How's Everyone Holding Up?

1) Don't let the FUCKING GARBAGE fire let you down. We're gonna be okay! (I hope!) Fight! Fight! Remember, here's some songs to bolster you in your time of need! Read articles like this, which is the funniest thing I've seen all year, holy fuck. Strike or wear red in solidarity on March 8th! Also, get involved and call your senators and congresspeople (if you're American). 5calls.org is a super helpful site that tells you exactly who to call and what to say about all the different issues currently facing us. I'm doing my best to call or email every night! \o/

2) We're getting our first glimpses of the super-whitewashed Ghost in the Shell and Iron First, to which I have to say - [x]. Also, if you want extra fictional things to be angry about, the dickwad who wrote Captain America as a Nazi has apparently also written Magneto - Jewish Holocaust survivor Magneto - as a Nazi collaborator. Soooo. Yeah.

3) I know it's been about ten billion years since I actively engaged in Naruto fandom, but at the end of this month (if all goes well) I'm actually going to San Francisco to meet up in person for the first time ever with questofdreams, atanih88, audreytiphaine, and akalillyn as a group. (nilladriel and maybe aamyra were also supposed to be there, but due to an illness in the family, money, and Fuckface Von Clownstick, they can't come. ;_; I am so mad and sad.) We've known each other, Skyped, and IMed for about eight years now, but while a few of us have met up in pairs, we've never all converged together in the same spot. I am beyond excited. We've been planning this (and saving money, lol) for literally like the last two years. I hope everything goes as planned. Fingers crossed.

4) Me and paranye finished the first segement of our drunken Snape argument. It lasted six hours, included nine straight shots of rum or vodka each (???!!!), and ended with me literally face-down on the bed asleep as she rambled philosophically at my unconscious, unmoving body. So... I'll be editing that down? And then we'll be doing it again to wrap up. >.>;

4.5) We made a Friendship Test with x_dark_siren_x when we were in Scotland and I've kind of finally made it into an actual, doable quiz. >.>;

5) How's everyone doing? :)

6) FUCK TRUMP! \o/

the Great Gathering sounds amazing!! I'm so happy for you all. :D

Thanks much for that 5calls site, I've been getting really bogged down mentally with all the shit going on because there's.....so much?? And it feels like an impossible tidal wave of horrific shit and I don't even know where to begin trying to help fight it anymore, so yeah. That should be helpful.

Other than the world ending tho I'm doing okay! I'm graduating soon, after I get back from a monthlong study abroad trip in London and Canterbury that I'm simultaneously nervous and out of my mind excited for. So that will be fun, I hope!

I totally understand. :( It's been a landslide of shit, and we all have to stay afloat, especially if we want to keep helping. *hugs*

OMG LONDON THAT SOUNDS SO EXCITING. What will you be doing there? :D

Yessss pictures! :D

So the class is on ~the literature and culture of London~ and each week's focus is a different century, our itinerary is SO PACKED but mostly I'm excited for seeing Anne Boleyn's childhood home (I will cry) and seeing David Tennant in Don Juan, which my school pulled some serious sorcery for! It's gonna be a wild ride that will hopefully inspire me to post more on LJ, haha!
