Monday, Sept. 29

Wow. I really haven't been keeping up, have I? *Smacks* I need to keep this up better than I am doing now.

So pretty much, I found a new Christian forum that I've joined onto. It's absolutely gigantic, and it has every topic possibly imaginable. I really like it so far, and it seems very friendly. I hope to meet some more Christians and talk with them sometimes. I still haven't gotten the katana yet, either. Our water heater hasn't been fixed, but we still have cold water, so we're forced to go heat water up on the stove if we want to take a warm bath. I have many tests this week (at least one per day starting Wednesday), and I even had a pop quiz today in Biology. Today, I get picked up early so that I can get my braces checked out. They were supposed to be removed over half a year ago, but they said that there's something that they've overlooked, so they're trying to fix that now. Which means we're probably looking at another year or more for this to be fixed. That would make a total of five and a half years with braces... oh well. At least my teeth will be in good shape by the time I'm a Senior in college! ^_'

Wednesday, Sept. 25

I haven't posted in two days... my bad! I've had tons of homework, and been pretty busy with other things. Also, just to note, we now have no running water in our home. Our water heater has broken, which means that we would have no hot water as it is, but the hot water heater is also leaking. So, as a result, my grandfather had to go turn the water that was going into the house off so that it wouldn't leak and cause water damage and skyrocketing water bills. There are now pots and ice chests speckling the house, filled with water. The problem is, the water heater in this house is so old, they don't even make water heaters like it anymore. Not even close. So, we're not sure when (or if) we will get hot, running water back, but we will just have to pray for it. I also still have not gotten the katana.

Monday, Sept. 22

Well, over the weekend, I was busy with many things, including monster optional assignments to try and bring up my grades in two subjects. So... yeah. That's about it. I'm also still waiting for my katana.

Today happens to be the First Day of Fall/Autumn, which I also recognize as Senna's Day. (She was the main character in the first Bleach movie.) She's my fourth favorite character out of all of Bleach. Her Zanpakuto is Mirokumaru, whose power is of the wind element, but there's a twist- the wind she summons is adorned with hundreds of fall leaves swirling around everywhere. She is free-spirited, and her favorite color is red. This speaks volumes to me about how she pretty much represents the entire season of fall, therefore, I chose this day as a special remembrance day for her. May her memories in the minds of Bleach fans never fade.~

Friday, Sept. 19

Well... yesterday marked the last day for 3 whole weeks that I will be able to watch Bleach. It's taking a break because of the new time slot that it has been assigned to (it will now air every Tuesday in Japan instead of Wednesday, so that means I will watch Bleach every Wednesday now), so that means I will probably be reading Zombie Powder, and re-reading some events in the Bleach manga while it's gone.

Well, Mimi wasn't too pleased last night when my mom told her my grade in Biology. She fussed at me three different times, and threatened that I'm really in trouble if I don't bring my grades up... so I will now also have to do some extra optional assignments in Biology and English to bring up my grades. That cuts even more time out from my usual activities, and yet again, miraculously fits the time slot that Bleach is not aired. Isn't the Lord good? And even more, I just remembered that my last period is not a class, so that means I might be able to get my appointment for the orthodontist back today, if my time can be changed to the latest time possible. Again, the Lord is good.

Wednesday, Sept. 17

Well, another day. Nothing interesting has been happening... other than the obvious infinite homework I've been getting... and also my la montha... but nothing much else to speak of. It's just another day that God's given me!

Happy Mexican Independence Day!

So basically... both Mrytu and olomonkey joined on the same place I joined on to talk.... it was a very great day today. I had a Geometry test today, and I don't know how good I did on it... And at my last period, I got TONS of homework, which I need to get to right now. I thought I could've made it through a day without homework, but I should have known that was impossible... Oh well. This pretty much concludes one of my shortest posts in a while... Oh yeah, and my katana that my mom ordered me should be coming in this week, other than that, everything's normal again.

Monday, Sept. 15

Wow. School turned out to be closed Friday, again because of the hurricane. I used that time Friday to finish my rough draft of my essay for English, so that I can be ahead and do a smaller amount of homework to ease my burden. I also found a new promo video for the new Bleach movie- Fade to Black- on the official Japanese website. And, not only that, but with the help of jTango I even subbed it (in a Word document) by myself! If you're wondering what jTango is, it's a Japanese translating website where you just type in any Japanese or English word, and it translates it for you! Here's the website: http://www.glpwd.com/jtango-web/search.action
I've tried to download it from the stream so that I can add subs to the actual video, and I never got more than just the visual part of it with no sound, but at school today, I managed to download it perfectly! :) I will sub it once I figure out how to.... So yeah... not very much other than that going on now. I also have to work on getting some service hours really soon...

Thursday, Sept. 11

Wow. The hurricane prevented me from posting at all for the past couple of weeks. Our house had many trees down, and we had no electricity until recently. It was very hard living without electricity, as we had to learn to synchronize with the sun's schedule instead of our own, and we had to eat just what we had instead of what we wanted. There were many helicopters and ambulances that could be heard going up and down nearby streets. I had many things to do once I got electricity back, including letting my family know if we had any damage. That is why I haven't posted in such a long time- I will now try and keep up my normal schedule of posting.

Of course, since the break, we had no school for a long time. Which means that, since we missed all of those days, we have homework. And lots of it. I managed to get to watch Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion while we had no school after the storm, and I didn't like it at first. I analyzed and thought about it more, though, and grew to like it more than I first thought. My friend Mrytu has also watched it and likes it as well. I plan on watching it again once I have more time so that I can grow to the feel of the movie. Also, today happens to be the normal day that I watch Bleach each week, and the storm hasn't changed that. ^^ 187 is today. So far, everything seems to be coming back to normal now! I hope that the next hurricane that's forming in the Gulf is nowhere near the strength that this one was.
