-I've went through a trend of being skanked out of money this week. The freakin' vending machine took my money even though the stupid spiral thing didn't complete its rotation so I didn't get anything. And earlier the bus driver skanked me out of my change. xD

-I'm so tired- I actually fell asleep and have not long woke up.

-I think I've finally made a firm decision regarding the uni I want to go to.
Chiyo
Tombow - with airspace currently open has your friend been able to make it back?

Scar - that must be such a relief for you.

FMAobsessed - that would be quite a journey! Must be quite an important book.

- I've never been so aware of planes flying overhead. I always heard them before of course but today I was turning my head skyward.

- I got petrol in a papercut, it was like being set alight.

- Work is so busy at the moment. Sunny as it might be it really isn't that warm but people are acting like they never saw the sun before.

To everyone that commented by my book predicament, it turns out my class didn't even use the book today. Instead we listened to presentations for final projects. I just kept on asking questions about each presentation. That way there wouldn't be time to discuss the book that I don't have.

What's this? It is only 11 at night and I have finished my speech for tomorrow! I thought for sure I would be pulling an almost all nighter. Sweet, I even have time to practice it.

I have another essay due on Friday, at least Friday morning when I go to the computer lab, I get to see the guy I like smile.gif

Chiyo--Ouch! I don't envy you! I've only ever spilled the stuff all over my clothes and non-injured hands and feet.

CTs:

--What part of "shut up; I'm trying to learn" is so hard to understand? I don't want to hear "snarky" (more like dull, obvious, nonsensical, or downright insulting) comments. I want to hear what the prof is saying, and he's hard enough to understand since he doesn't use a microphone, his handwriting is crap, and his slides are in microprint! (The guy who sits next to me must think these actions are either amusing or charming. It might take a clocking with a notebook to convince him otherwise...)

--Although I'm getting better at self-teaching and using the class forums because I don't really understand it.

--Saw some ducks in a puddle on the field by my dorm today. They were just nibbling at the grass, and it was sort of cute.

--So much to do over the next few days. How will I do it all?

I have to find a way to kick this "semester should be over already, so I don't want to do work" attitude already. I have an essay due tomorrow afternoon, haven't started.

I feel the same way. Spring break completely halted the momentum I had going XD

-had our last sim lab on Monday and it went well! Considering how much I dreaded sim I think it taught me the most about nursing of any class/lab/clinical I've ever taken. And now it's done, and I've passed, and I can get back to not being horribly stressed out all the time! Well not all the time...but less of the time...
-As a congratulations present to myself I bought a bottle of ginger liqueur. It's...so good...

--Today at dinner, a guy came up to me and asked if I wanted to be an extra in a Japanese TV drama. Said I'd get $80 for 11 hours. I would have (I need the money, for one thing), but I have two classes and a lab tomorrow, and I'm volunteering at the college of engineering's open house.

--Thank goodness for my dad giving me a crash course in negotiating the library stacks here. I was in and out of the library in 15 minutes! (Though I could spend FOREVER there. All those wonderful old books... Oh. And cute, nerdy guys.)

--Now to write that 5-7 page paper I got those books for. I don't wanna!

--Got a call this morning to see if I could attend an interview for a job Monday morning. Too bad it was right in the middle of classes, but the lady said she'd give me a call back, so I'm hopeful!

Tell me why would you draft C.J. Spiller, you are an idiot. I hate you. And someone will get stabbed if you draft Tim Tebow.

My college has been swamped with huge tour groups. Even though these kids are only like 2 years younger than me, I still feel like they are all innocent. I also realized that the reason why the tour groups are huge because it is spring break for the high schoolers.

When I had to go on tours for colleges, I was the only one of my friends who never missed a day of class to go on a tour. Even though my school gave excused absences for those who were going on tours. But according to my dad, that is what weekends are for.

I got all my classes for next semester! I did have to redo my schedule in the afternoon cause all of my classes were full. But my schedule 2.0 should be all set.

- FMA Vol. 25 and FMA:B TV Guidebook Vol. 3 arrived today. biggrin.gif

- Decided to install Steam onto my netbook. Will be playing Half-Life once again and will probably install SW: KotOR once I borrow my friend's external DVD

- Interviewed another person for iPubs, and he seems like a competent guy. He'll actually get to write articles for us.

- Anime Expo this year has decided to go with an app this year to make navigating the convention a bit better. It also will give people access to specific sellers in the dealer hall/artist alley as well as everything else that can usually be found in the book.

--Grah. Stupid physics takes up so much of my time! Just when one assignment's done, another is posted!

--Well, looks like I'll actually get 5-7 pages out of this paper I'm writing after all. That'd be really nice, actually.

--The two guys who didn't come out for bubble tea afterwards bet me I wouldn't work on my paper today, since it was so nice. Well, not only did I work on it; I finished it! Take that, boys!

--On that note, I love my MLA handbook. It knows all. (Not that everything needs to be perfect--this is just a draft. I just don't want to have to do a ton of revision at the end of the quarter while studying for math and physics.)

Yes, I talked to my professor in the class, about the book that is in New Zealand, and he said he would make sure a copy would be in the library for me. I just have to photocopy the pages I need to read.

My college had a carnival today. I went on rides and got sunburned. I also had cotton candy. And me and a friend think that it would be hilarious to take cotton candy that is white, and put it in an empty cotton ball bag. Then go around offering people some cotton balls. Then we they say no, we will eat the cotton candy.

jacksparrow589 - Haha!! It wasn't quite Cruella DeVille I'm glad to say. The top half of my hair was brown and it turned like a blondish-brown at midway. At the time I thought it would be a great idea to dye my hair midnight blue and when I decided a month later I didn't like it- I tried to get it brown again by getting blonde dye to lighten it. I left it on too long and it went not blonde...but BUTTER YELLOW! And the tips of my hair were orange. I dyed it brown again but I didn't buy enough and it was too light so I just left it before my hair fell out or something. xD

A few months ago I was mistaken for one of my friends who is a black male. Today I found out that four more of my white friends I have been mistaken for my black friend. So we decided to start a facebook group about it.

So today I saw the guy I liked and two of my other guy friends in a group walking. My two just guy friends said hi to me. But R just nodded his head and kept on walking. I wasn't expecting him to have a full conversation, since it was obvious that they were going somewhere. But hi is just a one syllable word. He says hi to me when he is by himself, and we will have full conversations. But sometimes he will act very distant or shy.

He behaved just like that, his voice so professional, his promises so sweet (like thank you for you love, but you shall know, your love is answered!), his movements so elegant...
-I got few photos from him. You can google the pop singer, his name is Filipp Kirkorov
-I even gave him roses and touched his hand. Well, you must understand it was for me like for some of you touching Michael Jackson if he would be still alive.
-When he was walking through the concert hall for a short time, we almost ripped him into pieces from all the love xD good that he had some body guards. I mean, really big ones...
-While the song "flame of love" was playing, I got mom's lighter and turned it on, waving it around. Then tons of other people did the same. Of course i burned myself in the end biggrin.gif.

- Happy birthday, ego. 18 years, huh.
- Celebrated with family and relatives Saturday. A few people came over, we had cake (yet again I underestimated the candles will to live, almost didn't make it in one blow), and there were presents being opened. I got a shiny laptop, a new headset, a desk for my room (something I've been in need of since starting school really), some bathroom articles (like that new razor I've been too lazy to go out and buy) and also my grandmother made me a photo album containing pictures from the day I was born up until today, leaving the last frame empty, to be filled in. That was sweet. The evening was topped of fwith a restaurant visit with my mom, sister and grandma. We had a really good time, and the food was pretty awesome. For starters I tried a plate I can't for the life of me remember what it was called (we went to a Greek restaurant), but it was basically squid in vineager.
- Today, Monday, my actual birhtday, has been alright. Woke up to mom and sister singing "happy birthday" and serving me breakfast in bed.
- I got loads of work to do this week, I'm doing a project that needs to be finished by Monday at LATEST - and I have barely even started.
- But, ignoring the previous sentence, I'm in a pretty good mood, actually, so...

Oh, don't worry, StormGoddess. I'm on a Royai hangover, too. It's ridiculous cuz I've been all bubbly and happy at school today and my friends were like "...What is going on?" I then proceeded to spread my love and joy of Royai, but I got the feeling they didn't really care or get it... so yeah.

I digress, I love Royai. I'm smiling as I type this and I'm smiling as I decide what to write about for my next sentence. ROYAI POWER, GO!!

-What makes it better is I have state testing this week, so I can push the socratic seminar away till next week.
-But what's lame about state testing is that when you're "really smart", it takes you 2 hours max... and then you sit. In your desk. And do. Nothing. You can read or sleep. You may not possess any electronic devices, excluding the calculator during the math test. Depending on my teacher, I may be able to draw and doodle some Royai stuff.
-Stop smiling, dammit! People are gonna think you're crazy!
-My theatre director signed me up' to work as the backstage hand this Saturday for my school's talent show showcase thing. I get paid minimum wage and will work 6 hours. Unfortunately, the Mayweather vs. Mosley fight is the same day and I have to decide between watching that long anticipated match that will determine who will face-off against Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao. The fight's probably going to start around 9 and the house where the party/PPV is being held is 20 minutes away from my school and no way my parents will let me drive that far if I get my license this week.
-So money and brownie points vs. joy and pumped-up hype with free food? Hmmm...

Had a magnificent time at the con this weekend. Was rather disheartened at how many FMA fans had no idea that Brotherhood was related to the manga. Or had never read the manga. Or really how many people knew very little about FMA at all, in spite of saying they did. I thought it was an insanely popular series. What gives?



Am I just old and decrepit for thinking FMA is still cool? Is it all Bleach and Soul Eater now?

It is almost May and I haven't even read April's FMA chapter. I skimmed it, but I never got to read it in detail. April and May are just bad times for enjoyment, too much work.

My cousin proposed to his girlfriend of six years. But they have known each other since they were five. Basically they were childhood friends, who then in high school started going out. Then went to the same college, and stayed together in college. They have such a sweet sugary romance that it is disgusting. But I am so excited for them. His girlfriend is so friendly.

My friend and I went on Omegle today. We told people that we bred turtles. I have four turtles that I breed. Their names are Speedy, Stalin, Star, and Steve. Speedy and Stalin are boy turtles, while Star and Steve are girl turtles.

I just finished high school and got into Catholic University of America on a non-athletic, non-academic scholarship with guidlines state that I must do well as an undergraduate if I am to keep the scholarship. For 4 years I've done well, gpa between 3.7 and 4.0, sometimes fluxuates between there.

My senior year, for the first two trimesters I did well, average GPA around 3.8-3.9. In the THIRD trimester however, and because I'm a senior at my school, the trimester was shorter for us, thus any grade we get greatly alters our grade in a particular class (did not have many grades...maybe two tests that's it) For 3 classes that I did well in the first two trimesters I am extremely worried about my grades. I'mnot sure if I have a C or D...I REALLY do not want a D in any of them. However, in 2 weeks I'm taking finals.

I figure if I do well on finals, and if the only poor grades were in the third trimester, and if all the grades between the first trimester and finals were averaged, I'd be okay.

But I'm extremely nervous about what would happen..
