HARRY FREAKING POTTER

So. I went to Islands of Adventure today. IoA is the park where this place is.

drunkkitsune and I went together. It was open. HOLY SHIT GUYS. Here's the stuff I got. I'll edit this later with what it was like (the ride was AMAZING OMG) in a little it.

THE STUFF
Guys.

I'm in a creative writing class and for my final we have to revise a poem, fiction, and nonfiction piece and send it to our professor. We have critiques from classmates and from the professor for our first drafts and stuff, but uh, my classmates kind of fail at critiquing/editing. :c

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN.

If any of you, for whatever reason, feel inclined/are bored enough to look over my writing I WOULD LOVE YOU FOREVER. I need some hardcore critiquing/copy editing here. Revision is difficult for me, I have a hard time going back through my stuff and fixing it. I usually know what needs to be fixed but GOD knows I have little to no idea how to go about it. That and I hate everything I write anyway so LOL and I forget that people who read stuff DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT A PIECE. lol bad at background information. :/

SO PLEASE F-LIST, IF YOU COULD FIND IT IN YOUR COLLECTIVE HEARTS TO HELP ME OUT, I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

Everything's due this Monday night so, yeah. :c Hit me up here/on aim/whatever if you wouldn't mind helping. I'm pretty desperate here. :c

THANKS GUYS. ILU. <333333333

: DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I CAUGHT A VULPIX BITCHES.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, BITCHES.

After work, I might actually sit down and type up a real post. : D

QUICK UPDATE LOL

So. My birthday did not suck. At all. It was quite honestly one of the nicest birthdays I have ever had. Parents got me a PSP which was awesome. Mark showed up at work the Friday before my birthday which was a nice surprise. He got me the most awesome necklace ever and Assassins Creed 2 (which he really didn't have to get me but he is stubborn and wanted to get me something I would have on my birthday fjdkslajfdkjfdksfsfdf). My parents took us all out to Makoto's for my birthday dinners and it was delicious. Makoto's, by the way, is an awesome Japanese steakhouse. The kind of place where they cook in front of you and stuff. Also tried some plum wine and it was fantastic.

Umm. And that was about it. It was just a nice, quiet day. : D
ALSO SKYPE PARTY SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME AND THAT WAS NICE. :3


OH. THANKSGIVING. I FORGOT.

SO. The week before Thanksgiving, my cousin had a baby! So we got to see her for more than a half hour on Thanksgiving. It was nice and the baby is actually pretty cute (I say actually because most newborns aren't actually cute :| ). We had too much food, as is per usual.

SO LOL ITALIAN FAMILY. THIS WAS THE FOOD:

APPETIZERS:
- Antipasta
- Bread dip
- Couple of other things I can't remember

TURKEY TEIM FOODS:
- TURKEY
- Mashed potatoes
- Corn casserole
- Green Bean casserole
- Corn bread stuffing
- Sausage stuffing
- Cranberry sauce
- OH AND A 20 POUND LASAGNA. WTF. W. T. F.

Dessert:
- Pumpkin pie
- Apple pie
- Pumpkin bars
- Jello with fruit stuffs
- Gingerbread cookies
- Chocolate pudding with graham crackers that my father can not live without
- Ambrosia
- Some other thing I don't remember

....

So.

This was all for...nine people. :|

wtf family, wtf.

ALSO. THE LASAGNA REALLY WAS 20 POUNDS. My cousin listed how much she put in. :| It was kind of ridiculous. And when I say kind of I mean it was really, really ridiculous. BUT LOL SHE WANTED LASAGNA.

anditwasn'tevenreallythatgoodi'vehadbetter

ALSO I NEED TO GET THE REST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FOR PEOPLE.

I know what I am getting Mark, my dad is done, my mom is...I still have to figure that out, and then I have friends to buy for. Most of my friends I know what I am getting though, I just have to go buy it.

And. That is all. : D
My birthday is Saturday. I'm not really looking forward to it. It's difficult when your birthday is this late in the year, especially where mine falls which is on or around Thanksgiving and also incredibly close to finals. This makes planning things difficult. This makes people back out of doing something with me for my birthday. This makes people unable to do anything with me on my birthday.

Not that I blame them, I mean come on, it's Thanksgiving. I'm not going to ask my friends to ditch their families and come spend the day with me on Thanksgiving and lord knows no one wants to go out the day after unless they're shopping.

IDK MAN IDK.

I'm happy, but I'm still dragging my feet. I'm excited, but I don't expect anything.

I never do expect anything from people. I don't expect people to buy me birthday gifts or remember when it is without the help of Facebook, I don't expect people to invite me places, I don't expect people to offer to do things for me or with me. I'm not sure if I've always been this way or if this trait just sort of developed over the years.

I don't know, but whatever. Once again, I expect nothing. It's easier too. It makes it sting a little less when your friends - good friends, close friends, best friends - forget.
So while Steam is off doing it's thing so I can play Borderlands (jklJFDKSLJFLSDKAFDOMGYAY), I figured maybe I should update this thing since it's been awhile.

ANYWAY. Life is good. : D]

Work is lovely. Family is lovely. RL friends are...almost lovely. Online friends are ALWAYS lovely. Boyfriend is amazing and lovely and I love hiiiiim. <333333

jfkdlajfds

OK. REAL UPDATE LATER I GUESS SINCE BORDERLANDS IS DOOOOOOOOOOONE. HELL. YEAH. : D!
