After five years of being stuck at the very end, I finally beat Final Fantasy IX today.

For all that buildup... Trance Kuja and Necron were pathetically easy. All it took was a little bit of grinding and getting my strategy in order for once. (WHY did I give Steiner Auto-Float back then? Jeez no wonder I couldn't beat them before.)

Two down, nine to go

Has anyone heard of IMVU? It's an IM client where you can create your own customizable 3D avatar; a bit like Gaia, I suppose. It's kind of cheesy at times, but it's actually surprisingly fun.

Feel free to Google it and check out the site, but if you want to join, tell me here so I can use the form on the site to invite you and get referral credits. ^^; (I really want those, btw. >w<)

EDIT: OR. You could use this:

So long as you click on that, THEN register (in that same window/tab), I'll get referral credits. >w< Pliz do?

So, guess what. My friggin' power went out.

So, yeah. No internet for me. I'm at a friend of my mom's right now leeching internet, but I won't be here for long. So yeah, if you were wondering where I was... yo.

Grah. I've already missed the 2x drop event on Maple, and it's not looking too good for the 2x exp event tonight. ><;;

I hate this freaking weather...

I was about to post a brief tirade about how I put myself out there last entry and didn't even get any responses, but then I realized that... the link was broken. ^^;;;;;

SO. At the peril of my remaining dignity, I will point you back there at this time, wherein the link has been fixed. So please go there? Please?

(Have I linked it enough? XD)

...But sometimes, for the sake of the greater good, these things must be done. Sometimes one must throw one's pride to the wind for the sake of what is dear to him.

I speak of this:

I've signed up for an offer to get a free Wii. Yeah, I know, you don't need to tell me. I KNOW. >< It's one of those dealies where you sign up for a sponsor and get a certain number of other people to do the same.

Yeah, do you see why I feel like a sellout now? But damn, those things are gonna be expensive! But at least the site's legit. And a few of the offers are free-- else I wouldn't have even attempted this.

Anyways. If you guys could help me out, I'd be eternally in debt. And you can get one too if you refer other people.

Ohhhh god. I feel so DIRTY. ToT

Today marks the anniversary of a very special event.

On December 19, 1732, Poor Richard's Almanack was first published.

AND, on December 19, 2004, I created this LiveJournal. Glee. ^^

To celebrate, I may actually update this tired old layout, once the holiday season draws to a close and I take down this spiffy Christmahannukwanzakah-themed background. That is, if I'm not too lazy. ¬¬

Bi-yearly field trip to Uwajimaya is tomorrow, and I'm gonna pick up some Japanese manga while I'm there so I can translate it for my senior project. Apparently, the project proposal is good, it's just that I need to find a mentor and figure out how to document the hours.

Also, I need to get off my lazy ass and register for the SATs. The next deadline for registration is this thursday, after all. ><

On a slightly more angsty note, I may finally be able to talk to someone about being diagnosed with APD. And it only took six months, too. >.>

Anyways, stats for this LJ-Anniversary bash:

Friends: 8
Mutual Friends: 7 (You know who you are. Michael! >o<)
Communities: 16
RSS Feeds: 5
Entries to date: 70

Wow. I just found out today how much I really matter in the world.

I had planned a really fun and enjoyable day at the Puyallup Fair with my friends today. I was getting my senior pictures taken, and was running a little later than I had thought. I called Taylor a couple hours earlier to tell her I might be there by six, but wasn't sure if I'd make it. Traffic caused me to arrive about a half hour past that mark.

I had realized while the pictures were going on that I had left my free ticket at home. No big deal, I figured. I'd pay for a ticket rather than take the time to go all the way home and get it. After all, I didn't want to keep my friends waiting.

Imagine that.

Once I had paid the admission and entered the fair, I called Taylor to find out where she was.

"We're at the mall," she told me over the din of fairgoers' voices. "We left already."

I was dumbfounded. "Why didn't you call me and let me know?"

"I wasn't sure you were coming," she explained.

Apparently it wasn't important enough to be certain.

The signal died before anything more could be said. I decided to take off and wander aimlessly rather than waste the fair admission by leaving.

I suppose I should thank her. My head was getting a little big; I'd actually allowed myself to get the idea that I mattered, you see. But it's no big deal. I've grown very used to feeling insignificant, as it happens.

I'm sure you think I'm overreacting, Taylor. You would-- with that warm, fuzzy blanket of friends around you at all hours, I doubt you've ever felt unimportant in your life. But you guys were the first friends I had ever had. Oh, yes, how selfish I am to feel so rejected. Have I no shame?

But I suppose I'm a fool to act so indignant when all I want is an apology. I just hope that's not too much to ask.

Un...believable. A two-day school week (two half days and one normal), followed by a five-day weekend, and it still felt short. ;_; It's hardly going to be a day off tomorrow, because I'm going back to my dad's. I swear, I never feel like I'm enjoying myself when I'm over there; It's a terrible thing to think, I know, but it's true. I really don't want to go back.

In other news, I have a new addition to my list of favorite animes... One Piece. Pirates rock ur proverbial sox. ^.^

Tommorrow I'm getting a new mp3 player to replace the one that went boom on me a few weeks ago; but I'm doing it in exchange for weeding around the retaining wall on the edges of our backyard. It's more difficult than it sounds; the thing is like one big weed. x_x I tried to finish it off today, but the battery-powered weed-eater, which had been charging for maybe four days since its last use, went out within 5-10 minutes of my starting. X__X So, I'm going to have to actually get up at a reasonable hour tomorrow in order to finish, or at least start finishing, the job. Bah, I'll never understand you early birds.

Also-- the Stinkoman game on rocks. It rocks like nothing has ever rocked before. Play it now, 1-up commands you. ^^

A bit has happened between the last update and this one. First, I installed XP on my new computer, but now it doesn't recognize my sound card. This wouldn't be a problem if there wasn't a 90% chance that I threw away the driver disk. >_< So, being very angry at me for screwing it up, my mom told me I couldn't use this computer. Which is why I haven't updated until now.

Second, my mp3 player/flash drive went boom. And I had all the chapters of the scriptures stored on it. Which makes it a very good thing that I posted the first three chapters on here; I only had to rewrite chapter four.

Speaking of the scriptures, it may be worth it to note here that I don't use my normal writing style when I write them; I try to emulate the style I see most myths written in, just to get the myth "feel" into it. I decided after finishing chapter three that I thouroughly hate that style, so for the sake of consistency, I'll finish chapter four in it, then change back when I write the Hero Epic and Armageddon story. The former I plan to write in my normal style, and the latter will be written as a poem.

Oh, and I did end up presenting that philosophy thing. Because not presenting it would have meant an automatic zero. x_x

I've actually managed to get used to this wierd schedule... That doesn't mean I'm happy about not being able to sleep in like the other half of the students, but hey, whatever.

I managed to screw up last week's note, though. Got three out of the four signatures I needed, then gave it to Jones-sensei, and never got it back. x_x So, this weekend was kind of boring. And I managed to get a truckload of homework, even despite having only half my classes. -_-

I'm thinking now that I want to post chapter three of the scriptures... but I don't really know if I'm done making all the alterations I want to. Ah, I suppose I'll post what I have.

Chapter 3: The Development of Religion )

Yeah, this one's really short compared to the other chapters.

Over the weekend, I had to do a homework assignment for Mythology on my philosophy concerning good and evil. It was, despite all expectations, kind of fun. >_< Never thought I'd be saying that about something we were assigned in Mythology. Anyways, I borrowed a little bit from what has now earned the name "Sartenian Philosophy", which is not intrinsically related to my myths, but rather it's philosophy I came up with while inventing the myths. I just may post a little exposé on it later on, cuz I'm actually kind of proud of it. ^^
...however, I'm supposed to present it in front of class on tuesday. Which I plan on refusing to do.

Okay, got the chapter now. This one explains not only the origin of Humans, but of reptiles, hell, sexism, stuff like that... it may be worth it to note that this does not condone sexism, just attempts to explain where it came from. The first chapter was two pages or less, but this one's three and a half. x_x

Chapter 2: The Creation of Humans )

I may post chapter 3 some time in the near future, too.

Gah. I'm not even taking the WASL, and it's still ruining my life. The rest of the juniors and seniors get to sleep in until school starts at 10:00 on testing days. But me? Dear me, no, that would be good. No, I don't have a means of getting to school at 10:00, because the busses still run normally. So, I have to hang out in the computer lab for the three hours that the sophomores are taking the test. And we can't get caught using the internet for anything non work-related. So what did I do today? I finished two chapters of the Sartenian Scriptures. That's a lot of fucking writing. And there's only 7 more days of that. joy.

I'll probably be posting chapter 2 of the Scriptures tomorrow. Otherwise, I don't really have anything else to say at the moment. Mostly because school lets out in less than a minute, and I don't have time to say anything else anyways.
majutsukai: (Default)
I got up at about 8:00 today thinking for some reason that it was 11:00. x_x
So... I'm tired.

I was sorta wrong about my cold... it's still steadfastly clinging on. The stuffiness isn't quite as bad as it used to be, but I still have a very annoying cough.

As for the field trip... meh. I didn't bring any money, and I didn't take the time to look at every individual thing there, so it was kind of a dissapointment.

In other news... for the first time in a while, I've actually taken time out to work on Project Oracle a little bit. ^^ I just may try shocking the masses by updating the site next. :P

Would have shown you the content for the update here, but the people that run Angelfire are selfish bastards that keep all their web content to themselves. ;_;

Uh... Wow?

Amazingly enough, I have actually been able to breathe through my nose for most of the day today... I don't want to jinx it, but it actually seems like my cold will be gone in time for the SakuraCon field trip tomorrow. ^^

Yeah, today was a late start. Went to bed an hour later than usual, and got up two. Life... is good. ^^ So, naturally, here I am goofing off in second period, directly contrary to my screaming conscience. That means that I will probably be getting back to work soon.

By the way, I never mentioned that my creation myth was presented earlier this week. I use a passive verb form because, since I was unwilling to present it myself, Ms. King read it herself. Yeah, it may be difficult to understand if you're not a writer, but that kind of thing is hard for me... It was a piece that I came up with and wrote entirely as an out-of-school writing project, so a lot of the ideas in it are very personal... add to that the fact that it basically is, unintentionally, a bash on christian beliefs, when I'm 99.9% sure that a few of my Mythology classmates are christian, and I just couldn't do it. However, people seemed to like it, even though I have more than a few complaints about how she read it: She mispronounced the names of the two main deities, Sartenia and Arkelis, and she pretty much read it in the same almost-monotone that she reads the textbook myths in. And also, when she read the part about Arkelis "laugh[ing] nervously", she let out a very loud, not to mention decidedly un-nervous sounding, laugh, that induced me to wince a little. Such an act had no precedent or follow up, fortunately.

So, yeah. I've got some code documentation to be done by the end of the period, since I can't turn it in tomorrow while at SakuraCon. Out!

My energy, drive, and desire to succeed have all taken a sick day.

Why, you ask?

Because the demon known as the common cold has deigned to pay me another unwanted visit. I swear, by the end of the day, my nose will shrivel up and fall off from disuse. ;_;

I just wish I could have stayed in bed today... But my conscience, in tandem with my lack of desire to ruin the perfect attendance record I've faithfully kept up for about four and a half years now keeps me from doing it. Yeah, that pesky conscience thing. It'll pay off some day, I know, but right now all I can see through this tunnel vision is oxygen deprivation from lack of air through the nose. *snrk*

Please, somebody invent a cure ;_;

OK, here's the deal.
I've always had a fair amount of interest in mythology. That's why, since last semester, I've been working on my own set of myths based on my beliefs and values. In light of a recent assignment in Mythology class, which requires us to create our own creation myth, I decided to put some of the ideas in writing.
It's difficult to understand some of it without knowing the backstory. I've heard several theories being thrown around about how if there's a real god in heaven, he's evil. So, I thought to myself, "How would that work?", and Sartenian mythology was born. I eventually drifted away from that original idea, since one of the primary philosophies in Sartenian mythology is that there is no such thing as real evil. However, I've written enough in it that I've decided to share it with the world. so, submitted for your approval, I present to you:
Chapter One: The Creation of the Universe, and of Life )
As you can probably tell, I meant it also to be a unification and explanation of all the world's mythologies. You can expect a chapter on the development of religion later on. But the next chapter is the creation of humans, which I'm almost finished with.

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.
majutsukai: (Default)
Classes are all squared away. It's a weird feeling, knowing that all my classes until graduation are now predetermined, set in stone; also slightly unsettling, because it makes graduation seem that much closer. o.o
Yeah. So, first semester I have: Contemporary World, AP English, Intro to Psychology, and Japanese IV. For second semester: Web Design, You and the Law, AP English, and Japanese V. Not necessarily in that order. For alternatives: Poetry, Chemistry, and Media & Society.
Seems that plans for the trip tomorrow have hit an unexpected hitch... Joey, one of my friends that's going along, hasn't been in school lately, so making plans as far as he's concerned has become somewhat complicated.
hoi... *yawn* How can I feel this tired this early? -_- School is the only feasible explanation.
majutsukai: (Default)
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.
majutsukai: (Default)
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!
