jupiterhalo: ([The Bouncer] No Escape)
I ended up riding my bike a lot this weekend! Eight miles yesterday, and another 12 today. I'm quite proud of myself for getting back into the groove of things and taking advantage of the nice weather we've been having.

I went to LotP today, after [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I finished cleaning the office and played a bit of The Bouncer, and ordered some new shoes to wear to work. I'm very excited to get them, as they're fricking adorable.

I went to look at cars yesterday with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], since I need a new one desperately. xD We ended up spending about three hours at one dealership, because the guy helping us was totally smarmy and couldn't understand the words "I'm just looking, thanks."

I don't really think there's anything else pressing going on right now. Just work and school, pretty much. Although, I'll be really happy once the semester is over. Work can stop being a bitch any time, now.

Well, it's been too long since I've updated. So here is a meme that I stole from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]!

Meme underneath )

Whew! Now that I have that out of the way... xD

I got my hair cut on Friday. It actually looks pretty good! They took about eight inches off, and I really like it short. Dark and short, that's how my hair should be. xD But yes, we did our Silent Hill party last night. And I have to say, I'm not very impressed with that game series so far. I think I'll stick with Resident Evil, because at least that scares me.

School's been going okay, although I wish I was done. Psychology has been really boring, and I want nothing more than to just give up on it. I got a 71.7% on our first test, but considering that the class average was 65%, I think I did pretty well. I just wish that it was December already.

EDIT: OMG. So. Tina's passenger side door is broken. xD It's locked and it won't open. So now it's like Joe's car, where you have to Dukes of Hazzard your way into the passenger side. Shannon's leg muscles apparently hurt from doing that so much yesterday. xD Needless to say, I'm amused.
jupiterhalo: (Oh snapz)
Okay! So.

It turns out that it's not going to take $1100 to fix my car. Oh no. My mechanic kept finding things wrong with it (like replacing the radiator since it leaks, as well as replacing the serpentine belt EVEN THOUGH I JUST GOT THAT REPLACED IN EARLY MAY). So... my grand total is like... $1711 or something like that. Thanks a lot, Jiffy Lube, for selling me a bad serpentine belt when I went to go get my oil changed in May. xD;

Well, I have most of my stuff moved back already. It's currently sitting out in the garage, waiting for the day when my dad and I can move things around in my new/old room and make room for all of my stuff. The only things I need to grab from Loveland now are all of my shoes, bedding and blankets. My dad and I definitely worked our asses off trying to get mostly everything back in one trip.

At least I finally get to be away from work and FoCo and all that for a few days~ Hopefully the cherry blossom festival is fun! I'm excited to go to Boondocks and Dave and Busters, too. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]! We will finally get our race in the Ini D game. T_T

Oh! [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]! I mailed out those books for you today! :D The guy said it will take 2-3 days to get to you~ So... probably by Wednesday you'll have them.

And the first season of Supernatural arrived for me today! I watched an episode while I was folding my laundry. xD Good times, good times.


Edit: Awesome! I just got a Salmon IM. xD First time in a while, too. The name ControlledSalmon made me LoL.
jupiterhalo: (Longest day ever)
... $1100 to fix my car. T_T

At least I know that the problem will be taken care of, now.
jupiterhalo: (Kami-sama)
First off, the meme! )

So anyway! Diane, the lady that I do jobsharing with, is on vacation this week. Her son is graduating from boot camp in California, so I'm working a full week while she is gone. It hasn't been too bad yet! Monday was a pain, though, since I had no work at all to do. x_x The only bad thing about being at the front desk for that long is that I run out of stuff to do rather quickly, and I can't read a book or surf the internet. At least I had enough to do today (I even saved work for myself tomorrow).

And in other news, Tina broke down. xD; Again. Luckily, this is only the second time she's done that, so I really can't complain. It's not like with Foxxxy, who was breaking down every other day (or so it seemed). Tina's water pump is apparently broken, and my dad said that he could fix it. I am really scared as to what he can do to screw up my car, but I really don't have a choice. It's not like I have the money to take her to a mechanic. So I'll see what my dad does, and if he screws up royally, then I'll just have to find the money from somewhere.

I'm really liking Supernatural at the moment! It's by the same guys who did Miracles, so I can understand now why there are a lot of crossovers between the two shows. I just wish that Miracles had the chance to go into 3+ full seasons, instead of having only 13 episodes... but oh well. I saw the first eight episodes of the first season over the weekend, and I think I'm going to try and get the next few discs for the coming weekend.

I also saw Sex and the City last night. I think I'm way too cynical for that kind of movie. xD
jupiterhalo: (Nanao and Shunsui)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

xD I really feel like I had to answer this one. My first car was a 1985 Mazda 626, affectionately known as Foxxxy Brown (because she was brown). She was a good car in the beginning, and everyone loved her sunroof. Then... probably after about six months, she began to have problems. She would break down for no reason, and stall if I was stopped for too long at lights and stop signs. She got what we called a teardrop tattoo (because we thought she was so ghetto xD) when I got into an accident in Greeley and damaged the front light of my car. Otherwise, she was pretty indestructible, and the only other thing that got damaged while I had her was her back bumper (which got a ton of scratches).

Well, I finally had to get rid of her in December of 2006 (after receiving her in August of 2003). She just broke down on probably one of the coldest nights of that month, and Shannon and I were stranded in her for at least an hour or two while my dad came to get us. xD; He couldn't figure out why she had broken down, and neither could our mechanics. So we donated her to Habitat for Humanity, and I got my cute little convertible as my next car. <3

The last I heard, they were still trying to get Foxxxy to run. xD;

And ack, moving day is tomorrow! @_@ And I'm nowhere close to even being remotely packed! I can't believe that it's here already!

Well, at least this was a longer entry than I've been having lately. But, of course, I bring you all a quiz; taken from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]:

Wheeee! )
jupiterhalo: (Ran <3)
...So I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon as well. xD

Wow. This is the first one I've seen where the highest commenter isn't the person who has the journal. xD Well, congratulations, Shannon (even though I'm not surprised)! *gives her pictures of seme Yuushi and uke Ran* :0

In other news, I'm going to get Tina-chan some seat covers today~! :D I'm very excited about that... and our butts will be less cold when we ride in her. Next week I'm planning on getting her a CD player (finally). If I have to take her to GJ, there is no way I'm settling for the radio. So, yeah... lots of car stuff I need to do in the next couple weeks. Tina, you are going to be so pampered by the time I'm done!

Wheee, Jacob read my card and sent me a nice e-mail about it. :D

That makes me very happy; I sent him one back. Hopefully we can start talking again.


I had my first accident with Tina-chan tonight! :0 Some guy rear-ended me at Harmony and Shields. But it seems like Tina-chan has an indestructible bumper like Foxxxy, because she doesn't even have a scratch on her (at least none that I could see). So I sent him merrily on his way...

And since I got hungry, I went to McDonald's for some nugs. Is it bad when the McDonald's guy that hits on you knows your order and what your car looks like? :/

And while I was waiting for my nugs, I saw some cop pull a guy over for absolutely no reason. Wtf.

And I've got to stop going to Barnes and Noble... xD; I bought two more books today. "Platinum Garden" volume 3 and "FAKE" volume 1, and I had them order "Angel Sanctuary" volume 1 for me. It's so tempting, I just can't resist... ;o;

Whee, so I haven't had a real update in a little while. xD;

I GOT A CAR! :D :D :D :D It's a white 1990 Ford Mustang convertible. I got it last Tuesday (the 30th of January, I believe). I drove it around for almost exactly one day. And then my locks froze and my dad broke them. T_T So, Tina-chan (my car's name; originally it was Aya, but Muss and I decided that Tina would be more appropriate, after the "DOA" character) sat in my driveway until Sunday, when my dad tried unlocking my car and was successful. xD So, I now have a car back!

I got really sick on Saturday, right before I was supposed to go in to work. I'm surprised, because I usually don't get sick, and especially not out of the blue like this. So, my throat is still hurting like a mother. I was hoping to be better by tomorrow, but it doesn't seem like that is happening. I keep drinking a lot of soup and tea, so hopefully my poor throat will be better! And that way, I don't have to have as many voicecidentes.

I'm excited; I get to write an essay on anime for my Comp class. :D It's only 2 1/2 pages, so it should be pretty easy!

I know that this is short, but I'm in the middle of doing my Comp homework, so I'd better pay some attention to that.


I made a map for my user profile! xD; It shows where all of the visitors to my profile page hail from in this great world of ours. And... the computer game I bought my dad for Christmas has a create a character option for all of the games. My character has a monocle, which reminded me of Bradley. xD; Too giguely.

So, my parents went up to Cheyenne tonight to check out that car.

... No such luck. According to them, it drove well but already had 150,000 + miles on it. If it was even 2/3 of that, they would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Even though I'm really not surprised, I'm also kind of disappointed. After all, I was hoping to finally have a car back. They're going to keep looking... I hope I get one soon.

And to add insult to injury, they took the PT Cruiser up there. They could have taken the truck, but noooo. They just had to have the PT Cruiser. So they went over to Macy*s, took it from the parking lot, and didn't even have the courtesy to tell me that they had taken it. Even though I was warned that may happen, I still had to call my dad and ask him.

When I did that, he was all "Yeah, we took it. You're going to have to find your own ride home, k thx bai."

Luckily Nicole was willing to give me a ride home. I don't know who I could have gotten one from, otherwise. xD

So, our first day back at school was on Tuesday. I have Sociology Tuesdays and Thursdays, Music History II Mondays and Wednesdays, and Anthropology, Humanities and Comp Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So, again, school every day. But I don't mind- I think I'm going to enjoy this semester a lot more than the previous ones. It's mostly stuff that I love. <3

Humanities is the one I'm going to enjoy the most, I think. Beal is as giguely as ever- even though he wants us to call him Peter, I can't think of him as anything but Beal. xD When he was passing out the syllabus yesterday, he told us that it wasn't stapled because none of the copiers on campus were working. He told us, "So, those of you who get those pages out of order and don't have all three at the end will automatically fail the class." xD Same old Beal.

My Comp teacher didn't show up yesterday. xD We were waiting for 25 minutes before Kathy finally came into the classroom and was all "You can leave- he's not coming until Friday." So, that was fun.

Sociology is going to be really interesting, I think. My teacher is very amusing, and he seems like he knows quite a bit about the subject.

Music History was a bit of a letdown, since the teacher who was going to teach it originally was replaced by another one. Even though the new teacher seems awesome, I still wanted to have Debra as a teacher. xD That would have been totally awesome.

Anthropology seems all right, too. We do a lot of group discussions and journal entries, so it seems like it's going to be an easy class. My teacher is also really nice, so that helps.

In other news, I may be getting a new car. Foxxxy broke down a few weeks ago, and we still haven't towed her to my mechanic's. But my dad's been looking around for a new car for me, and may have found one up in Cheyenne. A co-worker owns it, and she's currently looking for a buyer. He and my mom are going to go up there tomorrow to look at (and hopefully buy) it.

I'm kind of glad that school has started again. That means that I can have a legitimate excuse for not taking on so many extra hours. xD I got paid almost $200 last week, since I worked over 35 hours. Today I picked up my check for $180/32 + hours. It'll be kind of nice not working so much.

Today was also my first appointment of the new semester with Britney. It was really great to see her again; she dyed her hair red. :D We had a really nice talk; I had forgotten how wonderful it is to actually have someone listen to what you really say and mean. I'm going to continue seeing her for a while; we already have ideas about what to work on and talk about during the semester. It seems like I've been improving a lot; a lot of the things I say and think now never would have even occured to me three or four months ago. Even though some of the things I thought would work out didn't, and I was getting some mixed messages... but that's okay. *shrug* I just need to focus my energies elsewhere, if that is the case.

I didn't watch as much anime as I had hoped over the break. I was hoping to try and watch all of "Ronin Warriors" and "Escaflowne," but I didn't even get to watch one episode. xD So that was kind of a letdown, but I was just too busy for it.

Speaking of busy, I haven't heard from Jacob since the 30th. Charity said that he's gotten really caught up in his job, and hasn't had the time to come up here. At least he's stopped calling me every day... xD But now Marco texts me endlessly.

I got another review for my Iketani x Mako x Ryousuke fic, and one for a Sailor Moon fic I wrote about six years ago recently. xD That surprised me, but it was a good surprise. I want to start writing more... I think my creativity is really starting to flow, now that I'm a little happier than I was a few months ago.

Speaking of writing, I really don't feel like doing that anymore. xD If I think of anything to add, I'll update it later. Right now, I'm like this = u_u;. So, more later!

I know this is late (but since this is the first time my computer's been working for at least three or four days), happy New Year, everyone! I hope it was safe, and that there was a lot of fun going on. :D

My New Year's weekend was all right... I spent yesterday working (10:00-7:00), and did the same today (10:30-7:30). Yesterday, after I finished work, I went and took a nap, then ate dinner at Old C's. :D After that, I decided to start writing my Scott x Jean story, and got about a handwritten page of that done. After that, I played "Resident Evil 4" for a few hours, then decided to go to bed. And then I worked. xD I've just about doubled my hours this week. I have Tuesday off, but then I work for the next eight straight. That includes inventory. :< But that's fine... I mean, I stay up that late anyway; I may as well be getting paid for it. xD

In other news, my car died while Shannon and I were hanging out tonight. xD We were at Pulcinella's getting me some pizza (I hadn't eaten since around 1 p.m. today). And then Foxxxy just died as we were turning out of the Hampton Inn. We were stranded for about 2 1/2 hours... I swear, my toes were NOT happy about that. Since I don't have to work tomorrow, my dad and I are going to go back and look at it. Hopefully we can get it to work... otherwise, I'm going to have to bum rides off someone, since my family doesn't have any money to get me a new car.

Hmmm... well, my New Year's resolutions are pretty much the same as they were last year:

-Try and lose a lot of weight (after all, I want to be down to around 120, eventually :D)
-Save money up for Fanime and NDK
-Try and get a computer for my room

Now that I have a VCR back, I've been playing games like crazy. I've been really into "RE 4," especially since I started my game over. It took me all of two days to get to where it took me over six months the first time I played it. xD I'm doing really well, and it's a lot of fun. Hopefully I can finish that soon and cross it off the list of games I need to play.

And in other random news, I found some Angus Macfadyen icons. xD That made me really happy. I <3 that man.
jupiterhalo: (Waiting for you)

So, it's 4:39 a.m. I have to be at work by 11, and I'm planning on getting up at 9 so I can be out the door by 9:30.

I just spend the last two and a half hours shoveling snow away from my car so I can use it. xD My back is so sore already~! It sucked, since there was a lot of ice mixed in with the snow, and that made it difficult to shovel it.

However, now I have my own car back (hopefully!). The good news about that:

-I can go out whenever I want
-I can get my paycheck deposited
-I can get the check my aunt sent me deposited (yay, money!)
-I can go buy my Secret Santa gift for work

So, hopefully all that hard labor will be worth it; that way, my parents won't throw a fit at me again like they did tonight. >_o
