So. It's been a while since I posted, and I haven't been keeping up with my flircle either. Please post a comment here with anything important that I should know from, oh, the last six months or so. I miss and love you all.

So I'm homeless now. I have been for three months. The longer I waited to post here about it, the less I knew how to say it. You've all been so helpful and supportive, both financially and emotionally, that I foolishly felt as though I'd failed you somehow. But that's bullshit and some of my best and oldest friends are here and you deserve to know what's up.

It turns out that homelessness is not the worst possible thing that can happen. You wouldn't know it from the way society freaks the fuck out about it, but it's true. It's not even the worst thing that's happened to me, and I haven't exactly had a rough life. I mean, it's not fun, but I've been more unhappy.

So. Please comment to say hi, fill me in on your life lately, whatever's going on, and I'll try to get back into posting here at least once a month to let you know I'm still around. ♥

I follow about a dozen people on Plurk (also remindmeofthe, if you want to friend me there), and a few of them frustrate me so.

None of them follow me here, as far as I know, so it's safe for me to vent.

A few of them look down on tumblr and tumblr politics, which I can understand! I know that tumblr politics can be in rigid black and white and how aggravating that can be.

But I also know how young tumblr's userbase skews, and I remember how it was when I was a teenager, how everything was black and white and how I knew theoretically that shades of gray existed, but I couldn't practically grasp their existence.

And I tell you what, I wish like hell that I'd known what a lot of kids on tumblr know now. I wish I'd known about feminism and how racism really works and about transphobia and a million other things.

I understand that these things on tumblr can be chafing sometimes, that they are applied so relentlessly it seems like there's no room for gray, but you know why? These people are kids. They don't know yet. They don't have the life experience yet to understand that shades of gray exist.

And as adults, we need to understand this. They'll get to where we are. Not all of them, I know, some people never grow up. But a lot of people do. They'll get to where we are, and they'll use all the amazing things they've learned, and if we're lucky then we'll all change the world.

In the meantime, there's no point in shitting on them, no point in whining about them, it makes me so angry. But there's no point in my expressing that either. So I do it here instead.

(Note that this is only about people I follow on Plurk. If I don't follow you on Plurk, it ain't about you.))

So hey, I have a much less whiny RP-related issue to ask about.

I have a fun character, Ree ([personal profile] srs_screenwriter), for whom I've been using Kat Dennings for a while. Dennings has just the right attitude, she's fun, but it's all fucked up because she's white and Ree is clearly presented as canonically biracial. Her mother is white and her father is Puerto Rican; Ree describes herself as being visually racially ambiguous.

Practically speaking, it's fucking hard to find a PB of color, which has been my justification for a while now, but I can't let it go anymore. Using a white PB for a character of color is whitewashing, pure and simple, and that's not okay.

So. Can anyone point me at a place where I can find a more appropriate PB for Ree? She's late twenties, wears glasses, not especially curvy (those last two are negotiable). I'll make icons myself if I have to, but I don't know where to start. Help?
remindmeofthe: (Default)
So. As of my last entry, I had a job and a home.

Well, now I only have a home. I made what was in retrospect the colossal mistake, as hours were suddenly and tightly cut from the schedule to the point where I wasn't making enough to live on, of warning my manager that I was looking for another job. I meant the best: I liked K and I didn't want to blindside her by leaving.

Guess I should have guarded myself a little closer, should have taken warning from the way K gossiped to me far more freely than is acceptable from a store manager.

Because after that, my hours (set by an assistant manager, A) started getting tighter with every passing week, until last week I was scheduled for ten hours, a five-hour shift for Saturday and Sunday each. I went in on Friday to get my paycheck, checked the schedule, and discovered that not only was I scheduled for four - FOUR - hours next week, but A had taken it upon herself to change my schedule that week without notifying me, taking away the Sat/Sun shifts and giving me one four-hour shift for that very Friday.

I can't even begin to count the number of unprofessional things going on there. So, since A was the manager in charge that day, when she had a moment, I quit.

And she had the nerve to tell me that maybe I'd get more hours if I wanted to work.

Kids, the teenage girl who stood around doing nothing and who refused to smile at customers was getting more hours. I rest my fucking case.

So I've been applying to more jobs and had a ton of interviews in the past week, and I have another on Wednesday, but in the meantime, I'm scared to death about not being able to pay my rent in October. I just got this place; I don't know what I'll do if I lose it. The thought of having to start all over again makes me so tired.
remindmeofthe: (Default)
So hey. I haven't posted in a long time. I'm more active these days on tumblr and at Plurk (remindmeofthe at both). But a while back, I posted a desperate plea for help, and a lot of people responded, so the LEAST I can do is update you all on my situation now that it's finally settled.

I ended up living at home for a while, which was about as stressful as I'd feared it would be and didn't do much to help the suicidal ideation. I did, however, during that time, get back on my antidepressants, finally get a job, and resumed therapy, so at the beginning of July, I escaped alive with brighter prospects. ("Escaped" is kind of melodramatic, I know; my mother isn't actively abusive, but her perspective on how depression works and her own problems with stressful issues in her life made moving out feel an awful lot like an escape. I love her and she loves me. We just need to not live together ever.) From there, I spent a month and a half on my sister's couch while I searched for a place to live, which finally FINALLY came together last week.

My situation isn't perfect; I'm job searching again because the hours at work have been cut so severely that I'm already worried about October's rent. But it's so much better, and the help I got from everyone, both emotional and financial - I credit you all with helping to keep me alive, frankly.

Today I was sitting in the library, checking my email, and there was a young pregnant woman near me calling around for help with her own situation. She has no income, she's in danger of losing her apartment, and just to add insult to injury, the place she's been getting her bus passes from has changed the system and now she's facing having to do a lot more walking everywhere, despite her pregnancy. I wasn't actively listening, but you know how it is; I couldn't help hearing. I had just made a deposit at my bank next door and was in better shape financially than I'd expected. Not great shape, I'm still going to be eating a lot of pasta and rice in the next couple of weeks, but better shape. Certainly better shape than this young woman. And I thought of all of you, and how you'd reached out when I needed it, and how knowing you cared helped every bit as much as the money you gave, and I went back to my bank and made a small withdrawal. I gave that money to her, just enough to cover ten bus rides, knowing from my own experience that the kindness of the gesture would give her a boost just as much as the money would.

I'm not telling you this to brag, but as a way of saying thank you. You saved me, and it's important to me to be able to pay that forward, because we all need to look out for each other when we can.

I'm not sure how much I'll be using this journal anymore. I reblog a lot on tumblr and I Plurk pretty regularly, so you can keep up with me there. I do still read my flircle on a regular basis, even if I don't comment much these days.
remindmeofthe: (Default)
From basically my entire flist, and god knows we all need memes like this to come along a little more often:

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.



I know I should do a status update post, and I will eventually. When I have the brain for it. For now: I am not yet homeless, having money I can offer to people in exchange for a spot on their couch is a big help, and my fucking birthday is next Thursday, what the fuck. Also just the fact of all your support in whatever form you could give it has made the difference between feeling like I was screaming into the void and thinking that maybe I'm gonna be okay. Thank you.
remindmeofthe: (Default)
So wow am I hungover and sleep deprived and just generally lacking in the energy to write this post properly the way you all deserve, but I wanted to post something to let you know that I am alive and I intend to stay that way.

And also that I have never used the phrase "here's the sitch" before in my life and I do not recall deciding to use it to title last night's post, but. There we are.

Thank you all so much. I'll try to write something more when I feel less inclined to throw up.

I've been drinking, which only means that I have enough courage to tell someone about my situation.

The place I'm living in wants me out. I have a week. I am looking at homelessness.

Why homelessness? Most of my immediate family hasn't got space for another person. The only one who has space is my mother.

Over Christmas, Mom and I had a fight. It wasn't much of a fight, short and small, but it made it clear that she doesn't think my depression is important. Assuming that she would let me live with her? I think I would kill myself within a month. Not because she doesn't love me. She does. But she has had so much fucked up shit to deal with herself this year that I don't think she can handle my shit on top of hers.

So. My depression is bad. But not, in my fucked FUCKED opinion, bad enough. I don't want to die. I don't want to kill myself. It would be easier if I did. Then I could just do it and be over with. That would be nice. But I don't think it's going to happen.

But I still need so much help. I don't even know what I'm asking for. If you want to donate money, I'll give you my PayPal info. If you are a goddamn saint and willing to give me a place to live for an indefinite period while I try to get my shit together - well, you probably don't exist, but if you do, PM me and we can talk.

I'm broke and fucked and scared and I don't want to die but I don't know if I have any other option and help me? Please?

Week of December 2:

Television:

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 1x11 (And then I discovered an amazing show just in time for it to go on a month's hiatus. Yay?)
Elementary 2x10 (I didn't realize exactly how much I'd come to love Marcus Bell until this episode.
Meganebu 1x10 (This was one of the episodes where I was so into it that I was genuinely startled when the end credits started. [Yeah, I know that doesn't say much for the show's plot structure.] I am going to miss having Meganebu to brighten up my Sundays after it ends.)
Free! Iwatobi Swim Club 1x03 (You know how you get into a thing and then you wander off into fandom and you think you remember all the reasons you loved the thing, but then you revisit and discovered you'd actually forgotten most of the awesome stuff? Yeah.)

Books:

Torn, Cat Clarke (Look, I am totally up for a story about a prank gone wrong ending in murder and the protag's subsequent struggle. Just don't offer me a supernatural angle when there really isn't one, and for the love of god don't choose the least satisfying ending possible.)

Week of December 9:

Television:

Sleepy Hollow 1x10
Agents of SHIELD 1x10
Elementary 2x11 (And then all of my shows went on hiatus at the same time. Is it January yet?)
Meganebu 1x11 (next week is the finale what am I gonna doooooo)
Mystery Science Theater 3000 10x09, "Hamlet" (My all-time favorite episode for ten years running. I mean, in retrospect, a lot of the humor is problematic and some of the jokes are a little on the pandering side, but the production is mesmerizingly awful, and when our boys nail a joke, they nail it but good. There are lines I can't not say regardless of the production I'm watching. "That is not wormwood would you shut up.")

Books/Short Stories:

"Darkling," Alexandre Stone (Also known as our own Flynn from Milliways! And I would have liked this story even if I didn't know her. You can get the Kindle edition at Amazon, go check it out.)
Ultraviolet, RJ Anderson (In which a girl who believes she has killed someone with the power of her mind ends up in a mental hospital NO COME BACK. You know all those tropes you associate with stories set in mental hospitals? You won't find 'em here. I've gushed about Anderson before, here and on tumblr, and I'll do it again. She does her research and writes about delicate subjects with care and sensitivity, taking great pains to present her characters as people. It makes all the difference in the world between a problematic novel and a refreshingly sincere one.)

Doctor Who, "The Day of the Doctor" (That was the most engaged I've been by the show in a long, long while. I mean, it had all the usual problems a Moffat episode has, but it also had all the stuff a good Moffat episode has, and I'm actually kind of excited to see the show take this new narrative direction once Capaldi has properly arrived. Oh god, please don't get my hopes up just to dash them cruelly upon the ground.)

Elementary 2x07
Meganebu 1x06

Books:

Bossypants, Tina Fey

Movies:

The Purge: (If you've heard that this movie threw away all the potential of its premise - a night where any and all crime is not only legal but encouraged - in order to focus on a rich white family you won't care very much about, you have heard correctly. I really wanted this to be interesting and thought-provoking and ask hard questions with no real answers, and instead I got a carelessly written POS that tries to have its racist cake and eat too. AND I embarrassed myself by not recognizing Ethan Hawke. Fail all around.)
+1 (Yes, that's a title. This I watched because there was one actor in The Purge whose performance caught my eye, Rhys Wakefield. I hope Mr Wakefield continues to make a career of playing guys whose creepiness comes to light under the right circumstances, because he is excellent at it.)

Week of October 21:

Books:

Killing Mr Griffin, Lois Duncan
The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made, Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell (Contrary to one might expect of the title, this is not a cashgrab in the form of petty gossip and cheap jokes at Tommy Wiseau's expense. It's actually a really fascinating, brutally honest [and often compassionate] character study/biography of Wiseau by possibly the only person who came close to knowing him in the years of The Room's conception and creation.)
Allegiant, Veronica Roth (Wow, am I ever glad my interest in this trilogy is casual rather than fannish.)

Movies:

Haunter (You know those stories about girls meeting girl ghosts, a la Stoneword? Kind of like that, but from the ghost's perspective. Saying any more would spoil it, but I highly recommend it.)

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

Hermione Granger

"I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed."


You are Hermione Granger, Harry’s best friend and brightest witch of her age. Hermione is quick-witted, vigilant, and somewhat bashful of her talent. She is the ultimate perfectionist and seeks to do well at whatever she puts her mind to, no matter what it may be. Her skill with magic is just as vast as her knowledge base, which intimidates almost everyone she meets. Hermione’s weakness, however, is her heart; she may base many of her conclusions on logic, but in matters of the heart, she crumbles. Hermione becomes anxious and paranoid in matters of stress, especially if Ron is involved. Her love for Ron clouds her judgment at times, and it is in this that you and Hermione are similar. Yes, you are smart; yes, you are courageous; but there is no denying that you have a soft spot. Buried within you is a selfless soul. You are truly a remarkable individual, because while you are both intelligent and sophisticated, you are far from conceited. Unfortunately, your brain gets in the way of your kindness, which is why people think you’re a little hardheaded at times. Don’t worry about what they think, chickadee. You just like to be right.



In short, you are more:



Cautious than impulsive


Mature than immature


Modest than arrogant


Weird than normal


Introverted than extroverted




Your polar opposite is Sirius Black.

NOTHING OOPS well not nothing just nothing I'm willing to admit to so much bad yaoi manga heeeeelp

Week of August 26:

Television:

Chobits, full series (except for the recap episodes. So, okay, turns out Corpse Party was a gateway drug and now I'm dragged back into anime for the first time since my foray into the medium like twelve years ago. What's awesome now, though, is that stuff is so much more available. No more the days of enduring dubs of random quality because finding subtitled shows was like pulling fucking teeth [and when they did turn up, they were more expensive to buy as we still didn't have a DVD player at that point], or buying sketchy third-generation fansubs on VHS from a dude at the comic shop [yes, really], or hearing of a title that sounded amazing but I could only get hold of three episodes or like volume six of the manga. Now, not only can I find anime and manga sources on the internet, many of them are actually legal! And subtitled anime? Fucking swimming in it! Digimon 02 is available subbed now on Netflix. NETFLIX. So anyway, Chobits was one of those titles I wanted so badly back then but could only get bits and pieces of; when I discovered that Netflix had it subbed, I devoured the whole run in two sittings. Was it worth the decade wait? Nnnnnot really. It's fun and all but I was hoping for a little more exploration of the whole "are computers programmed to be people in fact people?" premise. But I did finally, finally get to watch it and that is fucking awesome.)

Podcasts:

Welcome to Night Vale episode thirty, "Dana" (DANAAAAAAAAAAA that is all.)

Week of September 2:

Television:

Kinmoza!, 1x01 (Anime in which a Japanese girl goes to England on a sort of mini-exchange program, befriends the daughter her age despite the language barrier, and leaves; years later, Alice shows up at Shinobu's high school, having learnt to speak Japanese and excited about getting to live in Japan with Shinobu and her family. The scenes set in London are epic Engrish and the view of British culture through a Japanese lens is intriguing and makes me want to watch more to see where it goes. On the other hand, Shinobu is annoying as fuck and I'm not sure I want to put up with any more of her, which is why I haven't tried the second episode yet.)
Free! Iwatobi Swim Club 1x01-1x09 (The other exclamation pointed anime on offer this summer, however, is awesome. It has OTT drama and enjoyable characters and is funny as hell AND AND AND it is specifically designed to cater to women!! It is about a high school swim club, thus making the presence of wet, half-naked, toned, muscular boys extremely important to the plot, and it is all about the female gaze. All about. The female gaze. When was the last time you saw anything dedicated to the female gaze, let alone an entire show? Doesn't do much for me personally, but oh my god it is so so so nice to watch something without having women's bodies and body parts constantly shoved into my face as a blithe reminder that many many many people do not consider me a real human being because I'm a woman. The boys will survive some objectification. It's good for 'em. By which I mean: the misogynistic portion of the anime fanboy fanbase is squealing with rage and it is HILARIOUS. I would love this show even if it weren't good. Which it is! I recommend it with all my heart. You can even watch it legally here! Ad-Block will take care of the ads.)


Books:

"How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea," Mira Grant (for all my whining, I can't stop reading the damn Newsflesh stories when I come across them. This one is easily the most lighthearted of them all, lacking a lot of the shit that pissed me off in all the other ones, and doing crazy things like including queer characters who not responsible for bringing the plague onto mankind! There's even a casual mention of a legal polyamorous marriage with three partners. Plus, zombie kangaroos! I also like the discussion of Australia's response to the zombie apocalypse, which basically boiled down to: "Oh look, something that wants to kill us. That's new and different.")
remindmeofthe: (Default)
I am slowly rejoining life. I applied to a few jobs! I read a book! Later I might even do some laundry! I helped some with cleaning out Grandma and Grandpa's house last week, too, and let me tell you what. Two packrats living in the same house for sixty-plus years? On one day there were like six of us working for a few hours and we didn't even finish cleaning out the attic.

I liked working on that. It was time with family, and it meant I was helping my mom and her brother and sister with a task that was so much more emotionally fraught for them. They'd just lost their mother and now they were cleaning out the house they'd grown up in. I think being helpful is one of my coping mechanisms.

SO YEP media consumption! Still pretty light, but I'm getting back into the swing of focusing on things that require more attention span than tumblr.



Week of August 12:

Television:

Danganronpa: the Animation 1x06, "Return of the New Century Galaxy Legend! O Armored Hero, Stand Upon the Earth! #06 (Not) Normal Arc" (I'm pretty sure most of that is the chapter title and not the episode title, but it's kind of hilarious, so I'm including it anyway.)

Corpse Party: Tortured Souls 1x02 (the amazing ending of this episode is even more amazing, and kind of heartbreaking, with subtitles. Oh, Morishige. Each spinoff and adaptation of the game's story - seriously, there are like four different mangas and two games that take place in alternate continuities - finds a slightly different way to screw you up and I fucking love it.)

Books:

Orange is the New Black, Piper Kerman (Gotta read the book first, you know. I've been in the room while my housemates watched the show and it's clearly fantastic, plus I've heard good things from everywhere else ever, so it was time to read the damn thing so I can get started marathoning already.)
