Oh snap [24 Feb 2008|09:06pm]
[ mood | calm ]

I think this is the first weekend in a long time I haven't had homework or something to go to that was school related. Heck yes. ♥

So I spent it relaxing and making icons. Sonic icons. Ha. I have skimmed through too many Archie issues this weekend looking for panels to make icons out of.

Went to the bookstore earlier today and got America (The Book) by John Stewart. I predict many laughs coming from this. Would've gotten Stephen Colbert's book, too, but Half-Price Books was made of fail and didn't carry it. D:

Tomorrow, Calculus gets back into full swing. This last week has been lax, but now that the six week tests are over, we'll have to do a lot more work, especially since AP exams are getting closer. Woe. ;_;

'Bout time I updated this thing. :p

I swear, I never could keep track of things like journals/diaries and the like. I always forget about them. If I vanish for a while and anyone needs to contact me, use my AIM screenname on my profile, I'm usually on it regardless of whether I'm busy or not.

All I've been doing is: sleeping, calculus, and preparing to own people in the face at UIL competitions. I also did some fandom writing yesterday during class because I was bored and already knew about what we were talking about in Biology. So, I'll probably post that up in a few minutes, since I'm actually proud of this thing, what with it being the only thing I've written that wasn't RP-related in who knows how long.

If I missed anything awesome and/or important, I'm sorry. D:

EDIT: And oh look, my AIM screenname is now actually on my profile. Thought it was, but it wasn't, wow.

Spent seven hours yesterday working on calculus with a friend. My brain is still in pain. Massive amounts of pain.

School starts tomorrow, too. LAME.

My friend has drawn me into Sonic, big time. Sonic Adventure 2 is now my favorite game, I have so many hours on that thing now, would have more if I didn't have to sneak in time between school-like things. She's got me thinking about applying for Rouge at some multi-fandom RP place. If I can get the courage up and finish my application for her (got all of it done except for sample RP post/thread) I might give it a try. It looks low maintenance and I think I'm getting the hang of this crazy thing called "time management," so it might be a worthwhile venture.

In Christmas news, we got to open an early Christmas present because my siblings are relentless in their pestering, and I scored opening the box that held the Zune. >:D I can finally fit all my music on an mp3 player!

I am shocked at how much of calculus I actually understand now. Taking that class makes me feel incredible intelligent. 8D I also aced my two college classes (94 in College Gov, 95 in College Eng), so I'm doing damn good grade-wise.

I better get going, there's going to be Christmas festivities shortly and I ♥ my grandparents, so making an appearance is necessary.

Quick happy thanksgiving! I am not dead yet, just working on the school-like things. I'll take a look at my flist tomorrow, when I'm less sleepy from all the delicious food.

Finished reading Soul Music yesterday. It was amazing, I want to reread it even though I just finished it, but I think I'll get on with the rest of the Death series I still haven't read. Seriously, though, that book is the most inspirational I have ever read. I loved every second of it and I now have this urge to create a rock band called The Whom or &U.

I wish I was related to Death. ;3;

I have refallen in love with Discworld. It all started with me deciding to finish reading Moving Pictures (which I should've read a long time ago), then I found out that the Hogfather had been made into a movie, so I downloaded that and watched it yesterday. Now I'm already halfway through Soul Music and I don't want to stop. D:

Why must you captivate me so, Discworld? I need to find a way to buy more of the books and get the Hogfather on DVD.

I ♥ Death.

[ mood | busy ]

Busier than anyone should be allowed to be. Calculus is killing me and I've just been doing odd things for my other classes these past few weeks. Waaaay too tired when I get home.

Just updating to inform everything that I am, indeed, alive, just very tired and busy. School has become the proverbial monkey on my back, and it likes to kick and scream at inopportune times.

Sorry if I missed anything important that's been going on. D:

[ mood | tired ]

Haven't really been on LJ since school started, oops. Been in for like three weeks now and I am so tired. Calculus is kicking my butt and is the only class I feel incredibly stupid in, but I think I'll get by as long as I find people in that class to get help from earlier in the day.

I'm actually doing extracurricular things this year, which feels really weird. This is the first year that from the start to the finish I'll be doing other things besides going to class and doing homework.

Went to the UNT campus for a UIL conference thing and I don't know, I can kind of see myself walking around that campus next year. If I end up going there and my friend can get a full ride there, we would probably end up rooming together which would be cool. I still want to go to NYU, so I'll probably only stay there a semester or two before attempting a transfer.

Kingdom of Loathing is the only thing that is keeping me sane this school year. If anyone else is on there, send me a message, my main character is Ricarda. ;D

First somewhat free moment since school started, yay. Class began on Monday and that's when I learned that I would actually have to study this year. I've gone from having to hardly study to needing to for a few hours every night. Not an easy adjustment so far, but maybe with time it won't be such a stress. Dropped the nursing class/Health Science Technologies in favor of a blow off class (Office Aide) since I wouldn't have time afterschool to go to a nursing home.

Predicting a bad grade in Calculus when my teacher stops giving us odd problems for homework. Chapter 1 is our responsibility to learn and I am failing immensely at it. When my teacher explains it, it makes sense, but when I try to understand it in the book, I don't get it at all. Officially hate functions and graphing.

Since I can't drive yet, I have to take the bus and I'm now the last stop, so I get home around 4:30. And for the first time in a while I'm finding it hard to find time to use the internet. Not cool.

All these college/AP classes better pay off soon. >:(

Enough rambling, I should be reading a textbook of some sort.

PS. Looks like I got a 3 on both my AP US History and English Language tests from last year, woot.

I love So You Think You Can Dance. The final four they have right now are amazing dancers and they did some pretty nifty things on last night's episode. I am now intrigued by the Lindy Hop. 8D

Blargh. My computer is still being annoyingly slow. Occasionally I get some error about hardware rendering and VPU recovery which asks me to restart my computer, but I have no idea what any of it means. As soon as my uncle moves, I'm gonna pester him about it, but that won't be until near the end of this month. Hopefully I won't have smashed my computer by then.

Last few days have been like this:
Saturday - Finally got a haircut and went clothes shopping. Major self esteem issues and bouts of "I'm faaaaaaaat" happened afterwards as I retryed on my new jeans and shirts, used up all my weekly angst allowance on it. Really need to work on my self-esteem, I thought it was higher than this.
Sunday - Spent the day at a friend's and played Scrabble, horribly. Learned it is not okay to make up words when your letters suck (if only sofaz and ratz were acceptable spellings).
Monday - Snagged the only avaliable spot in the college English class and finished up high school registration. Also had an extremely creepy dream when I took a nap today which freaked me out.

Schedule for next year:
College English (Tuesday, Thursday)/Government (Monday, Wednesday)
Bio 2 AP
Literary Genres
Tech Theatre 2
Debate 1
Calculus AP
Health Science Tech

Anyone on my flist good at Calculus? The homework packet is still kicking my butt. ;_;

So I spent the last couple days trying to figure out what was wrong with my computer. Went to some tech support forum for removing things like spyware to get help because I thought that was what was causing it to run slower than usual, turns out it's not. At least now my computer is spyware free and defragged. No idea what is causing it to run slow like this.

Anyway, sorry to tell you so late garefowl, but I don't think I can get that movie to you. Uncle's computer apparently didn't have a DVD burner even though he had told me it did and I thought I'd just snag the movie on my computer real quick since it wouldn't take long on mine, but I don't think I want to risk BT on it with it acting up. Might be easier if you try finding it for rent online or something. D:

I'm back in Texas, oh snap. I missed my Wii and computer and maybe my younger siblings, too. D: I came home to find out it was our youngest cat's birthday, my little sisters and one of their friends did a mini parade for Skitterbug (who is no officially three years old) and we decorated a cake for her. Apparently my mom can bake, she just only does it when I'm not around. >:( Anyway, they had pimped out her stroller and it was first thing I saw when I walked in. I couldn't believe they stuck so many flowers and glittery things on it.

Summer wasn't a total bust, even if I spent most of it in my room, bored. It was annoying that my sister didn't seem to want to do anything with me, even after she'd go "We should watch this movie together!" But whatever, I got to hang out with my friends and be awesome with them. And I'm getting a car, so I can't really complain about the way things are going.

Yesterday was spent hanging out with a friend, which was nice, since she had been feeling really down and we both missed hanging around each other. Hopefully playing PSO and beating the last boss helped cheer her up.

Final Con Like Things:
-Saw Joss Whedon at the California Browncoats booth. Major fangirling after he had left
-Got Parappa's autograph, hells yeah ;D
-Producer from Phoenix Wright was doing a signing, got an awesome Trials and Tribulations poster and her signature out of it
-Bought two shirts, some d20s and d6s, Tofu Robot tote bag, and a couple more small Firefly related things
-Saw random anime in the anime show rooms, might have to find out more about Best Student Council now
-Spent a lot of time at the Square booth watching people get up and sing in their Singstar Pop competition

Beyond that, I mainly just hung out with random friends I saw there and some guy I didn't even talk to a lot remembered me and was all, "I had been wondering where you went!" Very confused as I only had maybe one class with him each year during Freshman and Sophomore year, but it was nice being remembered like that.

The con went by so fast this year, I'm still surprised that it's over.
