The swelling's gone down on my foot some but it seems to be complaining more about my sitting up today than yesterday (weird), so I'm despairing about the amount of writing I may be able to get done today, but I wanted to I wanted to comment on one of the dreams I had last night. I went to bed at 2, got up at one because my grandmother was getting worried and had a bunch of oddly entertaining dreams (most of my dreams are uncomfortable and/or flat out bizarre). Like always, I don't remember much, except that they felt like thriller/actions movies and in one plotline there was there groups of assorted sets of clones and one group decided to rebel and take over the world, but the rest didn't, so the evil clones started killing the good clones and one of the close sets looked like Milo. There was an angsty scene where one of Milo clones told the other to get away and save himself before being killed and later the clone that escaped was all weepy and despairing because his fellow clone was dead and he had no idea how to fight these evil forces. That's pretty much what I can remember. Some part of me thinks there might be a story somewhere in that (like I need yet another idea right now).

I haven't done that since... Well, I don't think I've done one ever. I'm so disorganized. It's amazing how writing my ideas down has calmed me down about the whole thing, instead of having them run wild in my head driving me insane. Why had I never done this before?

Watched The Duchess today, which made me sad and reminded me of my novel. Why must I always go for the angst?

I started revising one of my Plaude fics last night, but images of Milo from the latest Heroes ep kept distracting me and taking me to my happy place. It's not my fault! I'm weak! He's pretty! What's a poor girl to do?
I can't stop laughing. You know that kinda desperate laugh that you can't tell at first if the person is laughing or crying and then a huge guffaw rings out? That's what I've got right now. It won't stop! I think I just feel so overwhelmed. I can almost see the finish line. The only thing missing from the first draft is the concussion (I swear I wrote that down without meaning to, but it seems to fit) conclusion. I'm 300 words into that (handwritten). I already sent the rest to my dad for proofreading. The finish line is right there. I can feel it in my bones, literally. They all hurt. A lot. I can't sit down for more than an hour anymore. My right arm keeps screaming at me, I've got carpal tunnel like whoa, my knees and ankles hate me, and my right shoulder blade feels like burning. Classic symptoms of essay writing. I'm betting that at least half of my course mates are feeling the same way right now.

La la la! I so totally need a vacation.

This thesis keeps making me think of FMA. I've come this close from writing "equivalent exchange" I don't know how many times now.

And of course, to aid my concentration problems in this time of trial,this is the sight I'm subjected to every time I turn to my right: )

ETA: I just realized I used a nearly identical subject line three days ago. Thesis writing is not healthy, I tell ya.

I think I'm developing weird, new PMS symptons, for I woke up exhausted, I've had craps all day and my stomach hurts. Ow. Stupid body.

To cheer myself up, I'm watching LOTR and geeking out all over the place. I love this universe so much. I might start reading fnafic any minute now.

Another thing that cheers me up: more pretty Milo )

I watched Terminator. It was fun. Paper thin story and I had no idea what was going on half the time since I haven't seen any of the Terminators, but fun.

I like driving. But Puerto Rican style driving, not suburban Illinois toe the line kind of driving that very literally was putting me to sleep one time, and that freaked me out. Miles and miles of straight roads is not fun. There's no thrill. I am so not a thrill seeker at all, but while driving is when I let loose. I'm going to miss that.

Why do I keep seeing people saying that Milo doesn't look 32? He definitely looks it to me. It's like Johnny Deep. That's what 40-odd people look like in my family.

The Brazilian government apologized for torturing farmers? Brazil?! The lot that pardoned itself for over a decade of human rights violations? Weeeird. Then again, it's not the same government, but... Oh, no I am not looking at Brazilian politics now. Didn't I not like politics?

And with a hat: )
“My whole life has been spent engaged with friends in intellectual debate - like whether Kirk is tougher than Spock or if Middle Earth is a more difficult place to live than Tatooine.
--the awesomeness that is Milo V.

Now see. Why can't this be the type of intellectual debate that I'll have to deal with in my exams? Why? I'd get such a better grade if they were on Middle Earth history rather than human rights, which is a little sad, but screw it.

Apparently diVide Pictures is going to a web series where they discuss such erudite fandom points such as who would win in a fight. Gandalf or Darth Vader. Which is silly because no way would a puny, little human who is only kept alive by machines ever have any hope of beating Gandalf. I mean, come on. Force or not, Maia! And a mighty powerful one at that. I think you can see which side I'm on in the LOTR vs. Star Wars debate, which is one I don't like to get into because it just runs around in circles and ultimately Tolkienverse has the most powerful villain anyway, so why bother? I'm a diehard Tolkienite and damn proud of it. *grin*

ETA: LJ has ads? Since when? I don't notice because of my lovely Adblocker thing, courtesy of Firefox. *hugs Forefox* That wasn't supposed to sound like an ad, but oh well.

Physically. My thighs are aching something fierce. Is it all the sitting? The lying on my stomach to read a heavy textbook? Descending the stupid stairs at the library? I bet it's all those things. Like I keep saying, studying too much is not good for your body. Why can't I do the kind of studying that involves getting out and physically doing something? It's so nice outside. The sky hasn't been cloudy for a week, it's actually sunny, and the parks are brimming with people. and here I am, sitting inside with a book in my lap. Though thankfully, due to my stubborn reluctance to do any hardcore studying two weeks before any of the exams, one of those books was a novel. Which I finished today. Which I wasn't supposed to do. But I wanted to. So there. Not that I haven't been studying. I already know more about Chile, Argentina, and Venezuela than I did two days ago. Never mind that this is the stuff that I supposed to know already. The class bored me, okay? I can't help but doze off and think of smut when I'm bored. I think I'm having a better time now because I'm skipping anything remotely theoretical (the prof said theory wouldn't be the focus) plus any other details that we wouldn't even have time to write down in the hour we have per question anyway. So no panic. Panic at this stage would be ridiculous, though I think other people are feeling it, especially since they started revising since god knows when. I got looks of shock when I admitted that I didn't begin myself until this Wednesday. Wait, that was yesterday. I only started yesterday?! Then why the hell am I so tired already? It must be all that photocopying for the thesis. Oh god, this is not good.

Nevertheless, I'll attempt to find solace in one of my favorite Al Swearengen lines: "In life, you have to do a lot of things you don't fuckin want to do. Many times, that's what the fuck life is, one vile, fucking task after another. But don't get aggravated. Then the enemy has you by the short hair."

Oh Deadwood. Out of all the shows that have gotten cancelled on me, that's the one I miss the most.

Three and a half weeks before I head back home (PR). I might be a little less incredibly eager if I had time to travel around here a bit now, but exams aren't the type of thing that'd cheer me up. I wrote yesterday. More than I've written in a month. That helped. It's not smut, sadly enough. It's odd. I want to write smut, yet the muse doesn't seem interested.

New Milo pics, though. It looks like season 1 hair, too. Good stuff. The icon I'm using is from one of them.

I think I'll go to the Tate Britain this weekend. I need to do something that doesn't involve the library.
Went to bed at 3, an hour past my bedtime, woke up at 8:30 and knew I wasn't going to fall back to sleep. Yet I don't feel sleepy, just tired. And even though I feel tired, I have this weird energy.

I had a presentation today and managed to not have my heart thumping the whole time. I skipped half the stuff I was going to say, like I always do, but I had my personal experience to fall back on, so it was cool. It always gives you an extra cred to talk about elections you actually witness versus just read about in a book (the 2000 Mexican elections, by the way).

Maybe it was becuase I was so brain dead this morning (still am, kinda), but when I saw the new Milo picture with his tiny, tiny hair (though it is longer in the front than in the back, but of course, that has to be one of the new fads that I don't like. And I know it's just me, but the shape of his face looks different. What is it about hair that changes my whole perception of people's faces? I do not understand myself). Anyway, that was followed by the Zachary Quinto GQ pictures. The first thought that flashed in my mind was, "Hair!" I've always found him hot anyway though I'm not a fangirl, but there was so much sheer joy in that thought. I crack myself up so much sometimes.

Watchmen today. *bounces* It will be the first time 've gone to the movies here ever. The student discount price at the nearest theatre is 8.50. *cries* The further away theatres are 10.50. *cries some more* I don't know what I'm going to do when the summer blockbuster come around. I'm seriously considering going back home after the degree just because everything is so expensive. There's no rent or internet to pay at my grandparents' house.
I'm two-thirds through a really depressing scene. I must finish this scene. But it's depressing! And I don't want to do depressing right now. My head is also this close from smashing against the keyboard because I am so sleepy. I've been yawning for hours now. Meanwhile I keep overanalyzing the latest Divide Social Club pictures trying to cling to some glimmer of hope that maybe Milo's hair isn't as dreadfully short as last time. But I'm probably fooling myself. Though I swear I see a partition in the second picture.

God, I need to sleep.

I'm finally reading Watchmen. Since I'm almost done with the essay, I went to Borders today (after sneaking into H&M to get some new plaid shirts; I can't resist the plaid) and read the first 5 chapters. I'm going to see if I can go again tomorrow, but the schedule's tight. I would have read more today, but I was really hungry. Damn stomach.

So it looks like Milo might have cut his hair short again )

I'm finally posting some of my icons. I don't know why I haven't done this before. These are all from Milo's latest photoshoot.

It's 1:47. I just got up 40 minutes ago, and I'm still half asleep. Therefore, this happened. I got on my flist and saw this pretty Milo pic )

But before that, whilst I was still lying in bed cursing the forces that tortured me by making me get up, an idea completely devoid of reason or sense popped into my head. And it became this )
