Commonwealth pwns BUA; Felicia Sun pwns Angeles (not so shocking). To anyone I bitched at today, I'm sorry. Just... please don't call me by my stupid girl name in the middle of a close bout.

Shinjini Mukherjee (zwingtip): hey
» nothing says "man" like a BMW motorbike

Angeles R. Murchison (basketccase): no, nothing says BUTCH LESBIAN like a BMW motorbike.

In other news, I saw Stephen in New York this weekend, which made me very happy.

If you're not already clicking:


In brief, download a tiny virus-free text file once a day and pay for some woman's brain surgery. It looks legit and either way, it's so easy that it's worth the risk.

Why do people have to be so judgmental? Commonwealth isn't any better than anywhere else. It was all an illusion. Bleh.

Despite being a child of the '90's, I still think it's pretty cool that I can renew my BPL books over the phone by automation. We're not that cool in Sherborn yet; we still have to talk to the librarian. ;)

Damn, I so do not want to read Coal. I'm seriously considering 'forgetting' about it.

In other news, I got my film processed and am undergoing the tedious process of scanning all the good negatives. Once my brother finishes his basement darkroom project (an eBay-bought enlarger is on its way; everything else is in place), I might be able to sneak down there and make some prints of the nice ones. I really like my 'local' (read: Wellesley) photo shop; they have good prices for develop-only and the guy there is really nice. I also bought my camera there a million years ago, and I *heart* that camera.

I'm going to try to convince my mom to let me get another snakey. It's baby season right now and I really want one of these: http://cornsnakes.net/gallery.php?catid=2&id=64
Sweet, no?

Snakey ate again! :3 In other news, I'm getting addicted to The L Word.

biting off more than I can chew... [31 Jul 2007|08:29pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

I don't know what I'm going to do during the school year... there are so many things I want/need to do:

* fencing practice, three days a week
* lesson with Ichi, only about half an hour but it takes up an evening
* therapy, hurrah
* guitar lessons
* volunteering one day a week with Samariteens
* helping out at Greenwood when I can

I'm thinking I'll have to drop guitar lessons, which is sad, but the other stuff is more important. Maybe I can do the Samariteens shift on a weekend or something, though that'd be a problem what with Vermont and all. And then there's all that fencing. Basically I'll have zero time to myself, be wicked stressed, and my grades will suck. Hrm.

Snakey ate last night! And I have community service for tomorrow at Greenwood and four hours friday at Samaritans. I finally put my laundry in the dryer, and I get to spend the weekend down the Cape with Ari and Leora. On the not-bright side, my sleep habits are utterly fucked up (3 AM to 11:20), but hey, it's summer.

I felt like painting yesterday and didn't have time. Instead I worked on the Alcove shirt (fixing mistakes is actually more work than you'd think) and partially modified a skort to be a slutskirt. Today my goal is to clean my room. Wish me luck.. it's awful.

[ mood | disappointed ]

CTY is over and Brown Fencing is over and now I have this big gaping expanse of home and community service that need to be dealt with. I miss CTY like mad and I miss Brown too, though I've only been gone for hours. Mostly it's knowing that I won't see many of those people for a year, if ever. Bleh. Goodbye sucks.

My shoulder hurts again. The trainer at Brown showed me some stretches that'll placate it for awhile, but the pain keeps coming back. It's not that it hurts all that much... I'm just sick of it.

I guess I should stop whining. I dunno, sometimes it seems like things are wonderful and happy, and then sometimes they look dull again, like they did last year. Not to freak anyone out, I mean, I'm okay, just tired. And worried about getting my community service done. Damn. Responsibility is bad. Oh, and I fenced shittily all week, which adds insult to the injury of all that work (don't get me wrong, I liked the camp, I just wish what I learned was more immediately obvious).

That is all. Good night. <3

Today was a great day for the people of Massachusetts -- for those of you who aren't familiar with MA politics, the proposed ban on same-sex marriage was struck down 45-151. I'm sleepy right now, so I'll fill in the details tomorrow or sometime shortly thereafter... but really, this was such a wonderful and important victory, and I'm so glad I was there to see it happen.

I want to get married, someday. And I'm infinitely grateful to all the legislators (and the people who convinced them) for making that possible.

Graduation. Whatever. Not that interesting.

I had to go to a neighbour-dinner-party this weekend. It was supposed to be just us and them, but their kids ended up having a million people over and it was horribly awkward and I felt like I was crashing their party. Plus the eighth-grade boys were really immature and homophobic. God, I really don't like homophobia. It hurts more and more every day.

I can't find my Shinji... I guess I'll just go to sleep and wait for morning.

...school's out?

I missed a train for the second day in a row and now my mom is trying to spite me with everything she does. It's kind of upsetting, but at least I had really good noodle soup today with Shinji and Charlie.

Also, when I was sitting on a bench at North Station (post-train-missing), and there was an empty prescription bottle lying on the bench next to me. It looked exactly like one of mine (the CVS kind), so I turned it over and it was some random guy's citalopram. I don't really know why I found that interesting... I guess it just goes to show that everyone's on drugs nowadays. The world is really pretty fucked, isn't it?

[ mood | okay ]

I don't really have that much to say, but I wanted to make an "okay" entry so that the last one doesn't stay on top. I'm okay. I'm in Vermont, not doing much except erratic studying for exams. I have to run with my mom later, which may cause me to die, but ah well. I need to get in shape for the fencing camp I'll probably be at this summer. My legs still hurt from my lessons, from all that lunging, I guess. I'm not as nervous as I ought to be for exams, and really looking forward to summer. I still need to call back the woman from Samaritans about community service.. that's my one nagging bit of guilt right now. Oh, that and all the chocolate I've been eating and my general lethargy and being really quite nonsocial. But all in all things are alright.

I was going to write you an entry about how much I loved you and how worth it it was to put up with all the shitty fights we have, for the times like when you pulled my hand across the table last night and kissed it and I couldn't stop grinning for the next three minutes.

But it's hard, it really is, for me to deal with this. I don't want to live my life watching every word I say and every step I take to make sure it doesn't somehow set you off for another round of emotional abuse. I love you. I honestly do love you. And maybe it is worth it. I just don't know how I can fix this, and it's wearing me down, in my mind and in my skin. Are all the sacrifices mine to make? Honestly, I don't know anymore how I can change, but I know that I can't take this forever.
