Not really gonna answer this but
FFFFFTTTT THERE SHOULD BE A QUESTION MARK AT THE END OF THIS FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


/grammarnazi

OKAY SO. I haven't updated in forever because I was sort of miserable. Not like a lot of people around me, but really more preoccupied with my own thoughts than anything. My boss SCREAMED at me over the phone a few weeks ago over a supposed missing $20, even though we don't count inventory and it's really easy to write down the wrong thing, and since through his hissy fit he pretty much accused me of stealing, I decided it's about damn time to quit the stupid Market. Anything would be better than dealing with tourists every day and having to drag myself down there and set everything up at nine in the morning and IMMMEDIATELY be expected to be ready for an onslaught of questions and invasions of personal space. So I decided, this summer, I'm going to get another job to supplement working the weekends at the Market (because, not gonna lie, the money ain't bad at all) and hopefully build up a little nest egg. Of course, jobs aren't easy to snatch, so I set out today looking all spiffy and clean after buying a bunch of foundation and coverup, and walked down King Street to see who's hiring.

I was heading for Sushi Hiro, a tiny Japanese place that's been there forever, because I saw a Help Wanted sign in the window a few days ago. I've known the owner, Hide-san, for years, since before he even owned the place. I once frequented his food cart he parked in North Charleston and man it was gooood. So I thought working for him might not be bad. And I'd get to practice my Japanese! On the way down there though, I checked out other places. A lot of retail stores need summer help, so I noted especially Bijuju (a jewelry place) and Robot Candy Co., which is this neato quirky candy store with a pseudo-Japanese aesthetic. But guess what? I didn't even need to look in all those places.

I walked into Sushi Hiro, inquired about the job, and Hide-san looked at the manager from behind his sushi bar and said "Oh, she's hired. I know her. Well? Hire her!" I didn't even need to fill out the entire application. He even said it'd make it easier for him since I know some Japanese.

Holy crap guys. I did not think it'd be that smooth. Life really is all about who you know, isn't it? Why the hell am I in school again? So I'm starting training Thursday at 5:30 (omg I can sleep in omg) and hoping I can figure out transportation afterward--I'm not sure when they close. I told him I couldn't start seriously until after exams. I really hope it's not awful. I know the people who work there are always happy and Hide-san is really nice, and it's not like I could get really overwhelmed with customers since only 30 or less can fit in the place all at once, but I'm nervous about disappointing Hide-san or not getting the rest I need, you know? But eh, I'll do my best!!

Then, after strolling down King Street in a sort of daze, I was stopped by a guy who said I looked "artsy" and handed me a thick book. Turned out he was a monk spreading the message of Transcendentalism and meditation. I've always wanted to know more about Transcendentalism after reading Thoreau and could use some peaceful guidance this summer with two jobs, so damn that's convenient, isn't it? What a weirdly nice day.

Oh, and because I'm damn proud of myself: last night at 2 am, I discovered that I had a 3-4 page paper due by 8, the teacher does not accept late papers and it's 10% of my grade at that. So I was like "well fuck." Had to be on a communication theory not covered in class (not many weren't, teach did a fine job skirting everything the way an Intro class should.) BUT I found one finally--Uses and Gratifications--and went to work. Even though she only asked for one, I found FIVE sources, and actually found that I agreed with it. I think I've found my paper-writing technique. Every hour and a half or so or when my attention starts to wane, rest my eyes for 15 minutes tops, then get back to it. I was done writing it by 6:30. That might not be too impressive to some people, I guess, but considering I had no idea what I was writing about or that it was due and one source had to be a scholarly article? I think I kicked that paper's ass.

Whoaho, I am Rambly McGee today. Not sure if I'm gonna LJ cut this. I kinda feel like suddenly assaulting your flist after not saying a damn thing for months. Buuut if someone complains, I'll do it. Otherwise, deal with it.
Wooooooooooo, Dean out!

lol can you tell I'm not taking my Ritalin? lolol orz

P.S. I think I've found my new favorite eBay store.

Asian Studies class was cancelled because my hopelessly German teacher has had some sort of recurring throat issues--like, 6 weeks' worth. I feel for the guy (he sounds so bad his Indian wife apparently teases him about he must be either turning into a woman or a eunuch) but I'm glad for the free time. I managed to swindle my theater quiz onto Wednesday, which gives me time to read "The Cherry Orchard" by Chekov, but man, the online version I'm reading is such an awkward translation. I can barely follow what they're doing. Ah well, I can read it during freetime tomorrow in between sorting through my mom's stuff and transporting things to Jake's house for storage. I'm looking forward to having my dolls and mannequin torso again! ♥
So anyway.

Day 5 - Anime character you feel you are most like (or wish you were)
This is HARD. There are plenty of characters I relate to, or have aspects of my personality, but there isn't one who's just all me. So, I present you with an equation.

= me. lol i am a sexy bishojo, no? Jonathan suggested the name Haruri Victoria as a new OC of mine and yes I did draw her and no you can't see because I don't have a scanner, hoohoohoo~

Weird combo, I know. If someone wants an explanation, I'll give it to them, but right now I'll be late for class if I don't leave ASAP |3 Ohh, college, interrupting my internets since 2006.

P.S. I chose that pic of Haruhi because that's how I'm wearing my hair right now, whee~!

The ONLY damned video editing program I could find for Windows that supports HD .mov files very reliably CRASHES EVERY THREE MINUTES. I only WISH I was exaggerating. You guys, I've been trying to edit this stupid project since SATURDAY. There are less than ten minutes' worth of scenes I have to edit, I'm about at the five or six-minute mark. This is WITHOUT the soundtrack or dialog cards (it's silent) AND FUCK IF THE STUPID PROGRAM DIDN'T JUST LOSE TRACK OF EVERY FILE ALL OF A SUDDEN. I keep uninstalling things because it tells me "there may be no memory" (thanks to super-huge HD file sizes, I imagine) and I chose Quicktime as one program to uninstall since I never use it and VLC plays all the files it does. WELL WHOOP DEE DOO, BAD IDEA. I just reinstalled it and if God loves me that fixed the problem, but SHIT, this thing is due by FOUR and I have an exam before that!! No, I haven't studied for it, I've been too carried away with this film final and this class might actually count towards whatever major I end up with, and--ARRRGGHHH

someone please stop time for me? T_____T
bip_bebop: (FINE)
WHY DID I LET MYSELF FIND THIS WHY. BECAUSE I NEED MORE DISTRACTIONS, RIGHT.

>:|

Uugghh I am failing soo hard at keeping up with schoolwork...I feel like I've lost any inner motivation I had earlier in the year. All I want to do is fandom or cosplay-related and damnit I have to be careful about that, because that's what happened a while back and it wasn't good for my health. No sleep is never good. At least now I pass out on the couch and get lots of bad quality sleep. Back then I'd be up all night on the internet, then nab a few dream-filled z's in the hour before I had to get up and start getting ready. In this case quantity>quality, FYI, because I'd be so strung out with no rest that I didn't even realize it. I kinda miss that, but it was a hard thing to do to get back to "normal." I don't want to go through that again, y'know? Bleh.

Consequentially, I'm working in the morning, woo. I have two jobs now, one working Tuesday and Thursday at a little store for $8 an hour starting at 11 and the other at the Market like I've been doing. My boss lowered the commission rate so I get more money more often, but we also have to be there by nine AM now, which means I'll be getting there 45 minutes early and won't be leaving until 6:30 PM. If he doesn't raise my pay, I'll be working for the same rate as at the store but for a lot longer and a lot more work. My mom earned $50 in commission today, so that's pretty rad, but that's an exception. I'm kind of hung up on money right now, can you tell? Le sigh. I hate being poor.

Now excuse me, I'm off to make a pointed effort at actually falling asleep in bed right off as opposed to moving upstairs for an hour after having slept in a chair with no blanket all night. *salute*
bip_bebop: (damsel?)
You guys, I want stuff.
Like, expensive stuff, and pretty bad.

This happens every six to eight months or so: I'll buy (or try to buy) a ton of stuff in a short period of time and have a hard time making myself stop. It's never anything I don't want and often stuff I've wanted for a long time, so I wouldn't consider it a compulsion, but it sometimes is really frustrating when trying to balance necessities with wants. It's almost like a ton of things I want come along all at once on purpose. On-sale plaid skirts for instance. I mean, on the one hand, I know that if I waited, I wouldn't be able to get half the things I buy ever again if I don't get them right then (such as things from [livejournal.com profile] vk_sales) so I shouldn't feel bad for snatching them up. But on the other hand, it depletes my funds for other, more expensive things like this fucking gorgeous Dollmore BJD I will never be able to own. (My dream doll is Evgeneia, who's been sold out since I discovered his existence, but Thinking Kara is in stock and BEAUTIFUL, damnit.) I don't usually like dolls with half-closed eyes, but they work really well on him! Usually the dolls I like from Dollmore are limited-edition and it suuuccckksss, but I can't help it. Haneol and Kyle are like the most beautiful face sculpts ever, aarrrrggh.

Oh, I got off on a tangent there. But, you know, [livejournal.com profile] daily_doll isn't really helping my spending issues, orz. All I want to do is buy clothes for my one poseable doll, Audrina (cute 9-inch doll clothes are really hard to find fyi) and stare with absurd want at all the lovely bjds people post. It's gotten to the point where I'm just about willing to take out a low-limit credit card just to buy a damn doll. I worry myself. Especially since this isn't an issue only with dolls, which would be pretty easy to get over what with not owning one and them costing $600 or so, but it's mostly with clothes and manga (Your & My Secret and Otomen are super-addicting) so I see stuff I want ALL OVER THE PLACE. Since I've procured pretty much all I want from King St. and Barnes & Noble, I think it might start getting better. I hope. But I still have a pair of Double Decker boots and h.NAOTO legwarmers from [livejournal.com profile] vk_sales to pay for, and less than $200 in my bank account.

--must not transfer savings account funds must not transfer savings account funds must not transfer savings account funds--

Geez. I shouldn't be so focused on material possessions and more focused on seriously studying for Japanese, because I am not retaining much of anything I learn and that's a problem. It's the ONLY class I can foresee using in the future, and yet I rarely go over anything. That needs to change. Any study-tips, flist? Keep in mind that I have a constant ringing in my ears now for some reason and thus require white noise.
And now I have the hiccups. JOY.

EDIT: It was a mistake to join the [livejournal.com profile] steamfashion comm right now because it linked to this site and therefore THIS FANTASTIC PIECE OF CLOTHING THAT I WANT VERY VERY BADLY *SOB*
bip_bebop: (Death Groceries)
Finally got through watching Metal Gear 2 (yes, watching, because I generally fail at video games) and now I'm so glad, because I finally understand what all the great crack is about XD For some reason, Otacon is like my favorite. I say "like my favorite" because I can't honestly point to someone I like more than the others, but I have some strange attachment to that nerdy scientist. I want icons of that hilarious comic you showed Jonathan btw, Emma. :T

I showed my mom how to play Little Big Planet earlier. It was fun! She grasped how to jump in three dimensions a lot faster than I did, eheh xD; She might actually play with me sometime. I hope so, it would be nice to have something to do together with her outside of watching movies.

Also, I feel sick. I don't think it's really a cold, but my nose is constantly stopped up or runny and I'm sneezing a lot more often than usual. My head feels stuffy too, and if I'm not careful about taking my decongestants and ibuprofen, I get pretty miserable. I don't know how I'm going to fare at school tomorrow, but I can't take a day off this early when I can't be sure I'll get an excused absence. Blah. Stupid. Wish me luck, please >^<

Not really that interesting, but recorded for posterity. )


And an also pretty retro but still applicable DN meme, stolen from Kasumi:

The answers to this would have been very different last year at this time. )

I don't want to spend money on textbooks. I don't want textbooks. I don't like them much, because all too often teachers rely too much on them and use class time to rant about historical philosophy...*stares at old, ranty, Woody Allen-like history professor who would be fairly entertaining if not for all the assignments he's promising*
Oh, sigh. Onto Japanese homework.

It occurs to me that this journal here would probably actually prosper if I were to join Twitter and have things posted via that LoudTwitter dealie.

But I can't decide which is the lesser of two evils: either this journal being rarely updated as it is, or it being spammed to death with my stupid whims and random thoughts that occur to me that aren't really worth being posted, but that I feel I have to share anyway.

Examples of such beauts are as follows (without adhering to the character limit.)

"My mom replaced all our soap bars in the house with liquid soap. I have no idea why."
"A glass of warm milk and a toasted cheese sandwich is surely the remedy for my current caffeine-induced insomnia."
"Re: Firefox--to update or not to update? I don't like the new look but I'm sick of malware."
"I suddenly want to post a lot about dolls. This is a new thing for me."
"Leonidas wants to go out. It's almost 3 AM. What the hell's out there for him at this hour?!"
"My mouth tastes weird. It is clean. I don't understand."

I don't think I'm well-suited to being a Twit. However, is the slim chance that decent things will slip in worth risking all the dumb? I doubt I'll join, but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about it.

Ugh. School in the morning. Do not want.

P.S.
DJ Hero is apparently catering to my tastes. Techno+neon+Queen+rave=win.

MAGGIE. YOU BETTER FREAKING WATCH THIS. I THOUGHT OF YOU IMMEDIATELY FOR SOME REASON
Feel free to feel weird that I did :D; Something about opera reminds me of you o-o


I'm settling into my new schooltime pretty...well, considering. I keep showing up late to classes due to one thing or another--likely because I CAN'T WAKE UP AT SIX AM TO GET TO AN EIGHT AM CLASS TO SAVE MY LIFE ARRRGGHH. I hate that I really wanted to take Photojournalism, because 8 AM is the ONLY available timeslot. I have two hours of ~free time~ after that, one of which I'm trying to allot for napping (the library is just such a fab place to nap.) Then I go to the history 101 class it was hellish to get into because CofC dropped me for nonpayment and I couldn't get back in. I had to ask the teacher's permission to be let in, tell the history chairman, get put into the class I was in originally but missed two days of because I was going to the OTHER class, beg the chairman to put me into the class I'd been attending, and finally withdraw from the first class again. Yeah. It's that complex to get into a requisite when you get dropped. So...like, make sure your bill is paid, okay, aspiring students~? After that, another hour of free time. Then class till 3. I consider it a good schedule, and I think having those hours in-between classes will really come in handy later this semester. I just have to keep up with all the work. Yosh!

(I'm off to go finish the Skypeia arc of One Piece |3 This show is way better than I thought it'd be.)

P.S. NO VOCALOID VIDEO TODAY BECAUSE I ALREADY SPAM YOU GUYS WITH ENOUGH VIDEOS AND THAT OURAN ONE IS FUCKING WIN.

/quote from Kim Possible on the telly behind me

I'm going back to school starting 8 in the morning today. What can I say? I am not thrilled. I'm looking forward to photojournalism, but all else is promising to be all-consuming. My Japanese is entirely rusty, and 201 is supposedly the hardest section to complete, so I have to whip myself into shape right quick or else be lost in the course. I haven't used anything past basic math since my freshman year, so algebra will be hellish. Not to mention, my damn school just can't give me a smooth transition from break to semester for ANYTHING, so instead of acknowledging the fact that I've been signed up for history class since the beginning of summer, they just now kick me out of my classes for nonpayment. I managed to get most of it cleared up--apparently my Fafsa wasn't turned in--EXCEPT for history, and all the classes are closed except ones I can't take due to lack of prerequisites. So I'm going in the morning to three classes as opposed to four, meaning I have like...four hours of free time in between taking classes.

...and now that I look to see what my exact schedule is, I can't access the stupid website because it closes at 11, which is the dumbest fuckin thing I've ever heard for a WEBSITE to do, and doesn't open again until my first class starts. So I'm going in with no idea where I have to be. Fan-fucking tastic.

I'm in a bad mood.

It's been a year today since I last saw Amy.
I want her back. So, so bad. I can't even express it. I know it seems dumb to a lot of people to go on about pets the way most people go on about people, but...I really, really loved that dog. This year has been really stupid and empty without her, even though we have a dew dog, Dori, who is precious and I think is the only dog my mom could've brought home without me hating her for it. I can't think about this. I'm crying already because I'm stupid and nostalgic like that, and I'm so damn tired of this school making me regret not going to my first college pick instead, and I have no sweet creature to comfort me like Amy did. Artemis (one of my cats) does seem to follow me around a lot nowadays and always comes up to me if I cry, and I love him for it, but that doesn't change that I lost someone really close to me and can never get her back.

It's my mom's birthday today. I haven't been able to get her anything. I feel like a douchebag.

I'm tired of not knowing what I want to do. In life, I mean. Well...in the career world, I mean. I'm technically a senior in college with no major and no credits towards any sort of major at all. I've managed to pick classes so bloody all over-the-place that they have nothing to do with each other and therefore I have nothing that even points to anything specific I could work towards. How I managed that is really kind of impressive in a dumb way. I think after this semester I'm going to be forced to pick something...but there's just...nothing that interests me enough. I'm still clinging to the idea that something exciting is going to happen to me, I guess. I should really get over that.

THIS SONG IS ABOUT MEEEEEEE

YOU GUYS
I AM DONE WITH FINALS AND SCHOOL
for this year anyway
CELEBRATION!

Just so you guys know, the biggest reason I haven't been on here is because I've become *gasp* A BETTER STUDENT, meaning I actually study now, so it's been taking up all my time X_x I haven't really been having a ton of fun or anything behind your backs, honest ;3; In fact, I've been YouTubing more than ever and have filled up one and a half playlists (=300 videos) with Vocaloid, which most of you don't seem to be too interested in, so even that's nothing to envy, lol ^^;
Grrgh, I studied geology for 12 hours straight with a cumulative 1.5 hours worth of break~~~I want to draw and catch up on everyone and upload songs for Kasumi but~~~nnghhhh~~~*tilde raep*

*passes out*


P.S. I'm going to have a Vocaloid-video-a-day until someone else realizes how awesome it is ò3ó

This one looks really weird to see at first, but it's a song about Miku--the girl--reflecting on her untimely death and how she should've been given more time to leave achievements behind. She's slowly dying as the song progresses, thus why the 'reality' around her gets so trippy. It gets stuck in my head a lot these days ;____;
bip_bebop: (girl!Mello's TTLY FIXY)
SO I HAVEN'T UPDATED IN LIKE TWO MONTHS ALMOST. SUE ME. IRL IS STUPID AND NEEDY. BAAAHH.
I MISS YOU GUYSSSS TT___TT


Okay, so like...IRL stuff has involved cleaning and decorating my room, which is looking quite awesome so far, and I shall post before-and-after pictures when it's totally complete. I need to print out Mello and Matt pictures to plaster all over my Bishonen Wall. This is going to be expensive (for high-quality pictures from Kinko's) and very fun to do *__* ♥ I'm looking forward to it~
What I'm not looking forward to is starting school up again, because I'm gonna, and that means much much less hanging around doing nothing and a lot more srs bsns, for which I've never really cared. However, my classes seem okay, consisting of Mass Media, Drawing 1, Dynamic Earth (geology), and Electronic Publishing and Design (whatever the hell that is.) I have to get up at the asscrack of dawn to get to the first class on time (8 in the fucking morning is not the best time to see my happy face) so I'm hoping to change to a better-suited timeslot once things get going. Ugh.

And...all right, I uh...got the doujinshi I won last round, and overall I am one happy clam. I finally got my paws on "Love Traveling" *omgomgomgfinally etc* and [livejournal.com profile] kasumi_, thank you so so much for helping me out with getting "Love Love Mix"! OMG Luummm I still can't believe you let me have SAW's "Waremono no Chi" ;~; Why are you guys so damn awesome?! ♥♥♥ I swear, you spoil me so bad *cling-hug* (btw, [livejournal.com profile] kasumi_, your book is in the mail :3) I also got "Kidding Kitchen" by Machi (cute and silly), "Dotsundere" by Dosakusa Violence (I adore anything this doujinka does), "Neo-Libido" by Palindrome (good story), and 8Pochi's "Return Graphics Book."
Waremono is girl!Mello and ohhh man, it's great! It's the same formula with most girl!Mello stories, he wakes up female and doesn't even realize it until he tackles Matt, starts molesting him, and Matt's like "...uuhhh..." XD The whole time, Matt's trying to get Mello to let him have sex in his spiffy new chick-body, but I guess Mello's too freaked out to let him; eventually they do the usual position, but Matt fondles Mello's girly bits, makes him bleed, and has a horror-movie/traumatizing moment of realization or something. I don't know, it's awesome. There are drawings at the end by the artist in my icon, of everyone genderswitched--L, Light, Matt, Mello, and Near--in different kinky situations that entertain me greatly, aside from Near's, which scares me somewhat.

Definitely a good batch, overall.
EXCEPT.
Do not read if you're easily squicked by graphic ideas. )

That typed, I don't know when I'll be able to reply to everyone's comments that've backed up even worse since my last entry--I have 171 emails backed up, mostly LJ-related, so please forgive me for being a crappy replier. T____T I might possibly get some done tomorrow before the RPG, so here's hoping x-x

EDIT: LUM, YOU SHOULD OWN MY SOUL BY NOW ASEI;LDRKJF THANK YOU EIGHT BILLION TIMES OVER FOR BEING SO EFFIN' AMAZING.
