This whole situation pisses me off.

A couple weeks ago my friend and I were set to go to an event at the uni. I was running late but I went over to her house to get her and she was like, "I'm waiting for my housemate."

So we waited for him to eat his leisurely breakfast.

Got there as the event was starting and missed out on picking up teaching planners, which if you don't are like fucking gold in this profession. A FREE ONE COULD HAVE BEEN MINE BUT INSTEAD I HAD TO WAIT FROM SOME IDIOT HUMAN I'D NEVER MET.

And at that moment, I thought to myself, "This guy's on my shitlist."

In one week he's done a few more things to move himself up this shitlist. I've told my friend that he's on my shitlist. And yesterday, she told me that their other housemate was trying to cause drama in their house by telling the guy not to be friends with her.

And instead of saying, I don't know, "fuck you don't cause drama in my house," he just went and told her about it and she's like what do I do?? and I'm like, "you don't do anything. you as a house should be like, no drama. and also your other housemates should PROBABLy stick up for you."

like I don't have fucking time to babysit you. This girl is your friend and someone is talking shit about her? you don't stand for that. So up the shitlist he goes again.

and yesterday, we met for fondue Friday, the best day of the week, when we bust into the chocolate fondue and put on movies, she brought her housemate. And I was like ???? no???? go away??

but we fed her housemates and he left for a bit and came back and then today, she has planned a get together and going out to dinner at the beach. and me and my housies are like, cool, they can get us back for all the pizza/fondue/brownies by giving us a ride so we can drink.

none of them have stepped up. one was like, uh if i have to? but it's like, srsly? u are begrudging a ride when you stayed in my house all arvo/evening and got chocolate fondue and delicious 5 cheese pizza for free???

i'm probably going to end up driving because i'm not supposed be drinking and should be drinking more water, but i'm pissed off for my bf who made the pizza and my housemate who should get to be driven somewhere.

Do you connect or identify with any particular fictional character? If so, which one and why? If you could be that character in their world for one day, what would you do?
When I was a kid Sailor Moon was my least favourite Scout, but as I've grown older, I've come to realise that I am just like her! If I was going to be in her world for a day, I'd do just what she does, fall down a lot, cry, and appreciate my friends.

ugh I don't even know.

This account is permanent, so I will be here forever. Lurking. Reading your updates and not commenting. Definitely not commenting. Sorry about that. :(

This icon is a pretty apt descriptor for my life rn. #gradschool #nanalife I'm 27 and I live in student housing ~ currently surrounded by the screams of partying 18 year olds. Ah uni. Clearly I am living the dream.

In other news, I watched Jupiter Ascending and it was amazing. I will probably see it again for sure. &heart;.&heart;

I want to be back so I'm going to start doing the book meme again to kickstart some blogging.

definitely the best fic I read last year was DILF. I've read it like 1000 times. It's amazing.

The best book was definitely Surrender to a Wicked Spy by Celeste Bradley. I love romances that subvert common tropes or have kind of strange premises. Dane is a member of an important political club that's supposedly the power behind the throne and he is waaaaaaaaaayyyy too busy to have sex. He's got to keep his reputation free from any hints of his father's treasonous activities. Also he's huge. Too big for ladies. So there's that.

Meanwhile, Lady Olivia finds herself married to a huge Viking god who doesn't seem to intend to go along with the ravishing she's imagining. Olivia tries seducing Dane with some unorthodox methods, but Dane remains deeply suspicious of women after a French spy led his father astray.

SO GOOD. You don't even know. Read iiiiit.

book meme againCollapse )

The words "a big heart" came up a lot in Welcome Caller, This is Chloe and I wasn't quite sure what it meant. She cared about people? She'd do anything for the people she loves? Chloe is always willing to go the extra mile for people she cares about, even if they've been shitty to her (and people are shitty to her). I think might be more apt to say she has a big mouth AND a big heart though.

After the Christmas break of her junior year, Chloe's entire social life changes. Her friends won't talk to her. Whispers follow her wherever she goes. But the kicker is she has no idea what happened. Her home life is dealing with her stubborn grandma suffering from dementia and to top it off, she has a giant project to do that amounts to community service. She ends up working for the school's radio station. She manages to carve out a social niche there and boost the numbers by hosting a talk show.

This was an enjoyable book! The romance is interesting and real and Chloe is a really engaging protagonist. I was most affected by her female friends abandoning her, however. She had two best friends who threw her over and it was extremely affecting, especially since there is no real reason for it. As a depiction of female friendships, it was horrifying. However, she does find new, better friends, and things work out quite nicely.

I don't even fucking remember what I read in March, damn it. I'll just post what I've been reading recently.

So I read this book last week and it was fantastic. Victorian romances aren't my favourite....the time a little too stodgy and they remind me of the endless Victorian Lit classes at university and how fucking depressing Tess is. So, I usually stick with Regency. But I wanted to try something outside my norm, so when I found these Scottish Highlander books, I thought, Perfect.

Let me tell you, they are perfect. I kept thinking this through Ian MacKenzie's story, Mac Mackenzie's story, Cameron's, and Hart's. In the first story, we're introduced to the MacKenzie family, Scottish aristocrats who have bad, bad reputations. Ian is rumoured to be mad, due to his sudden silences, bluntness, inability to make eye contact, and extreme intelligence. But he's really just mad about Beth, a sassy widower who draws his attention. She. Is. Awesome.

These are great books for all the right reasons: they're sexy, well-written, plotty(ish), and full of humour. I enjoyed reading all of them, especially the first one. If you're looking for a sweet and sexy read, Jennifer Ashley's Highland Pleasures series is highly recommended!

The Kimchi rating takes plot, characterisation, my opinion, and of course spice into account.

IDEK. I read everybody's entries, even if I don't comment. I swear I do (hahah I wrote sweat first, which is fucking true it's humid as balls here)! Anyway, so what has been going on since last I updated?

- I have been reading a fuckton of YA and romance and of course, YA romance. It's been very fulfilling and thought-provoking. So I should probably update my 52 books ;n;
- Fifty Shades of Grey. HAHAH.
- I went back to a straight perm because I could not handle the curls. My hair never fell out until I brushed through it in the shower and it just ended up clogging my drain, which is seriously so gross. So now it's straight again. Exhibit A:
Gentleman-Teacher makes an appearance

- I'm on tumblr 24/7, which is why I never update here. SRY ;n;
- Tomorrow I am going to see The Dark Knight Rises and I am the most excited girl in the world. Seriously. SO EXCITED.

I will be better at updating and commenting. Promise! (My students always pinky-swear when they promise it's cute.)
