12:47AM - Obama!
Obama won the election! Yay! I don't have an election-related icon or anything, so I'll just use the brightest, happiest one I have.
Everyone on campus was running around and cheering and hugging each other and stuff. It was awesome. I can still hear cheering from outside even now. I think I'll bake cookies or a cake or something to celebrate. Unfortunately, it's late now, so I'll have to do it tomorrow.
So, yeah, I'm happy, Isaac's happy, everyone I know is happy, and now I'm going to bed (or soon anyway). Goodnight, everyone!

3:48PM - first update in forever...
...but I've made such a horrendous, no, horrendously idiotic mistake that I feel I need to put it somewhere. See, I had a midterm exam scheduled for this morning, but for some reason, I had it in my head that it was Sunday, tomorrow. So yeah, obviously, I didn't go.
What the hell is wrong with me?!?! I'm usually so good at remember when things are scheduled, I have never missed an exam before, and now THIS happens?! How could I have been so stupid as to forget the date of my midterm?? And I hardly think "I was an idiot and forgot the date" is a good enough reason for an instructor to give a make-up exam, so I'm screwed.
Damn it, I'm supposed to graduate this December, but of course that's only if I pass the courses I'm taking this semester. I was so scared I was going to screw up somehow, and a big fat ZERO on an exam is certainly one of the best and quickest ways to fuck up your final grade. Self-fulfilling prophecy, fan-freaking-tastic. One more way for me to dissapoint my parents, myself, and the few other people who actually give some sort of crap about me.

5:49PM - External hard drive
For a few months now, I've had a really good 500 GB external hard drive, since I've been downloading more stuff than what will fit on my computer's own drive. Last week, it started acting a bit strange, and today, it finally ceased functioning. When I plug it in, the computer stalls for a few minutes, then finally recognizes that it's plugged in (this used to happen instantaneously). And I can still use the "safely remove hardware" feature to disconnect it safely. However, it refuses to let me get to any of my files. This is about 200 GB of (mostly video) files, all gone. I can only hope that the data recovery service is able to, well, recover my data. If not, I will be very upset (I'm weird in that I tend to get very attached to everything I download).

1:40AM - New Year
Happy New Year!

3:28PM - One thing I hate...
...is people who drink. And I don't mean those who have a couple of beers at a party or those who have the occassional glass of wine at dinner or anything like that. I mean those people who get piss-ass-fucked-up drunk for no reason whatsoever. The kind who inevitably throw up all their stomach contents, and manage to hit everything EXCEPT the toilet. Yet here I am, stuck in a suite with four people who do just that. And stuck in a room with one of those four. Well, she's leaving at the end of the semester, which is in about half a week. Hopefully my petition for a single room gets accepted, so I can stay in here and lock out those other three and their noxious alcohol/drug fumes.

2:16PM - Tin Man!
Haha, haven't posted in like, forever! I really should stop that habit!
So, I've decided to post to say that Tin Man is awesome. Yeah, that's the three episode mini series that aired on the Sci-Fi channel Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. It's a reimagining of The Wizard of Oz, or so they say. The story isn't alike at all, it just has lots of references.
My favorite character is Glitch, the "scarecrow" of this story. He's not a scarecrow though, but a normal human who had valuable information that the bad guys wanted, so they took out half his brain, and now he has a zipper down the middle of his head. He's happy and funny. And he dances, or so he says. Well, he's the kind of character I tend to get attached to, so...I guess I have.^^
As for the others...the "Dorothy" of this story is D.G. I think she's cool, she can actually fight for herself, rather than being helpless. I can't really go into much more about why I like her without giving away big spoilers though, so I won't. The "tinman" is Wyatt Cain. If you think his name sounds like that of a cowboy, well...he is, essentially. He's the obligatory sad past, angsting character. I didn't like him in the first episode (don't really like that type of character), but he got better in the other two. Last but not least, Raw is the "cowardly lion". He's not really a lion, but he's not really a human. But anyway, he can read people's memories and feelings. He's rather simple, but also endearing, in a way.
So anyway, yes, I think everyone should watch it! I'll end my rambling with that, heh.^^

6:58PM - Cirque du Freak
Hehe, just finished reading book one in the Cirque du Freak series (also/originally known as the Saga of Darren Shan). Ordered the next two. It's a good read. There's a vampire, a half-vampire, a snake boy, and a telepathic spider, among other things. I think the main story only starts in book two (out of twelve) though, but I guess I'll see when I get my copy. I love vampires.^^ The series has also spawned a manga (which, as far as I know, is a rare occurance for non-Japanese books), and in 2008, a movie will be coming out. They'll be condensing the first three books into one movie, I hope it ends up okay.

I do like it there, but going back means leaving Isaac here. I don't want to go somewhere without him. I probably sound selfish and childish, but...wah.

3:28PM - Tell me...
What have I ever done to deserve having comments such as "I hate her" and "I will enjoy tormenting her" made in reference to me?

12:02AM - Birthday!
It's the 14th of July! It's my 21st birthday! Yay!^^

12:59PM - good stuff
One day until my birthday! One week until Otakon! Yay! That is all^^

1:59PM - finally!
Finally, Otakon announces their musical guest! AAA! Yay, I love them.^^ Too bad they recently lost one of their members, but now I can see why Otakon had that "guess the guest" contest. I don't think very many people would have guessed AAA. But anyway, yay!^^

11:13PM - Hmm...
Hmm, this thing's basically gone and died, huh? I should try to revive it...what should I talk about?...
Well, I guess I could recommend that everyone watch/read Gintama. It is a very funny series. Samurai, aliens, giant dog-things, chocolate parfaits, bazookas...plus the main character obsessively reads Shounen Jump, which the manga actually runs in...yes.

10:15PM - Grade of "S"?
I checked my midterm grades...and for one subject, I have "S" listed as my grade. Where does this fall on the "A B C D F" scale? I have no clue.

5:24AM - papers done
Ugh, yay, final papers finally done. I am sure they suck, and that I failed at them just as I fail at everything, but they are done. Now all I have to do is one exam, and then sit back and wait for the inevitable awful grades to come in, as well as the inevitable disappointment and anger from both myself and my mother.
...I know everyone says this, but college really would be better without the work.
And my new icon...oh, I do so love that scene in the game.^^

11:09AM - Halloween
Happy Halloween everyone!
And my game finally arrived, yay!^^

9:39PM - Game
Well, what looked like an e-mail confirming shipping seems not to have been one, as I just got the confirmation e-mail today. *sigh* I'm never going to get my game, am I? I guess I'm whining, but I've already waited two months, and I'm impatient, bored, and a yaoi fangirl, which all adds up to...I want my game. T_T

4:34PM - Airmail
The lady who works in the campus mail room just told me that there is no such thing as domestic airmail, that only things shipping from overseas ship via airmail. So I guess my package, which is shipping from San Diego via airmail, does not exist?

I must admit, when I first saw the character designs for the anime version of this manga (known as "The Wallflower" in America), I didn't like them that much, but after watching the first episode, I am very happy with the adaption. All the kooky, weird crap that made the manga so amusing has been very well maintained in the anime version. It makes me wish even more that my copy of volume four hadn't vanished into thin air (I searched the house twice! Nowhere! And I lost three other manga and a book along with it! *cries*).
And my game will be shipped in a couple of days, so it should be waiting for me in my mailbox when I get back to Guilford! Yay!^^

11:36AM - ok
So I guess I really need to update this thing more frequently. I think I'll do that by actually putting stuff up here, rather than simply talking about stuff. Um, I can't think of what to put up here, though, so while I think, please give me your ideas. In the meantime, I shall reccomend that you all listen to the song "Red Fraction" by MELL. It's in English, or I guess I should say Engrish, but it's a good song whether or not you listen to the lyrics.
And in other news, I want my game (Zettai Fukuju Meirei). I ordered it two months ago, and there's still no release date, the sites just say "will be ready to ship in a few days!", which they've been saying for over two weeks now. I don't mind the waiting, I'd just actually like to know what date I'm waiting for.
