I have less time to type this than I thought I did. Somehow today seems relaxing, even though my mind's kinda elsewhere. It's the best kind of weather outside (76 degrees, sunny, no humidity to speak of, no wind) and I felt the need to lay in the grass in the park downtown for ten minutes. I would've stayed longer if I wasn't worried about missing class--I ended up being late anyway thanks to an urge for Sprite, but hey, class was cancelled, just like the class before that, so I'm only going to two classes today and damn, that's nice. I wish I could always only go to two classes, but life (a.k.a. CofC) isn't fair.

So. In lieu of more anime meme spam of which I am sure you are all tired (I'll continue with it anyway, because I'm an individual) I thought I'd give you all a little Life Update.

Remember when I said my mom was moving? Well, she did, and very far away, but it turned out that her roommate (a friend of hers since they were both in high school) had turned into this crazy woman who got literally raging drunk almost every night. She ended up insulting my mom, me, and my mom's dog Dori one night, and my mom slapped her four times to make her shut up. It was stupid shit, too, like "Why is your daughter still dressing up for Halloween? Isn't she TWENTY-TWO?!" like that's unheard of, and calling my mom lazy when she did more in a day than Cheryl did, and all that BS. So Mom was only up there for five days before throwing in the towel. She visited her other friend Cheryl in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she thinks she might like to stay instead. Chattanooga is really beautiful and has lots of stuff to do, so if she ends up moving there, it's a helluva lot closer and we'd actually be able to go out and have fun. But, if she doesn't, she'd be only about 15 minutes away from me in a low-income housing complex that's being built, and that'd be nice too. I just want her to be happy wherever she goes, she's been wanting to get out of Charleston for something like six years.

So then, if my mom is not here (she' is visiting until tomorrow though), then who is?? ♥[ profile] zelda ♥!! It's been a little rough around the edges since I haven't lived with anyone but my mom (and technically Margaret, if you count a month-long trip as "living with" someone) and I'm not entirely sure how to be a good roommate who respects privacy and independence and all that jazz just yet, but I think I'm figuring it out bit by bit. I think ;A; It'll help once we get to actually start decorating the place the way we want, though--my mom has a LOT of stuff that's just sort of sitting around right now ^^; We plan on having a doll display area where a dining room's supposed to be =w=

I'm quite behind in school. Again. I'd managed to catch up only to swiftly fall behind once again almost immediately. I didn't have my textbooks for the first three and a half weeks, so I had like 300 pages to cover just from that time, not including actual work. I'm wondering if I should even bother continuing with the Intercultural Communications class at this point, I've managed to have only like three grades in there and I should have like, thirty. Psht. That class is literally almost entirely about racism and that's fine, but I don't think I've seen the Communications bit just yet. Also I have three group projects. THREE. Kill me now.

I'm on pain meds for my right hand. Lacey warns me that they might be downers and I might get addicted to them, so stay tuned for that possible twist!

Also I have officially lost all dignity and went as Bad Romance version Lady Gaga for Halloween.

Not the greatest picture, but this is me with my friend Kathryn at work. I want to point out that I do not have a jutting stomach here, that is my other arm, thank you. I didn't wear those heels all day, but I was in that costume from daybreak to sundown and that wig was ITCHY AS HELL. I'd worn the costume to a Market Street Saloon party the night before and the crown got all bent but I think it looks pretty darn good for having pulled it together two days beforehand XD;

Okayyy, so. I went to Florida for Christmas, and it was pretty cool. The hotel room was a suite, so the bedroom part was separate from the living-room part, and there was a balcony overlooking the ocean~ I fell asleep listening to the waves every night, which would have been really great had I not been sleeping on the COUCH. >_<

But okay, it was a nice room and Jake's family were really wacky. They're all modern-day rich hippies who drink lots of wine and eat at fancy restaurants all the time and only eat organic food, rofl. Jake's niece was really cool, and has been to Japan too so we got to talk about that~ Her mom was crazy and super-happy all the time, and kept telling me to eat well, haha. Her dad was sort of flirty though, and I was a little uncomfortable around him >> I got a big bar of dark chocolate and some other little things from them, and they took us out to eat almost every night. (I am now in love with duck meat thanks to that, dammit.) I embarrassed myself by spilling raspberry iced tea all over Jake's sister-in-law's new beaded poncho-thing she got from Sweden X_x *is super-clumsy* I have also decided that I WILL cosplay Matt at some point, because I found his goggles almost exactly at a rest stop. (How do these cosplay-items just keep falling into my lap? What's next, Matt's vest at a thrift store?) I spent a long time sitting on the beach one day reading Tramps Like Us and I just realized I might've looked like a female Matt, since I was wearing a black-and-white-striped shirt, gloves (because it was cold) and the goggles (because it was too bright) lol xD; I'll take pictures of them as soon as I feel like it again 8] Altogether I had a good time being away for a while, but now I have a TON of internet-things to catch up on. I'm glad I'm home to my dear laptop T.T
EDIT: Took a picture of me wearing the goggles (and, coincidentally, a striped shirt. I seem to have quite a bit of these.)
The lenses are orange, but also mirrored, so it's hard to tell, but I ♥ them.
lol, my hair is crap, so I tucked it into a hat >.>

My friend Jennifer turned 21 yesterday~! She's not planning on drinking or anything though, and honestly I'm glad to hear that because she can be REALLY hyper and weird, and she doesn't need alcohol adding to that, lmao. HER CAKE WAS EPIC. She wanted something themed Mello and Mikami (?! crack pairing of the year, holy shit.) So she got the people to write "sakujoo" around the border (very badly I might add) and put a chocolate bar on the cake itself. (It was supposed to LOOK like a huge chocolate bar, but apparently they did it wrong?) She also made use of the fingerpuppets I gave her, wahaha.

Mello's standing directly above the chocolate bar, and L is pressing his face against the lid trying to get to the cake, rofl ♥
Epic cake at a different (better) angle
Also, Mello has gone insane from how happy he is at finding such a large chocolate bar. He took a large bite of it and left a fingerprint, lol.

Plus! Random picspam because I feel like it!
Random photos of things about the house and me being a dork (with Mello-sunglasses?) )

Errr, I suppose I'll type up what all I got for Christmas too, because I'm trying desperately to avoid cleaning my room >->
Apparently this is the Christmas of awesome? )

ooww, I just cut my thumb ;-; Someone make it feel betteerrrr T-T
