Some of the pictures turned out nicely. I should make a new DA ID. All the ones I have suck.

Which makes me feel wierd about submitting photos. Even though I do have some really great photos I'd like to put up, I don't want to drown out the drawings and paintings in my gallery with them. :/

Umm... I swear I had something to say...

It worked for a while, but it made a shrieking noise, and scanned only 1/4 of the surface!! laugh.gif

@Tombow-thanks for the teaching congrats. My second class is tomorrow...i hope theyre more awake than the group last week. mellow.gif And Im happy to hear that someone else has had the same prob as me when it comes to choosing groups. I think i (and the smart guy) came up with a solution...we wil plead with the proff to make the assignment a non-group assignment for the gradstudent. Yes, we are on crack...but we have crappy schedules...so it will be hard to meet with our partners....either way, i think it has a 1:1000 chance in working...but we'll try it anyway. cool.gif

@Roy jr-Where are you that you dont celebrate halloween?

EDIT:
Ok, so i've gotten several phonecalls this weekend (including the one that i just got) from ppl that arn't even in the lab that im doing my thesis in....asking me what they should do. I mean, com'mon ppl....call your advisor...that's why you have one. And I told them to call their advisor and read the manual bc im not sure if what i tell them would be kosher in their lab...AND THEY DONT LISTEN! Argh! I'm turning my phone off.

And it just occured to me....how did they get my cell number blink.gif

Yeah, we already have Halloween stuff at Wal Mart.

I think I am going to dye my hair... but what color?

Damn, Korgoth is on Action Saturdays now.

Why am I up so early? I have been up since 7:00.

Holy Crap, this girl called yesterday asking for Morgan. Morgan is the guy whose number apparently used to be ours. I wish he would give his friends his new one.

(What do you put in yours?)
My mom's home-made fried shredded pork. It's delish. <3 And that stuff lasts forever. <33 I wanted to get some eggs to stir in (it turns out all smooth and yellow and yummy-like), but all the markets around here only sell them by the dozen (except for at Longs Pharmacy--they had some packages of four, but that it was like, a dollar per egg) and I can't eat that many by the expiration date. sad.gif

I should be more stringent with the shredded pork. It hasn't been a month yet and slightly over half the jar's already gone. XD...and six more weeks until my dad might come up for a banquet (and restock my "food from home" inventory)...sad.gif

Thoughts!

I can't believe I got up this early (an hour ago--8 am). I had to write a letter to people about my Perkins Loan--apparently, I'm currently in my grace period. Which I'm not. Which means that they start billing me in June 2007. While I'm still in school, probably being your stereotypical poor college student who can't pay back loans because--whoa!--she's still in school. (I'm miffed about that.) Wait, what was my point? Oh, yes--so I happened to open my eyes some time around 8:00, and noticed that the sun was out and shining (no rain = no need for an umbrella yet!) and thought about what I need to do today, and somehow ended up composing in my head a short but business-like letter of miffness to the ACS Education Services. I was excited about getting this tedious task done and over with, so I just got up and typed it. Now, all I need to do is get an envelope.

Speaking of letters and envelopes, I suddenly have an urge to snail mail hand-written letters. Email and text messaging has made the written form of communication much quicker, yet you lose the sense of the person in the even and regular font. (Even if you use some crazy or colorful font, it's still regular.) And the instantaneity of electronic messaging robs the from recipient the opportunity to await eagerly for an expected letter. So I think I'm going to write letters to friends from home once I find their current addresses.

Or maybe I'll write a letter to myself. I can store it in some obscure place in my room that won't see the light of day until I move out. That way, I'll have several months during which to forget about it and be surprised yet somewhat amused when I do find it.

Man, my stepdad sucks at grocery shopping. He always buys expensive crap that only he likes, and a bunch of other stuff that nobody else wants. And then he tries to play the card that he takes so much effort to go out grocery shopping sometimes, and pays HIS OWN MONEY (zomg!) and takes an hour out of his week just to buy food for us (Food that nobody likes, and really, he says that as if groceries are only for us and it's not like it's something he could benefit from), so we really should "do more for him". :/

If he put the same amount of concern and money into getting food as he does for buying fishing lures and expensive crap for himself that he doesn't need, it wouldn't be so bad.

I'm freakin' tired.

I was at the flea market at 5:30am this morning. I sold some stuff but at first had a crappy spot in the parking lot between a huge UAV (SUV) and a van so I had no breeze and it was hot. Yes the parking lot, long story and I'm too tired to relive it right now.

Then, I was offered a small spot by someone who felt sorry for me sitting by my lonesome. I did a little better there and had good company as well. I got rid of alot of junk and made some cash. Next weekend will be Super Extra Cheap day since it will be my last weekend.

I should really pack some more but I'm about to fall asleep. I'll just get up early tomorrow.

Actually I wish you lived closer, I just gave a big bag of art supplies away to an school. I was hoping I could give it to a starving artist I know but alas, my artist friends are no longer starving and people don't really buy used art supplies. I had to give my big drawing board away. I though some poor art school student would snatch that up.

Thoughts!

Ahh, I've gotten to be so sentimental. I started crying while watching My Girl. But it's so easy to get emotionally involved with drama shows when no one's watching.

Shoot! I still have an essay to write for Chinese.

It's been a while since my dad said anything about the type of courses I'm taking, but he brought it up again when I talked to him today. Here's the gist of it:

Dad: You know, it's good that you're managing your courses so well...but it's also important that you take the right courses.
Me: Uh huh.
Dad: It'll be easier to find a job these days if you have a background in math and science.
Me: Uh...
Dad: Like your cousins. They're working at that pharmaceutical company your oldest cousin is at. They're making good money, too.
Me: Um, yeah... [thinking to myself: *They hate their jobs! They only reason they're at that company is because their oldest brother got them in!*]
Dad: Not like your brother.
Me: ... [*Here we go...*]
Dad: So what if he went to a prestigious university--it doesn't mean anything if he didn't take the classes that would land him a high-paying job.
Me: Uh...
Dad: I warned him, but he never listened. He just did what he wanted to do. You know, it hurts when your kids don't listen to you.
Me: [*SH--!SH--!SH--! etc.--and ouch*]

My mom heard my dad's side of the conversation and asked me about it later. She started griping about how my dad's a hypocrite, not supporting his kids when they enjoy learning the same sort of things he did while he was in school, not noticing how miserable my cousins are at that pharmaceutical company, etc. Then she coached me on how to respond when that topic arises again. I should've taken notes.

Your dad and my dad are like polar opposites--my dad would freak (passive-aggressively) if I told him I wanted to be a teacher. But then, he also wants me to make oodles of money. So I can have financial security, of course.

QUOTE(Molec)

If I weren't so anti-confrontational with my dad, I'm sure I would've screamed all my frustrations at him instead of venting here.

(By the way, have I told you guys recently that I love you all? Even the people I never talk to, as well as our unregistered guests. I feels good to know that people take the time to read the stuff in Penny.)

Anyway, I can see what's driving my dad to have conversations like this. He loves us, I know, and I'm receiving the thought behind it. I get it. It's just hard to let him know that I do without compromising my own beliefs and desires. I guess it'll take some time for him to accept that I'm not a science person, but I'm sure he'll let me do what I want even if he doesn't want me to. That's what happened with my brother, at least. But if this happens, chances are my sister will get the brunt of his, um, sentiments. I'm not too worried about that, though--my sister's a tough girl, and by that time, my brother and I would be in better positions (hopefully!) to support her if my dad goes too far.

Class was alright for a monday.

The four of us that are way too far ahead in the class labs are doing some outside work on this covered walk way. So this is the fun stuff, becasue were putting in the lighting. So just today we were setting up the metal fixture boxes and running/placing the UL calble for the wire.

I need to shower...

I should never have watched that last episode of My Girl before going to class today. Crying in the morning is not a good start. Actually, waking up at 8 am isn't a good start, either, considering that I didn't go to bed till 1:00, and that I caught a chill while I was working on that Chinese essay that I didn't finish until this morning. (That explains the relatively early start.) So now I have a heachache. And my nose has been runny. And it's so goshdarn sunny that it worsens my headache. And I was nearly run over by a bicyclist going slightly faster than walking speed. And I nearly ran into a door--while I was opening it. (I did this weird turn/stumble.) But you know what? I'm in denial. This discomfort will pass in time and I'll be better by tomorrow. I'm sure skipping the Astronomy lecture (the webcasted one, mind) will help.

On the other hand, I think I did okay on the Chinese test today. It wasn't too terrible, and I recalled all the characters that I should have remembered. Pretty good for the two hours of studying that I put in this morning.

I can't wait for my sister to get home from school. I'm going to call her and gloat that I found a pint of the Haagen-Dazs Sticky Toffee Pudding, the winner of last year's Food Network ice-cream contest. She's gonna be soooo jealous. biggrin.gif

It's been ages since I've been on here.

Current Thoughts:
-School is back and I'm not really liking it that much. Our math teacher is really incompetent, well in my opinion anyway.
-We've already started searching for high schools to apply to, and I've got one in mind. Yet it's a specialized high school which means this fall I'd have to take the SHSAT.
So that means studying most of my time away since the math is kinda kicking my arse. >_<
-Our electives this year are kinda better. I've chosen to start taking Go, and while they were giving a lecture on it, I wanted t snatch the board and try some of the extreme Go moves they show on Hikaru no Go. XD
Later on the anime was brought up in a comment someone made. tongue.gif
-My sister has officially started preschool. She especially likes her teacher. And most of my day is spent listening to what she ate for lunch and about the boy who picks his nose. laugh.gif
-Pops bought the Prison Break First Season Box Set on saturday and since then we have dedicated an entire 12 hours to watching just the DVD's. Seems like a Wentworth Miller fanclub branch was started just in my living room. They're squeels and "Ahhh..."
If it wasn't so very fangirlish it be kida cute. biggrin.gif
