Alot has happened since I last updated. Aside from Spain winning the WC. I had surgery done on my teeth two days ago. It was wisdom tooth extraction, so now I have four gaping holes in my mouth and it's tough because I cant eat the food I used to. and I am stuck eating some seriously gross shit. Nothing is worse than packaged dried mashed potatoes. That's what I get for being lazy I guess (but lord i've been tired these past few days) and I spend alot of time hungry since eating is difficult. Also I am a wuss when it comes to pain. Surprisingly this affliction has made me more productive so I've been able to comment a bit more in some of the communities I enjoy frequenting.
I also finally finished my game Mass Effct II (and Jade Empire which I stopped right before the end before finishing for a long time) So that's good. I am starting on Red Dead Redemption now. One of my fantasies I confess has been to explore the old west like a cowboy so this game is appealing to me because of that, but also since I only rented it I dont have to feel bad if I dont finish the game lol. Which I probably won't since school reconvenes soon.
It's funny I have alot of interests that I am passionate about: games, feminism, films, tv, stories, music etc but I dont bother to write about most of it. I feel like this journal should be a better reflection of who I am and what I care about but at the same time I am often lazy about writing 1 because I dont know who reads what and if it's just for myself I dont need to update that much. But also because I worry I wont articulate myself well and often give up before trying to write anything too complex. It's also easier to just comment in other journals or communities about a topic of interest rather than post about it in my lj, since usually when I post I want some kind of discussion or feedback which is not always guaranteed in my own journal (understandably). Also my mind is so disorganized that I suppose it is fitting that my journal would be so as well. In terms of content.

Anyway, it's 5 am and I woke up a few hours ago to take my pain meds and penicillin but I feel sleep coming on again so I will go back to sleep now. Ideally I will update this journal again soon with something substance...or a meme. Probably the latter. I miss posting memes!

For shits and giggles, I leave you all with this:

This made me laugh so hard the first time I saw it. If only more of those regency romance novels went down this track, I'd probably enjoy them alot more. heh.

I am posting this entry now (instead of tomorrow like I planned originally) solely to post this link: http://wellknowwhenwegetthere.blogspot.com/2009/08/sincerely-john-hughes.html
I saw it on my flist earlier today and clicked it and I just fucking cried my eyes out. This is beautiful and whether you care about john hughes or his films at all or even know who he is. I still think you should read this. Everyone should. What a lovely kind hearted man he was. and It really showed in his movies which were beneath the 80's style dramatics were really earnest and sweet. RIP John Hughes, your creativity and heart will forever be missed.

I finally saw North & South today. It was a beautiful drama and I thank everyone who recommended it to me because I thoroughly enjoyed it! I've seen hell and it's white. Pure white. )
The thing I love MOST about North & South is as much as it is a love story and it is a very beautiful love story it's also becomes that much more, because of it's very rich setting, supporting cast and conflicts that are not entirely centered around the couple or romance and feel very real for the time period.

I also started watching Skins sometime yesterday and I'm on episode four right now in the first season and this is already shaping up to me one of my most favorite shows ever and possibly the best teen centric show I've ever seen. It helps that Skins has a realness to it that other teen shows lack even while being really surreal or crazy sometimes. I cant wait to watch more and at this rate I think I may even watch S3 despite it having an all new cast.

I'll wrap up this hasty entry by saying I changed my layout the other day. and also my profile. So check those out, if you like. http://sisterjune.livejournal.com/profile

[Poll #1385735]

So I've decided to change my lj name. I already bought the rename token. Now all I need is to decide which name to choose. Sadly I cant choose, pretty much cause all the choices i've come up with were either taken or total shit. So what i'm left with are the acceptable ones. I'll leave this poll up for the weekend and then I'm going to change my name. I may not necessarily choose the name with the most votes but it has a higher chance of getting chosen. basically I need some help deciding and this was the best way i could think of. Most if not all the names carry some significance to me. However I dont have time to explain them all but it's not of huge importance really...

ps. I finally listened to the K8 album yesterday. first impressions were good. I will maybe do a review on my second listen.
pps. sorry for not commenting much lately flist. after this week most of my work will be finished so maybe I can finally go back to regularly commenting and posting.

ETA: I looked into it more closely and it seems redshoes is not available for use afterall. sucks :( the best ones were really queenofhearts and redshoes but both were taken. in fact every imaginable variation of queenofhearts was taken -_-. same for red shoes
