148- Home.

Yay, I'm finally home. :D

Liz and I woke up at about 9:45, did some last minute packing and stuff, loaded up the PT Cruiser with my stuff and about 11 of her boxes, and off we went to Starbucks to get some chai tea before I dropped her off at work.

Once that happened, I went and got gas, then found my way back to I-70 (after missing the turn once xD). I considered stopping in Parachute, but decided against it. I just drove straight through again, and it took me about the same amount of time to get home as it did to get to Grand Junction, so that was cool. ^_^

Finally made it back home at 4:45, and the first place I went to (even before going home) was Barnes and Noble. They had volumes 4 and 5 of "FAKE," so I snagged those immediately. T_T You have no idea how many places I looked for those stupid books when I was in Grand Junction. xD Then I went over to Best Buy... and they have the special edition of "Gundam SEED Destiny" volume 7! So that made me happy... until I looked at the price. $35 for the DVD and a box. So I forced myself to wait.

So, I got a lot of stuff when I was over on the Western Slope! I'm very satisfied with everything. In the end, here's the loot I ended up with:

~"Soul Calibur III" for the PS2
~Volumes 4 and 5 of "Angel Sanctuary"
~"Gundam SEED" volume 4 DVD

Not quite as much as I had expected, but definitely good stuff. And I still have about $30 left from my travel money, too. ^_^ As a bonus, I came home to one of my tax refund checks, as well~ AND I get paid tomorrow. xD So, I'll have plenty of money for whatever comes... like when Liz comes here on Sunday and stuff. That'll be chill.

Dude, omg! Speaking of work... there have been, like, CRAZY developments at work while I was gone. First off, they changed the clocking system so we have to clock in at the registers in our department, instead of at the time clock. T_T What a hesu and a half, even though I knew about that before I left.

Second, MaryAnn got demoted! O_O I have no idea what happened, but yeah... apparently she got kicked down from Merchandising manager to Jewelry manager. Sara got put in MaryAnn's position, I guess, and Andrea is now the RTW manager.

All I can say is "WTF?!" Sheesh, you leave for, like, five days and everything goes berserk on you. I don't want Andrea to be my manager... T_T I like Sara! I don't like Andrea! Although, if Andrea's manager she may let Shannon and me work together more. xD But, still! To Andrea I say: DO NOT WANT!

...Anyway. I'm exhausted. xD It's been a very long day, and it will be nice to sleep in a bed again. Although, I do want to play more "RE 4" and "SC III"...
jupiterhalo: (Your presence still lingers here)
Whooo, today was so busy. xD

We didn't go to bed until around 3:30 or 4 this morning, and I woke up at 11. However, I didn't get up until around 11:45... heehee, I was being lazy. I took a HOT SHAAR, with unlimited hot water. That was nice. And then it was off to shop!

...Or so we thought. xD Since Liz had gotten paid on Friday, we went to one of the Wells Fargos here in Grand Junction to see if they could cash her check. After we were refused, we went back to the dorm and had Dana, one of Liz's podmates, come with us to another Wells Fargo to get the check cashed in her name. After that, we decided to treat Dana to Starbucks as a way of saying "thank you." But first we needed to get the PT Cruiser gas. The gas station we went to had unleaded at $3.11 a gallon. That's the least expensive price for gas I've seen in quite a long time. xD

Now it was time to shop. First, we went to this Pagan store in Grand Junction called Heart of the Dragon. I looked around and didn't really find anything, but I did find Liz her late birthday present. It was a cool store, and I hadn't been in a store like that in such a long time. ^_^

After that, we hit the mall. We stopped in soooo many different stores, including: Bath and Body Works, FYE, Hot Topic, this junior clothing store called DEB, and Jo-Ann's, where we picked up material for comfort blankets. I bought some more chapstick when we were at Bath and Body Works... they were having this sale where they were 3 for $15. I broke down and bought 3, since I always seem to lose them. xD At FYE I found a "Gundam SEED" DVD that I'd been looking for forever, and it was only $15 as well~!

After we finished at the mall, we went over to Best Buy. There were a few things I wanted to get there... but their anime section is so much smaller than the one in Fort Collins. I figured that if I wanted anything, I should probably just wait until I got home to go looking. Apparently "Peach Girl" has been licensed and has already been released! That kind of shocked me. They also had "X-Men: Evolution" season 3 for sale, as well as the complete "Scrapped Princess" anime. I resisted getting them, though.

Next came Barnes and Noble, but again... they didn't have as much as FoCo. So, I waited. Then after a trip to Michael's and another stop at Border's, we finally finished up and ate dinner at this Mexican restaurant called Panchero's. They make their own tortillas fresh, so that was really good. ^_^ The steak they have was delicious. Then after an ice cream stop at Coldstone, we finally came back to the dorm.

Right when we settled in, Caleb called and we decided to meet for Italian sodas. Eventually, the whole group showed up, and we all hung out. There was this thing called CramJam going on, so we went and got some free food and stuff. :D

Once we had finished eating, this guy named Justin invited us to his dorm room so we could play "Soul Calibur III." It was a lot of fun, but this guy named Cole really pissed me off. He is in the room next to Justin's, and he kind of invited himself in and was watching Liz and me play the game. Since it was my first time, I was just kind of button-mashing and seeing what exactly I could do with everything. After a few minutes he was like "You know, what you're doing right now would be illegal in a tournament." It's like "Whoop de doo, I could care less." So I replied "Well, I guess it's good that we aren't in a tournament, isn't it?" ~_~ Just... ugh. He pissed me off for the rest of the night. This one guy named Greg was play-flirting with me, though, so that cheered me up.

Now we're settled back in Liz's dorm, which is where I'm assuming we're going to stay for the rest of the night. All I want is some peace and quiet, since Cole was being a bastard, Gideon is confusing the hell out of me... The plan for tomorrow is to either go see the Monument or Bang's Canyon, then make another trip to Heart of the Dragon with Caleb. After that, Jon and Patrick wanted to hang out for a while, so I'm supposing we're going to do that. Sheesh, people in Grand Junction sure keep you busy.

Well, here I am, all alone while Liz is at work. :3

It's kind of cool hanging out here in the pod by myself. xD She was nice enough to let me use her laptop, so I'm going around checking all of the usual sites. I'll be by myself until she gets off work at 7, and then I'm not quite sure what we're going to do.

But, yeah. I didn't get to bed until after 3 this morning, as Liz and I were talking about hamsters. xD; It was very giguely. I woke up a few times during the night, but I actually slept quite well, considering that I'm sleeping on the floor. I woke up at 11, saw that Muss had texted me, and tried to get Liz up a few times. I can see why she always wants me to call her and wake her up, because she just doesn't like to get up at all. But, she eventually got up at... 11:50 or something like that.

Yesterday, we went to Border's~! It was so cool... they had so much manga. e_e I haven't bought manga in such a long time, so I went crazy. I bought volumes four and five of "Angel Sanctuary," and some other stuff as well. :D It was nice to shop for books.

And on a totally unrelated subject, I looked at my final grades a few days ago. I ended up with an A in Humanities, a B in Music History, an A in Sociology, a B in Anthropology, and an A in Comp. So, definitely not a bad semester. :D I really enjoyed it.

I think tomorrow we're going to go shopping and do some sight-seeing. The cards yesterday said we were going to do a lot of exploring, so I'm looking forward to that. I really want to go to Heart of the Dragon; it sounds like such an awesome store. But today, I think we're just going to chill.

And I think I may actually go take a nap. e_e; I'm still kind of tired... or I'll read some of my new books! :D We shall see.

Wheee, finally in Grand Junction~!

I didn't leave Fort Collins until after 1, got stuck in a traffic jam outside of Longmont and almost had a heart attack driving over the Continental Divide. But I eventually arrived in Grand Junction at around 6:15. Went over to Michael's and got my dad's birthday present, then went to Border's and bought a few books. Then Liz and I ate at Pizza Hut, then went and bought some snacks. So, with the $100 that was in my wallet at the start, I am now down to $14. xD; But that's okay... I still have a lot in my suitcase.

I met some of Liz's friends at Michael's. Eric, Zephyr and Lisa, I believe. They seemed really nice. And I also met one of her podmates, Dana (?). It turns out she's from Loveland, so it was nice to talk with someone who kind of knows the area around Fort Collins/Loveland. Everyone I've met so far seems really, really nice. I think I'm going to have a wonderful stay here.

Liz and I just finished reading some tarot cards, which was fun. xD I grilled her endlessly about what's going on between me and "him," and now I at least feel a little better about it. He wants me to take pictures of myself while I'm here, and send him "hot springs vibes." Naturally I thought of him when I passed Glenwood.

At least my shoulders don't hurt anymore. xD; But yeah, just letting everyone know that I made it here safely and have been having fun~!
jupiterhalo: (Made in Heaven)
xD I think that quote from "Red vs. Blue" sums it up perfectly. My last day of the semester was today. I was intensely relieved, yet sad at the same time. I've gotten to know a lot of really nice people over the semester, especially in my Humanities, Comp and Anthropology classes.

But I guess we're going to see each other again! It seems like David and I are going to go bowling sometime this week, when he calls me. xD And Carter is definitely going to try and see me around more often; when I was talking to him before Comp he even called me "babe." *laughs* And Harlan and I are going to have a study group going on in the fall for Astronomy, it seems. I already know of two of my grades, and I'm sure the rest are going to be more of the same. In Humanities, I got an A (big surprise there) and in Comp I got an A as well. :D I'm feeling pretty confident about my other classes, though. I'll be able to see by Thursday.

So, anyway, here's a summary of my classes for the fall (I may change it, though, as Garrett wants me to take World Music in the fall as well xD):

Mondays and Wednesdays: Astronomy I at 9:00 a.m., then Comp II at 12:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: Classical Mythology at 1:00 p.m.
Thursdays: Comparative Religions at 9:00 a.m., then Classical Mythology at 1:00 p.m.
Fridays: Comp II at 12:00 p.m.

Not a bad schedule if you ask me. It's going to suck getting up that early, but I'd rather do that and be done by 1 or 2 than to be in school until 4 or 5.

I'm looking forward to summer as well. :D Of course, I'll probably end up working a lot. Like tomorrow. My first day off and I already have an extra shift. xD Tomorrow I'm also going to go and try and sell my books back. I know they won't take some of them. Carter told me they aren't taking one of the Anthro books, and a kid from my Comp class said that they weren't taking our textbook, either. T_T But I'll try and sell as many as I can, and then maybe sell the rest on Amazon. Hopefully they'll give me a lot of moolah, so I can have a little extra for when I go to Grand Junction this weekend. I know I probably won't need as much as I think, but I want to try and get gifts for everyone while I'm there.

And now, since I finished my soup, I had better go get Tina-chan some food as well. T_T She is such a pig. But it's nice to not have stress from school anymore. This semester was actually really fun, looking back on it.

x0 It is going to be such a relief when I go to Grand Junction in a few weeks. I cannot wait to get away from school and all of this stress people have been placing on me.
jupiterhalo: (Ran <3)
Wow, two entries in one night. I guess this is what happens when you have a ton of homework to do and don't want to do it. xD

I think I want to try and take a roadtrip sometime soon.

As much as I love Fort Collins, I never get out of here. The farthest I seem to go is Bellvue... like, 5 miles away.

So, I want to travel and see some part of the country without my parents along with me. Even if Fanime falls through, I think I'd like to go to California for a few days... go to the beach, visit San Francisco... if I was still friends with Pat, I'd take a trip up to Portland and see him.

Or maybe Sedona. I don't know... I'd just like to go somewhere new; somewhere exciting. Just get out of FoCo for a few days. Even Glenwood Springs would be fine with me.

Maybe over Spring Break. Or after school ends (if I don't take summer school). I'm just in the planning stages right now. We'll see what develops, I guess.

And I had a kinda-sorta Macy*s dream Saturday morning. I really don't remember what happened, just that Shannon, Sara, Nicole and Ana were all involved. And Sara and Nicole were helping me through some sort of crisis... I don't know. xD All I know is that I woke up feeling very, very depressed. But happy that a few of my co-workers seemed to care a lot about my well-being, even if it was only a dream.

But, yeah. Enough about that.

I really don't like Anthropology journal entries. ~_~
