"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

(no subject)

lookee! i made theme icons!

woooo i rock. i didn't schedule any morning classes for monday, wednesday, and friday, so i don't have classes until 1:30 and 2:30! lazy mornings are great, plus i'll have more time for last-minute papers when they come.

random things i want to do before i die:

- go to london and spend a week just wandering around the british museum (i've only been there once, and a few hours is enough to truly amaze you, but you can only see a tiny bit in that time)
- see rocky horror AND hedwig live (but not at the same time)
- publish something and make money from it (if i can do it many times, i'll accomplish my "career" goal)
- have a pet pig
- visit the parthenon and a ganesha temple in india
- let's just put it this way: i don't want to die a virgin, but i don't plan on taking care of that any time soon
- get over my fear of vampires (if they didn't bite people in the NECK or other sensitive areas, they'd be fine)
- look fabulous in drag (it will be hard to pull off with my body, but i'm sure if i wore a suit, tied my hair back, and had a fake goatee or something i'd look all right...)
- get incredibly drunk under safe circumstances just so i know what it's like (when i'm 30 or so, i'll get my closest friends together and then drink until i'm not quiiiiiiiiiite sick, then have them videotaping me acting stupid so i can laugh at myself and know NEVER to drink again)
- meet tori amos

...and that's all i can think of.

classes were all right. i know my shakespeare class will be interesting (we're starting out with "a midsummer night's dream" - my favorite!) since shakespeare rocks and prof. bulman is hilarious when he gets really passionate about whatever he's lecturing about. stats will be all right, but i'll probably realize how much math i've forgotten (i haven't taken math since 11th grade, and even though i'm good at it, i hate it). but hey - it's psych. tomorrow i have my FS (another english class - why did i have to take 3 this semester?) and writing poetry. poetry should be fun, even though 95% of my poems suck and i don't understand most poetry. well, this class will help me become a better writer AND reader. megan is lucky, she's taking a playwriting class at slippery rock. ah well. i think my friend is in the poetry class, and i'll probably see a bunch of other friends there too. a lot of my friends here are english majors or minors (we humanities nerds stick together!) and i'm usually in the same english classes with the same people over and over. woohoo. by the time i graduate, i'll probably be really well-acquainted with half the english majors and a good portion of the faculty. ah well. so that's school stuff.

someday i want to write a fabulous musical that gathers a cult following like rocky horror or hedwig. of course... i have no musical ability whatsoever. perhaps i'll cowrite it with a fantastic composer and we'll both be utterly famous and people will dress up in silly costumes and see our shows repeatedly. yup. in my wildest dreams.

whoop-de-friggin'-doo. i guess after this post i'll go to bed. i actually have to get up in the morning for class (9:30 isn't too bad, but i always hate waking up before 10 anyway).

since i'm a compulsive online buyer-of-STUFF, i did some shopping. they have really kcheap stuff at half.com, so i got dragon warrior monsters 2 for game boy (the tara version - it's about time i started playing a female in my game boy rpg adventures, and dragon warrior 2 won't let me play beth the mage, i have to be the male hero and can't use magic... grrr...) and dragon half on dvd. i was getting bored with dwm1 and dw1&2 since i got them all in high school and have beaten all the games at least twice. so it's time for a change. i think dragon warrior 3 was released yesterday, but i'm going to wait until i get bored with dwm2 to get that. ummm i need to branch out and play some different rpgs. i mean, i love the dragon warrior themed games and they're painfully addicting, but i gotta play something else for a change. and not pokemon, because the neighborhood kids got tired of that so now i have nobody to trade with, and i only need 6 more pokemon. yes, i know i'm a total nerd, but if it wasn't for pokemon (and my friend nicole, who introduced the term "rpg" to me) i never would have gotten into rpgs and i'd be stuck playing mario and conventional adventure games. i love mario and everything, but rpgs are definitely more fun. i should start playing the REAL rpgs, with dice and everything. well, that's what argo is for. i'll eventually join a game. oh, and since i also got dragon half, it now means that some anime has found its way to my ever-growing dvd collection (gasp, cough, urp, die, choke, wheeze, yeah). woohoo! i feel so... special. and even though dragon half is only 2 episodes long, it's insanely silly and they use EXLAX in it at one point. since i have a 3rd grade sense of humor, it's perfect for me. and i like the whole inter-species thing. yep. i've seen both episodes twice. they rock, even though they're pointless. and they used exlax! *giggles insanely* yes, i know it's pathetic that the word "exlax" still makes me laugh even 3 years after the chemistry class that started it all.

there i go, talking about stuff nobody really cares about. oh well! tomorrow is going to be a fairly long day. bye!
