Thaaaat's right, kids - 22 years ago, on this day, September 22, at 2:22 pm (...yeah, I know; there is a REASON 2 is my lucky number), I WAS BORN.
And the world has been a little more amazing ever since (modesty, what is this "modesty" you speak of?)! \o/

I actually kept forgetting it was almost my birthday, because it doesn't feel like it -- like, it doesn't even feel like September, much less almost the end of it. I actually had a dream a couple of nights ago in which I completely forgot my birthday until midnight on the 23, and then was SO distraught and upset that I actually woke up at 3 AM and had to reassure myself that I, in fact, had not actually forgotten my own date of birth.

So, this year I decided I wanted to take a trip to Boston for my birthday, so, this past weekend, that's just what [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and I did. It was AWESOME - we partied it up at this ridiculous gay bar complete with Jagermeister shots in test tubes and suuuper-muscley male go-go dancers, ate excessive amounts of DELICIOUS food, ran around the aquarium and invented personalities for all (...well, most, anyway) of the animals, and, basically, had a gr8, GR8 time.
And, while this, certainly, doesn't cover EVERYthing awesome we did/saw, I took pictures! So...enjoy those.

For my actual birthday, I'm not doing much, though - I have to go in for my internship, buuuut I told my supervisor I have a doctor's appointment, and so am going to head home an hour early, where my mom has promised to make gyros for dinner, because....well, because I love them.
Then on Friday I'm going to head up to Philly after work, to celebrate/chill with my friend who's there, and then, on Saturday, I think my parents and my brother and I are all going out to dinner somewhere.

....okay, listed all at once like that, it sounds like a LOT. But - idk, all these plans just sort of happened. Also, I still do have to go to work, in the middle of all this!
Buuuut also, WHATEVER, I am only going to be 22 ONCE, right. So, like, why the hell NOT, right.

ANYWAY. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY MY BIRTHDAY (and yes, of course, as always, also Bilbo and Frodo Baggins', and Tom Felton's, and Adam Lazzara's, and Joan Jett's and Scott Baio's and Toni Basil's and Anne of Cleves' [apparently], and AUTUMN's, aaaaand a bunch of other people's, because this parenthetical note is WAY long already)!!!!!!!!

Yeahhh, that's right, I went ALL OUT this year. Possibly, subconciously, to make up for the fact that I made my costume almost entirely out of clothes I already have?? Not that my costume isn't AWESOME, though - because, my friends, I am going as one of these crazy kids (David, if I have to pick, because, um, a, he's my favorite, and b, our hair matches, but I am lacking in the crazy-motivational singing and dancing area!! Also in the Christian Bale area, what's up with THAT). YEAHHH, THAT'S RIGHT. For a costume idea I pretty much only decided on this week, I love it KIND OF A LOT.
So now, trick-or-treat!!:

...thanks?? Well, the amount of candy I come away with seems to increase every year, so I guess I'm really growin' on you guys!! :DD

I'm SUPER excited about today, because I'm going to New York, for the parade!! I've wanted to go for, like, forEVER, and now, since Halloween is a Friday, I can!! \o/

Okay, so, bed now, I think, or I'll end up sleeping through Halloween (that would be HORRIBLE AND TRAGIC, omggg). Everybody, rock your body, have an awesome Halloween(/October 31st/Frank Iero's birthday)!!

Okay, so, the picspam isn't that big, and you've probably seen most of the pictures already (...actually, now that I'm looking at it again, mostly just that second one), so you have another part to your present - and here it is, your very own mini!mix!!! )

Aaaand now, Part 2 - A Collection of Pictures, Featuring Jonathan Jacob Walker (and Some Other Ridiculous Boys)! )

HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN, GUYS!!!! *passes out candy corn*

I still have no idea what I'm doing tonight, but I at least have a costume (I was trying to be Batgirl, but not everything I needed came together in time, so instead I'm Panic!ing it up), so that's something.

And, as we do (haha, so does two years of this meme make it a tradition??):

Also, Happy Happy Birthday, Frank Iero!! You are tiny and adorable, and I love you kind of a lot. And obviously you and your band are on my mind a lot, because I had a dream about you guys last night.

No, I did! See, it was this whole thing - Mikey was just about to graduate from high school, and Ray and Bob played college football, and Gerard was on the staff of his school's newspaper, and Frank...well, I don't know what Frank did, but he was Mikey's boyfriend (I KNOW, I KNOW). I was Mikey's friend, only he got really mad at me because I kept calling him "Mikeyway" (there was a good while where I was just wandering around going, "But that's his NAME!!! What else am I SUPPOSED to call him????"), and left in a huff to find Frankie.
And then there was this thing, where apparently everyone has Chuck Taylors, right, and when you graduate, you're supposed to give them to the person who means the most to you, or something, I DON'T KNOW. So anyway, at one point Frankie's like, "You still haven't given me your shoes, you know", and then there's a pause, in which Mikey looks at Frank, down at his feet, up at Frank again, and then reports, "...they're still on my feet." And then they both collapsed into giggles.
...Meanwhile, I was off running a summer camp with Pete Wentz (and I clearly remember thinking, "oh my god, we are totally the most bad-ass people here").

To distract myself from the HOURS we still have remaining until the results of a show I actually never watched until yesterday but then spent the rest of my night glued to my phone for, I've turned to an Idol contestant from across the globe!!
Let's learn about Anthony Callea!... )

Today, according to IMDb, is a lot of people's birthdays. But only one gets birthday spam! That someone is Sean Maher, who I am eternally grateful to Firefly for introducing me to. ...That sentence sounds like it shouldn't make sense, but it does. I think. ANYWAY! The point is, today is Sean Maher's birthday, and because I love him and he is my imaginary husband, SPAM!!
There is...a lot of stuff under this cut. It's not really looking to make friends with dial-up connections. )

So hay guys, I've been noticing this - phenomenon occurring lately. Which is, people with generally "good", non-embarrassing, sometimes even slightly pretentious taste in music, have been getting into Fall Out Boy. It generally happens the same way, one of their friends plays them some FOB songs, they really like them but try to resist, because it's, you know, Fall Out Boy, but always end up succumbing.

And so, my questionable taste in music would like to say, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, and also I am going to see Fall Out Boy and The Academy Is... and Cobra Starship in concert this summer, and it is going to be AWESOME and YOU KNOW IT.

Also, someone posted a picture of Pete Wentz the other day, and a bunch of the commenters didn't know who he was, and I was all, "Wait, WHAT, in what universe do people not know who Pete Wentz is", and now I can't decide whether I am really pathetic or if the people who don't know who he is are just living under a rock.

There would be picspam, but I don't think I've saved any new pictures since I did these picspams last year (in MARCH, jeez, it doesn't feel like that long ago), sooooo yeah. Sad, but true.

I SHOULD be asleep, and I'm exhausted, but I'm just - not. I don't know, but somehow, whenever I can stay up, I do. Like, my roommate's out for the weekend, and my other apartmentmates are - somewhere, so I'm the only person here. I haven't even been doing anything all night, just hanging around LJ and watching SGA, for the most part ("AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BACK A BRILLIANT SCIENTIST INTO A CORNER!!!!" ♥).

I also rewatched the pilot of Psych, and it only served to reinforce something I figured out watching the rerun of Friday's episode. I already told this to [livejournal.com profile] boheme06, but okay, I really want to pet James Roday (ITSNOTWEIRDSHUTUP). I have this feeling, that if you skritched him in just the right place, he'd purr.

This morning, I had to wake up at 9 (which means I only got 2 hours of sleep!) so that I could go to the dentist, so that I could not only get my teeth cleaned, but also get a piece of my gum cut off (although, to be fair, it was covering my wisdom teeth, and could have become infected). So yeah, all in all, I'm having a fun day.

But! Part of the reason that I was up until 7 in the morning, was because I realized I really, really like Joe Flanigan's - neck area?? Well, like, his neck/collarbone/shoulders (*points to icon*). And so, I had to go on a picture hunt!!
While it's not REALLY a picspam, it IS still the Flan. )

splits_thesky: (spn: jpad: gg otp forever)
Okay kiddoes, here's the deal. So, while I've been moping around and getting all philosophical about my life, I have not, unfortunately, been doing any schoolwork. Like, I've been to a grand total of 4 classes in the past two weeks, okay. And it's not even like the work's that hard, I know if I just actually tried, and spent even half the time I do on LJ actually doing work, I could do really well. Or at least, y'know, not fail. SO HERE IS WHERE YOU COME IN, FLIST!!
Okay, so. If I tell you that I should be doing homework, but I'm not, or something of the like, or really, if I'm online for more than a couple hours before around 5, or you know, if you just generally see me around when you know (or think) I shouldn't be, do me a favor, okay? Just poke me and be like, "FOCUS, DIVYA!! GO DO SOME WORK." or something. Oh, and Dez! As much as I love our all-nighters, I think they're going to have to be kept for the weekends. SORRY, but I figure weekdays, I should be asleep by at least 3. So yeah.
Oh, and flist? Feel free to just come around randomly and go, "SEASON 1 RORY GILMORE!!!!" at me. I'll know what you mean.
...Okay, fine. See, before, I was like, "Well, I just have to channel my inner Stanford!Sammy, he did well in school!" But apparently, Sammy doesn't like to focus, Sammy likes to flail about how hot his brother is, and read fics about some guys he vaguely knows named Jared and Jensen. So I was thinking about it, and I came up with Rory! Well, season 1 Rory, anyway. The "look how smart and studious I am, I got into Chilton and read under trees and don't have friends not because I'm a big loser who sits in my room all day, but because I'm studying too much" Rory. And you know, if I score a Jared Padalecki-esque boyfriend out of it, so much the better.


In other news, this library mouse doesn't have a scrolly button, and it's seriously pissing me off. Which is weird, since my laptop back in my room doesn't have a scrolly button either, but. All I know is, I keep trying to scroll and then finding there's no button, and so I keep getting frustrated.
Also, this keyboard is about a million years old. >:|

BUT HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[music| HP:PoA on TV]

Sooooooooo today was my first day of classes!
Apparently I suck at calculating how long it takes me to get down to the Lecture Hall, because I was late for two of my three classes. But not that late!
I had Anthropology first - we didn't really learn anything, my professor's like, "I'm going to spend a couple of days just selling you the class, basically" and so today we just talked about how college is a right of passage, and how grades are overrated.
And then I had Oceanography, which was boooooooooring. Right now I'm taking Ocean and Astronomy, but I think I'm going to drop one, just so I'm not taking two sciences. I haven't gone to Astronomy yet, but it's going to have to be really horrible for me to drop it and not Ocean. But we'll see.
And then I had this class that's basically like, transition into college, to ease freshman into college. That class is easily my favorite - it's only 20 people, and we all sit in a circle and discuss things. Well, today we just did icebreakers, but it was still awesome. For a while we all broke into groups and talked about things like what we did this weekend, and only the TA said she went out to a party. Everyone else was like, "Yeah, I just sat around in my room." and I was like, YOU ARE MY KIND OF PEOPLE. And then we had this sheet where we had to write down our favorites and then find people with things in common. And this one guy had a bunch of things in common with me, and he's like, "Oh wow, we're like sisters!!...I mean brothers!!...I mean...siblings!!" and I said, HAHAHA AMAZING WHY IS THIS CLASS SO AMAZING.

Also I have gotten better at talking to people - I mean, I still don't have any friends here, but I can at least carry on conversations with people without those long awkward pauses where I just stare at my shoes and everyone gets uber uncomfortable.

OKAY THAT'S IT. How are all of YOU?? *pokes flist*

Uuuuuumm so I know I'm behind on my B2MEM picspams (I sort of planned out a picspam schedule for that in advance, and I'm not on schedule, needless to say) , but, it being the birthday of a one Mr. Alexander Paul Kapranos, I just had to do a picspam of him. I'm going to get my B2MEM spam done, I promise.


Preeeeeeeesenting...Alex Kapranos!! 41 Pictures. )

Soooo, Happy Birthday, Alex Kapranos, and also Happy Birthday to David Thewlis, (who I unfortunately don't have enough pictures of to do another picspam)!! And Happy Early Birthday, Gary Oldman!!
