sabulana: (Nothing can take me apart)

Why is it so hard to tag lately? Sephiroth's responses are there in my head but it's all...wordless emotion and expressions and I can't find the words to adequately communicate it all.

And don't even get me started on Tas. Bloody kender. -_-

I'm starting to look forward to next week but...

I need to hear back from my boyfriend rather urgently. It is edging ever closer to Friday and I would like to know whether I'm staying at his sister's to help look after the kids this weekend or not. He said he would phone her and ask and then phone me but my last missed call off him was before I even reminded him to ask. So...he's forgotten again. I guess I should call him but it's too late now. He won't be in bed but his parents will and I'll have to call the house phone - Iain talks too much for me to use the landline to call his mobile and I have no credit on mine. It will simply have to wait until tomorrow or Friday. I assume he will call on Friday. He's been busy with Gateway to Work in Pallion this week and next so I don't know what time I'd have to go over his.

Of course, I might just be flailing over nothing because he'll forget to ask until it's too late and I can't. Because his sister really should have more warning than a day - or, worst case scenario, me just turning up on the doorstep - which I wouldn't do anyway. Yes, I'm welcome round there but I don't want to impose.

Anyway. Probably time I thought about going to bed. I've been so tired lately and I have work in the morning.

Can't quite believe I finish on Friday. Amy completed my leaving paperwork yesterday. Guess they can't wait to be rid of me. XD Not really though. She asked Darren how I've been doing and he had nothing but nice stuff to say - reliable, trustworthy, gets the job done and doesn't have to be told twice, gained a lot of confidence - but I'm still quiet. It's not a bad thing because I speak up when I need to and it's just part of who I am.


There's been another girl helping out these last couple weeks. I had thought that she might be my 'replacement'. But she has a placement interview tomorrow elsewhere and the other woman who might be helping out has an interview on Friday for a job. So they might be left without all help from Friday onwards. >_> I feel a bit bad. Even with help from me and anyone else on placement, the admins are really rushed off their feet, always busy and always pestered for everything. But I guess there will be new help soon. I hope some new people are sourced for placements there - before Friday. I would help train them up in what to do. I was going to do that with Danielle but she might be going somewhere else now so... *shrugs*

...Damn it, I want a proper job.
sabulana: (cute sephy)

Damn but the silver yo-yo is chatty today. -_-  Shut up, Sparkleroth! Let Tas get a word in somewhere damn it!

Made a start on Ragnarok advertising. It was on my week-old to do list. 'Bout time I got around to it. I'll finish it tomorrow. I'm too tired to mess about with formatting right now.

Jobsearch day today. Heard back from a couple places to tell me I was unsuccessful. Then we had yet another exercise on 'Equality and Diversity'. Pointless but better than memorizing newspapers for hours on end.

Made a little more progress on Nightwind's story. He still hasn't gotten back to me after I emailed him. Had a random text saying he wants to switch jobs and go work for Barclay's the other day though.

...and it's his birthday soon. I don't have the money for a present. I saw the perfect thing a while back but by the time I had the money for it, there weren't any left. ;_; I guess his present will have to be draft chapters of his story. Maybe free. He did say he was paying me to write it but we haven't discussed charges yet. *shrugs*

Now. Gonna finish one more tag and go to bed already.
sabulana: (Default)
So...I felt mostly alright this morning. Still a bit woozy and lethargic. If my mother wasn't home, I'd have attempted to go to work and gotten sent home by now. So I had breakfast, went back upstairs to play some KH2 - I know, I know, I should have played P4 but I wanted some Soratiems~

Headache started getting worse. Turned it off just after beating Jafar and decided to make my headache worse by coming on the computer. <3

[ profile] piecesofworlds  opens today so I've made my first post there. I already had it written so no worries about "thinking ICly gives me headaches!". I should probably come off hiatus at DC and reply to posts in Ragnarok but~ still taking it easy today.

The game I mentioned in my last post? Still working out the kinks there. Arwen helped with the FAQ last night, coming up with some questions I'd not thought of and helping me decide what the answers should sometimes but I'd appreciate any other help. this space? XD

The How's My Driving? Meme
It makes me nervous to do this. I've never done it before but...any way in which I can improve is good, right? >_> I both hope and fear that someone, anyone, will comment.

Managed to finish Albel's tags. Tasslehoff is all up to date too. I just have Sephiroth left, owing Cloud and Boriane. I know vaguely what I want to write but it will have to wait until I get home tonight. I won't be late, since it's 'Jobsearch Day'. I both look forward to and dread these days. One one hand, no stree of actual work. On the other, there is very little to do if I can't get on a computer. Plus, I think there's a new guy in my group and I get the feeling he's going to pester me about working in the same place as I do my course. He thinks I'm completely mad. Why would I want to come in every day, even if I am working and not sitting in a classroom environment, doing pretty much bugger all?

The secret is...I actually enjoy it. >_> Yes, I complain and I get stressed out and things but I still enjoy it at the end of the day. It's been a really good experience for me so far.

So...don't worry about me, alright? I'm fine.

Oh~ And Sephiroth got accepted into [ profile] piecesofworlds . I'll be finishing his other account tonight but the game isn't opening yet until there's at least one more player so I don't think it's going to be another distraction just yet. ...I still have to finish work on Cloud's app too. >_<
sabulana: (Default)
I posted the app for Sephiroth at [ profile] piecesofworlds .

I guess that means I should finally get around to adding icons to his other journal.

Um. What was the username again..?

Anyway, it will have to wait until later. I am off to bed.

I'll tag back the three tags I currently have left in the morning. If I have time. I might not. Might get one done and then think about the rest for the rest of the day. ...This journal post is acting strange. I suddenly remember why I prefer updating my journal in Firefox but I don't want to log out of Sephiroth's journal on DC at the moment so I'm using Internet Explorer. *hisses* Evil thing. I hate it but it suits for tagging with my less acitve characters like Tasslehoff and Albel. I must admit though, that despite my infrequent posting with Albel, he is a strong muse. Tasslehoff is somewhat weaker but no less enjoyable. But now that I have canonmates with him, I fear doing the wrong thing more than before. I will not be put off this time though, I swear. I'll keep the little guy until the end. He'll not get killed off though. Reading his canon death broke my heart enough without having to write another version myself. Besides. What can top getting stomped on by Chaos? Although a decidedly less pretty version than the one Vincent turns into. XD

Anyway. I'm off to bed. Goodnight, all, whatever time zone you are in. <3

sabulana: (DO NOT WANT)

It is pouring with rain outside. I've been to work and come back to get my stuff to go to Iain's but I don't think I want to  go. I'll get soaked on my way to the bus stop, dry out a little on the bus and then be soaked through by the time I get to his from the bus station. My cold will no doubt get worse - hell, it probably will anyway after the brief time I've been outside today already. I should call him and explain rather than wait for him to call me but I'll wait until I've finished the couple tags I owe for Sephiroth. Then afterwards, presuming he doesn't make me feel guilty enough to go outside, I'll do Tasslehoff and Albel.

Most of my stuff is ready to go though, so whenever the rain lets up, I'll go out. Whether that is tomorrow or today though, I don't know. I heard it won't stop until tomorrow. But I think I have a party thing to go to tomorrow or it might be next Saturday. Some family gatherng for one of my boyfriend's neices where I get to stand awkwardly in the corner and resist the urge to throw all the noisy toys into the road outside.

Work wasn't too bad while I was there. I just sorted out the timesheets in my own little corner, which took all four hours I was there. -_- Not the most exciting four hoursof my life, I must admit. But the conversations around me were quite entertaining. ^^; And they keep getting my name wrong. >_> I'm not Amy.

Of course, when they finally do get my name right, I'm going to change it to Sally. XD

sabulana: (Distracted)

My boyfriend has surprised me this weekend by allowing me to use his computer. But I suppose it means he does not have to allow me to use his 360. *sigh* I want to play The Last Remnant but until he lets me on, I can't. I got all the way up to exploring the Numor Mines with Emma last time I played but I forgot to save and took on more enemies than I could handle, only to find my last save game was in the catacombs. I'd like to get past that part now and get on with a few sidequests before heading back to Athlum and continuing the story...or I could just rush through it because I really do want to play Emma somewhere.

Anyway~ Due to my sudden;y having computer access, I've come off my hiatus at [info]daisychainrpg and have managed to catch up with most if not all of Sephiroth's tags - I'm still debating whether it is worth responding to a few journal comments but I believe all log posts have been responded to. I have also managed to intro Tas earlier than expected. Albel is all caught up in Ragnarok - although he only had a couple journal comments.

Since I do suddenly have some time to RP on my hands, I have also put down a reservation for [info]piecesofworlds for Sephiroth. I figure I've got enough time on my hands to manage it. It's not actually active yet, due to lack of players, but I like the concept behind it. Seph, when I finish his app, will be taken from Nibelhiem, just before he actually gets to read about the Jenova Project so he won't have actually gone crazy.

There are a number of other games I'd like to play at but I'll likely overload myself if I app at them all. Besides, I'm not even sure who I'd play. There are a number of characters I am interested in playing, not just Sephiroth. I just need to do canon reviews or finish the game before I app anyone. >_> Unless I attempt to app one of my OCs? I do have a few, some I've had for years that have had quite a lot of time to develop in my head. But they might just annoy people.

Goddess knows they annoy the crap outta me...

Anyway, I gotta be getting on with apps now. I'm still working on Cloud's app for
[info]ragnarokrpg  as well as Seph's app for [community profile] piecesofworlds

sabulana: (OMGWTF?!)



Next app period for DC is the last. I absolutely have to get Tas's app in on time now. And I'm over a week late for Cloud's app for Ragnarok. *flails*ECO I'M SO SORRY PLEASE FORGIVE ME!!!!

Andandandand I have workstuffs, which is...nice. Ish. But...It takes me away from...everything. And all I hear from my boyfriend is a promise that his first paycheck will go on my laptop but I won't get it until August at the earliest. GUESS WHEN MY TEMPORARY PLACEMENT ENDS.

Yeah. That's right. August.

So by the time he gets my laptop, it won't matter anymore because I'll be home all the friggin' time.

Except I'm gonna have to sort out times to go over to his parent's place to get his post and visit his sister. I'm apparently not allowed to drift away from them. XD She insists. I don't want to drift away from them either. I enjoy going over there most days, when the kids are quiet or at school. >_> No, really. I love 'em. I just...don't understand them and their values. They're very materialistic, even though they can't really afford to be. Just a couple of weeks ago, Aiden got a new phone, simply because he wanted access to Bluetooth. He's eight freaking years old. He has no need for a mobile phone! But his parents relented. And I was never like that. My mother calls it our 'built-in anti-chav gene'.

Andandand...augh. Monday. Don't come. Please. It's gonna be so...AAAAAAUUUUUGH. I have lots of paperwork to sort out. Alright, so the first part should only take about...fifteen minutes, max. Just putting it into two piles. Not hard. The next bit is more complicated because I have to sort everything into three piles and then by date and then file them away in the right place. Last time I did that, one file I had to get was in the cellar. IT IS FUCKING CREEPY IN THE CELLAR. I NEVER WANT TO GO DOWN THERE AGAIN.



I have to tag. I must tag before the end of the day. I don't want to hold people up. Alright, so I'm kinda...hiatused because of the christening next Sunday. I don't know if I'm looking forward to that or not. Boring church service? Definitely not? But the twins are adorable. I've seen their outfits already and they're going to look so beautiful. <333333 And...there will be a party afterwards, I think. Food, anyway. I'll have to be social. So many conflicting feelings! Do I want to go or not? Well, it's too late anyway, because I already said we'd go and I have a dress and everything sorted out. I can't get out of it now. Even if I said I didn't want to go back in May, I'd still have to anyway. It's of those things I have to do.

Speaking of things I have to do, I have to find the time to go to the bank on Monday too. I've been unable to afford lunch most of this week (even made myself ill on Wednesday because of it. Well, I was ill anyway. The lack of food just made it worse.) because the Jobcentre didn't put my money in my account. Instead, they sent me a giro. Well, two, really. Total comes to over £100 but that doesn't matter because I wasn't even home to get it. So I've been unable to eat because of that plus I can't actually afford to get into town on Monday either. That means I can't afford to get to work or the bank. >_< Kinda a Catch 22 right there. I need to borrow money off my mother but she doesn't have enough for herself either. Basically. I'm screwed. Unless I walk, which will take me more than an hour. -_- Basically...I'm screwed.

Andandand...I need something to cheer myself up with now. Brownies, coffee and fanfiction. Gonna have to sneak past the cat though... >_>
sabulana: (Nothing can take me apart)
I have given in to temptation and reserved Tasslehoff at Daisychain once again. I'm going to reread a few DragonLance books and avoid the film like the plague to get his character back. Shouldn't be too hard. I managed it last time.

I am, of course, also working on the Cloud app for Ragnarok. It may take a while. >_> I just hope I can manage four characters on my current schedule. Oh well, there's nothing I can do but try.

And also save for a laptop. Steph has recommended I get go to the 3 store and get one of their contract phones so I can get a free laptop plus dongle thing so I can access the internet everywhere. I may just do that for £20 a month. I am continually being told I am in need of a new phone anyway, although I am not sure why. The one I have works just fine. I can send and recieve calls and texts. What more does a person need?

Anyway. Had work training this week. They altered my jobsearch day though from Monday to Wednesday. That means I did not get as much work experience as I could have had. Especially since Thursday became a half-day. The tutors and people all went off to South Shields for some reason so I got sent home at about 1pm.

I've been on the phones, mostly. Normally, that would be my worst nightmare but the phone doesn't ring often really and most things are easy to deal with. Just JobCentre advisers ringing to book interviews and start dates for clients. I've also had to doa little photocopying and filing, nothing big but it's better than sitting at the desk, bored out of my mind for hours. I've taken to writing between calls but I ran out of paper. I did kind of write a mock app for Cloud while I was bored though. >_> He's not happy with it. XD
sabulana: (cute sephy)

So...I decided to play - or try to, anyway - Cloud over at [info]ragnarokrpg but then I kinda remembered I need to reviewthe original game canon. I got the disc working for a bit this morning to now I can get through Mount Nibel, which is awesome. Except that Cloud kinda got slaughtered by a dragon and Aeris refused to target him for Pheonix Down use so then the dragon killed her and Vincent while I was trying to revive Cloud. >_> Which sucks. He's the idiot with the Revive materia. >_<

And~ I got the University expansion for Sims 2 so now they can have an extra life stage - Young Adult. I've created more of Organization XIII as YAs but the Org coats are YA compatible so they're mostly dressed in various goth outfits. Might change that later but I just wanted to get them done quickly and get them moved into the dorms. I sorta wanna play again but I have to tag at some point today. I should have tagged on Friday, I know


sabulana: (Madness feels damned good)

Attention all~

We are in desperate need of RPers over at [info]ragnarokrpg! For anyone who doesn't know, it's a multifandom FF7-based game, set just after Meteorfall. Any characters from any fandom are permitted~ Although Sephiroth is mod-run. ^_^ We have a very small cast at the moment and it's not too active. So please, if anyone's interested, please join~ Or at least think about it. All the information you need is over at ragnarokmods so feel free to check it out~

In other news, I have a cold I am recovering from. My boyfriend failed his first attempt at passing the Navy's running requirements by 25 seconds. He'll manage it next time, I'm sure. I've also been playing lots of Persona 4 and Magic: The Gathering lately. Persona 4 is a lot more enjoyable, mostly because I get my ass kicked at Magic.

sabulana: (Nothing can take me apart)

I wonder how many times I have to mention I have a headache before my boyfriend will stop turning the music up?

Anyway~ I finally managed to get Albel started on Ragnarok. How long ago should I have done that? -_- I swear, it not that I'm lazy. I just get caught up with Sephiroth, y'know.

...I'm hungry. But Iain's not going to want to eat until he gets past whatever it is he's stuck on on his game.

Did I mention I have a headache?


sabulana: (himeno not amused)
I feel pretty terrible today. I stayed up late and then when I finally got to bed, I kept waking up whenever my boyfriend moved. -_- Then the alarms went off and actually got me up. I turned them off an was all prepared to climb back into bed but no, apparently that's not allowed.

So I'm extremely irritable today and also half dead.

But I played Star Ocean a little. Synthesized a couple items to make Sophia, Fayt and Albel's weapons stronger since they're my main party. Sophia's got the highest level actually, at 75. She's gone from being one of my most hated, useless characters to the one who is usually the only one alive at the end of battle. -_- Adray is still pointless though. I haven't tried to level him lately so he's stuck at 47. Later, I'll try to beat those harpy things and get on with the game.

...Wasn't I supposed to try bringing  Albel to Ragnarok by today? Um... >_>
sabulana: (Jenova)
I'm so not well right now. ;_;  I've got an awful cold, my boyfriend kept me up all night watching QI on his computer and now I'm hungry, have a headache and am generally not in a good mood. And all this despite my little...retail therapy earlier. I went out and bought a book. It's called The Hickory Staff. People from this world ending up in a fantasy world. Apparently. I'm not that far into it yet. So far, there's just a lot of people dropping dead, going mad or both. I'll give you the final verdict when I've finished it.

I bumped into someone from college too. Don't know if anyone from college remembers Peter. I certainly didn't. Well, I knew I'd known him at one point when I bumped into him in the Graphic Novels section of Waterstones. I just didn't know his name. >_> But he knew mine. I felt so bad~ But he didn't show any hard feelings and I gave him my email address so he can reccommend me books to read. ^^;

And I'm all excited about [ profile] ragnarokrpg too. XD I'm apping Albel there now. ^_^ brother is now home. At fucking last. >_>

So now I'm gonna go catch up with stuff.
