Friends Only


Thanks for the banner go to [livejournal.com profile] shivering_flame

My journal is now Friend Only. I am pretty easy with adding people, but we either have to have stuff in common, or I know you from somewhere. Please comment if you would like to be added.

My graphics can be found at [livejournal.com profile] grabagraphic and I will be making more of an effort to upload stuff there this year.

Scrapbook

Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special. Think about all your past layouts, default icons, mood themes. How about all those conversations you had via comments, or the huge post in ONTD that you spent all night commenting on. The 2012 Scrapbook Post is a way to help you remember all of that, in a single post.

January-February-March-April-May-June-July-August-September-October-November-December

Time to put my plan into action

I have definitely decided to make my journal friends only, and to start a scrapbook of the year. My only problem is, I am actually that stupid, I don't know what to do so I have a few questions haha!

1. How do you keep the friends only post and the scrapbook at the top of the journal

2. How do you change the journal to friends only (or whatever it's called in LJ settings terms)

3. I currently have a paid account with a layout made by a friend, this will run out beginning of February and I won't be able to reset the paid account up until at least March/April (when I've started work and been paid LOL!) Will my layout change when my account changes back to the plus account?

4. Is there anything else I should know about either the scrapbook or the friends only thing?

I'm going to say thank you here to [livejournal.com profile] kasiopeia for previous information on the scrapbook and coding for it's layout and stuff.

Randomness

So I only managed to do 1 day of the work thing because I was ill today. I did get to the place we were being picked up from, but I kind of needed to because I had the locker key.

I've been in bed all day today, and feel like I've wasted an entire day, though, if I wasn't in bed, I'd have been at the work place, so wouldn't have gotten anything else done anyway.

I've decided that I'm going to start eating healthier after Christmas, try and cut down on junk food before the New Year, so that I can get a bit of a start on it all. Not sure how long that will last though. I do intend to lose weight, a couple of stone at least, so that I'm healthier in myself, and at a decent weight for my height.

I wish it would snow, I don't feel too Christmassy yet, and I think snow will help that. I haven't done anything with friends for a while either, that makes me feel less Christmassy too. I don't think I'll feel Christmassy until the actual day the way I'm feeling right now. I hope that changes, though not much time for that.

I was thinking that when I start getting a wage, I'll be hoping for a permanent account to be available on LJ. I have a feeling I'll be getting a yearly paid one first though, cause I'm not too sure when they'll decide to make them available, and I may not get a wage until the end of April, though it could be as early February or March.

I'm in the mood for...

Fanfiction, specifically well written Bones fanfic consisting of Booth/Brennan pairing, or well written Criminal Minds fanfic, consisting of JJ/Emily pairing.

I haven't really looked for the Criminal Minds one yet, but I've been looking for Bones stuff for ages, and have so far only come across a couple of fics that I can read past the first chapter.

I guess I'm just picky on what I read LOL!

Update on life...

I realised I have barely posted here for a while, so I thought I'd give anybody reading an update.

We have broken up for Christmas from the course, I just have to work 9-6 Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd as part of it, just no more written work until 16th January. It was originally 8th January, but the store we are training for isn't opening for a further 7 weeks from it's original date due to fibre optic internet cables from Denmark going under the area that the new carpark is going to be, the extra weeks are needed to reroute the cables so internet isn't cut off.

The store was originally going to be opening 20th February, it's been put back to around 2nd April. We were supposed to be starting work on 20th February, but due to the knock back, only so many of the new staff are starting on 20th February, the rest will be gradually started between 20th February and 19th March, and we should all be in by 19th March, as we start working before the store actually opens, so we can get used to the store and put stuff out.

We have also been given our job titles and hours, mine is Merchandiser 30 hours, nights over 4 days. This is good because I may be one of the ones that gets to start earlier, due to the type of job I have. The only thing I'm not too sure on is my wage, we have been told that day time starting wage is £6.65 per hour, but night time gets more than that, due to it being, well nights haha!

The only issue I'll have with the nights thing is I will have to make sure I get my [livejournal.com profile] crimeland challenges done earlier than the last minute hahaha! I start work at 10pm so will prolly be getting up from my nap around 8pm LOL!

I'm gutted about this course because the 2 days we are working, 1 is my birthday, and the other is the day I get paid, which means I get to do my christmas shopping on Christmas Eve only, but I am free all week until Thursday, where normally I would be in the written half of the course Monday and Wednesday.

In news that isn't about work, I think I'm getting a wisdom tooth. While it isn't hurting much now, it started off as a small lump in my gum at the back of my mouth, and I prodded it with my finger (as you do) and my nail scratched part of the gum, and it felt hard, like tooth material. I just hope that if it is a wisdom tooth, that the pain doesn't start until after Christmas, and if it does cause me pain, I hope I can get it sorted (if it means being pulled out then fine) before I start work.

All in all, I'm happy I'm getting a job finally, but narked cause of tooth and unpaid work next week.

Too Good To Be True

I thought things in life were going a little too well, that's not normal for me, or my family, there is usually something that goes wrong, at least once a week, normally guarantee it. The past couple of weeks, nothing really has gone wrong, for any of us.

Then we get to today, yeah, it started okay, we were sorting things out around the house, you know, getting things ready for christmas, making room for the table and other things, as you do. Then my mum starting feeling unwell, and of course, due to her health past, she gets sent into hospital. I know it's the best place for her, but they can't give her any medication that she doesn't already take at home, the only difference is via the IV rather than orally.

I just hope she's only there for pain management, and doesn't need an operation, cause, you know, christmas is in 4 weeks, and I don't want her to be in over christmas.

Cheeky Question...

Ok, so my mum came up with this idea that she would use one of those online sites to make me a customised calendar for next year. She wanted me to pick the pictures, but also wanted it to be a surprise too, which I told her, technically that couldn't happen. Then she had the idea of me being cheeky to all my "arty/graphics" friends from my "challenge community place" and asking them if they fancied helping me out. I said I'd try LOL!

So here it is, I told her I wanted a Criminal Minds/Bones calendar for next year, but stores don't do either of those shows in calendar format :(

My mums idea was that some of my friends could make some pictures for me, using caps/promo's from the shows, theming them to the months if you wanted, and then she would pick 12 of those for the calendar, the logic being that although I would see all the images, my mum would be the one picking the final ones, and therefore I wouldn't know what the final product would look like.

Edited to add fave characters hahaha!!!

Bones: Brennan/Booth, Angela/Hodgins, Team - any of those individually too
Criminal Minds: Prentiss/JJ, Morgan/Garcia, Reid, Team - any of those individually too

Edited to add specs found on the website for the calendar, if that will help.

Document Trim Size
Photo Wall Calendar
279mm x 216mm
1650 x 1276 pixels

Sorry for being so cheeky.

Christmas Wish List

So I saw this on a post made by [livejournal.com profile] serialbathera and thought it would be a good idea.

Wishlist
Step One
•Make an LJ post. It can be public or friends only, whatever you’re most comfortable with.
The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes, and these wishes can be anything - from simple (a fan fiction written about your favorite pairing), to medium (a DVD you want), to really extravagant (a brand new laptop or car).
Just make sure these are wishes for things you really truly want.

Step Two
•Skim through your friends list and see who has posted their own wish lists.
Then - and this is the most important part - if you find a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make sure that person’s wish comes true.
Sometimes a person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
If you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you’re never going to use, give it to someone who wants it.

Step Three
• Post this wish list any time after November 1st. Then repost it two weeks before Christmas.

If you need my address to send any of these, email me at kimipie@yahoo.co.uk


1. Fanfiction - fave ships are JJ/Emily (Criminal Minds), Booth/Bones (Bones), Abby/Ziva (NCIS)
2. LJ Layout
3. LJ Moodtheme (preferably to match layout haha!)
4. Detailed instructions on how to make lj layouts and moodthemes, and how to install them
5. DVDs of the following: Bones, Criminal Minds
6. Gift card for Amazon, iTunes
7. Pretty graphics
8. Christmas Cards (returned if you would like)
9. Random Candy
10. For you all to have a wonderful holiday, and that you get all the beautiful things you deserve.

So I Realised I Barely Have A Life...

Yeah, what the title says. For the past year, I've been sleeping, eating, watching TV and job hunting. Apart from the odd trips down to London to see friends and celebrities, and the odd meeting with a friend for dinner, that is literally all I've done.

It's hard because when I was in college and first year of university, I was a completely different person. I went out every so often, like real night outs, with friends. I miss that, and want it back, though lack of cash and the inability to actually drink much makes it hard.

I currently have a 2.5 day course I have to do, because of a potential job in the new year, which means that Monday I am out of the house 9.30-4.30, Tuesday I am out of the house 9.30-4.30 and WEdnesday I am out of the house 9.30-12.30 on the course, currently it's all written work, but starting the week of 28th I'll be doing one and a half days doing the written work, and one day I'll be out doing practical side of the course.

I feel that it's kind of pointless me doing this part of the course, because it's for Key Skills Maths and Literacy, which is basic GCSE's, and I have my GCSE's, A Levels and a degree, but I understand the second part of it, cause it's required for the job.

If I complete this course I will have a full time job (well, full time but minimum of 15 hours - which is technically part time) starting February 24th 2012, which will be fab for me, because it will take me out of the rut I'm in of having no cash, and plenty of bills.

I hope it will also give me the ability to regain a social life.

Crimeland Pimping!!

Hey Guys!

I think you should check out this great community I'm in. If you LOVE Criminal Minds, it's the place for you. It's full of puzzles, games, and fun people.



Don't forget to tell them that [livejournal.com profile] kimi_pie sent you there.

Crimeland People Read LOL!

Heya! This is kind of like an information type post hahaha!

Basically, I would just like to let the people of [livejournal.com profile] crimeland know, that although I've done 10 of the gift giving stuff, I will be making some stuff for the rest of the people too, and will be posting it to the gift giving post. I just had to post the 10 for the max points for the challenge.

So in short, I'll still be slowly doing gifts for the rest of the people who have posted their wish list thingies in [livejournal.com profile] crimeland

My Head Hates Me

So I have a good day, granted I don't get done what I wanted to, but the Internet didn't cut out as much (though it still annoyed me when it did cut out) I watch Bones, which put me in a good mood, I went through caps of Criminal Minds, which made me laugh as I remembered the funny parts, then
I go and read one thing, just the one and it has to be right before I sleep. Now I can't stop thinking of it, and with that comes thinking of other things, things that make me wish I had somebody to hold me and tell me it's okay, that I'm being stupid etc. I hate it when this happens.

Thoughts

I think from the new year, I will be making my journal friends only, or partial friends only, because I'm sick of getting random people commenting with things that don't make sense, and their journals all being blanks.

I'm doing it from January 1st, partially to give people time to decide if they want to keep viewing my journal/add me as a friend now etc... and partially because January 1st is when I do things new for this journal to start with, including a scrapbook thing that I've seen on many people's journals

To Do List Fail

So my plans for yesterday totally went out of the window. I ended up waking up with a headache, and going back to bed until it went off. Then when I did get up, I had some food and ended up going shopping with my mum. Came home and had more food,had a nosy out of the window at an accident scene across the road - looked like an off-road bike and a car got into an accident, though some people were taking the bike away before the police got there :/ Then we took the dog out for a walk - we were out for about 45 minutes with her - so we could walk me sister to her friends house.

When I finally got back in, I managed to gather some images together for the gift giving, though I never got to do anything with them, as I ended up watching Bones all night.

Today, I am going to specsavers as my glasses are rubbing against the side of my head/ear, and they need adjusting as they are giving me a headache (not the lens side, from the pain in the side of my head) then when I get home, I will have some soup and complete the gift giving challenge before I do anything else.

(no subject)

So I kind of have a lot of things to do, some are important, most aren't but either way, they all need doing.

* Complete gifts for [livejournal.com profile] crimeland
* Cut down friends list on Facebook
* Do a bit of job application
* Fill in Declaration for Savings Account and post
* Watch Glee Season 2 (need to catch up badly)
* Screen Cap Criminal Minds
* Sort second external hard drive

I am hoping I can get all of this done tomorrow, though, I think the screen capping and watching Glee can be split over a few days, as much as I'd prefer to have it all done tomorrow haha!
