Okay, those of you who came here for whatever reason, I don't use this, as you can tell. If you want to know what's going on in my life or read my writing, look on my DA or FA pages. That is all.

Midterms

Hi, all. Midterms are this Wednesday and Thursday, so my online presence will likely be spotty at best. Hopefully, my latest submission will tide you over until I return.

Writing

Share
Samus Aran
Anyone who knows me very well knows that I take writing very seriously, especially my own. When my family praises my writing, it's an ego booster. When a stranger or a friend praises my writing, it makes my day. When a teacher or someone whose writing ability I consider to equal or surpass my own praises my writing, it makes my week.

T'other day, I had a meeting with of my English professors to show him the journals I had written for what we had read. Although there are only about nine students in this class, including me, he said that my journals were some of the best organized out of all the ones he had read so far. Go me ^_^

In other news, I realize it's been a while since I last gave y'all an update on how I'm doing in Pokemon Emerald. Well, I seem to have fallen into a phase in which I'm driven to simply raise Pokemon to Battle Frontier status for the fun of it. Check out this stable:

Hooray dogs!

Share
Samus Aran
One of the first things I learned that sucks about being at college is being all but cut off from animal contact. Even though home and dogs I love are a 30-45-minute drive away, to go so long without touching something warm, soft, and living is hell for me. Somehow I've survived three years of it, yes, but that doesn't make it much easier. This makes meeting an animal that I can touch all the more sweeter, and yesterday, I hit the jackpot.

Apparently yesterday was St. Francis of Assisi Day, at least here at my college, and people were invited to bring their pets to daily chapel for a blessing. St. Francis, to the best of my knowledge, is the patron saint of animals and in his time, 1182(?)-1226, advocated simple life and a love of nature. I very rarely go to chapel, which is optional, in fact this is probably the first time I've gone to chapel in months of school time. Advertise the presence of animals, though, and I'm there. I read on a poster once that, among other things, every dog lover would buy almost any product a dog advertises.

Sure enough, there were at least eight dogs among the participants of chapel yesterday. Included were two golden retrievers, a bigass samoyed (mix?), a little ragamuffin terrier-ish dog, a bulldog or boxer of some kind...maybe a bullboxer, and a couple other dogs I can't place (one of which I'd guess was a shepherd mix). All were able to be petted, though some were more eager than others; one of the goldens was eleven weeks old and was absolutely delighted to be petted but couldn't sit still for a second. The whole chapel had praise of life and nature in their many forms as its central theme. I left the chapel smelling like dogs and absolutely delighted.

Next year, I'll bring Maggie and maybe some of her friends ^_^

In honor of this auspicious event, I'm submitting some pictures of some of the dogs I've come to particularly love, as well as some haiku I wrote about them for an English class a semester ago. Enjoy, yah?

September 29th, 2006

At about 8:45 P.M. this evening, my low disk space warning came on (meaning that I had >200 MB of space left). This has happened a few times in recent days, but earlier today, I deleted about 500MB worth of data. To my great surprise and fear, I had suddenly fallen to 168MB of space. As I spoke to my online friends about this, I saw it fall to 162MB and then 156MB of space for no obvious reason. At their suggestion, I physically disconnected my internet access and ran my Spyware and anti-virus programs (which I had disabled for about 15 minutes to try to play an online game, of course with no luck -_- the technological shit just hit the fan tonight).

After deleting some other stuff to give myself some breathing room, and moving my 2.75GB library of anime music videos onto my iPod (which I probably should have done ages ago, the situation seems to have stabilized, leaving me with 3.14GB of free space; ample wiggle room. I don't seem to have lost any irreplaceable data (meaning my schoolwork and my personal documents/stories/chat logs). To be safe, I have everything valuable backed up in two locations (yes, I backup my stuff regularly anyway).

I'm going to talk to student computing first chance I get.

Know that although I'm prepared for the worst, if the worst does indeed happen, that will be a considerable setback in just about every aspect of my online life. There are other computers here so if the technological equivalent of Meteor does befall Lappy-san, I'll at least be able to let y'all know and give periodic notifications that I'm still alive and thinking of ya.

In an effort to smile, a word of warning: wash your hands immediately after finishing a conversation with me. Otherwise you might catch a deaaadly computer virus.

YIM discussion

*yawn*

Gonna put some stories up soon, including at least one new story, maybe two. Rejoice.

Man, I wish I could post something interesting here besides IM stuff, but I think you'll find this one to be very different from what I've posted so far. Know that this contains semi-angsty stuff, but it's also a sensitive topic for me, so if you're going to comment, choose your words carefully. Also, after getting some sleep, I feel a good bit better, so don't worry about me, kay?

Chris Snowfur: XD Where perverts
Si M: I don't know why, but having you seemingly take a genuine interest in me like this is...really flattering.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ I realy likes ya
Chris Snowfur: :P I am one person one never forgets, weather good nor bad, but i could care less witch, aslong as people rember the name 'Snowfur'. They could spit on it, or praise it as belonging to there closest friend ^..^ I still acheive imortalty in a sence
Si M: Heh...well, I like ya too.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ *Higher plane of thinking mode off*
Si M: Man...now I've gone from super horny to super romantic.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^
Chris Snowfur: There both intertwined, One needs the other.
Si M: Not necessarily, but they can go quite well together.
Chris Snowfur: Lol but think of it like this. There can be no romance unless the urge to have sex is there, I.E being horny, and Being romantic more often then not comes first. So they do in fact need each other
Si M: Once again, I disagree. I've come to distinguish romance from sex.
Chris Snowfur: There are many points of veiw, i have mine and you have yours ^..^
Chris Snowfur: I dunno why, but i feel all sage like since i got out of the shower :P
Si M: Yeah. I didn't always think like that; that's a rather new change in point of view (maybe no more than a couple of months old).
Chris Snowfur: ^..^
Chris Snowfur: I may not realy differenceat [differentiate] between them, but i know they are fundemently diffrent, all i am saying is more often then not they lead to one another. Romance breeds attraction, Attraction breed the need to breed, so one and so forth
Si M: I'll give you that one.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ This applise to most things, There cannot be Life with out Death, Peace with out Chaos. It's all Yin and Yang. The positive needs the negitive, they work together to create balance, one pushes the other, one chaises the other.
Si M: Yeah...but sometimes the idea of balance rubs me wrong. I still think it sucks that peace follows strife, for instance.
Chris Snowfur: But it has to happen. I will give you this exsample. A butterfly is traped in a spiders web, If you leave them be, the butterfly dies, But if you free it, the spider dies. Its all about the circle of life and death, Peace and chaos, As the moon follows the sun and the dawn chaises off the darkness.
Si M: *horse sigh* ...Guess we can't all live on the Blessed Fields of Elysium....
Chris Snowfur: :P Its not somthing to think to deep on, Its one of the mysterys of this world that will drive you mad trying to solve every bend
Chris Snowfur: I only understand so much, with has given me the fortitude to let others darkness slide off me, knowing light will soon follow
Si M: *lets out another horse sigh*
Chris Snowfur: Life is as hard to understand as it is easy to explane away
Chris Snowfur: I will leave you with this tibit, you yourself are playing your part, you are the light that chaises the darkness away, The one to bring peace to the Chaos, Life to the Death.
Si M: *smiles a little*
Chris Snowfur: We all have our roles, I like to think of myself as the one in the middle, with a foot in each. Hence my main characters first incarnation as a Anglic Demon
Si M: Heh...sometimes I envy the ability to have a foot in each, as you say.
Chris Snowfur: And i envy you, Becuse have not truly seen the darkness, you my friend are as pure as the morning sun.
Si M: Pure or ignorant?
Chris Snowfur: There is a big diffrent, i know far to well you have seen the darkness, but you do not have any in you..............I on the other hand do, i at one time was almost consumed by it
Si M: Bah. I have no idea what darkness really is, and ignorance is a very poor substitute for innocence.
Chris Snowfur: [Deleted. Please, don't ask.]
Si M: ...No.
Chris Snowfur: *Nods* Then you are a lot purer of mind then i am
Chris Snowfur: :P Enough of this deep thought, its making my head hurt
Si M: Merf...I could go on...but maybe we should move on.
Chris Snowfur: Lol ya, before we warp each others minds even furthers
Si M: Besides, even on Elysium (I'm talking about the D&D cosmology), there's still opportunity to aid others.
Chris Snowfur: *Noddles*
Chris Snowfur: I like to think i help others, that mably a bit of what makes me so stronge rubs off on others
Si M: *lets out another long sigh* Looks as if the only place I could find contentment is nirvana, but when I've thought of that, I don't even want to go there...the thought of leaving this earth, as painful as it can be, and all of my friends behind....
Chris Snowfur: Thats what i am talking about, dont think about it to hard, you will drive your self mad
Si M: Heh, I'm quite accustomed to thinking about it too hard. But seldom do I have someone willing to listen.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ I am a lot deeper then most people give me credit for
Si M: So...guess I'm stuck here, much as it sucks.
Chris Snowfur: Lol dont think like that, You are surounded by friends and loved ones, You have the freedom to express your self artisitly((Your storys)) You wake up to a bright morning every day, yes there are times life sucks, but you have to take the good with the bad, what dose not kill you((Mind,body or soul)) Makes you stronger
Si M: ...Yeah....
Si M: I dunno...maybe I'm just lonely or something...I'll be okay.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ Yours is out there
Si M: *smile* Let us hope we find each other.
Chris Snowfur: ^..^ I know you will

Boredom

Share
Samus Aran
*scratches self and groans* There's a four-hour lull between classes on Tuesday and Thursday, which leaves me really freaking bored! I mean, I just translated my latest Wild story over the course of a couple of hours and then proofed a friend's short story just out of boredom...yeah, this gives me a little more online presence, but when I get bored this easily, it means it's time to...do...something I haven't figured out yet. Probably work on a particularly long story.

I wonder if someone I know from the deli has looked at this site yet. I told her I translate roleplays into stories and use this site as my blog of sorts, but I didn't tell her anything about the stories. Heh heh....

False alarm, nothing worth looking at here, sorry to bother you.

Okay, I'll eventually have something up besides more of the crap I've been putting up in my scraps, but I go back to college tomorrow. Once I get settled in and all my stuff sorted out, writing, editing and talking to friends online will again become primary diviersions, so give things time: the pendulum will swing the other direction.

It's been a pretty damn good summer, I must say. I worked at the Rainbow deli again, and although I wanted to not work there this summer, I had a great time: now that I'm actually writing stuff, I had all the time I needed to muse on story and RP ideas.

I finally started reading :iconkirbygod:'s stories, and as I expected, I bit off a lot. More than I could chew? Not likely...just need time to digest. They gave me one pretty sweet character in the making (see next story ideas).

I did some great RPing, both on boards and via IM, giving me tons of story material.

Now...if only this weren't likely my last summer. Oh well. I'm anxious about what I'll be doing at this time next year, but I'll figure something out.

On a side note, if anyone's interested in my Emerald progress, I just got to the Elite Four. Haven't challenged them yet: gonna go build my levels.

Solar (Blaziken): Flamethrower, Double Kick, Rock Tomb, Bulk Up.
Tides (Swampert): Surf, Ice Beam, Mud Shot, Toxic.
Sathir (Sceptile): Leaf Blade, Screech, Rock Tomb, Facade.
Doomtrain (Aggron): Iron Tail, Rock Tomb, Toxic, Earthquake (will be replaced).
Confucius (Alakazam): Psychic, Shock Wave, Calm Mind, Recover.
Amp (Magneton): Thunderbolt, Toxic, Shock Wave, Double Team.

Full circle

Share
Samus Aran
It's my last week before I go back to school and now there's not much to do but wait it out and volunteer my ass off. Graduation requirement, don't ask (since I don't know much either). My sister's also off to college herself for her first year. Give 'em hell, sis.

But besides that, I think I've come full circle on Pregfur. The full story's available upon request, but I discovered and started frequenting that site in mid April, 2004. The first thing I did when I found it was look at the stories (I've long been scouring the net for a good read) and read Mateo Rojo's Redemption in one sitting (that's some seventy printed pages). I can say with great certainty that it changed my life, and the site itself still does whether I'm making friends or writing stories.

I bring this up because after some two and a third years, I finally have a story up on Pregfur's stories page...so I'd say I've come full circle. And I only plan to have more put up as time goes on. Booyeah ^_^

Now how 'bout helping me pick what to do next, ya?
