James Cameron’s “Avatar”

saw James Cameron’s “Avatar” in 3D (but not IMAX b/c all the movie times for the rest of the night were sold out) at Palisades Mall.

I really enjoyed it…I was moved. I could probably write more but I’ll just say that very few movies are so enjoyable. It struck some chords with me.

ski trip planning

yay in just the last two-ish hours we’ve planned our ski trip for this year!

figuring out what we’re going to do for dinner/meals is going to be pretty fun haha. …i’m sure i want something slightly tastier than cup noodles hahaha.

should be interesting.

awake

got to bed ~7am. out of bed by ~11:30…AM. ate brunch (bumped into friend, pleasant coincidence). and i’m at work, which i remembered to go to.

YES.

trying to rejoin the ranks of humanity.

defying gravity

i’m not sure what exactly is wrong. something is…very odd. i’ve basically turned nocturnal these last few days. i think i’ve put a combined 40+ hours into playing dragon age. i’ve gone to the dining hall like…twice? three times? four might be pushing it, but i don’t even remember. i’ve barely checked my email, and i don’t think i spent more than 10 seconds tops on any of the emails i glanced at.

what is going on?

at this point. i really don’t understand why these last few days have been like this. everyone else is busy with finals, and these last few days i don’t think my sleep schedule has ever been as off. i think i’ve gotten out of bed when it was dark a few days in a row now. even right now the sky is brightening, as it’s apt to do at around 7 in the morning.

and this is one of my better days.

i can’t do this.

i think it’s all part of a deeper problem, probably what’s been plaguing me all these months. i can’t put words to it exactly. i didn’t see it coming, though. there hasn’t been any really wack stuff happening. i’ve got fun friends and am getting to know some of them better, hanging out with interesting people. so it’s not that.

i forgot that i even had work wednesday. i intend to get up in around 4hrs and go to work.

one of a few parts of dragon age that struck me profoundly was during a part when one of the in-game characters was talking about living on borrowed time, and on how everyone is “dying”…that people should try to make the best of the time they had. and i thought, yeah, that’s the mindset that i’ve been trying to adopt and actually put to use; and i took a mental step back, understanding i was sitting in front of a computer, which was ironic in a sense.

these last few days after getting out of bed it’s usually been around a regular student’s dinner time, and i’ve usually taken the excuse to walk to the dining hall/campus center so as to get minimal exercise plus more importantly, to try to think a few things through and clear my head. obviously i hadn’t made very much headway.

well if i can fall asleep soon after i’m done with this entry i’ll consider that a very small victory, considering that it’ll be one of the earlier days i’ve slept these last few days.

it’s been so ridiculous these last few days. i hate wasting my life. i don’t want to do that. i’m not sure what to do otherwise.

i have to restart. GO!

strange sleep schedule weekend

Waking up naturally at 8am a few min ago, I was curious for a second as to what had happened. After all, it’s not every day that I wake up by myself at such relatively early hours. I wasn’t sure I’d woke up if I needed to use the bathroom or if it was because my throat was really parched or what, so I used the bathroom and drank a lot of liquid.

These last few days have been kind of ridiculous, as they sometimes tend to be. Finals were interesting-ish. I’m glad they’re done. The only grade I have yet to find out is Earth & Life, which I’m hoping will be soon.

I’m trying to remember what happened over the last few days–Friday night was heading over to Livingston to chill with a friend, making magic bars, playing/teaching some piano and teaching some dancing…that resulted in my return to Busch via KnightMover at around 5 in the morning. I think I got up at 5pm Saturday, then ended up staying up the whole night playing Dragon Age mostly, until it was time for to prepare for the RCDT trip. Caught a bus at ARC at around 9:10am, and then the whole day was a lot of slogging through rain. Eleven of us, but pretty fun overall.

After we returned to RU, met up with some Verse|One members at BCC, eventually went to bowling alley (though I didn’t bowl), then to Applebee’s for appetizers, which was quite tasty.

After finally returning to apartment by around 1am or so, I was ready to pass out, and did so.

Now I wanna upload pictures, haven’t done that in a while.

ru screwed

today’s supposed to be the last Badminton practice of the semester, as pointed out Wednesday night at the Sport Club meeting.

so I was naturally surprised to see a text from a friend saying that courts were closed. so naturally I called Werblin right away to confirm and find out details. it seems that there’s a swim meet and that naturally, the swimmers’ gear is being stored in the entire Multi-Sports Room. the friend at Werblin went to take a look and from what it sounds like, if they’d left just one bay open for badminton, they might still have been able to fit us in. but naturally, no.

naturally, i’m rather frustrated.

haha i’m reminded of the last time they (Werblin, whoever schedules this stuff) did something like this and because of that we didn’t have practice like we’re supposed to, and i remember i was just as mad as i am now. funny that it’s something like this that makes me mad.

as a roommate of mine commented, it’s just the RU Screw. naturally, i hate it when this happens.

haha i’m suddenly feeling rather amused, probably at the stupidity of the whole situation. the possible disregard for badminton club’s practice, the fact that something like this would work me up a bit. haha oh well. better an amused grin on my face than a death glare.

that’s why they leave

and at her incredulous–condescending, perhaps–response to a simple question, i laughed too, but with a different understanding–thinking, “and this is why your friends drop away, because no one likes being around people that put them down.”

well, that’s too bad. hope she’ll learn.

never fails to depress

i cannot believe myself.

the last like 48 hrs have been one of the weirdest things in terms of my sleeping. i don’t even remember what exactly i’ve been doing. studying a bit.

i like went to sleep at prob 9am or something today. then i just got up 2hrs ago at 6pm. what???

exam tmrw that should be ok as long as i put in maybe hour and a half, 2 exams thurs that cover a bunch of material, so i need to focus on those too.

wowwww hahaha.
