quicky (hopefully)

Thursday went to lecture and art. No printing lab, since we still didn’t get the new press. ^^;; A printing class without the printing press to work on. Um. Not much interesting in lecture. Art we had a critique. I was getting kind of antsy, and I kept fidgeting. Maybe because I had only half a cup of ocha in the morning, haha.

It’s kind of frustrating, in art, I don’t feel like I can do the best I can. I just don’t understand how to make what I’m doing better. Am I just … not a designer? Or maybe having an 11-week design course is completely different from the 16-week color and design class I had at a community college.

Mm, lessee, Thursday night I went to bed at 10:30ish then woke up after 8:30 the next morning. I had very weird dreams. O_o Also couldn’t fall asleep for a while. So I had a headache for part of the day. I’m wondering if it was because I didn’t have caffeine, though. I didn’t have caffeine Wednesday on purpose, and I didn’t have a problem (other than feeling tired *snrk*). But I had a full night’s (almost?) sleep Thursday/Friday and I get a headache? Unfair. ;-;

Today I mostly worked on my art journal. Throw in some random computer use there and you’ve got my day. Oh, and I went with C to Best Buy and Borders and Circuit City. Best Buy and Circuit City C was looking for a Wii controller (no luck). Borders we bought Simpsons season 2 at 40% off, and I got the Post Secret book and The Tenth Circle both for 25% off.

Now I really should get to bed.

I still remember (not much to remember)

Hmmm … today was rather humdrum. Lecture, art lab, printing lab. Not much special there.

Little tidbits: I stood in line mindlessly waiting for a chicken sandwich during lunch. I went to the library three separate times today. Half the lights in the second floor are turned off, probably for money energy conservation, but there are also quite a few lights that have just plain died. I spent some of the time after art critique talking to a classmate. Woo, go me. :D

The Shining is getting interesting. I didn’t know there was a backstory to Tony! Then again, I’ve only ever seen the parts of the movie where the scary stuff is seen. Wooow, great plot device there.

The Count of Monte Cristo is a lot more convoluted than I remember. I still like the movie with Guy Pierce. I just consider them two different stories in two different mediums (of course, one gets a bit Hollywood-ized at the end, but what do you expect?). They’re both just so much fun! hee.

Oh yeah, this morning the nail of my left index finger tore off. x.x I was closing the trunk of my car. Now, my trunk door is a bit different than you’d expect. You don’t have to slam it down to close it or anything, it’ll close just on its own weight. So I was holding it up with my index finger and I guess I was more tired than I thought because I didn’t realize that I had it resting on my nail? Or maybe it slipped or something, I don’t know. But either way, it got torn off, and I was about to say “Ow!” when I realized that it didn’t really hurt. Just the tip got torn off (of my finger). But anyway, maybe I’m being grotesque talking so much about it.

Or maybe not. I’ve never had a nail broken on this finger before. I’ve had both ring fingers, my right thumb nail, and maybe my right middle finger? I’m not really sure. My finger doesn’t hurt, it just feels really sensitive, and I’ve got it covered in Band-Aids to remind myself that it’s sensitive area don’t do anything that’ll hurt it! Writing my notes was all right. But the problem arose when I got on my laptop … the Band-Aids block the heat that makes the touchpad work! Noooo!! Okay, so I use my middle finger. I’m used to that, in fact I do it quite often. I’m just finding out now though, how much I use my index finger. ahh! I feel a compulsion to use it, and my mind screams “awkward!” when I use my middle finger instead.

Now on to the continuation (end?) of that skip-a-night’s-sleep fiasco. I partly did it hoping my sleep schedule might right itself, but that just doesn’t seem to be the case. *looks at time* (Okay it’s not my sleep schedule that’s messed up; it’s me and my lack of any self-control!) I woke up this morning at 7 fairly easily, which is funny because usually from the time my alarm goes off (6:45) to about 7:20 I’m just rolling over in bed and going back to sleep. But then it hit me about 7:45 that I’m tired. boo. I decided to buy a 20 oz. Wild Cherry Pepsi soda, mostly because I was thirsty. But now I curse that decision, because I don’t want caffeine having been in my body as I try to fall asleep. grr.

scratch that, no sleeping

I didn’t go to sleep last night. *furtive glance* I got in bed sometime after 1:00, and I was still awake at 2:30. I was so annoyed that I figured I might as well stay up the whole night. So I got back on the comp and tinkered around doing something. Then after that I decided to go read the growing pile of unread newspapers. When that got boring I decided to watch Princess Mononoke from 4:30 to 7. *grin*

I had two cups of ocha this morning. I thought that was enough, but … I was falling asleep in class. I finally did what Noelle did: write notes without knowing what I’m writing. XD So weird. For the most part I wrote stuff correctly.

I felt like apologizing to the professor for being so rude. But I didn’t know how weird that would be. mreh. I definitely probably got 1/2 on the quiz today. *blink*

Pretty much for the rest of the day I watched Boogiepop Phantom and drove C around. BP is getting interesting now. Still don’t know if it’s any good.

From about 4:30 to 8:30 I slept. ^^;;; Didn’t eat dinner. I dunno, I don’t like eating so late. Now I’m going to bed.

rise in the morning, sleep in the dark

I think I’m giving up mentally. But that could just be today.

Let’s see … nothing much interesting happened over the weekend. I don’t think. Monday I went to my 9:00 class but remembered an hour before that it was cancelled. XD; Still had lab tho. In lab we learned how to write Postscript. :o Postscript is a code?! (Well obviously, everything computer-wise is a code. But still, I didn’t think the code was that simple… A lot simpler than valid and accessible [X]HTML. *shifty eyes*) I found out I have Adobe Distiller at home, so I can do my project here! AHAHAHAHA! *going slightly crazy*

Today’s Tuesday? For a moment I thought it was Wednesday. Oh well. Probably just thinking ahead. Well. Had lecture. Had art critique. I said I was looking at my piece too long and couldn’t see what to fix, so people in class offered suggestions.

Uhhh … this is a very boring entry. Don’t I have anything else to say? Other than I also had art lecture about 6 hours ago? Oh yeah. Today.

Last night I … don’t remember. *blink* I think I was in bed by 10:30. I probably didn’t fall asleep until midnight. I think I woke up about half a dozen times during the night. One improvement from previous similar episodes: I automatically realized it was dark and went right back to sleep. (One time earlier this year I woke up and started getting ready for classes at one in the morning. *nods*) This morning I woke up at 6:45 so I could sign up for next quarter’s classes (yes I have a really late registration date *kills rhyme*). I had enough time to walk around my room to wake myself up (and prove to myself I wasn’t going to fall over) and pull on a sweatshirt and take out my retainers and make a cup of ocha. Woo, 15 minutes go by fast when you’re not awake!

So the three classes I wanted to sign up for I’m waitlisted for (woo) and I signed up for a fourth which is from 6-7:30 so I’m hoping I get a chance to drop it. *snicker* Won’t get permission numbers for the art class until next week. So I’ve definitely got … 6 units! Woohoo!

After that it was fun. Somehow it zoomed from 7 to 7:30 (giving Livejournal layout help in that time wasn’t a good idea, I suppose) and I had just enough time to make eggohan and get my stuff (including undrunken ocha) and get to my car, where I spilled a little of my ocha and had to run back up to get a rag to wipe off the back window so I could see.

Then when I got back here, I tried to take a nap, or at least rest my eyes for a few minutes, but I couldn’t settle down, I kept getting up. Having a cup of ocha then half a Dr. Pepper at lunch was probably the cause. Even now I’m still moving. O_o Or that may just be some weird … sleep-deprived, half-awake thing…? I don’t know.

Then from 5-ish to 5:35 I put up my new layout and tried fixing things (still don’t know how to make the date show up for every entry). Then ate dinner for 10 minutes before I left for lecture.

Came back, watched Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars. Odd, but I’m thinking of the VM episode more than I am of the GG one. (I just started watching VM this season; it’s right after Gilmore Girls, and I don’t feel like going to bed or getting on the computer. This is pretty much the one night of television that I have. Other than random Mythbusters viewings on Wednesdays, but I usually don’t because Tuesdays and Thursdays are my heaviest days.)

Oh yeah, I got an A/A on my line composition. My teacher wrote on it, “sensitive and sensual.” O_o! Interesting.

So. Layout. Um. It’s Natalie Portman. I was just looking through the galleries at NP.com and thought these were layout-able images. I had a lyric or something to go with it, but I couldn’t remember it, so no text other than flimsysilence.net. I think I randomly picked the colors from the colors that were saved in my Photoshop from whatever project I’d worked on last. *laughs* I do that a lot.

So yeah. I should probably get to bed.
