Well, I've been thinking a lot lately. It kind of sucks, actually. Sometimes I wish I were one of those blissfully ignorant folk that live off of their parents' hard work (rather capitalistic luck) or are satisfied with being unsatisfied.
However, I am not so blessed as to be ignorant. Lately my brain has been pondering topics that I realize are a bit... well, big. And my opinion is so small. For example, animal research. I am currently doing biology research involving chickens,… Continue

So, it's the summer of 2008. And all I can think of is how much I miss the summer of 2007. It was honestly probably one of my favorite summers ever. I became a Nerdfighter, discovered My Pants, and realized how much I truly love writing. There will probably never be such an amazing summer again.
Becoming a Nerdfighter was one of the best things that has happened to me. I've since accepted how much of a nerd I am. And even beyond accepting it, I'm embracing it. My Nerdfighterness… Continue

I've just been banned for the second time tonight. And I am convinced it's because Akismet wants my pizza rolls. My first comment that got me caught by the spambot was something like this:
"Yay! Hi Chuck!!! *is glad Chuck and Ella are back*
I have a headache. Erg.
I think I'll make some pizza rolls. Anybody want some?"
Then BOOM! Banned. Heather-Lynn unbanned me like 10 minutes later. Then I tried posting again. It was something like… Continue

WARNING: HERE BE SPOILERS
I just finished it. I started it this morning. And it was AMAZING. I wonder if John Green knows how powerful his book is.
I've written a few short stories that I know have caused people tears, but an entire half of a book... I only hope to someday write something so powerful that it can make readers LAUGH while CRYING. Honestly.
And I wanted to put it down but I couldn't. The only time I did was when I had to go to work. And then… Continue

There is a God, and he loves me!!
I just spilt a crap load of hot tea on my computer. Straight onto my laptop. If it had a bullseye of where a hot liquid would do the most damage, I hit it. My compy turned off immediately. It pretended to start up once after I drained it and then went black again. It stayed black for a couple more minutes. I put my ear to my it, to listen for the equivalent of a computer's heartbeat. Nothing. I almost started crying. I tried a couple more times to… Continue

I do try to do at least one good deed a day, but I often don't think of it till after it's done. So my good deed for today is done. I reconciled a fighting couple. Hoorah for me! :) Weekends involving drinking have sooo much unnecessary drama.
And then for the subject of Valentine's Day, CC would remember me complaining that I had not received anything in a game I was playing that was similar to Secret Santa, but it was more like Secret Admirer. We are assigned a person to give gifts… Continue

So Tom has tagged me. Thank you Tom. :) I was kinda worried I wouldn't get tagged. Like one of those things when everyone figures someone else will do it eventually and I'd get left out. :( But that didn't happen. Sooooo....
My Five Facts That I Think You Didn't Know:
1. I can set up a tipi with just my mom and two of my sisters in under 30 minutes and I know how to make dreamcatchers.
2. I sing along to every song I hear, whether or not I know the words. I can't… Continue

Oh Heather-Lynn, how I love you for unbanning me from My Pants.
You are a great spam ninja/moderator/administrator.
You made my day and brought a smile to my face.
You showed Askimet who was B-O-S-S boss.
I heart you.
(and all my other fellow Nerdfighters too)

I've finally been banned!!! I posted a link to a Ning blog in the Paste game thread and Aksimet thought it was spam.
So I've emailed Hank and I'm gonna bother Heather-Lynn in a bit.
But yeah, now I can finally join the club.

Okay, basically it's Winter Term here at Dartmouth. It's the shortest term of the year, only 9 weeks instead of the usual 10, so every class is rushing along. So naturally (or unnaturally) I have a lot of class work to do.
But this term I am also involved in more organizations that I ever have been before. I'm the treasurer of the Native American student org, the treasurer of my sorority on campus, and the co-president of AISES (American Indian Science and Engineering Society). In… Continue

I'm pretty sure I shouldn't bring my computer to class anymore. It's so distracting and I haven't paid any attention in class.
And now it's almost over. Eek. I'm not sure I learned anything so far. My computer is definitely staying in my bag for my next class.
But first I want to post this blog.
And this picture.
I think I'll title it Good Morning Hair.
This is how my hair often looks in the morning. I hope it… Continue

Happy New Year's Everyone!
They say that the way you bring in the New Year reflects how the rest of your year will be. Well, if that's true I'm looking forward to one hell of a twisted year.
So far today (starting at 12 am) I've been a designated driver for my drunk sister and her drunk husband (it was her birthday and New Year's Eve), I've cooked spaghetti at 4 am, been physically unable to sleep in (thanks a lot, internal clock), overate at my Grandma's, lost a game of Dora… Continue
