Julia



Gotta love, could never hate her
Lives in the now and never later
I'd put my life in her hands --
so sure of where she stands
She gets your heart racing --
she's anyone's for the chasing
She's cute, and when smiling,
she's really quite beguiling
Impassive but not cold,
her story's yet untold
Best friend, partner in crime
Doesn't care, but she's all mine

Even though I missed the [livejournal.com profile] summerwrite boat (*glares at self for not knowing*), I do want to give a summer write a go in my own way. Wordcount isn't much of an issue for me, but finishing projects is definitely hard. Anything over 10k and I freak out halfway through, banish it to the WIP folder, and never think of it again. So this summer, I plan to write 50k of content -- but it has to be finished. Fic, poems, a novel; any and all of the above. I'll be taking fic requests, asking for prompts, and planning my NaNovel, all from Memorial Day - Labor Day. Are you excited? I am!

Goals


-Finish my longstanding fic WIP, Adelie, and figure out a posting plan for it
-Finish, in some manner, everything in my WIP folder (includes incorporating several WIPs into one finished product, or into new content)
-For every two HP fics, write one from another fandom; for every five fics of any nature, write something original
-Draft detailed outlines for three NaNovels, and vague summaries for five more

April at 16


On days like this,
I'm just happy to be
alive,
free,
and young.

Who could ask for more?


April at 16: alternate version



Pretty, young, and free --

-- what more is there to be?


Spring



The tan-line of my father's Claddagh ring on my finger,
Sweet songbird melodies carried on the breeze,
Knowing that I am beautiful in my youth,
More words than I know what to do with,
Windows thrown open to a new beginning,
Days and nights rich with the purest of friends,
Playlists of blood-pumping, pulse-quickening tracks,
Sepia photographs that remind me where I come from --
and a heart that knows where I'm going.

This season, I will be pursuing a style that I have called Seventies Chic. I found inspiration for my style statement in the hippie movement of the seventies; the hippie initiative, protest by peace and power in love, is especially relevant in today's world. I find real integrity in that kind of philosophy because, drugs aside, there is substantial power and potential hidden beneath a peaceful message that has been romanticized by the passage of time. I want to bring that kind of hidden power into my life: I am smart and sassy, but want to be mellow and earthy along with it. My style has to be more approachable than the power suit that matches my dominating personality, and so I will make the most of my identity as the child of a flower child. The 'chic' part reminds me that I am in 2008, going to a prestigious university with brilliant people. I need to be professional, with clean lines and sleek silhouettes. Key words this season include: polished, flowing, confident, bright, long, and professional. The soundtrack of the season ranges from the Grateful Dead to the Stones to Jack Johnson, exuding summery and light feelings. The personality that I will be emulating is a university student who brings nature to the big city, but remains modern and professional. She brings a brighter, modern twist to hippie style and keeps it chic.

Color scheming is mixed: bright focus pieces with a neutral counterpoint. For example, a bright floral skirt with a white tank top, or fitted white or grey shorts with a flowing patterned top. There will be a focus on white, the color of purity and cleanliness. Note that a Tide-to-Go pen is essential for this look. When denim is worn, it is to be paired with a particularly vibrant top or dress to brighten up the outfit.

Accessories are very important this season. White tops can be broken up with a bright wrist full of bangles, and patterned dresses toned down with neutral earrings and necklaces. Shoes are to be treated as any other accessory, with the outfit's brightness kept well in mind. As for hair, big is not bad -- though not always best, either. The standard, straight look is all right on occasion, but more wintery; teased and clipped back can work as well, or pushed back with a headband or pair of sunglasses. If a proper hat is found, that could work as well.

It is important to be impeccably groomed this season, for I cannot pull off Seventies Chic without such constant elements as short buffed nails, perfect hair, well-shaped brows, smooth legs, and flawless skin. Makeup will be light, clean, and blended; it will highlight my eyes and lips via open-eyed mascara techniques and sheer gloss, respectively. The dark eyeliner and heavy blush will be discarded in favor of a much more natural look.

Some RL nonsense... )

HELP!


I have started a second blog, which I will link to when it's finished. Before I can properly format it, I need content suggestions! This is where you come in, f-list of wonder.

What would you like to see me blog about?
(This can be creative or RL, tutorial or advice. Fire away!)

ALSO!

I joined Script Frenzy two days ago. It starts in six days, and I have no idea what to write about.

Plot ideas for a movie/play/TV show?

Thank you a million times over!

Given the many urgent scientific and technological challenges facing America and the rest of the world, the increasing need for accurate scientific information in political decision making, and the vital role scientific innovation plays in spurring economic growth and competitiveness, we call for a public debate in which the U.S. presidential candidates share their views on the issues of The Environment, Health and Medicine, and Science and Technology Policy.

Pass it on!

Now, if you're anything like me, you have a load of things lying about your room/flat/home that you really need to organize one day, but never get around to doing. For me, a lot of these things were earrings. I've loads of pretty pairs and mismatched pairs and even a few expensive pairs, but the bead-organizer box that I had been using to store them just didn't cut it. There weren't enough little spaces, and it was a pain to get it out from my closet, undo the clasp, remove the lid and inner lid, then find the pair I was looking for. What I really needed was some sort of earring rack to hang them all on. So I went to Target in search of such a piece -- no good. They were either too big, too small, or far too expensive. I found a few suiting my needs on Amazon, but I can't be bothered to pay that much for something so trivial. Then, as I was sitting around the house today with nothing to do, too weak to do any real cleaning/work/organizing, I decided that it was time to get rid of this earring problem once and for all. Above is the finished product; view the steps behind the cut.

Title: Then and Now
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jazzonia
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Irwin/Dakin
A/N: My first dabbling in the HB fandom. Concrit would be great.


Then and Now


Once, Dakin muses, he would have bragged to Scripps about bedding Irwin. He'd have shared enough details to make Scripps' mouth water, then ended with a flippant remark about preferring Fiona, just to reassure his audience of his steadfast heterosexuality. He wouldn't mention how he had come so fast that it hurt, nor that he'd wanted to stay the night but hadn't had the nerve.

Instead, he picks up the phone to call Irwin -- Fancy another drink? -- but hangs up after five long rings.

In a small flat ten miles away, Irwin is left greeting a dial tone.
