I actually like Aubrey and would be totally interested in watching a spinoff about him. Yeah, whoops. Actually, screw that. Team Aubrey all the way!

Another three months have gone by, and I'll be honest. I've been working on some original fiction but have not been able to devote as much attention to it as I'd like. Photography has become more important for me, and work continues to shift in unexpected ways. Those two things have become my top priorities. They are the things with which I've had the easiest time asserting myself. Everything else stays in limbo.I have been dealing with a lot of unanswered questions in relationships, the media and even reading. I want t oread more these days but don't know where to start. We'll see what happens with all this.

I'm secretly on Twitter, just like this journal has been a secret for several years. I've been thinking about syncing my Twitter feed to this just to make things interesting. I don't know. I'm so goddamn spread out these days it stopped being funny in, oh, mid-2011 or something. I used to read/write fanfic, but I've kind of stopped so I could work on that hot mess of a script; two original novelettes; and a novella that I'm pretty sure will be my only writing project in 2013. I've taken some pictures but haven't updated the blog in a month. I've kinda sorta been promoted to the head trainer in my department and got a decent raise. I've been very busy and somewhat productive. It just means far less time, especially since I have trips planned for the next five months. :-O Actually, I take that back. If you average in the trips I've taken this month (as in out of the Twin Cities area), I'll have travelled pretty much from April to October. I think I'll lapse into a coma until Thanksgiving when this crap finally ends. Ugh.

And then there's Matt. Matt is not my husband. Matt is a mess I hope gets sorted out before the new year because this is getting really stupid.

Another act of mass violence, another 24 hours off Facebook. On the plus side, my race hasn't been canceled. It's still game on to run in Iowa next week!

(Did I mention I'm running in a mile road race? No? Well, I am, and strangely enough I'm even more pumped to run.)

You know what chaps my ass? Well, lots of things do. Let's be honest. However, I feel kind of weird because of the following things.

  • I'm not even 30 but already conducting training for my entire department.

  • I still wear a US size 2 and have for about the last 10 years

  • I've never put on more than five pounds in a timeframe of less than 6 months.

  • I'm an atheist.

  • I don't want kids.

  • I'm tiny but lift at least 50% of my body weight on a number of gym machines.

  • I've always liked fruits and veggies and don't have issues eating a vegetarian/vegan meal.

  • I actually like going to the gym.

  • I have always been a critical thinker.

Thanks to all of those, I feel like more of an outsider than I did as a teenager. Goddamn schizophrenic American society that can't decide what the fuck it wants. Is it bad to be beautiful, healthy and a size 2? Evidently it is. God fucking dammit.

Three things are dominating my mind right now.

- I'm still trying to wrap my head around Oscar Pistorious' arrest.
- I've been trying to figure out how to deal with a co-worker's infatuation with me. (It doesn't help that we have shit in common and that he has a nice ass, but still.)
- I'm really fucking behind on writing and photography projects, which sucks it.

If I can get my brain back online before March, I'll feel amazingly accomplished. I just don't have a lot of faith in that happening.

Could not resist. :-P

You Are Respect

You are consistent and steady. You preserve as much harmony in your life as possible.

Tomorrow is a fresh start. You are often willing to overlook the past.

You respect others - regardless of their beliefs of background. You are accepting.

You are an advocate for the people and causes you believe in. You speak up and speak out.

Your Brown Eyes Say You're Clever and Witty

You are seen as brilliant and irreverent. You speak your mind, and people love you for it.

You don't let other people see any insecurities you might have. You like to present a brave front.

You are sharp as a tack and very quick on your feet. You're the first to get or tell a joke.

You are also clear thinking in a crisis. You are an excellent problem solver.

You Are a Brown M&M

You are a very emotional person. You are sympathetic and compassionate to friends and strangers.

You can be accommodating and attentive, but you never let anyone walk all over you.

You're nice, but you're also shrewd. People are constantly underestimating you.

You love easily, and you become attached quickly. Sometimes you are unable to let go.

You Fall for the Guy or Girl Next Door Type

You think that people make love too complicated, and what you want in a partner happens to be pretty simple.

You're content with someone who's nice, attractive, honest, and normal. So how come that's so hard to find?

You are fairly traditional, and you value security in relationships more than most people. It's important for you to find someone loyal.

When you find the right person, you don't expect much from him or her. You're just happy to be together.

Men See You As: An Attainable Challenge

You know how to make your man crave more of you

But you also know when to show some interest back

You're good at keeping your guy guessing

And over time, you'll let him know how you really feel

You Are The Brain

You're the type of person who's always on, always churning.

You are alert and quick to react. You like to stay busy.

You are responsible but also demanding. You take up a lot of energy.

You are someone of deep mystery. There's a lot below the surface that's hard to figure out.

I think I know why I've been so invested in photography recently. Everyone says that thinking positively is a huge key to success. For me, thinking positively is like drinking vodka. I'm drunk for a bit but end up sick as a dog after the fact. This does not happen with other forms of alcohol. I'll get a little dry mouth with whiskey, but that's it. Only vodka gives me bad headaches and an upset stomach.

On that note, I'll leave you with a more pleasing image.

So to avoid some insanity this past weekend, I decided to do a little Bones watching. Since I'd already watched a fair amount of what was on Netflix, I decided to watch something more current. Let's just say that I'm now going to be missing the point of the show because I found a rare pair to ship. Awesome!

I swear this is not a ship manifesto. It is not.Collapse )

Yup. Even with the shooting that went down, I can't bring myself to care. I'm terrible, and I know it. Hence, I'm mostly lying low on the internet. I just came here to vent a little bit (and openly ask why this guy couldn't have done the world a favor and shot up the People magazine offices, since we know that piece of shit magazine is going to have this tragedy plastered all over the cover next week in their absurd social engineering mechanations).

So, yeah, why doesn't shoot up the People magazine offices? I'd love to see them do a cover story on that shit.

Thoughts while looking at a Twitter pic of Oscar Pistorius surrounded by members of the US Navy.

fangirls: You're hot/cute/lookin' good/etc.
perverts: *some random joke involing seamen*
me: Oscar's on Team Canon? Aw, hell no! Team Nikon's the only way to go!

Priorities: As a matter of fact, I do have them. :)

It's probably for the best that I can't embed this. On the other hand, it would save me some potentially embarassing explanations as to why I suddenly have a crapload of South African entries on my browser history.

I will say that sparkly blazer needs to DIAF.
