Odd Crossplay Reasearch )

Other things on the internet:
- A place that will make buttons for you relatively affordably
- A place where I could drop $350 on a quality button-making tool
- This place has kits too.... also for $300.

On an unrelated note. Nine years ago, I was in Creative Writing and Poudre, journaled nearly a page a day by hand, had never been to Japan and never heard of LiveJournal or The Prince of Tennis. Hell, I don't think I'd ever even set foot into Jo-Ann Store 1679. I'd also never played a male character in Cosplay.
Crazy times.

Ok Apple. Two years and three iPods later... you're really starting to win me over.

It's no secret that I've loved iTunes since the moment I downloaded it. The organizational structure and the multi-lingual indexing and searching are wonderful and the playlist system appealed to me, since I'd been making monthly playlists or CDs for many many years.

My iPod/iTunes developlment, and new stuff today )

So, long story short. I love Apple and iTunes, and once I'm finished listening to these two Linguistics lectures, I think I'll listen to last weeks 'This American Life'.

[Edit Edit: I'm building a shopping list. Sweet Honey albums: "Still On the Journey", "Breaths", "Feel Something Drawing Me On" (mostly just for Waters of Babylon), "Live at Carnegie Hall" (for Denko and Wade in the Water), "Experience 101" is the newest... and I kind of want it too.]

Why, hello 4 am. How are you?

It is now approximately four hours before I shoule depart my house for work. I am still at the Alley Cat writing my paper for China.
See, I have this problem. In that she told us that we would get time in class to write, if we wanted it... and then gave us - get this - 15 whole minutes on Monday. So now I'm about 1/3 of the way into the paper , took a bit of a nap, and have moved to somewhere warmer. I am continuing to work through it, but I would feel totally justified in sitting down in class and finishing it. I don't even know what she plans to have us do the last day before break besides take the test that she decided was necessary to supplement the unit summary essay. >_<
Anyway, I can't get home to change for work and stuff until the busses start running at... later, so I'm here.

Pac. Wars news:
I got a low A on the test I thought that I'd failed. I still know I could have done better writing about Tarawa instead of Guadalcanal, but given the time issues, Im extrememly pleased with the results. I also finally swallowed my fear and talked to him about the book review today...
Me: *waiting politely for army and navy boys to finish the usual war chats* Hi... um... so, I'm still working through my book review and-
Albright: Well, get it done!
Me: So, it's still worth it to get some sort of credit if I-
Albright: Just get it done.
Me: Ok, well, that's what I needed to know. Thank you. *flees*
So yes, I'm not doomed. And this was a huge relief. Which is probably why I was not in as much of a cramming mindset to hit Long's paper with a vengance tonight. Still, I'm much better off sleep-wise than poor Chris.

It's unreal to me how close we are to Thanksgiving already. How close my JET application is to being due. How soon my graduation will be, all factors willing. Must make my Rosalia dress for that occation.

So my dominant traits are Materialism, Dependency my aversity to change and of course, my Peter Pan Complex. ^^ Maybe a bit acurate.

So... yeah. Look at me still not writing my con report. Mmmyep. I think I'm pulling an all-nighter for PacWars and China again. Because there's a test or something coming up in China. And there's a distinct possibility of me failing Pacific Wars now. Damn my self-sabotage anyway.
And I still didn't write down my work schedule, I just know I'm off tomorrow and Tues at JoAnn.

Tonight I found that I hate coming home to an empty house.
And now I turn my brain to useful things. Or to running away... still fighting to see which.

What a night. Whew.
I did sleep some last night, it was just about an hour curled up on my bench at the Alley Cat. I've had the downstairs to myself for like... many many hours now.

Paper for China done. Answering the reading q's and working on the paper for Pac Wars is the next priority (just realized that I really can't ask him to look at it, because it's due in three days. But if I finish it, I may try anyway.

I have punkin bread. And Even-san (aka 'Mysterious' Trevor) works at Alley Cat, very late at night. Mmhmm.
And Austin McGee is really sweet and I've kinda missed seeing him around. He's kindof a Zjahai-type person... or maybe Kelley from Omega. Yeah, that type.
Anywho, now on to China Hands. Must go to Path by 1 pm.

Talked with my advisor this morning. I'm set. Just the two history classes this semester (plus the requisite but unneccessary Japanese) and I'm DONE. I will join the ranks of the educated adults and get to move on. ^_______^

In other news, going back to work after a long time (read: four days) off is vaguely surreal. I felt almost out of place and incompetent again. (The fact that Michelle had just finished moving all the fabric in the front end didn't help.) But getting back into the swing of things was ok, and it was Dianna closing so we actually got out almost on time.
[profile] ladyofthegate was waiting for me outside (*hugs*), and we went over to see Clown Box at the Bas Bleu. It was awesome and there were pretty boys doing funny things and I laughed lots and was happy.

Now I'm home and have to be in at Path as early as possible tomorrow (ideally 6 or 7) to clean Colony and Maternity before work at 11. I get home as Jess leaves for Wearwolf, but hopefully between the two of us, we can get the main level cleaned into some semblance of order.
Carol and the twins come to visit from sunday on, so I'll be absent from many of the optional Japanese events and at home with babies much of next week. (子供=嬉しい・お金=いい事)

I'm getting into the point in this semester that will begin to test my will, my self-control, and my determination. Readings are steadily building, and I need to spend some serious time this weekend cleaning the house as well as scheduling and organizing all the projects (personal and academic), papers, books and activities that are coming up on me as the fall begins in ernest.

Welcome to September.

I am... I mean it's been over 20 hours since the last time I woke up... so I'm focusing really well for me on that much sleep.
Heh yeah... I really have no idea what I'm doing with this source analysis. >_<;;;

Just need to finish so that there can be "Summer Wind" tonight... and it will be SUMMER. ~~<3

[profile] reieien, I will call you, I promise. Only my weekend got eaten and then there was this... Tonight after 9, I promise. ^^;;

Platina (my laptop) is dead.
It finally happened last night around 2, the power went out, and nothing I could do to the cord would make it reconnect.
He will be in a box on the way to the repair facility tonight, but won't be back for 3-4 weeks.
That means:
-My evening/late night computer and internet access will be curtailed.
-I will be at home less in the next week, because I'll have to utilize school or my mother's computers for papers.

-[personal profile] baranoneko: Scripting for the rest of NeoRoma will have to be done in a new way or in a new location.
-[profile] ladyofthegate: Translations for Ange will have to be done at school in the FLL

I may need help recovering files once my computer gets back. I spent the past several days backing up data so I won't lose much, but 6 gigs of music is not small, and I don't own /all/ of it, just most.
I saved all my school work, translations and manga about 3 times, so that /should/ be ok. I think I saved my DiabloII characters (and ATMA stash). I'll need my BL games back, I can offer drama cds or seiyuu events in return, since I saved a lot of those.
Also, I have "Remarkable First Match - Fudoumine" and "More than Limit - St. Rudolph" raw avis up in my streamload account at the moment (needed to save them, and they were too large to burn)... so anyone that needs them just ask.

Other than that, I will try to be online with my cell (longer messages and shorter conversations only please). I will still check email as often as possible, and if I ower you money ([personal profile] rkold) I will still be able to pay you asap.

Really, what better time than finals week to lose your primary computer and internet access? ~_~

that I am a dork. For our oral interview in Japanese class [profile] ladyofthegate and I wrote out all our situations... and what better example of senpai-kouhai relations can you find besides TeniPuri? ^_^
Anyway, our situations are below the cut in Japanese... translations and further explanation forthcoming.
Hey, Fuji... about our practice... )

5 is a retelling of Ikkyuu-san no hanashi... with Atobe as the kane-mochi and Ryoma as ikkyuu-san (he /is/ the main character, couldn't leave him out entirely, you know. ^_^ Yes, we're dorks. I'll tell you what sensei thinks of all this after the interview tomorrow.

My soundtrack this morning was the Sunflower Collection, especially "H2O" (Ernst) and "Gold Rush~21st Century" (Olivie).

So this morning I was /very/ tired, but I'm getting better. The kanji section of the R&W final kicked me in the face, but the second section wasn't nearly as bad.
Thanks to Tammy being a wonderful, generous person, I have a working CD player for a little while and got to listen to Kimeru's "the beginning" album as well as a couple of Drama CDs.
Short Rants )
Possibly more on those later. Right now I have a paper to write for Hester, and oddly I have little regret about how I've spent the past few days. I can't even make myself worry about money, or rather, don't want to. ^_^
Off I go to rant about boundaries and such... ah, Japanese culture.

[Lyrics/Kanji] for Current Music. Shimokawa Mikuni just rocks all over the place. I've yet to hear a song of hers that I don't like. ^_^

I won't ask why. I know the answer. So... my last unit test in R&W was not not good. As such, I am not allowed to read fic for a week. Of course, this is after I'd just gotten back into reading after nearly a week without... and Liddell-sama updates. *sigh* Yeah, I know, my own damn fault. At least I finished "In the Card's" and "Circle" yesterday.
In other news:
The katsudon at the cafeteria tasted a little funny today... somehow not quite as good, maybe it was just in my head.
I'm sad that I have to take Seitokai Shikkobu II back to Tsutaya tommorow. I should have just saved up and bought it. *cries*
I am /not/ actually getting sick. I have decided this.
Assuming my money from Carol comes through, I get to go to an actual Japanese cosplay event this weekend. Woohoo! I have no idea what takes place at an event, but I'll have to read through more TB and brush up on my Hokuto-speak.
Meh, class now, whatever.

My spanish proffessor is going to kill me. Or I'm just going to fail. Probably the later. She's more mellow that that. I think I donfuse her because she always sees me either outside Beeken-sensei's office, or like today, talking to the 日本人の先生.
Starting today. I will get all my homework done. Period. No more of this procrastinating and "forgetting". And we'll see if I can pass this class for real.
Now I have to go catch up on Japanese too... and work on my kanji notebook, which is so many pages behind...
And then get stuff for dinner tonight. Yep. Thank heaven for Bawls. Caffiene is good.

Which Saiyuki Boy are you?

Which Saiyuki boy are you?

Take the Saiyuki Quiz at

(of course, I changed the one I was torn on and got Hakkai, but I'll wait and let Kat post that pretty image. ^_^ I'm assuming she'll get Hakkai.)

Anyway... I don't want to babysit. I want to help Carol but not be over there. And I know I failed my matricies test. Really badly. I thought I knew what I was doing... but apparently not. I knew the first steps, but not the more in dpeth stuff that she didn't review last night. And I hate complex numbers. They're evil.
The cute opening song from the 10th Anniversary thing is stuck in my head... "Watashi no hitomi wa, sora ni naru..." *sigh* Yeah. Gotta go home now I think, then get rescue my car and take it to the shop. Then get carol's swimsuit back to her. Then maybe go to academy if I have time... which I won't probably.
Right. So... new topic... um... roses? Ah forget it, I'd better go anyway.

Yep. Well, if that essay gets better than a C, I'll be in shock. I think it sucked. Though Kat said it was good and I was happy with the revisions that mom and I went over. Anyway, I reset my computers DVD-Rom to region 2 again... I can only change it one more time. Oh well. And I watched the DVD... and gods it is just so cool. *sigh*
I noticed more on the computer screen for some reason. Like that Nao keeps looking at Yuka. Especially in "Millenium", Yuka really rushed her line and you could see on her face that she knew it. And Nao looked at her all worried-like and then smiled. It must be so surreal to be with someone and be having an experience like performing together. I can't even imagine.
Anyway, that was mu bit of SeraMyu rant. I have been spending so much money lately, I hadn't even thought of it... I need to stop or I'm in big trouble for books in fall and the con... and maybe YaoiCon? *hopes*
Anyway. Yah... Audrey ([profile] caesia_minerva) finished her movie Utena costume... from what I can see, it rocks.
Right, work now, math later... then more Myu... wai! *dances*

Yay! My essay is pseudo-done! Now if anyone has time off between 11:50 and 12 tommorow and feels like reading through it to give me a bit more feedback, that'd be great. If not, then my teacher gets this version. It'll be ok. Now I just have to do my math hw and study for the test on tuesday. *dances* I'm really hyper for some reason... shouldn't be. Seeing as earlier I was in rather bad shape:

Essay far from done. There is no longer a mac lab on campus anywhere. They took the one from Webber and moved in to Anatomy/Zoology, but it doesn't open until next week. Which means no opening of my disc, no working on the page and a half I already had wirtten (and the outline I had with it) Looks like I'm in trouble again. *suprise, suprise*
And there's D&D tonight, Exalted Saturday, and another M229 test on Tuesday, and my final essay due Monday. I love this.

In that way where the title could be a reference to RENT... or not... and you have to think about it, because I don't think I can.
I didn't get to watch the DVD even once last night, because Rob was in bed (and should have been asleep but wasn't) (mada neranaindeshimaimashita)? I need to keep practicing my japanese, or I'll lose it...
I just finished up at work. Two loads all nice and Autoclaved! W00t!
I'm starvng and worried about my paper. Lucky for me, she pushed back the final due date until Mon and the rough Draft until Friday.
I know I should go home and work... but I really don't want to and I'll be stuck in the house Thursday night (RRC - with babies). Luckily Salem will be there, so that'll be fun. Brad and Thorin and ppl might think about coming over then too... I'll ask Salem.
Right. So... yeah. Buh-bye.
