Life's been crazy. In good and bad ways. I'd say more, but I'm just too exhausted right now. The only reason I'm online right now and not sleeping is because I haven't finished my tea yet.

So here's a meme:

Look back at your entries for the year and take the first sentence of each month to sum it all up!


So my parents left about half an hour ago.


Rocky Horror was fun.


I think I'm finally starting to get stressed out about everything.


So I inadvertently locked the cat in the crawlspace all night because I didn't hear her go in, and didn't think to leave the door open anyway.


Life's been pretty quiet recently.


The Vancouver trip was awesome.


Mom came back a week ago.


I still find it rather amusing that less than a week before Dad came home, two of our appliances decided to stop working.


So my parents are gone now.


So the show last Thursday was awesome.


I'm so busy I should probably cry.


Omg, I think I have a date.

Yup. Interesting? My life revolves around school, complaining about my parents, and my friends, apparently.

In brief:
  • Still unemployed.
  • Jen's party (parties) were brilliant, but tiring. I was sober the whole time.
  • Sam won't talk to me, or even stay in the same room as me. Going to keep trying. I'm just a few months away from a real...audible connection. *blinks*
  • I got to talk to Clare. She's kind of cute, and has an accent, but I still feel like I don't know her at all.

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.


Soul searching - hrm. I didn't know I did this enough to have any comments on it. I'm intersted in myself. I want to know why I do what I do, and feel the way I feel. I want to know what my weaknesses are so I can fix them, or at least work around them in some way. I want to understand myself. And self accepance is always good, you know?

Gender - Well, I'm transgendered, so I'll never be able to take gender for granted. Or at least, I really hope I never will. It's been really interesting - since coming out to myself as trans - to see all the ways that gender and gender expectations are used in society. I also consider myself feminist, so there's that as well. Although I don't really write about that much. There are so many people who do that so much better than I can.

Big pants - It's all about the big pants! The Big Pants Dance is an (in)famous dance I did in drag once, and then again and again because apparently everyone loves it. And I'm a kind of slave to the audience that way. I detest practicing it, but performing it isn't so bad. Which is kind of how I feel about every dance number I've ever done.

Dancing - I love to dance. It's what I want to do when I'm feeling really happy, and to any song I really love, even if it doesn't seem like the kind of song you can dance to. I've been swing dancing for a few years now, which I'm really fond of and need to do more often. There are times I wish my parents hadn't put me in swimming lessons, and put me through dancing instead.

Rainbows! - Who doesn't love rainbows? They're colourful and cheerful and I'm always wearing at least one rainbow item. And my friends (*cough*Trevor*cough*) have this tendency to buy me more rainbow things a lot, so I'll never run out.

This is the meme where you post the first couple of sentences from your first entry every month for the entire year. I'm surprised more of these aren't about Fake Mustache. It's been a pretty good year, all things considered. And compared to last Christmas, this year is bliss.


In short... )We spent all night talking, pretty much. As usual. I didn't go to sleep until four in the morning. From the sounds of it, neither did James and Sara. haha. oh dear.

Yesterday was supposed to be roller skating with Tracy and co. It ended up being canceled due to the fact that the roller rink is closed on Tuesdays. Which was kind of sad, but we ended up having a pretty awesome time hanging out at North Hill Mall anyway. Scared a lot of the other people by talking loudly of orgies in closets and such. Yup. Good times. I love my friends.

Tracy and Red left at around eight to go pick up a tv or something. Emily and I then looked at each other and concluded that neither of us really wanted to go home, so we wandered around Coles for a while and then headed to the Hop 'n' Brew (or whatever it's called) for the ACAD post-semester party. There were some drunken assholes on the train that we laughed really hard at. Gods, they were idiots.

Drunken art students are...interesting. Em and I have decided that the Hop and Brew is a pretty neat pub and that we should go back and tip the blonde bartender more because she's just awesome. Got somewhat drunk and watched Em draw progessively more and more eyeliner all over her face. She ended up with drawn-on eyebrows and a Roy beard. At that point I think I confessed that I loved her a little bit and she blushed. It was really cute. xD And we've decided that we are just awesome, in general and toasted to ourselves.

I left at around eleven to get home and drink lots of water and fall asleep. I get to go Christmas shopping today, so I should figure out exactly what I'm getting everyone. I've got half of my presents for my friends already, and wrapped too. But everyone else I...dunno. I have no idea when I'm going to be seeing people, which complicates things.

And I kind of want to go play guitar hero.

In 2008, happy_fish_87 resolves to...
Pay for my birls on time.
Keep my x-men clean.
Volunteer to spend time with trees.
Give some colours to charity.
Give up painting.
Eat more comics.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Also, we handed in our ACAD200 project yesterday, and I had the final crit for PRNT today. Two out of three final projects are done. Completely. And I never have to think of them again. Well, I have to take pictures of my prints, which I may just do at home unless i can get someone who knows how to actually use a camera to take pictures of them (Lacy I will make you cookies if you feel up to it. Seriously, I totally will.) Fake Mustache was tonight, which I managed to survive thanks to excessive amounts of caffeine. I dragged (pun intended) Em to the show, her first since the spring, and it was totally awesome. I keep forgetting how well Em and I seem to click.
I get to sleep in tomorrow. It makes me rather happy. Then Chrysalis, where I get to cover myself in rainbow paint.

You know, it wasn't until I finished changing my mood theme that I realized it matches my default userpic. Both are Finding Nemo. Weird. Well, I suppose it all goes along with my username.
Decorated my house for Hallowe'en today. It was really exciting, although I don't think Brenda really understands. She is amused nonetheless, probably mostly about my enthusiasm for putting up poster-board sillouettes of bats everywhere and then going 'We're surrounded by bats! :D"
Also mowed the lawn and cleaned my room. Tomorrow I'm off to school to finish my silkscreening and go to ACAD200. Budgeting class. *dies* Thursday is the day of doom, but hopefully in a good way. I'm just hoping I don't get into too much trouble since my silkscreen isn't exactly perfect. I hate registration. I hate that I completely suck at it. It's really annoying, because I love the process of silkscreen and really enjoy doing it. *sigh* Oh well. Practice makes perfect, eh?

I can't wait for the show...xD

happyfish: (Picking nose)

1. What are your reasons for having a LJ?
I need a place to rant occasionally, and I type faster than I write. Also, the mindless memes are fun. And keeping up with my friends.

2. What do you do before bedtime?
Read, sometimes get a bath if I haven’t had a shower earlier in the day. Change into my PJs and collapse into bed.

3. What will your dream wedding be like?
Oh hell, I don’t know. I’m not planning on getting married anytime in the near future. Can you not ask questions about weddings three days before my brothers? Because at this moment I hate weddings with the firey passion of a thousand suns.

4. What is the city of your dreams and why?
I don’t know. I like Calgary, because I have my friends and my art and the weather is always interesting. I wouldn’t say it’s the city of my dreams, though.

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert. I can be extroverted at times, if I’m comfortable with you, but only sometimes.

6. Which is better, loving someone or being loved by someone?

7. Do you trust easily?
Yes and no.

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
Not tell them, and try not to be too obvious about it.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
ha. Let’s not go there.

10. What is your best quality?
I – don’t know. I’m a good friend? I guess. Definitely not my ability to say good things about myself. O.o

11. Is being tagged fun?
Sure, why not?

12. How do you see yourself?
Quiet, artistic, dorky, neurotic, funny.

13. Who are currently the most important people to you?
My friends.

14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
The two people I stole this from are wonderful, warm supportive friends that I don’t see enough of.

15. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
Single and rich, I think. Because that’s not saying that I’ll be single forever (certainly hope not) and I don’t want to have to fight over money.

16. How many children do you want to have, if any?

17. What's better, to give or to receive?
If I have a great gift idea, I love giving. Just because it’s awesome to see people’s faces.

18. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?

19. What would you do if you (or your girlfriend) became pregnant unexpectedly?
Put the child up for adoption. And go in for serious therapy, because I would need it.

20. What were your parents going to name you if you'd been born the opposite sex?
I’ve never actually asked.

happyfish: (i hug trees)

04. Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've only read 6 and force books upon them.

also added
05. Add a number in parens (2) for the number of attempts you made on books you just couldn't finish
06. Place a * next to the ones you hated
07. Place a C next to the ones you cheated on and read the Cliff Notes.
