It's super effective!

What a nice relaxing day today was. Mostly. :3

I woke up at a reasonable time, but lounged a little. I love to lounge. I get to lay in my robe, and PJs and play my DS. It's lovely.

I got up and changed, and scurried out the door to run some ever so mysterious errands (Mom's birthday is tomorrow, hint hint). Took a few hours, cause I had more than one stop. I actually made... four stops. Yeah. I am, though, as a result of said errands, the proud new owner of number 151, thank you very much.

Had a budding headache when I got home, which freaked me out. So I popped one of my headache pills (don't worry, they're aren't addictive, at all) and undid my pony tail. And read some comics for a few hours.

Now it's late, and tomorrow is my last Sunday in the Stanford 1st ward *sob* and then I'm in the Monta Vista ward *yay* so I'll be hopping in the shower in a moment. And... that's about it!

Bye for now!

Hurray hurray

And so ends my first week back in school. I still enjoy it! Which isn't much of an accomplishment, actually. I'd be sad if I didn't enjoy it. And now I feel like I'm rambling.

On to greener subjects! Like... um... I got my Student ID card! Finally! Took two years, but I did it. Ha!

And I have no classes tomorrow, which pleases me to no end. I want to get my homework done, watch The Village (I still haven't T_T), and paint.

Actually. I want to paint right now. Hm! I think I shall. Fo sho.

Dancing with myself

This is weird. It's 9:30 at night, pitch black out, and I can hear birds chirping like the sun is coming up. Crazy birds. X)

So, second day of classes. Phew. Long day! But... good. Anthro was good. Discovered a girl I knew in the class, so I got to sit next to her and feel less alone. Plus the guy next to me was so funny and nice.

And Speech seems good. The teacher is hilarious and raucous. She isn't going to give us a final or a midterm--says the class is about us learning and understanding ourselves. If we're comfortable with ourselves, communication will be easier. I will definitely like it.

Sociology seems like it'll be a battle for my beliefs and personal politics, but it'll be so interesting, and I'll have to think so hard about the world and what affects it.... it'll be really good.

And I got into Trig! Yay! The teacher is really articulate, and interesting. He seems like he'll be awesome. The room is clean and bright too. And rather than a tiny desk, I have a big one that I share with the person next to me. Basically, this class will be the opposite of my last Trig course. Super!

All in all, I like my teachers. They're all bright, good people, who are dedicated to their subjects and determined to help us improve. They're all treating us like college students, not high schoolers, and I respect them. I hope this all keeps up and they don't let me down. But I don't think they will. :D

We watched the season premier of Bones tonight. And though House was also on again, we're all a little tuckered out. And it's still on right now, anyway. We'll watch it tomorrow. I also want to finally watch The Village. While there's day light, of course.

Okay, I should be asleep soon, so.... nighto!

As time goes by

Awesome. I'm finally FINALLY back in school. Golly, it has been so boring without it! Sheesh.

I had Anthro today, which was cool. The teacher is fun, and seems bright and interesting. I MUST stay focused this quarter. I cannot get distracted! >:-[

But seeing as it's my only class on Mondays and Wednesdays, I've a whole day to spend now. Mom and I are going to buy my books, though, which will be nice! :D And then I can study for anthro. And then I will *gulp* watch The Village. While there's day light!!!!!! Or I'll die of fright! T_T

Eek eek!

On the headache front, I have no headaches if I take my medicine on time. If I miss a dose, or I'm late on one, it comes back. Super fun, eh?

Ad Libs

I'm really [adjective] of these [physical ailments]. I'm [1st adjective], too, but I really love [cute male nickname]. I also love [food], but I'm not allowed to enjoy it. Lame!

I didn't do much today, other than [verb] fitfully, take [1st physical ailment] medicine, and babysit [cute male nickname] all day. He was such an [positive creature], hardly [verb], ate all his food, and [verb] galore.

I have suddenly heard a [adjective] sound! That makes me want to [verb] upstairs and [another verb].

I may have a big nasty head ache, but when I saw that am number 1 on the wait list to my math class....

In other news, I went to the doctor about my headaches yesterday. She thinks I have migraines. Hm. I thought so too. She gave me some prescription medicine to take. I'm supposed to keep a headache journal, too. And take the meds. And come back in a few weeks. -_- Super.

So I woke up this morning in a whole lot of pain, took the meds, and went back to bed. Whatever. My head feels better, but I think it's from the Dr. Pepper I took. Ho hum.

I painted yesterday, too. Been working on a painting for my sister and her family. She asked me to do it a while ago (year) and now I'm getting it done again. Hurray!

A change in plans

Or I would paint outside, if my easel was within reach. Rather than in the back of garage behind a bunch of heavy objects.

I suppose I could appeal to my parents on the stance that my brother painted in the same bedroom, on the same table while he lived in it. And if he was allowed to, why not I? This painting is small detail work, so it's essentially the same. And, my paints aren't in small buckets, open top and watery. Mine would be on a flat tray or in tubes. NOT watery. Not tip-overable. No sire.

But seeing as today does not appear to be very paint worthy.. And I feel the need to be productive... I may read. Or watch a movie. Sheesh, why do I feel like I'm neglecting something important?

Painting is fun!

I want to paint today. I might dig out my paints and canvases and have a go. I need to finish the Temple. I also want to start a project I've been thinking about. :3

I can paint outside. Nice and clean. Yeah. ^_^

Last monday before school

7 days before school starts. ^_^ I'm actually excited!

Best blog post ever!

Ha... Good times.

I slept in way too late today. I got up at, I think, 1:30? Ugh. Ugh! UGH! Wretched. I need to not sleep in that late. No wonder I had a head ache all day. Sheesh.

I went down to 24 Hour Fitness and looked around. I'm pretty interested in joining, for sure. It's so close, and seems pretty good. And it wouldn't be too expensive. :) I found a 7-day trial membership online, so tomorrow I'll go in and work out a bit. If I like it, I'll go the rest of the week. And if that all is good, then I'll really push Dad for the membership. But, I'm sure it'll be good. The employees seems really nice, and they offer free Yoga classes on Monday evenings for their members. It all seems to be so perfect. I hope it works out.

Ran some errands today, too. Wanted get a little something somewhere, but they didn't have it. Maybe I can ask them to contact me if they get one. Or I can buy one online. That seems more likely to happen.

Awesome, well, I'm tired. I've just showered and washed up for bed, so I think I will actually GO to bed. But first...

Happy birthday, Gwen! :3 Yay! Yay! It's your birthday! Hope it was a good one! <3

Your personality test results came back

As I prepared for sleep tonight (which took a very long time, due to my sheer exhaustion), I realized that I really am not in shape. I'm not fat, or over weight, but I'm not in shape. And that's not good for me. I already knew I wanted to join a gym, but now I know for sure. Monday, I'll go check out 24 hour fitness, which is right around the corner from my house. Maybe it's good.

Today, though, was good. Or rather, yesterday was. Er.... hm. Saturday! Was good.

I baby sat Brady in the morning, and he was oh-so-pleasant and cuddly. He ate two bottles, had two naps, smiled, and coo'd. He was marvelous.

I hopped in the shower around 1PM, to get ready to go out. And at 3:30, I was out the door and on my way to Brian's. He, Justin, and I picked up Sachi,and the four of us scurried up to San Francisco to attend the Professional Volley Ball tourney. That was really cool, actually. I was a little lost at first, simply because Volleyball was always a little vague to me, but I got really into it and soon we were all cheering like crazy! It was super fun, and SUPER cold. We were all very numb. Br!

And then, it was back to Palo Alto. We were SO tired, but it was only 9 by the time we got back, so we joined Whit's good bye party, and had a blast! It turned into a dance party, and there was a whole lot of crazy dancing and pictures taken. I was so insanely out of it, I would have thought I was drunk, were I not mormon and completely sober. D'oh! X)

The worst part of the entire night, was the drive home. I was partially bummed about Whit leaving, distracted by my thoughts, tired, and my knees hurt crazy bad. And to make it all better? 280 S was bumper-to-bumper traffic. At 11:30 at night. Not cool! I could see the red snake curving out of sight! And there were three, open, yet full, lanes. One lane--just one--was blocked off. Gr! I had to get off at El Monte, and drive El Camino to 85, just to get home. I didn't even get home until 12:15... Gr.

But, even though that was an entirely too frustrating situation, I'm still very happy and tired. My day was marvelous and I had such a good time in the city.

I'm going to pass out in my bed, before I pass out in my chair.

Hate headaches

Blar. I have another migraine today. -_- Probably from the cake and soda I had at the party yesterday. Lame.

Dan and I went to lunch at this Fish 'n Chips places called "Race Street" on (you guessed it) Race Street. Trés good! I'm nice and full.

Tomorrow there's a BBQ I want to go to, so I'll see if I can swing it.

For now, I'll lay down.

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


I'm looking for suggestions on how to be oneself.

This was a good day. Tidied my room a bit more! Relaxed. Enjoyed a birthday party. Yeah. Life's good. Good.

Tomorrow I have lunch with Dan before he goes back to school (which I ma way too cool for--until the 24th).

Tra la la!

My mind is a flutter of images and words. That's how I get when I think about my story. My big, beautiful story.... <3

I need to get it done. I need to really start it. I have the first chapter outlined, but that's not really much in comparison... Mostly, I do character designs and backgrounds. I want to type up planetary histories/backgrounds and such. It's one thing to draw someone out, it's another to know them entirely.

Like Litote. She's so beautiful and has such an amazing story.

I must work more on the story. Must do it...



Things to do before I start school (updated)

I start school on September 24. That's very exciting. I'm taking 17 quarter hours worth of courses, so I'm going to die. Ah well... It'll be worth it.

But I have things I'd like to get done before I start school. Big things. Important things. Let's go!

[x] Make a pie
[x] Giveaway a pie (I took it out in public)
[x] Make my room comfortable
[ ] Catalog rock collection (photos, labels)
[ ] Start drawing the "big project"
[ ] Finish the books stacked on my nightstand
[ ] Have a consistent sleeping schedule
[ ] Sell all old school books
[ ] Obtain a large beanbag (buy or make)
[x] Buy at least one new skirt/dress
[x] Buy at least one new shirt
[ ] Buy white converses (if funds are willing), and perfect them

Lots to do. I should like to get most of them done-- realistically, I won't get them all finished. But some are more important to me than others and shall be driven towards first.

You're not allergic.

Current status: 129/150 and 85/150

Tomorrow being Monday, I have many decisions to decide. I believe I should like to go to FHE tomorrow, as well as clean the upstairs with my Mum. If I manage to get myself to FHE, I hope I remember to take care of something important.

I would like to get some drawing done, based off that script Gwen and I perfected, this week. I should very much like to hang out with said Gwen.

Also hoping I ride my bike a bit. That'd be healthy.


I will miss my ward. I have decided that. Today I saw them all scattered about, chatting it up, and I suddenly missed them. I won't see them every week once this month ends. I'll hardly see them at all. See them if they invite me to parties and et cetera.

But, I will be with my old ward again. Monta Vista ward is a good ward and full of people I love.

There's just a few specific things I will miss about Stanford 1st... But anyway. It isn't fair to remain in my ward when I live 25 minutes away. I'm hard to access so my home teachers and visiting teachers can't easily reach me. And if any guys decided to ask me out, they'd have to drive all the way down to Los Gatos. That's not very fair! And it's just not fair to my friends.

ナエちゃん and whatever it means

I don't speak Japanese. I don't read it either. This is never really much of a problem. Occasionally, food or a toy will find its way to me and it is inscribed with naught but Japanese characters. I will usually ask Dan to translate at some point. It never really bothers me. I know トトロ is totoro. That's about it.

But I was playing a video game--enjoying myself marvelously--and traded via the interwebbernets with someone (be them in Japan or a big fat fan of Japan) who named their critter ナエちゃん. When the excitement wore off, I found myself slightly put out. I have been placed in a situation where I cannot call this creature by name because his name happens to be ナエちゃん which means NOTHING to me except "you can't read me!"

Well, more interwebbing has brought to the conclusion this... ナエちゃん must be the japanese title of said creature. But, I am suspicious... I think ちゃん is -chan. Maybe... I poured over the katakana and hiragana for a while. Half the name is katakana, the other half is hiragana. That's weird to me... not weird in general. Just weird, to me.

UPDATE: Also! This person I traded with? They are パ-ル

That's interesting

Hmmm! My days are progressing! Weird.

This morning I woke up around 9, and Mom and I made a pie. A raspberry pie! Yes, I made one. :) We found two excellent recipes off and it turned out perfectly! I took it to my birthday party. Sam threw it for me, a pie party where we watched Howl's Moving Castle. Everyone liked my pie. The crust turned out SO flawlessly, my dad thought it was store bought. X)

Tomorrow is my stake conference. I didn't go to tonight's session, though. I feel bad. I'll go tomorrow, though. If I don't, though, I'll go to the Monta Vista ward or my parents ward. Mmm... I have no idea what I'll do, actually.

People on TV are hollering at each other and being stupid. I want to play some video games. I'd also like to take some pictures of my rocks too.

Rilo Kiley is the awesome

Tonight was my birthday surprise with Karren. Every year, she takes me somewhere and it's always a blast. The last 3 years we've done amazing musicals. This year? A Rilo Kiley concert. I am so happy, I can hardly breathe. She handed me the tickets and I screamed and jumped up and down! OH! So awesome! And we had a super yummy dinner and desserts!

And we got the best parking because of my handicap placard! A block away! And the only stood in line for 10 minutes or so, and then got killer KILLER seats! We were on the ground level, in the front section. But on the second tier, in the front, so we got to lean on the rails and had no one blocking our view!!! And the opening band was awesome (Grand Ol Party) and then Rilo Kiley came out!

Jenny wore this awesome gold mini dress, and gold shoes! And Blake wore some awesome shirt and slacks and a vest--looked slick! And they were SO good! Playing old classic songs (Arms Outstretched, Spectacular View) and new ones (Portions for Foxes, Silver Lining). OH, when Silver Lining came on, they threw these GIANT silver balls out into the crowd and we smacked them around! And at the climax of the song, one of them popped and gold confetti flew EVERYWHERE! And the rest popped! Later, Jenny pulled two fans onto the stage to dance!

I'm so tired!

My voice is shot, and my ears a bit ringy.

I'm so happy!

Angry babies

It's like... awesome.


Today I finally realized I'm not mature enough for many things. I mean, honestly. I often feel like I'm very mature because I get to do things which, to me, have always seemed so very "grown up." Like driving. I drive. Hurray. But I also like video games and comics. Which isn't bad, per say, merely... childish. Repeat, it isn't bad and doesn't make me any less of anything. It's just not something I can utilize in my social interactions with my adult friends.

I have a lot of growing up to do. Someday, I'm sure, I'll move past many things that I enjoy now. Onto other things, which I will enjoy as well. I can't pin point a time in which I will, but I will all the same. I moved on from carebears, and the like. Now those are memories. Fond ones. And someday, this will be too. I have no problem with that. I will enjoy them while I do.

I will also, though, build up the more mature aspects of my life. Reading, thinking, et cetera. I will develop more self-discipline and an even stronger desire to serve. I know I am mature in some ways. When I don't feel like I have my mom taking care of me, I take care of things myself. I don't mind, either. I clean up messes, do the dishes, and even go to bed at a decent hour. It's just that I know it won't get done unless I do it. And I want things done.

Someday, I will mature more fully. And I will aim towards it. But if I force myself to get rid of things I enjoy for the sake of maturity, I will regret it and be a little bitter towards myself. I will also have a lingering sentiment towards those things, which will never quite vanish. And then, I'll always be a little immature.

I'm colllllld

Really really cold. Brr!

So, I was feeling headachey all day. It was the uncool. I lay down all day, and even took medicines. Still headachey. Blah. So I took a hot bath, which was really nice. :) I felt a lot better afterwards. Even more nice!

But I went downstairs and hopped on my puter. I read some stuff, and looked some stuff up, and then promptly felt angry at what I found. Non-specifics, but I was infuriated. It was a bad time. A dark time. Gr.

I wanted to cheer up, so I opened up word and began writing the script for my big project. I wrote, and wrote, and I have 13 pages of script! Which equals out to being 67 pages of actual product. X) I feel great! That's the first chapter!!

So, now I'm tired, and infinitely more cheerful. So I shall sleep.

A futigive in the car?

I feel sluggish this morning. I fell asleep around 12:30 or 1, woke up at 3:45 for some reason. Woke up again at 5:30. Then again at 7:45. And again at 9:15. I finally gave up, and got up. But I'm still tired and sluggish. Urg.

I'm going to go take pictures of my rocks some more. I took some last night. Should be able to finish up today. :D

I also want to paint my nails! I should do that really soon, though, since I'm picking up James from the airport at 12.

The swiss SHOULD make tanks like that

Threadless is the awesome! Because today was sale day, I got some shirts! $10 a tee! So worth it. I got 3 new shirts. I am very, very happy. :)

I got one with stars on, one with a sandcastle, and another with a tank.

Yeah. Life is good when you have cool shirts.

I salute you, sir

Tomorrow I'm picking up my friend from the airport. Sometime around noon. He'll call when he lands.

I took some naps. They were nice and relaxing. I feel less headachey. Although... I did take two excedrin and a flexirol when I woke up. Nice a relaxing. I ended up laying on my bed, playing video games. Though, now the meds have worn off. So I'm in some pain, but I can't take the excedrin or it'll keep me awake all night. So I might just go to bed, while I still can.

I debate whether I shower tonight, or tomorrow. Hm.

Headaches cause explosions

I'm about to faint. I wish I were kidding. I don't really know why I'm writing this. I can hardly think straight. That may be the reason, actually.

My headache is back, with a fury. A blinding, excruciating fury. It's like my head is on fire, under pressure, and being hammered on by a miner. When I move my head and neck, it hurts. I am not happy, to say the least..

Dad and I went to Gilroy this morning. I got two new skirts. :) Yay.

He's going to be tired and not feeling well when he gets back from the picnic. I left the picnic early, but he's still there. Poor Dad..


Ugh. I think there's something wrong with my pillow (pilluh!) because for the past two mornings I've woken up sore, and with a kink in my neck. On the right side. I think I've been sleeping on my right shoulder again. I usually can't, but when I slept on the couch, I could! Super! But once I moved back to a bed, I think that ability stopped. Now I'm suffering for it. Blah...

Dad and I are going to Gilroy, for shopping. It's a sale day, after all, and I have gift certificates!! :D I hope I find a skirt!

I'm still a little sleepy. But, when we get home, I might go visit the labor day picnic.. Maybe.

A severe lack of energy

Hungry... hng...

I'm a bit sad. My bishop told me he's transferring my records out of the ward and to another one. All because I don't live in the ward boundaries anymore. 9.9 Sheesh. So this is my last month in the ward.

My friend, Sam, agrees that I need to celebrate my birthday before I leave the ward. I want a pie party. Pie and Amelie. Amelie makes a pie in the movie, so that works. Plus, it's my birthday party-- if I say something has pie related to it in some form I should be agreed with. Thoroughly and without fail. So I think this Saturday afternoon it shall come to be. Pie, Amelie, and my birthday. Huzzah! Pie!

Also. My mom is out of town, leaving me and my dad to fend for ourselves. So far, we have not eaten or slept, and I suspect a bear may be trying to get into the house.

The remainder of my Sunday shall be spent as thus: lying in my bed. Possibly reading, possibly playing video games, possibly taking pictures of rocks. I shall also, more than likely, eat. Sleep seems to drift in and out of my radar, so I may come to a head with that. All in all, I think I shall be useless.

Buckle it all down

Last night, I was so completely awake. I fully intended to go to bed, but couldn't sleep. So I unpacked some of my things. My room is now fully equipped with a large rock collection, books, artbooks, sketchbooks, blankets, and other decorative things. Feels nice and roomy.

I need more cases for my rocks, though. Hm. I have a little bit of money... something like, 20 dollars. Give or take a few. I could buy the remainder of the boxes I need. It's just so scary to have them sitting out, unprotected. O_O What if they fall? This is very stressful.

And in the course of unpacking my rocks, I thought I had lost some! Which made me realize I need to catalog my rocks. I can take pictures and upload them to my computer. I will do that.

But first, the downstairs needs so crazy cleaning action!
