I was going to try to be more consistent. I wasn't. Whatever.

I didn't really want to have my return post be ones like this one but, I guess what can you do?

Got bad news yesterday. Everything should be okay but... there is news that you never want to hear and this is that kind of news. Yesterday was one of those days that you may not remember the exact date of in a decade, but it is one you will remember for a very long time because pretty much, it is one of the worst days in your life. One of those days. I'm not ready to talk about it. We are not telling people yet. When I am ready, I will talk about it. Until then, I am pretty much begging for patience because... I don't know when I'll be ready. It could be later today, it could be next Monday, it could be a month.

Sorry in advance.

Tomorrow wasn't good, but today isn't that much better in terms of news. My Aunt's boyfriend, who is practically her husband in everything but actual title, had a stroke today and is in ICU still. It doesn't look good.

I am kind of sick of bad news.

Needless to say, today went much much better than yesterday.

To begin with, I made it through the entire day with my wallet intact and on my person. That is pretty good right there.

I had a lot of nothing today. I read all of Batman:RIP. It…. Really doesn’t make that much sense. I am kind of wondering if I am doing it wrong. Might need to find the back story for it because I am seriously confused about some parts. Though I know others, like Miss Jet.

I also finally managed to wander behind Pete without getting caught in 3whateverhalfdays.

I also got manhandled. I almost screamed when it happened because I am not used to being bodily moved by a guy who is twice my size, literally, especially when that extra me is 100% rugby muscle.

Other than that, I spent some time pining for the fact that I only have 15 userpics. I guess I need to steadily update before I can even talk myself into a paid account on lj. I mean really.

Uhm… I guess really all I want to do for the rest of the evening is read my comics I got yesterday and try not to read any spoilers. We’ll see how that works out.


Comic spending: $28 since 8/25

Okay so today is pretty much the worst day ever, and the best day ever, But mostly the worst.

I lost my wallet today on my way to thermo. Lost it. And this meant I spent all of thermo hyperventilating and about to cry. I got home and it wasn’t there and so everything got cancelled, credit cards and everything. I paid 44.70 for a new drivers license and just… yeah it was bad. But then I got a message on facebook from someone who had found my wallet :D

I got to campus and everything was still there except for 2 bucks and I was okay with that loss. But that was 44 bucks gone and never to return. Oh well.

Today is my parents anniversary. Yay, though apparently their anniversary is totally cursed. I probably didn’t help this year.

I also do not have class on Friday except for seminar. YAY.

Went to astrozombies today after picking up my beloved wallet.

Okay so now I have started GRADUATE SCHOOL in a class with more than one student (me).

ME520: Advanced Thermodynamics-

I think I am going to like this class. I know a lot of the people in it, and yes, the 22 guys to 2 girls ratio sucks but at the same time, I know the other girl, Carrie, so that makes me incredibly happy. And Joe and Ross are both in that class. The professor seems cool so really, I just have to survive.

I met up with Hunter and DK today for lunch, which was pretty awesome. I didn’t eat because I feel like crap but it was nice to see them and talk to them. I talked to hunter for like two hours and that made me smile.

I also hung around campus for an extra 40 minutes to say hi to Dusty. Not doing that again since pretty much it was a very boring 40 minutes for like 2 minutes of “hello and hello everyone else” so yeah.

Went to pub quiz. It was incredibly hard. Like incredibly. Still don’t feel so hot so I am glad that class doesn’t start until like 1 tomorrow. Still, blegh. Also music is isolating. I know that is a random comment, but seriously. It discourages interaction massively and it mostly annoying when you are in company. It’s pretty lame.

Anyway tomorrow is my other two classes… yay?

... Okay I confess. I bought like all of recent X-Factor. And some Blackest Night. I couldn't help myself.

nikavia: (Secret Six: Deadshot)
Goddamn Legion of Superheroes and your oddly subtly “Wait wtf?” Covers. I have now caught up with Legion of Superheroes (which luckily is only three issues long right now, with issue four out on Wednesday) all because of the nice ambiguous and…. Interesting cover to issue 6. Which is not coming out until October. I have I mentioned how difficult it is to wait months between comicbooks? Because it is REALLY DIFFICULT.

In any case, I have them all now. And I am going to relish in them and possibly count down the days to issue 6, or perhaps issue 5, depending on if they actually kind of project the events in 5… :D

I ran around with Dusty again today. Target and a failed attempt at centennial. I now have dinosaur pencils and shot glasses. I have no self control.

nikavia: (Camulus Smirks)
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.

nikavia: (Little Brother-**Head Tilt**)
So I finally sat down and read Final Crisis. I focused and I finished it and… well… it was alright. Not my favorite arc at all but I mean, once I sort of figured out what the heck was going on it was alright.

I also read A Cry for Justice, which is so pretty on the inside, I just kind of stare at it because it really is like a work of art. The story makes me upset, but at least it is freaking pretty whilst doing so is all I have to say on the subject.

I am trying to organize. So far it is failing…

Really failing. Too many comicbooks.

Linds is heading towards the dorms tomorrow. This should be exciting.

So I like the Authority.

I am not sure what exactly started it, but I really enjoy it, mostly because three of the characters are so incredibly unique that I find it fascinating.

The Midnighter- super enhanced. Harder to hit, hits harder and super smart. Has a computer hooked up to his head that lets him calculate a million different scenarios for a fight and then proceed to kick your ass.

Jenny (in general)- Spirit of whatever century. Jenny Sparks was the spirit of the 20th century and Jenny Quantum is the spirit of the 21st century. They live for 100 years and then they die, and the next one comes. But each one affects the century. The great depression? Jenny in depression. Etc.

Jack- Okay so this power is my favorite, simply because I think it is fantastic. Urban control. He is dubbed the King of the Cities. He can control freaking cities! He can use their mirrors and glass as his eyes, their tvs and radios as his ears. The ground will swallow his enemies whole. He can get buildings to move and CATCH PEOPLE. I mean seriously, coolest superpower ever.

Anyway, I am resisting right now. We will see how long that lasts…


out we go

So I am getting ready to surrender my computer to the rents so short post before I go off and play with Fernando.

I met Jason for lunch today. Ended up being a three hour affair. But he’s my Jason and I love him.

Unfortunately, this meant that I also got to think about comicbooks on my way home. Which meant that I totally lost control.

I now have all of brightest day except two JLA issues. I am so screwed.

No really, this will end badly and brokenly for me.

So time to surrender. Fernando talks tomorrow.


... ARGH

So… I have no self control.

I decided to stop by hastings. It ended in my tracking down pretty much all of Batgirl. Cept one, issue 11 because I am an idiot. And I bought a lot… of other… you know what. It was just bad. At some point I will count this all up but for now? Lets go with “Bad Bad Bad” and call it good. I am serious screwed because I can’t stop myself. There is no impulse control. I go in and go “yes… yes I can have that” and then I spend way too much and damnit damnit damnit. Maybe I should only take cash when I go places. That would be limiting.

But on the plus side, I did find Suicide Squad #67, which I have been searching for :D

I also went to the eye doctor today. So I have a new prescription which means new glasses. I am kind of hoping I can find ones similar to the ones I have now. We’ll see.

I am meeting Jason tomorrow for Lunch, as well as playing it up with Fernando tomorrow. Tomorrow will be social x11.

nikavia: (Guy Gardner: Warrior)
Wednesday again!

So I went with the kiddies to buy text books. Linds ended up with $700+ in textbooks.

I paid for my text books. Luckily I only had to get two, for about $230… ah engineering how I will not miss this particular part about you.

I got a text mid astrozombies. Fernando is having a party this weekend for the leaving. I am prepared to cry. A lot… It could get ugly.

And since it is Wednesday: The haul!

Action Comics #890

Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #1

Justice League: Generation Lost #7

Superman #702

Birds of Prey TB: Dead of Winter

I am pretty excited. I also have fallen in sort of love with The Authority. I think I should probably discuss that though when I have a boring day of boringness. Because my life is actually kind of boring.

nikavia: (Default)
So I trailed after Dusty today. We went to Cent, Target and Lobo Anime.

Cent was so she could check out books, so I got to show her the basement and such, which was pretty awesome because YAY basements.

We went by target so she could join me in this whole running thing. YAY FOR A BUDDY!

I bought Salvation Run. I couldn’t help myself. Deadshot, collected and they had ALL of it when it has never been released in TB? I am surprised I lasted as long as I did, srsly.

Pub Quiz tonight. Team: Hunter, Dk, Ian, Jamie and myself, the Wheezing Pigs. We were in first place for a whole few rounds. We were kinda totally stoked :):D

Now I have to read like 4 articles before my meeting tomorrow with professor…


Oh Sinestro

Aug. 7th, 2010 10:57 pm

So today was a big NOTHING DAY.

So I shall regale myself with tumblr and background things.

I have started to like tumblr and I am considering getting one, but I am not sure if I could maintain it with the ferocious dedication that some people do. Which is why I have reservations about it. But at the same time, I think it would be fun. We’ll see. I have to maintain this sort of well for a while first I think.

Onto the background, I have decided I need a new one. So therefore I have decided to use Sinestro’s speech during GL:Sinestro Corps:

“I have been to every corner of the every sector of the universe and I have learned one thing.

The Universe needs change.

We live in a place rotting with hedonism and chaos. A place untamed and morally devoid. A place of darkness.

When I was inducted into the Green Lantern Corps, I believed I had finally escaped the darkness. I worked hard to validate the power ring’s selection.

I tore my home planet Korugar free from sin.

I brought order and vowed to do the same for the rest of sector 1417… And then, with the Corps’ support, the rest of the universe.

For a time the Guardians even called me the “Greatest” of the Green Lanterns.

Until an Earthman I trained took everything from me.

Hal Jordan called mea fascist for the order I bestowed upon Korugar.

I was stripped of my ring.

Labeled the first renegade of the Green Lantern Corps, I was banished into the underbelly of the universe, the antimatter universe…

…And delivered back into darkness.

For the first time in my life—

--I felt Fear.

And I was blinded by its brilliance.

I believed fear to part of the chaos I abhor, but it was more controlling that all the willpower in the universe.

And it would be Mine.

You will be mine alley rat.

And the Universe…

The Universe will change.”

Today i spent the morning cleaning scrap metal. that was a bit unpleasent.
But I had a good time playing with people. I was naturally the only one who got injured and bled. but oh well.
I went to borders today. I now have a fetish for Pop Philosophy. I bought a book about the philosophy of watchmen.
I am going back to Borders next week to get the new Dresden files. I am way excited.
I watched Twilight today. Some parts of it were good. But some parts of it were so monumentally terrible i wanted to cry.
I also watched SGA 5.19- Vegas, which made me want to cry for a whole different reason. I love alternate reality episodes.
Anyway, i have some stuff to do before i call it a night so... laters

Uh other than that i re-read parts of watchmen again (it's eating my braaain) and i have found a book that i want about watchmen and i need to have it.. badly but currently i am broke and so i don't think that is happening for a bit. But i need it.

AC: Complete (Blu-Ray)
Stargate Atlantis (seasons 3+)

Now i am back at school. Where did my spring break go! I am in denial.
I was supposed to do hwk with Fernando this evening but i got distracted talking to Erica across the hall. So that didn't happen.
I spent my last day watching Stargate and just relaxing. Packing was a bit of a bitch but what can you do?
I read up on my trashy tv. I am kinda like "meh" but...
This week looks pretty mellow. I kinda just want to die in my dorm room and think mellow thoughts but i have an exam on Wednesday, a horrible proE thing due tues and hwk for materials due tues, wed and thurs... urgh.
Anyway i am kinda just waiting. I am also reading Watchmen again. i think i am addicted.
Kinda wishit was still spring break. Kinda wish i was still watching SGA.
But i do have all of 5.19 Vegas capped so i kinda want to browse through that and maybe make icons or something... cept i don't think there is any LORNE so i am kinda sad

Forgot in my SGA obsessing that i bought Watchmen the graphic novel yesterday. Damn is it pretty. Actually it kinda isn't. I am not the hugest fan of the art as i have been spoiled by comics that are not as old as i am.
But the movie was a very very very faithful adaption. i was kind of surpised how faithful. It was like dead on for most scenes and similar for most others. Still love Rorschach. He's my favorite. I think i need  icons of him but i am lazy and enjoying the last remnants of spring break to give in and just play with stuff to make pretty pictures. My attention span isn't that great.
On the subject of Icons and my other current love, Lorne is currently winning the potential struggle of who gets to be my Stargate icon because i like it enought to have a need for icons.
Either him or John. Because the man is pretty,... both of them are....>.>
Posted many things onto Spectrum today. very exciting!
Also found the opening to Watchmen. Watched it many times.

I saw Watchmen today. HOLY GOD IT WAS AMAZING! like seriously i loved it to peices and now i need icons because DAMN that was amazing! Like above and beyond expectations amazing. I WAS VERY VERY IMPRESSED! I need the comic now. i Love Rorschach. He was the only character i liked seriously, even though he is the ultraconservative nutjob. But he was awesome.
Though ew sex scenes like seriously.
Uh I got my 314 exam today. I got a 63/67 on it. Considering the average was a 66 and the distribution was between a mid 30 and a mid 80, i don't feel that bad about that score. I took my music exam. I did awesome. I think.
Uh bought video games. Had to adventure but managed to get both Resident Evil 5 and Force Unleashed. Also managed to find Stargate Atlantis Season 2 Used.
I am so excited. RE5 is awesome, Force Unleashed is awesome and STARGATE!

So it begins again. But tonight there were many exciting things.
Dusty got into a car accident and i have had my freakout. i paced. I don't like pacing. And i imagine the people beneath me do not like me pacing either but it is how i deal with Car Accidents. It was a two car wreck. Person ran the red light. Collision. And i can't really think about it to hard without wanting to cry and flashing back to my oh so favorite lecture about whiplash. So i am moving on...
Fernando called to tell me his fluds score. A 59%... I am freaked out now. Because i made stupid freakin' errors like he did and if i did bad on this exam on top of my thermo exam the urge to drop out and become a business major will rise from .5% to 3%. Which is a bad rise all things considered. Truman assigned Thermo Homwork. Three WP and Three PS. The PS is actually last weeks WP but the ones that are all squeaky and needed percision readings.
Watched Ironman tonight. I love it! I love Tony Stark. Need Graphics! NEED NOW! Don't know what i will do with them but... i will have them and that counts for something. I love Tony Stark and my awkward crush on Robert Downey Jr. is...still awkward but it has come back full force. Seriously the guy has enough charm to make crabby old people happy. And hsi delivery of Tony Starkism behaviour was dead on. And Tony Stark is my favorite movie rick play boy genius crime fighter. He is upfront, outs himself, builds his own stuff and can still charm women's clothes off. Bruce Wayne al la comic fame is better than the new updated shiny version, mostly because the comic book wasn't so god damn emo. And the comic book was into criminology and building his own crap rather than using Wayne Enterprises R&D. Comic book Batman = way more yay than movie Batman.
This week sucks. Got assigned alot of Thermo hwk due Wednesday so need to get on that. Finishing my Linear Homework tomorrow with the guys tomorrow. And i am like 99% sure i have lab this week, which sucks major. I need to head to bed, eventually. I also need to back up my computer when i go home on Wednesday... Whoops. >.> Especially since i downloaded like 30 episodes over the weekend......

Groan.. truman hates us. there is not other explanation. Because we have two wiley plus assignments (though i guess only one for each class) and a PS due on friday. So there is some deep sighing. I Have done my mechanics, but under duress. and it makes me sad. BAH! I need video games. Tomorrow, after everything. Video games and some memory clearing on my computer. And maybe some room cleaning. Tomorrow during my break from 11-12 i need to do some fluids homework stuffs. We shall see how well that works out. I doubt it will work out well but i will make an effort.... We shall see.
DC versus Marvel is going down hardcore. Its kinda scary. Especially with Terry calling me from Batman Beyond and my general alliance with Marvel comics. Bad sign all around. but i love comics. batman is my flavor of the moment with Superman and of course X-men. i am excited for Watchmen. It's like 9 more months until it comes out but i am pretty psyched for it.
Tonight, Tidah and I played around with doing a Joint for Nanowrimo. not to spoil anything, but it looks pretty pyschedelic. We probably need to read Twilight before we tear it apart in a parody of all parodys. But it will be fuuuun. Lol go Edward the sparkly vampire **cough**virginzombie**cough**.
As one quick sidenote before i attempt to do something not totally distracted. I doubt it. I finished blood kin. Sad story. twist ending. Incest. Political assassination. Very interesting as a whole.
