This semester is turning into hell.  I'm never taking another art class again.  I'm so glad I didn't officially switch majors yet. x_x

I knew art courses wouldn't be easy, but I had no idea how hard they actually were.  There's so much to do!  And you constantly have to come up with bullshit deeper meanings behind every art you make.  And the courses I'm in aren't really teaching me anything.  They're just sort of... abstract stuffs?  And very vague.  I don't even get a lot of it.  Everyone seems to be doing better than me too, possibly because they actually understand what they're doing, possibly because they haven't caught senioritis yet, possibly because they're just plain better artists.

German is no fun this semester either.  Apparently our teacher gives the most homework out of anyone in the department.  And he seems like a really nice guy when he's not teaching, or at least not teaching German, but as soon as he slips into German Teaching Extreme Mode he turns into this asshole.  He demands verbal responses for every question he asks, especially the ones where silence is the commonly accepted response ("Any questions?" No questions asked.  Teacher moves on.); I think that might just be a teaching style difference between USA and Germany (he spent the past few years in Germany).  So I kind of get the annoying "You will answer, you will answer now!" even if I dislike it.  What I don't get is why he literally shouts at us until we respond "loudly enough".  Why are you acting like a drill sergeant.  Stop it.

Oh, also one of my art courses has a departmental "party" at the end of semester as a "reward" for the students.  Attendance is fucking mandatory.  It's timing directly interferes with my rp group.

My comic probably isn't going to update this week at all, because on top of everything up there, I'm sick.  I really didn't want to schedule-slip the damn thing.  Fuck.  Sorry about the lack of updates, y'all, really.

Is slightly less horrible news, my laptop is coming apart.  It's less horrible because I'm getting a newer, better one.  That I'm going to have to figure out how to multi-os.  Because I love XP too much to let it go, and everything is Windows 7 now.  :(

I'm seriously considering dropping out of college over this workload thing, though.  Gah.  Everything I try is harder than the last thing.

Did I mention how much I hate art classes?

Saw a guy on campus wearing a pirate hat this afternoon.  Just wandering about like nothing unusual.  :O

Moved in! \o/

Don't have all the stuff I need because, with Dad out of commission, we could only take what would fit in one car.  Just have the essentials.  Short notebooks.  Need to buy one for notetakings!

Bah.  Tired.

Time for school soon!  I'm heading back to college this weekend.  Really hoping art classes will have a more doable workload.  And that less essay writing is involved.

Also toying with the idea of joining a third tabletop rp.  Hmmm.

I have been away from this account for ages.

Vacation happened (which I actually posted during) and then I got obsessed with rping and then I went to see [ profile] laetina .  So... sorry I've been vanished.

Lately working to build a campaign to play over the phone with laetina.  It involves my goblins!  (see: Stiltskein)

Now I have to get back in the swing of rping again... hopefully without disappearing from my personal account again.  Hm.

Got my first sunburn in about ten years today.  It stings.  Also is the color of a lobster.

Finally out of school and off campus!  This was a trying semester. Not really looking forward to going back in the fall.  :/

It was hard getting all that stuff in the car!  We had to toss a bunch of food from my fridge.

Why haven't seasons 2 and 3 of Xiaolin Showdown been released in dvd form?  It would make my canon review for Jack much easier.

Almost missed my fucking German final because I didn't read where it was being held.  Had to run down the Hill and up to HSS within five minutes while still recovering from my cold of death.  Had a hard time breathing by the time I got to the final BUT I MADE IT IN TIME


not happiness

Anyway, probably discontinuing the 30 days of blogging challenge because the remaining questions really don't interest me.

Found out yesterday that you need permission from the art department even to sign up for the major's prerequisite classes!  I don't understand why it is so many levels of hard to get into art classes.  Getting permission on Monday.  Hopefully.

A little stuck on the fanfic at the moment--but I'm supposed to be working on essays at the moment anyway, so...

Kinda bored.  Want to work on the fanfic. >:(

 Whew!  End of the semester is annoying.  So much to do! >:V

Been working on a Dragon Age: Origins fanfic.  It follows along the same story as the game (at least at first), so I'm primarily relying on character interaction to make it appealing.  Drew some art for it too, but I haven't scanned it yet.

Doo de doo.

Stayed up late to argue with somebody, instead of working on that second paper, because Someone Was Wrong On The Internet. Ugh. Way to go, self.

On a more positive note, on my second try I actually got everybody out of the mines alive! :D Am thinking of heading down the mines for some more leveling before meeting with the marquis. Worth it, laetina? Or not?? :O

 Trying to write two 5+ page papers and pack for going back to school.  One of the papers is coming along, and is already at the three page mark, while the other one is kinda stuck at page one.  Writing on the use of amplification in religion is hard!

Have taken several breaks to play Oblivion on the xbox.  Have packed the playstation already.

Damn.  I really need to get back to the dm of the new space game on my character.

 Sorry [ profile] laetina , I'm a bit tired to rp tonight.  

TruTV is showing basketball now.  This is the furthest they've gotten from true crime shows!  Am very disappoint.

Set up my xbox.  It's very simple!  The controller confused me for a bit though.  You can actually push in the sticks like buttons!  Also for some reason I can't get the hang of the right stick, but maybe I just need more practice.  Oblivion works much better on the xbox than the computer.  I prefer the computer controls for that one, though...  Hm.

Been trying to play ffx.  It's a bit more confusing to get started in than ffxii.  Also the traditional ff combat system did indeed confuse me!  I think I've gotten the hang of it now, but I think I prefer xii's.  I've reached a point in xii where I have to fight a bunch of monsters--and then, without a chance to save, I have to run from these unbeatable bangaa.  I think they're bangaa.  Anyway, they killed everyone because I got lost in the mines and also forgot to turn off gambits (so everyone on AI was trying to fight instead of run).  Now I have to go through half the mine just to run away again.  I hate being chased! D<

We celebrated my Dad's birthday by going to the movies and then going out to dinner.  I saw Red Riding Hood--which is a pretty good movie--and then we went to this nice sushi place that just moved into our town.  It was all lots of fun, right up til I threw up. >(

So I played FF for a while.  It's pretty fun!  I don't know what the combat's like in the other ff's, but the one I've got is pretty smooth so far.

 Switched from Kotor to Baldur's Gate.  Kotor was really good for expending nervous energy, and BG is not.  I mean, BG seems to be a good game and all so far, but there's something about it that makes me anxious.  Also it's really difficult to rp in BG.  The support characters I'm attached to emotionally aren't the best team set up, and I might have to switch them out for a better party...  But like I said, I'm emotionally invested in them, even though the necromancer only has four hit points and I've been PKed by four kobolds.  AD&D-style kobolds too, not those scary 4e kobolds.  If the party doesn't get tougher they can't fight what's getting thrown at them, but if they don't fight they won't level up and get tougher...  GAH

Still don't have the energy to rp Fr. Gil.  Maybe I should withdraw him temporarily from the rp or something.  gah

My doctor's putting me on yet another medication, so hopefully I'll start feeling better soon.  Still can't do anything.  Everything ether makes me anxious or is boring.  UNHAPPINESS

I've been playing Kotor, and putting up with vile bugs, but no more!  There's a sudden evil fps minigame that I can't get past.  It's so unlike the rest of the combat!  BAH  I was really enjoying the game, too!  But I suck so hard at fps.  D<

 Had to explain to my ex again why I don't want to date him.  Hopefully second time's the charm.

Am glad he asked again, in one way, because it's been weird getting the sense that he's interested in me without knowing if it's socially appropriate to bring it up.  I mean, he takes me out for dinner, yeah, but he takes his guy friends out too.

I hope it won't affect our games though--he's the GM for the cave-age game, and my ride to both of them.  I don't know if he's actually a nice guy, or a "nice guy", ya know?

Bah.  Fretting until Thursday, I guess.

This is a beautiful question, and I want to save it for in case I ever have the answer.

In other news, I passed a flock of robin cousins out exploring on my way to church.
