Does anyone know anyone who wants an invite code for Dreamwidth? I've got a few kicking around that I haven't used.

Hello to my (currently small) f-list. Apologies for not being around to comment on other posts as often as I'd like. It has been a pretty busy month. What have I been doing?

-Trying to get back into my usual workout routine. A few different circumstances have made it a bit difficult, but I'm almost back on track I think. Today I did about 3.8 miles in 30 minutes, which is pretty good. I'm still pretty low on the weight lifting, but I guess I need to give it time.

-Trying to complete items on my list. Some may recall the earlier post where I talked about this. It's a little over 150 items now, and some of them will take some time. I've managed to cross a few off my list, though they were pretty minor ones. It's a work in progress.

-Working on RPG Maker! That's right, I'm back into this bitch. I found a nice cache of resources from a Japanese site. They have matching battlecharsets, character sets and face sets, which is pure win. I'll post some screens once I am further in to making it.

-Reading. Not as much fiction/fanfiction as I'd like, most of it has been textbooks and the like. I found some good ones on Social Psychology, Business/Government Relations, and Public Policy in Canada. It cost a good chunk of money (well...good for a high schooler), but I'd say it was well worth it.

-Playing FF7 which I downloaded of the PS3 Network!

Beyond that, it's mostly been other things...visiting family, hanging out with friends, finishing up this year before summer. Etc.

There are some things I'd like to do more of though:

-Make better use of Dreamwidth! I need to start writing fanfic, contributing to fandoms, commenting on other people's posts moar, and so on.

-Go for more outdoor runs.

-Start learning to cook, damn it! I was on my own for a few days a while back and had a hell of a time making anything that didn't involve a microwave or boiling a pot of water T_T

-Cut down on coffee more. I've been trying to go to one cup a day, but I need the stuff like I need air to breathe. It's...so hard.

Anyways, that is the month of June in review. I hope everyone else has been enjoying their month.

I just got this bitch today, so things will undoubtedly be quiet for a while. Here is an intro to any future people I may (or may not :_;) meet.

I am Xenolith, formerly known as pct-rabbit. The PCT stood for Public Choice Theory, which is a political framework that attempts to explain individuals as 'utility maximizers' who do damn near everything under the sun for their own interests. Even things like volunteer work could be explained as people trying to build and maintain their self-esteem, with some people having higher requirements than others. By no means is this the be all end all, and I like to think that human behavior is more complex at times, but it does provide a nice, clean lens to look at individuals through. So while interesting, it shouldn't be taken *too* seriously.

Xenolith is the latin word for stranger, which I chose because...um...I like the way it sounds? BUT JUST PRETEND THERE IS A DEEPER MEANING.

This journal will have a few things in it (eventually). It will have fanfiction or fiction work, or comments on the work of others. It will have occasional ramblings on current events, be they in the news or in my life. It will also have random stuff, like my love for voice actress Laura Bailey or how I fucking hate stripped shirts and popped collars.

So yeah. Hey?
