Well, no template work as of yet, but for once, I had a wonderfully relaxing day. And tomorrow I'm shopping!!! I'm aparently in need of spring clothing. :) Did I ever tell you I love people? ^_^ I can't help it. :)

Wow. You can tell it springy when there's a fan on in my room and I am not cold!!! My carpet was washed so it's being dried. The windows are open and the fan is sucking in fresh air and helping circulate, so in the end, I have a drier carpet faster. :)

Wow. I've officially completed my first year of University. To boot, next year I'll be one of those reps who guides the little newbies around campus. Wow. People are going to trust me implicitly to get them to their classes, and on time at that. Now, the whole cheering thing and MOCKING Woodstock when they're OBLITERATED by the SOCS in the bed race, that I can do, but class, and on time? *Grins* We'll have to see! Well......it'll make me late for mine won't it? *mischevious grin*

Despite how it sounds, I'm a pretty regular class goer and will be even more so next year. :) That's the plan anyhow! I"ll have to cook, clean, iron, do my own laundry, clean my own bathroom.........man, it'll be busier!!! And grocery shop!!! Want to know something scary? I kinda look forward to trying it. :)

Life is soo wonderfully complicated, and yet so simple. Beautiful.

I can't wait for the summer now. I think it'll be an interesting challenge, these next few years. Oh! And I've decided. I have to see Europe. I have to go. I'm planning for when I'm done school. I'm going to start saving. :) Impressed? ^_^ I'm not yet. We'll wait till I start to have enough in my account before getting too positive :)

Ahh, cats are such ............interesting creatures. :) I still love dogs, but I can always appreciate cats too. Especially the brat perched on my knee right now. Keeps walking in front of the computer until I let him lay on my knee. His walking across the keyboard increases my typos from my far too speedy typing. >^_^<

Here's an interesting question. What makes you happy? Have you ever really thought about that? I'm not sure I've ever truly taken the time to look at that. This is starting to feel waaayy too much like Runaway Bride..........>^_^<

I've been expanding my vocabulary and have a few intesting tidbits for ya'll! :)

Thanks to Greg and his Lexicon, we now have realized that "meh" is the Hebrew word for "whatever". How perfect! :)

Here's a neat word for the week! (or more or less!) Sugoi! (Sue-goy-ee) It means Wow! Bad! Awesome! (In Japanese that is ^_^)

Baka, is another favorite and fairly well known, (ba-ka) it means stupid, idiot. :)

I have one last little bit of info for everyone! ^_~

Well, in Japan, there are people that believe that your blood type influences your personality! This is quite a bit like astrological signs! Characters in Japanese manga for instance usually list their blood type and this is why! Curious what your blood says about you? Well read on!

O - Strong, energetic, people with blood type O make good leaders. Good jobs for you O types, reporters, politicians and apparently, super heros! :) Lucky you!

A - Well, people with type A tend to be more soft-spoken, perfectionists. They're also trustworthy and a bit on the brainy side, though usually not overly social. When it comes to jobs, Type A's usually make the best writers and scientists.

B - people with this blood type tend to be curious, social but, a little on the unreliable side. For these lively folks, jobs that involve a lot of social interaction are the best.

AB - now, though this blood type seems to breed social outcasts, they are natural leaders and are sensitive, cautious, disciplined and sentimental. Unfortunately, they often hold grudges. Characters with this blood type are often shown as very focused on a spiritual side of themselves, or a sport, such as kendo, or archery. (not a social sport, but an indivudual one where they are bettering themselves.)

Well, I think I'll leave off here before I go on all night!! *grins* Wow, my talkativeness comes back now and then! Have no fear! :) There will be many more posts as I figure out where my life is going. I'm sure I'll know soon enough. :)

Good night & God bless minna-san!!! (everyone) I hope to see you all again soon. I'll miss you guys!!!!!!!! (Fellow macians and Socs people!)

PS> Good songs this past little while:
Exam theme songs: Where is my Mind? by the Pixies (end of Fight Club)
Lifehouse, Hanging by A Moment, just because it's serious, and fitting to my mood at the time. Intense. :)
Anything a bit dark and heavy. Shady Land by Pavement actually worked. Headboard, of course, and Treble Charger. Any of the heavier stuff on my list. Yes, this is heavy on my list. I usually love upbeat, happy, strong and a little complicated. I'm lightening up a little bit again, now that school's out. I'm liking the fun summer stuff, but still tending towards intense and serious.

Give some of those songs a chance. I know Where is My Mind is a little odd at first, but a friend recommeded it to me, and it's a bit odd at first, but boy did it grow on me as I hit exam crunch time!!!!! Well guys, until next time!

JA NE! (jah-nay) = See you later :)

Well, this is the THIRD attempt, and I almost finished last time I tried to post............ SO no more NETSCAPE. I used to love that program. But it keeps fritzing out on me! Weird! Anyhow, I don't think I'm going to try to post all that again. Perhaps later.
To visit a GREAT site with free mp3z that I'm sure you'll all love go here to visit the site of Headboard! They're a great band!

Anyhow, I'm off, my show's on soon. :) Yes, I'm going to watch TV again!!!!!! I haven't for ages, I wonder what it's like...........

Oh ya! :_) I'm finally going to work on my template here so you'll see a few changes over the next week I hope!

Cya guys!

Have fun & God bless!

You know, rereading that last post, the random comments DO come from somewhere. I was simultaneously talking to at least three people while typing that.......*grins* And Sanjay was whining, dying to hear about my life! Who can blame him? *laughs* So, sorry for the apparent randomness but they fit with my conversations and my studying............and what I was thinking *laughs*...........
So anyhow! Enjoy!

God bless and have fun!

Someone asked me about love the other day and someone send me this quote, and I found it very fitting. So here's another excellent definition or rather, representation of love. I think anyhow! :)

************************************************************************
"When you smiled you had my undivided attention,
When you laughed you had my urge to laugh with you,
When you cried you had my urge to hold you,
When you said that you loved me you had my heart forever."
************************************************************************
Well, *grins* after being told by Sanjay that I'm neglecting all of you, I've decided to furthur my study break here with this blog :) you'll probably find a few today. ^_^ I've secluded myself in my room with my books and computer in hopes that I'll emerge a competent history student. We'll see............^_^

Well, secluded may not be the best term :) I am currently having a conversation about my ability to blog regularily and how it ought to "improve" over the summer according to Sanjay (or perhaps that was a threat? *grins* I'm sorry to dissapoint you. I know how you depend on hearing about my life twice every day ^_^), as well as a fun conversation about cars, can't wait to go car shopping though it'll be years before I get my baby. (Yes I've been trying to bury my thing for cars, but I can't. There's just something about a car.........^_^ So much better than oogling guys honestly!!! I used to get in trouble for that when I was out with the girls..........^_~)

And a lovely music discussion with Ivo who's my new study buddy I've decided. *L*

Ivo and Greg are the best, honestly, good for a girl's ego. :)
And Sanjay, he's just great. Thanks for all the help. Ya'll saved my butt these past few weeks. I can't thank you enough but don't worry, you'll be getting cookies :) that's why I baked them after all!!! ^_^

So now that I've supplemented my music collection with various genres and the ever present jpop, for which I've found new sources...........Ah Megumi! :) Anyhow!

And hey, cool it Sanjay, you can handle a few more minutes without me! ^_~

So, life's been interesting and wonderfully compliacted as always but everything is beginning to fall into place. :) Lots of baking too! I made cookies (chocolate chip) and they turned out quite well, just how I like them anyhow! And today I made a cheesecake with fruit on it :) should be good but I'll let you know after I try it. :)

Well, studying for history. I'm scared, no TERRIFIED of my mark........we're going to be doing a lot of studying. Sleep is significantly less important!!!!

Well I've been meaning to have conversations of the week.........originally Sanjay and his sheep held the honor but I didn't post it :) So for last week, since we've only just started this week, I'd have to say.................Ivo and his funny explinations of Jamie's character. He describes him so well, you had to hear it. :)

That's it. Why on earth does EVERYONE assume I'm some sort of horrible tease? Why is it people assume this? Yeesh.

*grins* If I had those comments things on my page now I could start up the whole topic about guys and girls and well, we'll wait for the little comment thingys so I don't get emails *L* but remind me of this later. :)

Not too much substance here eh? That's because I'm currently involved in covert operations (no, seriously!) so I can't tell you about who I had over last night and what we were doing, and if you take that in ANY sick way I'll personally kick your butt, Naru style! (YAY Love Hina!) Anyhow! We were devising a plan for a little project we're working on and the upside was Bailey got his walk, and I got to be outside last night, not here studying. *hehe* Perhaps a bad call, but nice because the stars were out and the air was fresh and it wasn't raining anymore though the air was still damp. It was a great night actually. Up till about 4, later that is. I know how you're taking this Sanjay. Enjoy it. :p
Anyhow! After aforementioned friend left, I did some stuff around here, got on the computer and ended up talking on the phone with Ivo till late. :)
Haven't really heard much from Jamie, having fun at home I think. :) I've been busy to so it's actually better that we haven't tried to talk, last night was full and so is today! I might even be on campus studying tonight! (History study session Sanj? Ivo's coming so far.......:) If I can get to campus and you are sooo bloody sick.)

That's it. I have to stop typing. :) I know exactly what you're thinking you horrible person (you know who you are) and I'm just making it worse *laughs*

That's it, I have to remember how to avoid sick connotations in my talking/typing........*grins sheepishly* ah well, so long as you get a laugh. :)

Enjoy your studying guys and good luck on exams!!!!!!

MATA NE! And God bless!

Have fun!

Thought ya'll would enjoy this:

If a dog were your teacher, you would learn stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.



When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

Take naps and stretch before rising.



Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.



On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.



No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout... run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.



Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.



And MOST of all...
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.


Hey, here's a question for you. What's the first thing you think of in the morning?

I was surprised by the number of people who wake up and wonder if it's sunny. Sure, I eventually wonder what the weather is like when I start to get up and find clothes, but still! Wow, I thought the time would be more common, or day or something........:) Anyhow....

It's been FAR too long!!! But, I've been busy! I've written two exams! And all sorts of really exciting things that I probably won't bother posting! :) Sure you're saying, you can post about nothing for PARAGRAPHS but when good stuff happens nothing? And the answer is yes. ^_^

Well, I've had many run ins with police officers these days. Mostlly friendly ones don't worry, but if you ever want to know how to get a police officer upset, ask Sanjay. :) Sorry hon, couldn't resist.........:)

Well, it's time to say good bye to all of my Mac friends, I'm going to miss you all so much!!

Nope, still don't know if I'm moving....the right guy hasn't been around yet to talk to.....we'll know soon enough I'd wager.^_^

Well, so much last minute studying and the late nights are going to get to me if I don't get some sleep, I want to be able to go out next weekend after all!!! End of school celebration!

What was that about dancing?

The best part is, next Friday I'm done exams and the easiest one is last. Monday, Thrusday and Friday left. I can do it. I'll just have to study LOTS. I want to do well on the first and second one especially.

Well, I'm off, more later!!! ^_^ Sorry I've been disinterseting for a while, but visit me on icq or over email sometime if you get bored, I'm probably online while studying! :)

JA!

Hey! Wow, not many posts these days eh? Well it just so happens that we've entered the dreaded exam period! I won't be on much for a little while, or perhaps I'll be on more *grins* as I attempt to study! So wish me luck!

I've been sort of busy! Since the first, we've had my Daddy's birthday! And I've gone out for dinner with Lisa, Ivo and Jamie! As well as attended a study session at Char's house for my first exam! And hey, decided I really like Cyotey Ugle (Yuck can't spell today).

Anyhow, I'm going to go now, go hit the books! Again, wish me luck!!!

JA!

It's alive!!! >^_^< After a few days of bad, horrible timing, I managed to try to log onto blogger while it wasn't down!!! *grins*

Well, it's been a while, Tuesday of last week was the last post and well, definately a lot of things have happened since then! :) I actually got my Classics essay done and in and today is a mmedia finishing day as well as Philos, ah the homework!

Well, shockingly, it's been 5 months as of today since Jamie and I started dating. Wow. I didn't realize just how much time had passed. Imagine we'll all be out of school soon, and it seems like just yesterday that University was a foreign concept.....now we'll be second years. Most of us are going to be Socs reps, Red Suits, CAs, or just SOCS Alumni ^_^ so next year will be full, but fun. I can only imagine!! Oh ya, I ought to finallyl decide on my major eh?

Well, Things are crazy here, as always! I went riding last night, man I've missed Storm. He was the sweetest thing last night. Jamie came out to meet him too!

He's being sold though. The horse, not Jamie ^_~. That's sad. It's not everyday you get to bond with a horse like that. I'm going to miss him, a lot. He deserves more attention than I give him though, but something inside me wants to fight for him. Go out almost everyday.........it's worth a shot right? I know getting a horse is a possibility now.......but can I fit it into my schedule......

First off I have to wonder, will I ever get my homework done? The answer is yes, I've made a dent, that's the first step! *laughs*

Last week was neat. I don't think I did too much, SOCS rep meeting, homework, hanging out with Jamie while doing homework, well there was one get together! :) Lisa, Paul, Ivo, Jamie and I ended up having an interesting night over at Jamie's. :) It was definately funny anyhow! :) I even managed to get home at a decent hour! We were supposed to go see a movie, first the Mexican, then we revised to Enemy at the Gates and then we watched Top Gun on Jamie's computer and ended up staying in for various reasons. :) I missed Karekoe last night (I know sorry, spelt wrong again I'm sure ^_^) too bad, but sounds like so did a few others....next time! :)

Jamie came over for a trip to the stable, supper and a movie! We ran into an old friend of mine while picking up the movie and that was really nifty! Then we ended up picked Mulan. *laughs* How many guys volunteer to watch Disney? I love that movie, thanks Jamie! :) And he even supplied the Coke! ^_~ (POP guys!)

So it was a good night all in all, very relaxing. Missed going out because it was 4:30, no plans made yet and I really wanted to go riding, so it just worked out best if I stayed in. Getting home would have been intensley complicated too.

Hey my parents are even now SURE I need my G2. In other words, they WANT me to drive myself around. See? Waiting has it's benefits!! My parents WANT me to take the car!! *laughs* No fighting here! Excellent, it's all going as planned! :) Just call and make my appointment tomorrow!!! (Of course I'll be practicing a bit tomorrow or tonight or something with my parallel parking, anyone with tips, I'd love to hear 'em!)

Anyhow, I really gotta get going on my assignment, it's almost time to go take pictures at the barn!

I'll talk to ya'll later!

Have fun & God bless!
