So I spent most of spring break going "hey I should really update dw/lj/etc and like, let people know I'm alive/what's been going on in my life" and then getting distracted by something shiny or going back to attempting to get homework done or what have you so now its the end of spring break and I probably should be in bed but I'm trying to get better at this whole updating thing damn it :l So here we go :D

Cut to save people's flists )

tl;dr - Life is busy but okay, summer is looking busier all the time, I can't wait to be done with classes and I STILL NEED MY COPY OF WILD AT HEART DAMMIT

Oh and I saw The Artist. It was really good! :D A bit darker than I'd expected, but good :D

Today I worked a morning shift at the vets where there were a grand total of maybe 12 dogs and 3 of us, so I got up at 6AM to spend roughly an hour caring for animals and then another 3 spraying down cages, taking the doors off cages, scrubbing the doors, squeegeeing the water out of the cages and off the floors down the drain, and then putting the doors back on the cages because its after the holidays and we get to disinfect the entire. hospital.

(Oddly enough, my arms are not very sore. Which would be awesome, except I have to work tomorrow morning as well and I have a nasty feeling I'm going to wake up and my arms will go "ahahahaha DIE D<" which will be unfortunate)

I then got home, ate, and spent a good part of the evening helping my dad insulate our attic, continuing a project that had actually started last night. This consisted of me periodically shoving large blocks of white fiberglass stuff into a machine that chopped it up and blew it up a tube that went through my brother's room, my closet, and then into the attic, while listening to Energy Song and Fight Song on repeat and having a dance party in my garage (when not shoving blocks of fiberglass into a machine). Its the way to spend a friday night, people, I highly recommend it :D

Our attic is now filled with white fluffy fiberglass stuff that looks a lot like the fake snow they use for Nutcracker performances and will theoretically keep our house warmer and our heating bill lower. I can't quite tell if its working, because while my room is warmer, its also about 45 degrees outside despite being Western New York in the middle of January. We should have about a foot and a half of snow. We don't. But it looks really pretty and the project being done means that I again have my room to myself instead of sharing it with a ladder and tubing and several boxes of tools, and my father is not spending inordinate amounts of time half in my closet. :D So I call it a success.

Other points of interest!

~Discovered on new years that a "molten" cake, specifically molten chocolate cake, is actually just a cake that hasn't been baked all the way through. I had always been under the impression that you put extra chocolate or something in the middle that then melted but I made them with a friend on new years and apparently not.

Really yummy regardless.

~Finished GANTZ, finally! I watched the first movie sometime before Christmas and then got distracted and kept putting off watching part 2 until today. It was really, really good: fascinating premise, great acting, the suits were beautiful - a little more gory than I usually like, but not awful. My only complaint is that I found the ending really unsatisfying :/ I loved the whole thing up until the last like...20 minutes? Half hour? Idk it felt like they introduced and set up a whole lot of threads that were never resolved. I can only suspend my disbelief so far, I suppose.

~Still no word on my thesis draft >.> I should probably look it over again before I get back to school but it's breeeeeeak and I'm laaaaaaaazy ~.~ Maybe I'll do it on the train.

~Slowly working my way through D no Arashi :D very slowly, but going, and would be working my way through Shukudai but my home internet is depressingly slow :l

And....that's about it. :D how was the start of everyone else's weekend?

While doing away with the "restricted content - are you sure you want to view this" warnings was a definite plus, I barely update my livejournal as it is, which means this is almost certainly going to fall by the wayside fairly soon, which is a shame because it's awfully pretty >.>

Ah, well, what's done is done is done, and who knows, maybe this will provide some incentive :)
