OH HAI. You've just stumbled onto my journal. It's not friends only, so feel free to look around! But this is mostly just my personal stuff--not much pertains to fandom, other than my random entries about listening/playing/reading/watching something new. Have fun!

Even though I was so relieved when I finally settled on Theater and Education as my double major, I've become agitated again.

I'm dropping Theater. Even though I don't want to disappoint the friends I've made in the department, and the teacher, and especially Shay, I know if I don't I'll be disappointing myself. I can't do it. I love it, I do, but I'm just not good at it. It's not what I want.

I'm taking up English as either a minor or my second major.

I hate indecisive me, but it can't be helped.

I hope Shay won't be too disappointed. Today, she mentioned how happy she was that we were majoring in theater together, and reminded me of the day we went and saw Twelfth Night when we both decided we wanted to do theater for a living.

She asked me, "Did you ever think we would actually get here?"

"Yes." I said, the my betrayal hiding in the back of my mind, struggling not to make itself known through my voice.

I am sorry.

GANTZ MOVIE OH MY GOD I'M SO EXCITED AND SO GLAD I FOUND OUT ABOUT IT IN TIIIIME!

January 20, the first Gantz movie is going to be playing in a couple of theaters near where I live! After the movie, they're going to show a live interview with the two actors playing Kurono and Kato.

I'M SO HAPPY!

Now I'm need to go and catch up with the manga.

Oh my gods, I just beat Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. Fucking game. It made me cry. I still want to cry. I did not expect that storyline, that ending, in a fucking puzzle game.

This is the first video game to make me cry. I feel like such a dork right now.

So, I'm tired as fuck from this week, and it's only Tuesday. All the stress is killing me. Thought we were gonna do our scene today, but then we didn't. Our teacher can't fucking count. Despite that, for the past few weeks, we've only been able to get to one or two groups each day, he still decided to add us as the third group for today. Guess what fucking happened? We didn't go. All my nervousness and gut-wrenching anxiety was for nothing.

Motherfucker.

But, on the bright side, my speech on Monday went marvelously well. I mean, it was beautiful. The class liked it, and I only really messed up a couple of times. I'm so happy. I made my class want to hear about Victor Hugo, who really is a remarkable person.

Thursday is gonna be such a bitch, though. My Japanese midterm and the scene are both due that day. And the Japanese midterm is a fifteen minute verbal test. I'm so gonna vomit at some point that day.

Then, on Friday, is my history exam. I can only pray I won't fuck up, cause I so have not been paying attention in that class, even though I take notes.

The only good thing I can think of to look forward to this week is the release of How to Train Your Dragon and Sukoshicon.

Fuck. I'm tired. Those concerts over the weekend just sucked all my energy out of me. Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Five Finger Death Punch kicked ass. They were definitely the best. Besides them, Sick Puppies was pretty good. I'm told Godsmack rocked, but we missed them.

This student in the Drama department wrote an awesome play, and he invited Freshman to come and read, to see how it sounded (I know, contradiction, but you get the idea) and give feedback and critique it. I hope it gets the grant for the department. It is so fucking awesome.

I remembered an old band I liked, and got them on my iPod. God, it's been so long since I listened to Smile Empty Soul, and they've come out with two more albums since I last heard them. I remember I first started listening to them because of an old Naruto fanfic. Just like my favorite band, AFI. I first heard of them because of a Naruto fanfic, "But Home is Nowhere" by Mercury Bohemian, and it also introduced me to a bunch of awesome movies and many other great bands.

I'm gonna go look that up now, so I can be all nostalgic over it. =D
