I am a giant idiot. [03 Mar 2004|07:17am]
[ mood | Procrastinatory ]

Hey-o! Come one, come all! SEE!!! the retarded college student as he tarries and procrastinates and shirks his academic obligations until the wee-est of wee hours in the early early morn. So wee are these hours, that some might dare to think of them as mid-morning!! I have a 5.5 - 8 page paper to write that's due no later than 4:30 today. That gives me about 9.5 hours to complete it. Wait, I have Japanese at 2. I skipped the last 2 days, so I really shouldn't skip any more. 8 hours. You'd think that'd be enough, but I started this endeavor at about 10.5 last night and thus far, I only have 1 page done. Boo to homework.

Oh, by the by... the girl I met about a month ago is wonderful. We're still together. Her name is Emily. If you care, leave your email or IM in the comments and I can show you pix.

Geology never looked so good.... (Goddamn right, it's a beautiful day!) [31 Jan 2004|03:59am]
[ mood | jubilant ]

So. I just got back from a Toad in the Hole show at Max's. It was good. I'd never seen TitH before but had heard rumors that they were good. I'm here to confirm that the rumors are true. We showed up early and got what appeared to be a good spot near the "stage" (really just a corner in the bar). I found the last empty chair in the place and sat on it backwards, with my forearms resting on the back of the chair. About 30 to 45 minutes later the band started playing. A grip of people had showed up by this time, and those of you who are familiar with Max's know that it is what is referred to as "not big." I had a good view of the band for the first 2 or 3 songs, but then people just stood in my line of sight. The cute flautist was familiar looking to me and we kept making eye contact (she later told me that she recognized me from somewhere too, but neither of us could figure out where) until people blocked my view.

It turns out that our spot wasn't as good as we had thought, at least for me. Sitting on a chair looking at people's backs and getting gratuitous quantities of beer spilled on me as others continuously tried to get by me is not my idea of a wonderful time. I was right in the path of the way to the bathroom and the secondary bar, so there was a pretty constant flow of traffic right in front of me. After awhile my hips started to get sore from straddling the chair so I finally stood up and got rid of the chair. Before I had stood up, this cutie girl had apologized to me for trying to get by and getting in my way and tripping over me, etc. We started chatting as best we could, between songs and whatnot, and it came out that I was sitting because of my injury (I broke my neck in a snowboarding accident about 2 years ago, for those who don't already know). I mentioned that I wished I had a Guinness but I didn't want to try to brave the crowd to get one.

She went and got one for me! Didn't even let me pay her back! How cool is that?!?!

So we chatted some more, and it turns out she's a grad student studying Geology. She seemed pretty cool, and cute to boot. Plus, she bought me a Guinness! Anyways, after I stood up and ditched the chair, she got pushed into me by some fool trying to go to the bar/bathroom who had several people behind him/her (English needs an asexual pronoun, dammit) so she was pressed up against me for what seemed like quite awhile. One moment we were cheek to cheek with our bodies pressed together and mayhap it was the Guinness, but the next moment we were locking lips. We spent the rest of the show grinding together and making out.

Best. TitH Show. Ever.

I gave her a ride home and she gave me her number. We made plans to go see Big Fish on Saturday. It should be a good time. We'll see how drunk she was. She didn't seem drunk when I first started talking to her, but as the night wore on, she seemed to get drunker. It will be interesting to talk to her tomorrow and see what says.

In other news, General University Scholarship applications are due by the 1st and I haven't started it yet. Also, I have a grip of shit to do this weekend for various midterms, etc., and have no business spending time doing anything apart from studying. So why am I going to a movie with a random girl from the TitH show? Because she's cute dammit! And I've been single too long. Who knows? Maybe something will develop between us. Wish me luck. I'm out......

TMBG and PDX [22 Jan 2004|11:10pm]
[ mood | blah ]

So here I am in Portland, sitting on my friend's couch, updating via wireless laptop whilst watching the TMBG rock-u-mentary, Gigantic. I love this film. Of course, I also love They Might Be Giants. It's hard to type on this thing. Therefore, from this sentence on, I'm going to stop concerning myself with grammar/spelling/etc. i'm sure that it will look absolutely infantile. oh well. screw it. i don't care.

school looks to be intensive this term, even though i only have 13 credits. they are distributed across japanese 302, psychology 380 (psych of gender) which is an interesting class but the textbook is, honest to god, the most BORING book in the world! i don't have it with me, but i'll post a luverly little sampling of its singularly inimitable horribleness for you all to revile. my final class is the history of jazz, 40s to present. it's supposed to be my fun class, but i rarely go. my reasoning behind this is such: the class is the most BORING class in the world! ok, actually, that's not fair. the class has interesting content, but the instructor's voice has this pleasant droning quality that is wonderful for facilitating sleep. if any insomniacs are reading this, may i suggest taking MUJ350 or 351? i guarantee that you'll get a solid hour of sleep, if not 1.5 hours. so even though i only have 13 credits, i still feel like it's a lot of work. the japanese is a veritable deluge of information which needs to be crammed into my skull, but more often than not it only hangs out long enough to be regurgitated onto a quiz, and then it pulls chocks and takes off into the wild blue yonder. the psych.... oh god, don't get me started on the psych. the class itself is ok, but as i mentioned above, the reading is mind numbing. and i have a gratuitous quantity of it every week, in addition to weekly essays and some kind of Community Outreach Project in lieu of a final. i realize that other people have so much more, but this is my first psych class and it's really very unfamiliar territory for me. oh well. screw it. i'll just have to deal.

In other news, there's a girl that i like! and she doesn't not like me, which is very excellent for me. i gave her several calls in recent weeks and she didn't return them until last night. but we're getting together this weekend, so yay! unfortunately, i have duty this weekend. dammit. oh well, maybe things will go well with this girl. gah, i hope so. i wants to get laid in such a bad way. she's so much more than sex object though. she's so incredible and we connect on so many different wavelengths that if things go well, i forsee a long, mutually fulfilling relationship between us. but i bet the sex would be phenom! i think i'll end this post now and leave all my Loyal Readers with my sexual frustration.

au revoir.


Here is that quote from my psych text... "Most of the inconsistencies in effect sizes revealed by quantitative syntheses are explicable in terms of methodological dissimilarities between studies." WTFOMGLOLBBQ`!!?!?!!!12111!?@!

Merry Christmas to you all! I got nearly everything on my list, plus a few things that weren't on the list but are fabulous just the same. Here's hoping that your holiday was full of joy and cheer and that it carries on well into next year!

BOOOOORING!!!! [20 Dec 2003|11:05pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Yay. I'm home for a week. Home = the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. I love it here. There's so much nothing to do! Nah, I'm just talking shit. A bunch of friends are in town on break too so there are some people to hang out with. I won't go completely out of my skull with boredom. In fact, I went caroling tonight with some folks. It was a lot of fun. Then we went back to my ex-boss' house for a potluck party. It was a lot of fun. I saw my good friend's younger sister and she gets more attractive every time I see her even though it's hard to not see her as the screechy little sister she used to be. She's actually quite cool and rescued me from the hospital to take me to the movies. Sometimes I feel like there's a bit of an attraction between us but I can't really tell. Like tonight, she kept touching me while we were talking, but she'd had a few drinks too, so I can't be sure. In any case, having any kind of relationship with her would make me feel rather awkward. Anyways, there's this other girl I'm interested in so I'm not going to pursue anything with my friend's sister. Plus.... it's my friend's sister! There's some kinda rule prohibiting that, I'm pretty sure.

I brought a book, some dvds (FLCL among them!!), and some video games to keep me distracted this week. Oh, but the computer gave me a BSOD a little while ago when I was playing one of the games. I hope that isn't the beginning of a trend. I will be seriously pissed off.

[ mood | enthralled ]

Color me ecstatic! I'm so happy! I'm all done with classes for this term. I had my last final exam tonight. Actually, I only had 2 finals this term, and I had them both today. The first one, in the Physics of Sound, was at 8 o'clock in the bloody morning. Christ that sucked. Even more so because I was in Corvallis last night getting faded with friends. After getting faded, I sobered up enough to drive home and I managed to get about 6 hours of sleep before I had to wake up and take the final for which I didn't study at all. Luckily, Naima was awake this morn too. We went to breakfast together and saw Kimi and Marc there, so we sat and ate with them. Huzzah. They had yet to go to bed, fuggin' crackheads. Then I slept until about 1337, then I got up and studied, er crammed, nihongo until my final, which was at 1800. I think I passed. I may have even passed the class. Anyways, I'm WAY stoked to be done. I think I'm going to drink beer to celebrate. Yay.

i'm haruko, who are you?
Which Furi Kuri (FLCL) Character Are You?

brought to you by Quizilla

Hooray for Haruko! FLCL rocks.

I just got back from seeing the third matrix film. My official review is: Meh. It was ok. i enjoyed it, but it wasn't great. Nor did it suck. it was enjoyable. I always thought that the characters spoke too over-the-top dramatically, even in the first two. in this latest one it really was noticeable, and i thought it detracted from the movie. but what the hell do i know?

in closing, here are some links.

"I don't need no instructions to know how to ROCK!" [29 Nov 2003|02:59pm]
[ mood | content ]

Aqua Teen Hunger Force rules. Carl is the man.

Dead week looms nigh on the horizon. I have some serious studying to do if I'm to get a decent grade in my classes. Oh well. We'll see what happens. Naima: I hope you get better sooner than later. Erin: I haven't forgotten about lunch. I still want to get together.

That's all for today. I leave you with this:

Our life is a voice. We make a road for the spirit to pass over. [26 Nov 2003|11:12am]
[ mood | Recovering ]

Whew. Ok. Welcome, or as someone I know would say, "Greetings and Salutations." This is me on the internet. Huzzah! The past 5 days have been rife with reading, writing, and research. Relaxation was not one of the things I did during that time. In fact, I did a couple all-nighters. Ugh. I'm all done now though. I went to bed yesterday at about 1500 and only just got up a few minutes ago. So I'm nice and recharged. Yay.

What is up with crackhead parents? I have a resident whose mother is calling me because she hasn't heard from her daughter in forever. While that's nice of Mom to worry, I wish she'd call her daughter instead of me. Apparently, she's tried exactly that, with no reply. So she calls me. "Is my daughter ok? Do you see her around? I'm worried." So I tell her yes, her daughter is fine, I see her all the time, etc, and promise to tell her daughter to call her. When I tell my resident about this, she informs me of her parents' crackheadedness. Apparently, Mom called her old RA consistently at 6AM to check up on her and Dad would show up in the Dorm to stalk her. The very next day, she calls me again. "My daughter still hasn't called. Can you maybe check to see if she's in her room?" Hell no, lady. If your daughter isn't calling you, maybe she has a reason. Get a fucking clue. I'm never answering my phone again. Why does the University feel compelled to hand out the RA's phone number? It's not the first time somebody has called, trying to get in touch with one of my residents. Sigh. Did this type of shit ever go down for you Lauren?
