When the plan goes wrong, you start back at the beginning.

Current Song: Tommy February6 - Lonely in Gorgeous
Current Mood: Curious, confused and cute~ (How's that for alliteration?)

Here's a quiz for everyone~

The Maid of Honor
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMf)

Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor.

Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a "perfect catch"--and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You're careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you.

Your exact opposite:

Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
We've deduced you're fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you respect...so you can respect yourself.

Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You're just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them.

ALWAYS AVOID: The False Messiah, The 5-Night Stand, The Vapor Trail, The Bachelor

CONSIDER: The Gentleman, someone just like you.

It also said this about me:

Stability results were low which suggests you are very worrying, insecure, emotional, and anxious.

Orderliness results were low which suggests you are overly flexible, improvised, and fun seeking at the expense too often of reliability, work ethic, and long term accomplishment.

Extraversion results were medium which suggests you are moderately talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting.

trait snapshot:

messy, irritable, depressed, fragile, worrying, emotionally sensitive, does not like to lead, phobic, weird, suspicious, low self control, paranoid, frequently second guesses self, dependent, unproductive, introverted, weak, strange, unassertive, submissive, familiar with the dark side of life, feels invisible, rash, vain, anti-authority, heart over mind, low self concept, disorganized, not good at saving money, avoidant, daydreamer, unadventurous.

So yeah, I don't know how I feel about this Quiz...it doesn't have much nice to say about me >.<

"Kocchi wo muite yo, honey~"

Current Song: Hikaru Utada - Exodus
Current Mood: Lazy

So, blogger, eats the soul of the french language for breakfast *points to title of previous post* Oh well.

So, this is my first blog post from my very new computer~ It's very exciting and raveful with all it's pretty lights. I've already made a promise of holding a DDR party by the light of my colourful computer~

This week has been the weirdest week of my life... it's like a shoujo manga. Not much to tell, but yeah, crazy emotional roller coaster.

My knitting skills are pretty atrocious, but I really like the monotony. Not only does it help clear the mind and relieve stress, it also creates fashionable winter-wear (at least, one day it will)

Here's a terrible picture of my washcloth I'm knitting (taken with my cell phone). Can anyone spot the horrible mistake in the middle? Good thing it's a washcloth and not a sweater, though I've promised to make Kevin an ugly sweater and the worse the better, he says. For some reason, I think he'll regret that when I actually produce a horrible 70's coloured sweater and is forced to wear it in public.

So, a Nintendo Rep fell in love with Lance (and his Xbox 360 bashing skills) and I happened to be working at the time. Lucky! Anyways, the guy brought us some free Nintendo swag~ I got some fuzzy mushroom dice, a sweet lanyard, a wristband and a shirt...that fits! All the shirts that EB gets in are always XL, and I was complaining about that, so the Nintendo rep brought me and old school Donkey Kong 'Party Animal' shirt that's actually made for girls~ I love it!

I think that's all the news for today...

Oh yeah, my roses never bloomed...they stayed in their closed state and then just died. How sad for the roses and myself.

End of Line~

Current Song: Tommy February6 - Lonely in Gorgeous
Current Mood: Good~

I'm very excited to start knitting on Tuesday, at least, hopefully my instructor remembers this time. I've already planned the first things I knit if my skills allows. I want a nice pair of green mittens (but a certain green, I'm very picky about these mittens), a DS cozy (with the signature Panda-monium Panda if Megan and I ever figure out what that is), and a sweater like this one but not exactly the same, of course. I can't forget the Harry Potter scarf. It seems like I'll be making Harry Potter scarves sometime. Hopefully when I'm skillful.

I have some lovely roses here and I really want them to bloom and be pretty...but then they'll just die. I'm sort of torn~

Well, I don't really have much to say so I'm going to jet.

It's that angsty time of year again T_T

Current Mood: Sad
Current Song: Nothing

So, today is my Dad's 5 year death-day, so like every good daughter, I used it as an excuse to skip Chinese class and eat Edo with some friends from Japanese. Now that the frivolities of the group Edo lunch outing is done, I feel very sad about the whole thing.

I've decided not to throw a birthday party this year since I'm finding the planning of the party to be stressful in this time of already high stress and I just have no time. I have essays and quizzes next week and then the week after I have another midterm. November is that doomy time of year.

Also, my Film Studies essay is eating my soul. My prof shot down my essay topic hardcore. I almost felt like crying in front of him. I also feel very stupid since I forgot everything that I was planning on saying to him, so I was standing there "um" ing and "uh"ing.

And NOW I have to start getting ready for work. I just need some time to sit down and think >.<
