this is war

I really want a pet that isn’t just this fish tank

hermit crabs are cute and all

bearded dragons are super adorable but mom wouldn’t stand for it

sigh

Just saw that message from earlier where you said you want more people to talk Star Wars with, I'm pretty much always willing to talk Star Wars. There are plenty of the books I haven't read but I love talking about stuff I have gone through. Currently going through Legacy of the Force series for basically the first time. I had read through Sacrifice a few years back but decided I would restart the series and finish it now.

Ohhhh boy. I was spoiled for Sacrifice when it came out (which was a week before high school graduation), but it still broke my heart. And when you get to Invincible… well, I still haven’t stopped crying over it.

I just finished re-reading the New Jedi Order, and it honestly did hold up well. I need to do my LOTF re-read next. At some point…

fill in the blanks
basics

1. name: Rocky
2. birthday: Sept 22
3. favorite colour: purple?
4. lucky number: 13
5. height: 5’4”

talents

1. last dream you remember: Hm. Haven’t had one I remembered in a while.
2. can you juggle: Not even a little.
3. art/sports/both: So does art cover performing arts? If not, sports.
4. do you like writing: go look up my enormous ‘rocky writes fic’ tag. perhaps I like writing a little too much.
5. do you like dancing: You don’t have to be good at dancing to like it. I especially like dancing at goth clubs where no one cares if you can’t dance.
6. do you like singing: Yes! 

fantasize

1. dream vacation: Grand Tour of the European cities, kind of like 
3. dream guy/gal: a fellow weird nerd who wants to talk all night about fandom, politics, random science stuff, and have awesome sex. 
4. dream wedding: So despite being really damn single, I’m one of those girls who knows how I want to get married. I want a winter wedding in a nice place by the ocean. 
5. dream pet: cats! and an iguana.
6. dream job: I like the sound of ‘Rocky, General Manager.’ Trust me, there aren’t enough women in upper management in car dealerships, and I’m aiming straight for that glass ceiling. But if money weren’t a concern? I wanna be Indiana Jones.

1. favorite song: Right now? “This Is War,” 30 Seconds to Mars.
2. favorite album: Carolus Rex, Sabaton.
3. favorite artist: Three way tie. Nightwish, Rhapsody of Fire, Sabaton.
4. last song you heard on the radio: I don’t recall, mostly because I don’t pay attention to the work radio unless it’s something particularly good.
5. least favorite song: "Roar," Katy Perry. I want to like the song, but then I heard it half a billion times.
6. least favorite album: A lot of the twangier country. The sound is hard for me to really like.
7. least favorite artist: same.

preferences

1. guys/girls/both: More inclined towards girls, but I don’t think I can rule anyone out based on the gender boxes.
2. hair colour: I love red hair.
3. eye color: no preference.
4. humorous/serious: Knowing how serious I often am, humorous is probably better. But I love fellow serious people.

7. biggest turn-on: Bondage, dominance, satin sheets, good kissers.

Like the other anon, if I were near you, I would show you the time of your life and then do my best to blow your mind for a night. Maybe another night. Maybe a few more after that.

THANK YOU someone else who doesn’t really get Supernatural, seriously
(and at some point I’m going to write a blog post about why I’m just not super into Boba Fett because there are lots of much cooler mandos)

Why don't you have a geology job anymore?

Anonymous

So, I was working as a field geologist in Oklahoma on the oil rigs. My actual geology background was mostly vertebrate paleontology, though mining geology was a close second. Problem: both of those fields require at least a master’s, PhD preferred. Money was kind of an issue, and I wasn’t in a great mental place at the end of college and didn’t know what I was going to do with my life.

I ran off to Oklahoma and took the job in the oil fields. Honestly, it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I’m horrible at sedimentary geology and couldn’t deal with working 12-hour days for 2-3 weeks at a time, no days off. Some days, I was paid to watch tv, others I barely had time to eat. And OSHA violations everywhere, and often being the only woman on a rig, and how I’m a hippie liberal Yankee. Ugh.

So yeah, I left the job. I’m not super interested in going back into geology just because I’m reluctant to go back to school unless either there’s a guaranteed job at the end and/or someone else is paying for it. But if the money and stars aligned, we could talk about mining geology. Of course, mining isn’t that much in demand in the US nowadays. Sigh.

oh wait, my samsung is still under warranty. and I sold a car to the manager of the store I bought it from.

tomorrow may include a trip to best buy.

It’s still sort of surreal to see the billboards come up and you start to see the trailers playing and you say, ‘Wow, it’s actually happening.’ But a year and a half ago when I first got cast, I was certainly informed of how big it was gonna be so I’ve had that time to think about it, but yeah you still double-take at billboards and go, ‘What the hell is that?!’

adventures of WoW on my old mac: holy shit, the graphics are amazing! much better than on my newer pc.

where are my addons. what do you mean I don’t have mogit on this computer. screen tiny. but keyboard way nicer and trackpad not spawn of the devil. mouse lagging a bit.

honestly, when this mac is due for replacement next spring, I’m tempted to trade in both it and my samsung and get a nice 15” macbook pro, one of the ones with the nice graphics card and retina display

guys this super cute black girl came in my store with big, beautiful, natural hair and she was showing off her new red dress and i told her “you look so beautiful, just like annie!” and she and her mom didn’t know about the new movie coming out so i showed her the trailer and she said “mommy she looks just like me!” and her smile was so fucking huge

don’t tell me representation isn’t important

and then half the keyboard on my samsung laptop died and it’s not because the under-keys are dirty.

sigh.

will be on WoW on my old macbook.
