I decided that since I've been depressed that the best thing to do is to look at the good things I have. The good outweighs the bad, really.

Good things:
- My family - while they drive me crazy, most days, I know that when I need them there are there with all the love and support they can offer. My Godfather, my dad's youngest brother, just called me today because he was thinking about me and wanted to talk to me. One of my dad's sisters was in the Disney store when it was going out of business and saw some Nightmare Before Christmas stuff and knew I loved it, so she bought it and sent it to me, just because. My dad and mom have done everything they can to make me feel better, to my dad trying to make me laugh because he doesn't like to see me upset. Landon offers hugs and kisses at random times and has come up to me recently and patted me and said "Ashey no cry, ok?"
- My friends - specifically Michelle - is a never ending ream of support. I have to say that while she does get on my nerves occasionally, she's as close to a sister as I will ever have. Thing is, we're both two people who don't let the other wallow and feel sorry for themselves. We kick one another in the ass when we need it, we listen, and we're capable of making the other laugh when no one else can. She is driving four hours the weekend of my birthday just to hang out with me.
- My computer - it's pretty awesome. I bought it as a whole set from Sam's a few years ago. It's a Dell, which is all I will ever own now, and it's fabulous! It has enough room for me to play WoW and keep both Sims 2 and 3.
- World of Warcraft - you have no idea how cathartic it is to go kill some stuff when you're feeling upset.
- Craig Ferguson - I DVR this show because he makes me laugh. I think he's the best late night has to offer. I really like that he rarely ever talks to the people about what they're there to plug. Some of my favorite recent guests: Tom Felton, Robert Downy Jr., Tim Allen, Gerard Butler, and Emma Thompson. I also love his little cussing rabbit, Sid.
- That 70's Show and Big Bang Theory - I love these two shows. I've seen some episodes of That 70's Show so many times I can recite the words. Big Bang Theory, I love this show the more I watch it.
- The soundtracks of Glee - Truly has helped me get through today. "Don't Stop Believing", "Dream On", "Smile", and "Alone" can always bring a smile to my face, and goosebumps to my arms.
- And last but not least, you guys - There is a core group of you that offer never ending support. As long as I've had this journal, I know that I can come here and tell you guys things that I would never tell my real life people and you would never judge me of it. Some of you post things that make me laugh, think, and sometimes go "PLEASE PUT NAKED PEOPLE BEHIND A CUT" but it's almost always entertaining. My last post I cried while I wrote it, but after the love and support you guys sent my way, it really did make me feel better. You're the best online friends that a person could ever have.

So, really, thank you so much guys. Just keep being you.

Lack of posts has to do with obsession with WoW! For the last two days, I have been running my 80 DK Blood Elf through Stratholme trying to beef up my rep with the Argent Dawn. It's been a pain in the ass. In the actual instance, you only get 10 rep points for killing random things in the trash mobs. You can get the scourge stones, sure, but it takes freaking forever to accumulate enough to where it really starts to help you. I've been lost in this the last few days. I ran Strat I don't know how many times.

But now I'm exalted with Argent Dawn and Argent Crusade. Now I just need Ashen Verdict. I've also been working my way through the Argent Tournament Grounds becoming champions with all the Horde cities. I have them all except Sen'jin, but I think after the marathon of playing the last few days, I might take tomorrow off and not play until Monday night when I have Arena.

Oh yeah, I'm on 2 v 2, 3 v 3, and 5 v 5 arena teams. We suck sooooo bad. However, we did win a 5 v 5 because all the opposing people left. That sucks, but hey, we got the achievement for it. No Arena points however. I get my arena points from BGs and I use them to buy arena gear.

I'm sure this is boring a lot of you, but I wanted to be happy here and have someone...maybe [livejournal.com profile] bambue345, [livejournal.com profile] sayyidajaida, or [livejournal.com profile] adamolupin be happy and celebrate with me. However, they all run alliance so...they're like mortal enemies of mine.

In other news...Brittni's shower in B'Ham was today, and oh my god you guys, we drove 2 hours through a fucking monsoon! It was raining so hard at times, you couldn't see the car in front of you. It doesn't help that my mom drives for shit and was in two lanes at certain points...ON THE FREEWAY!...and that she was driving up this person's ass and not looking. When we made it to my cousin's house, alive, I was so relieved I had to run to the bathroom.

Nicole did a fantastic job! Cute little finger foods and punch. Unfortunately, because of the hellacious rain we drove through, that kept some people away. All of my dad's sisters were there, and my mom's sister was there, and a few of my dad's first cousins showed up, but total, there were like 15 people there when it should have been like 75. It was flipping crazy.

Brittni and Adam got some really great stuff. They got new bedding, a fry daddy (which Adam was thrilled about), a lot of towels, some nice votive candles and things. A really great haul.

When we left Nicole's house, it sunny and beautiful with bright pink skies. It figures, doesn't it?

My nephew Landon is now putting whole sentences together. He's not two yet, but he doesn't point at things and grunt, the way a lot of babies apparently do. I found this out because Ashley works at a daycare with Landon's age group and says that some of them only make sounds and things. Landon is talking. He's so freaking cute!

He was sitting on the bed with my dad this morning, having a bottle, and he handed it to my dad and said "Put this over there" talking about on his night stand. My mom and dad looked at him and my dad laughed and took it from him. He's also learning to swim. We got him some water wings and he knows how to hold himself up. He will swim to the deep end, in the swimmers, and climb up the ladder, and jump in. Now, don't get panicked. He can't get the back doors open. We keep them locked and they are almost too heavy for me to open. I worry more about him going out the front door. That one he can open and we keep it bolt locked so he can't get out.

He's too smart for his own good.

I finished my Scorpius/Rose fic yesterday! I really like the way it came out. It's sort of sweet and schmaltzy, but hey, I am what I am.

I also completed Chapter 24 of Beautiful Disaster and it is off at the beta. I think I like it more than I originally thought. I've been getting great reviews for it over at H&V by people who haven't read it. It surprises me sometimes when people haven't read it. Does that make me sound conceited? It's not that, it's just that it's been around since 2004, I guess I assumed that most people in the fandom have at least glimpsed or read the summary. I guess that tells me not to make assumptions.

Tom Felton posted a new picture of himself over on Twitter.

Also, found this gem over on youtube...it's Tom's cameo from Get Him To The Greek



*~*

That's all from me for today. Night everyone!

Just a little update of my day!

I hate Tuesdays. I have all this time to kill in the morning to play WoW and it's down for maintenance. SUCKS ROYALLY!

*~*

I made a 90 on my first math quiz! :)

*~*

I was productive and went to class even though I was so tempted to just blow it off.

*~*

I'm addicted to the song "Telephone" by Lady Gaga and Beyonce and I'm not happy about it. I really want to dislike Lady Gaga but she's making it freaking impossible with her catchy music and putting my beautiful Eric in her video for Paparazzi! DAMN HER!

*~*

I have a ton of math homework due by friday, so tomorrow morning I'll be spending a lot of time in the math lab trying to get it done.

and I think that's it for me for tonight. :)

I love you guys! I have the best f-list in all the world!!
ashleyfanfic: (nightmare jack)
My face is really hot! Like, my cheeks feel like they are on fire!!!

*~*

In other news, WoW, I'm now a 78, sooooo very close to 79! I'm just...like right there! It's driving me crazy! Not to mention that I still don't have enough gold to buy my flying mount for Northrend.

*~*

My nephew is sooo smart. He's thirteen months old, and he's been walking now for over three months. He can say the follow words: book, cookie, Siti, Gidi, Brad, Adam, Dixie, Pepper (it's more Pepah), Momma, Dada, ball, more, bye bye, brush, bath, all gone (it's more ah gone), car, banana(which is nana), nose, eye(and it's that eye cause he points to it), and monster (it's monser). I think it's more that we don't talk to him in baby talk, but we use full words. They bought him this giant dinosaur today from a yardsale and it moves and growls and sings songs, and when he got up from his nap and saw it, he just started laughing! He went over and used the brush to brush it. SOOO CUTE!

We have pictures I'll post later!!

*~*

Halloween is coming really fast! people are decorating and stuff. Landon is going to be Frankenstein's monster, because that's how he walks in shoes.

*~*

I found out that I have a C in Microeconomics! YAY! I was really worried I would have worse! A C is ok with me.

*~*

I've been trying to motivate myself to work on my [livejournal.com profile] dmhgficexchange fic...but I'm just not able to do it right now.

*~*

OH, yeah, one more thing...ROOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL TIDE ROLL!!!

Tennessee fans, explain something to me, yes, you QB sucks, we've had sucky QBs too, but we never BOOed the kid! I feel bad for him. Why are you booing your QB?! He needs to know that the fans are behind him...but he knows they aren't!!!

*~*

My baby brother is coming home for two days for the first time in four months Tuesday! I've missed him!!
ashleyfanfic: (Alabama Football!!)
Hello world!!

So, here's a little update...

I had two tests this week. One in Microeconomics and one in Accounting. No idea how I did on either. I have a test thursday in Stats that I'm dreading.

*~*

So, Alabama is 4-0 with an awesome victory against Arkansas. Georgia struggled to beat them, but I think that says more about how crappy Georgia is this year.

And the Tebow was hurt...awww. I thought he was superman! At least, that's the way it sounds when the announcers talk about him. I mean, I expect at halftime he walks on water then goes and saves puppies from a burning building. I think my hate for Tebow is more because the announcers all love him. Hell, the announcers for the television, no matter the station, suck. If you were just listening to the Alabama/Arkansas game on TV, you would have thought that Arkansas had it by 50 points.

*~*

It feels like it's been raining here since 1998. I don't even remember what it was like when the sun came out. We're supposed to have a sunny day tomorrow, but I highly doubt it.

*~*

On the World of Warcraft front. I have less than 15 days to make it to level 80 before my submission time runs out. I don't have any money and with dad paying the rest of my bills, I just don't have the heart to ask him to pay for 6 months of WoW time. :(

But my Death Knight is a level 76. I'm nearly high enough to buy a flying mount for Northrend. I'm also Double Spec, in Blood and Frost. Frost because I kept getting asked to tank and when people found out that I was blood, they were pissed. So, I went frost, too. Frost only pulls more aggro, while I feel like Blood deals more damage.

Also, Brewfest is going on, and I've almost got enough coins to buy brew of the month. I need one more day on the damn goat to get it. And I've been looking for a weapon better than the Ax I currently have that deals like 500 damage and has a high crit strike rating as well as armor penetration. I've yet to find one.

My brother is no longer playing WoW because he works all the time and just doesn't have time, which is sad because that's when I usually got to talk to him. Although, I changed servers, so that wasn't even really true.

Anyway, I love this game, but I've found that if I play it right before I go to bed, that I dream about it. And believe me, you do not want to dream about WoW. It doesn't lend itself to peaceful dreams. When I first started playing, I had a recurring dream that I was on my mount, riding around the Barrens, trying to find animals to kill for their skin. Pretty bad when you're so involved in something that you dream about it.

*~*

That's it for me for the night. I'm super tired and I just want to crawl into bed and sleep for, like, forever. My cousin Nicole is having a baby shower tomorrow, so I probably won't be around.

Toodles!

So, I've been playing WoW like a crazy woman lately, determined to get to 80 before my paid time runs out in october. I'm at 73 now, half way to 74. I just compter the Take Back Undercity quest, which was freaking awesome! I love the whole backstory of this game. I mean, every race has such a deep and interesting story that you really do get sucked in.

Oh, Arthas is a wuss!

Anyway, I've almost got enough money to buy my flying mount for Northrend, which could be both good and bad. There are a lot of flying elites around Northrend, especially in dragonblight, but I think for like Grizzly Hills, Borean Tundra, and Howling Fjord, it will be okay. Certainly will save me some money.

At some point I would really like to be able to double specialize, especially as a DK, but I just don't know where I'm going to get the gold from. I really need to do more instances to get more gold, but unfortunately, unless you're an 75 or higher, people don't want to let you join them. I did Nexx at like 71, and I did less DPS than the healer. How sad is that?
ashleyfanfic: (jackie pout)
So, I started my Algebra class two days late, but I'm already caught up! YAY!!!

I did all the homework that was assigned on the computer and I'm waiting until tomorrow to take the test.

College seems much easier the second time around.

*~*

I'm really really tired. I woke up in the middle of the night to find my heart racing like it does sometimes. I hate that. I always have a horrible headache the next day.

*~*

Landon has been fussy today. At least, when I've been here. I don't know why, but he has.

*~*

I wanna do some more icons...so I'm taking requests again.

Only restriction is no Twilight please. I already made Taylor Lautner icons. I just don't wanna have to do any of the rest of the cast.


*~*

I've finally made it to level 71 on WoW with my Death Knight. I'm in Northrend and gah, sometimes I just hate running quests. Like, I don't mind doing the actual quest, but running it back sometimes takes more time than its worth. I also would like to do more instances, but I guess I'll just have to wait until people around do them and are looking for someone because my guild is higher than me and they're doing them together. Not to mention, instances are sometimes hard for me to do because I can never have five minutes alone to do anything.

*~*

Anyway, I think that's about it from me tonight. I'm tired, I plan to take a shower, watch That 70's Show/Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and then go to bed.

It's Halloween time everywhere. Case and point.

I play World of Warcraft and I was minding my little Hunter business in Crossroads last night when this thing showed up, scratched me, and I turned into a damn zombie! And then the guards would kill me, I would resurrect, and something scratched me and I was a zombie again. This went on for like 2 hours. UGH!
