Well, assuming the pattern from the June LSAT holds true, I'll have my score by about 3pm-ish tomorrow. Otherwise, the official score release day is Monday. If I have to wait until Monday, I'll go bonkers.

But at the same time -- I don't want my score. I'm afraid I did worse given the bronchitis. And yeah -- I want them and I don't.


Damned if I do... and damned if I don't. Why does what law school you get into have to do SO much with how you scored on a standardized test? I have a 3.6 GPA. I'm not stupid. I just don't test well.

Bah. Is it Friday yet?

Here we are... LSAT day once more. Now, if only my throat would stop hurting and my nose stop running, we'd be all set. *sigh* Why I had to get sick the day before the exam is beyond me.

So here goes nothing. Vibes today are muchly, muchly appreciated.

Currently it's LSAT 1; Lia 0. Let's see if today doesn't even the odds a bit.

Note to self:

Next time you go anywhere where you're expecting to be walking outside for hours on end in the SUN please to be remembering sunscreen. It tends to help. On occasion.

Or at least, it'll not make showering a very, very painful experience.

In other news -- [ profile] sbnrko35 and I went to Cedar Point yesterday with free passes from my dad. He won them four days ago. They expired September 1st of this year. Please tell me how that was fair. But we went, had a blast, and he got me on a couple more coasters (Millennium Force, Raptor, Iron Dragon, Maverick and the Mine Ride) -- and had an all around blast. Yes, I'm looking at you [ profile] avengangle and [ profile] xpolmex I adored the raptor so STFU.

In ooother news -- I have no idea when I'm going to be able to LSAT study with job. Yes, mother dearest is letting me have lunch break to work over stuff... but between work and Producers? *sigh* Oh well. Not much I can do about that, now can I? *siiigh*

And in even MORE other news... Work is kicking my ass and this week is going to be just this side of hellish. TR folks -- once we get Producers up, Daemon will so definitely be around it's not funny. I'm just working 10+ hour days at the present to get all these costumes done. *headdesk* so [ profile] genaschuyler -- let [ profile] bugly42 that I'm sorry I've been SO slow but I've been exhausted at night and I'll catch up with her as I can this week. ♥

1. Drama (of the game wankage variety) sucks. You lot know me and that I am probably the nicest, most diplomatic person ever. Let's just say I was so pissed off yesterday that even *I* couldn't write a diplomatic email telling said person off. *sigh* God I miss AAH. I really, really do.

2. Yes, I just ordered this. After hemming and hawing all day, I gave in and bought it.

3. I'm down (according to H&M and their pretty stretchy skirt) a size 14!! Still a tiny bit tight, but I'm feeling very good about myself. I'm ALMOST down 20 pounds since the beginning of May. Weight Watchers and Wii Fit FTW!

4. *squee!* [ profile] hp_summersmut starts posting tomorrow -- er... in about 15 minutes!!! I really should figure out a posting order, shouldn't I. There's some really, really amazing stuff in this round. I think you guys will really enjoy it.

5. Went to an LSAT meeting this evening and am back to feeling good about stuff again. I shall overcome you, you damned 154!!

♥ How are you guys doing?

I'm... slowly working through comments. I honestly and truly love you guys beyond words. I am doing loads better than I was about a week ago. Am I still disappointed in my score? Yeah, I am. But I also know it's not the end of the world. I am going to retake them in October and have already talked to Kaplan and got a new set of materials to start working. So, starting on monday -- I'm going to work my ass off even harder.

I know I can do this. And I know a lot of this is mental. I know I'm smart -- but I also know I've felt as if I've been going uphill for a couple of years after the car accident. And I know I haven't been the same since. But my mindset just feels different this time around. So... we'll see how that goes, eh?

Just simply -- ♥ thank you. I don't know what I'd do without so many truly amazing people in my life.

My birthday is tomorrow -- and I'm going to be 24. Holy shit, where has this time gone? Though -- an appropriate birthday present to myself is the fact that I've lost about 16 pounds since May. Could have been more, but there were a couple of things stressing me out during June. No idea what they could have been. None whatsoever. ;o) *cheers Weight Watchers* I've even gotten back into my Gap jeans! *squee*

Also! To Cleveland this weekend to celebrate my (and Jonno's) birthday. w00t! On Friday when I got my score, [ profile] sbnrko35 basically ordered me to Cleveland this saturday and said I was sleeping on his floor. So, no offense [ profile] avengangle! I'll crash with you guys in a couple of weeks. And have to figure out when [ profile] xpolmex and I can get our butts over to Cedar Point. So much to do, and the summer's nearly half over! Gyah!

So the main point of this post...

Comment here and I'll give you a pick-me up. A nice word, piece of music (and yes, it'll be b'way oriented. shush), or just something to brighten your day. Because you guys brighten mine.
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Naked :: Disappointed)
Yep. I'm already registered for October. Score came in today -- few days earlier than scheduled which was fine with me. Well, would have been fine if my score wasn't so low.

Alright. So, I'm sure a lot of people would be happy with a 154. I'm in the 60th percentile. But still... It's not what I wanted. I was hoping to score about 165. That's what I was testing before I took the actual test. Needless to say, I'm so fucking disappointed in myself it's not funny. I'm just feeling like anytime I try to push my life in a direction I get a door slammed in my face. I couldn't get into schools for Music History. Tried (albeit one) school for violin performance and got rejected. And now scoring so low.

I'm just... I feel absolutely lost.

♥ Thanks, guys, for putting up with me. And thanks for all the amazingly brilliant comments on my last couple of posts. I seriously do not know what I'd do without you guys right now. I really, really don't. I'm blessed to have such amazing and supportive friends. I'll hit up replies tomorrow. Right now... I'm just not up for looking at much.

I need a hug right about now. *sigh* Or some vodka.

Oh God.

Apparently, according to TLS, scores are out. My mother is trying to convince me that they're not out and this is just a bunch of people fucking with us. And she also doesn't get why I'd post my score online when I get them.

Thus far... I have nothing.

Oh god, I'm ready to throw up.

ETA: I got my score. Don't expect to see me tonight. I'm drinking heavily. I'm a fucking failure and I'm retaking in October.
thescarletwoman: (Theatre // Sunday :: George Drawing)
Pictures from Sunday in the Park are forthcoming.

The Good:
* I just got invited to join [ profile] daily_deviant! w00t! *dance*
* SQUEE! [ profile] rs_games reveals went up today! *cheers for PostHogwarts!*
* Also just got into TR. At last, my Daemon muse has a home!

The Bad:
* Boss sent me home early. For no reason, just sent me home. So that means I drove 10 miles today... to work for 90 minutes. With gas at 4 bucks a gallon... yeah. That makes me happy. Ass.

The Ugly:
*LSAT scores... either tomorrow or Monday. Tell me I can stop freaking out now?
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Legally Blonde :: LSATs)

Well, I survived. Barely, but I survived.

Thanks for all the hugs and well wishes. I think they really did help. I'm honestly not sure how I did. Leaving the test centre I was so insanely disappointed. Three months of studying and the test nicely kicked my ass. I think my first section ended up being the experimental (having three Logic Reasoning sections is nothing short of cruel and unusual punishment). The Logic Games totally killed me. One of the games had six entities and THREE were floaters. One of the others was worded strangely and a third had a vertical setup which, after spending a few days at TLS hasn't been used on the LSAT since the mid 1990s.

One consolation prize: hearing a girl just before entering the room say 'man. I just took my first practice test a couple days ago. Man is it hard!'

Realistically, I'm hoping for a -10 to -12 curve (aka -- you can miss 10 and still get a 170) and will end up with a 168. But at this point? I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up in the upper 150s (which makes me not at ALL happy) and will end up retaking the exam in October. Joy.

Once the scores are released, I'll have more indepth coverage of the LSATs. As of right now... I'm trying to relax and get my life back to some semblance of normalcy.

♥ I hope everyone has had a good week!

This also means I start working on my TR app, right?
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Legally Blonde :: LSATs)
Well... here we are. D-Day.

I'm leaving here in a little over an hour to head down to Gannon for the LSATs. On Friday, I finished taking a practise exam and scored about a 163. I knew I had to in my own prep get into that range and can do it again on test day. If my score stays right there, I'll have gained about 20 points over the course of my study time in 3-ish months.

I'm very, very ready for this exam to be over. It is what it is and I did as much work for it as I could have. And, worst case scenario, I can retake it in October if I crash and burn.

Good vibes sent my way this afternoon will be very, very much appreciated! ♥

And yes, I'm still pissed South Passaic won just about everything last night. My poor Sunday in the Park. *sigh*
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Legally Blonde :: LSATs)
Well, here we are. The home stretch. The LSATs are officially in a week and I'm finding myself oscillating between scared shitless and 'it is what it is'. I know I'm at the point where there's little I can do to change anything and I know all the theory and what I need. I have to finish test 4 today and I'll have completed everything that Kaplan requires. So if I totally bomb, I can re-take. Which is a good, good safety net to have.

Just give me Elle's score. I'll be happy.

Soon my self-proclaimed hiatus will be over. On the 16th, I'm planning on getting rather tipsy. And once those are over, we return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

including fic writing, the muse I just acquired for [ profile] theatrical_muse and... working on my application for TR *shifty*
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Legally Blonde :: LSATs)
God, just kill me now.

The LSATs are officially in less than a month and I think I've just hit insane panic!mode. I'm taking another practise exam tomorrow and we'll see what my score does. If I can jump a goodly amount right about now, I'll stop fretting (as) much. But right now... seeing where my score is (a 150 *wince*) and knowing where I need it to be (170ish *WINCE*) I'm about three steps away from freaking out.

Well... more like two and a half.

The Kaplan program is absolutely amazing and I will admit, after having not been in school for a good two years, restarting was insanely hard. But I think I've found my stride.

*points to icon* Agreeing with [ profile] violet_quill on this one. The fact that she scored what she did... is sickening. I want Elle's score!

Strangely? Doing a couple of shows has done more to improve my mental well-being than anything. And back down to the Playhouse tonight for one of the infamous David/Andrew concerts. Ooooh will this be fun. AND we're playing Rhapsody in Blue as well as a shitload of Sondheim. I'm a happy girl.

Didn't end up completing LMoM at [ profile] pervy_werewolf but I gave it a good run. When it came down to finishing pr0n or faceplanting into my texts, I chose the latter -- though decidedly not as much fun.

How have you all been? Any finals-related deaths to report?

Thanks guys for all your well wishes! I will get to replying to comments, it's just been a busy week! Still getting used to the change in work schedule which, yay more hours but boo as it takes away my evening time. Ah well. Such is life.

Still not sure if I'm going to send in my resume to audition of not. I mean, it's SUCH a thrill to be invited to audition but at the same time? I haven't been playing as much as I had in the past and I don't know if I can actually pull it together before the 3rd, especially considering I'm studying for the LSATs too, and frankly, that's more important to me right now. So... we'll see. In happier news, after only 5 of my class sessions I managed to boost my score up to a 150. Booyah.

*points to icon* Extremely depressing what her scores were. *mutters darkly*

Two bits of Fandom News:
1. I'm reccing for [ profile] crack_broom this month, Remus/Bill. I already have a couple of ideas of what to rec, but if you guys have a favourite fic or piece of art, shout it out!

2. Am doing LMoM this year. I must be insane. But... I think it'll help my brain get off the insane plot kick it's on lately. Now, just so long as all my fics for this aren't 6k a day, we'll be set. I have a really neat overarching plot idea. HOWEVER. I want input from you guys. I want to do 31 different pairings/permeations. Thus, Remus/Lily, Remus/Lily/James and Remus/Lily/Sirius are three different pairings. So -- suggest! And if you run out of room, comments are brilliant too. :D

[Poll #1180815]
thescarletwoman: (Movies // Clue :: How I Did It)
Home from Cleveland and playing catch-up. Comments to come shortly. *stares at LSAT book* okay... maybe tomorrow. *shifty*

I've been fighting off a migraine for the past day. There was a gas leak or something in the neighborhood yesterday. Scary part was the gas company refused to answer phone calls or send anyone out to look at it. Still have headache from that. Oye.

Happier news! [ profile] snarry_games fic is pwned. Totally. It's clocking in at 18k and is off to the beta now. I swear... my [ profile] rs_games or anything else I have on the back burner is going to be a complete and total PWP. I love me my plot but these last two fics have nearly killed me.

And if you haven't seen, yes IJ is down. I REALLY hope that we're not going to lose a month's worth of posts and data. *wibbles at the thought* RPs can be reconstructed... but still. it'll be a TON of work to get everything back. *headdesk* Updates on IJ here: Twitter: IJ.

Also! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR [ profile] hp_summersmut. Last chance to sign up if you haven't already!

How is the beginning of your week my dear, dear flist?
thescarletwoman: (HP // Lucius :: Pophecy)
*waves to all*

Sorry about the radio silence last week. I just now realised I never actually posted. *headdesk* In any case, life is good post-station work. I'm STILL waiting to hear back from the county about the damn job at the courthouse. Me and patience do NOT get along well, and thus far I've been patient for over 2 months. The patience, it's running out precious.

In other news -- Springsmut is finished, sent in and all that jazz. So glad to have that out of the way. *ignores looming deadlines of [ profile] slashfest and [ profile] snarry_games at present*

Otherwise -- just have been busy. Took my first LSAT on saturday and I think it went half-way decently. Still hate the logic reasoning but logic games are currently my friend. That is, assuming I did as well on them as I thought I did... :/ Hoping I'm somewhere in the 160-165 range to start. That way, if what they say is true, I should gain a 10 point bump with studying. And that would give me my 175ish score... and hello Georgetown! (hopefully...)

I haven't had a chance to read ye olde flist this past week. I had my nose buried in [ profile] avengangle's LSAT 180 book. How was your week guys?

Challenge for you: tell me one good and one bad thing that happened last week. And if nothing bad happened, share all the good! ♥
