Fully Licensed!

That's right, I just did my Class 5 road test and I passed. Now, I can drive as many of you doorknobs around as I like, and if I get caught speeding I don't lose my license for 2 months. Finally, no more constant ph34r!

If I wasn't stressed out enough already I also had a Psych midterm today. Multiple choice I know was fine (did well on my first midterm too), but the essay, although I know I did better than the last one, I'm not too confident on. It'll be fine. I'll most likely finish with a B in this course but it doesn't mean I won't work hard to get it.

Last week I deactivated my WoW after not really playing for the last 9 months. So what do I do? I roll a new character and decide to play for my remaining week. Thankfully the time's up and I don't feel like playing too much. I'll start buying game cards now to prevent me from keeping payments active when I don't really play.

Nothing else is new, I'm not really playing anything, I haven't finished Black Lagoon yet but I'll be watching that when I feel like it, and I don't have much to do in terms of websites (except a basic HTML with a few images for a class assignment...which I'll go do after writing this).

Library Blogging

Here I am at the end of another school week, wasting time blogging in the SFU library. Psychology is pretty interesting when the lectures are bearable and the material is understandable. I just had two quizzes this week and now I have to prepare for a test next week. I also have my class 5 road test coming up in 7 days, I'll have to use this week to practice shoulder checking and actually driving with 2 hands. I get to see Indiana Jones tonight with Nessa. Been waiting for this for a long time. On the anime side of things, I've started watching Black Lagoon which was recommended to me by Nessa, it's pretty cool, I'll probably have the series done by next week. On another note, I'm kind of back on the PSP scene making some themes over at Look forward to them if you have a PSP.

Summer Semester

絶望した~!!! (Zetsubou shita~!!!)

The above means, "I'm in despair!", although...I'm actually really happy. The new semester started last week and already in my Psychology intercession course we've plowed through the first 2 chapters, had a quiz, and a term test. The course is only 6 weeks so it's kind of an express PSYCH 100...although...I'm not having any trouble keeping up it seems to be pretty good if you know the terms. The commute to Burnaby is okay, I park at Surrey and take the skytrain and bus up to the mountain, it's about 40 minutes. I joined the anime club up there which takes place Thursday afternoons, if I ever decide to hang around that late I'll go. I've also still had time to watch my animuu, the picture above shows the 3 series I finished in the last 2 weeks).

The last week I've been doing numerous things, it may be easier just to list them in chronological order:
-Up to last mission in GTAIV.
-Watched the 3 anime shown above (Minami-ke Okawari, Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Seto no Hanayome).
-Studied for PSYCH 100, took a test, got 85%.
-Went to the mall with Nathan, Afred, Nessa, and her friend Cyrus.
-Started watching Futurama Vol 3-4 on DVD I borrowed from Jacob.
-Been messing around with my PSP as usual, got it loaded with music now and a PDF reader. Also downloaded Flow, Echochrome, and Beats.
-Started Lord of the Rings again with my dad, we're up to Two Towers Part II.
-Started reading Haruhi Suzumiya light novel series (translation, volumes 1-8), reading it on my PSP via the PDF reader.
-Found a site that gets MP3s from NicoNicoDouga:

Yeah...been quite busy...and I have yet to do anything for my CMPT 165 distance ed. The first "excersise" which is basically making a list in HTML and uploading it isn't due until the 23rd...speaking of which, that's a day after Indiana Jones comes out. Fricken W00T! I've gotta call James up and see if he wants to go with Nessa and I, I'm sure he'll have plans to see it with others too.

My Room is an Otaku Museum

UPDATE (May 13, 2009) - My Room is an Otaku Museum Part 3

This week of sitting around before summer semester starts has been pretty uneventful. I was able to do everything I set out to do (pick up GTA, see Iron Man, and set up more shelves). So, I thought it was time to show my room as it is now (because I probably won't be buying anything for the rest of the month).

Here we have my first big shelf:
Evangelion, Saber/Alter, FF and FMA Play Arts, Rei Collection, Haruhi Suzumiya Figma, Altaiir, Cammy, Vegeta, Bleach. On the bottom are my miniatures.

Moving to the right of that shelf above my bed are my new shelves:
(Left) Busou Shinki, Max Factory Haruhi (Right) FF Potion, DBZ, Saber, Genshiken, Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and Haruhi Suzumiya.

On the other side of the room is my big shelf which is mostly FF Play Arts:

Here's my closet, a view from my comfortable chair (which is in the closet, yes). As you can see it has been made into an anime viewing room:

To finish things off here are some close-ups of some notable areas:
Shelves above my PC
Play Arts 1
Play Arts 2
Haruhi Figmas
Small Rei Collection
Busou and Haruhi Max Factory
Nendoroid and Others

Yes I am a big freakin' otaku. But I have a life, it's just very tiny.
