I had nothing better to do yesterday than go through the pictures saved to my computer. Went through my userpics file and was amazed at the collection I had.

So, I culled my favorite userpics from the selection I had loaded here, added my favorites that I had saved on file....Now, I have 20 of my favorite userpics loaded. I am most pleased with my current selection. Most pleased.

To make this post actually worth it, I should state something profound.




I hate Mondays. And I'm wearing the ugliest pair of black shoes I've ever had the displeasure of seeing, but they are probably the most comfortable pair I own, aside from the black slippers that feel like clouds. Honestly. And I've always been more of a comfort versus fashion kinda gal.

Also, so glad that the temps warming up. Last week, we existed in the teens to thirties, depending on which day of the week it was. This week, we get mid-fifties. Oh my god, thank you!!

Assassin's Creed is eating my brain. I think I posted that last time, but I thought I'd restate it, as it still applies. Fanfics, gaming, fanart....

Can't wait for One Piece to get back on a regular schedule. Am still tingling from the awesomeness of the last chapter, and that was how many weeks ago now?

School starts back up next week. Tuesday, to be exact. Can't decide whether I'm excited or not. Oddly enough, it concerns the same point. It's my last semester! Holy shit, it's my last semester!

Also, this time a year from now, I'll most likely be moved out of my parent's house. Heck, half a year from now. This prospect terrifies me. Utterly. I'm paranoid, jump at the tiniest of sounds even when in the house with others. Imagine how much that'll be magnified when I'm all alone in my own residence....Oh jeez, freaking out already. Need to stop that XD

Christmas was good. Gave my dad a jersey of his favorite player. The two hours and three shops visited and crowd fighting was worth it for his reaction. Mom got a blue topaz necklace from me. Brother got The Zombie Survival Guide. In return, I got a guitar, two sets of pajamas, an exercise ball (and yes, I really did want that), the third season of Criminal Minds, a Barnes and Noble gift card (that, for the first time in years, will not be used on textbooks!!), and a new PS2 controller, as mine was spazzing out and randomly saying it wasn't connected to the PS.

Hmm....I think that's it.

AHAHAHA. I have a test in seven and a half hours. What am I doing? Playing Kingdom Hearts. Yes, I fail at life.

In other news, nearly beat Kingdom Hearts on normal level. Got the urge to start over (the reason why I have so many games sitting on my not-finished list), decided that normal was too easy a mode at the same time, and so started an expert new game. Leveled to 20 before leaving Destiny Islands (TOOK FOREVER, LET ME TELL YOU. SELPHIE, YOU AND YOUR TECH POINTS ARE A GODSEND AND A TORTURE ALL AT ONCE).

Cut for more gamer rambling )

And, in the last bit of news before I head for bed....

SAKJNAOINHAEHJNAEKLYN!!! HOLY COW!!! OP, you get more and more awesome every week! Is it bad to ask for the new chapter already?! >.>

Oh,, sometimes you scare me. Or, you know, disgust me. 'Cuz reading about how someone picked up their "bowel of popcorn" from the counter, or how they "dropped their bowel in his lap" just...really, really grosses me out. Or amuses me. But mostly disgusts me.

In other news, I have another week of summer classes, and then the madness shall end. Whoever convinced me that working full-time and then going to two evening classes, and somehow managing to squeeze in transit time ('cuz class, work, and home are all over the freakin metroplex), homework time, and sleep time was completely doable is completely freaking insane deserves ants in the pants steered me onto the road to insanity is a big fat liar.

Sleep. Kingdom Hearts. My life. I shall return to you after next week is over. I promise.

You are a Clueless Uke!

Having a good time is what you're all about. You're satisfied just to have someone to eat hamburgers and play video games with, and are completely oblivious to other's manipulative behavior. You don't expect much, and that can be a good thing. You're perfect prey for the Opportunist Seme, who might take advantage of you, but you probably won't even notice, or really care, as long as you're enjoying yourself.

Most compatible with: Opportunist Seme, Romantic Seme

Least compatible with: Sadistic Seme, Don't Fuck With Me Seme

What seme or uke are you? Take the experience at, or find merchandise here.

Read more of the same here - an more in-depth look )

OK, so....It's been awhile. Actually, that's probably an understatement.

Nursing school is going well, so far. Just finished my second semester, and I'm taking advantage of my two weeks off to catch up on all the things I've missed this semester. Video games, here I come!

As an aside, my oma is in the country for a month, so good food and good times will be had. She's here because my brother is graduating from high school in two weeks. ;_; I feel so old, despite the fact that I'm only four and a half years older....

Anyhow, not sure how much family will be coming to see him walk the stage. I know my German aunt and uncle will not be able to bring their families, because the former is building a new house and has no money and the latter has been affected by the economy and...has no money. Sadly enough, we have tons of family up in Wisconsin as well, so you would think that, hey, distance is much closer, so we'll get tons of family from there!

Cut for old family drama and rambling musing )

And...uhh...what else?

New manga I've recently picked up: Fairy Tail, Vampire Knight, One Piece (ok, this one's not so new, I've been reading it since New Year's Eve, curses to [ profile] pi90katana and [ profile] whiteadelphi and all your talking about how awesome OP is)

New anime I'm watching: err....Skip Beat? One Piece has the same explanation as above.

Anyone else read or watch these and have any comments on them?

chibi_oniyuri: (hamster-chu)'s been a while, yes?

Things are going well here.... Alright, fine. Decently. Things are going decently here. Another semester at school has started. I'm enrolled in German II, Intro to Sociology, a chemistry course, and I'm taking Creative Writing online. All are fun so far, though CW is kicking my tail. We've started out learning and writing poetry, and I hate poetry. Or, more-so, I hate poetry I can't understand, and most of the ones the author of my textbook has chosen fall into this category. I find it difficult to write as well, but that's something I'll have to suffer.

On the other hand, CW has stirred some juices. Or maybe my muse has rejuvenated. Whichever it is, I am writing fanfics again. Whippee!

I also welcome a new fandom on board, and I blame [ profile] whiteadelphi for it all. I have fallen headfirst into TMNT, and I'm loving it. Seriously.

I've also recently fallen several levels in Fanfic Hell. Though I'm not really willing to go into details, as it's a guilty pleasure, rest assured that I'm loving that too.

Last time, I wrote that I'd applied to nursing school. Unfortunately, I didn't make it in. I will be applying again. I'm crossing my fingers this time.

House premiered tonight! Yay!

"Hmm...this kidnapper is...bold..." FTW!

In other news, school is going well. I was able to stay in Spanish, and I'm having the first test on Thursday. Every other class is going well. The work piles up, but I enjoy it.

Application to nursing school is due this Friday. I have nearly every bit done. Ironically enough, the part I thought would be easiest (getting my various transcripts) is a pain in the arse, and the bit I figured would be difficult (getting a TB test after I was re-enrolled on my father's health insurance) was a breeze. Tomorrow, I'm going to call up a university and complain. I sent in a transcript request on Friday marked "same-day processing", and I still haven't heard anything from them.

Other news...errr....nothing, really. I'm re-reading Buso Renkin right now, and am reminded of how much it made me laugh the first time around. I can't wait for October, as many of the manga I'm following release new volumes then. Just 10 more days....

At Wit's End

Hmm, it's been a while. Despite that, not much has happened at all.

I spent summer taking classes at the community college to prepare for my application to nursing school, which I am currently filling out. When I wasn't at work, I was enroute to class or in class. Otherwise, I was sleeping off my exhaustion.

Now, I'm taking regular, fall-semester classes: Anatomy and Physiology II, German I, Spanish I, English Comp II, Principles of Fitness and Wellness, and Yoga. I may be dropping the Spanish if my schedule isn't rearranged. The system had a brain fart and signed me up for MW 1220 classes, which probably wouldn't be a problem if I hadn't arranged all class days for Tuesdays and Thursdays so that I could be at work on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I'll find out the results of that tomorrow.

I've recently turned 21 and avoided greeting the day after with a hangover, mostly by refraining from telling friends of the upcoming day.

The renters that lived in my old house (alright, my parents' old house, but I lived there as well) recently moved out, leaving behind roach colonies, stained carpets, multiple holes in the walls of every room, and beer cans galore. My dad flits between selling the house and keeping it, but we have to fix it up either way, and it's a giant pain in the bum.

And last but certainly not least, my oma is coming to stay for a month in exactly one week. I'm beyond excited.

In other news, Harvest Moon is eating my soul, and Draco Malfoy and flesh-eating zombies are invading my dreams. Dreams containing the former are much more pleasant than the ones containing the latter. I'm walking around in a haze brought on by insomnia, because I am now wary of falling asleep and being consumed in my dreams. It's gotten to the point that I stay up incredibly late in the hopes that I will fall into an exhausted, dreamless sleep. That typically backfires because I "see" things after everyone goes to bed and am terrified of every shadow. Any advice anyone can give will be welcome, as I'm going on a month of minimal sleep and it's really become a bother.

Huh...perhaps more has happened than I thought. It looks more...impressive written down. That's all for now....
chibi_oniyuri: (hamster-chu)
It's raining here. Again. Though that's not much of a surprise, since it's rained to varying degrees nearly every day of the past three months.

What is odd is that it's not normal. I've almost given in to the urge to make sure the town I live in hasn't somehow transported itself to somewhere known for its rain, like Seattle.

We haven't even hit 100 degrees yet. I think we had a period of 95 for a few days, but the rest has been much milder and more humid than normal.

The rain is really messing with us. Bugs are running rampant through here. We had a bad case of webworms, caterpillars that spin a web around several branches of trees to completely isolate themselves from predators and the elements while gorging themselves on the soft-wood buffet. Floods are rampant through the area. We haven't mowed the lawn in two weeks, and even then it was while it was sprinkling and clumping the grass into a maddening mess.

It's almost enough to make me wish away the rain. Almost. Even if lakes are overflowing and we need to open the flood gates, it's a far cry better than a few months ago, when we were predicting another dry summer that would drop our lakes down to record lows. Now, we've stolen someone's rain and are at a record high. We've fixed the damage of a two-year drought, plus the effects of previous droughts, in a three-month period. That is, I believe, very good.


Anyhow, that's all that's really new here. Rain. Lots of rain.

I'm finishing up my summer I class, English, on the 5th, and then I start my Summer II class, chemistry, on the 9th. I'm not looking forward to buying new textbooks again.

Tomorrow's July 4th. I suppose I'm somewhat excited. My family never really does much, just barbecues and goes up on the roof to watch the fireworks. If the weather has its way (with, you guessed it, more rain!!!), we may not even do that much. We'll see how it goes.

And now, I'm off to....errr......I'm not sure. But, I'm off.

So, it's April. In Texas. Which means spring has officially begun and all that nice stuff. It should soon be hitting the 80s and we'll all be walking around in our spring clothes, lamenting May and the beginning of the heat waves.

So why exactly is this white stuff falling from the sky?

Yes, that's right. It's snowing. In April. It boggles the mind. My speech teacher has lived here for 50 years and said, that he remembers, it's never snowed this late. It didn't stick, but it's the thought that counts, right?

Well, I suppose I've blathered enough for the night. *slinks off for studying*

Edit: That wound up coming out longer than expected. I suppose I'll do the courteous thing and lj-cut. ^_^

Registration for next semester done. I'm bumping up from 11 to 17 hours and keeping my original work schedule. We'll see if I can manage or not.

I was supposed to be off tomorrow, but my dad talked my boss into guilt-tripping me to work, despite my plans of sleeping off the deficit I earned with late-night cramming. I'm fast approaching the burnout point, but my dad's philosophy is "time in leisure is time wasted". Or maybe "work at all times", or something along those lines.

Sometimes, I hate working with my dad.

At least my boss is letting me come in at 0900 instead of 0700. That's a break for me.

Well. night all.

*crawls out from the virtual grave, dusts off the dirt* I LIIIIIIVVVEEEE!!!!

OK, so I'm a bit melodramatic. Forgive me, I'm riding the high of finally, finally, having my exams done. I just walked out of the last one (nothing but essay-style short answers, what a load of fun that was), and I'm pretty sure I flew through them with a rainbow in hot pursuit.

*Takes a look at that last sentence, ponders it a bit, decides to leave it be...if questioned later, will put it off on giddiness*

I get to go back around 12:30 if I want to find out my final for Microbiology, and I definitely want. If I didn't make a 100 on this exam, it's because I forgot that rifampin can be used to treat tuberculosis. And since that was one part of a two part question (what can treat tuberculosis, the other answer being INH), I'll miss at most 1.5 points. Unless he decides the whole thing is wrong, in which case I will get 3 points off. Unless he decides that the answer in right regardless, in which case I'll be docked nothing. Can you tell I'm somewhat anxious?

Then I'm off to run a few errands and take care of a bit more of my Christmas shopping (read: hang out at Barnes and Noble reading for a few hours, then bemoan the fact that I got nothing done later, though my literature-wanting needs will have been met).

After that, I shall sit done and catch up on all things virtual. But for now....

*goes off dancing and celebrating the fact that life can't get much better right now*

Wind, anyone?

Wednesday, 15 November 2006 22:13
chibi_oniyuri: (rogue)
Today, we had something we don't have often: wind. And not just, "hey, look, there's a pleasant breeze blowing my way", but a, "Oh my god, don't stop wind, if you do I'll fall over, I'm leaning and pushing so much!" kind of wind. Gusts of 50 mph winds.

That was fun. By the time I got home, my hair was a veritable rat's nest. It tangles way too easily, in way too complex a knot. *wince*

Well, this is probably enough procrastinating. I've been reading fanfiction and playing Harvest Moon and generally avoiding looking at anything remotely resembling microbiology. Not exactly good, considering I have a test on Friday. >.> <.< I won't tell if you don't....
chibi_oniyuri: (rogue)
I think I'm about all studied out, but I'm a lot calmer this morning. I've about an hour and a quarter to go, so I'll probably just read the end-of-chapter summaries and hope for the best.

The best part about this class is that I think I've covered most of these bits in other classes or on my own time. Hopefully, that'll help me for this test. Won't be much help later, though.

And because I'm leery of not doing the superstitious stuffs...I found this at [ profile] rikkitsune's.

A girl died in 1933 by a homicide murderer. He buried her in the ground when she was still alive. The murdered chanted, "Toma sota balcu" as he buried her. Now that you have read the chant, you will meet this little girl. In the middle of the night she will be on your ceiling. She will suffocate you like she was suffocated. If you post this, she will not bother you. Your kindness will be rewarded.
chibi_oniyuri: (slime)
I have an exam in...oh...twelve and a half hours. Take away time for sleep and my morning lab and a have...three and a half hours to study.

Let me clarify. Three hours to study three chapters of stuff I've never seen before in Microbiology. I've already covered the three other chapters of stuff that was mainly review.

Perhaps this is the fly in my ointment? I mean, my exam schedule has been going so well that something had to mess it up, right? And after leaving work feeling like I actually accomplished something this week, this would be the natural drop after the rise. Right? Right?!

So why am I typing instead of studying? I'm hoping to calm down a bit. Plus, this is my proscribed ten minute break in an hour of studying. Let's pray it's useful.
chibi_oniyuri: (slime)
I'm an incredibly light sleeper when it comes to light. I can neither have it too dark (because then my imagination runs away with me) nor too light (for instance, with some room in the house that has the unfortunate ability to shine into my bedroom).

So, of course, I was awoken at four this morning by my father turning on his bedroom light. I have no idea why he did this, as he usually turns on the less bright bathroom light to get ready for work in the morning, in consideration for us who do not have to wake up that early. I imagine it has something to do with waking up late and being upset about that fact, though usually he marches about the house angrily, occasionally slamming the door to his closet, which I can miraculously sleep through. Unfortunate for me that he chose a different manner to express his anger. Thanks for the wake-up, Dad, but it was unnecessary.

Because of this, I was clued in to the fact that I have caught a terrible cold much sooner than I had wished. Of course, with the wonderful nasal congestion comes the obligatory sore throat. I could have passed on both counts, or at least wished it to another day. I have a test today. Now, I must go take it with a muddled, tired mind. Great joy for me.

Now, I'm sipping herbal tea, blowing my nose, and studying as best I can for my microbiology lab exam. Here's hoping I learn the various stains I must memorize by then.
chibi_oniyuri: (rogue)
I have various quizzes/other interesting little things to share today.

My personality )


My color )

Today's Friday! Yay! Which means psyc test tomorrow! Boo!

Oh well...time to bundle off and clean...and study...and repeat.
