Why do I always forget how much I love Howl until I listen to it? I mean, I always kind of think "gee whiz, I love Empires!" and then I kind of... forget? Of course, there are a couple of songs that I listen to basically every day (namely "Under the Bright Lights" and "Haley" and "I Want Blood") but still! /o\ Now I am listening to it and I'm blown away all over again. Sean's voice is... quite possibly the best thing in the world. 

Some recs!

nobody's looking for a puppeteer in today's wintry economic climate by [livejournal.com profile] battleofhydaspe . I read Empires fic! Well, one fic. And now I'm wondering, WHERE IS ALL THE REST OF IT? Perhaps it exists and I am just so faily that I haven't noticed? Sadly, this is very plausible. The point is I read this last night. It's Sean/Tom (hello new OTP, come on in and out your feet up) and it's kind of ridiculously great. They're just two guys and it's just a normal night, but it's so well-written that everything about it is special. Yeah, just read it. I suck at explaining.

flying into the sun by [livejournal.com profile] stealstheashes . Ryan/Spencer  An incredible universe in which everyone has wings until they lose they're virginty... I mean, what more do you need? My favorite aspect of this fic was THE WINGS the relationship Ryan and Spencer had, fragile but at the same time they were always RyanandSpencer, even when they weren't talking. Also, Brendon. He doesn't show up very much, but when he does it's gold.

So! I have done my good deed for the day by encouraging you to read about sexy times and wings and love and shit. Now, food! I went to the dentist this morning and my mouth hurt too much to eat anything all day. Essentially, I haven't eaten in 14 hours and I kind of want to hit somebody. My mouth feels less ow ow omg ow, so I'm going to give it the old college try. *crosses fingers* In other tooth-related news, my wisdom teeth come out in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I'm looking forward to drooling for 2 days straight, and my face swelling up. I also appreciate the fact that they give your teeth back to you. Nothing says Get Well Soon! like a baggie full of gunk and molars. \o/
I feel so disoriented right now. This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I've been awake for the better part of 24 hours. And I have a SHITLOAD of work. There's no getting out of it though, I'll just ave to suck it up. 

I have internet! Yay! Now, if you could all stop being so awesome on it, maybe I could lead a normal life. Wait, that makes me sound like a crazy lady who doesn't ever leave the house. Except maybe to buy catfood. I don't even own a cat, just so you know. I like to think that I'm a perfectly (well, relatively really) normal young lady. What the rest of the world thinks? Who really cares? God, writing such bull should not be allowed.

I am incredibly jealous of everyone who got to see empires. I LOVE empires, guys, it just took me a while to give them a chance. But now? I would give anything to see them live. See anyone live, really. Why won't you come to South Africa, boys? It would be awesome! You actually have a fanbase here, so it wouldn't be weird or anything. I was actually surprised at how many My Chem fans there are here. Sadly, I have yet to meet anyone (save my sister) who evens knows who The Academy Is... and Cobra Starship ARE. How can you NOT know?! Their lives have yet to be enriched by Gabe's tallness and William's prettiness and the short shorts and hater blockers and truly awful colour combinations. 

My body aches today. This may have something to do with the fact that I walked about 12 kms today. Stupid bank. I managed to get my bank situation sorted out (meaning I got a new card just in time for someone to present me with my wallet and my old card), but I had to go 3 times. In one day. It's not far people. And it was hot today. *is whiny* Ok, all done.

Song of the day: Under The Bright Lights by empires. Yeah, I kow my fangirlishness is getting annoying but they deserve it. And more.

ETA: Guuuuuuyyyyys! I need the cab. Seriously, I can't get it here. I keep hearing about how awesome they are and I've heard Vegas Skies (which is fantastic), but that's it. Please, anyone?
So I have a Control of Financial Information systems project due tomorrow. I should probably finish it. It's kind of hard when there are so many awesome primers and  blogs and things floating around the interweb. STOP BEING AWESOME PEOPLE. 

I am so fucking happy today. I don't know what it is (Howl might have something to do with it), but I like it. I love it. I was walking around campus, smiling like an idiot. I feel... you know when your diving into a body of water, but it's a long way down? That second before you hit the surface? Yeah. That's me right now. 

Ha, could I be more emo? ;)

Life is short and life is good and we have to make the most of it. It's taken me a long time to come to that realisation; I spent a lot of time hiding. Wish I could get those years back, you know? But it's ok, I still have the ones coming up to enjoy. I just... I don't want anything bad to happen. Not before I've had my chance.

I hope you all have more fun things to do tonight than assignments on the business risks pose by HIV/AIDS. 
Kisses y'all!
Y'all, it's only 6.15 (AM!!) and I've been up for an hour. On the plus sound, I woke up to Motion City Soundtrack's "The Future Freaks Me Out", one of my new favorite songs. It's just so happy- you can't not bounce around when it's on.

Speaking of music: EMPIRES! [profile] t_usual_suspect is my favorite because she informed my behind-the-times ass that the cd was put up for download by the darling boys themselves here. Download it if you haven't already: they have such a great sound, not too pop-y but not so edgy that they're music makes you feel a bit sad. Because as much as I love Brand New and The Used? Most of their songs make me feel sad. 

That's one of the best things about music though, there's a song for every occasion. Sad, happy, peaceful, plain pissed off, lonely, energetic.... each of these can have their own soundtrack!

Anyway, back to work!
Sigh, my sister says that a lot. And despite that, I still miss her. I'm a saint, y/y?

I FINALLY saw The Dark Night! It lived up to all my expectations, and then some. I'm way too tired to write anything spoilerish, but YOU GUYS: Heath Ledger. Was. Fucking. Incredible. All that stuff about a posthumous Oscar is totally believeable; he was the best (worst?) villain EVER. In case my excessive caps aren't enough of a clue: GO SEE IT NOW.

Today was a pretty fun day, I met some new people (hi Natalie! HI!) and had some nice girly talk with my new friend Deanna... Weird, since I sent a lot of time thinking that I was all alone and destined to die a hermit. I suspect that I might have been isolating myself. Just a bit.

One thing: I feel very still. As if... hmm, trying to find the right words. As if the whole world is standing still, and I'm the only one moving. But not in a bad way, it's actually kind of nice. I just had a couple of smokes while listening to my Sad Playlist (it seemed appropriate for my current mood). This is about the time I would start cutting. I didn't though, I didn't even want to. *high fives self* I don't know, sometimes I still think about it, and the temptation to do it comes back. It's scary. But I haven't in a long time and I'm planning on keeping it that way.

Flist, please tell me someone has some Empires that they want to upload for me? I haven't been able to find it anywhere, and I've been hearing such great things about it. So..... *bats eyelashes* It would be greatly appreciated.

One MORE thing (yeah, I know this is a really random collection of ideas, just how my mind works), I think I'm going to stop locking my posts. I have nothing to hide; I refuse to be ashamed about my emotions. Sure sometimes I whine pathetically, but so the fuck what? Everyone has ups and downs, and I'm tired of pretending I'm perfect.

Kisses to you all, hope you guys have a great night! (mine will be filled with the Control of Financial Information Systems. Gripping stuff.)
