So...

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.

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.

Lindsay has moved into the dorms. She seems to be taking to it much better than myself. I am sort of jealous, but at the same time, I know it is in her character. I wonder when she’ll be back. I suppose eventually she’ll run out of clothes.

I have had yet more pizza. I think I am going to be very sick of pizza by the time I “grow up”. I mean really now.

I also am realizing slowly that my Fernando is missing. Really really missing. And that in his missingness, I will be down 2/3 of my best friends. And that is kind of difficult to think about for prolonged periods of time.
I have promised myself not to whine about it, or sulk too much. That’s rather childish and really, I have dealt with Sarah being gone for far longer without feeling the urge to bring it up on every possible occasion, except to remind that yes, I do know how it feels to be separated from my best friend.

In other news, Dusty is obsessed with Smallville Green Arrow. Who stubbornly refuses to wear a mask. So I kind of hate him… but he suffers from “He’s Ollie” syndrome and that doesn’t help his cause. If he was wearing a mask and a bit better at protecting his identity I would like him much more.

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.

Aunt Laura left today. But I had an AWESOME BREAKFAST!

I was kind of depressed. I don’t get to see my out of state family very often so it was pretty exciting to see her, especially for a week.

I ended up going to Target with Mom for the tax free weekend. I got some workout clothes. As the only one who uses the treadmill, I feel it is my right to get to use it using some actual gear instead of whatever I find that is semi comfortable to run it.

I took the gear out for a test run. COMFY. I ran .75 miles today at a fairly decent pace. Tired now but whatevers.

Linds has invited over here demon hoard for the evening. I imagine I will have to take care of them at some point, but right now they are out. We’ll see.

So I went to go see FAME tonight at the ABQ Little Theater.

I really enjoyed it. Decent singing (and I hate watching people sing, or listening to them sing, or singing in general), fairly good acting and all that.

The only problem I had with it was the same problem I had with the movie. It was kind of Crushing at some points. This was FAR more uplifting that the movie though… So I am going to beam and go “YAY” because seriously, only like one person died in this one.

It was fun though, and there were A LOT of kids (read: highschoolers are now kids of no) there. I felt almost old, as compared to the last play I went to where there were many many much older people. Linds was the second youngest person there. To be fair that was “The Littlest Whore House in Texas” but at the same time… young young young.

But I had a good time. And I remembered to bring a Jacket!

Santa Fe!

So I got to go to Santa Fe today. I got to ride the Rail Runner too. I am not a huge fan of trains (been on one, been on them all, time to pull out a book) but it was exciting for a while. After that it was way more interesting to people watch.

People are odd on trains.

But we got to Santa Fe and rode a very crowded bus thing to the plaza. We ate at this place called the Burrito Café or something, but it was delicious. I had like a huge green chile cheese burger. Oh my god was it good and the onions were like perfect and wow. Just… wow. It was amazing.

We went to the Palace of the Governors, which was pretty neat. Lots of nice exhibits and interactive ones too. We went on the tour and then I ran wild very quickly. We also went through an exhibit called Wild at Heart, which was traumatizing but about wolves and a nice crazy man who decided he no longer wanted to watch them slowly die in traps. Go figure.

We went up to the church, which I have actually never been in. I am fond of churches. They are one of the few places that I feel… forced isn’t the right word but I feel… something with God. Other times it’s a moment that is rather unexpected. I especially like churches when there isn’t anyone there. The church had people in it, but as the church could probably hold 1000+, 50 people was pretty much empty.

We then made it back to the train, which was late, which is impressive as Santa Fe? Last stop on the line. Eventually we got on and got everyone all situated and spent the trip home looking at the free booklets I picked up. I am going to use the pictures to decorate my office I think.

We finally made it home amongst rain and all such lovely things, but we made it home :D

So my Aunt came into town last night.

We spent many many many hours chatting. Talked about pretty much everything.

I learned a lot about my grandmother. She and my grandfather had a… ridiculously romantic movie like plot of a romance.

My grandfather was shipped back to the US when he told his superior officer he wanted to marry a Japanese woman. He broke off their relationship once, because it was too difficult, but regretted it and rekindled it. He saved up a year of pay to return to Japan, where he married my grandmother, then had to return to the US, save enough money to bring her over on a boat, and had friends meet her from LA to Pennsylvania.

We have a year’s worth of letters between the two of them somewhere. I will try to find them at some point.

Still haven’t thought of what to put at the end of posts… hms.

Today is my mother’s birthday. Lindsay has the plague, so we didn’t go all out, and she didn’t get to go eat cake at Grandma and Grandpa’s.

We went to Rex’s and it was pretty yummy. I ate way more than I should have, and I feel kinda tired.
My dad made an Avatar Cake. It made me smile. It’s so topping Titanic, as an aside because James Cameron wouldn’t make it unless he could own himself. And create another unbreakable record, until he comes out with Battle Angel.

Angel is also now 14 years old.

We decided to celebrate by watching Supernatural. It was Jump the Shark, which I have been WAITING FOR for forever and a half so I was way way way excited.

Last weekend before school starts. Lame. I just realized that I forgot to mention I got my books earlier this week. I have them now. Not that bad this year as two of my classes do not require textbooks. Though they are both 400 levels.

I think watching Big Bang Theory in my pajama’s until the treadmill arrives is how breaks should be spent. I like Big Bang Theory, but at the same time, it’s kind of… reflective I guess, and it makes me a tiny bit defensive, because as an engineering major, I think I am fairly competent at human interactions. I am not on their level, but still, I haven’t met anyone THAT socially awkward. It kind of makes me grit my teeth sometimes.

Mom does not like the size of the treadmill, which I must confess is kind of HUGE, but hey, it’s pretty neat. I played with it today and realized that my average pace is way faster than 1mph and so I kept stumbling when just walking on it. It will take some fiddling to try to figure out what paces I like. So far it looks like it will be used though, which will make my mother happy.

Watched Assassination of a High School President. Was not blown away. Kind of depressed by that. 

GRE Countdown and I am still not nervous. Something tells me this is a bad sign.

Cousins

Jan. 3rd, 2010 11:03 pm
nikavia: (HRH Prince Arthur)
So I have a cousin, who isn't technically a cousin, as we are not blood related in the slightest. But we are very close, even if she is off at some far away school in Mass. It's a strange thing because I never count her amongst my cousins, when I say I have four female cousins and one male cousin, or that I have five cousins, but every time I mention her in conversation, she get's "cousin" attached to her name. Then I always correct myself saying "but not really my cousin in a blood sense" and continue on with whatever we were talking about prior.

According to others, this is not that uncommon, but it is strange to be caught up when people remind me that she is not technically my cousin. Apparently she has had similar experiences in far off and distant lands of college and things. Anyway, she came over today, for the afternoon and watched Season 2 of Merlin with me, fangirled and commentated. Holly behaved and it was all good times.

Tomorrow I plan on working on my GRE prep some more. I also want to work more on my organizing and maybe get some writing done, as all i have done today is add more bookmarks than I have sorted (5/190) and so maybe, that will be a nice running counter at the bottom of livejournal entries as well. We shall see.

I am considering creating a journal/community for creative works of a not related to downfall and spectrum manner. We'll have to see if I like anything enough to do so. I want to go back to my 2008 Nanowrimo and work on it some more, maybe complete it. Or some other project. I am so scattered, focusing actually hurts sometimes when it comes to creativity. I currently have two different word documents open, trying to type without getting distracted by the internet. So far, I am failing, and I expect I shall continue to do so until the internet lacks previous luster.

Uh only have to live through me314 and i get to go home and kill zombies or something!
Today was very boring. I behaved during 370 but only because Truman was there and my spine was instantly straighter for it.
I still haven't done vibes homework which means i am going to die when i finally have to do it. Fernando and i shall be up at silly times and not be pleased about it.
Uh, i managed to finish 360 today which was nice but i am tired and kinda like mer.
I want to go home and shoot zombies. All i see is RE5 commercials. I think Fernando is coming over this weekend to play which is way awesome and stuff, but i think i need to get a good run through first.
Linds fed me today which made me very very happy. I got food, and it was yummy. We planned on going to Saggios but then we discovered that like, the whole of UNM was there so we went up to Dions. And we talked about Kingdom Hearts and Fushigi Yugi. It was awesome.

Happy birthday Mom and Angel!
Mom sadly spent a large part of it driving dad around and Angel sulked because the alpha was to incapacitated to take her on a good walk. So she is sad and i don't blame her. but we bonded and dad and I watched some battlestar, because it premiers tomorrow and he wants to see it. I just watched it since i have seen like 20 episodes in all. One of these days i am going to watch it all but not today.
Forgot to mention we went to Outback yesterday... >.>

Bought  clothes today. I got like 4 pairs of jeans and i got a neat fashion vest. Which makes me pleased. It kinda matches my school girl skirt... coincidence? maybe but i am like yay i have something pretty. it kinda has a KH design on it.
IN similar news, Lindsay and I need to write some more cuz seriously. We also may need our own comm because Spectrum is a whole different cloth than Downfall. and we may need a broader audience... Linds says it is more cracktastic than Super Sized. as time continues i am inclined to agree. We shall see : P
uh... in other news tomorrow is mommy's birthday and daddy's lasic thing... which is scary so i get to stay home with the birthday dog and watch movies or something...**pats angel**

My sister sprained her ankle! She GIMPY! She has crutches and a cast and freakin AYE ZIA BROKE MY SISTER!
So i spent alot of time home alone this evening. With the rushing around and the emergency room. So i looked up Dissidia and made social commentary:
Squall is one of the younguns. Only the Onion Knight and Zidane are younger, with Tidus being the same age.
Squall is also one of the shorter ones. Since they keep changing Cloud's height, he and Squall are currently the same height. For the released heights, Terra, Zidane and the Onion Knight are the only ones officially shorter than him.
Lots of royalty, lots of mercs and lots of Anti social nutjobs... And a couple radioactive balls of sunshine.
.... MY SISTER IS SPRAINED!!!

So today is Dad's birthday. Which means i am home for the evening so i could celebrate and have meals with them and things, which is very cool because that means i get a good shower instead of a crappy one, yummy food and a good nights sleep. We had Rudy's this evening, which was very delicious. Brisket= yum. We also just watched a movie and talked and went on a walk with the dogs. Linds and i got Dad a Master and Commander guide thingy. Since those books are on my to-read list i think it will probably be useful.
today was interesting. i managed to talk to Truman twice after both thermo and Fluids. After Themo i noticed an eqn on the board resembled Bernoulli and went up to ask him about it and he said that it was Bernoulli and proceeded to show me how it became Bernoulli given certain situations. It was pretty neat! And then i talked in Fluids because after Dad's help on the PS yesterday, i got the right answers on the PS and was able to correct the rest of the class. And Truman knows my name. Got my quiz back. 23/25 because i missed 2 assumptions. Then i went and talked to him after class about how we apply correction coeff. And talked to him again. So Truman for sure knows i have at least three functioning brain cells. They just don't work in Thermodynamics.
Lab today sucked, alot. We have a huge ass freaking lab report due 10/15 and i am not pleased. Plus we have more homework due on Friday for both Thermo and Fluids. Back to lab, we watched a movie in color (finally!) though this one was way more borderline sexual than any other we have watched, which made it way awkward. but yay for color!
... So that was my day... damn i wish sometimes i had time to talk about things other than school

So i was right. Way to much freakin homework. Called dad in a panic. It was bad. I hate school. I hate life. Okay i lie but somedays are just suck tastic. I like sleeping. To bad i am not going to do much of it tonight.
Truman assigned way too much. Managed to finish Thermodynamics but Fluids is kicking my ass. Too much freaking homework and my room is a mess and good god it bugs the crap out of me. i may start twitching any moment now. It might be bad i warn ye.
Good news about today is that we got or Linear Algebra Exams back and i got a 95% on it. Which is way yay because that gives me a very good place to start and gives me a tiny bit of slack in for the next exam and the final exam.
In Mechanics we started on Shear and Bending Moment Diagrams, which we did in statics so i was like "OMG i know how to do this!" so now all i have to do is do remember how and get my homework done.
I have Fluids Lab tomorrow and all i really want to do is sit down and finish my book. I doubt it will be finished till weeks end though, which kinda sucks. I need to get more homework done tonight because my Dad's birthday is tomorrow and i have to get as much done as possible so i can celebrate his birthday with much rejoicing.
Which means i need to do my mechanics for a while until probably 1am ish... **sigh** i hate my days cuz i know that means i won't go to bed until like 1:30am and then i have to get up at 8:30 am and start all over agian....>.> Growl.

Watched Munic tonight. Not a gold star movie. i didn't like it. I mean it was okay, but it wasn't... i didn't like it. it was too bloody and gross and just... it started unpleasant things and there were nonsensical moments. And Sex. I hate sex scenes. i find them to be very... **shudders** i don't like them.
Went to brunch and, as predicted, got asked many questions about my personal life, school life, etc and got asked why i am so tall. I don't have an answer. I got my daddy's genes. Thus height. I didn't drink a growth syrum. If i did, that would be neat. And i would tell you. But the food was good. Got a bit sick afterward but meh.
I watched Life today too. That was much much better than Munic. Which i didn't like. Did i mention that? I like Life. i need more of it. Yay for netflix. I also went to pageant to watch Linds perform. They did very good. I was impressed. But the other shows were entertaining. There was a lost hat, three lost plumes and a student in the wrong place. Like very wrong place. Ten yards off. It was pretty amusing the poor guy. Eldorado won third, losing to Rio Rancho and Highland, which got special permission to compete in Eldorado's division.
I want to watch Ironman but i am being a good girl so i am not watching. I am waiting and i will watch it tomorrow.
Turns out DB had a server crash, which is why i couldn't access the site. But now it is back up an running, with a new ep! Which makes me pleased. I still need to clear my harddrive again. I have like an extra gig worth of stuff on my laptop and i think i wil get another gig tonight/tomorrow.
I snapped and read all my manga. it was awesome and i need more. THis is why i don't like waiting for each week to go by. But i am excited agian. And now i don't have to worry about spoilers.
