today and, among other awesome things, we'll be reading FAN FICTION as part of the class. Whoa baby. Mwahaha.

It's good to be back at school. I missed my room and everyone and nearly everything. Nicholas is coming over tonight. :3 Whee.

But, on the other hand, I can't go snowboarding or do anything that'll endanger my head for two weeks or so 'cos of the concussion from Saturday. RAWR. This is a rather erratic entry. So. Sorry!

What fictional high school—from tv, film, or a book—would you most like to attend? Or would you rather never go near high school again, fictional or otherwise?


Ha ha ha, this was just too good to pass up right now.

Sunnydale High!

Vampires, demons, ghosts, invisible girls, witches, Slayers, oh my! You know. If I could survive all those things for four years. It'd be pretty freakin' fun, though, to have all the choas going on, ver entertaining. :D
