It's that time of year again, yes I'm talking about autumn. By far my favorite season. Not only has the weather been cooling down here, but the leaves are all turning that lovely gold color. And in autumn we have my favorite holiday, Halloween! This year though my sis and I (AKA my apartment mate) are going to have more fun than usual. Our friend from California is flying over here on the 24th. All of that week we are going to be going clubbing and watching some of those horror films to get in the holiday spirit. (Feel free to suggest some spooky films if you have a favorite, my loyal LJ friends. ;) ) Also on the list of fun is the "Scream At The Beach" carnival event in Jantzen Beach Oregon, and some good ol' fashioned pumpkin carving. Needless to say, we are in for some fun.

The day is young, and already I can tell I've had too much coffee. XD I should probably get off the computer and go burn some of this pent up energy while I can. Later guys and gals.

So I am now a student at the Washington State University in Vancouver, Washington. It's proven to be a lovely, yet pricy, school thus far. The staff is nice, the buildings new, and we have a beautiful veiw of the nearby Mount St. Helens. The only thing I have issues with so far is the campus bookstore. They are very, very over priced. I can get my textbooks on amazon.com for ten times cheaper than I can for used copies from the campus store. Prices like that, I am amazed that they are still selling books to people.

I switched my major to anthropology. Art and music are by far more interesting to me, but I find that I can't handle art or music classes very well. It simply kills my creativity for some odd reason. I do great with guitar lessons, but when it comes to music classes...my mind wanders. So now I am to become an archaeologist instead. It's a field that has always fascinated me, and the university has tons to offer for that major.

I also now have a car and a brand new Tashibo laptop. :) Which has made life that much easier for me.

Other than that, there isn't a whole lot going on right now. I've been trying my hand at cartooning again, but do not feel I am good enough to post any of it online yet. My people tend to look sloppy and half-assed.

I am sorry to those of you who have been wanting me to update for years now. I don’t come to live journal as much these days. I have so much else going on in my life, that updates will be very slow for awhile.

As for what’s going on in my life right now, all I can say is, moving. I just moved in with my sister who lived in Vancouver, Washington. I still have some unpacking to do, but other than that I am settled in nicely and enjoying the freedom of supporting myself.

I am also looking for a music store job. I have excellent references being as how I have done a lot of music-related volunteer work. Plus I am very good at cleaning and tuning instruments. Wish me luck everyone.

So, here it is, my new Jackson RR guitar. They sold the one I was originally supposed to get, but luckily they still had the solid black one in stock. This is more expensive than the other one, but well worth it. It plays like a dream too. Awesome sound.

Yes! I am ordering my new guitar tomorrow! I can't wait to get it! I am getting a Jackson "Randy Rhoads" edition with beautiful graveyard design on it. They are great fun to play, and give such a crisp clean sound. Since I am ordering it straight from the makers though, I will have to wait a few weeks to get it.

The weather has been crazy around here lately. The other day we had a bad thunderstorm, complete with thunder and lightning. (That's very rare for around here!) But that was nothing compared to my misery today.

My sister and I go on long walks everyday with our German Shepherd Dog Selene. Today looked like it would be a bit rainy so we grabbed our umbrella and headed out the door. About half way through the walk and the weather decided to be cruel. Suddenly we were pelted with heavy rain and lots and lots of wind. To top that off it was colder than usual. Before long I am soaked to the point of looking like I just stepped out of the shower, and my sister is fighting to hold onto her umbrella. Then we run into a guy setting up "Detour" signs because there was a bad wreck up ahead involving a car and a semi truck. So then we have all of these cars being detoured down our favourite walking area. Which is never fun.

Sound fun? If so than I am telling this wrong. I had to go home and peel my dark denim jeans off, and now I have all of these blue marks on my legs from the dye.

Well I just got back from Hawaii. :) It was a lovely vacation but I am glad to be home again. Tomorrow I go back to class and I even have some souvenirs to give my classmates. I loved the beaches and the very large shopping malls, even though the prices were outrageous. I also got to go hottubbing every night.

Je crois il est temps pour une mis à jour. Tout s'est passé très bien avec moi et ma famille. Je n'ai pas encore tout le temps libre, mais la situation est commencent à être très bien. Ma soeur travaille maintenant, et mon père a un bon emploi. Je suis économiser de l'argent et aura assez pour s'installer à Paris d'ici l'année prochaine. Il n'ya pas grand chose d'autre passe pour le moment.

Ok, so I forgot this site existed for the longest time. Shows how busy I have been lately huh? Anyways I think it's about time for an update.

Lets see...i'm still in college and working towards an AA degree in Arts. Which is part of the reason I can't be online much these days. I am drowning in homework. Never take French 2 and Math together. Seriously, I can barely keep up most weeks. The campus is nice though, and all the professors I have seen have been really nice.

Lately my family has been going through some bad times. My mom and dad are always arguing. Mainly about Ryan, who has been an ass as of late. I accidentally hurt my dog by falling on her while we were running. Poor girl, she leapt up and knocked me over when I wasn't expecting it. I helped pay for her vet bill though so she should be ok in a few days. My mother got a concussion from falling while skating yesterday. My sis and I took her to the hospital were we worriedly waited with her. Because of that I didn't get a chance to do my French assignments and ended up half asleep for class today. What a week huh? I think I need a vacation about now.

Also I have to go to the dentist and have all four of my wisdom teeth pulled next week. Ouch. To top that off I have been sick for a few days now and sore from running.

Well I really need to get my assignments completed now. Hopefully things look up soon.

Well I had an interesting 4th of July this year. We went up to our cousin's private campsite and had a good time. Being as how the campsite was on a gravel bar right by a river, we were able to light our heavy fireworks off and swim. On the bad side though, I was kind of zombie like in between swimming and fireworks because I had only gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before. It was still fun though and I am glad that I went. Both my sister and my cousin got drunk on their asses, and I suspect that Wren, Derik and Eric did too. My dad was so loaded I'm amazed that he could stand up, which was unfortunate being as how he gets annoying when he's drunk. Of course Stephanie, me, Patrick and Wren were the ones that lite the fireworks off. We had a pretty good selection to light off too. We had lots of artillery shells, roman candles, fountains, and rockets. It was fun, but I'm glad to be home again.
