General life crap


Can you believe it?! I’m updating after…a really long time!
There really isn’t much to say, or maybe there is and I just don’t feel like typing it all up.

I received and read Jan’s first novel (awww!) and yes, Jan, I did enjoy it. She all ready knows this, but for those who don’t, my favorite characters are Chiyo and Ariba (hope I spelled that right!). I like Noah well enough, but he’s not my fave or anything. But then it’s very rare for main characters to make it on my favorites list.

The more I think about it, the more it seems I will be buying vBulletin instead of upgradting to phpBB 3, assuming that project ever sees the light of day. I never thought this day would come! But I am seriously thinking about, and how to go about testing a conversion. I have a feeling the members will like it more; aside from Jan and Niklas and their “open-source!” club. 😉 I even thought of making Jan create a vBulletin skin for the forum, but that’s because I’m lazy. I hear it’s easy to do, so it’s not like she can complain! I’d make Kate do it, but she no love us anymore. 🙁

My OFB ships tomorrow!!!! w00t! Oh, and I do get spring break off so that means lots of sleep and lots of Sims. And maybe even lots of homework to catch up on. poo on that one.

I am not dead

Everyone’s acting like I pulled a Kaitlin or something! *shakes head*

My French teacher is the cute one from France. aww! I’m going to try and get an A in the class…which won’t be easy. But this is the last French class I have to take, so I might as well try! I have one more class today at 3:30 and it lasts an hour and 15 minutes. I hope we get out early, being the first day and all. I can’t even remember what it’s about. Besides Japan, something Japanese. Anyway.

I’ll talk about my break some other time when I feel like it. For some reason I am awfully tired. I have no idea why.

I start work tomorrow, which I am not looking forward to. I am, however, looking forward to getting paid next week. I really need to get paid. I spent way too much money in December.


So. After buring up 3 GB of bandwidth in three days, the stupid Googlebot finally downloaded the robots.txt file that told it to not do that! I cannot express how happy I am about this. If things had continued, I would have had to shut down the forum for awhile, and I didn’t want to do that. 🙁

In other news, I didn’t fall asleep until 6 AM, woke up a few hours later, and it took a couple more hours for me to realize why no one was going to work: It’s Saturday. I’m also so hungry it hurts, but that’s minor. Whitney and I got into a spat that lasted so long I actually forgot what we were arguing about. 😯 To add to that, I wasn’t even mad, so I was confused why I was arguing in the first place. We’re fine now, no worries, I just think we should avoid trying the serious talks at 4 AM.

Oh, back to bandwidth! I’m just so happy about that. Now I can work on those new layouts I’ve been planning without fear of teh Googlebot killing me. I’ve also almost decided to just do the MW revap, even if I have no idea when phpBB is going to release Olympus. I’m tried of the dark green look and upside down Moiraine. I don’t even know why I made her upside down! Anyway, I’m going to save all that work for when I get some artwork from my super nice art friends, i.e. beg.


After feeling rather down and out for the past couple of days, I’m feeling pretty darn happy. Yes…happy. I’m not sure why, to be honest, but this afternoon I realized I felt elated; the things that bugged me just yesterday didn’t seem that big of a deal. Instead of being stressed out about school I’m actually looking forward to it. I don’t know, I just have a good feeling about this year. Although, it’s possible I’m getting my hopes up.

I don’t really have much to say as of right now, but I’ll try and update once I’ve spoken to my new roomie. Whoever she is.

Happy, Payal? 😉
