Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. My high school and undergrad academic achievements. I was third in my class in High School and managed to graduate Magna Cum Lade with a mathematics degree. Seriously a ton of work for both, but I held in there and did it. ^.^

2. Going to steal one from Elf. Finding a voice/learning to speak out in groups. When I was in school (until Otakon) I was constantly sitting in the background. Adults where the only ones I really felt comfortable around except for a few peers. (Multiple friend betrayals contributed to this.) In my senior year I basically told off a very popular girl who wasn't following the expectations for attendance for band. And everyone else in the section cheered me on for it. :) (She also threatened to jump me after school. Apparently she didn't think about the fact I went home with my dad, who worked at the school.)

Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. People making a spelling or reading mistake and saying "oh, I must have dyslexia." Guys, Dyslexia is a real disability that does more than 'make you see letters backwards' (..which it doesn't actually do at all). Please treat it with respect, like any other disability.

2. Ineffective execution: I hate it when people come up with an idea and don't really plan out how they're going to do it. For example, self checkout lines that take over for traditional check out lines...but aren't actually activated for a few months, thus putting more strain on the regular checkout lines. Or Windows, sending out a crapy operating system every so many years then putting out the good one a few years later. (One of the things I liked about Apple - at least under Jobs - was that the stuff was going to WORK when they got it out on the market.)

3. People who demand warnings for (or worse, filters for) anything with same-sex couples. I'm not talking about graphic sex. I'm talking about people who think that a kiss needs warnings just because its between two guys or two girls. (Or, even worse, is okay with one of those because it's 'hot' but not the other because that's gross.)

1. Do not ask me 'what are the odds' of something happen. I will start breaking down conditions and thinking about it. While I don't have enough probability knowledge to actually calculate it, I can usually point out things to make it more likely.

2. I will listen to new songs I like over and over again. (This drives [profile] musicshoes crazy.) As a side note, almost all of my new music comes from AMVs via Itunes.

3. I tend to write fic of fic at lot. Most of it will never get published, but I enjoy mentally crossing fic universes, or writing happier endings to existing stories.

4. I save a lot of gorgeous fanart but don't actually look at it that much. I have plans to maybe make it a slideshow screensaver when I move out.

1. Puella Magi Madoka Magica (anime): This series is amazing. It takes the magical girl genre into a dark, bitter place, but at the same time, really allows for hope in the end. Also, the music is absolutely beautiful.

2. Princess Tutu (anime. NOT THE MANGA.): Like Madoka, Princess Tutu is very serious at points, but has a lovely cast of characters and good messages. The music is wonderful since they mostly stole things from the great ballets. XD

3. Slayers (Anime): Slayers is comedy and action at (IMHO) its finest. Lots of silliness, good character relationships and pretty good animation, especially in the NEXT season.

4. The Walker Papers (Book Series): Very Dresden Files like, but moves a bit faster, (especially compared to the beginning books of the Dresden Files).

5. Numb3rs (TV Show): Similar to CSI, except with math. It isn't 100% solid (carrying over character development, especially romance is an issue, and they lost actors some years) but it's still a lot of fun.

...only six?

1. Meeting [personal profile] kiraya. <3

2. Praying for two years for a baby sister. As much as she sometimes drives me crazy, [profile] musicshoes will always be my little miracle.

3. Went to Otakon for the first time: Otakon was the first time I really felt like it was okay to like anime, it was okay to be a geek, it was okay to just love stories and hand out and be insane. I've never been a 'normal' kid and always had trouble fitting in. Being in a mass of people that big who more or less shared my passion was amazing and wonderful for my self esteem. It literally changed my life. Also, I wrote my college essay on it. (For real.)

4. Getting a livejournal so I could write for [profile] houseofsmex. So much joy (and some pain, but over all more joy) has come from it. <3

5. Starting to post my fiction.

6. Taking the job I did. I really love working with the people in my building and in my district. <3

Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. Freedom of speech for teachers: There was this really good article about how teacher's basically have to watch everything they say, and especially what they show on the internet. Case in point: A teacher (over 21) posted a facebook picture of herself in a bar on her trip to Germany, BEHIND PRIVACY SETTINGS - but ended up losing her job for being a 'negative influence' or something like that. It's in court now, but it's still something to think about.

2. Some people are really freaking ungrateful. You offer them hours of work on your part and they go "there are lots of typos in this". FINE then. DO IT YOURSELF. /rant.

3. Happy endings and victories: I like strong characters who have already gone through their growth period and are now kick-ass. This is probably why Return of the Jedi is my favorite Star Wars movie. I like that moment when everything goes RIGHT.

...this sometimes makes it difficult to write fic.

4. It is (almost?) impossible to feel like a real adult when you're living in your parent's house.

5. The "road less traveled" clique. We need a lot of people traveling the regular roads or else the world would fall apart, guys. Sometimes doing something that isn't extraordinary is important. It's the little things that keep life going.

6. I always have things to say but if I don't write them down when I think of them I forget them. This post is a good case in point.

7. Sugar is evil in some ways. I'm fine if I don't eat it for a while - no cravings at all - but once I start it's really hard to stop. :/

Day Nine: Two things for which you're proud of yourself.
Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. The ability to sit down and get something done. This is something I have - well, I've learned how to do - but it drives me crazy when people CAN'T do it.

2. Organization. Portions of my life are always a disaster. >.<

3. People who can honestly can recognize negative situations, but deal with them with postive energy, kindness and supportive behavoir. I'm thinking in particular of a new report they had about the type of character that Tim Tebow has here who, even when losing, is just a nice, positive guy apparently.

4. The ability to laugh at once self and not always take things seriously.

5. Self Confidence (but like Shiro said, to a reasonable level). I'm so rarely sure of myself that I envy that in other people...

6. The abliity to let things go. Forgiveness is one of the hardest things in this world.

7. The willingingness to improve oneself. It's so easy to get stuck into a rut. Continually stretching yourself if difficult and brings a lot of hardship.

8. The ability to stand up for your convictions and not back down. This is honestly something that terrified me, but I wish I could do.

Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. I am short. As in, I round to 5'3''. (Which, I realize isn't that short, but I regularly have to hem my petite clothes, so it's short enough. :/)

2. I'm not a coffee drinker or an alcohol drinker. I feel like I need to find SOMETHING I like to drink, but haven't yet. I just don't like the taste. (And I'm super sensitive to coffee flavor. I can pick out mocha flavoring like no one's business.)

3. I'm dyslexic, but highly functioning enough to get by without ever being classified (and having a super supportive family helps a lot!) However, it does make writing some times physically painful for me because I can't retrieve the appropriate word.

4. I'm story driven. I want to know all sorts of stories and love to tell them. My life isn't complete without them, seriously.

5. I have a very annoying tendency to flip arguments around and see both sides. This will result in people ranting about something and me going "on the other hand...." (It's also a good one to have in some ways, but I suspect sometimes people want to punch me.)

6. I prefer to think intellectually over emotionally, but when my emotions overwhelm me I'm pretty much useless.

7. I'm an INTJ, a virgo, and my Enneagram number is 3. (I'm VERY much an INTJ, btw.)

8. I love to help people, giving people presents and make people happy.

9. My childhood dream was to be a fairy godmother (like from Sleeping Beauty) or to be Santa Clause.

I don't think I'm up to this one right now - I've just got too much going on - but the The Fandom Snowflake Challenge looks pretty awesome. So if anyone isn't going to have a crazy January (everything I've seen so far indicates the first half of mine will be, sob), you might want to check it out!

Twist on an old one. Give me two fandoms and I'll write you either an except or a summary of a crossover between them.

Bonus option: Give me a fic-verse and a fandom (or two fic verses) and I'll do the same.

Guys, those of you who have (or have at some point) paid for an account may want to check to make sure your payments haven't changed to autorenewal. According to a number of commenters on the latest news post this has been an issue.

There are so many crappy Harem-Lelouch fics out there that I'm tempted to write a good one (respectful of females involved, Lelouch being more himself than a gary-stu and more than just girls) just to make one that doesn't drive me crazy.

Proposition: A new law. Anyone who releases a Holiday album MUST put at least One. New. Holiday song on it. With the amount of albums that come out, we're likely to get at least one decent one, right?
