Because I don't feel much like thinking

current song: Happy Nation ~ Ace of Base



Anyway, lovely newness that is the story I'm writing for NaNoWriMo. That I actually got to hole myself up in my room and work on today. Squee!

I'm not . . . entirely sure what the basis of the story is yet, as weird (and utterly unpromising) as that sounds. I actually have much more of this, an entire scene that takes place in 1904, but I don't think I like it much anymore, and may change it (and yes, I know that's not what you're supposed to do for nano, however, I be a revision-whore.) I have a vague outline of a summary, but we'll see where it actually goes.

Actually, it's . . . kinda fun and thrilling. ^_^

Oh, btw, who has the HARDEST time writing the thoughts and dialogue of a homophobe? MEEEEE! ^_^; Actually, I kinda want some different takes on why people believe homosexuality wrong.

Am going through the mental list of friends to try to see which ones I remember are anti-gay rights to ask about this later. I feel there should be obvious names jumping to mind, but in true Sarah fashion, the fact that I want to know makes it harder to recall. If you're on my flist and disagree with homosexuality, can I get some viewpoints as to why, so as to not have it sound so cliche and a little more fair and realistic?

PS: I wish GoMusic would stop being so damned slow. I want my Ace of Base files NOW. And I only have $.37 left there. :(

ETA: I've never really looked into the background of the Ace of Base song "Happy Nation" . . . am I supposed to be as strongly reminded of Karl Marx as I am right now?

One of those rare public entries.

Okay, not that the little AIM start up page doesn't piss me off regularly in its attempt to be chic, but I sorta want to stab it more than ever right now, with it's "Single Men to Stay Away From"

Mr. Workaholic--aka 'you never pay attention to meeeeee'Collapse )

Mr. Womanizer--aka 'we have no idea what the word -womanizer- means'Collapse )

Mr. Wannabe--aka 'let us define rational ambitions FOR you'Collapse )

Mr. User and Abuser--aka 'be wary if you are asked to spend money'Collapse )

Mr. Know-It-All--aka 'Sarah nearly agrees with this if it weren't ironic that it came from the same list as some of this other stuff'Collapse )

Mr. Narcissist--aka 'what to avoid when you are being superficial'Collapse )

Mr. Broke--aka 'Sarah sees red'Collapse )

Mr. Sensitive--aka 'the WOMAN is supposed to be the weak one'Collapse )

Mr. Predictable--aka 'consistancy and habit are horrible in a relationship'Collapse )

The verdict? If you're going to set your standards according to this weird feminazi, passive-aggressive movement women are pushing, prepare for dissapointment. There are things you can't fight against that are human instincts, and doing so makes one very unhappy and leads to more problems in a relationship than if you were to be a bit more bending in your actions.

current song: Blood Makes Noise ~ Suzanne Vega

I got bored of insomnia and wanted to do something. Thus, Weiss Kruez iconses. One of each Weiss member and one of each Schwartz member.

I like Aya's the best. Schuldig's doesn't really fit, but . . . the German flag gradient HAD to be used, and there wasn't any way to make 'mastermind' show up against those colours. Schwartz gets to be special, on a similar note, because the colours coincide with their countries of origin. Amusing note to make: Crawford's is actually a French flag gradient going the wrong way, because there obviously is no American flag gradient. Farf's is just a blue and white gradient and Nagi's, similar, is just a red and white.

Sleep is for uncool people anyway. :\

Okay, am working on my new story for creative writing, and being that I'm rereading my Poe book, I wanted to go for a scarier fiction this time. I got some EXCELLENT critiques from my classmates, but I must have more. Pleeeeeeeease???? It's not the entirety of the story, but it's what I have thus far for the assignment, and I think I want to make this my main story.

*Edit: Changed the name back to Rowan once again (Yes, Aussie, it IS your fault that I cannot write about a blonde haired, blue eyed girl without automatically thinking of the name 'Rowan'!) and added much, much more. The story is so very complex by now; I've told Annie about the majority of what's going to happen. I am thrilled about this thing!

current song: Save the Last Dance for Me~ The Drifters

Names shall be changed later, of course. Am thinking about changing my character's name to either Clio (the muse of History) or . . . Adra! (Sarabs, Marie, Lina, Bex, Aussie, Ash, Ary, and Sara understand that one) Think I'm going to cave and go with Adra. I have half a mind to make Alex's name Mason until he gives me a name he'd rather have, because he and I are always arguing (with much less death wishes against each other, of course.) Unfortunately, gender details makes 'Venya' not work for Marie. :(

Edit: Eheh . . . it helps if I put the story blurbs UP, doesn't it???? ^_^
Edit 2: Names changed

Two Flagler college students were killed in a car accident, on their way to see a concert. Given the size and nature of this school, there is a noticeable effect on the student body. Because one thing about Flagler college is you really feel close knit--even if you don't know everybody personally, you generally know the faces, as there are a mere 1500 students attending the college.

Thoughts and prayers go out to anybody that was affected by this, however directly or indirectly.

That means one of two things, and being that it isn't a political/ideology rant, it must be some form of graphic. This time it comes to you in form of a Resident Evil screencap caption, because I was bored, and am vaguely (re: VERY) amused by the stereotypical "out of the frying pan, into the fire" decisions that always go on in horror games/movies/books.

Wonderful idea, EinsteinCollapse )

current song: Engel ~ Rammstein

This is a public post, much more civil than the last.

I must make a few things clear:

I do NOT feel I was unjustified for my actions earlier, however after talking to glitterygashes, I do know I was wrong. Marissa is actually a very nice, very smart, and very interesting girl, and I was mistaken about her intent. I do feel badly about upsetting her, as the problem came down to two very different ideas of ettiquette on a very dangerous subject. For the record: I do not react well when I find out that something I said--particularly something that is being evaluated and even mocked at times--is put somewhere else without my knowledge. otakuraven can vouch for me, be it something I've said or something somebody else said that I happen to know, it's a very efficient way to take my temper from mild to explosive. If you want to post a view of mine somewhere, please just ask me, because I have no qualms with people seeing my viewpoints and arguing them, but I do want to know it's happening, instead of feeling like people are talking about me behind my back and dealing with the fear of the spreading hatred for me starting because of something I said but couldn't defend. Slightly illogical, yes, but it does happen.

The people who actually commented on the argument in such a manner, however, I do not feel any different towards. These people were more than happy to go on as they did, without bothering to ask for any way to address me personally and give me a chance to defend myself. Likewise, there were people who I felt were very considerate and although I don't agree with them on their points about what I said, I do, however, have respect for them, as they did for me.

So this is my public setting, non-screened comment feminism post. Eventually I'll actually get the whole of the debate between Marissa and me from the comments on a friend's journal and post them, but right now I'm far too tired and have a horrid sinus infection, thus doing so seems to require more energy than I am capable of. In the meantime, go ahead and post comments about the post in feminist.

Explanation on one thing that seemed to be far too controversial than is comfortable to me:

The parking for pregnant women--as a friend of mine pointed out, exercise is good for pregnant women. And also, if you are having any complications with your pregnancy that does not allow you to walk the length of a parking lot, then you a) should not be out at the Publix, as you will be required to walk once inside anyway, and b) should probably not be driving, ergo no need for the parking space.

Furthermore, as I explained to Marissa, yes, I do feel as though the so-called "oppression" is the fault of modern-day women, and no, I was not brainwashed by the patriarchal society. I am not dismissing the fact that life for women is unfair; however there is nothing stopping women from changing that by making sacrifices and proving themselves to men. As I also explained, this does require succumbing to the unfair system and going extra miles and doing more work for the same recognition as a man who has done less, however I think it would be a much more permanent issue than the current activism route, which often centers around demanding fairness without making those sacrifices and without doing that extra work.

Is it unfair that a woman has to do more than her male counterpart for the same prize? No. Is it real, nevertheless? Yes. Can it be changed if women are willing to do more than their fair share at first? Absolutely. I think feminism should crack down on women who wish to just change things by arguing with those in charge about social norms these days.

Begin the Flagler series comic shorts that I work on in my time off. This edition is "Grades". Just yours truly in this one, because nobody will be offended if I fuck my character up. Annie, could you please point this out to the boys, since they were witness to its beginnings at dinner that one day?

These will be put on public settings, so that anybody in the group that may not have a livejournal account can see them.

Next edition: "Dining Hall Mind Control"
