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.

I got to class on time :D

Okay not that big of an achievement but I’ll take what I can get.

ME530 Advanced Fluid Mechanics

So this class started 15 minutes late because myunm is kind of dumb. Anyway it looks to be exciting and Fun. And Ross has apparently adopted me, which I don’t mind but at the same time, I wasn’t aware I was up for adoption.

ME500 Numerical Methods

I am going to like this class. 80% homework, 10% for a midterm and 10% for a final. Any programming language we want to use? We can work together? Pretty much this class is going to be awesome. And I am apparently Ross’ pet or something which I guess I can roll with.

nikavia: (Guy Gardner: Welcome to Corpse)
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)
Got summoned to take Lindsay shopping today. I believe I have performed adequately.

Went to target and mostly just stood around while she took care of things. It was fun, but tiring and I just… smiled at nothing. I am kind of sick of target to be honest.

I then showed them around campus so they wouldn’t get lost and die first day of school. Hopefully some of it stuck.

It rained all afternoon, which was rather entertaining as that means class crawl was very wet. Betting a lot of missing/lost freshman tomorrow.

School starts tomorrow. First and only class at 11am. And no word from Professor. Guess no meetings this week either.

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: (Kakuzu)
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.

nikavia: (Guy Gardner: Welcome to Corpse)

Today I helped Lindsay move into the dorms. It was quite exciting. She and Ann are sharing a room in Santa Ana. So far, no one has died though it is IMPOSSIBLE to open their door. I was kind of irked with this development. I managed to open it twice and we filled out a work order because the door is impossible.

I introduced the kiddies to Brickyard while we were there, which was pretty neat of me if I do say so myself.

AND THEN I got to buy comic books :

Action Comics #891

Batman Beyond #3

Batman: Streets of Gotham #15

Brightest Day #8

Green Lantern Corps #51

Justice Society of America #42

Supergirl #55

My days are seriously kind of boring. But I like them.

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…

SO I haven’t talked about Sherlock yet.

Sherlock is a BBC show that is based on Sherlock Holmes, in the 21st century. It’s actually pretty good. I like the actors and the characters are pretty well done. They are brought into modern times smoothly, with poor damaged John Watson and eccentric nutjob Sherlock Holmes. The actors are pretty amazing. John is played by the same actor who played Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Sherlock is just… nice and ethereal looking. Makes them both feel otherworldly.

Personally I loved it. Love it? It ran for three eps and that was the original plan. And it was such a success that they ordered more. Only I have to wait like 8 months before that happens so I am kind of stunned and horrified they ended season one like they did. Must remember to recommend show to as many as possible.

Also, the fandom is batshit insane, more so than the Merlin Fandom. I browsed and I ended up like back 300 entries and it was only two days prior. Crazy.

So… Fernando was very drunk last night.

Like I have never been around people who drink excessively. It isn’t something I find really all that fun. But for Fernando, I would pretty much do anything to make him happy, because he is honestly one of the best friends I have ever had. And apparently I am one of his, because he told me so, repeatedly.

And hugged me quite a lot. I had a good time. But I did cry. And Cry a lot.

I also got talked into a Car Bomb. I have decided I like those, if I must have a drink in a bar that is drinklike.

.. I am really not going to be good that first week of school. My Fernando will be gone and he will be GONE and it will upset me in so many horrible ways.


out we go

nikavia: (DCU: Blackest Night)
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: (Kakuzu)
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.

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…

nikavia: (Secret Six: Deadshot)
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.
