Lindsay came back for like 3 hours today before she was returned to campus.

She seems to be having a fun time.

I on the other hand have a disaster of a room to contend with. A DISASTER. I mean I have comic books all over the floor and it is just a mess. I have vague ideas of getting my shit together before school starts, but I seriously doubt it.

I also have decided I need to work on backgrounds. I still haven’t finished the sinestro one, but I have a vaguely cool idea for a blackest night one, like how I do all my other ones. I am considering it, mostly because it could be freaking sweet. We’ll have to see how long my focus lasts.

I am once again back into school. I know this because my homework is making me so frustrated, I want to throw it across the room.

We met with our professor for design. The ideas he liked were: automatic belay device, moped bike, steady cam. Other than that, don’t really care anymore. Moving on.

Design for manufacturability homework was turned in today. I spent all of class outlining my apparently 26 chapter fanfiction of possibly +100000 words. Fernando leans over mid class and whispers “whatcha doing?” After a moment of flailing, I write:

story idea

But left the whole writing fanfiction part out of it. As it is a Merlin Fanfiction, the fact that Fernando immediately replies with

you should have robot dragons that transform

Really really funny. After a moment of smothered laughter, I reply with:

there are dragons

Which gets me a revised statement of

you should have robot dragons that transform

I just smiled indulgently at him and wrote

I’ll try.

Controls is not going well. Fernando and I managed the first two and the last one very well, but failed at the third in a pretty epic manner. We did the dynamics homework and called it a night (I also cleaned up my dorm room and used my ihome while I did it. And I listened to some fanmixes. Bound still has the most awesome cover).

Dusty apparently has had a very exciting night that leaves me nervous and a bit upset (I am not sure how much of that is exacerbated by the Controls Fail). Hug Time Tomorrow I think.

Fernando tells me I should coat my room in paper and do art all over it. I am half way tempted. Also I need to remember to bring my Alice poster next week.

So… today was pretty much me doing nothing!

I mean I could have done so much but I tidied my room (aka looked for my shirt and failed to do so). I also found many books, that I then scattered all over the place. My floor is also covered in yesterdays shopping experience, and random bits of fluff… I am not sure what I am supposed to be doing in there but so long as my mother ignores it today, I am going to declare it a victory.

Watched Knowing. Kinda had some predictive plot points, but other things weren’t, for example, the ENDING of all things. But the previews gave away the plane crash, which I think would have been way more awesome if I didn’t know it was coming. But I liked it, and Dad and I talked about Sci Fi books afterward, including one by… someone about the Moon suddenly lighting up at night, and a scientist realizing this meant that the sun had flared or something and they had until morning to live.

Mother and I also watched 2x03 of Merlin. I tried to convince her to watch more, but helpful father made that impossible by sleeping through half of it (even though he hasn’t even seen 1x08). I will just have to drag mother through more and more of Merlin as the weeks go by.

So I cleaned today. Not the best way to spend my last full day.

But my manga are all on shelves, and there are fewer piles of things around my room. I give it until two weeks in and I freak out, probably after I freak out on my dorm room. I know me.

I have also packed. I wonder what I will be forgetting tomorrow…

I have too many tabs open on firefox but I don’t know how to like cut back on it. It’s kinda upsetting. I keep closing tabs and then I open another one and I keep things open to show Dusty later and I don’t know.

Cait has left for England again. I tried to cheer Dusty up. Hopefully I didn’t fail. Also, according to Cosmo, my soulmate is a Cancer. Which made me laugh.

Other than that, escaped to the library today, which was dumb as i still have many many books checked out :P
uh... man i did nothing today. Dad spent most of it asleep. Mom cleaned. I relaxed and tried not to think about the fact that my break was almost over. **sighs** i should probably do something with my day other than just write huh? well there is an hour left. I think i am going to clean. lates

So... one of the books purchased in my book buying spree (and other buying spree) is the first book in the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K Hamilton. This is important because she writes Anita Blake (which I should really read... lol). From what i have heard, this book series is just... sex.... and maybe some violence but alot of sex. Anita Blake held off till book 6 or something so... I am not sure how i feel about this. But i want to try it and i don't want to get into a death struggle over the book with whomever else wants it at the library. So i bought it.
Thus far... i feel like i have read this before... like... really read this before. I am not allowed to read much (still too many library books and other books that i need to read first) but the character is very similar to Ms Blake....... very similar. Firey.. short... annoying... lol jkjk don't know about that part yet. She probably is annoying. Mostly because she is a princess... as opposed to Ms Blake who is... not a princess but acts like a spoiled little princess. But anyway, i have been cleaning. Alot. Like So much it actually scares me.
My room will someday be clean... and i will return the numerous books to the library... i swear.

Two Books!

May. 22nd, 2008 11:58 pm
nikavia: (Default)
So I finished two books today, which was pretty impressive all things considered. I finished Blood Relations and Alfred Kropp: The Seal of Solomon. Alfred Kropp was hilarious at random points, still creepy at others but the hilarity made it well worth it. Amnesia with secret agents while trying to explain about stupid nicknames? Hilarious!
Other than that i spent alot of today debating about rearranging all 800000 of my book shaped things... because there are many things. And it scares me. i have also started screwing around with my ipod shuffle. It's very cute but requires effort.
Vacation has been moved up a week, which is awesome but at the same time makes me go..... okay.... Meh YAY vacation!
I didn't do much today so i don't really have a story to tell. I didn't even turn on my computer until a few hours ago. Which is strange for me really but whatever.
Right now i am watching Buffy and Angel flashback episodes, because those were always the best ones. Tomorrow Linds is throwing a "yay we are done with school party". I will spend most of it in my room redoing my shelves and reading i think.

My room is a total disaster. Well not really.... more like it is unorganized and consists of many many piles that are... all over my damn room.
Anyway that is my goal for the summer... redo my room. Maybe some other things in there but making my room livable is a good one... not that it isn't but i stare at my ceiling (and my starwars posters) and have the overwhelming urge to re-shelve my books.... and my manga... which is sooo not a good plan at all...
Saw Prince Caspian today. Yay! it was pretty good. As I have not read the books, i cannot say whether or not it was true to the spirit of the books... i will instead go yay lion and move on with life... Spefex are what i lives for.
Since last we spoke... I have bought about 3000000 manga (slight exaggeration but only just) and have started collecting collectible cards... we all know this will end badly. I have told myself no buying anything cept presents and real books (and figurines because they may be gone!) and that is is because we are GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!! So i need to now spend money so i can buy useless things i will never use again!
I also completed script frenzy!!! which is way yay because i didn't think i was going to be able to do it. I finished like 15 minutes to midnight on April 30th. I do still have to read like 7 books in less than a week. I hope to finish one tonight before bed since i am halfway done with it andwe all know how I am with books. Spy High Blood Relations by AJ Butcher.... then it is just A Companion to Wolves by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear, The Wizard Heir and The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima, Alfred Kropp The Seal of Solomon by Rick Yancey, Epic by Conor Kostick, and another go at The Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan. Then we get to read another four and about 10 Anita Blakes and Small Favor which i am not allowed to read until the 7 due books are read, which makes me terribly sad.
Anyway, off to clean like a mad person. So much to do.

I got Getbackers today! Still uncertain as to if it is Get SPACE Backers or Getbackers but meh, whatever. i think the manga and the anime call them different things. I also came to the horrifying realization that many anime series are very long, and one of the other ones i am working through is like 300 episodes long. So that is going to be unpleasant.
I went through my tags earlier. It was scary but there are only like 100 now instead of the huge number from before. Now they look much nicer if i do say so myself.
So i want to get back to Getbackers and some other things, like cleaning my room (it is a total disaster). One of these days i'll talk about what happened in my +month off but not right now. So resuming crap at the bottom minus some things since i turned them in. No writing this month either. Still burned out from Nanowrimo.

Scorpia...

 I am having problems reading Scorpia…I think it is because I fear for Alex… who is being kinda dumb and is being forced to do so much for a 14 year old. I was no where near that mature at his age. Other than that today was a lazy day. I didn’t have to do anything today, so I just sat around, read and played video games. I also cleaned a bit but not really…

Cleaning...

Spent like ¾ of the day cleaning. Tonight is the last night in my room. I have cleaned so much. I have redone my posters and sorted some documents and forced myself to actually get rid of some things. Now I am twitchy and odd and feel the sudden urge to organize my socks…. Which is silly because I really don’t need to organize my socks, as most of them are white or something. So really, I am just loosing my mind. I have made no progress on anything else today… at all. This one is going to be short… I really did nothing today except clean.

I did nothing today. Well i learned some math and i did some drawing and i read like 5 pages of Anita Blake but that is it. I've gotten to the awkward part of The Killing Dance. I read Anita Blake for the gore and violence and other charactors. This is Antia Blake, Richard when he's... being a pansy and Jean Claude as a love sick fool... So not my idea of a good time. So I sigh heavily and remind myself that soon there shall be some quality violence and some Edward, who is all I live for as we are personality clones according to Quizilla. maybe tomorrow i shall be useful... and clean my room, which is looking horrendous. I watched Ghost Rider today. I expected better. Also watched the preview for Blood and Chocolate. I have read teh book upon which it is based. From the preview... I see nothing in common with it whatsoever. but they did a more acurate portrayal of werewolves and lycanthropy than even Anita Blake so I feel compelled. i will just pretend it is a different movie... ... Thats all.... cept

So i'm playing FFXII. I'm doing all that extra stuff. I've already beaten the game and i am about ... 15 levels above the final boss. So now i'm just goofing off, leveling up, trying to complete as many sidequests as i can, things like that. I'm doing the second to last hunt in the game "The Seer" and it is sooo irritating. You have to collect these shiny black orbs but they only appear like every 3 monsters. And you need over 150 of them. So that means you end up killing about 450 monsters, if you are perfect and don't miss a single one, dodge all the monsters outside the areas and the game actually drops the orbs that frequently. It usually doesn't. So i run around and arround. The good news is that i am down to the last 30 or so orbs. And then i get to fight this monster and it's flunkies, walk away and never ever look back. We are very happy. Then all i have left is like the fishing minigame (yes fishing... ) although i might skip that one. and Yaizmat... who is going to be hellllllll. But whatevers. We shall see how well that progresses. I read Anita Blake today. I did not finish a book but i think i might be able to tomorrow because well... i need a goal. I also cleaned a whole hell of alot today. Sarah and i also sorta talked about rearanging my room. I'm not sure as i have a non-Square/rectangular room but we shall see how this works out as well. Lindz wants me to get started on Okami. I want to but i kinda want to get FFXII out of my system first. I'm very... obsessive so... It's best to get rid of one before starting another.

I really don't like cleaning... I mean i do but some parts of it i hate... Like the going through things part of it... It's like... "Sure i haven't played with this in like 4 years but it has sentimental value" and so I keep it for another 4-5 years....
So i sigh and go through my toys and my papers and just things that i have lying all over everywhere... Good news is that i can see my floor and i can breathe... Mehs

So i try to update everyday... we'll see how this works... I plan on this happening for only a week of this working.
Yesterday i found ReBoot on YouTube. and everything went down hill from there... as it always does. I forgot how much i loved it all those years ago. I also forgot all the Computer lingo in it... maybe thats why i liked it so much. It called to my inner geek. So now i am watching them all... i'm on the second episode of season 2. Also there were so many inside jokes and at one point... "sailor moon" is wandering around...
In livejournal news, I gave in and got a plus account. I wanted more Userpics and i eventually wanna make a mood theme. we'll see however. I also snagged a gif off of Noire Sensus that i wanna use... but not today.
I am cleaning my room. It is scary but i think it will be pretty when it is done. I hope so at least.
Tomorrow maybe i will tell you all about my shiny sexy new MP3 Player... If i can tear myself away from ReBoot.
To hold you over, i present you with this little gem, The ReBoot Musical
