Well let’s see… it’s really been September since my last life update, other than pics of my house after the fire, and since I had a request for “how things are going” I figured it was time for an update.

My mom has been in the hospital since September the 18th. She has undergone numerous surgeries, one extremely major one, and is finally (we think) on the road to recovery. She is getting one of the two wound vacs she has removed today. We expect her to be moved to rehab sometime next week. She will be on a feeding tube until sometime after Christmas, probably the first of the year. There has been a lot, and I do mean A LOT of prayer, going on for my mom and I believe this is one of the reasons she is finally on the mend.

Now onto our house. Insurance is taking care of the rebuild since we have a replacement policy. If you or your parents don’t know much about your policy/coverage I highly recommend looking into it. Replacement means that insurance has to replace things for the amount they were at the time they were bought, not what they were worth at the time whatever something happened. Insurance had hired this one company to do the rebuild but this company doesn’t pay overtime. The boys got paid from the time they left Louisville to when they got to us, usually 2.5 hours later…which is crazy because it only takes about 45 min to an hour to get to Louisville from us, so they must have stopped somewhere along the way. They would work about an hour and then take 1.5 hours for lunch, work a couple of hours more and then head back to Louisville to be back by 5pm. This… was not working to say the least. It took them 3 weeks just to frame the garage! Something that should only take a day.

So the big boss man came, saw their progress (or lack thereof) and hired an independent guy to come in to do the work. This guy has brought a camper for he and his boys to stay in during the week and they work from sunup to sundown, though they had lights on last night and were still working when I got home from work around 9:30. They got the roof completely off a couple of days ago so hopefully it won’t take as long for these guys to make progress.

Work, lovely, lovely work. Please note my sarcasm. Usually, I enjoy my job. I don’t love it because I hate teaching but I do love the paycheck… Last night was not a good night. Tuesdays and Thursdays are my longest days out of the week. I get to work around 9:00, teach class at 9:30, might have a meeting or two from 11:00-12:00, teach class at 2:30, and then host study tables from 6:30-8:30. Well, last night we moved my study table location so that we would all, with the exception of one other PSL, be centralized. They didn’t give us keys to the house we were in so around 7:45 we had to call one of the supervisors who lives close to come lock the place up so we could leave. He said to call him about 15 min before we were ready to leave but we called early, just to give him a heads up. Study tables are over, as I mentioned, at 8:30. Since we called at 7:45 that gave him 45 min to finish whatever he was doing at home and get there. At 8:30 he was not there, 8:40 not there, 8:50 still not there, and by 9:00 we were pissed. Not to mention he wouldn’t answer our phone calls or texts. So we tried calling other supervisors, who also would not answer their phones. The campus police basically told us that we weren’t on campus anymore so… tough luck. I finally got ahold of the secretary to works for my boss and she told us to just close the house up and she would come in a few to lock up. So that’s what we did. Just one of the joys of working for this campus/program.


This is the same job that I had over the summer so I knew going into it how much work was involved. But… given that the fall semester is longer than that of the summer you pretty much have to double the workload. I have 4 reports due a week, plus lesson planning, making assignments, and posting helpful things that my students probably don’t even use. It’s very time consuming and by the time Thursday rolls around I’m exhausted. I usually leave myself open to sub on Fridays, since I don’t teach on Fridays, but since September I have only gotten one half day of subbing in because I have just been too tired…

My tiredness has been my excuse for not writing more, plus a fair amount of writers block. I’ve really wanted to work on this Jasper/Seth multi-chapter I’ve been planning but I believe my notebook with my notes for it was packed up and put in storage by the cleaning company that cleaned our house out after the fire. I also want to finish A Couple Takes Two by the end of the year. I don’t know if this will happen or not, we’ll see. 40 some pages in I finally got to the consensual sex and writers block hits with a vengeance. I’m trying my damnest not to force it because then it will suck, so I’ve just been writing four or five lines here and there, just to say I’ve done something.

So… there’s my life in a nutshell right now. I’m off now to be productive and run tons of errands!

When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of that movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home.

-The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton

I don't know what it is about this line... there's just something so powerful about it that hits me right in the gut.

You know what? I love being prompted for drabbles. Since I'm always saying to my friends "Prompt Me!" I decided to make this post.

This is your chance.

Give me a fandom (the one's I write for/have written for are listed in my tags), a pairing (also in the tags) and a prompt (a word or sentence) and I will do my best to write you an amazing drabble.

I think I would be a total hypocrite if I said I hate fanfiction being as I read and write it with a passion. I simply adore fanfiction. I love finding the loopholes in the plot that allows fanfiction. I get really excited when author's support fanfiction.

If to do nothing more than play spider solitaire on, yes. I try to not work on homework while on vacation unless it's something really pressing. Normally I can leech off some other random person's wireless connection to get on the internet.

I can read "Hawke's Harbor" by S.E. Hinton, finish it and then immediately start it over again. I never get tired of the story. I feel closer to the character's, especially Jamie's each time I read it.

My fave sandwich is a toss up.

If I'm going out it's a footlong grilled chicken breast with extra American cheese on Italian bread from Subway. If I'm staying home it's a bologna sandwich with KRAFT singles on white bread.

Haha... irony... I told my friend's that one of the kid's I'm babysitting tonight has a dance competition tomorrow therefore not allowing me to spend "girl's day" with them. She doesn't have a dance competition tomorrow, we're going out to eat and to a book store.

I don't know if they understand my need for alone time or not... I just do it.

The animal that best represents my inner spirit is a wolf. I am a solitary person but enjoy the comfort of my pack mates. I like making sure that those I care about are okay, if they aren't then teeth will be bared and fur will fly. I would be the beta of the pack because I am comfortable as second in command.

If I had to wake up as any animal it would be a wolf. I would love to have that experience. Yes, my answers are the same.

I am dying to see Boys Like Girls in concert and I actually am!!!!! :DDDDD >.> Sorry went fangirl for a moment.

I'm totally in love with this band. When I found out they were performing in Louisville at Expo 5 for only $25 a ticket I just had to go. I have ordered my ticket and am just waiting for it to arrive. I can't wait ^_^

Prisoner of Azkaban hands down. The characters and that point in the time line are just great.

Songs & Goodbyes

In high school the boy I had had a crush on since 4th grade told me I was "so loud" within a day I went from being "so loud" to barely talking. Whether or not he ever noticed I have no idea. My other friends noticed and expressed concern but now that I look back I see this as just another stepping stone on the path to the person I am meant to be.

Chris, even though you will never read this and we will prolly never speak again, I want to say two things to you. 1. "Fuck you." 2. "Thank you."

Started?: [livejournal.com profile] koslorollo & [livejournal.com profile] propertyofwyatt the most. I'd have to say that I comment on their journals, stories and such more than anyone else on LJ. They are very fun to talk to.

Renewed?: [livejournal.com profile] aubreys_master & [livejournal.com profile] khellamendra. I feel that I have become closer to Aubrey through her journals, even though we talk nearly everyday on AIM. Khell doesn't post much but I find out interesting little tidbits about her through her random postings.

Known the longest: [livejournal.com profile] aubreys_master & [livejournal.com profile] khellamendra. I have known Aubrey for almost six years I believe. We original met on ff.net when I commented on one of her older anime stories and it just went downhill from there :P She's one of my best friends. Khell I met on AA, which I joined in 2004. She was a sub-admin and as I became more active I got to talking to her little bit by little bit. We talk on AIM randomly, usually when I have a question about something but those convos can turn into quite interesting topics now and then. Khell enjoys getting my panties in a twist XD

I love my LJ peeps ^_^

I prefer to text. I have a fear of talking to people I don't know on the phone and I don't really like to talk to people I do know. I would much rather text.

Answer: The "Avari" are a branch of elves created by J.R.R. Tolkien in his Lord of the Rings and it's prequels universe.

More Avari info )

"Maethor" is Sindarin, a form of Elvish language, that means "warrior".

When the two are put together it means "dark warrior".

When I created this account I was...am still... obsessed with Lord of the Rings. I had found a story on ff.net and was amazed by the author's version of the "Avari". This name was inspired by that.

This is very difficult... I collect quotes and have a huge collection of them so it's hard to choose just one. Let's see... will just choose one at random.

#1466 on my list:

“I had a sneaking suspicion that time was not constant, but I guess I could never prove it. I suppose it didn’t really matter. I even had a theory that time didn’t go in straight line at all. I knew I was no Albert Einstein, but I had the sneaking suspicion that everything had happened, was happening, or would happen was really happening all the time. There was no past, present, and future. Everything was going on all at once and forever. If that was true, then each moment was eternity.” –The Summer of my Discontent Mark A. Roeder, pg. 181

I've always wanted wings but that's not really a superpower... hmmm. I guess it would have to be flight then, mind reading after that and teleportation after that. I'd have black wings to fly with, I'd be a cool bald dude who can read minds and blue and fuzzy if I could teleport.

Props to anyone who gets me references.
