This should be a title.

Just gonna throw this update together because I've got things to talk about!

Been a week since Spring Break ended and this week was simultaneously fast and slow. Like, what?

Stuff that was slow:
School in general. My Environmental Science class if getting more and more brain numbing because we're talking about the history of the Earth, plate tectonics, and rocks in general. I can't think of anything more boring. Except maybe US Skins. My Tuesday class is addicted to field trips and it's driving me insane. I NEED TO BE IN A CLASSROOM TO KNOW WTF IS GOING ON. It's stressful but I'm managing because apparently I've morphed into a semi-responsible person, idek. Thursday class was draining as fuck but I actually stepped up and was a ~leader so my teacher gave me major props. Thank god for channeling my anxiety into productivity.

Stuff that was fast:
Hanging with my future suitemates. I really do love them and am so excited for next year. Talking to Jeff, the new president for Circle K, on Facebook three nights in a row and just generally bonding~. He's really awesome and our personality's click so well. And despite how much Katryna jokes, I actually don't have a crush on him, surprisingly. I think it's because he reminds me so much of my cousin Matt. They have the same taste in music, love of movies and all things nerdy and honestly I didn't realize how much I miss Matt until I started talking to Jeff. I'm just so glad that I'm finally connecting with people I genuinely love being around because that was seriously missing last semester. +a million for successful college stories!

In other news, Rebecca Black needs to disappear from pop culture because her 15 minutes were up fifty years ago. Unless she's introducing me to amazing dubstep remixes, then she can stay. I'M INTO DUBSTEP. I never thought this would happen but Skins has a way of doing the impossible. If you are interested, I recommend We Bang's Smash the Floor, the track that sparked my love, or ANYTHING by CircuitBored. I'm not sure why I like this stuff so much. I think it's my affinity for heavy bass lines and just the uniqueness of it. I will say I do not love all dubstep and definitely don't think it's the time of music I could listen to 24/7. I have to be in the right mood.

Pokemon Black has been put on the back burner, unfortunately :( I'm only to the third gym and I still need to do some level grinding before I challenge Burgh. But I'm really enjoying the game, training isn't a chore and I feel like I've had good strategies with the teams I've assembled so far. I'm still trying to set up my solid six, but I have the tendency to switch 'mons out to cater to the type advantages for gyms but here are some of my favorites;

Well, that successfully wasted a lot of time XD This was sort of TL;DR, sorry :/

A Quick Update!

'Cause I should get back to homework XD

School is going great because I'm getting ~involved. I went to a Circle K International convention this weekend and it was exhausting but sooo much fun. I bonded with the people in my club and am really excited to hold office (Secretary-Elect!) next year. I've never been one of those super involved people who's in ten million different clubs but I want to focus a lot of my time on CKI because it such a great organization and will help me grow as a person/leader. /MATURITY :D

Now, on to the toys! XD This is a little sneak peak (pretty much just for Maddie and Fer) of my Pokemon collection update that I'll be posting over my Spring Break (NINETEEN DAYS FFFF) ! CHECK OUT MY NEW POKES!




Pic 1: My Bday presents again.
My Canvas!Floon is named Carl because of Up/my pair of 'floons in Platinum named Carl and Ellie and he's very lonely. Perhaps I will crochet him a partner? Gengar Pokedoll needs a name, because I can't keep calling all of his merch "Gengs". Suggestions?

Pic 2: A Bday picture from my future roommate Katryna.
FLOONS <3_<3 She knows me so well already. There's also a Venonat and a Mijumaru hiding behind the giant!Floon so it's perfection is unmatched. Also, now I need some sort of custom Floon merch with a bowtie because HOW CUTE KHFSKLGSH.

Pic 3: Bead!Floon that I made the weekend before Valentine's Day.
I have to attach the arms (legs? idk) but I think this little guy came out great seeing as I didn't use any sort of template. I also made him with shiny~ clear beads so he's more ghostly. I'm so excited to display him when I go home!

Pic 4: LEGIT UMBREON AND LAPRAS POKEDOLLS which were picked up from Nintendo World in NYC by Katryna (aka future roommate aka THE MOST AWESOME PERSON I'VE MET AT SCHOOL) this weekend.
Umby is of course named Pete (thank you Bandomlutions) and Lapras needs a name. I'm thinking she's a girl because all of my others are boys. SHE'S SO CUTE. Like, Pokedolls are precious overall but Lapras is too precious for this world. Katryna wanted to buy her from me XD I don't collect Umbreon or Lapras (though Lapras is a part of my dream team) but out of the 'dolls available they were my favorites. ALSO, how adorable will Pete and unnamed Gengar be with their creepy red eyes :3 FIGHTING POKEDOLL ADDICTION.

Okay, I said this would be quick so I'll end it here! <3

pokemon: it can be a dangerous thing

January 4th, 2011 (12:32 am)

current mood: nerdy

So, being on break has definitely lent me a lot of time to get back into Pokemon. I haven't been playing as much as I would like (I lack so much on Platinum and even more on SoulSilver, not to mention my abandoned Yellow game from what? Junior year? ;_;) But joining pokemon plus the ten or so pokeblogs I follow on Tumblr has made me feel like I'm more a part of the fandom now. Combine that with my excitement for Pokemon Black and White which is overflowing (March 6th! OMG!) and this new development shouldn't be surprising.

I, uh, have a new obsession guilty pleasure favorite comm! pkmncollectors ! After drooling over likeatruck 's gorgeous collection I wandered over to the comm out of curiosity. THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY A MISTAKE. I'm hooked. I want everything XD. I want to collect Pokemon that I don't even like. D:

This is really not what I need when I am living the life of a broke college kid who is uncertain of how tuition will be paid in full this semester. Thankfully, I do have a lot of willpower and won't buy anything impulsively. But, it's just, want ;_;

On a happier note, I do want to show off what Pokemon I do have because I am obsessed with collection pictures and could stare at them for hours. So here's my very small family, but a family nonetheless!

 
I have two more things to add that are not totally related to collecting.

Thing the first:

 
> I crocheted a Pokeball! And it came out a bit wonky, to be honest, haha. But I'm going to make more. I have yarn for a Master Ball, Safari Ball, and a Premier Ball which all use the same pattern with color changes and minor additions. I'm really excited about these. I figure, if I can't buy everything I want, I can still make some cool stuff! Unfortunately, I can't sell them because it's not my pattern :/
 
Thing the second:
 
> I played SoulSilver today! I had been loitering around in Ecruteak City for awhile, just avoiding battling Morty and then decided today was the today because I had a long wait at the car emissions check place. I honestly thought I'd have a lot of trouble with Morty, mostly because I had the hardest time battling Fantina in Platinum so I was worried about Ghost Gym Leaders. But while battling Fantina I got some tips that Normal types are better to use against Ghosts than other Ghosts so I focused on using my Kangasghan and Togetic. And they worked! I didn't even need my Gastly! My level 21 Kangaskhan took out Morty's level 25 Gengar no problem! I was very giddy and definitely remember why I love those games so much. Anyway, the point of this spiel was to share my SoulSilver Team, which I'm really gonna try to stick to, instead of just changing whenever I feel like it. You know, like on the show! (Wow, my nerd levels are off the charts right now...)

So, my current party is:


 
My sixth spot is a Gible I got in a trade that I'm leveling up. Not sure if I'll keep him on my team, it just doesn't seem fair~. I'd like another Gen II 'mon but we'll see. Okay I really need to stop now.

well, i guess this is growing up.

August 6th, 2010 (03:38 pm)
rushed

current mood: rushed

Move in is August 26th, we're driving up to VA on the 25th so I basically have 19 days until I'm off to college. That's insane to think about. I still have to clean/pack up my room but I've taken care of a lot already. It's Tennessee's tax free so I went and got some stuff that I still needed. I got two pairs of jeans from Old Navy for like $19 each, then I went to Target  and got a bunch of stuff, mostly boring bathroom and dorm stuff though I did get some new SkullCandy earbuds. And then I headed over to Staples and got a planner, a few notebooks, pencils, highlighters, and a mini stapler. It was all very successful but the weird thing was I was using all of my own money. I had two $50 debit card gift cards and then put the rest on my real debit card. I know it's silly, but I felt like a grownup~ lol.

I went to orientation a few weeks ago and got my schedule all worked out as well as obtained my student ID (which is cool to me bc I'm a nerd :3)

I'm doing this program that helps to take care of these requirements call General Education and basically there's four combo classes, I take two of them this semester and their each 7 weeks long, but 6 credits. Next semester my two classes will both be a semester long  and still 6 credits. I also have a basic, western civilization history course that will probably be boring, lol.

Here's my schedule for this semester:
First 7 weeks:
Narratives of Identity - Literature / Oral Communication
M&R - 9:30 - 12:00
W - 9:30 - 12:00

Second 7 weeks:
Global Networks & Communications - Global Understanding / Information Technology
Meets at the same times

Whole semester:
History 100
M - 4:30 - 7:10

So, I'll be taking three classes (only 2 at one time for the first semester) as opposed to the normal 5 but I'll end the semester with 15 credits. The idea is to make it easier for Freshman to adjust to the college workload and also to make smart connections between the material I have to learn under the General Education requirements instead of me taking a bunch of random classes just to check stuff off.
It's kind of confusing but I understand it and I think it's a really neat idea. It'll also allow me to knock out these requirements almost all in my Freshman year and be able to focus on my major sooner, rather than in Junior year.  I'm excited and I've already got some of my books ordered and on their way. Oh, get this. I'm gonna read the Communist Manifesto for that History course. Could be good, since I actually do understand Communism now (thank you Comparative Politics) and I'll probably know more than most people *nerd*. Is it weird that I'm actually excited for class? Like I know everything else will be super fun and exciting but I'm stoked to BE IN A COLLEGE CLASS. I'm sure that will change when my first paper is due, lmao.

Sooo, I know I haven't updated this much at all this summer but I'm sure I'll pick it back up when school starts. I'll post pictures of my dorm which I'm sure will be terrible but that's part of it.

I just can't say how excited/nervous I am and how much I almost don't want it to come. It's a weird feeling but it's mostly good. :)

So, lately, my life has been hanging out with friends/obsessing over Pokemon. Thus, my conflicting tags. Anyway, I wanted some sprite Pokemon icons so I made them! I also made dream team icons for me (pink) and futurecohen (sky blue) as well as a fave Pokemon icon for finch00  (dark blue). If you would like to use these, go right ahead, crediting me would be nice as would a comment!
