You know what I think I’ve decided? I have too many things -..- Like, I can totally justify music, movies, and usable things, but there are some things that I love and don’t need. I’ve been wanting an iPhone for ages, and when the iPhone 4 came out I really began to fixate on it. And , yes, I need a new cell, and yes, it would be extremely useful because it’s so much more than a phone… but really, it’s just much too expensive. And Apple will probably come out with the iPhone5 in a year, followed by 6 and 7 and so on and so forth. And I’ll rage over it and get really frustrated (not too unlike my episode with iLife11). So from now on, unless it’s something versatile and useful, no more statues, or figurines or jewelry. I mean, I have 15 Amazon.com wish lists full of stuff I’d like because it’s unique or special, but if it’s not in some way useful or enjoyable, I shouldn’t be getting it. The whole iPhone thing really made me see how laden down I am with the want for all this stuff and how it’s not helping! I have these southern belle statutes, and these painted ponies and a bunch of others, and all they do…is gather dust. Now, the little mushrooms I bought, they are decorative and very inexpensive, and not harming anything so that’s an exception. But so much of this stuff costs an arm and a leg, and I literally cannot condone it anymore. And any friends that I have that still buy me stuff for my birthday, I know everyone says it’s not ‘personal’ but I love gift certificates. J!NX, iTunes, Amazon and Wal-Mart (or Target or GameStop or whatever) those are awesome places that I’m always going to and I wish I had more money to get stuff there.
This momentary freak out brought to you by Jim Henson (because if he never would’ve done that Junkyard lady in Labyrinth, I wouldn’t have had something to avoid).
I’m sorry if this came off as ‘ranty’ but I hate materialism, and I realize this notion I have that stuff=happiness is just wrong. And I don’t really think that stuff=happiness, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting stuff. And you’re never going to stop wanting stuff, but you can’t expect to be more content if what you’re wanting is all useless…. not that I don’t enjoy my useless stuff, but …well, in the long run it’s just stuff =..=‘ At least you get enjoyment out of music and movies, and clothes are always useful. So, from now on Usefulness has be be a factor…it can’t just depend on how much I want it…. so… uh… Useful > Want….I’ve been spending too much time in algebra =..=
In other news, the church/youth Bonfire is tomorrow night, so I’ve been cleaning my house today. It kinda sucks because I was hoping to really get my paper for English Comp all together….but it’s becoming really hard for me to focus with all this stuff to do. I’ve been cleaning and all, and I’ve still gotta go and clean the church…and there’s that wonderful sociology test to study for Monday =..= Conditions are just not as ideal as I’d like…then again, when are they ever. I’ve got all my research lined up at least. I just need to throw it all together.
Did I tell everyone that my camcorder is dying? Yeah… It is. So, my vlog posts have been few and far between. I have my laptop camera, but it’s not quite as good so…I’m hesitant. Still, I’ll be posting more as soon as these stupid tests and papers are out of the way. I just wish my camera would’ve waited till after I go visit Reiko to break down.
I think that’s all for now…or at least as much as I want to write (I need to leave other stuff out so’s I’ve got something to vlog about :). I’ll type later, Sunshines.
Age: 27 Sex: Female Where you are from: Originally from south Louisiana (about 40 miles south of New Orleans to be precise). Currently living in Northern Arkansas (about 30 miles south of Branson, MO to be precise :3). What you’re hobbies/interests are: I have a slight interest in everything… :) but my more keen interests are writing, reading, movies, taking pictures and more recently vlogging. I have many fandoms and anything that attributes more to them always makes me happy. Who your favorite band is: Thousand Foot Krutch. What book you are currently reading: Alas, though my dresser has a stack of books on it, the only books I’m reading are college books -..-‘ Who is your biggest hero: Batman. Oh wait…you mean personally :3 Ok, then I’ll be cheesy and say my parents. Why you follow my tumblr: There are only a few reasons I follow anyone on Tumblr: 1) I know you from some other medium. 2) We have similar interests. 3) I find you interesting. 4) I find you amusing. As for which reason I follow your tumblr specifically….I’ll just leave it for you to assume :3 Describe yourself: I am unimportant. No really. My life is boring and useless and there’s nothing more to it than that. However, I am quirky and unique (not the same thing, I assure you). I think I’m able to get along with people so well because I’m so laid back. I don’t really care about differences that much (in opinions or backgrounds or whatever). If I disagree with you about anything then it’s not grounds to start a jihad or anything, we just don’t agree…and that’s fine with me.
And anything else you want to write. I’d love it if I could write my book….but I have a feeling that’s not exactly what you’re asking ^..^
Also let me know if you fine with me posting it Yes, I’m quite ok with you posting ‘it’.
“A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It’s a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys.”—Barbara Holland
Thrall. I love his story, and I’ve read Lord of the Clans a million times, and I love Thrall’s story, and how even though such great atrocities were committed towards him by humanity, he rises above that. He’s perfectly aware of human vices but he doesn’t confine humans to those vices. He’s better because of his past as opposed to always being bound by it. So…yeah. I like his story.
Sometimes I love Sylvanas, but other times…not so much. I mean, she’s always epic, but sometimes she’s very cruel, and she doesn’t seem to see that cruelty. I think I respect her, but I don’t know that I’d ever trust her…. she’s got a great singing voice :3
I like Cairne Bloodhoof too, but I’m trying not to get too attached to him ;_;
Shocking, really since I’m so crazy about Sin’dorei and Trolls and all, but my favorite race, really, would be the Tauren :) I could list all their good points, but the deciding factor was really lifestyle.
I’m totally a Horde chick…. Blood elves are awesome, but they’re kinda snotty (or their society can be), and Trolls are epic but I’d have a serious inferiority complex, Orcs are much too savage for my taste, and how can anyone really ‘live’ with the Forsaken? So yeah. Tauren for me :)
I thought to myself, setting everything aside and knowing what you know about background and lore and everything…where in Azeroth would you prefer to live? …Thunder Bluff. With the Tauren. I love their ways and their people, and I can image living contently there.
Hunter. Something about being ranged, and solo and yet you’re not really solo because you have pet (that can tank)…I dunno. I just like it. People have been saying that I’m kinda partial because of Yaviel, my Sin’dorei Farstrider….maybe that’s true, but it’s what works for me :)
adjective just begun and so not fully formed or developed; rudimentary : a still inchoate democracy. • Law (of an offense, such as incitement or conspiracy) anticipating a further criminal act.
DERIVATIVES inchoately adverb inchoateness noun
ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: from Latin inchoatus, past participle ofinchoare, variant of incohare ‘begin.’
USAGE Because inchoate means ‘just begun and so not fully formed or developed,’ a sense of ‘disorder’ may be implied. But to extend the usage of inchoate to mean ‘chaotic, confused, incoherent’ (: he speaks in aninchoate manner) is incorrect, although not uncommon. Perhaps even more common are incorrect pronunciations of inchoate, such as |inˈch ōt|, which assumes two syllables (rather than three) and a ch sound like that of chair or chosen (rather than a k sound like that of charisma orchorus).
…ok, I know that it’s old and all, but was anyone else traumatized by last Supernatural with Dean going Vamp and Sam being so callous? I mean, I expected the shock and terror during and immediately after, but it’s been a while…. and I’m still anxious o..o
Ah geeze, really? *sigh* ok… well… Uh. Depends on the exact fandom/genre I suppose. And wait a second, what are you asking exactly? I mean… are you asking which is the best in my mind, or which I’d rather be or…which would win in a fight? o..o I’m confused…
