Well!

Despite my previously expressed reservations about it, I've somehow ended up learning to drive. It's not... the worst, but it does terrify me a little. God, curbs are just the most annoying thing, but I really like driving with a clutch! It makes me feel so much safer, even if braking is a pest. I feel so much more grown up driving a car that operates that way. And it's just a perfect lifestyle - get up at noon, learn to drive, eat out, roleplay until midnight.

Also today I nearly killed a motorcyclist. BUT HE'S PERFECTLY FINE, SO IT'S OKAY.

Thunderstorm

We had a bad thunderstorm last night. I mean really bad. Power tentative, visible bolts of lightning, potentially unsafe to the point that we should hide in the basement. And... I knew it was really bad. I knew that something terrifying was going on, the awareness pervading my entire being, but I -- felt no terror.

I think sometimes that I'm getting way too disengaged from everyday life. Deep into some of the best things that have ever happened to me... and some of the worst. But I don't want to just pull away...

Stupid driving...

I don't want to learn how to drive, to be honest. Driver's Ed has put the righteous fear of the road into me, thank you very much. It wouldn't suit my lifestyle. Too expensive to own a car. And furthermore I'm still not eligible to get a permit for another week, so honestly? I don't care. The Driver's Ed system is way too complicated, anyway! Too many stupid parts, NONE OF WHICH TEACH YOU TO DRIVE.

And yes, dad, it is illegal to get me behind the wheel without a permit. STOP ASKING.

I feel myself turning into one of those people who doesn't make schoolwork a priority, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's just... everything works out in the end, so why put in the effort? I know I mustn't tell myself these things, but I say them anyway.

...should I post more often?

I feel like there are't as many things for me to say in this context as there once were. Right now I'm failing a class seriously for the first time, but that's about it. Comment box fic has become more rewarding for me than stuff with my name attached, because I'm praised beyond belief for nothing but adhering to expectations. I'm not even logged in with remember me anymore, that distinction is conferred onto roleplay accounts. Would anyone here on the flist be interested in seeing rants about Japanese? I know a lot of you aren't. Maybe I just need to volunteer to spork again...

Today I am fifteen!

...don't feel that different, actually.

JOIN carriero. That's enough.

Do I Even Need To Say This?

If a single byte of information about me ends up on facebook, I'm going to have to punch a fish.

PUNCH A FISH!


ATTENTION PUBLIC

THOSE UNDER THIRTY OR WITH NO SENSE OF HUMOR ARE PERMITTED TO IGNORE THIS MESSAGE STOP GO SEE SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD WITH WHATEVER FRIENDS FROM WHOM YOU CAN GET CONFIRMATION IN THE NEXT TWENTY MINUTES STOP MAKE SURE TO BUY POPCORN BUT EVALUATE ITS SIZE FIRST STOP THERE IS SERIOUSLY SOMETHING WRONG WITH ANY COUNTRY THAT PASSES OFF THE POPCORN I BOUGHT TO SEE THAT MOVIE AS A MEDIUM FULL STOP

In other news, I'm actually still alive, rather surprisingly, and have to finish a Community fanfic pretty soon, so yeah. Also have been attempting to master the Fukkireta loop, but it always wins...

Bechdel wa?

So my boyfriend and I have gotten in an argument about the Bechdel test. I think it's completely valid. He does not. Our main disagreement concerns Death Note (which, technically, passes with some conversations between Mrs. Yagami, Misa, and Sayu) and Lord of the Rings (which does not). He claims that despite this failure to pass the Bechdel test, the work still isn't sexist at all. I am skeptical. Thoughts?

He also claims that the Bechdel test has absolutely nothing to do with how a work views woman because it's just a numbers game, and THAT just makes me go eyetwitch eyetwitch eyetwitch. Honestly...

Writer's Block: Fear

What is your greatest fear? Do you think you'll ever overcome it?

Dogs. My boyfriend has one, so I am getting over it veeeery slowly.
