Anything to do with the TV shows PGSM, especially Rei/Minako, 7th Heaven, or Full House. I also love cats, babies/children, and food or nature photography. :)

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.

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! 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.

Some of my favorite shows:

Jem and the Holograms

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!

Hi guys!  

My laptop is still a piece of shit and so is the desktop, but  I might have a job soon so I can pay for a new laptop.  I'm waiting for a call back from Goodwill about a position I applied for a few weeks back and followed up on earlier this week.  They're still looking at my application they said and they'll let me know.  I am keeping my fingers crossed and I'm totally hoping...  I need the money! lol Please send some good vibes my way or whatever.

The plot bunnies have been driving me nuts the last couple days.  ;)  I haven't been able to write much of anything, but the evil things have been begging me to.  I swear they're even begging me to write a Jem and the Holograms fic.  I don't even watch that show.  XD  I've only seen a few episodes here and there because my brother watches the reruns on Discovery Kids I think the channel is called.  So I don't know if I should write anything for it.  Then again, I'm up for a challenge every now and then.  Just not sure whether or not I'm familiar enough with Jem to pull it off.   My brother thinks I should.  Hehe!  He's always rattling off his ideas to me, even if they're all over the top silly and I tend to write more dramatic stuff.  I will get back to my existing fics eventually.  I think I'm gonna wait until I have a decent computer first.  I'm not allowed to save much stuff on here so it's better to hold off. 

And is it just me or was DA acting up tonight?  It kept logging me out when I went to write this post and when I checked my messages.  It was like that for me for like 2-3 hours and it just started working again a few minutes ago.  Weird, huh?  DA has never done that to me in the 2 years or so that I've been here and then...BOOM!

You're welcome! :)  I will let you know when I have some ideas.  I'm still new to the Jem fandom.  lol  But I do know I wanna see more of Kimber and Stormer scenes.  The episode where they first became friends is what got me into the show.  My brother watches it and I joined in and now I'm hooked.  Some Aja/Craig and Shana/Anthony scenes would be good too.

You're welcome, and thanks!  I will keep writing, then.  I actually have my first Jem fic in the works.  lol  I just have to come up with more ideas.  I only have the first scene or two planned so far and plenty of random stuff.  I started watching Jem just recently btw.  My little brother got me into it.  XD  Kimber and Stormer rock!

I've been a Jem fan since 1985 a long time! I drove my mom nuts about watching the show and getting all the dolls and other merchandise. Kimber is my favorite character, if you need someone to bounce idea's off, I'm here! I've been developing a Jem fanfic since 2000 but I can't get the words out, I see the story line but I just can't get it out on paper.

lol I wasn't even born when Jem first started.  I was born in September of '86.  Ha ha I drove everyone nuts with Sailor Moon like you did with Jem.  :P  

I appreciate your offer.  Yeah, some ideas would be great.  All I have so far is Pizzazz and Roxy throwing darts at a pic of Eric Raymond and Jetta arguing with Roxy/name calling until Stormer breaks them up.  Then they hear the guard dogs going nuts and go to check it out, and they find a little girl who has just sneaked onto the property (an orphan who lives with drunk relatives, but she ran away because the relatives are so drunk that they pay little attention to her and can't care for her properly, so she's been taking care of herself).  Pizzazz freaks out on her, but Stormer takes her in and this little girl starts bonding with her.  Awww!  :)   Not sure of the direction it'll take yet though, but omg, just picture how she interacts with the other Misfits, especially Pizzazz.  XD  Kimber is in this fic a lot too, so are the rest of the Holograms and their guys and lots of kiddos(not just foster girls.  They have their own kids here too, except Kimber and Sean so far).   This is pretty much a family type fic, which is what I write best.  

I know what you mean about not being able to get the words out.  Same problem here.   I can help you with your fic if you need it.
