So, school has pretty much gone to hell in a hand basket.

Cut for bitchy ranting. )

Things have gone so far that I’ve had to drop out of [ profile] holmes_big_bang, because there’s no way in hell I’ll manage that. As you can imagine, I’m a little bit upset by that.
Oh well, now I can put my whole heart and soul into my and [ profile] ladylovelace’s project, at least. I’ll go and work on those illustrations I’m so terribly behind with.

But, on a happier note: Shakira’s Lo Imprescindible is apparently the Sherlock Holmes movie in Spanish, minus the Lord Blackwood plotline. How interesting. ♥ (Original lyrics and a translation.)

Fffffff. Why does she have to be so awesome and gorgeous? Why can't she be one or the other?

I've just seen Die Welle with my class.

Not for the first time, I'm sad for the fact that I'm the only one who seems to actually enjoy analyzing and discussions here. Right now I feel really down because of it, though.

Nope, I'm still on hiatus. Just thought I'd give some signs of life and a quick update of what's been going on.

Dear Self, )

So, well, yeah…

… Oh, bugger this, I can’t even compose a simple journal entry. Case in point, I suppose.

So. Focus. Right. I know I just came back from a holiday, but I feel that I need to take another hiatus. Not a complete, I’m-leaving-LJ-bye-bye one, but more of an I’ll-go-into-lurker-mode one. I’ll read my f-list every day, I’ll read the entries, I might even comment, but I won’t be updating or be regular with commenting.
It’s just that too much is happening at the moment. Nothing bad or so, absolutely not! Just, school starts next week, and as much as I’m looking forward to it, I’m also deadly nervous and I know it’s going to drain me utterly. And then the extra pressure of feeling that I have to social at LJ on top of it, as well as the subsequent disappointment with myself when I fail to be so, I can’t handle that at the moment. So I’ll say that I’ll be pretty much absent, lurking, apart from some sporadic guest appearances.

I will still post fics and fanart as I produce them. I haven’t posted much this summer because I’ve been busy producing things. So right now I have, like, ten different projects or something lying about half-finished or more. So “things” are going to be posted, just not general updates. Unless of course something extraordinary happens, like if I break a leg or something like that. You know.

So, enough of my rambling. Now I’m off to watch Doctor Who. Mmm, David Tennant, yum. ♥

(And yes, I am aware I’m abusing the word “just” and commas.)

Alright, time for the real update!

Like I've said, the trip to the Åland Islands was fine. The house we rented was brilliant, the view was spectacular and it was all around lovely. My only complaints were the colony of screaming kids we had for neighbours and the fact that there was nothing to do. True torment for a spoilt middle-class brat, right? (Internet didn't work, do you hear me, it didn't work! D:)

But it was very nice, anyways. I and mum spent the evenings having Yatzee tournaments while listening to the Dire Straits albums I had lugged about with me.

Also – since we had no TV channels worth watching – I devoured the first season of Torchwood, which dad had been so kind and generous to take with him. ♥

Well, "first season" might be to push it – I just watched the first twelve episodes, since I'm a spoiler-whore of distinction and have figured that I need ep 2x01 at hand as well to be able to handle the season finale. Also, I want that Jack/Ianto kiss, dammit!
Short ranting behind cut. )

So, naturally, this leads me to this question: are there any on my f-list who are Torchwood fans as well? I know [ profile] littlemissgg is (which is partly the reason why I gave the series a try) but I do believe I've seen other rant/squee/mention/talk about it as well.

Oh, and while we're on updates, I might as well mention two things happening in my real life:
  • I'm starting school 20/8! \o/ New school, new class and new classmates, thank god. Now my peers will be about 16-20 years old instead of 12-15. THANK HEAVEN.

  • This summer I was supposed to take a few guitar lessons. I have, it was unbelievably fun, and I'm going to continue having lessons once a week this autumn! ♥ (Mum is currently jumping for joy that I'm finally getting a "real" hobby activity.)

And... I think that's that for today?

Well. As you know, I've been rather absent for quite a while now. The reason for that is because the last few months (from Christmas to, well, now, to be exact) have been a bit rocky for me, emotionally.

I don't know how many of you that know this, but I've remained in ninth form due to missing about three years of school. First I spent most of third year, half of fourth year and half of fifth year at home due to my body collapsing because of all my allergies, and thus also looking like an anorexia victim. Then I was absent as good as whole eighth year because I was clinically depressed. So. Anyhow, I had a few things to catch up on, naturally.

However, next term I'll change school (again -- this'll be my sixth one, I think) and it'll be a huge change, since I'm transferring to upper secondary school. You see, the school system in Sweden is divided into two different comprehensive schools: the nine-year school and the three-year long upper secondary school. Nine-year school is divided into three sub-groups: the junior level for kids age 7-9, the intermediate level for age 10-11, and the senior level for age 12-15 -- don't ask me why the intermediate level only has two years. Anyhow, then, when you start the upper secondary school, you get to choose which subjects you want emphasis on. There are over twenty different options now, I think. I won't bore you with even more details, but in short, it's a big difference to the nine-year school-

Whoa. Info-dump, huh? Well, what I want to say is that there's a bloody humongous change is in front of me, and it's turning me into a nervous wreck. That and add a state of semi-hibernation and Anna is a very unsocial creature. But now spring is here, with its much longed-for sunlight and Swedish spring-craziness, so I'm starting to feel much better. ♥

Oh, and it's also my birthday tomorrow. That might help things as well. *g* I'll be seventeen, and thus legally allowed everywhere to read NC-17 rated fics. Hurrah! ♥ I can finally admit to reading porn and not worry about people freaking out. Well, at least no more than they already are.

You see how much I ramble? I clearly need to be more social.

Oh, and recs, because I can:

Five R/S fics. )

So, how are you, everyone? ♥

My dad flew to the U.S. this morning. He'll be gone for ten days. That's... the longest he's been away from me. Ever.

And now for something completely different: remember that I flailed and whined about my new pills? Well, turns out they sort of works. This week has been... Well, eventful.

List! )

... How did I ever manage that? The new pills must indeed be working. Also, my sleeping issues finally went away. Fancy that.

Also, on an entirely different note, Christmas is coming up. Alright, so it's still a month and a half away, but still. I need time to make presents for my f-list. *g* So; what would you want? A ficlet or a drawing? Feel free to leave a prompt! ♥

Lastly, I've got myself a new icon! \o/ Yes, again. Just look how pretty it is!

It's true, isn't it? Just so you know, this is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to R/S fiction -- together with the epithets "boyfriend" and "lover" as well as unrealistic first-times (anal without proper preparation + overabundance of "I love you"s and endearments = uuuuuhh... No thanks).

Waaaah. I can't be quiet any longer; I've been home sick for the last two days (fatigue-cold + horrible PMS/period = blarghity x100) and I have had far too little social interaction. So I need to vent.

Cut to save your f-lists. )

Oh, and the main reason I'm feeling so annoyingly cheerful? The Daily Prophet mentioned me!

Excerpt from The Daily Prophet; Term 12, Issue 3:
Next, we have a piece from Anna ([ profile] anna_bm) of Ravenclaw, with what may be her best work yet (you can see the constant improvement!):

[The drawing in question]

It's Remus Lupin, fresh out of Hogwarts and into the 70's! Anna herself admits that the clothes don't scream 1970, but who would argue with a fedora-topped, sports-jacketed, smoking Lupin? This piece is called The Graduate, and it definitely sums up a fresh Hogwarts Graduate's emotions: determined, steadfast, and independent. Remus' rigid, straight pose definitely shows these three characteristics, yet the distant look on his face may seem to tell that there is a hopeful future ahead of him. Though young, Remus' face has been tainted by the numerous scars he obtains from his "furry little problem", and Anna's portrait didn't fail to show this important detail. The colors are rather well-done, and the blending of the colored pencils was done with much care. All in all, it's an amazing work of fan-art, and Ravenclaw house should rejoice to have yet another prodigious fanartist on the loose!

Yes, I'm just a little overjoyed with this. Hell, I'm half-crying and have several happiness-induced aches all over my body which only proves how pathetic I am. Sod not dragging mum and dad into fandom; they've got to see this! Weeheee~! <3

PS. Sorry for the squee-ness and bad language in this entry. When I'm not quite as muddle-headed and high, I'll be back with a more coherent and bearable entry. Until then, hope you are well!
