@Pyroclasm I hope you enjoy your Pokemon game! My brother got Pokemon Black last weekend. biggrin.gif

@Mhacy I hope you can get motivated enough to do your work! >< I definitely know what de-motivation is like when it comes to assignments!

CTs:

-Hurray! I passed my exams! I'm really happy with my results! You could either see an F or a P (Fail or Pass) and when I saw all Ps I was like "yay!". party.gif My friend and I are going for some celebratory lunch later!

-I missed my first lecture today. I got stopped on the way to the lecture by a prospective student and her parents who were lost. They were looking for a building within the student village I live in. I'm terrible at giving directions, so I offered to lead them there instead. I did so, and ended up missing my lecture. But I don't mind. happy.gif That's happened twice now; I must look approachable. laugh.gif

-This week has been going by pretty fast!
Razzy
Scar- Arya is so cuteee~ biggrin.gif

Pyroclasm- The new Pokemon is totally awesomeee. Slow at first, but then it's really cool. XD

CTs:

- I'm half-way done with my AP art concentration. I'd celebrate, but I don't think it's anything worth celebrating, considering I only have 1 and a half months to finish the rest of it. That's what I get for 2 years of procrastination. :C

- Last night, I went to the annual kids' Mardi Gras party (it's organized by the church here) with my friend and my brother. Aside from the parents, we were the oldest people there. XD But it's okay; I ate my weight in cotton candy and hung out with my friend (who I haven't really hung out with in a while). It really was weird, though; when I was younger, at these things they would play Mardi Gras music, not Lady Gaga. laugh.gif

- I can barely stay awake in school this week. I'm exhausted. sleep.gif
Chiyo
Razzy - combine the two and start a new craze, Lady GrasGras. Though be prepared for her to sue you.

Pierrot - at least you missed it for an honest reason, I used to on account of being lazy....which was unforgivable in my first year when I was all of a 5min walk away. Ah well, congrats on your results.

jack - yes we've now had a few days of sun, it's wonderful.

Scar - Ferrets are great pets, but I too have attempted to bathe one. Darn thing shredded my clothes.

CT

- My housemates are off to New York today. I'd say I'm jealous, but really I'm not, much as I'd like to visit the USA, New York holds no appeal. Means I'm catsitting though, and I find I'm talking to them like they're children, not felines.

- Such blue skies out there. Still bloody cold but sunshine always perks one up.
ScarMySoul
@ Chiyo Well its weird because in the wild ferrets swim... BUT when I lived on my own in New Hampshire, I had a ferret and he LOVED bath time... but I guess since this little one has never been exposed to it, must have been a bit of a shock...

CT:

- Arya is doing well tongue.gif We had her out on the couch and she is a complete spaz and in the future I'll be sure to make a video of her and let you guys see her... tongue.gif

- Okay so I'm completely obsessed with the craziness of Charlie Sheen. Best line ever: "They can't hang with me, their bones would melt like wax"

Little Washu
I'm stuck in journalism... but I wanna play my Pokemon game D:
I've had the game(s) for about a week now, and I already have 6 badges, and am about to get my 7th.
As far as Black and White versions go, I REALLY love these games. All the new Pokemon are growing on me ;w; I wanna play it nao, but I should be writing a short story. But Pokemon is betterrrrr

Anyway. On the topic of Lady Gaga, she had a concert here recently, literally like 45 minutes away from my house. I would have gone just to say I went, but I assumed the tickets would be a LOT of money, and I don't wanna pay a lot to see someone I hate.

CTs:
-Hoping to go to JoAnn's this weekend to pick up materials for my Ran Yakumo hat and Elesa/Kamitsure cosplays~
-I have a giant cream puff in my bag. It's bigger than my orange...

Dear Tim Hortons,

Today I have purchased my twelth double/double under the whole roll up the rim to win game. And this is the twelth time in a row that i've seen that 'please play again' under my rim. Your whole 1 in 6 wins advertisement is bologna. Some one owes me a donut damnit.

Love

-PD
Pyroclasm
@A Pierrot's Aria: I am enjoying it, thanks. ~ And it's good to hear that you passed your exams! Congratulations!

@Razzy: I'm finding out just how awesome it is!

CTs:

- I couldn't get into town to get Pokemon White on the day of its release, unfortunately... But I was able to get it this morning! =D It's great already!

- Yeeeees, just caught a Drilbur! /o/ Now, onwards to the next Gym!
Chiyo
My heart to the people of Japan and to all those who will soon be affected by the following tsunami. All I can think of watching the videos is how surreal it all looks, but how horribly real it is.
ScarMySoul
I agree with Chiyo.. I saw this news this morning and I was in complete shock. I have a friend who's father is in Tokyo on military contracting and she hasn't heard from him yet... Prayers and thoughts going to everyone who's being effected by the disaster in Japan as well as the people effected by the waves that are going out and away from there, like Hawaii.. Stay safe!!

FMAobsessed
CT's:

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan who are affected by the tsunami. I was surprised to hear about it on the morning news. ScarMySoul: I hope your friend's father is safe.

I know I haven't been around much, but I hope everyone is doing well.

While we were quiet for a while, I guess the relative noise level must have peaked right as a whole bunch of people were leaving, because that was when she finally came out and gave us our only warning.

"You know everyone is entitled to their views and opinion, you're being shallow BUT its your own. I know a lot of people were very upset with your comment, but I've got a feeling that's what you wanted. Attention. If this is your way of getting it, then more power to you.

PS: Haiti didn't have a tsunami, they had an earthquake. The tsunami was in Indonesia...."

My friend found this on deviantart. I was disgusted when I read it. I like anime and manga, but the loss of human life is way more important than whether or not an anime or manga series will be continuing. Does this person have no human compassion or sympathy? On top of that they said a tsunami hit Haiti. Only an earthquake hit Haiti, not a tsunami too.

Another one of my friends found a youtube video or comment on youtube, where a person said that the tsunami in Japan was God's revenge for Pearl Harbor. Another comment that made me disgusted. I am proud to be an American, but honestly some people should not be American, and/or have the right to vote.

I seriously hope these people are trolls. But even for a troll those comments are way too inappropriate

- I feel crazy right now. It's partly due to school-related stress, but mostly due to lack of sleep. (Both are totally my fault; I've been up so late every night playing Pokemon... XD) Makes me wonder if adding energy drinks to that combination is really a good idea.

- Tomorrow is "Rent A Senior" day at school. My friend rented me. She wants to make me wear a fedora and a fake mustache. And I'm gonna carry her books or something. And other shenanigans. XD

- I have to get motivated to do homework. Ugh.

re: Japan

Japan has been in my thoughts since I first heard about the 8.9 earthquake on my way to school. It's devastating, what's going on there. The earthquake, then a tsunami, and now several nuclear plants are causing lots of trouble. So many people dead, so many people lost, and countless people with their homes and everything they own just gone. It makes me terribly sad, not only that this happened, but also that it seems like there's nothing I can do about it. I'm just a sophomore in high school, with a few dollars to my name. Donating is pretty much out of the question, I already borrowed $10 from my parents to donate to the Red Cross to help them help Japan, but I myself have no money whatsoever.
I've found the Help_Japan fandom auctions, and I definitely plan on offering some arts, writings, or crafts there.
I was also thinking on opening up art commissions, where all the proceeds go to help Japan. If I did that and put a thread here, do you think you, or anyone else on the forum would be willing to buy them? I can assure you that all the money will be going to help Japan, it's just that I'm still on a very new account on deviantART, so I'd have to post my commissions other places as well in order to get noticed.

-I'm back home for the weekend. It's nice to see my dad again --it feels like I haven't seen him in ages. The first thing he did when he saw me was give me a great big hug. biggrin.gif

It was a bit of a pain when I got on the coach home, though. They put luggage in the compartments at the bottom of the coach. And one of the workers said she'd put my luggage in and told me to get on the coach. She asked the driver which compartment she should put it in, and he replied any. And she just went to the driver "oh, you do it." And left my suitcase on the ground outside of the coach. The driver apparently didn't hear, though, because he closed the door and was ready to set off. I had to run down to the front of the coach to ask him to actually get my suitcase and get it in the coach. dry.gif *Random babbling* laugh.gif

-Dad has been finishing decorating my (and my sister's) bedroom. We started it, but never got a chance to finish it. But dad did last week.

CT's:

Well this was a stressful week. For some reason hearing about Japan stressed me out. I am friends with some of the Japanese exchange students at my school. Luckily, none of their families or friends were directly affected by the earthquake and tsunami. They still feel sad about what happened though.

Last week I accomplished a 5 page paper, a 7 page paper, and a miterm. All for the same class.

This week I have 2 papers and 2 midterms. I also have a job interview. I wish I wasn't so delusional, and stopped believing that my semster is suppose to be easier after my spring break. Because it never is.

I wanted to take summer classes this summer, but I work when the classes are offered. So, that won't work. Instead if I want to graduate relatviely on time, it will be 6 classes for the next few semesters. I hope I can manage that.

My dad lives on the 8th floor of a flat and I ran down all 8 flights and after taking some photos (which are rubbishy phone cam quality!), I ran back up the stairs. It's times like this I wish I didn't have a phobia of lifts. =/ Not long just got back in the house!

- It's getting cold out again. I guess I was foolish to think that it would start to feel like spring in March.

- I'm so annoyed that I can't get a job. I can't tell you how sick I am of this place. I can't get a job without the right connections, and when there is a hope of getting a job, after all my persistence I'm told "We'll get back to you in a few days" countless times for countless weeks by the same guy until I've learned that it means "No, you're not getting the job". I'm starting to feel like going upstate in August is my only hope for money. Then again, 'the grass is greener on the other side', so maybe the difficulty of finding a job is the same there as it is here. If anything, I can get a job on campus.

- My family had to cut down my favorite tree. It's kinda sad; now there's almost nothing in the backyard.

- I'm still really excited to go to the MoMA this week! I've never gone there with my best friend, so when she comes this time, I have a feeling it's gonna be a lot more fun than previous trips. We're gonna get breakfast before the train leaves, and we're gonna play Mad Libs. laugh.gif

jacksparrow589
Razzy--Going off to a different college than your friends is very hard, I agree, but, as FMAobsessed says, you will find ways/time to keep in touch. Between Facebook, skype, email, and phones, I keep up to date with my friends, and when we're all in town, we make sure to plan time to actually see each other. It's not painless, but it goes a long way. You'll be just fine. smile.gif

@Razzy There's not much more that I can add to what FMAobsessed and jsp589 have already said...they're spot on. It seems difficult and upsetting at first, but there are plenty of ways to keep in contact! There'll be holidays in which you could probably see them again, too. When I was at college before uni, I met an amazing friend and from then on we were practically joined at the hip. We both went on to go to different universities but we still keep in touch and see each other whenever we can. happy.gif
