@jacksparrow589 They seriously repulse me, too. >.<; This guy really does really think he is God's gift. dry.gif
But did your Physics test go well? I hope so! hug.gif

@Chiyo Haha! That's a brilliant name, now that git will be forever known as the Campus Tosspot. I just called him Oxford because he looks, acts and dresses like he got lost on the way to Oxford uni. laugh.gif I almost feel sorry for your Campus Tosspot, but he walked straight into that one! Oooh, you're from the Midlands, that's cool! One of my close friends is from there. biggrin.gif (And I hate the 'you're from up North' mentality, too...they must be under the impression we still live in the Stone Age.) dry.gif

CTs:

-Speaking of the ol' C.T. he didn't stop. I had the displeasure of meeting him in Latin yesterday evening as we're in the same class. It was raining when we got out and he said "How are your clogs fairing in this weather?" Then he sort of latched on to just take the mick some more as I was walking home. As he went up the road, I walked down to the Student's Union, and he looked down at me from the wall and yelled "Oh, look, I can literally look down on you now."

-Nevertheless, I'm in a good mood today- I'm off home today and I can stay there for a week because of reading week. biggrin.gif

-I could really use some Jaffa Cakes right now. I can almost taste them. laugh.gif

-Oh no...Chiyo just reminded me it's the 5th of November...It's going to be noisy. laugh.gif

@A Pierrot's Aria: Gah, I loathe elitist snobs like that! There's nothing wrong about making silly jokes, but when they genuinely believe that they're better than everyone else... Nothing in the world vexes me more! mad.gif

- Getting some writing done. ~ YAY!

- I've had Dark Dawn music playing on my computer, and I have to say, I love it. Motoi Sakuraba comes through once again!

CT's

- I am confused with myself . Well, I wanted to finish K-on's last episode and I don't have any idea how
I get to watch Prince of Tennis (!).... I was surprise that instead of watching an all-girl band, I get to see bishies playing tennis... Just what the heck happened to me ??

- anyway, there was this strong feeling of 'hangover' from my two-week vacation. My seat mate in class feels the same way too. I
personally think that we get these 'hangovers' because before, we have loads of exams and projects to be done plus our scout officers
will announce the final decision on those persons who will continue on scouting and those who will not. (
They forgot to announce it due to pressure on their career test smile.gif) )

-My dad is back by the way smile.gif since last last last week(?) .. I mean he works overseas so he deserves a break and some time for us biggrin.gif

jacksparrow589
A Pierrot's Aria--Thanks! I think I did about average, which is just fine with me! hug.gif (<---I don't know about you, but I seriously needed that!)

CTs:

--Well, all things considered, this week could have gone far worse than it did. I don't feel that I did horribly on any given exam. Average at worst (Physics and CSE), 90-100% at best (Bioscientific vocabulary and Weather).

--I'm still sort of in stressed-out midterm mode, even though the week's done and I have only 1 exam between now and finals. Tonight's been a big ball of not-happy feelings. Seriously, I need to snap out of it! dry.gif

--I didn't sleep well last night. I kept on having strange dreams about circuits and at 3AM, a fire alarm went off on Greek Row, and I could hear it.

--Still have work tomorrow before going home, and then I have to write a scholarship essay due Monday, which actually shouldn't be too bad.

CT:

-my date (dunno if it was stipulated as one) last night was amazing. We saw all the monuments and memorials and we sat on the lake where the Jefferson Memorial was and we were under the stars, it was really romantic and we were alone and...well... laugh.gif it was amazing. We had a really great time though it was really cold laugh.gif

-I like this girl a lot now wub.gif we get along really well and we talk about everything together, hope she feels the same way about me, but i'm probably being too modest sad.gif

-research paper this week....this weekend to complete it....ARG


Razzy
CTs:

- Tonight is gonna be busy. But in a fun way. First, it's closing night of the play (that makes me sad...). Then the cast is going to Applebee's, since it's tradition. biggrin.gif

- At midnight I'm gonna see Rocky Horror at a local theater with my bf and maybe some other friends. I'm a Rocky "virgin", so I'm kind of nervous having front row seats. laugh.gif I'll probably get hit with toilet paper.

- I think "I Whip My Hair" is an awesome song. I don't care what anyone else says. XD

- I have a lot of art homework to do. That's what I get for procrastinating.

-*sigh* Labor laws are the dumbest thing...


You can always work as a farm hand. There are usually little to no labor restrictions for minors who work on farms.

That'd be fine if I didn't live in a city and/or didn't have to walk to wherever I work.

So one of my ferrets passed away yesterday. She was the only store bought pet we had.
Her name was Alice, she was albino with a black tail. Her cagemate, Sophie, would always eat all their food before Alice could get any, and I hadn't realized this before it was too late. I separated them and tried to nurse Alice back to her old self, but she was too far gone. We're having her cremated, my mom is going to pick her ashes up tomorrow.

We got Sophie a new cagemate, as ferrets get depressed when they've been bonded and are then caged alone. His name is Zac, and he's really sweet, but it just isn't the same...

I guess people consider ferrets rodents, but I've lost rodents before, and this isn't the same. Ferrets, to me anyway, feel more like a cat or a dog... so losing Alice was very hard. I'm just happy she isn't suffering anymore.

CTs:
-*sigh* I really hate animals sometimes... you just get so attached, and then...
-Going out for bubble tea tomorrow~
-Sophie and Zac do look so cute, sleeping in their lil hammock together...

@Little Washu: Sorry to hear about your ferret. When any animal you love dies, it's always a sad moment...

CTs:

- Sent cattle off to the market today. It was kinda sad... One of them was so docile, since he was sick a lot when he was just a baby, and had to be nursed back to health over the course of several months, to the point where we were literally lifting him up to get him on his feet. Though he recovered, and is all grown up now, (and stands taller than me, even) I feel bad knowing the poor thing is being sent to his death... T_T

- Gah, I'm so tired. Today has been one of those days I just can't be bothered with anything...
jacksparrow589
Little Washu--I'm sorry for your loss. sad.gif It's always hard to lose a pet.

most of all, I'll miss every moment that I'm spending in high school .... well, I still have one year left to plan it all. Right now, I'll relax and enjoy smile.gif

EniviD EiraM--Nearly all of my college friends are into anime more than my high school friends were! You won't be leaving it behind anytime soon!

Scar--Glad to hear you're doing well! After today, it's good to know somebody is.

CTs:

--This morning, I woke up with my ears, nose, and throat all in varying degrees of discomfort. I'm definitely coming down with something. (This is the week after 4 midterms, so while I'm glad it's not last week, it's still annoying.)

--As a result, I'm really, really tired.

--I got my CSE midterm back. 60/100. I only just made it back to my dorm before sitting down and crying. I know if I get a good final grade and do well on my remaining homeworks, I can pull my grade up, but I thought I'd gotten at least a 75. Study/midterm burnout is only partially to blame.

--I need to blow off some steam. If I internalize it, it'll only make it worse, though I know that life goes on and one bad test probably won't matter in the long run.

--I'm definitely hanging with my friends tonight. I need the comfort.

CTs:

- Went to the King Tut exhibit in NYC today, for an art field trip. smile.gif It was very interesting. I've always loved Ancient Egyptian history. But my best friend and I got in trouble for taking too long in the exhibit. God forbid high school students actually take interest in something educational! dry.gif Honestly, I think my friend and I were the only ones who actually enjoyed it. So we took our time to look at things and read stuff. While everyone else raced through it. Whatever. I thought it was a great exhibit.

- And you know, I realized it's kind of sad... These Ancient Egyptians do all this work to set up their perfect Afterlives, and people just take their stuff and put 'em in a museum. I'm sure they'd all be crying if they saw what became of their possessions. Sure, it's great to look at their stuff, but it's really a mean thing to disturb them, whether or not anyone believes their religious beliefs were right or wrong. My friend and I were walking around, looking at all the artifacts, going, "Oh, I guess Tut will be really bored in the Afterlife, since his board games are here. And he's unprotected too, 'cause his dagger is here." XD I dunno, those were just some weird thoughts I had.

- And guess what greeted me when I got home? GIGANTIC FREAKIN' SPIDER IN THE KITCHEN. IRL, I've only seen one other bigger. IT WAS HUGE. Waaaaaahhh. ;______________;

- So I had to do sit-ups the other day in gym. My abs are still sore. o.o And my ribs hurt too. They feel like they're bruised. Geez. XD;;;

- ... I still need to do homework.
jacksparrow589
CTs:

--Still sore about my CSE, but thankfully, it's one of my first finals, so it will receive all of my attention then.

--My weather professor is so amusing. Every time the weather's good (like today), he starts class with, "Lovely weather... It's not going to last."

--Well, apparently I did better on my Physics midterm than a lot of people. This ought to help, considering the unofficial refrain for this week's lab is "everything you know is wrong". Stupid non-Ohmic resistors!

--I'm gonna go see the Harry Potter exhibit at the Pacific Science Center with my mom tomorrow. I'm excited!

Washu - I have a friend with ferrets, and she was very hurt when they died. I don't think people realise how much you can interact with them until they've been around them, and they are far more playful then most cats! Wonderful pets. Sorry for you're loss.

Pyroclasm - I'm thinking of getting myself a couple of chickens. How easy are they to look after?

Scar - Greetings

jacksparrow589
- Your Weather Professor is right, it rarely lasts haha. Have fun seeing Harry Potter.

@Little Washu - I'm little late, but sorry for the loss of your ferret! sad.gif I agree with you that ferrets are more like cats than rodents, and you can have more interactions with them. ..anyway, glad your other ferret got a new cage-mate. ^^

@Razzy - I think King Tut exhibit is great! And, it doesn't come to every corner of the world... only big cities in selected countries. Glad you get the chance to enjoy it. ^^

@Pyroclasm - Ohhh, you're gonna have cute baby chicks?! Are you going to raise them? Hope everything goes well! ^^

@ScarMySoul - Glad to hear that things are gong well for you! happy.gif

@jacksparrow589 - Gosh, I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't score well for CSE midterm! sad.gif Been there, done that and know the feeling! (though it was not CSE but some other course, and fortunately for me I did well for the final and that saved me.)
Hope you will study well, and do very well in the final!

@EniviD EiraM - Hope you are having a great time with your dad! ^^ And, I agree with Disasterpiece and others... college/ university is so much fun, and yes, I think college students enjoy anime also. xd

@Chiyo - Hope your dad and grandfather are doing allright. unsure.gif

@Tombow: Haha, their mother will be the one doing the raising, I'll just be the one feeding them. XD ...Provided, of course, that they hatch. The weather around here has been a bit wet and stormy in the past few days, and thunderstorms during incubation will often kill the chicks in their eggs...

- The EB Games website has listed a date for when Golden Sun: Dark Dawn will be available in Australia... And it's this year! \o/ I won't have to order it from the US after all! I cannot express how happy I am right now!

I understand a lot of people don't have compost, let alone recycling, where they come from, but really, you don't even have to be able to read to decipher these posters!

I just want everything to stop for a little bit. I've just been so stressed the past few weeks, everything's just piling up on me, and I'm worried about everything. I just feel like I keep going going going, but I'm still behind. It's like the world just keeps going faster and faster and I've going backwards. I just want to sleep, to be able to take a deep breath and actually relax for 5 minutes. I want to get a decent night's sleep. I want to be able to do my homework and nanowrimo and dance and roller derby and still somehow have some kind of social life. I'd have to give up procrastination, but it's not like that's ever done anything good for me. I just hope I stop this nonstop stressing and worrying.

- Went into a pet store today to buy something. I never like going into pet shops. I always end up coming out depressed. I hate seeing all the animals penned up so close like that. The crowded tanks of fish, the glass boxes filled with rabbits, and the birds... There were three Galahs hunched miserably in a cage at the back of the shop; that's all they could DO, sit. There wasn't even enough room for them to stretch their wings, let alone fly. And this one kitten noticed me staring at it, stumbled over, placed one of its paws on the glass and meowed at me... ;_; Almost like it was saying "please get me out of here". I would've loved to have taken it home, but we already have four cats as it is... I can only hope the poor things end up going to good homes...
