O ye children of Zeus . . .

October 13th, 2010 (04:04 pm)

current mood: amused

You know you're a geek when . . .
I started playing the glory of Heracles a couple hours, with a main character who has amnesia, but is supposedly Heracles.  Which is actually fun so far.  And now the characters are demanding I chose my name, instead of just being refered to as "???".  Sooo. . . what else was I going to do except go to the book-marked baby-names archive and start looking at male Greek baby names?  Lets see how many I can get to relateto Zeus.
The game is pretty good, though making heavy use of the touch screen.  And the battle system is well done.  Plus they haven't done anything to annoy the historian in me yet. ^-^

And the DS Golden Sun is out at the end of November!!!!!!  GLEEEEE!

Also, Castle--with Nathan Fillion is still awesome.  I just finished season 2.  God, but I love disfunctional relationships in television.

Dear life,
Please explain why I can write something good and coherent at 2am after I've finished my coffee and work and Linkin Park is screaming in my ears, but I cannot convince myself to continue work on it at 10am with coffee, a dew, a cupcake and the paper due in a couple hours with either silence or music.
Also, please explain why the kitten only likes my lap when I'm on the computer working on a paper or photoshopping.

Not ready to Make Nice

April 28th, 2010 (09:42 pm)

current location: Room
current mood: pensive
current song: Rent soundtrack

Mom is right.  It hurts because I care.  I'm angry because I care.  I shouldn't.

And so, I'm going to stop.  It will take time.  Anger'll help.  I've gotten over it before, even with someone just as close.  It was a while ago, but I don't think that really matters.  Perhaps I'll get over it faster this time?  I don't know how long it took to start crying last time, but I hadn't erected any walls then. 
It's kind of funny.  I'd just dropped them again.  I thought I wouldn't need them anymore.  Shame.

I'll cry tonight.  Maybe I'll do so again.  I'll try not to, because it really isn't worth it anymore.
I'll be fine this time.  I'll be fine sooner.  This time I'm not alone, not like then.  I'm not alone.  It's nice.

I've made my choice.  Time to move on, grow a spine and get over it.

And I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense.  It's my brain dumping itself.  I'm honestly surprised it hasn't done so earlier than this.  I know it tried, just stopped part way through.  I also apologize for any typos, because if I read over this I'll start crying again, and I still have at least one paper to finish tonight. *shrugs*  Life doesn't stop for emo fits.  Or whatever this is.

And for everyone.  Thank you.
It means more than you know.

I am full of guilt

April 30th, 2009 (12:08 pm)

current location: before class, in classroom
current mood: guilty
current song: Once more with feeling soundtrack

I just turned down a shift from someone at work.  Granted, I had no way of getting out there, but I was asked, and Mike volunteered his child (Rowen) to take me.  I really wouldn't ask her to do that normally, but the guy seemed really, really desperate.  I could've offered to call him back after I'd talked to her, but that would have been really presumptuous on my part, as well as rather demanding (regardless of whether or not her father volunteered her first).  So I am vaguely full of guilt in the immediate aftermath of the conversation.  I also have the strange feeling that I'm being too nice or too stupid again.  Either way.

On the plus side, I spoke to a good friend from middle and high school last night.  I have dearly missed her, and haven't really seen her all that often since she moved to Indiana.  It was good, and I wish I'd been able to think about more to talk about, but ... eh.  What're you going to do?

And on another happy note, I recently picked up another volume of the Top 10 series by Alan Moore as well as the Sandman related manga done by Jill Thompson.  The Top 10 is awesome, just because it focuses on the backstory of the city and it features Joan D'Arc.  As a cop.  And she still hears her voices.  It rules.  The Thompson comic is pure fluff (pretty much anyway) and is much random and full of Death (the character, as well as the dead).  Basic focus of the period in volume 4 where Dream is given the key to Hell.  Much fun.

Still vaguely guilty.

Dear GODS what is WRONG with my teacher?!
I mean it is common knowledge that Christianity hated their women early on, right?  It is common knowledge that Greek women had no rights, right?  It is common knowledge that there was absolutely no way in hell that a woman was allowed to inherit or choose her own husband in the context of Western civilization in the time leading up to the modern period, right?!

And common knowledge doesn't have to be cited in a research paper!!!!!!!!!
So why, why is my teacher demaning I site this material?  I'm fairly certain she covered it in class earlier this semester. (Not the Greek stuff.  That was a previous semester.  With her.)

This is what I get for trying to do my homework.  It really is.  On the plus side, the book I bought to do this paper is ctually really well done and a good source of information in comparing Islamto the west.  And it explains the veils!
Regardless, KILL TEACHER!!!!!!!!!

I feel slightly better now.  Not much, but slightly.  other than little things like that, the paper-writing is going well.  And, sadly, I still love Dr. Bow.  She doesn't like papers any more than we do apparently.

Someone remind me why I have one of these again if all I do on here is bitch about homework I haven't done?

So Much lame

current location: class of stupid evil
current mood: irritated
current song: Everything you want, Vertical Horizon

Rowen got me a DS for my birthday (despite me telling her that she shouldn't) and a copy of Lunar Knights.  This is fine.  I've played (and actually beat) the previous two games in the series, and I can't read Japanese, so there'd be absolutely no point in me special ordering the third game that was never relesed outside Japan.  My issue is that its an awesome game.
It's also very not known (like almost everything else I've picked up).  Therefore several sites that are usually reliable later my collection of art for the game has increased by maybe 20 images, most taken as wallpapers from a lone website and deviantart.  And unlike every other game in EXISTANCE there is a distinctive lack of official art!  I mean, hells, Lunar Knights is for the DS!  It has good graphics, and you don't need to have played either of the previous two incredibly difficult to find, highly unpopular games in order to get it (as far as I know, anyway)!  The creator like the series!  Where is the art for it?!?!

Really, I had more luck finding stuff for Baten Kaitos, and nobody (and I mean nobody) likes that game.

. . .
Huh.  Well, I've been meaning to post for a bit.  I wasn't doing anything but procrastinating on my paper, but random shit keeps happening.  Like the bus last week almost hitting a car that was going the wrong way down Euclid and trying to play chicken with the bus.  Stuff like that.  But whatever.  Nothing else is happening.  Been working.  A lot.

Killing time.

I think I shall start disliking PotC now.  I mean, the movies were great and all, but I do not need fanart.  Especially when I'm trying to find pictures of small wing-ed creatures that are generally common in this area.

Stupid sparrows.

Huh.  I should go back to looking up otherpeople's memes too . . .

To quote a character that I only vaguely like, "You must be in a mad panic!"

And I am.  I found out today that my eight parge, times new roman size 12 font paper on the women of Islam in modern society I hadn't done more than a very detailed outline for needs to be turned in today, or I get a zero on this portion of the assignment.  I am panicking so bad right now.  I've done a bit of the research, and I generally know what I'm talking about up to a point, but that point is fairly null.  At least right now, and I really really don't have the time to find evidence for stuff I've learned duriong this process.  Plus, the copy of the Qur'an I'm using is not yielding applicable quotes at all at the moment.
It wouldn't be so bad, and I wouldn't care that much if it weren't, y'know a zero.  If I get that on something like this that makes up so much of my grade, it won't matter what happens.  Even if I do everything else perfectly (which I won't) I'll still only get a very high C in the class.  And while I'm writing this in order to stop the mad panic, it isn't working too terribly well. 
At the very least, its a rough draft, and I can e-mail it to my teacher, and then turn in a hard copy on wednesday, but thats hardly the point.  If I'm luck, I can finih the grand majrity of it soon, and then just leave in the outline as a placeholder (the more detailed sections of it anyway) and then just send it in.  Gods, why the fucking HELL is there a cut-off date?!  I was planning on doing most of it tnight and then putting the finishing touches on tomorrow, and turning it in on Wednesday anyway!  Why the hell is she doing this?!

 . . . needs soothing, relaxing activity . . . *sobs*
back to the paper hell now, I think.

I just took the worst test ever.  Not because it was hard (cause it wasn't) or because I didn't study (which I didn't) or even because I didn't do the reading (which was also not done).  I'd have prefered any of those things.  But this . . . this is just a piece of crap.

This is a rantCollapse )
