- Yeul (FFXII-2)
"Summer disappears like a dream I had; and winter comes with a knife and it cuts you down. [ Oh it never ends, it never ends ]"

I will never ever be able to recreate that icon, and it's probably one of my favorite icons to date-- just wit the feel, the angle, the little light circle that is very gently wrapped around Yuel, the cloud covering and how the colour blends in seamlessly with Yuel.



This entire icon, the song-- oh the song. This is an icon from another game that I really could not care less about, but I loved the Caius and Yuel side story, and the purpose and how he was trying to save her and how it paralleled Serah and Noel's story in a nutshell, I can't really say anymore then that-- but I think that Yuel's entire story is one of 'not being forgotten' and so the song, it really fits.

Man, I still wish I could recreate this icon.

So I watched the first episode of Terrace House- Boys and Girls in the City, a japanese reality tv show; like the Real World-- but so much more polite. Then I was like "Owen has to watch it", because he loves reality t.v and I thought that he'd be amused.

I showed him the first episode--- and soon one episode turned into three, and then into 9 before he had to leave, it successfully made him NOT think about his fasting for Ramadan (which he survived the first day of, I know my boyfriend is very strong but I still feel guilty about consuming food and drink in front of him, not because I think he will cave but as a respect to his religion).

Seriously, because it's so calm-- I think that makes the series even show even more fucked up. Like what happens at Blue Note with Yuriko and Yuki, That was so very messed up in it's entirety. then at the end of it, I asked him if he was addicted-- he smiled sheepishly and said "yeah--". So now I have to watch it with him-- it's a whole bunch of drama llama-- and the commentary is actually pretty refreshing. But I love their level of scandalized, so much that I wonder how they'd react to Jersey Shore. (oh gods, "fast horrified japanese talking* DTF *fast horrified japanese talking* SITUATION *fast horrified japanese talking blah blah* SNOOKIE")

If anyone ever wondered how easy it is for me to fall into random series-- well there's your answer, it obviously takes the time it takes me to read a simple post about a japanese version of The Real World-- so approximately five minutes.

We won't talk about work-- we just won't, because that is when I get angry and then I want to punch people in the face

Instead I will talk about how much I am enjoying "A Court of Wings and Ruin" by Sarah J. Maas.

I like her Aelin Galithenius series alright, I suppose; though some (most) of the characters don't resonate with me like the Court series. And I actually hated the first book when I read it, A Court of Thorns and Roses was not my most favorite because I didn't care for Tamlin, I didn't like Feyre (until things happened that made her a more interesting character) but I read the next book, and Sarah J. Maas rained down on me a sea of INTERESTING CHARACTERS (tm). I adored Mor, Amren, Cassian, Azriel and Rhysand, they were my squad goals right there, and then you got to see more of Feyre's sisters (whom also A++++), and that is quite simply a recipe for epic.

The Throne of Glass series was interesting but the characters for the most part-- Caleana was too cocky, I didn't really like Chaol, I didn't like her other significant other, her mate-- I did like Lysandra but only because I have a big fondness for bitchy bitches (*waves the Team Nesta flag*), and yeah, I did like the Blackbeaks, my favorite part of the entire book was that coven of witches.

But for me, a book hinges on interesting characters-- if a book doesn't have characters that I like (or enough of them), it falls flat.

Rome was saved for good characterizations.

Look at Twilight-- I disliked the main couple, but I did like the side characters and they were the only reason I kept listening to the audiobook when otherwise I would of been like "KILL THE BOOK WITH FIRE"-- so yes, I can say that Twilight has 'some' merit, not a lot but some; certainly not enough to think that a 20 year old werewolf imprinting on a 5 year old is fine-- ewww Stephanie Meyers, EWWWW!)

Now to start making some Sarah J. Maas icons!

How is everyone's week going?

Hopefully well!

Midnight is what time we got out-- normally start time is 11:30 and end time is 10:00 which is a straight 10 hours' but today we came in at 10:30 and got out at 12:00-- which is too much time.. TOO MUCH TIME DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO TAKE WAY TOO MUCH OF MY ENERY-- it's like everywhere, everywhere "STUPIDITY SURROUNDS", and you'd think that I wasn't an ENFP with the talk that I am indulging in.

But most people forget one vital function of the ENFP personality-- that is Te.

Ni (function-dominant): SPARKLES BUNNIES RAINBOWS BOOKS VIDEO GAMES ALL THE THINGS *grabby hands*
Fi (function-auxiliary): Hey, let me sit here and read sappy romance novels and listen to Keane music all day
>
Si (function-inferior): *the kid with the ipod stuck in his ears, playing bejeweled blitz on his cellphone-- every single minute of every single day*

Right between Fi and Si, there is Te--

There was a song written about my Te function, it was by Cake, entitled "Short Skirt, Long Jacket"-- Tertiary function, hates people, hates everyone, likes coffee, likes songs about shooting the balls off of men, is a mean ass motherfucking bitch-- it is the part that exists while I am at work-- there is no fun times with me (unless you are Owen or a chosen few who my Te has deemed 'hard workers' and therefore worthy of being exposed to the other areas of my personality), I will tell you exactly what I think of you and I will do it in the most blunt and brutal way-- the queen of the bitch slap (the ENFP bitch slap is as real as the INFJ door slam-- and the Te function pretty much invented it). There are many people who I have plotted out their deaths intricately in my mind, but unfortunately for Te, my other functions click into place once I leave that raging cesspit, and thus no opportunity to do so (also, as we've discussed-- there's no video games in prison, so murder is a no go, I'd be SOOOO bored)

Today Te was in overdrive, so much that I hopefully will sleep like a baby-- seriously 13 hours in that place like 13 hours too many

Did I mention that I have to wake up in 7 hours to do it ALL again-- motherfucking A-----~!!

What I wouldn't give to work with competent people-- and people say that I act way different on facebook then at work-- well d'uh! I'm happier when I don't have to deal with constant stupidity-- you'd think I was a babysitter or something.

Yes, I'm harsh-- I know--

Sorry for not responding to posts or anything-- I did read all of them (okay I skimmed them)-- but mondays are usually not ideal response days for me-- hopefully y'all had a better and more fufilling monday then I did-- guess I better throw myself at my bed and hope that this adrenaline pans out so that I can sleep!

So I was pulling up to the ATM to get money out (stupid roommate once again shorted his side of rent), and when I pulled in the ATM was covered in some sort of cream-- I don't know if it was whipped cream or shaving cream but it was gross-- totally gross.

I merely said, "NO THANK YOU!" and was bam out of there. I don't know what went through those people's heads but I bet the security camera footage that the bank views in the morning will be one hell of a party.
