|Not a nightmare, at least... XD

Okay, so last night I dreamed that I was trying to find the "perfect" My Chemical Romance poster. Heheh. Anyways, I was in some kind of mall, and there was a store selling nothing but posters. So I went in. And who should be working the whole store, but Gerard Way the lead singer of My Chemical Romance. Yeaaaah. Anyway, I told him what I was looking for and he got all excited like, "Yay! A fan of my pretty famous band!" Let me add that the store was absolutely empty of people other than us. My boyfriend showed up later to help me look. I seriously think I spent the entire night trying to decide between the three posters that they had of MCR. So weird. Anyway, then my mom shows up and she's all impatient and wanting to go. And I just want to say, "hello?! Gerard Way is helping me pick out posters!! This is a once in a lifetime thing!" I guess he was just going to be working there for the one day, lol.
Long story short, I was sad when I woke up and realized that the poster I wanted doesn't exist. :( And I'd spent so much time picking it out. Oh well.

And now I'm supposed to tag people, but since I don't feel like naming 12 people to respond (it took twelve minutes to fill out, and them's the rules), I guess I'll just say: Hey! You reading this! It's fun. You should totally try it and then maybe let me know. Because it's something to do. Yeah. Okay then.

Okay, I'm officially sick of this.
I have had nightmares on Friday, Sunday, Monday, and Today. I just woke up from one, in fact. (It's 6:57 am). Not when I wanted to get up, but whatever. It's close enough.
And they're not just "oooh, creepy" nightmares either. They are "wake up with the sound of blood rushing through my ears, my heart pounding, sweat everywhere, and the worry that I may still be asleep" nightmares. They suck. Horribly.
Plus it sort of makes me feel stupid. I dunno. I guess everybody probably has nightmares, but it feels like I should be able to do something about it. I've always had pretty good control over my dreams. And just now, a few minutes ago, there came an opportunity to do something before it got "scary." So, in my dream, I stood up and (with a flashlight appearing out of nowhere) said to myself "See? There's absolutely nothing to be afraid of." I shined the light in my closet (and ohmygosh how cliche is that anyway?!?!) and just as I was done, some freaking phantom or something whipped out of there, knocked me over, and gave a horrifingly evil "giggle" to boot. So then I'm laying there, in my dream like "this sucks" and so I wake up. I'm back in my dorm, nowhere near my closet which is at home. I notice that my suitemate has left the bathroom light on again, as usual, and for once I am grateful. (I don't share a room, just a bathroom.)
Anyway, then I reach into my backpack, pull out a pack of gum, and throw it towards the bathroom in frustration at having had another nightmare. Immediately, the bathroom light goes off. "Great," I think. Just what I need. I sit up better and turn on the floor lamp at the end of my bed. Nothing. No precious light. Nothing. "Oh no, I'm still dreaming!!" is the thought that pops into my head. Which, thankfully, worked this time. I woke up, dazed, frozen, knowing I made some weird "unghhh" sound during my awakening, and feeling mostly, well, annoyed.
Thanks a hell of a lot, Brain. You and my subconscious are soooooo uninvited to my next birthday party.

What kind of disease are you?
Leann is caused by sponges.
Leann disease causes immediate spontaneous combustion.
The only cure for Leann is to paint everything you own a bright hot pink. This includes family members, small children, and pets.

Hey everybody. Well, I've officially survived 2 and a half days of school. So far, so good. Only, what, 150 to go, or something? Anyway, my classes look good. I've only seen two people I recognize so far. Everytime I come back to campus it seems like there are at least 2 thousand more people than there were last year. I really don't remember it being this crowded... I'm about to head to my first day of orchestra. :) I'm looking forward to it because I'm in first violins this year. That means I'll be closer to the audience. (yipes!) We'll see how that goes, hehe.
Ooooh, and I almost forgot. I have a room to myself!!! No Roommate= Very. Nice. XP

Sorcerous Evil (I'm sorry that the picture is
messed up) - "Enchanting and full of
mystique you are beautiful but lethal. Without
even lifting a finger you can decimate
thousands of humans. You are the epitomy of
total annihilation, but despite all that you
can be quite charming in your own way."
What type of evil being are you inside?

charming in your own way. *scoffs* And what exactly is that supposed to mean?! *blasts quiz-maker into oblivion* mwahahah...

Your Birthdate: June 7
Born on the 7th day of month gives you a tendency to be something of a perfectionist and makes you more individualistic in many ways.
Your mind is good at deep mental analysis and complicated reasoning.
You are very psychic and sensitive, and you should usually follow your hunches.
You may not take orders too well, so you may want to work alone or in a situation where you can be the boss.
This birthday gives a tendency to be somewhat self-centered and a little stubborn.
LIES!! ALL LIES!!! <.< >.>

I'm taking care of a friend's dog while she's out of town, and when I was at her house yesterday, I saw the BIGGEST SPIDER I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. (Well, that wasn't behind glass, at least).
I took pictures of it. Maybe I'll post one. It's worth knowing what could be under the couch at this very minute. :P

Well, I'm starting to get a little nervous about this upcoming semester at school. I think I have a valid reason for being anxious. See, I've signed up for Intermediate Spanish. And, um...I haven't taken spanish since 11th grade. That happens to have been about FOUR YEARS AGO. crap, what am I thinking?!!
Anyway, I emailed a couple of professors at the school, wondering if they had any helpful tips. Maybe a book I should read, or a computer program I should use... Something to *ahem* "brush up" on my skills. At least that last year of Spanish was AP Spanish. But I didn't exactly do great. I don't know. I mean, I'm thinking to myself. Okay. As long as I study my butt off now and during the school year, I should be fine. It'll "come back to me." But now I'm not so sure. Worst comes to worst, I'll just drop it and sign up for something else. Learn a different language instead. Starting from the beginning.
I don't want to do that. I like Spanish. Not to mention the fact that since I live in Texas, I'm pretty sure it'll come in handy. :)

Howdy, howdy, everyone. It's been a long time, but I'm happy to report that things are going much much better. We figured out that part of why Mom was feeling so bad was because she was reacting badly to a medication the doctors had her on. So, that's a relief. There's still stuff going on, but it's not spiralling downward like it seemed to have been before.
Thanks to all of you who left comments. Each one made my day that much lighter.
And on to news. Let's see. School is looming on the horizon for me. Hahah. It's about a month away, but that seems far too soon to me. I feel like summer just started. I've been writing a lot more, and boy does it feel great. I'm really excited about my upcoming creative writing class, and kind of preparing some interesting story ideas.
I haven't read Harry Potter Six yet. Everyone is mentioning it and talking about how they've read it, so I thought I'd be different and admit that I haven't. I haven't even bought it yet. *audience gasps*
Hehe, I haven't really been able to figure out why. I mean, I'm a fan of Harry Potter. I'm not, you know, a rabid fan or anything, but I like the books quite a bit, and J.K. Rowling is sort of my idol. Am I the only one that thinks it's totally bizarre I haven't gone out and gotten it yet?

Hey guys, sorry about the dead air for so long. I've been kind of busy dealing with family stuff. I should have at least let you know what's going on. Anyway, my mom's really sick. She's still up and walking around and stuff, but she had some blood work done and she's severely anemic. All the doctors would say is that it means that she's leaking blood somewhere inside, and they need to find out where. They also found a "mass" somewhere around her stomach area that shouldn't be there. They aren't calling it a tumor, but, you know...I'm not really sure what else it might be. Anyway, I've been driving her around to all these doctor's appointments and just trying to stay cool. I'm pretty sure she'll be okay, so we're all trying to stay upbeat. I'll let you guys know if there are any developments.

Have fun. I know I am.

|Your brain: 80% interpersonal, 120% visual, 180% verbal, and 20% mathematical!|
|Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers. |
Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:
- Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
- Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
- Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.
|My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:|
||You scored higher than 74% on interpersonal|
||You scored higher than 83% on visual|
||You scored higher than 97% on verbal|
||You scored higher than 12% on mathematical|

Last night I dreamed that I was Alucard's master.
That was fun.
I wish I could remember more of it, but I pretty much was having him go around and fight people. Then I got kidnapped or something, and he got me out. He was surprisingly in character, hehe. I had to work to keep him in line, even though it was in my dream!

That...that was weird.
