So, a New Year! ^_^ Ringing it in with a bang, so far, by being utterly sick with the most *classic* case of the cold you can possibly imagine. My nose hurts from too much snooooooot... T_T

BUT! 2010 promises to be a good year! With [ profile] zombres coming up to visit me (!!!) Still happy with Kyle (cross my fingers)! Another New York trip to see musicals! STUDYING ABROAD IN LONDON!!! Tons of Alice/Hatter, since my only resolution is to finish my [ profile] mission_insane challenge, which means writing approx. 200 fics! (I think I've got about a dozen done so far, so I'm off to a good start.)

Positive things, you guys! ^_^

Here's some picspam to set of 2010 in styyyyle!


School: Love econ, but I got a horrible grade on the last huge test so now I really need to rock this next one out of the park so I can hope to get a B. Or even pass the class, really, because right now I'm not... and I can't express how much that bothers me, since I should be rocking this class so hard it's forgotten its name. So I'm studying for the next Huge Econ test, which happens to be... the day before RENT opens. Thanks, prof.

Calculus scares me. I try not to think about it. Luckily, the next Huge Calculus test isn't until a week after RENT opens, so I have time to panic for that one.

Only four more weeks of Chinese and then I'm done with the Grinnell Chinese Department forever. HUZZAH!

Shakespeare continues to be awesome. Thought-provoking class that requires little to no effort or preparation on my part. GOLD.

Personal Life: Got a boyfriend. His name is Kyle, and he's wonderful, but we're long-distance because he lives in California and goes to school in Oregon. Anyway, he's not really a huge talker, so he doesn't contact me as much as I would like, which bothers me just a bit. I might bring it up to him later. I don't think it's anything personal, but I don't want it to be a symptom of something bigger, so I might bring it up.

Nanowrimo: Totally falling by the wayside until RENT is over. I've got a little over 2,000 words so far, which is horrible, but I'm going to word sprint it to the end in the last couple of weeks. I've got all Thanksgiving break, right? Right. >.> I'll make it work. My pride will not suffer me to not win NaNo this year -- I'm the ML for Grinnell, for chrissake, I've got to finish!


COOL STUFF I'VE DONE LATELY: There's a girl who sits next to me in Calculus named Sally, who is a total sweetheart and I adore. Well, I've got "Bad Wolf" written on my pencil pouch, and one day I brought it out and put it on the table in preparation for class, like I always do, and Sally gives this huge gasp. "Bad Wolf!" and my ears perk up and I'm like, "Doctor Who?" and she says, "I've been obsessed with it all weekend, I started watching it last Saturday and I can't stop. I've watched the past two seasons in three days." and I said, "What episode are you on?" AND SHE SAID, "I'M ABOUT TO WATCH THE SEASON TWO FINALE."

YOU GUYS. [ profile] zombres, you will surely appreciate this. I discovered a DW fan, and a huge Rose/Doctor shipper, JUST BEFORE DOOMSDAY. IN THAT PERILOUS TIME JUST BEFORE YOUR SHIPPER'S INNOCENCE AND YOUR SOUL IS DAMAGED FOREVER. I wibbled for her inside, knowing what was in store.

(BTW, about an hour after Caclulus class ended, she texted me saying "I cried. A lot." I LOVE THIS GIRL)

So now we've been marathoning DW once a week since then, and she loves Donna and Rose and is sort of meh about Martha, which is wonderful. That DW time is sustaining me. <3
So, I've been marathoning the first season of "Ugly Betty" like a mad thing -- I always knew I would like that show, but I never wanted to get hooked because I couldn't afford the time to get hooked to *another* show. But it's so much fun! There's great Fag&Hag Friendships, and funny dialogue, and people being ador(k)able and smiling goofily at each other. And fashion. I mean, seriously, this show was like MADE for me.

Not to mention that the character of Henry HAS RUINED MEN FOR ME. FOREVER.

He is...! You guys...! I mean, will you look at that smiley icon!? He's so incredibly adorkable I have to pause my video after almost every one of his lines so I can giggle and squee to such an extent that I'm glad I'm watching it alone because otherwise it would be embarrassing. He is my Zachary Quinto. He is my David Tennant. I AM IN MAD, HOT, NERDY FANGIRL LOVE, OVER HERE.

Even now when I LOOK at this icon I make involuntary noises that sounds embarrassingly like a pen of newborn piglets. Little choking noises and impossibly high-pitched "meep"s are standard.

I NEED HELP. Do they have rehab for this sort of thing? *sob*
