Time for an update. Yey!

I saw OotP with da Mike this weekend.  As far as I know, we both liked it.  He's not a shipper in the least, but at least he understands my point of view on everything.  I noticed they took out my favorite scene, dernit... well, two of them, really: The part in the DoM where Hermione almost gets killed and Harry's all "ZOMG NO!!", and the part where ... Grupp? Gromm? What's his name?... did something and Harry pulled Hermione behind a tree.  Those parts made me squee, and... what? nuffin' in dis moveh? DAMMIT!

Instead we get R/Hr stuff that, as far as I can remember, didn't exist in the book. Woopee.  No offense to those who liked it, but c'mon...  Well, at least the R/Hr setup is more obvious to me now with those scenes.  I swear, I got absolutely NOTHING from the books except the fact that they drove each other nuts.  And I don't think that's a healthy relationship-in-the-works.

Draco's getting fewer and fewer scenes.  Poopie, huh, [ profile] mea_panda? :( *huggles*

Yeah, anyway... my family asked me why I wasn't all excited about it like I used to be.  I told them how sick I was about the "politics of it" and left it at that because I don't think they care about all the fandom wars and all that.  Then they gave me a hard time for giving a shit about the "politics."  Thanks, family. Way to understand. e_e

Aaaaand... I actually attended my session at the Biofeedback center.  To treat my anxiety issues, they're going to 1. teach me a new breathing technique, 2. monitor my vitals in certain situations to see when I should use it, and 3. introduce exposure therapy to teach me how to use it in the approriate situations.  Exposure therapy isn't supposed to work for Sociophobes, but it's worth a try, I think.  There really isn't any other specialist in the area I can go to, so this is my last hope here.

I'd borrowed Mike's Final Fantasy Tactics Advance from him and have been playing it at work at at home for a couple of weeks now.  I beat it last night, but I'm still playing it because I want to finish all the missions.  Omg, stupid addicting strategy games!  .... But I love them anyway.

Sonic #177 is the shizzle, as always.  Ian has really breathed new life into the comic.

Oh yeah, and it took a couple of months, but my period FINALLY started.  I'm just glad I'm not preggers.
lunabuna: (garden state - blah drugs)
Heh... someone clipped out an article from the newspaper about a parent concerned for his son, whose grades are falling fast and all he does is play X-Box all day.  The advice collumnist told the father to take away the X-Box totally, blah blah blah, addiction is a problem, blah blah blah.

I think it was directed at me.  Robert thinks I spend way too much time at home in front of the computer.  I've explained the situation to Mom, and she understands, but I just think it's funny how ignorant he comes off.

If he's referring to computers in general, I've been doing computer stuff since I was 5.  If it's internet he's all on about, I've had the internet since 9th grade and my gpas were always 3.0+, not counting the semester I had Speech, which was a bitch for a sociophobe.  If he's referring to World of Warcraft, ... well, I've been playing MMORPGs since 12th grade, and only w/i the past year have my grades been slipping.  And it's not because I've been playing too much WoW. On the contrary, I play a heck of a lot less than I used to, much do Mike's dismay.  The reason I'm doing poorly is because I'M OFTEN TOO AFRAID TO GO TO CLASS.  That, and I have way too much trouble focusing on homework, which I've been known to have issues with since 7th grade.

It's probably Robert who put that article up.  Mom knows I do internet stuff because it's the only form of social interaction I can muster with anyone besides Mike.  If Robert prefers, he can take away the internet and/or my computer, albeit illegally, but he'll find all I do is sit in my room regardless.  Computer or no computer, I'm still petrified to go outside.

Speaking of outside, I went with Mom to a NAMI meating about psychological disorders and nutrition last night.  In the course of the walk of 20 feet from the car to the building, I got bit by a flea on my ankle.  Not even a full minute's worth of walking and I get bit!  ARGH!!  Fleas must DIE!

I went and saw my school councelor on Tuesday.  We've decided that I should petition for complete retroactive semester withdrawals for Spring 06 and 07 along with a plea to not boot me out of the school.  I have all the paperwork pretty much done, save for the three required signatures, and am going to turn it in tomorrow.

My monitor never fixed itself, so I ended up buying a flatscreen 19".  Not much of a difference from the old one, which was a BIGFATOLDSKOOLMONITOR but also 19 inches.  The only real difference is that my middle computer speaker is behind the monitor now instead of on top of it.

I'm glad I'm not feeling so crappy anymore.  That really bites.

This following poem is composed entirely of actual quotes from George W. Bush.

Make the Pie Higher

I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It's a world of madmen
And uncertainty
And potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked
Is our children learning?
Will the highways of the internet
Become more few?
How many hands have I shaked?

They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.
I know that the human being and the fish
Can coexist.

Families is where our nation finds hope
Where our wings take dream.
Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Vulcanize society!
Make the pie higher!
Make the pie higher!

lunabuna: (er - when I panic i make this face)
My monitor is dying on me!  It is flashing magenta colors with long, horizontal streaks!

Considering I've had it for 3 years and the person I got it from probably had it for who-knows-how-long, it only makes sense that it's finally dying.

And oh god, reading this as I type it is hurting my eyes AND my brain.  STOP FLASHING!

Argh, I'm poor and can hardly afford a new one.  I'm going to have to tap into my Wii funds, which does NOT make me happy at all. T_T
lunabuna: (sonic - bunnie sorry)
This is such a goddamn pain in the ass.  It looks like the only course of action is to tolerate it until it goes away, if it goes away.  It's driving me crazy, though, which isn't fun.  It sucks cuz there isn't an easy fix-- it requires all this therapy or personal strength, which I don't have much of.  It's like somebody up there is all "LOL HERE U GO KBYE" and sticking me with this crap to deal with, which is compounded by my other issues, and makes it that much harder to be a normal human being and lead a productive life.

Sheesh, and some people wonder how others can be suicidal.  Put up with this shit long enough and you'd understand.

and lawl, vagueness.
lunabuna: (sonic - bunnie "hoo-hah?")
Dude... is drawing anthropomorphic characters (e.g. Sonic the Hedgehog and similar fan characters) really that big a taboo?  I thought it only went as far as the peeps who drew them with genitals and doing each other and gross stuff like that.  But by drawing them as a preference over humans or anything else... is that weird?

Of course, half of my Flist are anthro artists, lol, so I dunno how biased replies will be, but a comment in [ profile] fanartrants got me wondering.

lunabuna: (wow - sasha's dance)
Long story short, since my GPA has been crap, I get kicked out of CSUSM unless I convince the board that I'm struggling in school because of certain hardships.  Mainly, psychological disorders.

So, my question to you guys is this:

Social phobia, agoraphobia, depression, and some undiagnosed sleep disorder-- good enough reasons to warrent them giving me more chances, or not?  What do you guys think?

And speaking of depression, I've been in a rut for a week or so now.  I can feel it, but I can also feel the Prozac fighting it off, but not in its entirety.  So, I end up kinda wavering between hopelessly depressed and okay.  That amounts so a nice, steady "blaahhh don't want to do anything but don't feel so downright bad that I want to off myself on the spot" kinda feeling.

Not to sound angsty, but I feel like my life is meaningless; like the things I want to do I can't do because I'm not qualified or able to, for one reason or another.  I couldn't live with myself if I ended up at a McDonald's job for the rest of my life. I gotta excel somehow, do something I love, make a difference.  I want to be an animator, or work with animals in some fashion, but it's like... I can't do either if I can't attend the classes instructing me how to because I'm too paranoid of being in public.  And even if they offer online courses, sometimes just the idea of coursework stresses me out, and the only way I know how to deal with such stress is to avoid it as best I can.

The only way I think I can do better is to either be able to focus on a topic I'm very passionate about (animation, cartooning, video games, animals), or find SOME way to counteract all this emotional crap I have stacked against me holding me back.  Unfortunately, both options are very expensive, and I'm poor.  Capitalism, ftl.

God, can NOTHING make me feel good? Frickin' art?  Talking to Mike?  Going outside?  Playing WoW?  God... I might as well take some drugs and go to bed early.  Being conscious doesn't have much value to me right now.

Using my dancing cheetah icon because it makes me feel slightly better.
lunabuna: (sonic - bunnie sorry)
.... um...

WTF, grades.
lunabuna: (scotland pa - fu :))
Well, I'm job searching atm, and I'm interested in a job with animals, like at the Wild Animal Park (an off-location of the San Diego Zoo, for you non-So. Cal peeps) or the Humane Society.

For those of you who don't live in Escondido (that would be... all but one of you, save Coral, who USED to live in Esco, but moved before the following incident occured), the Humane Society was originally located at Kit Carson Park.  It was a semi-old building, made of brick 'n all, but it had plenty of space around it for dog-walking and whatnot.  Well, in 2001, it caught fire and took dozens of innocent animals with it.

As I was looking through Google for possible job opportunities, I came across an article on their current funding issues with their new location and came to learn that they designated the fire as arson.



When we adopted our first cat, Bob, awhile ago, at the front desk was an iguana that just kept the clerk company.  Articles covering the fire at the time made note to say that she didn't survive.  Fucking bastards.

Shit likes this makes me want to go on a murderous rampage.
lunabuna: (x-files - iX-Files)

- Though I'm feeling better, I'm still quite the gimp from my butt bruise.  Walking is doable, but bending over or lifting my legs high are big no-nos.

- I went out with Mike's family after work at Pat 'n Oscar's, and on the way home, I bit Mike's finger out of affection.  This grossed out his sister to no end.  We both got a huge laugh out of it; him because he loves making his sister squirm, and me because usually he's the one who bites me somewhere. ...And that sounds quite sexual. I don't mean sexually, I mean playfully, like on the neck.

- We went and saw Shrek the Third. It was good. I didn't think it was quite as good as the last two, but it was still good.  His sister loved it because it had musical theatre in it, and she's a drama major.

- On the way home, we nearly hit a cat.  Mike's dad stopped the car quite fast to avoid hitting it, but dispite getting honked at, it didn't budge.  For a split second, we thought it was either one stupid or one very scared cat.  But then we realized it was just a cardboard cutout of a cat with dimes taped where eyes should be to immitate the reflection in  cat's eyes.  After the person behind us made the same mistake in honking at it, we decided it was a hazard, drove back around, and picked it up.  Someone could've been seriously injured if they'd swerved to avoid it and into oncoming traffic.  It's got to be the worst practical joke I've ever seen.  The only plus side is that we made 20 cents off it.

People can be so sick sometimes.

- I dreamt I was at this gathering at some ghost town in So. Cal somewhere.  It had to be relatively close to the "inland" area, because it had a defunct UCI branch.  I watched someone make a documentary about how people would die in this town, like walking off a very high cliff or something.  Some of the kids that attended were playing game where you were assigned a chemical element, like oxygen, chlorine, phosphorus, etc. and to win, you had to stab a person with the appropriate abbreviation (Cl, O, Ph).  So, kids were running around stabbing each other. Some died.  It was very disturbing.

So disturbing that I was completely freaked out and wanted to get out of there right away.  But the family that I traveled with insisted on browsing the gift shops.  They were particularly fascinated with a snowglobe simulating a war battle that wouldn't stop snowing or moving around until the anniversary of the occasion. I just thought it was creepy.

Then I dreamt I got two A's in my classes.  Heh, there's a good indication that I was dreaming.

Okay, I can't type anymore. I've reached my limit on sitting for the day.

lunabuna: (er - aquatic mischief)

I am such a DOOFUS.

I go to sit on the bed, I MISS, and slide right onto what would be the floor, but is instead the wheel of a computer chair.  Right on my stinkin' tailbone.

The pain is indescribable.  Moving my legs or twisting my torso sends agonizing pain through my lower body.  I've been pretty much bedridden since it happened because moving, walking, sitting, even laying in the wrong position hurts too much.

I'm not sure if I broke anything. Not like they could do anything about it if I did. Can't really put a cast on something like that.  Man, though, I have a deep purple bruise on the top of my butt, and I'm expecting it to get worse as time goes on.

And every time it hurts, all I can think about is that one E.R. episode where this guy in leather and a dominatrix go into the ER after the guy fell from a harnass from the ceiling.  The guy comments about his legs, forget what he said, and Susan, the doctor, says in the most casual tone... "You probably bruised your butt."

Back then I didn't know how that could be possible, but believe me, I KNOW NOW.  Susan, I bruised MY butt. :(

By the way, Season 7 is out on DVD now. Tempting... I told myself to just get 6, 7, and 8. I've got all of 9 and 10 on my harddrive in their original airings. And besides... Carby in those later seasons kinda sucked hard.
lunabuna: (yoshi - wobble)
I'm such a poseur, I had to give this a try.

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon/fanon.

Y'all know my fandoms. I'm on quite a bit of a Sonic kick, though, so if you wanna hit me up with a Sonic char, that'd be ideal, but do what you want.  For the record, I don't know jack about Silver, Mephiles, Elise, and very little of Blaze.  Someday when I'm not a starving college student, I'll get a 360 and be ka-nowledgeable.

Haha... nobody ever does my memes. I'll bet I'll get two responses to this thing, tops.
lunabuna: (sonic - mighty plays gamecube)
If anyone sees Sonic #175 on the stands or on a magazine rack or whatever.. BUY IT.

IT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT.  In fact, the awesome cover doesn't do it justice.  You don't even have to know what happened in past issues.  It's all irrelevant after the events in this issue.

Jesus effing Christ, how're we supposed to buy Sonic SatAM DVDs if nobody carries 'em? I'm looking at YOU, Fry's, Circuit City, and Wal*Mart!

Target got 50 bonus points in my book.

Ohhhh, sweet fanart-covered DVD box... let me rub you against my cheek.  Ohhh yeah.  You're home now, baby.

Speaking of fanart, I gotta scan all this crap building up in my sketchbook.  I'm not near finishing any of it, but I haven't done much completed art as of late.  Going through the Knuckles comic series always gives me a ton of ideas because of all the undiscovered potential in the relationships between key characters.  For instance, I have my theories on why Spectre's such a hardass and why he wears that Snakeman helmet (...from Mega Man 3... yeah).  Also... where the FUCK is any plot behind the bagillion guardians' wives?  Maybe us die-hard fans are the only ones that care.

Heh, as I was driving home from Target... probably faster than usual, speed-limit breaking, even, might I add... I was thinking about how awesome the Knuckles comic was.  ...And how if I was going to be anybody's bitch... like, if I was going to have any sugardaddies, who'd it be? Frickin Pat Spaziante or Manny Galan, dude.  Alot of girls go for older men who're rich. I go for men who have badass artistic talent.  I'd totally let 'em have their way with me, too.

HA, like that'd happen, though. Just speculation.  Pat Spaz is my Hugh Heffner.  That image I linked to, by the way-- arguably the best piece of artwork in the comic's entire career.  So well drawn, so well colored, so moving, and it speaks volumes.  It makes my brain tingle.

4. Who was the last person you called?

5. Who was the last person to call you?

6. Do you prefer to call or text?
Depends on the person and if I'm used to calling them or not.

14. Do you prefer shoes, socks, or bare feet?
Uh... shoes when it's not rediculously hot, socks when it's cold, and bare feet when it's hot.

Cookies & Cream.

18. What is your favorite dessert?

ROFL... well, um... less than one. I drink a lot of skim milk and Crystal Lite, if we have some.

25. Do you know how to play poker?

30. Have you ever been in an ambulance?

31. Do you prefer an ocean or a pool?
Pool. I can't stand the smell of the ocean, which you'd think I'd have gotten used to by now, considering I've lived in So. Cal my entire conscious life.

32. Do you prefer a window seat or an aisle seat?

33. Do you know how to drive a stick shift?
Um... well, no. I know how it works, does that count?

Um... considering Mike is usually the one who calls me the most, it's Clocks.  But my default ringer is some random tone that came with my phone.

Well... from when I was younger.  I used to wear big tee-shirts, so a lot of them still fit. If you consider being baggy as hell "fitting."

42. What is the color of your bedroom walls?

43. Do you shut off the water when you brush your teeth?
Yeah. Why leave it running? If you're washing your hands, I can see why you'd want to leave it on (to save all the soapy crap from seeping over the handles), but while brushing your teeth? You've got a spare hand. Use it!

44. Do you think Myspace is harmful?
WTH? Harmful? No, not really. Screwed up? Yes.

45. Do you like overly sensitive People?
Depends on how they act when they're offended.

Oops, the end.

Okay, if I get a Wii... how much should I expect to spend to make it usable?  I want to get Sonic atSR.  Am I going to need to spend an extra hundred on a memory card or something? If I wanna have Wii friends, does that require some sort of adapter, etc.

Cuz I've got a $150 gift card to Fry's that I want to use, but I only have a limited budget thereafter.

The fact that Pokemon, NiGHTS' sequel (OH GOD FINALLY), the better Next-Gen Sonic game (according to user reviews), and Smash Bros. are all going on the Wii pushed me to cave.  Though I am tempted to instead get a DS with Pearl, except that I hardly ever play portable game consoles.

Heh, and it should be noted that while we were tapping our feet through the commercials and previews, I explained to him my disgust with the Harry Potter franchise and fandom (parts of it, anyway-- those of you on my FList are cool).  He actually put Ron/Hermione in a light that made sense to me.  'Course, it didn't change how I felt about it, but at least it seems clearer to me now.  I'll still never support a 'ship where the two characters bicker and belittle each other so much.  That's not what my idea of love is at all.  And that's how I see R/Hr, sexual tension or not.

Depression is "related" to loneliness, shyness is "related" to loneliness, depression is "related" to shyness, and all three are linked, which means if one goes up, the others are most likely going to go up, too.  By "up," I mean like more depressed, more lonely, that sorta thing.

EDIT: Thank you SOOOO much, guys! I had just enough surveys done in time today. Your effort is greatly appreciated, and I'd give you all hugs if I knew who half of you are, lol! You're still welcome to take this. I just needed 15 by 10 o'clock today.

I've been helping Mike with a platformer game he has to make for one of his classes as of late.  He does the coding, I do the character animations.  I want to make some of the world graphics, too, but I gotta get those from him first.

The character I decided upon is a lavender-blue cheetah chick, lol, whom Mike thinks is excessively girly.  Now, I can't animate on my own worth crap, so I shamelessly used poses of Emerl in Sonic Battle for the bases.  But... meh.  I consider it good practice.

They look better in the game, like when you really jump 'n stuff, but here's an animation of all the poses I've done so far.

Anybody got a name for this chick?
lunabuna: (starfox - girls? videogames? yarite)

Can anybody recommend to me a really fun strategy game that can tear me away from FFT?  Good god, it's so rediculously addicting! I don't even want to play WoW!

Mike's been playing Ogre Battle 64, but if you all have any recs, I'd like to look into other games, too.

Oh my god, so many of my old classmates are on MySpace and Facebook... and... god...

I miss them so much, but because I was a shy little fruitcake in grade school, I'm pretty sure they aren't interested in what I'm doing, so I'm not messenging them or anything like I want to.  Yay, poor self image! *thumbs up*

Heh, this asian girl that I spent 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade with got accepted to Yale and graduated, and now she's in grad school.  She's always been wicked smart, and her essay entered into a county-wide contest on something-or-other won my 8th grade class an overnight "experience" on the Star of India in San Diego, which was paranoia galore for me, but also a huge bonding experience for the people I did it with... who also probably didn't notice I was there, but whatever.  I feel honored to have shared a GATE program with her, lol, even though I'm apparently not nearly as smart as she is.

...God, and so many of them are married and/or have children.  People MY age!  And it's not like they're being irresponsible, either, because we're... actually OLD enough to responsibly get married and have children.  I totally don't feel that old.  ... Oh god, I'm almost 24.  When I hit 24, I'm going to start crying about how I'm getting old and can't enjoy my post-21 era because I'm such a wimp.

...ROFL, so I try to convince myself that I wasn't that big a nerd in high school, but then I notice what kind of music I listen to.

...Aaaaand I was going to also try and convince myself that while I'm not the brightest bulb in the package, I do have some art talent that alot of peeps at Yale probably don't have.  To do so, I was going to post a picture I'm currently working on.  ........And then I can't because my server's not responding. *thumbs up*

lunabuna: (wolf's rain - what.. this? uh.. er... no)
Wolf's Rain has got to have the must gut-wrenching ending out of any TV show or OVA I've ever seen in my entire life.

EDIT: I felt I needed more of a commentary.

Well, as I told Mike after I watched the first 5 episodes (which he got me for Christmas <3)... they need a girl wolf. But I liked it up until that point and while it lagged a bit getting into the storyline at first, I enjoyed the series until the end. Sort of. I was bawling through episode 27 onward.

Hige and Blue are too cute. <3

I really couldn't stand Tsume's attitude nor his outfit (bleh, buttcrack FTL), but he redeemed himself at the end, in my eyes, by showing so much compassion. I couldn't understand Kiba's fascination with Cheza at first, either. But ToboƩ was SO. CUTE. Still... Hige comes in first on my favorites list because he's a hopeless romantic.

The ending leaves a lot open for interpretation, so I get to mull over what really happened. Woot.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, take a few hours out of your day and watch some episodes off YouTube. Its setting is pretty depressing, but it has a good story and message to it.

I'll bet you this series spawned a bunch of Mary Sue fan characters. "LAWL LIEK MY CHARA LOOKS HYUUMAN BUT IS RLY A WOLF ISNT IT KEWL??"

Apparently Vanessa has a cat and it had kittens.

Dear god, it's contageous! The irresponsible baby-making! Sterilize yourselves before it's too late! :(

1 .... WTF, TAILS' DAD???

2. Mighty & Ray = SO CUTE.

3. Potto + Crazy = awesome touch. If I wrote a comic, I'd definitely throw in my characters for cameos, too.

4. Sally's Trainees cameos win.

5. "Keep our flower girl entertained until the ceremony!"
"SONIC! <3 <3 :D"
"AMY?! D:"

6. Julie-Su: *dress* DO NOT WANT. X( HATE PRETTY.
Knux: Must... resist... urge to grope... ;3

7. Not some of Tracey's best work, but group pictures are tough anyway, so it's understandable.

8. Oh dear god Espio NOOOOOOOOO!

9. Fiona's a jerk but Tails still has the hots for her. [ profile] scribbleschan, there's still hope!  It's not getting brushed under the carpet! Woot! I so often see the whole "see look it's over so we won't ever bring it up again" approach in writing that I thought this'd be just another one of those times.

10. ... rofl, I so wanna scan that page where Tails is all ":D What'd you mean by that, dad?" and his dad's all " :) Nuthin." and replace the text with the respective dialogue: "WTF DAD" and "LOLOLOL!!!!111"

I found this quite amusing!

Quantas Airlines Checklist:

After every flight, pilots complete a gripe sheet which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The form is a piece of paper that the pilot completes and then the mechanics read and correct the problem. They then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor.

Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems, submitted by QANTAS pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident.

S = The solution and action taken by the mechanics.

Wow, my emotions are off the charts today. First totally hard-working and serious, then rediculously depressed, then pukeworthy amorous.  Maybe it's the prozac kicking in after four days of not taking it.  Horrible, horrible cramps will tend to make a person forget that sort of stuff.

Oh, I started on the 9th (monday) this month. I still gotta reference my period dates better and see if I notice a pattern.

Final Fantasy Tactics has been owning my soul since last weekend.  My main character's name is Mike (ninja/monk) and his priest/mediator buddy is Stephanie, mwahaha... but I needed more chars, so I brought in chars that I named after his sister (wizard/oracle) and my brother (samurai/ninja).  Still, not enough... so I named my fifth and sixth guys after Mike's best friend (bard/summoner) and [ profile] coralyoshi (geomancer/chemist).  Now my team is INVEENCIBLE!

I want a Wii.

Social anxiety can bite me.
