My brother isn't going to give my mom all of the rent she needs, so she's going to sell her laptop and drop out of school. I'm so fucking upset right now I can't even see straight. she worked so hard to get through her associates and make the money to be able to buy herself her first computer ever, and now she's going to give that all up, I feel so sick. My brother's excuse? "If I don't pay what I need to, I can't give you any money at all"....if we don't pay the rent, we don't have a roof over our heads. He's really gonna let his own mother sacrifice like this...I shouldn't be surprised, he doesn't give a shit about anyone but himself and whatever girl he's screwing...

I've spent the last thirty minutes in my room sobbing my eyes out, my mom doesn't deserve this.

first post of 2017

Apparently last night I was posting/editing entries? At least I didn't put up anything embarrassing or wrong. Oh, vodka. You're good to me at least. And while I have the mother of all headaches, it's not too bad. First hangover of the year! \o/

Currently, Maddi is singing Christmas songs (I'm going to strangle her omg) and they're waiting for their mother, who said that she would be here at 10AM. Rule #1: never trust anything that comes out of Bri's mouth.

Since it's the first day fo 2017, it's time to get my pledge tracker and pace tracker set up for [ profile] getyourwordsout. 200k this year (or more) to be written. I've got the Ficmas stories to finish. Two of those are Christmas themed...Christmas in January, still doable. And then I have to start my Stydia Big Bang.

Some new things I'll be doing this year: I'm gonna do an F-List Friday (lovingly nicked the idea from [ profile] aravishermione) that way if I'm not able to keep up with entries, I can still keep up with everyone one way or another. And I'm still working out the kinks on it, but I'm going to be posting the plot and summary I have for my novel that I'm going to be writing this year.

I hope that everyone had a great New Years Eve, and your first day of 2017 is off to a great start. I'm off in search of coffee and my headphones. Oh, and feel free to take a peek at my 2017 Scrapbook, linked in my sidebar on my journal!

It's very possible that Stiles somehow got out of the house beneath the panel in the tub, and is gone. My godmother is coming down to help me look for her, and I keep fucking crying too hard to function. Sophie doesn't understand what's going on, and mom's about to pop the little panel off in her room (that leads beneath the tub). I'm so fucking scared that she's gone :(

EDIT!!! We have found her, she's hiding beneath the bathtub, in the wooden casing that is surrounding it. My godmother peeked in and got stared back at, and poured a little bit of food by the opening of the panel. My guess is she's stressed and scared of the kids after her surgery, and wanted absolute silence. Okay, my panic attack can end now.

TW Reaction Post: 6.01

So it's that time again, meaning it's time for Sara to curl into a ball and cry over the final season of Teen Wolf while trying to make reaction posts that actually make sense!

Also - The new credits are ehhhh so yep, the one from 5B will be used! And this first one goes really fast, sorry about that! I might get more in depth as the season goes on!

Things to remember from these:
-I don't really focus on pack 2.0 except for Mason
-I'll never talk nicely about Theo Raeken, ever. He sucks.
-usually never the same type of post twice

You lovelies know the drill, spoilers ahoy!
-We already knew about the cold open/Sciles scene/werewolf chomping on the guy's head in the high school. LOVED this seen between Scott, Stiles and the Sherrif though. All for helium!

-"They need us!" yaaaaaas they do!!

-Of course Stiles is just laying in the back seat of this car.


-Everyone is oddly comfortable with nekked Malia. Then again, Lydia's a girl and the other two have already seen her nekked so.... ;)

-No please, Stiles tell me more about how you spent three months dragging Lydia out of bed to go supernatural hunting!!!

- Malia's little hair flip, I love it

-Stiles is almost always right, we've figured this out by now yes?

-New teacher...yawn.

-NEVER split up Scott wtf???

-See, this is why you shouldn't split up ;_;

-The way that Stiles kisses Lydia on the cheek and then runs off like he's five is literally the best thing ever.



-The way he's worried about her safety, grabbing her face and shoulders, nope I'm fiiiiiiine

-He tells her not to look at them and not to scream....ok ok

-We got a glimpse of this scene in the jeep before, but we DID NOT get this whole speech and I am crying again WTF

- "Remember how you the first girl I ever danced with? Or how I had a crush on you freshman year? Sophomore year. Senior year? Or how you saved my life? You saved my life too. Remember I love you."

Other things I enjoyed!:
-Stiles constantly interruptin Malia's photo
-Scott being smart as hell
-The sheriff being absolutely done with his two sons
-Malia going to help Lydia
-I did like the interaction between Mason/Liam/Hayden this ep though. But the mains are still my focus
-The Stydia banter (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
-EVERYTHING but the boring new teacher!

Tune in next week for "this show kills Sara and this doesn't make sense at all!!!" This is it guys. First half of the final season. I'm not ready ಥ_ಥ

Okay, now you can read the ficlet that I wrote last night. And icons are on the way!!!

Yesterday was really exhausting. Facebook is a toxic place, folks, never read comments. I've pretty much sworn off social media for a bit. I've decided to try and focus on the positive, if there is such a thing I suppose. I told mom I was going to get a "Fuck Trump" sticker and slap it on my laptop because I'll never accept Hitler 2.0 as my president. I would love for someone to ask me why it was there, because I'm not going to hide my dislike of this guy, ever.

It has been a long, tiring day with the kids and there's no school because of Veterans Day tomorrow. Mom had to call out of work because her feet hurt so bad that she was in tears, and it's going to be a week at least before she can get in with the endocrinologist. First she has to go tomorrow (her day off) and get all of her files faxed over so the doctor can review them. Kevin didn't buy my rock salt lamp (shocker...) but when my sister gives me money in December from her school money, I'm going to buy myself a Kindle. It'll be my birthday present to myself since I'm sure no one else (re: family) is going to get me anything. I'll be lucky if my own father remembers.

But okay, let me distract myself and focus on some positives. Teen Wolf starts in 5 days. I am writing such a happy little ficlet (I think that [ profile] ohrioles is going to approve...). That's about as positive as I've got right now.

Enjoy your weekend, my lovelies. Stay safe.

perfect writing weather

A thunderstorm is rolling around outside, I've got my fan blowing on me and my writing playlist going. I didn't get as much writing done as I wanted today, had some chores to take care of, but I should be able to get some words in before bed/before the girls get here tomorrow afternoon.

I had this thought for my PWE assignment, and you guys always give me such lovely feedback even if I sometimes don't get around to using it so I wonder if anyone has any opinions on this:

So I was thinking since the person I'm writing this for wanted the Hale family alive, it would be the Hale family that started this company...almost like Leverage in a way. It would have been started by Talia and...her husband who has no name yet. Peter would have been involved at one point. Deucalion and Deacon since Deucalion was once an ally before Gerard Argent came along. The prompt calls for person C to be taken care of by person A and B (in this case, Derek to be taken care of by Lydia and Stiles) after a job goes wrong. I was thinking that Cora gets kidnapped by Deucalion in some sort of revenge plot. Kind of close to canon, actually, as he had Cora in 3A. So Lydia and Stiles have to help Derek get her back, while keeping him from doing dangerous things in the process.

Yay? Nay? Go to sleep Sara? (lol)

...yep, that's all I've got for now...

and now the entry i meant to post

Before the fire, I had an entry ready to go, but I sort of scrambled and deleted it. But it was to say that I will be taking yet another mini hiatus. Bri's once again the hospital and school's almost out for Maddi so I'll be spending my weekdays babysitting until at least 5 pm. Thinking about the girls, it's better that they spend most of the summer here. I will be spending most of my free time working on writing and the icon challenges that I signed up for in the month of June. I'll also schedule the rest of the June AMA questions that I got. I understand if anyone is gonna feel the need to unfriend in my absence. I haven't exactly been the best friend lately. You guys take the time to comment on my stuff, and half the time I'm not around to respond. By the time I finally pry the three year old off of me at night, I forget.

I will be working on my PWE fic, my Het Big Bang and my Stydia Fic Fest fics, along with my special project which...*dun dun dun* is centered around Derek and Braeden. That's all I can give away about that *g* I signed up for four (I think) icon challenges for this month. I also reserved Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King (books 3 & 4 of The Raven Cycle) and I'll be picking those up tomorrow. So when I'm not on kid duty, I'll have stuff to do that will take up my free time. I'll be doing my second check in for [ profile] stydiafest near the end of the month.

My sister has also said that she would try and pay me a bit, sort of like being her tutor. I can handle that, at least till she gets the hand of this college thing. She's so unconfident about herself with this. And I hate to say it, but I don't think she's going to be able to hack it because she's also unmotivated. But we'll see.

I'm going to do my best to check in when I can, I'm sure that the girls won't be here forever. But it's going to be longer than weekend. And I know I do this alot. Sorry about that lovelies. But I'll be back soon! ♥

Nothing like your brother putting your mom in a bad mood, and then your mom taking it out on you. I'm sure it's unintentional, but it still sucks. Yeah, I'm done for the night.

snow sucks.

I'm going to try and get some pics of the snow tomorrow morning, though right now it's just loud ass sleet beating down on my trailer. Harley just spent ten minutes staring at the roof. We've got snow piling up at our front door, but it's just too dark and cold to go out and do anything about it. Our neighbor tried to go out riding on his four wheeler, but I guess it was too cold for that. (also it was annoying as hell)

Mom's room was absolutely freezing earlier, but we found the problem. Behind the blackout curtain she put up, there is no storm window! So much cold air was coming in, and we were able to get some plastic up there. So much of a difference! And while I've got my tiny heater, it's kind of perfect for my small bedroom. It's warmer than outside, that's all that matters.

Welp, I'm off to read some Stephen King, curl up in my fox blankie and eat Doritos that I stole from my brother! *evil laugh*

(also, I wrote nothing today dammit. I got distracted)
