I Feel All Sorts of Discomfort

Ever since I went back to college, my health seems to be taking a turn for the worse. I have hives everywhere, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. My wrists, my back, and my head are in pain, especially when I go outside. I really need to see the doctor soon or at least figure out where I can refill my meds here. This is ridiculous! I have no fever, and I even smell ill! What's going on with me? If it doesn't rain here soon, I am in for a very painful semester. Stupid allergies. (I hope it's only allergies.)

Well, even though I feel shitty, I really should be getting back to my RPs. I haven't seen any of them in a while, and I bet I missed a lot. It'll be nice to get back, though. I hear less stress is better for you, and I have plenty of fun RPing. If this gets any worse or if I can't see a doctor soon, I may have to call a hiatus, which sucks, because I failed the Econtra activity check last time. I'm not sure they'll allow it.

Oh, and I finally have a speech topic: Education or Stupidity.

This will be fun to research. >: D

I'm Back

Wow, ever since I went to college, things have been changing so much. I never even go on here anymore. However, I decoded to change that and go back to blogging this way again, even though I have a facebook now. It's nice to have another place to put my thoughts where not everyone I know IRL can see. Anyway, I'm happy that I'm in college. I'm working hard. There's a lot of things I want to say right now, but I'll go little by little.

I'm also starting to do a gaming log here, so let's try my first entries:

Gaming Log

DS Lite

Brain Age - Damn. I'm name only 28 years old. Granted, my best score was 22/23, but I was just at about 38. I have to try harder. I can't believe I let myself go like that. Luckily, I played at least 7 days this month. That's a start.

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - 51:11. It's official. I have spent more than fifty hoours playing that game, and the most I've done was planting berries. This sucks. I need to find time for this.

Last warning for spoilers!

Note: I also have a spoiler from Charlotte's Web and OF Mice and Men. For those who have not read those book and do not know what happens in the end, I advise you to turn back now!

Wow, I read so much last night and today that I might as well just finish the book rather than write a second log. I had suspicions about Snape and Dumbledore. As I thought, so far it doesn't look like Dumbledore is as evil as some people who have read the book are making it out to be. It merely seems that Dumbledore is a manipulative asshole just a few heads ahead of Percy when it comes to dickery. THen again, at least Percy redeemed himself. Percy himself seems to be the type of guy who really loves his family deep down even though he seems to loath them in another moment.

Out of all the families in the series, the Weasleys had the highest chance of suffering a tragedy. First, they really supported Harry Potter since the beginning. That doomed them. Second, they have more children than most families, thus increasing their chances of having a death in the war against Voldemort. Lastly, they have been a thorn to his side, such as the several times Ron helped Harry and when the twins threw snowballs at his face.

Speaking of Ron, I have a feeling that he really showed the most growth and truly is a boy worthy of the Gryffindor name. Out of trio, I think Ron is the one who is the most likely to have succumbed to the locket's powers. The way he went against it shows just how strong he is.

Now speaking of Gryffindor, brave as he supposedly was, I fear that I may have been right when I began to think of ideas of what the four founders of Hogwarts were like. For those I hadn't told, I was thinking of making fun of them, because they were characters that were not really characters at all, more background than anything else. Hell, I would even go as far and say they are beautiful plot devices.

Anyway, my original ideas for the humor fic would be that Godric (That's way easier to type.) was an idiot. You know the type. He was a foolish man who would leap into anything without thinking and still have the luck to get out of it. Kinda think of Don Quijote that had magic and a sword. DOn Quijote would still be more preferable. He probably would even go to battle with the sword rather than the wand. Anyway, my idea of him would be more idiotic than the gifts and praise that most speak of him with. So, even so, he seemed to have stolen a goblin's swords, even though the goblins have a weird sense of ownership. Either way, getting on the goblins' nerves totally screwed the present genereation further. In other words, I have a feeling that I was right - Godric was an imbecil.

One of the best parts in the books is where all of Hogwarts take on the attack against Voldemort. Prof. McGongall is badass! All the teachers are. Hell, Neville's grandmother kicks ass. Go old people!

The one thing that is really bothering me is the lack of muggles. I had a feeling they were more important and was going to play a critical role in the story. So far, there isn't. This is concerning me. I hope at least we can see more of Draco. It's good to know there are so many people who care about his well-being. The Malfoys sure have good paternal instincts.

Now, in regards to Snape, I fear to type about him, in case I really spoil someone badly. However, I still have the feeling that his whole life will be one big tragedy. I always knew he was just looking out for people. He never was really the evil one. From what I heard, my aunt cried after reading everything about Snape. Damn, I hope its not what I think.

Speaking of tagedies, I just have to say that Dobby's death was the saddest. What happened to Dobby was up there in the saddest deaths in literature that I ever read, which includes Charolette from Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and Lenny from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and made me sadder than any other occurence in the Harry Potter series. I think Dobby was critical to Harry's overall life story. I'm still upset over it, but I couldn't be more happy, because he helped Harry just like he always wanted to.

One last thing I want to bring up is that the childhood stories of wizards and witches that Hermione carries - it contains the story about the Deathly Hollows - seems to be foreshadowing. Someone in the trio is doomed, but I think the most important part is more on how they die and their level of acceptance of it. I could go into analyzing the story, but I would feel very silly.

I think the last thing I want to mention is Ariana. They aren't explicit in what happened to her when she was 6, but the human imgination can run real wild. Who knows? I hope that it isn't the worst thing that I'm thinking of. It is highly unfortunate that such an inncoent girl would be subject to the worst of what Muggles can do. No matter what anyone says, wizards are afraid of Muggles. That's the whole story. A horrid thing, however, from this is that most of the bad things that most fans assume happened to Ariana will only show up, because she is a girl. I personally think she could have been greater than her brothers with the magic she was able to do. It's a huge pity. Either way, the only question I have now is what was Dumbledore really thinking? Whatever we believe, we know most of the characters through Harry's eyes, and we only know some people from what others say about them. This includes Dumbledore. Other characters are the least reliable source of what a character's true nature really is. Therefore, before I make any true final judgements, I'll reserve them and keep reading on.

That's all for now. I'm pretty sure then next one will be me typing about the end. I may or may not complain. Toodles!

Last warning for Harry Potter Spoilers!






Day 1:

OMG they killed Hedwig!!!!! >:C

Seriously, that was something I didn't see that coming. I also have a feeling that what happened to Mad-Eye is not what it seems. Frankly, at this point, anyone's a target except for Hagrid as of now, because Hagrid just can't die. He has too many people depending on him. He has a dependent little brother and many animals he's caring for. It would be far too much a shame if he were to die. As long as Fleur and Bill's wedding doesn't end with a quick end with the bride or grrom dying, I think I'll be cool. As of now, I'm really wondering about Lupin. He's being overprotective, but there seems to be something wrong... Well, at least he's married to a really cool Auror.

Oh, and is it incredibly wrong of me to totally love Dudley now? He's actually somewhat grateful! I really hope he doesn't die and show up again somewhere. The Dursleys leaving was an absolutely perfect scene to me. Also, this book is getting seriously dark. Perhaps those who began reading the book when they were young matured, so the series itself must mature. It's rather interesting when you think about it.

Lastly, I just want to say that the trio seems to have grown incredibly competent. Capared to how they were before, they seem to be actually capable of taking down some Death Eaters. I'm still awaiting more new characters, any proof/disproofs of my theories, more Snape, and muggles.

For those who don't know, I think that Muggles will play a huge part in the story. In all technicality, I believe they are mightier than wizards.

Well, that's all for now, I'll update again as I read more.

Time to Complain

Well, since apparently LJs are now for the purpos of complaining, I might as well type about all that's pissing me off as of now, especially since I have my monthly visitor right now.

Right now, I'm having a bit of college trouble. I've been accepted into one of the colleges I want to go to and I should be going there soon. However there has been financial problems. It may be too expensive for me to go there. So, I may just have to go to a community college, of which is really close by. I don't mind going there either. There is a chance I could get more financial aid in the next coming years. I have a huge decision to make.

On another note, it's been hard to concentrate and do all the things I need to do, because of my health. My skin is KILLING me. Seriously, my skin is very itchy and sensitive as of late. It's so bad, tomorrow, I will be going to the dermatologist to get these patches to test hat I'm allergic to. My ear is also swollen and it hurts helluva lot.

Because of this and other responsibilities, such as my part-time baby-sitting job, I have not had time to contact my friends. I don't really want to talk on the phone because of my swollen ear. This sucks. I should be e-mailing, but I have loads to do, like clean the house. (Which no one else cleans. Am I the person in the house that actually cleans around here? This sucks.)

More to come later from my aggravated state.

So bad...

Please no one reply to this. And I am in no danger. This is merely an emotional thing. People just need to know that people can feel like this sometimes.

I just wanna say that I feel so helpless right now. So helpless. It's a really bad feeling. I always knew I had it somewhere deep inside of me. Now, there's just too much of it. That's all. I'll just have to hold onto it until it natrually leaves from me. Until then, it's going to be a really sucky time to be me right now. That last line makes me feel guilty, though. There's people out there way worse off then me.

I am here

For the record, I am here.

Sorta.

I got something I need to do.

And I had to take out my neopets tiki icon, because I'm afraid neopets might sue. ;_;
If anyone has any alternative suggestion or a way for me to put my icon back legally, please, do tell.

Busy Busy Busy

I have been SO busy lately. I mean, damn! I think it really was a good idea to drop myself out of the BR RP. I just have no time anymore. I think I might quit myself out of all the RPs I am in. I just don't have the time, and this is AFTER I finished my school year.

Anyway, tomorrow is the dreaded SATs. I hate being so negative about it, but I honestly don't think it reflects intelligence. The ironic part about it is that this test might be my best bet to a good school. Apparently, my grades are dropping, because I suck at time management. I'll be working on it extra-hard next year. I barely got by with all the Bs I know I have now. my grades dropped, and that's going to look bad, especially since I know I could do better if I could just manage my damn time well. >.<

Anyway, I'm relying on a system I don't like, because it's my only hope, seeing that I did pretty good on my last SAT. This is the second time I'm taking it, because I believe my math grade could be better. Once I start getting the hang of my schedule for the summer, I'll start putting up some hints and tips for test-takers.

BTW, if anyone is reading this, tell me, am I the only one whose parents give them the chore of going to the book shop and see if Tenjou Tenge 6 is finally out? Am I?
