Oh what a day. Today started out rather pleasant. I was very happy. I had 4 amazing dreams, but then I looked at the clock and realized I missed class (well class was still in session but by the time I would have gotten there it would have been over). Which is very bad because we were going to get our midterms back today, the professor was going to tell us the syllabus changes and the girl who was going to give me notes from last time I missed class was going to give them to me today. I decided to got to class and catch people as they were leaving in hopes of at least getting the notes and an update, but then I fell asleep. When I woke up again, I had missed the office hours I was supposed to go to. I sent that professor an e-mail and I will try to catch her after class tomorrow. But I was woken up by venice knocking on my door. She needed advice because in order to not get kicked out of the university she needs to drop all her classes, but to stay in housing she must be a full time student, so she wanted to know who to talk to and how long she would have before they would make her move out after she dropped. She came to me because I am the Housing Ninja (a title Hairball gave me). So I helped her with that. I was happy to be helpful but a little sad she was having problems. Then I went to buy a slushie but got a giant cherry soda instead. Then I pretended to work on my papers a bit. Then I had to call mom and at the end of the conversation I had the guts to ask how Ruby was doing. Ruby died...MONDAY NIGHT! On top of being incredibly upset about my cat, I was pissed at my mom for not telling me. She had no intention of telling me and had several opportunities to do so because I have called home several times since then and she could have always called me. I told Martini and Hairball they are both upset and upset with my mother as well. So Martini made me a special entry on her lj and was doing the best she could to try to cheer me up online. She is a very good friend. And then I went to go find Hoobie in the dinning center. While I was there I checked my mail and I had two package slips. They made me feel a little better for three reasons: 1) the package slips said "coolest person ever" and "best DA ever" on them and they don't know what is going on,(I'm going to have to find to who did mail today and thank them), 2) it meant I had packages, and 3) Maiko was working and she always makes me feel better. The packages were presents from Mandy and the stuff I ordered from Amazon (that wasn't supposed to be here till the 4th). Mandy got me a very awesome craft book, that I will be trying out as soon as I can, a frog stained glass coloring book, and a very cute card. I love it all very much. From amazon I got Uneasy Listening Vol. 2 and the enhanced Summer Wine single. I also got something else that I might talk about in a friends locked entry at a later date. So I was very happy about that. Tini got me a present to make me feel better. Hairball and I went out for dinner and I was just kind of a Zombie mess. We talked about our picnic that we are having on Sunday and we might go to the mall on Friday. I haven't told Jenny yet because she hasn't been around to tell. So just when I was thinking I had no real friends, it turns out I have several truly amazing friends. Today has been very bizarre. I am both completely devastated and overjoyed at the same time, and I don't like it.

p.s. Yesterday wasn't all bad. I forgot that I got to talk with the fabulous Annie.

Remember when I said Tuesdays suck? Well...TUESDAYS SUCK! To continue with yesterday, I registered for classes yesterday. I only need to take three classes next fall and I found three that would make up the perfect schedule, one I don't really care for the professor but I love the subject matter, the other two are classes I like with professors I love. Unfortunately, the two with the professors I love are at the same time, so I can't take them both and it just screws up my schedule all the way around because nothing else really fits and meets the requirements I need. All I can do now and hope that I don't screw up my GPA this term and at least pass everything in the fall, because I have no wiggle room for screwing up. And considering how my papers are going and how my Islamic Art and Architecture midterm went, things are not looking good. Also I got my Limited Edition Love Metal Archives Vol. 1 dvd yesterday. You would think this would be a good thing but no. I was excited because my computer is supposed to work as a multi-region player (I'm in the US and the dvd is from the UK so the dvd isn't really compatible with my player). Anyway, This turned out to be a lie. The bonus disk worked fine. On a whim I tried the bonus disk in my regular dvd player and it worked there too, which is rather odd. So I tried the other disk and it didn't work, no surprise there. But it wouldn't work in my computer either. One of the players on my computer let me change its region but its temporary and I can only do it four times. So I watched it because I didn't know how long it was going to be able to. It is very good and very beautifully put together. I'll come up with a long term solution later. Then I got the kitty news. Then I went to work. I didn't get to nap before work and I had to work with BM last night. She all but admitted to being drunk and was her usual unhelpful self. Not that there is a lot to do on the 11pm -8am shifts but she doesn't do anything and then expects people to pity her cause she "works so hard and is up all night." She slept for 4 hours of her shift last night and last time I worked with her she slept for 6 1/2 hours of her shift. And of course I have an 8:30 class after work. I honestly have no idea what we talked about today. I took notes but I can't read them. Then I had to do to office hours to get a picture okayed for a paper I'm writing. She loved it and wants me to do it (its the cover of the Oct 2005 Metal Hammer with Ville Valo on it) but she wants me to bring in the whole magazine. I can't! And whats more on the instructions it says reproductions of the picture and she hasn't asked anyone else to include the whole magazine. I have scans of the cover and of the Him article (she wants me to include information from the article as well) but the magazine belongs to my friend and she is 2 time zones away. So tomorrow I get to go talk to her again and hope I can make my case. Otherwise I'm writing about a fashion ad like everyone else. Then I sent a text I shouldn't of as I was running to class. Again no idea what happened in that class either but I took much better notes. Then I had to run to the library. I have only been able to find 2 books for one of my research papers and I had to order one of them from another university and it isn't here yet. The paper is due next Thursday. I spent the rest of the day trying to get kitty news and calm Martini down( because I freaked her out with my text). Not even Euro Rock Radio cheered me up. I have also missed all meals except breakfast. My low blood sugar is very upset with me. Lets hope I don't waste tomorrow.

So many things have happened in the last couple days I haven't really had time to update.
Sunday: Dad called with an update on the graduation party plans. Mostly it was a guest list update. I told him My grandmother was coming but he has yet to realize that he hasn't told my mother about the party yet. Good thing I did so the fireworks are already over with, I hope. I know 2 of my sisters are not coming but the other one we aren't sure about. She got and award and will be flying to Chicago the weekend before and they are going to some sort of amusement park the weekend before that.
Monday: The Hoobie was released! And then I had an unrelated breakdown of some sort. I was really in rare form this time. I got a little better and talked to Martini for a little bit. Then I had to go to work. I attempted to work on my paper but ultimately I ended up making play-dough flowers for 2 hours. I was happy that I could help RC with his homework. He was a real sweetheart and let me be weird for awhile. I was kinda surprised when he walked in with a hair cut and blue hair. Did I mention That I also missed class? There is way more to this but I'm not going to go into it. I also ordered a bunch of stuff off Amazon.
Tuesday: I made it to class! Ok it felt like a complete waste of time but I got my midterm for my Origins of Abstract Art class. I got a B. Hooray. I also got my second History of Photography paper assignment. I have picked out several images to possibly do my paper on but I run them by the professor and she canceled her office hours this week. Oh and we have a Test in that class tomorrow morning and she didn't post the study guide until last night. I also got my housing contract for next year. My spirits were lifted a bit after finally talking to Hairball and listening to Him night.
Today: I am finally on the official graduation list now. I also finally got to talk with my Islamic Art and Architecture class professor about my paper for her class. She cried in class today. At work we had an end of the year meeting with all 3 area desks together. We sat through a presentation. Then all the superiors said their thank yous and such to everybody. I was one of the people singled out by name, which made me a minor center of attention later when we were having pizza and cake. I got to catch up with some people and I even got a hug and some congratulations. And DW was embarrassed around me for the 4th time in 3 days. Bless him. It was nice to catch up with CW, NC, DK, IL, MN, CO, and all the other lovely people than came and spoke to me tonight. I also think I have convinced my boss to dye a streak of her hair turquoise. Then I walked home and watched Jackass 2 again. And now since I have found my missing text books I'm off to go study.
I know this all sounds very boring. I guess you had to be there.

Here we go another long-ass update. I figure since I haven't given a real update in over a month, so I thought I would honor you with one of my trade mark very long bullet style updates. It's really long but it's worth it. So get a snack, pull up a chair and Enjoy!

If you don't click it how will you know? )

Wow that was long.

If today was any indication Tuesdays are gonna suck. I'm gonna be running to class from work in the morning. I only have 2 classes but one is at breakfast time and the other is at dinner time. They are both in rooms that have major technical difficulties. At least with the history of photography class I was kinda excited. But after both it and the origins of abstract art I was thinking "dear god what I have I gotten myself into." At least I have a friend in each class. I'm really not looking forward to the Origins class. First after years of having the terms abstract and nonobjective art pounding into my head as not being the same thing, the professor for this class has decided they are. Also, it simply isn't my area and there are only two other people in the class that have that "problem". At least the work load doesn't seem too overwhelming.
We also had a hall meeting today. We were discussing programs to use our hall funds on because we have a lot of them and we need to use them. Many things were discussed such as lazer tag, game and movie nights, henna, tie dyeing, sushi night, and a trip to Castle. The only things we decided on for sure were the Trip to the Marineers game in Seattle and catered dinners every other Sunday. It also sound like we are going to have a sweet life party. I'm going to try to go to some programs this term because if I keep on top of things I will have the time and frankly I am almost done with school and I haven't really had any fun this whole time. Ok I have a had a little, I went out with Martini last year and there was that one party freshman year and I always go to Rocky, and the Zombie walk this year. But in four years that really isn't a lot.
Tonight also was the finale of Bam's Unholy Union. It was awesome.

On Saturday I was running around getting ready to leave. I said good bye to everyone. When I was at my aunt's I found out that she will be a tribal elder on her birthday. On top of my errands I also went to the pirate shop, where i would spend far too much of my money if given the opportunity. I also went to a couple galleries. I am very fond of the work of Mary Amarcillo (I am very sorry if i spelt her name wrong), especially her pastel cats, Nancy Tuttle, Horst Wolf, and Liz James. I have to say though that my new favorite artist is Destiny Schwartz. Her work is on display at Eye for Art Gallery. She works in multiple mediums. The first piece I saw was a table Entitled "Hey Diddle Diddle." I really loved it. Then I saw a group of miniature sculptures that I just fell in love with. They also just happened to be by her, as well as some fascinating prints. Mom said some of her work reminded her of mine. If only I was that good. I also finally got my sister's package sent off AGAIN. This thing has been to Texas, Brookings, Eugene, and back to Brookings again. This time it is going to Arizona and lets hope it stays there. I also tried Ben and Jerry's Black and Tan ice cream. OMG! It is delicious.
Sunday was spent sleeping in the car as mom drove, as always. She was freaking out because we lost and hour somewhere. So then we went to lunch and grocery shopping and then she left. I took another nap. I called her and asked what time it was because if the clock in the car was right my clock was wrong. Apparently when mom was cleaning the car she accidently pushed the a clock setting button and changed the hour. So she freaked out and didn't do the shopping she wanted for nothing and who knows if she will ever be able to make it up here again before I move.
Today was my first day of classes. I had 1. It was at 8:30 in the morning yay. It was Islamic art and architecture. I then went out an bought the books for the class because we have a huge assignment due on wed. Then I took another nap. Cause Its my first day back at work! yay! And they still haven't figured out how to do mail right yet. Come on people! On the plus side there was an thank you note from Annie in my in box and people seem to enjoy their little surprise presents from me. No one know its was me! Except of course the people that ask me and can read my signature.

On an unrelated side note Elton John is now 60.

Well back to the insanity.

I'm so ready for this term to be over. If I am not at work or in class, I'm sleeping or at least attempting to. I still haven't gotten those photos posted that I promised. I have to get a paper done early because someone else needs the books now. We live in the same dorm so she decided to work on the same topic so she could get the books from me. I have another paper due in a little over a week. I need to meet with my professor because I managed to sleep through both sets of his office hours, even after I set the alarm. I have been working on my papers. I'm behind on my reading again, but that is normal. My boss is switching desks next week, so I'll have a new boss come monday. Hairball is possibly moving. VeniceBiatch is MIA. She still has my stuff and we need to talk about next year because I'd personally rather not be homeless. Also I have another meeting at work about my grades. I don't know why. I took care of this at the beginning of the term and my grades have improved. I don't know what's going on but I'm glad class has been canceled for tomorrow. To top it all off, its been freezing rain and wimpy snow all day except for that weird little moment of sunshine. On the plus side I did get to register for classes next term and I bought hair dye today. So hopefully next week I'll have new hair. Next term I'm taking Islamic art and architecture, Origins of Abstract art, and history of photography. Not really what I wanted to take but it is what was available. Also as an update I adopted some fetuses and I made some Icons. The icons are on [livejournal.com profile] gummiwolf's profile.
