In other news, I got a haircut today. Turns our I was suppose to ask for the razor blade 4 instead of two... and here I was thinking it was 3. Well, it'll grow back, and on the plus side, I can not more easily fit my head inside my hat.
Click on the spoiler tag for the pictures. It's in a spoiler tag because it might otherwise scare young children. Or because it saves space here. I dunno. Of note... yes, I have terrible red eye, I took most of these pictures myself, acne be cursed, and no, I have not had my hair cut at this point. I am going to avoid any picture taking for another week before my hair regrows.
And another note: I am following Omi's advice for two reasons. 1: Everybody's doing it, and 2: he makes a good reason to do so, even though I have yet to receive any problems through my blog posts (I did get caught in that PM attack, though, and made a fool out of myself by responding. Yes, Makaru, I read your blog on that, and I know better than to respond next time). But because I have nothing better to do (except homework) I'll probably be very quick to approve comments, especially since I know how to approve them (unlike when I first got a blog).
One of my biggest woes on my b-day was that I didn't get this package sent by my mom. She aparently paid express shipping on the 2nd, and it was suppose to arrive on the 3rd. Instead, it appparently "arrived" on the 5th, but wasn't placed in my mailbox until the 6th... so all that money was wasted on express shipping when I could've just waited one day longer and gone with regular shipping. Ah, the postal service. What can you do?
Anyway, I wasn't really expecting much... I got a sweet card, that was nice. But there was something else in there too. It wasn't a Lego... I am finished with buying sets from 07, as I have all the Matoran, one Hydruka (that I could've done with out) 5 Barakki, 3 Mahri, and 0 Titans... the rets are either poor quality sets (in my opinion) or just out of my price range as a starving college student (who's gaining weight... I fail to see how those two can be present at once, but its true).
Nope, it was something else.
The Transformers 2 Disc Special Edition DVD.
I still haven't watched this movie yet, now I have it on DVD. So I'm going to see if all the reviews I've heard about it are true. Half the people (critics) claim that it could be far better, and then people on BZP (you know I'm talking about you Mak and KN) say it's great. Now it's finally time to form my opinion!!
So I'm posting this blog, making sure it gets posted, and then I'm closing down Internet Explorer and popping in Disc one.
Yeah, a TV would be fine around now, but I'll make due with what I have.
Maybe I'll resurface on BZP in a few hours. But I'm done with classes, done with my stupid drama paper and my complicated chem homework, and just need to be able to get up tomorrow for another set of lectures. Between now and then... I've got a movie!
Anyhow... tis probably been the worst birthday ever. Thanks to everybody on BZP who gave my birthday well-wishes, that was nice, but I didn't get a topic. (selfishness alert!!) My parents apparently sent me a package, but no mail on Sunday. Oh yeah, and I have like a TON of homework. I finished most of my chem homework (with a lot of help from my dad via e-mail) but I still have a write up for my chem lab tomorrow. Then I have a two page paper on a drama play that I absolutely hated and cannot see how to write about it... due tomorrow. And then a midterm tomorrow. And another lab... I gotta prepare for that one as well.
So, thus, I procrastinated all evening taking over 100 pictures of myself (and a few of my roomie). While I didn't get any cake, I did get a floating apple. And then I ate it.
Get ready for an unexpected trip, when you fall screaming from an opened window.

Horoscope for Today ~ Weird Al Yankovic
I liked some of the other perdictions better (The stars say you're a exciting and wonderful person... but you know they're lying). But, hey, destiny is not giving me a choice...
And yes, this is my current favorite song of the current time.
*hums to self, hoping somebody will get the hint and the neighboors don't yell at me for singing too loudly at two in the morning*
As you should know, the Ideal Gas Law is...
Here's how it applies to college life.
(Peer Pressure) * (Volume of Homework) = (Number of pounds I've gained by eating way too much greasy food) * (constant stress) * (temperature of fever)
Okay, so I might have a bleak outlook on college life so far... I've always hated school to a degree, and it's all the worst because I take school seriously too, so I can't just skip off classes whenever I feel like it. I think my courses would be a bit easier if I didn't have Chemistry and a lab every week to freak me out. Anyway, it's also my first semester, so this is just shock from not being in high school anymore (and sometimes that is a shock when I remember that).
Some people say that college is one of the best parts of their lives. These are the people that are taking business degrees, and have only two classes two days out of the week. :glares:
*note: no offense to anybody who can be offended by any of this... you should know that by reading this blog that you are exposing yourself to my thoughts and, if taken in the incorrect way, may prove poisonous... *
Also of note... I still have chem homework done (Ideal Gas Law, coincidental) and I'm on BZP. Strange how that always seems to happen.
When do I have to get to my next class?
When can I sleep (or can't sleep)?
When and where can I eat?
When can I check out my e-mail (and BZP)?
When is my homework due?
When am I going to crack? (I got really close to this last week when I fell ill)
Another noteworthy thing: although people have been nagging me to use one for the past five years, I have still not made much use of my day planner. I don't write down many assignments or due dates in it... and those I do write down I never check back on so it's alwasy a surprise. Mostly, I've written down after-school related activities, and half of those have been canceled anyway.
And before I knew it, my night had whithered away, and I have midterms tomorrow. Bummer.
So, in the end, it's cool to know that Lego has some pretty awesome games online off the Bionicle section... in fact, I don't really like the seventh Toa Mahri game because it mostly just copies the other levels wiht this big shoot out in the end. (And why does that part have to be based off Jaller's game! Whenever I play Jaller's game, my computer freezes up so I can't shoot the darn baddies... but they can shoot me. Drat.) This has probably been the most inventive Bionicle game since MNOLG II (which was very inventive in theory, just not a fun game in practice) The games are all live action and differ enough that you get to try something new each time. I approve of Lego coming up with such a great idea... I just personally don't like the games because i do poorly on them. (If any of you care, I was only able to beat the Hahli, Matoro, and Nuparu levels on the final games. Hewkii's still has too many bubbles, I can't steer Kongu away from the walls, and the Jaller game has some sort of glitch for me) So, tomorrow when midterms are over, I'm going to play the Mars Mission game instead (where I left off after I died multiple times and quit tonight)
Well, what do you expect me to do on a Thursday night in a college dorm?
But I still made an acomplishment that only ever gets held by one person during these contests.
I got the lowest votes of all the comic entries!
Yes, in both topics (okay, so maybe it isn't that great of achievement, but still) I had the lowest amounts of votes for my artwork. And this wasn't a case of "well, I just happened to like the others better" (because the others were better) but just a plain "you artwork stinks!" Because the voting was "choose all the entries you like", so the only people who voted for mine were the ones who liked it.
So thus I managed to create the most unappealing comic artwork for the contest. Beat that.
Anyway, this just confirmed my great dislike of the artwork forums and I vow never to post another topic in there ever again (I'll just put theme here, where you can bash me on a more personal level).
