Auto response from Sakaki: Yeah.
Yes, I have had my away message on a lot recently ... I just haven't felt like talking to some or all people on my buddylist for whatever reason(s), but I wished to be online to do something or another ... I'm kind of missing my university network where I did not have to log on in order to get on. I know I tended to use away messages judiciously at school, but ... just, not right now. I don't want to talk on AIM. I don't know why.
I'm bored sh!tless, if you'll excuse the phrase. I really want to go back to school and have art classes again, and have lunch with Erik, and dinner with Sarah and the group. I hate sitting in this house every day.
Updating Hammerspace with actual content has ceased to be a priority or a burden for me, and I feel much better for it. I'll get around to it if and when I get around to it, I'm not obligated to anyone other than myself to update my own site ... there's much less pressure on me from myself now, as far as that goes. This is good news, as my upcoming school year is looking to be a busy one.
As SweetPeach said, "don't put so much effort into your online world." Is she still in Germany? I feel terrible, she's always been so supportive of me, but the last few times I talked with her I couldn't think of anything to say.
I've lost one entire almost brand-new bottle of brown paint. -_- I don't know how or where, I just ... can't find it ...
My new roommate called me last week, and wound up having to leave before we had dicussed much (a phonecall for her father). She said that she would call me back, but she hasn't (I've called her twice, and left a message once with an answering machine, once with a family member). I would like to give her the benefit of the doubt and say "oh gee, she forgot," but it gets more difficult with each passing day ... I keep on wondering if she's decided whether she likes me or not, and if she has decided either way, I'm not a happy camper. She hasn't met me in real life yet!
I'm kind of getting sick of my mother constantly saying things like, "you'll probably have to keep your anime to your personal times alone," "can you type any quieter?," "if you keep on playing that game you'll drive your roommate crazy," etc. I don't want to have to give up or restrict the use of things that I enjoy. -_- Selfish, yes. But I'm tired of giving in on the roommate situation ... last time I did, I felt like I was sacrificing myself, my pride, and my values just to make others (who did not deserve it) happy, not myself.
Selfish, selfish, selfish. So what else is new?
According to this, the Kapra Band is dropped by a Verit. What the hell is a Verit?
Shoten + Nishi -
[SPOILER] I believe that Kaoru's Megumi-influenced choice to follow Kenshin to Kyoto and see him once more wound up having a vital impact on Kenshin, and without it, there might not have been a "victory" over Shishio - over and over, in times of difficulty or near death, we see Kenshin's mind turn back to returning with Kaoru and the others to Tokyo, and frequently he thinks of Kaoru saying that they'll return to Tokyo. These images and thoughts, seemingly catalyst-like at times, provide him with a reason, or a strength, to continue on living, on fighting - because "there are people waiting for my return." Do you agree? [/SPOILER]
