Friends Only :)

Friends Only
Comment to be added

Welcome to my journal.

I'm currently selectively adding friends. Don't take it personally if I don't add you. I have a lot of people already on my Flist so unless I know you from around a fandom or through a mutual acquaintance, I will be reluctant to add you.

This took forever...but I realized I needed to do it because as it is, my fics are scattered and badly tagged.

You can go to soapboxblues and find my master fic list, but if you're lazy (like me) I've put it here.

The Master Fic ListCollapse )

yuletide 2013 letter

My grandmother passed away late last night. They knew she was not going to make it home to die and so she decided to sign up for hospice care at the hospital. They had been lowering her oxygen over the past few days, and they had just started her on the morphine drip the morning she passed. No one expected for her to go that soon. But it was peaceful. She just drifted off to sleep and didn't wake up.

I feel numb right now. I haven't been able to cry yet. I just get super emotional and start almost hyperventilating, but there's no release. No wave of tears to provide relief. It's an awful feeling. She lived a long and mostly happy life, filled with love and hope and above all else, deep, unwavering faith in something bigger then herself (there are so many good stories from this week that made me a believer too). I can't help but feel like a world without her in it isn't a place I want to live in. Because I am surrounded by cynics and she was the only optimist in my life. It's going to suck without her and damn it, if I don't fucking cry soon I think I might scream.

[+] I could have found a more appropriate gif but I think every once and a while, people should have a little Luna Lovegood in their day. Plus this ship just needs more love in general.

[+] I started a new job. This is the one I was applying for a few entries ago. They offered me the position just after Christmas and I gave my two weeks notice at the beginning of the year so I just started this week. So now I no longer work for a dealership doing internet sales. Now, I'm a customer service analyst for an insurance company. With the new job comes a big bump in pay and some pretty sweet benefits. Additionally, there's the bonus of the eye candy for a manager. Seriously guys he is ridiculously good looking to the point where it could be distracting. But other than that, it's been going really well. No snags.

[+] Other than that: My grandma has been in and out of the ICU this month. She has pneumonia and is having trouble getting her oxygen regulated. She can barely breath on her own. Plus, she's got cancer all over her body and she's 83 years old which means there's little they can do to treat it. So basically we're just keeping her in our prayers and hoping she can get home to live out what's left of her life (be it days, months or years) in peace. So yeah...if you pray, please keep her in your prayers. If not, you can just send some positive energy my family's way if at all possible.

[+] Crossover fic for xover_exchange is nearly done. I'm going to be cutting it close this year. Mostly because this crossover ship I'm focusing on wanted me to write like six different fics for them but not finish any of them. So now I'm going to a bunch of half written crossover fics just sitting in My Documents. But yeah, my beta is already peeved about this fic because the one fandom is something she promised herself not to read fic of and well just wait until I tell her she's gonna have less than 24 hours to edit.

[+] I've run out of things to talk about. Hope you all are doing well! :)

It's athletes like her that make the Olympics just that much more awesome. She was fantastic. So poised and focused. She did great work on each and every one of the events and watching her win the all-around pretty much made the games for me. Well that and seeing Phelps break the record for most Olympic medals. And just any chance to stare at Ryan Lochte. What a fine looking man.

(The raven announcing the betrothal arrives on the same day at the same hour to both households. They'll never know it, but it's something of note - a good omen, perhaps for those who believe in them.)

happy new year + picspam

[+] Hello, everyone! I hope you had a fantastic New Year's Eve and are off to a great start for this next year. I've spent mine mostly at home, taking down decorations and cleaning house. I had New Year's Eve off which was a miracle. It was the first time in a while that I got to spend two days off in a row.

I've also been working on a mega-picspam to end the year. Based on some of the memes that have been floating around, but also for the challenge at picspammy which was year end lists...

my 2011 year end list...complete with ramblingsCollapse )
[+] Lost HoHoHo fic for lostsquee is finished and it was exhausting. I forgot how fun it is to write for that fandom, but also how difficult it can be. I haven't written something that extensive since the finale. But what I wrote was the last thing on my bucket list of things I want to write for Lost. So yay for that!

[+] My mood has improved since my last post where I was drunk dialing my ex-almost-mother-in-law and eating too much sugar. These things happen, but the embarrassment kept me away from most of LJ for like a week. The stress of the holiday was almost unbearable at that point. But now I've done all my X-mas shopping and I didn't go into debt *knocks on wood* so I'm feeling better.

[+] Speaking of the holiday, we had our work's Christmas party this Saturday. I have a feeling I might have done something stupid because there was drinking and while I remember most of the night I got a text this morning asking me how I know the lyrics to Sister Golden Hair Surprise by heart when I'm only 24 and that I don't remember but if karaoke occurred, I'm screwed. I'm just hoping my co-worker friends kept me in line. We always look out for each other at these things and I really don't want to be the cautionary tale that the guys tell the newbies when preparing for these things.

[+] I finally got a chance to catch up on a bunch of my shows. Boardwalk Empire BROKE MY HEART as did Once Upon a Time, but the former hurt more than the latter. I need to give up Glee. The Rachel-Quinn stuff is not enough to keep me watching. Also, Psych has been good but something about it is bugging me and I have a bad feeling I know what it is. I'm glad it went on hiatus now. Finally, Person of Interest is AWESOME.

[+] Twilight - Terrible books. Terrible movies. Fantastic soundtracks. I was blackmailed into seeing the last movie by my cousin and in order to keep from clawing my eyes out I focused on the music. SO GOOD. Does Meyer get any of the profits from the soundtracks? I'm considering buying this last movie's but I don't want to give her money.

[+] Ending on a meme because it's something to do. Hope everyone's holiday season is going well.
