I think my icon perfectly sums up my mood at the moment.

The Friends of the Library had their annual book sale this weekend. Today, from 4 to 6 p.m., they had the $5.00 bag sale. I dragged [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] there, since we were already hanging out. xD I got a ton of books, including a cookbook and some ~romance~ novels. Overall, I was quite pleased.

[Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I were there for more than one reason, however. We've decided to... read Twilight. I, for one, am curious to see what the big deal is about, and if they do actually suck as much as people say they do.

The book sale didn't have any copies, so we got two copies of the first book from the library. We've already made it through the first two chapters, and right now I want to punch Bella in the face. She reminds me so much of a Mary Sue: all of the boys love her, everyone wants to talk to her and be her friend, and she's way too stuck up about how smart she is. She is also too whiny, and the dialogue in these first two chapters is so bad. Hopefully we can make it through the first book. xD

Work has been busy; school has been "meh." I need to start thinking about applying to CSU, even though there are so many things I need to do at Front Range first.


On the dating front- I've gone out on at least four (I think) coffee dates since I started doing the LoveBug thing. That's four more dates than I've had in the past year and a half. Too bad I haven't liked any of the guys I've been matched with. No chemistry whatsoever, and some of them have been jerks. Hopefully someone will come along that I'll actually feel something with.

On the plus side, I've lost a little over 18 pounds since the beginning of September.

Whoo! This last few days have been really busy. Work has been kicking into high gear, and school's already moving at a fast pace. I spent three hours doing my homework last night, no joke. Science isn't my strong suit, but I'm going to try the best that I can and call it good. :D

I had my yearly review yesterday, which went awesome. These things seem to get easier and easier every year. I also got a raise, which makes me incredibly happy. More money is always a good thing.

Now, to the thing I need advice about!

So, I have a first date coming up. More than likely, at least two of them. Since I haven't really gotten out and dated in about two years, I am definitely nervous about the whole thing. I want things to go over well, and that includes picking the right outfit.

I was hoping that I could poll the people on my f-list and ask everyone what they think is appropriate "first date" attire. I'm meeting this first guy for coffee, so I'm assuming that it'll be nothing more than casual. I was thinking jeans and a shirt with a cardigan or something over it, but I don't know. Is that too fancy? I would really appreciate any advice! <3

I stayed up way too late last night working on my assignment for my class. At least it's done, and I have a 3-day weekend this weekend due to my taking tomorrow off. Hopefully I can get a lot done!

On a nice note, I was able to talk to my old friend Chris last night on MSN. <3 He and I haven't talked in years, since we're both so busy now. Hopefully we can start e-mailing again and all that.

Bleh. I wish I had time to eat before going to class, but I really don't. Oh well.

I think the :| face is the best way to describe the new year so far. At least I haven't lost anything yet. xD; However, stupid creepy drunk guys at Old C's can make life so much weirder.

And I want my fast internet back, damn it. I'm tired of having to check LJ and my mail on my parent's PC with dial-up.

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!

School's been going okay for me so far! My Accounting class ends next week, which is kind of sad. It's been my favorite one so far, and I'm doing really well in it. I got my third test back today and I got a 100% on it. But, I now have Astronomy to look forward to, along with Art History and Comparative Religion.

On a totally unrelated note, to the point of my post. xD So, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] has a coworker at the gas station named Anthony. I've met him a few times (mostly whenever we've gone in there on her days off) and he's a pretty funny guy. She told me about some of the times he's gone in there on his own days off, when she was working. Apparently he's taken quite an interest in me and told her that he was going to ask me out. I thought "Well, whatever, I'm never going to see him when he's not working, so I don't need to worry about him asking me out."

Yeah. That all changed tonight. xD I stopped in there after I got out of my classes, since [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] was bored and wanted me to come see her. And, Anthony happened to be there at the same time. He'd had a few beers and ended up asking me out for dinner AND breakfast. I tried to turn him down as gently as I could, since all of the days he has off I have other things going on (school, work, etc). He was like "Awww, I feel hurt. But I can tell a no when it's a no. But, just think about it."

I'm flattered that he liked something about me enough to ask me to dinner. xD But, he's in his mid forties to early fifties and smokes/drinks quite a bit. Even if he wasn't old enough to be my dad, I probably wouldn't have said yes. Smoking is something that I find incredibly unattractive; and ever since the whole alcohol thing with my dad, I feel very uncomfortable if I'm around a lot of alcohol or someone who drinks a lot.

So, yeah. That's that.

I'm tired now. Time to go read for a bit.

I most definitely prefer to stay up late~ I love playing games and watching movies and stuff until the sun comes up. :D Unfortunately, my schedule doesn't fit my preference, since I work 8-5 every weekday. But I tend to stay up until at least 1 or 2, anyway... and much later on the weekends. xD

So, no creepy texts from the creeper today. That was nice. And the Doodz doesn't have cancer~ x3

But, I also messed up on some of my work, so that made me sad for a while. It wasn't a big deal, though, so I got over it quickly. xD

I'm totally ready to give up on men. xD;

A few weeks ago, Jessie and I were doing tarot while Shannon was out doing something. We ended up talking about relationships, and we decided that as an experiment I should post a personal ad on Craigslist to see what kind of guy would respond.

So! There was this named Jeremy who responded and he seemed pretty nice at first. But then things started getting all... weird. Like... he sent me pictures of himself, and in both of those pictures he was like... showing off his body. xD It was odd. And I foolishly gave him my number, so he's been sending me really odd/wtf texts. One he sent me last night was "I want to rip off your clothes and make sweet love to you!" ._. And then he got confused when I asked him if this was a friends with benefits thing. Definitely not the brightest crayon in the box... Just, ugh. I have no words for him. And then today he wanted to know my age (at which point Shannon stole my phone and started responding for me), and what I did for a living and all that. xD; Even though I'd already told him that I work in an office. He's just being a pedo/creeper. ._,

And he JUST texted me! Asking what I was wearing. o_o Dude. He also sent me a drunk text yesterday at 11:30 in the morning. xDDD This guy really sucks.

And in other news, our newly adopted cat Doodles may have a malignant tumor. D: And that totally sucks, because we don't have the money to pay for the surgery. It'll help a bit now that Jessie has a job, but... still. I'm probably going to look into getting a part-time job so I can have some extra money. I was going to look for one anyway, but I wish that I didn't have to do it under such circumstances. And I don't want to give her up, because she's so cute and is just now finally starting to get used to us. So I'm going to do all that I can to keep her. But we'll see how it goes... I think I'll hear back from the vet tomorrow.

Just... blah. A lot of things in life suck right now. xD At least I'm starting to get back into RP. I really like playing Laguna; now I just need to do all of the other things that are on my list.

Jessie! We need to play Galerians soon! <333 Maybe sometime later this week? :o

Okay! After the very interesting laptop drama over the last few days, I have finally got a laptop back! Luckily, it's much nicer than the one I originally had. x3 Apparently the one I have now is a gaming laptop, so it'll play tons of games no problem. And that includes Morrowind. So I'm really excited to check out what exactly I can do with this baby. And this new one comes with stuff like Microsoft Money, so I can keep track of my accounts and all that even more easily. And I can check to see how much debt I'm in... >_> I'm also sad that I had to lose all of my RP stuff, icons, music, etc. when I lost my other laptop, but... hey, there was nothing I could do about it.

I went to Life of the Party today, and ended up buying four pairs of shoes. xD But they're all very cute! Two of them are the same shoe, just in different colors: one is with pink satin and black lace, with a three inch heel, and the other pair is red satin with black lace and a three inch heel. I also ordered a pair of knee high boots with ribbons that lace up the side, and some schoolgirl shoes with three inch heels. x3 I can't wait to get them~ I love shoes. No question. And if I go to Suite 152 again and wear that same outfit I did on Tuesday, I can wear my new red heels. x3 *flail*

Speaking of! It was totally awkward seeing Larry there. xD Especially after everything that had happened between us; it was strange to have him wanting to talk to me and hug me. He even invited me over to see the closet he's been living in at Billy's. o_o So I'm a little weirded out by him right now, especially when I think about that time he called me in May. xD Stupid Larry. But him and I meeting again had to happen sooner or later; I'm glad that it happened now instead of at NDK. That would have been really awkward.

I've been really tired lately. And I still need to finish getting my room together; there's still stuff all over the place, especially now that I've unpacked everything in the boxes I brought back from Loveland. Sigh. I really don't want to live at home any more, especially considering the fact that someone in my family ruined my laptop and forced me to go out and buy a new one. But, considering how much in debt I am at the moment, it's probably a good thing that I'm going to be living at home for a while. xD With no rent to worry about, I can focus on paying that off, as slowly as it may be.

Movie night with my co-workers tomorrow! It'll be kind of fun to spend time with everyone outside of work... I'm actually looking forward to it. I work with some pretty cool ladies.

So, el Cherry Blossom festival was good. A little more boring than I had expected, but it was fun hanging out with everybody. And I'm really starting to love Denver! I could definitely imagine living there and enjoying it.

And omg, Dave and Buster's! It is so much fun! I want to go again. ;o; I have over 3000 tickets to spend, but I need more! And apparently there's a place that's similar to Dave and Buster's called Ben and Jerry's a few miles south of it in Denver. Sheena told me so when I talked to her at work yesterday. xD It may be worth checking out.

And ack, gas is so expensive! ;o; Though, not as expensive as in Long Island. xD I had a lady named Jennifer call from there wanting some gas bucks; apparently, her friend is moving to Fort Collins and Jennifer's getting together some gift certificates from local restaurants and all that for her to take with when she moves. That is so sweet! If I ever move, I want someone to do that for me. But anyway! She asked me what the price of gas was, and I told her that I couldn't tell her, since there is apparently a law in Colorado forbidding gas stations to tell their prices over the phone. When I told her that, she was like "Oh well, I'm sure it's not as expensive as it is here. We're up to $4.50 a gallon." x_x

It's funny. I remember trading e-mails with Robby like... 8 years ago when I was vacationing in California with my family. He asked me what gas prices were and I told him that it was over $2 a gallon, and him freaking out in response. xD; Nowadays, it's like... I wish gas was only $2 a gallon. Amazing how times change.

Bah. I feel lame updating my LJ in a span of two days. xD; It's not like I really do anything. I pretty much just work and go home or go to school. I don't really hang out with my friends or anything like that; although, Joe seems to be determined to change that. I was supposed to go to Brush to see my family for Easter (even though I don't celebrate it), but I managed to get out of it since we're all going to the zoo on Sunday. I'm looking forward to it, even if it doesn't seem like it. xD I guess that I'm just lame and don't say or express what I'm really thinking... although I wish we were going to the museum instead. I hope I have fun. I'm seriously going to cry if I don't.

So, yeah, my relationship with Larry seems to have fizzled out. xD The last time we met up was so awkward; it was basically him asking me one question and staring at me blankly for the rest of the time. I ended up having to ask him questions just to get him to actually talk to me. At least Joe was on my side about it. xD: According to him, I should say "fuck it" and go find someone else. "You deserve much better, if he's going to be an asshole about it." It made me happy that he was defending me; I thought it would have been the other way around, seeing as how he's known Larry longer.

So, I guess I'm going to be staying the whole weekend at NDK after all. @_@ I'm giving it one more shot; hopefully third time is the charm and I'll have a lot more fun this year than I have the previous two years. It's been kind of awkward, as I was totally miserable these past two years. I guess that as a last resort, I can always bring my laptop and internet thingy in case the same thing happens this year. There are times at NDK I wish that I drove myself so I could just go home when I wanted to, but... xD Well, we'll just see how things go.

So, here's a tenative list of cosplays I'm going to try and do for NDK:

-Risa (definitely the one I'm looking forward to; Angie wants to see pics xD)
-Hachi
-Female Aya Fujimiya
-Kabuto (a possibility; it'd be nice to be included with the other Naruto cosplays, but I'm still undecided)
-Possibly Setsuka and Nanao, if needed (and if I can get a hold of the proper accessories again).

Dropping Matsumoto, because there's no point if I don't have a Gin. And I was briefly considering doing Hiro again, but... no. I sucked as him, so I really don't want to have to go through that torture again. Other than that, I really can't think of any cosplays that I can do.

Been feeling kind of bleh, to be honest. The only good thing about the past few days is that Angie's been cheering me up with Kensei/Risa love. They make me go "x333".
jupiterhalo: (Say what?!)
Work has totally been keeping me down lately. xO This past week I had 38 hours scheduled... it's good money, but still. xD People just don't seem to realize that I need my days off, too. Of course, I could always turn them down, but... if I do, I feel bad. And I'd like to think that because I'm taking their shifts now, if I need some covered in the future they'll do the same. But, yeah. I'm finally going to get Tina-chan her CD player with this week's big paycheque~! That's exciting.

On another note, what's not so exciting? My first gross experience at Macy*s. xD It's kind of hard to believe that I've been there almost two years, and have now only run into something really nasty in the fitting rooms. I've been around when other people have had their experiences, but it's never happened to me personally. It's nothing too bad compared to what some of my friends have experienced, but... still. xD Anyway, when I was working my shift on Friday, I found a used diaper in the fitting room. T_T It was very gross... even a little warm, still. xD; *sigh* I swear, people are just odd in what they think is acceptable behavior in public places.

And I hate my date with David about a week or so ago! It was pretty fun... we went bowling and then went to Starbucks after that. :D He wants to go mini golfing when we get together next... or he wants to take me to a shooting range and teach me how to shoot a gun. xD; He has some very strange ideas, I think. But both sound fun to me~

And I also went to Red Robin for the first time in months about a week ago, as well. I was hoping to see both Derek and Chewy, since Derek pestered Shannon and me about coming in. xD But it was only Chewy... it was nice to see him, though! And Carter works at the Red Robin, too! o_O I thought that he worked at the one in Loveland, so it was a surprise to see him. xD He came over and we chatted for a bit, and he made me promise to come in and see him more often.

I've also had my first few therapy sessions with Natalie. She seems like a really nice person... and it's been kind of stabilizing to get back into therapy. xD It's like "Okay, I'm in therapy, the world is normal now." But yeah... I'm going to see her for the summer (at $15 a session, though ;o;). But she's taking Britney's place in the fall, so I'm probably going to continue seeing her once school starts again.

Speaking of... I finally decided to take "World Music." xD It's my last semester, and I want to have a few fun classes. And I'm much happier when I have a music class, anyway. But I'm the first person to sign up for it. I wonder if I'll be the only one in it..? There will probably be more people signing up as it gets closer to August.

It's a good thing I'm working all of these hours, though. e_e; Manga is taking over my life! I'm already buying them so much... and now there's a new series I want to check out. xD It is so good, though.
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.

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.

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.

Edit:

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;

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!

So, the Solstice party was last night.

I must say, I had quite a lot of fun. xD I'm really happy that I went, and I had a blast watching movies and hanging out with everyone. I was very happy to see Ana, Nic, Billy, and everyone else again. I haven't seen them in quite a while (damn work >_<). "Clerks II" was very amusing, so I'll have to see "Clerks" some time in the near future. "Interstate 60" was excellent as always. It's one of those movies that gets better every time you see it. I hope that those who hadn't seen it before last night (which were only Billy and Chris, I believe) enjoyed it a lot.

And when everyone was passing out gifts, I was surprised that I got quite a few. I was expecting one from Nic and Ana, but not from Billy, Andrew, Chris, Joe and Kira. xD; I thought that I wasn't going to get anything, which would have been totally fine. The group is far too generous (especially Billy O_O). <3 <3 <3 So I'll get them all gifts soon... I just need to get the funds for it.

But, yes. Party = good. Not having to work because of the blizzard and getting paid for it = very, very good. I may not have to work tomorrow, as well. ^_^

On another note, Jacob called me last night and wanted to know if I had any plans for New Year's Eve. I'm already working 2:00 to 6:00 that day, and I think that the girls and I are going to do something for New Year's Eve (right, you two? ^_^), at least for a little while. If not, then I may go spend it with him... but I don't know yet. xD We shall see.

So, it's less than a week to Christmas. The countdown begins... *cringes*

I don't think things at Macy*s will be all that busy, though. Luckily, I have almost all of my presents ready, except for a few that I knew I wasn't going to have in time for the holidays. So, I can always give those presents out after the holiday season is over.

So, the solstice party is tomorrow. And as always, I'm considering not going... I kind of feel like there are a few people who don't want me there, so what's the point in showing up? It would be nice to see Billy, Joe and the rest of the guys again, however. So, I don't know. I have to drive Shannon there anyway, so I may stay for a while. But we'll see.

The good thing about tomorrow is that Shannon and I are making soccer ball cookies for Ken's birthday on Saturday. <3 That's going to be a lot of fun, although I still need to buy the icing and sprinkles, as well as find a recipe for sugar cookies. I think that we have one that my great-grandmother passed down or something, so I'll see if I can find it for tomorrow.

Now that break has started, I've been trying to catch up on some movie watching. I've recently gotten into watching "Scrubs;" I even asked for the first season DVD set for Christmas. I went to a movie on the 11th ("The Holiday," with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz), which was fun. I haven't seen a movie in theaters since "Saw III." I watched my DVD of "Phantom of the Opera" as well, which was great. I remembered why I had seen it seven times in theaters when it first came out. I also went and rented a few DVDs at Blockbuster: "Superman Returns" and "Dear Frankie." I've been wanting to see "Dear Frankie" for a long time now, and the only rental place that had it was Blockbuster. So, when the DVD was *finally* available, I totally had to get it.

I watched "Superman Returns" first, because it was only a two day rental. It was probably a bad thing starting about one in the morning, since I fell asleep about an hour and a half into the movie. So I missed the ending completely, but from what I saw of it first was really good. Yay for James Marsden; he rocks my socks.

Now I'm in the process of watching "Dear Frankie," which is excellent so far. I'm about half an hour from the end. Gerard Butler's character makes me laugh; he's so awkward at first but then becomes so sweet. <3 The only bad thing about it is because it's a Scottish film, everyone has really thick accents. However, that really helps with the setting and the story. Frankie is a really cute kid. And Emily Mortimer, who plays his mother, also plays Young Sophie in "Howl's Moving Castle."

So, last night I went out to dinner with Jacob. It was still really awkward, especially since I was tired. He kept staring at me throughout dinner, which was very weird. He was also asking me about my dating history, because apparently Charity told him a few things. xD He also really didn't seem to be interested in many things I had to say; for example, I asked him what movies he had seen lately. He told me, and I expected him to ask me in return so we could have a nice talk about them. But he didn't. It still feels really strange with him.

Over break, I plan on writing a lot more. I need to write the following pairings for fanfics:

-Scott x Jean
-Keisuke x Sayuki
-Sayuki x Takumi

I also want to RP a lot more. It seems like Sayuki and Mako are doing a lot; the same with Hiro and Aya. I also need to work on my applications for Knight and Sailor Pluto for [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], as well as finish my application for Laguna for [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. Both Mako and Shannon wanted me to join, so I'll give it a shot.

I'll also be working quite a bit. Since my mother is losing her job in January, I want to save up some money so I can at least help pay for some of my education. I also need to start saving up for Fanime, NDK 2007 and a computer. So many things to buy; so little money to buy them with. >_>

Oh yes, it seems like a lot of people have been crabby lately. I wonder why that is...?

Damn Sexuality. Damn paper. ~_~

I've lost my groove. For some reason, my paper just isn't coming out right... my writing feels awkward and I can't think of what I want it to say. I only have about a page and a half written, and it's due tomorrow afternoon.

*spazzes* I'll just be happy when this semester is over and done with on Friday. I don't give a damn about my grades anymore; I just want to rest. And go Christmas/Solstice shopping. And I want to bake some cookies. :0 Just do some fun things... those are nice.

*sigh* Well, back to the paper from hell. :< Hopefully I can get five pages written by tomorrow. On a brighter note, Jacob should be calling me tonight! So, that should make me feel less apprehensive.
