Western So Far

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Oct 03 2012 · 113 views

I've been here for well over a week now, and aside from a heavy bout of homesickness on Sunday, I've been doing alright.

My roommate's fairly quiet, but friendly enough. (She plays Minecraft, so props for her.) We're in a suite-style room, but unfortunately it doesn't make the room very big, since we have to share a bathroom with the other two girls on the bathroom's other side. They're alright, but they don't talk to us very much, save when it comes to things like the bathroom itself and who's showering.

I only have three classes this quarter: English 101 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (figured I should get that out of the way so I can get to the creative writing courses), Greek Mythology on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and Graphic Novels on those afternoons.

Can't really say much about English, since we're just starting off. I'm finding that Mythology's my favorite, but you can't go wrong with a class that has you reading Watchmen or Maus for the curriculm.

So far, my only complaints are that the food portions need to be larger and the Humans versus Zombies club needs to get rolling. I didn't bring my Nerf gun for a paperweight.

So Borderlands 2 (and college inbound)

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, Video Games, School Sep 20 2012 · 110 views

My only real complaint is the fact Zed doesn't sell health packs anymore.

Aside from that, this is probably the best sequel I've played. I'm only a level 17 Siren right now, and I've got a lot of awesome guns I'm not trading out for anything.

Though I do wish Claptrap was less obnoxious this go-around. -.-

In other news, I move into my college dorm on the 23rd, and my stack of textbooks is immense. Note to self: check in on what's required reading before you sign up to the course labeled 'Graphic Novels'.

(Yes, Western does offer a course on Graphic Novels.)

BrickCon

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Sep 12 2012 · 164 views

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to come this year, mostly because Western's fall quarter starts about a week beforehand. Unless I wind up joining a Lego club that decides to go en masse, the chances are slim.

Next year is a bit more probable, though.

Recovering From Graduation And Grad Night

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Jun 15 2012 · 116 views

I got back from my grad night party about .... three-ish hours ago? XD Still tired despite catnapping in certain parts of it. Might get a few more winks before I do anything productive today.

Definately a lot of fun, though I still would've liked to have kept my internal clock intact by the end of it. =P

Anyway, my high school years are officially over; might throw up a picture my mom took of me after commencement. (Which, incidentally, had a med-evac helicopter land nearby during the last half of the ceremony.)

Busy Week Ahead

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Jun 08 2012 · 115 views

  • Monday: Finals (+ Senior Awards)
  • Tuesday: Finals
  • Wednesday: last day of school for Seniors
  • Thursday: Senior breakfast, graduation, graduation party
  • Friday: go out to dinner with fam
  • Saturday: family dinner part 2
Not mentioned: the probable sleeping-in I'll preform for most of Friday; grad night goes until the morning and we're not allowed to leave until it's over. xD

I can't wait. :br:

So While The Forums Were Down...

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, Metals, School, Life May 03 2012 · 88 views

I did stuff.
  • Pestered Mark about the second buckle, a Hau I'm casting (which I might sell at BCon, assuming I get down there this year), and various other things
  • Played Borderlands with one of my real-life friends
  • Finished the final section of my senior project and started pulling together my notebook
  • Got a package from Watashi Wa in the mail (TransNeon Miru ^^)
  • Worked on a commission from Swert
  • Got hit by end-of-the-year stuff like a ton of bricks
Just six more weeks until I graduate ... at long last.

(Oh, and Ak might be coming to Seattle over the summer! ^^)

I'm Pleased

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Video Games, School, Life Apr 07 2012 · 67 views

My Borderlands topic didn't crash and burn the moment I hit the 'post' button. :P

Unfortunately I have to go back to school on Monday; spring break's almost over. Sigh. :(

... only thirteen ten more weeks until graduation. =D

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow ...

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in School, Life Feb 29 2012 · 60 views

It has been snowing pretty hard outside since 1st period, and I can't stop looking out the window. It's beautiful outside. =D

Granted, it's not sticking, but hey -- it's a nice way to end February, and it's provoking a lot of singing of "Let It Snow" in and out of class. :P

EDIT: Scratch what I said about it not sticking; it's starting to pile up. Maybe my starting to listen to Daft Punk had something to do with it. xD

V-Day Exchange, Day One: Heart Shaped Box

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in School Feb 08 2012 · 71 views

My French class is doing a Secret Valentine exchange. I was on the fence about it initially (since I'm saving up to get Minecraft and Skyrim), but what the hey, it's cool.

We have five days, each with a theme:
  • Wednesday: Candy Day
  • Thursday: Colors Day
  • Friday: Hobby/Favorite Things Day
  • Monday: Crafts Day
  • Tuesday: Traditional Day
I got a pretty heart-shaped box with dark chocolate, sugar cookies, and Sour Patch candy. ^^

Definately saving the box; as I wrote that I'm a gamer enjoying Borderlands and Halo for Friday, I'm interested to see what I get. :P

(I got my Secret Valentine Skittles and jelly beans, BTW)

I'm In A Good Mood

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in World Wide Web, Toa Seneca, School, Life, BZPower Feb 02 2012 · 86 views

... and have been for at least four days now.

Not even trolls and irritating finals can dampen my spirits now. ^^

(Anyone who's read Ak's latest journal entry on [Removed. Mentioning sites with commenting systems is not allowed.-Nukaya] probably knows what I'm talking about. :P)

I Got A Letter Back

I've been accepted to Western Washington University,

Writing To-Do List

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School, World Wide Web, Writing Jan 10 2012 · 77 views

  • Start work on my Valentine's Day special
  • Start the collaberation SS project Kagha and I are planning
  • Outline a plot-guide for my senior project
  • Wrap up Chapter 13 of Wings and post it.
Seems managable to me. ^^

Something That I'm Slightly Concerned About

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Writing, World Wide Web, School, Life Jan 08 2012 · 50 views

My USB drive is missing. The drive that has all the files of my writing, including the (nearly-complete) thirteenth chapter of Wings.

....

.... *resists urge to use the freak-out emote*

EDIT: And to top it all off, my Christmas gift to Akaku (which I mailed on the 16th of December) seems to have gone to LA for some reason and died. At this point, I'm considering trying to get it back and mailing it again when his birthday rolls around. <_<

Nooo

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School, World Wide Web Jan 02 2012 · 55 views

I've got to go back to school tomorrow. :(

@Akaku and Kagha: Tonight's the last forseeable time I'll be able to RP with you for a bit, and I won't be on as long. School night and all that stuff. I'll get on whenever I can, though.

Resolutions

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, Video Games, School, World Wide Web, Writing, BZPower, Toa Seneca Jan 01 2012 · 71 views

Soo New Years.

Won't offically be that in about an hour, but w/e. :P

My list:
  • Kill Volterix personally, for the second time (in the Seneca AIM RPG)
  • Successfully moderate the upcoming Seneca AIM Transformers RPG
  • Finish Wings (and torment Japoro all the way)
  • Wrap up my senior project (first 6 chapters of my novel)
  • Graduate from high school
  • Turn 18 and become a legal adult
  • Get into college
  • Dodge being someone's official girlfriend
  • Finish and publish aforementioned novel
I think that's a good list meself. Anything else that's good is just gravy. ^^

Last Day Of School For 2011

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Dec 16 2011 · 70 views
School, ending, vacation, yay
I just have two more periods (and one more test) until I can sleep 'til Christmas.

My personal goal? Finish Chapter 13 of Wings before then.

French Research Paper

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, School Dec 02 2011 · 53 views
French-Caribbean desserts, yum and 1 more...
  • Find five French-Caribbean desserts & their recipes
  • Bring said recipes into French class on Monday and get them approved.
  • Select one and make it.
  • Bring dessert in on the 15th for class' general consumption
Okay, technically it's not a research paper, but ... :P

Life Strikes Again

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Life, School Nov 27 2011 · 50 views
School, little computer time, ugh
So yeah, I just had my computer time (and thusly, my internet time) sharply reduced until I can hike up my French grades.

>.<

Apologies to the Retribution crew; I'll post when I can.

French Homework Meets The Nerd

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in School, Video Games Nov 06 2011 · 49 views

Assignment: "Write a 400+ word fairy tale for the second year students. Include a glossary of extra words and one illustration. You can't use online dictionaries; Word-processed rough draft is due on Monday, kthxbai."

Me: -.-

The solution? Take Metroid and transplant it into a fairy-tale setting.

Samus is now a magically-enhanced knight, complete with magic armor, weapons, and spells.

Ridley is now a dragon with ogre minons.

The Chozo are now elves.

The Metroids are now fairies that try to eat you. (Was initially going to use pixies, but my teacher's French dictionary doesn't have the word for pixie.)

Now, if only Word-processing in French wasn't so cumbersome ... <_<

Welcome

These halls have seen much. From tales of heroes and friendship to tales of villains and death, from stories familiar to the ones out of our world, they have seen them all.

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.

They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.

Join us at your own risk.

The Toa Seneca And Their Wares

Who We Are: "Seneca" means "place of stones" in a certain Native American dialect. This relates to the Amaja Circle on Mata Nui, the story-telling pit where the Turaga used stones to represent various points of a story. In some way -- be it through Role-Playing in the RPG forum or CoT, writing stories in the Library, or creating comics in the Creative Outlet -- we all tell stories to others. By ourselves and with the aid of others, we bring these tales to life. We are the Storytellers. We are the Toa Seneca.

Quote-A-Monium


Nuzar the Pinapoconut : That is just plain cute! Kopaka's expresiion is priceless.



Turakii #1 Lavasurfer : Kitty ears for Mata: $6 apiece at Hot Topic

Shrink ray to make them fit in teacup: $200,000

Kopaka expression once he discovers what the others are about to do to him: Priceless



~La Pantoufle Seule ~: OOC: ME TO THE RESCUE. -fanfare plays while I jump off building-

-falls-


Kothra: OMG! BAD INFERNA.


Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.


Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.


Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!


Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.


Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.


Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.


Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?


Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.


AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"


Dalek: I guess I can blame this confusion on your being knocked out with smoke. You are currently in a cell, with LK in the cell to your right, Tahu01 in the cell to your left, and Turakii in the cell to the right of LK's. I turned on Tahu01, knocked you all out, and stuck you in these cells. Now I'm gonna hold you all for a ransom of 500,000 widgets each.

Smeag: WHAT! I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS! *BURSTS INTO COMPOUND* WHO WANTS A PIECE OF ME?!?! *PROCEEDS TO KNOCK OUT ALL THE GUARDS* *SMASHES HEAD THROUGH NIKI'S* CELL* I'M HERE TO RESCUE YOU!

Dalek: *teleports Nikira to Smeag-proofed cell* Pay the 500,000 widgets, or I test my new ray gun on her! >=D

Smeag (in Nikira's profile): There is no such thing as a Smeag-proof cell. My blundering bombast overcomes all. As you can see, I've already rescued her. >:3


Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.


Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.


Along with pretzels and assorted hair products.



Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?



Amph's gonna die?

*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*



Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><


(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47

Mangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ

Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP

Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =P


Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL

Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks! :P

More Quotes

Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*


Necro: Wait.


If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?

KNEEL BEFORE ME


Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns

King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE


Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast. :P


Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"

Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."

Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs

Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna. :P


Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD

Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha? :P

Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.



HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
OR ARE YOU GOING TO USE VERT BECAUSE YOU'VE INJECTED THE SERUM GASP GASP GASP GASP.
..
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
-in denial-

Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice] :evilgrin:



Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator. :P




HN (in KG): OOC: ZOMFISH I SEE WHERE YOU’RE GOING WITH THIS INFERNA
O_O
YOU ARE GENIUS. XD




Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
