@Chiyo What the heck!? I agree with you, Student Finance are some of the biggest dummies out there! laugh.gif They probably expected you to jump into a time machine after receiving that letter! My loans and grants have finally been approved from today, just before I was actually readying myself to give them a really angry phone call because all they did for a month was mess me around. laugh.gif
And I'm sorry about your grandad, but I'm glad he has more time. hug.gif

@Little Washu Don't get discouraged, keep trying. hug.gif A lot of people take a lot of knock backs before they finally get a job. smile.gif

CTs:

-No lectures today...myself and a friend are going to go to the library and pick out a book for our history book reviews and then go to the cinema...we're deciding what to watch when we get there. laugh.gif

-I had a history seminar the other day, and I couldn't for the life in me find the building I was supposed to be in. I stopped to look on a map on a building wall...looked at where I was, thinking "It's somewhere here, but WHERE!?" and then it turned out that it was the building the map was attached to...laugh.gif I'm hopeless!

There is a trainer at the gym that I go to that has the exact complexion of an Oompa Loompa. Now I never understood the whole fake and bake till your orange look. I think it just looks weird and I half expect him to burst out in song about chocolate and how the fat kid hes working with likes to guzzle down sweets.

CTs:

- I'm stressed/exhausted from college application stuff... I have to put an art portfolio together. How do you put .jpeg files onto a CD? I'm guessing it's the same deal as .mp3 files.

- My dog did the funniest/stupidest thing ever just now. She went up to our mirror and started rubbing her nose against it and freaking out. She thinks there's another dog in our house. I couldn't stop laughing. XD

- My art teacher is gonna kill me. I haven't done any of my homework.

- I skipped play rehearsal today. Yeah. I'm a bamf senior. >:'D

- Now I gotta go... and work on college stuff. @____@

@ScarMySoul: It's good to hear your mother is getting better.

@Little Washu: Keep on trying, I'm sure you'll find someone who'll take you on eventually.

CTs:

- My cat just got her claws hooked in the curtain again. You would think she'd have learned not to do it by now, but she's not the smartest little thing...

- I hope I can get some decent sleep tonight.

--So, in my weather class, the professor has been saying all week that the system that hit mid-day today... would hit mid-day today. Great. Nothing I like more than getting just damp enough to be uncomfortable on my way back from class. dry.gif

--At least my Physics exam didn't go terribly. I think I maybe even scored above-average, if I got all of them right.

--I got a really dirty mushroom slice from the salad bar tonight. Since I work in the dining hall, I didn't want to be obnoxious about it--I'd just picked the wrong slice, but I wasn't about to eat it and risk getting sick. They let me get the amount of salad I'd had left for free, at least.

--My friends and I are planning a "death by chocolate" quarter for winter quarter. Every week, we'll make/buy something chocolate and share it. I'm getting chocolate cravings just thinking about it!

--One more day... then the weekend will be here! smile.gif

@Razzy Good luck with all the homework you have to do! happy.gif

@Pyroclasm I hope you managed to get a good sleep. hug.gif

@jacksparrow589 Mmmmm...That Death By Chocolate thing sounds like such a good idea...I could use some chocolate right now! D:

CTs:

-Wow, I'm going to sound stupid to all of you Shonen Gangan issue collectors out there, but I never expected it to be so BIG! O.O laugh.gif

-I have to write a book review...and I seriously can't be bothered...And I actually have to read the book first. tongue.gif I love to read, but the thought of having to review afterwards is depressing. laugh.gif

-My dad's bringing me back some Chinese food after he has finished work...I'm almost salivating just thinking about it!

Thanks, Pierrot's Aria! biggrin.gif

CTs:

- My dad bought me a whole box of madeleine cookies. 8D I can't stop eating them!

- I realize that I have so many songs on my iPod that I totally hate.

- Is it too late to start getting into P!ATD? As in, their older stuff? laugh.gif I'm so not up-to-date with music, heheh.

- Going away to New Hampshire for the weekend~ It's gonna be fun, but I won't be able to work on my art stuff without a computer. XD; So I'll talk to y'all later~

@A Pierrot's Aria: I did, thank you! hug.gif

CTs:

- My mother got her laptop back, so I FINALLY get mine to myself again! ~

- And now that I do, I suppose I better get to work!

- Mmm... Apple Pie in the oven...

CTs:

--So, when I was trying to sleep last night, I couldn't fall asleep until 11PM (late for me--I go to bed at 10PM) because I was cold and I'd been doing homework, so my brain was still in high-gear. Then, I woke up at 6AM, and then couldn't fall back asleep, so I just tried to rest until 7.

--And now, after taking Airborne, my stomach feels weird. In summary, the past 10-ish hours have not been fun.

--At least I enjoyed doing my homework. It's like doing puzzles!

--Going home today. My aunt and uncle are coming over. I'm excited! I just have to get through work first.

-Heahtly again. The doctor gave me good meds. I felt better very soon

-Right now I'm on autumn vacation. One week I've been working, this week (or next week, from Monday) I will be resting and doing chores around the house. So that I won't have stress biggrin.gif.

-Shooting training tomorrow! Yay!

-I am very... moneyless... at the moment. I actually wanted to buy my sister an expensive birthday present. And something for my mom. But it looks like it's her own fault that she won't get a good birthday present. NEVER lend your parents money if you expect to have it back soon. I lent them a good sum and it doesn't look that I'll ever get it back...

-Sisters birtday: Planned to get her a pokemon toy from Japan. You know, there are some good exporters who ship to Germany. Germany is totally pokemonless. No toys, just cards. And I want to get her a plushie. Since it should be a spcial one (rare pokemon or she actually wanted the "black-white" starters, who won't appear in Germany, Europe and even America very soon. Now I dunno if that will be possible.

Are you/did you dressing up at all? Last show I went to I dressed up as Eddie and my girlfriend at the time went as Columbia

They had people in really good costume act out the parts on stage while the movie was playing.

Did you have your toast? or water gun/newspaper?

I'm already stressing tremendously in college. Of all my classes I have, I have a C in Statistics (my teacher is not the best and she rushes through everything) based on like....2 tests that I took. First one I got was a 94, the second one....well it covered material we did not learn, and I figure I got shafted badly by it to get the C...

I believe she said there were 3 more tests and a bunch of quizzes....but its already the midterm....

Can someone provide encouraging words of wisdom or comfort so that I can be confident in raising the grade? Or a success story with a similar situation that im in?

--That physics test... yeah... I didn't do so well, apparently. All I can hope for is that 1) the grader made a mistake or 2) everyone else did just as mediocre...ly as I did. At least the lowest test gets dropped!

--I hate fire drills. Does it not stand to reason that, if you're in college, you've probably figured out what a fire alarm sounds like and that you should exit the building and get to the evacuation point when you hear it? Honestly, just tell us the evacuation point, and I bet 90% of the people will know what to do and where to go, and they'll lead the other 10%

-One of my good friends has a leaky valve in her heart. Her surgery will be sometime in November, and she's really nervous about it. Originally the surgery was supposed to be in July, but her doctors wanted to do some more tests. I've been praying for her and she has other friends doing the same. The fact that she's going through this at age 24 is uncanny. You normally don't hear something like this about people unless they're either 45 or older.

-I need to have 4-5 minutes worth of Scripture memorized by Thursday for a class, and it's not really working out. I hate getting up in front of people as it is. Knuckling down and really focusing on what I'm saying helps a lot, but that's a lot of words to have in your head in two days! I hope I can make it.

- So I've always been able to not care about what other people think about me (actually, just high school kids, whose opinions are the least significant in the world, next to junior high kids). So, can anyone explain to me why my own mother is preaching to me about my "reputation", as if anything the kids say about me in school will, in any way, affect my life? As if a college will deny me on the grounds that the kids in high school think I'm "weird"? My mom needs to stop pestering me. I have high self-esteem, and I find it ironic that is it my mother- and not the high school kids, who you'd think it'd normally be- is trying to crush my self-confidence? D: She's insane (and that's an understatement).

- I'm so angry right now. I need to draw something happy. T^T

Eh, I wore a skirt and some tights and boots, so not really dressing up that much. It was my first time going, so i didn't really know what to expect.
But I am planning on going again sometime, and this time I'll dress a little more... flamboyantly? XD
Fishnets ftw.

Yeah, we brought rice, and my friend bought a pack of some of the props. We also brought an umbrella for the raining scene. Yeah. XD
We were also sitting in the middle of the audience, and at the beginning the people tell us that the audience in the front should through the stuff back, and the people in the back should throw the stuff forwards. So basically, we just got showered with rice and toast and toilet paper. I got so much rice down my shirt. XD

The time warp was fun, though there was so many people on stage there wasn't really any room to do it. :c All the motions had to be really tiny.

-I have no lectures or anything today- So besides being here I'm doing some history coursework, which I've been oddly motivated to do. Well, it is on one of my favourite periods in History (The Fall of Rome; not to say I don't like Rome, I like the whole Roman period, after it, and into Medieval times).

-I had a Latin lesson yesterday and I've noticed that I always say something stupid that makes the teacher laugh. She must think I'm mad. laugh.gif I read and translated "Feminae et puellae clamosae sunt et valde fessi coloni sunt". And just automatically came out with "Wow...I can REALLY relate to these farmers". But I was being serious; "The women and girls are noisy and the farmers are very tired." I haven't been able to get a decent night's sleep this week at all due to noisy, drunken flatmates. laugh.gif

-I've been oddly addicted to Jaffa Cakes lately- they're so more-ish!

-I went into the heart of the city earlier...and got completely lost. I did come across CEX and HMV shops, though, so I know where to get my CDs and DVDs.

-I've come to the conclusion that I'm not hating it here at uni, but I'm not exactly loving it, either. I still feel really isolated; any friends I make I see only when I'm in the same lecture as them.

I already have senioritis and I wont be a senior for another year :1

So I finally got my school's anime club to watch Kodocha, and it went just as planned just as I thought. At first, they all thought: "Wow, this is lame. It's so happy and spazzy, but to a fault..." and then the drama started, and everyone shut up and payed attention, and started asking questions due to their now piqued interest. I'm so happy we were able to make it through episodes 1-4, so that everyone could get a taste of what was to come. A few of them (the underclassman, that is) even asked for the title, of which I gave them and recommended the dub over sub, of course.

Last week we watched Earth Girl Arjuna (yessss) and the teacher liked it so much he went off and bought the box set online.

Almost all the things we watch come from my personal collection. And I must say, I do pride myself in that. Especially since next year, I'll be responsible for said club.

-Myself and all the other flatmates in this hall had a floor meeting last night to sign a new contract. The floor has had more noise complaints than ever before (myself included in making one of those complaints! xD) so we all agreed on quiet time from 11pm and if people got too loud we all has permission to tell them to shut the hell up. laugh.gif

But I also learned how unsafe this accommodation actually is- I liked my false sense of security because I could sleep at night! I had a terrible sleep last night- because it actually turned out that the noise being made at 2 and 3 in the morning were actually STRANGERS that managed to get into the building; and this has been happening on a very regular basis. Loads of the doors don't even close properly.

These same strangers have also been emptying the huge wheely bins outside and riding around in them.

We're all also getting charged for damage to a door that isn't even on our floor because no one on the wing owned up to it.

And to top it all off, there are two weirdos going around the area pretending to be taxi drivers, one of them using the local taxi firm stickers on his car to fool people and offering them free lifts. The other doesn't even bother with the stickers.

This isn't a great endorsement for this place when I dislike being here anyway. <.< laugh.gif

She said that this hadn't happened for a month, and I wonder what exactly causes this...

--Finally living in a dorm with a communal bathroom and a TINY laundry room (2 washers and 2 dryers for 2 floors of 60 people each), I have found that being admitted to college apparently doesn't necessitate that people: wash their hands, clean up after themselves at all, not steal others' toiletries, or take care of their laundry within a decent time frame. I think that these people should be put on cleanup duty for a month--see how they like it. (My roommate and I constantly complain to each other, but the RA's done all she can.)
