I hope everyone and their loved ones have been well. It's been ages since I logged in and, if I am being honest, I'm not making any plans to be around a lot. The only sure thing I know of is that I'll be back next December, lol. There are just too many things I want to settle offline first.

Dear the person I made a gift to but unable to message:

I hope things are working out for you and that you're doing what you always dreamed of doing. May you have a successful 2016!

Happy new year everyone!

Being forced to spend days without internet was greatly beneficial to my media knowledge. Also was the opportunity to watch TV without having to fight for the remote. Here are thoughts on some of the stuff I watched this summer.

I had one cup of milk. One hot cup of milk without Lactaid, because I thought I didn't need it since it was burning hot.

Well.

Lesson learned. I ain't skipping on the Lactaid next time.

Apple.

WHY? Why did you change the entire GUI with the last system update? I don't want iCloud or iMessage or FaceTime right now, please don't sign me in on them DURING AN OS UPDATE. Ugh.

DNW.

Seriously. No. Just... No.

I've been refreshing my French the last few months and I just realized the reason for it - I signed up for an online object-oriented JAVA course, in French, that started in February. That I completely forgot about. That has homework due soon.

Welp.

Goals

[personal profile] anonymouslyyours reminded me that I should remember how it felt to be at work last year to make it the future I'm looking forward to. I can't remember that feeling anymore for various reasons. I guess the next best thing is to make a goal for myself. Haven't done that for a few years since things happened so I do need a new one, something more concrete than [graduate] and [get a job].

It's so hard to think about what I want to do instead of what I can do. I want to have fun at work, working in different tasks instead of doing the same tasks over and over again. I want to learn new things every day instead of relying on the same old skills. I want to solve puzzles and find solutions to problems.

That's why I want to be an engineer working in research and development. Not biochemistry because biology and chemistry were my weaker science subjects and the pharmaceutical industry holds no interest for me. No, I want to work with advanced maths and physics. Computers and radio waves. Telecommunications. I want a job at Bose Corp or Sony or IBM.

I'm gonna do it. Believe it.

(That said, nanotech is so enticing. SO ENTICING. I was never accepted for nanotech - deferred to electronic instead - and there are not that many jobs for pure nanotech graduates. It's mostly a pipe dream but if I'm going to be doing graduate school for anything, this will be one of the reasons for it.)

Firefox just crashed again.

Closing about a thousand tagbs should help.

/Holiday project #001

Edit: you know you've been spending too much time on tumblr when you typo tabs as tags.

Chip/Gaston (from Disney's Beauty and the Beast) crack pairing. Oh boy.

I have a headache.

Come home around 7. Mom looked at me and said, "you look like shit." Well no duh, it's time for blood sacrifices again.

I need to quit tumblr while I am ahead. Between Misha and Tom Hiddleston, I can't. Also, it'll be nice to avoid Thor 2 spoilers.

And I don't even watch Supernatural.


Note to self: actually make them secrets and submit 'em this time.

Summer is over and so is my job! But it also means I'm back in school. And I'm covering a job for a friend that requires me to leave the house at 5am. The short of it is, I'll continue to be scarce on internet interactions until December at the earliest.

I miss talking to y'all though! And I'm procrastinating. So... I made a general fannish tumblr and facebook profile in anticipation of the upcoming Thor movie and so I can keep in touch better with some of you.

I don't know what I want to do with the accounts yet. I'll just follow people and see where I end up. :)

I suck.

Accidentally burned myself at work again - I've been spending most of my days soldering and this is the largest burn to date. How did it happen? I'm not sure. I somehow burned the outer side of my right arm while holding the iron with my right hand.

I'm a goddamn ninja. -_-


I haven't been around for a while now, sorry. Work is eating up most of my energy. I hope y'all are doing great and having a good time!
agentcthulhu: knitted yellow-green cthulhu in black suit and sunglasses (Default)
One of my favorites, anyway. I want a house hippo! >:O

I'm at a friend's right now and I'm probably not going to be online for a few days again. Anyway, this is my favorite Dragon Cave lineage. Take a look and find out why I like it so much! http://dragcave.net/lineage/qMTAL

Welp. Didn't have time to post stuff again this weekend. Sorry guys.

Remember how I complained about internet speeds three months ago? The upgrade is here!



I'll likely be AFK again for the next few days. Have fun and see y'all in a few!

Hey homies, how's it going? I kind of feel awful calling myself an F!S regular seeing how "irregularly" I've been online these days. So, here's what's been happening chez agentc:

  • I lived on tylenol and cold medication for a week! It wasn't fun.
  • But reading Tom Hiddleston's tweets made me smile a lot. I thereby declare twhiddleston to be the cure for cold-induced blues!
  • My computer keeps crashing and my internet keeps going down. In fact, internet went down again yesterday and I gave up diagnosing the stupid thing when it kept going down every two minutes. I spent this morning playing around with routers and so far, things *seem* to be settling down. Fingers (and tentacles) crossed!
  • I'm picking up German and French again. German because I'm tired of looking at side-to-side translations and thinking, gosh darn it of course word x in German is y in English! Why didn't I realize that? D: And French because people around me are learning French and I need to be on alert to answer questions (and to make sure they are not swearing behind mah back XD).
  • Which means I'm momentarily dropping Japanese again. Sorry [personal profile] cloud_riven!
  • I got a soursop for my birthday! I'd never had one before and I was really excited to eat it! But it wasn't ripe so I put it in soup instead. Maybe next time.
  • Saw a hot guy and a hot gal at the grocery store! The guy looked like Sean Connery but had hair like the most interesting man in the world, except they guy's hair and beard were all white and his mustache and eyebrows were gray. The girl had the prettiest straight long hair and tight tight jeans showing off her long long legs. I wanted to jump them. It was totally embarrassing >:/
  • Oh! Also, I started playing Dragon Cave and Vdex Project to get myself to stop playing Freecell. I figured since the stuff I can do on there are limited, they won't be as much of a time sink as Freecell (and F!S). I did really really well until last night when the internet died right after I finished with Vdex Project but before I could queue up some AO3 oneshots for bedtime reading. I made it to almost a month of no Freecell so I'm pretty happy with that.

    That's all for now. Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it and happy weekend for the ones who don't!

    ETA: I thought about getting a tumblr blog again, but then I realized I really shouldn't since the only things I'd be blogging are reblogs from lokismonstercrotch.

    Thanks for reading. Have some music!

    Just ate a really bad combination of foods. Now my tongue and gums feel raw and it's painful to move my tongue. Like, really painful.

    This is just as about stupid as the time I forgot there was a cupcake in my bag and because it was the winter break, I didn't empty my bag for weeks. When I did remember, it was horrible.

    Sharply horrible.

    Moldily horrible.

    That was probably one of the reasons why I was sick again late December.

    I hope this bad combo of foods won't have any lasting ill effects. :/

    Edit: just realized - brushing mah teeth tonight will be hell. FML.

    Clint Barton: God of Sex by beren.

    This is the best Clint/Loki I've ever read. Seriously. It's good. No hate!sex or noncon, just straight up good old fucking-with-willing-parners (with a reason, of course). 8,500 words of hot non-plotwhatplot fun. Scarring Stark is the cherry on top.

    Wow, has it really been five weeks since I last posted something? Welp, I suck. You know what else sucks? Our phone/internet line. This is how fast my internet is right now:

    Click me to test your internet speed at www.speedtest.net

    Even though it's slower than 52% of all of Canada, it is 48% better than the rest of the country! Isn't that nice?

    /sarcasm

    This is as fast as it gets. When it is actually working, that is. The line is a bundled DSL phone/internet service so when the phone line dies, the internet dies too and vice versa. For example, yesterday the phone line died in the middle of a call (FUCK YOU) and it took five minutes to load a 5000 word fic on AO3. It did the dropping call shit again today though the line didn't die this time. I won't be surprised if the internet goes out again in few hours.

    (Can't change the internet/phone provider for another couple of months because of the contract reasons. Yeah...)

    My laptop also died a few weeks ago. The power jack needs to be replaced and I don't even know where the hell to get the right part. The hard drive should be perfectly fine, I just need to copy the documents over. The one thing I don't have is my bookmarks. I need to figure out how to add the bookmarks from that computer via documents and settings to this one (a temperamental backup) without replacing the bookmarks here. Since I can't exactly export the bookmarks from the dead laptop without power and I can't turn on this computer using the drive from the dead computer - this computer refuses to load Windows from the other computer because the other hard drive isn't using this computer's company's master boot record...

    Sigh.

    I'm just glad things aren't worse.
