Obligatory Welcome Post!

These things just have to be done :)

Dreamwidth is offering a free paid account for a month to those who are participating in NaNo this year, so I figured I'd give it try!

Writer's Block: Childhood Firsts

[Error: unknown template qotd]As much as I try to convince my parents it was actually "Horsey", they maintain that my first word was "Hockey." I'm so Canadian, and proud of it.

But speaking of being canadian, and my current exile in the US, I'm going to be missing Canada day tomorrow. This is the second time in a row, as I missed it last year when we went house hunting. This year, I'm gonna be at Science camp. So I'll celebrate one of my favorite holidays by studying proteins. Fun stuff.

But seriously. Canada day at the embassy would have been so awesome. Sometimes, I REALLY hate my life XD.

Back from the dead... again.

Um, hi. Haven't posted in awhile, most likely because life has tried it's best to drown me in an onslaught of constant homework and a variety of after school activities that have eaten up the remaining of my spare time.
However, I have come back to say that I HAVE A LIFE AGAIN!!!!!

Or, as much of a life as had before, at least. So I suppose that I could give a brief summary of what has been going on in my life as of late.

First and foremost, I have been busy with a school production that recently ended last weekend. It's an amazingly unique musical extravaganza that my school has put on every year since 1989. When I say that it's unique, I mean that it's not a musical or a individual showcase, but more like a rock concert. Organized by the choral department, a variety of popular songs are performed by students, along with backup singers and dancers as if it were a real professional show. The show is called Blast to the Past, as it usually incorporates some older pop and rocks songs that are still well-known today. This years theme was Instant Replay, as the show was celebrating their 20th anniversary. Obviously, this was my first experience with the show, so I really didn't know what to expect. All in all, it was quite a lot of work, but extremely fun in the end.

I'm just sorry that I can't explain it better. But it's really hard to describe Blast in all it's glory with just words, the actual experience itself is fairly mind blowing, and even more so when you know that you're a part of it. Now that it's over, I can't wait until next year!!!

Anyways, to go one with the last few months of my life... I want to Hawaii!!

Uh, yeah. However, since that entire experience would need a whole post to itself, I might as well not even try. I'll just say that it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

Now that Blast is over, I finally have some time to ride my horse again. For the last two weeks before that show opened, we were having all-night rehearsals from the end of school to 8 O'clock at night. As a result, i fell behind in my homework as well...

So while I'm sad that Blast is over, I'm relieved as well. I now have a whole bunch of spare time that I took for granted before, but seems like a luxury to me now. Sort of like waking up from a long sleep. What's even more disturbing is the fact that school will be over soon. I write my AP French exam on Monday (study study study!!) and my AP English one about a week after that. After that, I just need to pass my final exams, write my SAT in June and then... HELLO SUMMER!

Anyways, considering I have a riding lesson tomorrow and need to get some studying done, I shall leave you now and hopefully you'll hear from me again soon! XD

In your FACE, Videogame!!!

I don't really know how, but somehow I lost 20 years in two days. According to Wii Fit, I am now 16. Go figure. All in all, this only proves my skepticism.

Anyways, I have a crapload of homework to do, two essays to write and an imaginary friend to entertain. I'm out.

Writer's Block: More Island Time

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Heh, this is more like it, though just 5 books would get a little boring after awhile. Could I bring a Kindle instead? ^_^ It doesn't need batteries, it's solar powered!!

Ahem. So assuming that I can't bring a Kindle I would bring:

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

HP and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling

The Iliad by Homer (I haven't read all of this yet, but I figure I should bring at least one book I haven't read)

Catch-22 by Someone whose name I forget

and... wait, that's it right?

And no, I am NOT BRINGING ANY LOTR!!! Surprisingly enough, I haven't read any of them yet, so rather then just bring one and torture myself for the rest of my life wondering what happens in the other two books, or bring all three of them and only have room for two other books, I shall just scrap them altogether. Sorry. XD

~Urban

EDIT: I possible, I might trade one of my first choices for the Complete Works of Shakespeare because I'm a nerd in love with English literature and all that good stuff. XD

I'm middle aged... >_>

Played Wii Fit for the first time yesterday. Still kinda skeptical about how much it can actually get me more in shape, but according to it's calculations I have the body of a 36 year old. Thats very comforting. T_T

Ha. Ha.

Ummm, can I just trade in the DVDs and bring extra books? ^_^

...but I guess I'd bring my RENT movie and Doctor Who. And The Last Unicorn. And Rurouni Kenshin.

Going off topic for a bit here, but we get a two-hour delay from school tomorrow ^_^ That makes me very very happy.

You have GOT to be fucking kidding me.

It's official. My mother is an idiot.

Guess what happened yesterday as my mom tried to "clean out the computer" to make more space?

EVERYTHING is now deleted. Every. Single. Thing.

All my stories, my pictures, my homework, my icons, my movies, my bookmarks, my LIFE is now gone.

Strangely enough, the iTunes library didn't get deleted too. Which I can only say is VERY fortunate for my mom because if she had deleted all of my music on top of everything else, she would have left our home in a body bag.

And what pisses me off the most is that our computer is so old that even with everything all gone it probably won't work much better than before -- it's OUTDATED. Mom, if you're determined to buy only Macs, you gotta keep up with the technology. Our computer is ANCIENT. Apple is a company that depends on people buying their latest stuff; if the old stuff kept working they wouldn't make any profit. Jump on the bandwagon and BUY BUY BUY!!

My life no longer has any meaning.

Writer's Block: Half a Glass

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I'd like to say that I'm a realist, but if I want to be honest I guess I should say I'm a little bit of all three. I try to look at things the way they really are, and not try to convince myself that the things that might be are true. However, in some cases this might come out as slightly pessimistic, only because I'm not concerned with the brighter side of the picture or any "silver lining," I concentrate on what really happened, and the options that are really there. But when it somes to people, I'm an optimist in the way that I'm always more ready to believe the better of a person rather than the worst. I try not to stereotype people; I'm fully aware that everyone is their own person and that most people aren't intentionally mean... thats why I have such a hard time understanding when someone goes out of their way to hurt someone else.

But if you were to ask me if a glass was half empty or half full... well, I would say that it depends on what was in the glass in the first place.

Eheh.

How ironic!! XD I've been saying this to myself for awhile now... haha... Call me weird but I would fall completely for japanese singer Ayumi Hamasaki. Just watch some of her performances live and you will understand. :D

Either that or Morena Baccarin, who plays Inara in Firefly.

Yay it's snowing!!! ...wait, you mean school's CLOSED??

Haha, thank you, snow-phobic Maryland!! I laugh at you!!

Apparently, due to and "emergency weather situation" school has been canceled. WHUT.

There can't even be an inch of snow on the ground. These people scare me sometimes. Seriously. It's kind of sad.

Anyways, considering that it's 7:00 AM, I'm going back to bed to catch up on some much needed sleep...

Ohhhh yeah.

I have found the HOTTEST guy in the universe in a British teenage drama. Uh huh, skins. The show is, in and of itself, pure awesomeness, but Maxxie is by the far the most amazingly good looking person I have ever seen in my life. Honestly, the fact that he's gay in the show only makes him more adorable. ^_^

He is straight in real life, though. LIFE IS GOOD.

"Live everyday like it's your last."

I have never been very fond of this expression, mostly because I would never get anything done if I took this advice to heart.

Case in point: If today was, hypothetically speaking, my last day on earth, WOULD I WASTE IT STUDYING FOR MY EXAMS? No, I would not. I would be with my friends, riding my horse, and doing stuff that I actually enjoy, like:

- Eating all I want. And then some.
- Go on a major shopping spree and max out my credit card, specifically buying the most expensive and crazy clothing that I can find.
- Or I could donate all my money to some obscure charity.
- Buy a motorbike and see how fast I could go.
- Skip over to White House and sing "O Canada" at the top of my lungs.
- Burn down a building.
- Go skydiving. I've always wanted to do that.

The best part of this ideal situation: I would not have to study because I would be dead on the day of my exams. So why study?

How easy life would be. XD And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why this DOES NOT WORK in real life.

Well, this is a first.

Sure, they might be a bit late, but I think I might actually have some New Year Resolutions for this year. Shocking, really.

Anyways, here they are:

1) ACTUALLY FINISH SOMETHING THAT I WRITE. It bugs me so much when I quit a story.

2) I didn't put this one first to avoid the potential cliché, but I guess it can't be avoided. I need to lose weight. At least 20 pounds, preferably 30, if I can. I'm gonna try to eat healthier to start off, and if I ever get any more money into my account maybe I'll order some of those free trial weight loss thingies that you find all over the Net.

3) Start playing guitar again. I haven't even touched the damn thing since we moved in July. I'm WAY overdue. This time, I'm actually gonna make an effort and really try to play well. Whenever I... uh, get around to it. :D

4) Be nicer to Khas. Re-read my multitude of equitation books and see if I can find any tips to improve his groundwork. Seriously, the horse hates my guts. I want to try and change that. This is going to be the first time that I've actually been able to decide for myself what I want to do when we ride, so I want to use this opportunity to improve our relationship and whatnot.

5) Er... that's it I guess. I might come up with a few more later.

My first exam is tomorrow... XD I guess I better go study soon...
