What rating is your journal?

I was just reading through my old entries and comments, and I really wanted to say something to anyone that actually does read / comment this thing.

Thanks for the thought, and thanks for commenting, it really does mean a lot to be able to see what other people are feeling as well, and that people care.


ARGH! Now I know how I became a depressed, annoyed, angst-ridden, sad, frustrated, angry teenager in high school!



Old Friends

Wow... that's what really good friends are for, those four and a half hour long conversations that you have after not talking to each other for months on end, just sitting back and catching up on the most random thoughts in the world (and getting an art fix =P). It was SO great to be able to just rant and rave to each other about old times and new. It was wonderful to be able to take a few hours out of our busy lives and talk, it's been a while, thanks Shell, lots of love! ^_^

and BTW, I loved the picture! =P (will be posted later)
Old Music

Tonic - If You Could Only See

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

That was playing on the car ride back - oooold song (1996 - 7 years ago, can you believe that?), but good one ^_^
Woo! Been a long time since I've had a late night talking with Anthony, Chamal and Phoebe. Nothing like Tony to remind you how terrible of a world this place really is! (He's one of them evil lawyer types... that's why)

Now off to sleep, only to wake up early! Whee! -_-
I've had this song stuck in my head for a long time now... and I finally really read the lyrics tonight.

Lifehouse - Somewhere In Between

I can't be losing sleep over this, no I can't.
And now I cannot stop pacing.
Give me a few hours, I'll have this all sorted out
If my mind would just stop racing.

'Cause I cannot stand still.
I can't be this unsturdy.
This cannot be happening.

This is over my head but underneath my feet,
'Cause by tomorrow morning I'll have this thing beat.
And ev'rything will be back to the way that is was.
I wish that it was just that easy.

'Cause I'm waiting for tonight,
Then waiting for tomorrow.
And I'm somewhere in between
What is real and just a dream,

What is real and just a dream,
What is real and just a dream.

Would you catch me if I fall out of what I fell in?
Don't be surprised if I collapse down at your feet again.
I don't want to run away from this.
I know that I just don't need this.

'Cause I cannot stand still.
I can't be tihs unsturdy.
This cannot be happening.

'Cause I'm waiting for tonight,
Then waiting for tomorrow.
And I'm somewhere in between

What is real and just a dream,
What is real and just a dream.

What is real and just a dream.

Somewhere In Between (commentary by Jason Wade)
Before my girlfriend and I got together, she had broken up with this guy. I'd been head-over-heels for her for years even though she was dating him. So they broke up, and I was like, "Man, if I don't make a move now, I may never get a chance." I was always friends with her but never really could get a step further. So I started taking her out to dinners and stuff. She was a little bit on the rebound, but I think she had some feelings for me. We were at that point where we weren't sure if we were dating or not, or even if she really liked me in that way. It was a very vulnerable time for me and that's when I wrote "Somewhere In Between." I poured all those feelings into the song. Then I played it for her and that was it - we were together.

"I poured all those feelings into the song."

Wow... I wish I could do that... *sigh* -_-

Nozomi, your true talent is spatial ability

This ability to visualize objects in three-dimensional space can give you a unique view of the world. You appear to understand how figures can be manipulated and take on new forms. Because of this talent, you can probably imagine new designs easily, including anything from floor plans to page layouts — and even 3D product prototypes.

People like you are usually great when it comes to putting together assemble-it-yourself furniture or other household items — whether the items arrive with instructions or not. Your spatial skills can also help you understand the finer points of how things work.

How do we know that your true talent is spatial ability? While you were taking the test, we calculated your responses to each test question, and noticed that, relative to others, you consistently answered questions that measure spatial ability correctly.
Nozomi, your destiny is to be an Advisor

Whether you know it or not, this is the role that is most in tune with who you are at your core. As an advisor, you are a quiet and reserved person who loves to help others achieve their potential through interpersonal connections. Others value you for your wisdom, integrity, and sound advice, as well as your genuine concern for people's welfare. You are a thoughtful person, trust your gut feeling about things, and have extremely acute intuition. You are somewhat of a poet in your way of thinking, finding beauty and meaning in simple things. Because of your sensitivity and soft-spoken ways, you may experience mood swings and the inability to get out of bad situation from time to time. Just be aware of that and you will get stuck in fewer unsatisfying ruts.

Grrrr! Now I remember why I so rarely come home... only home for LITERALLY like 5 minutes, and managed to get into an argument with my parents... -_- *sigh*

Anyways, on a more positive note - this Megatokyo is damn funny! ^_^ (I can see some of my friends in Largo's position... no, seriously...)

Also... this is how I feel sometimes... Ow. (not always just about video games, trust me)

Many a conversation I've had... *sigh*

And finally, Read Sandman. Because... wow... I didn't really like the American style of comics before, but this was really eye-opening. However, be forewarned, it is a VERY dark series.


Adieu for a while, Austin, I need to go back to Houston... went to go watch my cousing play tennis this morning, he's trying to get in the top 100 in the nation so he can get an easy ride to Harvard. Damn impressive player - congrats on your match today Jonathan! Anyways, I'm sure my parents and other cousin, David, will be thrilled that I fell asleep for like three and a half hours after coming back - I told them I would be in Houston early afternoon - doh. -_-


There's always time for random AIM snippets!

Nozomi81: heh heh heh - you're a redhead :-P
Boggboy: damn. if only I was a hot chick, I could just date me and be done with it. :-P
Nozomi81: ...
Nozomi81: wow
Nozomi81: now that's a quote for the books :-P
Boggboy: aw shit.
Nozomi81: O:-)
Woo! Got my roommate's hair dyed red! (very subtle though, especially in the picture... damn....) but yeah, it looks pretty cool. For anyone who knows Mike, you'll understand why I'm so excited. =P


Wow... so I survived... skydiving was UNbelievable! I was a little nervous at first, but the second we took off it all went away, and I was more excited than words can express. (Also, I convinced Mike to come too, which made me really happy) So we went up, and they opened the door on the side as the winds whizzed by. We flew for a good ten minutes, and as I got strapped in tight, Aurlie scooted up, and... *WHOOSH!* she flew out the side of the plane. So, I scooted up, strands of my hair whipping my face from the wild winds cutting by, and I kneeled out the plane, and as I looked out to the world below, all around, I was thrown out of the plane, spinning. And at that second, it was AMAZING - you could see the whole world, in EVERY direction, the world seemed so gigantic, and encompassing. And even though there was a guy strapped onto my back, I felt alone, in the sky, able to finally see the world around me, and I screamed - I screamed a scream of excitement about the world, and the experience, about the wind blowing in my face as we free fell. It was spectacularly beautiful. And after about fifteen to twenty seconds, the parachute opened, and we began floating down for about a minute and a half, able to really take a look at the world. Have you ever looked out the window of a plane, and just wanted to see the world unhindered, not in a box? That's what this was - words can't describe the way it looked up there. I strongly encourage everyone to try it at least once. Even our most nervous person (Very nervous) came back completely giddy afterwards. In the words of my tandem instructor - "It really changes your whole life perspective." I couldn't agree more.
Conversation with some of the jumpers at the skydiving place today:

(I'm wearing my Stone Temple Pilots T-shirt at the time.)
Jumper 1: Stone Temple Pilots?... So are you a pilot?
Me: huh?... oh... no, it's a band
Jumper 1: Oh... ok
Jumper 2: Dude, I can't believe you don't know who Stone Temple Pilots are... *sigh*

Anyways, it was funny at the time. ^_^
Argh!! It shouldn't take four and a half hours to set up a damn Internet Sharing Service! DAMN YOU MICROSOFT!!! .... Gonna go get some sleep before tommorow -_-


Hokay, so I'm gonna go jump out of a plane tommorrow... I'm excited, I think it's gonna be a lot of fun, but also just a wee bit terrified... o_O Anyways, we'll see how it goes ^_^
Regarding my earlier post - it's interesting that that emotion wasn't spurred at follies, our big, emotional get together, but a few days afterwards... strange that.


So here I sit in the CS lab in Painter - the stereotypical CS major, sitting at a computer, wearing taped up glasses, surrounded by other CS majors working on projects. "No, no, no the string won't work for this - we need to change the class." "Yeah, alright let's try this." It slowly fades into a low murmur of ununderstandable gibberish.

I just walked by Jester for the first time after Orientation this year - I drove up, and half expected to see fellow Orientation Advisors walking out of the building, or cluttering up the lobby. Instead I saw a cleaning woman through the glass doors, sweeping up the dusty floor of the entrance. I walked into the Jester West concourse and into Jester store, and as I left I could literally see the tables set-up for check in - people running around to organize the 1000 people to come through that week. Smiling faces separating parent from child... and it started to hit me - never again. Simply put - never again. Never would I cheer on the aisles of opening session on Day 1, or give a monologue at Diversity. Never again touch people through CI or be able to run up and scream on stage or cheer in the aisles of Traditions, belting out the Fight song. Never again would I be able to walk down to the Jester lobby to be surrounded by friends. Never again would I be able to try and help the program, or make a memory CD (the irony of that statement is rather entertaining) And never again would I have the chance to meet a group of 90 AMAZING people, and try to make as many friends as possible in the short half-year we're together. I think it's starting to hit me.

*sigh* I think I'm going to cry.



You're a Diamond. You seem like a cold and an
unreachable person outside, yet you are
beautiful inside and outside. You may be
stubborn at times. You act with grace and
elegance and you are a precious asset to all

Wow, one of the best feelings in the world is being able to talk to an old friend you thought you lost all contact with, just have an honest conversation with each other, and help each other through random decisions. Thanks, it was good to hear from you again. ^_^


I just got back from follies - the end of the culmination of the three years I have spent with orientaiton. Only after most of the people left and when I talked with Kevin A. did I start to get emotional... I actually started to tear up. Before that point, it was all sleep deprivation numbing everything. But I talked to him, and we both began to tear up. Thanks again, Kevin, you really did help to put me where I am today.


sorry, haven't posted in a long time... NO FREE TIME! Anyways, I have some neat quotes from Punch drunk love.

"I have a love in my life, it makes me stronger than anything you can imagine."
"I just wanted you to know, wherever you're going or whatever you're doing right now, I wanted you to know that I wanted to kiss you back then."
"You've gotta hope that there's someone for you, strange as you are, who can cope with the things that you do without trying too hard."

Will update about the summer later.... too much to do now -_-
