MEME'D!!

June 11th, 2006 (06:44 am)

Well, I had promised I'd post it myself, so holy bajeebus! A meme!

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on yours if you haven't already.


Also, you know it's time to head to bed when the morning children's television starts.

Alas, Atomsk, you served me well..

So. Today's not been a good day. Anyone got $403.70? Heh..
My iPod effectively died today, which is a great loss, as I actually used it a fair bit for music. Sigh. Battery had been failing for a while, though its death is unrelated; The harddrive today decided it wasn't going to spin up any longer. And instead, display what I've come to really wish it wouldn't: The "sad iPod icon".
So, as the cost to repair Atomsk will be essentially the entire retail cost of it, I may as well upgrade to a current model. Which'll be an extra $140 or so, but still.

Now I've just gotta start saving. Sigh x2.


And be without portable music until I manage to achieve it. Sigh x3.

Exams start tomorrow morning (as in, NINE AM KTHXORZ tomorrow morning~) and I'm totally completely not ready for them!

Two weeks, though; Two weeks of exams mixed with the usual insane rush to finish projects and I'll be done for the semester.
I've still got my PHP project to finish! And my JSP project to start and finish! The JSP one's exactly the same as the PHP one for half (ie, all the html = same, just the back-end's language is either PHP or JSP depending on assignment), aaaand a presentation on this Tuesday for a stupid eCommerce subject we've got, aaaaaand an even STUPIDER presentation on this Friday for INNOVATION - Sweet jesus that class is horrid, and a few other things.

But other than that, life's pretty okay. I've been playing some Bang! Howdy recently, which is awesome fun, but probably too time-consuming for me at this time, so I shouldn't play it... But I do. Alas, poor common-sense, why dost thou ignore me so?

Off I head to sleep again. There's another thing I need to fix, my sleeping patterns; No time!

OH YEAH, BITCHES.

Sooo uh... That posting thing. Right. I'll do that some time.

Until then, have this image I made to totally and completely not elaborate on what I've been doing lately. I made it in the time I could've totally and completely elaborated on what I've been doing lately!

Uh huh.


That's about it.

On sleeping.

HEY GUYS.

I have to be up at 7:30 am tomorrow. Again. I'm awake until ~4 am. Again.
I slept from 5 am to 5 pm today. ... Again.

I can force myself to get up (most times) on the weekdays I'm required to, for class; Ingrained habit from years of doing so for school. However, days I don't, wether or not I may want to get up at any specific time for personal reasons, I can't.

Now, this is a question I'll pose to myself; Why the FUCK can't you get yourself up? Sleeping twelve hours on Sunday. FOURTEEN HOURS on Saturday.

I don't know. I have these dreams, though. Every single night without fail. From the moment I go to sleep, to the moment I can finally rouse myself. They're vivid. Hell, I actually EXIST inside them, if that makes any sense. They're more than vivid, they feel real. I know they aren't, even whilst I'm in them at points, but I can't stop them from happening. What feels like entire stories or something, like a book, playing out in my damned head while I sleep. I doubt it's the sole reason for sleeping so long; At points I do wake up. Lie there for a few moments, turn off an alarm if that's what's woken me up... Then go back to sleep. And as soon as I fall asleep again, it just picks right up from where it left off.

I'm debating writing down some as they happen, as I can recall parts of the previous night/morning/day's dream for a short while after. I'm just getting kinda sick of it, mostly, It's akin to being force-fed a new book/movie/etc every night.

So I've started playing Phantom Brave again. It's still awesome fun. I've got an Archer who's attacking with a bomb, and Marona's wtfpwning everything around the place with a vase... And I've got a cat with a fish, too. Which is fitting.

As for the Thing I Feel I Need To To, I'm... Slowly getting started on it I guess. Yep.

Anyway, not much else's changed since the last post. Later.

I think I need to use this more. Would be a waste to leave it slackin', not being put to use, and all those kinds of thing.

Yeah. Just have to think of something to say, now.

I'm surviving. Currently.

Gotta admit, life hasn't been terribly horrible (horribly terrible?) to me lately. Though, it hasn't been fun, either. Just the same tedium drawing on and on. Go to class, do classwork (sometimes), come home, veg. Play WoW, read, browse Teh Internets(tm), watch tv. I need to start something that I can set my mind to, and feel obligated about doing. And enjoy.

Ah well, I'm probably just a lazy ass.

Later, journal-land.

General thoughts, usual sleepytime entry.

I do a shitty job at keeping this journal. Anyway. Right.

Still playing WoW. Don't care what anyone says about 'omg WoW', as I find it fun, so it's worth playing.
Been thinking about things a lot more lately, too. And starting to draw again, too. I've got all these stories and ideas stuck up inside my head, and I'd love to get them out. They're siphoning. Slowly.
Still studying at Swinburne TAFE, still doing Software Engineering. Workload's gotten fairly heavy, though. It's a pain in the ass; especially as half of the teachers aren't exactly clear on what is required. Should manage though, nonetheless. It's a good course, I'm enjoying the friends I have from it at the least.
Am however sad that I've lost touch with most of you. A hefty bit my fault, of course, but it's still unfortunate. I do read everyone's entries though, even though I don't comment often.
Guess that's all for now, sleep calls. Later, journaland.
