lol The Jem cartoon has this band in it called the Limp Lizards.  o.O Pretty interesting how they let that fly past the radar, considering that 'lizard' is slang for a certain body part.  :P Another thing that somehow got past the radar:  The first couple lines in the Holograms' song "Who is he kissing?"  XD Not that I mind, though.  Jem is awesome.  :)
I have finally started a pre-write of my new Jem fic and I wanted to share some info about it, without spoiling everything. Warning: References to events from the TV series!

It is centered around a 6 year old girl named Gabrielle who is taken in by the Misfits after she runs away from her dysfunctional and alcoholic aunt and uncle who almost always leave her to fend for herself.  She doesn't recognize that they are actually the Misfits at first though.  She forms an especially close bond with Stormer who takes on kind of a motherly role.  The interaction between Pizzazz, Roxy, and Jetta and Gabrielle will be interesting to see.  Oh man, the insanity!  lol

In addition, there are three sub-plots. The first is about Jem and the Holograms as they raise their families.  Jerrica and Rio are married with two children, Aja and Stormer's brother Craig have a little one together, as do Shana and Anthony, and Raya has an adopted daughter (I originally didn't know who her love interest would be, but I think that she and this tour guide Luis Geraldo from the Aztec Enchantment episode could really work out well together eventually.  They seemed a bit cozy, didn't they?).  Kimber and Sean have only been married less than a year when the fic begins, but the Holograms soon learn that their big happy family is about to grow.  I have also maintained Kimber and Stormer's friendship and have them collaborate on their music occasionally.

The next one involves Danse.  She is in a relationship with Stefan, the dancer she met from the Zagreb Ballet in Homeland, Heartland.  He is now living in the US with her, as is her father Peter.  He has emigrated from his homeland to escape the corrupt government over there and is practicing medicine again, as he did before that jerk wad (director or whatever he was at the Zagreb Ballet) made him lose his job.  I mostly want to resolve the mystery of what happened to Danse's mother.  Is she alive, dead, or what?  The series doesn't answer that from what I remember.  I'm unsure how to approach this, but I believe Danse deserves closure no matter what the outcome may be.

Finally, this last sub-plot deals with Minx.  The Stingers return from another tour and Minx wants to talk to Rio.  We know how she says she can have any man she wants and flirts with them, but then dumps them when she's bored, right?  Well, her reputation has come back to haunt her and she confides in Rio and looks to him for help.  And no, this help doesn't involve her getting into bed with him.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone here know how to make Jem and the Holograms (cartoon series) screen caps for all the episodes?  VLC only lets me take one shot at a time, which would take forever.  I have no patience for that.  lol
First chapter of my Jem and the Holograms fic is almost completely planned out.  A little bit more fleshing out and I'll officially start writing the fic itself. Outrageous!  :D  Any ideas you wanna suggest for it, feel free to hit me up.
www.fanfiction.net/forum/Starl…  I started a Jem forum on ff.net since they didn't have one yet.  Please check it out!  I hope it'll turn out truly outrageous!  ;)  I am in need of a moderator on there too, since I won't have as much time to monitor it once school starts up, so let me know if you're interested.

Hi! Nice to meet you! I am an Irish-Latvian girl living in Florida. I'm nice, but very shy until I get to know you, and even then I'm still kind of shy at times. I hope to be a pastry chef, or have my own daycare or photography business and live in the San Francisco Bay area (or some other city) someday.

Facts about me:

1. I am a lefty, though I sometimes write with my right hand too.
2. I am mostly a vegetarian. I don't eat meat, but I do eat dairy products, and occasionally eggs, shrimp (or other shellfish), or sushi.
3. My favorite colors are green and blue.
4. My birthday is September 16th.
5. I have Social Anxiety Disorder and ADHD, and have symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder and Avoidant Personality Disorder, but neither of those has been officially diagnosed.
6. My favorite kinds of music: Classic rock/Oldies, J-Pop, Pop, 70s, 80s, 90s, Country (particularly Martina McBride, Shania Twain, Brad Paisley, and Lonestar) and some Disco. I hate Rap, Opera, Heavy Metal, and Screamo.
7. I am obsessed with baby names, even the names of celebrity babies and especially Latvian, Japanese, and Russian names. I dislike anything too over the top (Sha-Diamond, Shatoya, Shithead [sha-teed], Female [like tamale, but with an F], etc...) or trendy/tacky (Nevaeh, Addison, -aiden names, names of cars, liquor, or cutesy names you would give to pets). I like something that's still relatively uncommon in the US, but still classy.
8. I collect coffee/tea mugs.
9. I am learning Japanese, Latvian, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Greek, and Hebrew. Not very good at them, but I've only been studying them for a few weeks maybe, with the exception of Japanese (been studying off and on for about 10 years, and I also don't remember things well, so I still suck. lol), so give me a break. XD If you want to help me practice, feel free.
10. I am a forensics/crime solving junkie. I watch and read a lot of crime stuff, and I even look into unsolved cases online and do a little criminal profiling. I hate seeing crimes go unsolved, especially if they involve kids.

I finally got around to taking my college placement test this afternoon.  My reading and writing scores were 106 or 108 each (I forget which one) and math was 104, which was very shocking.  lol  Not sure how scoring works on these things, though I was told I did pretty well despite functioning on only a couple hours of sleep and not enough studying.  I am terrible at Math usually.  I just guessed on a lot of the questions in that section.  :P

My mom and I met with an Academic Advisor after that to discuss which classes I should take.  The waiting was nuts!  I was able to get into the testing area very quickly and finished the actual test in a little over 2 1/2 hours.  Average is about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  XD Waiting to speak to an Advisor, though, was like a 30-40 minute wait.  I wanted to fall asleep and I even started to feel sick because I forgot to eat breakfast.  But luckily my mom saved me when she bought me a Sprite and a pack of Cheetos from the vending machines down the hall.

Anyway, when we got into the Advisor’s office and this meeting lasted about 30 minutes to an hour,  I originally thought that I’d be doing everything except my Speech class online, but we learned that the math classes  I need actually aren’t offered that way unless they’re half-semester courses, so instead I will be taking math at my nearest campus.   Then we had to speak to someone in Registration to officially sign up.  That took about 10 minutes, which is the same amount of time I had to wait in the Assessment office.  We didn’t get out of the school until around 5:00 PM.  A lot later than we expected.  It was dinner time by the time we left.

I am registered for five classes in the Fall semester: Mathematics II/Elementary Algebra and Survey in Mathematics, plus a Mathematics II/Elementary Algebra lab, Introduction to Composition (English), and Developmental Psychology.  I am also planning to earn a CDA (Child Development Associate) credential and a Director’s credential which will allow me to open my own daycare center or preschool and I’ll need to get certified in first aid and CPR before graduation, but I’ll deal with it once I get most of my other courses out of the way, I think.  Once my financial aid is awarded, I start on August 24th and will be attending full time.

My Jem and the Holograms fic is coming along nicely.  I haven't officially started writing the first chapter, but I have the first scene outlined and it looks pretty damn awesome so far.  :)  I'll try to flesh my ideas out and work it when I can.  I hope to get at least 3 chapters written before my classes start, because I may not have time to write as often then.  If that doesn't happen, oh well.  I'm doing my best.  I am open to a co-writer helping me out though if you're interested.  It's mostly Stormer centric, but the other Misfits and the Holograms play major roles in it too.  It may help keep the updates steady.  I'd hate to see this fic go dead like some of my projects in the other fandoms I write for. 

I'm totally beat, so I'm off to watch more Jem episodes and get my ass to bed.  Later!  :D

Hi Peeps!   I finally have my laptop, including the net, working again thanks to my mom resetting it back to factory settings for me.   I saved my fic ideas and photography to my external hard drive temporarily so I wouldn't lose them, so it's all good now.  I'm happy I don't have to use the slow ass desktop anymore.

The jobs at McDonald's and Goodwill I mentioned in my last post didn't work out.  I followed up on them to show I was still interested, but they never got back to me.  Oh well!  I applied at an RV resort to be a support attendant and the hiring manager got back to me, but I ultimately didn't take that one either.  The fact that it was only like a few hours a week (daily from 8-8:15 or 8:30 AM to open the pool and stuff and then 10-10:15 or 10:30 PM to close the place) just isn't worth it.   I can't catch a bus or get a ride from my mom or sister  for the late shift.  The company is still interested, so I have a chance if another position becomes available there that has more hours and doesn't require me to work too late.  While I'm waiting,  I'm continuing my search for other jobs too.  

I'm gonna try to get back on track with my fics ASAP.   Recently, I've decided to go ahead and write a Jem and the Holograms one.  The plot bunnies kept driving me nuts until I gave in.   lol   I've only been watching Jem since the last month or two, though only about a few episodes here and there at first.  I went back and watched the series in its entirety and I'm currently re-watching it for the 3rd or 4th time.  XD  I totally love it.   The episode centered around Kimber and Stormer is especially amazing!  Love the friendship between those two despite their groups hating each other.   Anyway, my fic is mainly focused on Stormer as she bonds with a little girl who ran away from home, feeling unwanted by her alcoholic aunt and uncle.  The other Misfits are initially against this, but the girl kinda grows on them.  OMG just picture how they'd interact together, and the shit that the Misfits may teach their young charge.  HA HA! Not sure what I should write for that though and I need help on a title before I can post on ff.net, because I suck at titles.   Any suggestions welcome!  The Holograms play a major role too, and I'm maintaining Stormer and Kimber's friendship, just developing and expanding on it further.  

I'm off for now.  Later!  :)

Hi guys!  :)  The last couple of days have been busy busy busy, but in a good way.  lol  I finally got around to getting my Florida ID card.  My old ID from Pennsylvania expired in February but I wasn't able to get a new one at the time. Even better, it cost only half of what I thought it would, which meant I had money left over.   I had $50 on me and the ID was $25.  Yay!  I paid my mom back for shipping something (she told me to use the $8 to buy my own drinks and now we're even), reimbursed my brother $1 for another bottle of Pepsi, and I've got another thing that needs to be shipped.  That's about $6 (I am using money orders plus a little of my own money), and I'll still have a little bit of cash left when I'm done.

I also got lucky job wise.  There was a job fair yesterday that McDonald's did at the nearby Holiday Inn in Orange City, which isn't too far from my home. Surprisingly, the place was empty when my mom and I got there and there hadn't been many people that whole day, and the hiring manager interviewed me right away.  I was super nervous so I was a little hyper and unsure of how to answer some of her questions, but I answered them the best I could.  I kept a good attitude and the lady liked me and said she'd call back to let me know whether I have the job or not.  Hopefully I'll get it.  I need money and any little bit would help.  Still waiting for a call back from Goodwill to see if they want to interview me too, but I need to be patient a little longer.  The suspense is killing me.  It's been like 2 weeks since I called them or heard anything from them.  XD

New photos and fics will be delayed a while though.  I can't upload pics on this computer, so I need to wait until I have a new laptop, but I am not going anywhere.  No worries!
