Current Thoughts:

- Ah...now I have to study, Mandarin lesson was yesterday and I got another one tomorrow, she said she'd do something similar to a quiz...oh no...I just feel like laying down right now, ;_; *stares at books*

I'm tired of finding fans for the 20th Century Boys Manga at just about every Forum I don't go to. Conscription may be my only hope left for this masterpiece, but as it will never see American shores for several years...


http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=6992

ahh it's too bad that the manga-ka didn't want both titles being released at the same time.

in the meantime you can look forward to the live action movie in 2008 http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=9859

It is a shame. I've found a way to get it in the meantime, but it's really rather unheard of stateside, apart from scattered internet users searching for each other. Really a good series. Best Manga I've ever read.

Mini- See, that's another funny thing; I don't consider myself an introvert either. I guess that just illustrates my lack of self-awareness... or just awareness in general. D:

(I should hope you haven't forgotten your dancing at least!)

Well, personally I think feeling like an outsider even with like minded people may be a form of it even if your not sitting in a corner by yourself refusing to make eye contact with anybody.

Oh no I haven't forgotten about my dancing in fact I was thinking of taking it up again. I have this whole wardrobe of fabulous costumes why not?

And they still fit me! biggrin.gif

HAHAHa!! Then it's perfect!!! They can't possibly trace a group of bellydancing palm trees...so we have to do it in a place like Florida. And we have to rob a bank that is near all of the old ppl...then they will REALLY see palm trees happy.gif Yeesss, its soo brilliant and crazy, it HAS to work ohmy.gif

That's it! ohmy.gif
We'll rob Florida and hide out in Hawaii! They'll never find us there!

You're right. It's so crazy it just has to work!!

Popo
You're ALIVE!!!!

Good to see you back, but if you're alive I wonder who that guy Chiyo ate was then? Hmmmmmmm the great mysteries of the forums.

Bah!
So lazy today I need a project. I want to re-arange my friends house but since it's not my house I don't think I should without her permission. However, she is happy about all the other stuff I've taken it upon myself to do.

I think I should re-arange my room instead.

There's nothing like the joy of having a 125lb Great Dane step on your toe first thing in the morning.

...I'm an highly annoyed right now. I just spent a few minutes typing a few paragraphs in FastReply, when my Internet decided that hitting the backspace key meant I wanted to go back a page and lose everything I wrote, as opposed to erasing a typo. Perfect. Just perfect.


Ah, I have had that happen to me a great many times. sad.gif Totally sucks.



HEY, POPO! *headbutts* Get back here soon, you little buttmunch!

Popo is back! Hi! smile.gif

lone- I would've commented on your recipes, but I can't cook at all. I'll probably eat Ramen for the rest of my life.

My thoughts:
-I want to buy the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie!!!!
-I'm getting tired of my Howl avatar. I'll have to look for a different one.
-I reached the conclusion that I don't like humanind. I'll probably like humankind again after I wake up tomorrow morning.

Popo Isn't dead? ._.

I'm still banned from the computer.
Snuck on.

Project due on Friday.
No, Thursday.
My Birthday.

I still need to find a place where I can order the Roy and Ed Movie DX Plushies.

I thought I was done with most of the paperwork to go with this group project. I found out today I was stupid to think that. So thats another 4 hours stuck in the Communications lab tomorrow and 5 on Friday....oh and 4 hours Sunday for good measure. Wanna know something? They didn't do half the work we are doing for the same course last year, and they won't be next year. We've been like some screwy version of lab rats

And I've buggered up my knee. The joint aches when I sit down for longer than an hour, hurts to walk.

moan over, I'm going to go attempt sleep.

Hehe. I was reading some of my old posts, and happened upon the Lent ones. Those were amusing days. happy.gif

I keep telling myself to take the week one day at a time, I'll find some time for rest, things'll work out, I'll get sleep eventually~

But all it does is make me tired. I want this week to be over. Even though I'll have finals next week, at least I'll have full days to study, what with no classes. Wait. No. Curses! I'll have to work on the take-home final. Boogersnappin' tarnations.

YEah, so i spent the better part of the day with idiot lab partner...who apparently cant shut up for 5 minutes. And i TOLD him and i was in the middle of writing 4 papers and i didnt start the assignment that he was working on...and then he kept asking me questions about my paper...that i didnt start working on. ANd i reminded him (getting more and more annoyed) that i have yet to find the time to work on it...and yet the questions kept coming. I mean, seriously..i was ready to choke him...and then he said that he was going to lunch...and didnt come back for almost 5 and a half hours. And then my proff has the nerve to tell me that i have to get back in the lab bc a 1 week break is too long. Hell, she should be freakin' crackin' the whip on his ass mad.gif

And i also cant stand that he trashtalks everyone while they are in earshot...and he says it loud enough so that they can hear him. I mean, honestly, who DOES that?!?! I mean, its one thing to complain over the phone or something about how class went, but dont just say "Sometimes i just wish <insert name of person who is 2 ft behind you here> would shut up...God, her questions are soo stupid, and she doesnt agree with ANYTHING..blahblahblah" And HE should talk...he couldnt interpret a simple signalling pathway...and i corrected him and he still wouldnt believe me.

'Twas the last day of class today. I think I need more school to stall with. I did come out of it with a little more clear outlook on things I can do and directions I can take with short term jobs or long term careers, but still kind of drawing a blank for practical ideas of things I enjoy working at or skills I have, and I've come out with very little more enthusiasm than I had before.

Have however, gotten to planning some short-term things I need to get done. I have a few things to accomplish by New Years.

One of the things that sucks about the library being a state organization is that they have to be very technical about who they hire, when they hire, how they hire, and everything specific, even if it is just for a part time low paying busy work job. sad.gif At a mile and a half away, the library is the only organization that is near enough for me to practically make it there on my own. (Though doing my own transportation in winter would still be a b*tch) I need to find some place that I can work at or learn at in a scheduled manner that I can get to on my own, or easily. And that's nearly impossible, being in a rather rural Minnesotan suburb in the middle of winter. I just need scheduling right now. Working for mom's developing business is as far from strict scheduled work as could be. I need some sort of routine to get into for the time being, and then plan ahead.


What it all comes down to- Work is hard. :C No matter what's being done. Heck, even getting into modeling is a complex business. When you're not being scammed by money-grubbing fakester corporations or closet-pornographers ninety percent of the time, it's still a dedicated undependable career track that requires commitment and competition and all sorts of other really high stress crap. I've entertained a few times the idea of being a model, mostly because I liked the idea of occasionally making a meager paycheck in my spare time for a few hours of dressing up and smiling for the camera. Probably influenced by all the times I've been told 'oh you're so cute and tiny! You should be a model!' But that's not practical, and it'd probably be easier just to go to McDonalds.

I don't think I'm tall enough to be a model anyway.

On another note- I don't think I would like to do writing or art as a main profession, even if just in graphic design or business communications. It might leech out all the fun I have when I do those things in my spare time.

There are more ramblings I have pent up on the subject, but I'll save those for another time.

Mean time- look into the Illustrator's club, set up ebay account, look into local newspapers, prepare articles advertisements and press releases for Mom's shop, call aunt to see if on the off chance she might have any 'insider scoop' on library jobs, look up new classes for next semester, explore other part-time jobs.
Molecular Alchemist
@Quis-yeah, i want to give him a dose of his own medicine...but then i have to deal with him until one of us either transfers, graduates, or dies. And i was going to tell my proff to get midieval on his ass, but that would mean that he would be in the lab with me more often....and that would mean that i would have to do my work while dealing with him...and i suppose when i look at it from that perspective....his slacking really isnt all that bad huh.gif

@Zarp-$20K, huh? Well, umm...im afraid that the school has all my money, so i guess that means that your "hit" will have to be respectfully declined. Thanks though happy.gif Hahaha

CT:
-the thermostat says its 70, but im freezing
-need to finish these papers (you're right Quis....writing for a grade is def less of a motivation than writing for fun)
-maybe pretending that im writing for fun will get these things done
Toby-Chan
I wonder what it says about me, that I suddenly realize one of my primary motivations in doing things right now, is having things to say that will get people to shut up and stop asking questions.


It's just so awkward, when I can't give a short decisive answer about what I'm 'doing' right now. Especially when everyone else my age is practically required by society to go right to college for four years, nevermind that it costs an arm and a leg and some blood and sweat over exams, or else be in a career track. Though I'm not one to fuss a ton over what society expects, I still care at least a little about falling in the 'norm', or at least the category of 'not a total lifeless lazy loser to most of humanity'.

So it really doesn't matter so much what I want to do, but whether I can rightfully at least tell people I'm 'taking a class' or 'working part time', so they'll STFU and go away and let me live in my little world. But that's something only a loser would say! :C

Actually, you just have to be tall to be a runway model. Any other is fine as long as you have a cute face (check), are thin (check), and the modeling world is actually turning away from busty women. Especially in Europe. The model magazines I saw in France were completely full of tiny-chested women. >.>

Flat chested models have always been in, as far as I've seen. Sunken eyed, bony, flat chested, lanky, makeup-sprayed walking coat racks, with just enough breast tissue for their nipples to poke through the fabric of whichever garment they wear. (At least, for runway models and some high-end fashion designer ads) Unless it's for swimsuit or lingerie modeling, in which curvy fit women have always been the rage.


I've looked in to one ad that seems entirely genuine, for a small clothing boutique in the cities that is looking for models for springtime ads, just out of curiosity and the desire to just go for it because I'm sick of badmouthing stuff before I even try. However, they're looking for 5'6'' girls, and I'm 5'5'' (and a half?) at most, though if my mom has anything to say about it, I'm under 5'4'' because that's how tall she is and she will not permit any of her daughters to be taller than she. I don't think it'll be such a big deal with the inch or so, but they also say they prefer sizes 2-6, making me too small, depending on which brand you're looking at. Plus I have no experience. dry.gif I'm gonna stick my neck out and try auditioning anyway; I only have a couple of hours to lose, and who knows? Maybe I'll overwhelm them with enthusiasm.

Ah ha! I found An Inconvenient Truth on YouTube! Required material, it is...I need to make time for it before the final.

I'm tempted to simply wing the tomorrow's oral final...but that would be bad. So I'm going to wake up early tomorrow to write up my responses.

Apocalypto looks like a really good film. The self-congratulatory way Gibson goes on about it in the ads is a complete turn-off, though. :/ He's not doing himself any favors by overcomplimenting his own work.

Of course, i still have that 30 page one thats due Tuesday...but....im not going to think about that right now...

And this last paper that i have to write was going to be a really crappy one...because i figure if everyone else can write crappily, why cant i??....but then, i ran into my proff for that class, who told me that i have a talent for analyzing papers....damn.
