So, a few things have happened since Korey and I celebrated our anniversary. Mostly good things. I did break up with my girlfriend, though. It just wasn't working out romantically anymore, there's no animosity between us. Aside from that, I've been busy with classes and with events and the like. My friend Rob had me and some other people over to marathon all 3 of the extended versions of the Lord of the Rings movies, which was fucking awesome. I made a new friend while I was there, too. Then, a couple weeks ago mom and Korey both came to visit and we all went to see Joshua Bell and the Cleveland Orchestra in concert. It was, of course, incredible. Then this weekend has been fucking great. There's an annual PRIDE film festival going on. I worked as an usher for it on Thursday and Friday night, which got me into the films free (not that it mattered since I also bought a pass) and a free shirt (which is extremely cool). Whoever designed the shirts is awesome because the deal is that it has the film festival's logo on the back, and the front is blank. At the festival, though, there was an iron on station where you could pick which icons you wanted. Mine has three bi icons in a diagonal line and it looks really cool. I made new friends at the festival, too. Also, unfortunately technical difficulties forced them to stop the movie before it was done, but the Swedish film Kyss Mig is extremely impressive. One of the main characters is actually bi and it's actually handled really well.

Last night was particularly interesting. First I went and got my hair done because it was a fucking disaster and my neck desperately needed shaved. I've been going to the hair salon in the union building, but they fucked up so badly last time that I said hell no and found a new place (though the union salon is closed on Saturdays anyway). I wandered into a nice little place by a couple bars and got a really fucking cute haircut that I love, and also on a whim put some color in it. It's a mixture of blue and violet that came out as this really sexy purple-ish dark blue. It's just a streak on the right side. This caused me to be 5 minutes late for the opera, but it was worth it. I was dressed for a rave while at the opera, also. The show was Xerxes, and it was excellent. Worth skipping yesterday's films at PRIDE for (I already had my Xerxes ticket way in advance). Also, both my night and the other nights' performer for Xerxes were actually women so I really couldn't unsee him as a butch lesbian. Oops. It didn't help that the woman he ends up with has super short hair for most of the opera.

After the opera I went straight back to the Buskirk-Chumley where the festival is for the dance party. It was so fun omfg. For one thing, I got to see Ali again for the first time since her class ended, and I hung out with her and her friends for most of the night. Also I kinda sorta made out with three different women. Oh yes. That was nice.

Oh also a couple things I'm late to mention:

1. This is my class schedule for this semester:
German: G150
Italian: FRIT-M 100
Finite matematics (shoot me in the face oh my god)

Then I have a Lord of the Rings linguistics class that doesn't start until the 2nd 8 weeks.

2. Korey and I found and leased an apartment. It's a 1 bedroom near the stadium and we can have my puppy. <3

Anyway, 30 Days of Me meme!

because I am a narcissist )

the rest of the days )

This is kind of overdue, but January 13th was Korey and my 1 year anniversary. We celebrated by going to Indianapolis and going to the art museum, Circle Center Mall, the Canal, Rocket Fizz candy shop, Castleton Mall, and the Rathskeller restaurant (this was over the course of 2 days), and then came back to Bloomington and went to Les Mis. He got me a German pfennig from 1875 and Pokemon Black 2, and I got him White 2.

Also, at Build-A-Bear in Castleton Mall, we were....utterly ridiculous.

The German shepard is his and it represents me, and the husky is mine and represents him. We use them as cuddling stand-ins. Also they both have voice chips in them that we recorded at the store of us saying I love you to each other. In German.

We're total saps but I wouldn't have it any other way <3

So Korey and I have nearly been together for a year. Our anniversary is January 13th. I never thought this relationship would turn out like this. When he asked me out and I said yes, I was thinking "hey, it may be fun, and it'd probably good to get more experience with relationships under my belt." I was expecting it to be over by the time I went to IU. But then somewhere along the line my feelings changed, and I'm so glad they did.

I love him. I'm so glad I met him. So glad I didn't say no or tell him I was a lesbian when he asked me out. So glad I gave him a chance. I'm glad he saw more in me at work than a frigid bitch that hated her life because lolMcDonald's. I've never been so happy in my life. So forgive me, DW/LJ, I just needed to flail.

Fuck all the Grinches and Scrooges of the world, I love Christmas and I'm feeling all giddy and Christmas-y at this point. I did in fact go Black Friday shopping this morning, though I will not disclose what all I got lest anyone who would care stumbles upon this post between now and Christmas. Though I will say I got a Slytherin shirt and a copy of Fellowship of the Ring on BD for myself. Between this trip and a small shopping trip on Monday I've gotten my mom, Katie, and a friend from IU taken care of, plus part of what I'm getting for Kendall and Korey. I still need to get the rest of what I plan to get for the significant others, then take care of my dad, the guy friends, and my other friend from IU. I decided I'm not getting Brooke anything. I'm going to get her a belated birthday/Christmas gift at ACen. I doubt if I'll see her over Christmas break, so yeah.

I'll need to find room for it once I get back to IU, but I got myself a mini Christmas tree <3 I'm excited for that and my string of lights. My dorm room needs to become Christmas-y.

I'm so proud of myself right now, too. As I'm typing this I have a couple pumpkin pies in the oven that I made. From scratch. Including the crusts. Awwww yeah.

What else have I been doing? I beat Fate/Extra and I'm back to playing Pokemon Conquest. I'll start either Phoenix Wright or Catherine next depending on how long Conquest takes me (see; if it's too close to a major break where I'll be at home without my PS3, that means I'm picking Phoenix Wright).

I went to my first fencing tournament ever last weekend. It was pretty awesome, and I actually managed to win a bout. Only one, but I still won it and I won it 5-0. The quidditch Midwest Cup was pretty great, too. We didn't do as well as we could've because we were short on players, but for what we had we did amazing.

In more ridiculous news, so uh. I went on a date with Korey and Kendall recently. Both of them. At once. To go see a musical about sexually frustrated German teens. It was rather fitting. But yes the Spring Awakening date went well. My boyfriend and my girlfriend are bros, there's no jealousy involved, etc, so it's all good. And we had fun potentially horrifying those around us!

So yes this has been my life. I've been home for break since late Sunday night thanks to that fencing tournament eating the first weekend and forcing me to be in a car for 10 hours. I'm here until Sunday. Most of my time has been dedicated to snuggling Korey ;3;

So. I really wish I had friends on campus. It's a bit sad, the only reason I had anything to do on Halloween was because Korey spontaneously came to visit from Tuesday to last night. No one ever wants to do shit outside of class and this is very sad to me.

In happier news, though, quidditch is awesome. I got to play a little in our last tournament and got nothing but praise for being awesome once it was said and done. That was nice. Just gotta keep it up and get even better for the Midwest Cup!

In other good news, I got a job! Thank God. It's at one of the school food courts. The hours are pretty nice re; not being too long and not being horribly invasive into my free time but still good enough to make some money.

That date I mentioned last time? It went well. I have a girlfriend now. ;3; <3

On the fandom side, I finished this season of Face Off last night. OH. MY. GOD.

Face Off spoilers )

Also Korey and I marathoned Another as part of our Halloween activities. Holy shit. This show. It is so good. Anyone who wants a good horror anime to watch needs to watch it. Seriously.

I'm closer to finishing Fate/Extra. Then I can start the first Phoenix Wright game! I actually got my hands on that at Gamestop the other day hnnnnngh

Welp, that's how my life has been.

So I'm here at Indiana University and today was my first day of classes. Here's the rundown of my first week (well, 6 days rather) of being in Bloomington:

We left my house around 1 PM last Tuesday. Mom and dad took the Kia, and I rode with Korey. I had enough shit to pack two cars lmao I suck. The ride down was pretty pleasant. Thank god it wasn't too hot out since Korey's car has no AC. When we got there, unloading and setting up my room took for-fucking-ever. Also some tomfoolery occurred. Nothing too serious, but lol Korey locked his keys in his car. Luckily there was an on-campus service that you can use for free 3 times that we utilized to get his damn keys back. I won't need it, at least not this semester, since I don't have my car here so it's no big deal. That was pretty annoying, though, since my dad dropped what he was doing to try to help, and obviously Korey also stopped helping me unload, so it made unloading take ages. Mom and I continued on, though. Once we got enough shit out of the car we went to eat. The place we went was delicious and had blood orange cosmopolitans that were to die for. pretty tipsy on them because I was drinking on an empty stomach, but it was alright. After that, yes while I was tipsy, we all went over to my great aunt's house. She lives in Bloomington and she's really cool. She's in her 90's but it doesn't seem like it at all. She lives with her son Charlie, who works at one of the dining halls on campus that I'll probably eat at. It was a pretty nice visit, and both of them are really impressed with Korey. lmao actually I have a running list on my phone of people who have said we're great together. This list includes Aunt Annabee, my grandma, and a stripper, among other people. Yeah.

Korey stayed overnight for 2 nights to help me get settled in. Official move-in day was Wednesday, which was just the induction ceremony and a picnic afterward. Korey originally planned to leave that night but he wasn't feeling up to the drive, so I was able to convince him to stay until about 3 PM the next day. We got breakfast the day before at a really good local place with delicious pancakes, then on Thursday had lunch together at the IMU. We were kind of embarrassingly PDA-tastic with that since he left me from there. So there was lots of clinging and kissing orz. We also had lots of sex while he was here but that's kind of a given and y'all don't need details.

Over the course of the week I got my room all set up. It wasn't 100% done before Korey left but he was pleasantly surprised at how nice I got it (given how much shit we hauled up here). It's pretty excellent, if I do say so myself.

pictures! )

My parents stayed until Friday. Over the course of the week we made quite a few trips out to surrounding stores to do some last minute shopping for stuff I forgot or didn't know I needed. I left my toothbrush behind lmao, so that was one thing I needed replaced. I also got some food including mochi ice cream for my freezer skjfjw, and a ton of miscellaneous things. I got a tennis racquet for one thing, which will def. come in handy.

Thursday was supposed to be the Culturefest but due to rain and other bs it was kind of a bust. Mom and I ended up going out to eat together instead, which turned out to be a good idea! We went to a place called the Chow Bar, which is a yummy Chinese place with bubble tea. I had mom try it, too, she ordered an iced coffee one and loved it. Both our orders were delicious, too, though mine took some warming up to on my part because it was super spicy. But anyway, the reason why I'm glad I skipped out on Culturefest? I was feeling kind of lonely since that was my first day here without Korey around at all and I couldn't really get a hold of any of the few friends I have down here, and my attempt to go to Culturefest before it got rained out was basically me standing around in a line being bored to tears. But while I was at the restaurant, after a while a group of about 5 people came in and started talking while waiting for their food. The conversation was interesting and they were at the table right next to mine, so I interjected something and the girl sitting closest to me and I ended up talking a lot. This was probably the first solid friend I ended up making here. She's a really nice girl and an opera major. She doesn't have much free time because of how demanding her major is, but we exchanged numbers, have been texting back and forth some, and have loose plans to play tennis sometime.

Later that night was a game night at the library, with games of all sorts. I went to that. They had an emulator with a ton of arcade games set up. I hit that up immediately and wound up playing Soul Calibur against a pretty cool guy named Ben. Also I totally kicked his ass with Sophita, twice in a row. We didn't exchange contact info for some reason, though, oops. I stayed until about 11PM (this lasted until midnight) before having mom walk me back to my dorm (she hung out reading and balancing her checkbook at a chair). On my way out an upperclassman offered to set up help getting me back to my dorm before mom explained that she was my mom and walking me home. Later on I ended up running into her again and it turns out she's really cool and an anime fan and we're getting to be pretty good friends.

Friday was busy. There was a job fair, which I hit up and it looks like I may get hired by one of the places I put in an application with. I'm getting a 2nd interview! There were also open houses for a lot of the various groups the campus has. I spent all of my time at the GLBT Support Services open house. I ran into my friend Dylan that I met at orientation there (unsurprisingly since he's gay). There were tons of cute girls there too omfg. I got one girl's number but sadly she hasn't texted me back, I've sent her a couple messages. I also got info for the callout meeting for Girls Like Us, which is a club/support group for queer girls. That's tomorrow and I'm excited for it. The librarian that runs the (glorious) library at the office is a total sweetheart, too, and I've been talking to her a lot as I keep running into her. After all that was the RecFest, for stuff from the rec centers (we have like 3 of them). It had a weird fair thing with local businesses, free snow cones, signups for intramural sports, and a big exhibition of club sports. I got myself on the contact list for fencing club ASAP, and the callout meeting for that is tomorrow. I also gave my contact info to the tennis club, ballroom dancing club, and tae kwon do club. I may end up doing tae kwon do since I used to and I have a friend in the club, but idk, time constraints and all.

Friday was also when my parents left. We did some stuff together including going out for dinner at HuHot, a really fucking good Mongolian barbecue (well it's not authentic, it's really just a create your own stir fry place, but it's good). omfg you can order s'mores there, and doing so is so cool. They bring out a little pot that they light a fire in so you can roast your marshmallows. * ^ * so fucking cool.

After my parents left, that night was Midnight Madness at Wal Mart. Basically every year Wal Mart has a huge sale that night, they give away a bunch of free things, and they have games and events set up throughout and outside the store. I'll be honest, my main reason for being there was actually the midnight release of The Hunger Games. I had fun in that line chatting with two girls from the Ivy Tech in town, and enjoyed my delicious THG cupcake. After that, I jumped on this bungee trampoline thing from hell that was fun and scary but mostly fun. Lots of people were doing backflips on it, and I considered trying that while still on the ground, but once I was on it I was like nope. I also did some shopping, got a nice carrier for shower supplies, for one thing, since my suitemate has one and they look hella useful. They are. Also got some other things here and there. Carrying it back was a bit hard though. While I was out I ran into Alex, my other gay friend from orientation. Those guys are both so sweet ;3; Also, on the shuttle bus to Wal Mart, I talked to and made friends with an unbelievably cute and nice Chinese girl that sat next to me. We have indefinite plans to hang out sometime next week. Aaah so much fun meeting all these people~

Saturday and Sunday were basically roll around and get shit ready days. I did laundry for the first time and made use of the elliptical we have in the downstairs area. Sunday did a run in the morning, and I got to hang out with Alycia for a little while in the afternoon. I also had my phone interview for the potential job, which I apparently did well in since I'm going on to the next round of interviews. There was also a mandatory floor meeting, which I went to ofc. It was pretty nice since we got to meet each other and get to know each other a bit better. Also this is when I met Giada. She's a really sweet and drop dead gorgeous Italian woman. We plan on going out for drinks possibly this weekend. I also got stopped by a random brony on Sunday after I parted ways with Alycia (I was wearing my Rainbow Dash shirt). He was a really nice guy, we exchanged contact info, etc. No regrets, he seems like the sort of brony that's fun to be around, not the creepy and icky kind. I met another brony on Sunday, too, who is also of the cool variety. My RA introduced us, since I'm getting to be pretty good friends with her, and she's friends with this guy and he's RA of another floor in the building. He told me about the brony club on campus, which I'm totally joining. So far IU bronies seem pretty damn cool. He gave me Wal Mart posters, too. <3 I still need to put them up.

Today was my first day of classes. All I had was German, though. I love it, of course. My prof is awesome. She's super sweet and really fun. She's actually Russian, too. When she speaks English it's really cute imo. She's not hard to understand at all, not to me, but her English is a bit broken in an endearing way. She's also hot. But yeah she seems like a really fun person, and the class has a heavy focus on speaking, which is great for me since my German class I took via the local college a few years ago was the opposite. Through no fault of the professor, mind you, Frau Samuelson was an excellent teacher. Unfortunately, the local college only gives a fuck about engineering and only has foreign languages for the purpose of like. Translating manuals. So languages teachers there are instructed to not put much focus on speaking. But I digress.

Today was also a protest at one of the food courts. The one that has Chick Fil A. It went really well! I handed out flyers and talked to people. Everyone I talked to was friendly and cool. Also, my proudest moment in quite some time came from this; one woman I approached was stone cold to me. She just quietly listened while blankly staring at me. Later on while I was taking a break, though, I saw her sign the petition on her way out. That felt good. My legs were sore from how much exercising I did yesterday so I didn't do much beyond walking to and from classes, the library, and the LGBT support services office to turn in my library usage form. There was a floor dinner with free pizza, which I went to. Spent more time with Giada and Erin, and talked more to some other people too. Alysia is right across the hall from me, is pretty cool, and offered to play tennis with me since I asked for tennis partners at the floor meeting. Corey (who is a girl) is a German major and she and her suitemate Jordyn (also a girl) are super cool and sweet ;3; There's also Betty, the oldest person on the floor (she refuses to disclose her exact age, but she confirmed herself the oldest after Giada said she was 28, so there you go). She's super nice and a voice major. She and I are getting to be good friends. Also Anna, from Australia. She's adorable~ ;3;

So yeah, that's more or less where things are. Also as far as people I already knew, [other] Mary, and old friend from Ft Wayne, is here, as is David, a friend from school (we were never close but I always liked him, he was a nice guy). There's also Kelsey, who was supposed to be my roommate during orientation, but she ended up feeling sick and staying with her parents in their hotel room. We still met each other, though, and wound up becoming pretty good friends. I still haven't seen these 3 yet, but I know they're here.

Tomorrow will be busy. I have 3 classes, 2 callout meetings, and some misc things to take care of. I love it here!

First thing's first; I officially have a new job! It's a pretty sweet deal, too. Basically it's temporary custodial work at the local high school. I got in because my dad's a teacher at the high school and he's done this for a couple years, so I asked him if he could ask his boss for it if he'd take me on, too. I got in. The only drawback is that my work day starts at 6 AM, but it's not really too bad. It's Monday-Friday, 6 AM-3PM. The work is a bit hard physically, but not as bad as McDonald's. The pay rate is $8.98/hour, which beats the hell out of the $7.25/hour at McDonald's, especially since they're automatically giving me more hours per day than McDonald's did. They never gave me 8 hour shifts. My boss is pretty chill, too. He understands that I have back problems and need to sit down sometimes. tl;dr this rocks.

I'm playing Pokemon Conquest now! It's a glorious game. I'm kind of in love with the female main character, Oichi, Ginchiyo, and Motochika so far. This game is just. Awesome. ngl I ship my femc, Lady Ayu, with Oichi really hard. Also Ginchiyo is so gorgeous and ngl I want to cosplay her sometime.

I've also finally been watching Gurren Lagann. It's SO GOOD. I knew I'd love it and that it would be, but yup. It's all true. And Yoko is glorious, fuck the haters.

;3; Korey said he'd cosplay Halloween 2010 Austria and Hungary with me~ (That's devil doctor and devil nurse, not princess and prince, rofl). I got him reading my volumes of Hetalia and he rather likes it. Poor thing, he was expecting BL. I hate how the fandom has made people think that's what it is ='|. Also if we ever get in shape enough for it, we'd like to do Yoko and Kamina too ;3; We're such dorks.

I just got a lovely package in the mail today! And one a couple days ago. Both were figures, albeit in very different senses.

East and West~ )

I've also gotten some actual anime and manga in lately. Specifically Madoka vol. 3 and Asobi ni iku yo! aka Cat Planet Cuties last month, then Hetalia season 4, Hetalia manga vol. 3, and Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt all in one package a week or so ago. I got my Heaven coin with Panty and Stocking, which is a nice touch ♥

In IRL-related news, ;3; Korey and I actually went on a date for the first time in too damn long last week. We went Red Lobster for dinner, then went to see Brave again. After the movie we headed to a nearby park to watch the sunset. Or rather the moon rising. It was a gorgeous full moon that night. My July 4th wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular either. Thanks to this fucking drought and heatwave we had no fireworks, even the public ones were canceled. So I just got together with Korey and a handful of guy friends and we watched 1776, bought some fireworks for when we can shoot them off, watched half of Madoka, and went to Amazing Spiderman. Which was pretty good.

Also Betsy is coming to visit! I'm going to go up to her place, stay the night, then bring her back tomorrow.
