Geez, I haven't posted in a while (like a week!). Sorry about that.

How do you keep from killing your friends? Ha... That sounds very weird. I promise, I'm not actually homicidal... I'm just very very annoyed at two of my guy friends right now.

One of them is acting very stupid and I guess like he knows everything... I don't know how to explain it other than that.

The other... well I guess he was stupid a long time ago and I suppose is still not entirely over it? Which just annoys me because OK I ADMIT THAT I'M NOT ENTIRELY OVER IT EITHER. (You'd have to know what I'm talking about to fully understand this... but I don't want to post the whole story here.)


In other news, I spun out/hydroplaned in the truck today! Wooo.... Scariest moment of my life, basically. It was awful. The end.

Sorry, not feeling terribly descriptive atm. Hum. IM me? PellucidRatafia.

Woooo, I have no school today!

I got my Nintendo DS! It's red and IT MATCHES MY PHONE! :D I only have Scribblenauts right now, but that is fine because it is funfunfun. Also, I think I can play Gameboy Advanced games on it? Or Gameboy... or somewhere in the middle... I don't know, need to investigate.

I was at my friend Maggie's last night for a sleepover. We went to Starbucks with our friends Lauryn and Bryan, and their friend John (Jon?), who Lauryn wanted to set up with Maggie. Woo. Anyway, we got back, went to Blockbuster, picked out this movie called Session 9 (Allan, I know you blogged about this one before), which I really didn't want to see but everyone else did, and then went back to Maggie's house.

Well we watched the movie and ate pizza. Then just generally hung out, boys left, yadda yadda. Lauryn was very awake, I suppose, so she kept talking and reading a magazine and the TV was on a music channel but it was a bit too loud, so I couldn't sleep. Once she decided to go to sleep, the lights and TV were turned off. Fairly average. I closed my eyes, snuggled up with my kitty (stuffed animal from none other than The Boyfriend) and tried to sleep. Well... I'm not sure whether or not I got any sleep... I know the lights were on until at least like 12:30, and I remember being awake for a while... so perhaps not. Anyway, one of Maggie's cats (a real one) jumped up on the couch with me and snuggled up. Still, I could not sleep, and I began to be scared.

I get sort of paranoid at night... it's really awful. I don't know if it was the movie, or the fact that we were in the basement, or just because I'm always kinda freaked out when the lights go out and I've got nothing to see/listen to, but my level of fear just kept rising. It got to be 1:30am, and I was crying and having a hard time breathing. I guess that is something along the lines of a panic attack, right? So I tried to calm down, but the freaking out and the shaking got worse, so I just woke Maggie up, told her I was going home, gathered my stuff and left.

My mom was very confused when I got home, but didn't ask me anything after I said "a panic attack or something." I went to my room, and ended up finally falling asleep at like 3am.

UGH. I only remember this happening one other time in my life, and I don't recall why, but I remember it was for an actual reason. Last night was just weird and stupid.

Blah this entry is too long! So sorry! But yeah, that is my story. Peace!

To anyone who doesn't go to my school (so that's basically everyone but Maggie & Kailyn), Kairos is basically the group of international students who are attending my school (most of whom live with host families), along with a few American students. The whole idea is just to chillax together, to make friends, talk about life, worship God a little, and so on. Tonight was my first time going, and I have to say, I loved it. It was a little awkward at first, because I didn't really know anyone aside from a couple of the other American students, but it was fairly easy to just sit down and chat with people in a group, so that was nice. I'm definitely excited to see where this thing goes throughout the year. Hmm... if you were wondering, we have students from:


aaaand maybe some more that I am forgetting... I think there are 16 or 18 international students, so it's a pretty big group, but it still was easy to get along and have a good time with everyone. Yay! :D

In other news, I got my debit card in the mail today! Huzzah! I am excited to use it on something (i.e. a DS, haha) and also to take it to France with me, which is what its original purpose was. I still have yet to memorize my pin code, teeheehee. I'll do it soon.

I guess that's all I've got for now. Peace out, homies.

Ugh ugh ugh.

I hate it when my feet are too hot and I'm crying and my ribs are squished, especially when they are happening all at the same time.


On the other hand, I made a good choice tonight, and I will see how it goes. Going to test it out for a month and then reevaluate my decision afterward. (The Boyfriend and I are still together, fyi. The decision was nothing along the lines of breaking up or anything near that... just if you were wondering.) So we shall see.

I should, in theory, be getting my debit card in the mail within the next 3 days! Huzzah! I am mostly excited because then I won't have to carry around cash with me anymore, so I won't try to spend it all at once (again, in theory). I realllllly wanna get a Nintendo DS (or DSi or Lite or WHATEVER, as long as it's cheap), so I'm working on saving the smallish amount of money I have for that. Wheeee! :D

I watched this movie in my Doctrine & Apologetics class called "Lord, Save Us From Your Followers." We've actually been watching it bit by bit in class over the last week or so. I have to say, it was really good. The whole point was basically this guy walking around talking to people about Christians (sort of about Christianity, but more about the people who claim to be a part of it). What he found out (not so surprising), is that most people don't have a problem with the faith. They just have a problem with the followers. A lot of the time, Christians come off as judgmental, hypocritical, narrow-minded and so on. I've seen a fair share of this myself, and I'm sure at some points I've been guilty, too. But anyway, it was really cool, because he walked around and he just talked to people as though they were old friends, just loving them and being really cool. Most of all, he was LISTENING to what they were saying, instead of walking around preaching at everyone. Honestly, I really wish EVERYONE would listen a little more to each other. If we all loved each other a little more, and I mean loving by listening, reaching out in friendship, or even just going with the old standby of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all," I think the world would be just a little bit better. No, it'll never be perfect, but who says we can't try to cheer things up anyway, right? So yeah, if you're interested, you should definitely get your hands on a copy of that movie... It's pretty interesting (and fairly entertaining), and I think even to people of other religions (or lack thereof), it'll be a decent watch. (If you do see/have seen it, tell me about it?) ♥

I'm getting tired and I have a little homework to do, so I'll catch you all later. Peace!

I seriously think I've lost my mind. -_- Ask if you want the deets... I don't even want to post them on here. Gaaahhhhhhhhh.

In other news... I have a stomach ache. Too much pop. Yuck. (That's "soda," to some of you.)

I went to my friend Rich's house today. I got lost on the way there. O.O I've never been lost in my life, at least when I've been driving. I have an excellent sense of direction... just not when there's STUPID CONSTRUCTION involved and mapquest doesn't warn me. Rassin' frassin' friggum fraggum...

Buuuuuut it was super fun. We watched (the original versions of) Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street. Did you know they were both based in Illinois? Nightmare is based on Elm St. in WHEATON! YAY! Wes Craven went to Wheaton College, I guess... but I think he got kicked out? I'd have to go look him up to confirm that, but I won't right now because I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE IT. I have to say, the ending to Nightmare was... strange... I mean the whole movie was weird, but the ending... it's just one of those WTF moments, seriously. You should go check it out. >_<

Ummm.... nothing more to post, I suppose. Peace out.

p.s. Don't forget to keep clicking on those things over there -->

I remember where I was that day. I remember not knowing what was going on.

They shouldn't be showing that on TV.

How could that really happen?

Feeling strange.
I found out that Imogen Heap released another album. It's called Ellipse. I hope it's amazing. I'll tell you what I think when I listen to it all the way through? Right now I am about 30 seconds into the first song, haha.

p.s. I really love her a lot, hence why I want this album to be amazing.

p.p.s. Don't forget to keep clicking around on those things I posted on the right! :) It seems like such a small thing to do for such huge causes, right? Pretty exciting.

p.p.p.s. You should also check out I haven't played on it for a while, but I'm going to this afternoon. It's AWESOME and it gives... well, free rice, to people. Plus, it helps make you smarter. Double bonus points! SO GO CHECK IT OUT! :D

Sep 10, 2009

So I just found an old blog of my friend's (it's from our Freshman year), and there are only 3 entries, and I read them all... I wonder if I should tell her... Teeheehee, they were so funny! She sounded... like a freshman! :D

In other news... I don't think I have other news, actually.

Sep 8, 2009

Hooooly cow, these last few days have been SO strange.

To sum it up? How could I even...?

Lots of tickling happened... LOTS of tickling.

My friend and her (ex) boyfriend broke up. Seeing her sad is really strange... she's such a happy person. I hope she's okay. =/ I love that girl. We might go visit her at her house this evening, if she is up for it. Her mom never texted me back about it... so I guess I shall just text her. No surprise, I suppose.

I just (like literally minutes ago) found an oldish friend on facebook. I didn't know if it was her at first, because when I knew her, she had dark brown hair, and her pictures show her to be blondish... but I'm pretty sure it is. If not... I guess I could just delete her, but I'm 99.9% sure it's her. So yay! Facebook can be quite exciting sometimes.

My (dad's) truck has a CD player! (I discovered this a few days ago!) It doesn't play burned CDs though. *cries* Oh well.

In theory, I'm going to hang out with The Boyfriend tomorrow. Yay! I love seeing him. :)

I'M GOING TO BUY A NINTENDO DS! (Or DS lite). Used, but still. Yay! I'm really excited because I've never bought anything this expensive with my own money before, and also because I really want a DS 'cause all the games look super fun. :) Yay yay yay! So hopefully sometime this week, I'll be able to do that. I'm still waiting on the checks from my mom/grandpa for various thingums. Yay, sort-of income!

I'm still waiting for jobs to call/email me or whatever, even if it's to tell me they've rejected me. No one has been very timely except for Target. Sad. Eventually, I will get a job!

I think that's it?

EDIT: Apparently it's Blogger's 10th birthday! Wow. So they are using this SocialVibe thing to celebrate. Basically, if you (the reader) click on the SocialVibe box (there are two on the right side of this page - one for To Write Love On Her Arms and another for Invisible Children), and do whatever thing it asks (some kind of weird game thing?), it will donate money to whichever cause. So please, play with the gadgets, and add your own to your pages! :D

EDIT #2: When I Google the name "Norah," the three things I always find are Norah Jones, Nick & Norah's Ultimate Playlist, and (here's the strange one), a whole lot of babies/toddlers. I guess Norah is getting to be more popular of a name for little girls. Hum. I'm not really sure I like that... but yeah, just thought I'd point it out.

Is it sad that I really wish there was such thing as a cooking mmorpg?

-_- I'm such a nerdddd.

Sep 2, 2009

Yaaaaay, late start today! I'm about to brush my teefs and then I'm off to Starbucks and then school. :)

In other news, I have a cold, and yesterday The Boyfriend came over and he was like "aww you're sick I should tuck you in and make you go to sleep" blah blah blah. Maybe next time, honeybuns. x]

I just bought a tractor on Farmville! (You know what I'm talking about.) So basically I didn't have enough money to plant a whole lot so now I'm screwed until next harvest. Yaaaaay. Haha. :D

Nothing really all that interesting to talk about, apparently. Did you hear that The Duggers (is that how it's spelled?) are having yet another child? Wow. I have to say, as weird as I think it is, I kind of admire the fact that the mom has had something like 18 children and is willing to keep on going. And on top of that, they seem like they're all really nice and have good manners and everything. You have my vote, Dugger family.
