To everyone I was talking to last night: SORRY!

The wireless completely died on me, and to fix it, I have to go through the parentals' room - which really wasn't happening at 12:45 in the morning or whenever it died. Sorry that I just disappeared like that, but everything'll be all right tonight!

Okay, remember this girl? (Yeah, f-locked. Not taking it off.)

I never heard from her. And I got confirmation today that her mom won't let her move off-campus.

Fuuuuuuuuuck.

I ran into Taylor again today, whom you may or may not remember from this little fiasco.

It turns out she has since moved back home from the place she was living (it wasn't an apartment, she was actually just living in someone else's house) and might still be looking to move out. I passed on to her that I was still very interested, along with the fact that I now come equipped with attached kitty (hi Nora!), and she seemed interested.

What we talked most about, though, was religion. I get the feeling Taylor was sounding me out on my thoughts - hell, I know she was, because she kept asking me questions. I have a very strange amalgamation of beliefs, none of which is really a belief, per se, that it took her awhile to understand. If anything, I believe in universal love and trying to be a good person. Taylor, meanwhile, is very Christian. It shocked her that I knew more about her religion than she did, historically at least. But I think most of my points got through to her, or at least ended up making sense. I wasn't trying to change her religion at all - but I do know that while she's thought about her religion and accepted it based on her own beliefs and not merely parroting someone else's, she hasn't really thought about others' faiths. She doesn't think they're evil, but she does view them with a sort of pity. I just wanted her to think about the others for a little, and she did, and it was good.

Even with what she did in November, she's a very nice person.

PS: Jess, sorry 'bout earlier. Parental Unit showed up unexpectedly and I had to do emergency shutdown literally huddled on the floor so she wouldn't see me through the window.

Well, sick yesterday. Got sent home from work. Feasted on Sprite and saltines and drifted in and out of sleep, accompanied by various cats, until about 11:30, when I woke to play a bunch of FFX and abused the hell out of the Bevelle Highbridge just before the second Seymour battle. I need Level 3 and 4 keyspheres, damnit.

Totally wasn't studying the game for that Tidus thesis-type paper I'm gonna write, no >.>

Shall be on tonight.

OMG SHI GUESS WHAT I GOT!

Some days I really, really, really hate my job.

I'm fed up and putting in my ROI for the bakery.

I need to just get hired at a bookstore.

So I apparently won a giftcard.

To a restaurant I've never been to and don't have much of an interest in going to.

Hmmm...

And damn you regann, I'm starting to think of organizational paragraphs >.

FTW LJ, why in the hell are you sticking in random advertising pages that simply redirect you to the page you want to go to? It makes back buttoning a pain in the ass, because it takes you to the advert page, which you don't see, then right back to where you were and not where you wanted to go.

Actual conversation heard while leaving the library earlier.

Librarian: So what do you think you'll need?
Student: Definitely some arms and some legs, a couple of feet, probably the top of a skull.
Tai: O.o;;;

Apparently my library checks out... bones. At least fake ones. It's... slightly disturbing.

And I saw a great great GREAT sticker someone stuck on a door here.

"Smoking: Breath so bad, you can see it!"

Made me laugh XD

Hmm, I was just wondering.

The Heroes shirt Sue gave me is the first instance of her indulging my geekiness - I don't know if she's been disapproving or just neutral about it. But it got me thinking, not in the "grrrr" way which is nice.

I'm a definite geek, there's no denying it. Sometimes I think my parents wonder where it came from, and today I was able to give Sue an answer.

"Blame Dad."

So what's everyone's story? Everyone I know here is a geek of some stripe. What was your initial "geek experience?"

For me, it was when I was seven. Dad persuaded me to sit down and watch Star Wars one day. Then we watched Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi the next. After that, I was gone.

What about all of you?

Today is cold, windy as fuck, headache-inducing, and still a hell of a lot better than yesterday.

Dad gave me a Target giftcard for V-Day (which I'm going to buy Elite Beat Agents with whoo! I shall use responsibly) and Sue actually gave me a Heroes shirt. I'm wearing it now; it's got the eclipse from their opening and the RNA helix and it says "Are you on the list?" In fact it looks remarkably like this only black and short-sleeved. Not official merchandise - and I love it XD

Instead of another round of bitching about the idiot smokers and people who are too lazy to open doors, I'm going to add another set to the "lazy" list - people who won't even walk up ONE FLIGHT OF STAIRS OMG! - and go on. 'Cause now? I'm confused.

When I came to Kennesaw, I enrolled as a Theatre and Performance Studies major because they didn't have Asian Studies. They had it as a minor, but not a major, which did somewhat annoy me. Since I had regained my fondness for theatre and I already had most of the major done at Furman, I went for that.

Fast-forward to last October-November. I love the theatre class and the people I've met through it, but I'm feeling, especially with working as many hours as I need to, it will be very, very hard to complete the theatre major because of the time factor. I need to be involved in shows to a high degree, they don't offer most of the classes I need a lot, and I'm not looking forward to having to cut hours at work to do it even though I'd vastly prefer to work in a theatre than a grocery store. It means I wouldn't be making nearly as much money, thus making it hard to support myself. I begin to wonder about switching majors, even having a couple in mind, but neither of them were quite as appealing as theatre even with all the time confusion.

Fast-forward again to now. I've been in class for just over a month now, and I'm absolutely loving my anthropology class (which might have been noticable, considering it's the only one I've been talking about here). A teacher comes in to give a presentation on a study abroad to Greece, and immediately, IMMEDIATELY, I want to go. I really, really, really want to do this - and I can't this year. I know it's going to be impossible, but there's always next year. We'll just have to see. But it gets me thinking - and a couple of days ago I came to the conclusion that I might have at last found what could be worth leaving theatre. It's no secret that I love cultures; I'm the one who always checks out mounds of books about the ancient Britons and Gauls and Japanese and Chinese history and the Mayans and- well, I'm slightly fanatic. I'd pick a book that falls under the general category of "anthropology" to read before any other non-fiction book. I vastly, vastly enjoy building up and dissecting cultures in fandoms (along with characters, but we'll leave psychology out of this for now). The major here even has a "cultural anthropology" specialty which sounds very interesting.

I've been meeting with my professor, asking him questions, and generally getting a feel for this major. It sounds like everything I could want, it really does. It actually looks like it would take me less time to finish than theatre, or the same amount. In either case I wouldn't be graduating before next Christmas, which I already knew (and apparently the parentals missed when I told them, oi).

I just have to decide whether or not to do this. What do you guys think?

Oh, and I need to cut the cuffs off my pants.

[ mood | aggravated ]

Well, today was absolute PROOF that bad things come in threes. This week has been absolutely shitty. And I'm using the Karolina icon to prove it, which I only use when everything has gone to absolute fuck and back.

One: I can't find my cell phone charger, which means I'll have to buy a new one. Odds are it's in my room, but I can't find it and I probably never will anywhere I look for it, until I buy a new one. Then it will randomly turn up and I'll have two. Story of my life.

Two: The ongoing saga of the computer demon. Three days to reformat and reconfigure my computer, and most things still aren't on it. Admittedly none of the things I've lost are programs I absolutely need to live (that's reserved for AIM and the Internet) and all my personal files, writing, music, pictures, and the like, are safe, but still. It should not have taken that long and been that confusing. Yes, I did indeed have a virus. Still not entirely sure what it did. Guess we'll find out not at all.

And if that wasn't enough, try

THREE: My car broke down.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK.

I had to call Sarah to come jump me, which she did, but it died again when I tried to put the headlights on. It was either the battery or the alternator - and it was really, really looking like it was the alternator, both because of how bad it was and the fact that the battery had given me absolutely NO WARNING about it. I couldn't call my parents, didn't WANT to call them, and had NO MONEY. Yes, NO MONEY, and a need to get it fixed IMMEDIATELY. I had to go to work with no headlights and no windshield wipers (in a fairly heavy rain), spent four hours freaking out about it, then my break at SuperWalMart having the engine checked and the battery replaced. Kevin A (a bagger) and Kevin D (a cashier) were both SUPER WONDERFUL and lent me sixty dollars between them to get it replaced, so I have to pay them back but I don't mind that because they are wonderful wonderful people. My parents don't know this happened and never will.

And to top it all off, my bank account's overdrawn somehow and I'm PMSing. Fun week!
