Friends only - comment here to be added.
Well, as you have probably seen I haven't been around a lot this year, university is kicking my ass, in a good way but just don't have the time to update anymore so I have decided to go on a hiatus, more than likely permanently, I will be keeping this journal as a record of the four years of my life that I have had it. It has been great and I will miss you all, I have a myspace if you want to add me the address is http://www.myspace.com/pacificallyspeaking
my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd love it if you could email me from time to time too, especially my crowdies friends before the upcoming concerts.
Jacqueline, for the final time
You scored 45% Organization, 70% abstract, and 47% extroverted!
This test measured 3 variables.
First, this test measured how organized you are. Some muppets like Cookie Monster make big messes, while others like Bert are quite anal about things being clean.
Second, this test measured if you prefer a concrete or an abstract viewpoint. For the purposes of this test, concrete people are considered to gravitate more to mathematical and logical approaches, whereas abstract people are more the dreamers and artistic type.
Third, this test measured if you are more of an introvert or an extrovert. By definition, an introvert concentrates more on herself and an extrovert focuses more on others. In this test an introvert was somebody that either tends to spend more time alone or thinks more about herself.
You are mostly organized, more abstract, and both introverted and extroverted.
Most people either love or hate Elmo. I hope you love Elmo, because that's who you are.
You are both somewhat organized. You have a good idea where you put things and you probably keep your place reasonably clean. You aren't totally obsessed with neatness though. Elmo has the same basic approach. His place is pretty tidy, but he doesn't spend all of his time cleaning it up.
You both are abstract thinkers. You definitely are not afraid to take chances in life. You only live once. You may notice others around you playing it safe, but you are more concerned with not compromising your desires, and getting everything you can out of life. This is a very romantic approach to life, but hopefully you are also grounded enough to get by. Elmo's whole life is based on fantasy and his imagination. In the beginning he was a regular character, but now he spends most of his time in this fantasy world.
You are both somewhat extroverts. Like Elmo, you probably like to have some time to yourself, but you do appreciate spending time with your friends, and you aren't scared of social situations. Elmo spends some of his time with real friends, but he also needs some time just to chat it up with his goldfish.
The other possible characters are
Oscar the Grouch
Kermit the Frog
If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback! Also if you want to tell me your favorite Sesame Street character, I can total them up and post them here. Perhaps your choice will win!
My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
|You scored higher than 99% on Organization|
|You scored higher than 99% on concrete-abstra|
|You scored higher than 99% on intro-extrovert|
Modern, Cool Nerd
78 % Nerd, 69% Geek, 43% Dork
For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.
Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

List five songs that you currently love. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now.

is now ready to be posted in, in fact the only piece of Weeds fic I have written this far is already there, the community is open for you all to post once you have joined and anyone can comment.
The second of my two fanfic communiites and the idea for the newsletter have being combined to form weeds_weekly
. it will be updated every Thursday (Australian DST/EST), so that is sometime Wednesday for everyone else here. There are links to icon posts, fanfiction, websites etc this time around, it is a rather large catch-all post for all Weeds fandomy things to date. If I have missed anything/you have anything to add to the community in the future that I might have trouble finding myself could you please either send me an email w e e d s [a t] g h o s t g i r l . g e e k . n z
or reply to the post on my personal eljay privateuniverse
that can be found here
I also need a huge favor, as the last point in this post probably indicated, I'm from Australia and as such can't access sho.com because they are fuckwads, so could someone who is American and can access it please tell me anything major that appears on the site/send any video etc to me so I can upload it to my webspace, if at all possible. Comment or email me if you can do it.
The most important thing is to PIMP, PIMP, PIMP!!!
, Weeds is still a fandom in it's infancy so there is a possibility that I'll miss people if I do it all myself, I'll be making some pimpage banners etc. at some point in the near future and I'll post these here when I do.
Thank you all so much for you feedback and I look forward to seeing some great fanfiction, icons and whatever else.
If you want to become an affilate, contact me by email, here or at my journal.

Now I've finally found homes for all my different journals, apparently online is the only place I like to be ordered, my room, my dorm, my schoolbag all look as if bombs have hit them most of the time, here is a public list of where you can find all my various ramblings.16loverslane
- Public journal, mainly for answering writing memes that required a public journal, this will be updated on an occasional basis (I imagine once a week or so) with new work.jaymakesicons
- Icon journal, currently very infrequently updated due to lack of a decent graphics program, I imagine once I have the iMac and access to a graphics program I'll be updating this more frequently.aiming_to_try
- Original fiction journal, maybe updated twice a year and mostly friends only due to the fact that original fiction is still a very new thing for me and I'm not particularly confident in my writing.femslashqueen
- Fanfiction journal, this hasn't been updated in far too long, simply because i haven't had any inspiration to write but with all that is going on in my various fandoms right now and the hiatus of most of the shows I watch fast approching I'm hoping that I'll be writing here farm more often. privateuniverse
- Personal journal, 99% friends only but comment and I'll almost certianly add you to my flist, updated about every three days, on average, full of memes and whining basically, usual stuff.Bright Yellow, Bright Orange
- Fandom journal, full of reviews and the like, updated at least fortnightly.
