Last night, I watched the 2011 version of The Thing with my dad. It was pretty good! I still think the 1950's version is the best, and this one definitely beat out Carpenter's version.

On to this 30 day thing, so I can go to bed at 10:30 like the old woman I am...

I am doing pretty good so far... )

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.

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.

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: ([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.

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: ([RvB] Perfectly sane)
I definitely don't feel like I should be up this early on a Saturday. xD Well, it's not THAT early... but early for me. I use my weekends to sleep in, damn it!

However, I have too much to do today, and I don't know how I'll find the time to do all of it. On the agenda today, is :

-Packing
-Looking at a possible storage unit
-Taking Doodles to the vet
-Finishing up shopping (for the most part)
-Going to the Duke and watching Bob and his stupid band
-Maybe a trip to Goodwill to drop off all of the clothes and stuff we're getting rid of

Anyway, I saw The Princess and the Frog last night. Omfg it was so cute. xD I hate everything that Disney's done in the last few years, but I love their fairy tale movies. I think this and Enchanted have been the only two movies I've enjoyed in a long time. I think I'm in the minority, but I hate Pixar. :| As a result, I try to avoid all of their movies if I can. But yeah, I enjoyed it a lot last night. The theater was completely empty except for a few other girls and me. It sounds like [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I are going to see it sometime next week, as well.

I also checked to see if my grades for the semester had been posted yet. They were. All A's, baby! Well, except for the science class I withdrew from. xD I haven't had a 4.0 in forever. I'm still pretty psyched about that.

Ugh. Okay. Time to get dressed and start moving some of these boxes over to my parent's place, before I go meet that lady to look at the storage unit.

EDIT:

Oh yeah! Here's my letter to Santa, before I forget.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In May I signed my organ donor card (28 points). Last Thursday I donated bone marrow to [livejournal.com profile] sorcererhuntres in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last Wednesday I helped [livejournal.com profile] kazeoto across the street (6 points). Last Sunday I punched [livejournal.com profile] jamochalicious in the arm (-10 points). In September I gave [livejournal.com profile] ras_algethi a life-saving blood transfusion (50 points).

Overall, I've been nice (374 points). For Christmas I deserve an XBox 360!

Sincerely,
jupiterhalo

Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:


Man. I want a 360 for Christmas. xD
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.

314- Meme.

Saw the Harry Potter movie again tonight. It was definitely better the second time around. 8D I'm getting an urge to read the sixth and seventh books again, and then read the rest of the series for the first time.

Real update is coming soon; I just don't feel very chatty at the moment. So, here! Have a piping hot meme, fresh from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]'s journal! :D

...Okay, that sounded really pedo.

Ship meme! Reply with a fandom and I'll fill this out for it.

Sorry for the double post, guys! 8D

But this is why I was making my previous LJ post in the first place. xD Does anyone want to go see that movie Gamer with me? I think it looks badass... here's a link to the trailer if you haven't seen it yet.

Saw new HP flick.
Went to bed late and slept in.
Shitty work is shit.

xD That's pretty much how my day went.

But yay, I met my goal of 300 posts about nine days before my deadline.

I'm tired. I think I may go to bed... or go to the store.
jupiterhalo: (RE5 Chris)
Last night, I went to see Star Trek with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. I hadn't wanted to see it since it came out, since I'm not really into the whole live action sci-fi stuff. However, I will say that I was pretty impressed by it! I probably won't see it again in theaters, unless I go with another group, but I'll probably end up watching it on DVD once or twice. I thought that the reboot was really well done.

I also went to see Plasmacrash with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] on Friday! I think they get better every time I see them. Joe only played three songs of their set, since he's still not feeling well, but those three songs he played with them sounded the best. Elite was a really awesome band, too, even though I was only able to stay for about two songs of their set. I want to see them again, all the way through.

Work was a total pain in the ass last week. We had Monday off, so that caused a lot of our work to pile up. I ended up working straight through, from 8-4 (and 7-almost 4:30 on Friday) without taking a lunch and just going home early in order to try and catch up from the weekend. And this next week is going to be even crazier, since I have to help one of my coworkers with one of her projects... and school also starts on Tuesday.

But! On a good note... I'm going to start riding my bike to work on the days that I don't have school, and I'm going to try and not drive as much as possible. So, if I need to go somewhere and it's within biking distance of the apartment, then I'm going to bike. I'm also going to buy a new iPod in June, since my old one isn't working. I'm also going to pay off my small bill and get that out of the way, before I start working on my loan. Hopefully, if I can stick to the budget that I've made for myself, I'll have my loan paid off by November/December. Then it's to work on my credit card debt.

This weekend isn't long enough! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow. At least payday is on Wednesday. :D

And I tag... whomever wants to do this. :D

Anyway! Not too much has been going on lately. Work has been slow, although I spent most of yesterday morning fixing Bobbie's mistakes from Friday. The RP front is slowly starting to get busy... I'm working on my app for [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], and I'm going to reserve a character for Salkia when I get finished with my Shadow app. I don't have to worry about [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] anymore, even though that makes me feel kind of depressed. I still want to RP Arashi somewhere; I just need to find a game that seems right for him.

I got talked into seeing the Star Trek movie by Shannon. xD While I'm not a fan of the show or anything, I'll just take it as it is.

Hmmm... I thought that I had more to update about, but I guess not. Oh! Except for Supernatural. The season finale was awesome, although not as epic as I had imagined it. This next season should be great. :D Speaking of, much love for my new Supernatural moodtheme.
jupiterhalo: (Dean Winchester)
So, I saw the Dragonball movie last night with a few of my friends. xD It actually wasn't as bad as I had expected it to be! I really liked Bulma (who was played by Emmy Rossum... wtf) and Yamcha. Goku was pretty bad, and I was definitely amused to see Chow-Yun Fat as Master Roshi. I probably won't own it, but I'd likely see it again if I had the chance. The new Harry Potter trailer was also playing before the movie, and that was awesome. I can't wait for July. x3

Tonight, Shannon, Jason, Joe and I are also going to this concert called Video Games Live. The Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra is going to be performing orchestral pieces from different video games. That is going to be so kickass! I hope that they something from the Resident Evil series, but something tells me that's not going to happen.

The weather here has been so odd lately. It was nice for the first half of the week, until Thursday. It started raining this really cold rain, and by Friday it had turned into this really weird slushy rain/snow. That stopped yesterday, but it was still really cold and wet. Today, it's all sunshine and warmth. Wtf, Colorado weather? xD

I bought a few new books yesterday. I finished one, and am about a third of the way through my other one. However, I can't read any more of it until I get through Parakiss and work on my Arashi application for [livejournal.com profile] clairbourn. xo Ana and I have been talking about RP business, and that's really helping me get my spark back for roleplaying.

I'm hungry. I should go get some food and then work on that, before we leave for the concert.

My username comes from the pen name I thought up when I first started writing fanfiction and things online. It comes from one of my favorite Sailor Senshi (Jupiter) with my favorite Ronin Warrior (Halo). I've been using this name for pretty much everything since I was in the 7th grade. xD

Anyway, Jessie and I went to have a few drinks tonight at Elliot's, which was fun. I had my usual Very Foo Foo, and then something called a Tahitian Fantasy or something like that. It was made with rum, orange juice and pineapples, so it was very delicious. <3 It was cool hanging out with her and talking, since we've rarely gotten the chance to do that since she moved here. :D I hope that we can do it more often.

I've been rewatching Young Hercules over the past week, and I forgot just what an awesome show it is. xD While it has its corny moments, it has reaffirmed my love for Ryan Gosling (as seen in my new icon).

I'm also quite excited for March. Watchmen comes out next Friday, and I am so eager to see JDM sex up the screen. @o@ It's going to be an awesome movie. And Resident Evil 5 is released on Friday the 13th! This is probably the first game I've really anticipated coming out. Not to mention that Capcom has a totally wicked viral campaign for the game, including live-action trailers/short movies. The guy who plays Chris in these live-action promotions is so sexy. I would totally be all over him, if I ever met him or someone like him in real life. xDD

Speaking of men, they are such freaks. At least most of the ones around here... >_>;

I'm glad that I'm feeling a bit more like myself. I've been a bit unhappy for the last few days, but today I was able to mellow out a bit and have a mostly good day. I haven't been sleeping very well lately, which has probably added to it. In fact, I stayed up until 2:30/3 last night because I couldn't sleep. So, hopefully my mood swing (or whatever it is) will go away during the weekend.

I'm sad that my dad and I aren't going to lunch tomorrow, but we can always catch up next Friday. :D

Okay, it should probably be bedtime now... or an attempted bedtime.

Edit: I totally forgot two more reasons why March is going to rock! Firstly, Supernatural is going to come back with new episodes on March 12th! @o@ Dean torturing people! Sam using his powers... again! More Ruby! To the last one I say, "Ewwwww..." xD

And secondly, Sonic and the Black Knight is released! Shadow in armor, with a sword, as Sir Lancelot... that's probably going to be one of the most awesome things I've ever seen. Too bad Amy isn't Guinevere, as that would totally make me support one of my OTPs even more. xD
jupiterhalo: (Default)
This weekend was actually really productive!

I watched some movies and cleaned up a lot of my room, went supply shopping for work and bought some more stuff for my desk at home, and rearranged some of the books on my shelves. I need to get a shoe rack for my door, however.

I also finished Acheron in about... four or five days. :D That's not too bad, considering how little time I had to read. I felt like going to the library today and getting some more books, but I decided to check out the new Super Target and look for a new messenger bag. I didn't find anything there, nor at TJMaxx or Ross, so I'm going to look when I go to Denver the weekend before school starts. Hopefully I can find something at Flatirons or something.

I still have a ton of laundry to do, and more cleaning. >_> Plus, training all day tomorrow. At least I've been getting a chance to sleep in a little! I could definitely get used to that.

Edit: Curses! Why can't I lose weight? >_> I just weighed myself, and I weigh even more than I did the last time I checked! Wtf! I'm trying to cut back on meals and eating more soup and stuff, as well as healthier meals... so what gives? Stupid body. I wish I was thin.
jupiterhalo: (In her own way)
So, I spent part of my day beating Final Fantasy IX. :D I'm so happy! This is only the second FF game I've played and beaten, so I'm incredibly proud of myself. And I did it with relatively weak characters; I think my highest level character was Vivi, and he was only about level 57 or 58. And the ending made me tear up so badly! I wasn't all and out bawling, like I always do to VIII's ending, but I was really close. xD

So, now I just need to replay VIII, since I'm going to be picking up Laguna. I already made Steiner's journal and had him request to join Ares. Now I'm just waiting for him to be accepted.

And I have no idea why, but I've been on a real Disney kick today. It started with watching clips from Enchanted on YouTube, which led me to find a really well done music video with clips of Sleeping Beauty done to Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life." Kind of a weird combination, but it fit perfectly. xD So I ended up pulling out my DVD of Sleeping Beauty and watched it while I ate dinner.

Bleh, I can't believe that it's already August. That means that I won't be able to spend as many of my days playing video games and watching old movies, when school (once it starts) and work will be taking up all of my time. >_> At least I have Fridays relatively easy.... I don't have class, so that means I just work. :D But even that may be changing, so I don't know. I'll just have to see what happens.

I really want to go travel or something before school starts again, but I don't really have the money to do it. Maybe one weekend I can borrow the car and head down to Denver and shop for a while. That would be fun.

And my room is still messy, even though I've been moved back in for at least a month. xD I need to start cleaning it. I'll do that either tonight or tomorrow.
jupiterhalo: (Weatherby)
So, movie and dinner night was really fun! xD We ended up watching Wild Hogs, which is actually a really hilarious movie. And dinner was fantastic; Debbie's husband grilled chicken and stuff for us. All in all, it was a really awesome time. I hope that we can do it again soon... it sounded like Sheena wanted to get everyone together to go see Sex and the City. While I already saw the movie, I think it would be nice to see it with another group of ladies. xD It was also really fun to be able to talk with everyone without interruption; everyone is so hilarious!

Bawwww, I'm so tired. I feel like watching a little bit of X-Men, so I think I'm going to do that before heading off to bed.
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
