Just for uploading.

And I have a fast connection and all... :/

Toby: I know nothing about computers so I consulted an expert on your problem (namely Kit) and he says the following:

1: she has fast downloads, at exspence of slow upload
2: it is a slow/crowded server she is using

Why is the calendar happy?
Because it has many dates!

Then why is it also sad?
Because its days are numbered
*chuckles*

Good morning, all!

I didn't mean to wake up so early, but my roommate opened the door and it squeaked. (Tombow: If it's a ghost, then it's probably been around for quite a while. It seems to have gotten more spiritual energy lately, though.)

So now I'm up. I better finish the Chinese homework. Speaking of Chinese, my group needs to do our presentation today. I've yet to study my lines since Monday, but I suppose I can do that in the hour after the English lecture and before Chinese class.

We have the Astronomy midterm today. The professor just sent us an email saying that it's supposed to be really hard, but I'm still not too stressed about it. I feel that I've been absorbing the material pretty well, though I hope that's not just overconfidence. I'll do more studying later. The grades would be curved, so it wouldn't be too bad, right? Then again, I bet there'll be people who'll skew the curve upwards--there always are.

Weird weather. It's foggy over the bay, but some sun is peeking through on the east side--I think only over a small patch in Berkeley. I hope it doesn't get too sunny.

So I woke up not that early...9am>>
Decided to go get some food, then I when to the living room and there was my older brother in the couch...so, it came to mi mind that he was the one that was gonna help me assemble the book shell I got, and so we assemble the thing. My room was a mess as always so I decided to clean it...I'm almost done, but the bad think is that I didn't got to chat with him, and I have to go to work at 3...and is 2 already>>

I still can't find a bunch of stuff. Sometimes I wonder if my mom hides things from me to force me to clean my room in search of them. It's a good idea, but she's not that underhanded.

Plus, I'd understand her hiding the scissors, or colored pencils, but my acne gel? Still no idea where that is, and this could turn out very badly. So far I'm faring alright without it, but I'm not too keen on the prospect of turning spotty for a week just because I couldn't find the friggin' tube.

It's times like these I do wish I could drive. At least then I could run down to walmart for emergencies. But nooope. Stranded in the middle of nowhere and it's cold.

My lil bro has been watching Bleach on youtube because I dunno, I guess he thinks it's cool or whatever. And the art looks a lot worse to me in the anime compared to the manga. The anime makes Rukia look so much worse sad.gif And I don't know why so many people like High And Mighty Color. I heard one of their OPs or whatever for the show and it sounded pretty awful to me... I think at the end, there was some screamy crap which was just the icing on the cake.
Toby-Chan
Oh that reminds me. There are dozens of aprons all over the new shop, and some of them are pretty cool. I don't remember where I put that lacy one I was going to keep, but I hope I find it again. It'd go great with that one black dress with the white collar that everyone calls my maid dress.

I wish that my dad wouldn't ask "what's wrong?" when he knows I'm on my period. -.-

I had to wash these huge pots, and I mean HUGE pots. One wasn't a pot...it was like a tray pot or something...it was used for the turkey at our friend's place on Saturday (she sent the turkey home with us, in the tray, so guess who got stuck cleaning it. :D). It wouldn't even fit in the sink. >.O So after going through hell washing THAT (took 20 minutes cause even tho it soaked all night, everything was still stuck on pretty badily ><), I had to wash the giant soup pot, cause dad made soup with the turkey. And there was ANOTHER soup pot too, not as big as the other, but still a pain.

It was difficult emptying the pots of water and stuff, and it was getting everywhere. Dad came in when I was working on the first soup pot and I was getting really aggravated. And can ya blame me? I got these hell pots to wash, they're not cooperating with me, I'm making a mess, I'm missing the beginning of my show, and, as we established, Aunt Flow is visiting.

Does he really need to ask what's wrong? XD

Ah well. It shows he cares and he's worried, so it's not such a big deal. <3 It still should be self explanitory tho. XD

In my view, no. A prayer for somebody has more strength as a social motion of goodwill towards another, and it gives the other strength by the fact that there is somebody who is thinking about them in a sincere supportive manner enough to have collected their thoughts into the form of prayer.

Well, I wouldn't be asking for prayers, I don't think, if I weren't religiously-inclined myself. I am Christian.

I have a weird ominous feeling that something is gonna happen, probably a late hint about the New York thing but still, I feel abit uneasy...
Toby-Chan
I'm not exactly psyched for NaNoWriMo this year. dry.gif Especially since everyone's now expecting me to do it and just about everyone in my family read my novel last year. I don't like the idea of having to follow up, and I don't intend to write comedy this time.

I particularly don't like that parenty thing that parents do when their child has done something noteworthy, though now it's just that I intend to do something noteworthy and they're all over it and telling it around.

Of course now when you tell grandma and grandpa over dinner that I'll be writing another novel this year, the first natural reply will be "Oh, well you'll have to let us read it."

Um. No. I don't "have" to let you read it. It's my own dang book, I'm writing it because I want to, and as such I don't intend to write it to please the potential audience, which consists almost entirely of people I'll be dealing with constantly for the rest of my life.

But because there are already expectations and my family is blabbering it everywhere, now I feel creatively stifled, because A- I now have to live up to a certain expectation after last year's mildly amusing comedy, and B- I simply don't want dear Gram and Gramps feeling like they must draw conclusions about why I wrote such a dark epic fantasy. >:C

I don't care so much about people reading my stuff. I care about people who I know and have to face in the future reading my stuff.

I have written A novel. "Published" is another matter entirely.

I did it in a month for the National Novel Writing Month challenge, and that was fun. But now I feel like everyone in my family who read it last year are now sort of 'peeking over my shoulder' in a sense, and it's crippling to my creative process. I don't want to have to censor myself just to avoid a 'very serious conversation' with grandma over whether or not I'm projecting my own dark feelings on "[character who is homicidal/suicidal/angsty/was abused/etc.]".

And if you get the urge to reassure me that nobody will worry or make that association, you just don't know my grandmother. dry.gif Or most of my family for that matter.

I fail at giving advice when it comes to this stuff (plus I haven't been asked for any advice) ut screw it, I'm feeling all [poor] advice givey.
The best thing that comes to mind is just don't enter the contest, claim lack of insparation if you need an excuse.
You said you enjoyed the contest before but that doesn't mean you have to enter again. If you really want to pump out a novel in a month then go for it but nothing says you have to show anyone.

^Ignor this, please.

You're not good at giving advice either? laugh.gif same here, I don't give advice, I just order tell the person what to do, and that's it, I don't give options either, is black or white...
