2. do you like the feeling of cold air on your cheeks on a wintry day?

um, we don't really have a winter in the sense of snowball fights and white christmases? but it does get cold in december, and it hails about once or twice during winter. and i like the... i wouldn't say cold, but cool? it makes me happy. like rain makes me happy. (omg running around in the rain always makes me SO FKN HAPPY. like AUTOMATIC happy. monsoon is the fkn BEST.)

You Are In Love is one of those TSwift songs that is considered "not her best". But even at "not her best", she soothes my soul so much? like, it's a very lovely world to step into. she's describing a very soft love and addressing it to you, which is the sweetest thing? like she wants you to have this? i'm melting.

[livejournal.com profile] manue7a just did part of a giant 100 days (things?) meme to kill time, and i guess i'm doing it now?

1. when you have cereal, do you have more milk than cereal or more cereal than milk?

more cereal, always. i mean, i like my cereal a little soggy, but also i REALLY don't like milk? (i don't like the taste, and also it gives me gas.) so i just let the cereal sit around in JUST enough milk for a little while, and once most of the milk is absorbed, go forth and nom.

(also, cereal first, then milk. i don't know how anyone does it the other way round without cringing.)

yes, i'm still hooked to This Too Shall Pass. it's a beautiful song with a lot of lyrics and a lot of layers, all of which i haven't properly listened to and analysed yet. ugh this song has SO MUCH to it i am dying. i want to be able to write like this. (i'm remembering what i love about writing! this is good!)

(for anyone who wants it, i'll post the entire meme in a comment below because i don't want it clogging up this (or any) entry, and also like for my reference?)

i picked the kate icon because that's pretty much what i look like when i'm neutral-happy. <3

([personal profile] china_shop posted about the origin of her name (see: the lyrics of You Had Time by Ani DiFranco), and it's exam time for me now, and this is my exam regret song, so it seems appropriate to listen to it now xD)

i'm not entirely fond of the piano intro of this song - the piano sounds high-pitched somehow, and i have a long dislike for high-pitched sounds - but overall, it sets the tone for the rest of the song quite well.

this song takes its time (heh) and is soft and mournful and the lyrics are sharper than needles and it is my kind of song.

exams are nigh )

carla bruni is a surprisingly good singer. she has this rasp in her voice that straight up KILLS me. i am in love. but otoh i'm in love with different things everyday. but ot3h isn't that the way to live?

another surprising thing about her: there's no politics in the comment threads. i was expecting stuff about sarkozy and the state of french politics, but it was all about the music. i don't know whether to be thrilled at the niceness of people or sad at my cynicism and background sexism-ish thing idk what to call it.

i'm obsessed send help.

in other news: i'm making lists of things i want to do and things i'm doing for the next month or so. i suspect i won't be v productive while sorting things out, but that's ok. inktober will probably stretch into november seeing as i've only done 5 days so far, but no one's judging, right? c: this is a thing i'm doing to make me happy. it's not going to become a stressor because i won't let it.

i found a good reference for the thing i want to do for day 5's prompt! i should start uploading these things to my chaos tumblr maybe xD

also, i've sorted my phone contacts, which is currently a mess of my ENTIRE FAMILY's contacts, all through the A's. There are a LOT of desi names that start with A. I predict that I should be able to knock off B and C tomorrow.

*flailsquees all over your flist*

I WRANGLED AO3 INTO EMBEDDING MY PODFIC AUDIO LIKE A MONTH AFTER POSTING IT. LOOKIT!

DESPITE THE LATENESS, I AM SO HECKIN PROUD OF MYSELF.

BRB OFF TO HUG MY BURGER FLIPPING GODDESS AND ALSO FIREFOX. CHROME CAN KISS MY ASS I DON'T CARE IF FIREFOX IS SLOW I'M NEVER USING CHROME AGAIN.

eta - also eugh i really dislike listening to my own voice. i keep JUDGING it. like, me @ me rn: you sound too desi. also me: YOU ARE NOT DESI ENOUGH DAMMIT. me, looking at me: .....wtf. *hands*

eta2 - i'm sidetracking into music i need to focus on art and academics this month. the thing is, i'm interested in so many things that it's REALLY HECKIN EASY to get distracted and just go around chasing new shinies. i want to see progress, and improve. i'm going to have to rein myself in a little.

also, this is turning into more of a blog than a fanfic journal. what opinions do you have on my removing all my fic tags and just grouping all the fics under fandom tags and making "fannish things" tags for the various shows/movies i tend to talk about? the main way i post fanfic now is direct to AO3, so it doesn't make much sense to keep those tags around anymore. i'd delete the fics too, but comments <3
