Major happenings in Fraser....ALREADY....at least in the family home.
Ok...so this time I actually got stuff to write rather than just random thoughts.

So my friend Alex and I got together with my folks, and we all went on up to the restaurant that we usually go to as a family. We hung out, partook in many slices of pizza, and traded stories on how life's been going for each of us.

Eventually, this led to me asking my mom and dad, "So, how're Abby and Storm (my two cats)?" That when my parents kind of exchanged glances with each other. My smile, I think, kind of went into a shock phase. My dad broke the silence by saying, "About that...Storm's (the oldest of the two cats...17) not doing so good. We woke up this morning and found that everything he ate: food, liquid, treats, anything...was going right through him and coming out entirely liquid. So, your mom and I took him to the vet to see what was wrong. The doctor said that he had absolutely no muscles in his body, he is getting tired incredibly easy, and his bowels are...well, you've seen what's wrong with him. He was just getting old. So, to make sure he wasn't suffering like our last pet did when he got old, we decided to put him down."

And just like that, my mental image of me coming home to two cats waiting for me at the door....just shattered. It's weird. When I first heard my dad said this...I really didn't feel anything. I was kinda expecting it for a long time. Storm was just deteriorating in front of my eyes every time I came home. He was an old, old cat. Last time I saw him, he didn't do anything except sleep in his bed. Moreover, when I petted him, he loved the fact that I was petting him, but when I did, all i felt was skin and bone. I get this feeling that maybe a week or two down the road, it might hit me hard...but for right now, I have this, "I kind of expected it" mindset. Let's just hope it stays that way for a while.

Ok, so, I had a MAJOR Silent Hill moment driving Alex home. In my hometown...the whole area is covered with THICK fog. I'm talking when I drove down this patch of road that had one streetlight on, I didn't see the light until I was right under it. The furthest I could see was probably 25 yards, tops. So, this whole time, I was expected a tornado siren to go off and the whole world turn into Rust Land...or at least Pyramid Head stepping out into the middle of the road and trying to cut my Dad's car in half. Either way, I would've ran my ass off.

Anyway, it's getting late...I should probably get some sleep in my BIG bed. Yay for being able to spread out:D G'night guys!

Random Thoughts III
I think I'll make this "Random Thoughts" thing a typical occurrence...it's fun to write journal entries like this ^_^

My brother hasn't been back in Michigan for even a week, and he's already doing his bartending gig again...that was fast

Ich Liebe Dich...but that's a given right?;)

Japan Club finally has structure again

The invasion and the Eclipse starts next week...too bad I've already seen it online;)

Speaking of Avatar, after re-watching "The Blind Bandit"...I'm surprised Toph hasn't gotten more character development like Sokka and Katara have already.

Is it bad that my wrist is kinda sore from completing "Through the Fire and the Flames" on GHIII last night?

"Ah...look at all the lovely people" ...damn it Beatles!!!

I'm graduating in April....and I still don't know what I'm doing once I graduate Hopefully Christmas and Thanksgiving break can give me some insight

Hm..it's cold enough for winter...so where's the snow?

Mental Note
Never try to yell to be goofy at a friend's house when you're still trying to get fully over a cold. That = having your throat hurt wose. Bah, it was still fun though:P.

Well now that I'm back from Tom's house, I think some homework is in order. At least I should get some stats homework finished/started before i go to bed tonight. Yay for working ahead!!

Ich Liebe dich:D

How's this for a role switch?
Well how's this for a switch? Katie goes to bed at a reasonable hour, and I stay out in the lobby till 3:30am talking to people. Hm...maybe...if I stay up a little longer, Katie might be up...I don't know how long I'll last though. If I don't catch ya online, I'll just talk to ya when I either regain consciousness, or when I get up in the morning sweetie:D

Ich liebe dich:D

The Secret
What is it?

Well, to be quite honest with you, after seeing the book on shelves, the DVDs going off the shelves, I thought that there had to be some merit. Coincidentally, my parents gave me the DVD of The Secret for Christmas a year ago. I never really thought that much of it until tonight. So I finally sat down and watched the DVD. While most of it kinda seemed like mystic mumbo-jumbo, some of it actually made sense to me.

So, what is The Secret? It is The Law of Attraction. Whatever you think about and feel about strongly, whatever you want, whatever you desire etc., if you constantly think about it and truly believe it whatever it is, it will come to you. Whatever you think about, both positive and negative, it will come to you. Whether it be love, money, even something to drink...if you honestly and truly believe you want it, it will come to you.

I actually tried this when I kind of skimmed through the DVD a year ago. All I thought about how thirsty I was, but I was kind of lazy and didn't wanna get up. So, I kept thinking "I want a Coke." Moreover, I kept that not only in my head, but I truly believed that I wanted one. Five minutes later, my mom peeks her head down the basement and goes, "Hey Troy I'm grabbing a drink out of the garage, you want one?" I was a little freaked out at that point...But I kind of had this little, "Huh..it does work" moments.

So...yea that's my little self help rant...hope I didn't bore anyone

Just random thoughts from a college student:

In presenting a speech I had this morning, I come to realize that audiences tend to respond more to emotional things than facts. My audience responded more to jokes and humor than concrete facts. Making my audience laugh was my strongest weapon. It proves my theory correct: Laughter can be one's best weapon.

Hm, I should probably take out the garbage shouldn't I?

You ever try to fart and blow your nose at the same time? You can't do them together can ya? It's like you'll loose COMPLETE control...and clean far more of the house than you had intended.

I need a haircut...i suddenly realize why I got rid of the long hair in the first place...so much for trying to look like a rocker.

300 is a movie for everyone. For the guys, there's 300 bad asses kicking ass and being quite cocky about it. For the women, 300 ripped guys kicking ass in underwear and capes...fun for the whole family ^_^

Rock Band's set list is quite good!

Ich Liebe Dich ;)

What am I gonna do once I get outta here?

I can finally relax (sort of) this weekend

Paprika is being shown at the Little Theater this weekend...I should go see it.

Why is the song "For Whom the Bell Tolls" stuck in my head? Oh well, it's a good song.

Can anybody please tell me how to pictures in the journal background. I forgot how. Thank you.

Not doing much these days but working. All sisters are married now. I'm the only one left unmarried. Hard enough getting a girlfriend let alone thinking about a future marriage. Life is crazy.........but fun.

Hope you all are doing good. Peace out.

I currently have a programming project that is due at midnight on sunday. I have been working on it all week. It is worth 10% of my grade. It currently totals well over 1,000 lines. I thought I'd be able to finish it by tonight. I was wrong.

As I see it, I have either written a complete mess that I will need to scrap and completely redo, or I have written acceptable code, but the compiler I am using is glitching on me and I will need to re-enter it anyways.

Either way, I still have a diagram that I am required to make.

Either way, I still need to make a file to compile this bastard in a linux environment.

Either way, I probably won't get to go swimming with my friends on Sunday.

Either way, I am MASSIVELY pissed...

...at this project for being absurdly large...

...at my professor for assigning the project and assuming we would be able to complete it after listening to his broken english and meandering powerpoint slides...

...at my TA's for not being available to help on weekends...

...at MSU for allowing such an unnecessarily difficult class to exist...

...at whoever the hell developed class inheritence in C++...

...at whoever the hell designed Microsoft Visual Studio in all it's glitchy glory, with all it's vague error messages that half the writers of the program probably couldn't decypher...

...and at Charles Babbage for originally proposing the concept of the computer.

In essence, I am so pissed that I could probably rip, not merely one, nor two nor three, nor even 50, but rather 100 kittens in half... ...lengthwise... ...with my bare hands.

Well, wish me luck I suppose.

And if I suffer a complete mental breakdown and wind up either dead or in a permenant coma, well, it was great knowing you all.
