Just found out about Virginia Tech. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

If you want updated news, @CollegiateTimes, the VT newspaper, is updating their Twitter constantly. My newspaper @DailyNeb is updating, too.

Halfway through writing this, I realized that I was writing it just as I would put together a news story. It's becoming dreadfully apparent that I spend far too much time in the newsroom. So let's try this again.

I got to see City and Colour last night! Words cannot express how amazing it was. I have been in love with this band since I was sixteen and I was really afraid that they'd be a disappointment, but they weren't. At all. In fact, they were the best band I've seen live. Ever. 

Flailing below the cut )

More or less, all of this comes down to the fact that I love them even more now than I already did. Which, honestly, I didn't think was possible. 

Well, that's enough flailing for now. I'll just go back into hiding....

Dear Tammy,

I knew I'd found my asexual soulmate when I made a tumblr reference and you got it immediately. 

Love forever, 

Also, if anyone is up for a good cry, you should watch this video.

The local newspaper here published a 9/11 memoir I wrote in both the newspaper and online. I feel really, really happy. It's the first thing I've ever had published in a professional newspaper. If anyone is interested, here's the link.

I have officially decided to take a break from LJ for an indefinite amount of time. Knowing me, it'll probably last two days but I'm hoping it will be for longer. I've come to the realization that I've grown too attached to this place, come to rely on it too much as a way to get my emotions out there when really I should probably keep those things to myself. The world doesn't need to know. And then when KJ... left it really hurt and again I realized just how codependent I've become to this place.

As a way to try to get away from that, I started writing in my personal journal again, writing real life things like I've been writing on here for the last couple months - and it feels good. 

But I also need to do this for other reasons. I have a boyfriend who I love and with whom I only have a couple months left before we go off to separate universities and I want to be able to spend as much time with him as possible. I will also hopefully be working a lot to save up money for school next fall. (I just got back from registering for classes and I really, really feel like University of Nebraska is the best choice I could have made. It's so exciting.)

On top of that, I finally got my iPhone, which is totally amazing. And it really has all the internet I need on it, along with a lot of other stuff. So I'm really hoping to be spending as little time physically on my computer as possible.

Even though I will be leaving for awhile, though, if any of you ever need anything or want to talk, a lot of you have my phone number or the best e-mail to reach me at is lightcatastrophe@gmail.com.

I love you guys a lot - and I WILL be back. Stay in touch.

Only love

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that

I love you guys and miss you. I'll be back tomorrow. Newspaper night. :( Have a random gif. <3
justfornow: ([AI] {Kris/Allison} Contented snuggle.)

I have had the best past couple of days. :) I am feeling very happy and content with life right now. I have to say that it's a wonderful feeling. (The boy. Oh, the boy. <3 Holy moly. I don't even know what to do with myself.)

Hope you're all doing well. I'll catch up on flist and everything probably on Wednesday. Love you all. <3

Full disclosure: This post is really just an excuse to use my new favorite gif. :D

Justin: It’s more than that. It’s where we made love for the first time.
Brian: That wasn’t love. I just gave you a rim job and fucked your brains out.
Justin: It was love to me.

I desperately need to find some place to watch the American version of Queer as Folk online before I do something stupid like spend $114 on amazon for the series box set. 

Or. Oh wait. I found it for $75 here.

Someone please save my bank account.

My new celebrity crush: Andrew Garfield. I really wanted to see Never Let Me Go, but now that I know he's one of the main characters I will probably hyperventilate until I get my hands on it. I mean, just look at him. So pretty. 

I also did the unthinkable and joined The Social Network fandom. There went the last of my free time. It has, however, helped me deal with my lost iPod. So. That's a good thing, I suppose. 

Well shit

Why did I get into journalism again? :/
justfornow: ([Stock] {Panda} Contemplating)

Let me introduce you to Sean. He is a panda. But he has no panda friends so he has to stare longingly at Danny's panda calendar all day.

-In other news, I finally uploaded pictures of my new house on Facebook. I'll be back with those later. 

Also. I might be working on an accent meme since so many of you are so conniving. I'm demanding a panda out of this.

To read:
1. Harry Potter
2. The Chronicles of Narnia
3. The Lord of the Rings

I'm living in a rather fandom-y place right now, so here's a bit of flailing.

One of my New Year's resolutions was to reread all the Harry Potter books. So I bought the few I was missing (which, ugh, now I have some paperback and some hardcover, this is upsetting) and began. As a kind of personal project of mine, every time I finish one of the books, I'm going to recap my favorite parts. Keep in mind, I pretty much love everything, so these are my favorites of all. 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Danny's observations on the book that started the great adventure,  )

Other HP fandom-y stuff:
I ran across this quote on tumblr today. I really love it (probably because I'm on a Draco/Tom kick, but whatevs). 

If the question is whether Draco would have committed the murder, my answer is no. I don’t think he would. He had lowered his wand. He was prepared to come over to Dumbledore’s side. I hope you see that there’s some of that same feeling in Book Seven, when he does try to protect Harry. But he’s in too deep. Like a lot of characters, he’s not a hero. There’s a real moral cowardice to Draco. But is he wholly bad? Absolutely not. - J.K. Rowling

Danny's very short review of The Dawn Treader lies herein. Plus, there are very pretty picture. Very slight spoilers. )
-In completely random, real life news, I have three of eight college apps finished.

I want a couple tattoos. I've decided that I am totally in love with just black outlines.

Pretty tattoos under the cut. )

I don't have any tattoos yet. But I feel like both of those are ones I wouldn't regret and they kind of mean a lot to me. I probably won't do it but it's nice to dream.

-I swear to God I was trying to be productive and do homework. Unfortunately, the college website is down and so is Blackboard, so I cannot do homework. Fail, life. Really.

-Went out shopping with my mother today. I got pretty boots and a peacoat --and a queen-sized bed and frame. It cost me $400, but it was totally worth it. It's huge and pretty and it's a pillowtop. (KJ, when we move in together, maybe we can just share? XD It's big enough...) I also bought some other stuff for the apartment. I am SO excited now. No joke. :D 

-Currently, I am in my favorite little coffee shop. It's super pretty and decorated for Christmas. And I have a peppermint mocha in hand. Talk about perfect, really.

-Speaking of perfect, [livejournal.com profile] everything_inme posted this beautiful Grease dream cast, featuring Darren Criss as Danny Zuko and Kristen Bell as Sandy. It also includes Elijah Wood, Dianna Argon, Zac Efron, Logan Lerman, Kevin McHale, Emma Stone and many others. It's amazing. 

-Anway, I think I should attempt homework again... Goodbye, my lovlies. <3
