Welcome and FYI

Welcome. *waves 'hello'* I am delighted that you have decided to visit my journal, for a while. I hope that you enjoy your time here.

For Your Information (FYI):

-This journal and my Insane Journal ( ) were back up blogs for my Greatest Journal ( ). Greatest Journal is now defunct, so my LJ and IJ will just back each other up. (At IJ, my member name is geek_queen. That handle was taken here, so I'm 1geek_queen on LJ.)

-Entries with "Former Post" in the title are older entries from my Greatest Journal. (They also have 'gj post' as one of their tags.)

-I do post spoilers, at various times. Spoilers will be behind LJ-cuts.

Yay, More Flashpoint!

TV FYI: Tonight, October 18th, Flashpoint comes to ION (in the US)! A new episode airs at 10 pm EST followed by another episode at 11 pm. Both episodes will repeat later on in the night at 1 am and 2 am, and will repeat this Saturday at 9 and 10 pm/1 and 2 am. Also, if you're lucky enough to have ION West, you can catch the Flashpoint eps even later, if you'd rather do that.

ION can be found on antenna TV, cable, and satellite. With DirecTV, ION East is channel 305 and ION West is channel 347. At least they are on my channel line-up. Their website has a "Find ION" search box if you need help finding the channel in your area.

To find out more info about the wonderful show that is Flashpoint, check out the producers Facebook page: Flashpoint Team One.

Flashpoint is a great show, with an awesome cast. Seriously, the ENTIRE cast has amazing chemistry together and they're terrific actors. You don't believe me? Go watch the series and find out for yourself. You can thank me later. lol

Writer's Block: Anti-bullying month

Currently, the biggest bully I face is myself or, more accurately, my depression.

I have been overweight since I was a young child, so, as you can imagine, I have had my fair share of bullies throughout my thirty-one years. I've had people send me faux-Valentines just to see my response. (I cried myself to sleep that night.) I've had someone kick my rear-end while I was walking around. I've also had people call me "Shamu" and act like they're in an earthquake when I've walked by them. Each and every rude remark, each and every laugh at my expense dug its way into my brain, stealing my self-esteem and my self-confidence bit by bit. Over the years, I have developed mental problems-- like social anxieties/extreme shyness, severe depression, and OCD. A thirty-one-year-old woman should not live like a hermit just because she's afraid of what may happen when she's out of her comfort zone! So, basically, I have trapped myself into a mental prison, with every bad memory lining the cell walls.

They say it's bad when your depression lasts for more than a year or two. Well, what about depression that has lasted since fourth grade?

Writer's Block: My Journey

If you had the chance to travel anywhere in the world for a year, where would you go?

If I had both the time and the money to travel for a whole year, I would love to travel across America and Canada by car or RV and fly to Hawaii. If I had any time left after that trip, I would love to also travel to various foreign countries-- England, Scotland, Australia, etc. Hopefully, if I had the chance to accomplish this dream trip, I would be able to travel with one or more of my friends.

30 Day TV Show Meme

Day 03 - Your favorite new TV show (aired this season):

I'm guessing the question meant the fall-spring television season and not what we're in now, the summer season. I'm going to go ahead and put both down, anyway. (These are my meme answers, so why the heck not?)

Favorite new TV show during the fall '09-spring '10 season --> "White Collar"
Favorite new TV show during the summer '10 season --> tie between "Rizzoli & Isles" and "Scoundrels" ("Rookie Blue" deserves honorable mention)
