One important thing: I'll apologize in advance. I have a real gift for offending people accidentally, on the internet and in real life. Please do not bear me any ill will, I don't try to insult/anger anyone on purpose! It's just a blunder, I hope that we can still get along~
If you're still reading... I'm also quite fond of these random things: Lava lamps, Albert the Drinking Duck, mythology/folklore, gypsies, cats, cards, dice, magic, juggling, the circus, carnivals, terrible movies, old horror movies, Charlie Chaplin, hot chocolate, Lon Chaney Sr., animation, super powers, jello, the night, the cold, the smell of hardware stores
It's also probably clear that I really enjoy anime and manga. My full list of anime is here and my full list of manga is here.
Ooh cool! That is awesome! I'd love to see anything you make there, haha.
I wish you the best of luck! Taking animation in Japan. That sounds dreamy. emotion_kirakira
Thanks, I will! Well, we'll just be going as a family and sightseeing and maybe just lounging about and going somewhere there is snow because we have never had it anywhere we've lived, hehe.
My mum is a huge fan of Korean dramas which is why we're going there. lol
I hope so too! But I believe in you. You can have fun that's not too expensive, I'm sure there are ways. ;w;
If you want me to ramble about my travel experiences, this will have to go to PMs. I was just rambling to another friend on here about the places I've been and it got long. I've broken profile comment limits twice already, so I've learned the hard way. lol
He's a great dog. And I'm lucky he didn't get my eyes. THAT would've been a problem. ^^;;
As it was I needed a
Yeah, and it feels like you're getting nowhere with them no matter how hard you try to tell them how it irritates you. Oh well.
I try my best. How I was raised. I mean, there are parts of my upbringing I don't necessarily still agree with but consideration is paramount.
Very nice! What were you studying again?
Japan and Korea are like two more countries I really need to visit, and I am going to Korea in December.
I hope you enjoy Japan! I hear it's expensive there, though. But so many nice things there. And it's just so nice there, period.
As for where I've been: all over California, mostly, then Germany and a good part of East Asia (China/Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines). I used to go around Asia a lot as a kid.
Yeah. It's a lot of hamsters. So I would definitely know. I've never been bitten, but our housekeeper has, and I've had a ton of close calls. I've also seen the other horrors firsthand. emotion_facepalm
I love Chip. He's adorable. And my face is okay, except for a small M-shaped scar above the bridge of my nose. You'll only see it if you look really closely.
Yeah. It's usually little things, more than big things, that piss me off about someone.
Though, I guess I'm kind of like Maribelle that I hold consideration for others in high regard as a virtue.
Yusssss~ Let's keep relaxing.
And good luck! I hope it's a good time, I miss travel.
Any specific places? o3o
I've had four batches of hamsters. They are vile creatures. They will die/kill each other if given the chance. emotion_facepalm
My dad said that a breeder told him that hamsters are terrible pets. You can't even pet them, they are aggressive and bite. emotion_facepalm
I have a Labrador all the way back home. He's the best. Even if he once bit me in the face. lol
Heh, thanks. It's probably not as bad as I make it out to be, I just tend to be a Type A person sometimes and have little tolerance for a few pet peeves of mine.
Which is why some people really annoy me. ^^;;
Your support means a lot to me, though, I'm thankful for it. And I'll be here cheering for you too.
How about you? What have you been up to?
It's more like I've had hamsters and rabbits as pets. Most of them died horrible, violent deaths. Hamsters are the worst pets ever.
They fight each other, eat their own babies, die in the heat, get killed by cats, yadda yadda.
Maybe I'll have better luck next time, but I'd rather have a dog or a cat. I dunno.
I'm doing okay. Just in between jobs and trying to finish my master's degree.
A little frustrated and highly strung nowadays because of some people (not people who post here), and being sick isn't helping, but I'll be better soon.
[And I'm trying my best not to take it out on you, haha.]
Yeah, those beans really do not fool around. Only two of the seed I tried were really super ancient. Some of them were kind of old, but not decades old. Haha. I just decided to start growing a seed one day when I decided to eat a grapefruit. I wanted to see if I could get some seeds to grow and then after that I got carried away. Haha. Now we have more seed than we can put in pots. And we were planning on doing a container garden. And that reminds me, I should do another garden update since the beans are looking so great. Yeah, I'm not eating ramen anymore. Maybe I will once in a while, but I've mostly been doing sandwiches and bacon and eggs and such. I've been off ice cream for a while too, because I've been taking some antibiotics that read in big bold letters DON'T EAT OR DRINK CRAP WITH MILK IN IT. So I was like "okay, fine." I can actually take some milk and stuff, but I just decided it's best to avoid it until I'm done with it. Then I'll eat lots and lots of yogurt. Then maybe the ice cream again.
Anyway, my online class is multimedia. We just started last week.
Get some rest. I've been pretty worn out too. Work is chaos. I can't wait until I have to do that and my math class. orz
And neat! I've always wanted to study abroad but I'm just not a good enough student for it. ninja
Where you going to?
Don't worry about it. I know you've been busy with school and such.
The beans are thriving and they outgrew the trellis already. Eight of the ten okra plants are still alive, the other two shriveled up, probably from transplant shock. The peppers I grew are still growing up. The other peppers I got at the fair still look healthy and one of them is getting buds. The watermelon took a bit of a hit, but it's still hanging on. The cilantro is doing well and some of the chives sprouted. The grapefruit are slowly continuing to grow. And the cucumbers and peas rotted before they came out. They were too old.
Yay! No more semester! At least until next time?
I've been good. I'm getting the hang of work and I'm not feeling as sick anymore. My online class has a slow start. How're you now that classes ended?
Ps. Ugh. There were so many BEAUTIFUL images to choose from I just couldn't pick one! So instead I decided on just taking a screen shot of everything! (bwahaha)
Pps. Sorry the image is so FREAKIN HUGE!!! But I tried to get it to a size where everything was still legible..
Ppps. Tell Courtey I said "HAIIIII" (and also "Happy Extremely Belated Birthday" to her, because I missed her birthday TcryingT)

Pppppps. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR FINALS!
