Wow. I just got seriously yelled at by the mother of one my little brother's friends. And that's fine, I can understand a worried mother who can't reach her son needing to let out some steam, but I am the ONLY ONE, who gets to yell at my little brother. I am an adult and can take the responsibility of not realizing the different curfews my brother's friend may have (though despite the fact that I calmly apologized for not making sure her kid had his cell fully charged, I don't actually concider that my responsibility), but she does not get to yell at a kid who is apologizing already despite none of this actually being his fault. >:( 

Why yes I am highly protective of what's mine.

In other news, it's starting to sink in that I'm going to study the two things I never thought I would: history and politics. And some languages but I still haven't figured out whether to continue French with Spanish or German or just take the latter two. Decisions, decisions.

I've started thinking about packing too, and let me tell you, it's impossible to make 50kg of clothes magically become the allotted 20kg. Oh btw that 50kg doesn't include shoes or coats and there should still be room in that 20kg for my essential electronics . Any miracle packing tips? Because I will gladly take them.

Is anyone watching Suits? I'm sort of incredibly charmed by this show. Donna is most awesome.

I need a rule: No random RL posts for me unless I take the time to do them as stickfigure drawings.

I'm taking a tiny break from the last stressful study stuff, so I thought I'd do the trope meme and talk a little about my practically only squick. Only, I stumbled upon it unwillingly again and you're getting a tiny rant instead:

Dear really very good fic writers of the world,

Stop sticking mentions/metaphors/similes of drowning (oneself) in your pwps (or plotty fic for that matter) like it's supposed to be a good thing. There are much better, less overused ways to describe a character feeling overwhelmed. Drowning is not a romantic concept.

No, seriously, three times this week. Stop it right this moment.

a disgruntled, short-of-breath Ace.

I'm not being unreasonable, am I? It is quite jarring to go from "Hey, hot! :D" to "What. D:" and the rest of the fic gets read (if it does) while thinking something like "I have very little trust for you anymore. :|". Torchwood is brainwashing me into dealing with it though, what with the sort of canon instances. (I've started to think of the episode with the squick as reassuring /o?.)
