@Chiyo Haha! It's the new Cravendale adverts that scare me more. wink.gif And I'm glad you're feeling better!

CTs-

-Considering I had such a terrible sleep last night, I'm in a pretty good mood today! biggrin.gif

-I can actually hear out of my left ear again. Now I realise how much it dulled the hearing in my right ear, too, although the hearing in the right was still better. It feels like everything is extra loud but I couldn't be happier. laugh.gif

phoenix - tsk stop trying to encourage alcoholism on others. My cider did the trick anyway....btw in the UK cider is an alcoholic beverage.


I'm just trying to put the word out that whiskey is the cure all for EVERYTHING. Have a [insert ailment here], take a shot of whiskey*.

Well we just call it hard cider 'round these parts.

--Palak curry+potato+paneer+naan=YUMMY!

--Babysitting in 11 hours. Oi.

--My neighbor's cat is kind of an airhead, but he found ways into our house that we can't really help. Sure, he's cute, but grrrrrr...

--My parents are getting new granite counter tops. The house has been in almost-constant remodel in one room or another for over 25 years.

--90 degrees this weekend. I'm from the Pacific Northwest. Do. Not. Want!

-Please, please, please, please let me wake up early tomorrow so I can 1) finally get my driver's license; 2) beat the line at the DPS.

-I'm going to get over my inferiority complex this school year. I'm going in guns blazing with a bunch of confidence and with little regard for how people see me. Watch me.

-I'm also going to set people straight and flat out say, straight out, my being a rumored emo kid has come to pass. I'm done with the guilt and teenage angst.

-This is the most important year of my high school career. Nothing will stop me!

-Yes. I needed to give myself that motivational pep talk. It's one of those days. (Yes, jacksparrow: your 95th theme for your Royai 100 themes put me in the mood for giving myself a pep talk. Ahem.)

-I also blame my discovery of a different type of music than what I usually listen to. It makes me feel upbeat and determined. smile.gif

-Tomorrow I'm going school supply shopping. Can't wait. It's always fun. Unless all the kindergarten kids are stealing all the college-ruled paper. Then it's not fun. Yeah.

It was a good job to have. I met so many nice people. smile.gif And some them I thought were going to be stuck up. But it turns out that they are some of the nicest people I have met.

Yesterday, someone left a baseball jersey on my front step. It was addressed to me with a note. But the note wasn't signed. So I have no idea who gave it to me. But I thank whoever it is.

To all those going back to school soon, good luck! Remember to rock this year!

Disasterpiece, Pierrot, and jacksparrow: Thanks a lot guys happy.gif. I appreciate the support. You guys will be in my thoughts the next I walk into a class for a socratic seminar. I will speak with as much gusto and assertiveness as a prosecutor! Haha. biggrin.gif

And for those of you who are interested, where I live, the DPS office pretty much waives the road-test as long as you went to driving school/got your permit/are legit in every way before you normally take the roadtest/ etc. and you just about wait in line for the longest 2 hours of your life. And once you get up to the counter, it takes about 5 minutes to process and then boom! You get your license! Which means... I have my license! Beware, all Houstonians! Another teenager has been certified to drive. >:D JKlawlz, I'm a real "cautious" driver. Seriously.

FMAobsessed: I'm sorry about the season being over.

-Now I need to find my wallet. And my keys. My car keys. My dad's gonna kill me when he finds out I lost those, haha.

Little Washu
Lately, technology and I have not been very close...

Only recently, my phone's screen was acting up due to water damage. The lil white square under the battery shield thing, was pink, indicating that it had gotten wet.
Now, this is definitely my fault, as I would bring my phone with me into the bathroom when I would shower, but I would constantly forget to turn the fan on. The phone itself (SAMSUNG Propel, model a767) was 2 years old and sadly, discontinued :< So using the $50 I had left, I went to an at&t store to get a new phone. I ended up getting the SAMSUNG strive, which is very similar to the propel. I was pretty okay with it until I noticed a few things:
The buttons were meshed awfully close together
It would lag when I typed (I text fast lol)
And... the texts were organized in conversations.
This... was what caused me to return it the next day. The phone itself was lovely, and I adored it, but the conversation organization method? Not for me.

So, I dealt with my water damage phone for 2 more days, until today, I went back to at&t today and looked over the phones, coming upon the Pantech Reveal. I played with the store one for a bit, only to realize the buttons were nice and separated, the phone was organized, and the texts were organized in inbox, outbox, drafts, ect. Needless to say, it's sitting beside me right now. My only complain? No notch for me to put my Chi's Sweet Home Chi cell phone charm. But I can deal <3

Before this though, I went to PC expanders to check on my laptop. It's been in there since 7/9/10. The issue? The screen (lol lots of screen issues with me lol) was broken. While there, we found out the model (1600, I believe) was on recall from HP. Unannounced recall, I might add. The motherboard would crash, and the laptop would therefore, die. I hadn't heard from them in over a month, so I went back to check today, only to find out that my laptop is dead ( ; ; ). There is power circulating, but it wont fully turn on or stay on. Since it's been in there for over a month, the man said that he'd give it until Wednesday to fix. If it couldn't be done, he'd give us the paperwork on the recall to yell at HP. After all, that was an $800 laptop, entertainment model. And HP knew about this issue. If it is unfix able, I will be calling HP and demanding some sort of replacement, of the same value (w/o issues).

All this and I have to try to fix some CSS issues for my journal on on dA... anyone good with that?

- Wow it's been over a month since I was last here... I've just been so busy, it's crazy. I need to make more time for myself...

- But in that time, I've had a lot to do. My step-brothers decided they were going to put my father's property that he left them in his will up for sale... He had wanted them to keep it, but I guess they need the money. In a small area like this it will probably take a while to sell. Anyway, because they decided they were going to sell it, my mother and I had to move all of our things out of the place (it's been used by our family as a storage area for SO many years now) and bring them back here... That was a lot of junk to move. Not exactly how I had wanted to spend my birthday, but oh well. We STILL haven't finished sorting it all out... Though there is a bit of a rush to clear it all out before we bring the puppies home. We'll be getting them in just a few days!

- Though, speaking of the puppies, apparently my Riza is the boss of the litter, going around and biting the others to wake them up. XD I'm so proud of her!

- But my mother really needs to stop buying things for them. We haven't even picked them up yet, and she has a basketful of toys ready for them already... A wicker basket that's about 60cm in diameter and 40cm deep. At least they wont get bored and chew up anything else in the house... The first toy I'm going to give Riza is the cow. laugh.gif

- And my mother found out a couple of days ago where I got the name Riza from when she looked up the meaning of the name on Google. But she found out what it meant, and she thought it was a fitting name as well. happy.gif

So, today, I finally got my driver's license. Wahoo~ I can now drive my little hatchback freely. 8D! But, since today is so darn rainy, mom doesn't want me going anywhere, even though I've driven in the rain before (it's not that big a deal to me, aside from using the brakes more often/going slower than usual and turning on the wipers, it's pretty darn simple). But, I guess I can't expect her to stop worrying so much about me overnight, even though she knows for a fact I'm very cautious... and, most importantly, that I'm aware my small vehicle isn't a race car though I'd like to stick some flames on it~

In any case, I guess I'll stick with driving her around to the mall for now. :\ She doesn't seem ready to let me go off alone... well, either that or she thinks I'm the one that isn't ready.
