God, It's Been So Long

And all the pix are x's! Nooooo! About one week before my previous post I got an e-mail from the people at villagephotos telling me that they're completely changing the one function I used. The one I searched the freaking internet for. The free one. The one where I could save pictures on their server and post them on here.

So I don't know quite what I'm going to do yet. I ought to download them to my computer, and the re-upload them to my care2 album and just link 'em. I just wish I had more time to do it. (sigh)

Well. Back to the old drawing board! - Marvin the Martian.

Don't Turn Back Now That We're Here

I'm currently listening to: "Journey to the Past" from Anastasia

All right, I am at school, and by all rights, I should be in class. But... I'm not. Well, not today. I'll get to that in a bit. But first, a word or so from each of my teachers.

First Class- Personal Finance with Ron Kerlagon
I remember... there was this one time a guy who went on a tangent and took someone with him, so I guess it was a cotangent.

Very charismatic teacher, that one. Believes in the almighty dollar, thinks stocks are fun, likes cars (but doesn't really know how they work), and also teaches night classes.

Second Class- Creative Writing: Drama/Playwrighting (And yes, it's spelled correctly. Well, according to my teacher's preferences.) with Douglas Sodeberg

Either she wasn't supposed to be here or she decided at the last minute she didn't want to take the class.

I'm supposed to wright (er... ahum-hem) write two one-act plays or one full-lenth play. You know, I'm thinking about using "Truth" as an outline, but I dunno. Suggestions? Topics? On a side note, Andrew, otherwise known (to me) as 2Qt2BStr8 is in my class! (Sorry Nate, couldn't resist. At least all of you can take comfort in the fact that this won't technically qualify for "teen girl journal" status in a few months.) We've had one class togeather each semester. We crossed paths last semester in philosophy, and then my freshman year we had Major Drag (Major Dramatists I & II) togeather. He's pretty fun to have banter with, and is in the Conservatory Program.

Third Class- Contemporary Drama with Michael Erickson (my Advisor)

The Lord of the Rings is Melodrama... Think of it- "Melo Drama"- Drama with music. Three hours of just dialogue and fighting would be boring. And Simplistic! Hobbit- Good! One-Eyed Demons- BAD!

We watched part of "Waiting for Godot", and are going to finish watching "Gray's Anatomy" on Thursday. Videos every class. I think I could get used to this.

Regrettably, my fourth class, the one that I should, by all rights, be in right now, was cancelled due to lack of teacher. Well, at least for the day. You see, I managed, somehow to get myself into a studio arts class. Even though I feel confident enough to put my pictures up on the internet to show off to the world, I can't show them to qualified people beyond my brother. Even he's not technically qualified since he hasn't graduated from college/high school, he can draw circles around me. And I mean that both literally and figuratively. Anywho, I couldn't state my situation to my teacher since he wasn't there, and I feel really odd asking to do pass/fail, since it does require studio art projects. I don't really want to lose points due to my inability to draw a straight line (or a decent board of wood), but I would like honest opinions. I'd also like to be able to illustrate my own books some day.

My M/W class is tomorrow. I can deal. I also have to stalk down a teacher that changed and incomplete to a very unsatisfactory grade. Unfortunately, I feel really, really lousy about turning in an essay that I rewrote beneath the quality of the original. I can't handle a grade that low, though. Dad can't afford full tuition. Hell, I can't afford full tuition.

And I just signed up for classes for this semester. There's no way I'm turning back.

What a load of...

I believe in God. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in the Holy Spirit.
I also believe that this e-mail I got is a load of crunk.

Please forward this to as many people as possible.

Looking for meaning in life? Tried religion? Scared by the hype that seems to be floating around? Look at all the different religions, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, New Age, Humanism, Latter-Day Saints- the list goes on and on. Is this e-mail more propaganda? No. For what very well could be once in your lifetime, you are going to get reliable information on religion. When someone dies they will go either to heaven or hell, there is NO middle ground. A person gets to heaven not by doing good deeds or living righteously, but by accepting Jesus (you know who that is.) as the Christ, or Messiah this means believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and that he was crucified and then resurrected from the dead so that those whoever believes this when they die will not go to hell but to heaven. A person goes to hell by not believing that Jesus is the Christ. Nothing can alter these facts, not good works, not time, not public opinion, not someone’s love for a departed love one, in plain language there is no way into heaven other than through Jesus the Christ. You are free to believe whatever you want and other systems of belief can make you a good person and give you inner peace, but only Jesus can get you into heaven. For more info contact any local Christian church in your area. Please DO NOT contact under any circumstances: Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints/Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Unitarian/Universalist, Christian Science or Scientologists, Unification Church or the Unity School of Christianity, the 7th Day Adventist church, The Way International, Church of the Reverend Moon, or the Gnostic Church. This is the truth, belief or disbelief rests with you.

Hmm... while the writer was going through his list, he forgot Jewish people (pre-Jesus), Catholics (Purgatory), and United Church of Christ- my denomination, which believes in our father first and foremost, but also "inosmuch as you did good to the least of these, you have done so to me". Sure buddy, you can believe in Christ all you want, but unless you do good in his name... must... not... get... into... semantics... must... not... rant...

Wonder what the hell he belongs to... if you want to get him back, you can e-mail him at NT3160@AOL.COM...

Just don't say who gave ya the e-mail.

Against my better judgement...

I am only making one true-blue resolution. I started this weblog for two reasons:
1) For a Class.
2) For the helluvit.

I got a B in the class, and have been neglecting this thing on a regular basis. Maybe because I'm afraid of my limit. Maybe because I forget about it until I am too tired to write anything of interest. Maybe because I haven't given myself the time to clean up photos to put them up here.

At any rate, I've left it alone for far too long. My resolution is to be for the rest of my life... or at least for the next ten years. I will not let this become a deadlog. I've got too many plans for this to let that happen. Plans involving The Wall, Skewed, and a few other things. T'would be a shame to make them all stay inside when the playground is so nice and sunny.

Oh, and I'll get around to posting the next chapter of "The Legend of the Salamigod" on my website.

Yeah, right. Some things just don't change.
