Hey everyone ^^ It's been a long time since I've posted but I've been spending more time here recently than I have in the last couple of months, and I thought "Wow, I'd better post, this journal is looking pretty dead..." LOL.

So I'm officially retaking my GED test in October. I think I'll do a lot better but I need to remember to keep up better on my studies. Procrastination, to say the least, is a weakness. I think that's kind of what screwed me last time.

Not looking forward to my yearly eval at work. I thought I would have had a different job by now, but it's funny how things work. Transportation is constantly an issue since I don't have a car yet. But I am still thankful that I have it. That being said, I really need to find a job closer to where I live. ^^;

Also, in fandom news, I think I'm going to try and get into Supernatural. I see so many people talk about it, and I decided to see what it was about. I watched this recap video on YouTube and it looks interesting. I've watched like one episode and then I never watched it again. I don't know why. But if I do watch it when it comes back, I'll let you know how I think of it.

I guess that's it for now! Just popping my head in, but now it's time to crash. Night night, lovelies.

Good luck with your GED and with your procrastination issues. I am the queen of procrastination, so I can empathize with you on that. Also, good luck at work. :)

Oh, Procrastination is my middle name! Do you have anyone who would be willing to nag you about studying? Would that even work?

I hope all goes well, and that you pass with flying colours!

I'm hoping to step out and explore a new fandom this fall myself - Karl Urban's new show, "Almost Human" is looking mighty interesting to me. It'll be hard to follow more than one show in a serious way, but I'm going to try it. Supernatural wasn't for me - I couldn't get into the concept.

I'll say goodnight myself - yikes! It's almost 2 am here!

Good luck! I'm the best at procrastination. I hate out annual evals at work. Good luck with that too!

I haven't watched Supernatural, but everyone I know that has watched it has loved it.

Good luck with your GED! Take things one step at a time and you'll do great.

Supernatural is a fun show but it definitely has its issues. My favourites are seasons one and two, without a doubt. I really enjoy the relationship between the two brothers and the mythology of the show. It's worth watching, just don't get too emotionally invested.

The biggest issues for me are the treatment of women and POC's, when they're even on the screen at all. I remember that seasons one and two were fairly decent in that regard - not perfect, by any means, but decent. Then in season three, we started to see a huge spike in the gendered insults. And the way some female characters have been treated is appalling. There was also bit of one character mocking another's masculinity and using the way 'gay' to do it - it was presented as him being a bit backwards in this regard so the show wasn't condoning it, but it was still there. That particular character doesn't have a problem with homosexuals as people and has never attacked someone for being gay, but he still used that language.

It's been a while since I saw the first two seasons so it's entirely possible that I'm remembering them with rose-coloured glasses. Overall, it's an entertaining show with an interesting mythology and there are some really beautiful episodes. There's one in season one called "Faith" which is one of my favourities. I do feel the show has been dragged out, though, and needs to come to an end. It's become a bit repetitive. But I can't fault the cast and crew for wanting to work.

Hope this helps!

If I remember rightly, they did knock off the 'omg gay' nonsense due to the feedback. There are a lot of great things about the show, but it has issues as well and there's no denying that.

Hope you have fun watching!
