Some things of note, though:

It's been almost a whole year now since I moved to LA! I can hardly believe it. It feels simultaneously longer and shorter. I've made some new friends! No one super close but it's been great nonetheless.

In September I FINALLY found a job! I'm now a research assistant at a commercial mortgage brokerage. My favorite coworker, Olga, is also a big hockey fan, so how could it possibly get better? Well, I could really be making a bit more-- that's something that I'll have to face soon. I wouldn't mind staying at this job for a considerable time but I'm barely making ends meet right now so something's gotta change.

Anyway, because I got a job, I finally switched my car title, registration, and license over to CA, which made me feel like a super-amazing adult (for like a week or two). (Previously the car was still titled to my parents, so.)

Back at the end of July, we adopted two adorable kitties from a shelter and they have been the sweetest (and the most annoying), but they've been a constant of awesome in my life.


Dublin is the dark tabby; Pekoe is the calico.

Unfortunately, Pekoe was just diagnosed with FIP, a disease that presents in cats under two (Pekoe will be 9 months at the end of January) and is terminal in pretty much all cases. She's hanging in there but she hasn't got much longer. I'm so glad to have had her but I'm so sad I don't have more time with her. She's just the sweetest kitten. <3 It's all extremely bittersweet.

In other happy news, though, NHL LOCKOUT IS OFFICIALLY OVER! It's been sad and boring without hockey. I miss the Rangers so much. I went to a charity game here in LA, which was fun, and then to the (more serious) charity game in Atlantic City when I went back to NYC around Thanksgiving, and then to an ECHL game in Ontario, CA (60 miles away from LA). But it's just not the same. I MISS MY BOYS! These last few weeks I'd even started to watch football! (I'm currently watching the Denver Baltimore game as I type! Ahhhh it's been so intense!)

BTW, it's also been a little over a year since Rich & I started dating and ahaha, it's still going well, considering it's a pretty long-distance thing. I'm really happy about it. =D

Anyway, I don't do New Year's Resolutions, but if I did, this year's resolution would be to get back into posting and reading on LJ! So I hope to be around a lot more than I have been!

Soooooo, let me know what's going on with you guys! Or ask me questions about moving to and living in LA, or whatever else you're curious about! At the very least, go check out the SEX IS NOT THE ENEMY FICATHON! (It's a 500-word minimum, so you KNOW you have time to contribute!) Sign-ups are still open, and prompts will be assigned on Wednesday!

I'm back! I've been meaning to post for a while (I FINALLY GOT A JOB OMG YAY), but I realized it's time for the SEX IS NOT THE ENEMY FICATHON!

I'll have a post up for signups on Thursday. In the meantime, would you mind starting to spread the word? I'd hate for this lovely little fic fest to die out. <3

If you haven't already done so, please feel free to post your links to the original post or here.

Round-up post will be made tomorrow!
osaraba: (dS rayk working)
Hello all! I just checked my calendar and realized that the Sex Is Not The Enemy FICATHON will be closing soon!

Works are due on Monday night!

I'm in Los Angeles now (which still feels extremely weird to be saying), in the US Pacific Time Zone, and I'll start composing the round up post on (my) Tuesday morning. So you're welcome to post links to your works before the deadline, if you like.

I also want to thank everyone in advance for participating! I love the SINTE tumblr and this ficathon, and hope to keep it going every year!

<333

SINTE signups are officially closed and prompts have been assigned!
I'll definitely be accepting late requests, though, since I'd like to encourage as many sign-ups as possible.

UM UM UM so I think I'm leaving on my "trip to the West" on Sunday 1/22. IT'S TOO SOON! I feel like I don't have enough time to see everyone I want to see and also finish cleaning out my parents' basement.
osaraba: (spn OTP)
So I moved out of my apartment on Jan 1st and am now sort of living with my parents and occasionally staying over at friends' places. But then I got sick for like 5 days and that was all at my parents' house. I barely moved from the couch and watched SO many music documentaries, it was kind of the most awesome thing ever. =DDD

You'll be glad to know that Liz and I just settled on the road trip route and itinerary to LA-- which she'll be taking with me!!! I'm so excited to be going on a cross country road trip with my sister, you don't even know! We're both pretty much grinning like idiots over it. Ahahaha, only downside? She never actually learned how to drive. So, there's that.

Whatever, this is the plan for my ROAD TRIPPPPPPP: \m/

NYC > Pittsburgh > Louisville > Memphis > New Orleans > Ft Worth > Albuquerque > Phoenix > LA


If you're somewhere on this route and want to meet up, let me know!!!! =D

Aaaand, this is sort of late on my part, but I've been sick and actually without internets except on my phone while at my parents' house--

Please help spread the word: SINTE FICATHON SIGN-UPS are due on SUNDAY!
(Late sign-ups will definitely be accepted!)
