Yep, just writing an entry before I'm off on vacation tomorrow.

I'll be off to Universal Studios and Catalina Island. Down to So Cal I go. So yah... I'll be spending probably two days visiting my aunt and uncle and going to Universal Studios and the rest of the time will probably be spent on Catalina Island. I'll be back on Thursday. I'll try to post if I can, but I'm not sure if I can get to a computer. -_-

I haven't been to Catalina Island for a long time! How long has it been...? I don't know... four, five years? Yah... my parents have taken me there before. It's an alright place. It reminds me of Hawaii with all the commercialization. ^_^; At least it's not quite as bad as that. I suppose it's not such a horrible thing to visit them again....

But I don't want to go on vacation, darnit! I'm comfortable right here! I don't want to leave! Why does my dad have to drag the family on a vacation!? Bah! I just want to stay here and have fun with my friends and spend my days peacefully playing SCII. Is that so much to ask!? Meh....

We're driving down tomorrow. -_- Yah, that means a boring seven hour car ride. Joy. I need to think of things to do to keep myself occupied. I'm gonna burn some music CDs later, but that's not gonna sustain me for so many hours! I need something else to do! Nyeh... I'm off now to pack and think of things to bring with me so that I'm not bored out of my mind in the car. -_-

Ah... today was a good day. ^_^

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent the day with my good friend Karen. I tell you, it's been entirely too long since I last saw her. I missed seeing her about three months back, so I just had to do something with her this time because she's going back to school on Monday and I'm only going to be around for a little while longer. Vacation and all.... So I spent the day with her and her room mate, who's kinda staying with her for a week or so.

We started the day by going to MGL. Now she's not a gamer, so why did we go? We played golf. Yes, we went to Golfland to play golf. Hey, it's something I haven't done in a long time and something she and her room mate have ever done, so we supposed that it would be something fun to do. So yah, the golfing was fun.

Afterwards, back to her house. We did some fooding. Mmm~ food.... Then a movie. We watched U-571, which is a nice period piece about Americans during WWII trying to get some kind of coding device from a German U-boat (submarine). It was pretty intense. There were so many of those "hold your breath" types of moments. Good stuff. I liked it.

That was about all we did. I know it wasn't much, but I really enjoyed myself. I always enjoy myself whenever I'm with Karen. I don't know how to describe it, but whenever I'm with her, I can forget about everything and just have fun. So yah... now that I've spent time with her, I'm good and set to wait about four months to see her again.

Bah... I don't know what I'm typing....

So friends with relationship stuff and a "I used to like you" have a gotten me thinking. Do I really have high standards in girls? I don't know.... I guess these kinds of things have been running through my head from time to time because Love Hina put me in such a sappy mood. Well... I'm not sure.... My friend has mentioned to me once that he thought that I had high standards in women. Now I personally don't think so. There are so many different types of girls that I've taken a liking to before. It's just that... I don't know... I guess I'm just waiting for the right one. Oh whatever... I'm typing but I really don't know what I want to say. -_-;

I guess I just really need to spend some time with someone I hold dear, which is why I'm so psyched about tomorrow. I'm spending time with my friend Karen. She's a very special person to me. Now don't get me wrong. We're not like that. She's just a really close friend and someone I care for deeply. I haven't spent any time with her in maybe about six months. Yah, college and such. So yah... I guess spending some time with her will really pick up my spirits a bit.

Now don't let the tone of my entry lead you to believe that I'm depressed or anything. Far from it. It's just that... yah... I feel kinda lonely sometimes. Although that's a feeling I'm rather accustomed to, so I can take it pretty well.

Current conquest record (per character): about 370 wins, 75 loses

Posted by Tsubasa @ 11:40 PM PST [Link]

I was meaning to post last night, but the sister stole the computer and went online. =(

I haven't really been up to much outside of going to MGL again. ^_^ Hana, I need to correct you. It hasn't been "almost daily," it has been daily. ^_^ Anyway, been plunking more and more money into the SCII machine. ^_^; My record currently stands at about 330 wins and 70 loses per character. ^_^ That means that my records are good enough to finally rank my characters as third and fourth best characters on the machine. Their AI's not bad either. I see them beat up on people pretty often. My little ones make me proud. ^_^

I've been going out too much.... My internal clock's been thrown off! I don't know... I can't seem to have a realistic grasp of time anymore. I guess it's just because I'm not used to it. Bleh....

Everyone's gone off to school now! I still have slightly under a month until my school begins.... That leaves me with even less playmates. =( But I guess that's a little selfish of me.... Everyone who's off to school, good luck! I hope your years/semesters/quarters aren't too hard on you.

Heh heh... summer's nearing an end and from the way things are looking, tsuNU and nakoNU aren't going to be completed by its end. ^_^; Sorry folks, but all this MGLing has taken many precious working hours out of my day. I would work on it at night, but like I said, my internal clock's all thrown off, so I by then I just don't feel like it or something. Yah, I'll get it up eventually. I'm hoping that I can do it before my school starts.

Announcement folks:
I'll be off on vacation this weekend into next week. I'll be off to the LA area to go to Universal Studios and then Catalina Island for a while. I'll be going this Saturday and I'll be back I think it was Thursday. I really don't want to go, but the parents want to go on a family vacation. =( So yah... don't expect me to make any entries during that time. I'll try to, but I really doubt I'll be able to get to a computer. Darn... people are going to pass up my record in conquest.... Gwar....

*Feeling slightly groggy*

Yesterday I went out for a family dinner. Apparently some not quite so distant in relationship, but distant in distance relatives visited. If that kinda went by you there, my first and second cousins from China visited. My aunt felt that this was a really big event or something, so she invited the entire family to dinner at some Chinese/Vietnamese seafood restaurant. You know what the best thing about it was? Each table got to order what they wanted. ^_^ Well, the way it goes in my family is that the youngin's generally take a table for themselves. Now I don't know about you, but when it comes to youngin's in my family, we know how to order when there's no money restriction. ^_^ There was lobster, crab, frogs legs, prawns, fish.... All of it was great too. Well... the fish could have been better. Not only was it mediocre, it didn't taste fresh. =( Oh well... the rest was fabulous. ^_^ Mmm~....

Afterwards, I went over to my cousins' house. There, we watched the movie "The Sweetest Thing" because it was lying on the table and my other cousin insisted that it was a good movie. Well... it was alright, but I wouldn't have gone out of my way to see it. Afterwards, we were trying to think of something to do. Apparently several of them wanted to go karaokeing. Alright... it was kinda one something in the morning. ^_^; Then we eyed some Disney animated movies.... ^_^; Yah, we popped in movies and fastforwarded to the musical portions. ^_^; Now I suppose that was kinda entertaining. Although I didn't really sing because karaokeing isn't really my cup of tea. Besides, I didn't know the lyrics. ^_^;

Aside from that, went to Golfland again. Currently my characters have about 225 wins and 50 losses. Woo.
