PD--Please tell me you're joking. (About not knowing, I mean.)


I saw in the paper that him and his "life partner" or what ever you call 'em were getting a baby or a car or an banana or something like that. So this is the first i've heard about this. Not that I care about it or anything, I just had no idea. You can see how much I keep up on these kinds of things.

I am so nervous for college..

My ultimate fear is not knowing where to go for important things or being out of the loop of important things...

I've always been afraid of that kind of stuff. =\
Carmencita
^Ah don't worry you'll be fine! I alwasy feared the same thing but unless I as absent for like, a week, I was never really left out of anything.

But I wanna know why everyone's going to college all of a sudden and I'm still in highschool... I feel so dumb! D:

CTs:
-First week of school over. Already so much stress is piling ontop of me (and its not all school related so now overeacting here) and people are already being jerks, I hate the education, and one of the teachers scares me (I understand tattoos but please, wear shirts that fit you. I don't need to see all of your tattoos. Dx)

-The Absportion Gate was the LONGEST dungeon in ToA! And by far the most annoying (well without a walkthrough...)!

-Ion DEFIED the system data! That is how badly he wanted screen time! Awesome xD *figured out a glitch*

-I still hate my braces....

I missed this site for the few days it was down.

I need to go back to college. I need to see friends everyday. Don't know if I am ready to get back inot a schedule

I had a dream I was getting married. And instead of wearing a wedding dress I was dressed like Riza and my husband was cosplaying Roy.

Washu - nobody should criticize Nostalgia. Apart from the fact the very word means "to look back upon with affection", how sad an adult must you be to be critical of children's cartoons? FernGully at the time was a wonderful film, and still is to someone who has fond memories of it.

Well, remember the movies I liked as "children's cartoons" were things like Rikki Tikki Tavi and The Last Unicorn ^^; And FernGully just isn't my kinda thing, sorry :/ No need to bite my head off for it

I'm so happy the board is back! <3 biggrin.gif

CTs:
- I went to visit a college in Boston. The college dorm buildings... They looked EXACTLY like Hogwarts. No joke.
- This is what happens when I drink Monster: I download Disturbed, Tool, Rammstein, and Godsmack on my iPod at 3:30 in the morning. Oh boy.
- If I become addicted to Monster, I swear... I won't be happy with myself.
- I love Rocko's Modern Life. biggrin.gif

- Picked up my puppies today. They're so darn cute! <3

- Spending 4 hours in a car with a sleeping puppy in your lap may sound adorable, but they start to get heavy after a while...

- I'm so glad that the election is finishing up tonight. I'm so sick of watching TV advertisements in which politicians bad-mouth each other...

~hayate--A guy, huh? Awesome! Do keep us informed! biggrin.gif

phoenix dying--That would explain it! Generally, I don't pay much attention, either, but I thought he was really cute when I first saw him, and so, in looking to find out what else he was in, well, my hopes and dreams were horribly dashed. tongue.gif Still an awesome actor, though.

Disasterpiece--Colleges usually have a pretty good system for informing students of what they need to know. If you think you're missing anything, I'm sure there's tons of people/places you can go to for help. You'll be fine. Just relax. smile.gif

Razzy--I lived in a dorm jokingly called "Hogwarts" last year! But I'm on the west coast.

CTs:

--Everyone I know is headed off to college and I'm stuck here for another month. Stupid quarter system. dry.gif

--The city libraries have extended the check-out period to five weeks (YAY!) in order to accommodate the 3-week closure of one library for repairs, as well as the normal 1-week closure (Stupid budget cuts. dry.gif x2) at the beginning of September.

--Another crappy weather weekend, another picnic. Boy, we sure can pick 'em... dry.gif x3

--I'm running out of thoughts to put dry.gif for. Shame--I was really getting going! tongue.gif Nah--I have plenty of things to be happy about: another month of vacation, 5 weeks of library books instead of 4, and swimming negates the crappy weather so long as it's not thunderstorms. *knocks on wood*

-Why is it when something goes right, something else always have to go completely wrong? crybaby.gif

-I'm still a little sleepy- I woke up with a horrible stomach ache last night. I find it funny how things like stomach ache and tooth ache or any ache happens during the night. laugh.gif I wish I could go a full day without having a pain in my stomach; I should get it checked out, really...
Chiyo
Washu - I wasn't biting your head off, I'd bite his off if I could. If you looked in to the film and didn't like the storyline, that's different. I thought you were saying you'd only gone on his opinion.

- Spending a day lazying around next to the sea, with a day off work, is completely great. Especially when your relatives feed you until you feel like exploding. Too bad for the couple of jellyfishes that ruined the swimming part of it (as we didn't want to risk getting any bites).
- I have a long weekend off work and it feels great biggrin.gif I can't wait for the first week of September to come - I have another week off there smile.gif And come to think of it, I might keep the leave to transfer to next year or next - long holiday in mind.
- It's too hot here these day, too hot... I do like summer and stuff (mainly for the half-days at work) but seriously? All this heat? Geez...
- My foot's still aching... it'll take a bit long to get back to normal.
- I'm missing FMA like crazy... like I thought it would happen.

Hi guys! ^^

First off, as you noticed, the board was on and off (and down for a chunk of period) this week, and we sincerely apologize!! sad.gif
Good news is that the server on which our board is connected to has been moved to a new facility, thanks to our generous web master, and now we're back in business! ^^ Sorry again for the time the board was down this week!
(Btw, I couldn't let members know what's happening while the board was down...so, I opened Twitter page for our board! ^^)


And on some other board business... there is a recommended change in how members use our Comments section on members' Profile pages, and we ask everyone to read this message: Use of Comments section on member Profile page for on-going chat, Reminder to use our PM instead.


On a good side, I think the Judging Panel for our "Arakawa Appreciation" fanart contest has reached their decisions and we are nearing the announcement of the winners. ohmy.gif We had amazing number of awesome entries in this contest, and I really appreciate our Judges for their great works in choosing all the winners! ^^ Barring any more interruptions, like the board being down ^_^u I think we will see the winner announcement within a next day or so. ^^


Also, just letting you guys know that this month's Shounen GanGan had the re-print of FMA chapter 108 and hence most of FMA fans in Japan had the chance to read the final chapter of FMA now, and hence...sometime soon we'll be switching to a "modified" (less strict ^^) Spoiler policy regarding FMA series final spoilers. But, till then, we appreciate your continuing cooperation on avoiding posting FMA season final spoilers on this thread. ^^


And finally, we understand some of you guys have been off to vacationing, or being sick, or having had other real life engagements, etc. this month, and therefore, started this week, FMA manga Re-reading program is initiating a "catch up" period, and reading only 1 chapter each week for 4 weeks.
If you have been busy, or sick or away, or somehow became behind with the re-reading, (like me XD) this is a good chance to catch up with the re-reading schedule! ^^ For more info please check out FMA manga re-reading project thread. smile.gif

Now that those are out of way, onto my personal post. ^^

Haven't posted here with my personal post for a while, and I got the whole bunch of stuff to reply to...

First to Chiyo with your kind words... thank you, and it's absolutely awesome, especially in a time like this month when I was rather sick for a large chunk of month, that knowing I can totally trust it to your capable hands to keep the forums in a good shape when I'm not 100%. happy.gif
(And, the same goes for ScarMySoul with the Gallery! ^^)


Relatedly, thank you, jacksparrow589, A Pierrot's Aria, Razzy, Carmencita, FMAobsessed, sidekick.kep37 (and sorry if I missed anyone... ^^) for your kind words for our board staff who are volunteers but work hard for the love of our board to keep our board a nice to place for everyone, and it's really nice to see that they get some words of appreciations sometime from our members for all they do for our board. ^^

Additionally, various board team volunteers work very had to keep this board a nice place for everyone, and yes, I think they deserve all the credit! And they get my full appreciations for all they do for our board. ^^


And, thank you everyone for your get-well wishes! ^^

- I was playing Pokemon SoulSilver version, searching for a Yanma on Route 35, when I happened across a shiny Nidoran female, the first shiny I have encountered in my HG/SS games. (Apart from the obvious shiny Gyarados) Deja Vu. The first shiny Pokemon I ever encountered (again, apart from Gyarados) was a shiny Nidoran female in my Silver version. Same Route and everything... Can that really be called a coincidence?

- Also caught the Yanma I wanted. But it had a lousy nature and didn't have the ability I wanted. So I bred it with a Ditto and I'm raising the resulting baby.

- I have a puppy sleeping in my lap. <3 She's kinda hard to type around...

- It was actually sunny today! First day it hasn't rained in over a week. It was a nice change.

Right now I'm playing a game called "Shoddy battle". You can make a team, choose the attacks of the pokes and divide the IV'S, DV's and what ever you need. Since you don't need to train pokes, just "make" them (also choosing natures), all what counts is battle. You fight against people online and the aim is to overpower the other team. Legendaries are usually not allowed. It's fun! Try it out! PM me and we can play or I can tell you how it works!

-So much homework -.- SO good that I have my energy drink here. Not my favorite, a cheaper one, but I don't care right now, I SO need the caffeine!

-Some people want dogs. I want a cat. Badly. So good that the guy I go out has cats. I can pet them ^^

-I made a real tatoo! I was visiting a tatoo master at the weekend and he told me how to make tatoos. I tatooed a pig skin.... come on, what else should I have been tatooing on? I can't try things out on humans or on myself! But it was fun! Also could hold his chameleon. Such a cute animal. I love it!

I sorta panicked a little when the site's server went down. I thought my dad had perhaps tried to block it again for some reason, or maybe that our DSL was a total butt.

What a bummer :/', yet also thinking 'I'm not the only one!! F*** YEAH!'

@Little Washu - I don't worry too much about EVs and IVs at this stage of the game; I only worry about them once I get to the Battle Frontier. I just like to make sure my party Pokemon don't have natures that may hinder their natural abilities, that's all. That, and I wanted a Yanma with Speed Boost, and it was too much of a bother to try to find and catch another one. (Since it has a 1% encounter rate.) Breeding was an easier option.

@Disasterpiece - Hand Banana seems like a creepy name for a puppy. But maybe that's just me and my twisted mind...

@black~hayate - I've heard of Shoddy Battle before, though I've never tried it. I've no doubt I'd get beaten spectacularly, since I have little experience battling against human opponents...

CT:

- It decided to rain when I went to feed the cattle today. And when I say rain, I mean it rained/hailed. It came on so suddenly, and the wind was so fierce! And of course, once I finally made it inside, it stopped. I was soaked and freezing, so I took a shower and cuddled up by the fire in a warm dressing gown, with a mug of hot chocolate. Cozy! ~

--I love babysitting if for no other reason than that I get to play like a little kid again and it's considered normal. Origami isn't as frustrating for me, though. laugh.gif

--Okay, and I really need money. Badly. College makes me budget whether I want to or not. (On the bright side, I really am spending less wastefully. smile.gif On the not-so-bright side, I've set myself up to be a penny-pincher extreme for life. dry.gif )

Well, I started my first day of college today. 8D! It might have been a little lame that I asked dad to stick around with me while I still got used to it, but, I'd say it was worth it; I would've wound up lost like some of the other freshmen in the place. I was still so nervous, though; I even skipped the fifteen minutes of lunchtime we had and sat in front of the next classroom I had to go to doodling, trying to get the edge off. ;A; But, all in all, I guess I had a good day. The classes were pretty well-paced for being two hours long, and the teachers actually knew what they were doing (something that my old school at times lacked, despite being so 'prestigious'). My parents were happy that I actually liked it, even if I was a bit of a mess. ^^

And, my PFYT post for today:

Satoshi Kon died yesterday. He was 46 (very close to his 47th birthday), and lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. He was known for his work such as Millennium Actress, Paprika, Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent, ect. He also had another movie in the works, "The Dream Machine" (or something like that)

I, for one, am very sad to see someone so important to the anime world go. He was like Miyazaki, but with a psycho twist. I hope someone close to him finishes his final movie.

Even though I usually have an extremely high tolerance for pain, I was so close to fainting. T^T Now I can't use my hand for 3 days. Bawww. D:

CTs:
- I hate typing with one hand.
- I've been drawing so much lately. It sucks to take a break. sad.gif
- Oh! I do feel better though, since I'm gonna see Avenue Q tonight! Wheeee! 8D

Razzy--I hope you feel better soon! I'm sure that if anything will help, it will be Avenue Q. biggrin.gif

CTs:

--My "children are so precious" moment of the day: In "paying" for a "meal" at the "restaurant" of the little girl I was babysitting, she chose what I'd use as money. The last thing she gave me was a baby doll, and when I gave it to her, she pretended I'd given her a baby as payment, and acted as though this was completely natural! I just about cracked up. laugh.gif

--Poems, camp songs, puzzles, Chutes and Ladders, and Memory were also a part of our day today. It was fun, and she's such an easy kid to watch. Too bad I don't get to anymore. sad.gif

--It is windy as heck here! Sheesh, what is this?

--I seriously wanna make 7-layer bars right now, but my parents control the chocolate supply, and I need chocolate. (Do I know where it is? Maybe, but if I did, I wouldn't wanna tip them off, would I?)

@Disasterpiece - How did it go? Hope you're all nicely settled into your room by now. ^^

--Okay, and I really need money. Badly. College makes me budget whether I want to or not.

@jacksparrow589 - Heh, welcome to the club! tongue.gif But... at least you got a nice shiny new granite counter tops! biggrin.gif

I hate feeling empty and confused. Why can't I just accept that things are the way they are and move on?

@FMAobsessed - Oy, what happened? Anything you would like to share? (If not, that's all right too ^^) Hope you will feel better soon! unsure.gif

So, I get my new laptop soon. I chose a Toshiba. 320 GB hardrive, and 4 GB RAM, expandable to 8. I was going to get the i3 processor, but found out that would be slower, so I kept the one it had. Either way, the one I got will be pretty good for my WoWing lol.

@Little Washu - Nice!! Did it arrive? How do you like it?

Well, I started my first day of college today. 8D! It might have been a little lame that I asked dad to stick around with me while I still got used to it, but, I'd say it was worth it; I would've wound up lost like some of the other freshmen in the place. I was still so nervous, though; I even skipped the fifteen minutes of lunchtime we had and sat in front of the next classroom I had to go to doodling, trying to get the edge off. ;A; But, all in all, I guess I had a good day. The classes were pretty well-paced for being two hours long, and the teachers actually knew what they were doing (something that my old school at times lacked, despite being so 'prestigious'). My parents were happy that I actually liked it, even if I was a bit of a mess. ^^

@That One Dude - Glad your first day of college went all right! ^^

@Tombow - They are Doberman puppies, their names are Jade and Riza. And I'm sure I can arrange to post some photos in that thread. They're rather large for 6 week old puppies.

@Pyroclasm - Good names! biggrin.gif And, I saw the pics. They are adorable! happy.gif

...You guys are so young! I'll be 24 in a month. My brother's always calling me old, and he's 21.

@Nagareboshi - Pfft, we even have a member who is a 53 years old young retired librarian on our board (fullmetalfemme)! According to her, we're all like, ...kids. tongue.gif

@Tombow Thank you! happy.gif And I agree with you; August has flown by....

-I got my uni starter pack through the post and got my offer for accommodation. I feel homesick already and I haven't even moved out yet! I just looked at the tips they offer to avoid feeling homesick (like bringing a few favourite things) and felt like crying. laugh.gif I'm such a baby! What's worse is that I have to move in earlier than I thought even though my course starts at the end of September...But still, it's exciting at the same time...

All this time I was hoping I wasn't going to be put in a creepy hall of residence...and then what does it end up being? A Victorian mansion. But that's kinda cool. laugh.gif Especially since I'm such a history nut...perhaps unis like to dump all their history students in old/historical buildings? xD

-I thought I was going mad at first, a while ago, every time I went to the main page something had moved and I'm sat thinking "Was that FMA info shrine there before?" etc. laugh.gif But it looks so much more organised now!

- I. HATE. HOT. WEATHER. laugh.gif Can't wait for the 50 degree temps as a high to come back, let alone the -12's.... I'd rather be cold than hot and sweaty.

- There's a bird outside my window that sounds like a baby crying.... the feck....

- I won 25 bucks on a 3 dollar scratch ticket... hooray for winning big! XD Man though if I had an R in this bunch, the scratch ticket was a puzzle one, I'd have one 40,000 ohmy.gif I hate the letter R.... laugh.gif
