Well, I sure blew this break. Did nothing but watch anime and play Pokemon Platinum. I did read Richard III, which sort of goes under improving the mind, but I've really gotta do some homework. Fortunately I have less reading than I thought I did.

Oh, and I hear (a little late) that Capcom is remaking the first Rockman/Megaman Battle Network game for the DS! I've wanted to play it, but I was afraid the gameplay might be kind of aggravating, given that they presumably improved for the later ones in the series. This soothes the pain of the GAME-BREAKING BUG in the DS version of number 5. The first one has Masa-san in it~

Well, I'm still a little angry. Did no one check that shit before sending it out?

EDIT: N/M, I tried it again it in a fit of shounen spirit and I think I found a trick to pressing the buttons!

Spent the weekend at home; we had some friends over for movie night and watched Wages of Fear. I wasn't able to finish it because it got a little too intense for me, but I made it about an hour in. Then last Tuesday the Intro to Film movie was Citizen Kane, which I cried at. Again. I've really gotta toughen up or something. (But, like, it's a good movie, so it's supposed to move you, right?) Oh well, Kurita cries easily too, so that makes me not feel so bad about it.

I might ask for a new iPod for Christmas or something. I feel bad about that, because I feel pretty strongly about conspicuous consumption, but two years is pretty good, I guess, when lots of people get a new one every year or so. I really am running out of room on it, but then again, it's not like I need need to have all my music synced at once. On the other hand, the holidays are a good time to get things, and I may not have another chance soon if I change my mind. And I can definitely give my current to one of my parents, since it'll hold all their music. Sigh. #firstworldproblems, I guess.

EDIT: I feel like I should do more fandom-related stuff here, so I guess I'll post some more Amazon Trio stuff tomorrow. The tag for them is so big in the tag cloud that I feel like I come off a bit... I don't know, obsessed, but I've loved them since I was twelve or so, so I feel like they've sort of done a lot for me just in terms of making me happy. Plus, I am sort of proud that I taught myself how to make animated gifs.

I've been bingeing on MST3K on YouTube for the past few days, and I've gotta say, while High School Big Shot features some of my favorite riffs of all time, it's also the most depressing damn thing I've ever seen.

Wooooo I am great!

As of 7 PM yesterday, I'm a high school graduate.

This is so weird.

Two AP tests down, one to go. I think I did pretty well on Stats and English Lit.
And we have a new computer, with most of the files from the old hard drive recovered! I lost my bookmarks, but that's not a huge deal.
antler_action: (I'm important)
Oh, Stats did not go well. I hate it when you study everything you're not sure about and then none of that is on the test, and the things you were pretty sure about turn out to be the things you don't know. Thank God for the free response, but I'm still looking at a B- if I'm lucky. I think I aced my Latin exam, though.
So I've been making Kare Kano icons to cheer myself up, but that just reminded me how bad Yukino would kick my ass on midterms. And everything else, for that matter.

Midterms are eating me, but I hereby vow that after they are over, I will get a job. From there, I will begin earning the money for:
  • My very own copies of Age of Bronze
  • The final volumes of Kare Kano
  • Checking out Special A and Wild Ones, which look to be my kind of thing
Now that I've posted it here, I have to do it. And with that, back to AP Stats.

So I'm watching Gankutsuou, which is basically The Count of Monte Cristo with space vampires and cyborgs and whatnot.

Franz is being ridiculously obvious about his FORBIDDEN SECRET LOVE, but no one seems to have noticed. Maximilien especially should have picked up on something, but I guess he was just too busy with his own little entanglement. And I think the Count just ate a baby.
antler_action: (Default)
Wow, real life ate me for a couple of days there. But now that I'm back, hi to my new friends!

On a somewhat related note, Moby Dick is actually pretty fun to read. I was expecting hell on earth after Billy Budd.

I took that daemon test at the Golden Compass website.
Alvin? )

Passed my driving test!

Took my driving test yesterday and failed. I need to work on my parallel parking, apparently. At least I didn't have to drive there, because we would have gotten even more lost than we did. Afterwards Mom was like, "Are you upset?"  But I'm not really too torn up.
Also, some crazy thing happened and it turns out I never got the summer assignment for English class. I have to either email the teacher or talk to him where the entire class can hear me, and I can't get his email because the school's website keeps crashing my Internet. Argh.

I've got Kyou Kara Maoh lined up in my Netflix queue. So far I've seen the first five episodes, and it seems pretty good. It hasn't really grabbed me yet, but hopefully I'll be able to get more into it once I can watch the episodes I have at home. Unfortunately, I have to find a time when my little brother won't come in and watch it with me, and my mom won't come in, watch it for three minutes, and then ask if we can watch something that someone over the age of 7 would be interested in.
...Which pretty much narrows it down to the middle of the night. Ugh.

So, after about six years of lurking in fandom, I've finally made my own journal, complete with self-made icon of questionable quality. Let's see how this goes.
