tinfoil_hats: Kermit the Frog flailing, captioned "YAY ohmygod" ([kermit] OMG OMG OMG)
I have been up since 8:30 AM bouncing off the walls. I did not go to bed until 3 AM last night, so I'm kind of wondering what devil I unwittingly bargained with for all of this energy.

Thus far today, I have:
- Applied for jobs
- Searched for summer housing
- Hung out in the student union until I was bored
- Walked around campus twice
- Walked around local businesses hassling for job openings
- Archive binge on Black Adventures
- Wrote a (locked) LiveJournal essay about how Ghetsis is the single most evil character in all of Pokemon canon or fandom-- he abuses his son, kicks dog-types, and has terrible fashion sense-- and I'd still ride that like I stole it
- Went to the library and hassled about volunteer hours
- Did some work on a GLINDA update for the first time in weeks
- Decided the next GLINDA update wasn't going to work unless I retconned in the Veilstone City part of the story that got skipped first, because a lot of the plot I was hoping to work on is set up there and I really need a break from all the talking heads to draw some damn Pokemon
- Did some sketchwork for the recovery of the Veilstone City arc
- Got on Platinum and level-ground Boudicca from her low twenties to her low thirties.
- Made a fancy dinner

Aaaaand I'm waiting until after 8 PM to call Mom and wish her Happy Mother's Day because Dad probably took her out for dinner or something.

I am sorta starting to understand how party!Elliot feels in this scene

So for Spring Break this year I couldn't go back to Houston because the family was out of town to visit colleges with my brother.

Instead, I decided to clean my room, reorganize the furniture, and get a wardrobe makeover.

While I was pushing furniture around, I found that my bed's mattress was... well, it was five and a half years old. It was getting old and sagging under its own weight. So I got a new bed.

Then on Wednesday since my room was clean, I went to the museum. Dallas's Museum of Science is pretty meh, but I enjoyed the shark exhibit. I thought about going to the IMAX movies, and those probably would have been a better waste of my money TBH because they had two "prehistoric creatures" flicks and one about sharks. I totally didn't realize it was "Pi Day" until the schoolchildren descended upon the place.

On the way home (I took the train for grins), a total stranger tried to chat me up and then gave me his number, which is what inspired me to redo my wardrobe because I was wearing my Chuck Norris shirt and who the heck hits on a girl in a Chuck Norris shirt? (NOTE: Google Chrome's spellchecker does not object to Chuck Norris.)

So I took a bunch of online "what is your body type/ideal style" quizzes, figured out what the hell I'm supposed to be wearing for my figure, donated a bunch of stuff I don't wear anyway to Goodwill, and went shopping. I got some long tops, a skirt, and some skinny pants at Half Of Half, and some short dresses, canvas sneakers in black and white, belt (one of my dresses has a low waist and the seam going across my butt looks kind of bad), purse, and makeup bags at Ross. Maybe this weekend between cramming essays I can sort out my jewelry collection and start coordinating accessories.

Anyway, now I am wearing a short dress, skinny pants and sneakers, I have probably spent more staying here than I would have if I'd gone to Houston for Spring Break (admittedly mostly on the new bed), and I feel like my spirit Pokemon is a little closer to evolving. Now if only I could get the next GLINDA update to not suck and get my homework done and get someone to take my picture so I could show you guys...
