So if you want to get some love and give some love, [ profile] radioaches is hosting a What I like about you meme, which is always delightful. So join and share and give love!

I kinda have nothing else to say. I have not written much; I am seeing [ profile] lanyon in a couple of hours and am reallllly excited! Football has also sort of taken over my life at the moment. It'll go away, don't worry.

I have been pretty absent lately. I apologise, my lovelies! I have access to Twitter during the day, but not much LJ. I STILL LOVE YOU ENORMOUSLY THOUGH.

I have an excuse, though: work. I know, it's lame, but you know the tool I was working with? I had to constantly clean up after him, it's been mental. But, as of yesterday afternoon, his contract was terminated, and I am now 'acting consultant' in my team! Which is awesome but also means I'm picking up the slack. So, yeah. Quite busy. The number of meetings I have to attend is sort of out of this world.

Okay, so, cage fighting Clint is finished, in the hands of my beta. Now, I want to ask, people. I know this has been asked multiple times on my flist before but if you have any opinion I'd like it:

What is, for you, an optimal posting time for a fic? I tend to avoid posting on weekends/Fridays, but that's all. Do you think the beginning of the week is better?

I have been nominated for Employee of the Month. It doesn't mean much, there is about 15 other nominees, and it's only for Amazon Vouchers, but considering the shitstorm work has been lately, and how hard I've been trudging and trying and doing my best and working overtime most days, it's nice to feel a bit of recognition.

That, and Twitter has been a blessing recently, a mad influx of Avengers friends (HAI YOU GUYS) populating my feed with crazy flailing and plotting and support and it's been amazing. Amazing.

I am dearly hormonal today, and I know it, but, hey, all of you, ♥.

You know, when you want to write a story so much, and you want it to be finished so much, because you want everyone to see the final result, because you're proud and excited about it, and it can't seem to get out of your head and fingers fast enough, and yet - time and real life are not on your side, and keep you from doing exactly that?

Yeah, that's where I'm at, at the moment. It's driving me crazy, and maybe it's another thing that is adding to my stress levels. I have managed about 1K a day for the past week, writing in the tube mostly, but it's not enough and I am driving myself to distraction thinking about how much I want to write, how much I want to post that story.

Because for now, I am very proud of it, and I really do think it's good, and I want people to read it, and hopefully enjoy it, and feel what I'm feeling for these characters.

Are you ready to wait? I don't feel like I am. Anyone want to get into my head and write it for me?

God, you guys, work is beating me down. There are issues, and a lot of work to be done, and meetings all the time, and heels to be worn, and I am tired and overwhelmed and angry, too, some, and I just want to scream at my desk. Some people are not treating me right, and I don't know how long I'll be able to take it before I explode.

I've been in a state of constant stress and jumpiness for the past week and a half. [ profile] foxxcub, bless her so immensely, wrote filthy sappy porn for me the other day, and it made my day.

I'm just tired, you guys. I feel ready to cry at all times, my shoulders and back hurt, I am stressed and dreaming about work, it's that bad. I'm guessing it will be sorted out, and I've been told today that I'm performing really well in my role, so I am happy with that, but this pressure is something that wears me down.

I'll be okay. I just need to relax. In the meantime, I shall sneak looks at JRenner's face.

delicatale: (Danno is worried)

I'm not memorable. People tend to forget my name, forget my face, forget that I exist, because I'm not one of these 'in your face' type of person. I have been left behind many times, so many times nowadays I'm paranoid of it.

And then there's the writing. My writing's not memorable, it's not something that sticks with people so much. It's enjoyable, fair enough, but is it memorable? I don't think so. I don't think there is a single person in the fandoms I've been in, or am in, that would say I'm their absolute favourite author because my words stick with them, and inspire them, and make them feel things no one else does.

It's back to the being average thing. It's back to me feeling worthless - I am sorry about that. I have had a couple of hard days at work and I'm not really sure what is my life doing at the moment, so I'm questioning everything.

This is not a pity-party post, I am not fishing for compliments. I'm putting it down here so I can try and get used to it, or think of what I can do to improve. In turn, a timely meme:

If you were asked to pick one scene, one shot, one detail, one moment of some kind out of all the things I've made and say "This, this, for whatever reason, I remember, this is something that struck home with me, that I wanted to keep," what would it be?

You don't had to answer if there is nothing coming to mind. I'll be back with silly fannishly posts soon!

After I posted yesterday, our office manager spotted me and put me in an empty meeting room with the lights off to try and help my light sensitivity, and when my manager was out of the meeting he was in, he sent me home.

This morning I am feeling better; my eyes are not as sore. I went out to the post office and the rain felt quite good on my face, my skin has been feeling incredibly tight. Now I'm having a big breakfast because I am starving and will spend a really quiet weekend with my girls.

Thank you for all the hugs and advice. I'm still wobbly and my brain is still hurting, but I'm getting there.

PS: AOL :(. Wishing him the speediest, best recovery.

I am in so much pain right now. 24 hours headache turned into a full blown migraine this afternoon. Managed not to throw up, but the light in the office is hurting my eyes so much I can't stop crying.

I want to go home, curl into a bed in the dark and will it away, but I just started in this job and I just can't bear the thought of asking to go home early.

Someone tell me signing up for a Band of Brothers fic exchange when I've never written BoB fic is a terrible idea. Someone shake this stupid idea off my head?

Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

delicatale: (H50 everybody likes hippos)

Question - what fic do you guys really would like me to write? I know I've asked this in the past, but I thought I'll ask again, possibly for inspiration.

AU or not, in either of these fandoms: Hawaii Five-0 (Steve/Danny - I seem to have found my desire to write them again), Avengers (Clint/Phil, Steve/Bucky, Phil/Pepper, Loki/Darcy), Inception (Arthur/Eames).

Just, tell me about that plot you've been wanting to read forever, if you think I could do a good job of it. If you plan on writing it yourself, or you're super specific about it, it might be a disappointment to tell me though ;).

Also, full disclaimer: telling me about a plot bunny doesn't mean I'll write it. I want to kick start my Muse but she's picky, and I won't get to write everything, even if I wish I could write all of you everything you ever wished for ♥.

Guys, what are your favourite movies? Like, all time favourites (make it something in colour if possible, I get terrible headaches trying to watch black and white movies).

I want to expand my knowledge. So hit me up!

delicatale: (JRenner gets naked for you)

I AM SO TIRED. I managed to get lost on my way in to my new office, AND THEN DID IT AGAIN ON THE WAY HOME. I ended up taking the Tube at Bank instead of Old Street (so I walked quite a lot, for those this means nothing to).
I also did my back in and was in agony all day, which kept me from being focused to what everybody told me, but overall? Good day. The office is really nice, people were welcoming, and some of them are reaaaaally pretty. So I am not complaining, really. It'll take a little while to get settled, but I think I'll be busy in a good way when I get there, which is something I wasn't at my old job and did drive me slightly crazy.

ANYWAY. New H50 coming, which should be hopefully full of Danno feelings, which I agree with, and OH THE AVENGERS TRAILER YOU GUYS THE AVENGERS TRAILER UNF UNF UNF. TALK TO ME ABOUT IT.

Does someone want to write for me? Or with me? Something easy? idk, I just want all the comfort tonight, and you guys are the best providers. I'll take anything you want to give me! I can try to provide if you prompt me! ♥

Last night, I dreamt about being pregnant. Twice in one dream (when, in real life, it's a possibility I'll have trouble getting pregnant). Like, I gave birth and then there was an ellipsis and then I was pregnant again. Not even kidding, I get pregnant dreams when something big happens in my life. I've read somewhere that dreaming about being pregnant means a project coming to fruition, things like that.

Well, this afternoon I had yet another interview, with a big search marketing agency, the kind you hear about when you follow industry news and all, and it was a super technical interview and sort of terrifying, but you know what? I impressed them so much they gave me an offer a few hours later.

It probably has nothing to do with the fact that I dreamt I was pregnant but man, this shit happens. Anyway, I HAVE A JOB. AN AMAZING ONE AT THAT. So I am pleaaaaased, and I want to say thank you to all of you who supported me through the bitching, and TAKE THAT, NOW EX-BOSS WHO TOLD ME TWO DAYS AGO I WAS DOING THINGS WRONG IN INTERVIEWS.

Alllllll the group hug and high five gifs are more than welcome, I LOVE YOU ALLLLLLL.

Had one interview this morning (with 2 people - it was for 2 different roles), for the biggest marketing company in the UK. The search team, apparently, has its own bar in their part of the building. They work for Mars, and Cancer Research, and Procter&Gamble, and Revlon, and Eon, and Honda, and so, so much more. They get free tickets to see Wicked. They have a GP on site, and a chiropractor coming once a month. You get your birthday off.

I just. I want it. I want it so much, I'm sure I won't have it.

Never minding this, am headed off to yet another interview today before I can go home and collapse. I hate this part, I really do.

So, merry Christmas you guys! I am currently at home with my parents, after one hell of a trek yesterday that had me forgetting my passport and missing my Eurostar and having a breakdown. All is well now, my dog is currently slobbering over my pj bottoms and my mum is making me coffee and I have had wayyyy too much to eat.

So, as it is Christmas, does anyone want drabbles? Like, I'd say Avengers things. Whatever you want? If you want something seasonal or something zombified or something AU-ish, just let me know. As long as its not Steve/Tony, which is a pairing I still have difficulties with. Lalalaaaaa ^_^.

Okay, guys, this is important. My friend [ profile] acook's little dog is having health issues, and she doesn't have the money to get him to the vet. She is an artist, and very talented at that, so she's selling her art to be able to take Hubert to the vet. Check out her Lj, or her Tumblr to see her prices and gallery. Please, at least take a look if you can afford it! This is actually breaking my heart. Feel free to spread the word if you can, too - it'd be wonderful.

Thank you.

Couldn't sleep, so just watched Thor.

I guess I understand much better now fandom's obsession over Tom Hiddleston, and Chris Hemsworth's back.
