I'm always up for new friends, and if we have some interests in common, chances are good I'll add you back. Just comment and let me know.
Operation Go The Heck To Sleep, week 1 results
As I stated in my last entry, I'm trying to start going to bed at 11:50 or so on weeknights so as to get a full seven hours of sleep. This was my first week attempting it. The actual times I went to bed were as follows:
Sunday night: midnight
Monday night: shortly after midnight
Tuesday night: around 12:40 am
Wednesday night: 1:00 am
Thursday night: midnight
So, I never actually got to bed right at 11:50, but midnight is pretty close, and I really only slipped up on two days. As for whether I've seen any improvements in my mood, productivity, etc, I'm guessing it'll take a little bit longer for significant chances to take effect. But I did find that I was able to be a bit more alert in the mornings--three days this week, I actually made my bed in the morning and got to work on time without rushing madly all over the place. Whereas usually, I roll out of bed and barely have enough time to sleepwalk through brushing my teeth and throwing some clothes on before racing off to work and still ending up a few minutes late anyway.
Mood-wise, things are about the same...maybe slightly better than normal early in the week. Though today was more rough--one of those days where I was (am) depressed and crying for no reason whatsoever and using up most of my Kleenex supply at work. So I guess getting more sleep hasn't helped eliminate that, at least not yet.

We Love the Women That Fandom Hates - Day 5
It occurred to me that one of the most important aspects of Ashley's character that I haven't covered much yet is her family and how central they are to her life. This is a snippet from Once and Future Heroes, one of the fics I wrote for Yuletide last year, which touches on Ashley's family life. I suspect that fics posted this week are probably supposed to be new and written especially for womenlovefest, but, well, it's been a busy week.
( A bit of fic and a bit of metaCollapse )

VA pictures, take two
A while back, I was curious about what all the voice actors from Dragon Age: Origins and the Mass Effect games looked like, so I spent the better part of a day blowing off homework and hunting down pictures, then compiling them all in a post. Now that Dragon Age II is out and I'm equally curious about all of its voice actors, it's time for round two!
