!!!!!!!!! *KEYSMASH*

omg.

OMG.

ADAM'S ALBUM SNIPPETS WERE RELEASED THIS MORNING. AND YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE HOW HARD I WAS FREAKING OUT TRYING TO GET MY COMPUTER TO DL THEM SO I COULD LISTEN BEFORE WE STARTED. And I still ended up listening to the last half of the snippets while class was starting anyway. lulz.

However. I am so totally in love.
Music Again is awesome. Strut has the coolest beat evar. Sure Fire Winners and If I Had You are sooo catchy. Fever is fun and def feels Gaga-infused (imo). I looooove Sleepwalker and Aftermath. AND OMG BROKEN OPEN IS GOING TO MAKE ME CRY LIKE A BABY.

In conclusion:

TIME FOR PANCAKES

*flails gleefully*

I get to play with power tools at the lab tomorrow. Finally getting things moving for the experiment I am running. It's gonna be fun times. :D

I ran a lab all on my own today. IT'S ALMOST LIKE I'M A BIG KID NOW. Apparently I did okay and we got done really early (um.. i hope that was okay) so people were like, yay! Now I just need to finish my damn proposal.

I should stop pretending there is any content in this post, I just wanted to flail at my new icon.

cuz i know this flame isn't dying. so nothing can stop me from trying.

These past few days have basically been total days of flail if I ignore the crap I posted about in my last entry. I woke up this morningafternoon to a twitter alert from the ADAM_SIGNAL account that Time for Miracles had "leaked". It went on sale on the Italian iTunes page. So I basically flailed my way out of bed to listen to it. Pretty much crying the whole time because the song is beautiful.. and I was just like a state of, omgomgomgomgnewmusicomg. And then I guess some Lady Gaga stuff got leaked. And yesterday we found out that Adam is on the cover of Nov's Details mag, has a one page deal in InStyle and is going to be on the cover of Out. Plus the Elle December issue with Kris and Allison. And my weird magazine collection will continue!

Anyway. Someone got ahold of Details and the interview is a lot of fun. And the pictures aesthetically are beautiful, but the comm is already exploding with "omg what does it mean?" as we all try to figure out what the intent was behind having Adam pose with a naked model. I am personally torn I think. I think I need a physical copy and not lens-flared pictures before I can decide.

I just did a massive clean of my room because I realized that my desk was a mess and I had one of those "omg i need to clean or i am going to have a mental breakdown" moments. So I took advantage of this new organization to take some pictures of the place. I promised pics, so look under the cut!

maybe it's time for miracles )

Also I have been staring at this Idol gif.



How on earth did he get away with blatantly eye-sexing the camera on the show? Like really?

Writer's Block: Most memorable concert

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Hello topic I can ramble about forever. I've been to... 6 concerts in my life on my own. 3 of them were the American Idol concert. I'm not sure what that says about me. Ozzfest when SOAD and Disturbed were there with Jacob. Panic at the Disco and Paramore with Justin. The Idols alone, alone.. and with people from the internet. (lulz don't follow my example kids). All were special in their own way really. Ozzfest I got to see 2 bands I really really enjoy and probably will never see again live. Panic was just fun even if they are *totally* my scene. Paramore was the first concert I ever attempted to take lots of pictures at a concert and it was fun bouncing around. And then. you know my Idol experiences recently. Perhaps the best part of those was meeting so many awesome people and for once... not being so closed away from social experiences that I let myself meet them. I think personally that's my biggest achievement. I don't talk to people that easily.

Hey.. look at me not really answering the question! I think for now... front row at the final show of Idol was the most magical though. I am ruined for all other concerts really. Except maybe for when I pay a million dollars for good Adam tickets and my brain explodes from the sheer amounts of awesome and sex on stage. *cough*

Anyway. 11:20pm. Totally just rolled out of bed like 20 min ago. I have a lot of homework to do today, but I think I will procrastinate and go shopping for food, a calculator and a venti pumpkin spice latte. Priorities. I has them.

Also... Daughtry singing Poker Face.. acoustic?! My mind is blown.

unf unf unf

Upon inspection of my userpics.. I don't have a really good SEXY icon. Adam singing and pointing suggestively is the closest it gets.

Anyway! Today was the longest day in the history of days. We had a lab that STARTED at 8am. And since I am the TA I had to be there really early to set everything up. And then my advisor/the professor did not show up till like 8:30 so I got to try and fudge my way through explaining a lab that I only half-understand. All this on no coffee and not enough sleep. Then we spent like 3 hours climbing around on rocks in the full sun, which I was not prepared for. The lab was really fun. I practically went swimming while we were trying to set the laser level. Yay up to my knees in water! Then I fell down a lot. Like.. a lot. Apparently it was my day. The end result was that by 11:30 when we went in.. I was gross and practically falling asleep on my feet. So I went home to shower before my second lab of the day, this time as a student. Somewhere in there, I tried not to drown in my lunch and barely managed to make it. *woe*

Oh a different note though, my advisor TOTALLY watches.. or at least watched.. anime. you DO NOT UNDERSTAND the levels of flail here. We talked about anime club during my interview and I cited it as like.. the #1 reason that I am confident in myself now.. and really just the one thing I love best about UCONN. Then today he made a comment about my Neko-sama shoelaces during lab and he was talking about how I tried to explain anime to my roommate. And he was like, "oh yea I was explaining it to her too and I think we should watch Spirited Away or something when I get my projector. It's a perfect gateway anime". And I'm like "omgomgomg". Then he said he used to watch Robotech. GUYS MY ADVISOR WATCHES ANIME. I DONT NEED TO BE THAT AWKWARD PERSON WHO WATCHES CARTOONS AND GETS WEIRD LOOKS FROM PEOPLE FOR IT.

Then I got home and passed out for like 2 hours on my bed with the lights on. So my head has been feeling a bit fuzzy all night. I am excited though because tomorrow I am going into the city to meet my mom and get my paycheck. Then we're having movie night here at the apt. Saturday is the clambake. Sunday we're going apple picking if the weather cooperates. I NEED TO STUDY OMG WHEN AM I GONNA DO THAT?!

Anyway, I caught up with [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek a bit tonight. There havent really been any new Adam pics (omg please let there be a PR storm starting on Monday) so I needed a fix of pretty. And oh man, it delivered.

AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

This is the post I'm going to be making to ontd_ai in a bit. I don't wanna do it now cuz the anon post went up about half an hour ago so people will be busy there. Plus I need to test it to make sure it's not gonna break things. (so the tone might be a bit odd since it was written for posting to a public comm.

So... I went to the Manchester show. It was all sorts of epic (although stressful at a few points). But first I need to thank [livejournal.com profile] mylittlehottie for hooking me up with the amazing ticket and letting me flail and scream and generally act insane with her. Also many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] herquiethands + sister for be-friending me in Providence and being my patient car buddies for this show. :D

JSYK, I was sitting in pod B, row AA. The seat right at the corner closest to the front of the stage. TONS OF PICS UNDER THE CUT OMG

best. night. ever. )

As an added aside. i totally didn't post even half of my pictures.
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v83/starsparkle/idol/MANCHESTER/?start=all
There's the whole album. Feel free to use them for whatever. Photobucket kinda borked the quality a bit so if you have a burning desire for the original size of any of them.. just let me know. They're 4000 x 3000 originally...

But oh my gosh I am so glad I went ahead with this crazy plan. So much stuff happened that I don't even have the words for it. I am so sad it is over and I need to find videos of the night so I can re-watch over and over. Don't Stop Believing was.. epic. They were having so much FUN on stage the whole night.

I got some amaaaaazing pictures from my seat. During the finale, a bunch of stuff (things that had been thrown on stage throughout the tour) fell from the ceiling and I managed to grab a feather boa. I wore it all the way home and there are feathers all over my car and things now. But OMG.

Ahhh I am incoherent. I really need to focus on trying to catch my second wind, we have an outdoor lab today and it's supercold and windy.

Just found out that my advisor is leaving work at 3:30pm. This means that I can leave as soon as I hear from the other girls to confirm that they're on the T to Wonderland. This means we might even get there before 5:30!!!! And how totally awesome is that?! It means I might be able to get over to the bar where the rest of the ontd_ai crew is meeting up before the show!

quick update between papers

I am so sorry, I'm sure you are all like "oh god SHUT UP about Idol", but....

OH MY GOD THE CONCERT LAST NIGHT WAS AMAAAAAAAZING.

My new camera is apparently the sex because even at like 13x zoom, I got some great pictures. There will be a full review later with pictures and thoughts on the second viewing. Highlights included getting a pic with Sarver, eating lunch with a pair of sisters from the Philippines and Adam coming out to sign (no autograph for me.. but.. he was so close oh god).

AND I AM DOING IT ALL OVER AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT FOR THE FINAL SHOW. Someone on the comm had a FRONT ROW ticket (they had two, only needed one). I AM GOING TO BE IN THE GODDAMN FRONT ROW. *IMPLODES*

So yes, pictures and review tonight. More twitter spam tomorrow night. *FLAAAAAIL*

(someone stop me, this is getting out of hand)

ps- later this week I need to do some ZQ/Pine/Urban picspam to make up for the lack of balance lately.

2009-09-11 10:21 am

in the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

Apparently morning is my ideal time for updating this. Procrastination = win?

So I bought that ticket from the Providence show. 12th row on the floor, at the front right section. Now I need to find a Best Buy on the way to Providence so I can buy a digital camera that can actually take good pics. I'm thinking that Monday/Tuesday I'm going to stalk ticketmaster a bit to see if I can pick up a ticket for the final show. It's... 2 hours-ish to Manchester NH from here.. so I could theoretically leave here at 5 and get there in time for the start of the show. (christ I am such a fangirl. fangirls with a bit of extra money are a dangerous thing). I just... I want it to be my epic official end of the summer I guess. Before I really start with hardcore school and can't take the time away to be a dork and flail.

Watched the episode of Glee last night on hulu. OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW. Just... "lady justice wept today", celibacy club, "all by myself", I just... no words. I haven't been this excited about a show that's showing on tv at the moment in a while. Hopefully I'll be able to watch it on tv, but if not, it is being posted on Hulu. Yay internets!

This weekend is the open house at the marine center. I am... not sure if I'm "required" to be here. My advisor has told me nothing and I get the sense that it's kinda encouraged. *sigh* I didn't sign up as a volunteer to run any activities or anything. I kinda wanna go into the city to hang out with Phil, but part of me is like... I need to be involved. Especially since I'm the only person in my lab currently so I don't have anyone to bond with right away. Makes me glad my office-mate is my roommate as well.

Yeah... about that reading. I got the first reading for my Molecular Ecology class... and it's... a lot of pages. Basically the first chapter of a book. I'm glad we don't have to buy a textbook, but oh god pages. Thirty of them. *headdesk* Someone smack me.
fiarra: ([baru] bunny. stars)
2009-09-10 09:56 am

and thus it begins...

So. Here I am. In my office. With a pile of papers.

Oh god so many papers.

Yesterday was my first full day here at the lab. I know that logically, 9am is NOT that early. In fact, by most normal job standards, that is kinda late. My schedule is still stabilizing though... and I'm still sleeping kinda weird. I think it's because I am used to sleeping under my sheets and comforter, even in the summer, because of the A/C at my parent's house. But we don't keep the A/C on at our apartment, so it's too warm to sleep under everything. It's throwing me off.

Anyway, lab. Showed up shortly after 9. Talked to Matt. Got a pile of papers. Then I checked my email a lot. xD I am easily distracted while paper reading, have never been very good at it really. It's not that I'm not interested, it's just that papers are all really dense. And in general my attention is easily diverted. I will go through hours on end where I will sit and read intently... but it takes a special day to get there. (or a deadline lol). So now I have a stack about 10 papers high (average paper is 12-15 pages?) in front of me. I'm going to try and get through.... 2 today.

I have my syllabus for the class I am TAing. Also have one for one of my classes. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I feel very.. unprepared for teaching in general. And it's intimidating looking at the 3Cs students and being like, oh they all are my age... and probably know more straight marine stuff than me. *deep breath*

Anyway. Apartment is awesome. (we had a watermelon "incident" last night. I will not be eating watermelon... for a while I think). I took pictures while driving to the lab yesterday morning, so I will try to post those tonight for you all to be jealous of where I get to work. =P Apartment pics... still coming. I need to figure out how I'm going to hang my poster frames.. plus I need to buy another couple for some smaller things. Also I don't own a hammer? How silly.

I took a couple NOH8 style pictures for a project over on [livejournal.com profile] ontd_ai. I am going to try and post a few of my faves on here too. If you have me friended on facebook, you've already seen one of them. :D It was fun, even if it took a while to wash the marker off my face afterwards. lol.

omg providence american idol show is this weekend. I keep getting this one floor ticket to pop up on ticket master, but it's 12th row way over on the right of the first section. Which is.. not ideal. *sigh*

Okay back to reading.....

the saga continues

*clings to the library again* And this time I'm on my laptop and can actually save things. Oh sweet joy.

Never got a call back from the landlord last night about the plumber. Talked to him this morning, apparently the guy is going to come today? And I'm like, blah I'm gonna be in the city all day. Whatevs. So long as the damn thing gets fixed and we can move on with our lives.

Roommate arrived last night. Things are good. Although she was definitely a little, "wha?" at the lack of contact between the old and new students. I honestly haven't heard anything from anyone except that I need to be at this training the next 2 days. So hopefully I can pick out the other marine bio students in that room and make some connections. Also realized last night that I have forgotten ALL of the bags I own that are not backpacks and can fit a notebook. So today I get to take a small bag and carry my notebook around. Figures. I'm thinking I need to drive home on Sat to get this stuff because I need a smaller bag and I'm going to be a mess in a few weeks if I don't have a hairbrush. lol.

In less OMG REAL LIFE news... Adam's CD was announced "officially" (well.. via his twitter) to be released Nov 24th. And aaaahhh I know where my money is going over those few weeks. Kris and Star Trek the 17th... Adam the 24th. *flails*

Hrm... my laptop is not showing me my battery bar. Does this mean it's going to suddenly yell at me then turn off while I watch helplessly? Most likely. *woe*

ps- It occurred to me as I woke up at 9am this morning that this is what sleeping in is going to feel like. And then I was sad. Normal people hours. DO NOT WANT.

let's talk hope

I don't know how many of you pay attention to my mad American Idol inspired ramblings. I know pretty much all of you are not involved in the fandom side of things for it at least.

However I want to bring your attention to something very important. A few weeks ago, Adam Lambert sent out a call for his fans. A call to not spend money on presents for him (like inflatable kangaroos, idk) and to instead give it to children. Children who without help would probably never be able to play a musical instrument. Children who need gluesticks and colored pencils to draw.

Through DonorsChoose, a charity effort has been set up in his name. A contest of sorts between fangroups, but a contest that only helps those in need. :)

This video says it better than I can.


So f-list.

Please watch it. Think on it. And consider giving.
http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/viewChallenge.html?id=22856&category=107

It's for a good cause, it's tax-deductible. And honestly, it's giving me more reasons to smile these days when I look at those numbers.

2009-08-26 11:49 pm

oh goodness

Somewhere north of Boston there is an apartment. One that has my last name on the mailbox and my belongings within it. I am... really flaily about this right now.

Yesterday my family and I moved all my large things up there. Had to pick up the UHaul at 7am and then load up everything. Somewhere around the 5th box of books was like, wtf when did I buy so much manga. I need to inventory it really well when I unpack those boxes. So I know. We moved everything up there and I got into a few arguments with my parents over the rooms. See.. one is smaller than the other. But I decided I want the smaller room for myself.. and my parents thought I was being stupid. And at a certain point I was just like, JFC I have to live here so stop it! I have a large room here.. and I honestly don't even use all of it. I am always at my desk.. or sleeping in my bed. There is no need for a massive room. Plus this one is at the back of the house and therefore quieter.

After some unpacking, we drove off to Ikea and I bought a sexy desk, awesome chair and a small bookshelf. Followed directly by getting me a new mattress. <3 Then it was back to the apartment to build things.

I don't have any pictures yet (it'll wait till things are fully organized) but I love the feeling I get from the place already. My room and bathroom just feel so uniquely... mine. I picked out all the stuff for the bathroom and there is a this half-glass faced cabinet in there that I am keeping all my stuff. And it's really just awesome. I can't wait till my books are out on the shelf, my stuff is on my desk and my posters on the walls. I get a good feeling about it.

That being said, it was the longest day ever. Woke up at 6:30am and we didn't get home till nearly 1am! D: And tomorrow I have an appointment at the car garage at 7am for a full-check. And since I will have to walk home after dropping it off... I am going to be very tired tomorrow.

I am unsure about the denting on my car. My brother was all "I should save up for a car!!" (fat chance of that, he can't save for his life) and I just looked at him and said "You should save up to fix MY car". And he like... got mad at me. And got this really panicked and angry look on his face. And I was so close to being all like, "fuck no bitch you are paying to get my car fixed". But y'know.. dinnertable... parents.. etc. *sigh*

I was listening to some pre-idol Adam in the car on the way back last night (totally not news at all lol) and was thinking about AMV potentials...
AMV rambling )
