*taps nervously*

Hello, I'm back. I miss everyone.

About the disappearance, I was almost hospitalized last year after my weight dropped to 85 pounds. I was really, really stupid. I'm well on the way to recovery now, though. :) Also, it looks like I'll be coming to America in September! I got into Princeton and Stanford and was waitlisted for Harvard *sobs* but since Princeton is giving me financial aid it looks like it'll be Princeton.

I don't think I'll be updating this journal any more but if for some reason you were interested, you could check out my personal journal here. Please add me anyway, because I still want to read your journals. :D

I don't like this.

Quick general update:

'bri, thank you for the generous (and undeserved) rec. *blush* I cringe when I read it (the story) now, but it's nice that you enjoyed it. I'm glad you're updating more these days. :D

My SAT prep is non-existent. I have taken, what, 3 practice tests so far? I haven't scored below 780 on any of the sections, though this isn't exactly very good. Those of you who have taken the SAT I: I realise the new SAT is different, but it's not really that different. Are the Princeton Review books good for prep? What is considered a good SAT score? (Nobody does the SAT here at all.) And do practice tests reflect real scores?

music: school has eaten me alive

Something I wrote a long time ago, and never posted nor bothered doing anything with after that. I think it was mostly during camp, actually. I don't think it will ever be finished.

Retribution: part one. Luke/David, PG-13Collapse )

rambling.

I like playing with the layouts people make for the pretty graphics. However, I am usually much too lazy to customize them. Or even write anything in the little "About Me" sections in the code. Therefore, for quite a long while, my journal had a slightly bizarre aspect. I couldn't be arsed to get online to fix it, though.

This one was just so annoyingly cute, I couldn't resist. AND it was fully lj-supported. That meant no irritating About Me - Music - Friends boxes to fill in. I was awfully tempted by a Little Twin Stars graphic (when I was a child, I had a passion bordering on unholy for a bunch of little twin stars plastic forks that my grandmother kept in a box) but I thought it might induce vomiting in certain individuals.

Exams I have to take:
SAT I (October)
BMAT - Bio-Medical Admissions Test (November)
SAT II Chemistry, Physics, Maths I and II (November)
AS Levels (January)

Time to die.
Further Mathematics kills.

Despite all my homework I couldn't wait to watch Lords of Dogtown after seeing the trailer. It was incredibly ridiculous in a way, and not all that riveting, but it's nice, I suppose, to be able to sit in a theatre and watch pretty young actors defy gravity. I really liked Jon Robinson, and Stacy Peralta is my favourite Z-Boy. I think I may have lost my attention span (my mother thinks it's due to poor nutrition) because I can't even sit through a normal movie without a)doing homework at the same time or b)watching two other movies on different channels/vhs/dvds.

I once tried to learn how to skateboard. I think I was eleven. It was a dismal failure.

I also watched King Arthur for the first time, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I didn't like the way they dealt with Arthurian legend, because I happen to be fanatical about Arthurian legend, but Ioan Gryffydd was pretty. (I hate Keira Knightley.) Sadly, I really didn't like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, either - the colours annoyed me, the children annoyed me (except Veruca Salt, whom I adore) and I hated the dentist-father backstory.

Has anyone read LM Montgomery's The Blue Castle? Everyone who's read it raves about it, but I found it really boring the first and only time I read it. I loved most of her other books as a child - The Story Girl/The Golden Road, the Emily series, Jane of Lantern Hill, etc., although I was never really into Anne. I'm rereading it now, though, and I have been known to radically change my mind upon second reads.

Er, it is me, alohi, also known as carne_vale, also known as youneverknow, etc.

*creeps up to 'bri* just read the birthday wishes. Thank you muchly for remembering and caring. :)) I actually wrote you a whole longhand letter and put it in a stamped envelope and enclosed shells from my trip to Langkawi. But I didn't have the nerve to send it. I missed you evereverever so much and while I do not understand the rp talk and the naruto in your recent entries, I still want you to friend me back. please?

I have been away for a long time, and am in the middle of Traumatic College Life and university applications to Cambridge. Trust me, of course, to pick this particular time to start being obsessive about the internet again. Really, I've missed reading all your entries, though.

Reposted this for 'bri because of her last post (in case you are still interested in reading it).

barney, sorry.Collapse )
