Hands down.

Did I mention it's also one of the best games ever?

If you unexpectedly won a $10,000, how would you spend it?

I'd spend it all on paying bills or paying off part of a mortgage or buying electronics or refridgerators/stoves/etc that may be needed at the apartments, since I'm going to need to learn how to take care of them. I don't want to inherit debt.

I don't have any real bills that I can't pay off immediately anyway. I'm ok with myself with money. So yes, flist, I am poor but I'm marrying Germany (eventually). We're inheriting Grandpa Rome's properties and Germania-san's properties. XD

Hey guys! I live! Sorry about not commenting or keeping up or talking with you all. ;_; Just been quite busy. I swear, I *do* read your entries.

Okay, now that I've failed more midterms and probably a class, I'm gonna relax a bit despite the fact I should study. Sigh. Alas, I've got day shift tomorrow from 730a-4p, then working monday graveyard (sunday night when everyone's sleeping) from 12a-8a or so. Sigh. It always tires me out.

I've still got projects to plan, chapters to read and an application essay to write.

So basically, these things have taken over my life:

- SF Giants WORLD SERIES: So I was really good with school until I started paying attention to the Giants again. WE WON. I paid attention more to games than school.

- School. As usual, but I've been pretty bad and lax lately with studying due to the Giants.

- Will Clark. Look him up. Will The Thrill Clark.

- Work.

- Applying to CLS.

Sigh. I need to sleep. XD Today, it was Manny Pacquiao. Woo.

Though IGN isn't all that great anyway.

Does anyone know how to write a statement of interest?

I'm trying to get into an internship, and I know what a personal statement is, and I know what a cover letter/letter of interest is. (I think the letter of interest/cover letter are the same.) I don't know what a statement of itnerest is, only I hear it's a less formal version of a cover letter. Does anyone know the differences?

I'm looking stuff up on the internet (CAUSE YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET IS TRUE LOLOLOL) but does anyone know? I could REALLY use the help.

Thanks guys.

Since my DS went and broke on me for the 2nd time. >/ Then I wasn't motivated to buy YET ANOTHER 3RD DS, so I didn't play for another year til now. Fast forward 9 months after my DS broke and Al finally buys me another one.

I went for Yuzu's path first since I want to go from the worst endings to the best (aka the endings I want to see the most) so that way I don't get bored. ;-;

I'm doing Amane's now (2nd run) and I dislike her. Probably cause of the whole arrogance thing with the Shomonkai and their all-knowingness with the battles to come. I love Naoya, and his spoiler only makes me love him more. Amane just seems kinda boring and high and mighty. I dislike that. Boring. But hey, that's just me, and I'm sure I fall within a majority than a minority in that thinking Naoya is more awesome, and far more relateable/understandable.

>/ I really don't like her shit-talking him. RAWR. Oh well. So far, I'm just level grinding just cause.

>/ Since I will be doing all the paths, I'm pissed off that Kaido/Naoya path has certain people leave. WELL FUCK YOU THEN. I LIKE THEIR IDEA. Am I the only one who thinks MC would RULE THE WORLD benevolently without God? Oh well. I guess MegaTen got tired of the GOD IS EVIL path for one game.

>/ I dunno. I dislike the angels and their arrogance. I guess I'm too used to sympathizing with the devil.

MEHHHHH. Freakin' Amane. Poor Naoya. I'm just pissed the others don't join MC cause he would rule the world. Don't they believe in him? Obviously not. Oh well. The neutral endings tend to be the idealistic ones anyway. Go Gin/Atsuro ending route? Probably last.

- XD Man, I should just stop reading 'discussions' on hetalia since it has insane amounts of wank, while hetalia_wank is far more awesome.

- Anyway. XD Took me forever to go to sleep one night, probably cause I was reading lots of wank. XD Hahaha my fault. Still I like how awesome the wank thread is vs. the main comm. Reminds me of the old days where people didn't get attacked for having opinions.

- IRL, I've finally decided on a hair salon to get my hair cut and styled. I picked San Jose, since there are more moderate prices here than San Francisco (I find SF has either cheap places or EXPENSIVE places) and I think I like San Jose better. I picked a really TINY place in Japantown, called Orange Crush Studios. I hear it's moving soon. AUGH. Woe is me. Oh well.

- Also, YAY PROP 8 OVERTURNED. WOOHOO! o_o Now to watch the slow process of appeals. EITHER WAY, THIS ROCKS.

- I also fucking finally got my parking badge (one of them anyway - for graveyard) today. However, since I never drive despite having my license, I'm a bit afraid to drive tonight since it will be my first time going to work driving myself, thus I really do not want any further needed dangers/distractions. However, I should drive. Also, I still need to ask for the car tonight should I decide to. OTL I AM SO PATHETIC.

- Also, since I've had LJ for so long, I'm considering getting a paid account. I kind of regret not getting one of those permanent accounts back then, cause now I want to rename my account over and over again. or at least, I've wanted one username back in the day, and I had LJ back when you had to INVITE people over. Anyway, but no, I didn't think it through, and now everyone else has cool usernames.

;_; I want a cool username too!

Also, am wondering to get a paid account for more userpics. However, I don't even use my own userpics enough with a free account. Also wondering if I should turn this journal friends only in the INSANELY small case that someone finds me from IRL that I myself didn't bring in.

IDK, anyone got any advice for me? Damn my indecisiveness.

- I used up all my vacation time at work, but I asked for this Friday off (yesterday too UGH) since it was my cousins wedding. UGH, I know I should have asked for it earlier/should have planned for it, but it's at least 3 hours away drive, and thankfully it's in the afternoon, but I don't want to be tired...

Ugh, I feel horrible. I think I'll tell my boss (she let me have it off) that I can work Friday if she needs me to, I'll just leave early on Friday but uggggh I feel bad.

So I went to sleep around 10am happy today. (What? I sleep during the day. Gotta work them graveyard hours!) I came home around 830am and did my usual checking of email, business etc. Checked the hetalia for more wank, since I was one of the parties who agreed to post the Funimation address to send them an email (and eventually a letter) saying I disapprove of where the dub is going.

I don't hate on the people who like the dub. Hell, I enjoyed the dub. Until those script changes came in.

and then so there's a civil post of, "Hey don't like the script changes? Send in your feedback here in a civil, mature manner. Please don't attack each other like before."

Luckily, since I slept during the day, and apparently, the mods have worked their powers over the hetalia in the mean time. I was unaware of this, and I'm kind of sad I missed the chance to be able to talk to people. Yes I'm weird. ANYWAY.

I came home, and checked the comm. Was glad to see there weren't too many trolls or wank. :D Got to respond to some, :D and got into a few heated debates. But in the end, I came out with a few friends despite having differing opinions. I came out seeing that, we didn't tear each other apart, and we didn't bash each other, and honestly that's REALLY refreshing.

I was tired of hearing, "Don't like it? Don't watch it!" What? I love Hetalia, but I don't like the script changes. "GTFO OF THIS FANDOM IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT" How immature. "YOU GUYS ARE BUTTHURT ELITISTS GOD GET OVER IT" o-o Well. "We history majors talk jokes like this all the time!" I'm sure that's fine and good WHEN IT IS AN INSIDE JOKE. When you put it mainstream (such as the Hetalia dub) I'm sure unless it's South Park/Avenue Q/dead baby humor when it's supposed to be, this won't fly in Hetalia. Of course, there are people who like the dub and that's fine. To be mocked for having an opinion? Blah, lame guys. Lame! :D

But it's okay. This wank was actually kind of good since it revived my faith in Hetalia, and I have soem more friends. :D I'm sad that there was some condescending people along with trolls, but meh. :3 I came out on top, with new friends, revitalized faith in the fandom and knowing nothing is perfect, and all that.

I've already emailed Funimation, I'll send a snail mail sometime next week. Hey new fwiends.

BTW, time to continue the hetalia meme! WHO WOULD I GO SHOPPING WITH?

Well... I can never choose just one can I?Collapse )

Taken from a comment off of Puel's journal.

Puel explains my feelings so eloquently

God, now I'm kind more than just sad with being associated with Hetalia's fandom, but now I'm fucking pissed. JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT BOTHERED BY IT DOESN'T MAKE IT ANY LESS WRONG.

Man, I fucking hate kids who think we're butthurt elitists cause we kinda CARE ABOUT SHIT.


And go ahead anon, link that Avenue Q shit. I love Avenue Q. :D Unlike you, anon, I FUCKING LIVE NEXT TO THE FUCKING PROJECTS. (OHOHOHO I BET YOU CAN GUESS MY RACE NOW HAHAHA) I FUCKING BET YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT SHIT IS. So don't even try to back yourself up with, "U MAD BRO. Hetalia's offensive anyway!"

NO. NO. NO NO NO. Hetalia was lighthearted and never made light of tragedies like they do in the dub. AND I AM NOT FUCKING SORRY I TAKE RACISM AND GENOCIDE SERIOUSLY.


I'm so sad. Hetalia and its fandom was so laidback, and filled with happy people. We weren't a cesspool of douches back then, or at least to me that's what it looks like now. Some friends are debating whether or not to cosplay to be associated with that kind of crap. We already deal with a lot of shit, and I'm getting tired of this 100% SUPPORT HETALIA shit from idiotic kids who are more than likely blinded by privelege.

I feel bad for friends now.

Fuck you Funimation. It's a good thing I never bought a damn single DVD off you. As much as I want a Hetalia DVD, I think I'll just rip one off a friend's or something. I can't support SCRIPT CHANGES and DARK EDGY SHIT that really belongs on South Park, and not raping Hetalia's work. Just more reasons to hate us.

But now, people can hate Hetalia with justifiable reason.

I don't know if I wanna elope with Hetalia, or say goodbye to the fandom. However, I'll probably just lurk and still cosplay. Then Germany and I will just not approve.
