Well, it got to about 4:50 which is almost time for supper, so I asked nobody in particular, "I DON'T WANT TO DO ANYMORE SCHOOL, DO I HAVE TO???" And then I thought, "I never wrote about the Renaissance Faire." So here I am to post. Today is simply beautiful. Ah, happy contented sigh. The winds blowing the stupid street lamp outside my window. I hope it doesn't come crashing in . . .
Sorry if I sounded depressed in that last long post on Monday. I was actually chuckling as I wrote it, although I am still sad that nobody has remembered my fake birthday. If noone remembers by the end of the week, I'll say something, but I keep hoping someone will remember! Anyway, I've been having a pretty good week. At least, I've been pretty productive. But I can tell that I'm getting stressed because when I went to find a job and the information desk wouldn't give me the information I needed, I nearly burst into tears and had to take the elevator down so nobody would see. But then I came back and listened to my college playlist, and it made me feel better. Now I'm listening to my love songs playlist. It's perfect for this kind of day. :)

I want the publishers to tell me what they think of my book! I know they're gonna reject it--I'd probably reject it. But I really want someone to publish it 'cuase I'm sick and tired of editing it and I need the money. :) I know it wouldn't be much, but it could help with all this college stuff so I wouldn't have to keep getting more loans. Ick. Tuesday, I toyed with the idea of adding another book to the series. I've toyed with that idea before. It seems like it really needs another book, but that would make it a six book series. I'm only one and a half books through and it's taken me four and a half years. Oh joy. I'm still toying with it. :)

Well, I should probably go either eat supper, do homework, or finish the post about the Renaissance Faire. Fair thee well my devoted audience!

Ha ha, Karen always has these funny little quiz things on her blog, so I thought I'd try (mostly 'cause I'm sick and tired of doing school all day).

You Belong in 1958

If you scored...
1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!
1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.
1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!
1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.
1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

What Year Do You Belong In?

I was almost afraid this one was going to turn scarey:

Your Brain is 60.00% Female, 40.00% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

What Gender Is Your Brain?
Hmm, well I'm not sure why stuff didn't show up, but it says "1958" and "Your Brain is 60% female, 40% male"

Monday, March 28, 2005

So I think I now know why everybody posts on their blogs when they're depressed and need to vent. It's because we want somebody to say, "Aw! Poor baby!" or we want to subtly let someone know they did or didn't do something we didn't or did want them to do.

So today, my alarm went off at 7am. After about 30 or more seconds during which I had to think about it to remember what day it was, why my alarm was going off, and if I really needed to get up at all. I finally dragged myself out of bed, got dressed in the freezing cold, and went to breakfast (wearing bracers and cloak). I slept through half of history. He gave us the powerpoint slides, so I didn't have to take notes. Usually what keeps me awake is taking notes, so I gave up and went to sleep. I thought about skipping chapel, but decide to go. I'm glad I did 'cause it was (Mrs.) Dr. Hood speaking. Yay!! Then we had Spanish and the first girl gave her speech on the person I was going to give my speech on, but I already did the research, so people will just have to suffer (mine's better than hers anyway :::wink wink::::). I ate lunch which was good by SAGA standards, and had about five minutes to repack my bag before I had to go print the powerpoint for the next class. Well, as usual, the printer wouldn't print, so I had to try a couple of times. I nearly fell asleep in that class too. I snatched about five minutes of solid sleep before CS-I which was a cool class. All we did was work on our programs and that was awesome fun. ::::kermit the frog yay:::: YAY!! But working on the program took an hour and a half instead of just an hour. So I got back and was able to get a fitful 30 minute nap before the first Themelios meeting which went from 5 to 7. At 7, I went the meeting about the Mexico trip which I can't afford but sounds awesome, and then I had to go print my summer housing application, my summer course registration form, and a scholarship application. I got back to room after going non-stop (except for the 30 minute fitful nap) for 13 hours, and filled out those said applications only to realize that I have a meeting with my advisor tomorrow at two, so probably can't do lunch and Wal-Mart with Christy tomorrow, like we had planned. Then I found out something that makes me sad, but oh well. And I discovered that I might not be able to register for classes until the fall 'cause my stupid financial aide was stupid audited so I won't get awarded until stupid tax returns. Grrr! And to top everything off, nobody remembere that today is my (college) birthday. Sniff. I was sort of hoping people would get an IHOP run together or something, but I guess if I'm gonna celebrate my birthday here with my friends, I'll have to plan it myself. I thought maybe if I mentioned it enough at the beginning of last semester, people might remember, but I guess not. (And that's how I came to my conclusion about people posting depressing stuff on their blogs. Now's the part where you all say, "Aw, poor baby!" and plan an IHOP run for sometime this week--hint hint :-) ) I know people are busy, and I don't blame anybody for not remembering my "fake" birthday. I just really want to celebrate at school where I have a group of friends, 'cause back home, I have, what all of 2 friends not counting immediate family members. Yay, so it's fun to celebrate with them, but it's not the same as a brother/sister floor IHOP (or whatever) run. I actually don't care that much if it's for my birthday or not--I just want an excuse to hang out late at night eating pancakes. :) So, now that I've thoroughly bored and depressed you and explained my theories about humans, it's time to do a little homework before I go to bed. Thursdays, I could never get the hang of Thursdays . . .
Leo-the-Lolipop-Man: Psst, it's Monday.
Me: :::distressed and resigned sigh::: I was quoting . . .
Leo-the-Lolipop-Man: I was teasing.
Me: I think I need to go hug the big bear again. What's his name? Hubert el Oso or something. Deep sigh. And my throats a little sore. Maybe I'll make some (fake) chai. But then I'd have to wash my cup. No I wouldn't, I have two. But I'd have to wash the spoon. Darn. Well, I'll finish my post (which isn't posted and is only in draft form) about the Renaissance Faire later when I'm feeling more happy about sharp point things, long flowly things, and black leather things. Good night my devoted following. Til we meet again!

"Life, don't talk to me about life." ~~ Marvin the Robot (a favorate quote quoted by my friend Lina the elf)

P.S. I don't like professors right now. Don't ask why, I couldnt' say, I'm just taking my frustration out on their race in general.

Sunday, March 27, 2005

I guess it's been awhile again. But that's me for you. Oh my goodness, yesterday was so much awesome fun! I went with the Lina's family (no last names for safety reasons :::wink wink:::) Oh, food's here. bye

Wednesday, March 09, 2005

Oh my goodness yay. It's Wednesday which means tomorrow is Thursday which means it's almost Friday and Friday means SPRING BREAK! Oh I really need it. Ack. And I have a stinkin' test on Friday. I still really don't think it's fair of Dr. Hummel to give us a test at 1:30 Friday when he's not even going to be there. I know, overuse of italics, but I felt like it, that's how "grrr" I am.

On the up side, um . . . I got to the next section in my book. I'm just waiting for the villains to attack already so we can get some interesting stuff in so that I can start Part 5. I usually use a different folder for each part, but after duct taping Part 4's folder for the third time, I decided it was time for a new folder.

IMPACT letters went out today and I got Themelios. Yay! Kermit the Frog yay. ::::waves hands as if she's a puppet:::: YAY!!!! The only problem is that the first training is the day of my "birthday" (my college birthday). Sniffy. Oh, that's the day after Easter anyway. Maybe we can still do something. I really want to celebrate my birthday with all my friends here (hence the March 28, college birthday).

My brother said something really awesome to me yesterday. We were sort of talking about random stuff and, oh I know, we were talking about how everytime I do something with Lina, people say something along the lines of "Who's the guy?" So we laughed, and then my brother said:
HairyHarryCB: you should pick a random guy and ask him out
HeirofGondor: What for?
HairyHarryCB: to see what he says
HeirofGondor: Haha
HeirofGondor: But then I'd have to suffer a date with him
HeirofGondor: Besides, the guy is the one who's supposed to do the asking
HairyHarryCB: well obviously they're getting a little behind in their job
When your dad says stuff like that it's cool 'cause you know he loves you, but there's something about when your brother says stuff like that that makes you feel special. So I just thought I'd tell everybody that I have the awesomest little brother ever and I'm sooooo excited to see him in two days! (I hope he doesn't mind I put that up here . . .) Oh, and then I said, "You just want a brother-in-law, don't you?" and he said, "Yeah, so any random guy will do." HA ha. Um . . . Lappy, meet the paper. The paper tells me when I've stopped being funny . . .
Time to either clean or go to class or something. Yay for Spring Break!

So I was walking to breakfast today, just minding my own business, when I notice some people were climing onto the Saga roof to get another statue down. Then, lo and behold! the statue moved! Yes, that's right. There was a live goat on the roof of Saga this morning. (there's some proof it was a live goat on the walkway) So that made classes more interesting.

Yesterday was an awesome day! (except that I didn't get to go to Lina's due to homework and previous engagements . . .) After church, Alisha, Shawna, Jennie, Kurt, Paul, Zoot and I went to the daffodil fields in somewhere-about-a-half-hour-from-here. It was very much fun. Shawna and I drove Zoot crazy by singing Disney songs the whole way there (I'm kidding, Zoot was very nice about it). Then we walked through the flowers and took pictures (I drew a picture, but it didn't turn out so well . . .) and then we sang praise songs by the "lake" (it was a pond) while Jennie played guitar. Here's my brother's reaction when I told him about our day (I'm HeirofGondor):

HeirofGondor: Yeah, we walked around, took lots of pictures, and sang while Jennie played the guitar
HairyHarryCB: hahahahhahahahaha
HairyHarryCB: hahahhaahaha
HairyHarryCB: that sounds hippie
HeirofGondor: Ha ha!
HeirofGondor: You're right, it does!
HeirofGondor: Ha ha ha ha!!!
HeirofGondor: Especially when I think about how everytime someone stepped on a flower, Alisha yelled at them and tried to make the flower stand up again . . .
HairyHarryCB: hahahahhahahahahahaha!

And then we ate Fazzoli's for supper and the guys stole my YAC card. I'm just kidding, I got it back. Jennie ate a million and a half bread sticks, no joke. It was so much fun. Oh, and at the Mud Hut on Friday, I painted a tooth brush holder! :) Well, I'd better get to all the stuff I have to get done before Spring Break. Just less than a week! YAY!!!!! Until then, I remain your affectionate dictator,

So, here I am in CS-I again. I finished my exegesis paper yesterday (yes!) and now I just have that stupid robot to code. Gar. TODAY IS FRIDAY!!!! YAY!!!! I love Fridays. Fridays are so prodigiously fazmatic. I hope I spelled that right . . .

Last night, I went to chapel with my floor. It was about relationships. I didn't really agree with all the lady said, but it was fun to be there with my friends. Then we went to Common Grounds for dollar latte night. Mmmmm. Caramel is tasty. And then we went to cheer our brother floor on at their intramural basketball game (go Cow 2). After their game, we had to change really fast for our basketball game *the bell rings and an hour passes while Sam tries desperately to code a program that is very confusing* I had a lot of fun at our game. I can sort of almost play basket ball! Kermit the Frog yay! :::waves arms as if she is a puppet:::: YAY!!!!!!

So tonight, we're going to go to the Mud Hut and colour pots! Yay again. :::breaths heavily:::: I'm so glad it's the weekend. And hey! I'm done. I'm just waiting for my teacher to finish with the other people so that I can know what on earth I'm doing. I mean ask him a question. :)

Last night, I dreamt that we had a basketball game. Then my floor and the brother floor took a road trip. I remember stopping at a gas station and running out of toilet paper . . . weird. And then we were talking about dating 'cause of chapel. It was sort of weird, but defiantely amusing. Hey, I only got a little more than 6 hours of sleep last night and I'm actually okay! Yay.

Well, I have a couple places to run before my weekend officially begins. I really don't want to. Maybe I'll skip one. Hehe, I've been putting off talking to my advisor for forever. It's just hard to catch him when he's around.

My teacher's still talking with the others . . . :::deep sigh::::
The LeeMan: Mind if I stop in?
Me: Why not at all! Maybe you can make this waiting more interesting.
The LeeMan: Not really. I was bored, that's why I'm here.
Me: Oh, the teacher got up! Maybe he'll come help me! Oh never mind, he's just admiring somebody else's work.
*time passes*
Me: Yay! I got it figured out! Okay, time to go run around before the weekend really begins. This is Sam the Storyteller, signing off . . .


Thursday, March 03, 2005

So, I should be exegesiting, but I felt like procrastinating just a little while longer. I'm so definately ready for Spring Break. I love my friends, but I'm ready for no school. : ) Plus, it's been, what, two months since I've seen my family? So I'm looking forward to Mom and Dad hugs and getting to hang out with my awesome beyond awesome brother. I'm also excited about the pool, ping pong, air hockey (maybe I can practice enough so that I can beat Dimildt without him letting me, grrrrr), and especially I'm looking forward to Dad's grilled fajitas. Oh, my mouth waters in anticipation!

On a more academic note, the got the schedule for next semester up and I get to take two of my major classes next semester! Yay! I'm so excited! Digital Literature and Writing for Digital Media. Sounds fun to me. I still haven't decided if I want to go to Mexico for Spanish this summer, but I need to decide soon. Ah! Oh, and I got my midterm grades, which were better than I was expecting, so I hope I can keep them that way, but I haven't had any major projects due yet. Drawing pictures in class is fun.

Oh, and Carolyn has decided not to move to the apartments (I do believe), so we are going to be roommates next year! Yay! Now we just have to fight over whose room we live in . . . I'm really gonna miss my suite. Oh well.

Oh, and one last note about my previous post (by the way, Lina, I really liked your comment!), maybe the reason Imaginary/Invisible Friends go away is because we don't need them anymore. I had I. Friends when I was really stressed and didn't get to see my friends all the time or when I just plain didn't have any friends. But now, I have an awesome floor that I'm with all the time, an awesome elf that I get to see on the weekends, an awesome floor full of brothers/friends, and an awesome life with minimal stress levels. So, maybe I just don't need The Guys and My Little Friend Who Sits On the Roof as much as I used to. Although, I still enjoy Leo-the-Lolipop-Man, Shewan Khan, and Sam (not to mention Gurgi-the-Decapitated-Little-Doggie, Aladdin, and the Time Elf Bell, who have as yet been silent). Hm, interesting thought.

Anyway, it's about ten, so I've been up for an hour (my alarm went off two hours ago), and I should get to my Esther Exegesis. Oh dang that stupid bell tower! I know it's ten! Sheesh . . . Until next time, this was Random Craziness from #3 Bagshot Row.
