When I looked through Just For You on iTMS and all I saw was The Cheetah Girls, I just had to make this:

It's been a while since I've posted a quiz thing. Here we go.


Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

I only got four hours of sleep last night. Sleep deprivation does weird things to me. Most of it is not good. The interesting thing though, which I found out today, is that I'm a lot more talkative when I'm sleep deprived. I think it's because the analytical part of my brain shuts down, so things don't get edited. The downside is that I don't feel like doing anything.

My Day

Today was my last day of working at the library. My coworkers threw a surprise pizza lunch party thing. They gave me a card with all their farewells in it. You can see my other journal to see which one was most important to me. :)

I just registered for my classes next quarter. Aaachk, school's starting again. At least I get to start later than most people, and I'll get to get away from my parents. They're starting to get on my nerves now. My living situation has the potential to become... uncomfortable (for details see my other journal), but I'm optimistic that it won't be that bad. (Or at least that's what I tell people.)

So that's all.

My Summer Vacation

This entry has been edited. For the unedited version see/friend my other journal. If you don't know what that is the edited parts aren't for you anyway. XP

I'm back from the family vacation. Now I'm going to tell you all about it in the fastest way possible.

The first day we drove to Crescent City and stayed at the Lighthouse Inn. The next day we took a tour of the Oregon Caves then drove to Portland and stayed at University Place. That night we met up with my sister and had dinner at the Kennedy School. We went back to the hotel but I was disappointed that I didn't get to spend enough time with my sister or around the city. The next morning we went to Powell's Bookstore and up to Pittock Mansion where there was a great view of the whole city. Last we went to a 3D Art Museum where we saw a great 3D presentation about Ellis Island. Next we drove to Seattle and stayed at the Warwick. My mom and I went up to the Space Needle and took a picture of Seattle at sunset. My dad didn't want to go up because he's very afraid of heights. The next day we left for Victoria on the Victoria Clipper. We took a tour of Victoria on an old English double-decker bus which the annoying tour guide called the "pride of the fleet." In the middle of the tour we stopped for two hours in Butchart Gardens. It was beautiful. We went to our hotel, the Executive House, then my dad and I went to see Miniature World which was very interesting. I love Victoria. It's a beautiful city. Canada is certainly cleaner than the U.S. I saw this T-shirt in a window in a store next to our hotel that says "Canada, eh!" that I really liked but I didn't have the assertiveness to ask for. The next day we saw the Royal BC Museum where we played an amusing round of miniature golf and even saw a Commodore PET in one of the exhibits! Then we left for Vancouver and stayed at the Coast Plaza hotel, which is in a very weird neighborhood for a fancy hotel. At this point the whole thing fell apart. We couldn't get a hotel in Seattle for the next night, so in order to make it there in time to be able to get to our car we had to get on the bus to Seattle at 3:00 the next day. The tour of Vancouver was four hours, so we didn't have any time to do anything after that. I really wanted to take the tour and go to the aquarium and find that T-shirt, but it could not be done, which really sucked. The next morning we took the tour of Vancouver, which was very cool. The bus had four stops during the tour. On the first stop we went into the tallest building in Vancouver and my mom and I took the elevator to the top. My dad stayed at the bottom floor and... found the T-shirt for me! After the tour we took the bus back to Seattle then took the car back to Portland where we stayed at University Place again. The next morning we met up with my sister again for lunch at some Thai food place. On our way out of Portland I gave my sister a big hug. I don't know what it is, but Portland makes me smile. I love that city. I just wish I could have someone who really has been there a long time to show me what it's really like. We stopped at Yreka and stayed at the Best Western, which only had a suite available for us. It had a living area and a bathroom and private bedrooms with their own TVs and everything! It was very neat. It was the same amount of money we were spending other places though. This morning we came all the way home.

Whew.

The Last Year in 30 Seconds

I haven't updated this one in the longest time. Does anybody actually read this? Anyway. I know it must seem like I've disappeared off the planet completely, but I haven't. I've actually been journaling quite regularly, but in a different journal few of you know about. A lot has changed.

So here's the past year in 30 seconds. Went to college. Had a blast the first week. Didn't the rest of the time. Met very few people. Did well. Locked myself out of my apartment once. Completely cut off communication with TB. Took an art class. Got sick from expired butter. Put a couple names on a list of teachers that annoy the hell out of me. Started writing a bunch. Realized how much Java really sucks. Got tired, low on energy, lonely, and depressed. Went to therapy (though for another reason which I will go into later for a select few people). Kept myself sane. Took a psychology class which I really liked except I was so distracted I ended up with a C. Helped a woman named Lori with her wireless network. Regained my spirituality. Moved out of my crappy apartment. Made arrangements for a nicer apartment next year. Fell victim to an email scam where someone sent me $3800 in counterfeit money orders expecting me to cash them. Moved back home for the summer. More therapy. Started a job at the community college library where my mom works. Took a class in AutoCAD which I mastered in three days. Everybody got an A in that class. Now I'm all a mess.

I don't have anything more to say for the general audience. There will be another post for a few select people I feel I can trust. And believe me, it's a doozy. :D

There are signs up around campus saying things like "Liberals = Hypocrites" and "Liberals = Sellouts" and "Say No to Organic." Yesterday there was this guy outside the UU with a sign saying "You make me sick" with a list of different groups of people. I liked it when I saw "Racists." I was amused when I saw "Roman Catholics." But then I saw "Computer Freaks," "Effeminate Culture," and "Rebellious Women."

I hate this world.

OK, this is really stupid. A new law called the Intellectual Property Privacy Act will make it illegal to possess copyrighted material or any means to duplicate it. So basically everybody with an Internet connection, a CD burner, an iPod, etc. is screwed. Essentially it completely nullifies the Fair Use clause. And that's not fair.

There's also another law out that will grant corporations more control over the Internet - so they can control what users will be able to access. So the Internet is no longer neutral. There's a petition and more information here: http://www.civic.moveon.org/save_the_internet/

I HAVE LOST FAITH IN AMERICA. Maybe I'll move to Canada.

It's been quite a long time since I've updated this. I thought I was just really busy, and had no time. Thing is a lot of the time I was doing useless crap, distracting myself. I'm waist-deep in my own psychological issues. It wasn't until recently that I realized... I'm not happy. I'm going to take steps to resolve this...
