And Soon I Will Have a Place to Live!!

Thursday we move into the new apartment--sooooo happy about that. Residency hotels are nice and all, but I look forward to not living out of a suitcase. And having all of my stuff again. (I have felt super homeless without my books. Dude. Seriously.)

Anyways, I've been studying for my language exam in two weeks. I think I'll be fine, it's just been stressful and frustrating. Basically because my AS prof decided to give me a B instead of an A, I've spent the last two months working on my Italian rather than my reading list or any number of other things. I suppose it's kept me busy and less depressed about moving than I could be, but still--augh!

Completely unrelated, I am madly in love with Pacific Rim, the fandom for which seems to be only on Tumblr and AO3. Where's the LJ love? Sheesh. My latest find is this really great article on Raleigh and Emotional Intelligence. I'm promising myself that when I have an address again I am getting all of the PR books that are out there--which, not many, but I neeeed them. The bits I've seen online make the novelization look both really interesting and well-written. And the comics seem to not suck!!

Hmm, what else. Oh, I decided to skip Worldcon because money and because I AM homesick and just want/need to spend less time in Texas--ripping the band-aid off, basically. See, when I was coming back from Virginia after going to RBS with Todd, I basically started crying pathetically and couldn't stop, and he was very patient and sweet about it, but I also need to not completely emotionally breakdown on people because of choices I made. I need to get my real life started again.

Which, sideways of that, advice for finding like-minded people in new areas? I've been surfing Craigslist and such like looking for things to do, but I need to find my own clutch of people (Scott has his whole community here, but I need people who do things besides hiking and skiing and such).

ETA: This made me laugh until I cried, for real.

Huzzah for the new place!! Hope the move goes well :DDD

Also PACIFIC RIM God I have far too many feels - kinda dived into the kink meme and have not really surfaced - so much fic that is good, and also heartrending due to the family issues all over this film :'D

Not so much GIANT ROBOT FIGHTING though, which I am surprised by xD

Me wise, I found my (insane) sport and work colleagues etc, but you could always try any book groups or crafty groups etc :DDD

How do you find book and crafty groups? *she asked innocently*

Probably through craiglist :'D That or maybe posters up in the library or craft shops?

(Will be trying this tactic this end anyway, so will let you know if it works :'D)

Yay for the new apartment! *squishes you*

Loved Pacific Rim, and although I haven't read any canon based fic for it, there have been at least 3 Erik/Charles X-Men crossover fics already, so I'm happy. ;D

I can help with that! :D My favorite so far is the For My Family (We Are The Resistance) series. Then there is a different kind of drift which is pretty much pwp, and finally there is this one, of which the first chapter was only posted yesterday, Synchronicity. I could have sworn there was another one, but I can't find it. :/

Hey, bb, here's another new WIP, Edge of Resonance.

Have you been keeping up with Synchronicity? Because it's AMAZING so far. :D

Getting B's sucks, doesn't it? I've gotten two so far and each time I felt personally affronted, even though I was expecting them. I wish I knew how to meet new people, all of my friends consist of people I went to grade, middle school and college with, and all of those ended a LONG time ago. If you figure it out, pass the info along my way? Also, congrats on the move. Are you going to work or just focus on school for now?

The kink meme has a friending page, if you're looking for for 'likeminded individuals' and alwaysenduphere has started pacificrimfic! - despite the name, it's basically ALL THE THINGS Pacific Rim, hopefully there will be art and rec posts and meta and .. everything! It's a new fandom, and wide open spaces beckon, don't cha know :DDD
