I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I only knew him from lectures I'd seen online, but it's shaken me up.
I'm taken tonight off and catching up on reviews, because that... I think that will calm me down. I've been all antsy and anxious today and I just put it together; I thought because I only knew him online, I wouldn't be as affected. I am. Deeply.
I'm taken today, and possibly the next couple days off to focus on me.
I also may get a new Build-a-Bear. I've been hoping for Vision and have a clue that he might be coming out tomorrow - but I'm going to call tomorrow morning and if they have him, I'll get him. I've been feeling guilty, like should-I-shouldn't-I, but I need something new and comforting right and yes, I'm going to do this should he come out tomorrow. I'll let you know.
I'm holding off on the Hugos, mostly because a pile of new books will make me feel more anxious, like there's pressure to read them immediately. I may or may not do that depending on my anxiety level.
Was so successful I'm almost guaranteed a part time job. I never count on things until they've gone through, but my boss really wanted me to keep on going.
Which means I'll have a bit more money for the next year or so, which is really nice!
Is it worth buying a supporting membership to vote? Black Bolt is nominated, specifically the volume that my original art is coming from.
What do you think? I see that voting for finals opens April; I'm assuming it's not too late. (I know some people vote yearly so if you know, please let me know!)
Because I've been swearing as stress relief. I laughed so hard.
I am way too stressed and busy to get involved with another fandom, and yet between the toy and song, I'm watching Voltron. Well, doing homework while Voltron is on...
My school is not offering enough of the required classes for me to get into one which I need to graduate on time. No one is picking up the phone, so even though I've called three people, I can't get answers.
The registrar's office doesn't deal with graduate studies, so I'm basically screwed. FML.
Update before I posted: the professor, I later learned, was on sabbatical. Oops. I had already called me so she called me back while I was in the shower, discombobulating me. Still, she is wonderful, I heard dogs in the background, and I may bring her something like a nice pastry for being so nice to me at some point.
Someone from the curriculum schedule was in and I spoke to her, and she's going to see what she can do for me - so I'm feeling much calmer.
Not even stressing out about putting it on my dad's credit card, because my mom wanted to get it for my b-day.
I called him and told him I'd pay for it if he wanted. YESYESYES.
Loooves. I own an original art piece from BB.
This is all digital art, so it's an artists gilcee print, but it's also one of a kind. I tried a year or so ago, and didn't get a commission, but this is better. This is tied to the series.
Now to go look into how I'm going to frame this masterpiece.
One of a kind, very nice, artist's proof for Black Bolt. They go on sale at three today, am going to leave my internship early - a half hour early, because my boss is chill, usually leaves by then, and I'm over my sixty hour need for my class - to try and snag it.
For my birthday.
Did that excuse work?
My eye has literally started twitched; I can feel it fluttering and shuddering every now and then. Stress seems to be the culprit.
And meanwhile, pot is legal in my state, and my dad is waiting to vape/for edibles. I've never wanted to try pot, but, man, I'm thinking if my eye is literally twitching, maybe? I want someone to tell me, but it's like half a second, and I can't tell when it'll come on: just suddenly, oh, there goes the eye. I'm convinced people can see it, but I dunno?
I kinda need to tell y'all how much I love Dangerboat's supremely awkward crush on Arthur.
"Did you find Arthur? Did you find The Terror? Scratch that, did you find Arthur?"
Maybe I just don't care for any other Valiant characters as much as Bloodshot? I can get obsessive like that...
Anyway, another one with the same problem: didn't suck one star's worth, and I can't really remember anything so I can't image I thought it was a three star book.
Yeah, so my crush on Prince Robot IV is raging, especially with that last issue!
So, I needed a page change. I am crushing my review list.
Literally because I want to review Saga 49. Which should happen soonish if not tonight.
Again, from a month ago. I vaguely recall it wasn't one star's worth of suck - but not enough to be confident to give it three stars.
I vaguely recalled it didn't suck one star's worth when reading the description but I read this less than a month ago - on the ninth - and nothing stuck in my brain. I'm guessing it wasn't even worth three stars since I'm blanking on everything else.
She cannot speak to her husband, who has left her a widow. That being said, she is tormented by this fact. When a case drops into her lap that she is less than enthused by, she becomes enticed when it appears this might lead to her finding out where her husband's spirit is - and might actually lead to contact with him.
Still, it's exactly like a case that went sideways for a former friend, so it's not an ideal situation by any means.
I'm not super fond of Dr. Mirage as a character. She just never clicked with me, but this storyline made me more interested than I've been before.
