I've been reading a lot of blogs lately--xppinkx, xsparkage, faffinet, etc-- a lot of make up and style blogs coming from the lovely, all knowing internet gurus. Now, by no means am I a guru or fashionista but I think I know a but about things. So I want to do like make up looks in my blog updates just whenever I get bored.
Gah, my leg's asleep >///<
I'll probably do a really pretty rainbow one next time I update. This weekend. I always get a thousand questions on how I do the look or just what I use. So, if anyone reads this they'll be in the know.
Life's been on a bit of a downward spiral since last weekend. Another set of my friends have hooked up thanks to me =,='
I have to put my dog down today and well I'm just not up to living at the moment.
BLARG! Well I'm going to go read some and then go to my next class.

Later Days!

Wow it's been 15 or so days since I last updated you my cute little blog. Sorry. :[
I've been busy, or busy avoiding. Something like that.
I haven't really been doing all that much to say I'm busy but I have been keeping a steady pace at school and just keeping my room clean. They seem the two most important tasks at the moment. Soon, I'll be dealing with visiting my family. D:
God, Jesus, I can hear it now.
"What the fuck did you do to your face? What the hell is that in your ear? Have you lost your mind!? Don't you care about your body and what people think of it?"
Obviously not. =.=
Since I've gotten my nose and industrial done I've gotten more compliments or some people, those who are blind, have told me they don't even notice them if I didn't point them out.
But my family will have something to say. Sharing their views as if I had stuck the damn jewelry through their bodies not mine.
No compliments coming from that group, no.

So that two weeks should be fun. If I make it to a computer maybe I'll do updates on how miserable I am. And maybe how loud the yelling got.
I'm in school, Blog, my eyes done a deep plum to bring out the blue and grey in my eyes. Sweatshirt over an old falling apart choir shirt and a pair of jeans that annoy the living piss out of me. Overall I'm comfy beyond measure! :]
I've been thinking that I'm ignoring my journal, which I swore I wouldn't, and I feel bad. I can't bring myself to write in it. It seems such a brutal task when I sit down to do it. I'd much rather blog or just type it up. I'm not sure why.
Technology wins once again. :[

I might be posting some pictures in my blog starting next post. Wow. =.=
But none the less it may happen.

But I'm going to go for now and jamm out some more before my next class.

15 Days

It has been approximately 15 days since I last updated my blog. Shame on me! I know, but oh well.
I have commitment issues I'm sure.
Things that have happened lately:
  • I've lost part of my big toe nail. Ouch.
  • Almost popped my kneecap out of socket.
  • Bruised my knee all to hell.
  • Lost 10 lbs.
  • Colored my hair.
  • Bought things: Hair stuff, new nail polish, and a stress ball.
  • Carved my first pumpkin.
I've been busy. I thought I would update things keeping everyone in the loop.

Lets start off with my new "de-stressing" ball. It's green and about the size of a baseball, and says Peace. :D The scent of lavender is released when you squeeze it too, one of my favorites. I'm excited to just mess with it!
Things have been fairly simple, less homework, Japan planning has been slow to none, and for the most part I've been relaxed. Except for the various injuries. D:
My English paper is not really coming on but I'll wing it since it's due in a week and a half. I'm amazing sometimes. I think there's really nothing else to write. I need more topics more drama.


Sunday, October 12, 2008


Time has flown by me once again! It's been almost two months since I updated my blog. I neglect things.
D: Sorry my little blog, to repay my not being here-ness I redid your layout to something more plain and like you. I hope you like it!

What have I been soo busy with that I couldn't remember to check my blog?
Well, life in general.
It's true that I only have three "real" or academic classes this year but in total I spend about 9 hours at school everyday. I believe it is wearing me down a bit, but nothing more than I can handle. Chris, weirdo, says I work too much. I don't believe I am though. Personally I don't have a job or any strenuous work that takes over my time. It's more like I have a lot of little things that just end up, well, adding up by the end of the day!

I've been seeing more of Anjy and Heather lately, which to my moods have been very helpful and de-stressing. When anything goes wrong or gets over stressful for me I just vent and either get told that it will be okay or to shut up and just take it. Some of the greatest advice a Gemini like me could ever get would be to shut my mouth from time to time. Ha! Now, whether I take that advice or not is really the problem.
Anjy and myself have been planing out trip to Japan. It's going splendid! We have an accurate calculation of how much the trip will cost, how many jobs/hours we will have to work at a"x" amount of pay, and how many months till we leave. Our trips date is October 2011. It seems like a far away dream just hearing the date, but to think we really only have 29 months to come up with over 20,000 dollars, give or take a few months because of deadlines, it scary!
Before then the things I want to accomplish are: To learn how to ride a bike(Don't laugh I never learned. D: ), loose some weight so I can buy cute clothes while I'm there (Ha!), and to learn more about Japans history and culture.

I've been watching a lot of anime lately, trying to finish things up that I got from Otakon back in August. Sadly I'm still not making a dent! I still have A whole season of anime I haven't unwrapped and a complete series that I still have to borrow from Anjy! I'm never going to finish!
I'm also looking forward to a movie that will come out in the USA in January 2009. It's called Red Cliff. It's a Chinese movie that is based on an epic tale of the Battles of Red Cliffs that happened right at the end of the Han Dynasty and before the Three Kings period. I've been listening to a song from the movie that is from a Chinese artist named Alan. This girls voice is amazing and the orchestra that plays behind her are, well, I'm at a loss of words. She sings the original song in Chinese for the film but it is in Japanese too, if anyone would prefer to listen to it that way.

Now for a transition to school.
Ah, school. Somehow I was hoping that it would change, and it has a bit but nothing substantial. People are crowding everywhere as normal but there is now a surplus of emo, goth, and "confused" kids. It's sickening to see these kids! Now do NOT get me wrong, I love clothing styles and how ridiculous they can get sometimes. (I adore how people who are my size look like total fuck ups and wear things that look like they should fit a size three. I think that notion is HILARIOUS.) But for all these little kids to be running around sleeping with 15 different people and then getting depressed about it is just utterly annoying. There are so many fake people at Fleming now. I miss Reginald,who, no matter what, was original in his style. I miss Brandon, who could sing and not be conceded. I miss Anjy who didn't care what people thought about her clothing styles and she still looked like a goddess. I miss Fatima who was the epitome of prep style but was so relatable and never looked down on anyone!
I just think it's horrible to be those kids, the ones I see following trends that will screw their lives over and over and over again till there's nothing left.
Some days I want to yell at the top of my lungs:
I don't say anything though, I wonder if the world would be better off if I did speak my mind? All I know is that most of my friends wouldn't be associates with me anymore. They'd probably hate me. Yes, HATE.

An Orange Life, my blog has been so left bare that I thought I would write a lot here at once. Some people might think that I got the name of my blog from my favorite color, I didn't. Orange, to me, seems a very bright and open color. A color that won't be stopped by boundaries. I won't be constricted! So, anyone has a right to read anything I type and I have have the right to type it.

So I decided to sign

So I decided to sign up for mobile blogger, how lazy. Haha. Maybe this way I might be able to keep up with my blog, I hope I stop neglecting it.


I'm able to look back on my "non stop working life" and find one thing remarkable: I had no time to be depressed. Which is a wonder, I didn't see much of my friends, didn't get more than 4 hours of sleep a day, and didn't get that much time to spend on things I cared about. Now that I have that time I seem to be doing nothing more than looking for well, more time. I'm not sure what I really wanted to accomplish with having this extra time, maybe work on my figure or spend more time with friends. I'm really selfish I hope you all know.
I hope that this year I improve myself a bit.
I've been listening to more mellow music these days, just kind of chilling. I'm also thinking it would be amazing to be one of those hippy types, well I'd definitely have to bathe more than the orginial hippy's did. Ick, haha. That really wouldn't be me in the end, I kinda like who I am and what I dress like, bad taste suits me. So do headaches and medical problems apparently. I love my life!

So I got the ultrasound today that I've been trying to get for three weeks, it hurt. It "technically" wasn't supposed to but it did and I couldn't talk through it so no one but me really knew about the pain. Haha, sometimes I sound soo dramatic. But I feel like being dramatic so fuck it!
I hope school starts sooner than it really does. I miss the contact of others.

Ummm, other than that the only thing I have to say is that I'm going to have so start sending the updates from my phone in picture messages because they get more text and I'm never brief.

Otakon... is here!

So the time finally arrives where I can spaz out, again, with over 20,000 people that have the same interests in common as I do! Otakon. Tomorrow I plan on taking the train up at around 5-6am to Baltimore, Md. The train ride is going to be interesting. I'm going with 5 of my very closest friends: Maggie, Anjy, Tucker, Nick, and James. Maggie, who is almost the equivalent to a puppy on crack or Naruto. Anjy, who is very smexy and will kick your ass if needed. Tucker who has the attention span of a three year old and feelings that are more complicated than a girls brain. Nick who is kinda laid back, kinda too excited to really express things. And James, who is all around quiet and likes to pick on me. So the guest list is very broad and all out to get me.
Ummm, I'm soo excited that this is happening an dis finally here! Today I'm going to get off of work in approximately three hours, go home and pack, take a shower, go to sleep for a little while, and then get up and do girl stuff with Anjy and Maggers, IE facials and nails ;D.
Then Nick is coming over and then James and maybe Tucker will get there before we leave, I'm still not sure whats going on with his car situation. Is he driving is he not? I just don't know anymore. But when we get there we'll check into the Hotel and get situated for a moment then go over to the convention center and pick up our passes so everything can be enjoyed.

What is even more amazing is how many people will be in Baltimore 9-10th.
First and foremost there is the Convention which ranges 20-28,000 people.
Second, The Virgin Mobile Festival is being held at Pimlico race track August 9th and 10th. Luckily it’s something like 4 or 5 miles from the harbor area, but that still means a lot of people. It had an attendance of 74,000 over two days, though many are reaped counting I would guess.
Third they are commissioning the $1.3 billion destroyer USS Sterett on August 9th, and that’s expected to bring 5,000 people and that's happening right there in the harbor.
Forth the Baltimore Orioles will be playing home games all three days of the convention at near by Camden Yards.
So ALL in all there will probably be around 100,000 people crowding the streets of Baltimore this weekend!!

Not to mention on my schedule there are 5 more people coming down from Pennsylvania to join our group in our hotel rooms. Can you say 11 teens and young adults in two hotel rooms? HAHAHAHA!
So there is my major update. Not all that much but it is very exciting for me and our group.
I hope the train ride will be fun......... oh and as my 365 picture life goes... I'm not sure if I took a jpg yesterday, I slept for forever. ;D

Lots of love.

365 Days

Oh and I almost forgot! I'm going to be starting a 365 day picture diary. Yes, that's right one picture a day for a year. I got the idea from Amiee and I'm excited about it. Hopefully I'll commit to it, I'm not very good at that, but I'll try. :D
So the first picture I'll post in a little while, once I'm home. I'll post it on here and myspace. I might be late on a few which I'm sorry for, but I doubt anyone really follows this like crazy so it's all good.

Short, Sweet, and Exciting.

It's almost painful as I await these 7 days till Otakon! So far I've gotten a great discount on my two rooms and my train tickets. (Thanks Anjy for the train!!) This trip is going to be quite, if I do say so, AMAZING. So far the crew is as follows: Anjy, Tucker, Nick, Maggie, James, and myself. Then on the 10th, since the con ends early Melissa, Mary, JD, Jake, and Jessie are coming down to spend the last night of our trip with us! So far everything has been planned out and now it is time to finialise and pack. Which is probably the easiest thing we've had to do, as far as this trip goes.
Ahh, short post. Sorry, I'm tired.

Liime something...

If you work at Hotel Roanoke you do! :D

I have realized in the almost year of working at the Hotel Roanoke that the hotel industry as a whole is screwed. No one communicates, almost everyone is incompetent, the help is a failure as a whole, and people who can't manage do at hotels for more money than they ever should be paid. When the front desk is being sympathetic, they really aren't. When we make things complimentary for you we really aren't, we're just charging you on something else. When we can't find you package, luggage, basket, room keys, money, id, or reservation, we're lying and just don't feel like looking. That's the truth, and also just to let you know, we all talk behind your back and call you a bitch as soon as you walk away from the desk. Then we smile, very wide. The hotel business makes you a very two-faced person, it's like the reservations are soaked in sin. Yum.
28 days left of working at Hotel Roanoke. :D
So just recently, on my way home from work today actually, I stopped at GoMart and grabbed some chips and a drink, after realizing that I didn't have my debit card, and used my last $5 to buy my dinner/breakfast. Oddly enough I grabbed a strange bag of chips, they were Doritos that are a mystery taste. Well I'm definitely liking them and I just can't place the taste. It has lime in it for sure but its a kind of crazy taste. I'd say in between fruit loops, pickles, and limes. Odd little bastards. They are highly addictive too.

Not Sleeping

So this is my first update in a loooong while. I know, I'm a bad blogger. Oh well, I'll get over it. Life's been busy lately with working and working and working and well, you guessed it, working. So far I'm transferring and spending money like the world is going to end tomorrow. I have to admit, it's a wonderful feeling. Currently I am also working on the information packet for my group that's going to Otakon. Fourteen pages and still a few more to write. ^.^
Home and Health
Currently in my house hold we have Ramen and water. That's about the extent of my meals for the past two weeks. My mother and I have been working sooo much that it's really been a pain to go anywhere other than work. July 19th is Mom's birthday! WhooHoo! My sleep practices have evened out, slowing to a good and uneven 5 hours a day for work. I'm surviving and thats what matters! I currently went to the doctor to get my Thyroid tested because of this problem and that. My doctor is completely convened that I have a thyroid disorder or problem or it's inflamed or goodness knows what. So after giving them three viles of my blood, and a prego test (why? not sure) I still have to go to the hospital to have an ultrasound on my throat. Loooovely. More or less, I have problems! :D
Otakon- aFUCKINGmazing. August8-10.
Nodame Cantabile - Very spiffy, Live action or anime is amazing.
WebComics: <-- Very amazingly funny comic, Wiccan and Pagan based.

Summer. Haha.

Summer really isn't summer until you hang out with your friends on a trampoline at night talking about sex. Well that hasn't happened this year! :]
No surprise. I've been working, slowly loosing my mind, that sorta thing, you know the kind of stuff you're thankful that you don't do. So far this summer, "they" have discovered water on mars, gay marriage is legal in Cali, and George Carlin has died. I say we have a winner! As many of you know the discovery of water on Mars is almost old news as fast as it has gotten around the internet so, unlike some sloooow people, everyone knows what that could mean. Yes, that's right kiddies, possible
Martians! The fist gay couple to be married was old, they have been gay all the way back to a time it would have been viscous to be gay. Finally the tards who hate gay people are going to be out of California, wait... does that mean they're coming here??? Noooo. D: Naaa, Virginia has too many otakus. Haha.
Mr.George Carlin died Sunday from heart failure at the age of 71. Poor bastard, he was amazing and taught that your opinion was right as long as it agreed with his opinion of right. He will be missed!


And because I have a lot of house work to do I have nothing else to say!

I officially just finished the new Laurell K. Hamilton book, Blood Noir, and it was great. The book seemed a little short at times and somethings were summarized even though I would have preferred them to be written out but I understand because of time constraints and quotas, etc. Choir is fun in all but books are better by far. Somehow they manage to take you away and never drop you till the end. I can see even now Anita, Jason, & Crispin in my imagination. Damn them for not being real. I have noticed that Laurell K. Hamilton and Anita Blake are quite similar in appearance. Strange huh? No. One thing that kind of pissed be off in the book though, if you have been reading the story you'll know what I'm talking about, is that Anita takes away Richards anger/hate/rage. Yes, Richard is in this book. Amazing. But, she takes away his anger and stuff and then almost jumps his bones. I was like "Wait, wait, wait! You've been hate/loving each others since the middle of the series. How can she just take away his rage and then they're all lovey dovey again? This is Bull!" I soon realized after reading on that it was actually the ardeur bringing them together, ha. Laurell K. Hamilton is a perfectly, remarkable writer. Thank you again for another good story about Anita. Oh and as a side note, Crispin is a weretiger, white tiger to be precise, there is also Alex, who is a normal weretiger, who comes into the story. Yay!
I go to work again today so I might do another update from there because Bruce has yet to track me down about visiting websites! Somehow I don't believe he will.
All the seniors that are graduating this year are amazing. I think they are all holding their emotions very well. As the date grows nearer for them to walk across that stage I think it becomes increasingly harder to fight off these emotions. Relief, terror, sadness, loneliness, and just plain craziness! These people are showing up, most of them, and just living like nothing is really going to change or happen. It just plain amazes me! I think knowing what I do and living what I have I'm going to be a complete wreck close to graduation, every emotion will flow through me! I think this summer will be a prime opportunity for me to plan a senior prank as well. Haha.
The theater is completely quite when all the students are gone. So far its just the noise of the florescent lights, my typing, and the occasional tick from the clock. I don't know if it's peaceful or eerie. Stages and classrooms are supposed to be filled with sound it means they are filled with happiness and life. Without these noises everything is dead and unused. How horrible. But the theater quiet sometimes is not such a bad thing, it means it isn't being abused for skipping purposes or being torn apart by one of the many theater geeks like myself. Most days I'm more of a Choir freak though, ha ha. Just sitting here in Turners room watching the flags blow and hearing myself typing is utterly relaxing. I guess its more of a hopeful, peaceful feeling here now. Our choir got their new risers today, thank you Cyrus for the money & risers, our new Arts Coordinator is amazing. He's in a jazz band that is great, Le Hotclub de Biglick, and he can talk like any smooth daddy-o out there. It makes me wonder what I might grow up to be like. I hope it something cool, even though that sounds very childish, I want to be admired. Needy much? Maybe... okay, yes. But who doesn't want a little attention now and again? I'm going to start putting some "news" stuff in these posts too, not the dry boring stuff they put on TV but stuff that Phillip DeFranco is known for. If you don't know who PillyD is just go to You-Tube and search the name, he's amazing! That's all for right now!

Late Night Home.

Work was fine as normal. Day in day out, that sort of mindless repeat we could do unconsciously everyday of our lives and continue to complain about it like it was something new and torturous. I scared Lauren, I hid around a corner with a giant smile, while holding a pin, and when she turned the corner I was there and said "STAB!" I thought it was hilarious. Lauren on the other hand sorta but not so much. Yeah. School was the same routine, although the thought that graduation is less than 11 days away is saddening and full of relief. I'm not too sure if the Stooges are graduating really, I know they have to do summer school or something but who knows anymore. Running around about things never really was my forte. It's really sad to think that they and a few select other seniors are leaving me behind. This happens every year though, but I'm still not used to it. I hope I never am because that would mean that my friends are not important to me anymore. Oh yeah, So I'll cry like crazy on graduation day. For everyone, even those who I know I'll be seeing the next day for some party or to lounge around with. Amazing how no matter what feelings always rule above reality.I don't think the reality of myself graduating will ever really hit me until the day of. Since class of 2009 will be graduating on my birthday next year (June 12th) I'm glad to say I'll turn 18 and graduate. Crazy baby.
My birthday is coming up too. Ten days, yay! I'm completely thrilled that I'm turning 17. I think if I stay 16 any longer I might go mad. I hate even numbers. I'll also be one step closer to not being an anti-pedo. Damn my liking of men that are 18-27! They just seem more respectful than most of the males I know. Which is a complete lie because at any age anyone, especially the male of the species, can be an ass. I've also been quite a bit flirter, I wish I would stop. I don't really know why I do it so much as that I do it because everyone else does it. Though I don't look like anyone else, or act like anyone else's personality, but I sure do suck on to those trends like a cheep whore. That's me. This summer I think I'll loose 30lbs for a starter. Tone up a bit. I can walk to two YMCA's from the Hotel. So I'd get off of work at 7AM and then go work out for like two hours or something and then catch the bus or call mom to come get me and take me home. Sounds like a plan I suppose.
The next time I get paid is actually on my birthday, which is amazing, I'm going to go buy two pair of SKULLCANDY headphones: the ear buds and the DJ ones. Yeah cause next paycheck will be good. Like your mom.

Sunday, June 1, 2008


Yay, I'm saying that officially, my computer is running quickly! So far I have not gone to bed from yesterday before work. Approximately four hours from now I'll have been up 24 hours. I'm not tired though. My day has been full with spending money and moving around. This morning after work I proceeded to come home and not eat, ha. Then I found myself wondering why my computer was soo--- slow and I realized with little effort that, ha again, I only had 256 MB of RAM. Oh that explains everything! So after doing many Google searches and stuff I found the type of memory card that I needed! I went out to my local and helpful Circuit City and bout two 512MB RAM memory sticks. Yes children, 1024 MB of RAM = 1 GB of RAM. Bet-cha didn't know that fact! So my computer is running up to my standards and nothing needs as much load time! I'm quite happy and just now at 4:13pm am just starting to feel the lethargy of my body.
A&E is my new favorite channel for tonight, I'm watching The Andromeda Strain, which might I add is very good. It kind of shows that the President is out for himself and his supporters. Wow, that's a new one....... yeahhh. I also spent more money on iTunes, $40. Then for both RAM sticks it came to $104.98. D: Then I took mom out to eat at some Chinese restaurant which was around $16.33, and now I'm considering going back on iTunes cause I can thing of at least 20 more songs that I want. I'm glad I got paid a little more than I thought or I would have been broke ages ago. Yay for making $9.25 an hour!!!


In two weeks of working third shift at the hotel I have never been tired. I feel as though my body was meant to stay up all night rather than all day. Strange huh? It seems to be more natural. So far by working the night shift I have been bribed to try to get alcohol after 2:40 am, told "I love you" twice, and seen over at least 300 drunken, idiots. Some days I love my line of work. School is ending and my birthday is quickly approaching, witch is a happy thing, but the majority of my friends are graduating and leaving the area at a run. It amazes me how some people can really hate this place so much. I, personally, don't prefer it but I still would rather live here than some places in the United States. Places like Florida, New York, and California are amazing to visit, although I don't think I'd ever live there for the small fact that little towns and cities would then be quite boring to me, instead of a relief when I arrive back home. I never have had trouble sleeping in high noise areas like New York but I do prefer the quite, mellowness of Roanoke.
Sitting here at work we, as employees, are discouraged to use the Internet or any other programs then "OnQ", our system to check in and out people and some card system that I have yet to actually train on. Ha. Unlike those loyal and trustworthy employees I use the Internet to its fullest and probably just get on every ones nerves with how much I know how to tweet and use it. I think it's quite funny that after three hours of sleep and a twelve ounce can of vault I can still code html and semi hack into FireFox to change the speed settings, if you really call that hacking. I don't. People filter in at the desk at all hours. I've found it quietest from 3:20-3:45AM on busy nights and from 2:45-4-15AM on any regular to slow nights. Which leaves quite a bit of time for reading, working on paper work, and even the occasional nap... no naps actually. They're grounds for dismissal naps are, ha. Do I care? Yeah, I care. People have been checking out from 4 AM till 5 AM, now it's finally slowed down to almost nothing, with the occasional straggler. Why anyone would check out that early is beyond me. Though, I can see if you have to drive and get somewhere on time... yeah I guess it is logical. No one I would know is up this early. I would still be up this early if I wasn't working, I tend to read all night anyways.
Speaking of reading, my newest book is Laurell K. Hamilton's Blood Noir. Another great book added to the Anita Blake series. This one is about Jason: werewolf extraordinaire and hottie. It happens, ha. I've gotten to somewhere in the twenty chapters and so far there has been two sex scenes and plenty of drama. Not to mention Marme Noir is supposed to make her appearance in this book. So over all I think it will be another grand adventure. I'm thinking about reading the Mary Gentry series that she also writes but I don't like fairies all that much. Pestering little buggers. So I might just stick to what I know and wait every year for: Anita Blake. Well I must get back to work, my brake is over and Kristina loves me so much that she wishes that I would take her place and she could just leave already. Haha. Over all the night was pleasant, yeah pleasant is the word alright.
