Finally, the weekend is here! My plan of attack is to get caught up on Castle, bake cookies for Kira's party tomorrow night, homework, laundry, and sleep! I can't believe Midterms are next week...

Day 7 of this meme already? )
jupiterhalo: ([Parakiss] Cute Miwako)
Today is going to be a lazy day! I have homework to do, which I will accomplish sometime today. Shannon is coming over, and we are planning on watching Across the Universe and maybe playing some video games. We shall see!

Day two is under here... )

Not much has been going on in my life, yet I feel the need to post something. xD

It's hard to believe that January's almost gone. This month has gone by way too quickly. Work has been kind of weird-- some days, it's awesome; other days, it's just shit. Hopefully I have more awesome days in the future.

I've been talking a lot more with my sister, so that's been nice.

I'm also having a really good time with this guy Lovebug set me up with. He's a little younger than me, but he's really sweet and easy to get along with. We're having our third date(?) on Wednesday hopefully, so... yeah. Not bad for having just met him on the 10th.

I've been keeping up with my diet and fitness stuff religiously over the past few weeks, and it's paid off. I can fit into a smaller size! :D I'm at 16W right now, but I can wear 14W stuff. The 14W is the smallest plus size, so after that... I'll be in normal sizes. I don't think I've been in a normal size since my sophomore/junior year of high school. I'm probably going to cry when the day comes that I'm able to fit into a regular 18 or 16.

Taking the semester off has been pretty nice. I've been keeping track of all of the movies I've watched and the books I've read. So far, for January I have read 10 books and watched 6 movies. Not too shabby. In addition, Ana and I have been marathoning Ronin Warriors, which has been amazing.

Short post for tonight, but I'm trying to finish up laundry before I head to bed. :D All in all, January's been a pretty decent month.
jupiterhalo: ([Tangled] Yay!)
Last night was our annual New Year's Eve formal dinner and party. I was originally planning on going to just the dinner (and it took me forever to find a dress for the occasion), but Kira, Anna and Ana convinced me to go to the party, as well. Their argument was that it was such a waste to buy a dress and just go to dinner.

It felt really nice dressing up and feeling all feminine, since I never really get any opportunities to do that. Work is always dressy casual, so I end up wearing black pants and a nice shirt most days. But anyway, last night Anna and Andie ended up curling my hair, and Ana was kind enough to do my makeup for me (apparently I pull off the pinup eye look quite well). Shannon and I carpooled to Mt. Fuji's, which is where we had dinner. The service was fantastic compared to what we had at Suh's last year. I ended up sitting at Jake's end of the table again, which was funny. We didn't get out of the restaurant until close to 10:00, though.

After dinner it was on to the party. I spent most of it talking with Ana, Jake and Nic, since they were some of the only people I knew there. I felt kind of sad following them around like a lost puppy, but they didn't seem to mind it.

And of course, we celebrated the New Year with kisses. I got kissed three or four times, which I'm amazed by. This is the first time I've ever been kissed on New Year's, so that made me incredibly happy. I know that it's not really a big deal, but I'm still excited about it. I guess that I'm making up for lost time. The girl that I carpooled with wanted to leave right after midnight, so I had to take her home. That was a shame, since I did actually want to stay at the party and hang out, talk and dance. Oh well; next year will be my time, hopefully.

I did almost cry last night when I got home, due to the fact that this is the first New Year without my mother. But, I was able to get through it after a little bit.

I hope that everyone who did celebrate last night got home safe and sound.

Oh, 2010. How fast you flew by. I was talking with my boss before leaving work yesterday, and we both came to the conclusion that this is one of the fastest years that's gone by. Crazy.

I'm going to leave 2010 almost 30 pounds lighter than I started it, but with a much heavier heart. There were a lot of good times this year; so many that I probably won't be able to remember them all. I really enjoyed getting to know some of my friends a lot better (Kira, Anna, Jake <3), the Lady GaGa concert, finally finishing up my Associate's Degree (even though I won't technically graduate until the spring), work going well... and getting more responsibilities to take care of, losing almost 30 pounds since September, my sister and I spending more time together... and so many more good things.

I want to say a big thank you to the people who have supported me this year, especially over the past month. Kira, Ana, Shannon, and Anna, I don't know what I would have done without you. Thank you so much. <3

This is my New Year's Resolution: do my best each day in work, friendships, relationships, and personal things. That way, I won't live with any more regrets than I have now. And, to let the people that I care about know that I care about them. I thought that I would have a lot longer to do that with my mother, and I have to live with the fact that all of my chances with her are now gone. This new year (and every new year after it) is going to be tough, but I'm finally realizing that I have the strength to carry on. 2010 has taught me a lot about myself, even if they were harsh lessons.

Here's to 2011. :D

Wow. Hi there, LJ. Been a while. Over 2 1/2 months since I last posted anything on here.

A lot of stuff has happened since October 12th. I finished up all of the classes I need to get my AA, though I'm technically graduating in the spring. My birthday came and went in November, which was fun. Thanksgiving was also a nice time. December 3rd happened, along with December 8th. [livejournal.com profile] hyper_amychao's birthday, the Solstice Party, and Christmas also happened.

My birthday was a lot of fun this year. A bunch of my friends ended up going to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, then Pappadeaux for dinner. There ended up being about 12 of us altogether, so it was quite a big group. My sister's birthday was also on October 30th, so I ended up going to the party she had. I met her boyfriend for the first time, and a bunch of her friends from school.

[livejournal.com profile] hyper_amychao had her birthday on December 5th, which ended up being a lot more relaxed than mine. A few of us went to Old C's and had dinner, just chilling for the majority of it.

Christmas was nice this year. My dad, sister and I ended up going out to Brush Christmas Day, which was the first time I'd been back there since my grandmother passed away four or five years ago. The Solstice party was also a good time; we ended up watching really bad movies and having large amounts of Puppy Chow. <3

Nothing really notable in my acquisitions this year, but I did get a lot of books and movies. I also got some snow boots from my dad, which will come in handy when we do actually get snow here.

Okay, must get ready for work.

365- Life.

Today has been quite a good day, despite my sunburn getting to that really disgusting phase before blistering. xD

I had my six month cleaning/check-up at the dentist first thing this morning. Normally at these things I have to schedule at least two or three cavities to be filled, and have the hygienist yell at me for not flossing. But this time is probably the first time ever that I haven't had any cavities at all! I just have to floss, which I'm already aware of. That made me pretty happy.

My class was okay last night. It was also very boring, so I'm hoping that once we get into the actual weather stuff (instead of talking about things like density and pressure) it will be more interesting. I'm going to need to bring a snack or something to that class in order to stay awake. My teacher is also quite awkward, so we'll see how things pan out.

Nothing much has been going on, other than that. Just work, reading, catching up on Friends with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and stuff like that.
jupiterhalo: ([Misc] Worst date ever)
Yesterday was a busy day for me! I'm not really used to that. I went on a bike ride with my dad in the morning, and found a cookbook and a new spare comforter. Then I went down to LotP in the afternoon and got made up like a zombie, in order to walk around NewWest Fest and promote the zombie crawl that's happening on October 23rd. That was both fun and exhausting, even though I got a bad sunburn on my shoulders and back. xD A bunch of people thought I was actually injured, and one guy thought I had AIDS. In the evening, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] went shopping for new clothes and then went to Old C's with her dad.

Last night I had the worst trouble sleeping. I'd wake up every two to three hours on account of my sunburn hurting like a mofo. At about 4 I decided to just get up and go to the store since I needed things. I feel bad, since I woke Joe up when I was putting my stuff away in the freezer. xD But he doesn't work today, so it's not as bad as it could be.

School starts tomorrow, which will be nice. That way I can get it over with, instead of dreading it. Other than that, nothing has really been going on.

jupiterhalo: ([Supernatural] Screaming)
Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated. xD I'm thinking about getting a Facebook, simply because people seem to use that a lot more than LJ. And also so I can play games and waste my time that way. But we'll see if I do end up getting one or not.

Ummm, let's see! The 28th was the Lady Gaga concert at the Pepsi Center, which was in a word: awesome. I had a good time, my friends seemed like they had a good time, and it was great to just dance to some good pop music.

I started a diet on the 26th; I think it's going pretty well! It's one of those diets that make you eat five or six times a day, which is something I'm still struggling with. Normally I eat two meals a day. So I've pretty much cut out all of the snacks they tell you to eat, since I feel full pretty much all of the time. I've also forgotten to eat breakfast most of the days since I started, but hopefully I'll start to get into the habit of doing that. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] has been awesome in helping me with the diet; she's been cooking dinner for me and helping me keep on track. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] also hooked up the Wii Fit for me, so I'm going to try and get up early to use that for at least half an hour every morning.

Work has been one pain in the ass after another. There's so much drama going on at the office right now; it's been a challenge to muster up the energy to even face it every day. One of my coworkers is an idiot, but when everyone complains about her to our boss, we're suddenly "picking on her" and "ganging up on her." In my opinion, if a lot of people complain about this particular woman, shouldn't that show that something is obviously wrong with the way she works? My boss is sacrificing the office morale for the sake of one person, and it's pissing me off. I've decided I'm done with all of that stuff-- I'm going to go in, do my work, and go home; hopefully I'll be able to skirt a lot of the stuff that's going on.

Sheena is also having a party on the 7th, and I honestly don't want to go now after everything that's happened in the last week. But, I already agreed to go, and I'm hoping it won't be as bad as I think. We'll see how I feel on Saturday, though.

My sister is home from CU for about a week or so; we're going to go have lunch tomorrow. Hopefully things will be better between us now than they were on my birthday. xD We did manage to have a civilized conversation on Sunday, when I went over to my parent's home for breakfast before my dad and I took a bike ride.

School starts on the 23rd, which will be nice. I won't feel so lazy every day when I get home from work, as long as I have a class to look forward to. I'm only taking Meteorology and then I'll finally be done at Front Range, so I'm hoping that I'll do well.

Other than that, not much has been going on. Just replaying some old video games and getting through a few books in my stack.

Yesterday was pretty productive! I went to Book Lover's and traded in some books I had finished, eventually picking out 10 new ones for my reading pleasure. And I'm a little over halfway through The Last Legion. I've had that books for several years and hadn't read it, so I'm glad to finally be doing that.

Joe, Kira and I also saw Kick-Ass last night. I really enjoyed it! It was a fun flick, and I'll be sure to check out the sequel when it's released. I also watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog last night before bed. Neil Patrick Harris is so adorable.

Pick 20 movies/anime/video games/literary works and put their summaries from Better than it Sounds ( http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BetterThanItSounds ) and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

Everything under here! )
jupiterhalo: ([Clownana] Glare)
Goodbye April and hello May. Thank god for that. April just sucked as a month, so I'm hoping May will be better. I don't think that staying up for almost 24 hours on Thursday really helped, either.

Since I just spent the last few hours going through my iTunes and updating it, here's a meme all about music. xD

Search these words in your iTunes and write down the first song of the list that comes up.

Happy: "So Happy I Could Die" by Lady Gaga.
Love: "I Want to Know What Love Is" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Hate: "I Hate Myself For Loving You/Heat of the Moment" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Light: "Moonlight Shadow" by DJ Mystik.
Dark: "Fearless (250 and Dark Stars)" by Falling Up.
Good: "Damn You Look Good and I'm Drunk" by Cobra Starship.
Bad: "Bad Company" by Bad Company.
Hello: "Hello" by Evanescence.
Bye: "Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt.
Up: "Waking Up" By Julien-K.
Down: "The Final Countdown" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.

I have a ton of music in my library; these songs are the first ones that showed up that I actually have checked.
jupiterhalo: ([Paradise Kiss] Whee!Miwako)
Last night was the BBQ for Joe's birthday. It was pretty fun! I ended up staying over until about midnight, which is probably the longest I've stayed at any of our parties ever. xD I gave Joe his gift from Ana, Nic and me; he really seemed to like the books.

I bought some new sheets and some clothes yesterday afternoon. I'm really starting to appreciate Ross a lot. xD They have cheap stuff, and most of it is good quality. I found Hydraulic jeans there for $13.00 and queen sized jersey knit sheets for $20.00.

I've spent the last few hours doing stuff on XBox Live; most of it has been downloading the new RE5 stuff that came out. Now I need to finish up laundry, head to LotP and get a wig, then over to the library to return a book. After that, it may be food time.
jupiterhalo: ([Resident Evil] Smiling Chris)
Happy birthday, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]! Sorry that this is so short, but I need to head to work. :D Hopefully you do something fun!
jupiterhalo: ([Resident Evil] Cute Jill)
Not a lot has been going on lately! Just school and work, for the most part. xD Oh, and trying to get ready for Wasabi, which is next week. Craaaazy. It'll be nice to get away from Fort Collins for a while, even though I'm not too excited about the convention itself. Since I never do anything related to the con anyway, it's just a chance for me to do what I feel like. I am looking forward to seeing the band play, though. That'll probably be the highlight of the weekend.

I'm trying not to sweat the small stuff. I think I've been letting too many small things bother me lately, and it's had an impact on my health, especially my sleep. I read something yesterday and it made me ridiculously happy. xD Kind of sad that the little things can do that, but... well, I think that I just need to take those feelings when I get them, since I don't get them too often.

Oh, yeah. I think it's sad that in order to get up at 6:45, I need to wake up at 5:00. Which is what I did this morning. Sob.

So, on to the fandom notes! xD

The CW has chosen to renew Supernatural for another season, which will be the last one. Of course, I'm happy that we fans get another season, as I'm not ready to part with the show yet. But, really... where can you go after this season ends? Especially if the writers aren't going to stretch the apocalypse out into season six? I've heard that they want to go back to the feel and style of season one. But, I personally think that would be kind of a letdown after the epic!storylines we've had for the last few seasons. Oh well. I'll watch the beginning of season six and decide from there.

Resident Evil. Oh man, I spend way too much money for this game franchise. xD First, I needed to buy a wireless adapter for my 360, since I couldn't connect the Ethernet cable to the modem/router. That cost $100.00 alone. Then I had to buy a gold membership for my 360 account, and 1000 points to download the new content that was released. So, that's another $21.00 right there. But it was so worth it. To me, the story of Resident Evil is the story of Chris and Jill, so I was happy to play as them again. More new content should be coming out soon, which will be awesome. And "Lost in Nightmares" had the Itchy Tasty file! xD A truncated version, yes, but... still. So awesome.

I think that's everything. Time to go take a shower and get ready for work.
jupiterhalo: ([Supernatural] Four score and...)
Been a pretty busy couple of weeks! :D

School is in full swing by now. I need to go to the Vidiot sometime soon and pick out a few movies to watch for my class. One of the assignments my teacher gave us is to watch a movie set in the Middle Ages and do a "History or Hollywood" type assignment with it. I think I've also picked out a person to do my first biography on, which is due in less than two weeks. I've also found that eating something before class will help me not fall asleep. xD

Let's see... I started my second job cleaning on Friday. It's not very hard; there's just a lot to do and it's very tedious. However, it's an extra $175 a month that will go right into my savings. :D And I only have to do it once every two weeks. It should get easier as time goes on.

I hung out with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] on Friday. That was really fun, as I needed to unwind after two and half hours of straight cleaning. We got dinner and watched Zombieland. I liked it a lot, and I'm happy that they're going to make a sequel to it. Then, on Saturday, I went to see a movie with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. We saw When in Rome, which was very cute. And funny, too, without being really stupid. That unfortunately overlapped with Shaun's birthday party, but I don't think he's too upset about me not being there.

I've also finally beaten Resident Evil 5, which is kind of sad that it took me this long to beat it. Having my own 360 helped a lot with that, though. I'm in the process of replaying it, and can hopefully unlock a better alternate costume for Chris than his stupid Safari zebra outfit.

I headed to the library and a few stores today. Got a lot of books at the library, including the rest of the Tales of the Otori series and a few books on World War II, in addition to the books I got for my biography project. I also found a Jensen Ackles movie for $3.00 while I was out shopping. It sounds really lame, but... for three bucks, I couldn't resist.

Hmmm... yeah, I thought I had more to say, but I think that's it.
jupiterhalo: ([Parakiss] Cute Miwako)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Chocolate, no question. xD While I can't live without my mobile phone, I'd definitely be okay if I didn't have chocolate again for the rest of my life.

Still in the process of moving. I'm pretty far along in it, though. The only things left in my room are the pieces of furniture I'm going to donate or try and sell. On Sunday, my dad and I moved pretty much everything else in my room, and some of the stuff in the living room, to my brand new storage unit. Of course, I wanted to be completely moved out by now, but... hey. At least I'm farther along than I had expected.

In other news, I'm sick again. Wtfuck. I started feeling bad on Sunday, and I don't think moving furniture all day helped any. I left work early yesterday to try and rest for a bit; I'm so glad that I have an awesome and understanding boss. <3

I also went to see The Princess and the Frog with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] Tuesday night. It was just as cute the second time! I already want to see it again. Maybe I will, after I finish getting everything moved. :|

When I went to go pick up [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] for the movie, her brother had his gift for me. I wasn't expecting anything from him, so it was quite the surprise! According to her, he was all nervous and stuff about me coming over and worried about his appearance. xD Little things like that make me believe that I still could have a chance with him, if he ever becomes single again. Of course, I'm probably just dreaming, but... it's nice to know that I can still have a romantic interest in someone, especially after all of these years.

Since I probably won't update again until after Christmas, happy holidays to those who celebrate it! It started snowing in Colorado last night and didn't let up until about five or six hours ago, so we're going to enjoy a white Christmas this year.



Thanks to [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] for the lovely sign!
jupiterhalo: ([Resident Evil] Chris' blood)
Today was really productive!

I hung out with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] after I finished work. :D After grabbing dinner at Noodles, we hit a few places to find some holiday gifts. I got my sister one of the things I was hoping to get her, so I can almost cross her off my list.

I've also been busy packing. My room is completely packed, save my clothes and alarm clock... things like that. Now I need to start on the living room, which I'm not looking forward to.

I'm planning on seeing The Princess and the Frog tomorrow, which I'm excited for. :D I've been waiting months for it to come out. Then on Saturday I'm taking Doodles to the vet, finishing up holiday shopping (hopefully) and seeing Fug's stupid band play. On Sunday is the Solstice party.

I don't know how my weekends keep getting so busy.
jupiterhalo: ([Angel Sancuary] Reminiscence)
So, I went and took Doodles to the vet today. She needed to have a vaccination, a general exam and a fecal test. She seems to be fine for the most part, but she does have an eye AND ear(s) infection. Poor baby. It's bad enough having one; I can't imagine having an infection in both my ears and my eye at the same time. Giving her the medicine for this is incredibly painful for all parties involved, and she's totally mad at both me and [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] right now. xD

Because of the extra medication and stuff, the bill for her visit ended up being almost $160. And I have to take her back in two weeks so they can make sure she's doing okay. :| Having a pet isn't cheap, man.

Speaking of money, I was productive and did more of my holiday shopping! I finished up my mother, Ana, and Nic, and started on Gerardo. So, that just leaves him, my dad, my sister, Shannon, Joe, Kira, and my Secret Santa to shop for. :D I'm definitely proud of myself. We'll see how much money I have left after I finish everything, though.

Oh, that reminds me! [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], I went ahead and authorized the transfer yesterday, I think... either yesterday or Thursday. According to PayPal, I should have the money in there by the 7th. So, I'll transfer it as soon as it shows up, okay? <3

It's been a long day, so I think it's bedtime.
jupiterhalo: ([Star Wars] Candy...)
Happy birthday, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]! I'd give you some fancy lettering or something, but I have no clue how to do it. xD
jupiterhalo: ([Resident Evil] Chibi Leon)
I haven't really updated in a long time. D: So, in case anyone's interested... here you go!

My birthday's come and gone, and it was mostly fun. I had a dinner with my friends on the 6th, since I was going to be in Boulder on my actual birthday. Everyone seemed to have a good time. :D Gerardo, Nic, Shannon, Kira, Jackie and myself ended up staying until Old C's closed because we were having fun talking to each other.

I went to see Regina Spektor with my sister on my birthday, and that was mostly fun. We did get into a fight early on in the night, however, and that made everything after that kind of awkward. It was over the stupidest thing, too, but... oh well.

School-wise. I ended up dropping Astronomy, since I couldn't learn anything from my online class. Which means I'm not graduating this semester. Instead, I'm going to take Meteorology and graduate in the spring (hopefully). Now we're on Thanksgiving break, which will be incredibly welcome.

I got Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles on Wednesday, but couldn't start playing it until Thursday night. I'm really happy that they were able to get back a lot of the actors to play their characters again, especially Leon's and Claire's. I mean, Alyson is the only one to have played Claire in English, so it would have been awkward to hear anyone else. I beat it last night, so now I'm going through and trying to find all of the files I missed the first time around.

Supernatural is going to kill me. :| No new episodes until January 21st? Augh! This last one ended so memorably, too. I don't know what I'm going to do if the CW does end up renewing it for a sixth season. Where can they possibly go from what's been going on in season five?

Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." I can't stop listening to it. :|

Okay, I think that's everything. And have a meme, courtesy of [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]! :D
