|Application for Be Your Wings RP
This is an application for an RP; please don't respond to this post in my journal.
Timezone: GMT -5 (Eastern)
Who else do you play here? No one yet.
Name: Raine Sage
Canon: Tales of Symphonia
Age: 23 (possibly 24 by this point in the timeline)
Timeline: Immediately post-game
History: (copy/pasted from Aselia, the Tales Wiki)
Raine’s family is not well known at the beginning of the game. The only known fact is that she has a younger brother, Genis, and that she has been acting like a mother for him. Later in the game, when the group travels to Exire, the floating city of half-elves, Raine discovers that her mother, Virginia, is actually living there. She and her friends go to visit her, but when they arrive they discover that Virginia is in a greatly disturbed state, and thinks a doll she is cradling is a baby Raine. They realize that Virginia has become delusional and amnesiac, perhaps from the trauma of abandoning her children and losing her husband, and is permanently stuck in her own past. When the group asks her about Genis, Virginia is surprised that they knew what she would name her second-born if it was a boy. Furious at her mother's amnesia, she yells at Virginia before running out in tears.
However, Raine receives Virginia's diary from the elder of Exire, which reveals the reason she was abandoned with Genis. The Imperial Research Academy from Sybak was desperate to take the already very intelligent Raine, and possibly Genis as well, to raise and study at the Academy. In order to prevent the Imperial Research Academy from reaching them, Virginia and her husband, Kloitz, constantly fled. It was while they were escaping from their pursuers that Raine fell from a ship into the ocean, causing her aquaphobia.
Eventually, Virginia decided to put Raine and Genis through the portal of the Otherworldly Gate, hoping to give them a brighter future in the fabled land of Sylvarant. Shortly thereafter, she and her husband collapsed in the Ymir forest, presumably in an attempt to return, and were found by the Elder of Exire. Kloitz died, and Virginia was taken to Exire. Raine and Genis eventually learn that their mother abandoned them because she thought it was a way of protecting them, not because they were a burden.
Raine, like her brother, is a half-elf, a race whose people are scorned in Sylvarant and Tethe'alla alike. When her parents abandoned her and Genis in the Otherworldly Gate, she was forced to be not only an older sister, but a mother figure for Genis. By the beginning of the game, Raine is 23 years old while Genis is 12; Genis was an infant when they were sent to Sylvarant, therefore Raine cannot have been more than 11 years old when she and her brother was abandoned, forcing her to care for her younger brother from then onwards. This helps explain her high level of maturity. There is a gap of around five years which are uncounted for, because Genis himself states that he and Raine only arrived in Iselia five or six years before the game actually begins. Raine has a number of artifacts and knowledge that cannot be explained by their remote location in Iselia, showing that they were came into Sylvarant far from Iselia and traveled to the village itself. Despite her youth, Raine remembers the prejudice she suffered from being a half-elf in Tethe'alla, for she told the members of the village that she was a pure-blood elf. Raine and Genis were then accepted into the village. After taking some tests, Raine became a certified teacher for Iselia.
She is willing to sacrifice herself for her beliefs if necessary. After Zelos Wilder betrays the party and kidnaps Colette Brunel at the Tower of Salvation, it is Raine who realizes that the party might have to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to achieve Lloyd's goals. She discusses this with Regal Bryant, the companion she considers most rational, in a skit at the time, saying that they must take the course with the highest odds of success, which is ensuring that Lloyd, with the power of his special Exsphere, survives the trip to the Great Seed Chamber. Raine believes his Exsphere, with the powers it gained from the Angelus Project, is the only real chance they have at defeating Mithos and rescuing Colette.
That time comes, and Raine sacrifices herself to save Lloyd by operating a machine that opens the doors that Lloyd passes through, but causes the room she is in to collapse. She says that she believes in his ideals, in a world free of discrimination. Even if she dies, she says, her soul will live on in the world Lloyd creates. Lloyd is forced to leave her, but she is saved from the trap by either Kratos or Zelos, depending on whom Lloyd spoke to in Flanoir. Clearly, her goal for trying to regenerate the world is to end the discrimination that she, as a half-elf, has suffered from all her life, the discrimination that drove her to pose as a pure-blood elf.
In Welgaia, Raine confronts her resentment towards her mother before rejoining Lloyd. She also seems to appreciate Lloyd's focus on the individual; she notes that he came to save them rather than head directly to confront Mithos when they all disappeared. This scene may assume that Raine visiting her mother did not take place before she went to Welgaia, although the group must go to Exire before traveling to Welgaia for the first time to trigger the scene. Virginia is labeled as "Mother", and Raine refers to her as "a mother who was too weak to stand up against the world's hatred" regardless of whether or not the party has met Virginia.
In the end, she travels around the world with Genis to help half-elves to gain acceptance, but knowing that Iselia is their home.
Personality: Raine is very mature and practical, often acting as the "adult" of the group. She can be counted on to remain calm and analyze a situation logically, and she makes her decisions based on what will most benefit the party or help them accomplish their goals. Because of this, others sometimes see her actions as cold and unfeeling. She is also slow to trust others, likely due discrimination in her past. Her travels with Lloyd and the others have softened her a bit, and she has come to be more open and more confident about her heritage.
Despite her logical approach to most things, Raine is neither emotionless nor without compassion. Her emotions often betray her, especially when angry or excited. When annoyed with someone, she sometimes reacts with slapstick violence, particularly towards Genis. Though strict with him, she cares deeply for her younger brother and acts as a mother toward him. She also exhibits genuine concern for her students, though she has no patience with misbehavior. As a healer, she tries her best to cure those who are sick or injured, displaying guilt and frustration when she is unable to do so.
Raine is a brilliant scholar, and she can often be found reading or lecturing others on some topic (whether they want to hear about it or not). She is fascinated by science and technology, particularly archaeology. Her curiosity and excitement sometimes get the better of her, sending her into a frenzy dubbed "Ruin Mode." While in Ruin Mode, she is completely irrational and may be perceived as insane by onlookers.
Besides Ruin Mode, Raine has a few other noticeable quirks. As a child, she fell off a ship and nearly drowned, leaving her with a severe phobia of water. This fear is triggered mostly by large bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, and the ocean; she is not afraid of bathing or being caught in a storm. Her cooking is awful, and while she is aware of this, she gets angry or hurt when others make fun of it. It has been joked that her cooking is bad enough to make people sick. Raine's obsession with technology has also caused her to cause explosions on several occasions, whether intentional or not. At this point, she may well enjoy blowing things up.
Appearance: (some information taken from the ToS artbook)
Raine is of average height and build (5'5, 108 lbs). Some have said she has a nice figure, but it is usually hidden by her loose-fitting clothes. She has a rather pale complexion and blue eyes. She keeps her silver hair cut just above her shoulders in a somewhat spiky fashion. Her ears are hidden (probably intentionally) by her hair, but presumably they are small like a human's but pointed like an elf's. Raine could probably pass for a human, particularly among those who are unfamiliar with elves and half-elves. Her usual outfit consists of an orange-red robe trimmed in black and accented with gold buttons, worn over a white shirt and black pants. Her boots are white with pointed "wings" at the top. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090306215244/aselia/images/thumb/8/86/Raine_artwork.jpg/121px-Raine_artwork.jpg
Future Plans: Her first priority upon awakening will be to figure out where she is and whether Lloyd, Genis, and the others have also arrived in this world. As a healer and a player in her own world's regeneration, she will heed Martel's plea fight for the Great Seed in order to heal this world as well. Since she is not a fighter, she is more likely to team up with like-minded individuals in order to win the Great Seed. Any "off-time" spent in this world will likely be spent obsessively studying everything she can about it.
Sample first person:
(Raine has just discovered the gaunlet-like device strapped to her arm.)
"I don't remember having this before. This gem looks a bit like an Exsphere, but I've never seen one that wasn't attached directly to the skin. Is it some sort of magitechnology?"
(She begins pressing buttons experimentally, bringing up the map screen.)
"A map? This is absolutely FASCINATING! It doesn't look like anywhere in Sylvarant or Tethe'alla. Perhaps it's a map of an ancient civilization!"
(She continues pressing the buttons, activating the hologram. Anyone who has their device on will be able to see a projection of a silver-haired young woman who looks far too excited for someone who just washed up in a strange world. She can also barely contain the excitement in her voice.)
"A hologram? AMAZING! The Desians had something like this, but never this clearly detailed. I wonder what else this can do?"
(She presses the broadcast button, which comes on with an audible "beep.")
"Is this some sort of communication device? Hello? C-can anyone hear me? My name is Raine Sage. Has anyone seen my brother or my students? Lloyd? Genis? Are you out there? If you're messing around, you're in big trouble! Just stay where you are, and I'll come find you."
(She accidentally presses the "off" switch.)
"Damn. I hope I didn't break it."
Sample 3rd Person:
The voice echoed through Raine's mind. "Please...save this world..." She was certain it was the voice of Martel, but why would Martel ask for the salvation of the world when the Great Tree had just been revived and the two worlds reunited? Was there something they had not yet accomplished? Raine opened her eyes, certain that the voice must have been a dream.
Glancing at her surroundings, Raine wondered if it really had been a dream. She found herself lying face-down in the sand, waves gently brushing the shore behind her. As she stood up to brush the sand from her face and clothes, she also realized she was rather damp. Iselia was nowhere near a beach, she couldn't remember leaving the village, and she certainly
would not have willingly jumped in the ocean even if she had. "If Martel has something to do with this, she has a strange sense of humor," she muttered to herself. Figures it just had
to be water. Her mood lightened somewhat when she noticed her staff lying next to her feet. Wherever she was, at least she wouldn't be defenseless.
As she slowly came to her senses, Raine looked around for any sign of her usual companions. Seeing no one, she called out to them. "Genis? Lloyd? Colette? Can anyone hear me?" No one responded. Forcing herself to remain calm, she scanned the horizon. She thought she could make out a town in the distance. Staff in hand, she strode toward the town as confidently as one alone in a strange place could, hoping to discover some sign of her friends, or at the very least, put as much distance between herself and that accursed ocean as possible.

I'm looking for a job. Right now, the only places hiring are Starbucks and Petsmart. If I get the job at Starbucks, I'd have to be there at 5:30 a.m. I want to apply for a dog grooming job at Petsmart, but I don't know if they want experience or not.

|So am I an adult now?
I can't believe I've had this journal for four years. I purposefully made my first post on my last day of high school. Today, I graduated from college and moved to a new apartment.
Now to find a job...
And to answer the question posed in the song, two common answers are "graduate school" and "teach high school." Guess which one I'm NOT doing? Current Mood: accomplished

|Meme swiped from Sora
You’ve somehow acquired a magical dimension-splicing conversion van and are planning an epic cross-country road trip with your friends and fandom. First, pick ten travel buddies from anywhere -- real life, fiction, OCs, celebrities, whatever. Then answer these questions to see how cracktastic your adventure turns out to be.
I decided to stick with game characters since most of my fandoms are game-based. I may do this again with more variety.
1. Soren (Fire Emblem 9&10)
2. Raine Sage (Tales of Symphonia)
3. Mario (Mario Bros, duh)
4. Jade Curtiss (Tales of the Abyss)
5. Franziska von Karma (Phoenix Wright series)
6. Frog (Chrono Trigger)
7. (older) Link (Legend of Zelda)
8. Marth (Fire Emblem 1 & 3)
9. Zelene (my current World of Warcraft character, a human mage who serves in the army)
10. Meowth (Pokemon, going with the anime incarnation though)
1. The GPS has an obnoxious voice. What does 9 name it, and is 7 bothered by it?
Zelene is tempted to name it after her general, but decides against it and calls it "PITA" for "Pain in the Ass." It probably annoys Link, but he keeps quiet about it in his usual fashion.
2. 1, 4, 6 and 8 are all forced to share the cramped back row of seats. How do they arrange themselves?
Sitting two cynical, overly-intelligent magic users (Soren and Jade) next to each other is a bad idea, so they sit on either end with Frog and Marth between them. Frog sits next to Soren, because Jade keeps making jokes about eating or dissecting him.
3. 5 and 10 are sitting next to each other. Who gets the window seat?
Franziska has forced her way to the window seat, and she keeps threatening to toss that foolish talking cat out of said window if he doesn't shut up. She is even more irritated because there isn't enough room in the van to crack her whip.
4. 3 and 4 are invading one another’s personal space. Who gets annoyed first, and how do they deal with it?
Jade is far more easily annoyed, and the two keep threatening to light each other on fire. Mario uses a Starman to become invincible and avoid any potential attacks.
5. What habit does 8 have that might get on 2’s nerves?
Marth is too idealistic for Raine's tastes. She keeps reminding him that you sometimes have to make sacrifices to save the world. To make things worse, he fell asleep during one of her lectures on archaeology.
6. Who’s more likely to start up a round of "99 Bottles," 1 or 7?
Neither. Soren hates stupidity, and Link is too quiet.
7. Where is number 7? It's not in Sora's journal either.
8. You stop at a gas station and 5 and 3 make a snack-and-supply run. What do they bring back?
Mario brings back 10 pizzas. Franziska brings a case of bottled water and ear plugs.
9. 6 and 8 brought CDs. What’s on their playlist?
Both are medieval-ish swordsmen who can't quite figure out the CD player. When they finally do, everyone else gets sick of their collection of bardic songs.
10. Who’s the more notorious backseat driver, 2 or 10?
Although neither of them actually know how to drive, Raine is by far worse. She corrects just about every decision you make behind the wheel. Meowth just tests the driver's sanity by making obnoxious remarks and insulting his/her ability to drive.

|Most annoying songs ever!
I'm collecting mp3's of the most annoying songs I can find. I'm thinking of making a CD, but I don't know what it would be good for except pissing off my family or my roommate.
So far the list includes:
the Hamsterdance Song
Crazy Frog song (the original)
"I am a Gummi Bear" by Gummibar (English version, but the German is equally annoying.)
"I Wanna Suck on your Lollipop" by DJ Alligator Project
I also thinking of "Daikenkai," possibly the most irritating DDR song ever. Any suggestions for most annoying songs in the world?

|Song lyric meme
Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play IN A BLOG ENTRY, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING![Although I have a feeling someone will do this].
I had to skip a few because they either had no lyrics or I simply could not make them out.( lyricsCollapse )

|Bicycles and stuff
Bike riding definately beats walking. The only problem is, in addition to being sweaty and looking like somebody rubbed a balloon all over my head, now I have the added problem of bicycle grease all over my legs and an uber-wedgie from the seat. I wonder how those sorority girls manage to keep their hair looking so perfect. Either they never walk or ride anywhere, or they have a high hairspray-to-hair ratio. Probably both. I rarely dress sexy or overdose on styling products, so it's a good thing I didn't rush. I don't think I would have made it into any sororities looking the way I do right now.
Difficult classes are a confidence-killer. I had a hard enough time understanding calculus in high school, but now I have the added problem of not understanding the discussion leader either. His accent is really thick, and his handwriting is almost as bad as a doctor's. I feel like a moron because I've forgotten all the high school math I "should already know." I think I need to look into tutoring. I don't know how chemistry is going to turn out because it's too early to tell. If I do well in English lit and psychology (which I should), I'll probably have a decent GPA. Changing majors is another possibility.
I finally went by the infirmary to get that sinus infection taken care of. Hopefully I'll stop sneezing soon. I don't know why all required materials aren't listed on the book list. I've had to buy course notes for calculus, the English textbook isn't available yet, and I need another piece of equipment for chemistry. Textbooks and materials are such a ripoff! Current Mood: dirty

|First day of college
So summer's over and school starts again. This time, though, things are a little different. I've moved out of my mom's house, and now I'm a college student. I actually moved in on Saturday, but classes didn't start until today (Wednesday).
Here's how my first day's been so far:
7:15 AM- Alarm clock doesn't go off. Note to self: Learn how to properly program the thing.
7:30(?) til 8:00- Eat quick breakfast (cereal bar) and get dressed. Attempt to look nice, then realize I'll probably look like I've been beat up by the time the day is over. Forget to-do list I made last night. This leads to becoming unable to complete an errand due to forgetting the required paperwork.
8:00-Leave house, just miss the 8:00 bus. Note to self: Leave BEFORE 8:00.
About 8:05- Realize that I'm wearing a skirt and my legs need shaving. Hope nobody notices.
8:15- Next bus arrives 5 minutes late.
8:30-First class begins. Realize I'm not there yet. Arrive a couple of minutes late but don't miss anything major.
8:50-Realize this class isn't going to be the total piece of cake I thought it was going to be.
9:20-Class ends. Head to bookstore to buy disk I forgot to buy yesterday.
Sometime after 10:00-arrive at next class early. Read over psychology text from last class, but get distracted talking to a classmate.
10:40-Calculus begins. Arrive on time.
About 11:00-Realize just how much high school math I've forgotten.
11:30- Leave calculus class, head for lunch.
Noon- Discover long lines at Taco Bell. Realize I'm not going to be eating any time soon. Browse bookstore to kill time.
About 12:30 PM- Decide I've spent too long in the bookstore. Leave without buying anything.
About 12:35 PM- Make the best discovery a college student can make (no, not answers to the finals or a keg party): FREE FOOD! Take samples of Pepsi, hot dogs, Sobe, and a sno-cone.
About 12:45- When asking for directions, discover I've accidentally gone past the classroom building where I'm supposed to be. Whose stupid idea was it to build classrooms down an off-campus side street?
12:50-Arrive at ridiculous location off the main campus. Barely make it to classroom on time.
1:40- Finish class. Run one final errand, then search for bus stop. Wait for bus longer than the expected 10 minutes.
2:40- Finally arrive home, still not having eaten any real food and smelling somewhat like a sweaty basketball player. Feet are blistered from wearing inappropriate shoes, and I look sort of like I've been hit by a bus. Make to-do list for tomorrow/Friday.
Maybe I exaggerated a little about the shape I arrived home in, but I do need a shower, food, and a good assault on my hair with a brush. Current Mood: sore
|Wednesday, May 25th, 2005|
Remind me not to stuff myself with Mexican food again. Urgh. I think I need another Rolaid. Chips + cheese dip + refried beans + quesadilla= upset stomach.
I also need to stop buying games and DVDs. I'm broke again. I picked up Kingdom Hearts on Saturday, and today I bought the new GBA Fire Emblem game. Here I am supposed to be saving for college... Current Mood: sick
|Tuesday, May 24th, 2005|
Whoah, I can't believe it...I'm actually a high school graduate! I couldn't help but tear up looking at my diploma. I knew it meant I was finished with high school forever. (Contrary to popular belief, high school is not always the best time of one's life.) I was upset that my father couldn't make it, and apparently, so was my mother. She left him a rude message on his answering machine. Hope he doesn't take it out on me. The graduation ceremony was pretty much uneventful, except for a few funny moments. The microphone kept bottoming out, the high honor graduates (me included) sang the school song and a few guys thought it would be funny to sound bad on purpose, and one boy tried to walk offstage before the superintendent could turn his tassel. Talk about eagerness to leave! My hat actually fell off again, but at least it didn't hit the floor.
There was one more disappointment. I always pictured myself at the top of my class, winning all kinds of awards and getting lots of recognition. There was someone like that, but it wasn't me. I wish I could have picked up a few more scholarships. I was really hoping to be one of the ones who received a lot of scholarships, but I wasn't. The ones I did get (two of which I already knew about) will pay for most of tuition and housing. (I'm actually going to live in a scholarship house.) I'm not sure how I'm paying for books. College is sooooo expensive! At least I don't have to live in a cardboard box behind the library.
Project Graduation was fun. The whole place looked like an arcade. There was a pool table, poker and blackjack tables(no betting of actual money!), a Dance Dance Revolution-type game, and a lot of inflatable things. There was an inflatable obstacle course, a giant inflatable Twister mat (which was used more for jumping on or resting on), an inflatable boxing ring with giant boxing gloves, and some kind of inflatable thing where the object was to strap yourself in a harness and run as far as possible before the bungee cord snapped you back. Then there was the mechanical bull. No matter how many times you see it, watching your friends fall off a mechanical bull is hilarious. Food was available all night, and door prizes were awarded. I won a gift certificate for a local restaurant and $25 worth of gas. Now all I need is a car to put the gas in. Current Mood: sleepy
|Monday, May 23rd, 2005|
Graduation is tonight. I better get some sleep now, because I'll be up all night at Project Graduation. That may sound like some kind of program to make sure students with borderline grades finish school, but a more descriptive (and accurate) name should be "Project Make Sure the Graduates Don't Get Smashed After Graduation." Baccalaureate was last night, surprisingly short and sweet. The teachers made sure that we all knew that anyone wearing shades or open-backed shoes (later changed to allow dress shoes, just not flip flops) would not walk across the stage to receive a diploma. At graduation practice on Friday, we were also told no gum or cell phones. Wonder why they're being so tough on us? I can understand the cell phone thing, though. Would it kill people to turn the damned things off once in a while?
I'm not too happy right now. My dad called Saturday and said that he probably won't be coming. His girlfriend is in the hospital to (I think) have more tests run. I'd say something about this, but I'm afraid I'd sound selfish. I'm just really disappointed.
Oh, and excuse the kinda sucky music. It's our class song. I didn't choose it. Current Mood: tired
|Saturday, May 21st, 2005|
I talked my aunt (same one who was mad at me last week, now she's not) into getting an appointment to have my eyebrows waxed. Not the best idea in the world. It feels like sticking masking tape over your eyebrows and yanking as hard as possible. (Actually, that would probably be just as effective as hot wax.) So now I have a bit of a sore face. I swear the woman at the salon took more off the right eyebrow than the left. I pictured coming out of the whole thing looking like a red-masked raccoon, but I look more like I'm wearing pink eyeshadow. It hurt, but not as much as I expected. I think I'll stick to bushy brows, perhaps with the occasional plucking of stray hairs. Thank God she didn't decide I needed a bikini wax, too.
It struck me as odd that people who style hair for a living often look like they're the ones most in need of a new hairstyle. Some of the women at the salon I went to today looked like they'd overdosed on hairspay and quite possibly had a larger mass of styling product than actual hair on their heads.
While having my hair cut, I got to thinking about things. Like how it annoying it is when my grandfather asks me what I'm thinking about. Sometimes I'm honestly not thinking about anything, and sometimes I just don't want him to know. I came up with some possible responses to give next time he asks:
"Oh, I was just reviewing my plans for world domination. Say, how would you like to be my second-in-command?"
"I'm sorry? What was that again? I was in the middle of an explicit sexual fantasy and couldn't hear you."
"I was just wondering if walruses can get mange. You know, since they don't have much hair..."
"'What are you thinking about?' You know, it's bad grammar to end a sentence with a preposition."
"What are YOU thinking about?"
"That's funny. I thought you were a mind-reader and already knew that."
"Oh, nothing, I was just thinking how silly your comb-over looks." (seriously, he has one)

|I'm so evil!
I posted a phony fanfic chapter to the one of the message boards I visit. I kept threatening to kill off a character, and I actually did it...but I made it into a dream sequence. It's official: Doing stuff like this means I have no life.
Graduation practice in about an hour. I don't want to go, but if I don't, I'll probably end up looking like a fool on Monday. Current Mood: devious
|Thursday, May 19th, 2005|
Nobody has commented. I don't even know if anybody's read this. Oh well, maybe later.
Honestly, there isn't much to say right now except I really hope I get to go on that church youth group trip. Coming up with the money is the problem, especially since I lost the bottom half of my retainer. Why should it cost $125 to make half a freaking plastic retainer? Current Mood: apathetic
|Tuesday, May 17th, 2005|
|I have a headache
Not much is going on. This is looking to be a pretty slow summer. Maybe I should do something constructive, like cleaning the house or writing fanfiction. (Hey, when you have 5 or 6 unfinished stories, that IS doing something constructive). I bought an Azumanga Daioh DVD last weekend for $6.99 at Best Buy. I've never seen anime so cheap. Naturally, I had to spread the word. I still need to finish watching it.
Yep, it's been a slow day. I think my guinea pig is having more fun sleeping and running around her cage than I am. I wonder if guiena pigs get sinus headaches? I sure have one. Current Mood: bored
|Sunday, May 15th, 2005|
I've been having some really weird dreams lately. Usually, my dreams are pretty weird, but these have been exceptionally weird. A couple of days ago, I dreamed I was escaping from Nazi Germany. For some odd reason, I kept outrunning trains and stealing vehicles (including a bulldozer.) No, I don't think they had some of the technology I dreamed about during the WW2 era (especially not laser-scanning identification machines.)
Last night, my dreams took a turn for the bizarre. Between the people in bad historical costumes and the blue soccer-playing gorilla creatures, I think I'm going nuts. Then, I dreamed about a cartoon bunny by the name of "P.K. Hunnybunch" complete with his own annoying theme song. Yep, I'm losing it.
My friend and I created this Quickkwiz. Current Mood: weird
I will not eat Skittles during church.

I will not eat Skittles during church.
I will not...aw heck, I like Skittles too much to stop. I'll just have to be more discreet about the crunching. Had to wear my cap & gown to church, and the cap fell off twice. I may have to pin it on come graduation night. I saw my aunt afterwards, and we managed to have a civil conversation, though I could sense some tension present.
I think I'll clean the house tomorrow. I don't have anything better to do. Current Mood: hungry
