so...It's been about a million years since I posted anything in here. I told you all that I was horrible at keeping a journal. But, I've been letting this fester, and I feel like I really need to get it off my chest. So, I'm gonna post about it here.

I'm not really looking for sympathy, and I'm not really trying to whine about it, I'm just trying to say that this has annoyed me. I'm also not trying to make anyone feel bad about what they may or may not have done.

On the hall, we have a lot of girls who have birthdays near the beginning of the year. There are several in February: Anne, Corinne, Maddie, Keli, and Joselyn. Everyone made note of these days, and then we had a big February Birthday Party at the end of the month.

In April, we have Loli on the 7th, Doddy on the 14th, and me on the 17th. And then in May, we have Lana on the 5th.
The hall threw a huge party for Loli, and then another one for Doddy. On the eve of Lana's birthday, we all went into her room at midnight and watched her open presents, and gave her a cake-type thing.
My birthday went almost completely unobserved. I got a few presents, and Kat and Suzu took me out to dinner, but most of the hall seemed to forget about it. I know this was partially my fault because I was working on Sunday, but still.

On another note, people (namely Loli) keep giving Lana food-type things for the summer, saying things like, 'oh, she's going to be living on campus this summer, I don't want her to go hungry.' and 'I want her to have things to eat.'
I too am going to be living on campus this summer, with no car and little access to anything other than Kroger for my meal options. Yet, no one has offered me so much as a package of ramen. (That's not strictly true, Jennifer Waterhouse and Doddy both told me that I was welcome to come eat dinner at their house sometimes, but I'm still feeling a little bit forgotten and abandoned.)

I'm 20 years old, about to be a Junior in college, and I should be self-sufficient and able to stand on my own. But I'm feeling a little bit like I need someone to lean on. Maybe it's just end-of-the-year blues. Maybe it's the fact that in a couple of months Kat will be going away to grad school, and for the first time in our lives, we'll be living in different states, in different time zones. I don't know, I just kind of wish I didn't feel so ignored and alone.

Surrealist Jokes!!!

mood: amused amused

I have recently (and by recently, I mean just today...) discovered a great appreciation for surrealist jokes. So I thought I'd share a few:

How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
Two, one to hold the giraffe and another to fill the wheel barrow with brightly coloured machine tools.

How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
Three. One to hold the giraffe, and one to throw brightly coloured power tools into the bathtub.

What is the similarity between a monkey and a bicycle?
The both have wheels except for the monkey.

What is the difference between a duck?
The one eye is blue and the other eye is also green.

What is the difference between a duck?
One of its legs is both the same.

Why did the bed cross the road?
Because he wanted to send e-mail from space and there were no telephone poles.

There are two penguins on an ice floe, drifting north into warmer waters. These penguins are very fond of each other, but they don’t speak English very well. Suddenly, with a terrific crack, the ice floe splits in half, right between the penguins. As they begin drifting apart, one penguin sadly waves a flipper and calls out, “Chocolate milk!”

What do you get when you cross a surrealist with a mafia don?
An offer you can't understand

And the one which started the madness:
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Staple Gun!

I got the first season of The Muppets on DVD for Yule! It made me ecstatic!!! I love the Muppets! Especially the Swedish Chef!

I also got a PRINTER!!! Which makes me VERY happy. No more getting up early to trek over to Dana to print out assignments...only to find out that one or both the printers aren't working.

I'm also planning to get a DS... and Anyar is trying to get a Wii, which she will be bringing back with her if she procures one. Wish her luck!

Now, it is almost 3:30am, and I am going to sleep. Goodnight all.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In November I gave tammypierce a Dutch Oven (-10 points). Last Wednesday I signed my organ donor card (28 points). In August I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). In April I punched nimori in the arm (-10 points). Last Monday I put money in sssargon's expired parking meter (14 points).

Overall, I've been nice (348 points). For Christmas I deserve a new dolly!

And, just because the first bit of this one was rather amusing:
Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In October I turned ashita_wa_ok in for running naked in the mall (3 points). Last week I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last Sunday I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). In January I pulled tsuki_no_suzu's hair (-5 points). In June drgnofdarkness and I robbed a bank (-50 points).

Overall, I've been nice (266 points). For Christmas I deserve a Sony Playstation 3!

what I find most amusing about this exercise is that sometimes buying porn for someone else gives you 10 points, and sometimes its -10 points...

Things I Wish Someone Had Warned me About:

Nov. 7th, 2007 | 12:49 pm
location: my room - C206
mood: stressed stressed
music: Courtney's music...

1. Chem 105 - BASIC Chemistry - INTRO-LEVEL Chemistry requires CALCULUS!
- I've never taken Calculus. In high school, I passed Trig with a 'C,' and barely passed Pre-Calculus 2. I also struggled through every minute of it. Pre-Calc 2 brought me to tears several times.
- I've basically given up on Chemistry. At this point, I'm just hoping to pass.

2. When it rains, it pours.
- Thanksgiving break falls right before the end of the semester. All the professors make tests, papers, and projects due the two weeks before Thanksgiving break, because there isn't time afterward. (okay, this I was warned about...)

3. Being a senator for a dying club, whose other members are all really busy, makes you become President, VP, Secretary, and Senator, all-in-one.
- I'm in charge of getting the club a new email account, because ours somehow got deleted
- I've got to get our page on the SGA website up to date.
- I need to make sure they have a copy of our constitution. I don't even know if we have a constitution.
- I had to sit the table at the Halloween Carnival all by myself. (Which I don't blame anyone for, since the car accident had just happened.)
- I have to give the semester report, aka I have to get up in front of senate and tell them all we've done NOTHING!

I am a first-semester, first-year student. I'm still trying to adjust to the work load of college. I have TWO work study jobs. I'm the Secretary of Foundation 42. I understand that the other members of the Field Hockey team have their own things going on. To name a few, sssargon is a senior, and captain of the hall. goldcelestial is president of WA2. I don't blame everyone for being busy, but I DO NOT have the ability, the time, or the desire to run a club all by myself.

I'm pretty much ready to just shut down. I can tell its going to happen. And this is what will happen. I will stop doing all homework, all reading assignments. I will ignore the fact that they exist. I will spend my free time reading for pleasure and surfing the internet. My migraine will come back, and persist. I will stop caring about everything, and I'll start being mean to my friends.

So, in case you couldn't tell, I'm feeling really stressed out. I'm pretty much stretched to my limits. If I snap at you, I probably don't mean it, and I'm sorry.

Why the hell not? I'll make a list too.

Oct. 30th, 2007 | 01:42 pm

Things that I need to do before Neko:

Advising appointment with Moeckel
Psych class
Contact Aunt Sandy about paper for Water
go to goodwill?
Pack for Neko
Chem Lab report & homework

Pack Suzu's car
Write rough draft of paper for Water(due Tuesday)

Water class
do all my homework for the weekend
Psych class
leave for Neko

wow, not as bad as I thought it would be, but I'm sure there's something I'm leaving off this list...maybe I'll skip psych today, if I can find someone to take me to goodwill...

location: Tinker 2 common room
mood: equal parts cold, sad & pissed equal parts cold, sad & pissed
music: SILENCE!!!

ranting below...feel free to just skip to the next text break...

As if it weren't bad enough, this past week was Hell Week, or production week of our fall drama production. Because of this, my stress level has been through the roof. I had a migraine that started on Tuesday evening, and pretty much followed me through Sunday.
Add to that my friends getting in a car accident Saturday evening, and my stress level doesn't exactly go down. (They're all fine, nothing worse than a mild concussion and stitches required.)
On top of that, my roommate's mother came for Family Weekend, and is staying in our room...which would be okay, except for the fact that I think she snores just about as loud as my mother does.
I think I managed to drift off, in that half-asleep state, for no more than an hour...
I know I'm going to get yelled at, that many of you would have let me sleep in your room instead, but I didn't really want to bother, and really didn't want to impose. Besides, I didn't really begin to give up sleeping until 2am, and didn't give up entirely until about a half hour ago, putting me at about 5:30am...I didn't want to risk someone else who needed sleep being woken up on account of me.
And, truth be told, I didn't want to offend my roommate's mother by going 'oh, I'll just go elsewhere tonight so I can actually get some sleep!' I thought it would be okay, and once I got tired enough, I would be able to just drift off.
So, here I sit, in the computer room in the dorms. Its freezing cold in here. So I am both exhausted and COLD!!! Not a good combination.
So here I am, looking into the week ahead, at classes galore, followed by NekoCon next weekend. If I didn't have to save my last Chemistry absence for this friday, for the con, I would totally not be going tomorrow.

Speaking of the Con, I need to make a goodwill run before this weekend, preferably before wednesday, so I have it for Samhain. Anyone willing to take me?

so, it's Tinker Day...

Oct. 16th, 2007 | 08:02 am
location: my room - C206
mood: cranky and exhausted cranky and exhausted
music: Courtney's music...

which is good, and at the same time bad.
It is good because it means that I don't have classes today, so I can catch up on homework and sleep.

It is bad because I stayed up for the Tinker scare at 1am, so didn't get to bed until almost two, and then got woken up at 6am. Also, I just gave blood last night, and when I went to get donuts this morning, I kept having dizzy spells. I also have that bone-weary tired feeling that I always get after giving blood, that all-encompassing lethargy, where all I want to do is sleep. So, in light of current circumstances, I decided it was best if I didn't climb a friggin' MOUNTAIN today. I'm sure you all understand.

So, I went and got donuts with the rest of Otaku, and then I came back to my room to take a shower and go back to sleep. Unfortunately for me, Courtney had knee surgery this summer, so there will be no mountain climbing for her either. She likes to sleep with music on, which is rarely a problem, because she has headphones and it doesn't bother me too much. But on some occasions, she turns it up pretty loud, and I cannot sleep with music that I know that has a vocal part playing in the background, because I sing along in my head, and can't sleep. Of course, this morning just had to be one of those days where she plays her music loudly. so here I sit, completely exhausted, but unable to sleep because of her music.

I can't wait until J-Term when I can move into my single on Otaku. And to top it all off, my hair STILL smells like GRAPE, even after I've shampooed it twice since it was dyed...

I'm off to try and sleep again....
