News from January 2004
*glowers* Apparently, what I found yesterday wasn't the only thing wrong with this page. Waaaaaay down at the bottom, I'm missing a lot of crap, not to mention the music. Arg. I should have known something was wrong when the file size of index dropped by 40k. Well, I should be up late again tonight so I'll do some work then, once I archive all of this. Yep, last day of January. At 12:01 or so, I'll prolly post February's first entry. Maybe a rant about St. Valentine's Day. *shudder* I hate this holiday, bec-. Oops, not yet. Okay, that's all for now, guys! Be sure to visit the message boards. Cheers!
There is a new section up top. It links to a pa ge about me; my biography section, if you will. It will be getting more content as time goes on, but right now I am too lazy. It's only 11 pm and I'm already tired, for cryin' out loud! Also, check out our new message board. This one is permanent. :D I hope my loyal readers join. *puppy dog eyes* All right, this is Amy, signing off. Catch y'all on the flip side. (Whatever that means.....)
So, I brought up the page to see if the new image worked. I was scrolling down and I noticed that all of the entries from the 24th down are bolded and scrolling across. x_x Sorry about that. One missing character and the whole thing screws up. Yeesh! The whole front page needs worked over. Well, when I archive the blog at the end of the month, I'll go over the rest of this page as well.
Well, yesterday's boredom applies. If anyone knows of any interesting books, websites, etc., please! Let me know!
Aherm. So, today was career day and play practice. I am seriously unable to write. Besides the fact that there is nothing to write about, American Idol is playing in the background. That about sums it up. Bleh. (I am seriously sorry for the lack of content lately. Ah, well.)
x_x Bored out of my mind. There are no good stories on fictionpress, no interesting topics on runevillage, I've read all of the comics on squidi, and I can't access this one webcomic, Angel Moxie. X_X Blah. My only hope is that Ma will take me to the library. *faints*
Lonliness dominates you. You can hide it well, but
its there, and your friends can see it. You
constantly feel alone, and need to do things to
fill your time. Your afraid to tell people
this, but sooner or later it gets out in a bad
way, and you think you screwed up everything.
And when you are in love is when you are sad
the most. (Please Vote)
What Emotion Dominates you?

Lookit me! I'm angsty! Well, I think.... Not according to this one, though. *points below*
You represent... loneliness.
Always alone and always sad about it... unlike
angst, you don't have to look for a reason to
be miserable. You want to be in the company of
people but aren't sure how to act when you're
with them. Sometimes you have to make an
effort. You can't always wait for others to
come to you.
What feeling do you represent?

Oh, well! :D Whatever. So, we didn't have skewl today! LOL! ......er, never mind. I don't really have much too say. Um, okay, BYE!
I am Kung Fu Master.|
I like to be in control of myself. I dislike crowds, especially crowds containing people trying to kill me. Even though I always win, I prefer to avoid fights if possible. What Video Game Character Are You?

I'm very proper, often politically correct, precise and dapper. I generally look down on the masses, but I usually try not to let it show. What Sort of Hat Are You?
It is Sunday! The Simpsons are on today - unless football interrupts. Grrr...... I don't like football at all. I'd rather play dodgeball or hockey. I am going to stick to the plan I outlined on Friday and I'll be reporting on its success over the course of the week. See ya!
So, I'm reading one of those fluffy love stories that I like to read. Do you know how hard it is to read a touching love story when Frankie Muniz is whining in the background? 3 televisions and they have to watch on the one right by the computer. -_- Ah, well. If we have a school delay tomorrow, I am going down here while the others sleep and I am gonna read fiction and belt out oldies like there is no tomorrow!
Good mornin' ev'ryone! I am in a gooooood mood today. I found yet another cool webcomic. I'm gonna post that in the links section. Now, I figured out what Disney can do so that their animated movies aren't so truly sucky. First off, there needs to be more original ideas. Second, there should be more musical ones with good songs. *shudders, thinking of some Disney films* Also, Disney should acquire the licenses to some good stuff. I am thinking Harry Potter, Roald Dahl's works, assorted fantasy novels, some musicals like the Music Man or Fiddler on the Roof, etc. ^_^ I'm such a genius.
Well, I am having an angsty day. My social life is, as always, not good. I have my options narrowed down to three:
1.) Take a vow of silence
2.) Find some new friends
3.) Become a social butterfly~~~The links shown below are also listed here.~~~
After much deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that a mixture of the three would work best. I know a group of girls that I'd like to become better friends with, so I'll mainly hang out with them. I can also lunch with other sophomores, too. I can still hang out with my old friends, but...... *makes a muddled shrugging gesture.
I don't have any news to report today. However, if anyone can make chibi sprites that I can use as avatars and whatnot, please email me. Thanks!!
Hallo, all. Today I have a doctor's appointment for my knee. :( I'm scared. Since my exercises haven't been working, I might need physical therapy or surgery. What have I done to deserve this?! No, seriously, what have I done? I'm an utter couch potato; there is no way I could have injured my knee. *thinks back to time she tripped on the way to the fridge* Well, almost no way. Anyhoo, I hope y'all tried the links I posted yesterday. Both of them are fun and easy games. My username on 'em is, of course, Dracobolt.
Well, I have to see a specialist person for my knee. *glowers* Grrr....... Now, on to other matters. After lunch today, I was handed a flier. Looking at it, I saw an invitation to J.'s birthday party. J. is a boy I used to like. Now, D. is the man of the moment. Needless to say, I am more than a little pensive about this oppurtunity. If I can convince some friends to accompany me, I think I will go. D. will probably be there. :D

I just read cool book, Path of Fate. Check out its review in the newest section of the site, Reviews!
I bought a Pepsi to drink with my lunch. My friend's reactions were quite comical. A. groaned when I showed it to her, K. gave me this look of horror, and C. said, "Not again!" Well, anyway, that Pepsi helped during play practice. We spent around an hour learning to clap a pattern about 10 measures long. x_x Ar... Well, whatever. I've an easy day tomorrow, excpet for a doctor's appointment. I've got to see what can be done for my knee. I swear, it has been about 4 months! I'll probably need physically therapy, although they might recommend surgery. *shudders* Okay, that's it for today. I gotta do my chemistry homework. :( See y'all!

C. had her 16th birthday party last night. It was some of the most fun I have had since gradeschool. The old Amy was back with a vengeance. Yeah, we danced some and played Twister and talked a lot and I had 3 cans of Pepsi and they had to physically restrain me from a fourth. At 12:30, I say, "Okay, I can have another Pepsi now!" I had promised not to drink any more until then. "Says who?" asks K. "Well, that's what I said," I say, going over to the cooler. K. has been sitting on it and now she calls over L. to join her. I start shouldering K. off and I manage to get her off. L. holds her ground and once M. joined in, I gave up and just grabbed a warm Pepsi from the basement. >:)
Well, I must say, I do love the night. 4:45 on Saturday morning now. I've stayed up the night reading fiction and listening to the score from Once Upon A Mattress. Yeesh. At least I'll be off book by Monday. So, how is everyone doing? I just realized I've never asked how you all were. Quite rude of me. At least I can rectify my mistake now. Ar, I am rambling. Pay me no heed. And now, I leave you. As always, here's a quiz.

Well, it's nothing we didn't already know, eh? The one I scored the highest on was 'Avoidant'. According to that page:
"Avoidant personality disorder is characterized by extreme social anxiety. People with this disorder often feel inadequate, avoid social situations, and seek out jobs with little contact with others. They are fearful of being rejected and worry about embarassing themselves in front of others. They exaggerate the potential difficulties of new situations to rationalize avoiding them. Often, they will create fantasy worlds to substitute for the real one. Unlike schizoid personality disorder, avoidant people yearn for social relations yet feel they are unable to obtain them. They are frequently depressed and have low self-confidence."
Hmph. I am not depressed and I do not have (very) low self confidence. If anything, I can be quite arrogant. o_0 Ha ha ha....
Hello, everyone! I had an absolutely faaaabulous day! :) First off, we took our last two midterms and they were cake. Today I had cartooning and only two regular classes. w00t! It was quite fun. Tomorrow I have practice for the musical. *groan* It's dancing, too, and since I'm in the ensemble, I'll probably stand around for a good 80% of the time. Ah, well, at least I can work on my story while I'm waiting. Speaking of which, I am going to be posting my original fiction on this site, not just on fictionpress. You lucky readers will be the first to read SuperDude v2. Yeah, I know, it is a bit of a stupid name for a story but meh. Expect to see it quite soon once I get copyright stuff sorted out. Can't have any plagarism, you know.

That's all the updating for today. Now, at 9:30, my sister, who is ten and has a bedtime of 9:00, has decided to do her homework and she needs the computer. Even though she could have used it any time between 2:30 and 8:00, she has to wait until now..... *mutters incoherent, vaguely evil sounding things* Ah, well. If anyone's interested, check the quiz page. It's updated.
Okay, first up, I'd like to thank the first person to sign my guest book. *gives Adam a cookie* And, yes, to answer your question, the music is from Golden Sun. It's Sol Sanctum, if I'm not mistaken.

Aww.... I wanted to be a snare drum. Ah, well. I have midterms tomorrow. We had Spanish and Honors American Lit. today, and tomorrow is Chemistry and Church History. We have the nicest religion teacher. Can you imagine, he finished giving us notes for stuff on the midterms today! What a doll. He could have waited until 5 minutes before the test, but no, we got those notes today. -_- I really need to make some emoticons to use here. Maybe I'll borrow some off of RuneVillage. Got to ask Hiker, though. This is Amy, signing off. See ya!

Well, today is the big OLSH/Cornell game. We had a pep rally at the end of the day. I hate those. School spirit - hah! Here's a convo I had with a friend who couldn't get tickets. It includes references to some comments I made about sneaking into the gym to watch the game while wearing blue and gold, Cornell colors.

Well. On another note, my plans to see LOTR is shut down. My friend has midterms next week and wants to study. (I have 'em too, but, meh.)
So, I left school today at 11:30 for a doctor's appointment. I hafta go back soon for muscial practice. We are putting on the best musical ever, Once Upon A Mattress. Hope to update later today, but don't kill me if I don't. I have three books queued to read: The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, Eragon, and First Rider's Call. Great books, them. I've read all but the last, which I read the prequel to.
Hello! Funny thing happened at the end of school today. I'm waiting for my mum to pick me up, and two of my good friends walk right by me. A second later, this freshman comes by and says hi to me before getting in her car. What's up with that? I mean, yeah, it was nice of her to talk to me, but, um, what about my friends? One of 'em is in YYS with me. Ah, well. Just another evidence of my social invisibility. On the bright side, I turned in my English paper. w00t! What exactly is "w00t" anyways? I see people using it occasionally, but I've never quite understood. Ah well. Anyways, now that my paper is handed in, I have time to read and write again. I've tried a couple of stories, but none of them seem to work out. If anyone is interested in beta reading for me, just email me.
School tomorrow. Ugh. I've got a splitting headache. Grr.... Ah, well. Anyways, here, for your entertaiment pleasure, are some quiz results. Bye.
I Am A: True Neutral Half-Elf Ranger Bard
True Neutral characters are very rare. They believe that balance is the most important thing, and will not side with any other force. They will do whatever is necessary to preserve that balance, even if it means switching allegiances suddenly.
Half-Elves are a cross between a human and an elf. They are smaller, like their elven ancestors, but have a much shorter lifespan. They are sometimes looked down upon as half-breeds, but this is rare. They have both the curious drive of humans and the patience of elves.
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.
Silvanus is the True Neutral god of nature. He is also known as the Patron of Druids. His followers believe in the perfect balance of nature, and believe that nature's bounty is preferable to any other 'civilizing' method. They wear leather or metallic scale mail, constructed of leaf-shaped scales. Silvanus's symbol is an oak leaf.

by David J Rust
What's my excuse this time? Er... My dog ate it? *sigh* Sorry for not updating sooner. To make up for it, here is a screamingly funny list of funny.
If I were an evil overlord
1.My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear Plexiglas visors, not face-concealing ones.
2.My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through.
3.My noble half-brother whose throne I usurped will be killed, not kept anonymously imprisoned in a forgotten cell of my dungeon.
4.Shooting is not too good for my enemies.
5.The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.
6.I will not gloat over my enemies' predicament before killing them.
7.When I've captured my adversary and he says, "Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?" I'll say, "No." and shoot him. No, on second thought I'll shoot him then say "No."
8.After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks' time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.
9.I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button labeled "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not Push" will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not clearly be labeled as such.
10.I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum -- a small hotel well outside my borders will work just as well.
11.I will be secure in my superiority. Therefore, I will feel no need to prove it by leaving clues in the form of riddles or leaving my weaker enemies alive to show they pose no threat.
12.One of my advisors will be an average five-year-old child. Any flaws in my plan that he is able to spot will be corrected before implementation.
13.All slain enemies will be cremated, or at least have several rounds of ammunition emptied into them, not left for dead at the bottom of the cliff. The announcement of their deaths, as well as any accompanying celebration, will be deferred until after the aforementioned disposal.
14.The hero is not entitled to a last kiss, a last cigarette, or any other form of last request.
15.I will never employ any device with a digital countdown. If I find that such a device is absolutely unavoidable, I will set it to activate when the counter reaches 117 and the hero is just putting his plan into operation.
16.I will never utter the sentence "But before I kill you, there's just one thing I want to know."
17.When I employ people as advisors, I will occasionally listen to their advice.
18.I will not have a son. Although his laughably under-planned attempt to usurp power would easily fail, it would provide a fatal distraction at a crucial point in time.
19.I will not have a daughter. She would be as beautiful as she was evil, but one look at the hero's rugged countenance and she'd betray her own father.
20.Despite its proven stress-relieving effect, I will not indulge in maniacal laughter. When so occupied, it's too easy to miss unexpected developments that a more attentive individual could adjust to accordingly.
21.I will hire a talented fashion designer to create original uniforms for my Legions of Terror, as opposed to some cheap knock-offs that make them look like Nazi stormtroopers, Roman foot soldiers, or savage Mongol hordes. All were eventually defeated and I want my troops to have a more positive mind-set.
22.No matter how tempted I am with the prospect of unlimited power, I will not consume any energy field bigger than my head.
23.I will keep a special cache of low-tech weapons and train my troops in their use. That way -- even if the heroes manage to neutralize my power generator and/or render the standard-issue energy weapons useless -- my troops will not be overrun by a handful of savages armed with spears and rocks.
24.I will maintain a realistic assessment of my strengths and weaknesses. Even though this takes some of the fun out of the job, at least I will never utter the line "No, this cannot be! I AM INVINCIBLE!!!" (After that, death is usually instantaneous.)
25.No matter how well it would perform, I will never construct any sort of machinery which is completely indestructible except for one small and virtually inaccessible vulnerable spot.
26.No matter how attractive certain members of the rebellion are, there is probably someone just as attractive who is not desperate to kill me. Therefore, I will think twice before ordering a prisoner sent to my bedchamber.
