I'm cool with that too ;)
I have been tagged by Everlasting Light to do this question thingie which as my title says is troublesome, but since I haven't been on this site for so long *is smacked* I thought I might as well do it just to say hello to a few old friends.
1. What is the most inspiring movie you have ever seen?
2. What one toy would you like to throw repeatedly at a brick wall?
Whatever video game I'm currently playing at the time. Or at least that one part I come up against that takes me about two days to finally beat orz
3. What is one thing a woman should never do?
Nothing. (You see what I did there? XD )
4. What is the scariest scene you remember from a kid's movie?

5. What is your favorite kind of cereal?
The free kind.

Losing someone. And then realizing that losing someone through death isn't the only way a person can be lost to you.
8. What is the nicest thing someone else has done for you?
Died for me.
9. If you could bring someone famous back from the grave, who would you choose?
My educated, historical side prompts me to say things like 'classical greek theorists or ancient kings and queens' but probably some sort of well-known warrior so I could force them to tell me all their battle secrets to use in my writing xD
10. Where do you not mind waiting?
When I have to give a speech I'm not ready for and the instructor says the due date is moved to the next class period xD
11. If you could lock up one person in a mental institution, who would it be?

Restarting an engine. I've had a lot of practice. Like, twice in one week cuz I'm a forgetful idiot who left her lights on xD

No idea. I probably wouldn't recognize them even if I did manage to have a conversation with them.

Teachers. I've seen an upclose look at the lives of some of the most dedicated people I know. Teachers are brave and have an enormous responsibility and I wouldn't want to be one for . . . a million dollars xD
20. What is one thing you refuse to share?
My thoughts on something I haven't full thought through yet. It's not that I refuse but I am extremely reluctant in divulging such information.
21. If you went to a psychiatrist, what would he/she say you suffer from?
I agree with my previous friend. There's too many to chose from. If forced I'd say schizophrenia or lack of self confidence.

Hm. . . hate each other?
Yes, as the above title says me and my roommate finally got a cat!! I'm so excited!!! It's my first time having an animal other than gerbils and hamsters. My brother was allergic so we could never have anything bigger -3- But now my dream animal is here!
We just got her this morning. I was lying in bed and remembered I hadn't texted my roommate back about the cat picture she had sent to me that evening (I was working). So I did and said I would love to get the cat. Then she texted back and said he'll be there in less than an hour and I was like ack!! I have to get out of bed and get dressed xD And then I was still in my pajamas when the maintenance guy knocked at the door 10 minutes later -_- So needless to say it was a busy morning.
Apparently a man and his wife found her wandering around their house. They eventually coaxed her inside and she was really tame. She's been declawed so apparently someone just abandoned her :/ They couldn't keep her because she wasn't a big fan of dogs and they already had several so they put an ad on CraigsList for her, which my roommate saw. So we got a rescue cat without having to pay all those expensive Humane Society fees lol
We don't have a name for her yet, but I'll let ya'll know when we pick one. Isn't she just so cute? X3
Okay nevermind. My file sizes are too big -3- I'll have to go back to that previous post where someone showed me how to cut it down to size. Pictures coming later lol
This is that catch-up, catch-all post I've been meaning to do for how many months. No more procrastination. Today shall be the day! lol
Hm, let's see. It's hard to remember what I've shared and what I haven't so forgive me if I repeat myself
or fail to mention something important Well, I suppose the biggest thing is that I am no longer in school. I find it very exciting . . . and at the same time rather sad. I mean, I've been in school basically 21 years of my life. It's familiar, almost comforting in a way. Now that I'm in the world of the 'big bad adults' so much is new and unfamiliar to me like bills, and car service, and rent, and insurance, etc. Ack. I don't mean to say that being the so-called adult is terrible. There's lots of good things too ^^b But it's always scary to take those first steps. So I graduated and then got a job working at a museum in KY. My parents didn't really want me to move (being the baby and last kid to leave) but they supported my decision even when every other sentence is you know you can come home if you need to xD So yeah, I got up here and was living with some family friends until I could find an apartment and ended up getting a roommate. We went to the same university. For the sake of continuing anonymity I shall call her Coon because she skinned and cooked the raccoon who's life ended in an untimely death on top of her electric power box outside xD So yeah, Coon is really chill and we hardly ever see each other because my schedule is 3:30pm-12am and she's got a normal schedule. But that's the best type of roommate right? The one you hardly ever see?? XD But no she really is great and will occasionally make me food fastest way to my heart We're thinking about getting a cat soon. I can't wait because I've never really had pets because one of my brothers was allergic =3=
So yeah. New place. New roomie. New (a) job. The people I work with are pretty cool. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I'm Housekeeping so basically I keep the bathrooms from being trashed lol I recommend you come and visit the place. The toilets here are really clean Anyway, the people are cool. They're all really weird so I fit in quite well ^^b Since I'm on the Swing Shift I only see them for a few hours before they head home then I'm basically the only one in the museum besides the Public Safety guys. It's really nice because I can listen to music all night long and think about the stories I'm writing. It always surprises me when I see someone else in the museum at that time lol And pretty sure the public safety guys who watch the monitors must always be laughing at me. I'm definitely a confirmed klutz so I'm always dropping something or doing something spastic that makes me laugh. Because if you can't laugh at stuff like that about yourself then life would just be depressing lol So yeah, and sometimes I'll lock myself outside and have to walk all the way around the building to a side door and I can swear I hear them laughing at me -3- Oh, and there's a cat that lives out of the garbage compacter outside who we call Peter. I'm quite fond of him even though I doubt he reciprocates the sentiment.
Hm, what else? I don't know anyone have any questions? Probably not many people read this since I rarely post anyway ^^' My bad. Maybe I should post more regularly, but I hardly ever post on fb either. I just read through stuff there and on here and comment on everyone else's posts and pics. It may look like I'm not active but I'm on I swear ^^'
Oh yes, the whole bit about the title. Well, apparently 50 subscribers is my unlucky number because I've hit 50 several times only for it to drop back down to 49 each time XD I'm not whining or complaining about it. I understand people leave and stuff
and like I said I'm not visibly active and certainly not artistically xD In fact, usually I don't even know who leaves ^^" So how can I complain when I don't even know who left? Though there was one memorable time when one friend unsubscribed. I sent her a message asking why and she had no idea she had subscribed at all. Some random bug in the system and before you get too skeptical we'll still quite good friends so she didn't unsubscribe 'accidentally on purpose' lol So maybe next time you're unsubscribed by someone try checking with them first. Maybe it was an accident after all ;)
Yosh. That's it for now. I really need to eat breakfast, do laundry and the 1001 other things I need to do today before work. Nice touching base with everyone again. Jana~
This pic is for pandaman08 because I thought of her when I saw it . . . and she loves pandas XD
I should really write an update about my life. It's been too long but . . . I'm lazy orz
So yeah, caught the meme fever, but honestly how else am I supposed to post random things about my life. It's not like we have dedicated worlds set up for such things . . . anyway, here goes nuthin. I stole this from MangaKid who stole it from lots of different peoples. I edited it slightly but it's my meme now so there.
Birthplace: SC, U.S.A
Current Location: Still the U.S.A.
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: I say brown, but some people still insist it's blonde. I say get over it my hair's now a very light brown.
Righty or Lefty: Lefty! The best thing to be!!! . . . except for sitting at school desks and trying to write on chalk boards -_-
Male or Female: Female
The shoes you wore today: Er, sandals that I don't feel like getting up and looking for a brand on.
Your fears: Regretting the life that I've lived.
Your most overused phrase: "After a moment". It's seriously my most used phrase in my writings. EL I'm sure you've noticed this by now ^^'
Your thoughts first waking up: Where is my phone this time?
The first feature you notice in the opposite sex: haha, it depends on whatever feature is the most noticeable honestly. Some people have great hair, some have awesome tattoos. It's just whatever sticks out the most you know?
Your best physical feature: My sparkling personality.
Your bedtime: Er, I try to go to bed around 1ish, but that doesn't always work out.
Some people keep me up until 4am writing certain stories EL But as my excuse I don't get off work until 12ish.
Your most missed memory: Er, being back at my old home with friends I suppose. Skype is great but I just miss being able to drop everything and head over to their house for fun, food, and fellowship.

Like(ed) high school: It was fun, but I prefer college.
Want to get married: I think it would be nice.
Type with your fingers on the right keys: Only when they don't hit the wrong ones.
Believe in yourself: Pssht, I think this is overrated. Believing in my dirty rotten self won't get me nowhere. Believing in a holy, all-knowing, God that chooses to love me even though I'm a bastard is where I find my self worth. Try it sometime. You might find you like it ;)
Get motion sickness: Not really.
Think you're attractive: Only every other minute. And then I get smacked down to reality lol

Told a guy/girl that you liked them?: Are you kidding? I would never, ever do that unless I knew basically for certain that is was mutual. All this anime angst about the need to confess to your crush always boggles my mind. If they weren't interested in you before do you really think confessing would make them like you now? But I understand you need to have a healthy balance and sometimes bravery is rewarded . . . sometimes ;)
Cried during a Movie?: Yes . . . but my brother was crying too lol

What country would you most like to visit?: Traveling is a pain.
Best eye color:
Best hair color:
Short or long hair:
Best weight: In answer to all of the above it depends. I like many different types.
