ANYTHING that has to do with a group I mod (a question/comment/complaint/whatever) please post over here NOT AT THIS POST. This post is for adding friends only. Thank you!

If you would like to request a graphic, please post it here at my graphics journal. It's not that I don't mind them, but I guess a graphics request makes more sense at a graphics journal. ;)

FOR MY ICONS GO TO fallenotbroken

FOR MY FICS GO TO latenightmuse

Just checking in

My default icon was a Christmas tree, so that tells you how long it's been since I've been here. But, like I said in my last post (in November!) I just haven't been on LiveJournal. Tumblr is my go-to site these days, though lately I've been staying away from that because it's much easier to get spoiled for things (*ahem* The Avengers *ahem*) than it was on here, and I don't want to be spoiled for that particular movie.

I just can't give up LiveJournal, though. I've thought about deleting this account, or deactivating it, or whatever, but this is the place where my love for fandom really cultivated. This is where I found a group of people who loved the unpopular ship on a soap opera and met some really great people because of it. This is one of the first places I really felt I could be myself, not the people my friends and family thought I was. It's a very special place for me and I just can't end it yet.

My real life is going okay; my job, though part-time, is one that I love (and that's a first for me). I'm just worried that there's no full-time position in my near future, since the only way I would get a full-time job is if my boss left. And she's made it clear she's not leaving until she retires, which is in about 2-3 years. I don't know if I can wait until then, and as patient as my parents have been with me, I'm sure they want their nearly 30 year old daughter out of the house sooner rather than later. So, if nothing changes in the next year, then I'm going to start looking for new jobs. That way I'll have enough experience in this position to find a similar one.

I've been playing a lot of Sims 4 lately; ever since the expansion pack came out it's been my obsession! It's so much fun and I've also been really into watching Let's Play videos on YouTube. If I had the equipment, time and inclination to do so, I would probably start making my own. But since I don't, I'm probably going to be starting at Sims Tumblr page to post pictures. It will probably have my username erikssiren in it, so if you want you should come check it out (I will probably post a link here, if anyone's interested).

Until my next update

I feel like I've been making a post like this for a while

Not to sound like a broken record, but I am here! I still exist! I can't believe I have been leaving months and months in between my posts lately, but I'm hoping to make a change from that. I want to get back into fandoms actively, as opposed to the passive reblog of things on Tumblr as I have been doing for at least a year.

And I'm back
Lady Lola - Reign

It's been quite a while since I've made a real post, so for any of you who are still around I thought I'd give a bit of explanation.

A lot has happened since my last post. The biggest thing is I've moved back home and have a new job! Things were going downhill very quickly at my old job; by the time I left I was the only one from the original newsroom I had worked with when I started two years ago. I now work for one of the largest news groups in the state and while it has been a huge learning experience, it has not been very positive. It has really made it clear to me how much I do not belong in journalism. So, I'm continuing to look elsewhere.

As I said, I'm back home! It was a bit odd at first, I had been so used to being on my own and had to make it clear to my family things were not going to be the same! But we've all adjusted and it has made me so happy to be back with my parents and my sisters. I'm really hoping I can find a new job that's not too far from them this time.

The third biggest news is I'm going to be an aunt again! My sister is due at the end of this month and I am looking forward to it! My niece, who is now three, is starting to realize she won't be the center of attention anymore and is starting to act out. However, she is one of the smartest children I have ever known so hopefully we can get her to understand that we all still love her the same.

And finally, I am working on a book! Like, I've actually written things. I'm co-writing it with one of my best friends who lives in another state. It's been interesting working around the fact that we can't just meet in a library and work it out together, but thanks to technology we are making it work! I'm really excited about it since it's what I want to do with my life.

So how have you guys been?

So I'm a huge dork

So I got Sims 3 for my birthday and I am now finally getting around to sharing my screenshots with you. They're mostly of my most recent house, which consists of my version of Sims!Klaine.

EnjoyCollapse )

Man up, you're amazing.

Okay, so now that I've watched last night's Glee episode two more times (yes, I have a problem. I'm going to an support group meeting later), I think I can coherently give my thoughts on it.

It does contain some spoilers for future episodes, though I have now sworn myself off them for the rest of the seasonCollapse )

Writer's Block: Television! Is there anything it cannot do?

What is the best new TV series of 2010?


Hawaii Five-0, hands down. I mean, there is nothing about this show I don't love. It's entertaining, it has a hot cast, it's action-packed and it has an awesome theme song.

Really, there's just no reason not to watch this show.

Another 20in20!

So...I have another 20in20 entry to share! This time it's Dean/Cas for Round 2: Couples at ilove20in20. There are also 16 extras and a Lucifer/Gabriel banner.

Teasers:




The rest are here at fallenotbroken

Also, has anyone else listened to the OLC Recording for "Love Never Dies"? I have some issues with the way they've treated Raoul and Meg, but it has some gorgeous music and if it ever comes to Broadway and a tour starts, I'd try my best to see it!
