RL. It's a killer. It really, really is. Between having some internetses problems and RL in general, well, you know the drill. Life does, however, finally seem like it's giving me a bit of a break. ♥

The Good
Finished my first year of law school. Barely survived, but I DID manage to finish it. Had a wonderful birthday today and ♥ to the well-wishes. *snugs* Am also going to England in a few months. Yes, I got accepted to the study abroad programme in the spring. OMGSOEXCITED!!

In other news? I've pretty much decided what I want to do with my law career. I want to work in the government in some capacity. I'm doing a federal clerkship right now and I've never been happier. It's a lot of work, but the work I'm doing is fascinating and I love it beyond words. I'm seriously considering going into the JAG Corps (USAF). So we'll see. the thought of OCS scares the shit out of me.

The Bad
Issues with school. I had... well, I had a good semester. But it, apparently, wasn't good enough for school. No, I'm not getting kicked out or anything -- but they are taking my scholarship. Which, well, sucks. No probation, no nothing. ;_; we're talking to school sometime this week to find out WTF is going on.

The Ugly
Suppose the stuff about school can go under the ugly category. But, instead, I'm putting the Rainbow People there. Seriously. Look them up and see what I've been dealing with for the past several weeks. X_x


I hope you all have been doing well. I'm sorry I haven't been the greatest LJ friend in the world lately. Really, I rather suck. *sigh* But know I love you all to itty bitty pieces -- even if I'm fairly silent over here right now.

And I swear I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing. I know I have some unfinished fics, one of which has been sitting a year. *cries* But really, it's coming.

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.

This has just been... such a crap week. Scratch that, a crap year.

Seriously. Where's that restart button.

I'm actually really thankful I have a meeting with my therapist tomorrow to do some unloading. ♥ I appreciate all the offers to chat but there are times when in person is just... it's different. I've tried talking to my parents about Anj, but they just don't get it. I think it's a generational thing, really.

They see her as an acquaintance and several times when I've tried to talk to them about it, I get corrected when I refer to her as a friend. In their minds, because I never sat down and had coffee with her, she's not a 'true friend'. Did we exchange a boat-load of IMs? No. But we made a connection, and sometimes that's all that matters.

On top of that... my grandfather's in the hospital. Those of you who have been around here for a while know there's... not much love lost with him anymore. He's now speaking to us... it's been over a year since we exchanged words after he hung up on my mother after telling her twice to 'shut up'. How HE remembers it... he called THREE months ago and tried to tell mom that he fell and she wouldn't let him get a word in edgewise. Which is a total lie. But now he's ill and has been in and out of hospital for the past couple of weeks. I honestly don't know how I feel about this, but I see how it's tearing dad apart right now. He hates his father with a passion, yet he still is his father and my dad has to deal with all of this. On top of that, my uncle and the woman he cheated on my aunt with and married two years ago (her fifth, his fourth marriage) -- are now on the outs.

There's family stress. There's me not really being able to mourn the way I need to mourn.

This gets easier, right?

♥♥ in case I haven't told you guys lately -- I love you all. I honestly and truly do.

Also known as... oh, god, I think I'm upright!

It's been... one helluva week.

Monday- I got to close at Lynch. Now, this wouldn't be a bad thing except for the fact that Jim left me BY MYSELF. I've closed MAYBE two other times and that was with Tim doing everything and just showing me what to do. He leaves and all hell broke loose. The phone was ringing off the hook, people kept coming into the store and I was nearly in tears by the end of the night. Let's just say... a busy day at Lynch is about four people coming in. I probably had about 14 customers in the course of 3 hours. And most of them were in the store in batches of three or four at a time PLUS the phone ringing. Not a happy Lia was I.

Tuesday- Basically had a complete and total breakdown where teh boy is concerned. However, this was later chalked up to the fact that I had about fifteen hours worth of sleep over a period of about four days so I wasn't exactly mentally balanced as it was. He basically just talked to me at the theatre, I left and burst into tears for no apparent reason. Had Avenue Q on in the car with "It's a Fine, Fine Line" repeating which didn't help matters.

Wednesday- Wake up to my father waking me saying the power is out. Joy. Turns out it went out around 3am. Go to Lynch for a nice quiet day (thankfully!) return and the power was still off. So I texted [ profile] jateshi and [ profile] wook77 about it... and as an afterthought, I also texted the boy. Boy replies in about two minutes and invited me over to watch 24. So I went, inspite of my breakdown yesterday and just enjoyed my time with him. Had uberly good meeting with therapist after that and by the time I got home, power was back on. However, wednesday was the beginning of the cough.

Thursday- Couldn't. Fucking. Move. Skipped work and ended up sleeping for about 16 hours. Only time out of bed was basically to do [ profile] hogwarts_today then went back to bed.

Friday- Lather, rinse, repeat. Though not with the sixteen hours of sleep thing.

At least today I'm finally feeling better. On Thursday I had a fever of about 102*... and I'm a person who has a normal body temp of about 97.4*. So fever that high really was NOT GOOD.

So, my darling flist, I hope your week was a helluva lot better than mine. And also -- massive, massive love to everyone who left me a note on [ profile] tarie's snap-cups meme. It was the high point for me this week. Seriously. ♥ I love you guys.

*peeks out*

So... I realised I haven't updated this thing in a while. Whoops. I've just... not been around. Job is back to being quasi-stressful as the school year winds down. Early morning at McKinley once more and all that fun stuff. Plus it's been storming really bad here and I hate being online when it's storming. Bah.

Is it summer yet?

But life is good. [ profile] hp_summersmut is shaping up to be made of awesome this year. In other fun and fandomish news, I am one of the new editors over at [ profile] rpg_prophet. May as well put that RPG watching I do to good use, eh?

I also have fic. I'm finally going through it -- but it's something that was started about 6 months ago when chatting with [ profile] dramaphile about slang words for pot... and somewhere finding Dumbledore as being slang for marijuana. Now I can't find the site for the LIFE of me. Go figure. But it was there at the time. So fic forthcoming. REALLY. (as well as that horcock fic [ profile] r_grayjoy got in my head a few months back *mutters*)

Things are good. I'll be glad when May is over and I no longer have to deal with the children. I'm SO ready to be done teaching for a while.

How are you all, my darling flist? ♥

Also... need icons of Ralph in the trailer. My GOD that man should not look so gorgeous without a nose. *sigh*
