In my tireless quest to figure out what to put into this introduction-to-me post, I stumbled across this list of 55 questions you should ask someone you've just met and I found that the list suited me.

Here's to hoping that you feel the same!

GREAT Questions to Ask Someone You Just MetCollapse )

Shamelessly stolen from goddess47, who stole it from who_la_hoop.

So, I really like the idea of the Pay it Forward initiative: people who comment on this post will receive a surprise from me at some point by this time next year. I am feeling a bit le suck at the moment, and I thought that this might cheer me up a bit, as it's fun sending people mail ♥ Also, I thought it might be a fun way to reacquaint myself with fandom and get to know my f-list a little better.

SO, if you would like to receive a surprise from me at some point, then please leave your name and address on this post; comments are screened! (If you would be alarmed to receive something you will then need to explain to your family, please add that in your comment, and I will send you a postcard or something innocuous rather than fandom related! :D You will know it is from me because it will come from Ohio and I will cunningly sign it Michelle, because that is my name.)

Also, if you want something fandom-related, please specify which fandom in your comment. If you don't, you may or may not get something completely unrelated to any fandom.

It's been entirely too long since I last posted! I guess I got a little distracted by real life. So many things have happened since my last personal post (or even fandom post)!

--The beach trip was awesome. I could go into details, I even meant to, but it's been so long since it happened I feel I missed the opportunity to gush about. So long story short, it was spectacular and I regret nothing.
--Arugala and I are dating now. We'll have been together for six months in November. I still haven't quite wrapped my mind around how happy he makes me. Even when we're not actually doing something together, like if I'm studying and he's just reading next to me, just having him around a makes me happier. I don't get it; my relationships have never been like this before.
--I have another niece! Layla Elizabeth was born on Independence Day (scarily premature!D:). Turns out even my first niece, Alira, couldn't cure me of my fear of babies:'D
--I'm transferring to a new school in January. I finally got sick of Columbus State's (and OSU's) bullshit, so now I'm going to put myself in a terrifying amount of debt at a private college so I can graduate (FINALLY!) with my Bachelor's of Nursing in two and a half years instead of five or more (on top of the two I've already completed-_- Fuck you, too, OSU! I'm not starting completely over again just so you can make a few extra grand off of me!>_<).

Anyway, so stuff has slowed down for the first time since the end of spring and now I've got a hankering to get back into fandom, and write something but I don't even know where to start! Every other time I took "breaks" from fandom I still checked it semi-regularly and just didn't participate in anything. But this time I was completely gone. I don't know what to do with myself.

I was really sad to see I missed the sign-ups for hd_owlpost. It's my favorite fest, even though H/D isn't even my favorite pairing. *le sigh* Maybe next year.

I'm considering doing a fest but I don't know which ones are open right now. Any suggestions?

Also, I hope hds_beltane happens again next year. I feel like I vaguely remember the mods saying the 2014 one would be the last, but I'm not sure. I hope not:( Honestly, I'd be willing to mod it myself if that's the case.

All right, I'm gonna go poke around HP fandom now and see what everyone's been up to while I've been gone:)

Despite the fact that I'm one of the older people on this trip, I feel so much younger. We keep doing things I never had the opportunity to do when I was their age and it makes me feel good.

We walked two miles, one way, in the hot sun, across freshly paved asphalt, for over an hour to get ice cream in the little town on the next island over. The ice cream wasn't really worth the effort, but it was fun all the same. Besides, it's all about the journey, not the destination, anyway, right?:'D

Next door to our beach house, another house is being built. The two dudes working in it are building the shit out of that house. When we got here Saturday, it was barely more than stilts, but now it's got floors, walls, and a bunch of other structures I can't identify. It's impressive.

Anyway, their work site has a port-a-potty in it and I felt like it would be a good idea to put the horseshoe crab we found the other day in it during the night while they were gone. I'm not sure that they'll actually care, but everyone feels that it will be hilarious tomorrow when they find it. Lol most likely they'll just toss it away and be all wtf? but it was worth the mischievous feeling.

We're gonna play some card games in a bit. I will lose horribly, but fuck it. I feel good:)

Found this beauty (dead) in the alley next to our beach house. I put it on the hood of a friend's car. Now to wait for the screaming:D

Four mile walks on the beach in the middle of the night are surprisingly awesome. I even managed to avoid stepping on any beached jellyfish. I was assaulted by a tiny little ghost crab, though. No damage was done, but he startled me.

Also, it turns out that booze turns me into a sassy bitch. And what's more, everyone loves it:'D

a. 12 hour drives suck, especially through mountains (even if they're beautiful).
b. Having friends to keep you awake (because everyone thought it be a good idea to take the drive overnight) and take over driving if you need a break is wonderful.
c. Thank god for Google maps and smart phones.
d. 12 hour drives still suck.
e. Not being able to sleep once arriving because you don't want to royally fuck up your sleep schedule for the week sucks even more.

But on the other hand...
Image large due to my inability to figure out how to make it smaller on my phone--and also lazinessCollapse )

When we first got to the rental houses, we couldn't go in because we didn't have the keys yet, which we couldn't get from the office for another couple of hours, so we just dropped all our junk in the driveway and went swimming:D Couldn't have asked for a better reward for the ordeal of driving!

After two years of being in college, I've only just now started to feel like a college student--or at least what I always imagined student life would be like (kind of). Aside from the academic stress, I always imagined college life to be hanging out with friends in random places, doing things together on a whim, meeting new people, going to parties, trying new things. I never really did that the last couple years. But then again, I'm a generally shy person and therefore didn't make the necessary friends needed for all those things.

But that has changed! I made a friend in my recently finished European History class. We'll call him Arugula (for no particular reason other than it was the first word that came to mind). And guys always seem to have a billion and one friends without trying, so if you make friends with one of them, you apparently end up making friends with all of them.

So now I have this huge group of friends, which I'm unused to. I've always been a bit of a loner; I only had two really good friends before this. All my life I've had a very small group of confidantes around me, and now, all of a sudden, I have dozens of friends who want to hang out with me for no reason that I can see other than they're curious about me and I don't know what to do with it some of the time. I must not have a very high opinion of myself if this is so surprising to me. But in my defense, the kind of friendly curiosity exhibited by my new acquaintances is foreign to me.

I feel good, though. I still get anxious before going to hang out with them, but once I'm there it's easy to relax into it, and fun to see what happens. I'm not a terribly spontaneous person normally, but Arugula and his friends bring drag it out of me. I mean, somehow, they've convinced me that it'd be a good idea to drive all the way to North Carolina with them to spend a week on the beach. I've only known these people for three or four months! I haven't gone on such trips with the friends I've had for half my life!

And yet I'm going. Tomorrow night. We're going to drive all night. I'm both excited and terrified. This is not something that I would normally do. And perhaps that's the exact reason why I'm doing it. You're supposed to try new things in college, right? Go on adventures! Grow as a person! Expand your horizons!

Yeah, it's going to be good. I'm going to have fun, make some memories, and experience life. I'm so excited and terrified!
