I'll be in class from 9:30am-4:45pm with 15 min breaks imbetween each class. This'll suck. *deep sigh*

Not that anyone wants to know, or that I care if they do. ^_^
My Journal, hahahaha.
Let's see.... Fundamentals of Computer Science 1 Lecture (a.k.a. Java programming), World History 2, Calculus 3, Sociology, and (not so)Great Books 1.

My apologies To Emily and Dustin. I never got around to seeing you two over the break, sorry. I was just that busy.
To everyone on live journal, i've barely been online over the past 3 weeks or so. My apologies, and with my classes and my webcomic, I doubt i'll get around to going back to read the posts I missed. Sorry.

Ah well.
Gotta jet.

Stories from winter break coming soon.

15 kids just got expelled from college for doing something idiotic this past halloween. And I understand why. What i'm not sure of is... if it was right.

They made one dumb move, and are now marked for life... But then again... It was exceedingly dumb.
Yet at the same time... I'm angry.
If they had dressed up as native americans, or as muslims, or as chinese or japanese people and acted similarly... If it had been a black frat that had dressed up as hillbillys and run around being idiots... No one would have blinked.
I don't condone what happened in the least. I'm only angry because I know that the reaction would not be the same had it been anyone else...

I couldn't help but remember today...
Being the small girl who had barely become used to riding a bus to school in the past two years. Who didn't know she wasn't supposed to sit at the back. Who had bruises from being pushed down the bus steps and shoved out of seats. Because I was a white girl sitting in the wrong section of the bus, and I didn't understand why I had no right to sit there. I remember going to the school counselor in tears. I remember being told I was making up stories and over-reacting. I remember my mother trying to do something. I remember being told I was racist. I remember the counselor telling my mother she should do something about my lying and put a stop to this racist attitude I had. I remember being terrified of getting on and off the bus. Every day. I remember the only person who worked at the school who believed me and tried to help me and mom was the elementary school principal. I remember I was in middle school and Mr. Walker, the only black adminisrator being the only one willing to say something to the black girls on the bus who were a year older than me and pulling these stunts.

I remember learning what racism was was and learning the hard way what no one remembers.... It goes both ways....

I remember the fact that years later I was still scared of these girls. Scared they would get it in their heads to shove me down the bus stairs again. Scared they would get it in their heads to do something worse... I was a small kid anyways, and these girls were tall and a year older, one easily twice my size... And the three of them made me the bad guy. And I couldn't say a single thing in retaliation. Because that would be racist.

I... I can't condone racism. In any direction its wrong. What pisses me off is that no one would've given a shit if what had happened at that frat house had been anything but white kids being racist against blacks. And I would slap them if I knew those idiots. What in the hell was going through their heads?
I'm angry because someone's going to expect me to all but bow and scrape everytime a black kid gets the least bit offended. I've been there. I hated that. And it only upsets me because some people honestly believe anything less is racism. But only in that direction.

Go Auburn

They also wonder what I have against frats and sororities.
The frats? They seem to encourage blind following and rude crude, idiotic behavior.
Humanity? Everytime they accomplish something, no one believesit, it hasn't really be accomplished,or is ruined by people returning to it.

I hate that this:
http://www.stepshow.com/news/auburn/
happened.

I hate the lines it is going to draw on campus.
I hate that it destroys so much.
I hate that some of the people who are offended by this will likely group all whites into this category.
I hate that this is all over the news, and that people think this is typical of the university, of the South, of whites.
I hate that I will probably be scared to attend a black student organization event because of the hate this might stir.
I hate that the same feeling will be going on in the opposite direction.

And gods... I hate that it happened...

Well Dusty-kun, I told you I was writing an english paper on our favorite comic.
Sounds so funny, doesn't it? Well, figured someone might like to read it.
I still have some editing to do, it's a bit too long, but I wouldn't mind some feedback. It's a critique, supposed to connect it to American society... Hah. Good for a laugh a least.


Poison Elves:
A Tainted View of Black and White


__A change in the general attitude of society has become rather clear in recent years. What was once clear-cut good versus evil situations are no longer seen that way. The increase in knowledge and acceptance of other cultures via the Internet, classes, exchange students, TV, books, and comics has created a greater tendency towards cultural relativism, the idea that morality varies with region and cultural background. In recent years, people have become more prone to insulting political leaders and coming up with government conspiracy theories than they were several years ago. People do not trust all the decisions made by the government. Partially, perhaps, this is due to the government trying to make things into a "we're right, they're wrong" type attitude, which many people cannot honestly believe. Also, trusting the government would mean believing that they were a clear-cut good; people don't really accept that anymore. In the past few years, thanks to varying sources, an increased amount of awareness and knowledge of other cultures, as well as general misanthropy among young people, the line between good and evil has been fading from the minds of society.
__Comics are one way to see these feelings reflected. Twenty years ago, most comics had a basic good guy, an all-American boy, superhero, justice lover, and these bad guys, who committed crimes, wanted to take over the world, and did not have a single good trait. Now most heroes have a dark past, and in older comics, would have been the hero's nemesis. They break laws, do bad things, but they are still the heroes, because where they are coming from makes perfect sense to the reader. Poison Elves is an example of this change, with the "hero" being an Elvin assassin, with little regret for his field of work.
__Lusiphur, from Poison Elves, is not the kind of hero most of our parents grew up with. Probably the most obvious difference between Lusiphur and older comic heroes is that Lusiphur is an elf. Not your friendly Keebler-peddling variety either, he wears black, has a short temper, and is never without a weapon. Not long ago, you felt perfectly safe walking around alone at night, now, everyone seems to look over their shoulders for thieves, murderers, and rapists. Lusiphur knows you have to watch for that, and he is prepared for anyone foolish enough to go after him. Adding to that, you have his name, Lusiphur. It can be connected to the biblical Satan, Lucifer, but this Lusiphur gets angry about any reference to a connection. It once was a common assumption that you were either Christian or a devil-worshiper, and for some people, that is still so. But now you see more and more people who jump up to defend the idea of varying other religions being equally valid.
__Another major change between Lusiphur and classic heroes is his occupation. He has no dull day job that he leaves at a moments notice to go save the world. What few semi-normal jobs he has during the series, he either quits or gets fired due to his explosive temper and violent tendencies. Lusiphur is an assassin by trade and demeanor, and he will never try to argue that he is a good person. However, Lusiphur does not see his actions as right or wrong, just necessary to situation. Just as cultural relativism says morals change due to personal background, Lusiphur believes that what is right and wrong will vary from situation to situation, and person to person. "I've killed a lot of people... A lot... Sometimes for the right reasons... Sometimes just survival... I've never lost sleep over one of them because I believe, for one reason or another, everyone's got it coming to them." (Lusiphur, Sirius #2) Despite non-ideal occupation, Lusiphur is still the hero of Poison Elves. In comics a few years back, Lusiphur would have been the bad guy. The hero either would have killed him, or convinced him to "turn good" and become a sidekick, and the readers would have been happy with that. Now readers would not trust it, and expect Lusiphur to turn around and stab the hero in the back. People do not trust easily anymore, nor do they change easily. In the beginning of Poison Elves, Lusiphur is working for Sanctuary, an elite Assassin's guild in Mandthra(a major city). All the beginning characters are assassins and thieves, but you see them behind the scenes, on a day-to-day basis, and you meet these good, honest, friendly people. They just happen to kill and rob for a living. You meet them as actual people, not killers, and you see the kind of guys you might have hung out with at one point, and when you are reminded what they are, it becomes a feeling of that is just what they do. You may not be able to imagine a hacker as a good person, but if you learn your close friend is a hacker, it becomes just something they do; you do not suddenly hate them. It is not an uncommon situation in today's society.
__The government in Poison Elves could easily be seen as a reflection of our government. Lusiphur does not hold much, if any respect for it, as many people now do. It is not uncommon to hear someone call the president an idiot, or a politician a backstabbing liar. The Human government consists of police forces and mayors in each town, above that, we do not know the workings except that, like our own government, getting anything accomplished is nearly impossible due to "red tape." The mayor of Mandthra is more concerned about how much money he gets in his pocket than what is actually accomplished. Leader of the Blood Guard, a police group investigating Sanctuary, Vido, is not only obsessed with his goal to the point of violence towards other cops and anyone he catches, but he is also on drugs. This man ends up in the insane asylum; still ranting about the Sanctuary guild he never caught. The Elvin government is much like our own federal systems, lead by a council of powerful elves who vote on what to do, much like the senate or house. They are always scheming and backstabbing, making secret deals, much like how our "councils" work. Some of the most powerful leaders of the council are the secret ones, like Morachi, the leader of Sanctuary.
__People mock the government because it feigns perfect good, yet makes decisions that not everyone agrees with, and it hides certain policies, actions and agendas. "Since it does have the responsibility of running a certain populace with a certain level of sanity, it will never reveal its inner goals - the 'for the good of the people' goals. But you KNOW they delve into a bit of skullduggery now and again, in order to motivate itself towards its inner goals... These tactics would be viewed by the average citizen as an infringement on their rights... Which they are..." (Morachi, Sirius #3) Thus the government is not wholly good or bad, it does what it does for the benefit if the people, but the methods are not necessarily good, causing anger and distrust. Lusiphur is the embodiment of this disillusionment, taking it so far as to often completely ignore the laws of the governments, reflecting the rising popularity of anarchy in recent years. And common jokes of wishing to kill a politician were reflected when he killed the War-duke Aliwon over a pair of ruined boots.
__Other characters, like the wizard Tenth, also reflect the views of Poison Elves readers. While the fact that he is a wizard might make one think he would represent Paganism, and he does in so far as not believing in a true good or evil existing, but he comes closer to being atheist with offhand comments like, "Religion is a death fixation." (Sirius #33) Like anarchy, atheism has become a more common belief system than it once was, due to disenchantment with the honesty of churches, just as anarchy is disenchantment with the truthfulness of our government. Like Poison Elves author Drew Hayes does with his insightful starting notes on subjects varying from love to conformity, Tenth observes life objectively. "Life is a variable condition. It twists and turns and is, generally, unpredictable... You can learn as much as you think you can and still never know it all... So a true wizard's saving grace becomes observing life... More specifically, lives. But even this can become a bit mundane when it is realized, after long enough, everyone is the same..." (Tenth, Sirius #33) Then, there is the Purple Marauder, a mockery of the traditional comic book hero. He walks around in cape and underwear, and is invincible to an absurd point, dodging bullets, or even taking them without flinching. He makes long, loud, metaphorical speeches that are actually quite twisted and disturbing. He steals and tries to force his beliefs on others, all while playing the superhero. He is everything that has disenchanted people with government, society, and religion.
__In Poison Elves, as well as other comics I read, you can detect a definite trend towards erasing the line between good and evil. The author of Poison Elves reflects the attitude of his audience in his starting notes that usually analyze the lack of thought present in today's society or how love has been turned into something cheap. His copyright notices are self written, and vary each issue, threatening various methods of vengeance for stealing the product of his mind, in a world where the internet often causes people to not care about copyrights and license agreements as they download files, bootleg anime, and distribute others artwork as their own. Kids who play video games or watch anime, find the villains to be more realistic, more intelligent, and more understandable characters than they once were. Online the number of fan sites up for a villain of series or game versus the number for the hero will show the villain to have more hits. If you go read these sites, it is not because they like the guy for running around causing death, but because they can appreciate his character motives and storyline more so than they can the hero. Usually because the hero is pretty basic and one-sided, while the villain has deeper motives, and does not see his actions as wrong, just different, and often, necessary to better the world by erasing things, like the contemporary ideas of good and evil.

Woke up sick as a dog. Had to take a 9:30am Calc2 test in this condition. Got siccker throughout the day, as I attended classes from 9:30am to 5:00pm, only breaking for lunch. Went home, changed into my renn costume, and Beau and I headed to anime club. I was uncomfortable, tired, and just generally ill all through club, but apparently managed a decent cover job. I came home, tried to sleep, unsucessfully. I ended up throwing up what tiny bit of dinner I had eaten at the beginning of club, took some sudafed, went to sleep about 30 mins later.
- Wenesday -
Felt cruddy all day. Mom, over the phone, managed to get me to stay well drugged. Got a paid LJ account for my legend04 user name (used as an update notice for my online comic) as a gift from another comic artist. Went to Physics2 lab at 6pm. Learned standing for a few minutes without walking tended to make my knees want to go out. Came back, conked out.
- Thursday -
Stumbled through the 9:30-5 schedule again, feeling better due to drugs, but still stuffed and exausted. Went home. Stephen came over and watched som TV, while I talked to my parents on and off, ended up with Mums coming to visit friday. Took medicine, conked out, forgot my online Physics2 quiz.
- Friday -
Got up at 6am. Registered for classes at 7. Cleaned my apt before Mums arrived. Feeling much better, just a sore throat and low energy. Went to lunch with Mom. Came back, hung out. Jay and Beau came over, we all went to see the One with Stephen and Chris, hit Craker Barrel for dinner. I oreder chiken and dumplings, i really wanted it, so of course, five minutes after we order, they come back to let us know they're out of it... grr... I order something else that turned out to not be up to normal CB goodness. lukewarm and dry turkey and dressing... more grr... Chris feels the need to harass me all through this... So i'm not thrilled by dinner, embarassed by the antics of my tablemates. *glares at Chris, Stephen, Beau and Jay* Can we not harass me, wrestle over silverware and other such things during dinner? Aren't all of you older than me? *sigh* went back to my apt where Chris and Jay spent around an hour or more trying to hook up to my computer to get Inu Yasha episodes, and changing settings and shit on my computer without asking first. And yes, they were all set back, but dammit... ASK! He was still harassing me, and at one poit I kicked at him, and in pulling it, hit my knee on the table. It is now a very dark red spot, it was already purple not 2 minutes after the kick. Not to mention, I was stressed, exauhsted, and relapsing into sickness from pushing myself too much. Mom was exauhsted too, and uh, Chris, she was getting ready to throw you out, and she was kinda pissed about your dinner behavior too. She likes to be a part of the group, but she still wants the respect that elders/parents deserve, and she felt as though you ignored that respect factor, not to mention general manners. Anyways... After everyone left, Mom and I pretty much immedeately went to sleep. This wasn't until almost midnight though. Hello, buddy people, I was sick, Mom had driven over 4 hours, staying that late was not cool. And we tried the entire hint thing, but some people are too damned dense sometimes.
- Saturday -
Woke up, my head was stuffed, and my throat hurt. Mom made breakfast. I finished todays comic page. I couldn't get the comic to even upload, ftp issues. Snooping online found out about sword production for the LOTR movie. *swoon.love.mustget* United(goods sword company) is making Sting(released November) Glamdring-Gandalf's sword(released December), and the sword of the Witchking(released December), with more to come at each movie release, December 2002 and 2003. (http://www.unitedcutlery.com/rings.html _ http://www.triadbusinessonline.com/bladesbybrown/lordoftherings.html _ http://www.eknifeworks.com - search Sting) Mom and I went to do groceries. I was exauhsted again, just from grocery shopping. Oh, and I'm loosing my voice, very badly. We came back, put up groceries, did some stuff to deal with roaches, which were just starting to make an appearance in my apt. We went to Applebee's and had white choclate and walnut blondies with vanilla ice cream and coffee. We then went to BAM. I got Magic's Promise and Magic's Price, two books of the Herald Mage series by Mercades Lackey. See Laura? I'm trying it! I dunno, though, up until the last part of Magic's Pawn I wanted to drop kick Vanyel and his wimpy attitude, gods know he needed it, but the wingbrothers just made the book for me. Almost elfg-like guys, long silver hair... Damn, I have some sort of weakness for that... Also, the store had this great LOTR stuff, which was neat, especially the poster-sized calendar, with a pic of the blond elf-guy as one of the months... *fangirl.swoon* BAM also had these lovely LOTR bookmarks, with THE ring attached to them. I now have one, and the ring is on a little satin cord around my neck, it does fit my fingers, but then there's that entire invisible thing to deal with, so, you know.... ^_~ Anyways, Mom left for home. I got in my Inuyasha(read Sesshoumaru) wallscroll and keychain, both of which kick butt. The wallscroll is actually really small though, but it has these red tassels, so it just looks right anyways.

Anyway, that catches everyone up.

I'm going to AWA (Anime Weekend Atlanta) friday. Remind me and I'll post pics later on.
I worked at the religious Fair on the concourse today. Pretty fun. One woman was worried for our souls, one girl was terrified of being in our shoes, and for the last hour, Dave argued in circles with a group who tried to tell us there was only one Truth (with a capital T) and it had to backed by scientific fact. And what we believed couldn't be Truth because it was too open and wasn't easily backed. And the Bible was the Truth because it could be traced back so far, and it was perfectly accurate despite all translations, etc, etc....
Otherwise... it was fun. I'm sunburned and tired now.

How strange things are.
I thought that college would change me.
I wasn't completely wrong. College has changed me. I'm more mature and more open than I was a year and a half ago, but no more so than I would've been were I still in high school. I've changed, but I'm still within the path of change for myseld that i've been on for a while now.
It's strange.
I'm hanging out with a whole new group of people, yet it's still the same in ways.

There's three basic group of people I hang out with.
In high school:
There were the people I hung out with in class. We had nothing in common except being generally good people and good students. (read: we were the "brains", the kids you worked with in groups because they were smart and would do all the work.) Very few of them saw me outside of class.
There were my "real friends", the people who shared my beliefs and world veiws, or were at least sympathetic to them. These were the kids who hung out with me outside of class. We were troublemakers occasionally, loud as a group, rebels when it suited, and outcasts always. These were the ones I felt actually gave a shit about me in the long run. We were jokingly known to each other as "The Crackhall Group"; private jokes, don't worry, no real drugs involved... well not for all of us, and not around me.
There were also the people I knew vaguely. I called them friend, but I was never sure why. We hung out occasionally. United Way events, band kids, between classes, one or two football games, etc. I never expected to see any of them again in my life.
Then there were my truest friends. The ones who I was attached to from the instant I met them. Soulmates of a kind. I could tell them damn near anything. That, is a very tiny group. They were pulled from my other friends groupings. That doesn't exactly count towards the basic three though.
There were other friends, and some overlaped, but i'm trying to genralize.



........I'll finish later..........
elfgrove: (SMILE  ^_^)
I thought i'd let you guys know, especially you anime fans, looksat Jenni, Aaron, Laura, etc.... that Beau just finished downloading the entire Ayashi No Ceres/Ceres: Celestial Legend series fansubbed of the net the other day, and I have burned copies of the files. *^_^* I've seen through episode 6. hee hee hee.

Now you must come visit me! LOL


And, Brett and Amber from Pantheon came over around 5 today, to visit, see my apt, etc. We ended up going to Jane and Kristina's apt to try to have the 5 of us go to dinner together, but they had plans, so the 3 of us went to Applebee's. We talked about our parents and their reactions to us being pagans, and then just exchanged high school stories. It was fun.
Then when I got back to my apt, Matt called asking about our English assignment. Poor guy, 20 pages is a lot when you can't read. ^_~ It was funny though, 'cause I almost called him about the assignment earlier today. ^_^
elfgrove: (SMILE  ^_^)
^_^ It's so cool.
Matt's in my English Comp 2 class. LOL. I didn't think there was ever a chance of having a class with him. Coolies. That's neat.
As for my other classes, people I met in Physics lab last year tend to show upin all my other classes. ^_^:
Derek is in my Engr Phys 2, and the same lab and my Prin Of Micro Econ class,
the blond girl who has Calc 2 and Engr Phys 2, class and lab with me(I can't remember her name ^^;;),
the blond guy with the boy scout stories Is in the EP2 class and lab too, I think (can't remember his name either ^^;; I'm really bad with names....).
Marcus is in the EP2 class and Lab,
Ben is in the EP2 class and Lab, i think,
and Dave I think is in my EP2 lab.

Coolies. *^_^*

INTERNET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I love the internet. I missed it!
It took them until today to get me hooked up, but I'm online, and i'll get to updating my comic as soon as possible.
It took them over a week to put in my modem, even though it should've gone in monday...
I cooked all by myself for the first time friday night. Cheer for me. I made meatloaf, and Matt, Dave and Beau all came over to eat. And they liked it. *^_^* hee hee.

Anyway, just to let you know, I'm back, I'm online, I'm stressed, and classes start Monday... *BIG SIGH*


Everyone at home,
I MISS YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!
And, I LOVE YOU GUYS!



Shlnbard ~
You better have recorded Elm's speech for me. ^_~ You ready for classes? Good luck! I love you, come visit me, you kooky little elf. ^_~
Liathano ~
Hey, I'll never jump on you about the T-kun age thing, just don't fall so deep in love you don't take care of your own life, k? I really doubt that'll become a problem. Follow your heart as loudly as you wish, you are the Thunder Maiden. ^_^
Belisamainion ~
You and Mike are soo kawaii. I'm glad you're in love. See Liathano's note for some basic advice there though, k? ^_^ Sorry to hear about the "persecution" at school. Welcome to where I was then. The only helpful thing I can say is, look to times ahead, it'll get better. You're gonna love college. You should try to make Pagan Pride Day here in Auburn, it's a Pagan festival type thing on campus, mostly a "we're here, accept us, learn about us" thing, but it's fun. It's on a weekend, and you can crash at my place. I'll post info in a few minutes.
Silverstrata ~
You chi blasted someone at school!!!!! I want a story, and I want it now! ^_^ I agree with Jenni, you are persnickety about your car, but it's funny. Can I ask a dumb question? Confidence? When did I give you confidence? I defineately believe you can do anything you want to, and support you, but what specific thing did I do recently? ^_^ Welcome to the world outside the darkness... It sucks, You're gonna love it!
DustyX ~
Sorry to hear about it. Keep strong. I'm here if you ever need to talk.

Okay, All you guys need to come visit. Just call me whenever you can make it. You can crash in my apartment. Bring a sleeping bag though. I'll post my phone number and address in a locked post, cool?

Love!

i haven't been able to acess LJ for a while, so... sorry i dissapeared.

Not much is going on. I'm moving to Auburn not this friday but next. So that should be odd. *sigh* My brother starts back at school tomorrow. Jenni's coming over to hang out tomorrow. I should be hanging out with Rob friday... I'm car-less. It's getting a paint job. It'll be blue.
Page 10 of my comic went up today. http://legendoffour.keenspace.com

I saw the weirdest lightining the other day. It flashed to fill up the entire sky, then pulled in on itsself to form a ball, then dissapeared. This happened at least twice. It gave off some really odd energy. And I gathered a good bit of it.
I used it to make two astral pendants a day or two later. One is a flat circle of translucent white stone, like moonstone,with a carving of a cloud and lightning on it, and the other is a dragon of the same material. As I formed them I kept reffering to the energy as being the "ancient magic" in my head, but couldn't define what that meant. I'm giving the lightning pendant to Jenni.
elfgrove: (You ask me one more question and I'm bea)
hmm... I lost my temper a bit yesterday. The thing was, I knew who was posting anonymously on the two entries that had no hint of who it was.

I misplaced the target of my anger somewhat.

Anonymous posters don't really bother me. Sure I'm curious, but who isn't?

What got on my nerves yesterday was that the person doing that was doing so for no reason other than to spite me.

[bitchy anger release]
     Last time I saw him, whether intentional or not, the way he acted made me feel as though he viewed me as the cute little kitten. Little oh so adorable thing with some claws, but nothing that could really do damage. Something inferior. Looking down on people, you could say, is one of my pet peeves.
     Yet he wants to be my friend. But he often makes me feel like he's looking down on me. I'm short yes, and maybe I've never seriously damaged him, but I don't do that to friends. He has no idea how much he angered me that evening, me and my friend who was visiting. She could have and would have seriously hurt you if she hadn't thought I would be angry later.
     So yeah. I'm kinda mad at you right now. You seriously upset me then. And now you hint enough to make it obvious I know you without indicating whom it is, and proceed to comment on some personal thoughts. And claim I'm just like you.
     Just to let you know, that annoys me as well. No one is just like anyone else. When I feel like I understand someone, I say as much, but the sentence is usually followed by "but I'm not in the exact same situation as you, so I can't be sure". Or something to that effect. You have no idea just what happened in my past that made me how I am today. There were a specific couple of events that made a lot of why I am the way I am. It is a very personal thing, and it was/is a very hard thing to have as a part of me. And it belittles what happened to say you're just like me. I honestly don't believe you can know what I've been through, what I go through, day to day. Do not ever claim I'm just like you.
     I do everything in my power to prevent people from ever having to go through what I've been through to become who I am. That is the sort of thing I intend to die before I let it happen to any of my friends. Never say you're just like me.

[/bitchy anger release]


*sigh* Anyways. Sorry to anyone I pissed off, upset, or just generally offended yesterday. I've been frustrated at my friend for a while now.

I called the people where i'm supposed to be leasing an apartment in the fall this afternoon, to check the status of my lease/application/whatever. I submitted the info and every thing in January to be sure I got a place to live this fall, and oops... We can't find any records of you... Wha-? We gave you a deposit check! Anyways. My mom called after I got off the phone with them and was about to become very nasty, evil mother creature. They found it. Apparently there was some miscommunication and they were looking in the wrong file grouping. I do have an apartment...

Yeesh. I was so worried I wasn't going to have a place to live fall semester....

Wow...

"It is the curse of the weak to destroy what they don't comprehend because the unknown frightens them. Rather like a child that is afraid of monsters under the bed but is afraid to light a candle and explore if there is anything really there at all. Instead they lay there all night, shivering in dread, for no other reason but stupidity and cowardice. They don't face their fears because they don't want to understand the nature behind them. They don't want to see their own failings. They have to demolish everything that makes them nervous or frightened because it makes them feel big and powerful when in reality, they are nothing more than ants."

I'm a little surprised at the e-mail I got this evening. I sent an e-mail to check up on a friend, or at least, I like to think of him as a friend, at college. In the reply, I found out he knew about and read my LJ. I was surprised. And a bit embarassed I think. More surprising to me is going to be if once he sees some of the friends locked posts in conjunction with a couple of the earlier unlocked ones he still speaks to me. I'm shocked he hasn't written me off as crazy and not worth talking to already. We'll see what happens. It's actually a pleasant surprise.

I got to talk to one of my crushes from college today. I was happy to talk to him, but gods, through the entire coversation I really wished he was here so I could ask for a hug. I'm really just so upset about everything that happened with Mark in the past two weeks I just really wanted someone to hold me for a little while. I mentioned the job, but he didn't seem concerned so I didn't go into it. What I wimp I am...

Now I better hope he doesn't see this and find out that I like him. He has no clue on that... Luckily.

Jenni, the only person I have that I really feel as if I could tell her anything, is away in London until the 4th. I met her boyfriend, Aaron when I came home for the summer. He seems nice, and he and I are starting to become really good friends. Jenni truly trusts him, which if you know her really well, she doesn't give hardly anyone the level of trust she gives him, she told me i'm on that small list. I was glad to hear that, because I'm the same way and she's on my small list. After dojo yesterday we just sat outside and talked for an hour. We talked about my webcomic i'm getting ready to put on keensapce, if the account ever gets created, and weird dreams we've had over the years.
