So, here's my World Page designed especially for me. For those of you who aren't familiar with me, I'm an aspiring Manga-ka (at least in my own mind) and I enjoy many things in life, including, but not limited to: sword-fights, squirrels, lingual jokes, shiny rocks, and strawberries.
Also, I was born in Texas, but raised in Montana. No, I don't ride horses, or boil water over a campfire to heat it, and as a matter of fact, I hate Westerns! I don't have an accent (y'all) and I don't wear a ten-gallon cowboy hat with chaps. I'm a normal, everyday average citizen of America... who wishes he were somewhere else. XD I'm also agnostic, so don't come preaching to me about anything, okies? And, I won't throw you down a well, okies? Yay! Friends!!!
"You have to be realistic about terrorism. Certain groups of people, certain groups, Muslim fundamentalists, Christian fundamentalists, Jewish fundamentalists, and just plain guys from Montana, are going to continue to make life in this country very interesting for a long, long time."
Or, check out our DeviantArt page [Shiro-Jinja] that Angelo (Fai no Tenshi) and I share!
Well, hope you enjoy your visit and sayonara for now! ^_^
Hey, guys~ Long time, no see, ne? I haven't made a post since back in February right before my favorite uncle died... depressing...
Well, the funeral was nice. I was one of two immediate family members to stand up and say something in front of the whole congregation. 'Course, I broke down crying half-way through, but everyone kept saying they were proud of me.
Saw my dad cry for the first time in my life. Like, ever. Humbling, that was.
Anyway, school got done last week. Did three Finals: Japanese Language, Japanese Linguistics, and General Linguistics. I also had an intaglio art class that I aced.
Still job-searching. But, not giving up.
I haven't slept in three days. My boyfriend left for Ireland back on Friday night/Saturday morning. He hates cellphones so much, he didn't take the family one his mom begged him to take. He took an iPad, though, but as luck would have it, there was NO wi-fi where he is. So, no one heard a thing from or about him until about noon today. He was able to call his mother and let her know he had made it and was safe and was feeling miserable from the flight. He didn't call me, though, so I assume he borrowed a phone. His mom yelled at him to go into town ASAP and get a new trac-phone, if he could, and call me right away.
Lol, she was ready start calling our university and embassies and make an international stink. ^^;
I can sleep now, knowing he made it to Ireland. It's not easy to go more than 48 hours without sleep, especially when I was up at the grandparent's house all weekend, trying to hang with family. I'm home now. Ready to collapse. But, I'll wait until at least 8:30 or 9 before I actually go to bed. I hate trying to sleep when it's still daylight out. ;:/
I'm sorry for being so absent from here, guys. I don't come on much except to check on my friend's messages and some journal entries. I'm far more active on my DeviantArt, if you wanna know.
That's about it. Nothing to fun or exciting to discuss. Sorry for being a bore. ^^;
Just lettin' you all know I'm not dead, yet.
I'm losing my favorite uncle to a rare disease tomorrow. He's been pronounced brain-dead, and he admitted earlier in writing that he would not want to be kept alive artificially. So, they're gonna pull the plug sometime today.
I regret not answering his last text back in December before the relapse.
I know it's just the way of the world. People die. But, this is family.
Didn't get the job at TJ's that I applied for. Actually, that's a partial lie.
I DID qualify for the position. The manager honestly said she DID want to hire me, but because of my college schedule, I would've had to work the evening shift. And... guess which shift she didn't have available? =3=
But, she said she'd keep my application on file and that I should check in from time to time to see if she's fired or let go of any newbies she recently hired. I could take their positions, if it's permitting.
Even so, I am still a tad depressed. I'm sick of having no money and having to eat out of a sack lunch at school, asking mom for gas money, not being able to buy little things for myself to cheer myself up... I kinda miss manga.
What REALLY irked me, though, was this morning.
My sister comes in, "UGH, I spent $300 on that prom dress I bought (And, she bought TWO, a real one AND a back up one, WTF?!), and now I have no money... well, $600 in my account. Yay, I'm glad I'm getting paid this week! God, I wish I didn't have to work today..."
I turned to her and glared, "YOU aren't in COLLEGE. YOU aren't paying for your books. YOU don't have to do chores around the house to feel better about mom filling up your gas tank. YOU don't have a boyfriend that you can't buy a birthday gift for. YOU don't have diabetes you can't get supplies to take care of. And, YOU don't have less than $100 to your name. So, shut the fuck up and stop fucking complaining about not having any fucking MONEY! SO, be DAMN glad you have a damn job!"
God, I hate people who under-appreciate the things they have. OTL
On the plus side, my b/f said they're looking for people at the school library. I'll check into it tomorrow. It'd be nice, because I could work between my classes and be done by 5pm everyday. It's not a lot of money, but it's better than nothing.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE~!
I was one of the randomly picked runners up for that contest here with Princess Jellyfish.
That certainly made me feel a whole lot better... ^^
I'll try to remember to provide you all with a picture of the prize once it arrives.
Saturday, 9:00am Mom: Yosei! Get up! We have a house showing at 2:30 today! WE'RE GONNA CLEAAAAANNNN!!!! Me:FUCK.
(I'm damn tired of having to get up and clean every Saturday for the past four weeks. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE BUY OUR HOUSE? 'Kay, thank you!)
10:00am Me: (after doing some cleaning, my tummy starts to protest and demand nourishment before going further in our cleaning activities) Fine, I'll eat that last apple in the fridge. That sounds good, I've been wanting to eat that since yesterday...
(sees the sister walk by with the last apple) DAMMIT!
10:01am Me: Fine! If I can't have my apple, I'll just drink some coffee! Caffeine might help anyway and I'm getting fat. (Looks in the cupboard to find a serious LACK of cups) WTF?! (looks at the table where the sister has THREE separate cups ALL over half-full of coffee)
