English paper due at 10:45 tomorrow morning?

See for yourself.... )


Yeah...I'm screwed. Been NaNo-ing and napping when I should have been essay writing. It's basically a rewrite of the Keene Modest Proposal essay from last year. I couldn't think of a topic, and I had hated that paper anyways....so now I took the same ideas, but completely rewriting them. BUT I WANT TO GO TO BED. Geez....is i plagiarism if I turn in a paper I wrote previously with a bit of tweaking? GUH!!!! *angry Klingon curses*

And now I'm freaking out about that essay he wanted to include in that magazine of super amazing NHC English students, because I think he wanted to use my lolita essay, but I wanted to send that to f-ing La Vie and if Christina likes it and decides to use it, they get publishers rights for three months and I have NO idea when Composite is supposed to come out. All I know is that it will be early next semester. Grrr....

*hate*

Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras Extras...



...can you tell I've got something on my mind? I'm a bit upset right now because I blew about $27 on an Alice Temperly blouse from from Target. It's beautiful, a lovely creme color....AND COMPLETELY LOLI-ABLE!!! But yeah...I'm upset because now I MAY not be able to buy Extras AND La Vie en Rose...welll, actually....NOTHING could stop me from getting either. Scott Westerfeld is like my god and m'dear li'l Bethy's gonna be in La Vie. So. Case settled.

Plus. Got my tuition reimbursement check from financial aid on Friday. Not gonna say how much it is...but let's just say that I'm very pleased at how much I'll be able to put up into my savings.

BUT. A bit disappointed because right now it looks like I'm going to end up NOT going to Japan next summer. I haven't been able to get in touch with Rai at all and I'm REALLY uneasy with how few details of the trip I know. I'd really just feel more comfortable waiting until I'm more financially stable and have a much, MUCH better grasp of the language to go. After all, Japan's not going anywhere, right? (actually, according to my mom, it'll be gone in a few days or so...conquered by Britain or something along those lines...XD)

AAAAHHHHHHH.............Extras.....

Mes petites! Aujourd'hui c'est vendredi! J'adore vendredi! Merci Dieu pour vendredi!

Aujourd'hui est un bon jour parce-que je vais voir ma petite Sophie après je pars mon université où je travaille. Et, aujourd'hui je recevois mon salaire! Maintenant, je peux acheter le nouveau livre de Scott Westefeld, Extras, et je peux acheter l'édition de La Vie en Rose pour octobre et novembre! Aussi, je vais commencer mon travail à Party City ce lundi!

Je ne peux pas attendre pour ce soir quand je peux voir ma Sophie. Je ne peux pas attendre pour le 2 d'octobre parce-que je peux acheter Extras. Je ne peux pas attendre lire Extras. Je ne peux pas attendre acheter la nouvelle édition de La Vie en Rose. Je ne peux pas attendre!

"My dearies! Today is Friday! I love Friday! Thank you God for Friday!

I cannot wait for tonight so I can see Keri. I cannot wait for October 2nd because I can buy Extras. I can't wait to read it. I can't wait to buy La Vie en Rose. I can't wait!"

First of all (this just rocked my world), I am--apparently--this super incredible WRITER OF AWESOMENESS. At least, according to my film teacher I am. Seriously, he went on and on and on to THE WHOLE CLASS about how I wrote this simply AMAZING PAPER that was the equivalence of LITERARY GOLD of something about THIRTY TIMES in roughly TEN MINUTES. Ummm...yeah? I think my entire class probably hates me by now BUT it is a GREAT RELIEF to hear this after I got rejected by La Vie as a permanent writer. SO THAT IS PRETTY COOL.

The greatest thing about the whole ordeal? THAT PAPER WAS NOTHING BUT 100% BULL. Seriously. It's just something I slapped together and I didn't even think it was that great. So I feel a bit weird that it got so much praise. I'm glad it happened...but it's just weird...

Anyways...For your consideration:

Criticism of Nosferatu, ein Symphonie des Grauens (1922) )

#

Also, in honor of the utterly brilliant and enlightened [livejournal.com profile] naive_wanderer: WHY UTERUS WHYYYYYYY?

#

UMMMM I AM HUNGRY AND CANNOT THINK OF WHAT TO EAT. ALSO, I JUST SAW A SQUIRREL PASS BY MY WINDOW.

#

I think I'm going to buy the white OP that Meta gave out in their Lucky Packs....because I want an OP or JSK and cannot seem to find any other that will allow me to afford Oni-Con as well. My only question is this: HOW DO I COORDINATE?!!?! Seriously, all I have are black shoes...so I can't really do shiro-loli. HELP! I do not want to buy more shoes (Ok...yes I do, but my wallet doesn't....) :\ I suppose I could go out and buy a small bit of white fabric to make a headbow...but WHAT ABOUT SHOES?!?!? GAWDS...I have NEVER lacked the correct shoes for ANYTHING. Probably because I buy shoes ALL. THE. TIME.

So help....

Sometimes waiting is the hardest part...how can anyone stand to sit there without knowing? How is it that we can be expected to just stand still and hold ourselves in one place as others go about moving forward, surpassing us, achieving what we wish ourselves to possess. It's like death...this anticipation clawing at my heart. How cruel can any one person be to leave me in such agony as this. Waiting...
