Need to get down, the scene is oh so right [Jun. 5th, 2006|09:40 am]
Woah... lots of happenings on LJ today, and RL too...

Starting with LJ (for the less serious stuff)...

hogwarts_elite: WOOHOO! Finally! I just read (and received) confirmation for their upcoming/ongoing/let's-start-all-over-again RPG. Based in the Marauder's Era (their seventh year at Hogwarts) circa 1977. I will be playing Dorcas Meadows, medorcas, who was given maybe one or two sentences in canon about her description. She was an Auror, who was pretty good in Moody's eyes, who was killed by Voldemort himself (somewhere between 1978 and 1981). So, basically, I get to make her a kick-arse female! (I mean, she's gotta be smart and capable if Voldemort took it upon himself to AK her rather than send his DEs to do the job, right? ;).) So, possibly later tonight, I will be working on her LJ. At least, getting the profile and userpics up and running. I will probably ask Jena if she could make me a spiffy layout. ^_^

hogwartsharmony: Well, my class is gaining students and participation. ^_^ I'm even giving students *cough* another chance if their math/calculations are wrong. So far, so good. I'm not sure if I should set the deadline for this Thursday or next week Thursday, to give them more time... I guess we'll see about that. Also, we might be getting Deputies or Head Girls for our Houses. *PICK ME!* heehee! Well, either me or traceria. ^_^

hogwartsishome: I actually tried my hand at three drabbles for the RP game characters that I like. You can read it here if you like. I control Jackie's character (right now, she's going through a little heartache as the boy she is crushing on doesn't like the same way - awww... *pats Jackie's head*). There, I actually play three characters, but Jackie's my main gal (the other two are sub-characters that don't get much storyline/threads).

Golly! With those three, plus Dorcas (and possibly Cho, if the other RP takes off; and Luna, for WitherWings), I'm going to be swamped...? Nah. I think I can handle it. It looks like a lot, but if you spend as much time as I do waiting for other players and their characters to respond, it really isn't that bad. It just looks like a lot.

As for RL, well, my mom is scared because she recently went to the doctor's office and they told her she has hypertension. She thinks that if she just diets and loses weight, her blood pressure will go down; and that is true, as she's done it before. But the doctor totally scared her. As if she'd have a stroke or heart attack right in front of her *knock on wood*. I told her to go with the diet first, and if it doesn't lower, then we'll look into other things. She doesn't want to be stuck on a medication for the rest of her life, as most medications only treat the symptoms but they don't actually 'cure' the illness/disease. And though the med that the doctor prescribed was okay, she wants to go with Chinese remedies. It doesn't help that last night (I think it was Dateline), on TV, there was a program about counterfeit drugs.

Funny how most people in my profession (even though we deal with medications and hospitals and doctors) would rather avoid said medications and try for a natural healing method instead. Perhaps, it's because we see what happens and we don't want it to happen to us. I think I'd rather live my life ignorantly bliss than have to take ten medications for every disease in the book when I'm 65.

I was thinking about putting a message up in Ravenclaw House about your class--asking for House support...

Definitely sounds like lots of problems for your mom. Poor dear.

LOL... yes, I will continue it (it is floating rampant in my mind) ^_^ but I was trying to finish the Cho/Draco fic first since it's shorter (I only have to write 4 more chapters for Cho/Draco versus 9 more chapters for The Clause). The Clause is going to be LOOOONG... at least as long as The Contract, and possibly even longer - depending on how the plot turns in my mind.

Ah, the pressure! Ok, I'll go work on Chapter 2 of The Clause :D before I finish Cho/Draco. hehehe...

I just requested to join your class. Holding a BA in mathematics, I'm personally only going to let myself use a calculator as a last resort. ;)

What sort of profession is that? Just curious because the law firm I work for represents some drug manufacturers so I get to see a lot of medical things myself (though I've decided I'm going to go along with the doctor's prescription for Zyrtec AND drink green tea, as per usual).

I work in a hospital, mainly supervising technicians in their work, although once or twice a week, they have me work at off-site clinics to help others.

oh gosh, i'm sorry to hear that about your mom. i'll definitely be praying for her. and i agree with you about the medication thing...my grandma actually had a stroke a couple years ago and ever since she has had to take ALL this medication (actually, she had to take a lot before too...but now it's just even more). it's just...guh. it really makes me not look forward to getting old.
