Today I was miserable and anxious for hours going through GRE-ish stuff and freaking out about how much I have to do for applications. Then I talked to eltea and listened to some crappy pop music and felt better. Then I posted a fic. Then I clipped a corner walking around my house, which doesn't quite count as running into a wall but is close.

This pretty much sums up my entire life in one day. XD

I think my mom's finally processed the fact that I feel cripplingly overwhelmed, however, because she's gone from "You only have a week left; to stop being lazy and do it" to "You've already done all the hard work; it's just a couple more things!"

So tonight I'm going to try to sign up to take the stupid GRE and then the English subject test, and then I'm going to make a distinct effort to stay up until I've written my personal statement. Because hell, I stay up writing fic all the time, and it's the only time I get any of that done.

idk, I knew how to sit down and work for stuff I wanted when I was in high school -- as in, the last time I had to string together applications and all that crap -- but these days, I just want to go curl up in a ball in the corner and pretend that I'm not about to consign myself to an even more difficult future.

O WOES and so on. XD

The fic is Saint Sirius at metamorfic_moon, and it's a tiny bit epic. XD

Like, the "Sirius sets up Remus and Tonks in a Voldemort-less AU, and hijinks ensue" kind of tiny bit epic. XD


Holy craaaaaaap, man. I loved that show so much. The episode in the castle was just like... the coolest thing in my little nineties child world. *_____*

I still know pretty much the entire song. My brother and I were singing it the other day. Just because. XD

Yeah, I... don't know. I give up. XD

Lmao. Corners are evil little critters, aren't they? XD I've whacked myself into them a couple of times... >____>

XD Personal statement stuff sucks. I think...homework and school stuff is easiest done the same time fic gets done; at night. So good luck with it, bb! :) *hugs*

And omg Sirius fic! 8D

I think they might jump out sometimes. XD

Thank you! I... managed not to get shit done yesterday, but I actually started it this morning, /small miracle. XDD *hugs* :3

Just do it!

(Remember that Nike commercial? Maybe you don't, but it was quite inspiring in its time, especially their written ad campaign. However, here's a little something that cracks me up... supposedly banned from the campaign, but I dunno. Your inspiration for the day: Homework: Just Do It!. Although I'm aware it's not homework you're doing. And if that doesn't help, here's one for when you're sick of it all and need a break: Bollocks!.)

The night is for writing when you're in college. Take advantage of your vampiric hours that breed the best in you. Do hope you accomplished all you wished to.

*sends motivational vibes your way*

I remember just do it commercials! XD Have never seen the homework one, though -- amazing!! XD I definitely bookmarked that one to watch when I'm feeling unmotivated, haha. XD

Thank you! :3

According to the Nostalgia Critic, the Ducktales theme song is the #1 catchiest nostalgic theme song of all time. IT WILL NEVER LEAVE YOUR BRAAAIIINNN

How funny! XD Though I dunno, the "Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers" song has always been worse for me. XD

Though it makes me happy every time I get the DT theme stuck in my head, so I won't be complaining about that! XD

Ah, poor pretty tierfal is overwhelmed. I wish I could offer more condolences, but all I can of is: That really, really sucks. D:

Hope things get a little better. And, of course, anything you write is bound to be epic.

Obviously. :-)

I LOVE DUCKTALES! No kidding, there was a band that occasionally played at my highschool that played the Ducktales Theme. I fangirled them because of it, just a little bit. ;)

I would've fangirled like CRAZY. I know I almost died of joy when an a cappella group performing at the overnight stay program I went to at my school did the Pokemon theme. XDD

Sure -- I've got a twenty-page academic paper to write, a four-hour test to take, a three-hour one two weeks later, a personal statement to write, a statement of academic purpose to write, and twelve applications to fill out.

Give or take. XD

My mom is a super-pro nagger. She does so much stuff without complaining that I can't even really justify my own laziness. Which is a pity, really.

It certainly doesn't hurt. ^^

I just love it when the official school bullshit piles up so much that you almost don't give a damn about the education part anymore. Or maybe that's just my reaction. The financial aid office has been pretty much auditing my whole family and cheating me out of money any way they can. >_<;; So, definitely not in the same vein as your mountains of paperwork and tests, but still le suckage. *curls up in the corner too*

(But I have a sneaking suspicion that you'll wow everyone, including yourself, with the results of all those applications and tests. So don't give up! ^_^)
Vitamin C: Jethrotierfal on August 18th, 2009 10:02 pm (UTC)
Exactly! D: It gets to be so much that I almost just want to give up. @_@

And ajklfjds, the financial aid stuff is even more bullshitty than what I have to deal with, srs. x_x

(...aww, pff. Thank you, darling! ^^;)
