      Week 3 and I'm already getting screwed over. There are some days when I just don't feel like I've had enough rest. But there are times when I bring it upon myself for getting no sleep. Like now, I'm writing this because I really don't want to write this essay. It's hard to focus on pre-annotated text that's scribbled all over. And apparently this professor is the devil. He was hired just to be a writing tutor but then they were like why not teach since he has a lot of teaching experience. One of my suite mates told me that he assigns more essays by the last few weeks of the semester and that it gets really difficult because it's being inconsiderate of finals and other stuff to do.

      I don't understand how people can have a job and be a full time student at the same time. It's ridiculous. I look up to those people, I'm proud of them, and I'm frankly kind of jealous. I was about to have a job at the bookstore but my schedule this semester doesn't work out to give me 10+ hours a week Monday through Thursday. Ugh.

      Wish me luck in completing this essay. What do you think about social class and education? Is there socialization involved in schools that gear students toward a specific social class? Is there a problem with group identity, the social collective, and the pressure to conform? What does money have to do with anything?

    • Moderately Filtered States.

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      God damn it, I forgot to actually click "post" for yesterday's journal so now I have to rewrite this whole thing. The story is worth it, trust me.

      Fair warning though, we were poking fun at some places. There's your disclaimer. Sorry if you're offended or something.

      Sometimes I'm great at segues and averting attention from the topic. Last night I was messaging my friend and we were talking about how at some point in the night, our filters just slip away. She told me that she really wanted to kiss her friend at that moment, and in a moment of impulse I told her the same thing: "I really wanna kiss you right now." Of course she was like "saM WHAT" so I told her that I should probably tell her again when she's in a non-loopy, more filtered state.

      And then I starting listing US states (segue #1).

      Once we established that there are surely non-filtered people everywhere, I said "What state is not loopy and is filtered?"

      "ALASKA," she said. "No one hears about weird shit in Alaska definitely not loopy there."

      Meanwhile I was having my own conversation, saying, "A highly tyrannical state where there are rules about alcohol and swearing. And sex. Is that Catholicism?"

      Of course then we had a dispute over the separation of church and state (segue #2).

      THE VATICAN. IS NON LOOPY. AND HIGHLY FILTERED.

      This we agreed on.

      But then of course I realized that the Vatican state is also not a good place to tell her I want to kiss her. So then:

      WHERE IS THE MOST MODERATELY LOOPY AND MODERATELY FILTERED STATE????

      Canada? CANADA. I'LL TELL HER IN CANADA.

      And during this whole conversation I was actually just trying to waste time because I had a history quiz this morning and the textbook has so much unnecessary text that it was very difficult to focus.

      I was still looking into more ways of how to waste time.

      Solution: I talk about filtered states.

      Would a filtered state be a solution? (segue #3)

      It's a science question. But does it even make sense? She told me it makes sense but at the same time ?????

      I told her that I've been on fire with segues and she just says "IS THAT HOW U SPELL SEGWAY?? IT'S SEGUE!?" (segue #4)

      This is where all the talking gets messy.

      Both of us were on a Robotics team together, part of a program called FIRST, founded by Dean Kamen, the inventor of the Segway. So naturally:

      "THE SEGWAY IS THE ROLLY THING BY DEAN KAMEN. A SEGUE IS THE ONE IN THE SPEAKING."

      Apparently she had never even connected the word with the object so I sent her a picture and she goes "OH THAT'S WHAT YOU CALL THOSE SHITS. FUCK MAN, I JUST CALLED THEM ROLLY SECURITY THINGS."

      Also naturally, "OUR LORD AND MASTER DEAN KAMEN FOUNDER OF FIRST INVENTED THOSE SHITS"

      She's still loopy, so "THE ROLLIES OF SECURITY"

      "IS SECURITY A MODERATELY FILTERED STATE" (segue #5)

      "I GUESS SO. SOME PARTS LEGIT SOME PARTS CORRUPT"

      Perfect. "I'LL TELL YOU AT SECURITY."


      It was a long conversation full of caps lock but it was very funny at the time. I am currently also in a loopy state, rewriting an analytical essay that I'm supposed to write an opinionated essay on, but only because the PDF has shit written all over it and I can't focus so I'm outlining it. Bleh. Please let me sleep.

    • Look at the Weather Reports, Dumbass.

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      And Monday:

      Heyyyyoooooo LABOR DAY.

      No classes today, but I had some homework to do.

      But obviously, that's what friends are there to take you away from. And drag you to the beach. When mother nature has come to take you. Quite literally, really. (oooooh foreshadowing~)

      I indeed got dragged to the beach. And my newfound friend Anna decided to have us sit all the way in the front, right before the slope begins from the tide.

      What we didn't know was that there was a weather report for sneaking waves.

      Long story short, our shit ended up getting soaking wet. We had to throw away our towels, my friend's phone got fucked up, my other friend's iPod MIGHT be fucked up, my bag has sand in it, our clothes got wet, all that shit.

      We ended up going to Forever 21 to go buy new clothes. And the thing about Forever 21 is that they don't carry anything over a Large and this particular one didn't have a "plus size" section (literal shit, really) so i had to buy sweatpants that are a size too small. Fuck that, seriously.

      And when we decided to go eat, the servers were extremely slow and only went to put in our orders or charge our cards was AFTER they went to every other single fucking table outside. We had a bus to catch, people. And we told them that! But nah they had to stop at each table and ask how everything was. On the bright side they gave us smores and a little fire so we could make them ourselves. Literally the only bright side.

      It was a fun afternoon/night out, but all of us were exhausted after. We all decided to skip our usual Tuesday morning workout session and called it a night.

      Next time, we're definitely not going to be sitting that close to the shore. That shit's dangerous.

    • Ain't That a Bitch?

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      I would've posted a journal for Sunday but the RVB13 finale absolutely killed me. And Monday is another excuse. But I have enough stories to post journals for both those days AND today so I'll write all of those up after this.

      Here's Sunday:

      I'll be honest. I don't like watching short episodes and I don't like having to wait for a whole week to watch the next short episode. So when I finally got caught up with RvB, I believe S13 was just about to start airing. I kept up with the first few but then easily gave up and waited for the rest. Once I got my sponsorship, the first thing did was exercise it by watching the season 13 finale on Sunday.

      Of course, I did watch the whole season just hours before I watched the finale. Calm your butts.

      The End left me in tears. I'm one of those kinds of people who looks at the timeline and tries to see how much longer the video will be.

      I forgot about the credits.

      So when the conclusion began and my heart started to fall, I told myself it couldn't possibly be the end. There were still several minutes left.

      But I was wrong, and the end was surely coming. Once you see those flashbacks, you know some shit's about to end. And cue the tears.

      I'll tell you it was kind of awkward. I had family over and I was watching this and just crying to myself and saying "no" over and over again. I got some weird looks. Also a lot of scoffs and "whatever"s.

      And later of course, I scoured the realm of tumblr. I found a picture of Carolina holding AI Church in her hands, captioned "Don't say goodbye. I hate goodbyes." LIKE SERIOUSLY WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT. You don't just take the two killers of the RvB fandom and put them toGETHER. My reaction to it was if RVB10 was like a stab to the heart, then RVB13 was like someone gripped the knife, twisted it, and pulled it out.

      Needless to say, it fucked me up.

      But thank you. Thank you, RT for making this ridiculously beautiful show and for pouring your hearts and souls into it. Thank you for taking us on this amazing journey. Not just the story of the characters, but the journey through which technology advanced and you were able to tell your story through more advanced, more beautiful, methods. Knowing that this was your base, this show was your foundation to your success, serves as an inspiration to many animators, actors, and entertainers. It's possible to be successful. You just need to know your stuff and maybe make some dumb decisions. But you'll get there.

    • Haircuts and German Barbecues.

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      I swear I was gonna post yesterday. But I fell asleep again.

      I got a haircut! My hair now barely touches my shoulders, but pretty much looks the same as in my picture. Pre-haircut, however, I definitely didn't have the same hair. It's so nice and light now! My shower time has been cut in half. <3

      Afterwards, I went with my aunt and cousin to another cousin's house in Irvine and we had a little goodbye barbecue. Good German food, man. Y'all got the good stuff.

      My back hurts. Someone help?

    • Anyone Still Your Parents' Child?

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      Day Twenty-Two was supposed to be for yesterday and today but I have another thing to say before the day ends (and to catch up with my journal days).

      Are you still your parents' child?

      And by that I mean I can't drive. So my parents pick me up from campus to take me home for the weekend. Today I spent a few hours in my friend's room. Also service is really shitty up here so I didn't know until 8:30 that my parents got here at 5:45. They left.

      What made me sad was that since he service was shitty, I got all the texts from 6-8:30 in one burst. It went from "we're here!" to "where are you? :(" to "we are leaving in 5 min if you're not here."

      And in that moment my heart broke. I hate making my parents wait for me for such a long time. And all the past times they've left me or almost left me, my heart plummets into my stomach and I just feel so bad.

      And now, I have to sleep here for the night, miss a haircut, miss a goodbye party. I might as well stay here, right?

      Excuse me while I cry like the baby I am.

    • More Things and New Things.

      samm407 Mega Queen

      I missed English class yesterday. I took a nap and my alarm didn't go off. My fault though, because I didn't pay attention to whether it was a.m. or p.m.

      Next week I have three essays due. Whoop. College life has kicked into gear.

      Something different is on here! I'm now a sponsor! Whoooo!!!!!

      I'll be going home this weekend, for a haircut and a goodbye barbecue for my cousin. He got his visa approved so he's going to be studying in England for a semester! I'm excited for him.

    • Things Are Looking Up...Kinda.

      3 years ago

      samm407 Mega Queen

      Today is so much better than yesterday and I'm proud. But first, the shitty things:

      I went to sleep about 3 hours earlier than usual, but I woke up several times throughout the night. I wasn't even uncomfortable! The room temperature was so comfortable that I turned off the fan. Yet I still woke up. I was so unrested this morning that I forewent taking a thorough shower in favor of sleeping for another hour. See I made a mistake when setting a schedule with my suitemates: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I have dibs over the bathroom from 7-7:30. From 7:30-8, one of my suitemates has the bathroom since she has a class at 8. So I slept till 8 today and was late for my usual breakfast date with one of my best friends.

      Remember on Day Eleven I was worried about how much liquid intake I'll get on campus? Yeah that's definitely been taken care of. I 1) have water bottles in my room and in my fridge, 2) I spend too much time in the cafe so I get water all the fucking time, and 3) there is Gold Peak Green Sweet Tea and I have at least 2 cups every day. Downside of that is that now, for every drink I have to go to the bathroom. So let's just say 10+ bathroom breaks per day. It's highly inconvenient.


      And now for the good shit:

      I'm so psyched because today's film class just gave me a shitton of movies to watch and I'm really excited.

      Also, remember the dream girl from Day Sixteen? I saw her in the cafe today and she ate lunch with me and I forced RT down her throat. She took it pretty well, especially since I mainly showed her Slow Mo Guys and RWBY.

      Something I forgot to say on Monday was that I'm officially a double major! Psychology and Film & Media.

      I got hired to work at the campus bookstore! $9 an hour. Yay California minimum wage! I don't have my work schedule yet but thank god I made my class schedule with several hour breaks during the store's busier times. Also, if I hadn't been a Store Guardian this year, I definitely wouldn't have gotten the job. So THANK YOU. Proof to my parents that my hobbies and interests can actually get me money.

      I decided to cross myself of the list for an extra credit opportunity for history. And with that I feel like a huge load has been taken off my shoulders because Although it's merely a 10-15 minute presentation, I honestly don't think I want to do extra work right now. Especially for history. I'm sorry to history lovers but I don't particularly enjoy world history. Art and film history, sure. But other than that, nah.

      Uhhhh I don't remember any other good things that happened today so I'll just leave it at this long ass post.

      Also P.S. wifi is shitty as fuck.
