haven't posted in a while!

College is going well so far. Still a little shy with meeting new people (it's the "approach", know what I mean?)

Going to a vigil at midnight for the 9/11 victims...still can't believe it's 9 years...and i never forgot everything i did that day.

--The book I just finished had me totally, completely, and utterly fooled right up to the big reveal. This does not happen very often. I feel so pathetic I could cry. But that would make me even more pathetic, so I'll just marvel in the brilliance of it, instead. (It's not a bad book! I'm just thoroughly disappointed in how easily I was suckered into complacency.)

--I really strongly dislike with a passion just how personal customer service at big-brand stores/restaurants tries to make itself nowadays. At Starbucks, they asked me my name not to call it when the order came up, but just so that they could address me more personally. They're a big chain--they'll forget about me in five minutes! I don't take stuff like that personally!

--I declare tonight a movie night.

- I spent the first 2 days of my 4-day weekend working on art. Awesome. :>
- The Barnes & Noble here is fail. Too bad, because I have a gift card with a buttload of moneyz on it.
- Stomach is killing me. Ugh.
- Went to a bonfire. Now I smell like smoke. But it smells more like cigarettes than a bonfire. How is that possible? .-.
- I wanna write a story or something. But I'm too lazy.

@Pyroclasm He's started again...Suddenly I don't feel so bad for my sister doing the same thing to him anymore, it's really cheesing me off... crybaby.gif

@mellulah I'm sorry to hear that you had to quit your National Diploma, but that's an amazing result! Well done, and good luck with uni!

@DisasterPiece I'm glad to hear that college is going well for you! smile.gif

@jacksparrow589 Movie nights are among some of the best nights! biggrin.gif

@Razzy I hope your stomach feels better soon! happy.gif

-Some of my history books for uni came today...and speaking of uni and the post, I wasn't amused yesterday because a letter from uni came through the letter box, only it was ripped and had been opened...! There's still a package that I'm waiting for, too, and Royal Mail are being really slow about it!

-I've just got a week of freedom left, then I'm moving out to go to uni...I'm really scared. I can take care of myself, but I've always had that comfort of someone else being there. I got another activity schedule and thankfully it looks like there are some alternative activities rather than pub crawls, since I don't drink, that's very relieving!

-I've also been trying to decide on some module choices in advance so I'm not stumped when I get there- I also have some unrestricted credits, so I'm hoping to take some Biblical Studies, too, particularly Biblical Hebrew. Failing that, I plan to take a modern language; I've got my eyes on Italian! biggrin.gif

EDIT- Oh luck of the past month...where have you gone? I just started getting texts from that moronic weirdo AGAIN. I knew him stopping was too good to be true! And when I'm home alone, too! I'm so annoyed, it's like he's toying with me! To see if I could resolve it, I text back asking him to stop contacting me and he just replied "Who am I thn?"
I don't know which Orange contact number to call- none of them seem to be the right one to get a number rejected...I'm going to start ripping out my hair at this rate!! This month has been so rubbish, I just want to hide under my duvet and sleep until next month. crybaby.gif

-my friends invited me to watch movie yeasterday, My dormates invited me to go malling last friday. Unfortunately, i have no money so i spent my day watching tv alone in dorm sleepy.gif

@jacksparrow it must be nice having a book to read and a movie night. It's been several months now having no money to buy a new book and DVD. books here is worth half of my one week allowance. Whenever i go to bookstore i'll check out books for hours and come out buying nothing. So Instead, i have youtube and ff.net. So sad.

@Pierrot there are times where I'm actually like that, like, i felt bad when i need to ignore or reject other people(except when i'm in a bad mood). I always try to be assertive but the guilt is making it difficult. I think that's why i always have trouble scaping an aggresive saleslady in the mall. tongue.gif

@A Pierrot's Aria - That's not good.. You'll have to block the number, or ignore the jerk, and hope he loses interest and stops doing it.

- Felt nostalgic yesterday and played Pokemon Yellow. What a step back in time! How things have changed over the years...

- Though thinking of Pokemon, some of the new ones that have been revealed this week have been pretty cool. I like the dark type cat Pokemon. Finally, a cat that isn't a boring normal type! I hope it evolves into something useful, because I'm going to get me one of those! XD

Life is hard. And we need to get used to it. I already started to do so. Do we even have another choice?

-Has been busy. There will be a test at school. Economy. I hate it more than everything else in this world. And if I fail the test, I will fail the whole year. Yes. That's why I'm spending my free time with hardcore learning

-The GUY I have been talking about... remember? Well, he didn't come to my birthday party with the explantation that he doesn't want a girlfriend because of college soon and that he doesn't want to go any further with me so that it "won't hurt in the end". Oh my, how dramatic xD I don't really am sad cause I hadn't any feelings for him. He was so perfect, but... no feelings... Well he wasn't in love with me either or else he wouldn't say stuff like this. I don't really feel bad about it, I am actually glad it happened as it should.

-Ouch my hand HURTS SO BAAAD... my whole arm and shoulder! That's because at shooting training someone offered me to shoot a .357 magnum... but it actually was fun... even if it really honestly hurts! I'm such a softie biggrin.gif. But today I shot 4 different weapons. That's a new record for me. But don't worry, the ones who worry. I know what I do and I know that I am responsible for what I do. I would never ever even aim at a person. Or animal.

@baquira That's the exact same with me! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who feels guilty for ignoring sales people!

@Pyroclasm Me too. >.< I'm definitely going to block the number now...It just sort of irks me that even with that, he'll still have my number. But I doubt that he'll go out of his way to contact me with a different phone...I hope! laugh.gif

@Chiyo I don't have an option like that on my phone, so I'll have to phone up....thankfully I found their customer service number which was ridiculously hard to locate! laugh.gif And good luck with your interview! happy.gif

-I am the epitome of calm today. I was kind of on the verge of spontaneously combusting last night! But I'm fine now, all is well. xD I just had one of those moments where there was one thing that needed to happen before something snapped, because in general it has been one of those months in which irritating things kept happening and it just eventually built up. But as always with me, the feeling of anger never lasts long! I apologise for my outburst! laugh.gif

A Pierrot's Aria--Hey, we all need to get angry every once and a while. I took up racquetball for that very reason! I'm glad that things are looking better, though! (And I hope the transition to university goes smoothly for you!)

Chiyo--Good luck on your interview!

Disasterpiece--If this has to do with people, you should tell them, but calmly, mind you. I've found that when I stand up for myself, I tend to feel a lot less slighted because I did something about it.

baquira--I do that same thing, since I pretty much have no money. They actually know me at my local Barnes & Noble--no joke! I also go to the library a lot and use Hulu to watch tv shows, though I did actually rent "Shakespeare in Love" from Blockbuster.

CTs:

--On that note, "Shakespeare in Love" is a pretty good movie! At least, the second half of it is. My mom and I had a lot of fun watching it!

--Given how politically charged this past week has been, it's nice to just have a quiet, peaceful day at home. It's just been so screwed up lately. Lots of ranting on my part about how, as long as it's not hurting anyone, why can't we all just live and let live? (Rhetorical question--I'm very much an idealist, and it comes back to bite me sometimes.)

--My dad actually decided to watch NCIS with me a few nights ago. It was rather amusing, since he didn't ask as many questions as he does about anime, but would still make totally off-base guesses, and then complain about why it wasn't that obvious. He's so funny. biggrin.gif

- I was speaking with my mother this morning. She mentioned that her "friend" might be coming down during the school holidays. (He's a teacher.) She said he was a bit nervous about the idea, because he was afraid that it might upset me. We burst into laughter simultaneously.

- Now I feel kinda bad. When I spoke to him on the phone the other day, I suppose I should've tried to be more friendly, instead of just my usual self. I might have scared him a little bit, even though I didn't mean to. I guess to people who don't know me, I come across as moody rather than impassive...

My whole attitude this semseter is different. Instead of focusing on drama, I am focusing on myself and being a better student. I plan to really focus on my schoolwork. My freshman year of college I had a fantastic gpa, but in sophomore year, it faltered a little bit. But this year, I want to improve it again

My roommate will help me with that. Because she keeps her side of the room neat and will study. So if I see her studying or having a clean desk. I will study and clean my desk too.

I can't explain why I feel happier. But I am at a point in my life where I have just accepted how things are. And it has made my life so much easier to deal with.

-Tired. And afraid. There will be a test next week thursday in economy. And if I won't manage to write a "Okay" grade, then I'll have to repeat the year. So my whole fate, future, what ever is depending on this test. I always did bad before in this subject. But now I don't have another choice. I'm learning every second day for two hours with someone explaining everything to me. I hope that will be enough... You know, if I won't manage, I will just die.

-And that's all what is coming into my sense. So afraid... sooo sooo sooo afraid. And my French teacher decided to write a tiny test on Tuesday. I told her, maybe we will write later since the economy test? But she didn't even want to listen. Great, now I have to learn for two topics. Maybe I'll just forget about French and concentrate in economy. Ugh.

I got it, and she called it Mustang. Its cuteness can melt the coldest of hearts. laugh.gif Our other three guinea pigs are like...3 times as big but they get on brilliantly!

-The intercom went earlier and when my dad answered and the person on the other end said it was the Police...and we thought...'WTF!' We waited and heard the typical policeman-type thumping at the door. And as always when dealing with the Police when you never really have done before, even if you know you've done nothing wrong, you feel guilty as hell. laugh.gif I answered the door and it was just my brother!

Disasterpiece- Oh boy, I've definitely been in that situation before. Well do you know what they like or what their hobbies are? You could maybe approach them by starting to talk about something that you have in common with them. Or maybe talk about a class you have with them? You could also maybe see if you could start making friends with one or two of the people in the group (when they're not all together), and you could integrate into the group that way?
