Cut for stupid stuff. Plus some swearing.Collapse )

My dog died today

Not too long ago actually. The vet, she came here to do it this morning.

It's not a surprise. She wasn't even 12 yet (would have been in May if she'd made it) but she was getting worse for a long time, and the last couple of days she really got hit with it. So it was for the best. She was in pain. She couldn't DO anything and she was unhappy.

It's not like I wasn't prepared and I sat with her and stroked her as it happened.

It was pretty fast all in all. It was for the best.

But why am I still crying?

It would have been worse to keep her alive like that.

Haven't been around much... plus weird fandom dreams
heartbeat flame

Not sure if anyone noticed though (really should post more often in general lmao) but mostly I'm doing a placement which involves ecological management right now and internet access is limited there. I don't get paid but I get free accommodation (plus all electricity heating bills included) there and I've enough money saved from my coffee shop job (which I've left) for food and all. I'm currently home right now to work on assignments for my part time communications course (.... joy).

I'm also posting mostly because of a fandom dream I had last night though which I've done before here. It mostly involved both Korra and Asami dressed up in costumes. Basically Asami was dressed up as Riza Hawkeye and Korra was arguing she'd be better as Lust. I guess I can blame the fact one of the two others on the same placement as me has Fullmetal Brotherhood which I've been watching with them (I think we're up to episode 31?) . Korra was dressed up like Edward Elric.

But in any case they were chasing after a goblin for some reason, but they weren't allowed for the goblin to look them in the eye to catch him. My dream also decided to show me the grisly results if they did with a soldier (it seemed to be in our world too, and the goblin seemed to favour running around multistory car parks and office buildings at night). Basically the goblin would almost get this possessed look on his face and then hunt them down incredibly violently if he looked them in the eye before they captured him properly.

I have no idea what is wrong with my dreams sometimes really.

Just finished watching the entirety of book 1 ATLA...

... in the span of a few days.

Feels good guys, feels good. (Do you know I've owned all three books for a while now and yet HAVEN'T done this? What a travesty. I still have the plastic coatings on book 2 and 3 right now, and before this I mostly was watching the season finale and the Blue Spirit alone as my favourite s1 episodes). I technically have an exam on Thursday, so it was mostly what I used for breaks. It isn't a particularly important test and I'm off work this week so it was mostly something to do. I already did pretty well on my assignment which was worth more- better in fact then expected so... -shrugs- Not really feeling the pressure I guess. Which is weird for me.

I plan to watch book 2 after the exam during days off from work.

There's some talk on book 1, and why Korra's own book 1 maybe failed to impress for some in retrospect?


In which I ramble, a lot, be warned.Collapse )

Random post time/min-rant.

Yeah it's been a while since I've posted. But just close-to-1am ramblings about tumblr here. Under the cut. Not pretty so seriously just scroll away if you don't want to see it. I may regret this later but damn it all.

I don't think a tumblr blog would be a good idea for me.Collapse )

OMFG Obama won.

Communications
heartbeat flame
mentalguru
I am currently doing a Post Grad Diploma Course on Communications. Part-Time so it's just an evening a week and it would take 2 years to earn it, but I can leave after 1 year with a Certificate if I wish.

You know what's funny? Doing science degree courses and then trying to do a course in something which is anything but scientific. (The full Masters is technically an MSc, but it is SO NOT SCIENCE this communications course I am on. A few models does not science make to me). Sure I'm sure SOME communication courses are scientific (say if you were looking into the mechanics of communication devices like computers, phones etc) but that's not the type of communication course this is at all. It's more people based, which is good I guess since well, that's what I signed up for. Trying to beef up the old CV and all.

So not really a critique at all, it just isn't scientific to me that's all especially after all the biology I've ingested- and biology is considered a softer science then say chemistry or physics. Communications still matters a lot though IMO and I think there are definitely people around the good old internet who would benefit from it.

Communications does seem interesting and in some ways my experiences on the internet have helped but a part of my brain is like asgafhafsdf when there are really no clear rules/facts in some areas. Still, I think this is a good class in empathy if nothing else judging by the fact chapter 3 of my text book goes into inter-cultural ideas.

I'm fascinated. Yet now slightly freaking out at the same time since my first major assignment (WORTH 70% OF MY FIRST MODULE MARK, ACK.)will be about my coffee shop job though. Honestly? I'd rather delve into the inter-cultural stuff. It's like I'm in a sweet shop and instead of getting caramel they're pushing me into coconut junction. Which is okay if you like coconut and I'm more or less okay with it to try, but it's not exactly what I want to have right now when there are more interesting things to consume.

I am bad at words. Maybe this course will help though.
