I've been writing this LJ post in my head since like Tuesday? All week, pretty much, but I can never find the time to just sit down and type up anything remotely coherent because wow, being an adult is harrrrrdddd. Work is kicking my ass, you guys. I get home at like 8 and have dinner and scroll through Tumblr a little and then pass out before 11. THIS IS MY LIFE. It's not awful or anything, but I'm just tired all the time, and as much as I miss participating in fandom and (more importantly) talking to people on here (I do I do, I really really really fucking do), I'm completely incapable of being really ~around~ in any capacity when it's not my day off.
Other than the insane hours (75-80 hours a week, fml), things are going great! My brain and my body have adjusted wonderfully to the daily grind, and my work environment is better than I ever imagined it could be. There's office politics (that thankfully don't really affect our little family of 8 in the lab) and some immature Mean Girls
-ish petty antics that kind of grate at me when they go too far far (sadly a common phenomenon in all workplaces, I've come to realize), but there's silliness and inside jokes and supportiveness and legitimate friendships
, too, so I'm happy!
I wasn't kidding about missing the fuck out of you guys, though. I've gotten so used to knowing everything about everyone, to getting to just shoot the shit with my favorite people for hours at a time, to geting to actually talk to my friends
and not to have to run out after popping in for ten minutes every morning. YES, I AM A TOTAL SAP, YOU PEOPLE NEED TO USE LJ MORE BECAUSE IT'S WAY EASIER FOR ME TO KEEP TRACK OF YOU GUYS OVER HERE. ;_______;
ALSO HEY TV STUFF in bulletpoints:
and I are in a fight right now. ALL OF THIS IS BECAUSE OF FEELINGS???? lol oh, Broyles. I just. Can we just stay in the atl!verse forever? More Lincoln and Charlie and alt!Liv AND NONE FOR PETER, BYE. (Also, fuck, the fate of two entire universes rests on Peter Bishop's dick. Of fucking course it does.) (REALLY, SHOW?)
2. Re: last week's Smallville
- I live a Superman Appreciation Life, haters stay pressed.
3. I've kind of stopped watching Bones
? OOPS. The last three eps are rotting in my hard drive because I just cannot find the motivation to get into any of that shit. I no longer have the inclination to sit through 41 minutes of unbearable bull just to make ~*feast from crumbs*~. Stop being so cowardly, show.
4. DAN AND BLAIR DAN AND BLAIR DAN AND BLAIRRRRR. This is Unexpected Friendship/Buildup To Something More done completely and utterly and fantastically right, and it's so delightful to watch Penn and Leighton hit it out of the park each and every week. idk if it'll last much longer, but I'm in this until the bitter end.
The Kurt and Blaine Show
has become the one fandom thing I look forward to the most every week (every day
, tbh, I LOVE MY FEED, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE), look at my life, look at my choices. /o\ /o\ /o\ It's been a disappointing piece of shit two episodes in a row, though, so I've relearned to temper my expectations. I will never again let myself forget that this show is only ever good by accident
, and it will always manage to pee on everything that I love. (That said: the newest spoilers, oh god, ALL THE THINGS. *whimper*)
HI FRIEND, COME TALK TO ME, TELL ME HOW YOU ARE, I REALLY DO WANT TO KNOW <3 <3 <3
