Speaking of Watchmen...it horrifies me how many of the 7/8 year olds in the class I work in are allowed to watch 18 films by their parents. I thought they were making it up until the one lad described his favourite scene in Sin City to me. He is obsessed with gore on a rather unnerving level.


Some people in my theatre escorted their children out after/during the scene where the original Silk Spectre was getting raped by The Comedian, haha. Foolish parents should actually read Alan Moore novels before bringing kids to see film adaptations...

Damn...anyone here real good with computers D:? I turned my laptop on and the resolution was set at lowest (so it looks real zoomed in). I set it to highest, but everything's still...too big...anyone know how to fix that D:? Even though it's at highest, everything's still HUGE. And it's so messed up, that video's are delayed because of it, or don't show up at all. This is discouraging...it puts me in a very bad mood...

Worst of all...I can't draw with it like this...with the lack of uploaded deviations my daily average has gone from 73 to 66...

On a positive note, that's the last obstacle to Spring Break. *jumps*

On a negative note, I'm not going home and I have two other papers that I need to on, of which one is due immediately after Spring Break.

Scrabbling for something positive to end with, my paper is done printing and I give my brain permission to shut down in three, two, wah-...................

Romeo and Juliet is odd...one person will state something, another will question it, the other will confirm it, and then the other will restate it. That's not poetic, it's just annoying.

I've written more of my dissertation, but I'm feelinf increasingly disheartened by my lack of responses to the CV's ive sent out to get a job after ive graduated.

Darn.


Don't worry, been nearly two years since I graduated and due to "lack of experience" I never got anywhere when applying for jobs. Plus, you're going in to the market at a really bad point. HOWEVER many companies now too have so many people apply they can be picky about who they actually give the job too. I've seen jobs demanding a degree to be an administrator.

What are you studying?


Hey Chiyo smile.gif

I'm studying journalism, and I don't want to gointo that field anymore- oh dear- I want to go into PR, marketing... Its annoying how everywhere wants experience, but no one seems to want to give it to me. I'm going to apply the- throw everything at the wall and see what sticks method- lol.

On a positive note though, I've nearly finsihed my dissertation, so I'm going to finish today, reread it tomorrow a fair few times, edit and then get it bound Monday morning and submit it. Scary times.

Wow, I haven't posted here in a while!

Last time I posted was, I think, around Thanksgiving. So many things have happened since then!

I don't know if I mentioned this, but in November I got a small part in a school play. I was shocked that I got a part, and even more so that I auditioned in the first place (I had a sudden explosion of confidence on audition day, I guess).

Since then, I have become a less anti-social person. I made friends with people from the play and the anime club, including people who have been trying to be my friends for a while now, but I had been too shy to really get to know them. I talk a lot more now, and I'm so grateful to my friends who made me become the person who I've always wanted to be. <3

So my life is pretty much the best it's ever been.

Oh! And I got my brother's 4-year-old iPod (the video one) for Christmas! But I broke it about a month ago, so now I have an iPod nano. It's yellow and made of awesome~

I'm studying journalism, and I don't want to gointo that field anymore- oh dear- I want to go into PR, marketing... Its annoying how everywhere wants experience, but no one seems to want to give it to me. I'm going to apply the- throw everything at the wall and see what sticks method- lol.

On a positive note though, I've nearly finsihed my dissertation, so I'm going to finish today, reread it tomorrow a fair few times, edit and then get it bound Monday morning and submit it. Scary times.


Well one of my best friends is an old Uni mate and she failed her second year of PR and Marketing, and is now in a PR job. It's just for a charity and she complains about it bitterly, but heck it's a job and she's paid nicely. The other girl I lived with who ended up with a 2:2 walked in to a PR job, but that was through knowing someone in the company.

I had to hand in my dissertation this time of year too, my housemates had till mid-May. While I'd handed it in and forgotten about it they still had it to stress about.

-Well, at least our Physics group (the 3/5 of us present, anyway) made some progress.

-And babysitting was okay, too, I guess. No big disasters, other than spilling rice milk all over myself after the child was asleep. I'd call that a success.

-Don't wanna have school tomorrow... Why can't it be spring break?

Ugh... *looks left* that damn "Twilight" ad...

So I FINALLY get an eye appointment tomorrow! The last time I got new glasses was in 2006, when I first got glasses. Mine are a bit scratched and one of the little nose piece thingies have broken off. Too bad they're so expensive...

So, quite a few things are released tomorrow, some being Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4 (first American released Shippuden game!!), Negima! volume 21 and Negima!? NEO volume 1. Though, I may not get the manga in exchange for a Miku Hatsune Nendoroid. They're so cute >w< I remember at Tora-con, they were selling Christmas Death Note ones, and normal Death Note ones, but no Vocaloid or Lucky Star.

I really want the Rin Kagamine one too, but it'd feel incomplete if I didn't have Len too...maybe they'll have them at Tora-con or Anime North. I'm also hoping to find some of those other neat ones, the Figma by MAX Factory. I really like the Kagami Hiiragi cosplaying Miku one >w> But for right now, I'll just get my Nendoroid. Maybe they'll have Hetalia ones sometime >w>

I need to get started on my History HW. I have buttloads. Bleh.

Maybe when it's dubbed and (I'm assuming it will be) played on [adult swim].

My cat broke two of my Figumates. Both Chachamaru (normal and maid). Chipped the hair and scratched the face of the maid and broke the key(which is hard to come by) on the normal. Of course, the only one(normal) I can find now comes in a pack for $20. A pack that I already have. The maid another set that I already have, for $10. This money could be used on buying that rare Ku-Fei one, or the special Setsuna(s). But no. I have to buy a double because of that damn cat...

On contrary, from what I see, the board activity has increased noticeably in some other parts of the forums recently, IMO, most likely aided by the news of upcoming new FMA series.
But, most of these posts are occurring OUTSIDE of Penny thread, so the regular posters of Penny thread who may not venture out to these parts of the board much might not notice it.
Anyway, please rest assured... the board is not dying. We are very much alive and kicking. biggrin.gif

My current thoughts?
I suppose it's "I sure hope my Mom and Dad don't think I'm weird if they find out I like Fullmetal." I'm the oldest of four, a girl, a home-schooler, and a bookworm. They would not see it coming from me. XD

phoenix dying-- *sighs* No, I don't leave them on that often. This has just been recently. Yes, my car does have an "idiot" chime, but it's not loud, obtrusive, and annoying like the one on the family van. It's a high sound like a triangle, and one can miss it if one's in a hurry, as I was. I know, I know, excuses, excuses...

-Things are seeming slightly more managable as of late. Yay!

-Need. Food.

-Got to watch the same clip of Heroes today in religion class as we did yesterday. Our teacher didn't remember that she'd played it for us before. But it bears repeating, and it wasted five minutes, so I'm good with that.

I've been meaning to ask you, what grade do you teach?
Speedy Alchemist
~ My Life Is Over. O_o ~

(Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I still don't quite know my way around here. ^^; )

Well my brother's becoming an eagle scout, so he's got my parents in a good mood so he figures he'll ask for something so they won't be as likely to say no.
guess what he's asking for?

Fullmetal Alchemist. O_O

Now, I'm the oldest of 4, and I've spent pretty much my whole life trying to please my parents, it's just a personality trait of mine.
I'm not perfect by any means, but I seek approval I suppose. ^^;
I just like them to be happyah.

Anyway, they really don't have any idea about Fullmetal Alchemist, like, at all, I don't think they'd even know what to make of it.
They're very critical with Animes, in their minds it = bad.
But Fullmetal is harmless! I'm almost 18 years old and have seen TONS of things worse then that.

But, I'm worried he'll bring me into it. O_O
He said if they ask about me, he'll have no choice but to tattle on me.

I don't know what to do! I'm all paranoid and freaked out, I don't know what to say if they ask me.
My record is completely clean, while my brother has bad music on his, and my other brother with manga and anime.
My chest is clenching into itself, I couldn't help it, you all know how awesome the show was.
But I don't think my parents will understand, what should I do? anything would help out a lot right now. o.o

I love my parents, but they don't really see things the same way, they think a anime is worse then a R rated movie or something. o.o
plus...I think they might have a History checker.
phoenix dying
@Speedy Alchemist - Ever consider just clearing your history?

The history checker checks deleted history. =.

@Speedy Alchemist - Tell them the truth about anime and how you feel about their veiws, if they choose not to listen then thats their own fault. If you are almost 18..or any age for that matter, you have the right to hold your own opinions. My mom didnt really approve of manga at first because she didnt really know what it was but over time she got used to me liking it and found more about it and no longer has any problem with it. You have the right to your own opinion and it doesnt hurt to argue with your parents once in a while.

Just found out the price of the teaching course....even if I do only have to do the year its still a bit steep for me this year. I'll just carry on getting as much experience in the school as I can and get a part time job, try for next year. I know with 40 days experience I can at least put my name down as a tempory Teaching Assistant.
