unij: YOU BET KID (need normal people close)
Final project: Video edited, paper written, lecture prepared, presentation given, class entertained. Heck yeah.

I'm glad I don't get stage fright bad enough to mess with how I want to do my presentations. I can understand how some people need to have a powerpoint with all their details written down for them, or else they'll forget things and it'll be too much pressure. But for me, that's boring to watch and boring to present. I need to entertain people, and get involved, make things funny and interesting. If possible, I like to put on a sort of skit-like aspect in my presentation. It gets peoples' attentions, and actually makes people want to ask questions, which in turn makes me feel better. My heart may start going crazy and I get nervous when I get in front of everyone, but at least the adrenaline is being put into something.

In unrelated news augh my hair keeps getting in my face and is impossible to make look good at this length but I want to grow it out for cosplay-based purposes ugggh the conflict of practicality vs. fashion

I'm spending today reading fanfics, apparently. It's actually turned out pretty hilarious.

...and then I fed some cats. It's a Persona 4 fic about how Souji writes to his girlfriend in the city... and is completely honest about everything that's been happening in Inaba. I love the interpretation of Souji in this, a complete airhead who truly means well. It's adorable and hilarious, and strangely fitting. (There's also a joke about language differences in the middle of an X-Files reference. I am a nerd for little details like that.)

Apparently my parents are moving. I mean, my dad has been super excited for a week or so about this house not too far up the hill from us, with a fabulous view and not much else. But Dad doesn't get excited about much, so despite Mom's reservations she let him go ahead and start looking, but we were thinking--and kind of hoping--that it would fall through. But it sounds like things are getting serious. It's not a far move, but packing up and cleaning up our place for sale is a big process. And, on top of that, my sister just... two days ago, I guess, got an offer with a friend to share an apartment. She's been really wanting to move out lately, with how nuts Mom can get, so she's thrilled to take it up. Weird how these things line up, I guess.

Okay, I don't know why, but for some reason watching playthroughs of Persona 4 is something I find hilarious. I swear I've watched the same 4 hours of opening plot with three different comedy tracks. I found the guys who did the Endurance Run and it is cracking me up. I am a loser.

Pokemon news: Red is a bastard with ridic-level pokemon and I had my butt handed to me. I managed to get through 4 of his six, but that was with spamming hyper potions the whole way and getting a lot of help from the hail. Also I had to sacrifice one of my main 6 in order to use Rock Climb. This is why I hate HMs.

Day 06: A song that reminds you of someone

Back in 2nd or 3rd grade, I had a friend who I would hang out with all the time, with weekly playdates. Whenever she came to my house, we'd bust out the Beanie Babies and play with them while my clock-CD player went on in the background. I didn't have a very evolved taste in music back then, all my CDs were cartoon and movie soundtracks, and the Rugrat Movie one the leading one for that time. She ended up going to live overseas for a year, and by the time she got back we had grown apart. We were still classmates up through high school, but never really hung out since. It happens.

Soooo, had my conference with my teacher about my first draft, but it turns out that mine is one of the three that he hasn't gotten to read yet. Thanks, Big D. He gave it a glancethrough, though, while we talked, and commented that it looked pretty strong so far. I've got more sources to go off of right now, as well, so hopefully this won't be much of an issue.

And hey, maybe if I didn't procrastinate so much, I could get in a second draft that he could look over before the final is due and get more feedback.

I'm not sure who I think I'm kidding with that line of thought though.

My buddy [livejournal.com profile] childofthemoor  let me borrow her PS2 so hopefully I can pick up my Persona playing, which I am satisfied with. I maxed out my social link with Brosuke today. It was epic manly. Next in line, Chie. B|b

Ummm jeez what else can I say. I'm mostly updating just because it's been a while and Ma likes it when I do these things.

...it is so weird having Franky and Hajime as my most active muses. Enjoyable, though. Hopefully plot with the Ouenkid can start up within the week...?

...I think that's it.


These make me so happy. Sorry for breaking anyone's internet.

So today was pretty awesome.

Most important was learning that my teachers think I'm awesome. I went in to talk about my evaluation today--at Evergreen, we don't get grades, just evaluations of how you performed during the quarter--and my teacher basically said that she and the other teacher feel lucky to have me in the class. They think I'm talented, insightful, creative, and interesting. There are students in the class texting, or falling asleep, but seeing someone like me who really works and enjoys it helps them keep in mind why they came out of retirement.

I have the awkward cross of an easily-inflated ego being kept down with constant personal reminders of shortcomings. You could say that learning this has been a happy little push to the former.

That aside, I suddenly received a package today from my uncle containing Glee: Volume 1, which is awesome and had songs I had not yet stolen online. I also finally got the Random Shirt from Shirt!Woot, though I don't get it at all.

Also, continuing with adventures in Persona 4, the ~bad bad bathhouse~ level has a while yet to go, but in the meantime I got to show my friend the first two episodes of One Piece. She already thinks Luffy is a hilarious character, which is a very good sign.

So yes, I am pleased with the events of the day 8D

Okay guys so I finally have started looking into Persona

Like a few days ago I started reading a Let's Play for Persona 2 Eternal Punishment, it's decent interesting and Katsuya is the sort of BAMF I could see myself RPing some day in the future.

And today a friend brought over her playstation and her Persona 4 to let me start a file

=D It's hilarious. I don't know why I'm so entertained by a game that makes pee jokes and swears but I am. The voice acting is pretty great, even if it takes its time in letting you do anything. Yousuke is an amazing derp and Chie's kind of a crybaby for such a badass.

arrrgh this is the result of me not having the cool systems I miss out on cool stuff ._.
