I’m going to go crazy here

leave a comment »

UR is just not my type of school. Most of the people are so not my cup of tea. Yeah, I know it’s only been like 2-3 months but I’m following my human cliquey instincts. I’m so glad I found Maitland and Holly or else I wouldn’t have been able to last. But there is a certain somebody that has really been grating on my nerves for the past few days. I just can’t talk to this person now without snapping at them and I really hate to do that because they don’t deserve it. I just need a nice vacation away from them. Thanksgiving hurry please!

Steve Kardynal: My New Boyfriend

leave a comment »

Through a friend on tumblr I have discovered this magnificent man Steve Kardynal; thanks Melissa. I just want to put out there that he has these amazing videos on youtube that I’m only beginning to go through. I’ve followed him on twitter, subscribed to him on youtube and now I’m about to friend him on facebook because I forgot and that just popped into my head. He is absolutely adorable and his humor is amazing, and although his videos are kind of racy he is still my new crush. Here are a few that first had me hooked.

At Kings Dominion

leave a comment »

I brought Fionna along with me to go to Kings Dominion today, well yesterday. My younger sisters and mom were going so I went too, might as well use up this season pass while it’s still good. We tried to get on as many rides as possible and this was my first time riding the rides at night, not to mention that it is nearing Halloween so kd was all prepared to scare the shit out of us. Where did we start? Uhhh…well I think we went straight to the Intimidator when we first entered. I absolutely love that ride. Kings Dominion was actually my first time actually getting on real roller coasters. I had gone to the New Jersey State Fair one year with my Aunt Tanya and we had gotten on the ring of fire and I had also gone on space mountain at Magic Kingdom but those two just about sum it all up. When I first went to kd with my physics class back in June (when I was still a mere high schooler aww) we had gotten there super early of course and I had really thought that every experience was like ours, we basically just glided onto a ride without any lines really. It was fabulous. But then I came back with my sister, godsister and godmother. We got on the Intimidator first, of course, because I was simply in love from my last visit. We got to ride that 4 times without the line being crazy so I was still in my naïve state thinking the rest of the park would be that way. It wasn’t. And today I feel was the worst. We stood in line for the Volcano for an hour and 20 minutes. For a less than 20 second ride. Absolutely ridiculous. Nothing got better after that and I guess we just faced the facts because we stopped complaining.

I’m back in my dorm room now and I have a dentist appointment at 9 and it’s already 4 a.m so I’m have to get ready for snoozes. I’m going home for the next 3 days afterwards because it’s Fall Break (Columbus weekend) and we have off from class until Wednesday. I really don’t want to leave Fionna in here either because everyone in our pod went home so she’d be completely alone. I’ll wait until tomorrow when some friends of ours who live downstairs return. They live in Richmond so they can get back here quick, then Fionna can just stay with them for the rest of the break. I’ll miss her extremely. xD

Hello Again

leave a comment »

I don’t really know where to begin. For the time being I would just like to say hello again to my online journal. I have missed you. I feel like I am somewhat a new person from when I last posted. For starters, I am a college student now. I go to the University of Richmond, and live on the Westhampton College campus. It has been a great experience for me so far. I don’t feel quite as grown-up as I had initially thought I would once I got out of my house and into my dorm. I’m not exactly making my own rules, well besides deciding what ridiculous hour I will be getting to bed every night. Sleep is definitely one of my closest friends since I have begun school. If I have free time all I really want to do is crawl onto my elevated bed (that is a pain to get in) and roll up in my monkey snuggie and sleep the daylight away, that is if I don’t have anymore classes for the day. I like my roommate and the room we share. Her name is Fionna, she is Chinese and speaks Cantonese. She was born and raised in Massachusetts though, and has taught me a few things to say but she doesn’t read or write in her language. We’ve talked a lot about old Japanese movies we watched when we were younger, she watched them in Cantonese and I either enjoyed dubbed or subbed versions. I think we’ve come to agree that Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl’s Moving Castle are the best. She got me to watch some Totoro which I had always had glimpses of but never actually watched and in turn after I showed her Ponyo we argued about whether it was a bad movie since Miley Cyrus’ younger sister dubbed the voice a few years ago. I still think it is amazing and I watched the subbed version last night when I didn’t sleep until 6 a.m working on a bio paper. It really is such a cute movie. Speaking of my room, I have some pics of what my room initially looked like when I first set it up.

It’s changed a bit since then but I’d rather take more photos while the sun is up and the room is naturally lit. I will work on that tomorrow. And to just randomly throw my schedule out there, I am in 4 classes one of which has a lab for my biology class. The other 3 are Japanese, a first-year seminar in which I am taking a course on animals in literature, and a human figure art class where we sketch nude figures. I have so interesting choices here at Richmond so I’m pretty excited to continue choosing more courses. So, I’ve added in my first semester schedule. It is the worst I’ve seen by far among everyone I’ve met. My Wednesdays are completely packed and I always feel dead on my feet by the end of the day. Just another 2 months and that big mistake will be completely changed. Firstly, no 8 a.m classes! No Friday classes! And definitely no classes past 2! I have learned my lesson. But boy do I love college!
