today and a bit about the vacation..  
I take it back about hating Phoenix weather... I don't hate it all the time. One of the few times that I am severely in love with the weather is right now. It's a warm 66 degrees, and there's barely a cloud in the sky. It's nearly tank top weather.. and easily t-shirt weather. Plus, they cut the grass recently and it smells just like spring. I can also hear birds chirping and smell a bit of a flowery scent. Spring is my favorite time of the year by far, for these reasons.. and it seems to be springtime in Phoenix already, at least for today. ^__^ Yes, I miss the snow that I just came back from, but this weather is incomparable. It makes me want to sit outside for a number of hours and just enjoy it..

which I think that I'll do.

In other news, not so dreamy news.. I received my school schedule today. I had to pay them a rather large chunk of money to get it, but isn't that always the case? *shrugs* My schedule really really sucks this semester for a few reasons.. but there's also a good omen in that 1- I have a class with Elvy (yay!), 2- I only have three days of classes, and 3- I only have to take 4 classes. This means more time to work on things that are important to me, and on my final portfolio as well. ^__^ Bad omen includes that I have a class on Saturday afternoons and I will have to miss anime club for it. I might have to give up my officer's position because of it, but we'll see... I'd rather keep it as long as I can! ^^

I have a few things to do today.. I must finish up the cover for Talon's doujinshi project... that should be interesting. I know that I'm late with it, but I still haven't gotten the dimensions from her. I'll have to try and catch her over AIM later on today... X_x For now I'm just going to go for 8.5 x 11... That's my best guess.

I also have to pick up cat food, cat litter (nobody cleaned it while I was away...which is not surprising..), and a few other things.. I might go and pick up some ramune too at the japanese store down the road.

Oh, I've gotten my JET confirmation in the mail. It says that I should be receiving a letter about the end of the month regarding my status, and until then I'm not allowed to call or ask about it... >.<... I think that they want to keep us in suspense.. maybe because some of the candidates will go insane, and they won't have to choose between as many? ^^;; *dies* I'm waiting in anticipation, to be sure! This is my future that I'm talking about.. I may also apply to Nova, though I think that I'll wait to hear back from the JET Program first.

Mm yes... and the proverbial blurb about the vacation. I had a blast... A blast isn't even the best way to say it.. let's just say that I had soooo much fun! I saw a lot of old friends and even made a new one or two! It makes me happy! There's only one thing that really makes me go... ehh. And that is what Karen (deltethnia) lovingly referred to as the "Jamie effect." I won't go into detail.. but it makes things a little confuddling at times. I suppose that I'm just naturally friendly. I talked to a friend about it last night and he said that it's probably because I'm so accepting of others as they are.. Moreso than normal, I guess... I'm pretty sure that this is a good thing, though it still can make life hard at times. ^.^;; Oh well... I will just have to make extra careful that people don't take my affection the wrong way. I won't ever stop being friendly, especially to new people.

But yeah.. fun! I had so much fun! I've been aching to go back for the last two days, but right now I'm getting back into the Phoenix swing of things. I can't wait to see all of my friends here again.. particularily soundsoft_elvy, athenazandrite, hitokiri_naveed, kawaii_gurl, and mawaruko. I also rather want to see if Jason is up to doing something soon too! ^^

Oh, and Wally has influenced me to start walking to get in shape. I'm starting bright and early tomorrow morning. Getting in shape is definitely high on my list of things to do.

XD and apparently I missed a number of things that happened in weissdiaries. Heheee... I go away and miss out on all the fun, ne? XD Well, Nagi gets to beat up on Ken today, so that definitely makes up for it! XD

Mmm... X_x one bad thing is that I lost a lot of the pictures from the first half of the trip. I still hold out hope of finding them, but we'll see. I have pictures from the other half (mostly snow), some of which I'll post later on! ^.^

You'll have to come over sometime and give give me a demo or two on Maya. >_>;;;; I just got a three button mouse this weekend, and once I finish my last question for my winter course, I'm going to try to start some tutorials in my book for Maya. XD

Here's what the Chocolate Kiss forum looks like right now, let me know what you think.

WAhh!!! I meant to reply to your journal about this yesterday.. but I LOVE it! The design is just sooooo cute! I have this strange urge to redesign the main page to match with that color scheme and style.. and it's a strong urge.......

*huggles* But yes, I love it! And the names of the forums fit in perfectly!!

LOL Sure! I have two Maya classes this semester.. X_x It would be my pleasure to spread the knowledge to you. ^^

XD Thanks, actually, I think it would be fun to change the board every now and then to have different designs all named appropriately, White Chocolate Special, Dark Chocolate Special, etc.. Love your new icon btw!

I would also like to do the link page. XD I'll show you how I've imagined it. *goes to find old project for school* http://www.public.asu.edu/~tmcguir/Jukebox/board.htm

As for whatever day you can come over this week, I'll leave that to Athena XD

Wahh! That's so cute! That link page is adorable! You're more than welcome to design a page like that! =^__^=

Yeah.. I'll bump heads with Athy and we'll come up with a good time to socialize.. I'll bring Battle Royale too if it's arrived in the mail! ^.^

X_x no redesign-y. Bad Hi-chan. No good to keep redesigning and never putting anything up :P When are you free?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 12th, 2004 03:13 pm (UTC)
