Hey there, sports fans, I'm nebulia, and I'm your host here.

I'm really easygoing and friendly and crap, but I accidentally exposed my livejournal to some folks in real life who I really didn't want to see what was here, and so I went friends-only. You can comment to be added...but if you just add me, I will probably add you back.

If you are looking for writing, there will not be much of it here. It can be found at con_noncuranza, so head over there. You're still welcome to friend me regardless. :D

So, I'll see you around, have a good time.

aaaaarrrrggghhh

big job interview today! it's a job I really really want and I'm so fucking nervous, holy shit.

I had an interview on Friday for a position I'll like, but this one pays better and I think will be more valuable for my future and more fun and also more hours? So just generally a better job. but I'm SO goddamned nervous, oh my god.

I have recently acquired some new friends via the hockey friending meme on home_ice Welcome to all of you! There's a fairly recent and complete description of who I am and what I care about on my tumblr: nebulia13. Feel free to comment/talk to me/etc. I'm currently living a fairly sad and lonely life so I appreciate any and all company! I haven't touched my LJ in roughly a year and haven't cared much about it for longer, so it's interesting to come back to the site and get back involved with everything.

Usually I'm FO, but I'm keeping this entry public so that if you friended me from home_ice and I haven't friended you back, you can let me know here!

So yeah. that's what's up today, I guess. Hi all!

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fuck. This. Shit.
fma--ed episode 51

from me to all of you--

Everyone:

I wish you the happiest of Christmases, Solstices, Hanukkahs, Kwanzaas, other holidays, general holidays, or Sundays. For those of you who are alone or sad this season, I wish you could come to my house where my family would cook you massive amounts of food and you could sit in front of a warm fireplace. You are all in my thoughts.

Thoughts on moving to dreamwidth will be posted after Christmas, because I'm not dealing with it here or now. D:

Merry Christmas!

oh hey, I can post on this site too.

HI GAIZ FORGIVE ME

I've been keeping up with my flist, but I haven't posted in like a month or something and SO MUCH has happened so I'm not sure where to start.

Actually, this post I'll just talk about the good things, there were a lot, and not the bad things at all.

Went home to Iowa to surprise my mom for her sixtieth birthday. She was surprised! It was great.

THEN THEN THEN my 21st birthday happened and the rugby girls threw me an awesome party and well I mean it was my 21st and it was fucking EXCELLENT and it's great and so yeah, that happened.

Then I went home and my friends from high school and my mom conspired to throw me a surprise party because I told mom I'd never had one (I also told her I didn't want to be the surprisee, I'd rather be the surpriser, but the party was pretty low-key so it was perfect). I was pleasantly surprised without being embarrassed and great fun was had by all.

Then I went to a bar for the first time, it was a gay bar, and HLBF and I hung out with a bunch of old queers (as they described themselves, they were only in their mid-thirties) before smoking weed in a church parking lot. We also smoked before going to the bar, in the park, a five minute hike from the car in the dark and the mud by the creek. It was awesome.

And NOW NOW NOW NOW I'm in fucking CANADA and it's fucking BRILLIANT and I've only been here like an hour but I'm loving it so much. Super super stoked, guys. Gonna be awesome.

So Imma go explore and I promise to update more often, really. I love you.
silly baby

Sorry I've not been around recently: between my class, the musical, and being sick I've been kind of not up for posting. Sigh.

Anyway, though, I wanted to wish all you Americans a Happy Thanksgiving, and everyone else a happy Thursday! Love you all, have a wonderful day. :D
