so, when i moved (yay for move being done *does happy dance*) i decided that i need a more simpler and easier life, and started to define that for me, since that is what living simply is all about, and also getting rid of much stuff. you wouldnt believe how much stuff i threw out- starting with papers, and ending with clothes and everything in between (but for books and plants because i like plants, and i dream of my own library and so having books around makes me calm).
but now my question:
christmas is coming, and ppl tend to give you stuff on christmas, which i would have to throw out, seing as i dont WANT it in my life, as stuff is clutter, and clutter drags me down. i also dont want clothes because i now know how many i own, and its INSANE, and i am still slowly going through sorting that out- after the big sort out i already had...
how much of a prat and evil person am i when i go and say to my nice family: know how for christmas you always give me nice stuff, please dont do that. instead i would like in no order of importance:

  • a nice trip for a day or something

  • special food i would never be able to afford myself

  • books- all the books, any books

  • vid-games: you know like overwatch- which i have been talking about forever, but its still so expensive and i cant spent that money right now... or some others of my list...


does this make me spoiled and ungrateful? i just dont want them to spend money on stuff i would throw away before the new year, really...
*is conflicted*

update from the cat-front

so on the job-hunt front so far nothing new... and sadly it gets depressing with how many of those firms don't even say that they dont need you (luckily most here do)

but on completely unrelated and better news: this cat finally got a healthy net connection! you do not know how much you need the net for the simplest things these days, until you dont really have the option. i am one of the fortunate enough to have a mobile contract where unlimited net is included- but after 2gb they cut it down to like 125bits a min and you have no imagination of how SLOW that is, it takes forever to load just one picture- this is also the reason i am behind on [community profile] hp_podfic_fest, but i will listen to the ones i didnt yet get around to.
edit: obviously i dont complain about time without net when i choose to be off the net- but for job search and application sending net is kinda the only way these days at least here..

on super unrelated news (because i am trying to make that a thing apparently)
thanks so much for lovely post-cards to [personal profile] themightyflynn, who sent me an adorable card from australia
and to [personal profile] enchanted_jae who sent me a very nice card from duluth- which fits perfectly in my ocean themed entry!!! thank you <3

and finally on different unrelated news: my muse is broken somehow, and i seem unable to fix her, which really is starting to get me broken too *headdesks*

but not all is doom and gloom so i shall go for the happy vipe and wish you a good time!



It's good to be home. :)

Hi!!!!!! Finally! Back from my vacations at last. A bit latter than I originally intended; the airport in Panama didn't have power for over six hours when I was supposed to come back and a lot of flights got delayed and/or cancelled including mine. I had never truly appreciated how nice and cold airports are. Jeez it was hot!

But I survived my family vacations. No small feat this time since it actually included a hurricane. I'm so sorry if I worried you about this, I did keep in touch with LQ and Birds, and Eidheann, and best co-mods Grace & Cissa and they would have totally updated you if there was something to update. It was rather very stressful until the last day when it was really scary and then it was very busy doing all the things. Thankfully, I know we were extremely lucky in our foolishness. But! Hogwarts, and Hogsmeade, and Diagon Alley were wonderful, but it was crazy, crazy, crazy. ^^

Already running to catch up with life and work and fandom. I was supposed to have a buffer day after coming back but that wasn't possible and in fact it turns out I have to travel this Monday again for work which I was not expecting. It's holiday here, but not in the rest of my country and I totally missed that when I accepted and now, well, traveling in a couple of days and missing a day off. Boo!

I'm going to do my best to try and catch up. I'd throw a 'YAY HOME' but oh my god, I rather feel I need vacations from my vacations and I'm so not ready to be back. :O

But in better news, my nipples are on top of their form so I have that going for me. LOL

I missed you so much! ♥ ♥ ♥

And if succeeding in his mission involves putting up with a naked, willing Albus Severus? Well, that's a price that Scorpius will just have to pay.

Oh man. I've actually had some good writing time over this past week, and my brain has completely not known what do even do with it.

New words this week : 642 words which brings my September wordcount goal to 642 / 20000. Which I really ought to lower to something that's more approaching reasonable, but hope spring eternal and all that.

WIPs worked on this week : 1, no new WIPs (yay!)

HP
pwp take 2 : 642 words which brings the total to 4207 words and I'm at the point where I'm not quite sure how to end it beyond "orgasms for everyone!" which, it's a pwp, that's pretty much a given.
