12:45 pm - 日本に行きましょう！
OK! So I leave for Japan on the 3rd and yes, I am scared shitless. I'm excited too... but more scarred right now than anything else. I was a little late on getting my visa app out so here is hoping that it comes back in time. *crosses fingers* I'm sure it will be fine... but I'm cutting it really close. |
main reason for this post is, I've made a new livejournal that is going to be just for my travel stuff... not like I post much in this one already but I won't be posting in it at all when I'm in Japan XD. pinkjulip is my new LJ and there will be lots of videos and pics ^_^ yay!!
Also, feel free to IM me (bombaysprodigy) but keep in mind the time difference. Japan is 14 hours ahead of Pittsburgh sooo yeah 1pm in Pitt on the 3rd is around 2-3 am on the 4th in Japan. I'm sure the first few days I"m there I'll be up later because of jetlag but I probably won't have internet connection. I've been told by those over in Japan already that, besides the computer lab, there isn't much wireless internet. But I think my dorms might actually have it.... I'll have to double check, Oh and now that I've got my laptop, I've got a camera so I can do video chat too ^_^.
I won't have a cell phone for regular calls but my mom got me this thing called Magic Jack... like a phone for my computer. It is registered to a Pittsburgh area number so you guys can call me on it and it won't count as a long distance phone call ^_^ I don't remember the phone number right now, but if you want it, send me a txt before I leave or something and I'll get it to you.
ok I think that's it, Hopefully I'll get to see a few of you guys before I leave and if I don't, have a safe and happy new year and I'll yak at ya when I get back in the country in May ^_^

11:52 pm - Motivation? I think I remember you......
ok soooo I know this will earn me a slap over the head from at least a few people, but I know a lot of my RL friends know that I wanna lose some weight... ok a lot of weight. I'd like to be at least 180 before I head to Japan... that's only like 30 pounds... I can do that in a few months right??? Well after 4 weeks of saying that I'm going to start going to the gym to make up for the lack of walking that I'm doing... I still haven't gone and the past few Saturdays have been spent not even getting out of bed. Granted they were partially do to some drinking the night before... but that is besides the point. |
Either way, in my head I keep telling myself to just go do it. Not only the gym but other things too. My room looks like a clothing bomb went off and you can barely see the floor. For the past week I've been saying I need to go to Walmart to get a planner and some laundry stuff.... yeah still haven't done it. I've been meaning to study Japanese at least for an hour every day... and I've hardly touched my book outside of class... basically I'm feeling like a complete bum and I'm starting to hate myself for it.
Last night while I was wasting away in bed and putting of a shower, infomercials came on and I watched a few. The one that I stopped on was one for Tae Bo... Billy is coming out with a new thing... or something. So anyway I'm watching the infomercial and I can slightly feel the urge to get up and do something... slightly. They are interviewing a bunch of people and a lot of people have lost a lot of weight doing Tae Bo. One lady said she started at 210 and was able to get down to 160 pounds. Now I know that this isn't something that happened in just a month or something, but Billy makes a silly guarentee of 24/7; You'll feel the difference in 24 hours and you'll start to see a difference in 7 days. I"m sure the heavier you are, the more drastic the change in a shorter amount of time. And yeah they could be lieing, but I work with a girl who lost 25 pounds doing Tae Bo for about 2 or 3 months... which is about the time that I have left before I go to Japan.... but watching this thing for an hour reminded me that Mlin left a Tae Bo dvd at the apartment and she said I could keep it. I tried doing it a few weeks back and I couldn't get past the warm up... my room is too small... and my legs KILLED me for an entire week. I wasn't used to doing squats.
So anyway, I feel motivated... not today though... I worked and almost fell asleep on the way back home... but I think that maybe tomorrow I'll give it a try... I just don't want anyone to see me do it... or I dunno. But I'm going to have to do it in the living room... there just isn't enough room in my bedroom. But yeah... I think I'll do it. I know I used to love working out for volleyball... I love the tiredness that comes after it and I fell like I can get more done... I wanna feel that again. Hopefully this motivation will spill over into the other aspects of my life... maybe. ^_^
So expect updates from me every once in a while. And wish me luck!! Maybe I'll drag Joy into this with me ^_^

7:07 pm - "My theory is that Laura was always secretly in love with her father..."
Ok so I'm nearing the end of the first week of classes... happy day. Tomorrow is my first Japanese test... which I should be studying for but I'm not XD At least not right now. |
At first I thought that Jap 401 was going to be my hardest class... I was mistaken. CMLIT 400Y is a Senior Seminar class that, while it doesn't really have a large writing load, it does have a shit ton of reading as well as a few in class projects. Right after that I have ENGL 212: Intro to Fiction Writing. Now this class is being taught by a Grad Student who acts like she's still an undergrad. Which is good in a way 'cause I don't know how else I'd get though that class if she didn't make it so fun. I've got a shit ton of writing and reading to do for that class. So to pair that up with the study load for Jap 401... yeah not much of a social life during the week. And I'm supposed to give Panda my availability soon... but the way things look, I will only be able to work Fri-Sun. I can't afford to give up any of my time during the week. It really kinda sucks ass.
The CMLIT class is Criticism and Theory class... and I was worried 'cause that's really not my strong point and it seems like most of the people in that class have had some kind of theory class before and yeah... but I read the first chapter of the one book that we had to read and OMG parts of it had me loling.... but for the most part, I felt like I should have had a dictionary beside me while I read it.
The title of this entry is part of one of the quotes that had me laughing. The book attempts to explain theory to us dummies by giving examples that we're supposed to be able to relate to. The one is Q: Why did Laura and Michael break up? A: My theory is....
So the book gave examples of answers that weren't really theory but the one that they gave as one that could be considered theory was "My theory is that Laura was always secretly in love with her father and that Michael could never succeed in becoming the right person." I was like o_O; did Sarah write this book?? XD The other quote was in reference to a guy named Foucault and his book called "The History of Sexuality". Now I read the title of the book... but they use "sex" in the book in place of "gender" and didn't really make the connection right away... it wasn't until later that I realized the point that it was making XD so the quote "...over the centuries [sex] has become more important to us than our soul" totally had me giggling like I was back in HS. So yeah... fun book so far ^_^
Today I saw Dee.... and we greeted one another with a huge hug like nothing had happened... Friday we are all playing Football at Old Main... it will be interesting to see how things play out. *nod nod*

11:06 pm - You Make My Day
|Wednesday, August 6th, 2008|
10:35 pm - yay for bargans!!!
ok so today was a day out with my okaa-san. I had a hair appointment with my aunt at one in Wexford and... we got lost ^^ but we still made it on time and now Julie has shorter hair and bangs again. She also used something in my hair that made it super soft ... like softer than conditioner gets it... I must have!!!! I'll be getting my hair highlighted and pink put in it before I go back up to school... so I'll post pics then ne?|
We went to lunch and then to get ice cream... and she's like "I want to go to the Salvation Army Store in 'quip. You up to going?" So we went ^^ and omg greatest day to go!!! It was family day so all clothing and shoes that didn't have a green tag were 50% off. *does the happy dance* So I spent a little under 20 bucks and got like 3 pairs of shoes and about 10 shirts... it was great! I'll have to go back one more time before I go back to school... or I'll rope Joy into riding over to the one on the R route up at UP.
ah isn't it nice not to have me complaining again XD

6:44 pm - Supi may have a stalker! O_O
ok... most of us have done it... googled are names... Well when I went back to TNO and Neopets, I decided to google my username "supisweetattack". It's a name I've used over and over again since I thought it up in 2003 when I joined neopets. It's my main account there and I also have supis_fosters. There are two photobucket accounts (supisweetattack and Supischibis) and the url for my myspace account has supisweetattack in it. It's also in a few other things of mine that will go unmentioned. |
So when I googled it, I didn't expect to find any sites that didn't deal with me... but I was wrong. There were three sites. One, was a normal website that has the username "supisweetattack" and... to my surprise, is using an icon that I had requested from leira_icons when she was still taking requests. My first thought was "O_O OMG!! THATS MINE!!!" But there is nothing there so I tried to brush it off... but there were still the other two sites.
The other two listed were links to a Pokemon forum and they were under the user, supisweetattack. But again, they were from back in 2006 and I thought maybe she wasn't active anymore... I was wrong. She's the same girl with the site... and she's still active... only 5 days ago she changed her name to "Supi" instead.
I know that it doesn't really matter and everything... but that's my username *cry* So I joined the forum as just casually asked her were she got her name from. The answer?
"I dunno, I guess it just came about somehow.
I honestly don't know... xD
People thought of me as really super nice my first couple of years, I guess."
.... nice my ass. I sent her one back asking where she got the "supi" part from and asking if she has ever played Neopets. ... if she asks me why I'm asking... I'll tell her... I'd really like to get her on AIM... but I dun want her to think she's being harassed or something... grrr. it just pisses me off.
I"ma done now <<

8:46 pm - Supi fails at listening and having will power
sooo when I had asked my mom what she wanted for her birthday and she said "a new battery for my camera"... all I heard was "... new battery..." and I inserted "For my phone" after it. I swear that's what she said.... and she pulled that fake smile when she opened it as was like "oh.... thanks." I kinda wanted to kick her. Good thing that that damn battery was on sale... but still 35 bucks for something she didn't even want >_>|
As for the will power issue.... I can't seem to get the darn DS out of my hands... I played it so much that it made me hallucenate because I hold it waaaaaaaaaay to close to my face... I was up all night about two days ago because the boxes in my closet were moving... I swear they were. And no amount of blinking or rubbing my eyes would fix it.
Also I was silly and returned to TNO chat... because I missed everyone... however, this led me to returning to Neopets... a little... I said I wouldn't get back into fostering until I got back into my third lab account... and go figure... I got into it this morning. woot. And something has possessed me to go back to Gaia... I think it was my brother talking about May's donation items... they're cool as hell... and now there is a new pinball game (well new for me) and it's loads of fun... sooo I've become a veggie in front of my compy all day.... woot
Damn I miss UP. -__-;

2:40 am - Lerning about the Inner Me.... through quizes XD
So I found this quiz site while I was bored and there was a section about learning about the inner you.... like the drawing a Pig thing... and I decided to try a few ^_^ ... ok a lot of them ^_^ I'm more posting this for myself... and I posted the site at the end just in case anyone was interested ^^|
yay for analysing my hand writing ^_^ Now I just wrote this normal.... and then I realized I was supposed to do it in cursive... oh well.
1. How would you say your letters slope?
Straight up and down?
Answer: Straight up and down - indicates that you are a person with a strong need for contact.
2. Are the letters in your words
Fully connected, with clear breaks between the words?
Partially connected, depending on the letters?
Unconnected, like printing?
Answer: Partially connected - indicates that you are a shy, idealistic person who does not find it easy to have relationships, especially intimate ones.
3. Between words, do you leave
No spaces - words are connected, pen doesn't leave paper?
Answer: Narrow spaces - indicates that you are a talkative person, maybe even a busybody!
4. How close together are your lines of writing?
Very far apart?
Apart far enough that the letters do not touch?
Close enough that the descenders (like y and g) of the top and the ascenders (like h and t) of the bottom overwrite each other?
Answer: Close enough so that the descendants of Y's and G's touch the ascendants of H's and T's - indicates that you are a person with a well-organized mind.
5. What color ink did you choose? (If you used another color, which of these three would you prefer?)
Blue black - indicates that you are rational, conservative, a person who adheres to conventions and traditions.
6. How large was your capitol I in the sample?
Larger than the other capitol letters
About the same size as the other capitol letters
Smaller than the other capitol letters
About the same size - indicates that you are a person who may be feeling depressed or have low self-esteem.
7. What do your t bars look like? (The crossbars on your letter t)*lol if anyone has ever seen me write the words that have a "th" in them... know that there should be a "crosses at the very bottom of the stem" XD*
They tend to be to the left of the stem of the t
They cross the t more or less in the middle
They tend to be to the right of the stem of the t
They cross the 't' more or less in the middle - indicates that you are not very original but very responsible, possibly in management.
8. Does your writing
Slope upward on the page?
Go straight across the page?
Slope downward on the page?
Slope upward on the page - indicates that you are energetic, optimistic, and assertive.
9. Which takes the most space vertically in a line of your writing?
The ascenders? (the tops of t and h)
The middle zone? (letters like a and e and n)
The descenders? (the bottoms of j and y and g)
The descenders - indicates that you are a person with an overdeveloped ego and a tendency to be bossy.
10. How much pressure does your writing show?
Fine and spidery?
Firm and even?
Firm and even - indicates that you are a person of strong but rigid will, obstinate but powerful.
lol it's all pretty accurate... except for the T one... I cross my T's really weird...
Letters of my last name....
You are a very social individual, and it is important to you to have a relationship. You require closeness and togetherness. You must be able to talk to your sex partner-before, during, and after. You want the object of your affection to be socially acceptable and good-looking. You see your lover as a friend and companion. You are very sexual and sensual, needing someone to appreciate and almost worship you. When this cannot be achieved, you have the ability to go for long periods without sexual activity. You are an expert at controlling your desires and doing without.
You can be very romantic, attached to the glamour of love. Having a partner is of paramount importance to you. You are free in your expression of love and are willing to take chances, try new sexual experiences and partners, provided it's all in good taste. Brains turn you on. You must feel that your partner is intellectually stimulating, otherwise you will find it difficult to sustain the relationship. You require loving, cuddling, wining, and dining to know that you're being appreciated.
Your greatest need is to talk. If your date is not a good listener, you have trouble relating. A person must be intellectually stimulating or you are not interested sexually. You need a friend for a lover and a companion for a bedmate. You hate disharmony and disruption, but you do enjoy a good argument once in a while-it seems to stir things up. You flirt a lot, for the challenge is more important than the sexual act for you. But once you give your heart away, you are uncompromisingly loyal. When you don't have a good lover to fall asleep with, you will fall asleep with a good book. Sometimes, in fact, you prefer a good book.
You are emotional and intense. When involved in a relationship, you throw your entire being into it. Nothing stops you; there are no holds barred. You are all consuming and crave someone who is equally passionate and intense. You are willing to try anything and everything. Your supply of sexual energy is inexhaustible. You also enjoy mothering your mate.
You may appear innocent, unassuming, and shy; but we know that appearances can lie. When it comes to sex, you are no novice but something of a skilled technician. You can easily go to extremes, though, running the gamut from insatiability to boredom with the whole idea of sex. You can be highly critical of you mate, seeking perfection in both of you. It is not easy to find someone who can meet your standards. You have difficulty expressing emotions and drawing close to lovers.
You are very sensitive, private, and sexually passive; you like a partner who takes the lead. Music, soft lights, and romantic thoughts turn you on. You fantasize and tend to fall in and out of love. When in love, you are romantic, idealistic, mushy, and extremely changeable. You enjoy having your senses and your feelings stimulated, titillated, and teased. You are a great flirt. You can make your relationships fit your dreams, all in your own head. this line is so close it's scary o_O;
For you, it is business before pleasure. If you are in any way bothered by career, business, or money concerns, you find it very hard to relax and get into the mood. You can be romantically idealistic to a fault and are capable of much sensuality. But you never lose control of your emotions. You are very careful and cautious before you give your heart away-and your body, for that matter. Once you make the commitment, though, you stick like glue.
This one made me giggle
Red - Adele
Blue - Ken
White - Grace
Yellow - Joy
Green - Sarah
Orange - Mlin ^^
Red - Represents the person who you love.
Blue - Represents the person who you seem to have a difficult relationship with.
White - Represents the person who is your soul mate.
Yellow - Represents the person who will never forget about you.
Green - Represents the person who you will remember for the rest of your life.
Orange - Represents your true friend.
lolz how weird is that... yes, Adele is my secret love. Shh don't tell Amam... though I must admit... I thought about her too with red... 'cause of her hair XD
The picture ones made be laugh XD
I won't post the pic encase anyone goes to the site themselves ^^
I got: Romantic, dreamy, emotional
You are a very sensitive person. You refuse to view things only from a sober, rational standpoint. What your feelings tell you is just as important to you. In fact, you feel it is important to have dreams in life, too.
You reject people who scorn romanticism and are guided only by rationality. You refuse to let anything confine the rich variety of your moods and emotions.
This was the one with the story about which path do you take, what kinda of roses, who gets your loved one, where do you put the roses, the next morning are they sleeping or awake when you check on them and then which path do you take home... in that order ^^.
~The roads represent your attitude towards falling in love. If you chose the short one, you fall in love quickly and easily.
~The number of red roses represent how much you expect to give in a relationship. The number of white roses represent how much you expect in a relationship. I picked Half and half
~This question (does the maid get your bf/gf or do you) shows your attitude in handling relationship problems. If you asked the maid to get your loved one, then you may beat around the bush, maybe asking a third party to intervene. Avoidance of problems runs high.
~The placement of the roses indicates how often you'd like to see your boyfriend/girlfriend. Placing the roses on the bed means you need lots of reassurance in the relationship, and you'd want to see your loved one every day, if possible.
~Finding your boyfriend/ girlfriend asleep: You accept your loved one the way they are.
~which path on the way home? If you chose the long one, you tend to stay in love for a long time.
Sexual Type based on fav color
Pink: Persons who like pink show a reluctance to mature in sexual matters: women tend to tease and to promise more than they intend to deliver. Men who like pink are the philanderers and flirts. Women whose husbands like pink should keep a secret nest egg.
and for the heck of it, green too.
Green: Those who prefer green are fresh and innocent in their approach to sex. A man may always be a trifle clumsy and awkward but in a charming and endearing sort of way. Green lovers are gentle, but not passionate. If chosen as a mate, one will never need worry about infidelity.
Do I have an "x-factor"?
bunch of Qs and you get points based on your answers... I got a 27/30 woot
You're a babe (24 to 30)
You are very appealing to a man and have great inner beauty and strength as well as physical attractiveness. You take pride in your appearance and like a man who appreciates it! You like being accepted as a person rather than a sex symbol and you like a man who is intelligent as well as good looking.
and me in a nut shell... literally
What personality tree did I fall from?
Chestnut tree: (the honesty) - of unusual beauty, does not want to impress, well-developed sense of justice, vivacious, interested, a born diplomat, but irritates easily and sensitive in company, often due to a lack of self confidence. Acts sometimes superior, feels not understood, loves only once, has difficulties in finding a partner.
. . . yep that's me alright... well maybe not the "Of unusual beauty" part but the rest of it is.
Actual Test from HR Development
31 to 40 points: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful and practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest...Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.
they gave you a list to put in order of what you would do first...
The baby is crying.
The clothes are hanging outside and it has started to rain.
The water is running from the tap.
The doorbell is ringing.
The phone is ringing
Now for me... it depends... Am I already in the kitchen to turn off the water?? but I went Baby, water, door, phone, clothes... cause the water takes just a sec to turn off and who ever called you can call them back... it translated into Family, wealth, friends, career, and then sex... eh.. w/e
ok all done
that's the web site if anyone wanted to check it out ^_^

12:13 am - Late on my own Bday XD
Sooo by birthday has been over for 13 min... and it was fun. I didn't do much... We went to Ichiban, and Japanese Hibachi place and I got Salmon rolls (still can't stomach Nori) and got to try Warm Sake. got that shit is potent! It looked like water but I felt like it was thick... kinda like pudding. But there was a little boy at our table too, and it was his bday as well... to they brought out two big flaring candles... and because I did't want Ice-cream, I got a free Ramune. WOOT! My mom took my first Pop&Beer For Less store and we got a 24 party pack of Smirnoff Ice... I wanted pure Ice but... she said it would be better to get the variety pack -_-; oh well, more for my girlies when they come over ^_^ |
When we got back, my G-pa his wife, my aunt and my cousin all came over for cake. It was nice and my mom got me this really pretty necklace that reminds me of a moon. It has pink and white saphires and it's white gold.... Granted, I picked it out but still. My Dad got me a "Guide to remembering Kanji" (yet another thing that I picked out) and a random 500 heros and Villians of Manga book... He also drew me a card that had japanese written in it... and I felt bad because I didn't know it was from him... I freeze up when I have to read kanji on the spot and there were two kanji I didn't know.... he also wrote it from left to right... and when I see Japanese written up and down like that... I read it right to left... I mean I got that it said love and then Dad... but I dunno, I just didn't think it was from him.
My cousin brings her DS everytime she comes over... and of couse she wants to take a look at mine (I had been playing Osu when they came over so it was paused) and she kept asking me where she could get the japanese version of the game, how she could get an R4 card, and how to get online with her DS. My answers: a friend got it for me, it's $400 on the internet, and I have no idea. Granted, only the first and last answers are true... I actually have no idea how much an R4 card really goes for... but I do know they are hard to find and it's not something she needs considering that everything she wants, my Grandfather will buy her... which it totally unfair, but I don't complain.... nemore. I was also a little suprised at how much she knew about alcohol... though I guess I shouldn't be considering she's 14. But it was sad to hear her talking about Frats and what not... she said she wanted to join... I told her that they were bad and that they were also illegal... and now she doesn't want to be in one anymore... yay for more little lies ^_^ I kinda wish I was home more... that girl looks up to me a little too much so she does like, whatever I tell her... and goodness knows that she doesn't get much guidence from her mom... but anyway
Overall today was good. No I didn't get drunk... a little tipsy but that was about it. I'm looking forward to Thursday. A group of my girlies are taking me out to the Funny Bone... and yay. I kinda wanna hit Dave and Buster's too... it'd be fun to play some of those games drunk and now I'm old enough to go without my parents!! yay.

12:36 am - A Night in the Arts
sooo tonight was a good night. My buddy Sarah picked me up to go to an art show that she was in. I was a little worried at first cause I've been to events where all I knew was one person and it sucks being stuck to their side when other people want to talk to them. But anyway, I went at about 6:30 and everyone was still setting up. It was a little show and there was some interesting photos ^^ There was free food and entertainment, so all was good. |
The theme for the night was "Good vs. Evil" and the two bands that played were also supposed to represent that. Now the first one was Evil... and I don't remember who they were... the music was good and the fact that the one kid was playing an electric cello was fucking amazing... but it was still overall "eh". The second act was a bit misleading. It was Uncle Scratch and the ... something revival... I don't remember exactly but it looked like it was going to be a bunch of Bible thumpers... oh how wrong I was...
I've never laughed so hard... Because we were told to, I'm going quote the one guy. "The reason that the Devil's cross is upside down is so that he has easy access to shove it up his ass"
and just some more funny quotes
"The Devil was known to teabag people in my day"
"60 wats of Jesus power!!"
It was funny, and I really enjoyed myself ^_^
Edit:... I wonder why my "artistic" fox icon is reading a newspaper o_O?

11:18 pm - My kitty is a tool!!!
. . . |
I just want to thank my three lovely friends for successfully turning me into a hermit... I didn't even get out of my pj's today and most of the time I was playing either Osu, Bomber Man, or Harvest moon... ok, mostly just Harvest moon... I had forgotten how addicting that game is ^^;
This game has successfully made me feel stupid at least twice already... you know how I was ripping my hair out trying to find a place to buy seeds and everything??? Turns out... I access all the shops through the phone.... the day I clicked on the phone and it brought up a list of all the shops... I literally started laughing my head off... I felt ubber silly.
Also, in this game... you have affection points as well as friend points and apparently I'm not a good farmer if I can't be friendly with everyone. What social skills has to do with tending plants, I'm not sure... but unless I have so many Friend Points with people, I can't upgrade my house which means I cant get my kitchen and my double bed, which ultimately leads to me not being able to propose to Kai (my bachelor of choice). So I've been trying to read guides on the best way to up people's FP and I really don't see how it works... I feel like there isn't enough time in the day for everything considering like ever 5 seconds= 10 min. << And if I miss a day... some of the girls in the village's FP goes down by 9pts!! and they are back at 0... now I could see if I didn't see them for like 3 or so days... but over night?! Are you kidding me?! Not to mention to even get access to the wonderful Hot Springs that would make this game so much easier, I have to get one of the girls to 250 fpts.... but every day it seemed she was going back to 0. One guide mentioned that showing your pets to people was a good and inexpensive way to up FPts.... and they were correct.
So I corner Flora in her little tent thingy and show her my cat and her fpts go up by 1... so I do it again... and again.... and again... and then it dons on me... hehe... I can get her to 250 in one go... so yes... I sat there for 10 ish min mashing the A button until she was at 255; the max fpts... now to take my kitteh to the other unsuspecting villagers
as a side note... I'm going to have to take some pictures of how I sticker-fied the DS ^_^ it's so adorable ^_^ totally Fuuruba'd out ^^

8:23 pm - home sweet home!!! [/sarcasim]
ok so I've been home for what about two whole days now... and I'm already ready to head back up to campus. Don't get me wrong... I less than three my parents greatly but... today... was supposed to be mothers day... instead it was lets see which parent can outdue the other in financial responsibilities day. Honestly, I've never detested my family more that I did today... and I was harshly reminded why I hate comming home... |
For those that were aware, Wednesday nightish, I talked to my cousin who was supposed to come up with his wife and kids for the weekend.... durring that conversation, there was some Pat bashing (Pat's my bro) My cousin brought up the fact that the last time my brother was at his mom's (my aunt) house, there was some problems and I was like "Yeah I heard"... now normally this wouldn't have been a bad thing... that is if it was any other family then mine. Today, my mom and dad get an email from said aunt about a few things and, low and behold, the fact that I mentioned that I knew that something went on was mentioned in the letter. This led my aunt to believe that my brother was being a blabbermouth to my mom and then she told me and she insisted that my mom was mad at her because of it and that she should get a chance to tell her side of the story. Now there were other things in the letter one of which was the spark that lit the arguement.... and before I could even get in the shower
Huuuuuuuuuuuuge fight.... now I hate hearing my parents fight because 1) well they are my parents and 2) most of the time it's over petty shit... Most of the time that there is a fight, it usually results in my mom crying in her room about the way my dad treats her, my dad storming out the door and driving somewhere, and my in my room crying and thinking "God this sucks ass". So I spent most of today crying. It also doesn't help that any time my parents fight, my mom usually has some misguided anger toward me and she snaps super easy... she snapped at me over something stupid and I started crying again... yay -_-;.
So my dad is still gone and I'm finally cooling down and my mom comes in and is like "I'm going to the store, I dunno if you wanna come" and walks away... I shouted that I'd stay at the house... get some peace and quiet... and then she calls me and is like "I'll be going out to eat... you Dad won't take me out after that fight... so if you want dinner you better come"
So I drag my emo ass down to the car and we go shopping. Now I haven't eaten yet and it's about 5ish at this point and my mom is asking if I want anything from the store. The fight that they just had was over money and what not and I'm depressed and figured that I could live off of Ramen for 3 months and told her I didn't want anything.... although there was a lot of stuff I wanted... like chicken, pizza rolls, and some veggies... but anyway. Skipping a head a little bit, we are sitting in the car and my mom is trying to decide where to eat... she says she has cupons for Subway... now I <3 subway greatly but I knew that wasn't where she wanted to eat... especially on her so called Mother's Day. So I told her to pick and that's when she lost it. She's sitting in the van bawling about how she always gets screwed over like this... So I gave her a hug and rubbed her back... but then she said stuff that got me crying... again. She said my Dad doesn't even talk to her anymore... that after dinner he plops down infront of his fucking bigscreen and flips through the channels and then goes to bed... not a word to her all day. To hear my mom say "Thank God I have the cat, otherwise I'd never get any affection or attention..." broke my heart. and it was follwed with "Why did she have to send that email today?" And I must agree... why mother's day of all days when she KNOWS how my parents are and how they fight... she totally did it on purpose... I'm actually 99.9999999999% sure of it... the letter itself was harmless... but to do major damage, she waited a few days to send it... sooo in responce... I refused to call her today... eventhough she is my GodMother.... sooo yeah. Fuck that
Soooo I was like I"m taking my mom out and if dad get's mad about it,,,, well than fuck him... My mom was worried that it would cause more problems if we went out with out him and was like "Well tough shit for him... he left the house." So we went to our fav chinese place and had a nice time ^_^
And that was my day... goodness it's great to be home</sarcasim>

11:06 pm - 日本語を勉強したくない！
So today was the last day of classes... tomorrow I have a Japanese Speaking Test.... and Monday I have my Japanese final, my Medieval Japanese History Test, and my take home for the Romantics is due ε=(～Д～;) 大変だ～ And right now I should be studying... but I dun wanna -_-; I'm not even sure what I should be studying... I mean, I kinda know... but at the same time I don't (*´д｀*) also... I'm not tired... yay.
I'm feeling pretty good as far as my grades go right now (though Amam is kicking my ass at Japanese and Jap 120 o(｀ω´*)o ) I've got a 90.2 in Japanese.... I've got an odd feeling that I'm not going to be able to hold onto it (T_T) I'll need at least an A on the Final.... which is slim to none. Jap 120 I've got a 92.9... or was it 91.9... one of the two... I need higher than an 81 which I think I can do. For Japanese history... I need a 97 on the final to get exactly a 90% in the class and in Romantics... I have no idea what I have.... the first two papers are 50% of the grade (I got a B and a B-) the final exam is 25% and then class participation and responses are 25%... I got a 10/10 on the responses... but I hardly ever participated... I'd like to think that I have a B right now... But I'm kinda thinking I'm teetering on the B-/C+ range.... wonderful. This weekend is just going to suck balls ヽ(;´д｀)ノ
But I"m done ranting... I should be attempting to study... or something.

1:42 am - The Woes of ... 男の子
yeaaaaaaaaaaaah sooo boy troubles.|
Boy 1: mentioned in the below post... I told everyone that I didn't have a crush on him anymore in hopes that they would stop bugging me about it and also in a way try and get me to get over him.... all was well until he rode be to and from UP... and the crush came back. And about 3 or so days ago, I officially admitted that I still liked him
Boy 2: ex of a friend.. that already spells trouble. The problem with this boy is that I think that any feelings for him that are developing are only doing so for two reasons. One: I"m a cuddle whore... and he'll let me lean on him and get close... Two: all of my friends seem to think that he likes me and so in turn, I"m starting to think so too and then think that I"m starting to like him back.
The problem with this situation is that if for some odd and bizzare reason they both did like me... I don't know who I would pick. They both have things that I like about them (it's kinda weird how much of their personalities match up) The scales are also very unbalenced... I see Boy 2 a shit ton more than I see Boy 1 so I've got to have more interaction with him and yeah... closeness. I've only leaned on Boy 1 once... and that was to keep the other guys from grinding on me at a party. I'm not sure how he would react.... unlike boy 2 where I know exactly how he would react... sooo yeah. I'm just one really confused Juju. I'm not sure what to really do about it.... not like there is anything that I really can do. I kinda just figure that they are both WAY out of my league and that I don't have a chance with either of them... and yeah. If I expect nothing and get nothing; I'm not dissapointed. If I expect nothing and get something; i'm excited as hell ^_^.
Either way.... I"m expecting to have changed feelings when we get back from Christmas Break... I think that if I just spend some time away from these guys... I'll get over it and stop worrying about it so much... but then again, with my luck, I'll end up seeing them over break and it will give me some new stuff to ponder over and read too deeply into. yay.
current mood: annoyed

11:21 pm - shit... not again
sooo yeah.... it's happening again. I guess this is how I know that I've finally and truely gotten over Sean... yep, you guessed it. Juju has a crush (and not just on Gackt) *shudder*|
I had forgotten what it was like to crush on a guy that is one of your friends.... and I can tell ya, I'm not liking it. I hate being so jittery... and hyper... and just gah! every time he's around! I'll do something and in the middle of it be like "julie! calm the fuck down! You're doing it again!" yeah... the loud, zany, hyper side of my personality gets multiplied by like 10 when I'm around him... and I feel like an idiot most of the time. It happens every time... get a crush, be overly obvious, and then push him away while making things akward. No good yo. The last thing I wanna do is push him away... he's like... the perfect friend.... like my male version of my Schmin kinda. I know that he'll sit there and let me blabber about things and do his best to give advice, I know I can trust him with a secret... and if I'm ever drunk off my ass somewhere and can't get home, I know I can call him to come pick me up.
So who is this new LOJL??? Well, I knew him at Beaver... but I didn't know know him. This semester, he started playing foodball with us on fridays... and I dunno... I mean, yeah, I thought he was cute... but I was still in "all boys can go to hell" mode... but LOJL has "a heart of gold" as a drunken friend so nicely put it ^_^. He really does have a great personality and he's a Film major. He's one of the few guys that passes to the girls durring football and frizbee even thought he knows that we don't usually catch it. He doesn't drink (medical problem as well as some other stuff) so he plays babysitter to the rest of us at parties. I feel bad most of the time cause he's usually the only sober one and he usually gets stuck driving everyone home... but while I've been told he hates it sometimes... I also hear that he loves the drama.... and I'm sure that he's taken enough blackmail pics and videos of all of us to be set for life. I dunno... he's just so nice and fun to talk to... almost too good to be true. But I honestly don't know him that well.... I want to know him better... but I hardly see him besides fridays and at the random party. We txt eachother every once in a while when we're bored... but eh. I dunno.
I just don't like being thrown into the storm of emotions that comes with crushing on a guy.... especially one that's your friend. I actually wish that I didn't like him... I wanted to get to know him better before I developed any sort of "romantic" feelings for him... it's not like I love him or anything... I like him a lot.... but I don't love him. I've been trying my best to not be overly obvious... and I'm doing better than I have in the past (besides some random txts that got sent to him... on accident... not good) but I still feel like I'm going to end up pushing him away and I don't want to do that.
So one day at a time I guess. And I'll do my best to ignore the "you should go for it" sayings that my friends keep throwing at me. I guess they feel that they have to. I mean, it's not like they are gonna be like "Julie, give up. You don't have a chance." Well they might... but eh. soo now that it's almost quarter to midnight and I still have a shit-ton of homework to do and a shower to take, I'ma signing off yo!
