Seriously, anyone at all? You don't even have to hang out with me or anything. You could sit in the living room and watch TV or study for finals, let me make you something to eat and just chill. I just want someone else to be in the house with me. For some reason I think that would help me focus enough to study, which is strange because usually I study better when I'm by myself.

Crap. I just realized my end-of-year consultation with my scary English prof is tomorrow; I thought it was on Wendsday.

Maybe I'll go roller blading today. I don't think I've been getting enough excersize, maybe that's why I've been feeling so anxious.
girlnamedxena: (Jarethbah)
Yeah, so, my brother does theoretically live here, but I haven't really seen him at all. And I was really bored today so I called Sade and we chatted for probably an hour but all sorts of stuff.

But yeah, this whole being alone thing kinda rocked at the beginning but now I'm just lonely :(. I think it was better last summer when I was at my aunt's on my own for a while, but then again I was working during the day. Oh well, Janine is coming over tomorrow and I have to study, do dishes and I think I'll make a cheesecake.

But if anyone wants to call me up and chat that'd be cool.

So, it's official. Janine and I are going on a double bowling date with my dad and his girlfriend. The date has yet to be determined. The conversation went like this

Me: remember how you suggested we go on a double date?

dad: I thought you knew I was joking

Me: how does bowling sound?

Ah, good old dad. It turns out my mom was right about some things- I have been neglecting him lately, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense as he's much less likely to yell at me than she is. I'm pretty sure he's not secretly (or not so secretly) grossed out by me.

Anyway, that is entirely too much angsty-teenager-I-hate-my-mom ramblings. Because I don't. I'm not exactly thrilled about her views or the way she presented them, but it's her opinion and she's entitled to it. I'll probably be done school in about two years and then I can move out. Maybe if I start working more and save up I can leave earlier than that, we'll see.

I've got a midterm in Anthro, but at the moment I'm having a lot of trouble making myself care. I just had a really nice afternoon with Janine and all I really want to do is sit around and think about that, meanwhile the real world is like 'hey! Get off your ass before you fail!' My story is also due in less than a week, but I just figured out I can probably cut the first 10-12 pages and the story is essentially the same, so that gets rid of the OMG it's 10 pages too long! thing. I just need to rewrite and add a bit more worldbuilding and voila! A story. It's pretty crappy, though. But if I'm gonna be writing crap and making other people read it, it might as well be short. No point in prolonging the suffering and all that. Plus it hopefully won't take as long to rewrite.

I'm finished sewing the lining and outside of my new top, but it doesn't really fit properly so I'll have to fight with it later. Also need to decide how I'm going to fasten it. I don't think it's loose enough to just pull over my head, though it would be nice if it were. Also gotta do the sleeves. The skirt that goes with it will be a piece of cake, though. Just need to finish the ends and it'll be a draw-string waiste. If I don't screw up I can probably finish it in an hour or two. Then I have to decide what to do with the rest of my fabric.

Anyway, life is feeling generally ok.

girlnamedxena: (oops)
Oh, Tyra Banks... you don't leave a single rock unturned, do you?
I have been without internet for THREE DAYS people! While I was at home I had nothing to do because there was no internet so I cleaned! OMG! I can actually seem y desk now. Not that it helps me much since I'm back at my aunt's.
And SBP has updated but I haven't had time to read it yet.
What else... I still suck at unicycling.
Next week is still exciting.
My mood ring is purple.
I got a new curling iron and learned how to do rolls (yay!) but my hair still won't hold a curl when it's not all pinned and covered in hair spray and stuff :( I should go make supper. Mmmm. Frozen pizza.
girlnamedxena: (kissme)
And still functioning! Yesterday I:
- went shopping with Sade
- Made supper, cookies and daqueries, all of which turned out even though I didn't really follow any recipes.
- Watched Benny and Joon
- Finished my dress
And today (so far) I:
- cut out the pieces for my bolero
- started sewing it together
- checked stuff for school 
- checked the ConVersion webpage

And concerning Con- OMG I wanna go! I'm actually thinking about trying to get Saturday and Sunday off so I can go. For full details go here. But how can I go to work when there are cool things to do and see like:
- Alternate history
- "It was a dark and stormy night" Bedtime stories by IFWA
- star wars costuming
- building a lightsaber
- lightsaber demo
- vintage radio plays 
- genetics of X-men
- film making from scratch
- IFWA short story contest
- Open Filk
- Costume contest
- slave auction
- dance
- Joss Weedon is my Master Now
- Severus Snape: Hero or Villain? (!!!!!!!)
- Farscape II: Leather pants
- End of the world I: Plagues
- End of the world II: I'm not dead yet
- Calgary furry fandom: building a fur suit
- Tapestry, Tapestry, Eunuch: when description goes too far
- Harry Potter Jeporday

OH MY GOD! I have to go. Will inquire about getting needed days off tomorrow. Or, like, now. I have the phone list. 
AHHHHH! *freaks out* And that stuff isn't even half of what's being offered. And if I get off my ass and buy a pass now it's only $35!
Excuse me while I go call Shanna and beg her to work for me.

EDIT: OMG there's a student discount! It's only $25 *dies* I'm definitely not working that weekend.
girlnamedxena: (oops)
I cooked something. Without a recipe. And it still turned out and tasted kinda good! I rock! I also think my cousin is a total dag and meanie. He doesn't even know where the can opener is in his own freaking house. I mean, fine, I don't know how to use a dishwasher but that's because I don't have one, you dork. You, on the other hand, have this wierd can opener that I can't figure out and you claim not to know how. What the hell do you eat when no one's around to cook for you?
That said, I'm soooooo tired. Blech.
Oh! But good news! The talent show has been cancelled. I'm so relieved. You have no idea.
And Sade and I are going shopping in Marda Loop tomorrow. I want to go somewhere cool but Kensington is too far away. Plus while I'm in Marda Loop I can drop by Casablanca video and see if they have a copy of Top of the Food Chain. I wonder if they'd let me buy it if they did? That would be so the awesome.
Anyway, HDEC campout is (hopefully) on the night of August 8th. 
I wanna sleep. But what'll actually end up happening is me going on Youtube and getting addicted to some other foreign tv series. Because I'm all caught up with Sugarrush now so I need to have something to do while I'm waiting for new episodes to come out.
