I'm almost finished with this semester of college. We're in finals week now. I'm doing my best to catch up on my math homework.

I have an appointment for Testosterone! Well, technically, it's the consultation for it, but I'm working to get my blood work done next week so I can bring the results to the appointment with me. If they like what they see, it's possible they may decide to start me on T right then. So, we'll see.

I was diagnosed with ADHD - inattentive type, which, frankly, explains so much about my life. It's relieving on the one hand because now I know that my struggles with school and prioritizing and focusing aren't because there's something wrong with me as a person but because my brain isn't functioning the way it should be. On the other hand, I saw a therapist as a teenager specifically because of difficulties with school and SHE DIDN'T CHECK FOR THIS? THE FUCK? But, okay, at least it was caught now and not even later down the line. Knowing what I'm dealing with has actually been helpful for making progress.

Just did a major overhaul of my icons. They're now mostly of lesbians and genderqueers. More specifically Frankie from Lip Service (I wish I could turn the girl's heads like she does), and Franky from Skins who I feel I'm more like in a sense. There was no particular reason behind this change other than wanting more Franky icons. Then I was like "what the hell" and throw in more Frankie icons as well.

...It's really bad that two of my favorite television characters have the same name. That might get confusing...

Got my teeth cleaned today. I don't like the process, but I do like the feeling of my teeth afterward.

Anyway, with the end of the semester, I've been thinking about some things. I'm going to fail my math class. There's nothing I can do about that. I should have done more, but I didn't. Anything I do now will be too little too late. I need to change something if I'm going to do well next semester, and I have to do better next semester otherwise I won't get into LSUA which means it will be even longer until MacKenzi and I are together.

rambling behind cut )

I'm not sure how my e-bay store will work now that I've decided to go to Louisiana next year. I mean, I don't see any reason not to do it for this year and get some extra pocket cash, but I'm not sure how MacKenzi's parents will feel about how me operating a weapon's store out of their house, and I can't have knives and stuff delivered to my dorm room. I mean, the only thing I'll be doing with those knives is having them delivered, taking them out of the box to make sure they're all right and then ship the off again.

On the other hand, I was planning on selling dragon figurines and such as well, so I could probably still do that if I wanted to. I don't think they'd have a problem with that. So I could continue selling the figurines and such and just discontinue the knives for a few years until MacKenzi and I get our own place.

If I can ever get the router number to our bank so I can set up Paypal to work with e-bay, then I'll get around to discussing it with her parents.

It's also come to my attention, that I need to clean up my room again and maybe get something to hold my knives in. I have seven pocket knives and only one is really suited to be decorative (pretty much at the expense of it being a functional tool, but, you know) and while the rest look pretty cool to me, they're not decorative knives. So having them all over the place is more like clutter than decorations. But that's just because I have clutter all over the place already so it just seems like they are.

However, I should probably get a case or something to keep most of them in, and then switch out one or two to have around to use as tools and decorations. (After all, who needs scissors when you have a badass looking knife?) I just need to find a good case.

Also, I have to wonder why collecting knives = psycho/uncomfortable to some people. I don't understand what's psychotic or awkward about collecting knives. It's a hobby. Some people collect beanie babies. Some people collect stamps. Some collect baseball cards or figurines or preserved butterflies or some other kind of bugs. Some people collect guns. And some people collect knives.

Now, if I was going around stabbing people with them or was a violent person, I can see why that would be concerning. But despite the fact that when I get pissed I talk about wanting to punch people in the face or rip them apart or beat the shit out of them, the fact of the matter is is that I've never actually hit someone (rough housing doesn't count). I've never actually tried to hurt someone. So I just don't get it. I had to do an "ice breaker" speech for my Speech Communication Class, and I mentioned it and people got awkward. I mean, I'm not complaining because I don't ever see these people outside my class, and my friends think knives are cool too, and at least two of them collect. My cousin-in-law Sean collects swords (he has them hanging on the walls around his and Brianna's house) and takes fencing classes. My grandpa even had some decorative swords around their house (I don't think my grandma's taken them down since he died either).

And my girlfriend even thinks they're awesome!  I mean, that's part of why she's my girlfriend in the first place because that's one of the things that I love about her: that she doesn't think my knife collecting is weird or creepy. So that's pretty sweet. She even took me to a knife store while I was down visiting her, and she thought it was adorable how excited and into it I was. They had sword canes there! I've never actually seen a sword cane before! It was AWESOME. I need to make some extra money to bring down when I visit over Thanksgiving so I can buy one and ship it back home. Russell will be so freaking jealous. :3

So maybe it's just because I know so many people that appreciate the beauty and coolness of knives and swords that I don't get people's aversion to them or awkwardness around people who collect.

*shrug* I just don't know.

Uuuugh, I found two beautiful layouts on livejournal. I want to use them both for my journal, but I can't. So I settled for using this one for my journal and this one for writing journal.

I wish I knew how to use a custom theme on Dreamwidth, but I can't seem to get them to work quite right. It's frustrating. And disappointing. :(

Wow, importing everything from LJ to DW was surprisingly quick and easy. I didn't expect it to be so painless, to be honest. Of course, now I'm looking over things like my "friends only" post and realize it really needs to be updated and just generally rewritten. But I've never been good with those things so...

I've also come to the conclusion that, whether or not I actually move my basic base of operations here to dreamwidth, I'm letting my paid account on LJ expire. I'm not giving my money to a company that allows it's staff to troll users (more on that later for anyone who wants to hear it). I'm not leaving LJ entirely, because you guys are so awesome and there are a few communities keeping me there as well, but I'm not giving them anymore money. Once my LJ subscription runs out in a couple of months, I'll probably get a paid account here on Dreamwidth.

And now I shall go skedaddle off to play Left 4 Dead and wait for my wonderful girlfriend's class to end. :)

I took a nap during my two hour break today (I go home for that) and slept half way through my second to last class. So I decided to fuck it, I'm done for the day, and tried to fall back to sleep. That didn't work so I decided to eat food, drink soda and watch The Daily Show. Now I just hope that my girlfriend will have mercy on my soul when she reads this. (I'm not going to make this a habit, I promise!)

Now I need to drop stuff off at the office, and tell my mom I can do a delivery for her today. I shall be making monies which I promise to not immediately blow on a Nintendo DS or manga. I shall, instead, promise to put it toward other things such as food and extra spending money for next weekend when I go to visit my girl. :3

Just got this last night so I figured I should post something in it. I'm going to poke around and see if I can get all my LJ entries transferred over here like I've heard you can.

But, that shall have to wait! For I have classes soon. :( So not awesome...

I Win?

I found this website called The Internetometer. It's funny and awesome. XD

Basically it works like this: if you think I win at life and the Internets, click this link and give me an internet! :D

And that was your daily dose of random. :)

The series finale of Monk premiered last night. I'm sad that Monk is over, but at the same time, I love how it ended. Monk was truely happy for the first time, and it was hopeful that he would be able to overcome some of his problems so that he could have a more normal and happy life.

It's just weird to think that a show I've watched for so many years, even if I haven't always watched it faithfully, is over.

Just some of my favorite moments from the newest iCarly episode. :3

* "Gibby, there is so much not right with you."

* "Um...Gibby, what are you doing?"
*rubbing against tank* Maaah thiiiiiiiing.

*"Draw my foot!"

*" You had me draw hobos in the park for three hours!"

* "No, Gibby, your answer was so far off, we're calling your parents and having you tested."

*"Take that you blond headed demon!"

*"Wait, your mom had laser eye sugery today, and she's driving a car?"
"I never said she makes good decisions!"
"And you're getting in the car with her?"
"I never said, I made good decisions!"

So I was watching Yu-Gi-Oh! D5 for the first time (I do not understand why they ride around on bikes while dueling) and it made me majorly nostalgic so my brother and I dug up our old decks and dueled. I kicked his ass--as always. XD I'm seriously considering going out and buying a pack of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards just to see some of the new cards they've come up with. Also, I asked Ethan where all the Yu-Gi-Oh! gameboy games we had had gone so he found them for me and I've just started a new game on The Sacred Cards.

Finally got the banner for winning week #46 at [community profile] avatar_contestwith my fic Destiny.

Check it!:

It's pretty cool, even if only to remind me that I won something. Still a little conflicted about it being that fic since I was lazy with that fic, and it's no where near what it could have been if I hadn't procrastinated until the last second. But whatever.

Hello, nice to meet you. What's your name?
It's good to see you, Devon.
I hear you. Are you really a ""?
That was not very polite.
I know.
How do you know it?
...I dunno
Me either.
Oh...well, that's good to know, I guess.
Dude! Interesting. Hmm, are you serious?
Lawl! No, I'm a jackrabbit.

God stopped talking to me after that. :( I guess he doesn't like jackrabbits.
