Ten and Five

Writer's Block: Fan love

Who is your favorite TV character of all time? Why did s/he make such a big impact on you? Do you collect any memorabilia? Did s/he inspire you creatively in any way?

I guess I should've answered this earlier but I didn't see it soooo.

Obviously it's the Doctor. No one else can compare, to me. He's just so great. (And not just Ten, either, but all of him.)
I think it's because a lot of really horrible things happen but he's so full of energy and stuff, even though his sadness can be a bit all-consuming for him at points. He still runs around saving people and doing fun things and making people better when he meets them. When people travel with him they become stronger and more willing to take stands, to try something new, to be curious about things and care about people. He's a disaster magnet, but he always tries to fix things. I just admire how willing he is to keep going after all the crap he's gone through. Even though he's got a huge ego and he can be a jerk and he's so dumb sometimes, I still really adore him.
Yesss, I collect memorabilia! I have three posters of him on my wall right now. (One of Ten and Donna, one of Ten, the Master and Wilf from EoT, and one of Eleven.) And a few New Who novels.
I draw DW fanart sometimes, but it's mostly crap so I never post it anywhere.
I sort of wanna cosplay him sometime, if that counts. I wanna be Raggedy!Eleven from Eleventh Hour! Or Ten. Ten's good. I want his hair.

Lost spoilers ahead, for the latest episode and also about the confirmed status of a certain pilot.

Doctor Who is STILL going great, and I'm a believer in the Jacket!Doctor theory. <3 I hope Vampires of Venice is a good episode.

Also, AP exams are conspiring to murder me. I took the US history one yesterday. One down, two to go! I think I did well on it, I spent the last two weeks studying like mad.
Next Wednesday are the English Language and Art History exams. I think I'll be alright on those, too, but on the same day....OTL

Hey! I'm so sorry for not posting in so long, I've been beyond busy lately. Sorry if I worried any of you.
The third semester of school just ended, and I'm at the end of my spring break right now. I've been spending most of my time doing school work, college stuff, and hanging out with friends.

Nothing much has gone on lately, except that I ended up with C's in Math and Science, as usual. But that's alright, I've still got a 3.58, which is nice.

Oh, Lost! Desmond finally showed up. I won't lie, at the end of The Package, I jumped up and down and cheered. I'm so glad he's back! This week's episode was nice, too. Only five more to go.

Oh, and this is late, but I love the new Doctor, by the way. That bit at the end: "Basically, run." That was beautiful.  I think he's awesome. :D And Amy's great, too. Can't wait for the new episode tomorrow.

Not the best rainbow, but it'll do.
Okay, I'll stop being obnoxious now. But today is my birthday. <3 And it's also a good friend of mine's birthday, too! And Snape's birthday, which is cool.

I'm going to spend the day with my best friends today AND tomorrow, plus my parents are taking my twin and I to Kobe's steakhouse for a birthday dinner tonight. :D

It was supposed to be cold enough to snow this morning (which is just weird), but I woke too late to see any possible flurries. D:

:D My birthday is tomorrow! Hooray! I'm kind of excited about it now. I'm going to hang out with my best friends at the bookstore and go to Kobe's for dinner, it's gonna be awesome.

What's not so awesome is that I feel like I'm getting sick. OTL It'd be just my luck to be sick on my birthday!  I've been feeling lousy lately. I don't want to go to school, but I don't think I can miss any more days....

Lately it's been WAY too cold outside. We normally have temperatures in the 60s during winter, but for some reason we keep getting low 50s and high 40s! And tomorrow it's a high of 40 degrees. I don't have enough winter clothes! And it's supposed to snow tonight. We never get snow. NEVER.
I am never moving up north. If it gets this cold, I'll stay down south FOREVER.

Writer's Block: Reflections

What are your fondest memories of 2009? What were the low points? All told, what were the most significant events of 2009? Do you wish you could do it all over again?

Fondest memories:
- Well, all the times I've talked with my LJ friends on here counts. :D You guys are wonderful.
- Getting to sail during Spring Break! I love sailing so much.
- Hanging out with my best friends
- Seeing the HBP movie (which was seriously just awesome)
- Discovering just how cool Gene Wilder is!
- Obama becoming president was pretty awesome
- Seeing pictures of the new Doctor made me less worried about the coming season. :D
- Becoming friends with a few new people, and getting reacquainted with a few others.
- Discovering just how wonderful art history is. Seriously, I adore it now.
- My super cute kitten Scout is just adorable.

Low points:
- This being Ten's last year as the Doctor makes me sad. I'm going to miss him very much.
- Oh, finding out that David was leaving Doctor Who, that was definitely a low point.
- My favorite Torchwood character dying, too, that was just depressing.
- Slowly beginning the slog towards college, that's definitely been the time of my life.
- Getting sick way too often and missing a lot of school.
- Growing apart from a few friends I really loved being with last year.
- Anddd....I do believe that's it.

Would I do it all over again? I was going to say 'Oh, totally', but I'm excited about 2010, and I hope it's as happy as my 2009 year was. I spent a lot of '09 in really long periods of just being happy and content with my life, so hopefully that'll carry over to 2010.

Speaking of next year, only a few more days until the 1st! And less than a fortnight until I turn 17. That is so weird. I LIKE being 16. I don't really want to be 17.

Also, the 1st will be bringing the last episode of my favorite Doctor. D: I'm going to cry when I watch that episode, I know it. I just love Ten, and I'm really sad to see him go, especially since it sounds like his death is going to be really sad.
I am excited for Eleven, though, so I think it'll be okay.

Just one week left until Christmas break, thank goodness. I've been so tired lately, my teachers keep giving me tests and projects. My grades aren't so hot right now, but I have confidence that I can pull them up before the end of the grading period. >:O!

I have a bunch of books I wanna read, too. I convinced both the book club and my AP Lang teacher to let me read Good Omens, so thankfully I can read something enjoyable for school. :D I bought a bunch of Discworld books and Dresden Files books at the used bookstore, so I can read those when I finish up. I'm also reading the second Beka Cooper book.
While I was at the used bookstore I bought this gorgeous copy of Peter Pan and Wendy, a big hardback full of the prettiest illustrations. It's awesome. <3

For art class, I have to draw a picture of a real person, so I chose this picture of David Tennant, since he's got a cool face that's pretty fun to draw. I printed it out and was carrying it around school today, and I got 4 comments about how scary he looked. One guy even said he looked like a serial killer. OTL Is he really that scary looking!? I thought he just looked intense! Normally he's so smiley.

Speaking of DT, 14 days until the DW Christmas Special! <3 I'm so excited. Is it bad that I think I'm a little more excited for that than I am for actual Christmas?

Hey! I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. :D If you don't celebrate it, I hope you have a fantastic day anyway. Go out and eat a really good meal! Everyone who IS celebrating, I hope you have a great dinner with your family and friends.

Also, good luck to everyone who's going shopping tomorrow. Don't get trampled by crowds!

I left my plastic black lantern ring next to the laptop fan and now it's bending funny because it got too hot. OTL And the new cat keeps stealing small stuff from my room. I found my tiny Q doll in the kitchen this morning.

It was so cold today! High of 68 degrees. I got to wear a turtleneck~! After school I sat outside on porch and drank hot tea while reading a book. I wish it was cold like this all the time. It's gonna go back to about 80 in a few days, though. Sigh.

Tomorrow I get to go to an art festival on a fieldtrip! All the juniors and seniors in the art classes are allowed to go. We get to miss school and go hang out and look at art. It's gonna be fun.

*Watches repeats of Moonlight*

Waters of Mars is in 3 days!

The first nine weeks of junior is over. Wooo! I've been working myself to death for the past few weeks, and it totally payed off, because GUESS WHAT I HAVE.


YEAH. Take that, physics! 
I was very very worried, but I have all As and Bs, and my GPA is a 3.7. Finally!

This joy is slightly marred by the fact that I have ANOTHER bad cold, which is like the third one in two months. I have to go to a birthday party today, too....but I'm feeling better than yesterday, at least, so I should be better tomorrow. 

SO HOW ARE YOU FLIST. *radiates happiness*
