Not quite sure how that'll go. I'm confident that I'll make an absolute fucking prat out of myself or be perfectly unable to shut up.
I'm still not sure that anyone actually reads this (not even the prof who suggested we start these things [HI ROY]) but if you'd like to try to help me calm down, I'd be more than willing to accept aid. Or troll you, I'm not sure where that particular mood-aspect is leaning at the moment.
Try not to take it personally if I do, it's just the World and I keeping track of who's winning.

Considering the habit was "at least once a day", I was expecting this to be... I don't know, easier?
I certainly credit it with the rash of absolutely *brilliant* ideas I've been having lately.
That was sarcasm. I know it doesn't translate well.
Suffice it to say that it's been fucking with my sleep a bit lately. Either I'm awake much too late without trying or I'm sleeping too lightly and waking up a few times in the night. Either way, it's doing wonders (sarcasm again) for my state of actually being awake in class.
So there's this girl in one of my courses. She's from the other section of the class, should be in the 2pm editing class instead of this one, but I digress. She's cute, blonde, and likes horror films.
So, in my half-awake state the other day, I ask her "hey, that theatre downtown is showing Dead Snow (Norweigian? zombie flick. Nazi zombies, very good). I was going to go with a friend, but he bailed." Completely out of the blue, no reason that I can think of other than that I was half asleep.
Want the shocking part?
She said "sure."
Well fuck me. What am I supposed to do now?

Of course, the annoying part is, it's not acting up at this point. Shooting just fine as you please. There's no point in having it looked at of course, it's just.. frustrating.
So, day one without caffeine.
I got up around usual time, class from ten to four. First problem was that I was falling alseep halfway through that. The second problem was the looming assignment deadline. That was nice. Had to get that one finished.
The cold is what's doing it though, I think. If you'd asked me to go without caffeine in the summer, I'd have said I needed it because of having to get up early and work, but really it was because the door I sat next to pretty much belched arctic air out at me all day. It could be 30+ degrees (celsius) outside and I'd be at the counter, wrapped up in a blanket. The cold is going to be a killer.
Getting off topic though. Stumbled into bed around two in the morning after forcing myself to stay up and finish an assignment. Got up at six again to polish it off, class at nine, another assignment downtown this afternoon and then? Weekend. I want my bed again already. Bluh...
So, today's official action plan? No caffeine, stay warm. Maybe, I don't know, herbal tea or something?

I'm quitting caffeine.
This may seem counter-intuitive, given that I live in Ottawa.
For those of you unfamiliar with the region, it gets quite cold here. A cup of coffee (or hot chocolate, if you aren't a coffee person) is easily appreciated. And if you're in a program where you find yourself attending late classes, or needing to be awake at odd hours of the morning in order to benefit from the class?
But I digress, I'm now rather tired, after only six hours in and a full night of sleep? This is going to be an interesting first day.

Why can I not find any good horror. And please, please don't try to tell me that gore is good horror.
Gore gets old *fast*. When you throw buckets of blood and guts at a screen, over and over again? The audience is eventually going to get desensitized.
So I need some psychological horror. And really if there's anyone reading this? I would love suggestions.

Mostly, the problem is that the whether hasn't decided how cold it wants to fucking well be, up until this weekend. WINTER IS COMING!
Not that I have a problem with winter or anything, I'd just like the whether to settle on a mood so I can dress appropriately.
I'll have some more photos up on the tumblr later this week, if anyone's interested.
