Summer Reading has begun [May. 4th, 2005|02:30 pm]

[music |pages turning]

Ok, so after watching the movie version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy I was struck with the urge to reread the book (not unusual for me). Luckily, it is now summer so I actually have time to do that. Of course, it's been ages since I read it and even then it was a library copy so I don't have a copy now. I go down to Waldenbooks in the hopes of not having to spend a ridiculous amount on it and lucked out even compared to what I had hoped for. I got the leather-bound uber edition with all books included for a grand total of $12.72 after tax!! I also pre-ordered Harry Potter 6 while I was there since you get 40% off that way, and you don't have to pay anything at all until you pick it up! Anyway, I was excited because now I have at least some of the summer reading I want to do set up and I have time to start.

So now, off I go into the galaxy with my guide and my towel...

That time of year again... [Apr. 6th, 2005|10:43 am]

I hate registering for classes!!!! Why is it that the history department seems to continually like to make my life more difficult than it need be? All I ask is for them to have the classes at the 3000 level open long enough for me to register for one, or maybe not to have them seemingly all at the same time, that would be nice too. At the rate I'm getting into history classes before they close, I'll never finish my minor. I now remember one of the many reasons why I changed my major in the first place...Gods I hate this school some days!!

I'm going fucking nuts. I am about to start screaming. This would be the time to hide the weapons and stand out of the way. If you hear strange noises Hope, it probably isn't the safest time to knock on the door.

You have all been warned.

In need of suggestions [Nov. 5th, 2004|11:11 am]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Ok, so I am trying to figure out what to take next semester and I am also in the process of changing to a new major. This brings up several questions for me about required classes and timing. Most of these are just ones that I have to look things up for, but there's one that I am looking for advice on.

I came to college with 20 hours of credit from AP tests, so I was technically a second semester freshman when I got here. As it stands now, taking a moderate class load I would end up finishing on time (even with the switch) by December '06 (Dec. because of coming in as second semester). The thing that I don't particularly like is that I would end up with that last semester being rather deleterious since I would only have about 7 hours of credits needed for graduation.

My other option is to take a heavy class load (while still working) and finish in May '06. I like this idea better because it would mean not having to be here an extra summer and fall and having that stupid "left over semester." It would also mean that I could just let that last lease run out without renewing it (since it ends in June). The only thing is that it would be exceedingly difficult to take a class load that heavy and work and have anything even resembling a life. I already have trouble balancing things at times and my schedule now is about 3 hours less than the heavy one.

I really like the idea of getting done sooner but I don't want to have a breakdown doing it, so this is my problem. I can't decide which course to take and I need to by the time I register for next semester. I would really appreciate any advice, suggestions, or thoughts that people could offer on this.

If any of it didn't make sense to you, please ask.

Thank you.

This is kind of sad [Oct. 4th, 2004|12:15 am]

[music |"1985" - Bowling for Soup]

ok, I know that I was barely alive at this point, but damn it this song is so catchy and it's putting me in a better mood so...

"1985"

Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husbands a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned twenty four
Only been with one man
What happen to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass
On the hood of White Snake's car
Her yellow SUV, is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing, has been, alright

Since Bruce Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woo-hoo-hoo

1985

Woo-hoo-hoo

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink
Even Saint Elmo's Fire
She rocked out to wham
Not a big Limp Biscuit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini-skirt made of snake skin
And who's the other guy singing in Van Halen
When did reality, become T.V.
What ever happen to sitcoms, game shows

On the radio was

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woo-hoo-hoo

She hates time, make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop!
Stop!
Stop!

And bring back

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she's still preoccupied
With 1985

Bruce Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she's still preoccupied

Ok, so sorry for making you deal with that, I know I'm nuts...anyway...

Public Service Announcement [Sep. 19th, 2004|12:55 pm]

[mood |awakeawake]

This is just a general notice that the store I work at, Secrets on King Street, will be having costumes this year for Halloween. We will have womens, mens and kids costumes available, though not all of them will be in the store. We have tons of pages of costumes in the catalogs and orders placed by October 15th should be here for Halloween. I also have $10 off coupons for any purchase of $30 or more, just come find me or leave a message if you want one.


Also, today, Sept. 19th, there is an open house type event for ladies that want to check out or try on the costumes we have in the store. The store is not technically open for business, though if you're looking to party a bit and check out pre-Halloween fun come on by.

So, yeah, I'm a geek and an Asatru, but this is just so cool.  It's a chess set based on Ragnarok.  You should all check it out here.  The same ebay store has lots of other sets that vary from Chinese dynasties to the Civil War, so if you are into chess at all or even just into unique game things this is a really cool ebay store to go to.  Anyway, just thought I would share..

-Angel-

P.S. And all of you should check out the band that I'm listening to as well.  They are completely mind blowing in their awesomeness.  You can find them at www.twelvegirlsband.com.  They are both wonderful and innovative.

Gods I hate shopping [Aug. 6th, 2004|06:34 pm]

[mood |bitchybitchy]

So yeah, body image...it sucks ass. This is especially true when it's about things that have always been that way and you can't really change. *sigh* Most of the time I realize that it's just not worth thinking about, but when it's thrown loud and clear in your face in the middle of an underwear store it is hard to ignore. I just want to shoot things, I really do. Please fashion industry, conspire with my body to screw me in the ass emotionally just a little bit more, please I really need it. Anyway, I suppose I should start sewing again so that I can actually have clothes to wear, since it doesn't seem that the modern clothing industry acknowledges my body type as being in existence anymore.

*sarcasm ahead, not intended to offend but to rant*

I am the last of a dying breed. I must have children now so that I can pass on the genes that allow women to have boobs and hips without a huge waist. Now I have a goal in life and a reason to live for. I must save the world from the doom of curve-less females. Gods damn it I hate the fashion industry. Public flogging should be reinstituted to punish these morons for the hell they put some of us through.

Anyway, like I said, I don't mean to offend; I do realize that there are people out there that have just as much trouble with clothing for the opposite reason, but this is my journal and my self righteous rant.

So, yeah, end rant.

As of 4 o'clock today I will be leaving for Gastonia. If you are in Boone and need me you can call my cell phone or wait until Sunday night. If you are in Gastonia, feel relativly free to call and rescue me from my family. Help away from them would be appreciated, plus you should all see the black hair, as none of you have yet. Anyway, this was just a note of position update. You may now continue on with your lives.
