Re: My Absence

You may have noticed I haven't posted for the past few weeks. My default emotion is, like, a "depressed-neutral". People tell me I'm too pessimistic, but I believe it's depressive realism. Either way, I'm pretty subdued/melancholic day-to-day. In my absence, I was feeling more depressed than usual. Nothing crippling, but not interested in interacting with others. I would go to work, come home, finish my school stuff, then lose myself in anime and fanfics to forget about my existence for a while. Then I've been manic for the past few days, and have wanted nothing but validation and have been posting impulsively on twitter and such, but I try to keep (most of) my crazy off here. But I wanted to fill y'all in.

During this time, I became crazy obsessed with Tiger & Bunny, which I have been avoiding for years because the title sounds ridiculous and the premise didn't sound much better. But, boy, was I wrong. Not to mention, it fits the more-than-partners/coworkers kink I clearly have: FAKE (Ryo/Dee, Drake/JJ), Yami no Matsuei (Tsuzuki/Hisoka), Tatsumi/Watari), Graviation (Hiro/Suguru), Bones (Brennan/Booth, Anglea/Hodges), Castle (Castle/Beckett), and now Tiger & Bunny (Kotetsu/Barnaby, Antonio/Nathan, one-sided Ivan/Keith... because why not slash the whole damn cast while we're at it XD ). So bummed I showed up late to the party, because I would have LOVED to go to the showing of Tiger & Bunny: the Rising last month. Cie la vie, I suppose.

Plot bunnies also attacked during this time, and I now have a second FAKE fanfic and my first (oh gawd) Tiger & Bunny fanfic in mind. I finished two YnM stories, though only one is posted at the moment, and worked on a handful more. I also drafted out a rough timeline for Incidental and Inconsequential. So, I was sorta productive.

Now that the weather's warming up and the sun is out longer (and there are only 23 days left in this crazy-stressful school year), I'm hoping my mood falls in the neutral to happy range. I mean, I have something going on every weekend in May and a convention in July to look forward to. And once school finishes, I'll have cosplays to work on. So here hoping.

It has been brought to my attention that it is national poetry month. I shall follow wordsofastory's lead and post a poem every day. One of my favorite English teachers had a unit within his Writing Fiction and Poetry class dedicated to song lyrics, so song lyrics will be included in this endeavor.

This is a poem and song lyrics. This poem is also used in the song "Amethyst Remembrance" from the anime Yami no Matsuei (sung by Katou Yuka).

As a teacher, I believe I am required to include this next poem or risk losing my license. It's in my contract. ;)

Another Maggie Estep poem. I was introduced to it while on the Speech Team in high school. A teammate used it as part of her poetry program*, along with Emotional Idiot. I can't read it without hearing it in her voice, and I lament the fact I can't share her awesome interp for you.

The Stupid Jerk That I'm Obsessed With by Maggie EstepCollapse )
*The program also included parts of her poem FUCK ME during late night practices. We also gave our Impromptu speakers dirty prompts like "double ended dildos" at the practices too. We had to do *something* to get through our 4+ hour practices before big tournaments. :P
