Ok, so break ends...now. Ugh, classes start tomorrow and...well, I guess I'm ready. I did get into the scuba theory class that I wanted. I'm pretty psyched about that. So, what's my greatest challenge in life? Currently, God is testing my patience. Ha ha, that sounds funny! No, literally, he has given me insight for my future (not a psychic vision or anything) and it's right in front of me and I can't have it. I have to prepare myself for it and...wait. I hate waiting. I have always been pretty… Continue

Ok so I'm sick so I'm not at my best but because this is my first post this will work to my advantage because in my next post I will seem amazingly witty. I spent most of yesterday evening avoiding filliing out my aplication to CIA, that's The Cleveland Institute Of Art not the Central Intelligence Agency, and I finaly sat down and did it at about midnight. Now I have to write my personal statement. Shit.
The question: "Describe in detail you purpose for attending a collage of art and… Continue

I've always been struck by how much of our civilization can at once appear to be new and well maintained and completely abandoned. My fiancé and I went for a walk today down the hill along Walnut Creek, where there is a hodgepodge of open space, golf course, and office buildings that appear to have been dropped randomly on an otherwise untamed landscape. It was cold, and the wind made it frigid. The scarf my love…

So I have been busy lately. Although I have only had about 2 hours of classes a day, I have been filling the time with hiking, reading, and hanging out with other expats.
This week I am going to try and go to Danyang with my coworker Yung Su. It will be fun to hang out outside of work. We just completed another English Camp. I have been trying to make a video of it all day, but problems have caused me to have to make it from scratch three different times. Anyways I thought that it… Continue

Meh, not really-- I'm just being melodramatic. Doo bee doo bee doooooooo.
I'm stuck on my paper for Going to Hell. Topic: How are themes of reciprocity and exchange important in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter
and the Nimi Jaataka
? I've got the hymn part fine, I've analyzed that before for Fenik and for Vandiver's classes. But the NJ
is going to be hard because it's going to be very irksome to pick a specific instance with enough to say about it to take up the space I… Continue

Today my friend Wade and I went to Park City, Utah. This in it's self is something since I really hate to drive (but I drove anyway). Anyway, for those who don't know the Sundance Film Festival is going on right now in Park City and this would normally be more than enough reason for me to stay home. But, we didn't go for the film festival, we went for a hockey game. I love hockey! But, you might ask, why would I make a trip to a place that I know will be crowded and annoying just for a… Continue

It is a miracle! But first, I have to blog about how I am going to bed at the fine and relatively early hour of 12:43 in the morning to further prolong the staying upness. My internal clock is broken, mkay? And here is a poem that I had to write in english last year (and got a hundred on and put far too much effort in for such a lame poem because I hate writing craptastic stuff, which it would have ended up to be if I simply followed the format, and got a hundred on the whole poetry unit but… Continue

The other day I heard from someone that a person I didn't know at school, knew me. And that a lot of other people did too. I guess that doesn't sound so weird, looking at it now. But it's weird for me. Being the new girl at school put me into the position where I know who everyone is, but they don't know me. Probably because I pay attention to my surroundings because I didn't really have a certain group(s) to talk to, centering my focus, like everyone else. I have started to know more and more… Continue

After realizing how thoroughly stressed out and depressed I was after the last post, I decided I should write that I am feeling much better now. It is the start of a brand new semester of my senior year- how much more can SHS throw at me? I have no final exams to worry about if I play my cards right, which makes my main worry and focus on the AP exams in sometime in the future. This semester I am done with the Engineering class (which made engineering seem as simple as adding simple fractions… Continue

I like how Captain Cockateil heads her blogs so I'm going to try it and see how I like it.
It just occured to me that many nerdfighters employ alliteration in their names, Capt. Cockateil for example and myself Witty Witch.
---There, that was the unexpected blog topic of the day.
Moving right along I'M BREAKING OUT!!! I AM DISGUSTING!!! I AM A BREEDING GROUND FOR FACE ERUPTIONS!!!!!!
Is everyone sufficiently icked out? Good. Actually, it's not as bad as all that.… Continue

so I keep wndering around the NerdNing trying to find blogs to read and comment on and hopefully hit it off with some kickass nerdfighters, but no one really utilizes the blog function. and I thought it was a little hypocritical of me to be upset at this and not have a blog myself. so....ta-da...!
so B2.0 kind of got me into watching vlogs, and i'm really liking it at this point. it sounds kind of weird, i like watching other people talk about themselves on the… Continue

so a couple of days ago, my friend trevor was talking about one of his favorite books. It's called And Still We Rise.
(ALL TOGETHER NOW!)
...IN YOUR PANTS!
this is basically the explanation for why I laughed my ass off for a good ten minutes. Apparently it is A Tragic Tale of Doom and so everyone thought I was *being* an ass. Ah well. Good times.
Heyyyy so I have a question, if there's anyone reading this.
How did you convert your friends? Was there a… Continue
