|02:26 am - Nothing|
Have you ever had a day where no one event affected you but tons of little ones added up to create a day that made you rethink your out look on things. To day prolly did not change me as much as I am thinking now but things are strange it seems I am no longer as certain about things as I have been in the past not that I am planning on changing any thing just as things approach you they become more real...
Ok enough being out of it, I think i am only out of it because the extreme cold or the fact I just saw ghost world which is an extremely different movie. Some times when you watch a really weird movie it seems to change your state of mind like a high but from weird filming and maybe subliminal stuff unlike a substance based high. I am not going to say it was good or bad but it defiantly was... on a whole the movie was slow paced but I defiantly know some people that this movie applies to and should see it but for me and for most people I would suggest using your time to watch another movie.
In other news today I got My neighbor Totoro, which is sposed to be a really good studio ghibli film, today. It finally arrived from Hong Kong which I chose because including shipping the film was only $5, the only problem is that all the menu titles are in Japanese it still has English sub and dub but you hafta navigate the DVD in Japanese which is not to bad considering how cheap it was (and thank god I know enough Japanese)... Also I bought an Irish flag today and I made it just in time because when I went to the UC to get the flag the flag guy had already packed up and was about to put his cart into his van. Apparently today was a slow day for him because he was planning on staying till 4 but hadn't made many sales or as he explained it with an angry Irish accent "Too many bastard were up all night drinking or something usually sales are good here." I have a different explanation though I think because the Cafe sucks so much this year less people are eating lunch so less people are seeing the angry Irish flag salesman and there fore less people are buying.

Anita made my day today and I did not even see her but she left me a lil plastic sake bottle key chain, replicating a sake bottle form the Edo period, on my desk Just because I lent her a couple of books a month ago. It is really cute and I now am reminded of my love of sake every time I see my keys.
(it looks like this but smaller and plastic)
My day other than that was pretty average but I did manage to declare my geography major tomorrow I hafta declare ID but I'm half way there and I am cleared to register for classes on Wednesday. other than that I did these weird 3D IQ puzzles that aren't really hard but until you see it can be frustrating but I got all three of them… Woot go me (or don't go me cause I was bored enough to do these puzzles. On a better note I got some Chinese and Mai Fun kicks Lo Mein's ass... It’s like Lo Mein but the noodles are thinner like angel hair pasta so it’s better. On a whole I had a good day.

Tonight it was beautiful outside as the leaves fell in the yellow street lights. The wind was the best part of the night though as it rattled through the dry red leaves on the trees it brought a refreshing and almost surreal feeling to me. At risk of sounding trite i wanted the wind to just blow me away like the leaves. I found my self following a small orange cat with a really long tail till it ducked under a car somewhere on Florence street. As much as people say they don't like Worcester or New England its nights like tonight that prove them wrong...
Last Night, However, was very different from tonight. Mike had some friends up from New York and tabby had some friends up form one of the lesser News, New Britain. Mike's friends seemed pretty cool from what I saw of them although two of them had an unhealthy obsession with Madden which they played no stop from about 3 am to 11:30. Tab brought up her sister and Jarred both of which are cool but Tab’s sister brought this girl who brought two really sketchy guys who tried to jack some of are stuff which is really messed up because they came here as Tab’s guests and they didn’t even know Tab that well. But the long and short of it is that they are never coming back up to Clark. Clean up this morning was a huge pain there were cups cans and bottles everywhere and every thing was wet because people left bags of ice everywhere and even now the floor is still wet at least its just water… I hope….
well its time to sleep now...
Oh the best anime ever is now on Cartoon Network http://www.adultswim.com/shows/fullmetal/index.html Its called Full Metal Alchemist so i have to give adult swim a round of applause
or a round of apple sauce if they like that better (mmmm I want apple sauce now)... Watch it I just hope the Dub is good I've only seen the sub...

A fun Image a friend had (Thanks Saory) I watched some of "Osama" to night which was really good from what I saw it is about a girl who dresses as a boy in Taliban Afghanistan. Choices went pretty well tonight but still not that many people showed up so if you need a condom please tell me no need to be shy be proud... I got back to find my roommate and Glenn watching Eternal sunshine which I have to watch tomorrow cause apparently its amazing... and I had some really good conversations tonight so I feel enlightened right now but I hafta get up early to work on Japanese....

|02:45 am - Democracy blues...|
The Election was awful Bush for four more years... But even worse he won the popular election last time I was able to accept it as electoral diarrhea and I could use this excuse to defend America when traveling because Bush does not help our nation’s image when traveling. So I guess the best plan of action is to claim to be Canadian or to defect to North Korea where I wouldn't have to worry about democracy disappointing me( and Kim Jung Il isn't evil he's just ronrey)...
Other than that I went to my classes and got back home to pass out and wake up at 7:45 right in time for ACS...ACS was a lot better than normal we played mafia and actually had a good time unlike normal where we just argue about the dates of events, however, the power struggle that exist in acs between three of its members was just as evident in this game as one of the three tried to control every aspect of mafia( I wont use names cause that could get me into some trouble), After ACS Tor, Alana and I got Chinese... I like Chinese... Tor and I were a bum in Alana's room for a while till she had to get to 'work' (the nerve of some people) but on the way out of Johnson we bumped into Diane and ended up eating some oatmeal raisin(they were good) cookies in the hallway on the first floor, and talking and such for quite some times and the best part is none of live in Johnson... But we got to vent our hatred of Bush, talk about anime, music, shopping, and Tor's sketchy DVD collection... So I managed to have a decent day despite the fact that this country is going to hell... oh and if any one has any pictures of me on Halloween show me I want to put them up in my LJ...
oh in case I did not mention it enough earlier Bush sucks
Please let something great happen like Bush getting hit by a metorite... Some people suggest assassination but I am not much for people killing other people thats what republicans do and the conservative backlash if bush was assasinated would be 9-11 times 100 and I just cant deal with that much country music... Secession is another Option but a rather involved option but I wonder if England would take us back as colonies I swear we won't throw any more tea into boston harbor... Please just take us back, God bless the Queen...

|03:39 am - Halloween!!!|
I had to get up early today cause my parents came to visit for the parent’s weekend thing. We attended the beginning of one of the seminars for the parents’ weekend and after 10 min we all knew it was Bs and decided to go to the armory. The Worcester armory is a 4 story sliver painted building that looks like a factory on the outside but is virtually a medieval castle filled with medieval armor on the inside... after the Armory I ate with my folks at the armadillo depot and slept until the night... The night which happened to be Halloween
so I was a school girl and every one felt up my tissue boobs yay... So I looked something like this
I wish but I did look pretty... pretty funny... I went to rocky horror where during the middle Tor and Alana did my hair like sailor moon
she's the blond one in the middle... Aside from Rocky I had to deal with a friend going through a break up she seemed to be ok but I had to make sure she was ok cause if you don't worry about your friends you don't really have them. Then I found out I left my keys in my room earlier and proceeded to be locked out. So I went on a semi quest to find Mike, which mainly resulted in me talking to people for a friggin long time till I found out mike was asleep in the room already so I had to wake him... happy Halloween people eat lots of candy ... oh and in case your wondering Mercury is my favorite sailor scout, Cause she's the smart one

The General : Float like leaf on river of life... and kill old lady. " Uhg now I am working on a paper and as I predicted I will not sleep tonight.

I was told to update this by an anonymous person who goes to UVM whose name starts with a C. Today's academic portion was based on proposals for papers, so teachers want you to decide your own method of punishing your self and it’s your own fault in the end. I think Dante would have put this punishment in the tenth level of hell, as punishment for the sin that goes on a college student. So I turned one of these proposals today for GIS and I got one back. The one I turned in was something I made up at the last minute but I'm confident it will be harder than I think now to actually write this paper. The one I got back scarred the crap out of me because it said to "talk to me after class on it." I wanted to compare imperial Japan and modern Japan how modern Japan economically dominates the same areas economically that imperial Japan militarily controlled. So after class I talked to the teacher and apparently imperial Japan and history in general has nothing to do with international relations. So I just have to focus on the modern part of the paper. I have one more of these proposals due on Thursday I'm sure it will be annoying because it requires sources. I went to dinner in the caf and surprisingly they had really good potatoes but they had enough garlic on them to kill small children. After dinner I went to democrats I really hope we win. Then I Went to CUFS Rocky Horror is gonna rock. Now I’m back in my room Watching "Child's Play" that’s the Chucky movie its actually really good and my roommate just heated up some Chinese and it smells really good so I am hungry.

|03:00 am - I just created a Live Journal|
Hey, I created this because I should be studying and I figured I needed to distract my self. Today was uneventful, I went to get Halloween candy with a friend, ate in the caf which was serving cold tempeh with cold rice for the vegetarian option which is sub par even by the caf's standards. After wards I went to a choices meeting in which the biggest drama was about the plan for Clark cards only giving access to the dorm that you live in. This in my book is fascism and by fascism I mean it pisses me off and I might even write an angry letter. Now I am studying for a japanese test.
