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. đŸ˜€

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
