We moved! Still in AZ, but now in Glendale. I have a room! We have a pool! I also have a horrific sunburn. I just started taking Zoloft a few weeks ago (holy shit, it's amazing how much that has helped me) and did not realize photosensitivity was a side effect, so I went swimming for two hours on Sunday and today is the first day I've been able to wear a shirt since without cringing.

My forehead, nose, cheeks, and from the elbows up was all lobster red and is currently peeling. And, JFC, the amount of times I have slammed my arms into the doorways since getting this burn is unbelievable. White as I am (and I am PALE lately) I have never burned from less than around 12 hours in a pool before. So I totally thought two would be fine, and I was only a tiny bit pink near my nose when I got out. Then three hours later I was a lobster.

We also have cable now (Cox) instead of satellite and every single thing I watch is now on three hours later because AZ sucks.

I still have no job. I have insurance, though? And unemployment. I kind of got fired at a great time, though, because I've been able to help take care of Ma and go to her doctor's appointments with her, and even though I worked at home before I couldn't go to appointments except for when she could get them scheduled on Wednesdays.

I started a mainline of The West Wing, and I'm up to 2.16 so far. I loooooooooooooove it. So, in about ten years I'll probably watch The Social Netowkr finally too.

I have actually gotten, like. Really into makeup. Really really. I know, lose your job and then find something expensive to like, right? But I totally have learned how to pinch pennies and the magics of things like online surveys and ebates (holy shit, if you shop online you need this place, it is totally legit and I've made $20 from shopping). Also, not hesitating to return anything that doesn't work for me. Doesn't matter if it's .99 or $60, if I don't love it, I take it back.

Also, I made a giant OCD spreadsheet that is an itemized inventory of everything makeup that I own. Because, hi, me.

Fandom-wise, I am totally still in Supernatural (though, holy shit, S9, what. Just what.), I watch Teen Wolf (as Tumblr says: Jeff Fucking Davis is a gift I'd like to return), and I live on Twitter more than anything else.

And now, a meme!

10 (fandom) Facts About Me
Just list 10 facts about fandom/ships/characters/kinks/headcanons whatever you like!

1. I joined fandom when I was 12. I'm 28 now, so I have spent more than half my life (16 years) in fandom.

2. The first ep of Teen Wolf I watched live was the S2 finale, and the first ep of SPN I watched live was Route 66.

3. I skim the sex in fic most of the time. Sometimes I'll read it, but for the most part once it starts I skim and pick up when it's over. This is probably a big part of why I get annoyed at fics where the ending is that the two characters have sex. I feel short-changed.

4. I cannot and will not read fic with drug use. I can't. I hate when there is random pot in a scene in a fic and that usually makes me make Ugh faces at it. The last time I said something like this I got defriended y a lot of people, but right now I don't care. It doesn't trigger me in the way you think of when people say "trigger" but it comes awfully close.

5. I love mpreg. I do. IDEK what it is. I used to kind of like it, and then I like it in a weird shameful way (mostly because LBR, good mpreg is hard to find) but when the mpreg is good it is SO GOOD and I am totally fine with you guys judging me.

6. I also love easter eggs in RPF. I love reading J2 and spotting one-off and background characters. I play that "MATT BOMER! FBDKS IT'S JASON MOMOA!!!" game where I flail all over like when I catch Aldis in a rerun of Bones.

7. Parallel AUs, too. Where you change the main setting but you can still see it poking through? GIVE THEM TO MEEEEEEEEEEEE.

8. I'll go through phases where I don't want to read anything but MCU Avengers genfic or Tim/Kon or something else weirdly specific that isn't a primary fandom of mine.

9. 90-95% of the shirts I own are fannish tees. One is Sherlock, one is Teen Wolf, and basically everything else is Supernatural or DC.

10. I love bottom!Sam like air and I will never stop being sad that fandom by and large prefer bottom!Dean and incredibly toppy top!Sam.

HI THAR. LONG TIME NO SPEAK. Here's what you missed: I got new glasses! And lost 17.6 pounds since February 13th of last year. Technically, I lost way more than that at one point, but then had a really bad downswing, mood-wise in October and it decided to stay until basically January. But I'm starting new again! I'm marking down all my food I eat and making a conscious effort not to eat when I'm bored or not actually hungry. I am super looking forward to being able to buy clothes without crying. I think I did that once. It was nice.

I work for a satellite company now! And have since May! (JFC, really? It's been that log?) I am tech support, and if you want to see me rant about how much I hate people you can follow me on Twitter, because I fucking hate people. There is a reason I.T. people are always angry and annoyed in TV/movies. IT'S BECAUSE OF PEOPLE WHO CALL ME FOR HELP, AND THEN TELL ME I'M WRONG. BITCH, WHICH ONE OF US GETS PAID TO DO THIS SHIT AND WHICH ONE ADMITTED DEFEAT AND CALLED FOR HELP?

Also, Supernatural is back, and has been for a while, and I still LOVE IT. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but it's mine and I want to dress it in frilly clothes and make it have sex with it's brother. Or something. )

While we're talking about me not posting shit ever: how the fuck did I only write two fics last year? )

BUT! That brings me to my next point! I'm aiming for at least one posted fic every month this year. One done, so far! I might even have two this month, possibly.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang! I signed up for it again, and I have a fic idea already (that will hopefully stick), and an awesome title possibly, and I might actually attempt to write the worst summary possible this year, because that's what I get when I try to write a good one, so if I aim specifically for bad I might stumble into perfection. There will be a Flocked post about this after this one, because, duh.

In addition to living on Twitter, I also live on Tumblr now, despite fucking HATING it. And then I had a rant about Teen Wolf, which I like for some reason. )

ALSO! THERE WAS [livejournal.com profile] wincon! WIIIIIIIIINCOOOOOOOOOON! IT WAS AWESOME, AND I LOVED IT, AND I AM NOW ONE OF THE CO-CHAIRS OF PROGRAMMING! GO SUBMIT A PANEL, YOU GUYS! This year we're in VEGAS and it's going to be so fucking amazing I don't even know where to start. Actually, it's so fucking awesome that I will make a separate flailing post about it later.

Also, in my absence I have done ALL THE ART EVER. It was not easy, and the Mona Lisa was cranky. I have become [livejournal.com profile] unavoidedcrisis's Dedicated Pinch-Hitter for her eleventy-five Big Bangs she runs, and have four arts I'm doing for [livejournal.com profile] apocalypsebang alone. I'm very excited, and also very worried, because, obviously. Ugh, I am stressing myself out just thinking about it right now, even though there's no reason to. On the plus side, each of the arts and the steps in the process are gonna average out to another level or two in GetYeDone. What, you ask, is GetYeDone? I AM SO HAPPY TO TELL YOU!

This site is basically the best thing ever. It's a To Do List site that lets you level up and earn EXP, which, man, is fucking awesome if you're as competitive as I am. The site itself is still brand new, and the party system is still under development, but you guys should all go join, add me over there, and then comment here with your name so I can add back when the parties go live. I'm Clex the Indecisive over there, shockingly.

In case anyone was wondering, I spent the entire Superbowl writing this, am counting it as a Boss Fight because I have put this off for literally an entire month, and am happy that the Ravens won.
