Summer has officially begun. I've started working and I'm constantly exhausted. I noticed to day that I think I'd do a really good job as a manager at the snack bar... I mean, I can read pretty well into situations and it really wouldn't be that hard.... plus I know how to cook pretty much everything. I'm getting paid either way, so it doesn't really make that much of a difference.

I SHOULD be starting my summer work but I really don't feel like it. At all. But my goal is to finish before the end of June, but right now I'm just focusing on saving up for a car... hopefully an old porsche 911 (see pictured), but we'll see. Isn't it adorable though?? That's a 1979 911, it's sooooooooooooo cute. I love them so much. *cough* but anyway, I might also go to the Coldplay concert in August with a friend from work, but I'll have to see if I can get tickets. Fingers crossed!

Sorry... Again.

Sorry I haven't posted recently it's just I FINALLY have free time again, so I decided that I would use it for stuff other than writing on the blog. I took the AP Government test, which I think went really well, like better than I expected. I probably got a 4 or 5.... I got an A on my graphic design final, which I turned in almost a week late, so I still have a high in that class. The only thing I really have to worry about now it just, doing my homework, and passing my chemistry class. I should be fine.

I finished watching the entire Rurouni Kenshin anime and the two OVAs. It only took me two months... The first two seasons of the anime brought back serious nostalgia, but the third season was sorta... well... not really that great. The last story arc was really stupid and it sorta had a "Whoops we ran outta paper, guess we have to end the series" ending. The first OVA, Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal, was AMAZING. It was so beyond sad, and was exactly like the story was in the manga. I seriously wanted to cry. The second OVA though, Samurai X: Reflections, sorta irked me. It really jumped away from the original plot, like in totally random ways. It felt like I was watching an animated fan fiction of what a crazy, angsty, Kenshin x Kaoru fan would've wanted the series to be like. Kaoru was too well, understanding of how Kenshin was still in love with Tomoe and his unsatiable need to wander. Plus Sano was randomly in China... I mean what the heck?

Whatever though. I spent about 10 hours yesterday clearing out and refilling my Zunebabeh. Because of the settings I had, there were lots of double songs taking up priceless space, so I copied all the music I could, then wiped it. I also associated album art to EVERYTHING. So it actually looks like I bought the music, which I did. It was just the old software wouldn't let you change album information (it does now, which is part of the reason why I chose to do this yesterday) so whenever I took music from iTunes, wrote it onto a CD and put it on my laptop again, it associated it all on one CD, even if it was a bunch of completely unrelated songs. That pissed me off so I had to fix it. And I did. I even made album art for the songs that they didn't have album covers for.

Another positive of my life cooling off is that I've had time to go out with my friends, and not be studying. I went and saw Iron Man again (I had already seen it with my parentals the saturday it came out) and it was even more epically awesome, plus I got to see it with a bunch of my besties, which made it even more fun. It was the most incredible movie experience EVER. First of all we showed up 10 minutes before the movie started. Turns out it was a sold at show. There were four of us so we split up to find seats. My friend Ali and I went one way while Stephanie and Angela went another. Angela and Stephanie found primo seats together two rows from the top, a little to the left of the center. Then, the couple next to them moved and we got to all sit together. Dead center. Third to top row. In an entirely digital theater. It. was. AWESOME. Now I'm on a mad hunt to find a Iron Man poster to put on my door.

Oh, just a random little thing before I go, after the movies we went to Border's to wait for my mom. I went through magazines and I found the duPont Registry for the Exotic Car buyer. Now, I always have had a serious car fetish. I LOVE foriegn, expensive, FAST cars (i.e. Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, the usual). It's my life goal to make enough money so I can buy MULTIPLE expensive sports cars. I knew that the magazine would be fun to look at and maybe I could cut pictures out or whateber, but what I wasn't expecting was that there'd be ads for PRIVATE JETS. Like, to buy one... or for "Model Matchmaking for Serious Affluent Men". All I could think was "Woahh... I wanna make enough money to shop for private jets in a magazine..."

Sorry, to anyone who actually reads this, that I haven't posted recently. I've just been really stressed. Since tennis started, it's like the heavens opened up and let down more rain than we've seen ALL YEAR. Because of this misfortune, several matches have been postponed, until, the last two weeks. I've gone to around ten matches in the past two weeks, which combined with tennis practice and Mr. Morris blowing a gasket with the AP test coming up, I've been completely swamped. I'm stressed beyond recognition.

Good news though, is that I got into National Honors Society. Along with that, I just realized (because out of school I'm completely slow) that one of my main competitors for valedictorian (not my only competitor, but the most threatening) will be graduating next year instead of in 2010, which means she won't be in my class. I have no idea why she wants to do that, but, whatever. She obviously has a plan.

I also won my mixed doubles match in tennis today. My and my partner Jordan won 6-0, 6-0. It really isn't that impressive, since the people we were playing had only been playing for four weeks. They did really good, considering. The guy had a WICKED fast serve.

But on the outside of all this school stuff, I really wish I had more free time to start doing some crafty stuff. I wanna make a cool cover for my USB drive, a speaker pillow, and start practicing sewing so I can make a costume for Otakon in August.

Beyond that, I have two graphic design projects due in a reasonably short period of time, an enormously hard AP test that I have to study my sorry butt off for, and a completely time consuming sport that is exhausting. I cannot wait for summer, but oh, wait, I'm gonna have to work my butt off all summer so I can afford a car. Whoopdee do.

Ugh, headache >.<

We had tennis practice today, for the first time in a while (it's been raining a LOT) but I'm really tired now and I have a major headache. I feel a little emo today, I really don't feel like doing much of anything. I'm probably just gonna go watch TV and do some homework. Oh but I think I'm gonna start another blog soon. It won't replace this one, but it should be fun. I'll put a link on here when I set it up. Well I'm gonna go.

So, today was Easter Sunday which, in my heathen ways, means I searched for eggs and got major money and candy from my family. On the plus side though, I am no longer broke! WHEEE! *cough* Okay, so last night I had the most gorey, disturbing, rated-R dream I think I've ever had.... EVER. It involved Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin BEFORE he vowed not to kill anymore. Sorta based off the OVA except BEYOND that level of gore. *shudder* Yuggghhh it was beyond gross. I think I'm scarred for life... but it was a very intriguing dream... probably because I am so in love with Kenshin :]

Combine with Modern Dance to Witness Internal Combustion

So, last night I went to see this modern, dance... thing. It's called Shen Wei after the name of the man who invented the idea of it. I'm still not exactly sure what was going on, but I know it involved dancers flailing around on a huge canvas wearing socks on their hands covered in paint. I dunno....

Springy Break

Spring Break started on Friday, with a resounding putter. I intended to finish all of my government homework on Friday, along with other things, but instead I watched my sister play Super Mario Galaxy on our Wii for around three hours. Then she finished, I ate lunch, and I played Super Smash Brothers Brawl for another two and a half hours until tennis practice. I played really well in doubles but totally bombed in singles. Then I went home, ate dinner, and played Smash Brothers for another two hours, then went to bed.

Today, I got up, went to tennis practice (I was the only top ten girl there, unfortunately, even though I'm ranked aorund 5th or 6th) but fortunately I won my singles match. After that, we drove up to Baltimore to this place called Holibard's Sportscenter. It sells mainly tennis gear along with other obscure sports equipment. They even have a tennis wall where you can demo rackets.

The one problem with this store is that it's insanely complex to get anything done, you order rackets in one place, get help in another place, and pick up demo rackets in a third place, and pay in another. So I felt like a moron the whole time, until I finally found a racket that felt good to demo (which I found on my own without help), which I got. I also got a pair of match shoes that are the team colors, along with some new grip tape. We came home and chilled for a while, then went to Smokey Bones for dinner. Afterwards, we went to Sports Authority to see if they had the same racket for cheaper (they didn't) and then went next door to Target to get me another tennis skort and some ear buds for my Zunebabeh, since my old ones have been on the fritz. I'm not sure if I like these new ones either though.

Oh well, it's late, so I'm gonna watch some old, classic, amazing anime (Rurouni Kenshin for those who care... actually no one cares, since almost no one reads this blog) that my new really good friend Ali lent me, and start on my buttload of government breakwork. I'll write later!
