Yeah, I know this is old. But I think it applies more to me now, since I'm actually in college, and looking back is more meaningful that way.

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day three months ago, six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

Three months ago… I was trying to get back on a regular sleep cycle after being nocturnal for so long. So stayed up the whole night and the whole day. I was also swearing to finish and post the next bit of Our Resistance, which I did manage to do, surprisingly enough. Random, but somewhat cool, quizzes. And I mentioned going to my first garage band concert and having [livejournal.com profile] our_resistance pimped for the first time. That was a big deal for me. Of course, that was the first and last time, but hey, I’m happy. The very fact that people like it at all just blows me away. And my current music was “The Red” by Chevelle, which deserves mentioning in its own right, because it’s just that awesome of a song.

Six months ago… Total angsty post, apologizing for being grumpy and cynical at the time. I was crazy-busy and under a ton of stress, and Ms. Rehm had made a point to “chat” with me after class, even though I hadn't done anything to her. She thought my bad mood was a personal attack on herself and her teaching methods. It all worked out fine, but it really wasn’t a good day. But Kari, Richard, and Christa posted words of encouragement, which helped. Thanks, guys; you’re the best.

Nine months ago… The only entry this month was the one about my second surprise birthday party within one week. After all these years of no parties, this really knocked my socks off. My mom and all of you guys went all out for me, and I couldn’t have been more surprised…It was crazy. I found out that day that I was going to Ultra, which really made it special. It was just a relaxed, fun party with all of my friends, and it’s one of those nights I’ll never forget. (And since we had watched Anchor Man, I had to quote it at least once in there…)

A year ago… I was insanely busy. It’s funny to think that all those college interviews were absolutely pointless in the end. I gave a brief commentary on each day of Spirit Week, and then Homecoming itself. Good times…I miss it, actually. Things are a bit different over here. The Class of ’05 had such wacky, humorous unity; we had a blast with being Seniors, and very few people were afraid of “making fools of themselves” or “messing up their hair”. No doubt about it….West Shore’s ’05 was special, in about every way you can be special. Jesse was still with us, and I tell you what, there is nothing more fascinating than trying to sit down and eat like a civilized human being when Jesse’s around. Dinner becomes a three-course circus. I miss that. I miss all the looney [de]Tox guys; they’re the brothers I never had, in more ways than one. Oh, and walking out of the dance with two maracas down my dress is a thrill I’ll probably never have again.

Two years ago…I’ve only had a LiveJournal for about a year and a half, now. I was more or less the last person to get one, and both Laura and Molly had been hounding me about it for months beforehand. I miss walking leisurely to class and being told to “stop being a muffin”...

I figured that this is inevitable, so I might as well just have a go.

So...yeah. It took me a while to post this, but it only says in the rules that I have to post it in my journal. It never specifies when, so I'm totally in the clear.

At least I can say that I wasn't the only one who cheated. Posting a comment but not posting the meme in their own journal, "forgetting" to reply to those that commented on their journal...Some of us really cheated on this one.

List ten fictional characters you would have sex with, then tag five friends.

-Commodore James Norrington- Pirates of the Caribbean (He's normally ignored when it comes to these kinds of things, but I respect him, and he's so deliciously snarky.)
-Joscelin Verreuil- Kushiel's Dart
-Pilot-Major John Blackthorne- Shogun
-Mirai Trunks- DBZ
-Inuyasha- Inuyasha
-Sesshomaru- Inuyasha (Yes, both Inuyasha and Sesshomaru. And yes, I know how kinky that is...)
-Trowa Barton- Gundam Wing (There's just something about him that's so quietly beautiful. He doesn't speak much, but when he does it's always something worth hearing.)
-Kenshin Himura- Rurouni Kenshin
-Gabriel Van Helsing- Van Helsing (I have a soft spot in my heart for Hugh Jackman.)
-Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny- Phantom of the Opera (What can I say? He's adorable.)

I started adding images for the anime characters because (unlike movie characters) not everyone would know who they are. But that was just taking too long. I'll come back and finish after dinner.

Actually, this feels very odd for me. If I weren't single, I don't think I could do this at all. But that's just me.

From [livejournal.com profile] severepsychosis

1) You've been given a TV show! What is it about, who does it star, and why should we care?
Hmm, my own television show. I suppose that it would be a reality TV show/documentary called "Backstage". It would basically be a camera going around backstage of plays, ballet performances, musicals. Maybe even Broadway shows. I hesitate to call it a "reality TV show", because there would be no trumped up drama, purely for the sake of ratings. It would star all of the incredible performers that we admire and look up to. As for why anyone should care, I would say because there is so much that goes on backstage that the audience never sees. All of the struggle, and problems, and camaraderie that people develop with each show. It's incredible and compelling. At least, it is in my opinion.

2) If you could end ONE world crisis what would it be?
I would really like to work on curing cancer and genetic diseases, but those aren't really in the "world crisis" category. So I'll have to say the environmental crisis in general. Deforestation, extinction, and pollution all fall neatly into that broad category. The problem is, one person could never do all that. But I wish that I could. That's got to count for something.

3) If you could get the permits, what exotic animal would you have for a pet and why?
I would have to say a cheetah, because they've always been my favorite animal. Ever since I was a little girl, I've admired their power, speed, and grace. The only problem is that a wild animal is a wild animal, and you can never domesticate it. So I would need a whole lot of land for it to live on. But wild or not, I would love it just the same.

4) If you could become Supreme Ruler of the Universe, who would be your serfs and slaves?
If I were Supreme Ruler of the Universe, I would be an equal opportunity Supreme Ruler of the Universe. None of that "Boys will be my slaves; Girl Power!" nonsense. Everyone will have to take a turn as a slave or serf. My advisers would be less inclined to suggest extreme labor if they've felt what it's like before. And as for my personal slaves? Well, that job would be both easier and more demanding. They would have to be in excellent physical condition...

5) If you could erase one memory from your head, what would it be?
Well, I would have to say that this is a tough one. I make a fool of myself on a regular basis, really. But there is one memory that I could really do without. When I was a little kid, my best friend was a boy named Leigh. He lived down the street, and we were practically inseparable. His older brother didn't particularly like me, and he could get a bit cranky. One day, I was leaving to go home for dinner. Leigh and his family were about to have dinner too, but I was about halfway back to my house when I remembered something that I really needed to tell Leigh. So I ran back to his house. Well, his brother was pretty nasty and yelled at me for coming back. The whole family turned to stare at me, and at that moment I completely forgot what I was going to say. So I just muttered "Never mind..." and scurried back home. I was one very traumatized seven-year-old for a few days. It completely mortified me, but young kids bounce back pretty quick. Still, it's something that I'd rather forget.

This is fun, so I decided to give it a try:

1. Choose ten of your all time favorite books.
2. Take the first sentence of the first chapter and make a list in your journal.
3. Don't reveal the author or the title of the book.
4. Now everyone try and guess.

1. The gale tore at him and he felt its bit deep within and he knew that if they did not make landfall in three days they would all be dead.

2. "Blessed-look out!"

3. Northwest of the great capital of Edo, isolated among marches an rice paddies, the Yoshiwara pleasure quarter adorned the winter night like a flashy jewel.

4. I'm the Vampire Lestat.

5. It was a dull autumn day and Jill Pole was crying behind the gym.

6. "Your grandfather," said Vanyel's brawny, fifteen-year-old cousin Radevel, "was crazy."

7. I wanted to find my own way, so this morning I persuaded my father to let me travel alone from his apartment in Kobe to my grandfather's beach house in Tarumi.

8. I am old now and have not much to fear from the anger of gods.

9. Once there was a tree...and she loved a little boy.

10. Silver stamped restively as another horse on the picket line shifted and blundered into his hindquarters.


I wish I could put more books up there...

Well, you guys know how I am about books.

Oh, and by the way, Prom!! ^.^
