How would you describe your ideal romantic partner in six words?

Letting me be my own person.

(Yes, I'm still firmly convinced I'll meet someone like that one day. Until then... nnnnnever again, rofl.)

Here I am, being useless again. :| So much homework to do this weekend...guh.

I haven't updated in a while. I quit my job at Caribou, but I can return if I need to. I'm still working my office day job. And I'm going to college. I'm taking five courses this semester. I think I'll whittle it down to four after this term. Heh.

I saw Swans on Wednesday, and they were. fucking. awesome. It was like having an hour-and-a-half long orgasm. They didn't really play any of their melodic stuff, though. Just noise. Lots and lots of noise. It's okay though. I loved it. I was first in line, and thus right up against the stage. My ears only just stopped ringing today. I could have done without the image of Gira's nutsack burned into my retinas when he decided to moon the audience, though. Cannot unsee it.

I liked the opening artist, Baby Dee, too. The music reminded me of Current 93, and I love me some neo-folk. I looked her up later on, and sure enough, she used to be one of their instrumentalists. And she's toured with Marc Almond, too. They did a song called "Jesus Beat Up My Mom" which was pretty epic, and a lovely rendition of "Idumea".

I'm kind of tired right now.

This video made not just my day, but my whole life pretty much:

Also, this kinda did too:

If you were given the chance, what one thing would you tell the entire world?

I absolve you of all your sins. Now get the fuck out.

(Yeah, I changed my answer.)

I have pretty bad insomnia, so I finally managed to crash at around 4:30ish this morning...only to be woken up a bit after 5:00am to some strange rumbling/thumping sounds and a sensation like I was being shaken a bit. I chalked it up to my little brother banging around in his room and the edges of a dream getting the better of me, as that happens sometimes when I wake up.

I just woke up a few minutes ago after falling asleep again, and through my normal routine of checking Facebook, I discover that I wasn't dreaming after all--it was a 3.6 magnitude (mild) earthquake!

They're reporting in the news articles that the center of the earthquake was in Gaithersburg or Rockville, but it was actually in my town (Germantown) and only around 3 miles from me.

That is so cool! We don't normally get earthquakes here, so it was the first time I'd ever been in one. Pretty wild!

Job interview tomorrow for one of my dream places. *_*

It's only a temporary position, but it's 2-3 months long, and a foot in the door. So, wish me luck!

So I caved...and pre-registered for Otakon this year. I also registered to volunteer, because I'm broke. I can't think of a single convention I've attended in the past several years that I didn't volunteer or staff at for that reason, lol.

And no, I'm not cosplaying. Heh. I think it will be good for me, though, to try and socialize.

I still need to find a place to stay, but if nothing else, maybe I'll meet someone there who will let me crash on their floor. :P

I am terrible at Mass Effect. I can't fight in the Mako worth shit. :[ I keep dying and I haven't even gotten the Asari yet, with whom I plan to have a ~zomg lesbian alien romance~. I don't even know if I'm on the right planet.

.........I just fell into the lava mid-battle.

I want to start a project, I'm just not sure what. I've been trying to get into something since I moved back to the DC area, but I can't get past the dreaming stages.

Something that's an outlet for my creativity.

I was thinking of starting some kinda writing project or doing something like Project 365--although I'd be limited to cellphone photos. But I don't know where to begin.

Maybe the notion will inspire me to get out more beyond the job search so that I can be...inspired?

Fellow artists/writers, what do you think?

Everyone, I don't care how cliche this is, but the world is at your fingertips. Don't let anything or anyone hold you back.

No one controls you but you.
