So I finally have internet again! WOOHOO! This means that after I pull myself away from all the wincest communities and World of Warcraft, I might actually get around to describing my birthday week. But first, a Harry Potter meme. I answered everything truthfully and am actually really pleased with my result. Yay!

HP meme )

In other news, I was looking at my pics that I took of my kittens when I just got them, and OMG I forgot how teeny and CUTE they were. And it's not even been a year yet. I love them so much. They're still cute... just huge and fat.

Oh and I had another random dream colage last night, where I drempt that I was Mike Rosenbaum's Lex Luthor explaining to clients that I had just taken over Luthercorp. for real, and that yes, I'm the son of Lionel, so YES, dammit, you might have seen me running around the mansion in my batman underwear when I was little, but that will NOT affect the running of my company. I also drempt that I was helping bunnies and random animals into the Pole Barn at my childhood house. We were running from something that was going to eat them and it was blizzarding and I got them inside just in time, cuz I'm nice. Then I drempt that I was taking a tour of a victorian/roman town and it turned into a WoW/FF type thing where I had to activate a bunch of save points in a specific time. Then I had a quick dream of running through the high-tech basements of the Luthor Mansion to try and save a girl being held hostage by a red T-Rex. (I'm not kidding.) The problem was that it was colorblind and could only see the color Red, which happened to be the color of shirt I was wearing. So I managed to hide by taking my shirt off. Luckily I was still Lex, so it was sexy. Then I also had another tornado nightmare, and for the first time I was actually sucked into it this time. But there was a lot of the normal running and driving away from them too.

Wtf, subconcious? I guess I was going through hardcore internet withdrawl to dream so much in one night. Yeah. So I'll post later, maybe tomorrow about last week.

Hurrah. I'm in a good mood. After a horrible joint meeting (bitch must die) and a pretty good active meeting, a bunch of us walked across campus to a car, then drvoe to the stadium and trespassed on the 50 yard line at about midnight. Then we discovered the new walking bridge over Rt. 261 and stargazed for a while, then walked back to the summit east parking lot and talked until 1:30am. Made me really happy cuz it was fun. The only downside was that I lost my house and mailbox key sometime during the fun.... so now I have to search for them when it's light outside. 

In other news, after a shitty spring break full of angst, stuff is better now... and I can't remember if I said anything about it in my last post, but it's worked out for the most part. Still recovering slightly, but feelin good for the most part.

I've fallen head over heels into any pairing involving Lindsey/Christian Kane after realizing how in love with him I really was. God I love that man. I spent all last night digging up old and new fics and RPS involving him and am planning on doing more tonight.

I also realized how much I miss RPing... especially slash rping, so I'm applying for a new RP and learned that the old Hogwarts one I did during highschool is still running, so I was considering applying back there again. I have lots of time on my hands and really really miss forum based RPs. Plus the Hoggies one will be cool if it's the same people running it- they were my first real internet friends and they introduced me to lots of roleplaying/anime stuff. It's through them that I learned what anime was and the one girl got me heavily into Rurouni Kenshin, which I'm still into. 

My kittens are getting bigger and Bailey's voice has changed... Drake's falling behind in the puberty department, but I'm sure him voice will change at some point.

Oh and I've learned how to cook! Ash taught me how to make packet meals while she was here and emily taught me how to combine lots of random stuff to things and still make it taste good. I've made a packet meal on my own, along with my first marinade and even successfully made myself a hamburger from my old molding of ground beef. I'm so proud of myself!

Plus, Tami showed me where I could download a dvd burner thingy and now I'm able to record clips straight to my computer so I can actually start learning how to make my own vids! I'm SO excited! I just have to decide what clips I want to use in the 2 songs I've already picked out, and record them and then learn how to put them together. Hurrah! 

The only scared thing is that my audition for switching to a Music Education majour is next saturday and I havn't practiced since before spring break. But it's kinda sad that when I really think about it, I won't be too unhappy if I fail. I'll just go on to photography or photojournalism or something. I'm kinda on the college trial program. I'll try about 40 things until I find one I like.

Oh well. Time to look up more Lindsey slash. Hurray! 

(I even made my own icon)

So it's been a while. I made a list cuz there's alot.

First off, the KSU Men's Basketball team became the champions of the MAC tournament this year and went on to the NCAA. That was amazing. At the MAC championship and almost having a heart attack because they let Toledo come back to be within 3 points of tieing the game. But we won and watched our fans charge the floor and celebrate. That was cool. What was cooler was going to Michigan for the NCAA! We had been hoping it would be someplace far away like San Diego, CA or something, but it actually turned out to be good that we only went to MI because not only did we have a load of fans come, but we lost in the first round against Pitt. It was sad having to come back home after only 2 days, but it would have been tons worse having to go back home after only 2 days in San Diego. Even though we lost, our men fought valiently, the refs needed to be shot, and KSU still had an AMAZING season.

As for Kappa Kappa Psi- The candidates are active now, yay for them!! I'm slightly concerned that my little doesn't seem to like his nickname, but I suck at things like that, and it was about all I could think of. :( I'm excited about a D&D game that my one Brother is planning on running for us, cuz I've never played Eberron before and I think it will be fun. Also, the NCD convention was last weekend, and other than having a fever for the entire time and a couple other Brothers getting sick, I had a blast. I went to 3 workshops by myself, (which was kinda sad) participated in them, and really really enjoyed Reading Band this year. Last year it was stop and start, this year we played every piece in our folder all the way through. It was a 100% improvement. We spent alot of time with Toledo (Oh no it's Beta Rho!) a little time with Akron, and enjoyed mingling with brothers from all over the district. Plus the night before convention I had the KKY district council camp out in my apartment, and I believe my cats had a blast in keeping them awake. (Sorry!) I was sad to see the council go, and wish for the best for the next one, because it will be hard to top the Year of the Cock. ( ;) ) Plus MA's final report made our entire chapter cry... In other KKPsi news, I'm planning on running for office next year, though I'm not entirely sure which one I want to go for yet... and it depends on whether I manage to get a chapter office first. 

My kittens are growing. Alot. Both of them have little fat tummies sticking out now, and Bailey managed to get one front paw through his collar. If it had been just a little tighter and in a different place he could have possibly strangled.... which made me have another breakdown and they're not wearing collars anymore. Maybe when they're older. They also killed their first spider, and I was slightly surprised to find myself feeling pity for the spider... watching two kittens torture this little arachnid to death made me realize that Death by Kitten could possibly fall under Cruel and Unusual Punishment. 

[personal profile] soulless_lover has a kidney stone, so love to her, and hope for a speedy recovery. Though she's sitting in my living room right now... she'll possibly see this later ;)

[personal profile] kidcyclone is also currently in my living room, and I made my list about a week and a half ago, so this area was supposed to be reserved for how excited I was going to be to see her, but I think I'll change it to how much I love her and hope she's having a good time.

Job status: None. Application status: 4 submitted. Debt: $1200+. Hope of getting job: Not so much.

"Money?" (that's what's written on my list.) I can't remember what I was going to say about it other than I've got none and owe my mom $1200. A job would be nice. Is there a patron saint of Job Applications?

Spring Break ends in 3 days. I've decided to become a Music Education major... interesting anecdote about that. I've always wanted to be one... I didn't want to leave high school because it meant growing up so teaching was always a possibility. I loved my band director best out of all the teachers I ever had. I've wanted to do this. The Beta Omega class was very supportive... my own Little helped me apply for an audition and has given me tons of advice and info. I announced my plans in a joint meeting and got an applause from TBS (they're all Music Ed majors). I announced my plans in a KKpsi meeting and got groans. I told [personal profile] kidcyclone and she was all for it... I told my mom and she groaned. Why is it that of the 3 people/groups that I care about their opinion most (my Brothers, [personal profile] kidcyclone, my mom), 2 out of the 3 are not supportive and everyone else was more supportive than I've ever seen? Oh well.

Drama needs to be prohibited from the world. I could say everything I'm thinking, but I think I'll save it for a notebook because it could hurt about 8 or 9 people if I just vent and don't consider what I'm saying. I'm sick of fucking drama.

This entry is divided into two parts, good things/news and bad things/news. Bad things first.

Boo:
First off, hugs to Aimee, a Brother in our chapter whose great grandmother just passed away. Second, hugs for Aaron, whose grandmother isn't doing so well either. Hugs to them both.

I think I pulled muscle or something in my leg, because it bloody hurts to walk on and it feels like all the muscles in it are really tight. It's probably because I've been DDRing and I havn't gotten that whole "warm up" thing down yet... I just kinda jump in. Then I stand up for 3 hours straight at basketball games, and run up and down bleachers... so it's not too happy with me.

In the "hurts" section also belongs my finger.... which Bailey stabbed with his claw yesterday morning. I was tying my shoe and he comes over and just sticks his claw deep into my index finger. He didn't rip it or anything... just in an out, but it was deep and felt as though I'd just stabbed myself with a needle. Then (me being smart) I didn't wash it so now it's a throbbing bump, and when I squeeze it puss comes out... so I think it's infected. It's acting like a really fucking painful pimple. Guess he got me back for accidently nearly closing the door on his tail, which I cuddled him and apologized over and over for after he was done hissing at me. 

Also in the bad things section is the fact that I can't remember when [personal profile] kidcyclone comes back from Oregon and I feel bad calling her... but I think it's soon, thought I'm not sure. I hope that things are ok when she gets back tho... cuz she said that her husband is having car issues... as in they need a new one. Oh well... not much I can do about it other than give hugs and distractions.

Yay:
Good things section:
I fricking learned how to use my Paint Shop program and OMG I'm so excited!!! Finally I found the "smudge" button and the "clone" button and lots of other buttons and I made my first manip last night! (Tho it's for my fraternity so I'm not going to post it because no one would get it.) I think it's pretty good for what I had to work with though. Maybe I will post it in time, but not right now. 

My kitties are now completely boostered and vaccinated against everything they need to be, which makes me happy... tho Bailey fucking HATES the vet now. The first time we went he was curious until they gave him a shot... and he became a hissing monster... but calmed down. The second time I could barely get him out of the cat carrier... and when I did he was absolutely flat against the table, hissing at anything that moved, and trying to scratch Dr. Albers during the shot. He let me pet him gently (tho he did hiss at me) and when the Vet assistant tried to pet him, he was having none of that!! I managed to calm him down a bit afterward, and when we got home he was right as rain, but I couldn't believe the little hissing crazy he turned into. Analysis: Bailey+Vet=Hissing Devil. Drake on the other hand was as happy, curious, and hyper as usual, and only hissed when in the waiting room (while inside the carrier) when a dog got too close to the side of the carrier. And the dog was a massive 100+ pound boxer mix with a head larger than both my cats combined. I really don't think Drake was all that scary... but he tried which I guess gives kudos to him. (Loves my cats)

Let's see..... Oh I got rid of two more subscriptions to MMORPGs I never play anymore, which makes me happy, frees up tons of space on my computer, and saves me $30 more a month. Now I just have to figure out how to cancel FFXI since I uninstalled it already, and I need to plug my internet into my PS2 so I can unsubscribe from Everquest: Online Adventures since through the program is the only way to do so. (grumbles about phone calls that take 30 minutes due to all the damn button pushing when I have 1 specific question) 

I finally found one of my favourite games for the Dreamcast, Evolution at the CD Game exchange... and I spent about 6 hours playing it. I love that game sooo much... it's one of the first RPGs I ever played. I first bought it for my brother's birthday when the Dreamcast was still new and worthwhile, and then when he went to college he took it with him and managed to get the system and all the games stolen... so I'm in the process of rebuilding the collection for myself. Now all I need is Evolution 2 (which I hadn't managed to beat) and I'll be set. God I love those games.

I also got new letters made and I love them so much... they look so cool. (Letters as in: Kappa Kappa Psi on a T-Shirt) 

And the final good thing: KENT STATE MENS BASKETBALL FINISHED THEIR NORMAL SEASON #1 IN THE MAC... which means we automatically get a by in the MAC tourney. YAAAAAAAY TEAM! Hopefully we'll make it into the NCAA, which means the band is headed with the team to either: San Diego, Jacksonville, or Salt Lake City. LET'S GO KENT STATE!!!! 

Think that's about it! It's dawn outside... and I have about 6-7 hours for sleep so I might want to get going.

Daddysire should be happy tho.... cuz I've brushed my teeth for the past three nights in a row. Yay for me!

Yeah so I can't remember what I was typing about... I think it was about what I did when I brought [livejournal.com profile] soulless_lover back to her place... which is basically check out a car with her dad so that her old rust bucket could meet a new home. She apparently got it, so that rocks, yay for me being nice to my friends.

Other than that I'm coming up on my first run of bills that I have to pay by myself... and they suck. I have to borrow $200 from my mom to be sure the check doesn't bounce.

Finally took overdue DVDs back that were overdue by like 12 days. Yay.

Changed the litter in my kittens' litterbox for the second time, and used new litter which they seem to like alright... we'll see if it really handles smell better. It's supposidly for "small spaces" but we'll see...

My Little in the Frat is doing pretty good... tho the Candidate class just went through their first tough meeting. I hope they do better than ours did, since we lost a member at this time of our class. I feel for them, though... it's tough. Lurve to them.

Feeling kinda down since it's 3am... I love my kittens but I've been missing having like... a person in my life. I think that's why I'm planning on getting into Fanfiction again. I realized I stopped writing when I came out of my depression. Huh, imagine that? I hope I'm not getting depressed again. Though I heart the LJ because I can journal and it doesn't feel like a chore. I should really back up these files and print them out so in like 30 years I can be like: OMG look how stupid and young I was!! And try to remember what OMG stood for 30 years ago. (It's not Ohio Medical Group like the sign near soulless_lover's house says.)

Think I'll write for a bit then read, then sleep. Daddysire already went to bed. He'll probably punish me for being up so late. Oh well. I don't have any classes tomorrow.

My kittens are now an icon!

Ok, so my kittens are adorable and they're starting to like me more! Yay!

I almost missed my first rent payment date... and definitely missed my tuition payment date. Yay!

I've got insomnia. Yay!

I can't moderate my eating habits! Yay!

Random longness... )

I'm also planning out 2 vids, one being a messed up Bangel (Anuffy? Bufangel? Angeffy?) and the other being a Spangel. I have clips in mind and know what I'm planning on doing... but there's the whole actually getting the clips and learning how to put it together and time it to music bits that I havn't learned yet. Oh well. Everything starts with a concept, right?

Speaking of which, I think I'll do some new year resolutions, even though I don't really believe in them. They're in no order.

1) Learn to manip/vid

2) Post on LJ more often than once a month or every few weeks

3) Maintain friendships with LJ friends, as well as Psi brothers, RL brother, mother, and gamer friends

4) Get my Little through the Psi process.

5) Take care of my kittens

6) Take care of myself.

7) Stay in my apartment

8) Get/Keep a job

9) not get behind in Latin

10) Not drop a class

That's all for now. Until next time... adios.

So I havn't updated since I got back mostly becuase it's been crazy busy here, and I've been lazy.

I got home fine. I finished the Star Wars book. Can't remember the real title so I'll make one up. The Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. Or whatever. Something like that.

Had Christmas Eve massaging [livejournal.com profile] soulless_lover 's shoulder cuz she hurt it moving, and then drank and watched Vampire Hunter D. Good movie that.

Left early in the morning to drive home to Mom's house, got there before my brother even woke up so I got to spend an hour trying to stay awake before pressies. Opened a BUNCH of stuff I needed for the apartment, I heart my mommy. Then went over to my brother's girlfriend's family's house, and had a blast. They're such nice people. I heart them. They've said I'm part of the family, which makes me feel really nice.

In fact, the next day I went back over to their house, without my brother or my mom to help them eat left-overs, and had another really good time.

Then I moved on the 27th and the 28th. That was crazy. I learned that moving even 1 room by myself is impossible. I'm not strong so I had to move EVERY box and item BY ITSELF, which meant TONS of trips up and down stairs and in and out of doors. It took me forever. I finally gave up and moved about half of it then waited until the next day when my mom helped me with the rest and it went about 2939582456 times faster.

On the 29th I set up my apartment and spent about $150 dollars on other needed things, and then yesterday, my mom and I went kitty adopting. We went to the APL in our county, and I found the most adorable little female kitten... she was so cute and had just been spayed so I would have had to take special care of her.... but then was DENIED HER because I wasn't twenty-fucking-one yet. FUCKING AGE DISCRIMINATION STIKES AGAIN. You would THINK that a place that is OVERRUN with cats would LOVE to get rid of another one to a good loving home... BUT NO. Apparently I'm not mature enough to have a kitten. At 20 years of age, I can die for my fucking country, but I can't adopt a kitten.

I left the APL almost in tears, then almost got into an accident because my saddness changed into anger.

After I calmed down, my mom suggested calling the Humane Society in the county next to us and seeing what their age limit was. We called. They adopt out to 18 year olds, but they had no kittens. However, they gave us the name of 6 other agencies. I called 1, and they not only adopt out to 18 year olds, but they also had kittens! We drove over there, and I fell in love with not one, but TWO kittens.

They're brothers, both about 10 weeks old, both neutered, and both gone through all shots and tests except for 1, which the place will do for free in the middle of January. The one is grey with black tiger stripes, and I named him Bailey, and the other is black and white, and I named him Drake. I love them soooo much.

Last night they were getting to know me, and today they weren't as afraid of me anymore. However, I almost had a heart attack because Drake found a crevace under my heater that I didn't even know existed... and he got stuck! He couldn't go forward to get out, so my mom helped me by rigging up a little battering ram out of a washcloth and a rod, and he managed to nudge him from the front. Luckily he was able to reverse his way out of the crevace, and we got him out. I had a bit of a nervous breakdown once he was in my arms, and I think I may have scared him a bit because he seemed a little more shy of me than usual.

However, it's gotten better in recent hours and he's now about back to normal. Except that now they get to stay locked in my kitchen until my mom and I rig up a way to keep the crevace closed. That'll be tomorrow hopefully.

It's kinda odd. Now that I'm living by myself, I'm seeing more of my mother than when we lived together. I wonder if that's typical, or strange. Oh well. I love my mother. And my kitties. And my apartment... though I'm still very nervous that I might start to hate it after a while.

I'm consumed with worry about that and the kittens. I'm so scared that I'm going to turn out to be a horrible owner. That I'll start to neglect them like I neglect myself... or my friends. I've never been good with committment... and now I committed myself to about 20 years of full time responsibility. I'm so afraid I'm going to hurt them.

That's what most of my breakdown was about really. The fact that I had let my baby kitty get into harm while I was washing dishes. The fact that I was only thinking about 1 need of mine, when now I HAVE to worry about lots of things all at once. I don't know if I'll be able to handle the kittens, school, having a Little in the Fraternity, and possibly a job all at once. The problem is that the only thing I can afford to not do is the Little... and I really don't want to give that up. I mean, I'm spending SO much money... so I need a job, and I HAVE to continue school or else I can't do the Fraternity and I'd have no real reason for existance... and I HAVE to take care of the kittens because no one else can. My mom's allergic to them and so is everyone else... plus I can't take them back to the shelter.

I'm just nervous, stressed, and scared at the moment. And the biggest problem is that it's still fricking "vacation". Maybe once school starts again, I'll have a better idea of how much I've really bit off, and try to decide how much I can chew. I just hate all this anticipation when I know I should be sitting back and relaxing. I suppose that I'll only be able to relax once I'm out of school... which unfortunately isn't going to be anytime soon.

And this upcoming semester was supposed to be my "blow off" semester. Ha.
