whatawaytoburn: ([Newsflesh]  Rise up while you can)
1) Not awake yet. I went sleep and I can't get it because A) took my Prozac already and that fucks up my sleep now that I am on more and B) I just can't sleep. I've been awake for an hour.

2) I've been rubbish at commenting, both here and on other people's journals. I'm sorry for that. As you guys can guess, it's been a rough ride this last month or so, but I am working on it.

3) I'm kind of sucking at [community profile] letthesummerin even though I have three months to do what I want and part of the reason it's three months long is so that there is not nearly as much pressure on me to produce something every day. I just....Yeah. I don't know.

4) I am trying to get active in [community profile] beyondtherift again. I think I am going to manage it this time which is exciting.

5) I need to get back to my other blog at some point. And drawing. And other things, I just...brain. My brain has sucked so very hard that it's difficult to do anything.

6) Still reading Blackout by Mira Grant with Morgan. We're having a hard time getting through it because we flail so hard. Still though, we're getting through it and it's been really fun to read along with someone/be read to by another person rather than an audiobook.

7) Speaking of Morgan, I will get them next week. *spins* This is not a bad thing, as I kind of need them right now. I...yeah. Having them will be good and seeing them before I take off to New York will be even better.

8) Have an appointment with my therapist for 1:30 on Tuesday and an appointment with the psychiatrist on Thursday at an unknown time. I think I am going to tell the latter that the pills are making me batshit i8nsane and that I am crashing harder and more frequently than I have in a while.

9) Acquired some games last night. I really want to play Amnesia but it doesn't like Anthea. I enjoy Limbo though and Vincent is trying to get me to play Bastion really, really hard. It's kind of amusing. I will probably cave in at some point today to try and entertain myself for a few hours and give myself something to do.

10) Caffeine is love.
whatawaytoburn: ([Words] Won't sleep for days)
- My brain is tired and I can only marginally think.
- I'm really out of it writing-wise. It's irritating as fuck but I kneed to get back with it.
- Drawing is coming along well. I think I need to get back to writing though.
- My case worker wants me to go to social rehab in an effort to get me ready to move out. I am utterly terrified.
- We are talking about moving out though which is exciting.
- I want to just curl up in a ball and sleep and hide and not come out again.
- Have not been reading much lately, I think that's probably not helping the writing. I am going to try and do some of that tonight/tomorrow. Probably tomorrow, as I really just want to curl up and not move right now.
- Things, there are things I have in my head, depression things, wordy things, planny thing sna djust...i can't do anything with it because I am so tired and so out of it. Nrrg.

Right, I should just curl up and sleep. That is what I should do.
whatawaytoburn: ([People] Cat)
- It is too hot for legs.
- I am having tea anyway.
- My hair will ideally be blue by the end of the day
- Wrote a blog entry about how much I love A Writer's Prayer, a Neil Gaiman poem.
- I may or may not spend my writing energy on writing Cabin Pressure promptfic
- i bought my first thing at Lush today. Hopefully it will help me get rid of some of the dark splotches on my skin.
- I get Morgan on Friday.
- I got a new sketchbook since my old one had almost no pages left in it.
- My mother also had mechanical pencils hiding, so that was exciting.
- I've acquired graphic novels
- It has been decided that I am in the market for a new bag. Somethimg smaller than Sam, though hopefully still a messenger bag.
- I think that's it.
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing]  Don't ask)
Things I need to do:
- Do tarot readings
- Go through edits.
- Clean my room.
- Start planning for people's gifts.
- Determine what I am doing about Rory.
- Start the 100 things that are not the prompts.
- Make my writing schedule.
- Call the psych doctor

Things to keep doing:
- RP tags
- Read, either print or audio. Try and make it a book I've not read before.
- Keep up 100 prompts
- Keep writing, either for Rainbow or chipping away at Faeverse or something

I think I have managed to fall into a schedule with my sleep which is exciting. I just need to keep it up. I'm coming to the point where I curl up in bed again and sleep for a couple of hours before my mother gets home but I think I am going to try and push through it today in favor of getting some more stuff done.

I really, really need to get something to eat, as I am kind o f starving, but nrrg. All we have is breakfast food and I'm not really in the mood for it. /first world problems.

I may say screw it and curl up and sleep anyway. Sleep would not be bad and I only have one tag left. I can get that done, scuffle off to bed, get up, shower and then get ready to leave the house tonight (oh joy!).

Though, it is for sushi, so it could be worse. At least tasties are involved. That is exciting.
whatawaytoburn: ([Words] Won't sleep for days)
Things I need to do this weekend:
- Do RP tags
- Finish the tarot/Do a three card draw day.
- Go through edits.
- Write the Cabin Pressure Exchange fic.
- Look through zombie fest prompts.
- Clean my room.
- Start planning for people's gifts.
- Determine what I am doing about Rory.
- Work on Bargains
- Start writing for 100 Things

Which is not bad considering the list I started out with on Monday. I wish I had gotten more done but well, I always wish I had gotten more done. Plus I added two things on there that hadn't been on the previous list, so you know.

I should look into caffeine or a nap. I've been up for nearly 12 hours after only getting about five hours of real sleep, so caffeine and/or naps ought to happen, though I had two caffeine pills already today, so maybe it should be sleep.

I just...want to stay up and plot for Bargains. And possi8bly start writing for prompts. And listen to music. And not have to bloody sleep.
whatawaytoburn: bella_sol at LJ (pic#3128103)
Things I need to do today/this week:
- Go through my DW tags and reorganize them.
- Do RP tags
- Finish the tarot readings I owe and then consider doing a free Three Card Draw day to thank people for being awesome.
- Go through the edits that have been given to me and make changes.
- Write the Cabin Pressure Exchange fic.
- Write for [community profile] rainbowfic
- Look through the Zombie fest prompts and see if there's anything I want to write.
- Review for [community profile] rainbowfic
- Start planning for people's gifts for being awesome and helping Morgan out.
- Poke my damn ukulele. I've been doing this on and off lately but I'm not really putting in the effort I need to.
- Clean my room. (started, need to finish)
- Make a list of my TBR, at least the next five books in my TBR.
- Make a list of my current reads.

- Determine what I am doing about Rory.
- Figure out if I am doing that 100 Things challenge that's going around. I am sorely tempted but I don't know what I would talk about. If anyone has suggestions, let me know.

This is all assuming my mental health does not go down the drain as it is prone to doing. I would like to accomplish something this week. I just...don't know if it will happen. *laughs* I am doing well so far which is exciting, I just don't know if it will hold out. I guess we'll see.

On the other hand, I have been getting sleep lately, which is a big help in keeping me sane. Now assuming I don't get triggered badly, have a random spike of suck or have something like Molly (who is doing better, in case anyone's wondering), I should be fine.
whatawaytoburn: ([Words] Boringness)
Useful things that got done today:
- Got a script fo9r my meds.
- Registered on the Medicare website
- Started the process for food stamps
- Got the phone number for Medicare
- Started reading the handbook
- Got Elizabeth to start looking for housing.

Not so useful things that I've done:
- Watched Resident Evil
- Finished listening to one of my podcasts

Things that still need to get done or will get done tomorrow:
- Writing for NaNo
- Talking to my therapist about moving out
- Looking into the volunteering
- Possibly calling the Lighthouse.

My day has been a lazy one that can be summed up in lists. Mroar.
whatawaytoburn: ([DW] Eleven)
My life in list form.

- Necro was awesome. I mean really, really awesome. There were panels, there were chatting, there was music! THere was just a lot of really, really awesome stuff.
- I am sick which is not thrilling.
- I am going to see a free movie tonight.
- I may or may not have acquired a job
- I have been really bad about therapy this week
- I am still listening to too many podcasts.
- I need food
- My brain wants to be dysfunctional but I am trying my damnedest to not let it win.

I meant to do a real post, I really did but then Firefox crashed and it didn't come back up, so I did this instead. Maybe there will be real posts in the future but we shall see.
whatawaytoburn: (Default)
At the con I managed to collect a number of links and names to look up later. Since Alex and I need to exchange this information, I thought I would just type everything up and make a post. There will be a general con report coming later and an author pimp post (though I've not read any of them yet, they will just be names of people who sound awesome), though I'm not sure if those will come today or tomorrow. We shall see how my brain feels for the rest of the day.

I should also state that this list may be added to as I go through the flyers that I collected. What you see before you is simply the list of things I took down on note cards and nothing more. If it looks like there are going to be a lot of additions, the flyers may just get their own post.

The Chromatics
Coyote Run (No link that I found)
Boogie Knights
Julie Brown
Firebird Arts And Music

Cemetery Dance
Dragon Moon Press
Create Space
Smash Words
[Writing critique]
Gabrielle Edits

The Witches Brew
Enchanted Earth
Meet Up
All World Acres
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing] Evil vs the narration)
So, for my own reference, a list of projects that will be worked on in November to get me 50K:

- The Book Of Thursdays [Still needs plotting but I obviously know the setup already.]
- Take Back The City [Plotted, some research though I am poking at some logistics and I still have no idea what POV this is going to be written in. If all goes well, this is going to be the main focus of NaNo]
- The new personifications [There's no big tale to tell with this lot, if I do anything, it's going to be a collection of shorts that I might try to have a theme for. The point is, they will be a go to when my brain does not want to work on anything else.]
- the OT6. [This will be the second 'I have no idea what I'm doing with anything else and I need a break from braining' group. If I can't do the personification, I will do them. Again, I am possibly considering making the attempt to come up with a string of short stories that I feel would be good together but I do not know.]
- Radioverse [I've been in the mood to poke ever since I realized how I want to tell this story, so I might try and get some writing in on that. It might not work since my brain can be temperamental with this verse but we'll see.]
- The Spices [I have the rewrites started and I'm going to try and go over what I've got done before November so I can keep plugging away.]

Other things that may get poked at:
- The blogs. [Over the past few months I have had two separate blog ideas that I would not mid starting up. If I find that my brain is not in the mood for fiction, I am going to try and do those.]
- Getting something knit. [I've started on a scarf because they are easy but I need to continue with it. I've started over several times and I'm hoping that i can y'know, stop doing that.]
- Jewelry. [I am going to go take a class sometime in the next few weeks so i can get the basics. Then I am going to start playing around and see what I can come up with on my own.]
whatawaytoburn: ([Drinks] A/S Smile)
First, today is coming out day. I have no one to come out to but in case somehow you've missed it:

- I'm pansexual
- I'm polyamorous
- I'm gender fluid
- I'm kinky

These are all fun facts about your average Nina that everyone should be aware of.

Next, things about the general state:

- I had had tasty milkshakes and tea instead of going to therapy.
- I got my ear pierced (two holes in my right ear to go with the holes I had on my left)
- I went to Borders
- I went to the mall
- These things were not done in that order
- I now have lovely, tasty tea to try.
- I am going to Necro this year and will be booking tickets and various things before the end of the night.
- My mother is not home and it's a lovely thing
- I have to get up tomorrow and go to therapy.
- I turn twenty tomorrow
- I have a psychiatrist appointment on Wednesday.
- I have to find food for dinner because Sofu went to my aunt's.
- I have been listening to lots and lots of podcasts.
- I have come up with a new verse.
- I have admitted to a crush.
- I have downloaded excessive amounts of music.
- I have no shoes on
- I am a pleased, pleased creature.

Tomorrow might not be as good as today but I have no complaints about how this day has been and I really hope that I can go to sleep feeling this way.
whatawaytoburn: ([Words] Make it though the year)
Okay, I know I'm really behind on commenting and things but there was another five day hospital stay and I didn't have any internet.

I'm all right, I'm home now and nothing happened but I needed to go back. It was not fun but I'm hopefully better now that they've changed my meds and I should be in somewhat decent working order.

Things Nina will accomplish today:
- Catching up on comments. I have a fair few to get to but I don't mind because everyone is just lovely and having all those comments to come back to was very nice indeed.
- Catch up on LJ/DW, though if you have anything that you really think I ought to see, linking me in the comments would be awesome.
- Write. I've been having the burning urge to write all week and at the hospital they didn't give you notebooks, only unlined paper that was three hole punched and strung together.
- Start knitting again. I remember how to do it, I think,s o I might try and get that started while Sofu isn't home. If not, i"m waiting for her and then starting so I can flail about how I'm doing this wrong.
- Paint my nails. They need new varnish desperately.
- Make my various doctor appointments.
- Clean my room. It needs to be picked up and I am looking forward to laying down in my bed tonight and passing right the fuck out.

And i think that is all I need to do today, some of these things will be easier than others but I shall try my best to get everything done!
whatawaytoburn: (DW: Eleven)
Things to do today:
- Rearrange the office [done]
- Go to Walmart for bins [ ]
- Talk to Yaya about beads and gewlerythings [started]
- Go through old clothes for useful fabric [started]
- Archive all the fics that have been written on the prompt post [ ]
- Respond to more prompts [started]
- Go post/tag into the Rift [ ]

My brain keeps misbehaving and not letting me do organizational things but it seems to be working pretty well when it comes to writing, so I'm doing a lot of that as of that. I also have been poking craft ideas with a stick but those are only vaguely interesting.

I think I need to go to the mall with Sofu later and I'm not thrilled by it but I might look for something that makes me feel good, I don't know.

I, at the very least, need to get a new set of heasphones because the ones I have are dying. I also think that I'm going to be more inclined to watch the shows I have tormented when I can do them with headphones.

Which reminds me, I should go torrent Sherlock. I'm going to get that started in a second.

I'm still taking music and movie/TV recs by the way, probably even more than before. I'll need good noise and sounds while I do crafts and get back in touch with sanity
whatawaytoburn: (DW: Eight smiles)
So, this week has not been the greatest so far. It's not been the worst but between having gotten kicked out of our mall for trying to do the questions, some financial issues and knowing that my mother will be, well, my other over it, I'm sort of waiting for the week to be over.

Anyway, I wasn't planning to do this meme but the name of it made me smile and the subject line in the entry sort of sealed the deal.

Be Excellent to Each Other - My Thread

And because I think it's probably not a bad thing to do, a list of things that, despite this week, make me happy.
- Alex.
- Coffee
- Sanctuary
- My desk
- Sex books
- The bookmark I found in one of the sex books
- Having food in the house
- Having the ability to write
- Music from my childhood
- Knowing that we do not have to move next month
whatawaytoburn: (Default)
Things what are pleasing:
- my girlfriend. (Who probably makes me pathetically happy but fuck if I care. She is a brilliant being, she is.)
- the fact that I have managed to type this much without anything happening to my text.
- The fact that my brain is no more physically screwed up than it has ever been
- Sleep.
- My aunt's fascination with ThinkGeek.
0 Cafes with tasty food and nice people.
0 The fact that, despite my attempts to write posts (and tags for that matter) failing miserably, it has had little to do with the fact that I've been in the wrong state of mind. (Hurrah for outside influences?)
- My mother being mostly tolerable.
- We have everything to make brownies whenever I feel up to it.

Things what are not pleasing:
- Waking up with a headache and not three minutes after, having something fall into my eye and being unable to flush it out.
- Doctors, especially neurologists but really, doctors in general.
- The fact that, because he has no battery at the moment, I can't unplug him. This has happened and I have lost tags/posts multiple times today.
- The bits of my mother that are not tolerable, even now.
- My own occasional fail. (Had to look over something before the neurologist and really would have been better looking at it while I was still at home).

There are other things that belong on these lists but I am still not awake. I am going to attempt to stay in the world of the conscious and hopefully get though some tags/do some productive Embassy stuff then....Meh, I don't know. Things. Useful things and if not useful tan at least interesting. The words are interchangeable to me at this point.
whatawaytoburn: (DW: Stimulants are where it's at)
My plans for the day:
Start the laundry
Get lunch
Go to school and get classes resolved
Start doing the cast lists for [livejournal.com profile] chaos_thon
Possibly look through [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic and bookmark prompts.
Enjoy the fact that my girlfriend is finally going to be home.

Alex is going to be home at 2, Sofu is picking me up at 3 and if I'm lucky, I should be home before 6.

My back is pretty bad today, not too sure why. I'm going to see if the warm water helps and if not, I'm going to need to edit the list above to add 'use the massage thing for half an hour and see if it helps'.

I also need to track down my magnifier. I have managed to lose the damn thing in less than twenty four hours. Hopefully it's at Sofu's and if not? Well, I'm not going to think about if not. I'd rather not have to purchase yet another one.
whatawaytoburn: (Default)
Things that have been acquired in the past twenty four hours:
- An electric mixer
- A proper sized coffee maker (that I have rather gleefully broken in)
- A cat carrier
- Christmas ornaments
- Measuring cups
- Milk

Yay free stuff! My mother can drive me up the bloody wall sometimes but then she brings us free things and I forgive her.
whatawaytoburn: (DW: Eight smiles)
Good Things That Have Happened Today:
- I got coffee.
- I got books (The first Dresden book, A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore and a collection of poems by Leonard Cohen.)
- I've turned in the application for the apartment (again)
- I posted fic.
- I got the Master set up.
- I aquired two new lighters.
- I have money in the bank.

You know, it hasn't exactly been eventful but damnit, I can almost say I'm bcontent with today.
whatawaytoburn: (Default)
Things I have gained this weekend:
- Assurance that my mother is crazy
- The Serenity comic.
- Doctor Who: The Forgotten #6
- Momento
- Bright Lights, Big City.
- Seven new verses.
- The knowledge that there is a peaceful place to run to close by my house and an awesome place to get ice cream and milkshakes (and movies!).
- Many a good quote.
- New bits of writing on my Wall.
- I'm sure there are other things too, lots of them in fact, but I can't actually remember them at this very second. The point is that this weekend was win.
- Oh! We have chocolate sauce, whipped cream and cherries. Yummmmm.

The week so far has not been nearly as much fun as our weekend, I'm sad to say. Slept a lot, attended classes, wandered around Ybor City in the cold. I did remember to take pictures while I was doing it, so yay for that!

Yeah, not many interesting things to say, I'm afraid. Oh well.

And now a love meme.
whatawaytoburn: (Default)
Things I did do today:
- Write for Nano (Oh Caraway, I swear I'll write you a happyhappy piece soon...Maybe)
- Catch up on everyone else's Nano. (Unless someone's updated since the last time I did the rounds.
- sleep
- Re-do my profile because I am a sheep..

...Eh, so it wasn't that productive a day. I'll deal.
