Ramblings, ramblings, ramblings. I am not going to even try hard to make this understandable. I have the strong urge to get my thoughts written down before I forget them and so they stop spinning around my mind.
Exciting developments! I WILL graduate and walk the stage this December, BUT I am still staying at college an extra year and a half to double degree in WFSC. So two degrees, one walk in Dec 2014, the other in May 2016.
I gave my computer a virus today because I really wanted to read the original books ROTG was based off. My local Barnes and Noble only has the 4th book out, "The Sandman and the War on Dreams". The first book is called Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King. Good God, dramatic name much? the second book is called E. Aster Bunnymund and the Warrior Eggs at the Center of the Earth! Exclamation point is part of the title. As if the movie wasn't action packed enough, these books certainly have me itching to read them, so much so I went to a suspicious site looking for an online book and my computer got sick. I think I managed to remove all the malware though. UGH my COLLEGE LIBRARY doesn't carry the CHILDRENS BOOKS I'm looking for! Fun Fact! William Joyce wrote/is writing The Guardians of Childhood books, but production for Rise of the Guardians began even before the first book was in print. There will be six books total, but only 4 are out currently. Joyce ALSO worked on the movies Robots, Epic, and Meet the Robinsons! I believe each movie was based on a book of his one way or another. He also helped create the disney jr. show Rollie Polie Olie. I can totally see the connections between that and the movie Robots. Joyce also did character concept art for Toy Story and A Bug's Life. Did any of you watch George Shrinks as a kid? I did, and surprise! He created that too.
I realize my dorm room is very depressing. There is one small window that doesn't let in much light, and we keep a curtain over it anyway so the courtyard light doesn't shine in at night. The walls on my side are bare and plain. I know I should do art, but I kind of don't want to in this environment. It's so lonely and empty.
It's only wednesday? Ugh, it's almost 7 and I'm so tired. What did I do monday? Ran around campus doing something, I think. let's see, it'll just be easier to compile all the stuff I did and not worry about the date it happened. So far this week I;
-had to get a new student ID because my old one was so old and used, scanners couldn't read it meaning I couldn't get into my dorm room or buy food.
-speaking of food, the Common's Convenience store changed AGAIN. It used to be rattlers, then it became Outtakes, then it went back to Rattlers, and now it's Aggie Express. I can't use my rattlers bonus reward card at it any more. And it seems like the stock has been greatly reduced. There's just less.... stuff in it. this makes me sad. Less variety of food for me to buy, since I can't be bothered to drive all the way to HEB to buy my food. I hope they still accept dining dollars. If they don't, I'm fucked.
-I ate at a dorm hall cook out instead of the big, campus wide gig 'em week cook out. less lines, and more social people. I met a fellow brony and his legit birth name is PIPPIN.
-Yesterday I went to the local Barnes and Noble, found the fourth book of the Guardians series, and also bought two books from the wings of fire series. It's like warrior cats, but with dragons. and a lot more gore-y. you know, for kids! I also picked up book 10 of the How To Train Your Dragon series and read half of it before going to Fuddruckers to eat with Cepheid Variable. My roommate and two of her friends came a long. it was great seeing old friends again.
-after eatting at Fuddruckers I was invited to go swimming at an appartment pool, I did go. I rode in the back of a pickup for the first time in my life. It felt so illegal and fun. I swam in the dark for an hour and a half with two friends and many sexual jokes were made.
-Today I went to the barnes and noble in the MSC, and out of sheer luck I found another copy of How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel (book 10). I sat down for 90 minutes and read the other half. the msc bookstore didn't have any of the wings of fire books or guardains books... I should just be happy they had that one. There was only one shelf for children since it was a college book store.
-I spent the rest of the day running back and forth between councilors, getting signatures and paper work. I added one more class to my schedule, so now I'm taking 4 classes and undergrad research. I still haven't talked to my research professor. I can't get a hold of him. I'm worried, but I have nothing to do tomorrow, so I will try to go to his office.
-snails are happy.
-I haven't been to practically any of the gig 'em week programs. I only even considered the ones that said they offered free food. I forgot being in college means you have to get your own food every day. Sometimes its the only thing that makes me leave the dorm.
-On move in day I realized I forgot to pack my clock so we went to walmart and I got a new one. I didn't get a chance to look in their toy section for mega toothless. Unfortunately, I did not realize how bright my new clock was, and it's too confusing. I thought it was simple, but it isn't. I learned how to set the alarm, but I can't turn it off. It kept going off every 15 minutes, so I just unplugged it since it was so annoying and bright. I will be using my phone and watch.
-my roommate is super nice. She's a sophomore. She took the side of the dorm I had the last two years. It's a bit disorientating. We also don't have a trashcan which is more of a problem for me. SHe's out of the dorm a lot because she works which makes me feel unproductive simply because I have nothing vital to do.
-the water here still sucks. I go to all the free food activities and steal as many water bottles as I can.
-I DON"T UNDERSTAND WHY I"M IN SUCH A BAD ROTG MOOD. I RECORDED THE MOVIE AND WATCHED IT THREE TIMES ALREADY THIS WEEK. I REALLY WANT TO READ THE BOOKS BUT I CAN"T SO I READ FAN FICTION INSTEAD BUT THERE"S JUST NOT ENOUGH. I"M PROBABLY GONNA WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN
AND THEN GO TO BED BECAUSE I AM UNREASONABLY TIRED AFTER DOING NOTHING.
-I just want to write fan fiction. Never before have I had three stories in my mind. It hurts keeping it bottled up.
READ THESE FAN FICIONS. THERE REALLY EMOTIONAL;archiveofourown.org/works/6202…archiveofourown.org/works/6835…
