Hi! My name is Awesome, and I'm addicted to Staples...

Oh hell. I've really let my blog go. Haha!

Well truthfully, I didn't mean to. I've actually been thinking about what I want to blog on next, but truthfully, I have not had a chance to actually do it. I've just been so busy! I had to work on a 15 page play for my playwriting class and a five page essay on the "Epic of Gilgamesh" as a metaphor for psychological maturation for my Myth and Lit class. I've also had to read an insane amount of literature for my World Lit class. Needless to say, it was all horrible! I've been so stressed!

But right now, I'm taking a break and relaxing before continuing my Gilgamesh essay (which I must also edit and turn in tomorrow, late). I've also have to come up with research on Celtic Mythology for my 10 page research paper that's due a day before my birthday. : (

So break it is. Lol!

I got back my essay on Euripides' The Medea about a week or two ago. I was so pissed!! And it wasn't because of my grade, no I got an A. I was so angry because my teacher dared to question my ethics!! She wrote: "This is a good paper and a good analyzation of character motivation. I hope it is all your work."

She wrote that. I almost started shouting then and there. I'm not even fucking kidding. I would've started screaming uncontrollably and crazily until she apologized profusely. But I controlled myself and have not even mentioned it, since I still think I'll start yelling. That, and she's probably forgotten about it, anyway.

On other news, I saw the first part of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" last weekend. It was epic! I originally had my doubts, seeing as I have not seen anything after Chamber of Secrets for the sole reason that the movies ruined "Prisoner of Azkaban" for me. I really do not remember why, but I remember! Still, regardless, I completely recommend the new movie. They work everything in very nicely, and they skip very little, as far as I know. The last time I read the book was when it came out in '08 I believe, so if they did skip something, I don't remember it.

Anywho, since I'm reviving this previously dead post, I'll let you know. Haha! It is now Nov 25 at 8:54 pm.

I have realized that I have a problem. A very serious problem. . .

. . . I'm addicted to Staples.

I'm not even fucking kidding. Every time I go there I have to buy something, whether it be a new plastic file-keeping contraption, printer paper, binder or Post-Its, I spend money there!! It's becoming a huge problem.

I'm buying random shit I don't need, with money I should not be spending on shit I don't need, and I'm reaching the point where I might start drowning in post its. I could probably take a picture of myself covered in Post-Its, but hmm....

I might actually do it! You know, to justify my Post-It runs to Staples every other day. . . Hmmm. . . I have to admit, it's a titillating idea. . .

On other news, I had Midterm: The Sequel for my World Literature class- and it was horrible! I had to write two in-class essays: one on the difference between male-voiced literature and Japanese, female-voiced literature and another on the similarities between the Bible and the Qur'an. I thought the prompt on the female-voiced literature would've been easier, but no. It was a fucking drag. I couldn't write well at all and the fucking prompt was so damned confusing that I got lost and next thing I knew it, it was twenty minutes to 3 and I only had thirty minutes left.

Even less, when the prof decided to cut the class ten minutes without informing us. She just told us "you've gone over two minutes" when it was only 3. We still had another ten minutes left of class time, which I informed her of (nicely of course!), and she graciously gave us two more minutes to finish writing.

Needless to say, I was not happy. But, despite popular belief, I did not yell, insult or murder. I held my tongue and finish my essay on religious scripture, which is meant to be horrible regardless. Bleh.

Thankfully, I have my two-day Turkey Day break, for which I am forever grateful. I've needed this- I plan to sit, watch movies, facebook/youtube, and just generally veg. In the evening, I'm probably going with family for food, which is usually a nice event- I don't have to yell at my mom's side of the family. Hahahaha!

Hopefully I can do black Friday! I have my eye on a new pair of Doc Martens, some fourteen hole-rs. It would be epic if I can find them on sale (but very unlikely), so I'm better off saving off for Christmas. Haha! Maybe I can get them for my birthday. . .

What is everyone else (hopefully I'm not writing for no reason, lol) doing for Thanksgiving?

Okay, that's my life so far. I'll try not to lag next time! Haha!

Fav New Band of the Month!

Today, after waking up, eating grapes, getting dressed and inhaling a sandwich, I moseyed over to Radio Shack to purchase an iTunes card- something I've been meaning to do since I came into the money I have now. I bought a fifteen dollar card. I had originally planned a twenty-five dollar, but I vetoed in exchange of not buying too much music, something which is now regretted.

I found a shitload of music I wanted to buy a keep and cherish forever and ever and ever and ever and ever!!

Woah. Make that three evers.

Anyway, I redeemed the card and headed to the reason I originally bought the card- Lady Gaga remixes. : )

So I bought a whole Extended Play of those (which are fucking awesome, despite the dumb remarks on iTunes) and decided to surf the store a bit. I went over to the "Complete my Album" link on the main menu, and somehow (don't really know how, exactly) I ended up on the page for a '06 album by the name of "Kick". I listened to the 30 second previews, and I loved them! White Rose Movement absolutely became my new favorite band! Sadly, they are no longer together, but I'm waiting on the new album, which they stated they would release anyway, so yeah!! Haha!

I'm planning to buy another iTunes card sometime this week (most likely tomorrow) in order to buy the whole album.

After I finished squealing like a schoolgirl at the prospect of the awesome new/old band, I searched for CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy) in order to buy a few new songs from one of my already-favorite bands ("Meeting Paris Hilton" and "Alala") and to generally surf. I want to complete a Mindless Self-Indulgence album...

Right now I just bought a White Rose Movement Extended Play, which I love! Seriously, people check out this band!! You must! You may not like it, but I'd rather have one of you like it out of fifty, then not hearing it at all! : )

That's it for now!

Comment! Plz? Hahahahahaha! : P

Shiny New Shoes

Today I went to the mall. : )

Specifically, I went to Lakewood mall, which is the best fucking mall, ever!

Haha! No joke, I freaking love that mall. I came into a good amount of money yesterday, and decided to buy some new shoes. Mainly because the shoes I have suck (except for my Docs, which I still love), and because really, why not but more stuff?

Today was Veterans' Day, for those of you who aren't in the US, so I had the day off from college- no class! I was originally going to bus it to the Old Pasadena area to do some shopping. Possibly with a friend, but most likely by myself. But truthfully, I did not feel like going to Pasadena (I hate shopping by myself) and I had an inkling to visit the Lakewood mall (I had never been there), I asked Vicki to show me how to get there. She wanted to make a payment on something she had bought on layaway, and I wanted new shoes, it was the perfect timing! Lol

I met her at Starbucks, and after munching on one of their fruit and cheese snack plates (I fucking love those things!), we walked to the bus stop. We had to take two different buses. We ended up actually getting there like around 2 pm, and we went directly to the ATM machine. After she bought some cookies (from which I, of course, freeloaded), we began our shopping excursion.

I steered us toward Anchor Blue, and I found the black and grey checkered flannel shirt I bought. After trying it on, regulating on the salesperson about the price (overcharging- how rude!), and trying on some hats, I bought it. I really wanted a hat (badly), but me and that hat just were not meant to be. : /

But it's okay.

After that, we went to a shoe store, Vicki bought boots. We went to Wet Seal (Why does that sound like animal porn to me? Just saying...), and Vicki bought a shirt. We went to Borders, I bought a couple of books. After that we munched on some pizza and fries at the two-story food court! I fucking love that mall! Haha!

Anyway, after the munching, we went to Hot Topic, where we debated the benefit of her buying poof-y punker-rocker skirts, versus me buying a Lady Gaga wrist band or a green wristband, when all I really wanted was a Shane Dawson t-shirt, which I never really found. Hot Topic was a weird moment. We then moseyed over to Spencer's (not for the sex toys you pervs!), and we looked at the t-shirts and accessories. I bought a bracelet for like 6 bucks, which I totally liked! Lol! Which is why, y'know, I bought it.

After that, we realized we only had like thirty minutes left, so we rushed to Journeys in order to buy my shoes. I ended up buying a pair of Converse, the brand which I have not owned for like years! Last time it was, I think, 7th grade? When I had this pair of teal-blue ones that I really, really liked. I remember trying to stuff them... oh damn, I was so stupid back then. Hahaha!

After that, I bought cookies, we rushed to the bus stop and caught the first bus. The second bus, we had to wait forever for. And it's getting cold here in Cali! Hahahaha! I ended up getting home like at 6 or 7.

Today was fucking awesome. : )

Cumulative Review (of Awesomeness!)

I know I haven't blogged in awhile- I've just been so busy! Today, I had an awesome opportunity to do so, so here I am. : )

This past weekend was great! A whole bunch of us stayed over at a friend's house, and watched movies the whole fucking night- I even made them watch "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", which I bought a few days ago on Amazon. I might have traumatized my friend's little brother, but whatev. Hahaha!

Thanks for having us over Eskiho!! : D

I sadly did not do anything for Halloween. Well at least on the day of Halloween. I was too busy studying for my midterm which was scheduled for November 1st. I wanted to go to the West Hollywood parade, since it was going to Rocky Horror themed and they were going to do a syndicated Time Warp dance! But sadly, I could not get a ride over there...

BUT! I did go to Knott's Scary Farm, courtesy of my Eskiho! It was fucking awesome! I loved Ghost Rider!! : D I also found out that they have horrible pizza there, and I added a few new pins to the collection on the lapel of my navy blue peacoat.

Recently, I have splurging on random shit. I bought two new sweaters yesterday at H&M, since I went with EskiHo, her boyfriend and Josey to Fox Hills mall. I've also recently bought: a boxed set of the Indiana Jones movies, The Rocky Horror Picture Show 25th anniversary DVD set, a RHPS patch, and a copy of "The Elements of Style" which is really interesting. I recommend!

Most important part: I've started NaNoWriMo, which is a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in thirty days. I have wanted to start this so badly, but I've been sooooo busy! So I'm cutting this short in order to work on that! I'm already like five days behind!!!

Wish me luck!!

Side Note:
What to expect on future posts: A full account of last weekend, my argument with a former friend whose trying to convert me, me bitch about my midterm, my experience at a various plays and more awesomeness!
