Had my first meeting with professor about just the articles and not the various hwk I have been doing all break.

He seemed impressed with what I had done, which was pretty much a huge confidence booster. I get nervous all the time still. It’s like the whole degree in four years in freaking mechanical engineering don’t mean anything or something.

Nyssa may possibly be insane.

Jason is back. I am glad because I totally missed him.

I have also caught up with Naruto… this will end BADLY. But I have a video game and it has KAKUZU in it, so I am pretty stoked.

Went to borders and bought SO MUCH STUFF! BEST DAY THIS WEEK BY FAR! but considering my week, that isn't saying much. I bought books and i read my manga and i sat back, relaxed and tried not to think too much. It actually kind of worked.

Did this on facebook so sorry RL buddies who get this twice

25 Things

1- I am absolutely doing this because I was tagged by Sarah and Cait. I am not doing this because I was tagged by Tidah. So ET can just stay the hell away from me. I have an irrational fear of the thing, and have had it since before I can remember.

2- I like background characters in novels. Right now, my favorites are Marcus Flint and Theodore Nott from Harry Potter.

3- If I could play Quidditch, I would want to be a beater.

4- If I were sorted into a Hogwarts house, I would be in any other house than Gryffindor. Mostly because I am not brave. I am reasonably smart, loyal to the point of stupidity, and I am willing to sacrifice part of myself for something better.

5- I really love what I am doing. I may complain a lot about engineering, but I can’t see me doing anything else and enjoying it this much.

6- There was a time when I wanted to be a math and science teacher, but I decided that after essentially teaching people for four years in High School Math that I didn’t want to do that for the rest of my life.

7- I can explain the Bernoulli Equation off the top of my head, but I can’t add 5+8 or 5+7 without pausing for a moment and I can’t subtract negative numbers easily.

8- I have obsessive compulsive disorder. It doesn’t destroy my life, but it does make things difficult at times. I finish books even if I hate them, get up to arrange things at 3am and I will collect things, not because I want to but because I have to.

9- I read over 100 books last year. And only three of them sucked so badly that I almost overcame my obsessive compulsive disorder.

10- Twilight wasn’t one of them. I was surprised too.

11- I never wanted to be a vampire. I wanted to be a werewolf. Twilight only reassured me that I made the right choice.

12- I own hundreds of Japanese comic books. Last official count (made almost a year ago), I had over 550. I have probably bought at least a 150 since then.

13- When I was in fourth grade I dotted my I’s with circles. To this day if I am forced to write in script I put circles over my I’s. I don’t want to, I just do.

14- I talked like a valley girl when I was 9. If you get me started talking like that as a joke, I have a hard time stopping.

15- I am terrified of singing in public. Karaoke is my personal hell.

16- I have never watched an episode of American Idol. Other people doing Karaoke makes me nervous too.

17- I am named after a Companion from the TV Series Doctor Who. And nothing made my day more than hearing the Tenth Doctor on the new Doctor Who say “Nyssa”.

18- I don’t like dark chocolate. I also don’t like strawberries. But I will eat both if I am offered.

19- I don’t nap.

20- One of my most vivid memories was walking to my family’s graveyard in Sinchi Japan when I was 10. I didn’t know where we were going when we left. I was lead out of the house by my cousins and we walked down a tree lined road and past dead rice patties and if you looked to the east, you could see the ocean. I can still see it if I close my eyes.

21- When I was in Japan last time, I was given a good fortune at a shrine in Sendai. I tied it onto the line with all the others and I still hope every part of it comes true.

22- I had my first kiss in the band hall. I wasn’t in band, and I don’t think he was either.

23- I don’t scar easily. I have 8 scars I can see. Two are on my hands, two are on my lips (I cut myself on the dishwasher when I was 1), one is on my shoulder, one on my chest, one over my ribs and one on my stomach. The one over my ribs looks like a bullet wound.

24- I love clothes. I just don’t have the patience to go shopping.

25- My name means “sign” in Hebrew, “Friendly elf or fairy” in Scandinavian, and “woman” in Arabic. In Greek it is “goal” or “the beginning”. In Latin, it means “end”.

A month and a half later and I am now 5/8 of the way through my undergraduate degree, have had to make emergency plans for next semester, wrote 50000 thousand words, cried in public, changed, evolved and did something I never thought was possible. And went to church. Surprising? Hell yeah.

Okay… I finished Nanowrimo. Did my 50000 words. Had a neat spreadsheet too. I actually finished early this year. But I finished. And haven’t touched it since.

I also read Twilight. Also surprising. Totally met my expectations: Shallow, mutilation of the vampire mythos, ruining the expectations of preteen fangirls who think abusive control freak boyfriends are attractive. And then I saw the movie… AND IT WAS AWESOME!... okay the awesomeness revolved around how the actors seemed to know exactly how creepy the original characters were. And Jasper made me giggle with his seemingly constant mantra of “food… food… food over there… food over here… food… food… OMG THE FOOD IS TOUCHING ME WHAT DO I DO?”

I also got back into good old Final Fantasy XII. I played a ton of Final Fantasy XII: RW… yeah… that was dumb as I played instead of studying on occasion but **shrugs** I enjoyed it. I am still playing because I am sadly like 8 levels below a boss and I have fought everything to level up so now it is pointlessly fighting repeatedly until I win. Not fun but I learn something new every time. But I also restarted Final Fantasy XII. I am like 1/3 of the way through the plot. Which means I am like 1/15 of the way through everything… I also got Ninja Storm. Holy lord I love that game. Need to get 100% completion though… need.

School wise…

Thermodynamics: So that test in October, I got a 69, with the average at 65ish. My final test in thermo I totally screwed up. Like… we are talking 48 kind of score. It was bad. Very bad. But I took the final. And I got the high of the four of us who took it. And I got an 82 (which beat my highest score by a lot!) and so he gave me a B. He said he would give me a B- if I got a 70 and a B if I got a 86. So apparently I stunned him and he gave me a B. Like I was so excited! There was shouting and I almost swore very badly in front of my parents.

Econ: A+. Pretty good considering I did nothing in that class. Except read books. And do homework for other classes.

Fluid Mechanics: So I got the average on the second test but on the last test I got a 92! I put it on the fridge I was so proud of it. And I have never put anything on the fridge. I ended up not taking the final and getting a B in the class, which I am very proud of.

Linear Algebra: Got an A. But oh lord my Final. So it was on Tuesday, and it snowed like 3 inches the night before. So they had a two hour delay. We got an email saying that it was cancelled. So Dan, Fernando and I ran off and played in the snow. Then we got an email saying that the final had been moved to three. After THREE emails saying it was cancelled. We were hella pissed.

Mechanics of Materials: I got a B+… and after that final I was like OH THANK GOD! Because that final made me go “oh shit” a few times. It was upsetting.

Other than that I am all registered for next semester, but ME314 might be cancelled because UNM isn’t giving anyone money. Which sucks a lot because it screws some of us over. So… emergency plans have been made. Hope they will not be put into effect.

Other parts of life:

The last month and a half has been incredibly stressful. To the point where I acted like a girl and cried. And was horribly depressed. And felt trapped, tied down, alone and hysterical. Hopefully that will clear up because… while I will survive it, I am not sure if I want to do that again.

Other than that, I have read many books. I am stumbling through Brisingr right now. And all I care about it Morzan, who has sadly been dead for nearly 17 years story wise. So … I am craving a dead character who is mentioned about once every 100 pages. Pathetic I know but... can’t help it.

But that is my life, what I have been doing. How everything is going. How I have recovered from the worst semester so far in college, that nearly crippled me.
 

And so, in a cliché look to the future, I hope everyone (including myself) has a Merry Christmas. I will probably post an entry at midnight repeating that… and one tomorrow. But Merry Christmas Everyone. And to all your families as well. Enjoy it.

The election is over. Obama is the new president. I am not as enthusiastic as my peers about who won. Don't nag me about it. My vote is my own and i can only hope that everyone voted wisely. It is a "move foward for black people" and a "step backward for civil rights". To quote a peice of flair i saw, if we are over racism, why does it matter if Obama is black. It was a sad day for Civil rights as prop H8TE passed in california, which was a suprise. the other few gay rights issues that passed (gay marriage bans in Florida and Arizona) were... well i wasn't aware they were on the ballots so i can't say if i expected it to be one way or another. The adoption ban in Arkansas (which technically says that unwed couples cannot adopt, not that gay couples can't adopt) was kind of a shoe in, which is sad but a sad fact none the less.

The speeches wer beautiful, and i still haven't gotten over whatever aflicted me last week as the mention of Obama getting his daughters a puppy made me cry. McCain's concession speech was beautiful and he proved himself to be quite the honorable man.

The election is over, and that makes me exctatic though. There were annoying people in teh sub that made me so tense i almost hurt someone. They were people in the sub asking me who i voted for (obviously pro-Obama) and when i said i wouldn't tell them who i voted for because i haven't told my own sister (who i tell everything), their attitude went from polite to hostile. It was upsetting and rude. And the plane came back. **hates planes**

Other than that, i did homework today and watched soccer with Fernando while we ate a late lunch. I watched the states turn colors. Got nervous every time that a state changed color. I also wrote some. Need to get some writing done before i have like 50 tests.

Well not 50. I have three tests next week. And my video game that i neeeed came out today. So i think i may snap and go buy it on friday. We shall see.

So i have no tests this week but i do get to spend the entire week wondering when i am going to get my Thermo Exam Back and doing a ton of homework, and doing my thermo test again probably because he will probably assign it as a problem set.... >.> Fan-freaking-tastic.
I know i am going to get behind. Which means i will probably not be able to catch up until next week sometime. Especially since i have two read four books this week and i desprately want my new video game. Like Badly.
IN other news. two more days and then the election madness will go away. Which makes me giddy. To like an insane degree.
Uh....

So i have this horrible feeling i am about to be brutally stabbed in the back by my boss, to the point where i make sure Altair never turns his back on the bastard. Cuz i am 99.9% sure he is evil because he won't answer any of Altair's questions and... He stabbed altair like 15 minutes into the game... which is just not awesome. In Other news, Altair needs to man up and apologize to Malik. Cuz although their banter/arguments are entertaining, poor Malik is stuck in the Assassin's place.... But they are silly...
I read my manga today. HOLY FUCKING SHIT DANZO IS JUST AS EVIL AS I SAID HE WAS! HAHA BASTARDS!
...>.> In other news OMFG! Linds laughed at me.... i returned with a stuck out tongue and then we watched a movie together. Since she i sleeping in the Living room so i can't play assassin's creed until like 3am...especially since she has to go to take the PSAT tomorrow....

Kinda wish the balloon fiesta wasn't throwing down because it screws up traffic like woah. Though balloons are way pretty.
there was a pop quiz in Thermo today. **groan** i don't think i did well... Procedure wise i did it right, i just can't do math correctly. Next week is gunna suck. Three days and two tests? Freaking awful. Plus i have homework and Linear Algebra is screwing it all up by having homework that isn't one of my hardcore classes and is not one of my test classes. Curse you Linear, Curse you.
But other than that i got to read manga today! Pretty new cover image and A Happy Birthday Shout Out.

Cloud has been confirmed for Dissidia! YAY CLOUD PUFF! I am soo excited and me watching Tokyo Game Show 2008 things on youtube is so not my homework which is why i spent way to long doing homework today. Sucky Sucky.
But CLOUD! I LOVE CLOUD.. not as much as i love Squall but i love Cloud... and i am so glad they kept Squall jerky. All the Heroes have been announced, though Cloudpuff has not been featured in any current releated Videos from squeenix. But he looks like he did in crisis core. He's so cute! This game had better come out in the US.
I also found the new trailers for like 10 different video games. Birth by sleep and 358/2days were there as well. And kingdom hearts mobile is disturbingly cute.
I went to dinner with Tidah today. Saggios! It was delish. Got pizza and smoothie! Yummy! Tidah and i wandered around afterward looking for Twilight. It was no where to be found but she found a pdf version and stuff. But twilight is evil. 1/2 an hour of my life just vanished like magic.
I did alot of homework again. I hate homework. I hate it alot. I can't wait until tomorrow. I have puppies to cuddle. Though i do have to go over my tests with Daddy, which is just my worst nightmare....

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.

I have Ironman. Yeah, i know. Purty awesome. I think i need some graphics for it. We shall get around to that eventually. Maybe put it on the to do list. My mother knows how to make me feel better after an exhausting day, especially with bad test scores. She takes me to target and lets me loose. And i go find trading cards, glow sticks and a movie. And my mommy buys them for me. Well not the trading cards but the trading cards make me feel better. Especially when they glitter and shine.
Today was pretty sucky school wise. I mean it could have been much worse but.. I got my test back for Thermo. I got a 59%, with the freaking curve. But he said that a 66 was a C+ so i have no idea what my score is. But I will endure. **groans** we shall see how badly i want to hurt myself come end of the semester. Econ was delisiously dull. I helped Fernando finish his econ homework and then i found out when my econ exam will probably be. It's going to be the wednesday before fall break. In Fluids we got the answers for the Exam and i kinda am depressed because i made another dumb mistake, more than i thought i did. So we will see how badly i did later. he said our tests are graded but i am afraid to email him and ask my score so i will wait until monday.
This weekend looks to be fairly relaxing. I have to go to brunch tomorrow and be the perfect granddaughter. Which means questions about my personal life, my tests, college, my friends, my personal life Not fun but i like my family so i will be he perfect grandaughter. Then i will probably go to Pageant. Linds gets to ditch brunch, which is so not fair. Other than that it looks empty. Have to wait for the rest of my lab group to give me the parts so i can compile it but... other than that we are good.
Freakng DB might have banned e because i clicked on a wrong link. Which pisses me off but i guess we will find out if i am perminantly banned. The new eps haven't come out either, which makes me sad. I still haven't read teh manga, but i think i am going to snap soon, maybe tomorrow.
My dad's birthday is on Wednesday. I need to get him a present. Maybe Linds and I will go tomorrow after she gets done with Pageant.

Back to the crying. My thermo exam was awful. i am for sure taking the final in that class. I can't even really think about it without wanting to cry, so i am not thinking about it, damnit. After my exam i cleaned my dorm room to make myself feel better, which was a very good plan, although i forgot that i actually have a twin extra long so it was hard to deal with the fact that my frame is smaller than the bed it is on. Which sucks by the way but i did it, with minimal crying.
Econ was actually the pick me up of the day, as sad as that sounds. Econ was my last class of the day as well as i did not have Fluids today. But half the class didn't show up to Econ so the remaining half of the class got two points extra credit. Which is way awesome. Tyler and I looked at each other and were like "you know what, those two little points probably saved my life". I also finished Bunker 10 which was sad and made me want to cry, mostly because everyone died. Dying isn't cool, especially when they are kids. but it was good. finally figured out the timeline.
Then i went home. Well i took the long way home. Costco with daddy and then i went home and DLed my fix and then i went to borders with Linds, for the first time since i think the beginning of september. i got two manga, both of which i have been waiting for. Samurai Deeper Kyo and I are edging closer and closer to the manga i bought in Japan. I bouth 31 and 32. 30 just released. And i was super lucky cuz 31 and 32 feature fights involving my favorite charactes, ones that (from my interpretation of the images) almost kill both of them. Course this is SDK and someone almost dies like... once a manga. It's a tradition but this time, it is Hotaru and Akira and they are fight Yuan and Tokito... **smiles brightly** i love SDK.
I also watched Life. I like my quirky detectives. Also it never fails to amuse that Damian Lewis (the guy who plays Crews) is also the Guy who plays Yassen in Stormbreaker. I find it funny... specially since i have never seen him act with his british accent and have thus far seen him with a Russian accent and an American Accent. It's funny.

Oh thank god for Friday. And next week. So i have figured out a bit too much about my upcoming life. You shall see it. Today i went to Thermo and got the answers to the pop quiz on wednesday. I am pretty sure i aced it now. I don't have the numbers but the answers were closer to the ones i remember getting. Plus i kept sigfigs like none other. So i hope that means i have a 100% to cancel out my like 52% fromt the first quiz. Went back to my dorm, edured the beeping and looked over my economics notes for the test. Took Econ test (first of 20, done!) and it wasn't too bad. We shall see. I think i did well. Found out when my fluids exam is (monday after next) and that i have no class on upcoming friday (9/26). Which means i will probably not have fluids homework to go with my thermo exam.

Went to the fair today with mom and dad just for an hour or two. Pet some puppies, played with the chickens and looked at the art exhibits. I also bought 7 posters.... 2 Final Fantasy VII, 2 Final Fantasy XII (and Versus), 1 Final Fantasy Crisis Core, 1 Kingdom Hearts and One N:S... Damn need wall space. TGF dormroom huh? Got some wooden roses as well. Super pretty.

Watched Dexter Season Two! I love Dexter! Alot! I think it is the internal monolog... feels like Fight Club a bit... which i should read sometime...>.>

So I am home. Found Battle Royale II-Requiem and got the latest ep. Still going through with drawl but i think i can endure it another day or two.
Today i watched lots of Heroes, which i love. Totally have a thing for Sark/Kensei-Adam/random background guy in Greys/random guy in CSI/David Anders. Like seriously. He's pretty awesome... and blonde... which is way yay! And he got his boyish curls back. I was so depressed when they shaved his head in Alias. I love It! I love Hiro! I love Ando and Peter and Nathan and Sylar. It makes me want to spend big at borders and buy lots (omg lots) of comic books and dvds. Though i think Battle Royale will win first because there are collectors huge editions. We shall see. Depends on homework. So now i go to delete more things and back up... >.> Groan of angst.... Need to do some more things on the to do list

**dies** today was long. but i got alot done so i can't complain. Managed to finish Linear, WileyPlus for tomorrow and got far along in Mechanics. Only one more left. I also finished m book today and started up a new one. I only have 25 more library books to work through... >.> Yay?

Freaks reminds me alot of Geek Love from high school. Same basic premise of circus freaks. Cept it's been tamed down slightly for a broader audience. Which reminds me, i want to read Middlesex at some point. Blame a passing interest in Nip/Tuck/. But books are back and i am glad for them. I missed them.

One more day. Huzzah but i am slowly melting. I am glad for the weekend. The fair is in town so i wanna go. Hopefully i can go before Borders comes and eats me or something.

Tonight is a new release. I am a whole fucking month behind. I am going through withdrawal. It's sad. So that is why the to do list must be mostly completed today. I doubt I will get through it all but most of it... most of it is close enough to earn my reward (for example, Lab Report can wait until the actual weekend).

There is something i want to add to my to do list. I have a mood theme... Battle Royal! maybe get that all uploaded so i can play with it. Huzzah!

WHOO HOO LISTS!

Since I haven’t updated in like a Bazzillion years. Well okay I said happy birthday to myself but… meh.

Time for lists

California:

Saturday- driving. Yuck yuck yuck. I drove from Needles to Victorville. It was a long and boring drive. I spent most of it counting semis. We stayed in Dolphin Cove resort, which is a block from Disneyland. We watched the fireworks from the balcony and planned out what we were going to do during our trip.

Sunday- SeaWorld. Free Willy damaged a generation who look at poor Shamu and think he is depressed. And 30 seals all barking for food is one of the scariest things I have ever seen. Shortly proceeded by the creepy chant/bowing thing that the people do to make Shamu splash. Super pretty in SeaWorld. We rode the Atlantis ride multiple times. I pet some manta rays.

Monday- DISNEYLAND! I LOVE DISNEYLAND! I rode Space Mountain for the first time. All the other times I have been to Disneyland it has been closed. Many many rides. I love it! We went on rollercoasters as well. It was sooo much fun! I love Disneyland!

Tuesday- Wild Animal Park! OMG BABY LIONS ARE SO CUTE! They are sooo adorable there are just no words. So cute! And sheep! And Deer! OMG PETTING ZOO! I love animals!

Wednesday- Universal Studios is awesome. Though ½ of it burned down two days before, so the tour kinda sucked. BUT MARVEL STORE! I GOT AN IRON MAN T-SHIRT! And some other things that will be in my birthday pile… lol

Thursday- DISNEYLAND! Cut short because my dog was not good. Parade that day though! I love Disneyland. Great day all around. I love Disneyland. Ate a delish tostada salad at the Mexican restaurant. Bought cellphone charms. I have a crown like Sora’s.

Friday- Drive back. Drove again. Made it back late at night. Ughness all around…

 

Birthday GIFTS/Self given gifts (still buying):

Star Wars PSP- HOLY OMFG!

Two manga bought by others, both of which were new releases. One of which I was desperate for because omfg SAIYUKI FINALLY!

Plushie- my first plushie that is not shaped like a normal American stuffed animal.

Two shirts- one anime (first one for that too) and this awesome tank top backless hoodie thing. Linds mentioned it looked like Kairi’s hoodie thing in KH2. Totally awesome

Hair clip extension in a nice magenta color. I think I need more.

MOVIE IN TIN- Which is like yay.

Crisis CORE and SG from Dusty- purty… super purty…  like woah purty.

NUNH and NUNH2 for my PSP.

Two self bought manga- another one I have been craving and the latest in the craze.

Gaming case for PSP.

Final Fantasy II- YAY MORE FINAL FANTASY

Wolverine T-Shirt!

Money, lots of money.

Borders Gift Card

Two very nice soft pretty shirts that are way totally awesome.

Kick ass bookmark

Bracelets

Very awesome dress for the wedding from Hot Topic.

High heels for the dress.

Linds has promised me something from Squeenix. We can’t remember what lol.

Ranma ½

InuYasha

Dragon Drive

Bleach

Reborn!

Eyeshield 21

D.Grey-Man

Hunter x Hunter

Vampire Knight


I would do more but i have to get up for a plane ride in 5 hours to go to my Cousin Jennifer's wedding. Talk to you maybe there.

So i watched Zodiac today. For those who are not up to date or 'tever, Zodiac is a serial killer who was never identified (a la Jack the Ripper) and is confirmed to have killed 4 people and claimed to have killed several more. He sent letters to the police, with details and cyphers that he wanted published in the San Francisco papers. The first three part Cypher was solved by a couple who solved it using simple decoding methods. Zodiac later sent another cypher, which has never been "solved" in the strictest sense as the logic used to decode the cyphers breaks code rules. Zodiac was never identified and though they did have a prime suspect who was IDed by one of his two surviving victims, the only one to see him without his mask on. DNA evidence lead many to discredit that particular suspect (and man are there crazy websites about it). Anyway... the 340 character cypher of the zodiac is interesting... the ... i don't know what word to use... thing is... like Jack the Ripper (who has been... mostly IDed) they are probably dead.
Anyway... that is what i did today. That and read MANGA which made me cry... well... get teary eyed... and obsess over the word "lover" and want to re-read several hundred chapters to figure it out... and i will... I will just you watch.
Anyway... I need to read and go to bed.

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.

The big 400.

Might as well make it worth while.

I’ve decided the best way to do so was to wait until the end of Spring 2008 term. So here I am. I haven’t updated in over a month and I have taken more tests then I care to remember.

So now it is time for some self reflection…

Have I changed over the past year?

This time last year I was upset because my best friend was moving back to Alaska. I was taking a summer school calculus course. I was learning how to live without my bestfriend right there all over again. I spent that summer learning calc twice a week (acing the course) and reading. Yuka came in August before school started.

And then school started up and I was forced to change. Jason hugged me first day of  school and I realized that we were hugging friends and the rest is filled with more boys and humiliating moments then I can recall.

So I have changed. Because at the beginning of my sophomore year, I was timid and shy and could hardly meet Jason’s eyes. Now I do… Now I can meet people and look them in the eye and… feel like I fucking earned the right to be there. My good old study group called me brilliant. Fernando called my many times the smartest person he ever met. Doubtful, but it felt good to hear a guy in a male dominated field say that about a scrawny girl who when they first met could hardly be in the same room as him without feeling totally awkward. I have new found confidence and a new understanding of why exactly men find women so irritating. I feel like I belong, rather than the awkward residual feeling of being offset, out of place. Nothing feels better than feeling like being one of the boys in the boys game. And no matter what anyone tells you, it is still a boys game. Girls can do it, most don’t because they either a) suck at math b)suck at homework or c) don’t want to play with the boys. Lucky for me, don’t suck at math, don’t suck at homework and I don’t mind dealing with men who would rather get good grades. Anyway… I like this newer more confident capable of talking to guys she hasn’t spent months warming up to me. I smile a lot more now and I don’t feel lonely. I get my homework done and I have a good time doing it. I am enjoying college and don’t have the uneasy doubts that I had in the beginning… I have a 3.6 GPA, have been on the Dean’s List for the School of Engineering for all four semesters and have managed to maintain my hellish 18 hour days and good humor for the most part.

My hobbies however are on a downward spiral. My compulsions to buy are bad and evil and I am collecting, which is never a good sign. I am collecting many things and obsessed and need to buy CCG things… even if I don’t play. But it gives me something to obsess about in a controlled way. I have found new things to do, I love my DS and I have read more books than I probably should have this past year. And I am planning on reading more. Sounds like a plan all around.

Other than that… not much to tell. I’ve changed… but I don’t mind what I am becoming.

Two more years till full on adulthood and grad school.

Hopefully I’ll feel like I learned a lot when I get my diploma.

And now for my hard earned and hard fought for summer.

HEY

So I guess is should come clean about why i haven't been updating for a while. It's... Well Somethings were happening that i wasn't prepared to face myself. So I was trying to deny them until i figured it out. The truth is my life has drastically changed. Everything will be different from here on out and i think i am finally prepared to come clean about it.
The thing is, nothing has changed at all and i am just lazy as hell and didn't want to do Shit for a while. Happy April Fools.
So what has been happening? I haven't had ME318 lab in forever. I got a 13/15 on my ME318 Midterm, which means that i only lost two points out of my final score. As of right now, that class and I are doing well with one another! Uh... nothing in Dynamics. Chem Sucks still but meh. I have a quiz tomorrow that i conceptually get. Lets just hope i get the math this time. Diff Eq is going smashing. Homework and Quiz on friday... yay? not so much but whatever. ECE is trying to assassinate me but i got the high score on test two (79% but he grades in clumps. So i am 7 pts away from a perfect score with a 172/179).
I am thinking about doing Scriptfrenzy. 100 pgs in 30 days. Sounds interesting. We shall see.
Found three different April Fools thing today
1- Zelda movie Trailor... like Holy F'ing Whoa
2- YouTubes Featured Video's all lead to Rick Astley- Never Gunna Give You Up
3- DA changed all the avatars to little gifs... kinda cute actually. but that is because i like silly things....
Uh... i haven't been reading actual books like i am supposed to be, which is bad considering that i have like 5 books due on thursday. So i get to read all of those this week after exam tomorrow. Ugh. I will have time again soon i hope after i do my Diff Eq homework, so that will be nice.
Uh... rearranged alot over spring break. Lots of cleaning up. Might change my layout (Skulls maybe...) but redid alot and some over theres. Started running around on DA again so i posted some stuff over there earlier. Started doing that during class again. I am getting too good at Sudoku so it works out quite well i think.
IT is trying to kill me. The past few weeks have been totally traumatic. One of them is dead, another dying, another with dramatic eye locking and one is suitably worried. Plus favorite minor character action leiks woahs. Anyway i should probably head to bed so that way i can get a good nights rest before the scary exam... ugh

Everything will return when i get back home and take a new count.
