I took Adderall and drank some coffee so I could finish my English so now I'm Super-Renee for a few more hours. Adderall will wear off soon enough but I think the coffee was a crazy-bad idea. Tomorrow's gonna suuuuck.

I get to see Darcy next Thursday! :D It's been almost a year I think. I still don't have insurance but I really can't put it off anymore. So much has happened, I don't even know how to prioritize a whole damn year.

Classes are good this semester. Math is math, and the teacher is a little to perky for my taste first thing in the morning but so far it's pretty easy going. Development Psychology will end up burying me but I think I'm also going to get a lot out of it in the end. Composition II has potential to be... something. I'm going to have to be careful not to fall too far behind or I'm going to miss out on the fun stuff. ASL is easily my favorite, which is great since I was nervous that I would get overwhelmed like in Spanish. Reading finger spelling is a challenge, but other than that I'm picking up on it pretty quickly.

I've been tentatively watching anime/reading manga again. I really can't afford to get sucked in but it's a nice contrast to regular comics. Hentalia is disgustingly cute as well as strangely informative and Ouran is a good, cutesy time-waster.

My social life really sucks right now, and I'm going to leave that rant for another day when I'm not dizzy with legal speed and lack of sleep. Hopefully I'll be able to summon enough energy to update again sooner rather than later. Until then.

My Adderall is making me really tweaky right now, so bear with me.

Today was my first day of college. I'm deliriously pleased that the most stressful thing was finding my classes, and even then it was pretty chill. I even made a friend! Kinda! I dunno. Math is going to be painfully boring/easy, but I'll cope. So, college. So far so good. *nods*

I didn't post for New Years, mostly due to laziness. My resolution should be pretty obvious though. Maybe to lose a bit of weight as well? Just enough to lose my Freshman Fifteen, I think. Shouldn't be too hard, now that I'm not stuck in the house all day.

Fandom wise, I'm just haven't felt up to doing anything. The more I try to write Bart, the more he's coming out as a teenage girl and that's wrong, wrong, wrong. Hopefully school will wake my brain back up and I can function again.

Christmas was quiet. Rachelle was an ungrateful little shit and I go that new sweatshirt I wanted. It's very cozy. I got Season Six of Buffy because it was the only season I could find and I liked the musical episode anyway. Things like gift cards were lacking due to money problems, but I'll cope. Um, having gone shopping for comics yet, but I hope to by New Years.

I really, really need to buy my books for college. Hn.

I've never spammed my journal before, but please give a click? I'll try not to do this too often, it takes up too much space for my liking.

School Stuff

I had my visit to Kirkwood Community College today. Lots and lots to think about. I pretty much sat down with the entire list of classes and circled the ones I was interested is spending money to learn about. It's very telling, much more so than all those assessment tests I took.

Psychology, Philosophy, Anatomy, Play Analysis, Creative Writing (natch), Graphic Communications, Literature, Interior Design, Sociology, Political Sciences, Human Services and so on.

See a pattern here? A little bit a of people thing going on here, along with some creative outlets. I'm starting to narrow it down, and by no means do I need to pick anything resembling a major anytime soon. No matter which one I choose to continue on with, I'm most certainly interested in learning about these subject, and many relate to the other in some form or another. I have an appointment coming up with my Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, Bruce, and I think we'll actually have something to discuss this time. :D I also want to call my cousin Blake, as I don't think I've properly bounced I ideas of of him yet and I'm almost certain he'll have some kind of incite that would be helpful.

Family Stuff

In other news, my cousin Joe is going to be a daddy. He's the oldest of the grandchildren on my mom's side so I'm rather relived it's not me (or my sister *shudder*) who has to to have the first great grand kid. His brother John, (the cousin who was hit by the flood) is engaged to the rather competent Rose, so there's another first that I don't have to do. However, I may very well be the first to go to college (unless I screw up royally *knocks on wood*). John was going to be a nurse, but he had to drop out due to past football injures that wouldn't let him play. My beloved cousin Blake will be going to college for Nuclear Propulsion due to his joining the Navy. Hey, he's getting paid to go to school, and will only have to serve for a few years. He's also a summer baby, but he was held back instead of pushed along anyway like I was, so he has a bit of school still left to go.

Hmm, it seems that one of these days I'm going to have to do a big long post on my family. Or probably a series of them, by aunt/uncle/grandparent. My grandma has 5 kids and 13 grand kids so there's a lot of stories to tell. I'm afraid I don't know much about my dad's side, due to them living on the other side of the country in California and Connecticut. But I guess that's a story for later. ;)

Dear Mrs. Young,

A C- is no reason to send a letter home to my parents. A C is suppost to represent average. If a C in your class is disapointing, you need to change your God damn grading scale. No, I haven't complete all my work all the time, but it's a fuck lot better than not doing it at all, like I used to do. So. Back. Off.

Dear Mr. Alnot,

Yeah, I'm not going to make escuses on this one, I'm bombing it. Mostly because I have no idea what's going on. I wasn't here for when you assigned the big project, and I assumed I had more time than this. It's a big ass project, so it made sense. As for the Amendment quizes? I can't memories for shit, let alone politically correct babble. We better just be going over the Bill of Rights or I'm going to maim something.

Mrs. Zaiger,

Thank you for not sending a note about Photography. I am working on it, but without a folder to turn in my work with and the fact I broke my camera and lost all my film... it's gonna be a bit later. But I'm so going to get that Diana Arbus bio done! Really...

The computer has been acting up, we need to reboot the sucka.

I'm doing Library Aid for school and it's hard, man! Right now I'm going through books the school is gonna give away and ripping of this, and crossing off that, and stamping it with withdrawn everywhere, and the books are old, and they smell weird, and I didn't even know paper could do that!

Really into Static Shock right now. I found a really groovy story by Miss Manga, and now I'm hooked again.

I feel like everything is building up to something coming up, but damn if I know what. It happens.
