I'm trying to get back to doing this more regularly as I find its a wonderful way to talk about books and be thoughtful about my choices.

What I finished reading

Empty Net by Toni Aleo, which I didn't finish. Its a contemporary hockey romance novel and I ate up the first three hundred or so pages but then it seemed to lag. It felt like the conflicts were being added or dragged out and since it was part of a series, they all didn't have to wrap up. The writing was good, which was why I was disappointed, I feel like with better editing and pacing, this book would really work for me.

I reread Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer and found it an intriguing read in the balance between investigative journalism and memoir. And I reread some favorite Ngaio Marsh mysteries that are set around the holidays: Death of a Fool and Tied up in Tinsel.

What I'm currently reading

Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets edited by Paige Daniels and Mary Fan. I'm dipping in and out of this anthology which I picked up because I heard Mary Fan speak at Chessiecon and was impressed by her. So far the stories are good but nothing amazing.

Tangled Vines by Frances Dinkelspiel and I'm enjoying it a lot. There's history, a conman and California all written in a wonderful style.

The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen, I picked this up when it was on sale and so far I'm liking it. The style makes me think of Miss Fisher and a little of the Montmaray books.

What I'm reading next

I'm hoping to finally read Bone Gap which I've been taking in and out of the library as I was distracted by other books. Other than that, it depends a lot on what I'm in the mood for.
ceitfianna: (a writer's life)
I'm dealing with some major head congestion but I'm slowly putting various things in motion. A big part of that has been more writing, I finished my [community profile] ineedmyfics in a fandom I've never written for and started a few more fics including at least one in another new fandom. Not new to me, but new to my writing.

What I finished

Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren, which I enjoyed. I liked that the hero was the one who needed to be taught how to enjoy himself and the conflicts and issues made sense. My main issue was it felt like the heroine didn't have as strong an emotional journey, hers was more dealing with making something that had been a fantasy, a reality and what it meant. A good and sexy read with some wonderfully intimate and funny scenes, an author who's contemporaries I might read more of.

A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan McGuire, the newest October Daye book. This is one that feels like its setting the stage but at the same time opening up the world. As always I love these books and this is one I look forward to rereading because its more about seeing what's going on and working to fix it instead of solving something. It also feels like a book with Toby embracing her role in a way she hasn't before and its great to see and I love all the background it provided. Its left me with questions, ideas and a lot to chew on.

What I'm currently reading

No Dark Place by Joan Wolf, a medieval set book that I'm not sure how to categorize. At times, it reminds me of the Cadfael books in terms of the research and there is a mystery, but the author didn't learn from Peters the lesson of showing the world versus telling. I've been moving slowly through this book because too many things get spelled out, taking their armor off every time they enter, commenting on the armor and who's overlord. Once or twice would be fine for setting the scene but there's too much explaining and it gets in the way. The characters and story are intriguing, the main character is a young man trying to find out where he fits on the cusp of the war between Stephen and Matilda and everyone wants to use him. Instead he's trying to understand where he came from, find a way to be with the woman he loves and deal with migraines. At this point, I have about a hundred pages left in the book, but I don't know when I'll read them. There isn't a huge pull for me in this book and I wish there was. Good historical fiction makes me happy and this is almost really good.

The Cestus Deception by Steven Barnes, this is a Star Wars Clone Wars' novel and I'm liking it. The author has a good feel for the world and I can so far picture it all happening during the animated series which I loved. It also stars Obi-Wan and Kit Fisto, I love both of them and its wonderful to see more of how they work together.

Chrysalis: Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis
by Kim Todd is a fascinating book about a woman scientist who lived in the late 1600s. The author does a great job of showing how she fit into the world of science and commerce in her time and the art is beautiful. Smithsonian magazine just had an her as there's another book about her coming out this year. On their site, they have digital images of her art which I know I've seen on cards.

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War by Karen Abbott, this book got a lot of praise when it came out and it really deserves it. The book is fast moving, alternating between the four women, and showing how at times their stories intersect. Its a reminder of how small the United States can be sometimes and how brave, determined and horrible people can be. I also find Civil War history fascinating and this book does a great job of looking at women and the different kinds of home fronts.

What I'm reading next

I'm hoping to be able to get a copy of Bone Gap by Laura Ruby from the library. I've heard amazing things about this book and have wanted to read it since I heard about it at ALA Midwinter back in January. Recently its actually on the shelf at the library so I want to snag it. I might also read Only a Promise, the newest Survivor's Club novel by Mary Balogh.
ceitfianna: (Dean time rambles on)
Life has been full with fact-checking and interviews because the job search is always present. Today I had a tough interview that I got through and feel like I presented myself as I wanted to in. I'm also reading a lot of good books and have finished a mix of great and okay books. Also last week, I saw Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain Tonight and the choices he made of using Twain's words to speak about racism was amazing and I want to write in more depth about it. It struck me with the power of theater.

What I finished reading

Uprooted by Naomi Novik, this book hit me in a lot of places I knew. The worry of not fitting, stories, not being who you're supposed to be and how to be yourself when everyone wants you to be someone else. This is one of the best books that has a fairy tale at its heart but is its own thing that I've read in a long time.

I Kissed An Earl by Julie Anne Long, part of her Pennyroyal Green series. I enjoyed reading this book that plays with the tropes of a bored debutante and a captain with a hard past but it didn't hit me as hard as I expected. An enjoyable romance, well written, great characters and a wonderful understanding of certain tropes but not my favorite of her books.

What I'm currently reading

the Book of Phoenix by Nnedi Okorafor which is fantastic. The writing is beautiful and the setting is fascinating. I've been meaning to read her and I'm hooked.

The Attenbury Emeralds by Jill Paton Walsh, this is her third Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane mystery. When they first came out, I read her books and was impressed with how she wrote Peter and Harriet. This one is definitely hooking me.

Welcome to Paradise by Rosalind James. This is an ebook I picked up because the author's from New Zealand and I was curious. Its caught me which I never expected. The setting is a reality tv show that's a cross between Survivor and those shows where people have to live like its another era. I also find the use of a reality tv show clever as she can play with tropes and intense situations and it works in a way that it doesn't always in contemporary romance.The writing and characters feel real so I think I'll be reading more of Rosalind James.

What I'm reading next
Probably Brothers in Arms by Lois McMaster Bujold which is technically a reread as I have some ideas about writing fic and RP for Ivan Vorpatril. Before I do that I have to remind myself of the various versions of him and this will turn into an entire canon reread.
ceitfianna: (Tiwa playful)
Today just seems to keep being weird for me, though I am accomplishing stuff. The movers are settled, so now I can focus on starting to sort and clean my place and arranging to shut off various services. My body is being awful and I don't know why. My ankle's been hurting quite badly and when I went to get lunch, I had a point where I thought I might faint. I ended up not able to eat my sandwich and instead had some yogurt which helped. I've no idea what happened and plan on sleeping a lot when I get home tonight.

I ended up writing a fill over on [profile] marvelousladies, which is awesome, everyone should go play there. The story I wrote is Get Your Claws In, a Peggy, Natasha fic from the prompt: Any: Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women. Later I'll post it on Ao3, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Since I'm still feeling a bit worn out and work is quiet, I'm going to do a few more rounds of the 5 topics/question meme.

Comment to this post saying "FIVE!" and I will pick five things I would like you to talk about. They might make sense or be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself, hopefully for the rest of eternity!

(I don't really care if you say "FIVE" or let me know some other way. Just for the record.)

1. Why librarian.
This one gets its own answer because its kind of tucked into the other one I did before. Libraries are where I keep coming back to throughout my life, they've always been the safe places for me. I know that I can enter any public library around the world and I will find a quiet space to sit, free internet and like minded people. I want to help create those places for kids, for them to know that they can come to me and I'll help them navigate books and life and creativity. Growing up it was librarians who gave me the courage to try reading books I wouldn't have normally tried and who were simply there for me.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do you remember what you were doing
between July 2000 and June 2001? Think back. Did anything happen
then that felt like a wild jumpstart, or a series of epiphanies, or a
benevolent form of shock therapy? Were you forcibly dislodged from a rut
by an adversary who eventually became an ally? Did you wake up from a
sleepy trance you didn't even know you had been in? I'm guessing that at
least some of those experiences will be returning in the coming months,
but on a higher octave this time.

Yes, quite a lot of things happened during those months as the summer of 2000 was the one right after my first year at Randolph-Macon Woman's College and what I think of as my summer of hell. I ended up breaking up horribly with my high school boyfriend who then cut me off from a lot of friends and I worked on finding my way. Later I ended up with a fantastic partner and I had a great school year and spent time figuring out how to get myself to Athens in 2002. The world was hugely in flux, but I came out of it with some new scars but stronger and happier.

I'm taking hope from this as I just found out from my job agency that the job in Rhode Island was filled. I had a sinking feeling it probably was considering that I hadn't heard from them, but I still wish that I'd heard more than here's a check to reimburse you. Now I go back to the cover letter grind and go and write another blog post since I'm worried my current one isn't the best first impression.

My birthday celebrations keep happening as last night, I got two gift cards from one of my brothers. One for Zingerman's and one for iTunes, then did a wonderful sync watch with [personal profile] wanderlustlover, [personal profile] ladyoflorien and [personal profile] dynastessa of Shakespeare in Love and that movie is really such happiness for me.

I'm slowly getting all my errands taken care of as the new mirror's been ordered for my car and the price doesn't look to be too bad. The last steri strips are nearing ready to fall off my ear lobe, so I need to go and have another doc look at it to tell me if I need to keep it bandaged or not. My back hurts and I need to figure out getting a massage which got sidetracked by other ideas.

This is just a little dip, but I know that there is the right job out there for me. The three I interviewed for showed me that its a matter of everything connecting and it will happen. When August comes around, all the signs that say time to go out of Michigan will be answered.
ceitfianna: (Default)
I always find it interesting to do this year in review meme so I'm going to post it as my sister in law and nieces play hearts. Life is feeling pretty good at this point. My banking stuff is finally sorted after another phone call where someone reversed the overdraft charges and sped up my credit for stolen money. It's progress which I'm grateful for.

Also I've created mirror journals for all of my RP ones though the only differences is that Tiwa and Jane's journals don't have their underscores. I started some of the imports but then realized that honestly those can wait as with some of them that will be a project. Today was wonderful, our family went for a walk out by Cape Henlopen and I split off at one point and had a nice quiet second half of the walk and took some gorgeous pictures along with having an idea for a fic. The afternoon has been lazy and since the weather in Delaware is amazingly good, my father set up the chiminea we have outside so the girls could have s'mores.

We spent some nice time being chilly, drinking wine and eating sugar, I also took some good pictures. I love having my family close and discovering my brother and I have very similar music tastes as he gave me a playlist full of Ryan Adams. Currently there's lamb cooking in the oven and lots of delicious wine. I hope everyone's New Year is wonderful. I feel blessed to have spent this year with all of you and hopefully next year I can meet more of you.

Looking back on 2011 )
ceitfianna: (Weasleys family)
Tomorrow I fly off to California to celebrate my brother A's wedding and to enjoy Sonoma valley with all of my immediate family. We're going to be about two hours north of San Francisco and there's been talk of possibly a day trip or something to San Francisco. I know that a couple of my wonderful flisters live in that area and I'd love to meet up if possible. Leave a comment here or PM me so we can trade emails and plot and plan. The weekend won't work as that's going to be full of wedding celebrations but I'll be flying out on the 31st so there are some options.

The place I'm staying will have internet access and I'll be bringing my computer but knowing how my family does vacations I'll probably only be on near the end of the day. I plan on checking my email every day and keeping up with the threads I'm in but its best to not rely on more than that for me.

In awesome news, the guy that I connected with at the Book Festival returned my email and we're going to go out for coffee when I return from my trip.

The weather has turned horribly hot and muggy as if its going, but its still summer.

Thanks to the comment-a-thon I did a fill for, I'm having that fun reaction of what happens when I write for a popular ship and fandom. The same thing happened for my Loki/Sif story on the Thor Kink meme as my Ao3 account for that story keeps getting lots of hits. Its a rather nice feeling to write a story that strangers like and think works for such a popular and well known fandom couple.

I'm going to be around the rest of today but doing various errands as I have to do laundry, and I have some things I meant to do earlier this week that didn't happen.
ceitfianna: (Dean time rambles on)
First thing, [livejournal.com profile] ashen_key linked to this ficathon and it looks fun and awesome. Everyone should participate.

Bad Sex & Awkward Romance

a comment-a-thon

Dreamwidth | Livejournal

ETA: And I filled a prompt on the meme, Open the Gates, X-Men First Class, Charles/Erik, Rated R. The prompt was They got quite good at the nuances of psychic joining during sex, eventually. But it didn't go so well the first time.

Today I finally feel rested and its rather amazing then I had the best random news. When I was working with the Book Festival, I connected with the tech person working with us and ages ago sent him an email asking if he wanted to do something. I got an email saying that he'd lost my email but he'd love to do something and also curious if I might want to join some tabletop games. I can still do this dating thing, I haven't forgotten how.

Then I went and did some shopping so I can finally use the shredder I got from [livejournal.com profile] dodger_sister and rearrange all of my paperwork before I leave. It was great to meet her though I ran into a wall of water storm on my way which tired me out a lot.

Also I drove out to the other Borders and found some nice finds, I'm going on vacation in a few days and I love having fun paperbacks to read. Life is good. In terms of the vacation, I keep getting these wonderfully bouncy emails from my brother and his fiancee telling us about the plans for the wedding and the area. I get to see most of my family and hang out in Sonoma valley, its going to be awesome.
ceitfianna: (stop this nonsense)
Today went far too long and its going to take me a while to recover. It was full of good and bad but the tiring parts outweighed the good ones. Class ended around four o'clock and I was aware of every minute of it, I like this class but its not terribly organized so sometimes it drags. Parts went fast but not all of them and I didn't get much to eat beforehand and never felt quite awake. The good part was I got back a paper I did about the Lewes library and I got an A on it which made me happy.

Then the next dragging part was group work for this presentation thing about an article, these presentations are so much more laid back than what I'm used to at SI. Basically we have an international article and just need to get the info across. The first group did a game show thing and my group thought, oh that will make it more interesting. So after grabbing a highly disappointing sandwich at Jimmy John's, I hate their food, its like they give you the utter minimum and the bread always seems stale, we went to work. We headed to the computers in the bottom of the social work building and the seats were odd. It took forever as the woman in the group who's made herself the organizer found a powerpoint that's Who Wants to be a Millionaire where you fill in the questions and it took ages. My thought was keep questions simple and open for discussion, easier on us and much more interactive, but she wanted to play with this powerpoint thing. I mean it looks really cool with all the animation but its not going to make the presentation that much more interactive. Nope, we created fifteen interesting but slightly mind numbing questions about fundraising in Japan.

At least while we were there, I emailed the guy from the book festival about going for coffee, which I think is also making me tense. Finally we finished and the humidity went up a lot and I felt sore and awful, that part hasn't passed, but tomorrow I have off and there will be grocery shopping.

Wonderful other thing that [livejournal.com profile] ashen_key found, go read this, it speaks truth.

Now as this meme has been floating around and I love the idea of it and need to get my creative juices flowing.

Give me 2-9 actors. I'll put my music on shuffle, and create a movie synopsis based on those actors and the first song that comes up.
Bonus: I will even try to create a movie poster. No guarantees, though.
ceitfianna: (stormy ship)
Walking to and from class today was exciting as apparently there are massive thunderstorms in the area and I didn't realize it until I was too far out my door. So I was rained on both ways and I'm still wet, but it was a good excuse to do my laundry and I have tea and soon will have toast. Oddly I'm feeling shaky and I think I know why so this is going to be a rather thoughtful post for me as I get these things out there so they're not rattling around in my head.

My list of things to do is long and the main ones are about job things but they scare me the most so I quietly put them off. When I think about applying for jobs and asking for recommendations, I get scared. Its a tough market out there and I know how amazing some of my fellow classmates are and while I'm a good student, I don't know how good I am. So I do many small steps as opposed to large ones.

Also I still need to go back and get online access again so I can apply for graduation for the degree I got in New Zealand a couple of years ago and finally get a diploma from Victoria. None of these things are impossible, but I'm scared. I'm good at pretending that I'm doing okay and hiding my fear, but I am terrified. What if I don't find a job? What if the only ones I find aren't good enough? I know what I've done and that helps, but at the moment when I'm feeling storm tossed and bedraggled, I just want someone to hold me and say it'll be okay.

Another part of this is I really miss being in a relationship and having someone to connect with after class or hold me when I sleep. That's another fear I need to move past and realize that if I take chances, I'll connect.

In terms of the Monday to Monday list of goals that I was doing with [livejournal.com profile] spooky_lemur, I didn't manage all of them, but most of them. I like doing this and having this list on my fridge where I can check things off.
-Get my hair cut
-Go to an event in town
-Exercise twice a week
-Buy dessert twice a week if at all
-Keep walking
-Do something towards getting a job every day
-Write a fic or an OOM-doesn't have to be shared just write
ceitfianna: (Dean and Anna love hurts)
Today has been a day when I just didn't feel all here, but my database group seems to be doing okay. I worried about not being in last week, but I think we have a plan and we'll do okay. Our project is smaller than other peoples and this project will get done before my other two. So that's something good. Otherwise I just feel worn out and I know its going to get worse before it gets better.

While I know the Classics' department is looking for something for me, registration is coming up and I'd love to have that stuff sorted before the end of the semester. I'm just not sure at what point do I say, thank you, but I'll just do one of the other courses I found.

In nicer news, it sounds like my family might come out to visit in late June and I'm going to try and plan at least one or two weekend trips during the summer to see people if I can.

Now for the last day of this meme, which is a complicated one. I'm not sure how this is going to go, but I've enjoyed doing this meme and how its made me think.

Day One: Pride - Seven great things about yourself
Day Two: Envy - Seven things you lack and covet
Day Three: Wrath - Seven things that piss you off
Day Four: Sloth - Seven things you neglect to do
Day Five: Greed - Seven worldly material desires
Day Six: Gluttony - Seven guilty pleasures
Day Seven: Lust - Seven love secrets

Love lifts us up )

I hope these make sense to anyone who's not me and please feel free to ask me questions since today I feel rather cotton wooled.
ceitfianna: (never forget to wipe your sword)
I thought about doing this last night but honestly others' wrath came first.

Day One: Pride - Seven great things about yourself
Day Two: Envy - Seven things you lack and covet
Day Three: Wrath - Seven things that piss you off
Day Four: Sloth - Seven things you neglect to do
Day Five: Greed - Seven worldly material desires
Day Six: Gluttony - Seven guilty pleasures
Day Seven: Lust - Seven love secrets

Just don't. )
ceitfianna: (Star Trek dare to dream)
Today was quiet, my database course is the only I can comfortably miss a class because she doesn't take attendance and makes good slides. I try not to miss a lot of things since the semesters are so packed here but I think I'm going to pass this class even if I miss two. This morning I woke up and was just sore and the thought of not only being on campus for a while but hauling my big laptop around made me decide to just not.

Instead I emailed with the Classics' department and there was progress until one of the people I emailed with said oh these classes are for the fall. For context, the email I sent out had as the subject Summer Graduate Courses, on Friday I'm going to meet with one of these advisors and see if I can figure out something. I would be so happy if I could translate Greek and get credit for it.

Day One: Pride - Seven great things about yourself
Day Two: Envy - Seven things you lack and covet
Day Three: Wrath - Seven things that piss you off
Day Four: Sloth - Seven things you neglect to do
Day Five: Greed - Seven worldly material desires
Day Six: Gluttony - Seven guilty pleasures
Day Seven: Lust - Seven love secrets

I wish.. )

Again this meme took me in some unexpected directions, its odd how somehow sins are good at bringing out parts of ourselves we don't always look at.
ceitfianna: (Hatter is bemused)
This past week has been strange, I've felt on the edge of being sick and so rather fuzzy around the edges. So all the work that I planned on getting done ahead of time for the things I have due on Monday didn't really happen. I'm feeling better, still not at full strength but better.

Also I have gotten some things done, the cards have finally been sent and I hope they make everyone smile. Sadly I didn't have addresses for everyone I would have liked to send them too but maybe another year. I adore getting mail so just like sending it when I can.

Today has started off oddly, I had this long complex dream about sharing an apartment with a friend and a guy that I wanted to be more but the dream was full of awkward moments. It made me realize that I seriously miss having someone to cuddle and cook with and just be with in my life. As I was getting dressed, I kept thinking about the guy who was my flatmate in Wellington that didn't happen due to me being scared. Someone's out there, I just need to keep being myself and always moving forward. Then I woke up and had a nice brunch with [livejournal.com profile] the_croupier, who I always enjoying hanging out with. After we got our food, I swung by one of the local grocery stores to buy a few things.

Depending on how my work goes this afternoon, I might go to Trader Joe's and actually stock up, that hinges on the programming work. I know I can do the work for this class but a part of me worries that well maybe 502 was a fluke, which isn't helpful. That's why I've been putting it off, my own worries get in the way.

So if I can get that done then I can do the screencast which I'm more certain of and then I still have all my reading for my Monday classes. Life is good just full at the moment.
ceitfianna: (Macedonian gold wreath)
Life is good today, I'm not working at the library this coming weekend so my weekend is actually my own. My internship is going well, I just keep slowly making progress and listening my way through my iTunes' library since I'm down in the basement with no one else. So if anyone happens to have any new artists that they're loving, please share. Its sort of nice to have my laptop and really be able to for a little while make that space my own.

The Queen reference is because I recently watched The Young Victoria and loved it, I watched it twice before sending it back. If she wasn't quite so like Jane in terms of eras and just general styling, I'd play her. She might get tossed into Mixed Muses if I can find some icons that I like.

While I just finished reading To Visit the Queen by Diane Duane and really enjoyed it. I need to be my hands on the book that comes before this one. What's interesting about Diane Duane is that she's an author that I've really wanted to like, but the first book of hers I read, So You Want to be a Wizard didn't fit for me.

Though a lot of that was mixed up in being a rather tough time for me. It was last Fall and Winter and I took it with me on a trip to the Gunks, where I was sick. Yet I was also having to help my family prep our land there for renting so lots of cleaning. A ton of little things conspired against me, the air bed I was sleeping in had a leak and I just felt awful. That meant that while I could see she was a good writer, I didn't want to go out and get the next one. While with this book, I just loved it and the way wizardry works in her world makes so much more sense. I look forward to reading more of her stuff now.

In a roundabout way, this reminds me of how balanced and sure of my way I feel now compared to last year. I went back into my older entries to lock a picture post and read some of my entries from around last Fall and Winter. Its striking how much I was hurting, job things weren't working well and I just wasn't feeling happy. Now I know this next year will be full and intense, but its also a step on the right path. That is a good feeling. I still haven't quite figured out how to do the dating thing yet, but I will.
ceitfianna: (Dean and Anna love hurts)
I just had one of those dreams, which felt so real and I didn't want to wake up. For some reason it took place at Harvard, where I was going to look into a PHD program. I'm not sure why I was going there or investigating a PHD, but somehow I'd been accepted so my parents and drove there.

Now there was an awesome building which was a union and my parents went one way and I went another. At some point, I met this guy who I just clicked with and he kissed me, it was a rather amazing kiss.

Then suddenly my plans are changed as we're going to go out to dinner and he's meeting my parents and throughout it, I felt like I was walking on air. The best part of it all was that he looked and me and just smiled without asking me to change. I think I need to start dating again since I like having a guy of my own to kiss.
ceitfianna: (Dean and Anna love hurts)
Work took far too long and I didn't get as much done as I wanted to so I'm not going to think about it.

ceitfianna: (peaceful Demeter)
I just had the best thing happen this morning. There's this cute guy in my archives' class who I think might like me too and he asked me a question while I've been working. Then we ended up talking a little bit about things like break and family and just good stuff. I think after break, I'm going to get up the courage and ask him out.

Also, I'd forgotten how pretty painting my nails makes me feel. At Urban Outfitters, I picked up this lovely coppery nail polish and put it on last night and it just makes me feel prettier.
