    I think I might have to write my dream. URGH but first I have to get over this freakin' block in Sherlockettes. It's not that I don't know what to write next, it's that I have no motivation. This always happens when I hit 20k.

    Should I watch Dancing with the Stars or listen to the Rangers/Capitals game?

    I can't decide which one I should tell you to do... Watch Dancing With the Stars while listening to the Rangers/Capitals?

    I think the stupid listening app thing died on me... so the decision was made for me and I'm refreshing the Ranger's page for results and watching Dancing with the Stars... and cleaning...

    I feel your pain. My roommate and I have to completely strip our room and move out even though we're moving back into the exact same room next semester.

    Back to the Rangers game. Not going well.

    ETA: Okay guys, gotta run. Hopefully I can come back and be random on Wednesday. Good luck to everyone in their respective trials (academic or literary or anything!) if I don't make it on.

    Anyway...

    Accomplished next to nothing since I last posted in this thread. You know, productivity is overrated, anyway.

    Anyone excited for In$urgent tomorrow? I never read Diverg3nt because it feels so similar to The Hunger Games. It seems to be just another marketing scheme to ride the dystopian trend. Is entertaining, at least?

    Let me know if I missed anything big.

    OH MY GOSH YES. I'm so sad because I pre-ordered it with COLS so it won't be here until next week.

    These people on tumblr are hilarious. Seriously, I should probably be upset or sorry or something about offending people with my ship, but at the same time, I can't believe how seriously these people take some random kid's personal anti-karofsky post. Dying.

    Hello!

    Kurtofsky shippers are notably terrible in that regard, though.

    That ship makes me sick. I just can't wrap my head around the idea of the former sexual harassment victim (not assault, but harassment) getting together with his former harasser (though former is debatable, since one could make a very good case that the gorilla suit incident was harassment). It's squicky. To me, at least.

    There are times when I like them, but I'll still be surprised if they get together.

    So the conversation yesterday about sub consciousnesses inspired an SNI.

    Also, my laptop should be coming back soon.

    Oh, yay!

    I need to work on Sherlockettes, you guys. It's MAY. I've been working on this since March. And I got the idea in JANUARY.

    I usually write fast.

    I don't know if I could watch the show anymore if Kurtofsky happened. I am quite fond of Kurofsky and Sebastian as a pair, though.
