I hate trucks.

9 Dec

Soooooo…my weekend..well, it was planned really well, right? Wellll, half of the things I planned to do never happened. Why? Because of my damn truck. >_______________< So here’s what happened:

On the way to Baytown where Meaghan, Logan, Will, and I were going to see The Golden Compass and tons of other things, the light “Check Gages” comes on. After Will looks over my gages, it seems fine and we think it’s just faulty because my truck is somewhat old. So thinking nothing is wrong, Logan starts his myspace picture taking ritual.

Once we get on the highway, I notice that there are plastic bottles flying out of the back of my truck onto the road…on the highway. Yeah, it was freaken dangerous. Plus, at this time I notice my battery is dying. So, we pull over, on the highway shoulder, taking care not to turn the car off and try to control the hundreds of plastic bottles in the back of my truck. Why are these bottles in there in the first place?!? Michelle wants to recycle them, but never got them out of my truck. Thanks Michelle. So, after fixing all of that, we head out on the highway, now changing our plans from Hobby Lobby to Sears.

Once we get to Sears, we get a check up and decide to take a tour of Sears while we there. It was fun. We watched the beginning of Transformers and tried out the exercise stuff.

Then we go back and they tell me that I need a new battery, which would cost $53. Ok, I can do that, whatever, just let me get out of here. So thats all good. THEN, they tell me that I need a new alternator and without that, I have no lights and my truck would only run on the battery, which is not good. So I’m like ok, how much is that? $277. I didnt think I could afford. At all. So, with my mom at work, my step dad no where to be found, I opt to call my grandpa. So I get his credit card number and think everything will be ok. THEN they say that there are no more alternators, so the truck has to stay the night at Sears. >_______________________<

Luckly,

Logan’s family was in Baytown for to see the choir concert that their mom was singing and that we could hopefully see as well, so they helped me out. Logan’s dad, who can fix nearly anything, said that they were asking wayyy to much money for that and to just leave. I was able to make it to Autozone, where I got an alternator for about $200(with this ‘core charge’ that was $62 because I need to take back the old one to get my money back) Soooooo, we went to CiCis and Sallys. (WHICH WAS SO GOOD …I missed pizza..and after all that crap, oh man was it good xD ) Thennn, we saw Mr.Brown and Logan’s mom sing and play at the Christmas concert which was nice. I was sad because we had to leave for The Golden Compass…WHICH WAS AWESOME. xDD I am so reading that book now. I have only read The Subtle Knife. xD

So we made it home alive and the next day Logan’s dad put in my brand new alternator. Then I saw Juan and we watched UFC. Then we tried to fight like how they do in UFC. xDD It was fun. And he can pick heavy old me up on his shoulders and run. ^^ It makes me feel like I am not that big. Haha.

Then Logan, Meaghan, Carly, and I went to Dylons and Virginias Chirstmas party. It was fun. I got a $10 gift card to Wal-Mart. I like money. It adds up people. xD

Now I need to clean my room a bit and get ready for the band Christmas concert. Hopefully I can get someone to record all of it on my camera so my mom can see/hear us. ^__^

♥♥♥♥ Thanls stomponfrogs for fixing my layout. Everyone adore my new layout! xD ♥♥♥♥

Procrastinator for Life

4 Sep

I swear I am cursed. I blame it on my zodiac sign…(the animals, right?) Year of the Snake are even said to be procrastinators. I hate it. It’s about to be 1:30 in the morning and I am working on a project that I have had ALL summer and it’s due tomorrow. Yeah, I suck. But ya know what, I got most of it done before and today I had to finish up some stuff.

I have to admit, I am getting better with time management. But it seems when I think I am getting better at it, I all of the sudden loose it all. It’s kind of like my eating habits. I am eating really healthy and I feel great, and then I start eating bad crap again and feel like crap. ><;; Sometimes life can suck major ass.

Just to recap to see how bad I really did with this project, I decided to go ahead and list the goods and bads…

Good~

  • I had most of the book read before school: I had about 50 pages out of the whole thing left. Now that really isn’t good…at all. But when I found out the project wouldn’t be due until the next week of school, well, I relaxed.
  • I marked as I read and caught tons of similes and other things that went with the project.
  • I worked on the project throughout the week making my goal to have it turned it by Friday so I didn’t have to worry about over the long weekend.
  • I rock. Not really, but I can’t think of anything else, and this will make it seem like I had more good points…I swear there are more though…

Bad…

  • I waited WAY to long to read the damn book. My excuses? Work, Juan, Meaghan + Sarah, Cosplay, last Senior Summer, Me liking to make excuses.
  • Once I found out the project wasn’t due until the next week of school, I waited even longer. Bad. Bad. Bad.
  • I made a goal, but didn’t stick with it. I got carried away with other things and didn’t stay focused.
  • We got a new computer. NO MORE LAPTOP…HUGE ASS SCREEN…I mean, it’s unbelievable. It works. I HAVE MORE MEMORY…for the computer. xD It’s just awesome. Vista rocks. So today I spent a long time on the computer….half of it was doing homework, the other half..well, I was having fun! xD I guess that’s mainly why I am up this late.

So yeah…I want to change. I hate making excuses….I am already disappointed in myself. First project and I waited till the last minute..again. I want to make this change this year. Let’s see what happens.

Other than my problems and my new bad ass computer, Juan and I are going to see Tiger Army!!! YEAH! I love them and I am really excited to see how they are live. Oh I can’t wait.

Also, I got my dress for the Tatorfest -excuse me- Gatorfest Queen pageant. I know there is a big chance of me not getting anything(I got nothing last year..) so with this one, I am going to have fun and be myself. Say how I feel and do what I want. It shall be fun. Plus I got a kick ass dress and wonderful photos. Hopefully I can post them up some time.

Got some new shoes today along with a little pedicure for the pageant. Awesome. Bought the new Tiger Army CD…hopefully it’s good. Bought a bunch of crap…eh.

Oh…and guess who will be 18 on the the 14th?! Yeah, me. xD Awesome. Porn. Spray Paint . It’s all good.

School is starting…

26 Aug

Monday. Whoo. ><;;; One thing that is really annoying is being asked “When do you guys go to school” by someone who is in Texas and going to school as well. Why? Because the damn lawmakers of Texas made all of us Texan kids go on the same day. ><;;; But that’s just me.

I need to post more…but I am so busy now. I have been trying to get all my school shopping done while going to summer band and work. It’s all worked out and I am happy. xD Today I can finally relax and do what I want. Mainly because I don’t have to freak out over Frankenstein project!! YEAH! I almost done with the book though! And I really do like it. It’s really good. ^^ Just boring at first (but what book isn’t?)

Yesterday I got my hair did. xDD I love it. If I had a camera, I would take a picture, but I don’t. (I’m asking for one for my birthday *crosses fingers*) I got the pinup like bangs, a trim, more blonde(no more ugly roots!!!) and it’s all curled. I love it. I went to Sally’s also to pick up a curling iron because the only one I have is 1/2 of an inch round. Yeah, who in the world could use that one?! So I ended up spending $50 in there on stuff..just mousse, this heat protector, curling iron, and a brush for my bangs. ><;;; The only thing I hate about having money is spending it. xDDD Or rather in large amounts.

Juan came with me for this whole trip and got his hair cut too. He looks so cute. ^^ I’m so happy he came with me. I just felt bad when we got to the mall because we were both tired and we went ALL over the freaken mall looking for a backpack. So when we give up and head out of where we came through JCPenny, guess what we see: The EXACT backpack I was looking for. ><;;;; Oh well, it’s over and I have it. Oh, and plus Icing’s was having one of those awesome 10 for $5 and I got tons new stuff for my hair and some earrings xDD

My dad has been e-mailing me. This makes me very very happy. He is also planning to stay in Austin, which is awesome. I hope I can see him sometime soon.

I think I’m going to sew. I have a bunch of old clothes that need updating. ><;;

Summer is not long enough.

27 Jun

My life is so crazy right now, or at least in my head it is. I have so many different things I want to do but can’t because of work. I want to sew, cosplay, draw, design, fix some old clothes, read, play my new game, and tons more stuff. That’s the only thing I hate about my job: I have no time, or at least enough time to do what I want. But I shouldn’t complain. This will only help me and get me ready for when I leave high school and then have to juggle ten times more crap that has to be done. xD

Well, today I got the afternoon “off.” I still got paid like I was working, but I went with Valerie and the other kids to the Wildlife Refuge on one of our field trips for summer reading. We found two “letterboxes” that have been circulation all around Texas for about four years on one of them. It was really neat and we all got to sign it and then we stamped it. Really neat. ^^ On the way Juan and I danced to “Vanilla.” He started dancing first, for the record.

Yesterday I got to watch the movie “Bridge to Teribetha” ….at work. xD Hey, there was no one else to hand out drinks and popcorn! I have never read the book, so when I watched I was about to start crying my eyes out, but seeing as there were kids all around and a rather plump one in front of me always turning around to get more popcorn, I couldn’t let me tears go. xD When I saw previews for the movie, I had a totally different idea about it and I was actually really surprised. Wonderful movie and a great message.

Anddd, work just got even better! I mean, for a while I was starting to dislike it because of cleaning shelves. (I should really bring my PSP or an MP3 player to listen to…it’s just hours and hours of silence and knowing how much I have after I complete a shelve.) But today Valerie and I started moving around the YA area and some of the tables. She suggested that I decoupage the table in front of the booth. Of course I said yes and already have a large sum of pictures. I am going to use covers of YA books(not the actual covers, mind you. xD ) and anime pictures and have “Young Adults Novels” and “Graphic Novels” or “Mangas” around it….somehow. o___o I need to get a plan and see if I can come up with something in photoshop as well. I am excited for work now. 😀

Man, this is a really long post. Go me! Right now in my life I am happy but I just have so many different things racing through my mind. I really need to get focused and again, more organized. Oh yeah, did I mention that I am back from drum major camp? xD I had a lot of fun and met a lot of new people. Even though I was alone this year(no Erika this time) I still had a great time. Man, there’s another thing I want to do: work on my Fate of the Gods music. I can’t wait to conduct that show. I am so excited for marching season and for summer band, but I don’t want to rush my month of July. I mean, damn, it’s already about to the 4th of July!! I hate this.

But yes, I am happy. I have a plan once I am out of high school…but not a back up. o__o At this point, I am just praying that I get accepted to the school in New York City that I want to go to soooo badly. If not, I think I want to try Chicago, then Austin, and maybe even L.A. I just want to study fashion and learn all I can about sewing and everything around clothes.

*dork*

“Smile for me, won’t you?”

14 Jun

“You cannot say to the sun, “More sun.” Or to the rain, “Less rain.” To a man, geisha can only be half a wife. We are the wives of nightfall. And yet, to learn kindness after so much unkindness, to understand that a little girl with more courage than she knew, would find her prayers were answered, can that not be called happiness? After all these are not the memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen. These are memoirs of another kind.

I love that movie.

So much.

Once I got home today, I stayed on the computer a while and then decided to watch “Memoirs of a Geisha” again. I love that movie so much. I want to finish the book now. The book describes so much more about the traditions and what not. It’s all so wonderful.

But enough of one of my many obsessions. xD Today, work was fun. I have learned (well, I knew this, but I guess I remembered it very well) that I enjoy working with Valerie the most. It’s just so much fun. Today we finally shifted all the paperbacks down and made room for all the young adult books and mangas! I got to put up Gravitation today. ^^ I hope to spread the Gravi love even further…I would much rather that than Ranma 1/2 any day. xD

Today after work I tried to do the whole “create my own ringtone” thing but the place I found never worked with my phone. >> And I want “Darkwave Surfer” by Aural Vampire really really badly. xD I think even if I got the text to verify, I wouldn’t be able to download it because I have to subscribe for the web on my phone. >> It’s $6 a month…maybe I can get all I want in that time. In the mean time I will need to convince my mom and send her funds through pay pal. xDD

I need to once again go to sleep. For some odd reason, I have been waking up in the middle of the night. o__o I don’t know why at all, because I never have this problem. What could it be…? Hopefully I can sleep peacefully tonight.

I leave for drum major camp on Sunday. I get to drive three hours or so for the first time…by myself. o__o I have never gone that far anyway, and I have never gone so far as thirty minutes driving by myself. No Meaghan to enjoy fast food with and no Juan to yell out the window to cows. ;___; I will miss that. …and that’s why I have Harry Potter! *weirdest plug ever* xD ….I have this problem when I drive long ways that I tend to get, uh, drowsy. xD So I got the library’s copy of “Half-Blood Prince” *the talking book thing* …hopefully it will work. I need to get a head start though on it because it’s 17 cds long. Damn. xD I have been meaning to reread it anyways in anticipation of the last book^^

*sigh* I need to sleep or something like that. Juan said he will spend lunch with me. Hopefully he doesn’t forget. >>

….After spending some time looking at random xangas, I found this and just had to post it. xD

What Is Your HP Threesome? by elschan
Name
You Will ShagCho Chang and Luna Lovegood

So I get the hot asian with a british accent(or whatever) and that freaky chic…both women, mind you. xDD Juan would be jealous. About Cho, at least. xD

I have new clotheeeesss! :D

13 Mar

Juan and I went shopping(for the first time together..I think o___o three years together and this is a first) I got some cute stuff! ^_^ I got a super nice bra from Victoria’s Secret. But when I told my mom that I got it, and that it costed $45, she just called me stupid. I don’t care, I had the money(kinnnda) and I needed a new one really badly. So why not get one that lasts?! Anywho, it’s nice and soft, and really good. (Well, it better be since it cost $45 xD ) I aslo bought two shirts: one with a robot with a rainbow( He’s gay robot -RedVSBlue ref xD -) and the other with cute apple and fruity stuff. 0___o It’s really funny because I got these at Wet Seal, and when I think back to when I was in 8th grade or sometime around there, I would have never walked in there. xDDDD I was all “Hot Topic is the besttt.” I am sooooo glad I changed. Anddd, I bought some new jeans from Old Navy. When they say they are low rise, they mean it. o___o I tried some of those “skinny” jeans on(only because they were on sale for $17) and there is nooooo way I could wear those in public. I just have way to massive thighs and hips to wear them. ;__; Oh well, I guess everyone can’t be emo. xDD No, I really just wanted them because they were cheaper. x_x

…but I did buy something from Hot Topic…well, actually Juan bought it for me. ^_^ The two things I got were on sale, pretty much half off, and it still cost $20! I got this neat fabric belt that has pretty ruffles on it and this pretty necklace with beads and stuff. o__o It’s pretty. ❤ It really hate sometimes going in there. I mean, all of their clothes are soooo expensive and low quality! I hate it. And on top of that, Juan said “All of these shirts here my friends have.” So when you buy from Hot Topic, you have a 99% chance that someone you know or around you owns the same thing. x___X

Juan had more money than me so he bought me jeans and the stuff from Hot Topic anddd food.. <33 He got some extra money from his mom because he saved some money on the shoes he bought. (She gave him $100, he spent $40 *cough* I mean, $60 xD *cough* on the shoes..yeah!) He wanted to buy me a nice ring or necklace or earings, but I told him no. I didn’t want a ring yet, but I would accept earings or a necklace. xD But I really didn’t want him spending so much on me. ><;;; He loves me to much. xD And I love himmm. ^_^

*cough* This is a really long post. I guess this happens when you just woke up and ate some really nasty “Fruity Cheerios.” *dies* I want to sew…but play World of Warcraft..but then I have to go to work. Blahhh

Oh, maybe later I can use Juan’s new program he got! It’s a 12 CD program that teaches japanese!! The only bad thing is is that it dosen’t teach you how to read and write it, or as far as I have seen of it. Never know, it might. ^^

Meaghan is still in Florida..and hasn’t called me YET…I must send her a text message. I wonder how she’s doing. ^_^

EDIT ~

 ..now I remeber one of the reasons I made this entry….Meaghan and Juan are selling some things on this forum, because we do not want to go to ebay. There are a lot things there for sale for a pretty good price. ^_^ Plenty of games, some anime, DS games, and even a Gackt picture. ^_^ So please check it out. ❤ *Click here for Sale!*

“I am…Your…Vanilla”

30 Dec

Yum…I love that song. I was looking on a mp3 rotation site the other day, and the owner had a Gackt song up. She said that she was anti-Gackt, but she had a request for a Gackt song, just “any Gackt song.” So she put up one(can’t remember which one) but she said the reason she didn’t put up “Vanilla” was because even if you are anti-Gackt, once you hear that song, it has the power to make you dance and you will never forget it. xDD Well, I’m not anti-Gackt, but she is right. xD   …moving on now..


Don’t you hate it when you made this really long post, packed with stuff, and then your computer freezes because it has some icky porn virus? …I do. So, when that happens, I get unmotivated to write again, even though I want to. ><;; Stupid computer. The other day none of us on our AOL accounts here couldn’t get on. It said our passwords were wrong. So we all had to reset them. >< I have no idea what’s up with it, but I remember looking on the history and there being tons of porn. But I knew that no one could have looked all of this porn up. I mean, it was a lot for anyone. And it was all under that same day, and it was like 7 in the morning. (Granted, someone could get up in the middle of the night and do it. o.o ) ..still..Plus, I think one of the reasons we couldn’t get into AOL was the fact that my little sister was *supposivly* saying nasty things in chat rooms. But the time given of when she did this, she was with my mom. o.o …yeah…

Anywhoooooo….just one more week of holiday break left. I have so many things I want to do. I want sew, make some neat crafty things, play WoW, read…anything…gahhhh. First I need to clean my room. Damn…I might just do that later..

Oh yes, in the post that I had prepared but was screwed over by Internet Explore, I had pictures of Juan and I. ^___^ You see, for Christmas, I bought Juan the new PSP camera!! I’m glad I bought it like a month before Christmas because it came on like the day before Christmas eve. xD I think it took so long because I had to order if from play-asia.com, so it was coming from Japan, since the PSP camera hasn’t been released yet in the US. And Juan being “I need all the new PSP stttuuffff!!” ..I had to. xD But I made him really happy, making me really happy. ❤ He said it was the best gift anyone had ever given him. ^____^ Awww, I love mah Juan. xD

So while I was over there we had some fun with it. It came with a neat little game thing packed with things to do with the camera, like add text and cute things, and crazy templates to videos. But, it being in japanese, it was kind of hard to get working. o.o About a week later, Juan has the hang of it. He has made some really neat things, just need to get him to upload them. >>

But here’s the pictures we took together on the first night he had it. It was so much fun! ^___^

He’s so cute. xD

Here’s Juan first go at the japanese program. It’s cute, but just hard. >< Thank God for the little english that’s in there.

Like I said, cute. ❤

OH GOD! What happened to us!?!?

Awww..Juan is so funny. xD

This was me trying to be Miyavi. Has anyone ever notice how big this mans nostrils are?! xD


Today I finally got to spend some time with him. Stupid friends. xD He himself said he just wanted to some alone time, but he said I was the only one he didn’t mind. Awwww. He said some really nice things today. ^____^ …ok, I will spare everyone all this lovey-dovey crap…but I looovvvee him. xD ….*ahem* ….

Little miss Shannon reminded me in one of posts that the Diru concert will be here soon. Eek!! And she posted the cutest stuff on ebay. Must…start…designing. I think I might have something to do when I am done cleaning. Yeah!! ^__^ Thanks Shannon! ^__^

Ug..New Years Eve is tomorrow..hm. What am I going to do. … ug…Hope everyone has a good time. ❤
