Preparing for Finals

It's the advent of finals week! Run for your lives!
But seriously, you can tell finals week is approaching just by looking at the dark circles under my eyes. If I wasn't sleeping very well before, I'm not sleeping at all these days. I think it's partly due the stress and then probably also due to the cackling hyenas on my floor who shriek like banshees until the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes I wonder where my CA is and why she isn't around to tell them to fuck off and be quiet...but I noticed that she often works the night shift at the front desk so yeah....
I have a LOT to do for the next two weeks and that's why I haven't been updating as much. I've been neglecting my Lolita blog even more than this one and I feel just awful about it, but I don't have the energy to write anything. And I haven't really been keeping up on the lasted Lolita whatsits or dressing up, so I feel like it'd be pointless to post right now. My daily style blog? H…

66 posts....I really need to get on here more. :(

I don't have a whole lot of time between classes right now, but I thought I'd pop on and share this little gem with you. Onto the Goth quizzes! Rawr!

Bet you practice Wicca or Paganism or possibly more liberal Christianity. You probably love Dead Can Dance, anything ethereal, and might be vegetarian. You probably also like to hug people. What Kind of Goth are You? - Created by ptocheia
Uh, yup. Sure. 
Well, they got the Pagan aspect correct. I'm not a huge fan of Dead Can Dance, ethereal as in what?, and I'm most definitely NOT a vegan. I love me some red meat! ^_^ 
And I'm the least touchy-feely person you'll ever come across. I shoot death glares when people even attempt to shake my hand, half the time. So 
Anyways.....I'm sure I'll be back later or something.

Good Afternoon Children

I must apologize for the lack of posts recently - I've been buried under mountains of stress and struggling with time management. College life does that do a person. Final exams are coming up soon, but once I'm on Winter Break I'll have lots of time to regale you all with the details of my insignificant life.

But here are some brief updates of the goings-on in my world:

1) I finally did the plasma donation thing, last Tuesday. It was much less scary than I thought and so I have an appt. scheduled for today and then another one for Thursday. It'll give me time away from school and allow me an hour or so to work on reading things for leisure instead of knowledge. 

2) My Thanksgiving was great, how was yours? There was no big celebration or family get-together but Mom made turkey and all the fixings anyways. My boyfriend came over and then we spent the weekend boozing up and playing card games. I have them addicted to Apples to Apples now. If you're not familiar with the…

*Prick*...and here comes the blood.

At about 1:05 pm I scampered off over to the Miller Center (library) bus stop to take the metro bus here in St. Cloud for the first time. I rode to the transit center and caught Pantown over to Biolife - the plasma donation center. I had to walk a few blocks from the stop and boy, did I walk fast. It's so cold outside today. >_<

Anyways, when I got there, they got me all set up with their computer systems and made me a file. I was weighed and given a blood pressure test. My heart rate was a little high, but that's because I'd just booked it from a few blocks away. The nurse was going to check it again after she tested my blood, but in the end she didn't have to.

My iron levels were good enough, but my protein levels were too high. Seriously? I hardly even eat meat and my protein levels were high. I'm blaming my multivitamin. I won't take it before an appointment from now on. Urgh. So basically I got entered in the system and had my finger pricked. My only s…

Holiday Shopping for Goths

I don't know about you, but I tend to jump on the holiday shopping bandwagon pretty early in the year. It's not even Thanksgiving here in America and I'm already starting to think of ideas for what to give/make/buy for the holidays. 

Being a broke college student though, I can't really go all out and buy the people I love the latest new gadgets and tons of "in" stuff. So I'm trying to think of things that I can make for relatively cheap that will be of use AND still cherished as a delightful holiday gift. 

Problem is...most of the things I want to make tend to have a bit of Goth flair to it - black lace, skulls and skeleton keys, candy canes dripping with blood, stuff like that....and I know that not all of the people on my shopping list would appreciate something like that. 

Then there's the matter of people possibly trying to shop for me. I have my doubts about receiving anything for the holidays though, since my family is so disjointed these days an n…

Clearance Halloween Target Haul

I hit up Target on Friday afternoon to see what was left of the Halloween decor. I ended up getting quite a few items. All of what is posted above and then a spooky candy and a ghost coffee mug. Most of it was 50% off so I got some great deals! And the best part is, all of this stuff is useful outside of Halloween too.

I put the bat lights up around my window. Super awesome. <3

Knowing Better and of Dashed Hopes

I really ought to know better. I know I shouldn't believe a word out of anyone's mouth. Ever. Because people lie. And they lie for many different reasons. They lie because they feel obligated to "help out" and then panic when someone accepts. They lie because they think they might be able to do something for you, but really can't. Or maybe they lie just because they like to watch you squirm when you find out what was promised ain't happening.

I don't fucking like squirming.

As it turns out, this Britney individual WON'T be giving me a ride home tomorrow. So now it's a mad dash to see if my boyfriend can give me a lift tonight (how last minute of me) or hopefully harass someone into doing it Friday, if it doesn't conflict with their schedule.

Because the more I think about it, the more depressed I am at the idea of sitting here by myself for a whole weekend. I NEED to relax. I NEED to recuperate. I have exams most of next week and I just can't…

Out of the Stone Age

It seems I'm slowly but surely starting to crawl out of my cozy little bat-ridden cave: I got a cellphone. I activated it today.

I've had a cellphone before, quite a few years ago. This was back when I was working full-time and could afford to vomit up enough money so T-Mobile would stop harassing me. This was back before the era of qwerty keyboards and Facebook apps. This was when text messaging was in its neanderthal stage.

After my little jaunt in Montreal and suffering quite a few years without gainful employment, I've been reluctant to jump back on the cellphone bandwagon. Truth be told, I liked not having one. Most people seem to thrive on the idea that they can be connected to people EVERYWHERE, all the time. I'm, admittedly, adverse to that idea. I like my privacy. I enjoy my alone-time.

But lately I've come to realize that so much alone time just isn't that fulfilling and I crave more social contact. So I caved in and let Chris buy me a nice little cel…
