I went to U of I. There were parts of it that I enjoyed, and the culture wasn't that bad. But I can see parallels. For me it was more a matter of looking at the way education was going, and deciding not to get involved in public education as a teacher. It was obviously going down the tubes, and that was decades ago; it's infinitely worse now. So too, many colleges. :/ I couldn't stop it. I could sure get the hell out of the way.

Poem: "For Whose Sake"
This week there will be a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies and has 25 new verses. Stylet enjoys a shower and Valor's Widow starts cooking. "The Higher a Monkey Climbs" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Pips reveals his attraction toward Joshua Tull. "Two Foxes" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. The Iron Horses tell Kenzie what happened to the gaybashers. "A Haven in a Heartless World" belongs to Diminished Expectations and is now complete. Read about family in adverse conditions.
Weather has been mild and mostly sunny. It rained yesterday! :D Currently blooming: dandelions, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, white and red clover, morning glories, frost asters, torenia, purple aster, sawtooth sunflowers, pink sedum, purple sedum.
Well, I had 455 pins. And I ended up with 450 files. 3 of the pins were moved to a different board ("other diy") and I encountered one pin that apparently didn't exist. At least pinterest couldn't find it. That leaves one pin I missed saving. Damn. I'm not going to check which one I forgot. Especially considering the many duplicates I found. Pinterest tells me if I try to pin an already pinned pin, but either it's a newer feature (newer in relation to that board) or if two people make a pin from the same website, they're considered different pins and it therefore doesn't realise that.
I just take it to mean that the image is super inspiring :)
It's also fascinating to see how the board changed. The early images (aka the last ones I saved) where people, nature and steam punk with a few buildings/rooms, in the middle I also had some with lamps of some kind or another and most of the newer ones are buildings (a lot of old/abandoned ones with a few modern, architectually "strange" ones) and a bit of nature.
It made me realise that I need more people on that board. Unless I'm mistaken, I started it because I found pins on pinterest that threatened to give me ideas for stories. At the very least, that's what it's for now (still). Giving me ideas for building locations, worlds, sceneries and characters.

Title: Flora Friends
Rating: PG (partial nudity)
Fandom: DCU, Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairings: Poison Ivy, Baby Groot
Content Notes: Created for the drawesome Challenge #8: Non-Dominant Hand. I used my left hand to draw with pencil and paint with watercolour. I have never tried to use a paintbrush with my non-dominant hand, so I'm really happy with the way it came out. It did take me twice as long (if not more!) than it usually would though, plus my wrist kept cramping from the unaccustomed movement. Also, my name is signed backwards, because for some reason it's easier for my left hand to write stuff mirror-imaged. :b

Sweet, shy Steve Rogers had had it! He now held the dubious title of oldest unmarried man in Oakdale — and a virgin, to boot. It was high time he shed his scholarly shell and unleashed the temptor within. Problem was, he didn't know the first thing about men, let alone seducing one….
Heartbreaker Bucky Barnes had been away for twelve years, and boy, had things changed! The innocent boy who once had tutored him in math now was a man in need of his help… to snare a man! He'd always admired Steve, but his stunning transformation was too much for any man to resist — even a sworn bachelor like him...
Adapted from The Oldest Virgin In Oakdale by Wendy Warren
It doesn't help that I quit all three CSI shows around the same time, back ca in 2005/2006. I quit a lot of shows in that time.
( My hightime for crime dramas (and how it ended) )
Anyway, lately I've been craving some CSI: Miami. I've still got my DVDs, so one of these days I'll put it on. Naturally, I only thought of it today at 10:30pm. Not exactly a time to start watching a series. Okay, a movie would be an equally bad idea.
Instead of some good crime time, I've spent the weekend watching Youtube (the channels I follow) and Netflix (nature documentaries). I also did some cleaning, cooking and typing up. Oh - and I brought quite a bit of stuff from my balcony to the cellar.
Length: ~5,050 words
Spoilers: None, we’re pretending everyone gets along.
Synopsis: Maybe it was just the marathon of bad sci-fi movies from last weekend, but he had a feeling something was a little off here.
Author’s Notes: For the “isolation” entry at hc_bingo.
Disclaimer: I do not own these characters and am making no profit from this.

Today, while typing up a PoA AU that leads to Hermione and Harry pointing out how far behind muggle studies is (in regards to fashion, science, etc), I have the last line "Dumbledore likes 80s make up"
It somehow makes me think about Dumbledore walking around looking like David Bowie or KISS.
( A bit more about typing up, fic organisation and decluttering... )
Maybe I need to do a kind of masterlist (I already have one for my published stories @ love_sacrificed) where I list just how many individual stories I have per fandom (and maybe include their main plot categories).
But that's for when I'm done typing up. At this rate, I'll probably need the rest of the year. Hopefully I'm not producing more new stuff to type up than I manage to type up...
