I think I have a lot of catching up to do.

I'll get to reading the five million diary entries from everyone I've missed, I promise. I just have a lot of work to keep up with as it is.

My schedule this semester is killing me, not to mention the four or so hours of volunteer work I do every week. I don't even have time to play video games! (Tragic, I know.)

I guess I'll catch you guys up instead: I'm taking art, Irish lit, biology and a subsequent (TWO HOUR!) lab, leadership, and anthropology. For which I have a paper to type tonight. Should be fun. I also volunteer as a children's tour guide at a local museum every week. No time for clubs anymore... before I got here, I was excited about campus involvement, now I'm already looking forward to a transfer. I'm hoping to go to Old Dominion University instead, it's much bigger, but there's more art and literature... and Japanese! I want to learn that so I can work in the gaming industry as an artist; most companies require that you be bilingual. Plus, it's one step closer to my goal of knowing eight languages before I die.

I turn 19 in less than a month... I feel terribly old all of a sudden! Call it a quarter life crisis if you must. I can't do cool things anymore. Like go without shoes in public. It's a good thing I've given up maturity in the workforce, picking gaming as I *suddenly* have... that way I can watch cartoons in the morning without fear. Where would I be without Avatar and Fairly Oddparents? (A. Lost, B. Better Off, C. OMGJOSHGROBAN!, D. All of the above.)

If the early morning counts, I don't know what to do with myself without Samurai Champloo or Evangelion. That's another story for another day.

Um... beyond that I have a bunch of icky sketchy artwork for you to pretend to like. Have fun!

Honestly, of all that I'm not sure what I've already posted and what I haven't. I'm sorry if there are repeats, I just wanted to play it safe. I was gonna play the, "Guess if that JRocker is a boy or a girl!" game, but I figured this:

Well, I've missed you guys! *big hugs*
