I love Disney.

I grew up with The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Aladdin. I adore Mulan, which is, together with BatB, my favorite of the drawn animated movies. I also adore Pixar's movies, with Up being last year's best movie and before that, Wall-E and Finding Nemo being generally awesome. If I had to list my favorite ten movies of all time, I'm pretty sure half the list would be animated.

However, The Princess and the Frog... Spoilers, obviouslyCollapse )

Tl;dr: Why, Disney?

So, my computer is in the computer shop at the moment, trying to get better. It was sucking pretty badly - slow as all hell and didn't want to start up sometimes. As it's only a year old, I got a bit tired of it. Anyway, this means I won't be online much. I will, however, try to write a bit and as such I need ideas.

At the moment, I'm mostly into my Changed verse, so any and all ideas for that would be absolutely fabulous. We have winged!Barney, pre-cog!Lily and walk-through-walls!Ted. And a world gone crazy (currently writing one bit with a dragon in it). Any wild ideas are a go, my imagination needs to be further energized.

Other than that, I hope everyone has a nice week. I'll check in from school when I can (because I simply can't go completely without a net-fix) so I'll see any comments :)

(It also means I won't be watching any of the new episodes of HIMYM, NCIS or House until later this week. Please don't spoil me!)

Author's notes: This is my own little 'verse to play around in with whatever fandoms I want. Supernatural stuff, because I love supernatural stuff. It's not one long story, but little scenes here and there, mostly because my muse isn't working with me on longer, plotty stories at the moment ^^ It all started with me wanting to write about Barney (HIMYM) with wings, and then I did this and I wanted it even more. While suffering insomnia, I came up with this world, and the idea of the first HIMYM story. It just sorta grew from there.

School has started up again and I've raced through the first week with almost enough time to catch my breath. The pace we're doing these courses at is... quick. The physics course we're currently doing usually takes two years to do during high school - we do it in fourteen weeks. So yeah, lots to do.

Anyway. Talked to one of the guys in class today. He told me how he stumbled through the last semester - he didn't study for any of the finals but managed to pass all of them.

At first, I was struck by envy - I want to be able to pass these classes without studying too. I study a lot. Today, we were in school 8AM to 3PM, with one hour of lunch (which I spent eating for 25 minutes and then studying), and then I got home and studied some more.

After a moment or two, however, I realized that I don't really want that at all. Sure, I don't see how we'll have use of all the physics stuff in med school - but chemistry, math and biology sure are subjects that are necessary to get through it. And to get through those subjects in med school, I really need to know the stuff now. I can't just have a passing grade in the subject; I need to actually understand what I'm doing.

Now, obviously I won't be able to remember all the stuff we're speeding through, but I will know a lot of it. And this guy (who isn't planning on med school but needs the subjects for some other program) won't. Not really.

My brother used to be the same way this guy is - he never had to study and still got good (passing, at the very least) grades. But at the end of the day, that doesn't teach him a) how to study or b) how to actually commit stuff to long term memory. (It also meant that in the end I got better grades than him, because in high school, a certain studying technique is needed)

Don't really know what the point of this was - other than for me to feel really grown up an cool for realizing that hard work is better than slacking through stuff, at least in a whole lot of cases ^^ (I do need to know when to calm down and not stress and study, though...)

Because fandom is awesome: help_haiti

The sheer amount of people who are willing to do stuff to help is overwhelming. I'm thinking about making a graphics offering. (Can't make fic offering; my muses are way too fickle)

There is like everything there - from tarot readings to care packages to fanfic offerings and graphics and oh my!

Fandom is awesomer than awesomest. Yay!
