So I'm 21 now.

Artichoke Jalapeno dip. Holy crap, that is the best idea for a dip ever.

I can barely remember the last time I did an entry in this thing that was about my life, and wasn't a one-liner and/or joke. So, hell, why not.

School. This is my last quarter at Green River. Holy crap, that's scary. I'm going to be out of school for at least one quarter, though, Re: deadlines and stuff. Which is actually even scarier. *exhales*

Work. Still none. Probably going to be using my off time to get a job, provided I even can with this economy and my complete lack of job experience.

Life (daily). Holy crap what am I going to do with my time when I get out of school. It'll be the first quarter I've ever had where I genuinely have nothing to do and nowhere to go, and that's part of what makes it scary.

Life (social). I'm trying to be more outgoing with some of the people at school, so that I might have something other than my education to take away from my time at Green River. Up till now-- that's for the past two years-- I haven't been very sociable at all at this school, and I'm starting to think that that was the biggest mistake I have ever made. In my entire life. With only a couple weeks left, it's starting to look like too little, too late.

On a lighter note: when you start thinking of a situation like the above in terms of "ranking up S. Links", you know it's time to get a life. >.>;

Life (biological). So I'm turning 21 soon. And no, I don't want anything to do with alcohol, on that day or any other. I still kinda want to do something, though, I'm just not sure what yet.

WoW. Hit level 60 not long ago. I got enough reputation to buy a Swift Mechanostrider, but I'm still several hundred gold from being able to afford my Artisan riding skill, aaaaarrrrggghhh. And the cost of skill training is making the raising of money a lot more difficult. *squirm*

Love. Hahahahahahahah. Ohhh man. Why did I bother to put this here, I'm too private about this stuff.

So yeah. I should really try to do this more often, but I hardly ever feel like it anymore *shrug*

So, yeah. Quite the episode today.

It's finals week, if you didn't know. Today was the day for my Anthropology final. The class, and the final, starts at nine and ends at eleven. In order to get to class on time, I have to get up between six and six-thirty, and leave for the bus at either seven or seven-thirty. I went to bed after a night of studying-- ah, screw it, I'll come clean, I was working on a late paper. Anyways, I was up really late doing it, and I went to bed.

Woke up with a start and a loud curse at 10:00.

So, is that it? Tuition for that class down the toilet?

Thankfully, no.

I managed, thanks in large part to my teacher's generosity, and my mom's flexible job, to get to the school by a little after eleven. I called her beforehand, and yes, she would let me take the test late. *sigh*

So, yeah. Lots of stress. x-x

Still need to finish that and another paper, though. X_x;

In other news, my birthday's on thursday! :o

Cash gifts are appreciated. kthx.

EDIT: I wanted to ask, does anyone know of any fanfiction featuring a crossover between Phoenix Wright and Detective Conan? That would be the most awesome thing ever. I want to read one. *-*

Holy fuck.

I'm now experiencing the last few hours of being seventeen years old. When the clock turns to midnight, I'll officially be an adult. My days as a kid will be officially... over. And do you know what? I'm not at all sure that I like it.

On the one hand, I'll be able to register to vote. That's a good thing. On the other, I'll have to register for the draft-- not a nice thing for a pacifist such as myself. I'll also be able to be arrested and tried as an adult; not that I plan on doing anything wrong, but it's not a terribly comforting thought at any rate. Think of it as the difference between somebody saying "Don't rob this bank," and someone saying "Don't rob this bank or I'll shoot you with this gun I'm pointing in your face." The fact that you're a good, law-abiding citizen provides little comfort. Then, there's the responsibility of being an adult; plus the thought of my comfy little high school life coming to an end in a few months. Frankly, it kinda scares me. Dammit, why can't I be excited about it like a normal human being?

I'd like to say this will mean that my dad will get off my back about stuff, but it will probably only mean an increase in the things he expects from me. I doubt he'll think of me as an adult anyway.

So what is it about the incidence of one day that makes one an adult? The obvious answer is, of course, nothing; I'm as much an adult now as I'll be when I wake up in the morning. So, should it scare me? I mean, it's not like an actual change; it's just the government looking in my direction and suddenly noticing that I'm not a kid anymore.

Now that I'm at the very verge, everything looks different. The big things look bigger, the small things look smaller. Why, for instance, am I worrying about when the next Final Fantasy or Rockman game comes out when I should be worrying about applying to college? Why am I idly reading webcomics when I've got a senior project festering in my backpack? Why am I updating my livejournal when I should be finishing my work for AP Gov? A whole bunch of whys, and not a whole lot of becauses. Will I still, as a legal adult, procrastinate and end up staying up late into the night so I'm falling asleep the next day? Will I still skirt my Sound and Sense work even though it's brought my grade down to a D? Will I keep hiding from my dad like some pigeon-hearted turtle? I don't know. I just don't know.

All I know is, I've got two lives ahead of me-- one about to end, and one just barely beginning. And I'm sure as hell not getting any younger.

The Uwajimaya trip was a resounding success. ^^
Started off with quite a while in the Kinokuniya bookstore, ogling manga and J-Pop cds. I picked up Naruto #5, and #3 and 4 of Case Closed (still looking for 2 x_x), along with a couple packs of YGO cards. Then was eating at the food court (Where I leeched off the others; Teriyaki and General Tso's Chicken rock ^^) then a little bit of running around the grocery store section, where we picked up Japanese sweets (Hi-Chew and Kinoko no Yama. Heaven.). Then, we waited around and read manga whilst munching on our spoils for the day while we waited for our ride home. We then proceeded to be geeks for a while, wherein I had my first YGO game, against Taylor. I barely survived even when she was holding back on me, but when my dad came down to remind us the pizza was getting cold, she unleashed the pwnage on my fledgeling ass and ended the game in one turn. X_X
Then came food time, after which we watched most of Van Helsing, one of the movies I got as a birthday gift earlier in the week. Everybody went home, I speed-cleaned up the mess, then watched a documentary on dragons. Because you know there's nothing good on at that time of night, silly.
Easter celebration was mostly uneventful. I'm so glad, though, that my parents are cool enough not to have to go to church on Easter sunday. Yeah, me and organized religion don't mix.

Birthday celebration was yesterday... Nothing too big, but then that's the way I wanted it. ^^
Got gifts, of course, and they weren't bad, either. Got Viewtiful Joe for the PS2 (the situation's kinda complicated, gonna return the Gamecube one and not tell them that I ever got it), a Borders gift card for $20 (Wow, arent they generous), and a new watch, which I'm wearing right now and have synchronized to the school clocks. Very useful. ^^
Not really anything besides that.

Yup, that time of year is here again... As of ~8:10 this morning. Another year, another...what? I honestly don't know. I'm not 18 yet, so there's still no hope tha my dad will back off of me. since I'm still in school now, I've yet to actually open gifts, so, still waiting for that. But, the birthday trip has been squared away, so that's good. ^^
In other news, we were talking about that lady in the almost-coma (forget her name right now) in Mythology... I can't believe that there're any people that side with her parents! I mean, come on, she's grown up now, her parents aren't responsible for that decision, plus she's married, and her husband said to take the tube out... So, where's the argument? If you ask me, the moment they sidestepped her last wish, they were no longer giving her the right to live; they're giving her an obligation to it. just let the poor woman die! >_<
Well, looks like I have to get back to class now. Ja!

If there's one thing good for the soul at the foot of a three-day weekend after a hard week, it's staying up to an ungodly hour in the morning surfing the web! ^^
My birthday's in three days, but I get to open half my presents on sunday (due to me not being able to be in two places at once). The birthday trip to Uwajimaya is steadily drawing closer, but I've still yet to make any solid plans for it... A date is set, but not a time, nor even a final list of people who are coming. >_<
Not much else to say on the whole. Except that I'm now throwing in the towel and going to bed. *clicks off light*
